The Higher Committee of Human Fraternity has invited people around the globe for prayers to God for an end to coronavirus pandemic in the world on 14th May.
The Committee called on believers of any faiths to consider May 14 “a day for fasting, prayers, and supplications for the good of all humanity”.
The committee said, “Each one, from wherever they are and according to the teachings of their religion, faith, or sect, should appeal to God to lift this pandemic off us and the entire world, to rescue us all from this adversity.”
The committee has invited people all around the world to ask God “to inspire scientists to find a cure that can turn back this disease, and to save the whole world from the health, economic, and human repercussions of this serious pandemic”.
It urged “all religious leaders and peoples around the world to respond to this call for humanity and together beseech God Almighty to safeguard the entire world, to help us overcome this pandemic, to restore security, stability, healthiness, and prosperity, so that, after this pandemic is over, our world will become a better place for humanity and fraternity than ever before”.
According to the local news, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity was created last year as a concrete response to the Document Human Fraternity. Pope Francis, Head of the Catholic Church, and Dr. Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar had signed the Fraternity.
