And I bear witness that Allah has one and has no partners. And that Mohammed the son of Abdullah is His servant, his last messenger. May Allah always constantly send peace and blessings to Mohammed, to his family, to his companions, and all those who call to his way and establish his sunnah to the day of judgment as to what follows.
I begin by reminding myself and you have the overwhelming importance of Taqwa Allah, the overwhelming importance of the consciousness of the fact that everything in this universe is ultimately controlled by Allah subhanaw taala, creator of the heavens in the earth.
And Allah has revealed to us or you who believe, fear Allah in the way that he should be feared and do not die, except in a state of Islam.
Oh, you who believe. Allah subhanaw taala has revealed the last revelation in a time framework that is beginning now with a revelation coming to the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, and continuing on until the day of resurrection.
And so the verses that are so much were so much important to the Prophet peace be upon him and his companions are also critical for us today, as we read them, and in this chaotic world that we are living in today
with apocalyptic changes happening
on a daily and weekly basis in certain Anbiya right in the beginning, Allah subhanaw taala has revealed to us Smilla rahmanir rahim. Katara Bala nasty Hisar boom, we're home free have flattened Monterrey Dune, Maya T him in decurrent Min Robbie him rotten, illness Tamar, who were whom y'all are born.
Allah has revealed closer and closer to humanity comes their reckoning, yet they do not care and they turn away. Whenever a renewed message comes to them from their Lord. They listen to it
and they play.
It goes to the ears.
But they continue to play.
Now we are witnessing a clear renewed message.
It is totally agreed upon by the scientists. That climatic disaster is a reality that we will have to live with.
Renewed signs are coming.
Recently it is found that the glaciers in Greenland some of the largest glaciers on Earth are restricting because of the heating of the earth. And it is causing strange ice formations to pour into the oceans
and the heat that we have created as human beings in the north. This heat is causing glaciers around the world to melt at an unprecedented rate.
It is causing strange phenomenon, even in Europe, which thought that it was safe from the punishment of Allah. They are witnessing
the hottest temperatures in 500 years.
Their major rivers are drying up. Their livestock is dying.
And this terrible heat
is causing rivers to dry up in China.
Many parts of the world and the opposite. It is also causing
not just drying on the ground, but a whole atmosphere of heat and dryness. East Africa is facing a terrible drought, over 20 million people are in danger right now.
And this is not to forget about famine that is sweeping Yemen and sweeping Afghanistan.
And now, in Pakistan,
the monsoon rains that have been increased with the heat.
The glaciers above Pakistan, more than any other country in the world are melting at a tremendous rate. And now 33 million people in Pakistan are affected 33 million people that is almost the size of the population of Canada
is under impact. 3 million cheap children are in danger. There is an ongoing danger not only of the drowning, but malnutrition, disease, the World Health Organization has considered what is happening in Pakistan to be of the highest level emergency.
There is a 60 mile wide inland lake now developing around the Indus River. And so what is pouring water into the country over 1/3 of the country is underwater.
Is this not a sign? What more two people on Earth with the wealth that we have? What more do we need? But what is the response? As Allah said, they listen, we're home yell our boon.
They listen to it and they play whether it is their war games, or whether it is their national games, or whether it is their international games in this year alone. There was the Winter Olympics, while drought is happening.
The Commonwealth Games while floods are happening the World Rugby cup.
And in November, the FIFA World Soccer held in Qatar. And the cost in order to put on this game, in order to play is over 220 billion US dollars for game.
Allah gave them the message. And as he told us in this chapter,
Antonio Guterres, Secretary General, the United Nations has said recently, the world is sleepwalking towards the destruction of the planet. by climate change, sleep walking.
How do we respond?
How do Muslims respond to have the last message? We have the last message in our hand? What should we do with these catastrophes hitting us in the left? hitters hitting us in the right up and down? Allah told us inserta talaaq woman yet tequila Hajjaj Allahu Maharaja where your resume and highschooler yet acid woman yet to work out Allah He for Hua Espo in Allah
He knows not and whoever depends upon Allah, Allah will be sufficient for that person. Surely Allah will reach his purpose. And he has made a limit to all things in Allah ballyhoo Omri Ajah, Allah Allah holy coalition kartra.
