An invaluable lesson i wasn't home for about 2 days? I was involved in my late uncle's funeral. He died of cancer at the age of 44 two days ago(02/03/06). Still young, but well, death knows no boundaries.

This is the first time i get the experience of being beside a dying person. Theres nothing much i can do other than lead him in saying the testimony of faith(Dua kalimah syahadah). Its really a good lesson for me. One day, all of us are going to face the same thing.
Its just a matter of time.
I also got the chance to witness them cleaning the corpse. And also assisted the Imam to don the corpse in white cloths(kain kafan). At that time, nothing else matters. You can have a 100 pair of suits made of silk, but when you die, all you wear is just a white cloth made of cotton, stripped of from all the luxuries of life.

The Prophet once said: "When anyone of Bani Adam dies, you will bring nothing except for these three things: All of your good actions, useful knowledge that you have acquired and prayers from your filial children. All of the things you possess will be left behind."

All of us, for sure must have heard this hadis. But it will just slip of our mind within the next minute. But i guess nothing beats what the eyes have seen. I guess this is the most invaluable lesson ever.

Rest In peace Mohamed Yunus bin Ahmad.
May your soul be placed together with the Prophets and all the Syuhada.
Al Fatihah

On a lighter note, I got into Innova JC. There are quite alot of students from EVGS enrolling at Innova.Have to report at 07 30 hrs on Monday. And to my friends who aren't posted to the schools that they opted as their first choice, try to go for the DAE. And if it is still unsuccessful, just remember that there is a silver lining behind every cloud aight.

Till we meet again,

Respect till infinity
