O Allah please bless this man.. Ustaz Shamsuri Ahmad

I have been listening to his lectures since 1997. And I am still listening once in a while. Who is this guy that I claim to have so much admiration for his lectures? Since I never met him in person nor attended his lectures.

His name is Shamsuri Ahmad, unfortunately I don't have and couldn't find his biography. According to my limited knowledge, he is a religious teacher of Penang origin. He actively gives Islamic lectures at many places in the northern region of West Malaysia (Penang, Kedah and Perlis). He is well known as "Ustaz Shamsuri" among Malays and was awarded Dato'ship somewhere last year.

I have heard many lectures delivered by many Islamic preachers in Malaysia. Honestly I think he is one of the best preachers we ever had in this century. And I thank Allah, our mighty God for that. His choice and arrangement or words are good, easy to understand and the points he wants to deliver are always reachable to my brain. Since his lectures would have been for the predominantly Malay speaking community, so he used Bahasa Melayu (Malay language) with an interesting Penang accent. I like his accent by the way.

Being a good Muslim, does not secure him from being slandered or dislike. Let me not elaborate those bad experiences. He handled it very well alhamdulellah.

To those who like to backbite and slander, Islam prohibits such acts.

O you who believe! Avoid much suspicion, in deeds some suspicions are sins. And spy not neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear God, verily, God is the one who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.
[al-Hujuraat 49:12]

Lastly I wish him, Dato' Shamsuri Ahmad, all the best. His lectures do leave a trace in my heart. May Allah bless him and his family and those who listen to his lectures.

Assalaamu'alaikum.
Sedikit tentang biodata Ustaz Shamsuri Ahmad yang saya tahu ialah beliau pernah menjadi guru disiplin di Sekolah Agama Irsyad, Tasek Gelugor, Penang dan kemudian pensyarah di Kolej Matrikulasi Pulau Pinang. Pada tahun 1998, beliau telah ditahan dibawah ISA dan ditempatkan di penjara Kemunting, Taiping selama satu bulan kerana fitnah. Beliau dibebaskan selepas siasatan dan nama beliau telah dibersihkan. Sekarang beliau tinggal di Bertam Perdana Lakehomes, Kepala Batas, Pulau Pinang dan masih aktif memberi kuliah di masjid2.

Mutiara hadis UiTM
JOYFUL NEWS to my Muslim brothers and sisters in Malaysia

Hard to find Saheeh Hadith (authentic hadiths) in Malay (Bahasa Melayu)? Not anymore! If you are really looking for authentic hadiths in Malay, do not hesitate to go to this website:

Koleksi Hadis Sahih UiTM
(UiTM's Authentic Hadith Collection in Malay Language)
http://www.tmsk.uitm.edu.my/~ir/webhadis/

I have been looking for the noble Malay translation (database) for so long. In fact, there are a few Malay-Malaysian and many Malay-Indonesian translations available in book stores, however, due to some differences in the vocabularies and word structures, the Indonesian version may not be easy to comprehend, while the Malaysian translations are scarce and hard to find.

I really want to thank Fakulti Teknologi maklumat & Sains Kuantitatif (Faculty of Information Technology & Quantitative Sciences), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) and those involve in this Mutiara Hadis authentic collection (IRDC, Pusat Pendidikan Islam UiTM, FTSM UKM, Saba Islamic Media, JAKIM, etc.). Whether you realized it or not, you guys had made such a great contribution to the society. May Allah bless you people...

Mesej yang diberi adalah seperti berikut:

FORBIDDEN

You don't have permission to access /~ir/webhadis/ on this server.

Bro Zakariya, saya sebenarnya tak pasti kenapa ia tak dapat dibuka sekarang. Saya sedari semenjak awal Februari. Sepatutnya klik saja sudah boleh masuk.

InshaAllah saya akan cuba tulis kepada Fakulti TMSK UiTM untuk mendapatkan penjelasan. Kalau tak boleh access, ia satu kerugian kepada umat Islam (khususnya penutur Melayu).

Sementara itu bro Zakariya boleh masuk ke Database Hadis UIAM (dalam English) mengandungi Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawud, dll:

Ahleen bro Khalid. Thanks for the compliment and thanks for dropping by.


Bro Zakariya, saya telah menghubungi seorang Prof di Fakulti TMSK UiTM, beliau kata Hard Disk yang digunakan untuk menyelenggara Database Hadis Sahih telah crash, sebab itu tak boleh di-access. Sekarang dalam proses untuk diganti baru.

I've been listening to Uztaz Shamsuri about the same time as you are, sometimes in the late 90s. And surely, he has been my 'virtual' ustaz ever since. Never meet him in person, but heard so much about him through my brother who's staying in Kedah. He has been following Uztaz Shamsuri's lectures from time to time. During his detention under ISA, never once in my prayer I forgot to pray for his release and safety but I know, Allah knows the best. Alhamdullillah, he is now safe and sound. I missed his lectures almost four years when I was away from the country but soon I got back to Malaysia, I started collecting his lectures and to my listening, they're all sound as interesting and inspriring as usual. To Ustaz Shamsuri, yes, you are the bless to this country. I thank Allah for having you to guide me, inspire me, and more importantly, to bring me closer to Him. May Allah bless us all.
