Words of Gratitude to Bilal Fadl & Tharwat AlKharbawi


You risk your life,
And peacefulness,
In such an atmosphere
That is full of eruption,
To enlighten people,
Thank you Bilal
Fadl and Al Kharbawi,
I think your full name is
Tharwat AlKharbawi,
I am calling you without titles,
For you are far higher than
Shallow titles,
I learned from both of you
More than I can say.

I learned who planned
To kill ‘Alne’rashi’ Basha,
And why Said Kotb was
Persecuted;
Before you,
I did not really care,
But from now on,
I should care,
For what happens on your land
Affects us whether we like it,
Or not
I never knew that Kotb
Was the one who put
The seeds for the distorted
Thinking groups such as
“ Al Takfeer Walhejrah”;
Those people divide people
To two groups: Believers
And nonbelievers as if they
Knew what is inside hearts.

Thanks for the channels and
Programs that introduced
You to us, we people who
Can’t read your books
And can’t reach to many others.

Thanks again, for you reminded
Me of the good old Egyptian spirit
That taught the Arab World
A lot and helped to build,
After Colonies time.
The new Arab personality.

Thanks for both of you
For the enlightenment,
I hope you will not
Pay a high Price for it.

Jeddah,
