Komen Abu Aqif: Posting sebelum ini silap, yang sebenarnya bukan Sheikh Abdul Rahman As-Sudais yang datang PWTC. Yang sebenarnya tetamu VVIP adalah Sheikh Khalid al Ghamdi. Mungkin mereka tersilap info agaknya.
Dr Fathul Bari sempat berbual bersama Shekh Khalid al Ghamdi dan sheikh mengucapkan syabas dan tahniah kepada Perdana Menteri kita Dato' Sri Najib Tun Abdul Razak di atas keprihatinan beliau dengan usul dan cadangannya yang menjaga agama Islam di Malaysia seperti mendefinasikan Islam di dalam perlembagaan. Islam yang dimaksudkan adalah Islam yang mengikut acuan Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah mengikut kefahaman Al Quran dan Sunnah dan ia akan dikuat kuasakan di dalam perlembagaan Malaysia. Ini adalah satu bukti bahawa pemimpin kita mengambil berat akan agama Islam. Orang ramai perlu memberi sokongan kepada beliau.
Terharu melihat pemimpin melayan baik ulama. Bagaimana diaorang boleh kata pemimpin kita tolak Islam? Hairan betul!
Rakaman khutbah sheikh belum ada. Akan diusahakan. InsyaAllah. Dan berikut adalah temubual dengan Sheikh Khalid sekitar isu biodata beliau yang sempat dikumpulkan (bukan di Malaysia).
Is it possible to tell us about yourself? About your studies? And about your appointment as Imam of Masjid ul-Haram? And when did that happen?
First of all, I would like to thank you my dear brother for this favour and this meeting and I ask Allah swt to make this meeting full of barakah.
As for me, My name is Khalid bin Ali Al-Ghamdi. I was born in Makka tul Mukarrama Allah honour it and guard it. My elementary, middle, secondary as well as university studies were all in Makkah All praises be to Allah.
And I graduated from the University of Ummul Qurra from college of Dawah and Usool Ad-Deen in the department of writers and sunnah. I obtained a masters in recitation and a doctorate in tafseer All praises be to Allah.
I was appointed as President of the department of recitation from a long time, then I was appointed as a judge in the college of usool ad-deen til now and this is the third position for me; a judge of the college.
As for my appointment as Imam of Masjid ul-Haram, it was in 25th dhul-Hijjah 1428 with the help of Allah azza wa jall. And this is the greatest honour, the honour Allah alone gave me and that is leading the Muslims in the Sacred Place in Makkah (i.e. Masjid ul-Haram)
Among those whom I thank, firstly and lastly I thank Allah subhanu waTala for this great favour. Then I want to thank the leaders of the Affairs, May Allah reward them abundtandly) for this confidence which they placed in me and thought the best of me, InshAllah I will not fail everyone. As I thanked them, I must thank my parents who have had a significant impact in the processes/stages of my life. As I must thank my wife, my children and those who have had an impact in what I have and this is all from the blessings of Allah.
From the Imam of Masjid Al-Amerra, Sheikha Al-Khalidiyya to the Imam of Masjid ul-Haram, what was your feeling when you heard the news?
I am not able to describe my feelings because it is something indescribable. Truly it is a great command because I was the Imam of a small masjid with a limited number of Musalleen. As for now, I have become the leader, leading salaat for a hundred thousand muslims. And in the days of Hajj, I have lead salaat for a million people. This command is not believable and is not describable which is why I am not able to describe this feeling. And I am confident that this is a bounty from Allah azza wa jall and I can not thank him enough. And I thank Allah for what I performed; this great blessing which is the leading of the Muslims in this place which is the most sacred place, the most pure place on the surface of this earth. All praises are to the Lord of the Universe and there is nothing like Him.
Was being the Imam of Masjid-ul-Haram a desire for you?
Yes, this was my desire and there is no doubt that I wanted to be in this place, leading the people, leading a million people in salaat. But this gift came to me from Allah without me being asked, or questioned or long sought. This was the qismat of from Allah, the destiny which Allah subhanu waTala had written for me.
Before I was the Imam of Haram, I lead people in a small Masjid for about 5 years. And (then) I led people in the hajj season and you know that the small masjid was a thumbnail image in comparison to Haram in the hajj season. All praises be to Allah, when I was appointed in the Haram, I had experience in leading lots of Musalleen (those who pray)
What was the first salaat that you led in the Haram? When was it? What was your feeling when you led the first salaat in the haram?
The first salaat was salaat Adh-Dhuhr was on Wednesday the 23rd of Dhul-Hajjah 1428. As for the first jahriyya salaat, it was Salaat ul-Ishaa on Sunday 27th of Dhul-Hajjah 1428.
It was a strange setting that I read in Salaat ul-Ishaa in the first salaat for me the words of Alalh in Surat Yunus (58. Say: “In the Bounty of Allah, and in His Mercy (i.e. Islam and the Qur’an); - therein let them rejoice.” That is better than what (the wealth) they amass.) and this was a strange setting but I did not purposely choose it; it came from Allah swt
As for my feelings, it was scary, strange and wonderful; I felt my heart will come out of its place but the firmness of Allah subhanu waTala kept me firm. Because this was the first salaat when a thousand hujjaj (pilgrims) prayed behind me. When I gave the first takbeer, I felt a strange feeling of fear and dreadfulness but when I began the recitation of Fatiha and verses from Surat Yunus I felt that things began to calm down All praises be to Allah and this is all from Allah subhanu waTala.
What is the reason for your visit to South Africa?
It is an invitation from the Muslims in South Africa, especially in Durban from the Establishment of the Helpers and from all the Muslims in Johannesburg and in Cape Town. And these cities are the ones which I will be visiting with the permission of Allah and I will visit the Muslims in it. Where an invitation has been presented to all the Muslims and they have accepted it. I was nominated by the General Presidency of the Affairs of the Haramain Alhamdulillah so I came here for Dawah and I ask Allah to produce its fruits InshaAllah.
