ISLAMABAD: President Arif Alvi on Thursday said that Youm e Ruju Elallah will be observed on Friday (tomorrow) and supplication would be made to Allah (SWT) to eradicate the pandemic from the world.
“On Youm e Dua, supplication would be made to Allah (SWT) to protect us from Coronavirus. People will be more vigilant in markets as well, if Ulema instructed them to do so. Coronavirus has become active again in cold weather,” Arif Alvi said in a statement after holding a virtual meeting with Ulema.
He said Minber and Mehrab had played a crucial role in spreading awareness. He asked worshippers to make ablution at home, wear masks, and maintain social distancing in a bid to contain the spread of the virus.
President Arif Alvi said Ulema had expressed reservation over the second wave of coronavirus.
He said Ulema have reaffirmed to adopt the SOPs issued for mosques on April 17. He said the Ulema observed that politicians also need to demonstrate unity against the pandemic and postpone their public gatherings.
