00:00:05--> 00:00:47

Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa ala alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa Tamil ambia Emmanuel serine Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ash marine Allah Maurice Allah Allah Ilana temboo Sandler one hasn't either she Sandler rbse Rollo tomassi with me, Bill hi Robbie canister in, we send calahorra Melissa to General for having gathered us here online. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with America, and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR Allahu wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them. I mean,

00:00:49--> 00:01:39

there is darkness, the tunnel is very, very long. We cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. Yes, there is chaos across the globe. We don't know what is going to happen. We don't know when this calamity that has befallen us will pass when it will be removed by the almighty omble is that you are jealous. But in all of this in all of the darkness, Allah subhanho wa Taala has a light and He grants it to certain people. Remember that if you are a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala then you can be a bearer of his light. Allah horrible. Is that your Genesis? Yeah gulino de money

00:01:40--> 00:01:49

and he guides to his light whomsoever He wishes. And remember, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:01:50--> 00:02:45

Azure then the Unreal mean, amazing is the effect of a believer in a mahu lambda high. Indeed all of his affairs are good for him in a small batch who saw whoa check out Can I feel Allah if goodness befalls him, he thanks Allah subhana wa Tada. So it is good for him. Or in our sobre todo la una Saba for kana fail. And if evil bad befalls him, then he has patience, and it is good for him. While I said very clearly I had been in lateral movement. And this is not for anybody except for the believer. So in these trying times, when the world doesn't know where it is going, when we have no idea what is going to happen. Our leaders are also uncertain, they don't know what is going to

00:02:45--> 00:03:37

happen. In fact, just today I was reading about how certain countries are stealing other countries, deliveries of masks and medical supplies. So these are accusations that are out there that are being made by certain countries over others. A Why did you steal our medical supplies? Why did you steal our medical equipment? Only a person who has weak faith in their maker or not at all will go out and steal the medical equipment of a mother. Why? Because they know that what ever is going to come to you will never miss you. A believer knows that whatever is going to come to you will never miss you and whatever is going to miss you will never come to you. My point here today is that the world is

00:03:37--> 00:04:30

in chaos. Yes, people don't know what is going to happen and what is happening right now. We don't know how we are going to be delivered from this problem. But remember that in the UN and in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is a guiding light. And this is why a surah Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says amazing is the fate of a believer, all of his affairs are good for him. If something good happens to him, he thanks Allah subhanho wa Taala something bad has happened to him, he has patience, why? Because he knows that ultimately, whether it is good or bad, my actions will determine what will happen to me in the URL here. So if I am good, in my response to

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

that difficulty to that hardship, in most definitely my maker will look after me, he will reward me He will guide me and he will grant me so much goodness. So yes, the tunnel may be dark, but we know that at the end of the tunnel there is light even though we may not be able to see it, even though we may not be able to see it when Eunice Allah your Salatu was Salam was in the belly of the whale. It was done.

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

In a swirl around him, he didn't know whether he was going to be delivered from that problem. He didn't know what was going to happen, but he knew one thing. And that was there was light at the end of the tunnel because he believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what did he do? Allah

00:05:21--> 00:05:28

says that he is salat wa salam from the darkness of the belly of the whale. He says.

00:05:36--> 00:06:09

Most definitely, you are the only one who is worthy of worship. You are the only God worthy of worship. He called out to the being that was the only being that could have helped him at that time. So when I came in, he told me no worries. II mean, Glory be to You indeed I was from amongst those who had oppressed. And Allah Subhana Allah says immediately, first day job in a move and Jaina Amina,

00:06:10--> 00:06:26

so we responded to him and we removed him from the darkness. Fat in the Arabic language means lit tacky, it means immediately we responded to Eunice Allahu Salatu was Salam. And you know what is so interesting about this

00:06:27--> 00:06:49

had Yunus Allahu Salatu was salam, not being from amongst those who praised the loss of Canada who are either in the belly of the whale, then Allah horrible is that he was jealous would have kept him way until the day he was resurrected. He says fella hula

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

Can anyone who said

00:06:54--> 00:07:44

about Tony levy savvy about Tony de la Amoeba swoon, that if he Yunus was not from amongst those who Glorified Allah subhanho wa Taala, then he would have remained in the belly of the whale until the day of piano, they are those from amongst us, who will not heed and not take a lesson from this, they will not learn they will continue with their ways and in their ways. Do you know what, even when the tunnel has ended for other people, they have come out at the other side, they can now they are in the bright sunshine, you will remain within your darkness. Why? Because you did not hold on to the rope of Allah Subhana who was to Allah when it was the chance for you to do so. So now is the

00:07:44--> 00:07:53

chance for us to hold on to the rope of Allah subhana wa tada and that is the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:56--> 00:08:02

Allah horrible is that he will Jelena says yeah you levina

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

mo su li qu, ln email matching.

