Continue praying in face of pandemic, says PM on Maulidur Rasul day

KUALA LUMPUR: In conjunction with the Maulidur Rasul celebration on Thursday (Oct 29), Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin urges Muslims to continue praying as the nation faces the Covid-19 pandemic.

“This test is supposed to strengthen our faith to be more loving and be closer with the teachings of Allah SWT, who has never forgotten us as his followers,” he said in a statement on Facebook on Thursday (Oct 29).

Muhyiddin also praised the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) for its “Malaysia Berselawat” campaign.

It is a campaign where participants consisting of Malaysians are sponsored to record selawat (salutations to the Prophet) in the form of short videos shared on social media with the #SemarakCintaRasul hashtag.

“This is not just an initiative that’s good and suitable with the new normal in our daily lives, but it represents our love towards Allah by the berselawat practice.”
