It was revealed that the pilgrim had died while wearing Ahram during his Hajj.
“This is a Pakistani pilgrim who spent 43 years saving money to perform the Hajj. He sold his farm and then worked at it for a salary after he’d been its owner.

The pilgrim could not be identified while it is not known if he had performed his Hajj or not. People, however, prayed for his forgiveness and eternal peace.
Indeed from Allah we came and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy upon him and accept him as a martyr, one who will be raised in the state of ihram for hajj.
