lives in Hawaii,

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

As we go through these very, very difficult times

00:01:49--> 00:01:50


00:01:52--> 00:01:57

this crisis and this pandemic is coming closer to home,

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

where some of us are hearing of friends or relatives

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

who are becoming infected by the virus,

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

or if we are not infected by it,

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

then it is affecting us

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

in one way or the other.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

And so the economy is going down.

00:02:27--> 00:02:32

And 1000s hundreds of 1000s of people are losing their jobs.

00:02:34--> 00:02:42

And so, all of this is a catastrophe. It is a calamity. It is a trial.

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

And so what we need in times like this

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

is to be reminded

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

on how to deal with calamities

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

when they descend.

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

00:03:14--> 00:03:17

in these iottie Surah Al Baqarah.

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

Allah mentions three calamities that he will make us to face in this dunya

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

and he gave us three ways of dealing with them.

00:03:34--> 00:03:40

And he promised three rewards for those who are successful

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

in dealing with these calamities.

00:03:48--> 00:03:57

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, addressing the believers Yeah, are you Hello lady in a monastery Louie sodbury wasana

bringing our attention to the concept of patients whether she has to have been and give glad tidings to who to those who remain patient.

00:06:27--> 00:06:30

Who are they? They are those

00:06:31--> 00:06:35

who when they are faced with a calamity

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

when a catastrophe strikes them

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

what do they do?

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

are the blessing, the Salawat and the prayers of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

and his mercy

00:07:29--> 00:07:33

and they are those who are truly guided.

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

what we find here in these

00:07:45--> 00:07:51

are three calamities that a lot tests as human beings with in this dunya

00:07:55--> 00:07:56


00:07:59--> 00:08:01

which comes in the form of feminine

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

when there is no food

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

and people they die of hunger.

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

This is a calamity.

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

It is a catastrophe.

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

The second

00:08:20--> 00:08:21


00:08:23--> 00:08:24

fear of many things.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

Fear of our enemies.

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

Fear and frenzy and panic

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

over a small, tiny virus that we can't even see with our eyes.

00:08:42--> 00:08:45

Why? Why the fear why the panic

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

because it's deadly.

00:08:49--> 00:08:52

Because it can transfer without us even knowing.

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

And so we're afraid.

00:08:56--> 00:08:56


00:08:58--> 00:09:01

and the third Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

taking away certain essential things.

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

A decrease.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

a decrease in wealth.

00:09:16--> 00:09:17


00:09:19--> 00:09:20

losing your job.

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

The economy going down

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

and a decrease in line.

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

people dying every day.

00:09:35--> 00:09:42

your loved one. Those you know and those you don't know. Every single day we are hearing of this many people dying

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

hundreds of 1000s of people in one day from this virus

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

and a decrease in crops.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Disaster yesterday

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

That hit the agricultural industry.

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

So these are three things that Allah subhanahu wa tada tells us

00:10:11--> 00:10:20

that he will make us human beings to face in this dunya it's inevitable, it will happen one way or the other.

00:10:21--> 00:10:30

And then Allah Subhana Allah tells us what to do, tells us how to deal in such times. And so in the very first

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to seek help

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

through the first

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

is patient.

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

Is there even the surgery

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

patient in these difficult times?

00:10:51--> 00:11:05

And then our tells us that he is with those who are patient, and then Oh Allah subhanahu attallah commands is profit. Well, this sheet is savarin give glad tidings to those who patiently endure such tough times.

00:11:07--> 00:11:07


00:11:09--> 00:11:11

is an act of the heart.

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

It is

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

a worship of the heart.

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

How about our tongue

00:11:26--> 00:11:33

callooh in alila, he were in Elijah Raji rune, those who say this Vicar

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

when a calamity befalls them.

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

And so right away,

00:11:41--> 00:11:48

their tongues are remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. In Allah, we're in Isla de Raja.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

And the third

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

is the aim of this summary was

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

that they seek help.

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

Through assala

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

through prayer,

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do

00:12:11--> 00:12:19

whenever something would bother him, whenever something would worry him right away, he would turn to Salah.

00:12:21--> 00:12:21

And so law

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

is an act of the body.

00:12:27--> 00:12:38

So here we have three things that turn to Allah Subhana, who etana at the time of distress, the heart, through patience, the tongue through liquor,

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

and the body, with its movements,

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

with the tongue and with the heart through a solid.

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

What is the reward, three things Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned.

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

They are those upon whom

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

Allah sends his son Allah.

00:13:01--> 00:13:08

Allah mentions these people, among the inhabitants of Jenna, or the inhabitants of the heavens.

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

The angels a lot praises these people among the angels.

00:13:18--> 00:13:23

And Allah sends down his mercy upon these people.

