MB Kelantan, Dato’ Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat dilaporkan telah dimasukkan ke Hospital Pakar Perdana, awal pagi semalam kerana serangan sakit jantung.
Beliau mengadu sakit dada sewaktu bangun pagi pada pukul 4 pagi. (Memang menjadi rutin harian Tok Guru bangun awal pagi untuk solat tahajjud sebelum solat subuh dan kemudiannya memberi kuliah subuh di Masjid Pulau Melaka yang bersebelahan dengan rumah beliau.)
Akhbar the Star melaporkan yang beliau ingin membatalkan hasrat untuk menunaikan umrah yang telah dirancang pada 1 Ogos ini. Sebaliknya, beliau meminta supaya wang belanja perjalanan itu dibelanjakan kepada orang miskin!
Saya rasa diri ini sangat kecil dan hina jika dibandingkan dengan Tok Guru Nik Aziz. Jika seorang MB yang sentiasa sibuk, sudah berumur, dan kini sedang sakit pula, tidak lupa untuk solat tahajjud, bagaimanakah diri ini? Usah bicara tentang solat tahajjud. Hatta solat subuh pun sangat sukar untuk dilaksanakan! Apakah alasan yang ingin diberi untuk tidak belajar bangun malam dan meletakkan dahi di atas sejadah? Sibuk? Tak sempat? Letih?
Sesungguhnya, Tok Guru Nik Aziz telah menunjukkan kepada kita yang pangkat dan kuasa bukan menjadi penghalang untuk kita menjadi pengabdi kepada Allah.
Semoga Allah melindungi beliau dan memberikan kesihatan dan kekuatan untuk meneruskan perjuangan.

At 6.45pm the hospital’s medical director, Datuk Dr Mahmud Awang Kechik, said the Mentri Besar’s condition was “serious but stable”.
He said Nik Aziz was suffering from coronary thrombosis but was able to murmur a few words after he came out of sedation.
Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat at the intensive care unit of the Perdana Specialist Medical Centre in Kota Baru after he suffered a heart attack at his house in Pulau Melaka at about 6am on Thursday.
He added, however, that the Mentri Besar was still weak.
Dr Mahmud said a team of specialists from the National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur was expected to arrive at the hospital last night.
It is learnt that shortly after waking up at about 4am, Nik Aziz called his wife and some of his children to his side.
Already unwell and complaining of chest pains, he told them he wanted to cancel a planned umrah trip with some family members and aides on Aug 1.
He asked them to donate the money (to be used for the trip) to the poor.
He then performed his tahajjud prayers (obligatory prayers before the mandatory subuh prayers) and then his subuh prayers before his family accompanied him to the Perdana Specialist Medical Centre here in an ambulance.
State government spokesman Husam Musa said the 73-year-old spiritual adviser to PAS was brought to the hospital from his house in Pulau Melaka at about 6am.
Husam, the state Finance and Public Administration Committee chairman, said heart specialist Dr Ibrahim Abdullah had told him that Nik Aziz will be given medication and may have to undergo an operation within two days.
“Dr Ibrahim also said Nik Aziz’s heart was weak and there may be coronary complications.
On the whole, however, his condition does not look that bad,” Husam told reporters after visiting the Mentri Besar at the hospital in the afternoon.
In a phone interview with The Star in Petaling Jaya later, Husam said Nik Aziz was “conscious but still very weak”.
He added: “The doctors are considering heart surgery for Tok Guru (as Nik Aziz is fondly called by followers) in the next two days when his condition stabilises.”
Husam said that except for his son, ISA detainee Nik Adli, all members of the Mentri Besar’s family were at his bedside.
Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Noh Omar said arrangements were being made for Nik Adli to visit his father.
He was expected to arrive at the hospital from the Kamunting camp at 11pm.
Kelantan Deputy Mentri Besar Ahmad Yakob said Nik Aziz appeared more stable.
He said medical specialists who examined Nik Aziz found that “he has a slight heart case and very high blood pressure.”
Hundreds of well-wishers made a beeline for the hospital on hearing the news about their leader. However, the ICU ward was only opened to his immediate relatives.
