al fatihah - wak min
|arwah wak min & wak mah (passed 6 years ago)|
|arwah wak min... his last few days :( al fatihah..|
i was in a meeting yesterday when i received a phone call from my sister, N3.. and normally if i am in a meeting, i would put the phone on silent or just reject the call... coz at times, her call is for chit chat :P ahaksss.. but then, later my mom called... hmmm so i guess must be something important. trues enough, my uncle passed away... he has been ill for quite some time.. and he is at his gold age. :(
i went to my boss' room immediately after my meeting and rushed to pj for the funeral. we managed to go to the graveyard... and i learned something new yesterday.
- the reason why we pour water on the grave, is so that the soil become packed and close to each other. so that no small animals/insects can go near to the body.
- the reason why we have scented leaves and flowers are so that if there is bad smell coming out of the grave, the scent will overcome other smell.
- should not build some concretes on top of the grave because graveyard is using 'tanah wakaf' and no one owns it. it should be able to be reused for 'jenazah'.
