The Commissioner also stressed that what the health authorities have advised does not go against the religion. According to her, following the Qur’an and Sunnah, we are to stay where we are when there is disease outbreak. She therefore enjoined everyone to always put on the face mask, avoid social gatherings and stay indoors when having cold or fever.
“Anybody that sees what is happening in India will know it is a very dangerous and disheartening situation. No more space in the hospitals, no drugs and no burial grounds. What is more disturbing than to see a dead body without a place to bury it?! So, I’m pleading we should be cautious and pray to the Almighty,” she said.
In his vote of thanks, the head of the Kabala Doki community appreciated the commissioner for her kind words and for taking out time from her tight schedule to grace the occasion. He intimated the Commissioner on the impacts Al- Ummah Medical Care Clinic has had on the community providing medication at subsidized rate, free antenatal care, girl child education scholarship and promoting environmental sanitation.
