The story of Ibrahim Killington reminds of the story of the great companion Umar Ibn Alkhattab: He got so angry one day that he decided to go kill the prophet Muhammad but on his way there Allah opened his heart and he accepted Islam. Ibrahim Killington is a British man from Wymondham, Norfolk. After the events of 9/11 He got so angry that he convinced himslef he needs to kill as many Muslims as he can. But Allah wanted otherwise for him and his heart got softened after reading the Quran. Here is his story in his own words:
Before I came to Islam, my life was really focused on drink, drugs, having fun. The whole purpose of life was just to have fun, have a laugh; the way to make your life bearable until you die, and hanging around with people of similar interests which were not always the best company to keep.
My first experience of seeing Muslims was the 9/11 attacks. I remember I was quite young at that time, I wasn't completely aware of what was going on. In fact, I ran to my friends after seeing the news report, and I told them that the "tourists" have declared war on America, because I had never heard of terrorists before.
As the war was unfolding, I was seeing more and more about the war in Afghanistan, I started understanding that these people were Muslims. The Muslims are doing these horrible atrocities around the world. So, from the media bombardment, I started getting a strong hatred for Muslims. So much in fact. I tried to join the army three times with the goal of wanting to go over there, and kill as many of these people as I could, to do my bit for my country and to make it a bit safer for my family. I thought they were the big evil of the world.
