Saudi Justice: We know that Saudi courts are fair, unbiased, and treat a culprit as a culprit irrespective of his/her background. The Saudi courts set one such precedent on October 18th,2016.
Saudi Prince Turki Bin Saud Bin Turki Bin Saud Al Kabeer was executed for killing a normal Saudi citizen. Just a few hours before his execution, he did many heart-melting things which can be treated as a lesson for all of us.
1- A few hours before his execution, he was allowed to meet his family. He spent around 4 hours with them, and you don’t need special powers to imagine what would have happened there. He departed with a heavy heart after that.
He must have asked for forgiveness for whatever wrong he has done with every one of them. The Imam of Al Safa mosque said that the family and the prince cried throughout their meeting.
“The family was called in to bid the prince goodbye, and during the time spent together, you could see only tears and hear only expressions and sighs of sadness.
2- The Saudi Prince then offered prayers and kept reciting the Holy Quran until dawn. Once again, you don’t need a super imaginary mind to imagine his prayers. He must be asking for Allah’s forgiveness for what he has done. He performed the Fajar prayer there.
3- At around 7 a.m., the warden took him to the police, where his last will was written. He was not able to compose himself. I don’t have any idea why he could not write himself.
4- At around 11 a.m., the family of the victim who was shot dead by the Saudi Prince arrived at the designated area of execution. Saudi Prince made ablution as he was getting ready for the execution.
5- Senior members of the Saudi Prince tried to intervene and talk to the victim’s family members to pardon their son/brother and accept blood money as a last attempt before execution, but they denied it.
6- The Saudi prince prayed Duhr and Asr, and the execution was carried on just after Asr prayer at 4:13 p.m. The father of the victim was expressionless at the time of execution. However, the family of the Saudi prince kept on crying heavily during the execution of their son.
