And the next moment....

Bismillahhirrahmannirrahim
Assalammualaikum everyone and I am grateful and blessed to still be given another day for repentance...
Subhanallah, for the last few days it has been hectic for me and my family members.
We received a sudden news in regards to one of my cousin's husband collapsed and have to go for an emergency surgery
We thought it was not that serious...
But before I go into detail, let me share with you about this amazing guy..
He is married to my younger cousin, whom I am close with. They have been together for sometime, get engaged and then married. The first time I met him was during the fitting of my cousin wedding dress, my aunt asked me to be there....
We met, sit down.. we talked, joke a lil bit and in my heart is like, hey this guy is cool....
So they got married. We get to meet at times during family gatherings or Hari Raya....
And truth to be told, there are some cousin's spouse that we can click with, there are some that we can't... I mean we can talk, but not so close.... right?
So me and my cousin's plus their spouses whoever that we can click, if we were to meet we became like small kids, joke,make fun and just laugh out loud...
So back to this guy, he is a nice person, warmth, always respect elders and younger, always smiling and always chill....
So to hear this news, it is definitely heartbreaking cause we treated him just like our own family..... 
The result of it, according to my cousin, he complained sudden headache to which they thought it was a migraine as it was only on one side. He pop some panadol and goes to sleep, but woke up in the middle of the night to shower and pop panadol again, then he keep on saying "apesal sakit ni" (why is this so painful). My cousin suggested to see doctor but he refused. 
And the next moment, my cousin so happened felt his cold hands, tried to wake him up but no response. They had to call ambulance and straight to emergency surgery.
The cause of it : one of the vein in his brain has burst.
Subhannallah. How can it be that easy for Allah SWT to put us into a test?
To test our patience, to have complete reliance on nothing, not even the life support but Him.
Without one vein, just that simple, nothing can work out. But also without that vein, with HIS will, it can still work out.
To which nikmat are we to deny?
If you are complaining now that you didn't get what you want....
But look at your fingers that are moving, your legs that are walking, your eyes that sees.. all these.. is actually gifts that we do not deserved but we have it anyway.. 
Can we ever thank HIM enough?
This incident makes me even more realized that at one moment you can be and do your daily things as per normal and the next moment..........
I looked at my husband and my children... and astarghfirullah, I have been taking them for granted... I have not appreciate them enough....
What if Allah SWT takes them all away from me with just a snap of a finger? Do I have a chance to tell them I love them and hug them?
May Allah SWT opens all of our hearts in realization that we do not have much time left in Dunia. Our heart is like a ticking bomb which anytime can be "exploded". Our life here in Dunia is just to seek forgiveness and seek repentance. Our life here is not for our life in Dunia, whatever we do here, will be judged during Akhirah.
Please make doa for Abdul Shukor who is currently still in coma ICU.
Thank you for your time in reading and prayers.
Till our next post
XoXo,
S
