According to rahyafte (the missionaries and converts website):

Meet the revert who Learned Arabic, Mastered the Quran to translate it into his mother language and spread it all over his country at the age of 67 .

 

Mohammed Knut ,Johan Richard Bernström, a former Swedish diplomat who was born on Oct 22, 19119. He reverted to Islam, and, after he mastered Arabic and learned Quran by heart, he translated the Quran into the Swedish language and became a Muslim scholar.

 

He was the Swedish ambassador to Morocco from 1976 until 1983. On his stay and stability in Morocco for a period of 7 years, He saw the Muslims , listened to their Athan/ Azan and saw how they performed their prayers. And what particularly interested him was the Dawn prayer/ Fajr prayer. “I felt the Muslims have a strong will even in the cold days in Winter, they would get up early to perform the prayer and to worship God. I found that very interesting and I found myself eager to learn more about Islam and Muslims”, he said. For this reason, he discovered the values of Islam, and reverted to Islam in 1986 and became very involved also in Moroccan and Islamic culture.

 

 

He made a great effort to introduce the true meaning of Islam to his country and people and to reduce the distance between Islam and the West, Specially in Sweden.

 

A diplomat who knew the Ambassador, said, “He, “Mohammed”, was living between two cultures, and tried to blend between them; as the walls of his house were filled up with paintings of Western and Moroccan Islamic art at the same time.”

 

She added, “he was a speaker of 13 languages, and was always longing to be more knowledgeable; thus he headed to Morocco, where he studied the Quran and Arabic, and he found an ordinary authentic Islam.”

 

The Swedish ambassador lived as an open minded, Western man and as a new Muslim who truly love his religion and live for it.

 

He passed away on Oct 21, 2009 after 23 years of reversion to Islam and after a life that filled with love to Islam and Muslims.

 

“”Watch his video to know more about him””

 

“May Allah accept his journey to Islam, have mercy on him, rest his soul in peace, forgive his sins and grant him Jannat ul Firdous”! Ameen
