In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Compassionate
I never knew him personally. The first time I knew him was when someone posted a video of him : here
He was diagnosed with 'Hodgkins Lymphoma'/blood cancer back in 2008 when he was a final year Medic student yet successfully finished his studies, mashaAllah!
Last night I saw a status saying he was admitted to Ampang's ICU and only to find that this morning, he's no longer in this temporary world
"Every soul will taste death. Then to Us will you be returned". [Al-Ankabut: 57]
[To the righteous it will be said], "O reassured soul, Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him], And enter among My [righteous] servants And enter My Paradise." [Al-Fajr: 27-30]
Mas Afzal, in a way, you have become one of my inspiration.
May Allah reward you with all His blessings and place you among the mukiminin. May Allah bestow His Mercy and ease your path to eternal happiness.
"whenever we are inflicted with hardship, with tribulations, always believe in Allah s.w.t. Always believe that this is an opportunity for us to be closer to Allah s.w.t. Always believe that whenever we are inflicted with an illness, it is an opportunity to experience, to clear our sins, to clean ourselves from our sins, with the hope that eventually, when we are clean, we can meet Allah in the purest of state, inshaAllah" [Mas Afzal]
