Sadness descended on the family of the retired Egyptian artist, Jihan Nasr, following the death of her father, Nasr Issa.
The artist’s account, via the social networking site “Facebook”, announced the sad news, and the funeral took place today.
Jihan said: “We belong to God and to Him we shall return. My father, Hajj Nasr, passed away to God’s mercy, may God bless him with the vastness of his mercy. We only say what pleases the Lord of the worlds, and there is no objection to God’s judgment,” asking everyone to pray for him for mercy and forgiveness.
