Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah le he or V as you may all praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. And may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as to what follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

00:00:25--> 00:01:13

And as we come to the end of the si 2020, I wanted to share with you a reminder and a reflection over this entire UI and what has happened of this pandemic. And what does the believer learn from all of this? So first and foremost, to begin, I begin with a large Zoysia as words in Sula tillbaka, in where Allah subhanho wa Taala said, What Ana bluer Nakhon bishi immunol whole fuel jewelry why not some mineral oil, emphysema thermal rot or a sheet of slavery in this area, Allah subhanho wa Taala he promised, he said what a blue or nutcombe verily and definitely no doubt about it, we will test you and in more than one place in Nepal and Allah subhanahu wa taala mentions this one a blue

00:01:13--> 00:02:04

combi shirt they will highly fitna in many places in the air, and in the teachings of colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala promises that he will test us beside him with something minimal hope of fee anxiety while you're a Jew or poverty, hunger, why not submit an unwed? Well, emphysema thermolon, he will test us with a loss of wealth and a loss of life. Loss of wealth could mean losing your job losing your farms and the crops that grow on the farms and so on. last session, promised this and illimitable hammer home a lot they discussed a question, why does a loss origin tell us in Nepal and that he will test us why in order for us to be prepared in order

00:02:04--> 00:02:22

for us to be prepared. So when the believer is tested, he is not as shocked as someone who never read a lot. So part of our diet is word. We are always prepared for loss, origins, calamities, in the tests that he sends upon us and sins upon mankind. And you know, I give you this example.

00:02:24--> 00:03:05

Let's say I told the group of students I was teaching students and I told a group of students that at the end of the day, I am going to give you a test based on everything we studied throughout the day. Now what does that mean? That means the students will be prepared at the end of the day because I informed them that there will be a test. So they prepared. Now this is different to let's say, for example, I taught the students the entire UI, and I came at the end of the UI. And I surprise them with an exam and I said to them, he's an exam and you have to fill in this exam, then you would be shocked and surprised and perhaps most won't perform as good as they would have I told them there is

00:03:05--> 00:03:53

exam. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, when Allah azza wa jal, he says to us well, and a blue or nachum, we will surely test you. That means that the believer is already prepared because Allah has already informed him ahead of time, that Be careful. And be aware and stay focused and keep your mind and your eyes open tests are going to come on this road. And no doubt 2020 has been an extremely toughy for everyone, no doubt on all levels, social, physical, emotional, economical, spiritual massage, it closed down. Yanni, it's been an empire, he of struggle, and extreme difficulty for each and every single person. Millions became infected and continued to become

00:03:53--> 00:04:16

infected from this disease, from presidents to celebrities, to scholars, to Muslims to non Muslims, so many people, everyone has been affected. People saw death, and a lot of social brought them back to life. In other words, they were about to die from this virus but Allah azza wa jal allow them to live Subhan Allah,

00:04:18--> 00:04:33

young and old died, people lost their jobs. People dealt with severe depression and anxiety, which caused and lead to suicide. People lived in extreme fi and until now people are living in extreme Fie.

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

Some people are trapped in foreign countries and until now they haven't been able to get back to their homes. So part a lot that as I said to you to the Muslim, this doesn't come as a huge surprise because Allah has already informed us in the Quran, that surely he will test us. So now we are seeing a lot of social test towards us. Now my brothers and sisters in Islam, what I wanted to first discuss

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

with you is is this pandemic? Is this virus a punishment from a law? Or is it a test from a law? Or is it a mercy of a law? What is it? There's a lot of discussion that happens in this, and it's been a email. And still I hear from people and I see posts and I read things that are contrary to what Lars has taught us. And what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given us of guidance concerning this matter. So let's discuss this. First and foremost will refer to a hadith that is narrated by I shall be a law one head, in which she says, Son to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on your own. I shall be a lover I'm one time she asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:05:49--> 00:06:46

sallam about our own. Let's understand what a burden is. Upon my brothers and sisters in Islam, is a specific disease that's caused by a certain type of bacteria. In English upon is known as a plague. A plague is a specific disease. This is what operon is. And there's another word as well, that describes our state today. And that is known as WebEx. WebEx, in English is translated as pandemic. And what is a pandemic? What is our bet Anyway, when you hear this word pandemic, what does it mean? pandemic means any kind of disease, it could be any disease that is widespread over an entire country or around the whole world. So what we're experiencing of this Coronavirus is a pandemic,

00:06:46--> 00:07:40

it's a disease that is widespread across the entire globe. Now the difference between webapp and Barun because remember, in this hobby, shall be a long one here is asking and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about a Barun which is a specific disease that is caused by a certain type of bacteria. And that is known as the plague. So, the idea is that in order to hammer home Allah they said, that alphabet, which is a pandemic, it takes the ruling of the power of the plague, if it was to cause death, and it becomes a high number of death. So we can use this hadith to speak about whether this Coronavirus is a punishment or a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala because what we're experiencing

00:07:40--> 00:08:35

as we said this Coronavirus is known in Arabic as well, that was a bad pandemic. And this war that takes the ruling of Barun, which is a plague, if this were bad, causes a lot of death. So in this Hadith, I shall be a love on her. She asked in the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam about the plague about a pandemic. So in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he informed her by saying that it is a punishment from a law that he sends upon whoever he wields. And Allah azza wa jal made the pandemic made the plague, a mercy upon the believers, and that there is not a single person who lives in a land in which this plague arrives. And then he sits in his country saw built on whiteness, even in

00:08:35--> 00:08:51

another generation fee Beatty, he sits in his house, he doesn't move around, he sits in his house only goes out for essentials and necessities and needs. And he sits in his house observing patients seeking alarms, origins reward writers even

00:08:52--> 00:09:02

yamana Julio Cebu, illa macatawa la law, who knows and he knows and he's convinced that nothing would happen to him except that which Allah has written for him.

