While this story has been heard routinely throughout history, this account is both verifiable and recent. Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi was declared dead in Egypt after he suffered a heart attack at work.
Hamdi was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. As per Islamic tradition, Hamid was washed and prepared for burial. The day of the funeral, with his entire group of family and friends desperately mourning the sudden loss of Hamid, a doctor approached his body to sign the death certificate.
The doctor found Hamid to still be warm and slightly breathing and revived him, at which point his mother fainted upon seeing him! Hamid being alive surprised his guests so much that they turned the funeral into a party celebrating his life!
