Being grateful for the opportunity, he further added how he prayed for the entire Muslim community. “Thanks to Allah, thanks for giving me the chance to come to the holiest city in the world. I prayed for all the Muslim brothers and sisters. May Allah forgive our sins and accept our Duas.”

In a separate post, the Korean pop band singer discussed how his belief keeps getting stronger despite the hate he has received. “Thanks, Allah to invite me here, Mecca,” he began writing.
“Since I become a Muslim, many people want to make me a fake Muslim,” Kim added. “They make fake evidence and attack me. And Islamophobists also call me a terrorist. They tell me to kill myself with a bomb. But ironically, these make me stronger.”
“And it makes my beliefs stronger and makes me love Allah more and more,” he continued. “Allah (SWT) knows everything. And I know Allah choose me And loves me. I am a proud Muslim and it never changes. Thanks, Allah to guide me on the right path. I am not a good Muslim but Allah always tries to help me and give me the answer. Thanks to Allah (SWT) I never give up.”
South Korean YouTuber, who gained fame in Malaysia after converting to Islam, earlier shared the five Quranic verses that made him Muslim.
Kim shares how he had a difficult time emotionally and mentally for several years before becoming a Muslim. However, as he read the Quran, he found comfort in it. It helped him cure his depression.
