 The coronavirus (COVID-2019) has been declared as a global pandemic by world health organization (WHO) on March 8, 2020. Globally, there are more than 199 countries and territories confronting the COVID-19 and almost all the Islamic countries are in the list of infected countries. Islam is the second largest religion in the world with 1.8 billion (24.1% of total population 7.3 billion) Muslims living in both Muslim and non-Muslim countries. The mainstay in prevention of COVID-19 pandemic is adoption of precautionary measures and guidelines issued by WHO. After the super spreader event in the city of Qom, Iran, a general perception established that religions including Islam accelerated the spread of coronavirus. So, it is being imagined that Islamic teachings are against in the adoption of preventive measures. In this short brief, it has been clarified that Islamic teachings are not in contravene with the WHO guidelines regarding COVID-2019. The myths and misinformation about Islamic teachings are being nullified as the acts of Prophet of Islam and his companions are very much in support of todays’ experts and health organizations issued guidelines and instructions.
