Habib Ummar Bin Hafiz from Yemen will be visiting our soil soon.
He is the mudhir of Darul Mustaffa and Darul Zahara in Tareem , Yemen. Alot of Ulama's came from the holy land of Yemen, one of them being Almarhum Sheikh Omar Alkhatib who was teacher to many of our ustaz's here in Singapore.
I first heard of Habib Ummar from my husband about 2 years back. My hubby was friends with Ustaz Hasan Saifouridzal ( imam masjid Ansar ). Ustaz Hasan was then a newly graduate from darul Mustaffa and had just return from Tareem. He shared with us many good stories about Habib Umar.
The first time I attended Habib's Ummar's talk, I felt very blessed that I was one of the jemaah's in the mosques that came to hear this pious man giving sermons. His advise were like pearls in the ocean. I went home telling my parents how wasted it was for them to have missed Habib Ummar's sermon. Its not as if he's always in Singapore. Since then, I wait for his arrival every year, usually some time after bulan Muharram. Insyallah, this time round, I plan to attend his talk at Masjid Ansar and Masjid Kassim. If i can make it, I might attend the one at Masjid Aleem siddique too because there will be Qasidah Burdah, which I have not heard before ( i think ) ...and my friend says its very nice. The maulid at Masjid Ansar will be maulid Al Habsyi- Simtut Durar, not so common here.
