By Dr.Aslam Abdullah

Covid-19 Vaccine with the claim of 90% effectiveness is finally here. The credit to develop it goes to a Muslim couple from Turkey, Physicians Ugur Sahin, and Oezlem Tuereci. The 55-year old physician and his 53-year old wife formed the dream team that gave the world a real hope tor the Vaccine. Pfizer and BioNTech, claimed the product is 90 percent effective and would soon be available. It’s a breakthrough in the world of medicine.

Born in Turkey and raised in Germany, Sahin belongs to an immigrant family that worked in a Ford factory. He became a physician with a specialization in immunotherapy. His wife, Oezlem Tuereci, 53, is a board member of BioNTech, a company owned by her husband. She is the daughter of a Turkish physician who also migrated to Germany.

Şahin was born in Iskenderun, Turkey. At the age of four, he immigrated to Germany with his parents. His father in a Ford factory, and he studied medicine at the University of Cologne. He graduated in 1990 and obtained his Ph.D. In 1993. He spent the next eight years in residency at the Saarland University Hospital. He joined the University of Mainz in 2000 and was old his family immigrated to Germany, where his father worked in a Ford car factory. He studied medicine at the University of Cologne, graduating in 1990, and obtained a Ph.D. from the same university in 1993. Following an eight-year residency at the Saarland University Hospital, he joined the University of Mainz faculty in 2000 and achieved the professorship in 2008.

He married his current wife, Özlem Türeci, in 2002, and they went on to have a teenage daughter together. Even on the day of their wedding, they found time to work. Both love teaching and research and co-founded a company to develop cancer immunotherapy tools. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation invested $55 million in the company. Both are humble and lead a modest life despite being among the 100 wealthiest people in Germany. Sahin still rides his old bike. Their contribution to the Covid-19 Vaccine is a remarkable event in the world’s history, giving hope to millions who suffer from the pandemic. There are 51 million Coronavirus Cases with a death toll of 1.3 million. The cases are on the rise. The Vaccine will enable people to recover and countries to revive their economies.

The couple deserves a Nobel prize for their contribution, and the world owes its respect to them. The Islamophobes once considered their faith community and country misfits for human civilization. Yet they proved, the community is dynamic and capable of producing individuals who care for humanity and struggle to make it better.

      1. No brother Allah does require anybody to honour, he is already the most high, almighty,exalted. It is we the humans who needs help and praise from Allah, he is creator, nourisher, and sustainer,.World media maligns Islam as Islam is against the current investment and earning system. This business is totally controlled by the zionist. And definitely Ignorant who support this act of maligning Islam will fail in the test of worldly life and burn in hell fire for ever.

        1. Idiotic nonsense! Why then is he after the humans? We don’t hear humans asking for God’s praise, but it’s always they who praise him wishing for the heaven. Why can’t God give them the heaven without having them to worship him and follow a certain path. What’s the proof there’s a creator, sustainer and nourisher? If there’s one, why do some get sustenance, nourishment and others don’t. Probably, this Muslim couple would not have been able to discover the vaccine in a typical Muslim country, such as Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country. There can be an exception, any way. Generally, Muslims don’t use their brain except for praising their God who has no such control on their lives or anything else on earth as they claim in praising him.

          1. Well, all of the questions you ask have simple and straightforward answers. You claim Muslims don’t use their brains. I’ll challenge you now to use your own brain in answering some of the questions. If you want to know where you were created by someone, then study your body’s systems and see how it has been logically designed, with high level of complexity and order. And order does not happen by itself. Some logical being must be behind it.

            If you were to enter a forest and find an uncompleted building with blocks orderly arranged and the corners sharply formed, you’d conclude at once that a human being must have been here. That’s because of the order you see, and you know no animal is capable of creating such an order. The human body is even more complex and more orderly. Scientists are still studying it and discovering new things about our system.

            Take the reproductive system as an example. How does your body know that it should produce a projection (your penis as a man) to match the woman’s own (vagina). How does the body figure out that the woman’s body should be the one producing the overrides. Look at how the woman’s reproductive system is designed to conceive, nourish the baby in the womb, provide an easy way for the baby to come out, feed the baby from the breast. How do you explain such a complex and brilliant order.

            How did humans come into being? by apes? why aren’t more apes turning into humans today? it should be a continuous process if that were true. Even the ape has complex and orderly body like the human. No logical human would agree that these things can come about randomly. Some intelligent being must have designed it that way.