00:09:04--> 00:09:41

And he didn't follow him because allows cut up upon us is for us, it's not against us. It's for us were the ones that are rewarded for it. If we know how to preserve impatience and seek a loss reward elac and Allahu Mifflin and Judi Shaheed or mythical judiciary, except that that such person that does that sits in his home in his homeland. He's observing patients seeking a large reward because there's a pandemic outside a deadly virus that is causing death to people and causing them to fall ill and sick and other side effects.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

His reward would be that of a Shaheed of a Mata Allahu Akbar, for ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us such a reward, and to allow us to observe impatience and seek his reward when we sit at home, waiting and awaiting this pen.

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

demmick to be removed my brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's also understand now answering this question whether this Coronavirus is it a punishment? Who is it a punishment against? We said it's a mercy upon the believers. And what does that mean that it's a mercy upon the believers? Let me tell you and inform you of this.

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

We know that

00:10:25--> 00:11:20

calamities that a lot of social sins upon his creation are for three reasons. There are three reasons for why Alonzo tests His servants. Number one, is to raise a person's level in the paradise. And this is for prophets. And the righteous people have a lot of sleeves that have been cleaned from their sins. So if you're clean from your sins, if you have no sins to your name, they've all been wiped away. If a large Zoysia was distilled, test you those tests now translate in a rise of levels in the paradise and rank in the paradise for such a person. And this is the case of the prophets. And it's true a person can walk on earth with no sins, that his sins have all been cleaned and wiped

00:11:20--> 00:11:56

away. It's definitely true. And Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith Femina is lol Bella Bella, damn she Allah, one Allah human habia de la sojourn will continuously test a servant continuously test him until he walks on earth, and he is free of sin law, but there is no sin upon him whatsoever like well, so that's the first wisdom and reason for why Allah sends down calamities, so that he can raise certain people levels and ranks in the paradise.

00:11:57--> 00:12:13

The second reason for delay the second reason for calamity no matter what kind of calamity it is, we're speaking about this COVID and what it has resulted of loss of job loss of wealth fi in the people and whatever it has done loss of lives of loved ones, and so on.

00:12:14--> 00:13:08

The second reason for why a lot tests us with this COVID Coronavirus, as an expiation for sins to wipe away seems that's a reason for why a lot of soil tests us. That's the second reason and this is supported by the hadith of Abu Seidel habri robiola one and Abu hurayrah Allahu anhu. In where they said what Hadith is authentic male see would be salam wa alayhi wa sallam said may we'll see we'll move min min was out in Walla Walla soo min, Allah Subhan Allah has been hacked alemayehu mo laka for a law he is a Yeti. And the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said that there is no wassup that affects a believer. What is a What's up? What's up is a chronic illness, such as cancer, diabetes,

00:13:09--> 00:13:34

chronic mental illnesses. Chronic means a disease or a sickness that lasts for a long time it's permanent. That's what the Hadid says that, if a law of his origin was to afflict a person with warsop, a chronic permanent illness or mosop, tiredness, fatigue, exhaustion.

00:13:35--> 00:13:54

I'll succumb succumb is a temporary sickness, you get a flu and then you recover from it. Was it was it a sadness if a law was to afflict upon a person sadness has in here specifically means sadness over something you lost? sadness for something that happened in the past you lost something

00:13:56--> 00:13:56

happened

00:13:58--> 00:14:45

even if a law was statistic a person with him depression and worry, depression or mourning means because of a calamity that has befallen you prison, you're dealing with the present time, except that a lot of solution wiped wipes away he seemed a lot like well, any of these calamities that a person is tested with it works towards expiation of sins allows or he'll clean a person from his sins. And this category is like you and I believers with sins. Whatever loves origin tests us with if we remain patient and seek amar sociants reward we remain patient by saying in Delhi or in LA or as your own and we do not say things which are displeasing to Allah and we do not do things that are

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

displeasing to Allah. Then these calamities such as Coronavirus, and anything else. They work towards cleansing our sins the many sins we have, we need a way we need a solution to clean them last social by His mercy would send

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

These calamities, so that he cleans us up in this life, so that we avoid punishment in the grave punishment in the hereafter and punishment in the Hellfire now, and the final reason for why Allah azza wa jal tests His servants is as a form of punishment.

