7 days ago, I was awaken by a phone call from my wife at 1am that came with a very shockingly sad news.
7 days ago, I drove up from JB to KL (actually to Bukit Mahkota, nearby Bangi/Nilai) with my trusty seasoned car at 2am. The journey that normally took slightly more than 3 hours, was done this time with a personal best of 2hrs 40mins.
7 days ago, as I stepped into my parents in law’s house, for the first time I saw my mother-in-law lying on the floor, motionless.
7 days ago, for the first time I saw my whole in-law family members were in sober and shedding tears at the same time. I was not excluded.
7 days ago, many of my wife’s family members came all the way from near and far, to pay a last visit to my mother-in-law.
7 days ago, I was standing inside the grave during the noon, lowering down my mother-in-law into her final resting place before she wakes up again in the after life to meet Allah The Almighty.
7 days ago, I lost my mother-in-law. I have known her for more than 9 years now. And now I know how sadden it is to lose someone dear to your heart.
We only have one mum and one dad in this world. One of the three things that will definitely follow and help them in their next lives is, the prayers from their obedient children.
“Semoga Allah mengampuni segala dosa-dosa mak, dan semoga Allah merahmati dan mengurniakan Syurga yang kekal abadi kepada mak. Amin ya rabbal ‘alamin.”
