Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, my brothers and sisters, in life, we face a different types of challenges. Life without challenges is not real. Meaning that if we are living, we have to face certain challenges. Sometimes they are difficult, sometimes they are easy. And in this current age and time, currently, we are facing one of the biggest challenges of our lives. And that is the challenge of COVID-19. But it is important to note that every challenge teaches us something or the other. And if we don't learn from our experience from these challenges, if we don't ponder and reflect on deriving the lessons from these challenges, then we will not be able to actually improve

00:00:57--> 00:01:02

and even we will not be able to combat certain situations

00:01:03--> 00:01:57

COVID-19 has actually, you know, made people to suffer. And it has actually costed people lives, lot of people's, their beloved ones have lost, you know, people have lost jobs, people are into distress, they're into kind of depression, they are in actually very, very difficult situation. It is important for every one of us to learn lessons from this COVID-19 and I'm your insha Allah to share with you certain reflections that I have actually observed, to learn as a lesson from COVID-19. The first lesson my brothers and sisters, that we learned from COVID-19 that life is important. Life is extremely important. It's not about money. It's not about wealth. It's not about

00:01:57--> 00:02:51

properties. It's not about, you know, your big bungalows, it's not about fancy cars, it's about life. Life is extremely important. And that is the reason Allah subhanho wa Taala he says woman yaha *a Anima Aria NASA Jamia, if you say one life, it is as though you have saved the life of the entire humanity and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned about health which is related to our life. Subhan Allah He said now Matan Mark Boone, FEMA, Cassie roominess of Suharto, well, for many of us are many people, they are neglectful about two great blessings. Number one is good health and free time. So this is the first lesson that we actually learned that life is

00:02:51--> 00:03:44

extremely important, and therefore, we really need to take care of it. Number two, what we learn is it's not about money. It's not about wealth. It's not about status. It's not about you know, you know, our influence that saves and makes us firmed to stand and combat this current crisis of COVID-19. But it is faith that helps us to stand firm, and to face this challenge of COVID-19 people who do not have faith in Allah Almighty, they will get distressed, they will be completely collapsed. But people who have trust in Almighty his decisions, his you know, choices, and his actions will stand firm, and they will gain the momentum of facing this challenge of COVID-19. And

00:03:44--> 00:04:39

that is the reason we see people who are faithful, they are more stronger in taking and dealing with this crisis. That is another lesson that we learned from COVID-19. Lesson number three, we learned that our family that is really, really important COVID-19, this lockdown has actually resulted and gave us a lesson that eventually you need to really, really focused on your family. Because many of us we were at homes, we were not able to go out and do anything any activity, no engagement. Where did we actually locked ourselves in? It's our homes. And that is the reason this actually has invited our attention keenly on our family. So we actually learned how to focus on family, the

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

families they got together, they got together, the chance to speak to each other, to listen to each other to do to live with each other Subhan Allah lesson number four, it does actually soften our hearts towards each other. You know, every now and then when we hear about

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

You know, sad news. And you know, we we actually develop the sense of sympathy towards each other, at the relatives, they started to contact each other, asking the well being of each other, you know, the parents and the and the children, they got to, you know, close to each other, asking their well being again, so Subhan Allah, this COVID-19 a, we learn a lesson that our hearts got softened, we tried, you know, to, to tend to towards, you know, being merciful to each other Subhana Allah, the fifth lesson which I would like to share my brothers and sisters, that we learned from COVID-19 is that death is certain and Subhan Allah, how true prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam, he said,

00:05:48--> 00:06:39

Remember, remember, often the destroyer of pleasures, what is the destroyer of pleasure, it's death Subhanallah death. My brothers and sisters, we are reminded every single day Subhanallah every day, so many 1000s of people are dying. And we need to understand that we will be you know, in the list Subhan Allah one or the other day, and it's not necessary COVID-19 to be the cause of our death. It could be anything, we could depart from this world anytime. But this COVID-19 has actually taught the lesson very closely for people to understand that death is real. And that actually, you know, helps us understand that this world, this materialistic world, is not going to be with us when we

00:06:39--> 00:07:23

depart this world, our wealth, our children, our family, our belongings, everything we have to get disconnected the moment we die. So COVID-19 has actually taught the lesson. And that is to remember our jet often because every now and then we see that you know that brother has passed away that sister has passed away, you know, our relative has passed away, our friend has passed away or our neighbor has passed away because of this. COVID-19 so my beloved brothers and sisters, life is full of challenges. We need to stand firmly and face those challenges and learn from every challenge and get closer to Allah subhanaw taala because that is the only thing that will help us in this world.

00:07:23--> 00:07:45

And in the hereafter. I hope insha Allah and pray Allah to keep all of us safe from this calamity and help us to ignite our attention to live purpose for life, and that is to serve Almighty and benefit humanity. What's up, Mr. Eddie come warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
