Makkah: A 25-year-old Saudi girl, who was born during Haj days, died while performing Haj (pilgrimage) in Makkah just an hour after texting her father on his mobile telling him that she wishes to die there.
Ahmed Al Malki said his daughter nearly completed all Haj rituals when she sent him the message telling him that she prays to God to die "during these blessed days."
"She sent me the message just an hour before she died…she told me that she was born during these blessed days and prays to God that she dies during these days," Malki said, quoted by the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada.
"People came to offer condolences but I told them I will not accept this…I asked them to congratulate me on this blessing end and pray to God to let her into His Paradise…I also ask all people to pray for my daughter."
Sada said Malki lives in the Western Saudi town of Taif but it did not mention how his daughter died.