            This is only one example. You’ll see this complex and highly efficient order all around you – in plants, animals, the ecosystem, etc. That’s how you can use logic to find answers to these questions you ask.

            Regarding your second claim that Muslims can’t do anything in their countries, that only shows your lack of understanding of history. Read up on Muslim contribution to the development of science, mathematics and medicine. We laid the foundation for the renaissance. And we’ll take it back.

            If in the end you were to discover that there is Truly a God who created all the things we see and don’t see, you’ll agree that this God deserves even more praise than anything the Muslims are doing now.

          2. Right on

            You sound like a an atheist crossed with a 2 legged donkey faced monster and have a brain filled with acidic stupid hatred.

            If you can’t see the signs of the creator look at your drunken face in the mirror and ask who created that imbecile??

          3. الَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِالۡغَيۡبِ وَ يُقِيۡمُوۡنَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقۡنٰهُمۡ يُنۡفِقُوۡنَۙ‏

            Who believe in the Unseen, and establish worship, and spend of that We have bestowed upon them;

            اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا سَوَآءٌ عَلَيۡهِمۡ ءَاَنۡذَرۡتَهُمۡ اَمۡ لَمۡ تُنۡذِرۡهُمۡ لَا يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ‏َ

            As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not.
            خَتَمَ اللّٰهُ عَلَىٰ قُلُوۡبِهِمۡ وَعَلٰى سَمۡعِهِمۡ‌ؕ وَعَلٰىٓ اَبۡصَارِهِمۡ غِشَاوَةٌ  وَّلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ عَظِيۡمٌ‏

            Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom.
            وَاِذَا قِيۡلَ لَهُمۡ اٰمِنُوۡا كَمَاۤ اٰمَنَ النَّاسُ قَالُوۡاۤ اَنُؤۡمِنُ كَمَاۤ اٰمَنَ السُّفَهَآءُ‌ ؕ اَلَاۤ اِنَّهُمۡ هُمُ السُّفَهَآءُ وَلٰـكِنۡ لَّا يَعۡلَمُوۡنَ

            And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: shall we believe as the foolish believe? are not they indeed the foolish? But they know not.

          4. Your existence itself is the proof of Existence if God..
            HE sent Prophets with HIS revealetions for the guidance of whole Humanity ..
            Every human being is being tested in this planet and will get the result in Hereafter as per his actions ..
            And furthermore your IQ Level is restricted to a certain limit .
            Holy Qur’aan says you are blessed with the knowledge but a little…

          5. I didn’t comment sofar and you are telling , duplicate comment.
            My new comment is
            ” Everybody is explaining as per his/her knowledge.
            And the Holy Qur’aan says that you are blessed with the knowledge but a little..

          6. When were the sun and moon discovered in Quran it was written? before millions of years, it was mentioned in the Quran and you study in university use soap learn chemistry and youtube you watch is invented by Muslims
            if you don’t believe check in google stupid Quran has everything written in it read it and become a muslim

          7. If I want to get a good grade and best opportunity, I have to select the suitable course and work hard to partake the exam.
            If I am not ready to join a course, or not interested to study, or not appearing for the exam… then how is it possible for me to graduate and join the profession based on my qualification.?
            Can I blame the teacher, principal, institute or the university for not providing me the certificate and credentials?

          1. Ahmed says that there should be some being behind the creation of complex human body.
            I am a Muslim but I get very uncomfortable when someone asks who created that “being?” In other words how did God come into existence.
            Moreover Darwin’s theory of evolution explains quite a bit. If I am mistaken, I stand to be corrected. Thanks

          2. Lol, these people still don’t think evolution is real, have you not read any scientific literature at all? There is more than just one book you know.

        2. You are a brain dead prick. Stop being a fanatic. Keep your 2 cents worth to yourself. Keep your Islamic nonsense to yourself. China also have found the vaccine which give 99.9% results last month.

          1. Post a link to confirm your claim that China found a superior vaccine. It doesn’t mean no one can do it. Allah blesses whomever he wills with knowledge.

          2. calm ur tits adam just sit and watch the amazing muslims find cures for diseases which others couldnt do

          3. before you want to say a word, give some respect to others faith. Stop just mocking and bad talking Islam and Muslims. You should have learned that in primary school though. respect others religion or do you want to fulfill my “stupid person” criteria?

