Abstract: This work is targeting pandemic in the Islamic perspective as its objectives. Since this religion is a complete way of life. Qur’anic injunctions on pandemic were outlined with Prophetic traditions. Jurisprudential approach of scholars were explained.

I. INTRODUCTION

A man cannot live in this world without being tested by Allah (SWT) with some things from time to time. Nevertheless, whatever is befalling him let him turn to Allah (SWT) for its removal. Pandemic is not exclusive, Allah (SWT) is always ready to address the needs of his servants. Corona virus also will be over Insha Allah if its creator’s intervention is sought for. As so many viruses before came to an extinction. Every beginning will have an end one day.
Quranic Injunctions
Allah (SWT) is encouraging the Muslims to avoid destroying themselves. For instance, in suratul-baqara (2:195), He says “And spend of your substance in the cause of Allah, and make not your own hands contribute to your destruction, but do good for Allah loves those who do good”. This is a clear injunction that signifies Muslims to keep away from anything that may lead to their destructions. Also Allah (SWT) says in suratul-Araf (7:31) “O children of Adam! Wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer: eat and drink: But waste not by excess, for Allah loves not the wasters. This is clearly emphasizing to the sons of Adam (AS) that they should not waste their properties, be it food, drink, health etc. This is because the Almighty Allah does not love does who are wasters.
