A profound grief haunted a Kuwaiti donor in his visit to Sudan to share his sympathy the family of Shiekh Gism Allah Mubarak , the former Director –General of Islamic call Organization . The reason of sadness was the death of the Islamic preaching organization manager and the sight of his simply built and furnished house. The Kuwaiti donor thought that a portion of his lavish funds, might have been channeled into improving the situation of the organization director. Obviously, he didn't abuse his position. He lived an austere life resisting temptation. The Kuwaiti donor plane took off while tears wetted his beard.
Shiekh Gism Allah Mubarak served as the chairman for the directors board of the modern Medical Center . In the annual meeting of General Assembly , one of ladies , ostensibly a pediatrician proposed that the medical center should avail freely city-scan . You can guess, the reply of Shiekh Gism Allah Mubarak. He declined vehemently. First, he considered the fate of x-ray machine that might cease and then the wages of physicians and technicians. Second, He believed that if the suggestion was approved, it would be a violation to the contract ratified by the medical center with share-holders who looked forward to lucrative paying off from their investment.
On the other hand, there is an incident that reveals the extent of his genuine humane innermost touches . He learned that my wife suffered from a chronic disease and advised me to buy honey for her. I told him the displayed honey in the market was adulterated. He immediately responded that he knew from he could procure a good honey. But , alas! He passed away before bringing me the promised honey. To my surprise, a few month latter, a lady presented her self to my office at University . She claimed that she was the widow of Shiekh Gism Allah Mubarak and gave away some un-alloyed honey in a fulfillment of her late husband's will. That is an expression of sublime morality and genuineness of fraternal loyalty. Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just a baggage enough. Charles Warner says.
