Goodbye Obaidah


Goodbye Obaidah

Obaidah Alqudsi, a Palestinain Nasheed artist, known among his friends for his beautiful voice and lovely character. 2 days ago, Obaidah passed away in an Israeli hospital, after being held as an injured prisoner. On 26th August, Obaidah was heading to the Abraham Mosque in the Old City of Hebron. While walking to the mosque, Israeli soldiers shot him 4 explosive bullets; two in the abdomen and two in his legs.

Obaidah, the peaceful soul was murdered in the street with cold blood. Ambulance vehicles were banned from attending to his bleeding body for 30 minutes. Seeing him bleeding didn’t satisfy their evil lust for blood, hence, they beat his body mercilessly. After a while, he was arrested and sent to an Israeli hospital in occupied Jerusalem. Ever since Obaidah was under their custody, he was in a comma. Obaidah spent about 3 weeks in the Israeli hospital; and his family was not allowed to visit him till the last day of his life!

On the morning of the 13th of September, Obaidah’s soul departed to its creator seeking his ultimate justice. Hasbunallahu wa ne’mal wakeel.

Obaidah will always be remembered among his family and friends for his sweet voice and lovely smile. His poetry and Nasheed will always be celebrated by Palestinians, Muslims and all free people of the world as true words of wisdom and honor.
