Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks to us in the Holy Quran, and allows behind what Allah says
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. filamin so Mizuki Roby Fatah alayhi wa Bakula she had to either 30 or 49 to two as of now who was 1030 Delta movie soon sada Hello Ali.
We thank and praise our last panel tada we put Salawat and Salam on his beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for all the blessings that He has
given us, and we thank our last panatela for the tests that he's putting us through and we think allows pilota faith enough Eman and our belief and our faith in Allah subhanaw taala and we thank Allah Spano, tala, for
making us aware of this life in this dunya is but a part of the life which will continue inshallah, in the agenda for all of us.
The topic of today is Corona, is it an opportunity? Or is it a catastrophe?
First of all,
from a spiritual point of view, and from a dean point of view,
we do we
place the Coronavirus, this virus that is engulfed the whole of humanity. This virus that has
leveled the playing fields
for all in the world with a president Prime Minister King or prince or pauper, we've realized that we have the same material. And we have the same vulnerabilities. And we assess susceptible to the same illnesses and diseases.
And nothing stands between cure
an illness, except the other have a loss.
If we look at the modern world, what do we see the modern world, we see arrogance. We see the lack of humility.
And we see that man has given himself the status of a creator, he has created science He has created medicine He has created, the ship sets sail on the sea, he has created all these great things and he attributes that to his own power and his own knowledge and his own
whatever he may call himself great or powerful, and so forth and so on.
Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Holy Quran,
in Surah, in Surah, Al anon verse
42 to 44 a lot father says, What are sellner illa Allah min min publika Allah says,
We have sent before you
many prophets, many people who came with the message of the greatest of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
First now who will, sir and we tested them? What the raw? We tested them with calamities. We tested them with bactine la la boom, boom. And why did why did we do this? What was the purpose or loss I'm going to since he did this in order for them to develop humility? Because they were adamant. They were arrogant. Allah Subhan Allah says fanola either Jacques Sonata Dora Wallach in Casa pulu boom, was a gentle homeless shelter in America and we are Malou Allah. Allah says,
we send all these messages to them thinking that they will become humble.
But what happened was that in
their hearts became hard.
Their minds became strong
And the art became Holland and what does Allah say? was a another homeless shelter and shaitan Of course came along and took the gap and he made whatever they did beautiful to them. Oh this is Mashallah. This is good for you This is good for you. This is good for you. For Allah man asuma Ducky Ruby allows father said and when they forgot the message
when they forgot the message
fatahna Allah him Ababa Cooley Cooley Shea
allows founder says, When men forgot the message, what are you gonna do to them? punish them? No, unless it's when they forgot. I opened for them the doors of all the good of the world. Everything came to them, money, wealth, everything came to them. And what happened?
Unless he is hacked at either 30 who, until they reach the pinnacle of enjoyment, now what say, enjoy everything they've enjoyed. There's nothing in the world that they haven't enjoyed. had that either all the good things I gave them. They did not attribute it to my generosity, they attribute it to themselves. What does Allah say?
hatay the 30 who until they reach the pinnacle of enjoyment, Pima all do with that which I gave them which they were given by me. I have now whom
for whom have listened allows panatela say, says and when we call them to account,
what happened? They will plunge into the space.
Like mankind, all of humanity plunged into despair. There is not a single good report in the newspapers on internet, wherever you may see on television,
about this being a mercy from God, or it being a case from God, or whatever it may be all about doom and gloom and doom and gloom and depression.
Wisdom see it otherwise Muslim said as a test. Muslim see it also. And we should see that a lot of analysis. This is a test of our humility to Allah was Hannah Montana we have, of course, arrogant comes in many forms. Today we have individual arrogance.
People don't have any respect for each other anymore.
And we have national arrogance, we have countries that say we are the greatest, we want to be the greatest. We're gonna make ourselves great again. Everybody's competing on the stage of greatness. We have global arrogance, global arrogance in that one country thinks that they are the big they they manufacture everything for the world. They can overtake the world. The others are the biggest army and they can conquer the world.
And this was the attitude of the people who aren't in the mood.
And what it allows him to do to them. What did they say? What was the cry? They cry was?
Man I shut up now.
look at the world who is strong, who is the strongest in the world today who is the most powerful in the world today.
