Just after 10pm, received a phone call from In'am informing us that her dad passed away half an hour before (previous post)...
"Verily, the death from which you flee will surely meet you, then you will be sent back to (Allah), the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen, and He will tell you what you used to do." [Al Jumuah 62: 8]
"And Allah grants respite to none when his appointed time (death) comes. And Allah is All-Aware of what you do." [Al Munaafiqu 63: 11]
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) has said :
"Whosoever consoled a calamity-stricken person, Allah grants Thawab as much to the consoler as the stricken."
"To Allah belongs what He takes and to Him belongs what He gives. And there is a set time by Him for everything. Exercise patience and expect reward(from Allah)."
"Truly! To Allâh we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." (Al-Baqarah(2):156)
May arwah be granted the mercy and blessings of Allah SWT
and may Allah SWT grants sabr and patience to the family on their loss..
Part of being a nanny earlier this month was to send Faraheen and Batrisyia to school on Sunday, 2nd Jan ~ the first school day in Terengganu. But State Govt declared Monday 3rd as the first school day due to the free public holiday given on Friday 31st. Dec by PM.
...and so the job reverted back to their mum and we had a good time relaxing that Sunday..hehe
Monday 3rd, Jan 2011 Batrisyia was all prepared to go...
I'm not really worried about her, she's a "pro", her mum had enrolled her as pre-schooler in that school for the past two years..
Her performances as pre-schooler last year :
~ the fourth girl from left in the front row :-)
May she always be successful in this life and successful in the hereafter, and in the blessings of Allah SWT...amiin.
[note : she must really felt tired that day, came back from school, changed her school uniform and slept for few hours..hehe..]
Received a text message few hours ago from In'am, daughter of mum's cousin in Jeddah to say that her dad "is in critical condition" in Mekah's hospital..
Immediately called her up to ask the status..and it seemed that he has been in the hospital for a week ~ he fell in the house causing bleeding in the head..
Phoned her mum as well..then only I talked to mum as she's close to him, and informed my cousins too.. as my uncle and his family have been very welcoming whenever any one of us performed our Haj or umrah...
Our prayers for him, may he be better soon..and also to his family...
"O you who believe, seek help with patience and prayers, as Allah is with those who patiently persevere" [Al-Baqarah (2):153].
Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) when he visited the sick, used to comfort and say the following prayer :
"O Allah, remove the hardship, O Lord of mankind, grant cure for You are the Healer. There is no cure but from You, a cure which leaves no illness behind."
Yesterday I finally had the chance with some friends to spend some time with our former teacher since she undergone an operation.
Didn't want to trouble her so we brought some food with us to her house.
See all these for only seven of us...hehehe..
We had pleasant, enjoyable hours reminiscing school days, esp. as she was our warden(luckily she didnt have time to tell us the horror/scary stories, hehe) and also our Geography teacher...that even thou we planned to leave after Zuhr prayer/lunch hour, we ended leaving after 'Asr instead and I reached home about 7pm.
What's few memorable hours for someone who had been there for us for 5 years n more after that...sent her a thank you message upon reaching home and she replied that she had a happy time too and invited us to her house again..
