Firstly, there is no unanimity that the man was Ezekiel, but that is besides
the point right now.Now, on what basis do you presume it is merely a
vision?  The verses make no mention of a vision.  Rather, they are
describing actual happenings.

> Also see Al Qur'an 12:4 (without Bis millah as a Ayah)

This is about a vision of Prophet Yusuf.  The word "ru'yaa" (vision) is
explicitly used, and later in the surah the idea that it was not something
physcial is fortified.  I don't understand your logic here.  Are you trying
to say that since Prophet Yusuf had a vision, therefore the death and
raising up of the man who passed by the ruined city must also be a vision?
If so, then what is your proof for such a claim?

Which prayer?  And in any case, Allah is not confined to doing only what
people ask for.
