“Innalillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un… Saddened to hear of the passing of the legendary actor Abdul Wahid bin Ahmad or better known as Wahid Satay this morning

“I pray that all his sins will be forgiven, and that his soul will be placed among the righteous… Al-Fatihah,” Fahmi said in a Facebook post.

Wahid’s second child, Hafizah, 67, said her father will be laid to rest at the Pusara Aman Muslim cemetery in Singapore after the Zohor (midday) prayers.
