NSCIA Declares Today For Nationwide Prayers Against COVID-19



The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and Assembly of Muslims in Nigeria has called for prayers today (Thursday) to end the COVID – 19 pandemic “and rid all mankind from its devastative effects.”

The call for prayers was at the instance of the Supreme Committee for Human Fraternity, whose membership consists of the highest religious bodies in the world.

The Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, and His Holiness Pope Francis, head of the Catholic Church in the Vatican are said to be the initiators of the call for prayers among other religious bodies worldwide.

A statement issued yesterday night by the chairman, Fatwa Committee of the NSCIA and chairman of AMIN, Sheikh Shariff Ibrahim Saleh Al-Hussaini, said the United Nations Secretary-General had endorsed and blessed the move, as well as most Muslim scholars and leaders worldwide.
