Yet another friend taken from my life this morning. He passed away at the Ampang Hospital after going into coma for more than 2 weeks. He was a bit like my big brother. Always doing something even in his old age. It was really sad to see him so helpless in the hospital bed. I last saw him day before yesterday and he woke up from his 15 days coma and I talked, held his hand, wipe sweat from his forehead and tears from his eyes.... I knew he was wanting to say something. .. didn’t expect that he woke up to say goodbye. Praying he was going to recover. A few hours after my visit he went back into coma, and never recover.
Just 3 months back I visited his home, and he was already not feeling too good, easily tired and experiencing back pain. We talked and I “reported” to him on the latest development and who doings what (as best as I could)…
As Muslim we accepted the inevitable. I’ll always remember the time we talk about 1-computer- for a person his age I admired him for his knowledge on the latest in computer tech. And he mentioned he would like to go into business in this field. Which he did; 2-smoking- between a non smoker and a heavy smoker. He did said “bos bersyukur le tak de keinginan merokok, saya dah tak boleh berenti”; 3- red spray paint- I requested that he take it easy with the red spray paint which he used frequently to indicate rejected portion of the constructed building.
He was a very sporting guy going along with all the craps from the young guys. I had fond memories of him and will miss him. We will pray for you. Al-fathihah.
Saying Inna Lillah is a form of worship. This is to adopt the attitude of surrendering to God’s will instead of complaining against fate. It is to convert the loss into a new discovery. This phrase, ‘We are from God and to God we shall return’ is, in short, an acknowledgment of God's godhead on the part of His servants.
