The Prophet (PBUH) said in a famous Hadith that you should tie your camel, and then turn to Allah. This means that we shouldn’t leave everything up to dua and prayer. We should use our common sense and take precautions and then pray to Allah as well. This is a very pertinent Hadith in the context of the ongoing pandemic. The coronavirus has infected more than 50 million at the time of writing, with over a million people succumbing to the deadly virus.
Hence, we should utilize some of the common-sense measures that will help us to at least provide some basic protection for ourselves. Among them include following the laws of the land, wherever we may be located. The Prophet (PBUH) told us to obey the laws of the land as long as they don’t contradict Allah’s laws, and laws regarding coronavirus and SOPs are related to the health and well-being of the public. Furthermore, we should take extra precautions and try to stay home as much as possible until Allah wills the pandemic to be over. Last but not least, we can learn and recite some of the duas for Coronavirus pertaining to good health in Islam.

How dangerous is the coronavirus disease?
Although for most people COVID-19 causes only mild illness, it can make some people very ill. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or diabetes) appear to be more vulnerable.
Does consuming alcohol kill Covid-19?
Consuming alcohol will not destroy the virus, and its consumption is
likely to increase health risks if a person becomes infected with the
virus. Alcohol (at a concentration of at least 60% by volume) works as a
disinfectant on your skin, but it has no such effect within your system
What is isolation during the Protection Against Covid-19 disease pandemic?
Separation of the affected person or suspected of being infected from other healthy people for the duration of the disease infection inappropriate places and health conditions, in order to prevent the transmission of the infection.
Will climate change make the COVID-19 pandemic worse?See full answer
There is no evidence of a direct connection between climate change and the emergence or transmission of COVID-19 disease. As the disease is now well established in the human population, efforts should focus on reducing transmission and treating patients.
When are people infected with COVID-19 contagious?
Whether or not they have symptoms, infected people can be contagious and the virus can spread from them to other people.
Laboratory data suggest that infected people appear to be most infectious just before they develop symptoms (namely 2 days before they develop symptoms) and early in their illness. People who develop the severe disease can be infectious for longer.
While someone who never develops symptoms can pass the virus to others, it is still not clear how frequently this occurs and more research is needed in this area.
Muslims must take the coronavirus pandemic seriously. In the beginning, many just viewed it as something far away that wouldn’t affect them. Then as the infection spread, people began to realize its severity. However, attitudes have relaxed once again, which isn’t good. The pandemic remains a major threat to the lives and well-being of humans. Hence, we must take all the safety measures and follow the required SOPs given by the government. Additionally, we should recite the various duas for protection from the coronavirus pandemic. With Allah’s protection, we will be able to survive the pandemic, however long it lasts.
