I seek refuge in GOD from the rejected Satan

In the name of GOD, the Gracious, the Merciful

 

Covid - 19 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 may implore.

     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 guided.

(5:74) Would they not repent to GOD, and ask His forgiveness? GOD is the Forgiver, the Merciful.

(1:5) 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 are truthful?"

(6:41) The fact is: only Him you implore, and He answers your prayer, if He so wills, and you forget your idols.

     When 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 Corona-Virus.

(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.

     When 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). They again they 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 Hellfire."

     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 (26:213).

[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 (34:5).

[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 book.

[34:5] As for those who constantly challenge our revelations, they have incurred a retribution of painful humiliation.

     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.

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!!
