Corona virus and infectious disease: What is Islam?

The Shariah does not agree to ban mosques for healthy people for fear of contagious diseases. There is no such example in the history of Islam.

However, those who are infected with the virus, or who have any initial signs of the virus, can be prevented from coming to the mosque.

But those who do not have the virus, can not be barred from coming to the mosque. Praying at the mosque is nothing but a piety.

وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن مَّنَعَ مَسَاجِدَ اللَّهِ أَن يُذْكَرَ فِيهَا اسْمُهُ وَسَعَىٰ فِي خَرَابِهَا ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ مَا كَانَ لَهُمْ أَن يَدْخُلُوهَا إِلَّا خَائِفِينَ ۚ لَهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا خِزْيٌ وَلَهُمْ فِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ [٢:١١٤

Who is more unjust than the one who forbids uttering His Name in the mosques of Allah and strives to destroy them? It is not permissible for them to enter mosques, but in a state of panic. For them is disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter there is a severe punishment. [Surah Al-Baqara-1]

Due to the suffering of other Muslims, descriptions of such persons are prohibited from coming to the mosque.

For example: عَنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ بْنِ شُعْبَةَ، قَالَ: أَكَلْتُ ثُومًا فَأَتَيْتُ مُصَلَّى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَقَدْ سُبِقْتُ بِرَكْعَةٍ، فَلَمَّا دَخَلْتُ الْمَسْجِدَ وَجَدَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ رِيحَ الثُّومِ، فَلَمَّا قَضَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ صَلَاتَهُ قَالَ: «مَنْ أَكَلَ مِنْ هَذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ فَلَا يَقْرَبَنَّا حَتَّى يَذْهَبَ رِيحُهَا» أَوْ «رِيحُهُ» فَلَمَّا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلَاةُ جِئْتُ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَقُلْتُ: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، وَاللَّهِ لَتُعْطِيَنِّي يَدَكَ، قَالَ: فَأَدْخَلْتُ يَدَهُ فِي كُمِّ قَمِيصِي إِلَى صَدْرِي فَإِذَا أَنَا مَعْصُوبُ الصَّدْرِ، قَالَ: «إِنَّ لَكَ عُذْرًا»

Al-Mughirah ibn Shu’ah (ra) is mentioned in the source. He said, “I came to study the prayer of the Prophet (peace be upon him) with the Muslims. Then a rak’at was finished. When I entered the mosque, the Prophet (peace be upon him) smelled garlic. He finished his prayer and said: “He who eats from this tree (garlic) must not come to us before the odor of his mouth is gone. When I finished the prayer, I came to the Messenger of Allah (সাল) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! By God! Give me your hand, of course. Mugirah (RA) said, “I put his hand inside my shirt and reached my chest.” I had a bandage on my chest. He said: This is a burden for you. [Sunnan Abu Dawood, Hadith No. 1228]

It is understood in the hadeeth, which causes others to suffer, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is discouraged to come to his congregation. As such, it is logical to forbid participating in mosques and masses of those who have coronary viruses, which have proven or signs.
