Multivitamins… Immune boosters… Black seed oil… Senna tea… All these – and many other substances – are currently selling like ‘hot cakes’ as people hope that these will help their bodies to resist the coronavirus. Thereafter, if one contracts the virus and falls ill, then there are many other medications that people will take and treatments that they will pursue in the effort to shake off the illness and regain good health.

However, while strengthening our bodies and immune systems, and taking medication when ill, we must not forget that these means will only be effective if Allah Ta‘ala allows, as He alone can protect us from sickness and cure us when we are ill. Hence, we must remember to turn to Him by giving sadaqah and engaging in du‘aa.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “Protect your wealth through (discharging) zakaat, treat your sick through sadaqah, and prepare for the waves of calamities through du‘aa and turning to Allah Ta‘ala in humility.” (Maraaseel Abi Dawood #105)

Sanitize the Soul

The concept of cleanliness and purity is one that is central and fundamental to Islam and Muslims. In one hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Cleanliness is half of imaan.” (Saheeh Muslim #534) Likewise, there are numerous ahaadeeth to be found that enumerate various important aspects of cleanliness and hygiene. Hence, Islam is second to none with regard to purity, and there are no people in the world who cleanse their bodies as frequently or as thoroughly as Muslims.

At present, in light of the Coronavirus epidemic, much emphasis is laid on sanitisation. Whether one is entering a grocery store, pharmacy or even a bank, one is required to first sanitize. In the same manner, many people sanitize their shoes, clothing, stationery, cell phones, shopping bags and even vehicles! However, in the case of sanitisation, the focus is merely on cleansing the surface.

وَسَارِعُوا إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ

And hasten to forgiveness from your Rabb and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v. 133)

In this verse, Allah Ta‘ala encourages us to hasten towards forgiveness. The commentators have given different explanations as to what forgiveness refers to in this verse. Some have mentioned that it refers to taubah, others have mentioned fulfilling all the fardh obligations, while others have mentioned that it refers to Islam. Nevertheless, all these explanations can be summarised as referring to righteous actions, as righteous actions are the means through which one will acquire the forgiveness and mercy of Allah Ta‘ala.

Allah Ta‘ala then mentions Jannah and describes it by mentioning that its ‘ardh (width) alone can accommodate the heavens and the earth combined. When this is the vastness of its width, then how much vaster its length must be!

(Mother of Moulana Muhammad ‘Umar Paalanpuri [rahimahullah] – Part One)

Moulana Muhammad ‘Umar Paalanpuri (rahimahullah) was an illustrious scholar and renowned daa‘ee (preacher) who was born in the year 1929.  His passion for the effort of da’wah and tableegh (an effort to rekindle the spirit of imaan in Muslims) was such that he made no less than eighty-one journeys to foreign countries for the propagation of Deen. Over and above this, Allah Ta‘ala had blessed him to perform hajj twenty times.

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed him with a captivating manner of oration. Hence, he would deliver bayaans before tens of thousands of people. Through his bayaans, multitudes would be inspired to repent from their wrongs and change the direction of their lives, and they would resolve to sacrifice their wealth, time and lives for the cause of Allah’s Deen.
