Dr Rashid Alhamali, KSU and Deputy Rector, Hail University

Dr Rashid Alhamali merupakan ahli penyelidik dalam kumpulan saya termasuk Dr Saad. Pada lawatan saya kali ini, Dr Saad tidak berada di KSU kerana menghadiri persidangan di luar negara. Saya banyak berbincang dengan Dr Rashid Alhamali dalam menyemarakkan budaya penerbitan di KSU termasuk Hail University yang mempunyai pelajar seramai 30,000 orang dan dibiayai penuh oleh kerajaan Arab Saudi. Disamping itu, hasil daripada perbincangan saya dengan Dr Rashid, InsyaAllah saya dijemput untuk ke Hail University pada masa terdekat. "Please bring along your family Dr Zaidi", kata Dr Rashid. InsyaAllah...Terima kasih Dr Rashid kerana menjemput, termasuk menguruskan ceramah dan perjalanan saya ke KSU tempohari.

Day 3-Visiting Professor KSU

Hari ini saya dijemput oleh Dr Rashid Alhamali, rakan penyelidik di KSU dan sekarang bertugas sebagai Timbalan Rektor (Akademik), Hail University, 500km dari kota Riyadh. Beliau membawa saya terus ke College of Business Administration. Buat masa sekarang Dr Rashid berulang-alik dari Hail University ke King Saud University (KSU) setiap minggu bagi memenuhi pengajaran MBA di KSU. Semester depan beliau akan terus berada di Hail University selama 3 tahun. Di College of Business Administration (CBA) saya diperkenalkan kepada Prof. Ahmed Salem Al Ameri, Dekan CBA. Di sini juga berjumpa dengan sahabat Malaysia yang sekarang bertugas di KSU, Dr Razak, bekas pensyarah UM. Terima kasih kepada CBA kerana menjemput saya untuk memberi ceramah mengenai penulisan artikel dalam jurnal.

AlhamduLillah, diakhir ceramah, pelbagai soalan diajukan termasuk cadangan untuk bekerjasama dengan saya dalam penyelidikan dan penerbitan. Terima kasih kepada Dr Ahmed kerana banyak membantu dan juga kepada Dekan Kejuruteraan yang boleh berbahasa melayu, sikit-sikit...

Terima kasih kepada rakan penulis, Dr Rosma, Dr Basir, Dr Sameem, dan Dr Siti Mazlipah kerana bersama-sama membantu dalam penulisan ini. Tahniah kepada semua. Apa yang penting "passion".

Brother Hamdan-New Best Friend

AlhamduLillah, selepas rancak makan kabsa, saya mendapat telefon mengatakan ada seorang tetamu ingin bertemu dengan saya. Tetamu tersebut Br Hamdan, pembantu kepada Dr Rashid ingin menjengguk dan bertanya khabar bagaimana keadaan saya pada waktu ini. Banyak juga perkara yang dibualkan termasuk penyelidikan dalam islamic finance dan banking operation. Terima kasih Br Hamdan kerana banyak membantu dan mengambil berat kedatangan saya ke Saudi Arabia. InsyaAllah, berjumpa kembali di KSU kelak.

First day-Visiting Professor King Saud

AlhamduLillah, saya selamat sampai di Riyadh pada pukul 3.15 pagi dan ketika itu sudah menanti kereta King Saud University bersama 3 orang pegawai. Saya akan berada di Coral Alhamra, Riyadh sehingga pulang ke Malaysia. Harga bilik hotel lebih SR900 semalam dan saya bebas untuk membuat tempahan makan/mimum kerana ianya ditanggung oleh KSU. Pada hari pertama saya hanya berehat dan InsyaAllah saya akan ke KSU pada hari selasa dan rabu bagi ceramah penerbitan artikel. Perjalanan saya bermula di KLIA dan transit di Abu Dhabi dan seterusnya ke Riyadh. KSU memberikan tiket kelas pertama dan AlhamduLillah inilah pertama kali saya ke luar negara dengan tidak terasa letih...
