Irfan told his followers that this is a time of test and opportunity to be better and to have control over one’s emotions and desires.
“This is the best Ramzan because the lockdown gives us a chance to read the Koran extensively and ponder on it’s teachings. Ramzan Mubarak to all,” he said in his video message.
