Dear Dr. Albar, As-Salamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah!
Indeed, Dr. Ghanem mentioned in his poem," you are a great pride for Yemen, a win to KSA, and above all the Muslim Ummah." I am honored to know, associated with you as well be a humble student at your school of revivalism.
On this 70th birthday, I pray for your happiness, of course, but also for a greater sense of fulfillment in work, an ease of communication with those you love, and a sense of satisfaction in all that you have accomplished. Above all, may you rest secure in the knowledge of Allah's constant love and care for you, personally.
Dr. Shihab, I appreciate sharing your poem with all of us.
