Shaykh Hisham: Meeting with Chilean Miners

The Chilean Miners, rescued after 70 days underground, come to meet Mawlana Shaykh Hisham on Feb. 4 2011. Despite just returning from a long and tiring trip to Miami, and the lateness of the hour the miners chose to visit Mawlana Shaykh Hisham and the gathered attendees. Shaykh Hisham placed his own turban on spokesman Mario Sepulveda's (known as "Super Mario") head. Mario said:

We realized that everything that is happening through us is related to the great work of Allah, God. We feel really tired, but are highly honored to be here, especially when invited to be with such a nice audience to a meeting for the remembrance of God. [applause] For the next time since you gave such a precious gift, I will give you [Shaykh Hisham] a hat from a Chilean cowboy!
