Covid-19: Islamic perspectives
March 8, 2020
This presentation was delivered at Masjid Omar Bin AbdulAziz at a time when the American-Muslim community was starting to realize that the Covid-19 pandemic was going to strike very close to home. Like many issues, it elicited a spectrum of responses within the community. On one hand we had the "My Imaan is strong" macho man refusing to change their routine and on the other hand the "We're all gonna die!" panic-struck 'coward' completely withdrawing from life - both quoting ahadith to back their positions. In lieu of this confusion, this presentation sought to clarify misconceptions regarding the true nature of توكّل and tribulations.
