Olympic Athlete accepts Islam becomes Muslim beyond the nationalism _ Croatian Å½eljko Primio Islam.mp3
Alright guys coming up now. Amazing, I need everybody to pay attention to this amazing, incredible story.
Now, this is an example of Islam transcending nationalism, and especially those who are Croatian or Serbian, I really need you guys to pay attention because there's somewhat of a barrier I've seen in this part of the world. But Islam transcends it and shall go. My next guest
is a testimony to that. He's Croatian. He is a champion, seven degree Olympic team
in Bosnia, and he ends up meeting a Muslim, trying to get the Muslim to go to the nightclubs hanging out, but he's seeing some special about this man, his honesty, his integrity, his devotion to prayer to God. And that really has him thinking because he's connecting. He wants to connect, you know, the physical with the spiritual. He's got the physical in Taekwondo, but he's missing the spiritual. So now, God guides him, hooks him up with this Muslim, and you're going to be amazed. I want to give it away. So you don't have to sit through this interview to find out what happens next. Amazing. It's all I can say. Enjoy.
smilla la salaam aleikum, how you guys doing? We're still in Bosnia, wonderful people. We're meeting with some wonderful stories. And this one is no exception. You can be a little bit patient here because we got a
translator. And the story was so I've been trying to find people who speak English. But this story is so unique and really inspirational, that we're going to bring it to you in the original Bosnian language and we got an interpreter for you. And I met former former Jericho today's aide and transcending nationalism to come into Islam. Someone make radical with a little bit of controversy
over that 100 law documents this
program can you have to start off in the beginning
of his quest to work how he came to the point where he really started to you know, seek purpose. He was a martial artist is that correct? And he wanted to he wanted to connect you know, the martial art training the body but also the soul which so many people they neglect that because it's like there's a project
for me, no show producer.

always see your son to be
so brothers a thing from beginning to being a professional athlete is a little bit humble about his athletics because he is world class Taekwondo, black belt seven, seven pounds. So being a world class athlete he was a he was he was also something with the Olympics. Yes, he was Olympian and the National number of national team Taekwondo. And in that time, he was in Germany so it is in German national team and also in Croatian, what about consist of unit because he was during that time was the whole seven countries of today. He was International.
theme of the extra go to World Class Taekwondo
martial artists, so he said his body was in very good shape. And as an athlete, maybe he was even more inclined to think about spirituality and life because he will read from his arts, which is Taekwondo, which says, foot, fist and dough, which, by the way, so the dough, the dough would mean what showed me like way, way, way, the way. So he was trying to figure it out. What does it mean the way and he was reading the eastern philosophies about Taekwondo, and he was here, he figured it out that they're trying to connect the material and spiritual. So he said, Okay, I figured out I have material My body is in pretty good shape, you practice to eat well. So your material body is in good
shape, but then what about spirit? What about So? So that was the first thing that inclines him towards God intended law but the beginning he said he didn't know nothing. In the beginning I told him anything about God, he just said more and more questions when he was reading Eastern philosophy. He said that there must be something that feeds your soul like the like the food in your body. So that was the beginning of his wish and his basically to find this thing that will feed his soul. So that's the beginning that's interesting because people have the way the dough or people of the sinner if you know that the translation can be people of the way yes so when you translate dough
that can that's the same basically just in eastern religion says do denarius wow it's more
or less mean so that's

compulsory military service. So in that period, he met one Muslim actually, and became very good friends with him because this Muslim was with a similar background, also world class, karate martial artist. So he said while he was spending a lot of time with him, and he got very close friends with him, he saw that he had some strange, he says things for him that he observed. So actually, Allah will be that way that this Muslim came to visit him in Germany after his invitation three years after he came to spend some time in Germany with him to hang out and he ended up living with brother's date for a few years. And this actually, Allah will that way that it gave him more time
today to really see what is this strange things that he observed his Muslim friends tell us about some of the things that he observed from the Muslim friend of his stuff.