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

What we are eager to do, and Allah tells us that they are the rightly guided,

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

they receive the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

through such tough times when others are lost, or in a state of confusion

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

in a state of panic.

00:13:49--> 00:13:54

And so my dear brothers and sisters, when it comes

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

to these great trials and tests and calamities, that are loss of Hannah, who attalla makes us to face,

00:14:04--> 00:14:10

such pandemics in which everyone is affected one way or the other.

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

But not everyone

00:14:16--> 00:14:22

is at the same level in terms of dealing with these calamities.

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

And so everyone is in a different state.

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

If you look at him, he mentioned

00:14:33--> 00:14:40

there are when it comes to the calamities that Allah makes us to face that a human being has no way to avoid.

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

He says

00:14:44--> 00:14:53

that the people in such calamities are four different levels for different states.

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

The first

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

is the state of impatient

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

Those who are impatient.

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

They can't handle the trial the test,

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

you find them always complaining

00:15:12--> 00:15:13


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


00:15:16--> 00:15:17

The second

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

are those who are patients

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

they ride through such turbulent times, patiently

00:15:31--> 00:15:36

persevering, enduring with patience as a law tells us in these ions.

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

But then after that you have two more levels.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

He says, The third level

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

is the level of not only being patient,

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

but after being patient,

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

to be satisfied, to be content to be happy,

00:15:59--> 00:16:02

over what Allah Subhana who God has decreed.

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

And then the fourth

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

the fourth level,

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

is the level

00:16:13--> 00:16:19

of those who have reached the highest level with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

Those who are not only patient

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

and not only satisfied at the Kaaba and decoder of Allah,

00:16:29--> 00:16:32

but those who after all of that

00:16:34--> 00:16:37

they are then grateful to Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

the level of gratitude

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

where they danke Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

for this calamity, that he made them go through

00:16:52--> 00:16:57

how can you think of Allah subhanho wa Taala over a calamity

00:16:58--> 00:17:03

over a disaster. This is unimaginable for most people.

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

But it is imaginable for those

00:17:10--> 00:17:29

whose hearts are connected to Allah subhana wa Tada. Those who know that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not decree for his righteous leaves and for the believers, except what is best for them, except what is in their best interests.

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

So the tackle off for that.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:17:39--> 00:17:39


00:17:41--> 00:17:45

are the four levels We ask Allah Subhana who were to Allah

00:17:46--> 00:18:15

to make us from among those who are not only patient, but also those who are satisfied and content with the color of Allah. And then those who after that, thank Allah subhanho wa Taala and are grateful to him so Hannah who attalla aku kolyada we're still feudal law highly welcome.

mario brothers and sisters

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

who are joining us,

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

from your home

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

wherever you may be

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

the calamities that are loss of health

00:20:00--> 00:20:00


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

tests us with

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

whether it be

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

illness or disease,

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

whether it be death,

00:20:18--> 00:20:19


00:20:20--> 00:20:21

someone who is beloved to you,

00:20:23--> 00:20:26

whether it be a financial crisis in your life,

00:20:27--> 00:20:31

whether it be you being laid off, not having a job,

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

whatever the calamity is,

00:20:37--> 00:20:46

we need to help ourselves to bear and to endure patiently through such calamities.

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

And so, we spoke about the importance of Saba

00:20:51--> 00:20:53

the importance of patience.

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

But the question is, how

00:20:58--> 00:21:03

do we achieve and attain patience through such a difficult time?

00:21:06--> 00:21:07


00:21:10--> 00:21:11

let us

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

ponder over those are yachts in Surah Al Baqarah.

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

And that Vicar

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

that is said, when a calamity strikes,

00:21:26--> 00:21:30

what will help you to patiently endure in such difficult times,

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

is by pondering over those words.

00:21:36--> 00:21:52

Many of us have memorized it. When we hear of someone passing away, immediately we say in alila, we're in an era urology room. But how many of us have ever talked ourselves? Instead, let me think about what these words mean.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

How many of us have pondered over these words?

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

In lilla?

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

When we say this, what we are basically saying is that everything

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

in this world,

00:22:13--> 00:22:20

no matter what it is, no matter how close it is to us, it doesn't belong to us.

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

But rather, it belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:22:26--> 00:22:31

And so, if you lose your mother, your father, your son, or your daughter,

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

or whoever you lose,

00:22:37--> 00:22:37

then remember that

00:22:39--> 00:22:39


00:22:41--> 00:22:48

that they never belonged to you to begin with, but rather, they belong to Allah Subhana who went to Hana

00:22:49--> 00:22:56

and then ponder over in what in LA he Raji rune, and to Him we are returning

00:22:58--> 00:23:06

because we all belong to Allah, therefore we are all returning back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

So eventually, our time is coming.

