The funeral of a married father who died in the UK's first case of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) will take place on Tuesday.
Fazal Ahmad, 38, died in hospital on Saturday - two days after laboratory tests confirmed he had the disease.
He returned to Glasgow from Afghanistan last Tuesday, via a connecting flight from Dubai.
He was initially treated in isolation at Gartnavel general hospital's Brownlee Centre in Glasgow, which specialises in infectious disease, before being flown from Scotland to a high-security infectious disease unit at London's Royal Free Hospital.
His body will now be flown back to Scotland and his funeral will take place at Glasgow Central Mosque at 2pm.
His friend Mohammed Asif, acting chairman of the Scottish Afghan Society, said the community has been saddened by Mr Ahmad`s death.
He said: "Everybody is quite shocked. He was a nice guy, helpful to everybody and very pleasant.
"He was young and was a family man who worked hard for his family. It`s sad he died so young."
Mr Asif said Mr Ahmad was an Afghan national who came to Britain seeking asylum several years ago and lived with his wife and young son, aged around five or six, in Glasgow, where he owned a garage in the east end.
Mr Asif said his friend had been in Afghanistan to attend his brother's wedding in Samangan province.