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

And who is it a punishment upon? calamities are a punishment upon the disbelievers

00:15:27--> 00:15:44

Allah bear, or this Coronavirus or whatever it is of calamities. They are punishments upon the disbelievers from one perspective, and they are also a mercy upon disbelievers from another perspective, I'll explain to you what I mean. Number one,

00:15:45--> 00:16:35

we say that these calamities upon disbelievers are a punishment from a last origin because this is what Allah azza wa jal mentioned in the end, this is what a lot mentioned in the book. For example, the subtle art of when Allah subhanahu wa tada spoke about the calamities that he sent upon the nation of Pharaoh Pharaoh is a disbelieving nation. A lot of Zoysia Lee said for artisanally human bufan he sent upon them the flood will also Nanaimo. bufan Girod the Lotus will come and Rob buffer there what dumb the frogs the plague blood the entire Nile River turned into blood, they couldn't drink it anymore at mufa salette. Law social testing tested these people with a with a plague which

00:16:35--> 00:17:26

was the the locusts in Sula to zakharov when Allah subhanahu wa taala described what he tested when he saw what he tested the people of fit our own with he said, Well, I have never home bill avec la la homeodomain a lot of social describe the calamity sent upon a disbelieving nation as other he sent it as other a lot of social in sort of the search that you said one of the econo minella there been adamant that we are going to get any loony the economy going to make them taste the punishment of this life before the greed or punishment of the hereafter. So calamities that are lost sense upon the disbelievers are punishments from a loss origin upon them. And why do we say this? Because I

00:17:26--> 00:17:45

already told you that calamities upon people are for three reasons. Number one, that a lot raises ranks for that person in the paradise that a lot wipes, wipes away sins, and a lot tests a person as a form of punishment. Now for the disbeliever

00:17:46--> 00:18:32

he cannot be in the first category, because you cannot be raised ranks in the paradise unless you're a believer. He cannot be from the second category in where the test is wiping away his sins. Because in order for your sins to be wiped away, you must embrace the heat. You must accept La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah so that can be happening for him when Allah Zoysia tests them, there remains one more and that is a punishment from Allah social upon them. And I said to you calamities upon disbelievers from another perspective, is a mercy of a law upon them. Why do I say that? Because in the same as that allows or shall describe calamities upon disbelievers as a punishment in

00:18:32--> 00:18:59

the same area, he said, What have never been below that law law homie over here. He tests them, even though it's a punishment for their disbelief in disobedience, in hope that they might realize the truth and turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Therefore, from that perspective, it's a mercy from a loss origin. And this happened. This happened to the people to the disbelieving nation of Uranus alayhis salam

00:19:00--> 00:19:16

when the disbelieving nation of Uranus alayhis salaam rejected the messenger rejected a last message did what did not want to accept a loss oneness and Uranus Allah he said I'm left them and took away a lot of social he says

00:19:18--> 00:19:59

for Lola Korea to unfollow they cannot Korea to a minute faneca email illa comunes Lemma Amano Kashif Nan Hamada belkis even higher to dunya Madonna in the people of Yunus they will disbelievers when you lose alayhis salaam left and Allah azza wa jal was about to send punishment upon them. He was about descent a massive calamity that would have wiped them all the way. Lhasa was then referred to his calamity as a verb. But then they realized they recognized they were in the wrong so they immediately turned to a law instanceid

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

Oba and repentance, and they asked a lot for forgiveness. And they regretted what they had done with their prophet Yunus allissa them and they regretted rejecting a loss message. So they embrace the oneness of Allah. They accepted a large version. And what happened a lot so is it said Kashif unknown available fizzy. We removed the punishment away from them a large social war that this punishment away laquan McDonald home, Elaine, and we gave them an enjoyment and a beautiful life for a short moment until they live their lives and they died. Allahu Akbar. So this is the ID, this pandemic and any calamity that Allah subhanho wa Taala sins upon a disbeliever. from one

00:20:49--> 00:21:32

perspective, it's a punishment, because it doesn't wipe away his sins he needs to accept a lot before that happens. It doesn't raise his level in the paradise he needs to accept that though he did a lot before that happens. So it remains as a punishment upon him. And from another perspective, it allows mercy upon him, that perhaps he might wake up because it's not too late. Because the people of Uranus the punishment was about to come upon them. They accepted a lot a lot removed and replaced them with pleasure and enjoyment until they lived their lives and they died afterwards. Love occurred. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, this is how we understand this Coronavirus. It

00:21:32--> 00:22:06

is a mercy upon the believers, it works towards raising the ranks of those who are sinless, have been wiped away from their sins. If you still have sins, it wipes away the sins and upon the disbeliever. It is a wake up call for him. And ultimately, of course, it's a wake up call for each and every single one of us. The next thing I wanted to discuss with you, my brothers and sisters in Islam is how does the believer respond to Universal changes? This change that has happened around the universe because of this tiny virus? How does a believer respond to this?

00:22:08--> 00:22:54

How does a believer respond to incidents and events that happen in the universe and all around us? You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would always teach his companions to tie incidents and events and universal changes to spiritual meanings so that the man could increase. That's what almost a seller would do with his companions. So every time they observed a universal change, or something of a huge incident or event that happened in their life, they would observe it with spiritual lens, not only with their physical eyes like most people today, they saw Coronavirus. They heard the news Coronavirus. callosity their mind is shallow, the intellect is shallow, and it just

00:22:54--> 00:23:17

closes at that. And then they begin to resort to conspiracy theories to find an explanation for what's going on. And believe it doesn't respond like this. The believer he looks at these events through spiritual lens. Now let me give you examples as to what I mean. Firstly, let's take for example, the full moon.

