Coronavirus has encircled the entire world. Flight operations, commerce, the economy, tourism and many other sectors of the world have been affected.
Hajj, the biggest meeting of Muslims in the Holy City of Mecca, is predicted to be cancelled this year in fear of coronavirus.
Saudi Arabia wants Muslims to wait for more information about the coronavirus pandemic before deciding to attend the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
If the Hajj event is cancelled, it would be a bad omen for the Muslims. Hajj is one of the key pillars of Islam; every Muslim must perform Hajj once in his lifetime. Besides, the Hajj plays a significant role in Islam, offers different lessons and is a sure way to forgive the Almighty.
It was narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri: the Prophet said: “The people will continue to conduct Hajj and ‘Umra in Ka’ba even after the arrival of Gog and Magog.” Sahih Bukhari.
As per this Hadith, the end of time is approaching when the Hajj ends. When the coronavirus hinders the responsibility of the hajj, it means that the route to the judgment day has started to be paved.
Does no hajj mean the end of time?
The day of judgment will come when the Tawaf will end. “And by the Bait-ul-Ma’mur (the house over the heavens parable to the Kaaba at Makkah, continuously visited by the angels)” (Holy Quran Surah 52:4)
Baitul Ma’mur is the first model of Kaaba, the Almighty House of Allah, which is situated beyond the domain of man. In addition, Baitul Ma’mur is located directly above the Kaaba. It is also located in the highest heavens, the Seventh Heaven, above which is the throne of Allah the Almighty.
“Then I was shown Al-Bait-al-Ma’mur (i.e. the House of Allah). I asked Gabriel about it, and he said, “This is Al Bait-ul-Ma’mur where 70,000 angels pray every day, and when they leave they never return to it (but still a fresh batch comes into it every day)” (Sahih Bukhari 3207; Sahih Muslim 164).
Moreover, not only the gods, but also the birds and other beings (jinn) do the Tawaf of the holy Kabba. Therefore, if the tawaf of a human even ends, the tawaf of other beings does not.
However, the time of the end is near. The hindrance of coronavirus in the way of hajj is maybe the first thing in the way of the end of time.
Israel and end of time
Obviously, the Jews are the greatest enemies of the Muslims. If the Hajj ends, they would be the happiest, and the Muslims would deviate from the right direction. It is believed that Israel, with the aid of the United States, is the founder of coronavirus. If it’s real, the Muslims will bear the brunt of it. Absurdly, Israel also reported that it had created a coronavirus cure vaccine.
What should Muslims do?
Muslims need to think about what has gone wrong on their side has contributed to the rise of anti-Muslim forces and the decline of Muslims. Are Muslims really going down the road of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?
No, it’s not. Muslems are divided into sects. They are motivated by materialism rather than by spiritualism.
Besides, the Muslims left reason, reasoning, and all that was once bestowed upon them. They indulge themselves in misconduct, greed, and ignorance.
A Muslim must ask himself, does not all this call for the wrath of Allah?
Therefore, it is high time that Islamic scholars united and told Muslims to follow the path of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the path of truth, the path of wisdom, the path of justice, the path of love and humanity.
Otherwise, Muslims are going to face the worst of problems than COVID-19.
