Habib Salim bin Umar bin Hafidz at Masjid Istiqlal Indonesia, 22 August 2022


MasyaAllah Tabarakallah, I was in awe, utterly in awe, and you will be too, if you care to watch and listen to Habib Salim bin Umar bin Hafidz at this event. 
(Refer the YouTube link below for the livestream on Nabawi TV channel)

If nobody had introduced him as the son of Habib Umar bin Hafidz, you, and anyone who knows Habib Umar could have easily guessed, he is one, a remarkable one!

He was in tears as he delivered pertinent points on the 'Alastu birobbikum' exchange between the Lord and His creations as narrated in the Quran.

I felt ashamed of myself, of my weaknesses, at seeing how a venerable soul like Habib Salim could sincerely and intelligently feel and articulate the episode and its lessons.

I hope I will be given the tawfik to rewatch and study his speech and subsequently draft a transcript, and that of Habib Kazim's and Habib Ali Al-Jufri's too bi-iznillah.

Thankfully, Habib Ali had insisted on Habib Salim speaking when the latter initially persistently refused.

I once shared a transcript of his tausiyah given at Masjid Muadz bin Jabal, Malaysia in 2013. It's wonderful to see how he has grown to be a close resemblance of his father, MashaAllah.

May Allah include us among the muhibbeen, lovers of the awliya. Aamiiin.

MashaAllah. This past few days have been amazing listening to his talks. I am internalizing and making mental notes of his tausiyah hoping to post a couple of summary on this blog bi-iznillah.