And so with taqwa and towaco
with the consciousness of the Creator and to Wako which means you depend upon Allah, but you tie your camel.
You deal with the reality on the earth that we are living in, we can bounce back. We have bounced back as a nation in many catastrophes throughout the centuries. And this calamity, these calamities as our great alumni have shown us, Allah has revealed the Prophet SAW Salem has shown in calamity, there can be good.
A calamity can be a means to an end.
It is a catalyst. It's pushing you towards something. It's a crisis. It's a calamity.
and shackled Islam, Ibn Taymiyyah was reported to have said, a calamity that makes you turn to Allah is better for you than a blessing that makes you turn away
it changes the order of societies. And this is what we are seeing right now. The order of this planet is changing
right in front of our eyes not 50 years from now. Not at the turn of the century. Right now.
calamities are also a sign of Allah's love.
The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said whenever Allah loves a person, he tests him.
He also said If Allah wants to do good to somebody, he afflicts him with trials.
Even though km Rahim Allah said calamities and trials are tests
and signs of the love from Allah for the believers, they are comparable to a cure. Although it may be better, you accept it, because it is from the one you love. And to Allah belongs the best examples.
Calamity calamities also our expiation of Sin Cara Farah, in a calamity there is explorations of since consider the diamond
considered the most valuable object, consider a diamond, it reaches its climax, after tremendous pressure is put upon it.
After all the impurities are taken out of the diamond. Then you have the beauty
or Isha Rhodiola one revealed that the Prophet SAW Salem has informed us No calamity befalls a Muslim, but that Allah wipes away some of his sins because of it, even though it was the small pain he receives from a THON.
When the pain comes, Allah wipes away the sins of a believer. calamities also elevate our status in the akhira in the hereafter a calamity in the dunya will raise you in status in the next life. Side Up and up what cost radula one, he asked the Messenger of Allah, which people were the most sorely tested, he said the prophets and then the next best, and then the next best. One is afflicted in accordance with his faith. If his faith is firm, his affliction is harsh.
If his faith is weak, his affliction is light.
calamities also teach us sober
patience during the calamity and the has to be sober after the calamity.
And check even okay and Rahimullah also said panicking does not make the calamity go away. In fact, panicking makes the calamity more difficult.
What is the outcome for us now? It's all around us. We need to show gratitude. shukor gratitude and thanks to Allah subhanaw taala under all circumstances.
And this may be strange for us in a country as this where we feel there is relative peace and relative calm. But that is only momentarily.
Calamity is around every person on the face of the planet Earth and the Prophet SAW Selim said on the Day of Resurrection, people will wish that their skins had been cut with scissors in this world when they see the reward of those who was struck with calamity
in the next life, when they see the reward of those who are suffering under calamity.
We are under tremendous test right now.
And so every person, every one of us has to look into himself or herself. We must be giving something to ease the burden of our brothers and sisters in this calamity. There is no other alternative. We have to do something. And of course, Doha is a major thing we can do. But we need to give our wealth, give of our time, give our lips anything we can do, because these calamities will not end
these calamities will reach a crisis point.
And then the ease will come.
And as we are going to that critical crisis point, we are under that test
that Allah subhanaw.
That if you have good times you give from the blessings.
would enable leadership in the Muslim world, to divert their wealth, to divert the blessings that they have gotten from play to saving lives?
That is what the wealth has been given to them for
for the raising the banner of Allah subhanaw taala and to save the lives of the innocent people. May Allah subhanaw taala have mercy on the suffering of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanaw taala ease the burden of our brothers and sisters in Pakistan, in Afghanistan, in Kashmir, in East Africa, in Philistine in Syria. In all parts of the world may Allah ease the burden from this ummah, may Allah ease the burden from humanity from those innocent people in humanity, who are suffering from the greed
of the tiny minority, May Allah bring down that minority, and raise up true leadership in this world to take us from darkness into light. Akula Kali Heather was thoughtfully welcome when he saw Ely Muslimeen and COVID I'm Ben iStockphoto Inaho ova photo Rahim.
