Footage has emerged of an Imam who continued to lead the evening prayer, during the Lombok earthquake on Sunday,
Reported to be on the island of Bali, this Imam has been praised for his unwavering faith in the face of the most destructive Acts of God.
While the earthquake rocks the Mosque, this Imam continues his call to prayer at the exact time the earthquake occurs. Others around him can be seen to run for safety, while he uses the wall for balance.
At 1.19, the video cuts to CCTV footage of worshipers elsewhere in the mosque, giving an insight into the bigger picture. Without hesitation, they scatter as soon as the mosque shakes, moments before the ceiling panels fall in their wake.
Watch the incredible footage of the Imam with the “Unwavering Faith”:
As amazing as the video is, no doubt their prayers are with their brothers and sisters on Lombok, particularly the 40 people suspected to be the victims of a collapsed mosque on the island.
