The family of former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will hold a reading of the Yassin, "doa selamat" and "solat hajat" (special prayer for a wish) following his successful second coronary bypass operation on Tuesday.
Through a statement issued in Kuala Lumpur on Sept 6, Dr Mahathir's family is inviting Muslims to join the session at the Federal Territory Mosque in Jalan Duta here, beginning with maghrib prayer and ending with isya' prayer.
Asked on the latest development, Dr Mahathir's daughter Datin Paduka Marina said he was in stable condition since this morning.
"What makes us even happier is that he is able to eat some food although in liquid form," she said when met at the lobby of the National Heart Institute in Jalan Tun Razak here tonight (Sept 6).
Meanwhile, the doctors and nurses are keeping a close watch on Dr Mahathir although he has been put on a liquid diet.
Asked whether the public could visit Dr Mahathir, Marina said for now only close family families were allowed to do so.
Dr Mahathir had his first bypass operation on Jan 24, 1989.
