Alhamdulilah I am blessed with my mother still alive compared to my peers(late50's and early 60's)who had lost their mothers.A friend told me that I am lucky to have a mother who du'a for me everyday.Once our mothers pass away,that special du'a will cease..Thank you ,Allah.
My mother prefers to live in her kampung for the last seven decades.And I live more than 500km away in Selangor.Since a few years back,I made a routine to be with my mother for a few days in a month.During these few days,I will also ziarah my relatives and friends and also cemeteries where close members of my family were buried.When I was a kid,my late father always took me to the cemetery every Friday.Today,I will visit his grave,insyaAllah.
May I suggest to my fellow muslims and muslimahs to inculcate the culture of ziarah in our family.
