What is the responsibility of Muslims in the wake of Coronavirus or any other epidemics like this? That is an important question as we, the Muslims know full well that everything exists for a reason. And, Allah knows the best why this disease started in the first place.
The epidemic has affected the halal industry in Japan and all over the world severly. The Japanese government has request to cancel any events including those related to the halal industry for 10 more days.
Although in Japan, the situation might not be that alarming, it has become quite bad in Italy, Iran and South Korea. The virus is fast spreading in so many other countries like wildfire.
Being Muslims, it is is our iman that no evil can affect us without the will of Allah. Insha Allah, we hope that scientists will be able to prepare a medicine to cure Coronavirus soon. But, we as Muslims have to understand that we need to increase our remembrance of Allah in times of calamities such as this one.
