“We equally beseech Him for more of His limitless favours. In particular, we request specially that He should cast away the gloom of Covid-19 with its chain of global tragedies and palpable fear. Nonetheless, we rejoice with all of our brethren on this Eid ul fitri festival. We also pray to be alive for many more of it. Ameen thuma ameen
