The Hadith-Sharif says: “Indeed, Allah (with the prayer of the good generation) raises the rank of the servant. Then the person asks, “Why is this?”. Allah answers: “Because of the prayers of your descendants.” We hope that through our prayer, the spirit of our ancestors will be benevolent. Happiness and prosperity to the country and the people,” he said.
