مافي اي سبب يخليه يتنصر .. فلوس ومرتاح ومشهور مش محتاج شهره
الولد فيه شي
Translation: “Hey guys, I think his situation is abnormal he might be under pressure or Mentally ill; there’s no reason for him to convert as he is famous and rich; there’s something with the boy.”
لا هيزود المسيحيه ولا هينقص الإسلام كل إنسان حر بينه وبين ربه لادخل لاحد وكل الاديان السماويه من عند الله الاهم المعامله الحسنه بين البشر— molysaad (@molasaad1) January 24, 2021
Translation: “He’s not adding anything to Christianity nor reducing anything from Islam, everyperson has his own relation with God, the most important thing is how you treat and deal with people.”
‘We are the sons of Issa and Mary, finally I know God and I understood life,’ said the broadcaster, who is the grandson of the famous Kuwaiti Broadcaster , writer and calligrapher Hamad Al-Mu'min.
Some Twitter users accused Mohammad Al-Mu'min of attempting to secure an asylum saying that converting to Christianity might be the easiest way to get one.
A hashtag which was released ‘#محمد_المومن’ has gone viral and topped the list after local media broadcast Mohammad’s video causing stir and igniting typical debate across the country and the Muslim region.
