refuge in GOD from the rejected Satan
In the name of
GOD, the Gracious, the Merciful
is a Warning from Almighty GOD!
The Corona-Virus has inflicted heavy casualties on human
populations all around our planet. In the U.S. alone as of July
4, 2020 more than 2.89 million people have been infected by the
Virus with about 132,000 reported deaths.
The Covid-19 is a sign from GOD. 19 is GOD’S signature in the
universe. According to a poll by the University of Chicago
Divinity School and the Associated Press - NORC Center for
Public Affairs Research two-thirds of Americans believe that
Covid-19 carries a message from Almighty GOD. Glory is to GOD;
He is the creator of the heavens and the earth, and all in
between. He is in full control of all things, GOD is doing
everything (8:17). Therefore, Covid-19 has spread throughout the
earth with GOD'S knowledge and permission in order to do His will!
Corona-Virus is a test from Almighty GOD to see if people will
implore Him and seek His help (6:42-43, 7:94).
(6:42) We have sent (messengers) to
communities before you, and we put them to the test through
adversity and hardship, that they may implore.
(6:43) If only they implored when our test afflicted them!
Instead, their hearts were hardened, and the Devil adorned
their works in their eyes.
(7:94) Whenever we sent a prophet to any community, we
afflicted its people with adversity and hardship, that they
GOD is always near and answers to His servants’ prayers (2:186).
People should respond to GOD and pray for His forgiveness (5:74)
for only GOD can help them to be saved from Corona-Virus (1:5).
(2:186) When My servants ask you about Me, I am always near.
I answer their prayers when they pray to Me. The people
shall respond to Me and believe in Me, in order to be
(5:74) Would they not repent to GOD, and ask His
forgiveness? GOD is the Forgiver, the Merciful.
You (GOD) alone we worship. You alone we ask for help.
Only GOD Can Heal:
Millions of people throughout the world implore idols such as
Jesus, Mary, Mohammad, Imams, and the saints for cure from
sicknesses. These idols are powerless and cannot heal anyone.
(6:40) Say, "What if GOD'S retribution came to you, or the
Hour came to you: would you implore other than GOD, if you
(6:41) The fact is: only Him you implore, and He answers
your prayer, if He so wills, and you forget your idols.
we are sick only GOD can heal us (26:80). Therefore, we should
seek GOD'S guidance and implore Him when we get infected by
(26:80) And when I get sick, He heals me.
Even the idols such as Jesus, Mary, Mohammad, Imam Reza used to
implore GOD and seek the ways and means to Him(17:57).
Imploring Him is the only legitimate supplication while all
other idols cannot even respond (13:14). People should know that
the idols that they implore beside GOD do not possess as much as
a single atom in the heavens or the earth and are utterly
incapable of healing their worshipers (34:22). Glory is to GOD;
it is His command that we must not set up any idol beside Him.
The idols they set up beside GOD have no power to relieve any
affliction from the people nor can they prevent any adversity
from happening (17:56).
(17:57) Even the idols that they implore are seeking the
ways and means towards their Lord. They pray for His mercy,
and fear His retribution. Surely, the retribution of your
Lord is dreadful.
(13:14) Imploring Him is the only legitimate supplication,
while the idols they implore beside Him, cannot ever
respond. Thus, they are like those who stretch their hands
to the water, but nothing reaches their mouths. The
supplications of the disbelievers are in vain.
(34:22) Say, "Implore the idols you have set up beside GOD.
They do not possess as much as a single atom in the heavens,
or the earth. They possess no partnership therein, nor does
He permit them to be His assistants."
(17:56) Say, "Implore whatever idols you have set up beside
Him." They have no power to relieve your afflictions, nor
can they prevent them.
a human being gets infected by the Corona-Virus, he or she implores GOD for
help. Some among those who are cured by GOD, they go on as
if they never implored GOD to relieve their hardship (10:12).
again turn to Jesus, Mary, Mohammad, Imams and thus, give
credit to other than GOD and divert people from His path (39:8).
(10:12) When adversity touches the human being, he implores
us while lying down, or sitting, or standing up. But as soon
as we relieve his adversity, he goes on as if he
never implored us to relieve any hardship! The works of the
transgressors are thus adorned in their eyes.
(39:8) When the human being is afflicted, he implores his
Lord, sincerely devoted to Him. But as soon as He blesses
him, he forgets his previous imploring, sets up idols to
rank with GOD and to divert others from His path. Say,
"Enjoy your disbelief temporarily; you have incurred the
The Lord says implore Me and I will respond to you (40:60). He
does not say implore Imam Reza or Jesus or other prophets and
saints!!! Who is the One who responds to you when you implore
Him desperately to relive the adversity? (27:62). Is it Jesus,
Mohammad, Imam Reza, other saints or the Omniscient, Omnipotent,
and Omnipresent GOD? Woe to human being for setting up other
gods to rival Almighty GOD.
(40:60) Your Lord says, "Implore Me, and I will respond to
you. Surely, those who are too arrogant to worship Me will
enter Gehenna, forcibly."
(27:62) Who is the One who rescues those who become
desperate and call upon Him, relieves adversity, and makes
you inheritors of the earth? Is it another god with GOD?
Rarely do you take heed.
Almighty GOD warns us about a retribution such as Covid-19 that
may not be limited to the evildoers among us (8:25). Those that
are silent and are indifferent in the face of idol-worshiping
practices that are deeply rooted in their societies are not
immune from the Corona-Virus. Therefore, do not idolize beside
Almighty GOD any other idol, lest you incur His retribution
[8:25] Beware of a retribution that may not be limited to
the evildoers among you. You should know that GOD'S
retribution is severe.
[26:213] Therefore, do not idolize beside GOD any other god,
lest you incur the retribution.
It is predestined by Almighty GOD that every society will be
annihilated before the Day of Resurrection, or inflicted with
severe retribution due to their sins. This fact is written down
in GOD’S scripture (17:58). Those who constantly challenge GOD’S
revelations and promote idol-worshiping practices, they have
incurred a retribution of painful humiliation such as Covid-19
[17:58] There is not a community that we will not annihilate
before the Day of Resurrection, or inflict severe
retribution upon them. This is already written down in the
[34:5] As for those who constantly challenge our
revelations, they have incurred a retribution of painful
O people, your Lord is the Gracious, the Merciful. If you
implore Him directly without any intermediaries and idols, He
will respond to you. If you want to be protected from Covid-19
seek refuge in Him and ask His forgiveness. Imploring idols
besides GOD will only result in sever retribution.
The Quran, GOD'S Final Message to the world, the Final Testament
Dr. Ahmad Sharbatoghlie
PS: Please note that the usage of the word "US" in verses
of the Quran does not include GOD'S servants who no longer live
on earth. It includes GOD'S angels, His other forces that are invisible to
us, and humans who perform their duties to do HIS will. Glory is to GOD; He loves those who are knowledgeable. Thus
the dedicated scientists, doctors, nurses, and those who are in the front
line trying to save lives are GOD'S servants! Praise be to GOD; the Only LORD,
the Only SAVIOR!!