00:23:18--> 00:23:50

This is a universal change. It's an incident that used to happen every single month whenever the full moon used to be in the sky bright on the 15th night of every Islamic month. And Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he said these two companions helped to Barcelona euro yet will come up later. And he said to them, Do you people crowd up to see the moon on a full moons night? Or everyone can see it from his own space and own backyard.

00:23:51--> 00:24:37

So they said lay out rasulillah No, we don't have to crowd up to see the full moon. Now look at this interview some Allahu alayhi wa sallam acknowledged this wonderful, magnificent event of a full moon and he immediately tied to a spiritual meaning. He said to them familiar to ballroom a few yet illa hidayatullah yo malkia he said and in the same manner, you will be seeing a loss of powder what Allah on the day of judgment when you're in the paradise. In other words, just like you don't crowd up in this life to see the moon everyone can see it from his own backyard. That's how we will see a lot of Zoysia on the day of judgment in the paradise. We don't pick up in crowd up in one area and

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

all of us on top of each other to see a large Zoysia everyone in the private space of his in his own comfort and luxury and his own space would see Allah subhanho wa Taala just like today, I live in a country you live somewhere else. You see the moon I see the moon we didn't have to crowd up like what Look how beautiful this is. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took a phenomenal

00:25:00--> 00:25:17

A huge event such as the full moon, the brightness of the moon, and he tied it to a spiritual meaning. This is what we have to do. When we see Coronavirus, and we hear about this universal change, we need to tie it to a spiritual meaning. Let me give you another example.

00:25:19--> 00:26:04

Another universal change. And an incident that used to happen in the universe is the eclipse of the moon Eclipse that used to happen, and maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would rush out to his companions. Not only saying oh my god, today, there is a eclipse of the moon. What are we going to do? What are you going to do now? And maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam saw the universal change, saw a phenomenal event that is happening in the universe, and he immediately tied it to a spiritual meaning. So in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions in the shamsul on a a tournament at lair Liam Cassie fairly Moti I had in one early higher day, when I came to la de la yo

00:26:04--> 00:26:15

with will be Eva who, Allahu Akbar, and maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, that the moon and the sun are two signs of the signs of a loss or shall

00:26:16--> 00:27:06

they do not Eclipse for anyone's death, nor for anyone's life. It has nothing to do with the death in the life of the people. However, Allah subhanho wa Taala uses them your whole life will be here a bad day, who uses them to instill fi to put fi inside of his servants, not the negative fi that keeps you crippled and anxious and worried and not knowing what to do. That's bad fi we don't want that kind of fee. The fee that alone instills in the heart of the servant is positive fee fee that enhances your relationship with a lot fee that gets you up on your two feet, to do the good deeds and the obligations to read your to keep away from and how long, this is the positive fee that we

00:27:06--> 00:27:48

want. Now, when the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam would immediately seek these companions. As soon as the eclipse is taking place, he would see them rush to a solid he would pray to lock out solid and coup, he would encourage them to give sadaqa to make dua to engage in Vicar to seek a last forgiveness to free people from slavery if anyone was asleep, you know, to seek alarm zones protection from the punishment of the grave and the punishment of the Fire and so on. See how beautiful this is. This is how nobody some alarm Alejo, silom trainees companions. When something in the universe changes, he quickly ties them up to a last origin he ties it to a spiritual meaning

00:27:49--> 00:28:10

something that will benefit them. And so once again, we need to do the same thing. When this Coronavirus has changed the world. It's a universal change, we can see what it has done. What kind of spiritual meaning Did you tie it to? This is what we need to ask. This is what we need to do we need to understand laquan take another example of safe

00:28:11--> 00:28:49

summer, summer is a universal change. So the weather changes, there's four seasons, and when summer approaches and summer comes in. And Navy SEAL Allahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to sit down with his companions and they would complain how hot it is. And it's getting sweaty, and it's humid. And this is the weather this is the weather report. None of that. That's fine. Okay, acknowledge that stuff that everyone can see that but what's the spiritual meaning that also the loss of the mom while he was in the mall, pay the companions with so when it was summer, and it was extreme heat, and the result Allahu Allahu wa sallam would take the opportunity. And he would say to his companions,

00:28:49--> 00:29:04

either shut them out for a burrito before. When there is extreme, he deletes a lot of work, and then he would say to them, so in the sheet that will help me unfaithful Shannon, because the extreme deep that you experience in summer

00:29:05--> 00:29:51

is from hellfire. It is coming from hellfire. So now we have companions witnessing summer and extreme heat. And at the same time, they're remembering the fire of the afterlife. They're remembering the fire of the hellfire. And they begin to of course making seeking and loss protection from his anger from his punishment and from the hellfire. Once again Coronavirus is a universal change. What spiritual meaning Did you tie it to? This is what we need to understand. Even in winter, when there was extreme cold and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would also tie that to a spiritual meaning. He would say to his companions, what I should do matters you do and I mean, and

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

Jim hurried in a cemetery. Meaning in the resolve Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, in the Hadith that begins from the beginning he said that the fire it can

