Hatinya baik (She had a wonderful heart) –Part 3 - Al Fatihah

Although I have reported several departures of people, this is the third in my special series ( Hatinya baik ). On 2nd November Dato’ Ahmad Badri Basir passed away. He was a very close family friend of great many years, especially during our years together in Jesselton ( now Kota Kinabalu) in mid 65’s. He had his way of showing his appreciation for the work I was doing related to Almanar. His gift of a set of 150 copies of reference book for English grammar was one of the ways. Over the years, since his demise, children at Almanar remember him with Al Fatihah before opening the books, which is on a daily basis. His wife , Datin Rohani, took over her husband’s role. Sadly, she passed away following an operation on 15th September. The couple was so dear to us and both had Almanar at heart. For that Almanar blog pays tribute to her. Now she will join her husband to be remembered by us at Almanar. Semoga Tuhan cucuri rahmat keatas roh suami isteri yang intimewa ini. Takziah kepada anak cucu mereka yang berjaya.

Berkhidmat Kerana Tuhan untuk kemanusiaan

Salam Pakcik,

Orang yang baik akan sentiasa berada diingatan kita. Walau pun mereka telah tiada lagi. Seperti ungkapan pantun lama.

Pulau Pandan jauh ke tengah
Gunung Daik bercabang tiga
Hancur badan di kandong tanah
Budi yang baik dikenang juga

Pakmail,

Pantun lama memberi maana yang dalam. Saya bukan ahli pantun tetapi sekadar dapat merasai dalamnya apa yang disampaikan dalam pantun lama Melayu.

Sewaktu berugas dalam dan diatas kapal laut tentu banyak masa menikmati kcantikan alam disekeliling - dan berpantun membayangkan kebesaran Tuhan.

Terasa juga sebak diada bila orang yang kita sayang meniggal kan kita - penentuanNYA.

Marina Monroe,

Puan lebih memahami yang kita sekadar merancang sahaja, bukan membuat penentuan. Terima kasih

Mudah-mudahan Allah mencucuri rahmat ke atas roh Dato' Ahmad Badri dan Datin Rohani. Yang mendahului kita seperti mereka, meninggalkan nama baik dan jasa, wajarlah dikenang dan didoakan. Al-Fatihah untuk arwah berdua.

Hank,

Nampaknya Birdhouse itu semakin berjaya. Jangan lupa nak mulakan sketches tu.

Al-Manar said...

Temuk,

Begitulah satu satu ciri hidup yang kita tak dapat tentukan. Yang munkin ialah berbuat apa saja kebaikan semasa ada daya.
Sudah sempurna puasa enam? Selamat berayalah sekali lagi, sdr.

Wan Sharif said...

Semuga Maghfirah dan redha Allah di rahmatkan Allah keatas mereka berdua.

Assalamualaikum Pakcik. Semoga Allah ampuni segala dosa mereka dan redhai roh mereka. Dan semoga Allah permudahkan segala usaha kita dan berkati hidup kita dengan kebaikan dunia dan akhirat.

Asamkeping,

Thank you. Without realising it I left three comments on the same posting - getting very forgetful!

Dear Pak Cik,
I had just posted 'Pilgrimage' at my 'birdhouse' I made some mistakes in the photo sequence and deleted everything. I took a breather and came back again. But unfortunately force of habit had me click on my 'Rainbow' and I was 50% through when I realised the mistake. The 'Pilgrimage' heading is still registered at 'birdhouse' but there's nothing there.
I hope you can access my 'Rainbow'.

The durians fall
With a heavy thud
And presents
The greatest
gift of all

Al-fatihah.

Aishah,

You are truly mysterious to Pakcik, appearing and disappearing from your blog for weeks on end. Life is full of mystery, the marvel of the Great Creator - and you are one.

Thank you for joining me in praying for the departed, including your loved ones who have left.

Hank,

I have encountered no difficulty.
