Main Article Content

Fathatul Fallah Fathina L. Qonita


The purpose of writing this article is to discuss the theology of the Covid-19 pandemic in Gus Baha’s view and to provide knowledge to the public about attitudes in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic according to the Qur’an. This research is a qualitative library research with a theological approach. From this research, it is known that Gus Baha’, a moderate contemporary cleric, views the Covid-19 pandemic as a means for humans to become grateful servants. This is because humans as Gods creatures have the potential to be damaged as well as the earth we live in. With the grace of Allah SWT, the earth with all its potential damage, can become a place suitable for habitation by every living creature. The Covid-19 outbreak is much lighter than the actual potential damage to the earth. This is the importance of humans to always be grateful to Allah even though they are hit by a pandemic which also causes  economics problems to social problems because Allah will definitely test his servants so that Muslims have a steadfest heart and strong mentality (Surah Al-Baqarah [2]: 155). This pandemic is also a reminder for humans not to be arrogant and realize that they are weak creatures (QS. Al- An’am [6]: 162) but that does not mean surrender to the situation and conditions. The pandemic should be seen as a means to increase faith by being a grateful servant an social.
