A 29-year-old Ukrainian woman, Daria Kotsarenko, tragically passed away in Dubai shortly after converting to Islam, according to reports from a prominent social media account dedicated to funeral prayers in the country.

Following her untimely death, scores of Emiratis and expatriates gathered at the Al Qusais cemetery mosque to offer funeral prayers for Daria. Photos shared by the janaza_uae account on social media depicted the overwhelming turnout at the ceremony.

Notably, Daria had no family or relatives in Dubai, as mentioned in a post by janaza_uae on X, which sparked an outpouring of grief, love, and support from the community.

Reports suggest that Daria arrived in the UAE as a tourist and later began seeking employment opportunities. During her time in the country, she not only explored career prospects but also found solace in the teachings of Islam.

Documents widely circulated on social media indicated that Daria, originally a Christian, embraced Islam in Dubai on March 25. Tragically, she passed away only a few hours after her conversion, reportedly due to a heart attack. Her passing occurred during Ramadan while she was fasting as a new Muslim.

Daria's story deeply resonated with many, leading to a significant turnout at her funeral prayers. This display of solidarity is not uncommon in the UAE, where communities often come together to support new converts.

An analogous instance occurred in November 2022 when a 93-year-old woman named Louis Jene Mitchell, also known as Um Yahya, passed away shortly after embracing Islam while in the UAE with her son. Similar to Daria's funeral, the janaza_uae account shared details of Um Yahya's conversion and funeral, drawing a large attendance from residents of Abu Dhabi.

Such acts of support have garnered praise from figures like Lt-Gen Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, who commended these efforts as exemplary of Emirati values.
