Don't put off...

A reminder to me...




Last night my first hunch was to wear a black dress today but I changed my mind and ironed my pink "baju kurung" instead, hoping that the "sweet" colour would cheer her up when I go to visit her.


Later last night I sent her a short message at whatsapp, thought we could chat...but receiving no answer I assumed that she had slept.


This morning I packed this little gifts that were meant to be given whenever we could find the time to meet, I pictured her beautiful smile when she looked into the gift bag..






...Just before noon, I took a cab to the General Hospital and had to wait till 12.30 for the visiting hours to start...and whilst waiting, tried calling her number but it went straight to the voice mail.


Once the doors were opened for visitors, I walked up 3 flights of stairs but found out I was in the wrong building and had to walk to another one..and this time I could use the lift to the 3rd floor.


and on the way I was thinking, "finally...I could see her" (after quite sometime we'd make the plan to meet).


Walked into the ward, one helpful nurse asked the name of patient I was looking for and so I told her.

"I'm sorry..., she just passed away this morning...her body was just released...", she told me.

I was shocked and didn't want to believe at first, showed her the picture in my phone in case she got it wrong... and she said, "yes, that was her..."


By 12.45 pm I'd made the call to inform my sister in K.T who waited for news on her friend since their college days...sorry that I was too late to convey her love to her good friend.


And yes...finally I could see her, but in her final "dress" at the mosque..


................Alhamdulillah all the rituals and services were carried out smoothly and arwah was then taken to her final resting place just after 3pm...


She'll be sadly missed by her loving family and friends...but now no more "suffering" on her cancer...may she rest in peace...


"Dari Allah kita datang, kepada Allah kita kembali...Semoga Allah SWT mencucuri rahmat ke atas ruhnya, redha akan hamba-NYA dan ditempatkan bersama para salihin....amiinn"


Al-Fatihah.
