The footage of the prayer led by Imam Arafat at the Musholla As-Syuhada Mosque was being broadcast live on Facebook on Sunday night when a magnitude 7.0 natural disaster hit the neighboring Lombok Island.
The quake occurred in North Lombok district at a depth of 12 kilometers, according to the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG).
It also reported a 5.4-magnitude quake at 2.21am on Tuesday, close to the site of Sunday's 6.9-magnitude quake.
People ran out onto roads in panic as buildings collapsed in Lombok.
No further information was available at the time of writing.
Aid agencies say the number is likely to increase dramatically as they gain access to the worst-hit parts of the island.
Rescue teams search for victims in the rubble caused by an quake at a mosque in North Lombok, Indonesia.

Villagers and relatives prayed outside a tent where the girl's body lay inside covered in a white cloth.
"We are still waiting for assessments from some of the more remote areas in the north of the island, but it is already clear that Sunday's natural disaster was exceptionally destructive", said Mr Rassi.
At a shelter in hard-hit Kayangan, new mother Rusnah, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, said she needed basic supplies for her children.
The shallow 6.9-magnitude quake Sunday levelled tens of thousands of homes, mosques and businesses across Lombok, with relief agencies only just starting to reach survivors in some of the worst-hit areas four days later.
Indonesia is prone to earthquakes as it is situated in the "Ring of Fire", an area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where many tremors and volcanic eruptions occur. "Overnight the children are cold, they don't have blankets or proper clothing to keep warm", said Hana Yulia, an emergency response worker from the group now in Lombok.

With hospitals and clinics also affected, numerous injured have had to be treated in the open air or in makeshift clinics. Authorities are still searching through the rubble left behind on Lombok Island, still hoping to find survivors.
