With difficulty and persistence, a Nigerian blogger who recently converted to Islam tried to read Surat Al-Asr in a video clip from in front of the Grand Mosque in Makkah Al-Mukarramah.
Joseph, who chose the name Ibrahim after converting to Islam, insisted on reading the surah many times, despite his stuttering. And the young man appeared in another clip while he was trying to read the short surah and wrote on it “I try juicing again”.
Ibrahim devoted his account on the Instagram site to clips that he filmed from Saudi Arabia, especially from the Grand Mosque and the Noble Prophet’s Mosque. This is according to Al Jazeera Mubasher.
In these clips, Abraham appears performing prayers or circumambulating the Holy Kaaba. The young blogger has 471,000 followers on this account, and he has one million followers on TikTok.
