KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah have extended their 2022 New Year’s Day greetings and prayers for the wellbeing of the people and the country.

"May we be protected from all forms of calamities and be blessed with prosperity and everlasting unity and harmony,” Their Majesties said in a post on the Istana Negara’s official Facebook page Friday (Dec 31).

Unlike before, the eve of the New Year was filled with solat hajat and doa selamat programmes as a sign of respect and sympathy for the people affected by the recent massive floods.

It also followed the announcement made by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob to cancel the 2022 New Year celebration. - Bernama
