Your Excellency,

          At this difficult and sad moment for the Egyptian Nation, we would like to reiterate our unconditional commitment to the national unity, and our unreserved confidence in the harmonious coexistence of all the Egyptian citizens, that You personally guarantee for the welfare and prosperity of Egypt. We stand by Your side in Your effort to eradicate the social disease of terrorism, to defend the territorial integrity of Egypt, and to avert any external or internal attempt to derail the national effort towards prosperity.

           Fervently praying to the All Mighty and Most Merciful God to protect and save Egypt from any harm, we wish Your Excellency to guide the Egyptian people far from the regional turbulence to the safe haven of peace in the name of God.

Fervently praying to God,
