Famous South Korean pop band singer, Daud Kim, performed Umrah for the first time since he converted to Islam in 2019. The YouTuber had often shared his desire to visit the holy city of Makkah and Madina, and his wish finally came true. Considering himself as the “luckiest guy” on the planet, he took to his Instagram to share pictures and updates from his spiritual experience.
Daud posted a series of pictures of himself in Ahram at the Kaaba and a clip of the surroundings.
“Finally I came to Makkah. I am the luckiest person because Allah (SWT) chose me and He brought me here. Masha Allah,” read the caption. Being grateful for the oppurtunity, 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.”
He also wished everyone a happy Ramadan Mubarak.
In 2020, formerly known as Jay Kim, Daud made a surprise announcement on his social media that he decided to change his faith to Islam. It was after that he changed his name from Jay to Daud.
