• Bismillahirrahmanirahim. 

     I was hoping that after the pandemic ends, I wanna go and meet you again. Doesn't matter how far north you'd be, let's meet again one day. Never have I ever imagined the bright smile from a beautiful soul once I knew before, the tight warm hug when we greet one another, was taken away in a matter of seconds. It will only gonna be a plain memory buried inside my deepest hippocampus. 
    I should've at least call you up and ask about your condition when I've heard you were warded due to COVID19, but I'm sorry that I didn't. You've once told me that you believe in me, that you shared your personal stories and struggle and I could only lend my ears and time to listen to it, as we were far apart. It's a good 12 years that we've known each other, and I will never forget all the good deeds you've done. I will never forget how bright your smile was, every time we meet and hang out. Your genuine laughter, your kindness of preparing food for us during Ramadan be it berbuka or sahur, lend us your shoulders and ears when we were feeling down. You invited me and Paan to Melaka for an outing, you fetch me all the way to Penang to spend the day off when I visited the state. 

    Al-Fatihah buatmu Bang Min. I couldn't believe that I'm writing this knowing I could never meet you again, but as it was written, it shall be done. All living things will experience the passing. You are one lucky soul, that all the hearts you touched turn to gold, and we felt love. We felt heard, we felt your sincerity. Be at peace Bang Min, I'll always pray for your safe journey for the promised Jannah. You went ahead on a peaceful Friday, exactly like arwah Akir 11 years ago, and now it's your time to leave us. 

    Be at peace Bang Min, you'll be granted the highest Jannah, cause everyone knows how kind you are, how thoughtful you are, how loving you are, and you've done your level best as His slave in this temporary Dunya. You've done your responsibilities, adhering to take care of both relationships with Allah SWT (Hablum Minallah (حَبْلٍ مِّنْ اللَّهِ)) and with human (Hablum Minannas (حَبْلٍ مِّنَ النَّاسِ)).

    Goodbyes were never easy. But this passing is inevitable. In love, may you find the glorious Jannah. Safe travels until our final journey, ascended. May we meet again. Be at peace Bang Min.

    An obedient son, a loving brother, a dear friend. Close like a family, closer to our heart and prayers. 
    Be at peace Bang Min, إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
