The whole family including the King is strongly opposed to the attitude Siti Khotijah, whom very obedient to her new beliefs. Various methods pursued by the King and his relatives to change the hearts of Siti Khotijah, but never succeeded. Until one time later, Siti Khotijah said, “if Islam which I now profess is not correct, then one day when I died all over my body will issue a very foul smell, but on the contrary, if Islam is correct, then one day when I died all over my body will issue a very sweet and fragrant scent. ”
Until one night, while Siti Khotijah do a Night Prayer in the state of her bedroom which the door was open, accidentally seen by a royal courtier who was on guard.
