King Calls on Malaysians to be Guided by Spirit of Hijrah in Fight Against Pandemic

PUTRAJAYA: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah tonight called on all Malaysians to be guided by the spirit of the Hijrah in battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

In his message in conjunction with Maal Hijrah tomorrow, His Majesty urged Malaysians to comply with the four-phase National Recovery Plan, which is a strategy to exit from the clutches of the pandemic.

At a hybrid celebration held at the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque here, Al-Sultan Abdullah said the Hijrah (migration) had given a clear guide on the meaning of sacrifice and success.

In conjunction with this year’s Maal Hijrah theme, “Manhaj Rabbani Umat Berkualiti”, His Majesty called on Malaysians to rise together to strengthen unity, maintain health and adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the sake of the country.

“I am confident that the country will emerge successfully from any crisis if everyone remains united and practises the admirable qualities of Prophet Muhammad,” said Al-Sultan Abdullah.
