A lot of people are putting their lives on the line daily, all around the world, for all kinds of reasons.
Today, right now, the Prof puts his life under the surgeon’s knife at the IJN by undergoing the coronary arterial by-pass graft surgery for his acute triple arterial blockage.
He was in good spirit when I saw him yesterday, as always. The Prof is not the kind that likes to wear his heart on his sleeve. But if one looked close enough, one could surely see.
When he gets through this, the post-operation is certainly no honeymoon for him. He would have to rest for at least 6 months, which means that he won’t be able to work.
We may hold difference of opinion, we may have different political views, and we agree to disagree. But we are still old friends.
May Allah bless him with the inner strength that he surely needs, now more than ever.
