Al Fatihah To Capt Ahmad Yusof

Al Fatihah

I was alerted by Syed Akbar's SMS this morning informing our fellow blogger, Capt Ahmad Yusof of Ancient Mariner had passed away this morning.

Upon checking with Tony Yew, who lives near his place, he confirmed it from the guard of his Kondo Tiara Kelana, Jalan SS 7/19 PJ. The body was brought to a Mosque and I am frantically trying to locate the Mosque.

His mother had just passed away last Tuesday. The last time I spoke to him was when he called back at night to express thank for my SMS condolence.

Tony called later to inform the body was already bath and prayed at the Kelana Jaya Mosque and it is already on its way to Seremban for burial.

I am truly shocked and surprised. We regularly meet for MRT and often discuss various current issues. He is truly a respectable elder person we enjoy having around.

Inna lillahi wainna hi rojiun.
God Giveth and God Taketh Away.

Bon Voyage My Captain.

Al-Fatihah. Kami sama-sama muncul dalam Perspektif Kita (Astro Awani). Allahyarham adalah seorang yang sangat disenangi.

May allah bless him. We will surely miss him and our usual banter at MRT. It came as a shock. It feels more than losing a dear friend. He epitomises the voice of reason. Bon voyage Captain

Bro, this is from Aishah (Capt's daughter). She left it on my blog:

"Dear All,
On behalf of my family, thank you for your kind words and wishes. We’re not sure how to contact all his friends, so hope this will reach some, if not most.
There will be a Tahlil tonight after Isyak prayers at Surau An Nai’mah next to our residence at Tiara Kelana Condo in SS 7 Kelana Jaya. It would mean a lot to us if you could attend.
Thank you.
Aisyah Yusof (Captain’s daughter)"
