A Guinean woman, identified as Sayyada Fanta Sangaré has been reportedly arrested for claiming to have the power to pray on top of water.
The woman who went viral on social media for praying on top of a water body in the Western province has been reportedly picked up by the police.
It was reported that passersby stood by watching her in shock as many couldn’t believe how a person could defy gravity to float on water.
However, it was discovered that the woman placed a piece of wood on top of the water and laid her praying mat on it to deceive people that she stood on the water to pray.
Reacting to the incident, Fanta said; “This is not a big deal to her because she and the water are all servants of Allah, and as long as a man will fear Allah and obey Allah and his prophet and pray for Allah and His prophet and pray for him, Allah can do everything He obeyed him including water and fire?”
Speaking about her arrest, the Taouyah special police of Guinea said “her act is not an offense. Why arrest her for that…?” a senior police official was quoted as saying.
The officer added; “She is there (police station) of course, but that is for another matter. It is a complaint brought against her by a citizen.” Although the police claimed the woman was not arrested because of her act, the main reason for her arrest was undefined.