The Challenger was it We are the most powerful, everyday law what it allows you to do to Allah, just a wind, when we take a breeze as a beautiful thing, we take wind as a good thing.
And I'll destroy them just for the wind, few days of wind and they will go
and allow spondylosis
must have balama
Aniruddha they chose blindness in the place of guidance.
Instead of taking the tests which are last one was given to them, with humbleness and humility accepted and change their lives. No, they continued.
So when we look at the world today, we see all the suffering we see all the the inequalities
and we see the arrogance of nations to these nations think that they will get away with it. The Muslims think what they do they will get away with it. Muslims killing Muslims Allah swans Allah is asleep a lot of how La La La quwata illa Billah ma de la la la doesn't see what they're doing or love or not. They like to wait for qiyamah for retribution and punishment. No, I lost wonderla loves us that's why I sent us these calamities, so that we may change our behavior on the dounia and get gender in the Astra
and allow swannanoa says
I send you I will send you tests from where you never dream where it will come from, like the Coronavirus who dreamed that this would happen. Nobody people forecast that there was a man who forecast benefits scholar in Jordan, that there would be a depression the worst depression in the world in 2020.
A man with one on
But nobody could prophesied that allows from the roots in this kind of current witness.
So what is this for us? for Muslims This is
an opportunity and a test allows one that we know that Islam is a religion of wake up, that we need to wake up as human beings and Muslims, where human beings are ready to wake up as Muslims
you know, Muslims we seem to suffer from what is called spiritual Alzheimer's.
We have forgotten who we are.
We are forgotten where we belong.
We have forgotten where we come from.
And we have forgotten we regarding
the world has entranced us to such an extent that we think oh, this is just it. This is it. Looking some people look in the mirror and say this is it. This is my house, my car, my job. And this is never gained.
And everyone what happened to Dyson I've got to do scandalous stuff in this dunya is better.
is better than a needle being sunk in the ocean and whatever it comes up with that is the dunya
Professor Salaam said locality dunya tardy Lu Jana haba Oda tiene la masaka la okay. phyllanthus putana, Nafisa Salam said if Allah had equated this world, if the value of this world in the sight of Allah
was equal to the wing of mosquito, allowed not a given disbelievers a drop of water to drink.
So this world in the eyes of Allah is not worth is not equivalent to is not does not have the value of a ring of mosquito.
So we live in terms of a hafler
of who we are where we come from, and we're going
to give example of carp even Malik Malik was one of the great Sahaba than me solo Solomon evisa salam in one day called for
army to be formed to
make war the Byzantine army in the north of the Arabian Peninsula, and then asked for an navigated massive army that we told them, the difficulties they were going to go in winter, go through the desert, and to prepare themselves and Gabi Malik
he decided with two others. In fact, there were 80 people who stayed behind. in Medina, we did not join the profit for some.
But this is specifically about carbon, copy Malik, one of the Sahaba, who
participated in all the Jihad except this one. And he gives the reason he says I didn't participate in this one. Because we're at the time when the President made this call I was at for the first time in my life, to shake hands. I was living comfortably.
I had I was well off.
And I decided I'm not going to go have this Jihad with a prophet or something.
So when the Prophet came back
and while the Prophet was coming back, he thought to himself, what am I going to say to the prophets of Salaam when he asked me
why did not join the jihad. And when the Prophet came back in in the masjid Prophet, they opened at 80 people came with him during the Prophet, all of them made excuses and when it was caps, time, and the Prophet forgave them, cop said, You're a pseudo low.
If you were any other man,
out of giving you the best of excuses that I could,
but knowing who you are knowing that we are answerable to Allah subhanho wa Taala
I will tell the Absolute Truth.
So you said you're a soul I have no excuse. No excuse.
So the prophets of Salaam said to him,
then I leave it in the hands of our Los Alamos decide your case.
And he was told by the Sahaba, that the Nabi sallallahu wasallam had decreed that nobody should greet him.
Nobody should visit him.
And he should be confined to his house. Exactly what Allah Allah is doing to us.
This was his disobedience that we saw some prescribed social isolation.
Imagine Muslims don't greet you, they don't look at you. Although he did go to the masjid every day, but the prophets are ignored him. The prophet SAW that he was looking at the Prophet Prophet, look away.
