..once you are dead..

..once you are dead, you no longer carry your father's name..henceforth you will be known as the child of your mother..pakmat bin aminah..or, as in the case of my neighbour, Mok Zah, 67, who died this morning of renal failure at 5.30 am..Azizah bt Fatimah..a name she will be known as in all doa's... the name that will be engraved on her tombstone, if at all it is engraved..and the name she will be called upon on Resurrection Day by her Maker..

..and at her burial this evening at 6.30 pm, I sat with the rest of the kampong folks..giving her final respect as a woman who had borne 9 children, with eight surviving her, all of whom did well in life..with the eldest a principal of a secondary school in Bachok and the youngest a teacher in Sabah..

..fare well, Mok Zah binti Fatimah..May you rest in peace..May God forgive your sins..and May He places you in one of His gardens in Eden..

..al-Fatihah..

salam pakmat,
dalam kitab-kitab fekah menyebut, hanya sekali sahaja kita akan di"bin/binti"kan dengan nama ibu, yakni tatkala talqin dibacakan. Selain daripada itu semuanya di"bin"kan kepada ayah... demikian juga ada hadis saheh menyebut semuanya akan dipanggil nama dengan ber"bin"kan ayah di Padang Mahsyar kelak... wallahuaklam.

Dear Pakmat,

Life has its end. Death is the beginning of everything. It has no end.

I reckon it is a coincidence at the moment that I have stumbled upon many entries posted up on different blogs that speak about death, casualty, demise, and also about the deceased.

I wrote mine too.

Al-Fatihah buat arwah. Kita semua menuju ke situ. Mungkin esok mungkin lusa..Kematian ialah sebuah permulaan sebuah kehidupan (di alam yg lain). Sama2lah kita menyibuk diri menyediakan segala bekalan yg diperlukan untuk kehidupan itu.
