In Memory of Ahmad Zakuan

Ahmad Zakuan is another of my Ex-Student who passed away at about 07.30hrs on 27th Feb 2010. He passed away in his rented house in Turkmenbashy. His death was due to propane gas leakage due to malfunctioning of heater in his rented house. Due to cold weather, in Turkmenistan, the house is heated using centrally supplied propane gas.

Gas heater (Propane) with open flame are used for space heating purpose due the cold climate in Turkmenistan, propane gas is supplied via centralized piping system and / or cylinders to majority of households in Turkmenbashy city.

Ahmad Zakuan is one of good students in his batch and I am really proud to learn that he was doing well as an engineer working with an engineering firm in Turkmenistan.

Why I decided to write this blog about him. It is because of the Facebook phenomenon as shown below.

If you are an avid facebook user, you will always being suggested by facebook to add new friends or if you have not writing any post to an existing contact, you will be reminded by facebook to say Hello on his wall. Ahmad Zakuan is on my friend list and as usual, facebook will remind me to say Hello on his facebook wall.

Thinking for a while on what to write since he is no longer there to see what I am going to write on his wall, then I decided to write this blog about him.

Is there any way for facebook to recognize that the person is no longer there and stop making suggestion for friends to write on his wall.

The last update of the facebook most likely indicates the date when the person is no longer there to update it. I think it would be an impossible task for any program to recognize such a situation or condition.

Well, will that happen to our own facebook in the future. Or, will that happen to our own blog in the future. As for the blog, if it is not updated does not necessarily indicates that the person is no longer there. It might be the case that he or she is too busy (which is usually the case) to update it frequently.

The moral of this entry is that, always write something that is good to everybody and to the humanity so that the entry will be always become useful to the humanity.

Al-Fatihah and pray that Allah S.W.T. will blessed him.
