Important advice related to the outbreak of Coronavirus


Shaykh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee said:

In Islaam, [extending the greeting of] as-salaam [‘alaykum] is with the tongue, and the shaking of hands is an extra good deed, yet today from [that which constitutes] an extra good deed is to abandon the shaking of hands, for indeed priority must be given to warding off harm over gaining benefit. So I encourage all of the Muslims to suffice with [extending the greeting of] as-salaam [‘alaykum] with the tongue, and abandoning the shaking of hands.

[In addition, I advise with] reducing going out of the homes, as well as attending gatherings which are not necessary. And [I also advise with], paying extreme care and attention to cleanliness.

And [most importantly], [complete] trust in Allaah [must prevail] from before [anything should occur] and after [anything should occur too].