So hon Allah and for 40 days he made Vicar remain
ally, decided for him for 40 days. He stayed at home.
he got the message from the prophets of Salaam
that he doesn't go to his wife
leave his wife. So probably also he sent a message as a prophet Messiah devoted Prophet said no mustn't go near don't touch.
So he sent his wife to her parents. And he was at home alone.
And then Allah subhanaw taala after 50 days on the 15th day, you got the news that allows handler forgiven him.
What did you think?
He thought was done. No, Allah, Mal Jimena La la la. He realized
when you're sick, he realized,
well, then we realize Allah Majid, you cannot run away from Allah except to Allah.
Printing run away from Allah, in fact, running towards a loss fountain, because our destination on this dunya no matter where we turn, what we do, how we try and deny or overlook
our journey is back to Allah was Panama.
So that is the situation we're in.
We're in a situation where we have opportunities as well as calamity Yes. To test Yes. But what are the opportunities that the businessman looks at? Isn't it in all the depression that we we have? That is what we as the prophets of Salaam was a trader and they knew how to look at benefits.
So people say we're living in difficult times. I say, we're living in times of great opportunity.
Let's look at the lockdown.
War in lockdown.
Many people have difficulty we don't i don't deny that a lot of difficulties around.
But what are the benefits? Is there any benefits?
For me, the greatest benefit is that
Allah has given us time something that we never had before we are always in a hurry always rush when when we go and make Salah, what do we say? Is that Whoa, Salama quickly, gonna make Salah. I have to do this, I have to eat after appointment after Good work, etc, etc, etc.
Now we have what we think about now that we set it down what do we think we think about death, we think about life.
We're afraid. We think about the future, we think about the power of allows on the lookout already to handle
things powerless, completely powerless, 7 billion people.
We look at the helpless of ourselves. And then of course, we reflect upon our relationships.
If we married now we now in the household a with a wife and their husbands, they have an opportunity to create a better relationship, or to create a relationship where there was no relationship. Because most of us work eight hours a day, eight hours a day away from home, and the wife also works. And when we come home at night, we're so busy with the children, whatever we are, there's no time to build relationships. Now we have the time. This is a wonderful opportunity with our parents, with our children. And with our families pick up the phone and say hello, you have all the time how to do all those family members that you haven't seen for a long time phone that will say if you
don't have the courage to phone them that they send them a WhatsApp message.
But what is the most important relationship in our life?
The most important relationship is our relationship as Muslims what allows
That is a relationship that's going to endure. All the other relationships will come to an end.
If our wives I would marry another wife, if our husbands died and we still can we made another husband. We can adopt children.
We can make many people make family out to their friends.
But we can't replace our relationship with Allah. Who's final.
how is it possible to build relationship with the last panel data you asked? How do I do that?
any relationship is built on communication.
If you don't have communication, there's no relationship. The same applies to allows
any relationship is built upon goodness you cannot have a relationship with anybody. And this is an element of goodness.
So allows the Prophet is there's a beautiful Hadith which will
No, would you believe came in he sat in front of the Prophet and the Prophet questions and then finally asked the Prophet, he said to the Prophet Mao or lesson, what is goodness?
And to build pride and he said,
and tabooed Allah haka, indacaterol for a lambda counteroffer in no Iraq,
Julian said, goodness is
for children's mercy from Allah harmattan
goodness is to worship Allah if you can see him
for if you cannot see him, then certainly he can see you.
And I want to focus for the last 10 minutes of of this talk was jomar talk
on that communication, which is so vital to our relationship with a loss.
And I speak from my personal experience at home now that I mix that I go with my wife
how I have gone on a
journey of discovery,
having taken Salah for a long time.
We need man for many years
I've now discovered the essence
of a barter for our last panel tied to a loss
and what he means how can you connect with a loss
There are many ways to connect with the lost hanadarko There are many ways of remembrance of our loss founder Peter Mike Victrola people read the Koran people do many things they give sadaqa they do. I mean we have five pillars because a car we go for Hajj, we fast in the month of Ramadan is all divided.
But Salah has no equal
because Salah is the one I bada that is not exchangeable
for another day or another time.
If you're by a full sentence, even if you are paralyzed, you set up an extra line in your head, or by moving your eyes.
And what is Salah?
What is Salah?
I want to
give you the reference of a beautiful verse of the holy crap.
It's in Surah Toba?
No, that's what I thought, the 20th surah
verse 13, and 14.
