The Islamic Academy of Alabama’s Response to Covid-19 Health Emergency
قَالَ عَفَّانُ حَدَّثَنَا سَلِيمُ بْنُ حَيَّانَ، حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ مِينَاءَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ، يَقُولُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم " لاَ عَدْوَى وَلاَ طِيَرَةَ وَلاَ هَامَةَ وَلاَ صَفَرَ، وَفِرَّ مِنَ الْمَجْذُومِ كَمَا تَفِرُّ مِنَ الأَسَدِ ".
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, '(There is) no 'Adwa (no contagious disease is conveyed without Allah's permission). nor is there any bad omen (from birds), nor is there any Hamah, nor is there any bad omen in the month of Safar, and one should run away from the leper as one runs away from a lion.''
The health of our students, staff, and all our stakeholders is a top priority for the Islamic Academy of Alabama.
Given the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the area, some changes have been made to increase safety and health measures at our school. All students, teachers, and staff will be required to wear a mask during the first month of school. Further decisions regarding safety measures will be updated in correspondence with the local state and education departments. All teachers are highly encouraged to get vaccinated from the virus. **JCDH will be administering free vaccinations until August 6th.
Meanwhile, we urge you to do the following:
May Allah keep us all safe and healthy, and may a positive outcome be a renewed appreciation for each other and the role each of us has in the Ummah.
