Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah!
The attendees at Majlis Haul Imam Abdullah Al-Haddad held at a masjid in Shah Alam, Malaysia yesterday, were exceptionally blessed. The guest of honor was the highly respected Islamic scholar from Tarim, Yemen, Habib Umar bin Hafiz.
Towards the end of Habib Umar's speech where he spoke about yaqin and delivered a beautiful eulogy of Imam Al-Haddad, Habib Umar presented the audience with a very special gift. He said: "I wish to grant you ijazah 'amiyah (general certificate) for Ratib Al-Haddad with the shortest sanad which I possess. I had received it from my guru Habib Umar Alawi Al-Kaf who received it from Habib Umar Abdullah [Bashasi], who received it from Habib Umar bin Hamid who received it from sohibul ratib Imam Abdullah bin Alawi Al-Haddad. I hereby grant the ijazah to you. There are three people in the sanad between me and Imam Al-Haddad, so that makes you the fourth person, although Imam Al-Haddad has left us 300 years ago!"
"We are here to honor people whom Allah has honored. May Allah gather us with them. By the Essence Who gathers, do not separate us in the hereafter. Bind us together with a heart that is strong in iman (faith), yaqin (certitude), and with love..."

Wallahu a'lam. May I be forgiven for any errors especially on the names of sanad.
