How Muslims have Responded to the Pandemic/Plandemic/Great Reset so far

Last Updated on June 15, 2021 by Hamad Subani

This post intends to cover the Muslim Response (or lack thereof) to the Pandemic/Plandemic/Great Reset, as well as their responses to specific components of this malady, be it lockdowns, vaccines, or prayer restrictions. Since Muslims span across several nations and continents, expecting a unified response is definitely out of question. We also discuss their opposition in light of established Islamic theology.


Armed Violence to those administering vaccines seems to be restricted to Afghanistan and parts of Pakistan. Such instances of violence are immediately covered up as “religious” violence by the mainstream media. But if that were the case, why is such violence usually directed towards the UN, its hospitals and its operations, rather than US troops? Take the case of a UN convoy which was attacked on 21st February 2021.

It is a well-known fact that the UN is active in vaccination campaigns in those regions, right now as well as before the Pandemic. In a 2011 incident, eight UN workers were killed by a mob. In a 2012 incident in Pakistan, five people administering polio vaccines were shot and killed. In the same year, killing of vaccination workers reached an all time high in Afghanistan. To quote an article which seems to be exaggerating the role of religion in the killings,

The anti-vaccine propaganda claimed that the polio vaccination campaigns aimed to sterilize the Muslim population, accusing the health workers delivering the vaccines of being CIA spies.

Taliban leaders also purported that vaccines contained pig fat, which is forbidden for Muslims. They spread this misinformation during Friday prayers in radical mosques, illegal radio shows, and radical newspapers.

Additionally, Taliban leaders banned immunization drives, and, starting in July 2012, they resorted to violence against vaccination health workers, killing 70 people.

The role of religion in the killings tends to be exaggerated. The killings have little to do with religion. It is a commonsense fact that people who have watched their loved ones and/or children being bombed and droned with impunity by an “International Coalition” simply cannot accept the fact that the same “International Coalition” wants to jab them to protect them from polio or Covid-19. In some cases, “adverse reactions” and “deaths” following vaccinations only confirm their fears. As confirmation that the violence is not exactly religious, we saw up to 300 attacks on vaccination workers in war-torn Congo in 2019 alone, which is a non-Muslim country. But like Afghanistan, it is also a victim of meddling by an “International Coalition.” There have been efforts to connect the violence in Congo to “Islamist rebels.” But it seems the violence flared up after people who received the vaccines started dying.

Those organizing these vaccine drives from their ivory towers in Switzerland seem to have no qualms about putting their underpaid staff at risk. And they are well aware of the opposition they face in these regions. In a September 2019 Report, the Swiss-based Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (hosted by the WHO) revealed extensive preparatory mechanisms for what would become known as the COVID-19 Pandemic. On page 25, they are worried exclusively about Afghanistan, Pakistan and Congo, and in coded spookspeak, refer to the threat posed by these regions to their Globalist goals. To quote,

Challenges to poliomyelitis (polio) eradication efforts in Afghanistan and Pakistan and those experienced while containing the tenth Ebola outbreak in the DRC vividly demonstrate the impact that a breakdown in citizens’ trust and social cohesion can have on health emergency response. Consequences include attacks on both national and international health-care workers and delays or stoppages in response efforts. In some countries, waning trust in public health and government officials together with cultural and religious beliefs lead to is decreasing vaccination rates and leading to the re-emergence of measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases, a phenomenon found in communities at all economic and educational levels.


There is nothing controversial about a fatwa. It is simply an opinion expressed by one(s) familiar with the religion. And those who accept the religiosity of the ones who expressed it are logically supposed to consider it binding. 

