Be prepared to catch the swine flu virus.
At my workplace 4 people are off work due to swine flu. Another one, who I tried to keep away from today, has a daughter that is infected with the virus. This is just at my place of work. It's spreading like wildfire! WASH THOSE BLOODY HANDS! SNEEZE IN A BLOODY TISSUE! :enough!:

We probably will all get it. The virus is going to be around for a good three years yet, and it will continue to mutate.

So what? Take the same precautions as you would for any other virus – i.e. basic hygiene, and if you do catch it keep away from the elderly or babies in order to avoid passing the virus onto vulnerable members of society.

I am tempted to say we will not get the flu, but nothings definite... And I don't want to jynx myself. I just wanted to point out, there must be a sin we are committing that made Allah send a disease amonst us.

Because nobody told us those figures.

I must admit, I have been amazed to hear how many people die each year from the common flu.
Still, it is a humbling thought that those microscopic viruses may have the power to threaten the life of us humans, who love to think of ourselves as able to deal with everything!

Keep healthy everybody! :)

The evidence for that is:
42:30 Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because of the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness.

How would you know which sin it is Allah is punishing you for?
You and the entire nation, or even world ...?

What about people who try to abstain from sin, but still get ill?
What about this being a test?

How do we know whether this is a test from Allah, or his punishment for our sins? :?

We're not all going to get it, God willing. And even if we do, it's not as bad as we're made to think it is. It's just moral panic and media over hype. It will pass, inshaAllah.

Make sure you look out for people in your neighbourhood, who may be effected - people may need shopping done or prescriptions collected.

We have to analyse our own deeds to find out where we went wrong.
It could be a test for some people and punishment for others.

Sometimes, good practising people also get stuck with a calamity or accident. It is sent by Allah to raise their status in Jannah and to forgive their sins.
And even for the sinners, they are not usually punished in this world. Allah sends these small misfortunes as a sign to them, so that they return back to Deen.
Allah says: And indeed We will make them taste of the Penalty of this (life) prior to the supreme Penalty, in order that they may (repent and) return. [32:21]

If there are good pious people living alongwith the sinners, they too will get afflicted with the punishment in this world if Allah decides to punish, but on the Day of Judgement, they will be raised separately.

Many more people will worry themselves to death over getting the swine flu than those who actually get it. Don't worry, you won't get that sick from it. It's not the deadly monster that the media would have us believe. Many more people will die from cholera in Africa this year.
