This is a true story that happened with a caller to Islam from Egypt called Amr Khalid. He said, “3 days ago I received an email from a young lady from Australia and the email reads as follows (and I quote)”:

“I am a young Lebanese lady that has a Muslim father and a Christian mother. For the first 10 years of my life I lived in Lebanon, then we migrated to Australia which brought an end to my relationship and to my connection with the middle east. I am currently 22 years of age and after migrating to Australia my association with my religion also ended completely. The only thing I know is that I am a Muslimah, that’s it. I don’t know what the Quran looks like, I don’t know how to pray and the religion plays no significance in my life. My mother and father separated, each one remarrying another person. I entered university, my mother and father left Australia, leaving me behind alone with no family, no brothers and sisters. I know nothing about my ancestry in Lebanon. I lived alone and I had to work to spend on myself. I attended university in the mornings and worked in a bar in the evenings. I have a boyfriend and I have not left out any Haraam (sinful actions) except having done it without any shame. I am fully westernised. I know a little bit of Arabic and because I am extremely beautiful I joined the beauty competition in New Zealand and won in this competition. I am planning to join a bigger competition in New Zealand and I am currently modelling for magazines. During this time I used to visit a Lebanese family residing in Australia… and I saw a Ramadan episode on television talking about modesty. The episode had it’s web address displayed. I went through a nervous breakdown, if it was as though this episode was addressing me directly. I am sending you this email to ask, is it possible for Allah to accept me, in other words forgive me.”

And this is where Sarah’s email ends.

Glory be to the Creator. No matter how long a person’s Iman (faith) is, the soul of a person long’s for it’s creator, just as the stomach hungers for food, so to does the soul long for it’s Creator. This caller to Islam wrote back advising her about the conditions of repentance and that Allah will of course forgive her if she repents. Two days later she contacts Amru Khalid and she says:

“I have repented to Allah and I left my boyfriend and promised to never see him again.”

After another two days she contacts him and says:

“I want to learn how to pray.”

Then another 2 days pass and she says:

“I would like some Quranic audio tapes.”

So he sends her some tapes via DHL courier. A week goes by and he doesn’t hear from her until she contacts him and informs him:

“I have retracted my beauty title for the particular city in New Zealand.”

Then came the surprise she contacted him saying:

“I have put on the Hijab”.

However the story does not end here. Two days after putting on the Hijab, she experiences some sharp pain and visits the doctor. After a few tests she is diagnosed with brain cancer and told that her days are limited. She enters the hospital to be operated on, and the doctors in Australia inform that the success rate of this operation is 20%. This is what the doctors said. As for Sarah, listen to what she had to say:

“I am pleased to meet Allah. I am happy that I repented prior to finding out about my illness. I don’t know whether my mother and father will know about my situation. If I live, I will support your website, for this website is my window to Islam”

To the Creator we belong, and to the Creator we will return.

May Allah have mercy on Sarah who died at the age of 22……

They buried her with the Muslims in New Zealand. Prior to hear death, she sent a short letter to Amru Khalid saying:

“I lived far away from my Lord for 22 years but I repented and turned back to Allah 3 weeks ago. I don’t know many Muslims beside you and this internet forum. I urge you to make dua’a (pray) for me that Allah has mercy on me and to forgive me. Make dua’a (pray) to Allah to guide my mother for she does not know anything about me….signed Sarah”

Great story. Inshallah her Duas were accepted and she will witness nothing but heaven.
Amru Khaled is one of the most inspirational people you can meet. He came to our university a few years ago for a khitab. After he was done I saw girls just weeping outside and some guys had a 180 degree turn around. He really knows how to reach the younger generation. I am glad that the only Muslim that she was in contact with was actually Amru Khalid.
