Yahudi peluk Islam meninggal sebagai cedikiawan Islam

Begum Maryam Jameela dilahirkan di New York, Amerika beliau datang ke Lahore pada tahun 1961. Beliau amat kagum dengan tulisan Syed Abul Alaa Maudoodi. Tulisan itulah juga akhirnya membuatkan dia memeluk Islam. Sudah tentu ia merupakan satu hidayah dari Allah Taala.

Setelah menjadi muslimah, dia korbankan seluruh hidupnya dalam urusan dakwah dan menulis sebanyak 34 buah buku yang menyentuh kepada kebenaran agama Islam.

Beliau telah meninggal dunia baru-baru ini dan dikebumikan di Lahore. Begitulah manusia yang jika Allah mahukan kebaikan padanya, akan diberikan kefahaman tentang agama. Lalu digunakan kefahaman itu untuk memberikan kefaham pula pada orang lain, maka jadilah dia manusia yang amat berguna. Di mana kita...?



LAHORE: Religious scholar and writer, Begum Maryam Jameela, who was born a Jew but embraced Islam after being impressed by the writings of Maulana Syed Abul Ala Maudoodi, died of cardiac failure here on Wednesday.

Ameer JI Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, Prof Ghafoor Ahmed, Prof Khurshid Ahmed, Sirajul Haq, Liaquat Baloch and other central party leaders expressed deep grief over her sad demise.
