Kuliah Ustaz Kazim Elias at Perak MB's residence, January 6th 2013
Ustaz Kazim Elias. A name that belongs to a well known religious figure here in Perak and he is well respected by the local Sunnis. A name that has strange, mysterious effects on those fond of wearing green-themed outfits here in the City of Ipoh. Mention the name and they will go berserk. Sometimes we couldn't help wondering why they behave in that manner. Very strange indeed!
Anyway, the team of Ipoh Happenings had the opportunity to be up and close with Ustaz Kazim Elias yesterday. He was there at our Perak MB's residence, giving a lecture to his loyal followings. We were there too, sampling the food served by Ustaz Kazim Elias for our souls. As always, we found Ustaz Kazim Elias to be highly entertaining. His stern but subtle reminders, timed perfectly with some witty humour made his lecture fun and interesting at the same time.
Kudos to our Menteri Besar, Dato' Seri Dr. Zambry Abd Kadir for allowing public religious lectures such as the one we had attended yesterday to be held at his place. We appreciate it very much, thank you. :)
As for Ustaz Kazim Elias, we hope he will double his efforts in reaching out to Muslims living in the City of Ipoh, especially to our young ones. The locals here seldom talk about it but we at Ipoh Happenings can clearly see that there is a widening gap between parents and children here in Ipoh. The Age of the Internet made it even worst. Hopefully, Ustaz Kazim Elias would be able to close or lessen the gap between those two generations.
