COVID 19 [aka Coronavirus]

As a Muslim what can I learn from it?

  • A plague or an epidemic is only effective as much as Allah Ta’alaa allows it to be.
  • Previously plagues were unleashed as a general punishment upon rebellious nations. However for the Muslims of the Ummah of Nabi (saw) it is a form of mercy. Thus a believer who succumbs to a plague will be granted the status of a Shaheed. [Bukhari]
  • As we get closer to the end of times, promiscuity and shameless acts will predominate over societies and that will lead to the onset of plagues, pandemics and strange illness’. [Ibn Majah]
  • Do not visit an area, or flee from a place which has been affected. [Excerpt of a lengthy Hadeeth in Sahih
  • Bukhari]

    What can I do to safeguard myself from it?

    Dua: Ask Allah Ta’alaa to protect us from all debilitating illness’ and it’s causes. Rasulullah (saw) taught us the following Dua. Learn, practice it and propagate it.

    اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ الْبَرَصِ وَالْجُنُونِ وَالْجُذَامِ وَمِنْ سَيِّئْ الْأَسْقَامِ

    Allahumma inni a’audhu bika minal-barasi, wal-jununi, wal judhami, wa sayyi’il-asqaam.
    Oh Allah I seek your refuge from vitiligo, mental derangement, leprosy all serious illness.

    Keep personal hygiene at an optimal level. Nabi (saw) has advised us to:

    • Wash Hands. [regularly] [Bukhari]
    • Cover the mouth when sneezing and yawning. [Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi]
    • Cover food utensils.

    Add a few drops of Blackseed Oil to honey water and drink regularly as it will fortify the immune system.

    Use Qust Hindi (Indian Costus. Availabe on ebay & amazon etc.) for lung related conditions and/or for catarrh and a sore throat. Inhale it (vapour) or make a paste consisting of of Qust Hindi, 3 drops of Blackseed oil and honey and place in the side of the mouth buccal) until it is gradually swallowed with saliva. Nabi (saw) has said that Qust al-Hindi has 7 medicinal applications. [Bukhari]

    Supplement Vitamin C intake. (one may use the powder form) (

    Proactive Approach

    If one does not feel too well, then it would be good practice :

    • To isolate oneself at home. The typical symptoms are: a cough, a high temperature and/or shortness of breath.
    • Do remember these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.
    • Perform Salaah at home and avoid public gatherings. Rasulullah (saw) has said “The one that is ill should not be left amidst the healthy”. [Muslim]
    • Do not forward or spread panic by sending out unverified messages
    • Read about the “Plague of Amwaas”.

    If you or someone you know has travelled back from one of the restricted Category 1 regions/areas affected and is feeling unwell, self-isolate and call NHS 111 immediately. Do not visit a doctor’s surgery or a hospital, and stay away from others.

    May Allah Ta’alaa keep everyone safe and healthy.
