Dhu al-Qi'dah 26, 1430 A.H, November 14, 2009

An American millionaire, Mark Shaffer declared his Islam in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, 17th October 2009. Mark was at that time on a holiday in Saudi Arabia to visit some famous cities like Riyadh, Abha and Jeddah for 10 days.

Mark is a well-known millionaire and also an practiced lawyer in Los Angeles, specializing in cases of civil laws. The last big case he handled was the case of the famous American pop singer, Michael Jackson, a week before he passed away.

A tourist guide who accompanied Mark for 10 days in Saudi Arabia, Dhawi Ben Nashir told: Since he set foot for the first time in Saudi Arabia, Mark already started to ask question about Islam and Solat. As soon as he arrived in Saudi, Mark stayed in Riyadh for two days. While in Riyadh, Mark was very interested in Islam. After moving to Najran, we went to Abha and Al-Ula. There, his fascination on Islam grew more obvious, especially the time when we ventured out into the desert.

Mark was amazed to see three Saudi youths who were in our group in Al-Ula, performing solat in the expanse of the very wide desert. A very fantastic panorama indeed.

After two days in Al-Ula, we went to Al-Juf. As soon as we arrived in Al-Juf, Mark asked if I could get him some books on Islam. I then obtained some books on Islam for him. Mark read all those books. The next morning, he asked me to teach him how to perform solat. I then taught him how to pray and take wudhu (ablution). Then, he joined me and performed solat beside me.

After solat, Mark told me that he felt peace in his soul. On Thursday afternoon, we left Al-Ula heading for Jeddah. He looked very serious throughout the journey reading those books about Islam. On Friday morning, we visited the old town of Jeddah. Before the time for the Friday prayer approached, we went back to the hotel and I excused myself to go for the Friday prayer. Then, Mark told me: I would like to join you for the Friday prayer so that I can witness myself how the Friday prayer is like. So I answered: welcome…

We then went to a masjid which was not far from the hotel where we stayed in Jeddah. Since we were quite late, I and many other jamaah had to pray outside, as the number of jamaah was overflowing. I could see Mark observing the jamaah, especially after the Friday prayer was completed, when everybody was shaking hands and embracing each other with radiant and happy faces. Mark was very impressed with what he saw.
When we return to the hotel, Mark suddenly told me that he wanted to become a Muslim. So I said to him: Please have a shower first. After Mark took the shower, I guided him in saying the kalimah of shahadah (declaration of faith) and then he prayed two rakaah. Later on, Mark expressed his desire to visit the Masjidil Haram in Makkah and perform solat there before leaving Saudi Arabia.

In order to fulfill his wish, we went to the Da’wah and Irshad office in the area of Al-Hamro’, Jeddah, to obtain a formal proof of his conversion to Islam, so that he would be allowed to enter the city of Makkah and Masjidil Haram. Then, Mark was given a temporary certificate of his conversion to Islam. As a number of group members who participated in Mark’s visit to Saudi Arabia had to go back to America on Saturday afternoon, Al-Hamdulillah, Ustadz Muhammad Turkistani was willing to send Mark to the Holy Land of Makkah that same morning.

Regarding Mark’s visit to Masjidil Haram, Ustadz Muhammad Turkistani narrated: After Mark obtained his temporary certificate, we straight away departed heading for the noble Masjidil Haram. When he witnessed the Masjidil Haram, he face looked radiant and it emanated an extraordinary happiness. When we entered the Masjidil Haram and witnessed the Ka’bah for ourselves, his happiness increased. By Allah, I could not express that scene with words. After performing the tawaf around the noble Ka’bah, we performed the sunnah solat and went out of Masjidil Haram. I could see Mark very reluctantly wanting to leave Masjidil Haram.

After Mark declared his Islamic faith, he had the chance to express his happiness in Al-Riyadh Newspaper saying: I could not express my feeling at this time but I am being reborn and my life has just started… then he added: I am very happy. This happiness that I am feeling could not be expressed in words especially when I visited the Masjidil Haram and noble Ka’bah.

