Coronaviruses

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea.

You need to refer to medical experts. If the medical experts say that it is necessary to take the COVID-19 vaccine, you should follow their advice. Islam says that you must protect your self, your family and others from any risk or danger.

If the Masjid trustees authorised by Marje' of Taqleed find it dangerous on the health of the worshipers to allow unvaccinated persons, then they are responsible to protect the health of the worshipers by requesting unvaccinated persons to keep enough distance to avoid any possibility of harming others.

'We should not stop any worshiper from Salat or any other act of worship, but we should never ignore health and safety conditions of other worshipers. Masjid trustees should get written instruction from the office of Marje' of Taqleed if they want to refuse entry to unvaccinated. That can help avoiding dispute between Mo'mineen.

It is permissible to use any type of hand wash or ointment etc even if it contains Najis item, provided that you wash your hands before performing Wudhu and Namaz in case you are definitely sure that it does contain Najis material. If you are not sure that it contains Najis material, then you can take it as Taahir.

This narration المطعون شهيد is found in Sunni books of Hadeeth ( Riyadh al-Saliheen 1:1353 from Abu Huraira) but I did not find it in our authentic books of Hadeeth. It has been mentioned in few of our books of Fiqh but the meaning of مطعون is not a victim of plague but a stabbed person. مطعون can be from طاعون plague and can be from طعن which means stabbing. The meaning of the narration if it was authentic can be a victim of plague or a stabbed to death.

If it is an authentic, it does not mean a real martyr who should not be given Ghusl, but it means the reward which he gets because he was a victim.

Answers should be given with certain knowledge, and no one here (as far as I know!) has certain knowledge about everything that is happening outside of our experience or eyes. 

Also, no one can give certain knowledge about the long-term effects of a new substance or medication, even if there is no ill intent, until time passes and we come to understand the complexity of effects. Certainly there are many substances that were originally thought to be safe and now we know they are dangerous. 

So, basically, no one here can give a full answer to "is it safe". 

However, if you are unsure about whether or not you should receive a vaccine, I suggest (a) talking to researchers or health professionals about it, (b) considering your situation and people around you (for instance, are you in a high-risk profession or are people in your household particularly vulnerable) and making the best decision, and (c) if that does not work, do istikahra.

No doubt, every suffering and hardship we face has a reason behind it which can be warning us from bad deeds. COVID-19 is no exception. The whole world is suffering from different types of injustice and sinful acts committed by millions of people and governments. Nothing is making them leave injustice and wrong deeds. Bad deeds are increasing through the social and e media. Billions of Dollars are been wasted on weapons while millions of human beings are not finding enough food and medicine. Injustice can never go with out punishment or at least warning before the major punishment. It is a warning to every single and all human beings and a warning to the rulers who do injustice.

May Allah protect us from sinful acts and save us from the punishment.
