“The star of the Thuraya never came out in the morning and made them impotent except and removed from them or feared” .. The content of a recent hadith attributed to the Prophet recently spread on social media, which talked about the end of a virus Sk The newcomer will be held on the 19th of next Ramadan, which corresponds to the appearance of the Pleiades star within the constellation of Taurus.
Many were quick to share the post, and that the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, mentioned in a hadith that if the star got up in the morning the defect would be lifted from each town, which was answered by Dr. Abdullah Al-Najjar, a member of the Islamic Research Academy.
Sharia response to the published hadith
In his interview with Al-Watan, Dr. Abdullah stated that everything that was said about the disappearance of the Corona epidemic in the coming days and its connection to a prophetic hadith is groundless, as the reasons must be taken, and that God Almighty has made everything a reason And that the epidemic has a wisdom that only the Glorified teaches, and it should not be driven by rumors spread by some ignorant people who play people’s minds and their aim is to occupy people about the correct worship of God and mention it.
Regarding the authenticity of the circulating hadith, that hadith is not correct, but the correct one is that “the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, forbade the sale of fruits in order to escape impotence,” and that the conversation is about transactions and how to trade.
And Abdullah stated that the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, prohibited the sale of fruits until their goodness appeared, meaning that a person should not sell fruits or fruits, which are trees or on the ground before they ripen and be edible, that is, ahead of schedule, because a pandemic may come that which perishes Fruits, what makes a person like deceiving others he contracted with, and Sharia forbade deception, because that leads to disputes and disputes, and that is contrary to Islamic law.
And he warned that people should not be driven by these false sayings and investigating scholars, and that other ignorant people who publish these false hadiths aim to occupy people for God only.
While Sheikh Al-Azhari Ahmed Madkour mentioned that what some think about the emergence of the Pleiades star and raising the pandemic on the 19th of Ramadan, and that the talk about if the star appeared in the morning raised the deficiency, then it is a weak and baseless hadith that is false to the Prophet, and he did not respond from the Messenger of God, Rather, the Holy Prophet mentioned impairment in a specific matter.
“Madkour” warned that he who says this hadith is lying to the Messenger, and the Messenger, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said, “Whoever lied to me deliberately, let him take his seat from the fire.” As God Almighty said, “And if one of them comes from a matter of security or disobedience ۖ Respond him to the Messenger and to the one who has first commanded them to know him from whom they are extrapolating from them ۗ And if only for God’s grace be upon you
And that everyone who participates in posting these false and weak hadiths, whether by saying them directly or circulating them on the communication sites, the Prophet said about them, “Stop one falsely from happening with all that he has heard.”
Astronomy Institute responded
Dr. Muhammad Gharib said from astronomical research that what people are talking about the correlation of the Pleiades star with the Corona virus pandemic is absolutely not true, and a rumor is unfounded, and that astronomy is based on the study of the movement of stars and planets and their distance from Earth, the death of stars and the formation of galaxies But linking something to something is a kind of astrology.
Gharib stated that there are many stars and constellations that swim in space, but it is reported that the star of the Thuraya in the constellation of Taurus is related to Corona, which is not true, and that the stars appear and are always destroyed, but they are not scientifically linked to epidemics but rather related to the movement of planets and understanding more About what goes on in space outside the planet Earth.
While Dr. Ashraf Tadros, head of the astronomy department at the Astronomical Research Institute, explained that there is no star in the name of the Pleiades, but there is a star cluster or a cluster of stars named Pleiades or what we call the Seven Sisters, an open type star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus, which is one of the brightest and most famous star clusters Open in the sky at all.
And this crowd contains a very large number of stars, but only 7 stars can be seen with the naked eye, so it was called the Seven Sisters .. Tadres confirmed that there is this crowd these days in the sky so we cannot see it, and this crowd will shine with sunrise completely (That is, we cannot see it either) at about five and a half in the sky in Cairo on May 16, 2020 .. but it will rise at dawn and just before sunrise (i.e. it can be seen at that time) at about four oclock until the quarter of the morning began from June 6, and then begins its sunrise in Early, day by day, until it is visible in the Cairo sky before midnight in early August, at will Allah.
A virologist comments: There is no scientific basis for this
Dr. Ahmed Senusi, a specialist in viruses and epidemics, responded to what was said on the communication sites, as something that is not based on a scientific basis, and has nothing to do except if there are epidemiological analyzes and research, and the numbers must be reliable, and at that time we can expect when the virus will end. And the matter must be based on scientific research, blood analyzes and reliable studies of its sources, and there is still no specific date for the end of the global pandemic.
He pointed out that corona viruses are intrusive and mutated, and that the symptoms of the virus differ from one person to another and appear according to a person’s immune ability to deal with the infection, and therefore new symptoms appear daily, it is possible that the virus infects the respiratory system only, and may move from the respiratory system to affect other devices From the body, and in some stages, the coronavirus may lead to kidney failure, not because it has infected the kidneys but rather as a result of the destruction of immune cells and bodies.
