King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz • الملك عبدالله بن عبدالعزيز

King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz • الملك عبدالله بن عبدالعزيز

I was sitting on the couch with Y when suddenly he said, “There are all of these things on Twitter saying that King Abdullah died, but I don’t know…”

“Do you think it’s true?” I asked.
“I’m not sure…” he replied.

We went on doing whatever it was that we were doing. I think we had the MBC movie channel on the TV and both of us were sort of mindlessly scrolling through social media dashboards on our phones. All of a sudden the channel changed to the live feed from Makkah. Not just one of the channels, but all of them.

I could tell by the look on Y’s face that this had more significant meaning than a strange technical glitch. A few moments later the channel quickly changed to a news broadcast. The man on the screen announced the death of the King.

Y looked at me with such sorrow in his eyes and said, “King Abdullah is one reason that I met you”.

  1. This gripped my heart! I am so grateful for King Abdullah’s life. Thank you for sharing this touching post. I’m so glad that Y met you and that in you meeting him, I was able to meet you. God bless the memory and legacy of King Abdullah.
