More than ten thousand persons attended his funeral, both Christians and Moslems (twenty five thousand persons in some accounts). But the history of Anba Abraam has not ended. In every Egyptian home there is still a lot to be told about him, for he was trully a God-loving man. The saint's body is preserved at the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of El-Fayoum in Egypt.
The In 1964, the Holy Synod of Coptic Orthodox Bishops decided that his name could be added to the Saints mentioned in the Holy Mass, and many Coptic Orthodox churches around the world today are named after him.
