पोप फ्रांसिस की 14 मई को रोजा रखने की अपील को मिला सयुंक्त राष्ट्र का समर्थन

ईसाइयो के सबसे बड़े धर्म गुरु पोप फ्रांसिस ने कोरोना महामारी के खात्मे के लिए 14 मई को सभी धर्मों के लोगों से एक दिन का रोजा रखने और मुस्लिमों के साथ इबादतों में शामिल होने का आह्वान किया है। जिसे अब अंतराष्ट्रीय नेताओं का भी समर्थन हासिल हुआ है।

उन्होंने सभी धर्मों के लोगों को एकजुट होने, प्रार्थना करने और 14 मई को उपवास करने का आह्वान किया। पोप फ्रांसिस ने कहा कि पूरी मानवता को “मानव जाति को कोरोनोवायरस महामारी को दूर करने में ईश्वर की मदद मांगनी चाहिए। अल-अजहर मिस्र के ग्रैंड इमाम, अहमद अल-तैयब ने पोप फ्रांसिस के इस आह्वान का स्वागत किया।
मिस्र के अल-तैयब ने एक फेसबुक पोस्ट में इस पहल का स्वागत किया। उन्होंने दुनिया भर के लोगों को इस महामारी को दूर करने के लिए अल्लाह की खातिर धर्मार्थ कार्य करने के लिए आमंत्रित किया।”

वहीं पोप फ्रांसिस के आह्वान को विश्व स्तर पर जबरदस्त समर्थन मिला। यूएई के शेख मोहम्मद बिन जायद अल-नाह्यान, लेबनानी राष्ट्रपति मिशेल एउन सहित विश्व नेताओं ने कॉल का समर्थन किया है। इसके अलावा, संयुक्त राष्ट्र प्रमुख एंटोनियो गुटेरेस 14 मई को सामूहिक प्रार्थना के आह्वान का भी समर्थन करते हैं। वह कहते हैं कि वह ‘मानवता के लिए प्रार्थना’ में भाग लेंगे। ‘ गुटेरेस ने कहा, “मुश्किल समय में, हमें शांति, मानवता और एकजुटता के लिए एक साथ खड़ा होना चाहिए। कॉन्स्टेंटिनोपल बार्थोलोम्यू के इकोनामिकल पैट्रिआर्क ने भी कॉल का समर्थन किया है।

बता दें कि यूएई ने पिछले साल मानव बिरादरी की एक उच्च समिति बनाने में मदद की थी जिसमें सभी धर्मों के शीर्ष सदस्य शामिल हैं। समिति का उद्देश्य एचएफडी-ह्यूमन बिरादरी दस्तावेजों द्वारा निर्धारित सिद्धांतों और मूल्यों को लागू करना है। अब इसके स्पेन, इटली, यूएई, ब्रिटेन, बुल्गारिया, मिस्र, अमेरिका और लाइबेरिया से 11 सदस्य हैं।

Pope Francis has called people of all faiths to fast a day in Ramadan and pray to God to end the pandemic. He called the people of all faiths to unite, pray, and fast on May 14th. The entire humanity should ask “God to help humankind overcome the coronavirus pandemic,” said Pope Francis.

The Pope has called on “believers of all faiths” to unite next Thursday in a day of fasting and prayer to ask “God to help humankind overcome the coronavirus pandemic.”

The top inter-religious Higher Committee of Human Fraternity calls for worldwide prayers on May 14th. The day falls in Ramadan in which Muslims fast from dawn to dusk. Also, Egypt’s Al-Tayeb welcomed the initiative in a Facebook post.

He invited people from around the world to pray and do charitable works for the sake of Allah to lift this pandemic off.”

What Pope Francis said?
Pope Francis said, “Because prayer is a universal value, I welcome the committee’s call to believers of all faiths to be united on 14th May.”

“A day of prayer, fasting and charitable work, to pray to God to help humankind overcome the coronavirus pandemic,” he added.

Monsignor Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, an aide of Pope Francis calls May 14th a historic day. He is also a member of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity and priest in Egypt.

“It will be the first time that all humanity has united for a single goal: to pray together, each according to their faith, giving proof that faith unites, not divides,” said Gaid. He said that pandemic has ravaged the communities indiscriminately across the world.

“The virus has made us understand our fragility and the need to unite as brothers. We can’t come out of this separately,” said Gaid. COVID-19 has brought us all to our knees. But kneeling is the best position to pray,” he added.

Pope Francis and efforts of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity to unite humanity may end the discriminatory practices based on religion across the world.

Muslims, Christians, and people of all beliefs will make history in the world’s first #interfaith prayer to end the #coronavirus pandemic.

The committee says people should also pray for the scientists to find a vaccine. Meanwhile, the pandemic has proved science and faith compatible. “There is complementary. Science without faith remains without horizon, and faith without science remains without support. This is a great lesson of COVID-19,” said Gaid.

World leaders support the call
Call of Pope Francis to fast in Ramadan received overwhelming support globally.

World leaders including UAE’ Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Lebanese President Michel Aoun have supported the call. Moreover, the United Nations chief Antonio Guterres also supports the call of collective prayers on May 14th. He says he will take part in the ‘prayer for humanity’.

In difficult times, we must stand together for peace, humanity & solidarity.

I join His Holiness Pope Francis (@Pontifex) and the Grand Imam of Al Azhar Sheikh Ahmed Al Tayeb in their support for the Prayer for Humanity this 14 May – a moment for reflection, hope, and faith.

Higher Committee of Human Fraternity
UAE had helped create a Higher Committee of Human Fraternity last year which consists of top members of all the faith. The committee has an aim to apply principles and values stipulated by HFD-Human Fraternity Documents. Now it has 11 members from Spain, Italy, the UAE, Britain, Bulgaria, Egypt, America, and Liberia. Moreover, the committee seeks to achieve its goals through inter-faith communication. The committee meets religious world leaders to ‘support and spread the values of mutual respect and peaceful coexistence.’

Meanwhile, this call of Pope Francis to fast in Ramadan might help counter Islamophobia. The Islamophobes have used coronavirus to vilify Muslims globally.

Reflecting on scientific and technical progress was a focus of the Committee’s interfaith meetings that led to last year’s signing of a landmark “Document on Human Fraternity,” by Pope Francis and Dr. al-Tayeb.

Other world leaders have also endorsed the May 14 call for prayer, including Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Lebanese President Michel Aoun, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, and the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew.

On May 14, people everywhere will collectively join together in prayer for an end to coronavirus. Responding to the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity’s call, they will be united against this challenge. However our efforts play out, we need God’s grace and mercy.
