Innalillahi Wainna Ilaihi Rajiun
A colleague, Hjh S, passed away this morning. Innalillahi Wainna Ilaihi Rajiun. I was told the news before I reached the door of the work place. I was numb all over. I couldn't believe my ears. Hjh S gave birth to a baby boy who also passed away this morning.
Whenever I walk to my workstation, i have to pass Hjh S's first. Today was no different. Her slippers were still there under her table. Her books, pens, her notes. Everything was there.
She was the person that i always run to whenever I needed that special pen for transparencies - as i always forget mine.
She was a good teacher - I saw a lot of students crying at the canteen area this morning and some even came up to me and begged me to bring them to the funeral.
She was one of the nicest people I've ever met. She never say no whenever we needed her help - no matter how tired or busy she was.
InsyaAllah she passed away as a syahid. Mudahan roh nya di rahmati Allah. Amin.
Everyone, life is short. We can never tell when is our time.
But the question is....
Are we ready?