Because what do we seek for? We always seek for the best. So we talk about communication with the last founder. What is the best way of communicating with a loss?
I mean today, you know we have
so many forms of communication with one another. I remember when I was a kid, we didn't even have a telephone. Today we have so many we can speak to somebody and seem like you I speak to you and you can't see me but I can you can see me but but I can't see you. This wasn't possible to give a lecture from my study.
So many things have changed, but nisab has always been constant. And what does Allah say what is the best form of Victrola please for Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says, so that all the 13 and 14
you speak to the profit or loss element
in any other law says
a law simple in many verily I am Allah La Ilaha Illa Anna, there is no Li besides me.
Besides iOS is besides hard like first.
And unless is twice time you'll note I created the universe. If you doubt it, you can't doubt this Corona should teach you that you can't doubt the greatness and the pervasiveness of a Lost Planet.
Then what does Allah say often Allah says fab would mean they so worship me.
Then allows for this is what Hakim is solitary decree.
Establish regular prayer. If you want to. Remember me,
Vicar. asked him, his salata, decree, make Salah for my Vicar.
So the best always comes from Allah. Tada.
This is the advice of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When is the best advice? If you want to remember life when you get close to Allah, there's only one way to do it. Because we know people seek many ways to allow for them. But Allah says this is my way
so solid two things solid
and solid is a bad it's too hot and high bar
and I want to bring you to some understanding of
essence of Salah
you know when we stand we stand in front of a Lone Pine wattana and are in a hot tub. It's reported that we need to Kudu he used to shiver even if Medina gets very hot and if you turn red and so how would you ask him you know when you take will do Why are you showing Why are you turning red? I mean what what what what is it that troubles you? He says Homer said when I take who do
I am preparing myself to stand in front of a lot and I don't know how I'm not going to stand in front of a loss.
Like a Man going from interviews.
You know, doesn't know what's going to happen in the interview. Similarly, Salah is like an interview. So it's not a face to face conference. It is a con face to face meeting because unless I can see you if you can't see me I can see I'm looking at you.
I am looking at you. So
one day abubaker acidic, a lot a lot. And I want you to when you make Salah, now I want you to go back to the Salah, and look at the meanings of everything you say from the time you say you're near too late.
What beautiful words we speak to to our last parameter.
But I want to
bring your attention to this fact.
There is there are in the Salah, and there is after the Salah.
We know after the seller will make the Corolla
but he's also certain in the Salah.
And I want to tell you
how is the dog in the Salah
Abu Bakr Siddiq la de la kalon and unerase the Hadith and it's in Buhari you can go look it up.
Go and look up Dora after the salah and Buhari in the chapter onto after the Salah. And you will find this hadith abubaker went to the Navy society Dr. rasulillah
I want you to teach me a DA which I can make in the Salah. But after the Salah cbrs Allah so it was common knowledge amongst the companions and the prophets of Salaam that there is there are in the Salah. So the prophets of Salaam said to him make the fall into I in the Salah.
Allahumma inni then up to the New Bern Kabira
while I still don't know but Atlanta, Finley Murphy written me 90 What honey inika until a food
processor Samson said I will Buckaroo in the Salah mini maxilla in this before you make Salam megastore because he specifically out of the Prophet gave me though I can make in the Salah.
I'll tell you where the DA should be made in the salon. We know we are closest to Allah in the suit so you can make it in the suit.
But then you can also make it before the salon after the after you read the Tasha hood to read the dish out and we know all of us make drying the dishes after the shower
alarm in our older bigger mean other binnorie water bill Aubrey effect Natalie Maria Walmart or fitness Sharma See I betcha that's a dog all I seek refuge in You from the punishment of the grave and from Jana mucho de da
that is the time for Salah in the Salah.
Abu Bakar is to make the door after that. What does the door say?
Allah, them in Nila allama in even Abdo Allah I have committed many sins.
Well I asked you to do nobody laughed and nobody can forgive sins except you. fiddly. muffuletta minarik so give me a forgiveness from you, Oh Allah directly from
war harmony, and have mercy on me in the candle of all right, when you are the most forgiving, Most Merciful. Imagine this man
who is one of the people promised on the dunya but the Prophet gives him this kind of artwork in the Salah about sin,
forgiveness of sin.
