Our Stance on the Covid-19 Pandemic

The stance of the Ahmadi Religion of Peace and Light regarding the Covid-19 pandemic is that it is a plague and punishment from God, in response to the sins carried by humanity in allowing the destruction of the earth by rejecting God’s messenger. 


The leader and spiritual guide of the Ahmadi Religion of Peace and Light, Abdullah Hashem Aba Al-Sadiq, has made a statement in one of his sermons regarding the Covid pandemic.

As a religion, our perspective regarding the pandemic of Covid is that this is a punishment that is the likes of that which fell upon Pharaoh and his people due to their defiance of God. 


The gospels speak of plagues and pestilences that fell on the people due to their rejection of God and His messengers.


From the Book of Amos:

In the case of Pharaoh and his people, the first plague was sent as a warning. Their continuous defiance caused Him to send many plagues.


And as such, in the End Times, the Mahdi inherits from the previous prophets and messengers, and thus it has been written in many scriptures that during this time there will be pestilence, plague and death. 

What is our Perspective on the Covid Vaccines?

We as a people hold it as our religious right to refuse the vaccinations that are being posed as a prevention from the disease of Covid-19. We do not see these supposed vaccinations as effective against God’s punishment, rather we see them as a part of the harmful consequences of the Covid plague. 
Therefore, to be clear, we do not take the Covid-19 vaccine in any form.

We reserve the right as a religious people to believe in the cure of this disease to come from God, and that He has in fact sent a cure. We believe that the cure is with the divinely appointed guide of today, and that is Abdullah Hashem Aba Al-Sadiq. Scripture is filled with evidence of messengers of God curing their people and granting them health through God’s mercy.

Therefore, the vaccine is considered by the believers of this religion to be ineffective, and the reason for many negative side effects. We see that these side effects are harmful. 

The cure of the disease of Covid-19 is with the Imam of the time, Abdullah Hashem Aba Al-Sadiq.
