Imam of Haram Al-Makki (Grand Mosque, Makkah Al-Mukarramah) visited Hong Kong

 

The Muslim community in Hong Kong was recently accorded the rare honour and privilege of playing host to a distinguished religious leader--Dr. Sheikh Maher bin Mamd Al Mueaqly.

His Excellency Dr. Sheikh Maher bin Hamad Al Mueaqly, one of the most learned man in the Islamic world, was in the territory at the invitation of the Incorporated Trustees of the Islamic Community Fund of Hong Kong (the Trustees) to meet members of the Muslim community.

Accompanied by his brother Sheikh Haitham bin Hamad Al Mueaqly and Sheikh Abdullah Al-Anzi, he arrived late on the evening of Wednesday, 20 April 2016, and was met at the airport by His Excellency Omar B. Al Bunayan , the Consul General of the Royal Saudi Arabia Consulate in Hong Kong.

On Friday, 22 April, 2016, Sheikh Maher led Magrib prayer in Masjid Ammar and gave a talk to the Hong Kong ummah after the prayer. Sheikh Maher reminded Muslims in Hong Kong the importance of noble character in Islam. Sheikh Maher quoted from the Holy Qur’an “And indeed, you are of a great moral character. (68:4)”. He emphasized that it was because of the Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him)’s noble character, his kindness and compassion, gained the love and respect from his companions. “So by mercy from Allah , [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah . Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him]. (Quran 3:159)” So Muslims should learn from Prophet Muhammad and perfect our characters.
On Saturday, 23 April 2016, Sheikh Maher led Zuhur prayers in Masjid Ammar after which he was the Guest of Honour at a lunch hosted by the Islamic Union of Hong Kong (the Union).Over lunch sheikh Maher was briefed on the work of the Union by Haji Saeeduddin, Vice Chairman of the Union.

Following the briefing, Haji Saeeduddin presented souvenirs to the three distinguished visitors. Sheikh Maher was then escorted to the Seminar Room where a group of students from Chinese University were attending a talk on Islam organised by the Da’wah Committee. At the invitation of the organizers, he gave a talk on Islam to the students. The talk lasted nearly one hour. Bro. Ishaq Ma, the Union’s Daw’ah worker interpreted his speech into Putonghua for the benefit of the Chinese students.

Let's share this precious moment together!
