(474) The Demise of a Gentle Giant

03 Jun

You may click here to read in Gujarati:

‘Gentle Giant’ are idiomatic words which are used for a guy who is tall and strong but has a quiet mild nature. Such persons are always very nice, thoughtful and caring for others.

Our greater Musa family has lost a gentle giant named Haji  Ahmadhusain M. Musa recently on 25th May, 2015 at the age of 56. If I introduce him as my nephew, it will be  an injustice to our sound and special relations as I had always equated him as my son since his birth. There was the difference of only four years between our two generations. He was the eldest  member of our next generation with grey eyes in appearance but always compassionate for others. He was a man of principles and firm decisions. He was an outspoken person and possessed a mood of ‘who cares’ and therefore some persons not knowing him intimately might have misunderstood him, but he was a tender hearted fellow and never felt any enmity or grievances towards anybody. There might be some difference of opinion with anybody who came into contact with him, but he never kept any prejudice or bias in his mind. That is why he had declared his apologies to all before us prior to his calm and comfortable demise.

PPHis untimely passing away has hit a severe stroke to the hearts of our family members, community people, friends, relatives and business related people. But at the same time, when we remember that he had lived a quality life; our grief for losing him calms down and we feel good to ease our pain. His religious, righteous and pious life has set an example of good moral character to the people of his contacts. Over and above our compulsory religious levies, he had made some extra provision of certain percentage for ‘Kare khair’ i.e. good deeds and he regularly donated to needy persons particularly for education and ailment. His accuracy in all aspects of his routine life was praiseworthy; for example when he dismantled the staples of papers, he pressed them at both the ends and cast them in dustbin properly and immediately with a preventive thought that they should not harm anybody.

Though his ailment had remained long due to failure of both his kidneys, he never became nervous or uttered any complaints. His kidney-transplant operation with kidney-donation of his wife Shakina was successful, but some post-operation problems of infection etc. played their negative roles severely and he was no more; but no trace of any pain or sufferings was seen on his face.  He was also so lucky that he could pass some days together with his daughter Rubina and son Riyaz who have migrated to Australia, and also his younger brother Shabbirali who was in Saudi Arabia.

It is true that his passing away has caused us to lament and grieve behind for years, but it is also eternally true that from God we come and to Him shall we return – “Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raaji’oon!”. Lailah Gifty Akita quotes, “We are formed by dust; when life ends, we shall return as dust to the ground.” It is also said that a short but quality living is greater than the quantity living measured in years and Ahmadhusen did live an exemplary social and religious life.

Let us pray for the deceased Haji Ahmadhusen to the Almighty God with the medium of the Infallibles to rest his departed soul amongst His chosen ones, in the proximity of the Infallibles and amongst the souls of those people who enjoy the mercy and pleasure of Him.

-Valibhai Musa

    مرنےوالے مرتے ہے لیکن جدا ہوتے نہیں
    ٹٹ جاتا ہے پھكس تار فنا ہوتا نہیں
    جینا مرنا ایک ہے، گر يجھكو جھرابھي گيان ہے
    چےه ادھركا مرتبہ ہے، ووه ادھركي شان ہے

    Respected Vali kaka,

    I was on shocked when i heard this bad news on 25 th in early morning. He was regularly talking with me regarding his health and operation in Ahmedabad and always told me that all are ok and nothing to worry now.

    He was such a brave and sweet man. I know him from 2003 ,when i was started my carrier as a branch head at Anagram Stockbroking Ltd in Palanpur.

    I was shift BARODA on 2006 from Palanpur but ,we regularly talk with each other.

    Our relation start as a client but in a short time our relation become very friendly.

    He was a great gentle man , i fell like that i lost my family member. i cant’ forget him.

    You gave perfect Word GENTLE GIANT……

    May his soul rest in place and God gives strength to his all family member.

    From : Pankaj S Pandya
    BARODA.

      Thanks, Pankajbhai. I am the witness of you both with mutual relations as not only friends but like brothers. He accompanied you in your professional journey routed as Anagram > JM > Micro Sec. He was the eldest of all the ten male descendants of our next generation. I shared much more with him rather than my sons. It is said that sooner or latter the death is at the end and one should always be prepared to embrace it. We all shall miss him for years as he was special by nature to maintain human relations. Our relations are family relations and we hope that they will continue in the years to come. Remember us in your prayers.
      With warm regards,
      Valikaka

    હાજી વડીલ અહમદહુસૈન મુસાની પરિવારમાં strong presence અને લગાવથી સુજ્ઞ હોવાને લીધે એમના જવાથી આપને અનુભવાતો ઝુરાપો અને ખાલીપો હું સુપેરે કળી શકું છું. અલ્લાહ તેઓની આખેરતને રહેમતોથી નવાજે અને તેઓના પરિવારને સબ્ર બક્ષે એવી દુઆ.

    સકળ બ્લૉગર-નેટરમિત્રો, સ્નેહીજનો, સગાંસંબંધીઓ, ‘વેગુ’પરિવારજનો અને મિત્રવૃંદ જોગ …

    નમ્ર નિવેદન કે આપ સૌએ અમારા પરિવારના સ્તંભ સમા હાજી અહમદભાઈ મુસાના અવસાનના દુ:ખદ પ્રસંગે વિવિધ રીતે દિલસોજી પાઠવી છે તેનાથી અમારાં પરિવારજનોને શબ્દાતીત હૈયાધારણ પ્રાપ્ત થઈ છે. મરહુમ (સ્વર્ગસ્થ)ના આત્માને શાંતિ અર્પતી આપ સૌની દુઆઓ (પ્રાર્થનાઓ) અવશ્ય કલ્યાણકારી બની રહેશે તેવી અમને અપાર શ્રદ્ધા છે.

    મરહુમની લાંબી સારવાર દરમિયાન અનેકોએ સમય અને શક્તિ દ્વારા અમને જે સહકાર આપ્યો છે, તે બદલ અમે સૌ પરિવારજનો આપ સૌનાં ઋણી છીએ. હૉસ્પિટલના ડોક્ટરો અને સહાયકોએ મરહુમના જીવનની છેલ્લી ઘડી સુધી દિવસરાત જે મહેનત કરી છે તેનાથી અમે ગદગદિત થઈએ છીએ.

    ફરી એક વાર આપ સૌનો આભાર માનીને અમે અત્રેથી વિરમીએ છીએ.

    સસ્નેહ,
    વલીભાઈ મુસા