on a clip, to practice a Muslim woman was very good.
He said that first. While hanging out with this Muslim friend at the time, he observed some strange things that we already said what was strange about it that he said every once in a while we're hanging out sitting, enjoying free time, he would just stand up, and he would disappear for maybe 1015 minutes. So that would continue to happen all the time. So and he was always looking for a quiet room. Just any place, which would be quiet and clean, he would look for it. So obviously go pray. Yeah, obviously, if there was a question, what is the reason why you have to go to the toilet? You have some problems to your urinary function. But no, he said, No, this is as Muslims, we have
this prayer. So he said, It's first time he actually heard about prayer. He didn't even know how it looks like. So he asked him, What is it? How does it work? So he explained to him that as Muslims, we have five daily prayers which they have to we have to observe. So he has to okay. If you have if you have to pray all the time. Do you do anything else in your life? Or you just pray do can you get a job or so he was really curious about the prayer. So there was the first thing and the second thing which they
said now started explaining to us is that the second part of what was curious about this Muslim friend was his behavior. He suggests about his conduct his modesty and his that really like
made him shine basically like he's saying that he was really intrigued by his nice character and nice personality. Now with this, Samir is his name right. His Muslim friend Samir, you would try to get him to go you use you had like a big nightclub, right. You're on the party scene, and you're trying to invite him what would happen then?

brother So give us a little insight about his background. He said that he was working in hospitality for years and he was because of his martial arts background and clerics. He was working as a manager of a few different nightclubs and restaurants. So Indian here decided to open his own nightclub and his Muslim friend he actually helped him as a construction worker because he didn't have a job in Germany.
So he would help him to set the place up to two to three months. But he said, as soon as he opened the nightclub, he couldn't he couldn't get this Muslim friend ever to come to his nightclub. So this was also another strange thing for him. But this Muslim friend just explained to him that this is ways that he doesn't enter places like this. So he said for two years that he was running this nightclub, his Muslim friend never showed up at this place. And he said at the time, he was seeing him a lot because he was helping this Muslim friend he was struggling with his jobs and couldn't find a job that his his brother said was helping him in in this time, they were spending a lot of
time together. And they were talking about their athletics and their sports, how they get all the motivation or the power to to work and to work hard to be there to excel at sports. So when he asked him what is his way What is his though, he told him that his his way is Islam and he that he gets all his motivation, spiritual power from Islam and from Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Salam was was beginning talking about Islam. What finally had him realize that Islam was the truth and gave him the courage to accept it.

But the beginning rather than saying that he was reading about it took maybe two to three years to come to this point where he said that he finally entered Islam humbler so he said he started by reading Eastern philosophy or kind of religious books. He also mentioned earlier we spoke to him that he was reading Bible 10 he was reading Quran translation of Quran and some books of narrations about Prophet Muhammad Salah. So this was the way he was reading. And then in same time, he would have discussions all the time with his Muslim friend who would explain to him things that he didn't understand from reading the books. So he said, in general, he had questions like any young person
would have, like, if, if God exists.
What then God if he created everything created as the universe of all material things, then he must want us to do something. So there was also one question he had to look into the directions from God what to do in this life. And also, earlier, I didn't translate he mentioned also that he figured out that for our money and for material things, to nourish it, we need water, we need food. But then what do we need to nourish our soul? Who is the owner of the soul? Who how did how did he came to being so these are the questions that he was reading about that he was talking to his Muslim friend and he said basically, that
Islam made sense or the explanation that he got from this Muslim friend. They made sense and it was logical.
How was what was the response from the Croatian community the Bosnian community upon hearing that he accepted Islam, Gaza Caicos.

he was telling us about extra conversion. And it all happened in the one of the
messages in Germany, which was by Bosnian people organized by Bosnian people. So he was obviously well accepted by Muslim community there and he would go there many times before he accepted Islam with his friend because he said he noticed that his friend would be going to someplace that he didn't know at night time, so he would ask where you're going. And his Muslim friend told him that there's one learn Muslim Imam, scholar that would explain Quran to them, and that would give us answer the questions about religion. So he asked him, can he go with him? So obviously, he was welcome. And then when he entered his prayer hall, he would see the people praying first time in his
life, and he said this was very, very interesting and very curious for him. So so he asked them, can I do it to do Can I pray with you? So they said, you cannot pray pray? Is there some something that you must do first before you can pray with us? There are some conditions. So he said, Okay, what are the conditions? And then he told me, you have to bet yourself you have to say kalama Shahada. So you have to testify this and there's only one God and none of none but Allah and then you have to that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is His Messenger and his way through, he was listening to these
terms and then he said, I was waiting for him to tell me something more what I have to do and then he said that said, Okay, I'm ready this nothing because he was expecting some that they will ask you to do some, some some complicated things so he can be part of community so that was basically how he got to the point where he took Shahada and foot prayed for first time and experienced this amazing thing. So he's a Muslim now officially, yes. And what happens next step

