Say, “Never will we be struck except by what Allah has decreed for us; He is our protector.” And upon Allah let the believers rely. (At-Tawbah 9:51)
After the outbreak of Coronavirus best known as (COVID 19), Health World Organization (WHO) declared a state of emergency.
In order to avoid being infected with Coronavirus, we offer you some healthy tips.
1- Wash your both hands thoroughly and frequently for 10-15 seconds.
Fortunately, Muslims are ordered to perform wudu five times a day before offering the obligatory prayers. The parts that should be washed are the hands, the mouth, the nose, the face, and the feet.
2- Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
3- Don’t get into contact with infected people.
4- If a state of emergency is declared, you have to follow the regulations.
5- If congregational and Friday prayers are suspended, you have to abide by the regulations.
6- Don’t leave homes. If you feel sick, get proper medical treatment. Don’t go out until you are fully recovered.
7- When you cough or sneeze, you have to cover it with a tissue.
8- Wear a facemask if you are sick.
9- Practice social distancing. Don’t shake hands or hug others. When you meet others, just offer the official greeting of salam.
10- Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider.
11- Reduce the spread of the coronavirus. If you are an employee, work from home if it is possible. Kids may not go to school and practice e-learning.
