*THE TEST OF CORONA VIRUS.**A pest is a test from Allah Ta`ala. Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas`ood r.a. said that it is a test for the ones who are fully in the epicentre of the sickness, to believe that Allah Ta`ala that will decide their death, not the sickness. So stay in that place without running away from it with the same conviction on Allah Ta`ala. And also it is a test for the ones outside the epicentre, to believe that Allah Ta`ala can give them death even without that sickness. A test for those in the afflicted areas not to move from there. And a test for those outside the epicentre, not to come inside.**A sickness is a means of purification and cleaning our sins. Our beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said told us not to swear or talk bad of fever. Because fever cleans one from sins.(Muslim)*

صحيح مسلم – (12 / 452)حَدَّثَنَا الْحَجَّاجُ الصَّوَّافُ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الزُّبَيْرِ حَدَّثَنَا جَابِرُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِأَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ دَخَلَ عَلَى أُمِّ السَّائِبِ أَوْ أُمِّ الْمُسَيَّبِ فَقَالَ مَا لَكِ يَا أُمَّ السَّائِبِ أَوْ يَا أُمَّ الْمُسَيَّبِ تُزَفْزِفِينَ قَالَتْ الْحُمَّى لَا بَارَكَ اللَّهُ فِيهَا فَقَالَ لَا تَسُبِّي الْحُمَّى فَإِنَّهَا تُذْهِبُ خَطَايَا بَنِي آدَمَ كَمَا يُذْهِبُ الْكِيرُ خَبَثَ الْحَدِيدِ *The purest city after Makkah Mukarramah is Madinah Munawarah. Madinah Munawwarah has the peculiarity to cleans its citizens from nifaaq/hypocrisy and also from sins. Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam compared Madinah Munawwarah as a fire furnace that cleans metals from its impurities. Once a Bedouin embraced Islam and stayed in Madinah. He fell sick. So he wanted to-Na`uzubillah leave Islam and Madinah. But Rasouloullah SAW refused him and said that-he should make Sabr-because Madinah Munawwarah is purifying him from his filths-Muslim.*صحيح مسلم – (7 / 130)عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْمُنْكَدِرِ عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِأَنَّ أَعْرَابِيًّا بَايَعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَأَصَابَ الْأَعْرَابِيَّ وَعْكٌ بِالْمَدِينَةِ فَأَتَى النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ يَا مُحَمَّدُ أَقِلْنِي بَيْعَتِي فَأَبَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ثُمَّ جَاءَهُ فَقَالَ أَقِلْنِي بَيْعَتِي فَأَبَى ثُمَّ جَاءَهُ فَقَالَ أَقِلْنِي بَيْعَتِي فَأَبَى فَخَرَجَ الْأَعْرَابِيُّ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّمَا الْمَدِينَةُ كَالْكِيرِ تَنْفِي خَبَثَهَا وَيَنْصَعُ طَيِّبُهَا*So not all sicknesses are indesirable. Some are desirable to purify us from sins and bad qualities.**By making sabr in sicknesses, we may attain high grades in front of Allah Ta`ala. A sahabah named Imraan bin Huswein r.a. suffered from hemorrhoides and made sabr. He said that due to his sickness, Angels used to make him salaam-Muslim:*
  صحيح مسلم – (6 / 266)عَنْ حُمَيْدِ بْنِ هِلَالٍ عَنْ مُطَرِّفٍ قَالَقَالَ لِي عِمْرَانُ بْنُ حُصَيْنٍ أُحَدِّثُكَ حَدِيثًا عَسَى اللَّهُ أَنْ يَنْفَعَكَ بِهِ إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جَمَعَ بَيْنَ حَجَّةٍ وَعُمْرَةٍ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَنْهَ عَنْهُ حَتَّى مَاتَ وَلَمْ يَنْزِلْ فِيهِ قُرْآنٌ يُحَرِّمُهُ وَقَدْ كَانَ يُسَلَّمُ عَلَيَّ حَتَّى اكْتَوَيْتُ فَتُرِكْتُ ثُمَّ تَرَكْتُ الْكَيَّ فَعَادَ*So sickness is not that bad. But we should not ask for sickness. Rather we should ask for well being/aafiyah. Because of our weakness, we should ask Allah Ta`ala health.**And if you happen to fall sick, then no need to be broken or thinking of suicide. Because, there are virtues of when a muslim fall sick, then if you visit him, you would find Allah Ta`ala by him-Muslim. Although during this plague sickness one should not visit the sick due to contagious issues. But this virtue is for the sick himself, for him not to be despondent.*

صحيح مسلم – (12 / 440)- حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ حَاتِمِ بْنِ مَيْمُونٍ حَدَّثَنَا بَهْزٌ حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ عَنْ ثَابِتٍ عَنْ أَبِي رَافِعٍ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ يَقُولُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ يَا ابْنَ آدَمَ مَرِضْتُ فَلَمْ تَعُدْنِي قَالَ يَا رَبِّ كَيْفَ أَعُودُكَ وَأَنْتَ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ قَالَ أَمَا عَلِمْتَ أَنَّ عَبْدِي فُلَانًا مَرِضَ فَلَمْ تَعُدْهُ أَمَا عَلِمْتَ أَنَّكَ لَوْ عُدْتَهُ لَوَجَدْتَنِي عِنْدَهُ*I already explained that some sicknesses are made contagious by Allah Ta`ala. So plague, leprosy, lung tuberculosis, Covid-19, etc are those contagious diseases that Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said we should stay away from-Musannaf Abdur razzaaq.*
 مصنف عبد الرزاق – (10 / 405)
أخبرنا عبد الرزاق عن معمر عن أيوب وخالد بن أبي قلابة أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال فروا من المجذوم فراركم من الأسد
*But if we happen to be in an area that is afflicted with sicknesses, then we should not leave from there. And if we happen to be outside an epicentre, then one should not travel to there-Bukhari.*
صحيح البخاري – (18 / 4)عن ابن شهاب عن عبد الله بن عامر أن عمر خرج إلى الشأم فلما كان بسرغ بلغه أن الوباء قد وقع بالشأم فأخبره عبد الرحمن بن عوفأن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إذا سمعتم به بأرض فلا تقدموا عليه وإذا وقع بأرض وأنتم بها فلا تخرجوا فرارا منه*So, please next time a virus outbreak is announced, one should not conduct any political or religious assembly, nor should we travel to such proned places, and if you happen to be already there, then do not come back in an area where there is no outbreak.**Finally, know that there was sicknesses around Madinah before Islam. People coming to Madinah always got fever. But when Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam came, he made du`as: O Allah! Take out the fever sickness from Madinah to juhfah-Bukhari.*صحيح البخاري – (19 / 467)عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالتقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم اللهم حبب إلينا المدينة كما حببت إلينا مكة أو أشد وانقل حماها إلى الجحفة اللهم بارك لنا في مدنا وصاعنا*So Covid-19 is a test from Allah. To see if we are patient believers. So Sabr, Salaah, Sadaqahs and Duas**will Insha Allah remedy our situation.*
