Al-Fatihah for Tan Sri A Samad Ismail...

A great writer, nationalist, journalist, political activist, father and a great man. He died 17:58 yesterday. Been reading his daughters blog Nuraina and Maria for ages. Followed Nuraina's postings about Pak Samad's health since he was admitted. Yesterday was a clear sign he was losing the battle. I never have the chance to talk or hear him talk but I do grow up reading his commentaries in the newspapers. Only known he was the founder of Singapore's People Action Party (PAP) about a year ago... buta sejarah tul aku ni.

Our nation has lost a great man. May Allah bless his soul for all the kind things he has done for the country.
