Undeniably, the current Covid19 plague is one of the hardest tribulations that disrupted the life of many – be it physically, mentally, spiritually, economically, etc. It has changed many aspects of our life and abruptly made us undergo many new norms and phenomena, including the quarantine. It has taught us how to overcome the unexpected hardships with the right mindset and suitable adaptation. As a matter of fact, we must be reminded that this circumstance is not something new. The Prophet Muhammad PBUH had dedicated many hadith on plague. Scholars of the past and present have put their effort to compile and explain these sayings in incredibly significant works. Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani (773-852H) alone has compiled a separate hadith book on it which he entitled as “بذل الماعون في فضل الطاعون” (Bazlu Al-Mau’n Fi Fadhl Al-Ta’un). Two words which usually translated as “plague” in Arabic are الوباء and الطاعون where the latter is more specific than the former according to him.
