An 8 Years Old Child accepting Islam!


The American  Muslim Child who studied Islam at the age of 6 announced his acceptance at the age of 8

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, No child is born except on Al- Fitrah (Islam) and then his parents make him a Jewish, Christian or Magian… ” [Sahih Muslim]

Alexander Fretz was born of  two Christian parents in 1990. His mother decided, from the very beginning, to allow him to choose whatever religion he wants for himself. So, she bought him various religious books, and after reading a certain book, the child announced that he become a Muslim, and that was at the age of 8. Moreover, he learned everything about Islam such as prayer, Qur’an memorization, calling to prayer (Azan), and many of the Islamic laws before meeting any Muslims!
He chose to be named Mohammed Abdullah following the example of Prophet  Muhammad (peace be upon him)whom he loved.
He was invited by one of the Islamic channels, and while the channel’s presenter was preparing to ask the young child questions, he was surprised that the child suddenly asked him: “How can I perform hajj and umrah ( pilgrimage)? Is the travel expensive? From where do you  buy the appropriate clothes  for this?”
The young child was famous in his school, and when the time of prayer comes, he stands alone calling  to prayer and then performs it.
The TV presenter asked him, “Do you face problems or disturbances with that?”,  the child replied with a broken heart, “Some prayers pass me sometimes because I don’ t know the exact time for prayer!”
He was asked, “What attracted you to Islam?” He replied, “The more I read about it, the more I loved it.”
He was asked, “What are your aspirations?” He replied with longing, “First, Iwant to become a photographer so that I can convey the right image of Muslims because it pains me much to see the filthy American films which try to tarnish the image of my beloved Mohammed (peace be upon him). Second:  is to go to Makkah and kiss the black stone.”
He was asked, “What are some of your other aspirations?” He replied, “I hope that Palestine would return to Muslims as this is their land and it was stripped by Isreal from them!”
He was asked, “Do you eat pork with your parents?” He replied, “Pigs are a very filthy animal, I don’t eat it neither do I know how people can eat it.” He was asked, “Do you pray in school?” He replied, “Yes, and I have found a secret place in the library where I can pray everyday.”
Then the Maghrib prayer entered (while he was in the interview) he looked at the presenter and said, “Would you allow me to raise the Azan?”
Then he got up and called the Azan, something that made the presenter weep!
