Prof Syed Abdullah Al Mohdhar

Prof Syed Abdullah Al Mohdhar had served at O&G Department, Hospital USM based in Kubang Kerian. My husband and I visited him at his Jalan Telipot home for kenduri long ago. He had remarried a Caucasian lady while in the UK. I met his Malay relative at EON Kota Bharu when Proton Waja first came on the market. Prof Syed Abdullah has passed away 2 years ago (sometime in 2014).

Alyamani Clan in Jelutong


MALACCA LINKS 

Arwah Prof Syed Mohsin said there are no Syeds in Malacca.

I would think that maybe after Syed Sheikh Alhady left Kg Hulu, no more Syeds remained in Malacca.

Abdul Rashid Makawi came from Makkah?
Mohd Hassan Al-Khaiyath came from Makkah (from Tok Kalthom, 5 June 2013).

Fatma Al-Yamani is Fatma bt Abdul Aziz Al-Yamani. 
Fatma Al-Yamani married to Syed Omar Syed Mohamad.

Shaikh Omar married Zubaidah (sepupu Tok)???

FAMILY VISITATIONS


First Visit
I visited  Professor Syed Mohsin bin Syed Sahil Jamalullail at his home in Kampung Huda, Kubang Kerian, Kelantan earlier in this evening, Sunday, 23 October 2011. I interviewed him from approximately 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm over fragrant chrysanthemum tea and cream puffs. Prof Syed Mohsin or "Tuan Syed" as I call him, is an authority on the Syed story in Penang (and maybe too in Malaysia & Singapore). I have always resorted to him for anything that has to do with Arabs and things Arabic. I first came to know him when I first started working as a lecturer at USM. He was already a lecturer and was also one of the 5 founders of the USM Medical School, then based in Penang. He was teaching Pharmacology to the first, second, third and fourth batches of medical students in UKM. The present Director-General (DG) was his student; the present DG was in the second batch of medical students at UKM.

The information below was obtained from Prof Syed Mohsin at the first visit on 23 October 2011, at his home in Kg Huda, Kubang Kerian, Kelantan.

Prof Syed previously worked with UKM Medical School before he was seconded to USM Medical School. He was one of the 5 founding lecturers of the USM Medical School in 1979. At the time he was known as Tuan Syed as he was the only lecturer with a Syed name. He became a full professor at USM, for which he was called Prof Syed. (Another Syed lecturer in O&G was Prof Syed Abdullah who returned from UK.)

Second Visit
I received an SMS from Tengku Damitri of Tuan Syed's sudden demise after he died and after he was buried, around Maghrib. I have no idea why the SMS came late into my handphone. I visited Kak Hasnah and family at home after solat Isya' today, 7 November 2011. The area was wet after the rain and pools of water could be seen. Affandi parked our car far away and we walked to the house. There were many cars parked by the road on the right shoulder. When I arrived in the house compound, they were already reading Surah Yaasin. I used my own buku doa Mathurat. Then I started sneezing in the cold night. After all the bacaan al-Quran and doa, the men exited and went for refreshment outside. My husband and I and the other ladies then entered the house. I went to find Kak Hasnah. I met Kak Hasnah and the other family members. It was the first time I met everyone in a large gathering. It was a sad gathering but it was a good learning experience for me. There were many Arab men and ladies in the house. I knew nobody except the ones I met at the first visit - Kak Hasnah, Muna and Lokmanul Hakim. Muna remembered me as she took our photos at the first visit. Then I sat next to a beautiful lady whom I never knew. I was introduced to her by Siti Salamah, also an Arab. I was introduced to Tuan Syed's mother for the first time. She is a dear lady and I think every woman must try to meet her and talk to her. She is Sharifah Mariam bt Syed Alwi (80 years). She asked me who I am and we started talking to see how we could be related. I talked mostly to Siti Salamah for my family links to Tuan Syed. I will therefore update information obtained from my first visit.

The information below was obtained from Siti Salamah, Sharifah Mariam bt Syed Alwi and Sharifah Alwiah Syed Sahil, day after Prof Syed Mohsin passed away, at the first tahlil on 7 November 2011, at his home in Kg Huda, Kubang Kerian, Kelantan.

House of Jamalullail

The clan name Jamalullail should strike us as a regal name in the Malay world.

So far, I have managed to trace a few of the Jamalullail clan members in Malaysia. They are related directly to Prophet Muhammad SAW via his daughter, and via her sons.

They are domiciled in a few places in Malaysia:
  1. Jelutong, Penang
  2. Batu Uban, Penang
  3. Kubang Kerian, Kelantan
  4. Jitra, Kedah
  5. Kuala Lumpur
  6. Arau, Perlis

There were 3 Jamalullail doctors in Malaysia:

  1. Dr Syed Mahmood bin Syed Hussain Jamalullail (an early Malay doctor, deceased), 
  2. Dr Syed Mohamed Noori Syed Hussain Jamalullail (youngest brother of Dr Syed Mahmood), and 
  3. Prof Syed Mohsin bin Syed Sahil Jamalullail (deceased).
