The committee which comprises religious leaders, educational scholars and cultural leaders of various nationalities, invited believers of all faiths to make May 14th “a day for fasting, prayers, and supplications for the good of all humanity,” reported official news agency WAM.

“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 said in a statement.

It also called on people 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 further urged people to respond to this call in order 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.”

The committee was established in response to the Document on Human Fraternity signed by Pope Francis, head of the Catholic Church, and Dr. Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar.
