An invitation from Mohd. Faksi

I have not been posting anything since my last about the passing away of a dear friend, Yakob. Recently I attended a Tahlil for OP Shuhud who passed away in London due to cancer too. I received the short message from OP Azudin who forwarded the message which he received from a close family member of Allahyarham Shuhud.

When the time comes, one has to answer the call not a second too soon or a second too late. It reminds me how short life can be and what have I prepared for my turn. Sometimes we forget that we too could be next. That is why we should always be reminded of our time.

I had been quite busy for the past several weeks in fetching my father from Seremban for his appointment with the specialist hospital in Ampang Puteri. This weekend I shall be going again to Seremban. On saturday night there is also a wedding function of my childhood friend's daughter at the Majlis Perbandaran Seremban Hall smack in the centre of town. So I hope to see many friends and relatives whom I have not met for quite sometime. The invitation is actually from my second cousin whom I called Riduan, not knowing his real name until I saw the card. His real name is Mohamad Faksi bin Sheikh Husin.If not for the card I thought his name is Riduan all along.

The Passing Away of the Good Samaritan

On Sunday 03 January 2010 I received the sad news that Yakob Scholer had passed away at 1542 hrs local Malaysian time and approximately 0842 hrs in Germany. Innalillahi Wainnailaihi Rojiun.

By sheer coincidence an article on him appeared in the Starmag of the daily newspaper, The Sunday Star on page 7 of the Starmag. It was something like an obituary on him.

Al- Fatehah and May ALLAH S.W.T. place his soul amongst the pious.
