Abstract

The Coronavirus crisis has undoubtedly changed the landscape of the world. The pandemic has radically changed the way of life of most of the seven billion people in the global community. In the past, people living in uncertain times have sought solace and comfort in God, through the medium of faith. This paper considers historical perspectives of past epidemics and pandemics, comparing and contrasting the themes that arise through relevant religious teachings of Islam and Christianity, with the aim of identifying sources of consolation to contemporary adherents in the current crisis.