      2. Whilst we all appreciate their good work and hope it will give hope to many but you are very uneducated about who Allah is.
        He has continually honoured us with his favours and created us and gave us all the knowledge of respecting Almighty Allah and to do sujood in appreciation of his honour.
        Read Surah Rahman and understand the meaning.
        I agree with Javid and you should ask for forgiveness as you have spoken something deliberately as a non Muslim or a Muslim who doesn’t know Allah or Islam.
        You need to do sujood and ask for forgiveness if you are a good Muslim or will receive your reward for your wrong words.

        1. I do not think he’s being sincere with the questions. He may be the type that won’t believe even if the truth is made clear like daylight to him.

      3. When someone acts in good faith and in the service of the community, it surely pleases Allah. When someone acts in defiance or is involved in evil deeds, Allah the Almighty is surely displeased. However it is important to note that the creation cannot bestow any honour to the Creator. I apologize for the terse response by Javid

    1. Masa Allah, Subhanallah, Alhamdullillah,
      Very proud of you both and all the muslim world. Doa’s and pray for the succesfull and benefit of the vaccine in years ahead.

      Assalamu’alaikum.

    2. Allah does! But humans have to work hard and open their minds as the Quran says and not bind themselves into do not and don’t let other do anything!

    3. Allah does! But humans have to work hard and open their minds as the Quran says and not bind themselves into do not and don’t let other do anything!

    4. The couples religious faith had no role in their achievement . It was their intellect, hard work and the opportunities of education in the country – Germany – they group in. Give the credit where it is due and not Islam’s Allah.

      1. it doesn’t necessarily depends on education. Prayers and blessing from the god are also important. Then why do you Worship your god? the same goes for us

      2. Correct. They need a High Salute in their own right. It’s quite noticeable the Professor’s wife dresses as a westerner.

    5. Of course Allah has made this possible. But what is being overlooked entirely is the systems and institutions in Germany that have enabled this couple to come out with their best. Let us give Germany a large credit.

      1. Syukran jazilan. Allah SWT has paved the way for the esteemed couple to develop the vaccine. Every trigger of insight comes from Allah SWT.

    1. ‎اَلْحَمْدُلِلّهِ
      “Alhamdulillah”
      “All The Praise & Thanks To Be AlLāh ﷻ)

      May AlLāh ﷻ bless this couple❗️

      ‎ آمِّيْنَ آمِّيْنَ آمِّيْنَ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ

  1. It is trully a noble course the couple works toward saving million of lives. I strongly believe they will be rewarded by the Allah Almighty.

  2. Muslims the world over can do wonders if they are allowed to profess their faith without restricitons and not mocked for their attire and other symbolic descriptions.

        1. how do youu know exactly of she is not Muslim has or been stated no because thee answer is already given “Muslim couple” in the heading If the article so pls read before jumping to conclusions

      1. Most probably true.

        She wanted to be a nun!

        Early in his career, he met Dr. Türeci. She had early hopes to become a nun and ultimately wound up studying medicine. Dr. Türeci, now 53 and the chief medical officer of BioNTech, was born in Germany, the daughter of a Turkish physician who immigrated from Istanbul. On the day they were married, Dr. Sahin and Dr. Türeci returned to the lab after the ceremony.

    1. MashAllah, this Muslim couple in the field of medical research made a landmark discovery of developing the first and highly effective corona virus vaccine. They deserve the noble prize with flying colors. However, I don’t see or hear their name mentioned in USA news and TV media. Is this a bias against Muslim high achievers? The American and western media cry foul when some Muslim with poor judgement is involved in a violent act but when Muslim scientists invent something of great significance for humanity, there is a tepid response. Any feedback on that topic, thanks

  3. Masha Allah ! May Allah SWT bless them with even greater success and cure for disease like cancer to ease sufferings and pain of millions !

  4. Masha Allah… a proud day indeed for all Muslims around the world especially for Muslim Health Professionals… May Allah take us from strength to strength… All the best from South Africa

  5. Jazakallahu khairan my dear brother and sister. Really proud of you. Allah chosen you to solve the globally problem. Insyaallah everyone will benefit from your efforts.

  6. This is a wake up call for Muslim leadership around the world. Islam and ordinary Muslims who practice their faith are not a global threat. The threat lies in Muslim leadership which has become self-indulgent, hypocritical, corrupt and in pursuit of the excesses of life. Learn from this humble Muslim scientists and show the world that Islam is not a danger. Politicians and the evil game of power geopolitics are the real dangers.

  7. Alhamdullilah. All the blessings to this couple. You are gift to msnkind. You deserve Nobel prize for medical science

  8. Assalamualaokum.
    Subhanallah. Alhamdulillah. Allahuakhbar.

    Thanks to effort and time both of you had put into. It’s a gift from Allah to those sincerely persevere in such work of mankind’s betterment.