The WHO happily touts a fatwa of the European Council of Fatwa and Research on its official website, which permits vaccines. The Egyptian Darul Ifta not only allowed vaccines, but declared it a religious duty. The UAE Fatwa Council went one step ahead and declared that the vaccine could be used even if it contains pork by-products. The Saudi Arabia Grand Mufti allowed the vaccine to be administered during Ramadan. The Darul Ifta of Pakistan also allowed the vaccine no questions asked. Darul Qasim USA also allowed it (but disallowed vaccines developed from fetal tissue). The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America not only allowed vaccines, but also made an unsubstantiated and non-referenced statement on the safety of the Pfizer vaccine in a fatwa dated 12/13/2020. To quote,

AMJA was also informed by trustworthy Muslim physicians that the Pfizer vaccine that has now been approved by the FDA has been studied on 40,000 participants (20,000 of them received the actual vaccines), and for more than two months, none of them had serious side effects. This surpasses the needed numbers for such trials and for a period that exceeds the period in which serious side effects usually take place. It must be said, though, that such numbers and duration may not be sufficient to rule out the possibility of rare complications, which may happen with any vaccine or medicine. While we should continue to monitor the developments, such possibility should not, for now, and after the approval by great majority, prevent us from availing ourselves of this vaccine. It also seems that the Moderna vaccine is following the same trajectory.

On that date, the Pfizer vaccine still had no approval of the FDA, and was released under an “Emergency Use Authorization.” The “trustworthy Muslim physicians” being quoted conveniently do not name themselves.

But among Muslim communities, many “official” religious bodies and their fatwas are considered to be an inside joke. This is because there is no place or need for a “religious bureaucracy/Papacy/Diocese” in Islam. And Muslims associated with such bodies usually become the first to be compromised (though their fatwas continue to work on the gullible). Almost all of the aforementioned fatwas are fairly short, and are centred around the desperate “need to save human lives,” which was based around the exaggerated media coverage of the outbreak at that time. 

On the other hand, the world’s first fatwa against vaccines was issued in Indonesia in August 2019. It was against the MMR vaccine. To quote,

For the 225 million Muslims who call Indonesia’s 17,500 islands home, the supreme authority on religious affairs is the Indonesian Ulama Council, or the MUI. So when the central MUI issued a fatwa last August backing up a regional council’s decision that the measles and rubella (MR) vaccine was considered haram, or forbidden, many conservative families across the archipelago refused to vaccinate. 

The reason was that the innoculation contained elements derived from pigs, and the fatwa — a ruling on a point of Islamic law — earned the dubious accolade of being the first known in the world to be issued against a vaccine. 

The central MUI, chaired until recently by the incumbent president’s new running mate Ma’ruf Amin, later walked back its condemnation. It said that the prohibited porcine elements were superseded by the risk to public health, and that parents should inoculate their children despite the haram label. But the damage had already been done. Especially in one province: geographically isolated Aceh, the only state in Indonesia permitted to enforce Sharia law.

In other words, the second fatwa did not carry the same weight as the first fatwa because the Muslims of Aceh were not stupid. Lets hope they still aren’t.

Why Vaccines can never be Accepted by Genuine Muslims (Even if they don’t kill and disable as many people as the current Covid-19 vaccines)

Who is Claiming that we are in a Pandemic and that Vaccines are the Only Effective Antidote?

These folks:

Most reasonable folks will agree that they are certified scoundrels.

And who are the Vaccine makers? Here is what a popular article has to say:

The four major companies who are making these covid vaccines are/have either:

  1. Never brought a vaccine to market before covid (Moderna and Johnson & Johnson).

  2. Are serial felons (Pfizer, and Astra Zeneca).

  3. Are both (Johnson & Johnson).

Moderna had been trying to “Modernize our RNA” (thus the company name)–for years, but had never successfully brought ANY product to market–how nice for them to get a major cash infusion from the government to keep trying.

In fact, all major vaccine makers (save Moderna) have paid out tens of billions of dollars in damages for other products they brought to market when they knew those products would cause injuries and death–see Vioxx, Bextra, Celebrex, Thalidomide, and opioids as a few examples.

If drug companies willfully choose to put harmful products in the market, when they can be sued, why would we trust any product where they have NO liability?

In case it hasn’t sunk in, let me reiterate…3 of the 4 covid vaccine makers have been sued for products they brought to market even though they knew injuries and deaths would result.

