As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
I believe that Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a game changer for humanity. For centuries, materialistic people have tried their best to take the world away from religion (of any kind) and offered rational thought and sensory perception as an alternative.
However, this is the first time, where religious authorities (from Haram to Vatican) have submitted to science.
The world is looking towards science for a way out (Vaccine, Medicine, Treatment) etc.
Science will find something and that cure will be ADVERTISED as triumph of science over God.
This is the first time (in my knowledge) the entire world is poised to accept the superiority of Science and submit to Science (as the deity).
The scientist who comes with a vaccine or treatment will be immediately worshipped by people who are SICK of staying at home, they are losing their jobs and want to get out of their misery.
The “Messiah” will be a scientist OR a group of Scientists.