    Congratulations.

    Take care.
    Stay safe.
    Jazakallahukjairan- 0916-11112020 Andalas.

  9. Alhamdulillah…congratulations n proud of both of them. Indeed I am very proud to be muslims…miĺions will be saved by this vaccine, inshaAllah

  10. Mashallah may Allah grant you the best of both worlds surely Quran is not wrong.
    Save 1 life you save the whole umrah.

    1. MashAllah. May Allah shower this physician couple and Bill & Melinda Gates with endless blessings. We pray to Almighty God so that they find cure for cancer as well.

  11. Alhambulillah Allah dah ketemukn dgn vaksin.Sungguh Allah maha Pngasih dan maha Penyayang.
    الله اكبر الله اكبر الله اكبر

  12. Barakallahu U both. Congratulations n jazakallah khairon. I notice only Muslims r commenting. Da non- Muslims have nothin’ to say ??

  13. ProphetMohammat plug said whoever follow his path to seek knowledge therein Allah will assist his way thru and a path to heaven. Education is the responsibility of all Muslims male or female. Don’t judge the extremists Muslim where they already swayed away.

  14. it’s their glory, not something for other muslims to claim. They thrive in German, a non-Islamic country. Imagine if they stay in Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia or Brunei? and the lady doesnt even wear Hijab!

    1. So has Russia. The Professor has done fantastic work. I also am sure if he was not in a free western country, in a medieval Islamic one, he’d never have even opened his company , let alone achieved this. His being ‘a muslim’ is irrelevant compared to him being German now. I wouldn’t be surprised if he were like many successful people, and just ‘culturally religious’. Almost all top scientists are atheists.

  15. The chosen couple is following their faith to help generously Allah’s created mankind. May their work benefit app the world with 100% treatment of Corona virus. Inshallah. Aameen.

  16. Alhamdulillah. Allah has answered my hope that some Muslims find the vaccine for Covid 19. May Allah reward both of you in multiples for your efforts to benefit mankind. Barakallah.

  17. Lets us c.it is a buisness or humantarian deed.Later deserves the highest order award and former vice versa.Scientist has to invent, their job.Lucky they are.They should be thankful to Allah Who favovered them to pjt the crown.

  18. Ya Allah Please Bless this 2 Insan with all the best for today and all the days to come for their good work that will benefit Islam and the needy population of the world who wants to stay alive.

  19. I am absolutely thrilled by this. German funding and Muslim intellect. And Trump nowhere in sight. God be praised. — Yann van Heurck, USA

    1. well said Bro!

      Just like Muhammed Asad (Leopold Weiss) the Zeitung/Bild journalist who wrote the famous ”The Road to Mecca”

  20. I thought they might have born in Turkey and raised in Saudi Arabia! And they moved back to Turkey and worked on the vaccine in Turkey.

  21. Assalamu Alaikum , dear brothers and sisters in Islam. syedna Ali and Abbas RTA say ” Ma nazala balaun illa bezanb O ma rufiyah illa be tauba” those of you who are celebrating the Muslim names propped up with the discovery of the fake COVID vaccine have forgotten the Zionist global reset plan behind the fake corona pandemic. They are softening the ground for muslims to agree to get the surrveillance nano chip planted in their bodies through this fake vaccine. Stop celebrating and start organizing yourself to reject the inchipment. May Allah protect the Muslims from the fitna of NWO. Ameen!

  22. Dr Ugur Sahin reminds us of the plight of the 2 million Chinese ”UIGHYUR’ Muslim’ brethren who are being persecuted and medically experimented and organs for transplant harvest in live human beings!
    Almighty Allah wants us to the remember why He sent down the Covid Calamity in the first place, bcos we were SILENT despite our brethren facing holocaust and genocide!

    Allahu Akbar!

    May Allah give us good sense/ hidayah to come out of our selfish comforts and ghaflah.

    May He bless the efforts of this believing Turkish-German Muslim couple, even though they are not very strictly outwardly ”practising”; they are humble despite their riches; and put efforts to help all of Humanity; just as the Prophet Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wassallam is a Mercy to all Mankind ”Rahmat-ul-lil-Aalameen”.

