And she continued: “I arrived in Medina first with my father, and women were allotted time to visit the tomb of the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, and there I saw the Prophet Muhammad, the best prayer and peace be upon him, at his grave and he was looking at me. (Oh my beloved, O Messenger of God) and I do not believe what is happening to me.”
And Shams Al-Baroudi added: “The wife of my father’s friend at the time was with me, who shouted at me, saying (Above me, Shams), and I left the place in a daze, to the point that my father asked me why I was late inside, so that his friend’s wife answered saying (bless her.. This is our Lord Fatah). I did not understand the meaning of her words due to the excessive state of silence and astonishment that possessed me at the time.”
And she continued: “Then we headed to Mecca to perform the rituals of Umrah, and during the circumambulation, other conquests occurred to me, including my vision of the Fatiha of the Books complete with its meanings while I was praying, and when I committed I read the runways of the walkers in 3 parts, and I discovered that I saw everything that was written, I swear to God that this is what happened. with me then.”
And she continued, “My heart was convinced at that time that everything would pass away, whether money, prestige, form or beauty, and only the strength of my faith would remain with me in my grave, and at that time I decided to retire from acting while I was at the height of my artistic glow.”
