JEDDAH: Indonesian reciter Sheikh Ja’afar Abdulrahman died while reciting verses of the Qur’an during a live broadcast Tuesday during a national ceremony in the presence of the Indonesian Social Affairs Minister.
The four-minute video clip that caught the moment of the Sheikh’s death has been widely circulated on social media.
The late reciter appeared to have been struck by a sudden collapse while reading verses from the Al-Mulk chapter, where he kept on reciting until he was rescued by a medical team and removed on a stretcher.
A number of social media users who circulated the footage praised the reciter’s death saying “what an honorable way to die” and wishing the same fate for them and their loved ones.
