COVID-19 - Breaking News [OFFICIAL THREAD]
Guest posted a topic in Science/Health/EconomicsI'm asking because this is taking place in Asia, where the plague is said to ravage. It's said that the plague will not be taken as seriously as it should, so it will basically demolish Asia. At this point, we aren't really afraid of plagues anymore. After Ebola, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, Mad Cow Disease, Zika, we're just not scared anymore. We "know" that this Corona Virus won't reach us, that it will be resolved in a year MAX, that only a couple hundred will perish from it. It's this arrogance that will let the White Death destroy 1/3 of humanity. Though it's possible that Asia will overcome this plague, then in their complacency, fall to the next one. Would love to hear your thoughts
Cows, Pigs, and South Asians
Marbles posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsFor those who say nations should forget past experiences and move on, this is yet another example that collective historical memory is difficult to shake off. Other prime examples are Confederate flags inside the US Capitol about 150 years after the US civil war ended. Some Pakistanis believe polio vaccine is a foreign conspiracy to sterilise Muslims, because CIA ran a fake campaign with legit doctors who went from door to door on a spying mission while administering plain water to infants. Iran's distrust of everything and anything that comes out of the mouths of white men in suits. Etc.
Before the pandemic I had a lot of things to look forward to but then someone decided they wanted to eat live bats and sick puppies. Some things looked forward to: the chess tournament at school finishing some series a marvel movie my bday out side of my house and wayy more
On a cold winter day, I left the house for work while I really wanted to get back into bed. Cursing the heavy traffic, the crowded subway, and the noisy girls laughing loudly next to my ears, I finally arrived at my workplace, where my colleagues were talking about a thing called “Coronavirus.” At that moment, I never thought the issue might be so important. So, I ignored my colleagues and started to work. A few days later, we heard about the lockdowns, the increase in the number of deaths caused by Covid-19, aka coronavirus. People were losing their dear ones, and they were afraid to participate in their burials and funerals. I could see with my own eyes the verses of the Holy Quran that say, “The day when a man will evade his brother, his mother and his father, his spouse and his sons, each of them will have a task to keep him preoccupied on that day.” (80: 34- 37) We experienced days where everyone was worried about him/herself. Trying our best to buy and compile masks, soaps, and alcohol-based cleansers, we still thought that one of those Hollywood superpowers or the armies that save the world during the Armageddon would come and save the world. But, no one could do anything against these small viruses. That was where I could feel these verses of the Quran: “He had no party to help him, besides Allah, nor could he help himself. There, all authority belongs to Allah, the Real. He is best in rewarding, and best in requiting.” (18: 43-44) Gradually, we stopped fighting the situation. We stopped panicking. We stayed home. Works and businesses were shut down. Schools and universities were closed. Visiting relatives and friends were forbidden. We were given some time for seclusion, some time to contemplate and come up with “what if” questions. What if the Situation Remains the Same Forever? What if going to work and school and university are no more important? What if the isolation continues forever? What if the hospitals won’t let you in, even if you pay a significant amount of money? What if fame and wealth would no more be important? Do we still care about what to wear in front of others or how to talk to present ourselves as high-class people? All our routine acts become meaningless. Our social norms and behaviors are questioned. We realize that none of our worldly habits were worthy enough to hurt ourselves or others. Things should change. When Death Is Close In Coronavirus days and nights, we see ourselves so close to death. Any moment we may be diagnosed with Covid-19. When it attacks us, the worldly longings and belongings are not worthy anymore. If we are influenced by the signs and messages that God is sending us through this disease, we don’t care about collecting more wealth. We don’t think about becoming more famous. The only One left for us is God. He is the one that won’t leave us alone in the hardest situations: the one “who created me, it is He who guides me and provides me with food and drink, and when I get sick, it is He who cures me; who will make me die, then He will bring me to life” (26: 78-81). What Is God Teaching Us through the Coronavirus? By these little viruses, as