Let me reiterate this point:

Given the free pass from liability, and the checkered past of these companies, why would we assume that all their vaccines are safe and made completely above board?

Where else in life would we trust someone with that kind of reputation?

To me that makes as much sense as expecting a remorseless, abusive, unfaithful lover to become a different person because a judge said deep down they are a good person.

No. I don’t trust them.

No liability. No trust.

Let me add that J&J was caught putting asbestos in baby talcum powder.

Of course this does not include Chinese vaccines, which are being used in Muslim countries. Any logical Muslim would avoid the biological products of a country engaged in a genocide of its local Muslim population. Neither does this include the Indian vaccine COVAXIN. But we learn that COVAXIN is made by the same Western interests.

In other words, more scoundrels are making vaccines.

Now what does the Quran say about scoundrels making tall claims?

You who believe, if some scoundrel should come up to you with some piece of news, clear up the facts lest you afflict some folk out of ignorance, and some morning feel regretful for what you may have done.

Quran 49:6. Trans. T. B. Irving

Did those who offered fatwas in favour of the vaccine bother to investigate? No, they brainlessly followed the same scoundrels who two decades ago, sold them a strange conspiracy theory of hijacked planes being flown into the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.

Now you may argue that those who offered the fatwas in favour of the vaccine do not have the expertise to investigate who was making the implicit claim that:

  1. There was a Pandemic.
  2. That some specific vaccines (as opposed to other medicinal antidotes) would save you from it.

In that case, they had an obligation to shut up. If they chose to follow Dr. Fauci and “Trust the his Science™,” then they should never have invoked religious authority. They should have followed him on a personal level.

Some Vaccine Ingredients are Forbidden to Muslims

In the fatwas rushed out in support of vaccines, mention was made that yes, vaccines may indeed have ingredients forbidden to Muslims. But its OK because:

  • You are ingesting them to save lives.
  • They are present in trace quantities.
  • They were used in the production of the vaccines, and not in the actual vaccine.


One ingredient which is forbidden to all Muslims hands down is pork, in all its forms and even if it is in minute quantities. I cannot get into specifics but the idea behind forbidding certain meat types (such as pigs and carnivores) is to prevent humans from spiritually acquiring their traits. While most vaccine manufacturers denied the use of pork as an ingredient, it is still unclear whether or not it was used in all variants of their Covid-19 vaccine. To quote,

But demand, existing supply chains, cost and the shorter shelf life of vaccines not containing porcine gelatin means the ingredient is likely to continue to be used in a majority of vaccines for years, said Dr. Salman Waqar, general secretary of the British Islamic Medical Association.

Spokespeople for Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca have said that pork products are not part of their COVID-19 vaccines. But limited supply and preexisting deals worth millions of dollars with other companies means that some countries with large Muslim populations, such as Indonesia, will receive vaccines that have not yet been certified to be gelatin-free.

So now you know why some the earlier “rushed” fatwas categorically allowed pork in vaccines.

Even for non-Muslims, gelatin in vaccines has been regarded as problematic, as it is associated with allergic reactions to the vaccine.

Fetal Cells from Aborted Babies

Then there is the issue of the use of fetal cells from aborted babies. Vaccines produced by the following developers do that.

  • CanSino Biologics, Inc./Beijing Institute of Biotechnology
  • University of Oxford/AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD
  • Janssen Research & Development USA
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • ImmunityBio/NantKwest

To quote,

In four of the vaccines, the human fetal cells are used as miniature “factories” to generate vast quantities of adenoviruses, disabled so that they cannot replicate, that are used as vehicles to ferry genes from the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. When the adenoviruses are given as a vaccine, recipients’ cells begin to produce proteins from the coronavirus, hopefully triggering a protective immune response.

The fifth vaccine, which has shown promise in monkeys and is headed for human trials as soon as this summer, is what is known as a protein subunit vaccine. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh use HEK-293 cells [a fetal cell line] to manufacture the coronavirus’ spike protein—a vital part of its structure—which is used to trigger an immune response. The vaccine is delivered through a skin patch with 400 tiny needles. [Going by this logic, other protein sub-unit vaccines like EpiVacCorona, RBD-Dimer, NOVAVAX, SOBERANA 02, Sanofi-GSK vaccine and the V451 vaccine are likely to have also used fetal cells]

The fetal cell lines are key to producing both types of vaccine. [………..]

