Asalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi,
There is an initiative that is circulating on social media about a global day of fasting. It reads: Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters, Let us UNITE in supplication and ASK ALLAH (Most Merciful) to grant us a cure to save us from the Coronavirus. We invite you to join in Global Unity and have a Day of Fasting.
GLOBAL DAY OF FASTING Thursday 2nd April 2020 PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD BY SHARING THIS POST
ON THIS DAY LET US PRAY FOR:
-A CURE FOR THE VIRUS
-THAT WE WILL REACH THE MONTH OF RAMADAAN
-THAT HADJ CAN BE FULFILLED
-THAT WE MAY RETURN TO OUR MASJIDS
-AND MAY ALL THE OPRESSED MUSLIMS BE FREED
MAY ALLAH PROTECT US ALL INSHA ALLAH
*i have typed this verbatim with capitalization and spelling as it appears on the image of a hijabi making dua.
Is this permissible? I have no idea who initiated this. Thank you for any guidance and daleel.
Jazhak Allahu Kahairan,
