A Ugandan Muslim boy, the name of Shalawi Siraje, He is a hafidh from Uganda Madrasah, starred in a viral video with him reciting Qur’an whilst working as a cleaner in a Masjid in Qatar.
His employer, like many others people, saw the video and made a huge gesture by giving him a new job as a Muadhin and Imam in different Masjid to better utilize his breath-taking voice.
Siraje told the reason for this remarkable chain of events was very simple.
“Remember Allah everywhere, whether you are working or not”
Finally, as parting advice to our readers, he said:
“Many people think that Islam is for the Arabs, but they are wrong. Islam is for all creatures on this Universe. That is why when I was reciting, many people made comments maybe thinking this was impossible because I am black, not well-off, and a cleaner. But rather the truth is, the Qur’an is not just for Arabs, it is for the whole of mankind.”
He seems to be more satisfied and happy than the most richest person on earth. May Allah guide us to the straight path and grant us all Jannah. Aameen.
