ISLAMIC LAW'S STABILITY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC; EGYPTIAN CASE STUDIES
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on Egypt's evolving religious reality. The purpose of this essay is to provide a summary of Islamic law's stability in Egypt during the pandemic. This study takes a socio cultural perspective by collecting data from observations made in Cairo, Egypt. The study's findings indicated that all segments of Egyptian Muslims were unified in their opposition to the Covid-19 epidemic, including the government, religious leaders (in this case, Dar al-Ifta'), and civil society organizations. However, Muslims in Egypt at the time were generally fearful of foreigners in public spaces, and even among them there were those who publicly expressed their opposition and blamed outsiders of being responsible for the introduction of Covid 19. On the other hand, the Egyptian people have been hit by an economic crisis as a result of the sector's stagnation, which is one of their primary sources of revenue. It is hoped that Muslims in Egypt will be patient and prudent in their response to the COVID-19 problem and will work cooperatively to assist and support the Egyptian government's program and to implement the fatwa given by the Ulema of the Dar al-Ifta' institution
