When I was in the secondary school, I had an opportunity to stay and experience the ‘pondok life’ for few weeks. It was in Tuan Guru Haji Abdullah Lubuk Tapak’s hut.
This morning, I’ve heard the news that Tuan Guru Haji Abdullah has pass away, meeting his Creator. We have lost another star that enlighten the us with his knowledge and barakah.
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al’ As:
I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “Allah does not take away the knowledge, by taking it away from (the hearts of) the people, but takes it away by the death of the religious learned men till when none of the (religious learned men) remains, people will take as their leaders ignorant persons who when consulted will give their verdict without knowledge. So they will go astray and will lead the people astray.” (Volume 1, Book 3, Number 100)
