Blind boy pleads for mercy…TV presenter cries

"I only beg my Lord to ease my suffering on the Day of Judgment,” says Egyptian boy

A blind Egyptian boy made a TV presenter and the audience cry when he made an impassioned appeal to God to have mercy on him.

A YouTube film published in Saudi newspapers showed the bearded presenter at the Saudi Alwatan TV station wiping his tears as others who were present during the programme appeared to be touched by the boy’s plea.

The boy, aged over 10 years, said he does not play with friends as he had devoted most of his time to memorise the Quran. He said he still walks to the Quran memorisation centre far from his house in Egypt to study.

“I do not feel embarrassed because of my handicap….I only ask God the Almighty to have mercy on me.  I only beg my Lord to ease my suffering on the Day of Judgment.”
