Call it faith, call it foolishness, but there is certainly one word that depicts this imam and that is bravery. An imam continued offering prayers as a deadly earthquake hit Indonesian island of Lombok.
In the shocking video which has since gone viral on social media, the imam is seen calmly offering namaz despite the instability of the mosque due to the ongoing earthquake. While some people left, the imam remained in the same spot, praying.
The powerful earthquake that hit Indonesia on Monday, August 6, has left 100 people dead and hundreds wounded, with thousands of buildings ravaged, leaving 20, 000 people homeless.
Due to the earthquake which has brought down roads and bridges, electricity supply in the worst-affected areas has been cut off and telecommunication networks are not working. Boats have also been sent to evacuate about 2,000 tourists from the nearby Gili islands.
A seven-magnitude tremor also jolted the neighbouring island of Bali, creating panic amongst tourists and locals.