coronavirus, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) teaches us the most important lessons of life. He reminds us that we were not brought into this world to take the game so seriously since we should keep in mind that “The life of this world is nothing but diversion and play, but the abode of the Hereafter is indeed Life (itself)” (29: 64), and that we live in this world for a small amount of time to be prepared for our real life in the hereafter. So, Allah tells us: “…And whatever good you do, Allah knows it. And take provision, for indeed the best provision is God wariness. So be wary of Me, O you who possess intellects!” (2: 197) The best provision is not what we keep compiling in our daily life. Money, positions and promotions, university degrees, social popularity, followers and likes on social networks, etc. are not what we have come to this world for. If they become our life priorities, we may become among those that Prophet Noah ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) mentioned them as the one “… whose wealth and children only add to his loss.” (71: 21) What is the Way Out of this Situation? In many chapters of the Quran, Allah tells us the story of people of different nations who disobeyed their prophets, and the punishment of God destroyed them. However, Allah also mentions that to get out of the hardest situations you need to turn toward God: “If the people of the towns had been faithful and Godwary, We would have opened to them blessings from the heaven and the earth. But they denied, so We seized them because of what they used to earn.” (7: 96) Therefore, the only way to escape the current situation is to return to God and live the way He wants us to live, for the best life in this world and the hereafter. Returning to God does not mean to pray to him and ask for forgiveness and keep on having the same behavior as we had. To return to God is to try to quit our bad habits, revise our false behaviors, stay away from the forbidden acts, and stay committed to the obligatory commands and orders of Allah. “Whoever is wary of Allah, He shall make for him a way out [of the adversities of the world and the Hereafter].” (65: 2) https://salamislam.com/en/lifestyle/some-lessons-coronavirus-teaches-us
raza869 posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsSalam I have been continuously thinking the Cui Bono part of this man made pathogen of Corona virus. So to determine , What benefits are these perpetrators going to accrue from this pandemic,i came across this term Surveillance Capitalism. What is deducted uptil now is that pandemic benefits the most for capitalists in their vague agendas for global governance. Also what has unfolded is that apparently democratic states have grabbed extravagant powers for public controls, lock down, curfews and even individual monitoring through cellphones negating basic rights contained in every constitution. Thus, it would be interesting and timely to understand this term Surveillance Capitalism in detail and predict probable policy making of capitalism. As a concerned citizen and Muslim seeking global justice , i am looking for learned insight into this term Surveillance Capitalism and how do you perceive globalisation of capitalism post Covid crisis??
Breaking "shelter in place"
Guest posted a topic in Off-TopicThis might be off topic but I’m not sure where to post. Would it be fair to say that breaking shelter in place and doing non-essential travel or gather right now is haram? im seeing lots of people “go back to normal” and have gatherings and parties because “everyone else is doing” (or in other words feeling FOMO) have our maraja given guidance on this?
Rich and Famous people getting Coronavirus
Ani posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsAlsalam alaikum I really wish well and health to everyone who claims to have the coronavirus... Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows if they are lying or telling the truth. I am just using common sense, not blaming anyone but I find it really really weird that all the famous people who claim to have tested positive get well eventually. Like all of them. It's not like I want them to die but this is a killer virus... And healthy young people have died of it. But from Canadian prime minister's wife to Tom Hanks and his wife... They are fine now...so..uk health minister Nadine Dorris tested positive and she is back to work now. Prince Charles, Boris... Greta Thunberg... Idris Alba.. Other uk ministers and secretaries...I think they are all lying but Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows best... I am just assuming.. They are lying so common people like us know that they are not immune....that they are with us in this... So many Iranian officials have died... But these elites keep recovering mashallah... I find all this very odd.
So what're you guys doing with all this freetime?

