Myself today, at the age of 58
Today is my 58th birthday, Alhamdulillah. Amazed at FB for exposing the date, resulting in the pouring of wishes from many corners of the earth - from family members, students, and friends.

The first wish came via sms from Ummu, my youngest daughter, at exactly 0000 hour today, though her bedroom is just beside mine. She has been waiting for that exact moment, I think, as always.

Many thanks to everybody for the wishes, good words, and prayers. I could feel that I am now really a warga emas (gold citizen?). My right knee has been painful while observing terawih prayers. My fasting is also relatively quite a tiring one. But Alhamdulillah, Allah SWT still provide me with an opportunity to serve Him and His religion, the opportunity that I hope would be given till the end, Insha-Allah.
One of the wishes: From my alma mater, the St Cross College, University of Oxford
