Arwah Faizah Arshad's husband loses faraid case

As you all know, our junior Faizah Arshad was murdered by her husband, Muhammad Suhaimi. In 1999 Suhaimi was charged with murdering Faizah, 37 with a knife in the bathroom but was acquited by the High Court on grounds of insanity ( good excuse as every one who is in rage can be counted as insane!).

On 16 February 2009, the Syariah High Court judge ruled that Suihaimi was not entitled to his one third share of Faizah's estate because of the murder he commited 10 years ago.

The estate is worth Rm 300k and probably is the value of Faizah's house in Bukit Damansara. The couple have two sons, Mohamad Fariz 18, Muhamad Syafiq 16 and a daughter Sarah 13.

Lessons learn from this incident:

1. Choose your husband/wife carefully and let your parents do the vetting and final approval.
2. If you want to fight, do it in an open field, away from kitchen knives, hammers and golf drivers.
3. If after more than 10, 20, 30 years of marriage, and both are still quarelling, better get a divorce.
4. If you think your husband/wife is mad, get help fast.
5.Life is too short, enjoy now while it last.

If you all cannot remember who Faizah Arshad, here's her picture during the good times in SMSJ.

When my father in-law (a former clerk not a geologist) passed away, he left ~ 100K cash dan some ekar kebun. Kebun diberi kepada my mother in-law dan cash dibahagi kepda 6 anak-anak (1 son n 5 daughters ikut faraid.). Kira seciput aje. But all his kids are (almostly US and UK) graduates.

Education seems to be the best "harta" you can leave for your kids!