I do warn most of you, please avoid reading the posts on reddit regarding this, as it made my blood boil with the amount of hate comments regarding Nasrallah :'( Can anyone tell us anything, especially those of you in countries other than Australia and USA???
coronavirus Mystery Illness
yashia posted a topic in General Islamic DiscussionPeople are commenting on this video saying that they saw this very similar setting in a game, including the exact symptoms of the disease. Keep in mind, America also portrayed 9/11 in many movies before 9/11 happened. This is also known as foreshadowing and desensitisation. Instead of the minds of people rebelling their subconscious will say “we have seen this before” and the sinister evil bill gates even told us to expect a biological warfare soon. —— With that being said do not fear or worry as it is the Satan that wants us to be scared of him while he is nothing we should always realise that the plans of Satan are weak and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) plans better than anyone, so whatever happens Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is watching and surrounding all these people and will act when ready so we should be patient and perform when necessary - This is all based on the Qur'an al-Kareem. The goal of this topic is for awareness of the enemy and gives another reason to people why not to follow them: https://youtu.be/yyiHDbciNwI
Isolation of a Novel Coronavirus from a Man with Pneumonia in Saudi Arabia October 17, 2012DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1211721 A 60-year-old Saudi man was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on June 13, 2012, with a 7-day history of fever, cough, expectoration, and shortness of breath. He had no history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was receiving no long-term medications, and did not smoke. The physical examination revealed a body-mass index (the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters) of 35.1, a blood pressure of 140/80 mm Hg, a pulse of 117 beats per minute, a temperature of 38.3°C, and a respiratory rate of 20 breaths per minute. The patient's findings on chest radiography together with the clinical symptoms indicated acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with multiorgan dysfunction syndrome (MODS), similar to what has been described in severe cases of influenza and SARS.19-21 These pneumonic changes did not respond to antibacterial treatment.22 The patient was treated with oseltamivir for the possibility of infection with the H1N1 swine flu virus. Hematologic changes were evident in this patient in the form of lymphopenia, neutrophilia, and late thrombocytopenia. Abnormal hematologic variables were also quite common among patients with SARS. Lymphopenia was the most common finding in a cohort of 157 patients with SARS. In those patients, postmortem findings showed lymphopenia in various lymphoid organs with no features of bone marrow failure or reactive hemophagocytic syndrome.23 The patient also had progressive impairment of renal function, similar to what had been described in some patients with SARS and possibly attributed to direct infection of renal tissue by the virus. The renal impairment in this case started on the 9th day of symptoms and progressed over the course of the patient's illness No symptoms were observed in the hospital among doctors and nurses caring for the patient, which suggests that the disease did not spread readily. However, staff members were not tested for antibodies against the virus for confirmation. Now that the genome sequence of HCoV-EMC has become available and rapid diagnostic tests specific for HCoV-EMC have been developed,24 thorough epidemiologic investigations are warranted. Such studies should initially focus on identifying the original source of the virus (including bats and other animal species) and potential transmission events between the infected patient and direct contacts. The development of serologic assays for surveillance studies is important. Three months after the hospitalization of the patient in Jeddah, it was reported that a second patient with a history of travel to Saudi Arabia who had been transferred from a hospital in Qatar to a hospital in London was infected with the same virus.25 At present, links between the two infected patients or a potential common source of infection have not been identified. No additional cases have been identified, although several are still under investigation. Epidemiologic investigations, active case findings with the use of updated case definitions,25 and syndrome surveillance in combination with sensitive diagnostic tests will be key to monitoring the present situation and — if necessary — to intervene in a potential outbreak. It will be equally important to test whether HCoV-EMC fulfills Koch's postulates as the causative agent of severe respiratory disease. This case is a reminder that although most infections with human coronaviruses are mild and associated with common colds, certain animal and human coronaviruses may cause severe and sometimes fatal infections in humans. Although HCoV-EMC does not have many of the worrisome characteristics of SARS-CoV, we should take notice of the valuable lessons learned during the 2003 SARS outbreak with respect to outbreak investigations and management. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1211721#t=article May Allah keep all our Hijjaj healthy and safe
