Only 48 hours ago, I still had all four grandparents.
Al-Fatihah for my Tok, Rusmah bt Mohammad who passed away at 9:25pm on 7 October 2015. She had a kind soul — she sew my baju kurungs and cooked good food. She taught the kampung kids how to read the Qur’an. The last thing she said to me, two weeks ago, through a phone call, was to ‘belajar elok-elok’. Her burial was held at 11am yesterday, unfortunately, clashing with my Translation final. My mother and sister made it to the cemetery just in time, all the way from Japan.
Thank you to all who made prayers, specifically my housemates who read Yaasin for her.
To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.
