Alhamdulillah.. Syukur dan suka sebenarnya dapat berterawih dengan Imam Mahir Al - Mueaqly di Masjid negeri kuantan, Pahang.. Sebenarnya tiga hari 18, 19 dan 20 Ramadhan.. Ana tertanya, salah ke kalau kita kagum akan manusia? Macam kita kagum kalau bahasa orang puteh admire.. Macam kita admire kat Nabi Muhammad kita dan Allah pesan supaya kita jadikan Nabi Muhammad itu contoh ikutan.. Dan Ana selain Nabi Muhammad jadi ikutan, para ulama dan imam pun boleh dijadikan contoh ikutan.. Masa Ana di mekah dahulu, suara syeikh mahir nilah Ana suka dan rindu nak dengar.. Selalu beliau imami solat subuh dan asar.. Alhamdulillah.. Tak tahu nak gambar macam mana.. Di Mekah Imam ni dijaga rapi.. Sekali Imam lalu empat orang penjaganya.. Indahnya kalau malaysia macam tu.. Doakan supaya satu hari nanti kita juga boleh begitu...
