1) In last July, I write one post about Top Malaysian Islamic preacher in Facebook to check on popularity of Islamic ustaz/ ulama in Malaysia.
2) In July, Ustaz Azhar Idrus only have about 750,000 follower. Within 5 month, he gather another 250,000 facebook follower which accumulate about 1 million follower today (2 December).
3) With average 1000 ~ 2000 new likes per day, he is now a major celebrity incategories of scholar and Islamic preacher and the number still growing.
4) He surely a phenomena to many Malaysian. He is not a handsome guy, but his method and approach are very attractive.
5) 1, 000,000 may be small number for celebrity, but for small country as Malaysia, it represent a very huge amount of support. He outnumber many top singers, actor, actress in Malaysia which put him in different league.
One of most influence man in Malaysia and growing.
