5 tahun tinggal kat area Ibaraki ni, first time pergi tempat ni、花貫渓谷(Hananuki Keikoku) . Sebelum ni kami mmg tak berjalan sgt pun, kalau jalan2 pun masa pegi program IPIJ. Tapi tahun ni dah tahun terakhir kat Japan ni..so byk lah survey tempat2 yg cantik kat sini..Tempat ni famous dengan jambatan spt dalam gambar bawah ni, yg di kelilingi pokok2 oren merah tu..subhanallah mmg cantik sgt, tapi susah nya nak amik gmbr sbb ramai sgt org..sapa2 nak pegi sini dinasihatkan pegi awal2 pagi supaya dapat amik gmbr dgn tenang kat situ.

Saya nak share dgn kawan2 satu blog Saudara Seislam kita Allahyarham Mas Afzal, yang dah meninggal dunia baru2 ni akibat Kanser Kelenjar. Saya personally tak kenal dia, dapat tahu blog dia pun dr ustaz2 yang mewar2kan tentang berita pemergian dia..”Not The Primrose Path, Allah certainly has His unique ways to show His love” adalah tema blog beliau. Walaupun x kenal personally, tapi lepas baca beberapa entry blog dia, saya boleh agak dia seorang yang macam mana..Seorang Doktor muda, pergi menghadap Ilahi di usia 26 tahun, didiagnos ada ketumbuhan di kelenjar pada hujung 2008, yg mana pada ketika itu beliau di masih belajar Medic di UK, tapi dgn semangat cekal & pergantungan kuat kpd Allah beliau berjaya habiskan study spt org lain. Seorang yang aktif bersama persatuan Islam di UK..Beliau pergi dengan meninggalkan satu “permata” iaitu blog, yang mana boleh dijadikan sumber inspirasi bg orang lain yang lemah semangat bila ditimpa dugaan..Mas Afzal mula berblog selepas
dipastikan ada ketumbuhan ..Saya pun tak tahu mcm mana nak cerita betapa hebat & tabahnya Mas Afzal & ibu beliau, mengharungi dugaan yang maha besar, anda MESTI baca sendiri beberapa entry terakhir blog beliau, serta comment2 sekali..Setiap kali saya ke blog beliau, air mata pasti bergenang, sayunya rasa bila lihar gmbr beliau, bukan sedih, tapi kagum dgn anak muda yang sebegitu, cekal & sedikit pun tak menyatakan penyesalan atas apa yang menimpa beliau, kagum dgn ketabahan Mamanya spt yang diceritakan Afzal sendiri di entri terakhirnya, yang saya rasa kalau ujian yg sama diberi pada saya, saya tak pasti saya akan kuat menghadapinya…
Nota dr mama Afzal yang menceritakan saat2 terakhir bersama anak kesayangannya:
Mas Afzal passed away at 2.24am, 18th December, 2010. His papa, brother Andi, sisters Aiysha n Atiqah,uncle Shahrir n me were with him till he breathed his last. He was intubated and n in an induced coma from about 1pm the day earlier because he was having difficulty breathing n his Blood Pressue was getting very low.
Since he was admitted to the Ampang Hospital on December 2nd, he did not get any good night’s sleep. Now, he can rest and wait for me n all of us to join him.
I thank Allah for letting me borrow him for the last 26 years. I am also thankful that Allah has given me n my family the opportunity to take care of him while he was in hospital.
Many of his friends visited him in hospital n he could recognise them all, even during the times when he was in a confused n sometimes delirious state because of the infection he suffered n the pure oxygen he was given.
He told me to make sure to wake him up if any of his friends came to visit. “I want to acknowlege their presence”, he said. Actually I was surprised he could recognise all his friends who came despite the fact that he sometimes forgot that he was in hospital. At the end of visiting hours, I would ask him about his friends who came and he would describe to me who those friends are, what they were studying, how they met, what activities they have done together n so on. I could see he loved all his friends a lot.
I would always test him to see his state of mind by asking who I am…”Mama”, he would always answer. Afzal did not sleep at all the whole night on Thursday and was either reciting versus from the Quran, performing prayers or doing the zikr thoughout the night.I think he was trying to sort things out in his head n said whatever came to mind n since Quran versus were always close to his heart, those versus were among the things he blurted out. I was tired just looking at him but helpless to do anything, other than hold his hand, massage his back n stood by his side n by the graces of Allah, I did not feel sleepy at all thoughout that night. By morning he was exhausted and all my efforts to make him stop n rest failed. The last hour before he was intubated, I kept testing him to see if he is still able to recognise me. Three times I asked him who I was. He would stop his blabbering and say “Mama”.
N now, part of me is happy for him because he is no longer suffering but a larger part of me is missing him so much. My baby is no longer with me. I am no longer able to take care of him for he is now under a more capable carer.
I will always have the beautiful memories with Afzal, the moments together that only the two of us share…always…..Mama Afzal.
Terharu sgt baca note ni, mengenangkan bagaimana pula nasib diri sendiri ketika menghadapi sakarakul maut nnt, beruntunglah Mas Afzal dipilih Allah meninggal bersama AlQuran & Zikir yg sentiasa membasahi bibir..Al-Fatihah untuk Mas Afzal…smg kita semua juga dipilih Allah untuk bersama golongan para solihin kelak..amin
