National Conference President and MP from Srinagar Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday greeted people on annual observance of Shab-e-Baraat.
Abdullah while greeting the people said Shab-e-Baraat was the night of forgiveness and atonement. “Allah almighty grants forgiveness to all those who repent on this virtuous night. It is a revered night of forgiveness and salvation. As such the entire month of Shaban is virtuous, but on the Laila-ul Baraat, the gates of salvation and forgiveness are opened by Allah for those who seek his mercy,” he said.
“Allah is only our savior and He only can redeem us from the current crises,” he said, asking people to abide by the COVID19 protocol and advisories from government.
“We are going through a grave crises, any misstep by any person can put lives of scores of people in trouble. Therefore, I would request people to heed the advisories of various government agencies. Appreciatively, and rightfully all the religious scholars have also asked people to take required steps to impede spread of the humanity’s worst ever public health nightmare. People should follow the advisories,” Abdullah said.
“Meantime, it is for affluent class to come to the rescue of have-nots. I am sure if all of us pitch in and congregate our efforts, we would easily sail through the existing crises. I express my solidarity with the families of those whose loved ones got devoured in the COVID19 crises. I pray for early recovery of all those who have tested positive for the contamination,” he said.
