His Eminence Sheikh Aql of the Druze monotheistic faith (Tawhid), Sheikh Naeem Hasan issued the following statement:


O God, praise be to You in what we are in all our conditions and destinies, and we have to rely on You in good and bad times at every occasion.
In light of the increasing risk of the Corona epidemic that has confused the rulers and the people of the world and the high indicator of the escalation of the number of infected cases in Lebanon, which is realistically translated into a state of disability in front of the invasion of infection, and the excess of cases that urgently require intensive care, and the inability of hospitals and medical teams to cope with the influx of patients exceeding their capacity for carrying out its tasks, and the disastrous results that occurred in the midst of stormy crises of serious collapses of the economy, as well as financial conditions and others. And with the firm belief in the mercy and absolute will of God, which has never exempted a person from his commitment to duty and the urge to do good deeds in order to preserve what God has honored him with as "the best evaluation", and the use of reason in true faith is a matter of high value, at least In the acquittal and clarity of conscience.
Accordingly, with the start of the official decision to complete lockdown, we reiterate our call to comply and stop all forms of gatherings and events that may lead to the spread of the epidemic, as this is a respect for reason that does not abandon the heritage. We urge our people in the sect and our brothers and sisters in the path of monotheism (Tawhid), to spread the conviction of prevention, which is a value of religiousness, and adherence to it is a duty of fulfillment of the religious duties, and let the obligation of "preserving the community" be our paths in preventing the spread of disease to protect the brothers and sisters and all people from illness. This is good virtue in front of God, as He is always aware of what you do.
