COVID-19 (COronaVIrus Disease 2019) is a name of human disease while Quran’s Code 19 is a sign of a messenger and common denominator of mathematical coding of the Quran, the message given to the messenger. COVID-19 is an official name given by WHO for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak all over the world while God Himself has coded 19 in the Quran associating with His prophecies to unveil it at appropriate time. COVID-19 is our concern to save lives in the earth for devastating impact in the world and Quran’s Code 19 is to save our souls in the eternal life. Even if we may think that there is no direct link between COVID-19 and Quran’s Code 19 due to our limited knowledge but might be an analogy being a warning for the God fearing to turn towards Him. While we can take initiatives what are being practiced as preventive care actions to fight the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19 to escape from the infection/death being a lesson for us to worship Him following His guidance through self-quarantining and isolating from the worldwide idol/figure worshipers to save souls in the Hereafter for ourselves and our families.
An overview of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19)
COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus) is a virus more specifically, a coronavirus identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China. Early on, many of the patients in the outbreak in Wuhan, China reportedly had some link to a large seafood and animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. However, a growing number of patients reportedly have not had exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread is occurring. At this time, it’s unclear how easily or sustainably this virus is spreading between people.
On February 11, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, first identified in Wuhan, China. The name of this disease is coronavirus disease 2019, abbreviated as COVID-19. In COVID-19, ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease. This disease was formerly referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV”. The name of this disease was selected following the World Health Organization best practices for naming new human infectious diseases.
a. Human Coronavirus Types
There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. Coronaviruses are named for the crown-like spikes on their surface. There are four main sub-groupings of coronaviruses, known as alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. Human coronaviruses were first identified in the mid-1960s. The seven coronaviruses that can infect people are:
i. Common human coronaviruses
1. 229E (alpha coronavirus)
2. NL63 (alpha coronavirus)
3. OC43 (beta coronavirus)
4. HKU1 (beta coronavirus)
ii. Other human coronaviruses
5. MERS-CoV (the beta coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS)
6. SARS-CoV (the beta coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS)
7. SARS-CoV-2 (the novel coronavirus that causes coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19)
People around the world commonly get infected with human coronaviruses 229E, NL63, OC43, and HKU1. Sometimes coronaviruses that infect animals can evolve and make people sick and become a new human coronavirus. Three recent examples of this are 2019-nCoV, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV.
The symptoms that may appear 2-14 days after exposure based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses are:
- Shortness of breath
The additional symtoms that are reported by CDC are:
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
c. When to seek medical attention
Emergency warning signs for COVID-19 to get medical attention immediately, which include but not inclusive:
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse Bluish lips or faces
d. Practice of preventive care actions
There is no treatment for the disease at least as of today while practice everyday preventive actions help reduce the risk of getting sick and remind others in home to do the same. These actions are especially important for older adults and people having severe chronic medical conditions:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects (e.g., tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles).
- Launder items, including washable plush toys, as appropriate and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely. Dirty laundry from an ill person can be washed with other people’s items.
e. Medical equipment and pharmaceuticals
Ventilator — A machine that moves air in and out of the lungs in the case that a patient cannot, or is having trouble breathing on their own.
PPE — Personal protective equipment, such as masks, gloves, face shields, and other gear that keeps health care workers from catching an infection.
Respirator — A face mask that seals around the mouth and filters out particles from the air before they are breathed in. An N95 respirator, for example, filters out “95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles,” the Food and Drug Administration explains. Doctors, nurses, and hospital workers are facing shortages of this essential protective face wear.
Surgical mask or face mask — These are loose-fitting masks that don’t filter out as many particles as a respirator. But they do stop a wearer from spreading droplets of contagion when they sneeze or cough. They’re also helpful in preventing a wearer from touching their face with dirty hands.
Chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine — Antimalarial drugs hyped by President Trump (despite weak evidence) as being potentially useful in treating Covid-19. Clinical trials of these drugs are underway, but early evidence is still not clear they prove useful. These aren’t the only drugs currently being tested to treat COVID-19: Doctors are also testing antiviral medication and some HIV drugs. These drugs are also used to treat arthritis and lupus, as they also have anti-inflammatory properties.
