Finding The Light of Islam at The Age of 97 Years in Kota Bharu
Madam Mariam Goe @ Goe Long Wa converted to Islam at the age of 97. She converted on the first day of Chinese New Year in 2005 in Kota Bharu, Kelantan, Malaysia. The first question that crossed my mind was how Bro Mohd Amin Ang, who converted 3 years ago, convinced his mother to embrace Islam?
He didn’t have to explain much when we saw his wife, Sister Rohani taking care of her mother-in-law. She took good care of her mother-in-law with love, cleaned and fed her everyday even before Madam Mariam Goe embraced Islam. Sister Rohani showed a very good example of Islam to her mother-in-law. Bro Amin Ang loved and respected her mother even more after he converted to Islam.
The changing point of Madam Mariam Goe’s life was when she suffered from a non-stop bleeding problem and the doctor said that she had cancer and it was not advisable to do the operation due to her age. Bro Amin Ang invited some neighbours around the housing area at Taman Kemumin, Pengkaln Chepa, Kelantan to perform “hajat prayer”. With Allah’s willing, the bleeding stopped and this miracle changed Madam Mariam Goe.
May Allah bless her late precious syahadah and grant her the Garden.
