In a message posted on its social media page, the center said the Quranic advice for such crises is summarized into two issues: strengthening the faith in God and thanking Him for the Divine blessings.
Referring to verse 147 of Surah al-Nisa, “Why should God punish you if you give thanks and believe in Him? God is All-rewarding and All-forgiving,” it underlined the need for strong faith and thankfulness.
The Holy Quran and Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) have provided humanity with all they need for dealing with mishaps, it said, according to elbalad.news website.
The center added that the spread of the coronavirus is the result of sins that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) has warned against.
