17 days ago, the whole nation (worldwide, in fact) were surprised with the news of disappearing flight MH370.In dismay, we received the news with lots of showering speculations, theories, hearsays, yet we kept on praying with faith for a miraculous news to appear and put a dot on the mystery. The hashtag of #prayforMH370 is everywhere, be it in a written hope per se or prayed in a sincere faith; whole Malaysians got united in the same prayer, though the whole ambience of our atmosphere was gravely sombre. Being an unprecedented case, the mystery haunted us for a couple of weeks. To recap just a few, the plot is tainted with several theories from plane being hijacked, visions by Raja Bomoh, World War III theory, to the plane hitting a flock of flying birds.
Until a couple of hours ago, our beloved Prime Minister came with an official statement that we are so eager to know but least expected; the flight ended in the Indian Ocean. Innalillahiwainnailaihirajiun…
Such a heartbroken news we have to scarcely swallow but as we lost them, we cannot afford to lose the lessons. Through advanced technologies humans are inventing, and bragging about how rapt these technologies are, a flying machine is not yet to be found physically with the aids of these man-created technologies. Bitter truth. And through many uncertainties, one certain thing is; Verily Allah is The Almighty, The Most Merciful and The Most Grateful. Not even a tiny move happens but only if He Wills it and it is upon Him that we shall return.
Malaysians, come what it may, don’t let this spread us apart and never let it be a barrier for us to share the same humanity value, because it is too priceless. And with the remembrance of this black tragedy, may we are all awake from our long day dream that distracted us astray from our Creator.
“Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.” [Quran, Al-Baqarah, 156]
Death is certain.
