Al-fatihah

To Sidqi's dear mother.

The first and the last time I met her was at her house in Alor Star, two months ago when we visited her at her home in Alor Star. She was about to start with her chemotherapy session the day after our visit, and if no one told me she was ill, I would'nt suspect any of it: she was jovial and beyond calm.

Though during the visit she was 'full' of life, making meals for her visitors not once, but 7 times a day, my sister told me that before she was diagnosed with the big C, she was quite a different person.

The person that I met was a happy and funny mother to three obedient sons.
SS, a friend of mine, who had the chance of meeting her, said she's one of the most contented persons she have ever met.
She reminds me of my mother, of all loving mothers who cares nothing but for her children.

I still remember what she said: "when you know you're about to die, you'll appreciate life more."
Never did i suspect that she knew her time was coming.
Everyone was positive that she's going to be alright.

But as my sister updated to me, her illness had only worsened in few months.
The image of her in memory seems to betray the truth: I only can picture her smile.

Today, my sister texted me to tell that Auntie had just passed away.

Al-fatihah.
Sidqi, your loss is felt and I pray that Auntie will be placed amongst the Muqarabeen.
Ameen.


"...and the angels shall enter upon them from every gate, peace be upon you
for that you persevered in patience, excellent indeed is the final home,"

Dan Tuhanmu telah memerintahkan supaya kamu jangan menyembah selain Dia dan hendaklah kamu berbuat baik pada ibu bapakmu dengan sebaik-baiknya. Jika salah seorang di antara keduanya atau kedua-duanya sampai berumur lanjut dalam pemeliharaanmu, maka sekali-kali janganlah kamu mengatakan kepada keduanya perkataan "ah" dan janganlah kamu membentak mereka dan ucapkanlah kepada mereka perkataan yang mulia[850]. Dan rendahkanlah dirimu terhadap mereka berdua dengan penuh kesayangan dan ucapkanlah: "Wahai Tuhanku, kasihilah mereka keduanya, sebagaimana mereka berdua telah mendidik aku waktu kecil."
-Al Israa'16&17-

betul2, arahan ittaqullah sangat luas maknanya, bertaqwa dengan bersyukur, bertaqwa dgn mecintai hanya Dia & RasulNya
khadijah.azman: ”Tuhan yang membuka jalan kemenangan itu. Dialah yang menurunkan semangat tenang tenteram ke hati orang yang beriman supaya bertambah keimanan dan keyakinan mereka disamping mereka yang sedia ada” (Al-Fath: 4
