My Dearest Grandmother Passed Away


Last Wednesday, at about 9:30 pm, my dad was told that his mother collapsed in her house in Kuala Terengganu. At that moment, dad and his big brother Ami Ma was at Pak Cik Amin’s house attending their weekly hadith class.

Dad called his good friend Pak Ghani who immediately rushed from his house in Kuala Ibai to my grandmother’s house in Jalan Pusara. It was Pak Ghani who took my grandmother to the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital in his car.

My grandmother was then admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). We immediately packed our bags and headed for Kuala Terengganu at about 1 a.m. It was raining quite heavily along the way and it took us more than 7 hours to reach Kuala Terengganu.

We visited my grandmother at the hospital everyday. She was in a coma; we read to her the surah Yasin and tried to talked to her. She passed away at 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon. She was in a coma until the end of her life. She was laid to rest at the Tanah Perkuburan Sheikh Ibrahim, Kuala Terengganu after Asar on the same day.

My grandmother was a very wonderful lady and we love her very much. May Allah bless her soul.

I would like to thank Pak Ghani for taking the trouble to send my grandmother to the hospital. May Allah bless him for his generosity.
