Three Pakistanis living in Saudi Arabia came up with a new way of welcoming Ramadan-at the bottom of the Red Sea.
Yaheya Ashfaq, Umer Jan and Qazi Ajma went to the bottom of the Red Sea off the Coast of Jeddah to welcome Ramadan.
Interestingly, they took lanterns with them to complete the celebrations under water.
Yaheya, a professional photographer who filmed the plunge, was quoted saying by Saudi Gazette.
"One of the reasons the group chose to go under water on the eve of Ramadan was to "highlight the importance that beaches, coral reefs and the sea play in our lives. Underwater life in the kingdom is really unexplored and can play a major role in increasing tourism as well."
Yaheya has previously dived in Dubai and Yanbu. The video show three men waving flags and praying 140 feet underwater.
"The best time to go diving around Jeddah is February and March as visibility is great around at that time of the year. The temperature of the water is also perfect," Yaheya said.
