Muhammad Rajab’s so desperate to get to Saudi, not even hospital will stop him!
Young Egyptian actor, Muhammad Rajab, is clearly the pious type, deciding to spend his vacation going on a religious piligrimage (Umra) to Saudi Arabia, rather than sunning himself in Sharm El Sheikh or heading out to the clubs of Beirut.
But he didn't appreciate that halfway to Mecca his trip would be stopped by his own bad health. The star was admitted to hospital this week with a severe case of high blood pressure.
Doctors have told him to stay home and avoid any strenuous activity but that won't put Rajab off his trip to Saudi. The star said he would be back on the road to Mecca just as soon as the doctors would allow.