“The use of cells from electively aborted fetuses for vaccine production makes these five COVID-19 vaccine programs unethical, because they exploit the innocent human beings who were aborted,” Prentice and a co-author—molecular biologist James Sherley, a Lozier Institute associate scholar and director of the adult stem cell company Asymmetrex—wrote in a position paper published last month.


The Trump administration has restricted the use of human fetal tissue from elective abortions in biomedical research. One year ago, it adopted a policy that forbids researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from using fetal tissue from elective abortions in their studies. And it imposed an extra layer of review on non-NIH scientists seeking agency funding to do research using such tissue. But the policy did not stop either group from using decades-old fetal cell lines like HEK-293 and PER.C6.

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which emerged later, also uses fetal cells. To quote,

To make their virus vector vaccine, Johnson & Johnson infects PER.C6 fetal cell line cells with adenovirus. All PER.C6 cells used to manufacture the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are descended from tissue taken from a 1985 elective abortion that also took place in the Netherlands. 

The Sputnik V vaccine and the Convidecia vaccine may also be using fetal cells, as they are also a Replication-deficient adenovirus (Viral Vector) vaccine, just like AstraZeneca.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines used fetal cell lines for the development of their vaccines. To quote,

When it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines currently approved for emergency use, neither the Pfizer nor Moderna vaccines used fetal cell lines during the development or production phases. (So, no fetal cell lines were used to manufacture the vaccine, and they are not inside the injection you receive from your doctor.) However, both companies used the fetal cell line HEK 293 in the confirmation phase to ensure the vaccines work. All HEK 293 cells are descended from tissue taken from a 1973 elective abortion that took place in the Netherlands.

Going by that logic, all m-RNA vaccines (such as the CVnCoV vaccine) may have also done the same.

There is a disturbing revelation from Catholic sources that the cell lines were taken from “live” fetuses. To quote,

There are a number of fetal cell lines in existence right now. There’s WI-38, MRC-5, HEK-293, PER C-6, and WALVAX-2; WALVAX-2 is not currently being used in any vaccines, but does have the potential to be used and is currently used in therapeutic treatments. As Acker and I agreed, most people have this understanding that it was one or two babies that died and will simply dismiss these cell lines.  

Acker speaks about her research into the HEK-293 cell line specifically, and talks about the number that’s at the end of that cell line name. “HEK” stands for Human Embryonic Kidney and the “293” actually reveals the number of experiments that a specific researcher did to develop that cell line.  

It doesn’t mean there were two hundred and ninety-three abortions, but for two hundred and ninety-three experiments, you would certainly need far more than one abortion. We’re talking probably hundreds of abortions,” Acker shares.  

Acker goes on to discuss why researchers would choose a fetal cell line over an adult cell line. The details boil down to one answer: because they’ll last longer, having a much longer lifespanHowever, these cell lines encounter some dangerous side effects, such as the genes are given cancer promoting genes (but more on that inside the interview).  

Acker dispels the myth that these cell lines are created using spontaneous abortions, simply by understanding that these cells have to be gathered within five minutes of the abortion. A miscarriage would simply not provide cells that were alive enough for researchers to be able to use the cells.  

This is where things get very disturbing, because in most cases it’s not a “simple abortion,” but rather, Acker says:  

“They will actually deliver these babies via cesarean section. The babies are still alive when the researchers start extracting the tissue; to the point where their heart is still beating, and they’re generally not given any anesthetic, because that would disrupt the cells that the researchers are trying to extract. 

So, they’re removing this tissue, all the while the baby is alive and in extreme amounts of pain. So, this makes it even more sadistic.” 

