Ayatollah al-Modarresi:
An Iraqi source of emulation said, “To deal with the Coronavirus, the efforts of the ‎medical staff alone are not enough and everyone must cooperate and interact with each ‎other.”‎

RNA – In a statement, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad-Taqi al-Husayni al-‎Modarresi, an Iraqi source of emulation based in Najaf, said, “We thank the people who ‎are trying to control the Coronavirus but this isn’t enough and everyone in the society ‎should be vigilant in trying to control this virus.”‎

The senior Iraqi scholars said, “One of the reasons for the spread of this virus in Iraq, ‎despite the closure of borders and curfews, is the failure of officials to provide the ‎essential needs of the people to prevent this disease and the lack of cooperation and ‎empathy of the people in dealing with this disease.”‎

Ayatollah al-Modarresi stated, “Purity and cleanliness is one of the traditions of God ‎and God loves clean and pure people, and this means that any ugliness and filth should ‎be avoided, whether in a social position that includes cleanliness of the environment or ‎in the position of a person who includes the purity of the body and clothes and the ‎place of worship from any impurity and pollution.”‎

He emphasized the social dimension and added, “It’s necessary to keep our ‎environment and society free from pollution and viruses and to maintain cleanliness and ‎tidiness by wearing a mask when leaving the house and use give special attention to ‎disinfectant solutions.”‎

Ayatollah al-Modarresi also stated, “Maintaining social cleanliness can only be achieved ‎with the cooperation and observance of all people, and we should distance ourselves ‎from some recommended things such as visiting, attending weddings and other things, ‎because these things are in conflict with preserving one’s soul and life. Contact through ‎social media and feeding the needy instead of setting up parties and gatherings where ‎dozens of people are likely to get infected.”‎
