Al-Fatihah : Sheikh Mustafa Shukor Al Masrie

PETALING JAYA: The younger brother of Malaysian astronaut Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Sheikh Mustapha died here Saturday after being in coma since last Sunday as a result of a fall.

Sheikh Mustafa Shukor Al Masrie, 32, breathed his last at 6pm at the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre's Intensive Care Unit where he was warded following the mishap.

Sheikh Mustafa was going into a restaurant in Jalan Kelang Lama on Oct. 21 - the same day Dr Sheikh Muszaphar returned to Earth from the International Space Station - when he accidentally knocked into a pillar.

He fell to the ground with his head hitting a pile of bricks and had been in coma since. An uncle of Sheikh Mustafa said his remains were taken to his house at No 7, Lorong 12/12B here about 8.20pm and expected to be buried at the Makam Tuan Haji Said cemetery in Sikamat, Seremban after Zohor prayer Sunday.

Sheikh Mustafa, the fourth of five siblings, leaves a wife, Norhayati Mohd Redza, 28, and two children.

This is what you call 'Ketentuan Ilahi' (God's will). My prayers to the family.

I can't even begin to imagine what the wife is going through...
