Children brings cheer to Karim Sulaiman

HAWA, Karim Sulaiman's wife, sent me a text message a few days ago. Apart from wishing all of us Selamat Hari Raya Haji, Hawa gave an update of Karim's next appointment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

Karim's original appointment with the hospital's top dermatologist was Jan 8 but this has been pushed to Jan 10. Karim is looking forward to the appointment. Friends and former colleagues have been visiting him since news of his ailment spread in the last month or so.

Karim's ailment has caught the attention of the deputy minister of health. Datuk Dr Abdul Latif Ahmad, who keeps monitoring the former journalist's condition. The kind Dr Latif helped arranged an ambulance to fetch Karim from his house in Sri Gombak to be brought to the hospital

Hawa said the family requested for the postponement because she has to make arrangements to send one the couple's children to a boarding school nearby. Khair Najid, fourth in the family, is fortunate to have been accepted as a Form One student at Sekolah Menengah Sains Cheras. This will certainly encourage the lad to do well in his studies and do the parents proud.

But the family is not short of cheer. Their third child, Khairah Nazurah, brought more cheer when the PMR results were announced recently. She scored 8As in the Form Three examninations. She studies at the Sekolah Menengah Hillcrest but is now trying to get into Sekolah Menengah Sains Sri Putri at Jalan Maxwell.

Karim must surely be elated that his children are doing well in their studies. We pray that Karim's illness will be cured, and that some on-going medical research somewhere will lead to new discoveries to ease the man's burden.

For now, Karim is quite contended to have a very supportive wife who cares for him night and day; and children who knows the value of a good education and strive to be the best among their peers. Syabas kids! You sure light up the eyes of your parents! Alhamdulillah (Praise be to the Almighty).

From Karim and Family

Ybhg Dato,

Just to tell you how happy we were yesterday, when Encik Adam Salleh,
Pengarang Hiburan Harian Metro came along with Mr Freddie Fernandez leading the
Karyawan members.

And having the shocked of our lives when Mawi stepped in! Followed by Dato Sarimah
Ahmad, ibu Yusni Jaafar, Pak Aziz Sattar and wife, Dynaz, Betty Benafe, Felix, Salwa
Abdul Rahman, Syazliayana, Nash, Esma Daniel and Azizul Khamis.

All these celebrities came, taking their time out from their heavy schedule just to drop by
giving words of support in their very own way!

At the same time Mr Freddie Fernandez handed out a cash donation.

We cannot thank you enough Dato for what you have done for us.

Sdra Karim dan keluarga,

Saya bersyukur kerana penderitaan Saudara mendapat perhatian dari rakan-rakan dan kenalan yang pernah Saudara bantu di masa lampau. Saya percaya ramai lagi sahabat, rakan dan kenalan berdoa agar penyakit Saudara akan semboh dan Saudara boleh meneruskan khidmat seperti sediakala. Berat mata memandang, berat lagi bahu yang memikul. Saya dan sahabat-sahabat yang lain cuma cuba membantu, tak lebih dari itu. Apabila penderitaan Saudara mendapat perhatian pihak ramai dan yang berkuasa, saya benar-benar bersyukur. Keadaan Saudara juga mendorong kita semua sedar bahawa kesihatan adalah satu-satunya anugerah yang perlu kita jaga sebaik-baiknya. Saya terus doakan agar Saudara terus cekal menghadapi dugaan Tuhan, agar semangat saudara tidak luntur, agar sokongan dan jagaan dari keluarga tersayang boleh meringankan beban yang ditanggung. Sebenarnya Saudara mempunyai ramai sahabat, rakan dan kenalan yang mendoadakn agar Saudara segera sembuh dan pulih seperti dahulu. Salam hormat dari saya.

Saudara Karim dan Hawa.

Tahniah kerana dipilih oleh Allah SWT untuk menerima ujiannya. Tidak ramai yang berpeluang untuk mendapat ujian Allah SWT dan setakat ini anda berdua telah berjaya mengharunginya dengan baik dan sabar.

Kesabaran dan kekuatan mental adalah penawar kepada penyakit yang dihadapi. Allah SWT tidak pernah menganiaya hambanya tetapi sering menguji mereka yang dipilihnya dari semasa ke semasa.

Kejayaan mengharungi ujian Allah SWT adalah kenikmatan sebenarnya bukannya kemewahan material.

Sudah tentu ujian Allah SWT itu menyebabkan anda tidak boleh melakukan kegiatan seperti manusia biasa dan membuat apa yang anda suka. Namun, anda berdua adalah golongan terpilih oleh Allah SWT.

Tabahkan hati selalu.
