PORT DICKSON: Muhammad Haidir Rodzi remembers his mother’s message clearly, that he should look after his four younger siblings, before being admitted to the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) due to Covid-19.

Haidir, 23, said it never crossed his mind that the message via a video call was his mother’s last words to him – to take over the responsibility of looking after his siblings – after both his parents succumbed to the virus, within a week of each other.

It was devastating for the siblings when their father, Rodzi Tahar, 55, died at the Tampin Hospital on May 31, their mother, Nazita Idris, 45, at the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital six days later.

“We are completely heartbroken but we accept that this is the will of Allah. The saddest thing was that we could not pay our last respects to our parents, to touch and kiss them for the last time, but our prayers are always with them,” he told Bernama.