00:23:11--> 00:23:15

All of us whether it be me or whether it be you,

00:23:16--> 00:23:18

your time is coming.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

And we're all going back to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

kulu and Holly have

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

everything upon the surface of this earth

00:23:33--> 00:23:45

is going to come and cease to exist. Why because Bekaa was robbed because it will be crumb and only Allah subhanahu wa tada is that ever living?

00:23:46--> 00:23:46


00:23:51--> 00:23:58

one of our pillars of belief, and he man is to believe and I'll come out with

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

the good and the bad of it.

00:24:04--> 00:24:11

And so we need to read juveniles and renew our E man. You know, cover will cover.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

If you're having a difficult time dealing with this calamity.

00:24:21--> 00:24:24

Then renew your E man. You know cover will cover

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

and remember

00:24:30--> 00:24:38

that whatever Allah has decreed, it will happen, and you could not have done anything to avoid it.

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

rather the Allahu Akbar

00:24:49--> 00:24:53

that if Allah has decreed any good for you

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

then even if the entire world

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

The jinn and mankind were to come together to find a way to remove that good from you, they would never be able to do. And likewise, if Allah has decreed a calamity for you,

00:25:16--> 00:25:42

they no matter what if the entire world its Jin and its human beings were to come together to devise a plan to find a way to remove that calamity from you, they will never, ever be able to do it. Why? Because everything is in the hands of a loss of Hannah who were to Hannah. Once a while has decreed it, it is bound to happen, and no one

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

can avoid it.

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

And so if

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

you could have saved a life

00:25:53--> 00:25:56

if Allah has decreed for that life not to be saved

00:25:58--> 00:26:04

then it's not in my hands. Nor is it in your hands. Nor is it in the hands

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

of the best doctors in this world.

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

For either

00:26:12--> 00:26:15

what until he no he didn't. rune

00:26:16--> 00:26:20

Sakuraba comm What are killer two three rune

00:26:22--> 00:26:30

fellow Hola, como como de Nene, Taraji Runa. In kuntum saw the theme when you're seeing

00:26:33--> 00:26:39

the person on his deathbed and you see the soul about to leave the body.

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

Go ahead and prevent it.

00:26:44--> 00:26:49

If you are truthful, then prevent it. Why don't you stop him from dying.

00:26:51--> 00:26:52


00:26:53--> 00:26:54

it is in the hands of a lot.

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

It is not even in the hands of the best hospitals in this world.

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

Or the best machines or the best ventilator.

00:27:08--> 00:27:16

Even if they made 1000 or 100,000 or a million ventilators, if Allah has decreed

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

for your time to come,

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

no ventilator no machine, no doctor

00:27:24--> 00:27:30

will be able to save you from the appointed decree of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:27:32--> 00:27:32


00:27:36--> 00:27:37


00:27:39--> 00:27:43

that whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala takes away from you.

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

Whether it be the life of someone,

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

whether it be your job,

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

whether it be

00:27:56--> 00:28:00

wealth, property, crops,

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

whatever it be that a lot takes away from you.

00:28:06--> 00:28:09

Remember, that if you are a believer,

00:28:12--> 00:28:19

and you endure patiently, and you're satisfied with the culture of Allah subhanho wa Taala then remember

00:28:21--> 00:28:26

that Allah subhanahu, WA tada does not take anything away from us.

00:28:28--> 00:28:34

Except because he wants to replace it with something which is far better.

00:28:38--> 00:28:43

Never does a lot take away something that is beloved to his beloved slaves who he loves.

00:28:45--> 00:28:50

He doesn't want them to go into misery. He doesn't want evil for you, oh slave of Allah.

00:28:52--> 00:28:54

But rather, he wants Good for you.

00:28:57--> 00:29:06

And that's because we may see things a certain way. We may see things as being evil, evil,

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

as being 100% suffering.

00:29:11--> 00:29:20

But in the eyes of Allah, there is no such thing as pure evil as 100% evil from all angles from all perspectives.

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

And Takahashi

00:29:29--> 00:29:30

perhaps you may dislike something

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

but there is good in it for you.

00:29:37--> 00:29:40

And that's because Allah subhanho wa Taala is a curried

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

he is the most generous one.

00:29:45--> 00:29:56

And he doesn't take away thing, but rather he gives. And so if Allah has taken away something from you, no matter how beloved it was to you, and to your heart,

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

then be rest assured

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala is replacing it with something which is far better whether you see it right now, or you see it tomorrow, or you never see it in your life.

00:30:12--> 00:30:12

It is there.

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

And we have many, many examples of this.

00:30:20--> 00:30:25

We have many examples of this from the lives of the Sahaba

00:30:26--> 00:30:31

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Take the example of ohm selama

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

she said from the Allahu Allah

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

that no one is tested with a calamity.