Fever — Generally, a fever is when the body temperature exceeds 100.4°F, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But there is some variability here. Human bodies tend to be coldest when we wake up. So a 100.4-degree fever in the morning might grow a little hotter throughout the day. Some people also run a little hotter or colder than others. The CDC advises “fever may be considered to be present if a person has not had a temperature measurement but feels warm to the touch, or gives a history of feeling feverish.”
Pneumonia — When the small air sacs of the lungs (alveoli, the structures where gases from the atmosphere are exchanged with the blood) become inflamed and fill up with fluid. It’s a possible symptom of COVID-19.
Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) — A technology used for Covid-19 diagnostic testing. It looks for the virus’s genetic signature.
Serological tests — A diagnostic test that looks for antibodies (a blood protein built to help fight off a specific virus or pathogen), could tell if someone has ever been infected with Covid-19, and could suggest they are possibly immune. These tests are still being developed for Covid-19.
Vaccine — A formulation to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies for a pathogen in the hope of providing immunity to that pathogen. Vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 are being tested, but it could be a year or more before they are approved. A safe and effective vaccine can stop this pandemic in its tracks.
Therapeutics — The WHO is currently facilitating a multinational clinical trial, testing medicines — and combinations of medicines to treat COVID-19. Therapeutics won’t necessarily stop the outbreak, though. They may keep people from getting severely sick or dying. Even with therapeutics, the virus could still spread, infecting millions.
An overview of Quran’s Code 19
The Quran was revealed more than 1400 years ago while the concept of mathematical coding of Quran is around us about half a century revealed in 1974, which has not got much attention of many people even those who believe in the Quran. Their leaders disregard it claiming that Muhammad was the last messenger as well as saying that they do not need it. Thus, they have rejected the God’s message just to continue their religion business hiding their wickedness from the common people. As a consequence, the so-called Muslims are gathering around the masjids/Islamic centers all over the world falling into figure worshiping inventing a novel religion, Muhammedanism. While God has clearly and precisely described the advent of His messenger as prophesied and the message in the Quran to find the right path for Muslims who have common sense when people are away from His revelations, even living in scientifically and technologically advanced community.
a. The messenger
The mathematical coding of Quran has been unveiled in 1974 through a messenger of God, which has been His system from the past (72:27) upon fulfillment of the related prophecies and promises in the Quran. The prophecies and the promises related to the messenger are detailed out below including supported by the explicit proof when the end of the world is not too far from now as predicted in 2280:
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
Note: The number 19 is the sign (miracle) to support the messenger of covenant.
[15:9] Indeed, we have sent down the reminder, and indeed, we will certainly be protectors of it.
Note: The divine promise to protect the Quran from any distortions is directly connected to the unveiling of the Quran’s code, eliminating any myth around the traditional Muslim arena that the invisible force will come down to protect it when are extraneous materials attempted to inject into it.
[27:82] And when has fulfilled the punishment upon them, we have brought for them a creature from the earth speaks to them that the people have been with our revelations do not ascertain.
Note: The prophecy in the Quran to produce a creature from the earth for authenticity of the Quran to bring people back to the Quran when the majority people are away from God’s revelations.
[3:81] And when God took a covenant from the prophets: “Certainly, whatever I have given you of scripture and wisdom, then a messenger has come to you confirming that which is with you. You must believe in him and you must support him.” He said: “Have you affirmed and taken My covenant on that?” They said: “We have affirmed.” He said: “So, you shall bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.”
Note: The prophecy in the Quran to send a messenger after delivering all the scriptures is destined to unveil the code of the Quran by God’s leave upon fulfillment of the prophecy.
[33:7] And when we took from the prophets their covenant, and from you (Muhammad), and from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary. And we took from them a solemn covenant.
Note: The confirmation of the prophecy in the verse, 3:81 as well as an assurance for us to eliminate any doubt from our hearts about Muhammad to be the prophesied messenger.