Regarding his next step after his conversion to Islam, Mark explained: I will learn more about Islam, I will delve deeper into this religion of Allah (Islam) and come back to Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj.

As to what impelled him into converting to Islam, Mark explained: I have already had information about Islam, but it was very limited. When I visited Saudi Arabia and personally witnessed the Muslims there, and saw how they performed the solat, I felt a very strong drive to know more about Islam. When I read true informations about Islam, I became confident that Islam is a religion of haq (truth).

Sunday morning, 18th October 2009, Mark left the Airport of King Abdul Aziz Jeddah heading for America. When filling in the immigration form before leaving Jeddah, Mark wrote ISLAM as his religion.

JUTAWAN AS YANG JUGA PEGUAMCARA MICHAEL JACKSON MASUK ISLAM

Seorang jutawan Amerika, Mark Shaffer mendeklarasikan keislamannya di Saudi Arabia pada hari Sabtu 17 Oktober 2009 yang lalu. Saat itu Mark sedang berwisata ke Saudi Arabia untuk mengunjungi beberapa kota terkenal seperti Riyadh, Abha dan Jeddah selama 10 hari.

Mark adalah seorang jutawan terkenal dan pengacara kawakan di Los Angeles Amerika Serikat khususnya terkait hukum perdata. Kasus besar terakhir yang ditanganinya ialah terkait dengan penyanyi pop terkenal Amerika Michel Jackson sepekan sebelum ia meninggal.

Seorang guide wisata yang menemani Mark selama 10 hari di Saudi, Dhawi Ben Nashir menceritakan : Sejak menginjakkan kakinya pertama kali di Saudi Mark mulai bertanya tentang Islam dan shalat. Sesampai di Saudi, Mark menginap di kota Riyadh selama dua hari. Selama di Riyadh Mark sangat concern pada Islam. Setelah itu kami pindah ke kota Najran, terus ke Abha dan Al-Ula. Di sana terlihat sekali ketertarikannya pada Islam, Khususnya saat kami keluar berwisata ke padang pasir. Mark kaget saat meilahat tiga pemuda Saudi yang mendampingi kami di Al-Ula, karena mereka shalat di atas bentangan padang pasir yang amat luas. Sungguh sebuah pemandangan yang sangat menakjubkan.

Setelah dua hari di Al-Ula, kami pergi ke Al-Juf. Sesampai di Al-Juf, Mark minta dicarikan buku-buku tentang Islam. Lalu saya berikan beberapa buku tentang Islam. Semua buku tersebut dibaca habis oleh Mark. Esok paginya, dia minta saya mengajarkannya shalat. Sayapun mengajarkannya shalat dan bagaimana cara berwudhuk. Lalu dia ikut shalat di samping saya.

Setelah shalat, Mark bercerita bahwa dia sekarang sangat tentram jiwanya. Sore Kamisnya, kami meninggalkan Al-Ula menuju kota Jeddah. Selama di perjalanan dia terlihat serius sekali membaca buku-buku tentag Islam. Pagi hari Jumatnya, kami mengunjungi kota tua Jeddah. Sebelum waktu sahalat Jumat masuk, kami kembali ke hotel dan saya minta izin padanya untuk shalat Jumat. Saat itu Mark berkata pada saya : Saya ingin ikut Anda shalat Jumat agar saya menyaksikannya seperti apa shalat Jumat itu. Lalu saya jawab : welcome…

Kamipun pergi ke sebuah masjid yang tidak jauh dari hotel tempat kami menginap di Jeddah. Karena agak terlambat, saya dan sebagian jamaah shalat di luar masjid karena jamaahnya yang mebludak. Terlihat Mark mengamati jamaah apalagi setelah selesai shalat Jumat, mereka salaing bersalam-salaman dengan wajah yang cerah dan gembira. Mark semakin kagung dengan pemandangan tersebut.

