To lucky or Barakatuhu hopefully everyone is doing well. This afternoon Nasir Jenga from Calum and hamdulillah. In the current situation that we are dealing with. Our seminary classes have moved completely online. We're doing the seminary classes remotely. The first period of the day that I actually teach at Pelham is I Buhari. So we go through the ahaadeeth the narrations of prophetic tradition, preserved within the book known as the Sahih. compiled by Imam Bukhari, Allahu taala. And there was a hadith that we read this morning that I wanted to share with everyone and I thought that it would be a source of comfort and a source of strength for everyone in sha Allah, have a very,
very beneficial lesson that we can take from this. In a hadith narrated by Al Bara even Isaac by the Allahu taala. I'm who, who is a young Muslim from the people of Medina, and I'm sorry, he says Qatar Rajan el Kapha. With his daddy that button. He says that one man, one individual, one night was praying and he was reciting silicon gaff. So a man was reciting sort of gaff. And in the area of his home, like the courtyard area, there was a horse that was tied up there for john at 10 feet. And the horse started to buck. The horse started to you know, jump around, it started to get excited, and almost started to freak out a little bit for either bug Baba to an OSA hub for cell number. And then
that man, he concluded his prayer, he finished reciting and concluded his prayer, figured out baba baba turn OSA high button, because she had to. And then when he looked up, he saw that there was like this huge, dense, thick, cloud looking thing that was hanging over his place of residence, his house in the courtyard, that area
for NACA hulin Avi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam. So he went to the prophets a lot. So many mentioned all of this, said, this is what happened with me.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something very beautiful tame and response for Allah ikura phoolan. He said, keep on reading, keep on reading, read more on, read more on.
He said, for in the heart of Sakina because this was tranquility from your Lord. This was peace, tranquility, calmness, serenity, that was descending from your Lord Meza let live.
And it came down because you were reciting, and reading the Quran, the speech of God, the Book of Allah, because of that this piece in this tranquillity was coming down upon you. So as we find ourselves in difficult times, trying times testing times, and God knows that
going online, or checking your phone definitely does not help. The situation does not help your predicament at all. Because every time you check your phone, one of the 800 WhatsApp groups that you're in, has some kind of Doomsday message has some kind of horrible prediction of how everyone is going to die. And some of them are very serious, and they're scientifically valid studies out there. I'm not denying any of that. But what I am saying is that it wears on your soul it wears on your mind, on your heart on your soul. Just last night, I was at the end of this year class, I was answering some questions. And someone said, okay, we dealt with the Jamaat situation, what are we
going to do about Ramadan, I said, you know what we'll talk about Ramadan, when we get a lot done. I my heart just can't handle it right now. Let's just deal with one day at a time, one week at a time. I'm not saying we won't be prepared, we'll prepare ourselves. We'll figure it out when the time comes. But let's please cross that bridge when we get there. So it's so overwhelming. Already. There's so much difficulty and instability with work and family and kids and school and all of that. And then you compounded by every time you turn on the TV every time you check your phone every time you open your email, you log on to Facebook, it's you're just getting hit. And after a while you've
lost that serenity, that calmness. I've spoken to people in last few days, who said they've lost the ability to sleep. They don't see they don't eat
You know, they're they're, they're withering away without even getting infected by the virus. So how long
and so when I read this hadith
I was reminded of something very essential that we all desperately need for in the HA Sakina to nazara T.
It came down because you were reading the Koran. So he said o'clock epsilon, go and read, read more. This was tranquility mesonet look around the kingdom because you engage with the book of Allah subhanaw taala. So, my very humble
my humble offering to y'all and my reminder.
My reprimand to myself is that let's spend a little bit of time reading and reciting the Quran. spend a little time with the Koran. I'm pretty sure y'all do. Y'all are better, much, much better than I am. But we could all use a little bit more time with the army especially when you feel like your tranquility and your serenity and your calmness is gone. your nerves are fried. Just go and sit down with the Koran for a little while. And Allah subhanaw taala will send a subpoena up on this. I mean that will belong to me. Does that mean located on just wanted to share a couple of thoughts? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for everyone to set up Marley Kumar to lucky
