THE STORY OF THE CHILD WHO ACCEPTED ISLAM AT THE AGE OF 8.

     The American Muslim child who studied Islam at the
age of 6 announced his acceptance at the age of 8.
Alexander Fretz was born Christian parents in 1990
and his mother chose from the very beginning to
allow him to choose what religion he wants for
himself. She bought him various religious books and
after a close look, he announced that he was a
Muslim at the age of 8.( *Moreover, he learned
everything about Islam such as prayer, Qur’an
memorization, calling the athan, and many of the
Shariah laws before meeting one Muslim!
He chose to be named Mohammed Abdullah following
the example of the Prophet whom he loved.
He was invited by one of the Islamic channels
accompanied by his mother and while the host was
preparing to ask the young child questions, he was
surprised that the child was doing the questioning…he
asked, “How can I perform hajj and umrah? Is the
travel expensive? Where did you buy the clothes of
Ihram?”
The young child was popular in his school and when
the time of prayer comes, he stands alone calling
the adhan and prays.
The host asked him, “Do you face problems or
disturbances with that?”, So he 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 that I become a
photographer so that I can convey the right image
of the Muslims because it pains me much to see
the filthy American films which tries to tarnish the
image of my beloved Mohammad (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam). The 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 the Isreal from them!”
He was asked, “Do you eat pork with your parents?” He
replied, “Pigs is 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 Maghrib prayer entered (while he was in the
interview) when he looked at the host and said,
“Would you allow me to raise the athan?”
Then he got up and called the Adhan which caused the
host to tear up and cry.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said,
“There is none born but is created to his true
nature (Islam). It is his parents who make him a
Jew or a Christian.” — Sahih Muslim
