what is the worst thing that a person could be doing during a time like this when there is an outbreak of a virus of some sort? Is it for example, coming into contact with someone who has the virus? Is it to be on the receiving end of someone's needs? Is it to visit areas that are busy with people and highly congested? What is the worst thing that a person could do during times like this? And to answer that question, I take you to the words of a nomadic widow Bashir, the Companion of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said

00:01:13--> 00:01:28

in El Masri better called El Masri and da da da da Mousa, yet he learned he fees in Manila by law. He said that the real meaning of destruction and ruins for a person

00:01:29--> 00:01:57

is when he commit sins during times of prevailing adversity. He said, this is the meaning of destruction. This is the meaning of being ruined, when there is a calamity that is widespread, and nevertheless this person is still insisting upon his crimes and his secret sins, and the rest of it alone, like brothers and sisters to scholars, they offer us a general rule, which is that when there is a

not sooner, tabo Anakin kosaku. Why is it not Allah said that when our calamity came to them, they didn't humble themselves.

00:02:35--> 00:03:18

But their hearts became hard Allahu Akbar. So the Quran gives us two camps, two ways in which people respond during difficulties like this and outbreaks and the rest of it either you have a group who turn to Allah in repentance and amend their ways, amend their private relationships that are haram amend their financial dealings that are displeasing to Allah, they speak out against ills in society. That is one group who see the signs of Allah in a calamity. And then you have another group who are called Satguru who have their hearts, our heart. Choose dear brothers and sisters, which of the two you would like to be part of it change your narrative. Everyone today is speaking about

00:03:18--> 00:03:40

sanitizes and things that you need to take in terms of precautionary measures make the focus on a large energy dilute because when we focus on a problem in dounia, at the expense of our load, it becomes huge in our eyes. But when we focus on Allah subhanho wa Taala and amending our relationship with him, the biggest of calamities will all of a sudden shrink
