12yrs of exit: Remembering Alh. S.A. Arowona everyday with prayers
Sunday 29th January 2023 marked 12years of the exit of a great philantropist with large heart of tolerance and love for fellow mankind, Alhaji S.A. Arowona.
He was a father to all, a bridge builder, mentor and guardian to many souls through his extraordinary character of charity and concern for the less privileged.
He exhibited the altitudes of been different from every fathers during his lifetime. He created time to discuss issues together with his family members and move around at his convenient moments.
He used to talk to them about feelings and encouraged them to take life very simple and easy because according to him, “Everything in life is vanity and should be treated as such”.
Although, some of his philosophical postulations, if not all, were outrightly ambiguous to me and I wouldn’t realize there essences until he passed away. Growing up, I knew him as a man uncomfortable with laziness and cruelty. I saw him openly struggle with his own entrenched business mindset and high sense of contentment.
I closely watched him as he tried to give clear definitions to hardwork and obedience among his children as against unseriousness that is fast gaining the centre stage in our society today which he sincerely demonstrated among all his children including yours sincerely. He was a complete disciplinarian and not wicked, he was so generous and humble to a fault.
These kinds of experiences are uncommon to be gotten from a father who was ready to do anything that could bring smiles to the lips of his children and everlasting happiness to the entire family. Most children, I know don’t have much praises for their fathers, particularly when it comes to upbringing.
The entire family prays for you everyday for whom you were and for the wonderful meaning and reflections that you gave to our lives as the family remain very strong and united.
We are all thankful to God that even at death, we still remember you as our father. May Allah continue to be pleased with you, forgive your shortcomings, accept your good deeds and admit you into al-janatul firdaos.