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

claim to its Lord. So it said oh Lord akella Baba Baba that the fire parts of me has eaten other parts. That's how intense the flame in the heat is in the fire part of Eden other parts of the fire. So Allah azza wa jal gave permission to the fire for two breaths in the he, he allowed it to breathe out two times a day. So in the result, Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, It breathes out once in winter, and once in summer, and the most hottest and extreme hot day you find is from the breath of jahannam. And the extreme cold the experience is also from the breath of Assam hurried, which is also a form of punishment. extreme cold, is a form of punishment, just like the Hellfire, and

00:30:49--> 00:31:33

extreme heat is a form of punishment. So you see that once again, it was winter, when the result Allahu Allah, your Selim would tie that to a spiritual meaning that the heart is always alive, so that the conscious is always alive. so that you understand behind these incredible universal phenomenons and these huge changes and incidents and events that happened in the world, there's a lot that is behind them. Allah subhanho wa Taala is what causes all of this. So tying them to spiritual meaning. So your Eman could grow and increase, Allahu Akbar, even rain when it used to rain and the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam would come out these companions and say to the maternal

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

before the leg,

00:31:35--> 00:32:08

that we have been given rain and we have been provided with rain, because of a loss, grace and mercy upon us. It's a loss blessing upon us, who would remind them that the rain is a blessing from Allah upon us law. When the re Salalah alayhi wa sallam used to encourage the companions and encourage us that when it rains go out to the rain and expose some of your skin to the rain. For him know how do I develop it because it's fresh, it's coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala it's new. So I have a few of I have a few have a lot of drama on your skin.

00:32:10--> 00:32:55

Whenever you sell Allahu alayhi wa sallam would see these companions in danila Tora den, two things if you do, they are never rejected. Meaning two times of drama, if you are to make drama during these times, they are never rejected. And he said to them, one of them adware or in the mobile data model, do I when it rains or whatever. So this universe will change when you use the rain. He's not just sitting down and telling them Oh, it's raining, we need to be indoors. Did you lock this out? Did you put this in. Now he used to say to them, this is a chance to make dryer and the dryer would be answered or not be rejected. When it rains. A lot of the other generation mentioned under the

00:32:55--> 00:33:33

rain. So go under the rain and make a lot for how beautiful is this? When we understand that also loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam is tying every single universal incident. Everything that happened in the universe, he tie it to a spiritual meaning Allahu Akbar. And when the wind used to blow strong, and that is also a phenomena. It's an event. It's an incident, a universal change. All of a sudden, the weather is calm, all of a sudden the wind picks up and strong wind happens. And maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said these companions, he would say to them, rehome him rohilla

00:33:34--> 00:34:26

re wind is from the mercy of a law or a lawyer, meaning from the mercy of law, law. Follow her law, he DB DB law that he used to say to them, and this wind that comes from a law, it could be a mercy or it could be a punishment. So he'd immediately advise his companions and instruct them and he would say to them, ask Allah to bring you the goodness of this wind to only affect you by that which is good of the wind, such as pollination for the crops and other benefits. And ask seek a loss protection from the Harmon the evil of this wind, which could be destructive and destroy everything that people own. So Pamela, what a beautiful and incredible wisdom and beautiful training that

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would nurture his compassionate companions upon. So now nothing is different. When we experienced this Coronavirus, and no doubt it's a phenomenon. It's a incident it's a huge event that has taken place throughout this entire 2020 and it doesn't mean that it ends with the last day of 2020 this Allahu Allah will keep going on for as long as a lot of social wants. But this is an incident it's a universal change the entire world change as a result, but the believer

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

He's supposed to tie that with a spiritual meaning. That's what we need to do. So what is the lesson that you have learned from this Coronavirus? And what spiritual meaning Did you tie it to? I'll help you and I'll share with you a few. Number one

00:35:18--> 00:35:21

is Coronavirus, no doubt whatsoever

00:35:22--> 00:36:08

in terms of the believer for the case of the believer, it must increase his email in a law law. It must increase your email in a law and in our reflect we have come to the end of the dis Coronavirus. Increase your email in a law and your love for a law and your closeness to Allah absorption or it kept you further away from a law and he created doubt inside your heart concerning loss aversion, and he developed a form of hatred for a large social in your heart will they ever be left cheban will take the advantage and the opportunity to cast this kind of doubt in your heart. But the believer would have increased in his email a lot for a lot as a result of this Coronavirus law.

00:36:09--> 00:36:20

And this Coronavirus is a lesson to every atheist and everyone who doubts the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How is that the case? Let me tell you how.

00:36:21--> 00:36:45

You know, everyone believed in this Coronavirus that it exists. Everyone believed in it. Even conspiracy theorists at the end of the day, they know that there is a virus, but now they're trying to solve who's responsible for it? What is the plan behind this and whatever they discuss, but the ID the virus is there. It's around.

00:36:46--> 00:36:55

And you see this? People believed in this virus even though they did not see it with their eyes, or whatever. So why did you believe in it?

00:36:56--> 00:37:36

Because we saw its effect around the world. We saw people that got sick. We saw people that died if we didn't want to believe that our own family members became sick, some family members that then that promoted us to believe in its existence, and that truly there is such a thing as a Coronavirus. So if we believe in a virus that we did not see with our eyes, but we believed in it because we saw its effect around the world, then in the same manner, you must believe in the existence of a law and accept the existence of a law. Why?

