Fazal Ahmad, an Afghan national and former asylum seeker who moved to Glasgow several years ago before setting up his own business, died in hospital on Saturday, two days after tests confirmed he had the tropical disease.
He returned to Glasgow from Afghanistan last Tuesday, via a connecting flight from Dubai, and was initially treated in isolation at Gartnavel General Hospital's Brownlee Centre, which spec- ialises in infectious disease.
The 38-year-old mechanic was then transferred to Lon- don's Royal Free Hospital, where he died on Saturday.
The body of Mr Ahmad, who had been in Afghanistan for his brother's wedding, was brought back to Glasgow ahead of his funeral yesterday.
About 200 mourners packed into the city's Central Mosque to pay their respects.
Mohammed Asif, acting chairman of the Scottish Afghan Society, paid tribute to his friend, who leaves behind a wife and a young son.
"The whole community has lost a very hard-working, nice guy," he said after the service.
"He helped the community and was an active member of the Afghan Society.
"He was young and was a family man who worked hard for his family.
"Everybody is shocked and saddened."
Mr Asif said Mr Ahmad came to Britain seeking asylum in 2006 and lived with his wife and son, aged about five, in Glasgow, where he went on to own a garage in the East End.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are continuing to monitor two airline passengers who may have had contact with Mr Ahmad on the Emirates flight to Glasgow.