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

Una de la Khun wala

00:08:19--> 00:09:14

he or you who have believed, believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala have his consciousness and believe in His Messenger, he will grant you double fold of his Allah and he will grant you a light with which you will you will walk with which you will walk while the Lakhan guru back home and he will forgive you your sins. What law more affordable Rahim. And indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving and most merciful. The light of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be given to those who have consciousness of him. They understand that ultimately, my maker is in charge here. He knows what is going on in our lives. He knows the problems that we are in. All I have to do is raise my hands to

00:09:14--> 00:09:59

Him and He will protect me he will save me he will kill him. You see that we are eligible salatu salam, they understood this. And this is why even Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he did not know what is what had happened to him he was not almost certain as to what was going on. And the ark Angel gibreel came down to him. He was worried that what is going on? And he came down to his wife and said what Lucha sheet what NFC I was fearing for myself. I didn't know what was happening, what was going to happen to me whether I was going to live or die. Imagine seeing a creature who's when one of his wings

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

His from one horizon to the next. And all of a sudden he's in front of you, and you see him, he became fearful for his life. So hudy jehadi Allah and he tells him can lower la la musica la vida, most definitely Allah subhanho wa Taala will not leave you, He will not abandon you. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood that Allah subhanho wa Taala would deliver him from his problems from his difficulties from his hardships. This is the lifeline that is being thrown to us. It is the very Lifeline that went to the MBR hemos Salatu was Salam. And it is the very Lifeline that was given to Musa alayhi salatu was salam, Isa Salatu was salam, and all of the ambia alayhi wa

00:10:50--> 00:11:23

Salatu was Salam. So it is one light from one source, and that is Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is granting us the chance to repent and to turn to Him and to look for the light in him. Remember, one thing dear brothers and sisters in Islam in these times do are is one of the most powerful weapons that we have one of the most powerful weapons against any disease against any difficulty, calamity hardship, Allah horrible is that he says,

00:11:24--> 00:11:28

well, either Salah kariba, d, d.

00:11:30--> 00:11:42

d. d, and when my worship is my worship has asked you all Mohammed about me, then I am near huji Buddha,

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

either

00:11:45--> 00:12:00

I respond to the Torah of a person who calls out to me, fellas ijebu Li, Nino de la la holmium shudong. So let them respond to me. And

00:12:01--> 00:12:53

while you may know me and believe in me so that they may attain guidance. Remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala is nearer and closer to you than your juggler vein. You see how close this juggler very nice, Allah subhana wa Taala is closer to you than that. If he wants to take you in a split moment you will be taken if he wants to grant you life, he will grant you life. So turn to that being in whom your life is in his control in his hands. His is your life. turn to Him and He will save you boosah lashari are the old man who mentioned that we went with a sort of loss on a lover I think he was setting them on a journey. So that people began to shout out with that wheel. And they

00:12:53--> 00:13:46

began to shout out with Dora. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something very interesting in that war Allah and fusi Come in, come lay set their own awesome whatever ebba come down, hold yourselves back. For indeed you are not calling out to he who is dumb? No, neither are you calling out to he who is absent in Sedona semi annual kariba wahoo Mr. Kuhn, indeed you are calling out to he who is all hearing and he is near. And he is with you. Meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala knows exactly what you are going through, and he hears you, you don't need to shout out and loud for Allah subhanho wa Taala to hear you, you could be whispering into the earth, and he who is

00:13:46--> 00:14:09

above the heavens will respond to you. So make sure when you make that drop, when you call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala then call in the manner that he wants you to call out to Him, praise Him, praise Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then raise your hands. La ilaha illa Anta suha in the consuming of aalameen.

00:14:10--> 00:14:48

Lastly, I'd like to draw our attention to something very interesting and that is that this may actually be good, all together for humanity at large in the greater picture. Yes, when we take a look at it, it is something that in our eyes, we know that it is not good, we know that there is disease spreading people are dying, that is not something good, but in the grand scheme of things, they may there is a plan of a loss of kind of water. And this is why he says whereas

00:14:51--> 00:14:56

Kamui wiaa, Giada lofi,

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

Kathy Ella, and indeed you

00:15:00--> 00:15:51

May despise something yet Allah subhana wa tada has placed a lot of goodness in it. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed a lot of goodness in it. So don't think that this situation is definitely all bad and there is nothing good that is going to come out of it. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is there for us. And as long as we placed our trust in Him, and we believe in Him, He will protect us, He will guide us and He will deliver us from this problem. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect us and to guide us and to cure our yield and to raise us with the MBR addiction was Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean, on some level selama OVA and

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

then Amina Mohammed. He also
