Du’a’ Kumayl

اللَّهُمَّ عَظُمَ سُلْطَانُكَ وَعَلاَ مَكَانُكَ

O Allah, Your force is tremendous, Your place is lofty,

وَخَفِي مَكْرُكَ وَظَهَرَ أَمْرُكَ

And Your deception is hidden, Your command is manifest,

وَغَلَبَ قَهْرُكَ وَجَرَتْ قُدْرَتُكَ

And Your domination is overwhelming, Your power is unhindered

وَلا يُمْكِنُ الْفِرَارُ مِنْ حُكُومَتِكَ

And escape from Your governance is impossible.

We advise all to take this very seriously and take all the necessary precautions as suggested by the CDC and other public health organizations. I have included information compiled by our COVID-19 team at the bottom of this email. Please review the information provided as it is imperative that we follow them to keep ourselves and others safe.