Why? Because the Prophet knew the nature
abubaker did he was aware of his shortcomings despite his greatness, he was aware that it was silly. He still depended on our last handle until the last minute to forgive a sense.
So even if he says Kamal Dozier was a scholars to give us great scholar but it was a student of ebony Tamia.
Rahim Allah, He says that when is the best time to make dua
in the salon after the salon
and he says, when you are in the salon, you're connected to a lot of data. So you got the phone in your hand. You got the phone in your hand and you are speaking to all another speaking back to you.
For example, if you come up from the record you say send me a lovely man hamidah Allah Yeah, those who praising
and then we stand What do we say? Robin Allah
all praises Utah last. In the ruku Allah says, I yeah, those who praise me. And when we get up what do we say when we stand we say, Robin, Allah, Allah, Allah all praises do to you. So there is a conversation.
Even if he says
when you're in the salon, you are in direct contact with a loss.
So use the time before the salon to make to add one last time you are because you're connected, because the moment you say assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah the connection is severed Scott from tonasket no internet finish class communication is the direct communication but the direct communication with allies only for that period of time.
So make use this is what I want to say to you to make use and I will read that slowly made as you can make the opposite you normally make a lovely little Nova, the Nova de la mahogany, whatever the and of course the best or to serve hungry life You don't know what to say Sal? hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah and in your mind to say Allah, I'm thanking you for everything I'm in touch with you. I'm in contact with you, you hear me? You listen to me. And I'm saying I'm a failure because Allah philia allama philleo Allah forgive me, forgive me.
along my journey Minato Allah say me from the fire you have to handle all these toys you can make and then after you can bake salad then you make your liquor Romani macchiato.
this is coming directly from Nabi sallallahu Sallam and our best example of the Sahaba Lim Salaam is abubaker acidic odonata so my advice
finally to all my brothers and my sisters in lockdown is going to be Ramadan, it already feels like Ramadan you really locked up the mind or the time I was in Attica so it is a preparation for me for being at home all the time now but really it's a great time to reflect and and I want to say to you that now is the time to make your Salah properly
go to the internet everything is the all the meanings of everything you say Isn't it beautiful things you say?
And it's the quickest way to jump easiest way to generate the Navy's asylum set. For example, if you read 33 types of ahana hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar after the Salah, what is your reward?
The reward is Allah will forgive all your son's
one O'Connor mythos Aberdeen
even if it is as much as the foam on the sea. Hello. We have seen
I have the time. I don't have to rush when you say salaam aleikum up and gone. No. You said you said well
well that's given me the stamp. Let me make that and if you read the articles before before that, allow that Allah Allah will hire you. What is the reward of that? reward of that is that if you read the actual course curse after the Salah as part of your Vicar
if you should pass away after that Salah between that salah and the next Salah. You will enter Paradise, Johanna movie haram for you. Just
nothingness. So now last time to give any when you read your note with most polluting challenge every walk in every working with me to conclude that allows pantalla must protect us from this calamity and our families and the oma lovers guide the owner to the path of
Surat and Mr. Key, then we again become the exemplary
followers of the greatest mercy which allows panelists into the world
My salon is gonna protect you and I will protect your family smaller forgive my love forgive our parents will not give that our relationship with our loved ones become truly blessing relationships in the month of Ramadan. I'll give that as we will connect with our families in this one that we must realize that our biggest connection is what allows your lovemaking Charla that one of us must have a special relationship with allows pilota as Nagisa Salaam said
unless is in a Hardee's policy, and is an island.
that I am what my servant thinks I am. So you can have a special relationship on what you think will last you think allies marshallese giving these loving he's prepared the agenda for me in that is your image of Allah and all of that nature of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah Subhana Allah guide us in sha Allah, and maybe always, always, always. Whatever I've said today is either from Rosario Muslim or Hadith so here it is from the poor and May Allah give that we always go back to the poor and in the son of the Navy. So
that is the final message from our last panel that Allah allows one prophets or Salaam says there are two fee coma income a septum Bhima kita la he was immunity. I have left for you my own my two things, the Quran in the sun. All the other ideas that people come with that this one I've said that and I think it's like this and you think and this is good and that No No, only Allah knows what is good for us and His Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah encourage us put in our heart, the desire to learn this Deen of Allah subhanaw taala but Allah put in our heart so understand the omni channel. Now I want to just announce that every Sunday at 12 o'clock
