We will be able to dispatch the dates after the courier services start their operations again, insha’Allah. If anyone can manage to pick up the dates then the dates are available in Multan.
Update (17-03-20): Assalamualikum, the dates for outside Multan/Rawalpindi/Islamabad have reached Multan and are ready for dispatch but due to coronavirus concerns, Bilal Daewoo and Leopard Courier wants to spray some medicine on the dates before dispatch. We are not comfortable with it as we are not sure how it would affect the dates.
