How can we defeat Corona Virus?

Despite all of our advanced technology and science we are still unable to comprehend and accept the basic concept of human weakness and vulnerability which can be proved by the fact that to this day scientists have been unable to find a cure of a simple virus.
Virus, a tiny being which doesn’t even leave behind a single fossil can and have infected us humans for more than centuries. Interestingly, no nation came out and declared war on it nor they put it in
concentration camps or detention camps nor they turned its infected people into refugees nor they bombarded it with the help of allies by claiming that this virus is trying to take our culture, our lifestyle away from us. No, humans only limit such barbaric actions for their fellow humans, a small virus is way out of their league.

Surah Al-Anfal Verse no.25

But Why Us?
People often question that if plague or epidemic is a wrath from Allah swt then why does good people get affected by it? The simple answer is, it’s a wake up call for those who are good and an opportunity to reflect on their actions.

Narrated ‘Aisha (r.a): (the wife of the Prophet) I asked Allah’s Apostle about the plague. He told me that it was a Punishment sent by Allah on whom he wished, and Allah made it a source of mercy for the believers, for if one in the time of an epidemic plague stays in his country patiently hoping for Allah’s Reward and believing that nothing will befall him except what Allah has written for him, he will get the reward of a martyr.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book #56, Hadith #680)
صلي الله عليه و آله وصحبه وسلم

How Can We Defeat It?
Our brain has a broadcasting station called Hypothalamus which release hormones of happiness, sadness, anger, fear etc. The only way for a body to be healthy is when you have a stable hypothalamus. It gains it’s power through human will power(ironic, isn’t it?) and the only thing which stands in the way of human willpower is fear, either it’s a fear of death or fear of unknown.
Usually people get scared when they are not well informed about something, when they can’t find a single solution or have too many insecurities. 
“What will happen next?”
“What will happen to my kids?”
“Who will provide me food?”
“Will i turn into dust and nothingness?”

So many questions, but not enough knowledge and from here the fear take over our will power making us weak physically and spiritually.
For a God fearing person, these fears are limited.
Why? because he has faith. He knows that The One who created him will take care of his kids and The One who kept him alive and safe for nine months when he was unaware of this world, will keep him alive even during an epidemic.

The best way to defeat virus for a layman is to have knowledge about his surrounding, have a good diet, physical fitness and most importantly your connection to God (dua) is essential for a strong will power; strong immune system. Most corona Virus deaths are due to weak immune system not damage caused by the virus itself.
A God fearing person has his priorities right and he/she knows that they have to work on them and continue on to become more closer to Allah swt. That’s the only way we can defeat this virus.
