Opinion: Is Covid-19 A Sign of God's Anger?

Corona virus has infected more than 2.4 million people around the world since it appeared in China last November. The virus has brought the world to a standstill forcing millions of people to isolate while the death toll steadily climbs. About 174,839 has died of this pandemic as of the 21st of April, 2020. Corona virus is affecting 210 countries and two international conveyances.

According to an article published by AQ Siddiqui in India, God sent the virus to the Earth to punish humanity for losing its way.

Mr. Siddiqui argues this is evident as religious sites across the world have canceled events due to the outbreak of the corona virus. For instance, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia has canceled 2020 Hajj and also temporarily banned Umrah pilgrims from all over the world. The pope has also canceled meetings in Vatican city.

Mr. Siddiqui wrote on the India post" the sages among mankind believed that God will be unhappy when justice will be denied, when atrocities against mankind will increase, rulers will usurp their powers and suppress their subjects, the court will shun justice.

However, the countries we used to know as the world powers such as the USA, China, Germany, Italy, Russia, France, the United Kingdom are the most affected country by this pandemic. Despite their powers, no cure has been discovered for the virus. This proofs that Almighty God is the Most Powerful and The Most Exalt. In Quran 30 vs 41, God says "corruption has appeared through the land and sea be(reason of) what the hands of people have earned so He(i.e God) may let them taste part of the consequence of what they have done that perhaps they will return (to righteousness).

What God warms us to abstain from has been made lawful in most countries. Unlawful act such as lesbianism, homosexuality has been legalized in many countries. A lot of atrocities and injustice are being committed daily around the globe.

We all need to turn on to God to seek his forgiveness. God says in Quran 71 vs 10-12 "And said; ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a perpetual forgiver. He will send (rain from) the sky upon you in (continuity) showers. And give you increase in wealth and children and provide you gardens and provide for you rivers".

If this pandemic can take many lives within a short period, then a greater and severe punishment is inevitable with the Lord. May the Almighty God forgive us of all our shortcomings and relieve us of all our pains.
