Al-Fatihah! In memory of 'Babah'@ Hj.Said bin Hj.Ahmad

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un. From Allah we come and to Allah shall we return.


We received news yesterday afternoon that 'Babah' @ Hj.Said bin Hj.Ahmad, my wife's uncle had passed away at Hospital Pekan, Pahang due to old age complications.

I had just met Babah on Saturday, November the 24th and managed to take a video recording of him with me at the Majlis Aqiqah of our grand nephew Mohd.Isaac AlFayed Cheong at my relatives residence in Kuantan.

I loved being with Babah and cherish the moments I got to engage with him before. He was in his late eighties.

We were on our way to Kuantan last night to attend his funeral which was scheduled to be held this Friday morning but due to the rising flood waters which had cut off the East Coast Highway at Lanchang, we had to sadly cancel our plans and return home here to KL.

Even Babah's janazah had to be airlifted by helicopter to his home in Kuantan as the bridge to Pekan was inundated with rising floodwaters and travel by road was virtually impossible to all traffic.

We returned home to KL in the early hours this morning.

Babah will surely be missed by all of us, especially me who loved listening to him as he shared with me about things from the past.

May his soul be blessed by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and be placed with those upon whom rests the Mercies and Blessings of Ar Rahman. Ameen.

May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala bless you my dear friends for your condolences.

It's an inevitable process of life for us all, right?

One of these days, you will hear of my passing.

I hope that I get to perform my Hajj with my spouse before returning to His Mercy, Insya Allah.

I pray that each of us will live a fruitful life and be amongst those who have contributed our part to nation building by utilizing the internet to build bridges amongst our fellow mankind.
