Raya Pertama Tanpa Ayah

Sudah hampir dua bulan ayahanda tersayang saya, Allahyarham A. Karim Omar kembali ke rahmatullah dan Hari Raya Aidiladha tahun ini merupakan Hari Raya pertama bagi saya tanpa ayah. Sangat sedih dan pilu rasanya terutama di pagi Raya, namun Allah S.W.T. lebih sayangkan ayah.

Terasa amat ‘kosong’ apabila ayah tiada semasa solat Raya, namun Alhamdlulillah walaupun sangat berat, saya cuba kuatkan hati untuk menghadapinya. Sejak kecil setiap pagi Raya, saya akan mengikut ayah menunaikan ibadah solat sunat Raya di masjid. Lazimnya setelah saya siap memakai baju Melayu, ayah akan membantu saya untuk memakai kain samping sambil mengusik saya. Tetapi pada tahun ini, tiada lagi ayah untuk menolong saya dan tiada lagi usikan ayah.

Namun saya bersyukur kerana saya masih ada ibu dan kakak-kakak yang amat menyayangi saya. Merekalah yang menolong saya memakai kain samping walaupun ibu dan kakak-kakak tidaklah begitu mahir dalam cara pemakaian kain samping. Namun mereka telah bersungguh-sungguh menolong saya memakai kain samping serapi yang boleh.

Mungkin kerana ini adalah Hari Raya yang pertama tanpa ayah, maka saya amat terasa kehilangan dan kekosongan. Walaupun kini tiada lagi ayah yang akan melindungi saya tetapi saya bersyukur kepada Allah S.W.T. kerana saya masih ada ibu dan kakak-kakak dan juga tempat untuk berlindung. Saya mendoakan agar roh Allahyarham dicucuri rahmat Allah S.W.T. sentiasa dan diletakkan di kalangan roh-roh orang yang beriman.

  1. The moment he left, I stumbled upon.
    He is not sent for this ummah forever…
    Fahmi, HE IS NOT SENT FOR THIS UMMAH FOREVER!
    I tell you this, I cried when he left even though he doesn’t even know who I am.
    Allah wanted him to rest after the adventurous life he lived.
    I only met him once, in Majlis Ittihad Ummah’s event at Sri Petaling Hotel. Hearing his thoughts and studies for the first and the last time. He inspired me.
    And today I am doing something. Even though it is not that significant, but at least I’ll keep on doing something just because I have to.
    His life inspired me, and his death knocking me off to start to do something.
    Now, I see him in you. I pray to Allah. Hopefully, you can continue his work, and Allah eases you in every challenge you face. And I hope you know, that starts from today, I will be following all of your writing.

    1. Dear, Abang Fahmi,
      Alhamdulillah. Thank you for your kind words. I’m very proud of my father and alhamdulillah it is a blessing to know that my father had touch the hearts of so many people. He worked very, very hard especially during the past few years and was seldom at home. Please pray for me and for my future. Things are are hard and not the same for us without my father. I’m happy that Aband Fahmi like my work, please support my writing and please share my blog so that I can reach more people. May Allah guide and bless all of us. Aamiin.
