The mystery of the Floating Mat in Mosque

Just 3 days ago a mystifying incident took place in a mosque in Trengganu, Malaysia. The Crystal Mosque, as it is known, has attracted quite a lot of local public interest after the strange incident took place. Thanks to the advancement of Technology, a lady was able to capture this incident with her mobile phone camera.


The photo shows the carpet slowly inching, oblivious to the man, in prayers.

The photo has sparked fears among the rural folks who might believe it to be the work of evil spirits or genies, haunting the mosques. However, the chief "Imam", Uztaz Azizi Saidi dismisses this as hardly a phenomenon. He claims that such occurences have also taken place in Saudi Arabia. He believes that this is a sign that Muslims are distancing themselves from prayers.

i wonder whether this news have been verified by some religious authority

Hi Mr. Hans aka "the Bluesman",
Recently, the "pocong" (ghost) mystery in Malacca was busted by a motorist when he turned back to inspect the floating cloth by the roadside. It turned out to be a cloth tied to a rope which was hung from a tree. Someone drew the eyes (red colour).

It turned out to be the work of local teenagers who were taking delight in scaring the locals off at night. They were warned of against such pranks by the Imam & the elders.

Indeed, a verification would be good though some similar incidents have taken place in Arab. This would separate the truth from the fallacy. The cloth captured in the photo was not floating though locals "claimed" to have seen was reported in the daily.

Hmmm, that was interesting. Looks like somethings will always remain mystery.

I myself has been trying to solve the mystery of the legend that forces you to have "earn it before

having it", for a wile now. Could not understand much though.

Let me know in case you get to understand the mystery of the Old Hound and the Legend

By the way, good writing style. I'd love to read more on similar topics
