Al-Fatihah: Abang

Every 3 November marks the anniversary of Abang's passing. 

Once annually, we would gather at 11 am  at his Pusara to clean, pull out random weeds, plant a new potted plant, place some fresh flowers after giving our Salam and reading him Al-Fatihah. We would also say some supplications at the end of the individual prayer.

We would then sometimes fill the awkward silence with nervous chatter, updates and sweet memories of him. That covers our tears and heartache, as we try not to cry at Pusara.

Today was no different. We did what we do annually. Thank you for holding us together in unity even after leaving us. We all love you still.

Al-Fatihah, Abang. May Allah swt place you amongst the best of His Believers in Jannah, Amin.
