Last night we had a prayer session in Ayah's house attended by close family members and led by Ustaz Jamsari who is the family's Quranic teacher for many young nephews and nieces. The prayer started with Maghrib, then followed by Tahlil, Ishak and Solat sunat hajat. For the past several weeks Ayah's behavioural change has been very marked and caused a deep concern amongst all his children and their spouses. All efforts have been put in either through home nursing provider by one Yacob Abdul Rahman Scholer and also the spiritual healer Abdul Aziz, my wife's cousin. A scan's result is also being awaited. In short , where ageing process is concerned there are many imponderables and this is an eye opener for all of us. It's a reality check, because we take ageing as a natural thing, not until the person whom you love and respect begins to show a deterioration in memory and demonstrate not his character. Allah is Most Great.

I am most thankful to my daughter, Nurul Husna who's idea created this blog for me to pen my thoughts as a consequence of my condition in having a problem of sleeplessness for more than a week already. Fortunately I could get some sleep last night and felt rested. The doctor whom I regularly visit once in two months said that I am having symptoms of depression since my appetite is also decreasing and I have lost some weight too. There could be a combination of factors contributing to this problem, some known and unknown. But I am trying to get out of it with the help of my family who has been the source of my strength. I am not going to allow negative thoughts to prevail which is detrimental to my health. I pray to ALLAH for the strength and Blessings towards the road to recovery. InshaAllah I'll be able to back to good health.
