My Trip to Saudi Arabia

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

My trip to Saudi Arabia December 28th through January 8th, 2009.

Coming from America makes you appreciate a country like Saudi Arabia!
When I landed in Riyadh, it was amazing to see Muslim men dressed in
thowbes and Muslim women fully covered.  As I walked out onto the
streets of Riyadh it was unbelievable to me .. to look at the beauty
of this modern city in an old desert. To see Masajid on every corner
was alhamdulillah!  And to hear the Adhan (the call to prayer) echoing
throughout the streets made it feel like it was my first time ever
hearing it.  Alhamdulilllah it was amazing!  After that I stayed in
Riyadh for a few days and met up with a few brothers from around my
way.

Then I went to Jeddah, where I was scheduled to speak with the youth
about my life and conversion to Islaam. I was a bit taken back to see
Saudi kids in hip-hop attire, resembling the “gangsta” culture in
America. I was further saddened to learn of the obsession the Muslim
youth have towards the West, not understanding how could this be when
they come from a country that I myself only dream of living in; a
country surrounded by Masajid, the knowledge of the Ulimah, and the
two holiest cities (i.e. Mecca and Madinah) including the Ka’ba and
Masjid An Nabawi. It was dumbfounding to say the least because true
success and honour in this life and the next life is only through
Islam; not in imitation of the West.

The next morning I headed back to Riyadh for a few days; then to
Madinah. In Madinah I was given a VIP tour inside the Prophet’s
Masjid. I was taken downstairs where I viewed a video of how King
Fahad (rahimuallah) worked hard to expand the Prophet’s Masjid and
what it takes to keep the masjid running and functioning. I never knew
how much technology is involved in the everyday operation of the
masjid. It was phenominal. They showed me the original letters that
the Prophet (peace and prayer of Allah be upon him) sent to different
rulers such as Hercules, the Amir of Bahrain, the ruler of Persia, and
Najashi the Ethiopian king. The brothers translated the letters to me
and it was amazing how much wisdom Allah blessed Prophet Muhammad
(sallahu alaihe was salaam) with in calling them to the religion of
Islaam. Later on that day, I was invited to dinner at the house of
Sheik Abdur Razaq ibn Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad. He gave me naseeha
(advice) on the importance of learning the religion of Islam; starting
first with Tawheed (the Oneness of Allah). He also gave me the book,
40 Hadith by Imam An Nawawi, in Arabic script, and told me to have
someone go over the book with me and in a few months he would check to
see my progress. MashaAllah! Alhamdulillah the Sheik (may Allah
preserve him) showed me warmth and extreme hospitality. May Allah
reward him, ameen.

The next morning, I returned to Riyadh where I met with a few people
before heading back to America. After returning home I realized how
blessed Saudi Arabia is and I pray that one day I can return with my
family bi’ithnillah (with the permission of Allah).

Your brother in Islam,

Mutah Beale (Napoleon)

    hey bro mutah
    hope u had a wonderful trip 2 saudi
    i just wanna thanks u as ive listened to each and every one of your inspiring lecture and they have motivated me to stop listening 2 music.(due to the permission of Allah) it was even harder not 2 listen to pac and his outlawz as yall were one of the truest cats out there in the game and we practically grew up listening to ya dope joints so it was hard. i just wanted to know if there was any words of wisdom that tupac shared with yall cause that could help the youth to get there minds straight out there.

    Assalamu Alaykum,
    As you can see we as Muslims are not in good condition today so please lets make dua for the Muslims that Allah will make them come together as whole. It is really sad

    -sister in Islam

  3. abu ubaida says:

    salumu aleikum to everybody

  4. A'dam says:

    Its a damn shame that tupac’s murder not is solved..
    I still have love for his music. I got through a lot of tough times listening to him.
    Whats your own opinion suge knight set it up?
    What about Yafeu?? youre.. ‘Roddy’?? or another suggests that he was killed because Yafeu could possibly identify the person that ended the life of Tupac?? please can you answer what my question? please..

  5. sarah says:

    aselamualeikum brother
    I can imagine how beatutifull it must have been to be in a muslim surrounding, especially for someone, who grew up in the U.S or Europe. Inshaallah we will all experience that, too.(one day:))

    To your comment
    quote:They showed me the original letters that the
    prophet(peace and prayer of Allah be upon him)
    wrote to different rulers such as Herculie, the
    Amir of Bahrain,the ruler of Persia and Najashi
    the Ethiopian king.

    I know you might know this but I just wanted to say/ make clear that the Prophet Muhammed(p.b.u.h.) could neither write nor read, (since this was commanded by ALLAH swt, because this was his distinctive marc in the earlier books). He let the Sahabas write for him.

    I don’t want to critizise your text, but I think it could be understood wrongly of s.o, who doesn’t know that about our prophet.

    So Jezakullahulkheiran

  6. Yusuf says:

    Alhumdulillah, I’m happy for you that you had a good trip and that it was beneficial for all insha’Allah.

