“Continue with your ibadah (worship) and don’t forget to pay the zakat. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin from me, the Queen and our family,” said His Majesty.
Meanwhile, the King also reminded Malaysians to always take care of themselves, their families and the local environment besides avoiding mass gatherings and practicing social distance.
“I hope Malaysia will succeed in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Before I end my speech, the Queen and I pray that Malaysia and its people will always be blessed and live in peace and harmony,” Al-Sultan Abdullah said.
