My Mum’s Grave
My mother passed away back in Sept 1993. After she died, I would make a ritual of visiting her grave every Friday morning for the next 6 years without miss. She was buried in a special building in a mosque compound in Klang. So one day, as usual I went to visit her grave. On that day, the weather was a bit cloudy and about to rain. I sat near the tombstone and start reading some Quran verses for her. Later I would throw some daun pandan and water. Since her tombstone was a bit higher than the ground, I have to stand up and peep down from the top of her tombstone. Somehow that day, in my heart I said to myself “gelapnye, sampai tak nampak tanah” And suddenly there was a flashing of lights, 2 or 3 times. There was no way anyone could hide down there and knew what I have just said and yet I saw light flashing just after I said that to myself.
Truthfully I do not really feel that scared because in my heart, it just my mama’s grave and she will protect me but one thing for sure the hair on the back of my neck did surely stand up. I went back to my office, but I did not said a word to anyone. I just don’t want people to find me weird or thought that I was making up some story. I still visit her even after the incident and sometime I would talk to her in my heart. But I’m sure more careful not to complaint or ask question. I certainly do not want ‘someone’ there to answer me.
