Congratulations Jep!

Assalamu'alaikum wbt and Hi everyone,

Having grown up with you for almost 25 years, this occasion of yours just mean as significant to me as it is to you. This event, will certainly be embedded in your memory forever, and it will be in mine too.

Through the thick and thin, I've seen you smile and cry from when you were just a kid until you've grown up to become who you are now. This time, I'm sure you'll be smiling and crying yet again, only that now I could not be there to witness them.



The three of us, always standing up for each other.


Jep,

I believe you know I would do everything to be there for your big day, but we can only plan so much, but yet the ultimate end of our plannings are in Allah's hands. If only you can feel how shattered I am that I couldn't be there for you when I know you've been there for me before. Nevertheless, I'm delighted to have at least spoken to you over the phone and found out that you've done well with your akad nikah =)



Us@London, December 2008.


Congratulations Jep for your wedding, I wish you and Kak Fifah all the best in life and in the hereafter. Life will certainly not be the same for you now that you have an added responsibility as a leader in your new family. But having known you all my life, I know Kak Fifah will be one happy woman having met you as her soulmate, insha Allah.



"If Allah grants a Muslim a righteous wife, this helps him preserve half of his religion (faith). He should, therefore, fear Allah as regards the other half." [At-Tabrani and Al-Hakim]



‘May Allaah bless for you (your spouse) and bless you, and may He unite both of you in goodness.’

Your brother,
Afzal.

Asalamulaikum wbth,

Part of the tears I shed during the akad ceremony was for my one son and brother who could not be with us to share this historical occasion..

Jep was great throughout...
although trying hard to suppress his usual desire to poke fun at everyone, including the Tok Imam!

.....mama

Thank you very much for the endearing post. Though you were not there physically but we felt that you were there in spirit. Aiysha did a good job on the video presentation and inculcated quite a dramatic approach towards your recorded video message. I feel it has at least vindicated some of our affectionate longing for you.

Through our triumphs and tribulations growing up, we've been through a lot together. Though we are not together during this celebrious of moments, I seek solace in the fact that I know you are happy for me and the path I am treading. In every sense of the nuptial notions, I look forward to yours one day; and as that time comes insyaAllah I'll be there to witness it personally.

I am glad we could both reason into God's plans for us, and rest assured everything happens for a grand reason. But amongst all odds, know that I definitely had you in my thoughts throughout the whole proceedings. InsyaAllah, His rewards are gratuitous. One does not get married often, but one also does not get such a good brother as often, as well.

For the time being, Andi has been my best man but lest you forget - we three have and will always remain best men to ourselves.

Your continued recovery and good health remain in my prayers, and everyone here sends their regards.

Take care chemoboy! :D

P.S : We're leaving for our honeymoon to Bali come Sunday 3rd! Jgn jeles!

Have a safe trip, look after Kak Fifah and urself. Take care!
