بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيم

Ya Allah!Limpahkanlah rahmat yang penuh dan kesejahteraan yang sempurna ke atas penghulu kami Nabi Muhammad SAW yang terungkai dengannya oleh simpulan dan terhapus dengannya oleh segala kesusahan dan diselesai dengannya dengan segala hajat dan dicapai dengannya segala kegemaran dan mudah-mudahan cantik kesudahan serta diharapkan turun hujan dengan berkat wajahnya yang mulia.Dan juga di atas keluarganya dan sahabat-sahabatnya pada setiap detik dan nafas dengan bilangan setiap yang maklum bagiMu.

Doctor and Life

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called for an urgent surgery. He answered the call as soon as possible, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy's father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him,the dad yelled, "Why did you take all this time to come? Dont you know that my son's life is in danger? Dont you have the sense of responsibility??"

The doctor smiled and said, "I am sorry. I wasnt in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call. And now, I wish you calm down for that I can do my work."

"Calm down?! What if you son was in the room right now, would you calm down? If your son dies now what will you do??" said the father angrily.
The doctor smiled again and replied, "I will say what Allah said in His Holy Book [Who, when disaster strikes them,say, "Indeed we belong to Allah and indeed to Him we will return."]. Does the believer have anything but this? Doctor cannot prolong lives. Go and make do'a for your son, we will  do our best inshaAllah".

"Giving advises when we are not concerned is so easy", murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy. "Alhamdulillah,your son is saved!" And without waiting the father's reply he carried on his way running. "If you have any question, ask the nurse!!"

"Why is he so arrogant? He couldnt wait some minutes for that I ask about my son's condition", commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered with tears coming down her face. "His son died yesterday in a road accident. He was in the burial when we called him for your son's surgery. And now that he saved your son's life, he left running to finish his son's burial...."


What say u, if you are in their places? Either as the doctor or the father. Yes we would be very emotional when it came to life and death parts, especially when involved our loved ones. No doubt. I, myself had been in denial phase when I first received the news that my dad had left me forever and on his way up to meet The Creator. Of course the family couldnt accept it initially but believe me, when we made a resolute return to Allah, then we should be clear that nothing happens in His Dominion except that which He willed, including death.

Doctor is not God, yet he is there to help the nature in healing process. Anything that happen after that, only God who knows. He is also a human,trying to fix up a human.Trying hard, he never can go beyond that because the nature of the job itself; console always, to heal often, to cure sometimes but to cut the disease off, only God who can do it!

Alhamdulillah after being posted in 3 fields [Medical/Psychiatry/Neurosciences] within this tough 3 months ++, I felt closer to Him.I had seen few moments of patients dying in front of me. They were struggling by themselves with doctors were trying their best to save a life and family arounds reciting Yaasin. There were also patients who suffering from end stage renal failure which require them to have regular hemodyalisis every week, heart problems which they couldnt able to even sleep in flat position, brain cancer patients who waiting for surgery to be done on them. This make me thanked Him for the all the 'nikmat' given.The ability to see clearly, hear normally, walk properly, and even fell the heart beating in normal rhythm, all these make us the perfect creations by Allah SWT. Did you ever think of it?

One more,never judge anyone because you never know how their life is and what they are going through!
