The Pope announces his retirement which shock my Catholic friends here in Singapore. Inevitably though, it was embarrassing to see a few Muslims friends making jokes about it.
Respect should be given…even though the Pope has made some bad remarks on Muslims. Let us remember the good akhlak (noble character) and from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wassalam) was, when he communicated with foreign rulers who have yet to embrace Islam.
Let us make a prayer.. may Allah bless the Pope with good health, and the opportunity to learn more from the Books and hopefully Allah bless him with hidayah. Ameen.
Which reminds me, I should get the book that I was eyeing…the letters compilation that Prophet sallallahu alaihi wassalam wrote to the foreign rulers. Just think the bookstores at Golden Landmark are a tad expensive, like everything else in Singapore.
