Islam and Coronavirus

(Malik Suleman Naseem, Rawalpindi)

The measures taken in the 21st century to prevent the spread of infections and viruses like Corona conform almost exactly to the hygiene and infection control practices taught by our Islam and Prophet Muhammad PBUH. According to Islam “Truly, God loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves.” (Quran 2:222) In the traditions of Prophet Muhammad PBUH cleanliness is mentioned as half of faith. In this regard, Prophet Muhammad PBUH recommended to keep the body fresh and clean and Islam insists on several practices to facilitate this. Prophet Muhammad insisted that the believers wash their hands, before praying, before and after eating and upon waking up in the morning and from the traditions of Prophet Muhammad, we find evidence that clearly indicates Islam’s stance on coughing and sneezing openly. WHO and CDC also recommended this practice to prevent the diseases according to them our first line of defense against SARS is frequently hand washing, and according to the Centre for Disease Control in the USA, the virus that causes SARS is thought to be transmitted most readily by respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes so infected must cover their mouth while sneezing’s. The Things that the science recommended us today is already recommended by our beautiful religion Islam and our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH in around 1400 years ago
