The Corona Virus which has spread over the entire world and infiltrated thousands of the people causing many deaths. It is a threat to the humanity and has affected the world mentally, physically and economically. Everyone is scared of it. Many have died and many are suffering. This Virus first was found in china. Later it reached different countries through the travelers. Now each country is suffering. As you might know that our India has over than 60 Corona Virus cases but no pertinent cure is there. The doctors are suggesting avoiding it. The schools, colleges, institutions, malls, markets and some transportation are banned to go on only to avoid this Virus. But we have to do our best as it is the responsibility of each one.
Corona Virus is nothing but an epidemic and plague which already in the past had spread and caused much death but the people in the past followed some certain guidance. Like this epidemic was introduced in the age of Hazrath Umar, the second Caliph. The prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: if there is any plague, the people of that area should not leave and the people outside should not go there.
The holy Quran says that what diseases and pain we are suffering, are because of our sins and faults. If we are good we should not be worried. “And whatever strikes you of disaster- it is for what your hands have earned: but He pardons much” (42:30) If we are bad, should know that each difficulty is the result of our actions. We believe that each thing either good or bad is passed by Allah but we have to take care of ourselves as our body is a great bounty of Allah. Hence the experts have prescribed some precautions to follow.
To take bath, clean the bed and daily used up things and ourselves are a part of Islam that ensures a healthy and hygienic body and removes the virus and bacteria. In this situation we have to wash our hands just after touching anything. As this virus is transitive, always we should be careful while dealing and transacting. No doubt that Wuzu is playing very important role to clean our body. A person making Wuzu cannot suffer any outward Virus or diseases. Exactly we do not know who is victim and that is why we should not visit crowded area like Malls and markets because there may be a person suffering from that Virus. Attending the functions and meetings may also cause problem. The Virus is known for infiltrating the body soon that is why as to avoid we should not play collectively in the ground and should not go to dirty area. Over all these precautions, five times Salah is necessary. It is only the way to get rid of Virus. Namaz is not only a spiritual action but it has proved more beneficial for our whole body. If we are offering Namaz punctually, it means we are safe.
We should read this Dua every time اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْبَرَصِ، وَالْجُنُوْنِ، وَالْجُذَامِ، وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الْأَسْقَامِ
O Allah! I seek your protection from vitiligo, insanity, leprosy and from all bad diseases (Al-Hadith)
Everything is from Allah and Allah Himself is saying to escape and keep away from harmful things. This virus has come as I know only through the Quran because of our sins. Practically we are bad and daily we commit the sins that displease Allah that is why He is sending epidemic and Viruses