Note: An explicit proof of a messenger not to have any doubt in hearts of the true believers of God.
b. The message
Quran is a reminder for the world, which has been repeatedly mentioned in the Quran while the mathematical coding of the Quran is also a reminder for the human race when it has come to them as detailed in (74:30-37). The name of the message being mathematical coding is a hint in (74:30) and the core message as the reminder in (74:31). While 19 is a common denominator of the Quran’s mathematical system as well as a sign to support the messenger destined to unveil it coded in the message found in (74:30) being a great sign (74:35) have been confirmed by God taking an oath referring to the moon, the night and the morning (74:32-34) to warn the most advanced community of the world among them whoever wishes to advance or to stay behind (74:36-37):
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] And we have not made guardians of the Fire except angels, and we have not made their number except a warning for those who disbelieved, that it may ascertain those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and may increase faith of those who have believed (Muslims), and may not doubt those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and the believers (Muslims). And that may say those in their hearts there is a disease (hypocrites) and the disbelievers, “What has God meant by this allegory?” Thus, God misguides whomever He wills and He guides whomever He wills. And none knows your Lord’s soldiers except He. And it is not except a reminder for the human race.
[74:32-34] Nay, (I swear) by the moon. And the night when it departs. And the morning when it brightens.
[74:35] Indeed, it is undoubtedly one of the great (signs).
Note: The 19 is confirmed to be a sign (miracle) for the messenger followed by an oath of God and the sum of the digits of sura and verse # i.e. 74:35 is 19 [7 + 4 + 3 + 5].
[74:36-37] A warning for the human race. For whoever among you has willed that he may advance or he may stay behind.
Note: An explicit proof of the message including the sign (miracle) given to the messenger precisely coded in a specific set of verses in the Quran but also an exact answer for the common question of many Muslims who ignore the divine message seeking for the message given to the messenger.
COVID-19 is a pandemic disease all over the world and we are trying to escape from it practicing preventive measures as recommended by the health professional protecting ourselves and helping prevent spreading the virus to others as there is no treatment for it through washing our hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub, covering our nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when we cough or sneeze, avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell, staying home and self-isolating from others in the household if we feel unwell, wearing face mask when we are out or talking to someone face to face for preventing inhale droplets from the sick people as well as avoiding any type of social gathering. These are the best practices that may help us escape from infection/death. Thus, we are so concern of COVID-19 to save lives in the earth for devastating impact in the world when efforts are being made by national and international authorities to maintain public health all over the world and hospital workers in risk are working round the clock to give care to patients who are battling with the COVID-19.
When COVID-19 is causing our suffering and death in our earthly lives while the Quran’s Code 19 may save us from the eternal suffering in the Hereafter if we could give proper attention to it, which has been around us for about 45 years to bring people back to God’s revelation when the people having it are completely away from it seeking for other sources. God being Knower of our all situations has given us a reminder, being an effective tool to remove misconceptions and corruptions made to God’s given religion over the period of time, even misinterpreting many crucial verses of the Quran, and the tool is very helpful to predict that the world will come to an end in 2280 A.D (1710 A.H) deriving information from the Quran, a wondrous creation of God. But it is unfortunate that the leaders of the people of the scripture who insist their people on idol/figure worshiping have rejected the reminder to continue their religion business misleading their followers claiming that they do not need the message nor the messenger out of jealously, is not an exception of what we have learned from the Quran. Thus, the people belonging to the major religions of the world: Christianity, Islam (practically Muhammedanism), Hinduism, Buddhism, Bahaism, Judaism fall into idol/figure worshiping and their worshiping even gathering in the places of worship are not dedicating to God alone is understandable.
Even there is no direct link between COVID-19 and Quran’s Code 19 but its outbreak may be an analogy as a warning for the God fearing to reflect and turn to Him for taking initiative to worship Him following His guidance through self-quarantining and isolating from the figure worshipers to save souls in the Hereafter for themselves and their families until if God wills to defeat the idol/figure worshipers.
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