00:30:48--> 00:30:58

And then beers patiently seeing in Allah he were in the room, except that Allah subhanahu wa tada replied, replaces what he lost with something better.

00:31:00--> 00:31:01

She says,

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

and then

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

her beloved husband

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

ended up passing away.

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

So she said,

00:31:17--> 00:31:23

How is it possible for me to say these words, and to believe

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

that Allah will replace someone better for me than Abu Salah.

00:31:29--> 00:31:30

But she said,

00:31:31--> 00:31:36

I said it anyways, because I believed in the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:31:40--> 00:31:40

And then,

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

soon after that,

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

of loss of Hannah, who wattana blessed her

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

with someone far better than abou cinema.

00:31:51--> 00:31:55

And that was the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he ended up marrying her.

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

Take the example of that woman

00:32:00--> 00:32:03

who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:32:06--> 00:32:07


00:32:09--> 00:32:13

of this disease that she had epilepsy.

00:32:14--> 00:32:17

And so she said, O Messenger of Allah,

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

I have this problem. And when I go into my fix,

00:32:24--> 00:32:27

some of my IRA becomes exposed, my hijab comes off.

00:32:28--> 00:32:32

So please pray to Allah to cure me from this illness.

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

And so what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say?

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

He said, If you wish I could do that.

00:32:41--> 00:32:46

If you want me to, I could pray to Allah to cure you of this illness.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

But if you want,

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

I could pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:32:54--> 00:33:03

That if you patiently persevere through this calamity, then for you is gender.

00:33:06--> 00:33:11

for you is gender, you are guaranteed gender, as long as you are patient

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

and socially accepted.

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

She accepted.

00:33:18--> 00:33:24

And then she said, Oh, yeah, yeah. Rasulullah at least pray to Allah, that I don't become exposed.

00:33:27--> 00:33:36

And so these are examples of how Allah subhanahu wa tada through calamities, through difficulty.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

And by taking away things from us,

00:33:42--> 00:33:49

He replaces it with things which are far better, and there is no better reward than the reward of the

00:33:51--> 00:33:52


00:33:54--> 00:33:58

remind yourself of what the prophets and the messengers went through.

00:34:01--> 00:34:06

Because as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, answering the question,

00:34:08--> 00:34:20

or messenger of Allah, Who are those who go through the most difficulties, who are those who go through the worst trials and kilometers.

00:34:21--> 00:34:30

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, the prophets and the messengers, and then those who are closest to them fell

00:34:31--> 00:34:37

and fell, fell and fell, those who are closest to them in their righteousness,

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

in their piety,

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

in their taqwa

00:34:43--> 00:34:47

and so when we read the lives of the prophets,

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

we learn

00:34:51--> 00:34:58

how to patiently persevere through difficulty, through trial through calamity

00:34:59--> 00:35:00


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


00:35:01--> 00:35:02


00:35:03--> 00:35:25

and remind yourself of the reward for those who patiently persevere, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in many different hobbies, the rewards for those who when trial and difficulty hit them, they are patient.

00:35:27--> 00:35:33

Firstly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when you read the law, ob hiren you said men,

00:35:35--> 00:35:36


00:35:37--> 00:35:38

if Allah ever wants Good for you,

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

that he makes you to go through difficulty.

00:35:44--> 00:35:48

Secondly, remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:35:49--> 00:35:51

that no fatigue

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

touches the surface.

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

No disease,

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

inflicts the servant.

00:36:01--> 00:36:06

no sorrow, no sadness, no injury.

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

No distress falls the believer.

00:36:12--> 00:36:21

None of that befalls the believer, even if it be a thorn that pricks you. And you are bothered by this small Thor.

00:36:22--> 00:36:28

Except that Allah subhanho wa Taala through all of these difficulties and hardships.

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

He expiate your seniors,

00:36:34--> 00:36:36

he erases your sins.

00:36:37--> 00:36:42

And so these difficult times are a time for us to reflect over that.

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

That whether it be an illness,

00:36:47--> 00:36:59

whether it be losing our jobs, whatever it be, if it is a calamity from Allah subhanahu wa tada and we are patient.

00:37:00--> 00:37:07

Then Allah subhanahu wa taala through that is cleansing us of our centers.

00:37:08--> 00:37:24

We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to make us from among those who are patient through these difficult times. We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to keep each and every single one of us protected

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

and healthy.

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

us and our loved ones, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

to remove

00:37:36--> 00:37:47

this pandemic and to remove from us these calamities, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring us together once again

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

in the houses of Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:37:56--> 00:38:18

to accept those who has passed away from this disease as shuhada as martyrs with him so Hannah who attallah and we ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to bring Shiva to bring a cure to those who are ill