Inactivated virus vaccines such as the Chinese CoronaVac, the Chinese Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV, the Chinese Sinopharm WIBP-CorV, the Indian COVAXIN, Covivac and Valneva do not utilize mRNA, Viral Vectors or protein subunits. As such they do not use fetal cells. However, some may use gelatin.

The Forbidden remains Forbidden

The Prophet ﷺ said: Allah has sent down both the disease and the cure, and He has appointed a cure for every disease, so treat yourselves medically, but use nothing unlawful.

Abu Darda◌ؓ, quoted in the Abu Dawud Hadith Collection

Tariq ibn Suwayd or Suwayd ibn Tariq◌ؓ asked the Prophet ﷺ about wine, but he forbade it. He again asked him, but he forbade him. He said to him: Prophet of Allah, it is a medicine. The Prophet ﷺ said: No it is a disease.”

The Abu Dawud Hadith Collection

The Prophet ﷺ said: “Verily, Allah has not made your cure in that which he has forbidden for you.”

Umm Salamah◌ؓ, quoted in the Ibn Hibban Hadith Collection

These sayings of the Prophet of Islamﷺ make it more or less clear that nothing good is expected to come out of any treatment involving forbidden or questionable ingredients. Some thinkers also believe that inactivated virus particles are a questionable ingredient, but we won’t be going into that. Some recent cases have shown that they are definitely not “inactivated.”

Just two days after receiving his first dose of China’s Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine, the Prime Minister of Pakistan tested positive for Covid-19. But since he has access to top docs, he recovered.

As you sow, so shall you reap

Some Muslim countries such as UAE and Bahrain (with Saudi Arabia not far behind), went overboard with vaccines, becoming the most vaccinated countries in the world. But they are now facing a Covid-19 surge higher than India! Data shows that their surges spiked when they introduced vaccines. The question is why they didn’t taken corrective action and ban the vaccines now that the harm is self-evident? There are whispers that their Health Authorities (and maybe even their Religious Authorities) had been compromised early on by The Powers That Be to avoid a repeat of the scenario that unfolded in Aceh, Indonesia in 2019.

Modification of Prayer Rituals is Explicitly Forbidden

How Muslims have prayed since the last 1399 years.
How Muslims have been forced to pray at some mosques since last year.

Anas also relates that the Prophet ﷺ said: ‘Stand close together in your rows, keep them near each other and stand neck to neck. By Him in whose hand is my life, I see the devil entering between the gaps as do the small lambs.’

The Tragedy of Muslim “Thinkers” in the West

My father had the rare opportunity to meet the venerated Islamic thinker Abul A’la Maududi in Buffalo, where he had stopped during a visit to USA. My father wanted to ask him if it was OK to take up residence in North America after having migrated from rural India. Maududi asked him why he migrated in the first place. My father answered that his village in rural India was afflicted by extreme poverty, and he had a lot of hungry mouths to feed back home. Maududi replied that in that case, he must do what he can to help his poor family, and then migrate back India! Maududi told him that only Muslims devoted to FULLTIME propagation of religion, and living TOGETHER in their own, independent communities were justified in living in North America. Maududi warned that the local culture was too strong, and would carry him away like a current in a river, and faith-wise, he would be better off in India! He said “Those Muslims who have made themselves at home in North America are sitting on filth.” He then smilingly mused out loud, “Plant the seeds of lemons and expect mangoes?”

I have always been skeptical of Muslim “thinkers” who have made themselves at home in the West (There is a difference between living and making oneself “at home”). And this crisis has shown that despite their Western degrees, access to Scientific information, and awareness of their supposed individual rights and freedoms, many are not able to exercise basic critical thinking. The more obnoxious ones can even be pushed into service to act as conduits of the Criminal Elite.

Some famous Muslim Youtubers based in the West tried to promote vaccines like a bunch of Instagram® influencers. Others have tried to stay away from “controversy” by burying their heads in the sand and taking no position, pretending nothing has happened and that everything will soon return to normal.

    Are you familiar with Sheikh Imran Hosein? He’s an expert in political science and Islamic eschatology. He is suspicious of the vaccine.
