Several British-Muslim celebs are rallying together to get an important message across to Muslims across the globe, reported ITV. 

Celebs including Riz Ahmed, Konnie Huq, Naughty Boy, Asad Amad, and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, have come together in a 60-second video clip, urging people in the British Muslim community to "pray from home".

With the holy month of Ramadan fast approaching, the video serves as a great message to the community that otherwise spends a majority of their time in mosques during the holy month.

The film opens with a simple declaration; "This Ramadan I'm staying at home, to protect our doctors, nurses, to protect our NHS, to protect our superheroes."

It goes on to add to the same narrative, giving reasons as to why people need to and should stay home as the pandemic ravages across the world.

"This Ramadan, I'm praying for the world but from home. You can be a lifesaver, protect our frontline, protect our NHS, protect our doctors, nurses and save lives. And you can do all of that by just staying at home and save lives," they say as the video progresses.

It also includes messages from frontline workers, including from the NHS, Met Police and London Ambulance Service.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan adds, "This Ramadan, I'm doing iftar at home to protect our NHS and save lives." The video then ends with the celebrities and medical staff wishing others a "Ramadan Mubarak".

Here's hoping that Muslims across the globe pay heed to this important message and stay home.
