"Muhammad Yusuf Dadeh passed away Sunday at 05.00 Saudi Arabia Time, this Fajr service," said Azhari, quoted by ANTARA, Sunday, June 4.

He explained that this prospective hajj candidate is the owner of the C6319460 passport who is a member of the 04-BTJ group. He died at the Madinah Almunawarah General Hospital.

"God willing, we will be buried in Baqi. We pray that the deceased will be forgiven for all his sins and placed in the sight of Allah SWT," he said.
