Assalaamu Alaikum Warahmatullaahie Wabarakaatuh In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
All praises are due to the Almighty Allah in all His attributes and universal blessings upon the Leader of mankind, the beloved Nabi Muhammad (SAW)
The Islamic Medical Association of South Africa [IMASA], hereby presents an updated statement to the rapidly evolving situation in South Africa and has set forth guidance on managing the risk of crowding and the appropriate utilization of masaajid. However, we are concerned that despite significant efforts from many masaajid to comply, a large number of them have not accepted the guidance provided and continued to schedule prayers. The risk of crowding and spread of the virus is extremely concerning.
All praise is due to Allah and may His choicest salutations continue to descend upon our Master and Leader Mohammed (saw).
“And if Allah touches you with harm, there is none who can remove it but He…” (10:107)
We normally stand in awe of giant threats like earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. However, the coronavirus spreads from something so small, so miniscule like respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Glory be to Allah Who can immobilize millions of people around the globe simply by means of tiny droplets invisible to the eye.
