An Egyptian man, named Tamer Issa, in order to commemorate the passing of his mother, designed a huge lantern, more than three metres long. Tamer put the lantern in front of his mother’s house in the Oreen village of the Shubrakhit Centre in Buhaira governorate, and decorated it with the image of his late mother.
Tamer said that the idea came to his head with the advent of the Holy Month of Ramadan, which coincides with the first anniversary of his mother's death, indicating that he had printed out large pictures of his mother and pasted them on the lantern, where he wrote: "Your Ramadan is in Paradise, InShAllah, mother."
At nightfall, the lantern gives off joyful lights, celebrating the advent of Ramadan, in addition to broadcasting verses of the Holy Qur’an and some religious supplications with the voices of the most famous singers in Egypt.
Tamer says: “This idea is the least I can offer to my mother, and the prayers of the passers-by for mercy and forgiveness is suffice for me".
