Swine flu fears grip the world…

26 04 2009

ALHAMDULLILLAH (All praises be to Allah Subhannahu Wataala), Islamic teachings preach the importance of cleanliness. And taking ablution before each daily prayer (obligatory for Muslims to pray five times a day) which involves washing essential parts of the body, particularly starting with both hands is ‘cleanliness is next to Godliness’ in itself. This is the most basic act of cleansing oneself from all kinds of diseases i.e. as a preventative measure from being infected with SARS, Bird Flu, Foot and Mouth disease and now the recent outbreak of Swine Influenza which has killed a number of people in Mexico and elsewhere in the world.

Another good teaching of Islam is the prohibition for all Muslims from eating pork meat, or even to rear pigs. The Swine Flu is believed to have originated from that particular animal and is further spread through human-to-human contact.

My point is with the rapid outbreak of this latest epidemic to hit the global population, the God Almighty seems to be  giving warning signs to  human beings on earth in general and Muslims  in particular to strictly adhere to the teachings of the Islamic  Holy Book, the Al-Quran. I personally admit that I have been neglecting my spiritual duties and responsibilities toward Him lately.

So what better time to start now and pray right away  to seek Allah’s Guide and Protection from this Swine Flu fever… Insya Allah (God Willing).
