When I first met Abu Hafsa, I could not tell he was blind. His way of talking and expressing himself makes anyone understand clearly what he is feeling.
Once, as we crossed the street in Toronto, Canada, Abu Hafsa started running and he ran all the way to the other side of the street and waited for me on the sidewalk.
I could not imagine how he could do that without being able to see. He told me this was something he used to do as a child - just for fun. He said, he could tell where the cars where and when the light was red or green or even changing colors, because he could hear all.
But not as amazing as listening to him recite Quran - whatever Allah kept from him in the way of eyesight - sure is made up for in the beautiful way Abu Hafsa recites the Book of Allah.
