"The meal consists of whole and chopped dates, hot tea with lemon and honey, olive oil to groom his beard, and a 'miswak' stick, a twig from the Peelu tree commonly used in Muslim countries to clean the teeth."

Robbing and killing people, he was already following in Mo's path before he converted.

So, what do you think?

Now that he has accepted Islamic faith, do you think they should not grant his last request?

Is Miswak available in the USA?

They should grant it, and they should extend this courtesy to more Muslims.

Maybe because we are needed in our respective countries to try to fend off the incumbing takeover ...?
Because, you know "the caravan (read : the invasion) is not gonna stop" by itself ...
If we also leave ... who's going to prevent you from taking final control of our lands ?

Abdullah Sharif Kaazim Mahdi commited his crime in ignorance of the truth of Islam. When you revert back to Islam as you were the day you were born Allah forgives all except associating fake partners with Him. When he accepted Islam he bacame purified. May Allah accept him. Ameen.

I suppose, you do not realize that you are impertinent?

Nobody "was born a Muslim" except children of Muslim parents.

Spread the word, as there are too many ignorant Muslims.

This man, is being put to death to be punnished for breaking a major law...he murdered another human being. And in his state the punnishment is death. so he will be paying the ultimate price for his crime.
What is between this man and God...is personal.
As a man, about to die...he still deserves a level of dignity.
His last wishes, within reason, and if obtainable...should be granted to him the same as they would be to anyone else.

I agree let him enjoy a consideration he did not provide to his victim to prove the almighty is gracious and forgiving,
and since he has overcome as the lord says let him be given peace and walk with the lord I'm glad to see the daughters will be finally given justice for this terrible crime but they should not bare witness to his death.

I do agree that he is purified after agreeing he wronged this family and turned to GOD repenting of his former self and crimes.

But God and Allah both state punishment for the spilling of innocent blood deserves death,
now the daughters will have the same chance that this man had for the murder of their father they are owed the spilling of this mans blood fo recompensation.
SO TO SPEAK
life for life!

The hate on this page is disgusting (I know not everyone had harsh words). Can you really categorize all Muslims and say behead them all? How can you take the evil of few and punish all who didn't commit 9/11? May god help you when you are indeed and someone have enough love for God to help you when in need. God bless.
