Takziah buat Hafifi


My friend Hafifi Hafidz, the former Harian Metro editor, is tested yet again by the Almighty.
A few years ago, he was diagnosed with cancer. He beat the cancer. Yesterday Hafifi lost his 7-year old boy to a heart ailment.
After the burial in Shah Alam this morning, I could offer only a hug. I could not utter a word of comfort. There is none.

Innalillah & Alfatihah.

My mother is a two-time cancer survivor, and amid all the pain she said she would always keep holding on because of her children. To have lost a child to something you know how hard is... such grief is unimaginable. My deepest condolences.

My deepest condolences to Mr. Hafifi & family.

Know that his son has gone to somewhere better. Somewhere beyond the unholiness of the world we live in.

Do not cry, Mr. Hafifi. I'm sure your son wouldn't have wanted that.

Al-Fatihah.

Thanks for the info bro. I would not have known as I've not met Hafifi since we left the company. My sincere condolences to Hafifi and his family.

Condolences.

A line from Lord of the Rings rings true.

A father should not have to bury his son.

Some go old
Some go young
It is part of life
The beginning and the end

Across the untapped boundary
Our minds can imagine
The smiling angels running around
Life must be bliss

Only we can’t take it
Life can’t be gone
When the children are young
They haven’t tested yet
The strength of their convictions

I say we never know
In the children’s minds
We think they are angels
Bringing cheers and smile

God knows why
He brings them home
Testing our faith our believe
Crying to console our souls
It is God we must know

Test of faith
Abundance in our minds
Like Jacob one mustn’t give up hope
For the rewards will arrive
Stay on it enjoy our blessing

To Hafifi
May Allah continues to guide
Giving you strength to live
For the journey is never ending
May He continues to bless
You and your family

I konow this Dato Hafifi and Datin. They share a lot of their experiences in cambacting cancer with others. He helps many other cancer victims, some recovered.

It is very sad to know that such a good man has lost someone he really loves. Anyway Allah knows better that anyone of us here.

Semoga dato hafifi dan keluarga bersabar dan redha dengan apa jua ujiannya. Al-Fatehah

Shamsul Yunos said...

They say god sends down his test only to those who can bear it,

Datuk Hafifi is a stronger person than many of us to have made it through one and be sent another one.

I hope his family will rally round and support each other...

Al Fatehah, salam takziah buat Hafifi serta keluarga.

Both my parents died same year just 5months apart. I was choked with sadness for months.

And just about to get over them, 2years later my husband died at a very young age, I was totally dazed.

Turn to the Quran, it will greatly help.

Dear Rocky

Dear Hafifi,

I know it's never easy to bury one's child,and i always ask the Almighty that I m never tested that way, may God give you the strenth brother and may u find peace within yourself

umar said...

setiap yang bernyawa akan mati. Manusia yang bijak adalah yang sentiasa memperingati maut dan buat persediaan untuk menghadapi maut dengan amal yang baik.Itulah islam hakiki. janganlah kita yang hidup sibuk buat hal nak jatuhkan orang lain. Maut itu dekat dengan kita.Hadis nabi beritahu malaikat maut ziarahi kita setiap hari 70 kali. So siapalah kita ?

Kak Jayn said...

Takziah. Allah mengambilnya untuk memberikannya kehidupan yang lebih baik iaitu Syurga. Saya dapat merasakan kehilangan saudara, dan saya pasti ia tak akan hilang sampai bila-bila tapi percayalah, time would heals the paim- not to forget, but to make it bearable.

salam takziah buat datuk hafifi. semoga datuk tabah mengharungi dugaan ini

Aishah Ali said...

"When I am in Syurga will they know my shirt size? And the colour pencils that I like?" The late, young Mohd Hafizuddin, had asked his mother in hospital.
When his mother, Datin Azlin, related this to us, her women friends, at the mosque before the burial, there was not a dry eye.
Indeed he is in a better place, Alin and Hafifi.
Al Fatehah.

Dato Fifi,

Dato seorang yang amat yakin dengan diri dan kuat. Itu telah membawa Dato mengharungi banyak dugaan di BH dan di luar BH. Kenapa ia berlaku, itu adalah kehendak Tuhan. Ya ini semua adalah ujian Tuhan dan manusia mendapat ujian ini dengan cara yg berbeza-beza.

Takziah dan terus kuat dan sentiasa akui keesaannya.

Sebak rasanya as I read Rocky's postings. Bergenang airmata knowing how Kak Lin and Abg Fifi would have felt.. words simply cant describe the lost. Semoga both of you, the girls and rest of the family tabah.

Takziah from all of us in Doha.

To Datuk and Datin,
Salam takziah daripada saya dan keluarga. Memang ujian datang dan pergi amat menguji kita. Saya tahu Datuk dan Datin orang yang tabah dan pemergian Hafizudin semakin menjadikan anda sekeluarga semakin rapat.

Yes, teringat cerita Datin petang itu tentang soalan arwah mengenai saiz bajunya, saiz kasutnya dan tentang warna pensil kegemarannya. Dan pada malam sebelum pemergian arwah, rakan-rakan di ibupejabat berkongsi junk food yang Datuk bawa ke pejabat dan Datuk `sorok; daripada arwah...

Ternyata Allah lebih menyayanginya dan saya akan ingat tarikh pemergian arwah - dua minggu selepas pemergian emak saya...

Al-Fatihah saya untuk semua yang telah pergi.

Takziah. Bersabar. Ini dugaan yang besar dan berat.
