Kerala Hindu doctor praised for reciting Islamic prayer for her Muslim covid patient as she dies.
A Muslim covid pneumonia patient’s last rites (Islamic prayer) were performed by a Hindu woman doctor for which she is being praised and admired. The patient was in ICU on the ventilator for a couple of weeks in a private hospital of Pattambi of Palakkad where her family members were not allowed due to covid protocols.
Dr. Rekha Krishna from Sevana hospital and Research Centre said the ventilator of the patient was removed on the 17th of May as her condition was deteriorating. We felt that we could do nothing in this condition and informed her family about her condition.
Dr. Rekha said, she recited Kalima ( La Ilaha Illallah Muhammadur Rasool Ullah) in her ears at the deathbed as she was feeling difficulty leaving this earthly abode. She took few deep breaths and left this world.
The doctor said that her act was not planned. It just happened at the spur of the moment as she was born and brought up in UAE, and knows all the customs and rituals of Muslims. She was never discriminated against because of her faith when she was in the gulf and gave back respect when she got a chance.
She said that she was not thinking like a doctor but a human at that moment as she was brought up in a surrounding where every religion is respected. She explained the problems of covid patients as they feel lonely and isolated without their family around them.
She as a person knowing Arabic recited the prayer understanding the meaning “there is no god except Allah and Muhammad is his prophet”. She gained huge respect among people. She said she had no intention of sharing this publicly. She just shared it with her colleague and this act of her got viral as a wildfire.
Many Muslim scholars have congratulated Dr. Rekha for Taking the initiative to perform customs that are usually performed by the family of the deceased.
