Al-Fatehah: Ibrahim Hussein


Very early this morning, I received a text message from my friend, Akramsyah and another one later from Salahuddin, about the passing of one of Malaysia's finest artists - Datuk Ibrahim Hussein.

To me, Allahyarham tiada banding dan tanding.

Affectionately known as Ib, he died of a heart attack at the Pantai Medical Centre early this morning. He was 72. He
leaves behind a wife, Sim Hussein, and daughter Alia.

He was founder of the Ibrahim Hussein Museum and Cultural Foundation in Langkawi.

He was buried at the Bukit Kiara Muslim Cemetery. Al Fatehah.

ALFATEHA

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ (١)
Dengan nama Allah, Yang Maha Pemurah, lagi Maha Mengasihani

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful (1)

ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ (٢)

Segala puji tertentu bagi Allah, Tuhan yang memelihara dan mentadbirkan sekalian alam

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds (2

ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ (٣)
Yang Maha Pemurah, lagi Maha Mengasihani.

, The Beneficent, the Merciful (3)

مَـٰلِكِ يَوۡمِ ٱلدِّينِ (٤)
Yang Menguasai pemerintahan hari Pembalasan (hari Akhirat)

. Owner of the Day of Judgment, (4)

إِيَّاكَ نَعۡبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسۡتَعِينُ (٥)
Engkaulah sahaja yang kami sembah, dan kepada Engkaulah sahaja kami memohon pertolongan

Thee (alone) we worship;(5)

ٱهۡدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٲطَ ٱلۡمُسۡتَقِيمَ (٦)
Tunjukilah kami jalan yang lurus

Show us the straight path, (6)

صِرَٲطَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ غَيۡرِ ٱلۡمَغۡضُوبِ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا ٱلضَّآلِّينَ (٧)
Iaitu jalan orang yang Engkau telah kurniakan nikmat kepada mereka, bukan jalan orang yang Engkau telah murkai, dan bukan pula jalan orang yang sesat

The path of those whom Thou hast favoured. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (7)
