By Friends of Zainal Adnan Khairudin in UAE
A week passed since the meeting was held between the management and his families back home. We have to refrain from further elaborating the event.
There are surging of renewed and fresh hopes as days progressing toward Aidilfitri. As always, rumours are circulating in virtual and real life about everything, including this case of unfortunate circumstance of an innocent man being detained for his company’s dishonoured cheques. Then again, sometimes rumours are just plain stories made up of false hopes or series of wild imaginations to kill the waiting time.
We always pray for the better, not for the worse. Ramadan is a month of ibadah and Syawal is for celebration for passing the test. Time to see things in different perspectives with vigour spirits.
Allah is THE best strategist of all. Ups and downs, there are always blessing in disguise. We may be too occupied with little things that we always take bigger things for granted that may slip away in seconds.
Thirty one days have already passed, a month and a week in prison calendar days. Not far on the horizon, simmering dusts of Ramadan forming beautiful rainbows of Syawal. Rays of hopes are glowing among the images of any other days’ scenery and view of ever developing Dubai. And amid chaotic, traffic jams and rush hours, the road may lead to a normal life again for him and his family.
Yesterday, we had a brief phone conversation, his voice echoing a sign of rejuvenation. We are all in the same mood and emotion. Not only for Syawal but also for the expectation that swells with the colours of life.
However, time will tell and we never lose the hopes in this trying time with everyone’s prayers!
