An Egyptian man has died while praying at a mosque in the Sharqiyah province of the African country, Al Arabiya reports.
According to the Dubai-based news outlet, Ahmed Abu Baras was performing the night-time (Isha) prayer at a local mosque when those around him noticed that he had not got up from his prostration (sajda) for a long time.
Upon going up to Baras to find out the reason behind this, eye witnesses say that they found Baras had died while prostrating before the Almighty.
The relatives of the dead man say that Baras died as a result of a sudden decrease in his blood pressure level.
“Ahmed Abu Baras was a respected for his integrity throughout the neighborhood. He regularly performed his prayer duties,” one of his relatives told a news outlet.