00:37:37--> 00:38:26

Because Can't you see the effect of a lot of soldiers around you. Everything that he created everything that he does in this universe, every drop of rain that he sends down every baby that is born, every person that is cured from his sickness, and the doctors don't know how he was cured. All of this points to the fact that it is a law surgeon who exists in order for these things to happen a lot like a lot. So in the same manner, except that to believe that there is such a virus because you saw its effect, then except that a loss origin exists. Because the effect of a loss origin is all around you like about within yourself. There's a proof that a lot of soil exists all around you.

00:38:26--> 00:38:32

There is proof that Allah subhanho wa Taala exists upon a lot now. So the next

00:38:33--> 00:39:26

kind of spiritual meaning we're supposed to tie with this Coronavirus is that we are supposed to recognize our weakness before loss aversion. recognize your weakness before a lot. Humble yourself and knew that you are weak, do not be arrogant. And don't say things like how we eat government today. We're winning the war against this virus which all you with Allah in a wall. These are words of arrogance. rather ask a law surgeon by His mercy, by his fever by his grease that he removed this virus away from this world. Ask him by his mercy, not were winning the war. These are words these are arrogant words, humble yourself. Because the believer is weak. Rather the entire world is weak

00:39:26--> 00:39:29

in front of something that cannot even be seen by the naked eye.

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

And look at the case of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

When he first arrived to El Medina, after the huge law,

00:39:39--> 00:39:59

there was a disease that was spreading in El Medina. Some were dying from this disease abubaker while their loved one who got affected and he became so sick that he didn't know what he was saying. He was mumbling words. He didn't know what he was saying. That's how sick he became. So when maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he made a door and he said Oh Allah removed

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

This disease, the sickness from Almudena, so maybe some low while he was alive. So in his dream, a black woman that was old, and she was moving away from El Medina. And he interpreted that dream as being the sickness, the disease that will move away from Medina. And it finally ended in a place known as a jofa. You see how in the visa La Liga, Selim dealt with a virus that had become widespread in El Medina, not with arrogance, and we're going to find it and we're going to win the fight. And we're in this together then and then others. He made a humble back to Allah. Oh Allah, move this virus away from Medina. Allah azza wa jal in seconds, he removed it. Overnight, they got

00:40:46--> 00:41:34

up and it was gone. Allahu Akbar. But human beings I tell you, yet to humble themselves before the power of a loss of vision. They are yet to acknowledge and recognize their weakness before the greatness and the supreme and the grand in the grandness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, last question, at the same time, this virus, it teaches us that we are to acknowledge the power and the strength and the dominance that Allah subhanho wa Taala has over this entire universe and over all of his creation, what who will call hillfolk ibehre. They will call hillfolk chi daddy or one Aki Mojave it is a man who is an hour here. He is the one in control over all the affairs of his

00:41:34--> 00:42:20

servants who will Hakeem and he is the all wise. He knows how he controls his servants. We don't need someone to tell a lot what to do and what not to do. Large social deals with his servants the way he wants to have one Hakim he's wise. What he does the servants is upon wisdom. It's not random events. A lot of soil didn't just cast this Coronavirus onto the onto the universe as a as a as just like that, you know, without any purpose. And without any wisdom behind the allowance options cutter is precisely calculated. He's tapana who attallah the old ways the old knowledgeable knows what he's doing. It is you and I that don't know what we're doing and what we're saying. Allahu Allah, Allah

00:42:20--> 00:43:09

tala mode, Allahu Akbar and still I find arrogance in people when they resort to conspiracy theories and try to share that and try to push that around in the world. Why do you know there are some these conspiracy theorists? Are they any what what knowledge do they have? Who are they anyway? Who are they are they are verified source in Islam for you to take from them. A lot of work about this is arrogance. Rather Humble yourself. humble yourself before a loss origin except the last string except the last dominance over this globe and it is his command that will proceed forward. Let Machiavelli hook me what was said here and he said no one has a say after a law surgeons command.

00:43:09--> 00:43:49

And I just just the question for these conspiracy theorists and those who promote and share their work. They say to you they say to you that this Coronavirus is a plan for a new world order for a totalitarian state. It's the 1% Elite around the world that are going to control the entire government control the entire population. This virus the agenda behind it is deep population. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And I just want to ask one question, one question to these Muslims that believe these theories, one question, and that is,

00:43:50--> 00:43:53

what if I was to tell you what if I was to say,

00:43:54--> 00:44:25

couldn't this virus be a loss plan? to stop these people that you call whatever state or government they are? calling this virus B allows plan to stop them from an even greater evil plan they head for the universe? Can it be or not? Of course it can be if you open this door of Qatar and try to understand it and explain it the way you want. You will never end you will never end

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

I will destroy your conspiracy theory with this one single fact that I just mentioned. What about if this Coronavirus is a loss plan to stop this evil part of the world to come up with a much evil plan they had planned so a lot stopped it by sending Coronavirus. Can it be can you say no? Impossible you cannot say no. So please my brothers and sisters in Islam. The first thing that Coronavirus is teaching us is to humble yourself.

