The Black Death ravaged much of the Islamic world.[92] Plague was present in at least one location in the Islamic world virtually every year between 1500 and 1850.[93] Plague repeatedly struck the cities of North Africa. Algiers lost 30,000–50,000 to it in 1620–21, and again in 1654–57, 1665, 1691, and 1740–42.[94] Plague remained a major event in Ottoman society until the second quarter of the 19th century. Between 1701 and 1750, 37 larger and smaller epidemics were recorded in Constantinople, and 31 between 1751 and 1800.[95] Baghdad has suffered severely from visitations of the plague, and sometimes two-thirds of its population has been wiped out.[96]

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.
