a reminder of 10 minutes
especially that a lot of the US here in the Gulf area and Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and the Emirates
have been deprived from going to the masjid to pray Juma prayer. And this is a test from Allah azza wa jal. However, people differ in their response to such a test. Some of us
may complain object
not only that, they may also accuse
people's intentions by saying that this is an Islamic the scholars who said that we should not pray Joomla and Gemma ad
are not authentic there, scholar for dollar there Petro share all these cylinders that we're used to hearing from such ignorant people.
Others went on weeping and whining, saying all of this is because of our sins. Allah azza wa jal has stopped people from coming to Mecca and Medina, for our Umbra and for visiting all of this because of our sins. It's definitely not entirely true.
A third portion
and these are the majority
are those who surrender
to Allah's will.
And they know that Allah does not
For you pre ordained something, except which is beneficial for a believer.
The Prophet said Allah is Salatu was set up
and all of his affairs are good.
If he was blessed by Allah, he is grateful and thankful.
And this is good for him. And if he's tested with a calamity by Allah,
He is patient and tolerant, and this is also good for him.
This is how a believer deals with everything
admits this economic turmoil, stay home.
No stimulus pack.
People are not able to go and pray in messages, especially those who are used to
staying after fajr until sunrise, doing their card and praying to rock eyes, which is better than ombre and a hedge. They see that they have been deprived of so many good things. First, they attribute this to their sense, true. Second, it's a test from Allah. So they have to be tolerant and patient. Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Natrol Minami la sala Han mineka In a wahoo min Fela nahi Yun who hire temper Yeva
Subhan Allah, whoever does righteous pneus whether male or female. While he is a believer a movement, we will surely cause him to live a good life.
I'm a believer.
I do righteous deeds. Am I living a good life?
The vast majority of Muslims would say yes, indeed. But you are poor.
You may be sick. You may have lost your job. You have so many problems in your life. Your wife is nagging. Your kids are disobedient. Your daughter is not abiding by the hijab. Your boss is parking in the shade in front of your own home.
Diabetes, you've got high cholesterol levels you have blood pressure.
What kind of a good life? Are you claiming?
This is the difference between the believers and the disbelievers. The believers. Believe in the six pillars of Eman which the last one of them is
to believe in predestiny, whether good or bad.
We believe that everything that happens on earth, not only that, that happens in the universe has been pre ordained, and written down 50,000 years before Allah created the creation.
This is why you don't need to be a king. You don't need to be a president. You don't need to be a billionaire, to be happy.
challenge and say that those who believe and do righteous deeds are happier than the Kings, the presidents and the billionaires.
Look at the people worried around you. Buying masks sanitizers soap, trying to stay away from everybody they know, fearful of catching this virus. While the vast majority of Muslims,
their hearts are calm.
They know that if you don't die with a virus, you're gonna die with a heart attack. And if not, then you got IDI in so many different ways. So why worry? If you don't die today, eventually you're going to die tomorrow. Not that they are careless
and not take the proper means to protect themselves but they are content. They are living a good life. There is no stress in their lives, there is no depression. They deal with things
easily because it's from Allah azza wa jal, someone bangs their car, they come out and say hamdulillah hamdulillah no one was hurt, what he had taken. So this is a good life that we all look up to. In this world, whoever is given this good life,
then surely it is a first step to paradise. Now you have to ask yourself
are you the weeping and whining type?
Or are you the conspiracy theory? person?
You have to surrender to Allah's will.
You have to find tranquility in your heart.
Instead of weeping and whining, be positive. Yes. 32 years I've been doing and giving hotbar for Joomla. Today is weird for me. Am I sad? Because I'm unable to give the hotbar Yes.
Am I gonna be crippled by that thought? No. I'm going to be more active. I'm going to involve in dowel work. I'm going to read more, answer more questions, give more talks, be positive, radiate goodness to the world. And don't let this crisis cripple you or make an obstacle in front of you.
It's not what happens to you.
That counts. It is how you react. So this is bring us to the end of our 10 minutes, unfortunately. Nevertheless, it's a reminder, it's an eye opener. I need people to come and remind me and to tell me as you also need people to come
to remind you and to draw your Cleany seven in chapter 16 Surah Nahal is indeed something we should look up to. That Allah causes us to live a good life. So ask yourself
is it the cars I have?
Is it my bank account that makes me happy?
Would the things that I
have qualified it to revise ourselves. Go back to the basics, go back to the Quran, study it, go back to the Sunnah implemented. And then we will taste the sweetness of Eman and we will find the beauty of our lives instead of just complaining all the time.
I pray to Allah azza wa jal that he unveils this calamity, and that he protects us and our loved ones and the Muslims from such a pandemic or a disease and to grant us victory over our enemies had wala who are alarmed when he spoke to her immediately it has Salam, WA sallahu wa Salam o baraka and IB and Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Etchmiadzin
