RNA – During these fateful days wherein the country is suffering from COVID-19 (Coronavirus), many religious scholars and clerics are advising the people in relation with this virus and to accompany the authorities in order to eradicate the epidemic.
These days, the Coronavirus has become the world’s foremost subject in the media, as well as the subject of the people’s discussions around the world and is a contention that has engulfed many parts of society.
The magnitude of this great humanitarian catastrophe has affected nearly 125 countries and is increasing day by day throughout the world.
However, research and medical teams continue to work to contain the deadly virus worldwide, and this epidemic will undoubtedly be contained in the near future, but it will take time.
Iran is also known for being one of the countries with the highest incidence of the virus and unfortunately since the outbreak of the virus, we have witnessed that approximately 14,000 Iranians have been infected and more than 420 deaths.
Therefore, it requires that the society and the people, along with the government and the Islamic system of government, have a smart response to the virus so that we may witness the eradication of the virus in the country and the world.
However, the people have the most important role in the fight against the Coronavirus and without doubt, the failure of the people to accompany them can never help the authorities and the government officials to overcome this virus.
In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Abbas Arabian, the head of the Islamic Seminaries of Kordestan province, said, “The sacred religion of Islam is a social and comprehensive religion and has all the answers of humanity at its heart. Therefore, just as the holy religion of Islam, especially the Prophet Muhammad and the Purified Imams, has ordered, everyone must strive to be diligent in observing the standards of hygiene.”
His Eminence continued, “Also, we must appreciate the hard work of the medical teams during these difficult days and the people who have seriously put their health at risk due to the Coronavirus.”
He said, “We call on these sacrificers in the field of health be more appreciated and that we are grateful for the forbearance and love of these dear ones who have so far gave sixty martyrs.”
Hujjat al-Islam Arabian said that given the current situation, the people must accompany the health officials more than ever before, “The best and safest way to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus is to stay at home.”