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

Don't be arrogant. Believe as Muslims as us as Muslims, as believers, we are alone. We are people of delille. We are people of authentic evidence. We are people of authentic evidence, or law. We need any support along the way we clean ourselves in the toilet. We only do that based on evidence.

00:45:21--> 00:46:04

You know, anything in our life is all based on evidence. That's how the psychology the brain and the intellect of the Muslim works. Everything is upon the lead upon proof. We only pray because there's the lead we only fast because there's proof. We keep away from harm interactions and how long transactions because there's proof. You know, we keep away from certain things that the world finds is enjoyments. Because a lot of holders it's hard on this proof when it comes to Coronavirus. Do you want to run your mouth and run your theories the way you want? Where's the proof for all of this? That he told me there's an elite 1% in the world that wants to govern the entire globe? Where's the

00:46:04--> 00:46:12

proof for this? Where is it? You heard it from such as? Who is this person? Who is he a messenger? Is he a prophet?

00:46:13--> 00:46:55

These people are talking on behalf of what's going to happen on Earth. They don't even know what they're going to do tomorrow. these so called conspiracy theorists tomorrow Tomorrow, what happens in their daily life? They don't know what they're going to eat tomorrow. They don't know. And yo yo as a Muslim, going to take the word of someone that is telling you the future for this world we live and what's going to happen. how weak is such an email? Our email is in a law. Our email is in the law. We know that a lot controls the affairs of everything. Even if they have a filthy corrupt plan, whatever it is, like why do I have to share it? Why do I have to be worried about it? When the

00:46:55--> 00:47:02

vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam in an authentic hadith he said what Instamatic metal what

00:47:03--> 00:47:05

an unusable ruca be she let me

00:47:06--> 00:47:09

elaborate in cabo la like

00:47:10--> 00:47:27

in the re sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that if the entire globe was together to harm you, like Oh, isn't this like you want to think about the Coronavirus? Let's say for example yes all right, there is this entire gold wants to gather against you.

00:47:28--> 00:47:37

what's what's the deal and the visa Lavalle yourself I'm setting the Hadith, they will not be able to harm you except by something that Allah has written upon you.

00:47:38--> 00:48:04

So my brothers and sisters in Islam, be humble in front of this sign of Allah subhanahu wa Coronavirus Be humble and understand that nothing works except by a loss permission. Nothing moves except by laws permission. Nothing affects nothing harms nothing benefits except by a loss or jealous permission in the man who is allowed to share. Pula who couldn't fare good in

00:48:06--> 00:48:23

his command if he wants something to happen, he says could and it happens for Lima. You read? He does whatever he wants. These are the spiritual meanings that you're supposed to tie to Coronavirus Allahu Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal

00:48:24--> 00:48:49

Yanni he his his command overpowers everything, no one stops allows orogens decree at all law. This is what we need to learn from this virus. My brothers and sisters in Islam. Another thing that we need to tie of spiritual meaning to this Coronavirus is that we need to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala just like the eclipse is a sign from the signs of Allah.

00:48:51--> 00:49:18

That Allah azzawajal shows us in order to put positive fi inside of us then this Coronavirus it's supposed to put fear inside of us but positive fi positive fi not negative fi on our musubi at LAN Wi Fi s Coronavirus will instill fi in us in everyone should but positive fee. Now let me explain to you negative fee

00:49:19--> 00:49:22

is terrible, that it will cripple you.

00:49:23--> 00:49:59

It will terrify you. Negative fee is the fee that doesn't give you the ability to do anything whatsoever. You're scared to contemplate suicide, you're depressed, you don't want to live anymore. That's negative feed law. Allah azza wa jal is not putting that inside of us. A large social is putting inside of us positive fee. Positive fee is the fee that promotes us to look into our future to look towards the Day of Judgment. What am I prepared for that day? Positive fi helps you and promotes that you get up

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

You do the righteous good deeds, that you begin to pray on time that you read this. And that has been in the show for many months in Psalm about and you haven't touched positive fees, the fee that makes you give a solid call and look after the poor and the needy. opposite to that negative fee promotes hoarding. You go to the stores, and you just want to buy everything for yourself and keep it for yourself. Because you feel that there could be a shortage of food that's negative fee, positive fee promotes a sadhaka. And to look after those around you in hope that allows origin gives you a reward for what you're doing. Positive fee, promotes being grateful to Allah. So that's

00:50:42--> 00:51:12

positive fee that you thank Allah surgeon for what you have. Yes, so many things have been taken away restrictions and so on loss of job loss of or loss of health, lots of whatever it is, but then there's still a lot more to be grateful for the fact that you still have time on Earth. You have an opportunity for Toba. This is one of the greatest Nam and blessings that you could think a lot of social for will humbly lead. So Pamela positive fee promotes

00:51:13--> 00:51:23

that he asked laws to protect you and to safeguard you. This is positive feed. This is what we want. And that's what Coronavirus does now. So Pamela,

00:51:24--> 00:51:35

we asked the last version, that he awaken our intellect or weaken our hearts and minds. So we can see through all of this and understand what a lot of soil wants from us.

