Allahyarham Shahrol Nizam Yusoff II












Alhamdulillah we had a simple tahlil for Shahrol tonight. Everyone had started leaving around 10+ but Izrin, Izzat and Bean stayed behind to help me clean the place.

There were those who were his acquaintance and close friends before he left us, there were those who had difficulty remembering which one was Shahrol. I showed them videos and photos to remind everyone - and usually the common response was "laaa budak ni memang baik dulu".

I hope whatever small ibadah that we do will lessen his burden a bit. Also to make sure those who were close to him remember him well.

I was also touched by the generosity and compassion shown by many of my batchmates - after all, only Wong, Allen, myself and Pejal whom can be considered close to Shahrol, as we always pray and drink together. But the outpouring of contribution as well as messages of condolence gave me comfort that we all have grown up - that it is not about someone you know or your batchmates, it is about a fellow Muslim brother and his soon to be 4 anak yatim and his grieving widow.

I take comfort that when my time comes and these fellas are around, Insya Allah they will arrange the necessary and will remember me well.

Thanks to all who came tonight, and those who sent messages and wanted to come but couldn't. May in our death, we too be remembered and blessed with friends who care and pray for us.
