Ali Abdula Rahman Sharif, a Somali pilgrim, has regained his ability to hear and speak after he lost it for twenty yeas as a result of the war in his conutry.
Hajji Sharif said his hearing and speaking abilities started to appear gradually last Saturday after he accomplished the performance of Arrival Tawaf (Tawaf Al- Qudum).
He added that about 29 years ago, when he was working as an accounting manager in Somalia, he was shot during the civil war and lost the ability to speak and hear.
He then moved to live in Great Britain, where he consulted a number of specialist doctors, but unfortunaly he was shocked to know that there was no hope to hear or speak again.
He decided not to return to Somalia, the place where he lost these very precious senses, and lived in Britain with his wife and four sons.
He thanked Allah for this blessing and mercy and he said that after performing his Tawaf around the holy Ka'abah, he took off his Ihram and drank some cups of Zamzam water, then he headed toward the WC area in the southern piazzas of Grand Mosque. After he went out of the WC area,he was shocked to realize that he could hear the voice of the Muezzin calling for Fajr (dawn) prayer.
Hajji Sharif used to write down when he wanted to communicate or say something and now he hears and speaks as he used to do twenty years ago. He was taken to Ajyad hospital and his hearing and speaking abilities were diagnosed and found very normal and healthy.
This story is nothing but a miracle , a blessing and mercy from the Almighty.
