AlMaghrib Institute is the new scholar monopoly! haha. Shaykh Muhammad AlShareef writes:
This annoucement for me is like when your local sports team announces that one of the greatest players in the game is now going to be wearing your jersey. (My heart is beating fast right now with excitment)
When I was very young, little kid in a Masjid in Winnipeg, the uncles gathered the youth together for a lecture from this vising speaker from Toronto. I loved his lecture, and I was so impressed that he was using names and terms that I, as a kid, was familiar with. (come to think of it, that may be the first time I was exposed to that style, it became my style years later). It was sh.Abdullah Hakim Quick.
Recently, I’ve been to a half dozen or so conferences with sh.Abdullah Hakim Quick was also one of the speakers. I find that when there is a crowded room at these conferences and you are looking for someone familiar, someone comfortable, someone you know you can enjoy your evening sitting beside and discussing things with … I will always gravitate to sh.Abdullah Hakim Quick (and alhamdulillah, I hope I’ve read it correctly, he also enjoys my company in the same way. At least I hope so, lol.)
