Q. Have you seen the latest statement of Bham’s Jamiatul Ulama South Africa dated 22 December 2020? They believe that there is an even more contagious Covid-19 strain. They also state: “Our actions determine the conditions that Allah sends down. Together with taking all the necessary precautions, we should also shun vice, repent… ” They also encourage people to fear Allah. Please advise.

A. Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “LAA ADWAA – There is no contagion.” We follow what Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said. Our Imaan is in what Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam ruled. What Bham’s Jamiat has averred regarding the contagious nature of the disease, is in diametric conflict with what Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said. Their talk of ‘an even more contagious Covid-19 strain’ is Kufr drivel as it opposes and in fact rejects the explicit Fatwa of Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam regarding contagion!

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam himself negated their BaatilKufr ideologies of diseases being contagious by eating from one bowl with a leper. Listen further: Nabi-e-Kareem Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam took hold of the leper’s hand and dipped it into the bowl from which he Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam also ate. And that is not the end of it. Emphasizing ‘La adwaa’, Nabi-e-Kareem Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam commented to the leper: “Eat and have trust in Allah”. That is: whatever happens is by the decree of Allah Azza Wa Jal.

When Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam verbally and practically refuted the contagious nature of diseases, then it is nothing but Kufr and Nifaaq which constrains a person to oppose Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Those who reject the explicit declaration of ‘La Adwaa’ of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) cannever be Muslims. They are munaafiqeen and Murtaddeen.

The Munaafiq friends of the court forgot about their Kufr acts of opposing the opening of the Masaajid. They forgot that the Masjid is the House of Allah. Now, they hypocritically state: “Our actions determine the conditions that Allah sends down”Their miserable action of running to court to appease the Kuffaar will definitely determine the miserable conditions that Allah will afflict them with. This is undeniable as those who prevent others from the Masaajid and close the Masaajid are Zaalimeen according to the Qur’aan which explicitly states:  “For them disgrace in this world, and in the Aakhirat a great punishment.” (Al-Baqarah, Aayat 114)

The talk of ‘necessary precautions’ is also kufr bunkum. These precautions were introduced by the atheists and the medical Murtaddeen. These precautions are in conflict with the Shariah. Their rubbish protocols, guidelines and so-called ‘precautions’ are based on the Kufr theory of contagion which is in repudiation of what Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said. It is not difficult to understand that this is clear-cut Kufr. How did Nabi Sallallahu alayhi Wasallam and the Sahaabah Radhiyallahu Anhum conduct themselves during plagues? Were there any protocols in Salaat? Let us wait for an answer from the Munaafiqeen…

Finally, the Munaafiqeen sound ludicrous when they speak of fearing Allah and shunning vice, repenting, Istighfaar, Dua, etc.

When vice is regarded as virtue by them such as TV, the Haraam weddings, intermingling of the sexes and the Kufr act of closing the Masaajid, etc. etc. then what indeed is their ideology regarding fearing Allah??? These Munaafiqeen make a laughing stock of themselves.
