My elder sister called, father was well after 4 days in ward. But today he fell down, worsen his condition. She asked my opinion about some signs, black stool, edema, and lethargy. I was telling her, let him rest well, it might be due to heart problem. I was studying at library at that time, with my roommate, sharifah.

My brother called me; “I might go back tonight, wanna come with me?” he’s at Balok, Kuantan, living with his wife and a little son. “I’m intending too, but I have my end block exam tomorrow. Alright, see how I can handle this.” I replied.

“sha, my father’s condition is worsening. Should I go back?” my mind thinking fast, arrhythmic mind. Half-hearted. Blank.

I called my mother’s phone no, but my brother in law replied “father has passed away. About 10 minutes ago...mother beside him, kak dah (eldest sister) get his last words too…insyaAllah everything is fine, do pray for him…”
“ohh..alhamdulilllah..i’m going back tonight with keru (my brother)”… i felt my voice vibrating, my mouth dehydrating with no feeling.

Classmates, seniors, friends were coming non- stop, soothing me. Consoling me. Alhamdulillah. Thank you , friends. That maghrib, we perform jenazah ghaib prayer. After informed my dean, I went back. 6 hours journey to Kelantan.

I stepped into house. I saw most of my family members already in. At the corner of living room, I saw father. Sleeping well, resting in peace… Al-Fatihah
