The irruption and global spread of pandemic Covid-19 since the end of 2019 has led to a serious and a comprehensive chaos affecting almost all aspects of the life. The consequence resulted in an international concerns where the control of the pandemic went out of control by the World Health Organizations (WHO) as well as the developed countries. The pandemic looked as a biological war being launched by the giant countries USA and China particularly against the elderly people to trim down the world populations of them due to the increase the life span in the well developed countries and the increase in rate of birth in developing countries. The overall mortality has exceeded a few millions without any ironic action to stop spreading the virus nor protecting the lives. Most of the modern global measurements taken so far to overcome the crisis have failed to contain the pandemic. While all the man-made laws failed to contain the pandemic the measurements driven from the activation and application of the divine laws, represented in Islamic values e.g. faith values, could guarantee the overcome the worldwide crisis.

Role of Qur'an and Hadith in Character Building towards Re-evolving Prototypical Muslim Society
Man is the highest creation of Almighty Allah. He is equipped with the highest of potentialities and is left relatively free in his will, action and choice. He has shown man the right path, and the life of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) provides a perfect example for him. Islam, being a comprehensive way of life, encompasses a complete character system and Glorious Qur’an, as a compendium Book, contains multifarious excellent characters that teach the believers how to conduct their life accordingly. The importance of these excellent characters in Islam is so high so much that every Muslim is exhorted to possess excellent moral quality. It is on this basis that Islam brought down a plethora of universal and fundamental principles for guidance of humanity in almost every circumstance. To achieve these fundamental rights, it presents an effectual moral system that will make it easy for its adherents to achieve the desired goal. Almighty Allah however, through the Qur’an encourages Muslims to develop heart capable of discovering His pathway that governs and sustains the functional system in human generations. Every person is therefore responsible for his own actions, considering the fact that human nature is enslaved and enticed to committing sin, oppression, and polytheism. It is generally believed that Muslims without discipline and moral values are ineffective and valueless in their dealings. It is in line with this backdrop that this paper intends to explore the role of Qur’an and Hadith in character building stressing the Islamic moral values associated with them. To achieve the objectives of this research, this paper attempts to answer some basic questions with a view to unraveling the role of Qur’an and Hadith in character building towards evolving prototypical Muslim society. What are the excellent moral qualities? How do the Qur’an and Hadith advocate moral virtues such as patience, truthfulness, justice, thinking good about others, responding to the evil with good among others? How does the moral standard ensure prosperity of a Muslim individual or society? What are the factors that help grow the moral faculty of Muslim society in making them religiously inclined to good moral qualities? These and similar questions form the objectives of the study. The study also adopts analytical phenomenological methodology.
