A few days later Hari Raya came. I spent the first Hari Raya at my in-laws' place in Melaka. In the second day I was in my mother's home in Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan. I only returned to my house on the third day of Hari Raya.
On the fourth day of Hari Raya I and my family went to my colleague's house situated in the same area as my subordinate's. My friend was not home but his wife and children were. There my friend's wife told me that my subordinate had died in the early morning of the first day of Hari Raya. Knowing that my subordinate did not show any kind of sickness I asked how did he die, suspecting something like a heart attack and the like.
"He hanged himself in his bathroom" was the answer. Then I told my friend's wife that a few weeks ago I had a long talk with him. That he had been telling me about his frustrations and so on.
To my surprise my friend's wife told me "You know what? I was told that he had been telling the same things you told me (his frustrations) to his family the night before the died".
May Allah have mercy on his soul.
