The representation of religiosity practices among covid 19 diseases
Novel Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) originating from China has rapidly crossed borders, infecting people throughout the whole world. This phenomenon has led to a massive public reaction; the media has been reporting continuously across borders to keep all informed about the pandemic situation. All these things are creating a lot of concern for people leading to heightened levels of anxiety. This paper focus of social Muslim ummah that different from the generation of prophet Muhammad s.a.w when it comes to observing voluntary worship practices in Novel Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) disease. After prophet Muhammad s.a.w and the following salaf generation, religious practices of the Muslim ummah have been polarized by the discipline of the fiqh knowledge. Most Muslims have misunderstood this discipline of knowledge. Muslims do not just make fiqh as a matter of ruling in carrying out a practice, but fiqh has been turned into a position to carry out a practice. An example is the prayer in congregation where in the perspective of fiqh, it is a non-obligatory act and just a voluntary deed. Voluntary is defined as something that if it is done, one will be rewarded for it but it also does not matter if one were to abandon it. People who are dependent on rulings would psychologically find it easy to leave the congregation prayer, because the ruling states that it is okay to do so as long as the obligatory prayer is still performed. What this means is people perform such deeds not to follow the context of the people during the time of prophet Muhammad s.a.w, but because they preferred the ruling context set by the fiqh. There is a need to intensify the awareness and address the religiosity issues of people during this COVID-19 pandemic.
