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.
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.
