Verily, everyone shall taste death. On January 11th, three UiTM Dungun students were drowned while swimming in the sea off Teluk Bidara beach. One of them is my student for subject Network Analysis 2. To be honest, I am still in shock. Though I had only taught him last week in 2 slots, (actually I barely taught him, I had just done introduction), surprisingly I remember him. He was among the ones who took the effort to respond to my remarks and questions even though I could tell that they are bored. When I feel that the students seem lost in their thoughts, I try to bring their attention back by going to him first, because I know he would respond, politely.
Indeed his time has arrived. Our times will come too. Just a few days ago, I prayed to Allah to give me strength and not to focus so much of the worldly things. (Since I've been so busy adjusting to this new environment lately). Allah has certainly answered my prayer.
"Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?" Surah Ar-Rahman: Verse 13
Al-Fatihah to MUHAMMAD 'ISMAT SYAFIQ BIN ZAINUDIN. May Allah S.W.T forgive all his sins and accept his good deeds. May him rest in peace insya Allah. Al-Fatihah to his friends as well: MOHD NASRI MOHD NASIR and NAZIRUL SYAZWAN SHAMSUDIN.
