From the attributes of the believer is that they are able to recognize the signs of Allah subhana wa tada and then believe in them, to connect them to their Eman. Number one to be able to recognize Allah signs in what you see and experience around you. And then to draw lessons from those signs and connect them to your own heart to your level of Eman to help you to increase in your connection with Allah subhana wa tada Allah

00:01:37--> 00:02:20

azza wa jal says in the Quran, Sunnah Li him, TNF alpha, Wolfie and forcing him Hector you to me and Allah him and now we will surely see show them signs in the horizons and within themselves, so that they may ascertain and recognize the truth from the science that all of us have seen this year. All of us are aware of and we're still being constantly reminded of is the power of Allah subhana wa Tada. And now we're totally weak and dependent we are upon Allah subhanho wa Taala, his fevers and his blessings, how the whole world has come to a standstill, and a stop because of something that is invisible to the naked eye. That never in our lifetimes did, we imagine would cause as much

00:02:20--> 00:03:04

disruption as it has caused, and he continues to do so. And every time we think that we're coming closer to the end, Allah subhanaw taala sends us another sign to be able to recognize those signs, but more importantly, to be able to benefit from them, grow lessons from them, increase your Eman through them. That is a sign of the sign of a Muslim. So Allah subhanaw taala sent us these reminders. Just a few weeks ago, we were told that our hamdulillah they found a vaccine. And so people started to rejoice and people started to think that the end was near. But then how shortly afterwards, did they discover a new strain of the same disease and everything's gone straight back

00:03:04--> 00:03:42

to the way it was, things have become harder than perhaps they even were a few weeks or months ago. That is the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala either. So when you see a sign from the signs of a large religion, to be able to connect it to Allah subhanaw taala to increase your Eman through it. That is from the science of a believer. And that's the point that I want to make to you today. There's hope but today is not about the vaccine or being pro anti vaccine or any of that issue. But I want to connect this to a point of appeal to a point of belief. Because if we as Muslims don't benefit from what we see around us that is a sign of the weakness of our own emang the sign of a

00:03:42--> 00:04:23

distance between us and between Allah subhanho wa Taala from the names of Allah azza wa jal that we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to describe our Lord and creator subhana wa tada is there is an Shafi The one who grants cure and it has become predominant in our culture in our time. We just the way that we are because by the permission of Allah We live in a time and in a society that is very driven by technology and science and medicine. That we often when we think about the issue of illness and cure, or disease and vaccine, we tend to play so much stock in the means that we disconnected from the one who gives power to the mean subhana wa Tada. That is common.

00:04:24--> 00:04:58

If you look through the Quran, you will find that a large dogen when he speaks about cure, when he speaks about recovering from illness, Allah azza wa jal always connected to himself. But well we have become and this isn't just about COVID you have a headache and you take the tablet you become ill The first thing you do is call your doctor. You feel some type of pain you think you need to go to a&e and get an X ray. But the way that the Quran tells us to think of this is that when you become ill, when you experience pain, the first thing that it should remind you of is the power of Allah subhana wa tada one of the first things that you should be doing is turning to Allah in in

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

tober in Italy,

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

So far in asking Allah azza wa jal to kill you in using the Quran to recite over yourself over that place where you're experiencing pain of making the dials that you find in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That is how our religion tells us to understand this issue, because we know as Muslims, that it is Allah who grants cure, and that's why there are people who statistically from COVID-19 shouldn't be getting ill shouldn't be dying, but they're dying. And there are people who should be able to recover, but because of their health and because of how fit they are, but they still experiencing long COVID symptoms and fatigue. And then there are people who are extremely old

00:05:35--> 00:06:19

and vulnerable, but a large soldier kills them and they're fully back to full health. That is the power of Allah subhana wa Tada. Even in the Quran, when Allah azza wa jal mentioned the issue of cure, he connects it to a man. A large dogen for example, says concerning honey, the honeybee in the Quran, remember Tony hashirama telephone and Wi Fi she Family Nurse, Allah says that we draw from the stomach of the honeybee, a drink of various colors in which there is cure for people. And then Allah says in nafi, radical Arya 10 niccone yet a Corona indeed in that there is a sign for the people who reflect and think the BS means who gave it the power, who gave it the ability, who gives

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

the honey, the ability to cure it is by the permission of Allah subhana wa Tada. So when you take medication or you take a tablet, or you take a injection or a vaccine, and all of those are halaal means they're permissible for you to take, and you should be taking them. And if it's something which you need to do, you should do, but you should always know that the power behind them lies with a large religion, your riemannian Allah should come first because if it doesn't, that's a bigger problem. Look at how a large religion in the Quran describes this issue. The Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salman is addressing his father and his nation, his people, and he's describing to them some of the

00:06:54--> 00:07:31

most important attributes of Allah subhana wa Tada. So they will be able to recognize Allah and differentiate Allah from the many idols that they worship besides him. He says, We're either married to February a spin, and when I am ill and sick, he is the one who grants cure Subhanahu what's either in the Hadith in Sahih Muslim the people of the ditch the stories mentioned by Allah referred to in Surah to borouge. But in the long narration that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned of their story in Sahih, Muslim, the young man who becomes a believer to Allah azzawajal gives him by his permission, the ability to cure the blind and the leper and those who are sick. One

00:07:31--> 00:08:11

of the king's advisors The king was a desperate an evil man who would wouldn't allow people to stray from his way and from his religion, but one of the kings closest advises the man who's blind, and he hears of this young man who's curing people. So he comes to him and he says, I will give you everything I have all of my wealth if you kill me. So the man replies and he says, I cure no one. It is Allah who cures. So if you believe in Allah, and you make dua to Allah, then Allah will kill you. So the man believes that mix two and Allah kills him. That is how we find this issue in the Sunnah is not permissible for him to seek How does the man say to him, you can't seek medication, you

