KUALA LUMPUR – In the midst of the increasingly worrying Covid-19 pandemic in the country, Director-General of Health, Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah continued to motivate and advise the frontliners.
In his Facebook post, Noor Hisham advised the frontliners to begin their work by focussing on serving Allah so that their burdens would be lightened.
“I urge the frontliners to ensure that we set our intentions to serve Allah SWT before starting our daily work. InshaAllah, our work burdens would be lightened and after we have worked hard, let us pray and place our trust on Allah SWT. Our life and death is determined by Allah SWT,” he wrote.
He also quoted a phrase from the al-Quran, that each living thing would surely return to its Creator and a phrase from the Al-Baqarah which means, ‘truly, we belong to Allah and to Allah we would return.’
Noor Hisham’s post received various reactions from the netizens who also prayed for the frontliners to be granted the strength to face the pandemic.
The recent Covid-19 cases saw an increment to 4,029 new daily cases on 17 January, a new record high for the country.
The government is currently implementing the Movement Control Order (MCO) in six states namely, Penang, Selangor, Federal Territories (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Labuan), Melaka, Johor and Sabah.
The MCO is also being implemented in Kelantan and Sibu, Selangau and Kanowit in Sarawak due to the recent hike in Covid-19 cases in those areas. –MalaysiaGazette
