Ahmad Al Shugairi Tribute Essay

1578 words - 6 pages

In the world, there are many heroes who have their foot prints on the pages of history. Many people have their own definitions and characteristics of their own heroes, and so do I. For me, I think a hero is a great leader whose will and determination is to bring the nation to its core, and change it for the best. Hence I wanted to highlight an Arabian Saudi youth figure, who with his determination has achieved many things that made the Islamic Arabian nation proud of him. He is Ahmad Mazen Al Shugairi, was born in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) in 1973. He devotes his time for the younger people, to help them mature in their faith, work and their knowledge of the world, in order to make it a better place. Mr. Ahmad is an influential man; in fact he has won “The most influential leaders in the world” award for the year 2013 (Facebook, 2013). Yes he is my hero, the person who has all the features that are available on my own definition form of hero. Good leader, with a strong self-confidence and an influential figure that wanted all the best for his nation, especially the Arabian Islamic nation.
Everybody does mistakes and no one is better than the other, no one is complete except Allah. People do mistakes through their life, but that does not mean it cannot be fixed. That’s what Mr. Ahmad went through. In his early 20s, like every young man he has spent almost all of his time in fun and entertainment. However he faced a lot of obstacles when he was in America (California) studying, but these obstacles were the turning points in his life. The first turning point in Mr. Al Shugairi life is that he starts praying. As a Muslim our religion impose us to pray; it is one way of getting closer to almighty Allah, and thanks him for the goods that he gave us. The second turning point is that he stops smoking. Mr. Ahmad life was not going as he wished for when he was smoking, which I think that is what led him to be more desperate in his life. Even his first marriage was not successful, at the end he and his wife went on separate ways. However he got remarried to Rola Dshichh, who is a Saudi fashion designer and that was his third turning point. By that Al Shugairi had represented an image of a young Muslim, who was able to change his life for the better (Turning point, 2008). When people asks Mr. Ahmad for an advice that would benefits them in their life he always answer: “I advise you to always continue in developing yourselves without weariness” and he continued that: “We human all have defects, no one is perfect except Allah, but the difference between people is how to reduce these defects over their journey on this land” (Shugairi A. A., 2011). When Mr. Ahmad went back to his hometown, which is in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), he started a program that helps younger people grow in their faith, and their knowledge of the world, and their role in making it a better place. The program named “Yallah Shbab”, which defend as “Come on Youth” (Ahmad AlShugairi, 2013).For me,...
