COVID-19 undoubtedly has become one of the world’s greatest disruptions in modern history. The virus has managed to put the fast paced modernised and globalised world on hold, seeing governments enforcing unprecedented moves such as constraining public movement as well as closing borders . As such, societies also are forced to change the way they operate and have to let go common traditions and practices that revolve around community gathering. Religious communities including Muslims are one of the most affected with the repercussions of COVID-19 pandemic, not only spiritually but also socially as religious group activities such as congregational prayers, pilgrimage, and Eid celebrations are put on suspension. However, Muslims can use this time to reflect on the teachings of Islam in the face of this pandemic. Keeping hygienic conditions or practices conducive to maintaining health and preventing disease, especially through cleanliness, for example, has been an essential part of Islam.
