ABU DHABI, 11th September, 2016 (WAM) — H.H. Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, prayed on Sunday for the well-being of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan who “laid solid foundations for love.”
In a series of tweets on his account on the microblogging site, on the occasion of the Day of Arafat, the spiritual culmination of the annual Muslim Hajj pilgrimage, which falls today, he wrote, “We pray to Allah Almighty to protect President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. He laid solid foundations for love. He is a source of determination for the intrepid heroes who are defending our country.”
“On the Day of Arafat, our hearts pray to Allah and hope that the values of tolerance and coexistence would prevail, human solidarity would become stronger and the pilgrims would have a safe return home,” he added.
Sheikh Hazza described the occasion, when millions of pilgrims from around the world gather from dawn to dusk at Mount Arafat near Makkah to pray for forgiveness, as a “great moment in a great day and a great month.”