  7. Ali Clark says:

    As Salaamu Alaykum Brother,

    Sorry I missed you when you came, but I just wanted to give you support. Keep up the good work. It’s much needed and highly appreciated. Hope to see you next time you come to Riyadh.

  8. napoleon says:

    brother mutah

    i was just wandering if shorty wanna be a thug is about u. i know its a random question but im just curious
    and id like to know.

  12. Abdullah Musheer says:

    Salamualikum bro Mutah………

    N hey ya wen ur comin again to Saudi again coz mah frnz missed ur prog……..
    MAY ALLLAH REWARD YOU N OTHERS DOING THIS TREMENDEOUS JOB..

  13. Nabila says:

    Assalamu alaikum. Alhamdulillah, you arrived home safely. I wish they would let women like us see those letters…

  14. napoleon says:

    walikum salam, maybe if the women contact the people in charge of the affairs at masjid nabawiyah they will let women see the letters etc, also to mariyah pac gave us words of advice because to us the outlawz he was like a big brother figure and he wanted to see us mature and become men, so alot advice pac use to give us was positve

  15. Mark says:

    Hey Napoleon,

    I understand why you quit rap. But music stays a beautiful thing. Why not be the first to only rap about
    positivity? Maybe you can inspire the ‘gangsters’ to believe that its much more cool to rap about positive stuff. Alone or with the other remaining Outlawz. Then you can still do speeches and stuff. Furthermore do I completely respect and understand your decision.

    One love.

    Mark

  16. kimberly says:

    hi there, i just came across your website and found it quite interesting, i don’t really know that much about you or what this website is for, i just came across it. I’m not actually Muslim so I’m not actually sure if i should be posting a comment here but i just feel drawn to the religion but struggling to fully accept it or even gain that much knowledge about it due to the kind of people I’m around and the sort of things i do. I don’t know why I’m drawn to Islam, I’m not even a religious person , so how I’m feeling strikes me as really strange. I don’t really know what to do or where to start or if i should even bother to pursue anything…i was just wondering if you could help me fill in the blanks and give me some advise, I’d really appreciate it.

  17. napoleon says:

  18. admin says:

    Hope all is well with you,

    My name is Mutah (napoleon) I received your email from my admin , I want to tell you that its good to hear that you are interested in islam. This is the religion of all the prophets from Allah the creator of the heavens and the earth. I come to UK often and will be there Feb 8th inshaallah and maybe you can come to one of my talks, there will be muslim women there that you can meet and they can help you with questions and what ever you want to know about islam and we can give you literature about islam etc… also feel free to contact us at the website if you have further questions about Islam.

    thank you
    Mutah beale

  19. sister Farxiya says:

    Hi kimberly,

    im glad that you are interested in Islam

    i would advice you to have a open mind and open heart
    and hope you find things easy
    Islam is not a new religion but Islam is the religion of all the Prophets like brother Mutah said. ALLAH is the ONLY Creator of this world and someday we will die and face a judegment. kimberly if you know any good Muslims or if there is any Mosque near that can provide you with some information that would be great. May ALLAH make things easy for you

  20. Kimberly says:

    hi there again, thanks for the reply really appreciate it and yeah i would be interested in coming to one of your talks…if you wouldn’t mind could you give me the details of the event? Thank You

  21. As-salaamu-alaykum-wa-Rahmaatullaahi-wa-Barakaatuhu!

    My Dear Brother Mutah,

    It is SOOOO WONDERFUL, to be able to communicate with You THROUGH THE PERMISSION AND MERCY OF ALLAAH THE MOST HIGH. I attended the University of Madinah in 1989 and I have made several trips back since then. My most recent tours have been in 2004, where My students and I performed fifteen(15)martial arts demonstrations for the Scholars, Royal Family, Saudi National Guards, Ta’ibah University and some health and sports clubs. This can be viewed on YouTube. In 2008, My students once again visited Saudi Arabia and performed five(2)demonstrations and I taught two(2)seminars at two clubs. One of the demonstrations was performed at the house of Shaykh Muhammad Al-Aqeel(INSHA-ALLAAH, this will be on YouTube soon). You can check the following with the following Scholars about Me: Shaykh Taraheeb Ad-Dosri, Shaykh Abdullaah Al-Bukhari and Shaykh Saalih As-Suhaymee. It was through My good brother Tahir Wayatt that these events were arranged. I would like for us to meet and talk with one another. I would like for us to do something together, INSHA-ALLAAH, but only if You are interested. I was at one time going to give up teaching the martial arts and then Shaykh Faruuq at the University of Madinah convinced Me through a saying of our beloved Prophet Muhammad(prayers and peace be upon him)which was also verified by one of Shaykh Rabi’ah’s student in Mecca during Ramadhan in the Shaykh’s house and again while I was staying as a guest in The house of Shaykh Taraheeb’s house in Madinah. Please contact Me if You find what I say to be of some use and benefit. JAZAAKULLAAH KHAYRAN…

  22. napoleon says:

    Salam alaikum brother Sayfullaah Al-Amriykiy, jazakallah khair for coming to the site and leaving us a comment.
