Innalillah. Pak Samad has breathed his last. My condolences to Ena and the family of this great man. Although he has been very ill for the last 10 days or so, the weight of the sms from Mariah was heavy to bear. "My dad passed away at 5.58pm".
I had just then left a comment on DSAI's Doa untuk Pak Samad.
May Allah bless his soul. Alfatihah.
p/s Pak Samad's jenazah will be sent to the family's house at 2, Lorong 16/7C, 46350vPetaling Jaya. The kebumi will take place after Friday prayers tomorrow.
