Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid Srinagar, headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who is under house arrest for the last one year, has greeted the Millat-e-Islamia in general and the Muslims in Jammu & Kashmir in particular on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, and urged those performing Qurbani to adhere to SOPs and other precautionary measures while following the Sunnat-e-Ibraheem (AS).
In a statement, the Anjuman said, “Owing to coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and lockdown therein, like Eid-ul-Fitr, large religious gatherings are not possible on the Eid-ul-Adha too; however, those intending to follow the Sunnat-e-Ibraheem (AS) by sacrificing animal(s) must strictly adhere to all precautionary measures, SOPs and cleanliness.”
The Anjuman said that the Sunnat-e-Khaleeli (AS) teaches us the lesson of selflessness and sacrifice. “Given the prevailing unfortunate situation of the nation and Covid-19, the situation demands that we must celebrate the festival with austerity,” it said.
The Anjuman has also stressed upon the affluent people to take care of the much needy and destitute in their vicinity so that they also join the Eid celebrations. It also urged people to continue praying for refuge from the deadly virus and completely follow health advisories to save themselves their families and the society from the havoc the present outbreak has wreaked upon humanity.
