In a tweet, Najib expressed his sadness of his mother's passing.
"Bonda (mother) is no longer here. Our entire family is at the hospital.
"The sadness and the tears are flowing. There are no words to describe this loss," he tweeted on Friday (Dec 18).
Earlier, Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa tweeted the passing of Najib's mother.
Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and the Sultan of Perak Sultan Nazrin Shah were among the dignitaries who had visited the ailing Rahah who was warded at the Prince Court Medical Centre on Thursday (Dec 17).
Tun Rahah was born in Muar, Johor in 1933.
Her late father, Haji Noah (Tan Sri Haji Mohammad Noah bin Omar), was one of the founders of Umno and went on to become the first speaker of Dewan Rakyat.
Rahah, 87, married Abdul Razak on Sept 4,1952. The couple were blessed with five sons, including former CIMB Bank chairman Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazir Razak, Datuk Ahmad Johari, Datuk Mohamed Nizam and Datuk Mohamed Nazim.
