"The doctors are considering a heart surgery for Tok Guru (as Nik Aziz is fondly called) in the next two days, after his condition stabilises" he said in a telephone interview.
This was the first time the 72-year-old mursyidul aam, or spiritual leader of PAS, had a heart attack.
Husam said all members of Nik Aziz's family were at his bedside except his son, Nik Adli, who was in detention in Kamunting, Perak.
He said well wishers should pray for Nik Aziz's full recovery
