I called my parents every Saturday without fail. And this morning, Abah told me that my Grandmother, Emak’s birth mother, died about 2 hours before I called
Innalilla wa inna lilla hirajiun
( From Allah we come, To Allah we return).
She was nearly 90 and died of a very severe asthma attack in the hospital surrounded by her loved ones. She’d a wonderful, long life. I was very fortunate to have spent time with her when I was in Malaysia last year. Although she was in her early stages of dementia, we’d some wonderful conversations which I will always cherish.
I’m going to miss my wonderful Uwan. Rest in peace and may Allah be with you always.
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds:
The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful:
Owner of the Day of Judgement.
Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) was ask for help.
Show us the straight path:
The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.
(1 : 1-7)
