Coronavirus has shocked and shaken the world as few things have. Perhaps, not since the Flood has the entire planet been so profoundly affected.
Shut down virtually.
Noah, Alaihis Salam, is not with us. But his message is. Fully documented in the Qur’an.
While this Virus seems to have all the earmarks of a Biblical Plague, it has also produced amazing opportunities for Muslims to act. And to make an impact on the world.
Muslims can act and make an impact by reaching out to the non-Muslims of the world and reminding them about God Almighty and his role in our lives and in this world.
Muslims can tell the non-Muslims of the world that at least now they all should turn to God and (A) Repent and (B) Pray.
They must Repent from their follies.
And they must Pray to God to turn this plague away from them and from the whole world.
At the same time, Muslims can turn the present situation into an opportunity. Since pretty much everything is online and virtual these days, maybe Muslims should utilize every hour, every minute available to them to unleash an educational revolution for their own people.
And that means teaching Muslims of all ages, men and women, the Qur’an and the Hadith. Not labored commentaries of them but basic texts and their simple meaning.
Starting out with teaching every Muslim child and adult, male and female, how to read the Qur’an correctly, with correct pronunciation of words.
And then teach the meaning of the words of the Qur’an.
Make it all time based. For example, roughly 30 hours for learning to read the Qur’an correctly.
And then go from there.
