Ayatollah al-Modarresi:‎
The revered source of emulation said, “The type of combatting COVID-19 (Coronavirus) ‎must become a behavioural habit in all people and this important act must done be in ‎the shadow of the continuation of the spread of the Coronavirus.”‎

RNA – In a statement, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad-Taqi al-Husayni al-‎Modarresi, an Iraqi source of emulation based in Najaf, said, “The type of combatting ‎COVID-19 (Coronavirus) must become a behavioural habit in all people and this ‎important action must be done be in the shadow of the continuation of the spread of ‎the Coronavirus and since we are witnessing an increase in the number of patients and ‎deaths and the lack of proper decision-making, this coexistence is necessary.”‎

The senior Iraqi scholar stated that today, mankind must correct their behaviour and ‎restore their values and culture and added, “The wisdom of general tribulations is for ‎mankind to return to God Almighty and to humble ourselves and supplicate before Him. ‎At this time man becomes aware of his own shortcomings and therefore, one must rely ‎on God in reforming himself and humanity.”‎

He added, “If mankind doesn’t correct its mistakes, this tribulation may continue for a ‎while but that doesn’t mean we have to sit back and watch dozens of people die every ‎day. Instead, we have to make serious decisions to deal with the spread of the ‎Coronavirus, including social distancing and the use of masks and gloves.”‎

Ayatollah al-Modarresi said, “The travel ban isn’t enough to deal with the outbreak of ‎the Coronavirus, which is why countries around the world have changed their minds ‎because of the irreparable economic losses.”‎

His Eminence stressed that the solution is that we must all be committed to using ‎masks, disinfectants and hygiene products.‎

He added, “Islamic societies have embraced many of the great dangers they have ‎experienced and embraced, thanks to behavioural and hygienical habits and religious ‎teachings, such as giving importance to purity and impurities, halal food, drinks, and ‎sexual matters. They have been able to overcome diseases and it still isn’t difficult to ‎add some other habits to these habits, such as the commitment to social distancing and ‎the use of masks and quitting those actions which leads to the spread of the ‎Coronavirus, such as pilgrimage to sacred places and mosques and we must observe ‎health protocols.”‎

In conclusion, Ayatollah al-Modarresi called on the government to provide the ‎necessary solutions and training to deal with the disease so that the people can benefit ‎from it and don’t need to go to medical centres in person and added that the ‎government must provide medicines, preventive measures and speed up electronic ‎administration to reduce the presence of people in offices.‎
