QUARANTINE IS HARAAM

Referring to the haraam kuffaar act of quarantine, the Qur’aan Majeed states:
“What! Have you not seen those people who came out (fleeing) from their homes while they were thousands, in fear of Maut (death)? Then Allah said to them: “Perish!” Then (after their death) He resurrected them.” (Al-Baqarah, Aayat 242) 
In bygone times, during the era of Bani Israaeel, a severe plague spread in a city / town. The inhabitants consisting of approximately 10,000 persons, for fear of contracting the disease and death, fled from the town and went into quarantine in a valley in between two mountains. Their cowardly flight and attempt to flee from Maut invited the Wrath of Allah Ta’ala. Allah Ta’ala exterminated the entire community. Not a single soul escaped death. They had fled the plague, went into self-imposed quarantine with the notion of saving themselves from death. They miserably failed.
“Say (O Muhammad!): ‘Verily, Maut from which you are fleeing will overtake you, then you will be returned to (Allah), the Knower of the Unseen and Seen. Then He will inform you of what you were doing (on earth).” (Al-Jumuah, Aayat 8)
