“Muslims Are Naturally Immune To Coronavirus” – Nigerian Islamic Scholar
A Nigerian Islamic Scholar, Dr. Abubakr Imam Aliagan, in his response to FG shutting down mosques in the country, has claimed that Muslims are immune to coronavirus.
The federal government had on March 19 ordered for the shut down of all primary, secondary and tertiary institutions as well as banning the gathering of more than 50 persons in places of worship.
Dr. Abubakr Imam Aliagan, who is a Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Ilorin made this known while reacting to the suspension of congregational prayers at Saudi Arabia.
Aliagan declared that Nigerian Muslim males should be allowed to observe their compulsory prayers in mosques.
He claimed that Muslims have already been endowed with a natural immune system to fight coronavirus.
The scholar said;
Again, our sisters are always adorned in Hijab, some even use Niqab and gloves. So, we the Muslims already have a potent immune system against coronavirus. That is to say that we don’t have any problem.
He added that;
Even in France, I learnt that those that are completely free from contacting coronavirus are Muslim ladies and women who cover their face, use hand gloves and don’t shake hands with people.