00:51:36--> 00:52:04

Finally, my brothers and sisters in Islam, this is the last perhaps five minutes I share with you. And that's the last discussion point. And that is a warning. Do not curse the virus and do not curse the in which this virus was sent. Do not curse 2020 do not share those messages that curse this at all law. And don't curse the virus. Let me tell you why.

00:52:05--> 00:52:12

Jabba bin Abdullah Hobi Allahu anhu narrates the Hadith, that also the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam entered upon almost say

00:52:14--> 00:52:14

that turning

00:52:15--> 00:52:24

so he said to her What's wrong with you? She looked like she was sick in her bed. So he said to her, what's the matter? Yeah, Messiah.

00:52:25--> 00:52:45

So she said theme aluma leather calavia. She said I have a fever. May Allah not bless the fever. That's considered a form of curse. May Allah not bless the fever, fever, sickness, and the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam said letter superbill

00:52:46--> 00:52:47

do not curse the fever

00:52:49--> 00:53:43

for in their hair to the bull by a man to the Baba Benny Adam. Can I use Hebrew and Kira Hubba Hadid, he said to her do not curse the fever because it wipes away sins of mankind. Just like the blacksmith removes the dirt from the gold or from any other metal. So the idea is, don't curse the virus because the virus is actually a mercy of Allah upon the believer and he wipes away your sins. Do not curse cancer. Do not curse any kind of disease that Allah subhanho wa Taala sins upon His servants Allahu Akbar. Because as we said there a chance and an opportunity for you to seek closeness to Allah azza wa jal and for your sins to be forgiven, and do not curse the ye in which

00:53:43--> 00:54:03

Coronavirus was set and that is 2020 Allah subhanho wa Taala said as in the hadith of Allah one, this is considered Hadith good See, these are the words of Allah paraphrase BIROL who lost loss of the law while he was law said you ve need to know Adam, that the son of Adam, he causes me pain.

00:54:05--> 00:54:05

Yes,

00:54:06--> 00:54:19

he curses time. What an adult and I am time I am time. What does that mean? Brd aka lipo. Laila, what in the hell when alarm soldier says I am time

00:54:21--> 00:55:00

meaning it is a law who controls time. He controls the affairs of the time, alarm, social brings the day and removes the day brings in the night moves the night away, brings in another day and so on. Whenever you sell Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Let the soup Buddha do not curse time. For inala. Who adult because Allah is adult, meaning Allah is the one who controls the time He is the Lord of the time. So v 2020 is only a period of time in which a pandemic

00:55:00--> 00:55:52

occurred, the 2020. The 2020 doesn't hold the ability to benefit us nor harm us. And it's not even a reason for why the pandemic happened. If you cause time, you're cursing a laceration, because of the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, as a long surgeon said, for in the law, who had done a lot of his adult alone is is the time meaning Allah is the Lord of the time. So when you're cursing time you're cursing Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if you're alive so again, and understand the know that the real reason for why this pandemic is with us, and for every type of calamity that befalls us is because of what we have done. Warren facilita feel badly all bow Bhima Kesava ad nurse, a lot of

00:55:52--> 00:56:07

social he said that and for said, corruption has become widespread on land and in the ocean. every type of calamity and evil has happened on land on Earth, because of what people's hand has done.

00:56:10--> 00:56:54

Do you have your own barber living below so that they can taste some of the corruption that they had done? Everything that a lot tests us with of calamities is just the taste of something small of what we have done with our hands of sin and filth whenever we let the 100 year old, so that maybe we can wake up and return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what are we waiting for? are we waiting for another disaster or waiting for things to get worse, Allahu Allah, what will happen in the future, the end of 2020 doesn't mean it's the end of the virus, as some people are sharing the message, you know, sharing the message 2020 out the window, and the virus out the window with it. And 2021 is

00:56:54--> 00:57:17

bringing goodness Malala who knows a lot wanna Of course, we have positive hope in Allah and hi hope in Allah. And we hope and we ask a lot of Xhosa to bring us relief. And to remove this pandemic away from us. We asked him with humility, with humbleness, acknowledging his power and his strength and his dominance over the affairs of mankind.

00:57:18--> 00:58:00

And we don't wait another disaster we didn't know what will happen. So turn to a loss or shall in repentance. Ask him subhanho wa Taala to forgive you of what has happened of your sins and shortcomings. And there is no significance for the New Year in the Life of a Muslim. But I chose to share this lesson at this time because Subhan Allah This is the decree of Allah azza wa jal, I did not intend this specific day, because it's the end of the year and we're about to begin a new year. This really doesn't bother or concern the believer on hamdulillah we have our own calendar, we have our own Islamic key and there is really no significance. It's just a matter of you have come closer

00:58:00--> 00:58:45

to your death. And sit down with yourself every single night. Reflect over what you have done. Reflect over your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala enhance your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah azza wa jal to give us the ability to do so. We asked him Subhana Allah to forgive us of our sins and of our shortcomings. And we asked him Subhanahu wa dialler that he removed this pandemic from this world. And we asked him subhanho wa Taala, to cure the sick, to cure the sick and to have mercy upon the deceased of our brothers and sisters in the Hollywood Ellicott or the Riley, or some of the law who was in the mall about a gallon of ina Muhammad, wa ala

00:58:45--> 00:58:50

alihi wa sahbihi Germaine was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
