KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor (pic), in his Maulidur Rasul message on Thursday (Oct 29), urged the people to face the Covid-19 pandemic with patience, and to work together instead of finger-pointing.

He said while this year’s celebration would not be like previous years due to the virus outbreak, the spirit of the celebration could still be observed in daily lives.

“The new norm in celebrating Maulidur Rasul is by urging among Muslims to reflect and emulate the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as we face the Covid-19 challenges in the country and especially in Sabah.

“The Prophet Muhammad reminded us to face tests and challenges by practising patience and by cooperating, while making efforts to endure as we put our trust in Allah.

“In facing this global pandemic, we must not panic and must avoid finding fault in each other, ” he said, adding that Muslims must adopt the Islamic teachings of helping each other out irrespective of religious or ethnic backgrounds.

This includes adhering to the regulations and directives from authorities and supporting frontliners in the fight against Covid-19.

“One of the Rasulullah SAW teachings is hygiene and avoiding elements that could harm ourselves and others.

“The Covid-19 virus has taught us how important it is to maintain cleanliness in our house and our surroundings," said Hajiji.
