Do You Have a Bigger Drone For Me To Go To Hajj?

Poor Abdullah’s sincere prayer was answered

By Muaz Muddassir Qasmi

The story of this – Al-Hassan Abdullah – a poor man from a village in Ghana is going viral in the world, and it is for good reason! A reporter for a Turkish media house was taking some video footage with a drone, and it mistakenly landed in front of this old man’s house who is in the picture. When the Turkish news crew rushed to the drone to get it back, they saw this old man was carrying it in his hands.

As the man handed the drone over to the film crew, he expressed a thought and deep desire that must have been languishing inside him for many decades. “Do you have one large enough (of this) to take me to Hajj?” he wistfully asked the reporter? Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam and once in a life time ritual for the rich and capable Muslims only, to visit Makkah in the present-day Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but all pious Muslims wishe and pray for this to happen in their lifetime too.

The reporter smiled and amused by Mr. Abdullah’s innocence and tweeted out that image of Mr. Abdullah with the drone in his hands and his question on it. For the reporter it was just a tweet with a poor man’s childish wish expressing his innocence. But lo and behold, this man’s Dua (prayer) was answered and his dream came true that very year in 2017. As his story went viral on social media, the then Foreign Minister of Turkey Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu intervened and helped arrange a Hajj journey for Abdullah, who was impoverished!

Just try to visualize this poor man – how often and how sincerely he would have requested Allah (swt) to make his Hajj journey possible. He grasped the sheer impossibility that most would have assumed as a day dream – no money, no passport, no means to get out of his village, yet, out of nowhere, a small aerial messenger came and landed in front of his house, as a harbinger of glad tidings and he performed Hajj like a VIP. Duas are always powerful and Allah may make anything possible.

According to Turkish media, he arrived in Istanbul from Accra, Ghana, and was welcomed by a Turkish charity whose work focuses on Ghana. Abdullah told Anadolu Agency (AA) that he was pleased to be in Istanbul and it was Allah Who blessed him with this favor from Turkey. “I am grateful to Allah and I pray for everyone who helped this dream of mine come true. Turkish state’s assistance is valuable for me… ,” he said.

Abdullah’s story made the headlines in 2017 after a TRT World employee tweeted this image with drone in Abdullah’s hands and an amazing dreaming wish – Do you have a bigger drone to take me to Hajj? TRT World, Turkish Government and Turk Charity received appreciations and applauses from Muslims across the world for their humane attitude towards this poor Al-Hassan Abdullah of Ghana. The story is till date making around over social media in different languages.
