A video showing an Indonesian woman collapsing while reciting the Qur’an has gone viral, with many people praying for the deceased.
The 22-second video is believed to be from a religious gathering showing the woman slowly falling back as people rush to rescue her.
The woman, reading verses from Surah Al-Baqara, was later attended to by medics, only to be pronounced dead later, suffering from a possible cardiac arrest.
Social media users shared the footage, praising her and saying “it was an honorable way to die.” They also prayed to Allah to grant her a place in paradise.

A similar incident was reported in 2018 when a Pakistani Muslim expat in Saudi Arabia collapsed while praying.