brothers, they said after a set the kalama I became Muslim. That's when the temptations and problems started for him. So he said from the get go, it was tough for him.
He was married already for about six years in that time. And he had one small baby daughter. So he said was very very tough for him and it came the word came to his wife and to his parents that you know change the religion that is not going to pray with Muslims. So it said it was very very tough time for him and he said he was he kept reminding kept reminding himself about the ayah from Quran which he paraphrase basically that the Quran, Allah Spano, tala sisters, do you think that you will say that you believe and that you will be left alone, that you're not going to be tested. So that's he said, that's the idea that I have from Quran that gives him power to fight through this tough
period. And he said it ended up he ended up divorcing his wife, because of these differences. Chico accepting being a Muslim and basically told him you have to come back to being Christian and being the same guy from before and we have to divorce So basically, he divorced his marriage. And other interesting thing. He also
after a short period of time, he was chosen to be like a group leader of young Muslims in that part of Germany, one huge area in Germany. So he said in that time when they chose him as a base as the president of this Muslim, youth Muslim community, he said that
some Muslims which were Bosnians by nationality they were complaining, well how can you take Croatian guy and put Him as our leader? So he This is one clue which gave him also
understanding that there are also some Muslims who took Islam as their property is their national pride not not as something that is for all the people so this is a problem that he faced on the Muslim side of so those were kind of conditions here he was also blessed to do Hajj Is that correct?

you and during the wartime because
when he became Muslim, he came to fight in a war in, in Bosnia here. And during the war time, he was chosen as a representative of
war police to go for like a gift to hatch. But he said and he was very burning from there to go there. But the worst situation and all the pathways were closed in that time. So in 9394 95, he was unable to exit the bus and he had to go to hatch and he said everything was set. He had all the reservations made up everything, he got everything as a gift. But then he said, I didn't want him to go. So he remained here. And then after the war in 9697 98, he was traveling, he was wishing to go but there was no No, no, no situation that would bring him there. So basically, in 99, he said that he he had special situation with his wife, because his wife now as a Muslim, he got married with a
Muslim sister basically. And then he had one, one child with her and the second child they lost during the pregnancy, they had some complications. So there was the third child coming and the pregnancy was very, very sensitive. So he said, he would have to take special care about his life, take her to the doctors, and in this period, in that all this pregnancy problems, he said, he got first invitation to go to Hajj in 1999. So he said, I cannot go one month, there's too much I cannot read my wife in the stands. So the second invitation come comes for him. And he said, again, I cannot go. And then he said, third time somebody called him and said, they said, Okay, we have an
invitation for you to come as a guest of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and you will be staying on in 15 days, and you're going to fly with a plane. So he said his wife after this third invitation he got in the period now staying at 100 short as possible. 15 days, he said, his wife told him Okay, now, you cannot deny this refuse. So basically, this was when it was destined for him to go to her. We're almost out of time. Couple more. Just couple more questions. What advice would he give for people who are struggling with the nationalism? They're searching for purpose, but now they find it in Islam, but they're Croatian or maybe Serbian. And there's that nationalistic pride there that
might be getting in the way. Because Chi p town I COVID de casa de salud sada Karima Lima, you decrease the Nazi Nazi prominent data journalism I took British Columbia with a previous Sankara Muslim my central server called subregion Islamists.

brothers it says that
first Allah Spano tala one God, He guides who he was. So whenever somebody is guided, and he has the belief in his heart, and on his tongue, he says that it must follow with the action. Basically, it's not full in on full belief without the actions. And he say what he already previously mentioned, that everybody will be tested, and God made it this this way that he will test everybody and he will test the believers. So, we must be prepared to to suffer these tribulations. But he said we must always remind ourselves that the price for for belief and for being firm and and maintaining the sun is Jana is heaven. So what is there in heaven is all the all the things that we're wishing for, and
we cannot imagine and they will last forever. So he said, the God set the price high for this world that we're living and we must be ready to go through tribulations. And he said, even maybe this period can last few months, one year, two year, two years, three years of Tribulation. He says, I believe that Indian God will open his bounty and he will reward how does how does he respond?

He's now a belief about Jesus about his Islam is what Quran says about him that is one of the prophets of God. But previously, those two things during his conversion to Santa was one of the main points that you're reading at most beautiful things that he read in Islam, his description of Jesus of his service and so, so he's saying that reading Bible and reading Quran, he said something most humane, most beautiful things that could be said about prophet is Jesus was said in the Quran. Thank you very much for a wonderful story. A shout out this could be a benefit to everyone that watches
