Day of “Prayer and Supplication”

14 May 2020

People of faith around the world are encouraged to pray for global relief. 

In response to the Covid-19 crisis, the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity has called for a day of “prayer and supplication” to God for an end to the pandemic. 

“Each one, from wherever they are and according to the teachings of their religion, faith, or sect, should implore God to lift this pandemic off us and the entire world, to rescue us all from this adversity”. In calling for worldwide prayer, the Committee says.

The Higher Committee of Human Fraternity

On February 4, 2019, Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar met in Abu Dhabi to sign the Document on Human Fraternity—a joint statement calling for the reconciliation of people of goodwill in service of universal peace.  With the support of the United Arab Emirate the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity was formed.
