Egyptian preacher Mohammed Al-Hefnawi Al-Ansari said in a video that he uploaded to his YouTube page on April 8, 2020 that the coronavirus pandemic is actually a good thing because it enjoins good and forbids evil by causing Muslims and infidels alike to stop using cigarettes and hookahs and to shut down pubs, coffee shops, cinemas, and whorehouses. He prayed for Allah to remove the coronavirus from upon the Muslims and to use it to annihilate the infidels, tyrants, atheists, and Shi’ites.
Mohammed Al-Hefnawi Al-Ansari: “Thank you corona! This pandemic that has spread everywhere is good despite being a plague. When the people stopped enjoining good and forbidding evil, the coronavirus came to enjoin good and to forbid evil. By the order of Allah, Who has imposed this plague upon us, the coronavirus has made them shut down all the pubs. The coronavirus has made them shut down all the pubs. The coronavirus has made them shut down all the coffee shops.
“They have banned hookahs and cigarettes. The coronavirus has made them shut down cinemas all over the world – among Muslims and infidels alike. It happened in Islamic countries and in infidel countries alike. Thank you corona! The coronavirus has made them shut down all the whorehouses worldwide.
“Oh Allah, relieve the Islamic nation of the coronavirus, and use it to annihilate the infidels. Oh Allah, relieve the Islamic nation of the coronavirus, and use it to annihilate the tyrants, the infidels, and the atheists. Oh Allah, use the coronavirus to annihilate the Rafidite Shi’ites, and deliver the Muslims from this plague.”
