A Filipino passed away Monday in Saudi Arabia while on Hajj, the fifth case for the 7,325 Philippine pilgrims who attended this year, Manila Bulletin reported.

Kiram Macapalao Rasuman died inside a tent in Mina, one of the venues for the final hajj rituals. According to National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) spokesperson Jun Alonto-Datu Ramos, Rasuman’s hajj team informed the authorities about his fainting inside the tent in Mina.

The medical supervisory team, headed by Dr. Abdulnasser Masorong Jr., said that his death is caused by hypertension with coronary artery ailment.

In a report by Manila Bulletin, Datu Ramos presented a certification from Philippine Consular Office that showed his accompanying relatives had agreed for the deceased to be buried in Makkah.

Rasuman is the fifth Filipino to die in this year’s Hajj. Other pilgrims include Abdulnasser Hosain Banto, 62; Bailani Sakandal Dalandas, 70; Enting Tungao Kamensa, 66; and Sarapia Abalimbona Taha, 57—according to NCMF reports.

Many Filipinos, according to Datu-Ramos Jr., want to die in the kingdom during the Hajj because they believe they will go to heaven if that happens.
