Over one night, the entire world was devastated by an unseen creature called Corona. A virus that was a reason of a complete shutdown of the most powerful empires in the whole world like the US, UK, and china. People are countlessly dying everywhere. Financial breakdown is happening in a blink of an eye. Curfew is all over the world. Hospitals is in full capacity and doctors trying hopelessly to save as much lives as possible. It’s time to check Coronavirus, between Materialism and Islam.
The Eternal Questions!
This sudden change in the structure of the world, had led to a complete unorganized picture, leaving humans all alone questioning themselves with a list of eternal questions!
With all the technology and hygienic techniques that the world has reached, it stands completely powerless in front of a small virus.
The Reality of The Modern Civilization
Sheikh Ahmad Sief – A modern Islamic scholar- puts us close at hand from the facts that we insist on neglecting, saying:
“And now while you are watching the modern civilization of the world, with its research centers, and its powerful weapons in the time of “knowledge and globalization” unable to face a worthless virus. Only then, you can understand the divine speech that Allah the Al-Mighty has directed to the old polytheists that lived back in the time of Muhammad -peace and blessings be upon him- challenging them, and subjoining disability to them!”
What a Challenge!
Then he continued, “That challenge back then, wasn’t by revealing the great cosmic signs in the universal kingdom of the heavens and earths, nor was it by the tremendous power that Allah has placed in some of His creatures. It wasn’t even by the miracles that hacked all the rules of the math and physics. But instead, Allah has addressed them with the disability of their lords in comparison to one of His weakest creatures: a fly!
“O people, an example is presented, so listen to it. Indeed, those you invoke besides Allah will never create [as much as] a fly, even if they gathered together for that purpose. And if the fly should steal away from them a [tiny] thing, they could not recover it from him. Weak are the pursuer and pursued” [Qur’an 22 – 731] (1)
And here it is the corona virus paralyzing the movement of airplanes, schools, trading, markets worldwide. Although it is even less than a fly in creation, so who could recover it from Him?”
The words of the sheikh have ended herein.
Coronavirus Between Materialism & Islam
If it’s not the proper time for us to think for a while now, how could all the materialism we live in be defeated in just few days harvesting souls and economies, then when?!
Corona was a clear message from Allah the Al Mighty (the creator of the heavens and the earths), that this universe is totally out of our control. As well as, that it has a creator who can not to be defeated, nor challenged. Obviously, it has come to tell us that all the modernization we live in is just a mirage. And that only faith is the thing that makes sense in all of these equations.
