The old woman is in the Kingdom to perform Umrah with her son Saeed Obama, President Obama’s uncle, and her grandson Mousa Obama. Sarah is 94 years old and wheelchair-bound.
Obama’s grandmother visited Makkah in and paid a visit to the Holy Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) exhibition. She was also delighted and welcomed the $21billion expansion of the Grand Mosque. Charmed by the exhibition, she was pleased to see Islam being represented in the moderate and right way.
“I am very happy to visit this exhibition, which is a good example for the propagation of Islam in a modern way, supported by scientific and authentic documents,” she was quoted as saying.
Sarah was hopeful the exhibition would travel to other countries of the world in a bid to dispel misperceptions related to Islam. Obama’s grandmother and several family members are Muslims yet he himself has chosen Christianity as his religion.
