Astounding Osama Alazhary(2) : A Walking Encyclopedia with a Loving Warm Heart and the Hungry cat


My very first encounter
With this grand Philosopher,
Sheikh or Alem and scholar,
Was through a cat
In a TV program.

It is a well known fact
To those who know
Me as a person, poet
And lecturer,
That I love cats,
Since childhood.

Some months ago,
I saw a beautiful video
Taken through a mobile,
Of an admiring student,
For a scholar feeding
LOVE for
A hungry cat in
An Azhar mosque.

A bright interview
Was made with Osama
Alazhary, because it is said
Many non muslims became
Muslims from the film
About him and the cat
In particular.

The modest scholar’s answer
Was as follows: “ All
I wanted is to present
A true clear model
In practice of prophet
Mohammad’s attitude
To all the attending
People in that mosque”.
I watched the moving
Picture many times,
And I noticed the honest
And tender approach to
A common hungry cat.

The scholar was going
Around and around
To give the cat a morsel
Of CARE and LOVE.

Tears jumped from my eyes,
I am before a walking HEART
Not just a scholar,
I followed most of his
Interviews whenever I could,
And I found out
That I am watching
A walking Encyclopedia
With an affectionate heart.
