1894Mohammad Rayhan, a resident of Douma city near Damascus, was believed to be dead after the heavy bombing by the government forces on a market place where he went.

When more than a day after the shelling took place and Rayhan’s did not came back, his family presumed that he must have died under the rubble and announced for his funeral prayer in absentia.

With his head and beard was fully covered by dust of the rubble, he just managed to reach ‘in time’ and changed the air of mourning into the moments of joy.

Rayhan’s family members were delighted after finding him alive and credit goes to him who interrupted in his ‘final moments’.
