Vol. 28 No. 1 (2020)
Intellectual Discourse, Vol. 28, No. 1 (2020) is being published at a time
when the world is facing an extraordinary challenge to humanity posed
by the COVID-19 pandemic. As of June 9, 2020, the people infected
with COVID-19 numbered 7,211,300 world-wide with nearly 409,009
people dead. However, about 3,550,922 people have recovered from
COVID-19 world-wide. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the world
upside down by severely damaging the world economy and changing
the way we live our lives, perhaps forever. Despite the difficulties,
governments and scientists around the world are racing against the clock
to come up with a vaccine against COVID-19. The current situation has
created an atmosphere of immense mental pressure on all of us. I would
like to thank the contributors to this volume who, despite the enormous
difficulties they faced, have been successful in submitting their papers.
Let us all seek Allah (SWT)’s blessings in the eradication of COVID-19.
