من زاده تواضعه رفعة و حبا و اجلالا

Those who knew him closely, knew that he is a very simple person. still carrying this shy, lonely child from El 7alawat deep inside him.
no matters how famous he got, how far he travelled, how much he earned- Halim never changed. as simple, clean and clear as ever.
People, when truely good deep inside, dont change when getting famous or rich, holding more certificates or taking on higher positions.

Time never changed him, money and fame didnt change his transparent soul. his poor childhood never thrown behind his back and forgotten, he was proud to have been poor, to have been raised in a simple family, in a small village in an orphanage - at a certain time.

His pure soul never allowed him to act arrogantely with those arround him, for he understood the meaning of talent:it is a gift from Allah. nothing he earned, nothing of his own doings.
his fame never blurred his vision or got him away from the road he planned for himself. Family and friends remained close and dear to his heart- just as they were at his beginnings, when none knew Abdel Halim Shabana.

Ah ya Halim.your courteous behaviour showed others' arrogance clearly to my eyes. I can see how ugly they are, i can see how superficial people arround me are.
And again, I run to you. run to your home seeking your warm smell.

Thank you for being who you are.
Thank you for keeping the considerate, kind behaviour and give an example of a kind heart.
Thank you for giving such warmth to a stranger - me.
Thank you for never letting me down, and never being mean.
Thank you for being honest in your feelings, no matters what they are.
Thank you for being human.
Thank you for never disappointing me.
I appreciate the considerate and kind person you are, hate my ugly surrundoings without such kindness.

May Allah bless your soul and treat you with his kindness for all what you gave.

    شوفي يا سيدتي

    ! لا يدخل الجنة من كان في قلبه مثقال ذرة من الكبر

    ... باختصار

    ... من تواضع لله رفعه

    ... وما زاد الله عبدا بالتواضع إلا عزا

    But, Houbba, I have a question here, do you really think Halim was a motawade3 guy?!

    Nice post dear

    :) x

  2. yes, he was.
    history never lies.
    those who lived with him and witnessed it, told about it.
    it was his good nature together with his talent were what got him others' respect during his life and 33 years after his death.
    look at today's artists, compare and you will see the difference :)

  3. Hebba, thank you for 'following' me on my two blogs and for the kind words you left, especially on my "Let's Talk" post.

    I've been reading through some of your blog, your reason for starting it is one of the best I've heard. What a wonderful way to honour a man who has had such a huge impact on your life. I'm sure he's proud.

    You seem to be a very kind, compassionate person. I'm sorry to hear that you've experienced pain, but I'm glad you haven't given up on people. I will always believe that they are inherently good.

    I think it's important to talk about both the sad and happy times. If you ever want to e-mail me some time and share your story with me I'll listen.

    You asked if I'm real. Yes I am. :)

  4. thank you Barry for those words.
    that is very kind of you.
    and actually i loved both blogs. they are of different natures, yet there is soemthing connecting them. this is what i felt when reading some of the posts yesterday.
    i will tell you exactely what it is after i read more posts.
