HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser message

The coronavirus “is forcing us to come back to our senses”, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser has said in a message posted on her social media channels.
“Some would look at the coronavirus pandemic as a crisis, but I see it as a breakthrough that is making us realise that we were, in fact, living in a crisis long before,” she said. “A crisis that shifted our priorities in life. Is it our family or our work? Our children or our friends?
“A crisis of pursuing material things in life, until that very desire shackled us, even after we claimed to abolish slavery.”
“A crisis borne of a world that revolves around currency, where the value of people is based on how large their bank balance is, not the balance of their moral values.”
She continued, “I believe that the coronavirus, as it occupies every moment and mind, is dismantling this facade that we built up for ourselves, and forcing us to come back to our senses.
“Maybe it is a beginning.”