    ”Allah does not look at your outward dresses or show-up; He looks at your hearts (sincerity and hard-work) !” (Holy Quraan)

    1. Plz note that dr ugur Sahin is NOT a Muslim. He is an Alawite & currently identifies as agnostic. His wife is a practicing Christians. Please don’t take everyone in Turkey or with Turkish name is a Muslim! Thanks

  23. Absolutely appauled by the cheering comments, this vaccine is capable of change human DNA and RNA . Just a bunch of fools , the damage to humans is extensive which can cause serious illiness, sterilisation auto immunity and the list goes on

  24. The above post has lots of mistakes. Please correct it. It would be better if it’s thoroughly reviewed before being published.

  25. Alhamdulillah.Another proof if Ibnu Sina greatest unfluenced in medical history . May Allah grant more Muslim to be successful in medical field.aamiin

  26. Well done German couple with Turkish roots or Alamo roots. Whether they currently espouse Islam or not is not important. The important thing is that the world of Islam is proud.

  27. Asalmalikm, not for muslims but for all humanity. This is massage of holy prophet ,MUHAMMAD,saw,pbuh.Who is Rehmat ul lilalmeen .you proved it because you done it. we Pakistani’s are proud of our Turkish Muslim brothers. May Allah bless you. Ameen.

  28. Asalmalikm, not for muslims but for all humanity. This is massage of holy prophet ,MUHAMMAD,saw,pbuh.Who is Rehmat ul lilalmeen .you proved it because you done it. we Pakistani’s are proud of our Turkish Muslim brothers. May Allah bless you. Ameen.

  29. They are Turkish dissidents Living in Germany. How do we know their faith. Islam is beautiful if you understand it correctly. But these people are not religious. They are working towards the betterment of society.
    How is it that their identity has become muslim all of a sudden.

  30. I don’t understand why so many have to sectarianise so quickly. They, the two caring doctors, are both – first and foremost – humans, who by their own admission, dedicate their work to the good of humanity. They accord no religious caveats to their endeavours and I think they would both be repulsed by others trying to label their work with uninvited sectarian predilections.

    If they are Muslims,,, then they have been blessed; if they are not Muslims they have been blessed nonetheless. But what goes without saying is regardless of their religion the world is lucky to have them on humanities side, fighting humanities most insidious and worst battles with no gender, race, colour or creed bias polluting their vision and desires.

    I am Catholic, not the best educated man in the world, but I am of the belief that Muslims and Christians worship the same God only they do so in their own way.

    I prefer to find common ground as opposed look for reasons to divide and hate. One love.

    Regardless of which persuasion the two good doctors (Uğur Şahin and Özlem Türeci) embrace, I pray my God, our God, that their work brings an end to the worlds sufferings and sorrows.

    Inshallah.

  31. What on earth has being Muslim to do with their upbringing. They did not go to Islamic classes..in fact one of the parents a surgeon in a catholic hospital..and nuns were admired.
    If up to Islam these 2 would be slaughtered for trying to do Gods work..thats the truth.
    Islam is a hindrance not a benefit to people. So many good people Christian or other religious views killed in the name of Allah…a useless waste of life for an imaginary person.
    I wish this couple of German trained hard working individuals the best and may they keep improving themselves and others.

  32. Great achievement, High Salute.. Before you all celebrate too much, look at how they are dressed, especially the Professor’s wife. They are almost certainly, like most great scientists, atheists. Believing in ‘a creator’ believing in myths, is incompatible with high intelligence.

  33. We Thankful to Allah and we are proud this beautiful couple ALLAH send us for help to take the whole world out from corona hostage congratulations to every single human

  34. Have been reading all the comments.
    Allah has given them strong ability to do this good work.
    My husband n myself were recently discharged from the hospital fully cured of Corona Virus by the Grace of Allah Almighty.
    Allah has given them the strength n mind to develop medicine n injection for the Virus.
    We pray to Almighty to give the scientists the strength to continue the good work done by them.

  35. I don’t know… I’m a Muslim but when the name Pfizer came up and knowing who runs it and also this Turkish couple even if they’re Muslims, knowing their close ties with people such Pfizer and Bill Gates (funding the”vaccine”) I’ve doubts about the intention. To my dear brother and sisters of Islam, I understand for more than centuries we’ve not put any of our name in aspect that changes the world, but I’ll be very glad to sit this one out.. if so to say I’m wrong and that they’re doing this vaccine for the betterment of humanity, than Alhamdullilah but knowing how we’re told in the end times a lot of Dajjjal fintah of glad tidings will arise, even from our very own ; I can’t help to tell Muslims just be awry of this good news until we actually see real recovery rate.
