5-year-old Tanzanian boy converted thousands of people to Islam.

5-year-old Tanzanian boy
converted thousands of people to Islam.

Miraculous Tanzanian Boy Sharif-uddin (or Sharif-iddin)Khalifa, is a miraculous boy, born in in Arusha, in the Northern part of Tanzania (a country in East Africa), in December 1993.
Muslims are only a minority in
Tanzania and Arabic language is not a
native in Tanzania. His parents were
Catholic Christians.
Their native language is Swahili and they did not know Arabic.
When he was a little child, his
parents (who were Christians noticed that
he was able to recite the whole
Quran by heart, even though no body had ever taught him to do so.
At the age of two months, he
refused to suckle his mother's milk.
At the age of four months, he
started reciting verses from the Holy
Quran.
By the time he was one-year old, he was able to recite the whole Quran
and went on to be able to preach in Arabic,
Swahili and French without any formal
education.
It is reported that his first words were:
"You people repent and you will be accepted by God" and he spoke these words in Arabic.
His concerned parents initially
thought he was possessed by demons and
called Christian priests to pray for the
baby.
Eventually, Muslim neighbors
were able to interpret Sharif's alien speech.
After his parents recognized that
the significance of what their boy is
saying and that he is miracle from God, his parents converted to Islam.
Furthermore, despite the fact that he is from Tanzania, he speaks Arabic
fluently in addition to 4 other languages
(English, French, Italian, and Swahili).
He is able to pick up languages
very fast,
he once said: "I went to Congo
and heard people speaking Lingala
(the local language).
I immediately was able to start
speaking it."
Today, he delivers sermons and lectures in Africa and Europe that draw thousands of people to listen to him.
Because of this boy, thousands of people have converted to Islam.

The following is an article about
him that was published in a Scottish newspaper on Aug. 8,1999:
