Abstract

“Corona Virus-19” has spread all over the world which has created a terrifying situation. The virus has made the whole world. All human beings, especially Muslims, are constantly praying to Allah Almighty for its elimination by strengthening their relationships through prayers with Allah. Moreover, everyone is remembering God according to their own religious ways and trying to get closer to Him. The world has adopted “lock down” to avoid its spread and the situation is still out of the control. Globally, the numbers of infected people were provided by CET, as 49,106,931 of COVID-19 by the evening of November 7, 2020 including 1,239,157 deaths, have been reported by WHO on the evening of November 7, 2020.  However, in this context, a section from society has started baseless objections to the existence of God. The most important thing is that due to this virus, people have got a chance to come closer to Allah. Through the quarantine, many people have moved away from this mortal world and established a strong bond with their Creator. This article explores the causes of the spread of infectious diseases and its treatment in the light of Sirat-e-Tayyiba and the extent to which both religion and science play a role in preventing any disease have been analyzed.
