Did Medical Frontliners Convert Dying Patient To Islam?
A video showing three medical frontliners converting a patient to Islam has gone viral with this message :
Truth : Medical Frontliners Helped Patient Convert To Islam
It is true that medical frontliners helped to convert a COVID-19 patient to Islam, while she was being treated in a hospital.
However, it was not a Zakir Naik initiative, and here are the facts…
Fact #1 : This Happened At The Duchess of Kent Hospital In Sabah
The video was recorded on 9 September 2021 at the Duchess of Kent Hospital (HDOK) in Sandakan, Sabah.
The patient – a 66 year-old Dusun lady from Beluran called Laimi – was admitted on 4 September 2021 after she contracted COVID-19.
Fact #2 : She Converted To Islam Voluntarily
Laimi had earlier expressed her desire to convert to Islam, because four of her five children as well as several of her siblings had already converted to Islam.
In a video call to her family from the hospital bed, Laimi told them that she wanted to convert to Islam.
Her son, Firdaus Fringco Abdullah, contacted a hospital official to request that his mother be guided in reciting that Shahada to convert to Islam.
Fact #3 : Three Nurses Helped Her Convert To Islam
At around 4 PM on 9 September 2021, three nurses helped Laimi recite the Shahada.
With that, she officially converted to Islam, with a new name – Nur Laila Tinggi.
Fact #4 : She Was Not Dying
Laimi @ Nur Laila Tinggi had kidney disease and required oxygen supplementation, but she was not dying.
She was not treated in the ICU, or mechanically-ventilated – that would have made it impossible for her to recite the Shahada.
As of 20 September 2021, she was recovering well and remained under observation.
Fact #5 : Her Conversion Has Implication On Inheritance
It is true that her conversion to Islam has serious implications when it comes to matters of inheritance.
As several fatwas have made clear – “A Muslim cannot be the heir of a disbeliever, nor can a disbeliever be the heir of a Muslim.”
So once Laimi converted to Islam and became Nur Laila Tinggi, her non-Muslim children and grandchildren automatically lose their inheritance, with one exception – she can apportion up to ⅓ of her fortune in her will (wasiat) to non-Muslim beneficiaries.
Without a specific wasiat, non-Muslims may not receive any inheritance from a Muslim.
