Allah Almighty has revealed a complete code of life in the form of Islam for the guidance of humanity. The religion of Islam gives different rules and principles for living a better life in individual and collective contexts and normal situations as well as in emergencies. In Islam, the family is an important institution that is the foundation and root of society. Society is built on this foundation and principle. The family system of Islam is a wonderful system with many characteristics which are unique and more inclusive than the family systems of other religions. In contemporary times, the Corona epidemic (Code 19) has not only affected various systems, departments, and institutions in the world, rather it has also affected the Islamic family system in multiple ways, both positive and negative. Maintaining social distance became of considerable importance in preventing this epidemic, which led to a ban on all social, economic, recreational, political, and religious activities, forcing family members to spend most of their time at home. On one hand, it has appeared as an opportunity to have positive effects such as mutual love and affection, mutual consultation for problem-solving, and closeness in relationships. On the other hand, being confined to one's home or room has led to problems such as detachment from other family members, ignorance of their situation, and lack of communication. Adopting an analytical method of research, this article examines the effects of the Corona epidemic on the Islamic family system with the same positive and negative references.
