The Pain of Ibrahim Between Residence and Departure
Ibrahim Al-Ali, the Child
The attainment of aspirations is not merely wishful thinking, But this world is seized through persistent endeavors. Nothing is insurmountable for a determined people, When their resolve is supported by steadfast determination.
If the poet Ahmed Shawqi were to see this child, He would say the verses I’ve said when witnessing Ibrahim Al-Ali, Guiding his sheep with his staff, holding his book and Quran with his right hand, Seeking a brighter future in a land exhausted by wars and conflicts.
Our student, Ibrahim, faced educational challenges due to harsh economic and living conditions, As his family had to roam in search of pasture for their sheep amidst the prevailing drought in the Middle East.
Ibrahim works to assist his family in shepherding their sheep, Until their flock fell victim to a mine left from the wars in the region. By the grace of God, Ibrahim survived, but he suffered an injury affecting his speech, Resulting in difficulty articulating words clearly, making him stumble in his reading and writing.
Huda Charitable Organization established an educational class in the area where Ibrahim currently tends to his sheep. He joined the Huda class in the fifth session in the village of Al-Duwayrah, near Ras al-Ain.
From the very first day of joining, it was evident to all the intellectual capacity planted in his mind, Yet, his speech posed a challenge in keeping up with his able-bodied peers.
