I read the message twice just to confirm was it him or his father. But for sure that it was him. Millions of question came into my mind. Why, how or where? The why is more prominent question but still there's not much answer to it.
So when I came into the office everyone were talking about him - being such an active guy who plays takraw and volleyball and at his age of mid-thirties, I still can't believe that he is gone to meet the creator. We were informed that he died in his sleep.
- Al Fatihah my good friend
I had known him for many years now. When I was in Corporate Planning, I dealt a lot with him, who use to work in the R&D. He would once a while come to my office to get information for us or I would summon him for R&D reports. Sometimes he would just dropped by for a chit chat when I'm free.
The last time I remember dealing with him on the unpaid invoices to the service provider - who got to pay what! But we managed to sort it out. Later I met with him again in his office while I was on my way to a meeting.
Reminiscing back, actually I hard time remembering his name. When I first know him through the phone, I mispronounced his name. From Mazariwan to Marizawan. Or I sometimes I called him Maraziwan. Such a peculiar and hard name to pronounce. A tongue twister name. It took me quite a while to pronounce his name right.
Mazariwan that I know is a kind person and always respect me as an elder. He is somebody that you would want to have fond memory of, someone who you can easily to deal with, someone who would always put up a smile when you bum into him.
Probably that is why the creator takes him. As I have heard before "Allah will take the good guys first". (Not that we are the bad guys who are still alive?)
Al Fatihah Mazariwan. May Allah place you amongst the place of the faithful good soul. Amin.
