Saddam Hussein saying: "We are calling on all Arabs, all religious fighters, to join the jihad. We call on you to attack the powers of evil, of treason and corruption, and their interests everywhere. It is your duty." The appeal was in vain. Nobody wanted to follow the self-proclaimed holy warrior Saddam. Nobody even joined in when he tried to emphasize the religiosity of the fight by launching Scud missiles toward Israel.
إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون Indonesia's Saudi Arabia-born Al Sheikh Ali Jaber passes away; 14th January 2021
Bogor, W Java (ANTARA) - Indonesia's charismatic Muslim preacher Sheikh Ali Jaber passed away at Jakarta's Yarsi Hospital on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. local time.
Syekh Ali Jaber Foundation Chairman Habib Abdurrahman Alhabsyi announced the demise of this popular Muslim preacher and ulema on the foundation's official Instagram account that ANTARA quoted here on Thursday.
Alhabsyi revealed that Sheikh Ali Jaber had tested negative for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) prior to his death. He was hospitalized since December 29, 2020.
Born in Medina, Saudi Arabia, on Feb 3, 1976, Sheikh Ali Jaber, whose full name is Ali Saleh Mohammed Ali Jaber, was widely known as a Muslim preacher and ulema.
Ali Jaber holds an Indonesian citizenship. He is popular among Indonesian Muslims as a juror of Quran memorization contests on the country's TV stations.
In September last year, this popular Muslim cleric attracted the attention of the Indonesian public and media as well as foreign media outlets after a young man assaulted him at Falahudin Mosque in Bandar Lampung City.
Sheikh Ali Jaber survived the knife attack that occurred while he was attending an Islamic mass gathering at the mosque in the Suka Jawa neighborhood of Tanjung Karang Barat Sub-district, Bandar Lampung City, Lampung, on September 13, 2020.
However, this popular ulema suffered a minor injury to his right arm in the sudden attack launched by Alfin Andrian, 24, while he was conversing onstage with two of the event's participants.
According to a video of the incident circulated on a YouTube channel, Andrian, who reportedly resides in proximity to the mosque, was caught by several participants of the event shortly after attacking Ali Jaber.
Tanjung Karang Barat Police Chief Adjunct Commissioner David Sianipar stated that Sheikh Ali Jaber was admitted to the Gedong Air Public Health Center for administering medical treatment for the wound he incurred during the stabbing incident while the attacker was detained.
إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون Sympathies and Condolence
for the passing of Al Sheikh Ali Jaber to his wife, children and family.
~May Allah swt grant them sabr during this grievous period.
~May Allah swt grant him BEST grace and BEST generosity.
~May Allah place him with the Rasuls and Prophet Muhammad s.a.w , his family and his companions and among the pious muslims~ Amin! Al-Fatiha
