[Autom. eng. transl.] The health emergency due to Covid-19 has also had a strong impact on believers and religious communities of all religions. In addition to having upset religious practices, it has brought to attention the issues of suffering and death, often removed from technical-scientific progress and the privatization of the common experiences of getting sick and dying. These unavoidable stages of existence, the relative anthropological, social, juridical factors and the theological-ritual implications, could make us more aware and responsible in the face of emergencies, sharing with colleagues, friends and neighbors, of any belief and religion, the simple but eternal mystery of suffering and dying. This volume, through a collection of essays and testimonies, aims to present how such experiences are lived in Muslim faith communities. It is intended for social and health personnel, chaplains, volunteers, but also for political and administrative authorities, for those dealing with immigration in general, and in any case for all those people of 'good will' who, finding themselves in contact with of Muslim faithful, in the work of relief they can find unprecedented opportunities for encounter and dialogue and give birth to networks of solidarity.
