Coronavirus & Delhi Riots

This is a summary of a talk by Shaykh Abdul Raheem Limbada Hafizahullah

There is too much fear put out there for Coronavirus, Covid19. If you look at the statistics there is nothing to worry about. Have faith in Allah. People are dying from other illnesses such as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes etc more than from this virus.

Islaam is the best way of life. Full of guidance in everything. Allah has forbidden us to consume animals such as snakes & bats for a reason SubhanAllah!

If, Allah forbid, anyone is affected by Coronavirus, do the following & insha’Allah they will be granted with shifaa:

One Hakim Saheb from Pakistan says that the affected person should take one small onion and chew it all. He can sprinkle a little salt if needed. Avoid drinking water for 5 minutes.

Hakeemi prescriptions are very effective.

Our Hazrat knew a lot about hikmat. For stomach upset, he mentioned the following:

– Take 21 mint leaves
– 7 black peppercorns
– 3 cardamom pods
-1 litre of water.

Boil all of this together & consume throughout the day.

Preventative Measures

1) Remain clean – Wash your hands properly. Alhamdulillah we do this 5 times a day & when we do istinjaa.

2) When sneezing & coughing, cover ones face with tissue & dispose.

3) If affected, try not to leave home, avoid crowds.

The Hadith explains quarantines:

“If you hear that it (the plague) is in a land, do not go there, and if it breaks out in a land where you are, do not leave, fleeing from it.” (Bukhari)

Spiritual Cure

1) Give sadqah. It removes all troubles.

2) Pray your Masnoon Duas. Shaykh mentioned the following:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ البَرَصِ وَالْجُنُونِ وَالْجُذَامِ وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الْأَسْقَامِ
Allhumma inni a’udhu bika minal barasi wal jununi wal judhami wa min sayyi-il asqam
“O Allah! I seek refuge in You from leprosy, madness and evil diseases”

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمَاً نَافِعَاًً وَرِزْقَاً وَاسِعَاًَ وَشِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ
Allaahumma inni as’aluka `ilman naïf`an wa `amalan mutaqabbalan wa rizqan wasi`an wa shifa’an min kulli da’in

O Allah, I ask of You to grant me beneficial knowledge, acceptable deeds, abundant provision, and healing/cure from all ailments.

اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَدَنِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي سَمْعِي، اللَّهُمَّ عَافِنِي فِي بَصَرِي، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

Allahumma ‘afini fi badani, Allahumma ‘afini fi sam’i, Allahumma ‘afini fi basari La ilaha illa anta
“O Allah! Make my body healthy, make my hearing healthy, make my eyesight healthy. There is no Deity but You”

Recite durood 3x
Then surah momin ayahs 115-118
أفحسبتم انما خلقناكم عبثا و إنكم ألينا لا ترجعون….
Recite durood 3x again

Our mother Aisha (Radhiallahu Anha) reports: “I asked the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, about plagues” He replied, “It is a punishment that Allah sends upon whoever He wills, but Allah has made it a mercy for the believers. Any servant who resides in a land afflicted by plague, remaining patient and hoping for reward from Allah, knowing that nothing will befall him but what Allah has decreed, will be given the reward of a martyr.”


CAUSE: Minds poisoned with hatred by some rogue politicians.
EFFECTS: Attacks, deaths, destruction of properties and businesses
CURE: being patient, spreading peace, harmony, and love.

Spiritual Causes

– Increase in sins
– Gheebah
– Slandering
– Taking peoples wealth unlawfully
– Lack of Taqwa
– Not fulfilling Huqooq ullah & Huqooq ul Ibaad
– Mocking the religion

Effects: Weakness of imaan & loss of connection with Allah, delay in arrival of help from Allah, non acceptance of duas.


– Start practicing
– Go in tableeghi jammaat, in the path of Allah, seek knowledge etc.

Allah’s help will not come when we are off track . Allah’s help will only come when we are on track.

When we sin here, it has an effect on other parts of the world too. Stop sinning & start living a life of taqwa.

If we make an effort to change by working on ourselves and on our households, the effect will be seen in other parts of the world too. Allah will send help to the Muslims & remove this disease, as well as the oppression and injustice.

We make duas here in Bolton and the effects will take place in Delhi InshaAllah. Also other places like Kashmir, Shaam, Filistine etc.

“The Muslims are like a single man. If the eye is afflicted, the whole body is afflicted. If the head is afflicted, the whole body is afflicted.”
Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2586

Avoid backbiting Muslims. Remember the Hadith “The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. *And in every believer there is good.* Be eager for that which benefits you, seek Allah’s help. Do not feel helpless. Then if something befalls you don’t say ‘if only’ because ‘if only’ opens the door work of Satan” (Muslim)
