The notion that diseases are contagious is a result of our worship of the means. No matter what present day research may say, the
research of the Sharī‛at is that the One who caused the first person to fall ill has caused the second one to fall ill as well. It is possible that others in the same house may also succumb to that illness. However, if our gaze is on the Absolute Power, then is it not better to attribute that illness to divine will than to the means? Is the will of Allāh ta‛ālā not even equal to the effect of means? We seek refuge in Allāh ta‛ālā.
The fact of the matter is that every person who is weak in his faith will rationalize his worship of the means by saying: “I do not deny the power of Allāh ta‛ālā but it is His norm that when a contagious disease enters a house, it is also passed on to others in that house.” The tauhīd of a Muslim demands that he attributes every single thing to the will of Allāh ta‛ālā. When this is realized, the means will become inconsequential in his sight. And if he has been blessed with full confidence in Allāh ta‛ālā, then the mysteries behind the effects of the means will be fully exposed to him.

Jazak Allah Khayr for your insight! This is true whatever Allah wills is what takes place. However, we should still be aware of protecting ourselves and “tying our camel” (doing our part) in conjunction with making dua that Allah protects us. Anas ibn Malik reported: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, should I tie my camel and trust in Allah, or should I leave her untied and trust in Allah?” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Tie her and trust in Allah.”

hadith says sickness like plague are a mercy for the believer and a punishment for the kuffar. sickness is from Allah and so is the cure. if you don’t have the virus then Allah is protecting you from it. if you have it then Allah is forgiving your sins. if you die from it then you died shaheed which is the best death and you go straight to jannat. the protection that can be taken is those things which are found in hadith. not face masks and social distancing etc. hadith says if you pray fajr (in the masjid with jamaat) you are under the protection of Allah for the whole day. this is the protection that we need, not a face mask and social distancing. the muslim has nothing to worry about regarding this virus.
I am fasting. Wishing you peace and jannat-ul-firdous!
Salaam alaikum. However, Are we “Tying our camel” to a truth or a lie? The covid-19 virus does not exist! The Prophet (As) Said: La Adwa: Disease is not contagious: The Hadith of Adwa is the Dawah to the world. It’s practice would have prevented the scam, genetic modification -the vaccine (slavery) and possible deaths of millions of people. Science is just catching up now but we disbelieved in what Islam has taught us. https://sunnah.com/tirmidhi:1001

There is no virus to be protected from. It has never been isolated or proven to exist: It’s a lie and hoax. The injection / shot (it is not a vaccine) is the poison and “virus”. I do not have the power to make you sick, you do not have the power to make me sick. It’s divine decree. So “taking the means” becomes shirk when it violates the laws of Islam. Think of how silly it is. There are countless microbes all around us, on us and in us. What sense does social distancing or face masks make. We sold our logic and common sense. Viruses do not cause illness. In fact what we call illness, like coughing, sneezing runny nose, fever ect.. are the bodies way of getting rid of toxins, it is not the disease, it’s the natural cleaning process. The Shayaateen wan’t to sell drugs and vaccines that destroy this cleaning process.
ameen thumma ameen i agree one hundred percent. jazakallah for your comment
Walaikum salam warahmatulahi wabarakatu. Please reflect on this hadith Sa’d reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was reported to have said, “If you hear of a plague in a land, then do not go into it. If it happens in land where you are, then do not go out of it.”

Also, please do read this in full when you have a moment. Jazak Allah Khayr. https://islamqa.info/en/answers/45694/what-did-the-prophet-peace-and-blessings-of-allaah-be-upon-him-mean-by-no-contagion-adwa I will be leaving this conversation now do to the fact that I do not want to argue with my brothers and sisters in Islam. Wishing you both safety, health, and happiness.
Brother, let’s put the Hadith to the side for a second and took about tying the camel. Are you aware that all vaccine manufacturers are have full immunity from being sued. If the vaccines are safe and are 95% effective then why does big pharma pressure every government around the world to grant them immunity? The answer is simple, they would all be sued into bankruptcy and face criminal charges for injuring and killing millions of people. Doe’s tying one’s camel also mean injecting one’s own self with a vaccine that contains aluminum and mercury that cause autism and other scores of diseases? What about the DNA in every vaccine that is derived from aborted fetal tissue that is harvested every year from millions of murdered babies? Are you aware that it is proven by scientists that this DNA is causing many autoimmune diseases because our bodies get confused and just start attacking it’s self because it doesn’t differentiate between our DNA and the DNA of aborted fetal tissue that mingles with ours? Before tying your camel, please ask the greedy doctor to show you the vaccine insert ( package) that carries a warning message and one of the warning is may cause DEATH! Yes please tie your camel with what is halal and tayyib and not what is haram and naajis. Turn to Allah for guidance instead of Mr kill Bill gates. Wassalam
