I uploaded this installment on Youtube, on Jan 1 2009 while still in Scotland. The Radio Egypt (Qahirah) version. Tartil Al Quranul Kareem by Sheikh Mahmud Khalil Al Hussary
[الشيخ محمود خليل الحصري‎]

As a child way back then, I can still remember now the mesmerising strains of Quran emitting softly from the old radio we use to have at home. It was way back in the seventies. Mostly at the break of dawn before the Subuh prayers, the local radio station of RTM would most often than not run the recital by Sheikh Mahmud Khalil Al Hussary. It was exactly this Radio Egypt version playing that eventually found its abode in my mind and in my heart throughout my entire life.

We didn't have fancy digital outputs in those days. There were no audio CDs , no internet and not especially Youtubes.. Every now and then Sheikh Mahmud Khalil Al Hussary's recital would appear in my life out of that almost broken down radio of "home" most of the time. Everything was so difficult to get or come by back then. I made my way to the US for my studies. in the early 80s. It was in the USA that I finally lay my hands on the Sheikh's elusive full collection set of Quranic recital audio tapes otherwise known most commonly as CASSETTE tapes... The Islamic movements were on the rise back then and on the shores of the USA, I would run the tapes over and over again. These particular verses were among those closest to my heart in the days where I first found some light to make sense of this world we live in and the life I had. To this day these heart rending passage recited by the Sheikh makes me look so much deeper into myself in retrospect.

These were the men of God whose voice, recitation, intonations and depth of emotions when reading the verses of the Al Quran were so profound that even in our darkness of zhulumat, we could sometimes vividly imagine the Quranic events that unfolded before the eyes of the Sohabah radhiallahu anhum ajmain in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

Their voices reverberated with conviction to every letter and phrase of the Quran that you could almost imagine and understand how much love the Sohabah must have had for the Prophet and God. Nothing in this world for them was too difficult or unattainable for the love of Allah and RasulluLlaah sallallaahu alaihi wa salam.

Herein lies the fault of the Ummat for either as an individual or group, we have somehow lost that love. With this loss came great calamaties upon the entire Ummah over generations upon generations until that we see of today where the Muslims are devoid of any real significance to the prevailing world order of materialism and kufur.

The day we find it back in our hearts will be that dawn of a united Muslims in the tradition of the great Sohabah but I so believe that this union will be in such small  numbers and are actually the union of the Mu'm in (True Believers) while the majority of us will be swept into oblivion by the forces of evil.

"Berfikir tanpa kotak"

Ar Ra'isul Mutakallim, Tabligh Ki Zabaan (Lidah Tabligh) Hadrat Maulana Umar Palanpuri Rahmatullahu 'alaihi berkata: "Orang yang kuat adalah orang yang sanggup bertahan dalam arus kerosakan. Orang yang lebih kuat adalah orang yang sanggup melawan arus kerosakan. Namun orang yang paling kuat adalah orang yang sanggup merubah arah arus kerosakan hingga menjadi akannya arus kebaikan.”

“Dajjal bersama tenteranya mempunyai kekuatan yang amat istimewa dan amat tersusun. Begitu juga Yakjuj dan Makjuj membuat huru-hara di seluruh dunia. Kehebatan mereka tiada siapa yang dapat melawan dan orang beriman berundur dengan hanya makan zikir dan tasbih."

"Allah zahirkan kudratnya hanya dengan labah-labah yang kecil dijadikan asbab untuk menggigit tengkuk-tengkuk mereka hingga mati. Mayat mereka begitu busuk diseluruh dunia. Orang beriman tidak tahan terus berdoa pada Allah. Allah ta'ala hantarkan hujan dan banjir menghanyutkan mereka ke laut. Inilah yang akan berlaku di akhir zaman nanti."

"Amalan dakwah memisahkan hak dan batil seperti air menghanyutkan sampah dari emas dan logam-logam yang lain. Namun pekerja² agama jika wujud cinta dunia dalam hati mereka seperti emas dan disaluti logam-logam lain, maka banyak masalah yang akan timbul.”