Setelah kami pulang ke hotel, tiba-tiba Marka menyampaikan kepada saya keinginannya untuk masuk Islam. Lalu sya katakan padanya : Silahakan Anda mandi terlebih dulu. Seteah dia mandi saya bimbing Mark mengucapkan dua kalimat syahadat kemudain dia shalata sunnah dua rakaat. Setelah itu, Mark mengungkapakan keinginannya untuk mengunjungi Masjid Haram di Makkah dan shalat di sana sebelum dia meninggalkan Saudi Arabia.

Untuk dapat mewujudkan keinginan beliau, kami pergi ke kantor Dakwah dan Irsyad di kawasan Al-Hamro’ Jeddah untuk mengambil bukti formal keislamannya agar dapat memasuki kota Mekkah dan Masjid Haram. Lalu Mark diberi sertifikat sementara masuk Islam. Karena beberapa anggota grup yang mengikuti kunjungan Mark ke Saudi Arabia sudah harus kembali ke Amerika sore Sabtunya, Al-Hamdullah, Ustadz Muhammad Turkistani bersedia mengantarkan Mark Ke tanah haram Mekkah pagi itu juga.

Terkait kunjungan Mark ke Masjid Haram, Ustazd Muhammad Turkistani menceritakan : setelah Mark medapatkan sertifikat Islam sementara kamipun langsung berangkat menuju Masjid Haram yang mulia. Ketiak dia menyaksikan Masjid Haram, tampak sekali wajahnya sangat cerah dan memancarkan kegembiraan yang luar biasa. Ketika kami masuk ke dalam Masjid Haram dan menyaksikan langsung Ka’bah, kegembiraannya semakin bertambah. Demi Allah saya tidak bisa mengungkapkannya dengan lisan akan pemandangan tersebut. Setelah beliu tawaf mengelilingi Ka’bah yang mulia, kami shalat sunnah dan kemudian keluar dari Masjid Haram. Saya lihat Mark sngat berat untuk berpisah dengan Masjid Haram.

Setelah Mark Mengumumkan keislamannya, dia sempat mengungkapkan kebahagiaanya pada Koran Al-Riyadh sambil berkata : Saya tidak sanggup mengungkapkan perasaan saya saat ini. Akan tetapi, sekarang saya baru dilahirkan kembali dan kehidupan saya baru dimulai…Lalu dia menambahkan : Saya sangat bahagia. Kebahagiaan yang saya rasakan tidak sanggup saya ungkapkan pada Anda saat saya berkunjung ke Masjid Haram dan Ka’bah yang mulia.

Terkait pertanyaan langkah ke depan setelah ia masuk Islam, Mark menjelaskan : saya akan belajar lebih banyak tentag Islam, akan mendalami agama Allah ini (Islam) dan akan kembali lagi ke Saudi Arabia untuk menunaikan ibadah Haji.

Terkait faktor pendoring masuk Islam, Mark menjelaskan : Sebelumnya saya sudah memiliki informasi tentang Islam, tapi sangat sedikit. Ketika saya berkunjung ke Saudi dan menyaksikan langsung kaum Muslimin di Saudi dan saya saksikan mereka menunaikan shalat, saya merasakan sebuah dorongan yang kuat untuk mengenal lebih banyak lagi tentang Islam. Ketika saya membca informasi yang benar tentang Islam, sayapun yakin bahwa Islam adalah agama yang haq (benar).

Pagi Ahad 18 Okteber 2009, Mark meninggalkan Bandara King Abdul Aziz Jeddah menuju Amerika. Sebelum meninggalkan Jeddah, saat mengisi fomulir imigrasi, Mark mencantumkan agamanya adalah ISLAM.

Selamat jalan Mark… Semoga Allah memberkahi Anda dan menjadikan Anda seorang Muslim yang taat dan Da’i yang akan mengajak masyarakat Amerika untuk menikmati kebahagiaan Islam sebagaimana yang Anda rasakan, agar mereka, khusunya pemerintah Amerika tidak takut kepada Islam. Karena hanya Islamlah yang mampu menyelamatakan umat manusia di dunia dan di akhirat kelak...Amin… (fj)
