The sign of the passing

Do you know when someone is about to receive bad news.. e.g. when something important is going to turn out bad, or maybe something bad going to fall upon your dear ones...or... about to pass away... then you'll start to receive these signs..?

... like accidentally knock down a glass and shatter...
or trip over something...
or maybe dream of your loved ones laughing.. or naked while laughing...
or seeing a black cat/unusual thing came visiting...

One of them happened to me yesterday morning.

I was in the kitchen grabbing breakfast when i accidentally tripped over the kitchen mat.

"Haa! You tripped over the mat. Bad sign" said my sis.

But I thought I was just being clumsy.
So I ignored and continued to rush to the office.

Then an sms came to me in the afternoon informing me about the Japan flight cancellation.

Of course, I was disappointed and came to realise, hrmm.. maybe THAT was the bad sign.

I was wrong.

At about 5am this morning, Paksu called.

Tok Wan had passed away.


Everything went chaos.

We were calling here and calling there.. smsing here and there, making sure every important family member is informed.

It was really heartbreaking.

It hurt so much more to see mama, wan and paksu's condition.

Paksu informed us how he missed aruah Tok wan by only less then 10 minutes.
About more or less 20 minutes earlier, right after he got back from the fish market at 3am+, he saw aruah Tok Wan was still breathing in his sleep.
Few minutes later, he checked again.
Everything was still alright.
After almost 10 minutes later, he felt rather anxious and went to check again for the third time.
At that moment of time, aruah Tok Wan had gone back to Rahmatullah.


3 days ago, there was a stranger black cat came visiting and playing in front of their house.
The next day it went inside aruah Tok Wan's room, which, Paksu and Wan had bad feelings about it (plus, it had never happened before) they shooed the black cat away. (nicely done of course).
Yesterday, they saw the cat leaving the room.
You get the gist.

In other words, signs and warnings are conveyed in different and many innocent ways for us to be prepared. It's up to us to be alert and be able to spot the right message.

Many offered condolences to the family.

Wan and aruah Tokwan's friends.
My Aunts' friends and colleagues.

I was quiet surprised that the Lady Minister and other political people actually came to Wan's house to read the yassin together.
We were even shocked when the Chief Minister himself came to express his condolences to Wan at the Masjid. @_@
Word traveled REALLY fast.

In respect to aruah Tokwan and also since it is encouraged to bury the deceased as soon as possible after death, we couldn't wait for the rest of the family to arrive from Semenanjung. Hence, after washing and completion of Solat Jenazah, aruah Tokwan was brought to Tanah Perkuburan near Masjid Jamek for burial.

Alhamdulillah, everything is done before the Zohor prayer.

Now that all 7 siblings (except 2) are gathered, a Kenduri will be held after Isyak later.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.

Love you, and miss you Tok Wan.
