“I wish to call on you while praying during this period, and especially during the Night of Majesty, to pray for peace and security to reign and for Allah to guide the leaders and give them wisdom to work for the development of their respective countries,” he said.

He said that Muslims should also use the period to show compassion and forgiveness as well as pray for the world to surmount the challenges of conflicts and wars.