00:08:11--> 00:08:47

shouldn't take the tablet you shouldn't take no, but he said to him, remember that the one who gives the cure is always Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would visit people who would allow them to take medication, he will tell them get cupping. Drink, honey, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told a group of people to drink from the milk and urine of camels that he would help in the ailments and illnesses that they were afflicting them, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam always connected it back to Allah subhana wa tada in the Hadith are very short on the one hand clickfunnel Bukhari and Muslim. She says that when the Prophet

00:08:47--> 00:09:30

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would visit someone who was sick or ill, he would say to them alone, or he will make a duel and say alohomora bananas, as he bill bass is 20 Shafi lash she fell in love she felt she felt Allah Subhana Allah Lord of all people, the one who takes the one who gives the takeaway the illness of this person, for you are the one who cures there is no one who can give your except you a cure that removes all illness, he would connect the illness and the Cure Back to the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is Al Shafi. So when we don't have the understanding when our Eman doesn't make that connection, when our knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala doesn't allow us

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

to connect the means to the one who gives power to those means, then that is when our trust in Allah becomes weak. We don't rely upon Allah azza wa jal as much as we do. And it becomes a bigger problem because as our Eman becomes weaker, and our connection with Allah becomes more distant and so the ability to make these connections becomes harder for us even when Allah gives us these massive signs. Then the problem with that is a greater issue in our opinion and our belief and our Eman so

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

We start to put more trust in the means, except unless in the one who gives power to those means Subhanahu wa Tada. So if you have the ability to take a vaccine from the vaccines that are currently on the market for COVID, or some other medication, you're told that it's good for you and there's benefit, there's nothing Haram in them, you should take them. And you should take that medication. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a number of a hadith allowed people to do so. And if you don't want to take them, you don't have to take them. But the point here is that for us as believers as people of Eman as Muslims, we understand that it is Allah who gives cure, that it is Allah who

00:10:35--> 00:11:11

grants people could have that it is Allah who controls life and death, they are in essence subhanho wa Taala alone. And that is our email. And that is our belief when it comes to these issues from the crops of shaitaan is he makes us disconnect these types of things. And so from the signs of the believers is when they see those signs that Alonzo vigil gives to them places all around them. They're able to make those connections may or large religion makers from amongst them barakallahu Li walakum, flew for annual seminar, one of our annual jack Murphy members It was a political we had our staff at aloha the welcome belligerent and Muslim leader bill for stuff you know, in our for

00:11:11--> 00:11:11

right

00:11:21--> 00:11:59

smilo from the de la salatu salam ala rasulillah. Early he was talking to a woman who Allah was seldom at the Sleeman kathira mabank. The name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Shafi, the one who grants a cure has a second context to it, the second meaning to it. Often when we think of illness, and cure disease, vaccination, those types of issues, we think of them as they pertain to the physical ailments of the body, and the diseases that afflict our organs and the pain that we feel as a result. And that's the way that we think of this. But the name of Alonzo dilla Shafi, the one who can secure has a second more important meaning for us as Muslims, because there are diseases and

00:11:59--> 00:12:36

illnesses that are far more dangerous to the Muslim than even COVID-19, cancer and all of those other ailments, yes, they are dangerous, and they need to be taken seriously. But for us as Muslims, there is another type of illness that affects us and it is hidden. And those are the diseases and the illnesses of the heart. Those are the ones that the Muslim has to be more aware of, because Allah azza wa jal won't judge you either way, if you happen to contract COVID-19 cancel some other type of issue, but the diseases of the heart that are hidden from the eyes of people, and sometimes we ourselves are oblivious of those are the ones that will destroy you in terms of your art either

00:12:36--> 00:13:17

in terms of your Eman in terms of your reliance and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala either. So Alonzo vigil when he speaks about Shiva in the Quran, there is a second more important context. And that is as it relates to the cure of the hearts from the diseases of disbelief and hypocrisy of jealousy and envy, of hatred and arrogance. And those are the types of illnesses that affect a person's heart. A large incision or Anya yohannes had come over to Nairobi come where she felt when Lima is pseudo, oh people that has come to you from your Lord, a reminder and a cure for that which is in the hearts. That kill is in the Quran. By learning about your religion by connecting to Allah

00:13:17--> 00:13:54

by worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada. When you have that understanding of the prana and you use it with that strong Eman. Not only will it solve your physical ailments by the permission of Allah azza wa jal as a means of ropey and a means of cure. But Allah azza wa jal says that they will also kill more importantly, the diseases and the illnesses of our hearts. large audiences were known as zero middle Bharani Ma, who was she felt what Julian mumineen and we have posed to be revealed in the score on that in which there is a cure for the people and a mercy for the believers, all who are living in a man who, who the Shiva, say that for the believers in this, there is guidance, and there

00:13:54--> 00:14:28

is mercy to understand the meaning of these names of Allah subhanaw taala is extremely important because it increases our demand in Allah azzawajal but more importantly, it allows us to be able to use them in those ways that we should use them in order to strengthen our Eman closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah azza wa jal most Most Beautiful Names enough to actually be studied protects us all that Alonzo tell quants cure to us and to those from amongst our loved ones that are sick, that Allah subhanaw taala shows His mercy amongst those upon those of our brothers and sisters who have passed away recently. But Allah subhanaw taala eases our affairs protect us and our

00:14:28--> 00:14:39

communities and our allies though gel returns us back to full health and to normality SubhanAllah. bigger better is that the hamanasi phone was Santa Monica mousseline en hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen
