Don't be sad, find the blessing in Covid-19 crisis, says king



The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah said that Muslims in the country should not be upset and sad for not being able to celebrate Aidilfitri this year but to take the opportunity to find the blessing in the situation which resulted from the ongoing global Covid-19 crisis.

Despite having to observe Ramadan and celebrate Syawal with various new guidelines and restrictions, His Majesty said the Muslims should still be grateful and happy as they were still blessed with good health and the opportunity to be with their loved ones on the first day of Syawal.
