A grateful Shukeriradzi, 52, said he received the cows from Khusairi himself a day before he died on July 15, Harian Metro reported.

He said he felt sad remembering the last moments he shared with the 59-year-old leader.

“I am relieved and grateful to be able to fulfil the wishes of Datuk Mohd Khusairi and slaughter the five sacrificial cows myself.

“I couldn’t sleep well every night but now that I have fulfilled his wishes, I feel relieved and pray that his deeds will be rewarded, with his soul placed among the believers, ” he said.
