Life and death and date 11.11.11

It will never come again in our lifetime.
The date 11.11.11.

While there are hundred of thousands of couples tying nuptial to commemorate this date and parents to be chose the date for delivery via C-sec, and considering 'lucky' those to be born naturally on this date, there'd also be those who leave us behind upon the calling of their creator.

As for yours truly the date means nothing but just another day and date.
But today it became a date.
To commemorate a couple of things besides the eid celebration, me and SO decided to do some thanks giving by inviting friends among the small Malaysian community here. It was supposed to be two days earlier but due to other commitment, we chose after Friday prayer to have it at our house.

Among those invited was someone who happened to be the first guest to arrive and later to our shocking disbelivement  was informed that he had passed away while playing hockey less than four hours after attending our  fête.

God surely has it written.
All of what happen in our life today and everyday.
Of my intention wanting to do something such as that, where it is something very uncommon of me (the first I did one was nearly five years ago after arriving here).
And of the coincidental day chosen.
Of the person who had decided to attend although we weren't that close, of him and the family being the first to show and we have individual time to mingle at least, and everything that comes after that.

To his family and especially his beloved wife, please take all this with strong heart and will.
We were born, and we will go -- one day definetely.
It must be very painful being left at this point of time where the children still needs their father love and attention, but the Almighty knows best and will surely arranged the best for those being left on this earth.

To me, this yet another news that made me recite the greatness of Allah (swt).
He made us alive and in any second, minute or hours he can take us back...sometimes with no indication at all.
How He had give me the health and opportunity to wake up every morning and watching my children grow and celebrating life as a family; I honestly hope I will be given His guidance and be allowed to follow the righteous way. Insyallah.

In the name of Allah(God), the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful;Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all that exists.
The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Master of the Day of Judgment.
You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help
Guide us on the straight path.
The path of those on whom You have bestowed your favor, not of those who have earned Your anger, nor of those who go astray.

May we all be guided. Amin
