Both Imams Bukhari and Muslim have narrated a Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has said:
‘There is no ‘adwa [transmission of infectious disease] and no tiyarah [superstitious belief in bird omens].’
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5776, and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2224)
However, the following Hadith indicates that there are some contagious diseases. Modern science proves contagion like Coronavirus etc.
The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:
‘If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it; but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place.’
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5728, 5729, and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2219)
