Chicago-based Islamic scholar Sheikh Omar Baloch said in a lesson he uploaded to his YouTube channel on March 22, 2020 that the coronavirus will infect every human being at some point, that people need to accept the will of Allah, and that the world is about to change. He encouraged Muslims to only buy goods from other Muslims, and he suggested that some communities should even establish their own currencies if possible because the current cash currencies are about to lose their value. Furthermore, he said that Muslims should acquire firearms and establish systems of security because their Trump-loving neighbors don’t necessarily love them very much.
