While on board a flight one man was awakened to the sounds of a man yelling “Allahu akbar!” meaning “God is great” in Arabic. The man shouted other phrases while he stood near the exit door with his hands near or over his ears. Such a strange encounter prompted the other man to record the incident and post it to YouTube.

According to The Blaze, the video has prompted a discussion about Muslim prayer calls — and if they’re appropriate on public flights. This flight in particular was traveling from Abu Dhabi to Manila.
