Coronavirus: Alcohol intake allowed in Islam during dehydration’, others – Chief Imam

.

A National Chief Imam has said Muslims can take alcohol, which is forbidden (haram) in Islam, under some circumstances including periods of thirst and dehydration.

THE CHIEF IMAM OF THE REPUBLIC OF GHANA, SHEIK OSMAN NUHU HARUBUBU

The Chief Imam of the Republic of Ghana, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, dropped the hint while calling on Ghanaian Muslims faithful to adhere strictly to protocols announced by the government to combat the spread of the coronavirus disease including not gathering at the Mosque to pray. 

The Ghana Web reported the Chief Imam of making the pronouncement through his spokesperson, Sheikh Aremeyaw who urged Muslims to be law-abiding and respect government protocols on Covid-19 prevention. 

“Under the circumstance, the call by the Chief Imam for Muslims to adhere to the protocols falls under the feature of contextualization. The context within which we find ourselves dictate what we have to do.” sheikh Aremeyao said.

“There are several texts of the Holy Qur’an that suggest and give an indication of how modest and flexible the sharia is.” 

Sheikh Aremeyao cited situations where certain things which are not permitted under sharia, are permissible under certain situations. 

TheNewspad reports that the Ghanian government on Monday announced the suspension of congregational prayers in mosques.

The measure is aimed at curbing the Coronavirus pandemic and public safety.
