Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah while Ali was

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:19--> 00:00:26

come to you from Western prayer. And I just wanted to share

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

a brief

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

reminder with all of us

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

in these very, very trying and difficult times,

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

during the many who are asking

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

about this calamity

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

that has befallen all of us.

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

They're asking,

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

Is this a punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala or not.

00:00:55--> 00:00:59

And so what we're finding is two extremes.

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

One group of people who are seeing that it is impossible for us to attribute to Allah, that he is punishing us through this pandemic.

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

And we're not allowed to say that Allah subhanho wa Taala is punishing

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

people to such a calamity.

00:01:22--> 00:01:26

And other extreme are those who say that

00:01:28--> 00:01:34

this disease is a punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala for every single person

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

who is infected by

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

and so either you have this extreme or unhealthy.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

And so what we say regarding this is that there's no doubt

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

that if we were to examine the area to look around,

00:01:52--> 00:02:02

and the Mini ahadeeth, we will come to the conclusion that Allah subhanho wa Taala does send such commodities as a punishment for the people.

00:02:04--> 00:02:10

And this is, we say, in general, it's a communal punishment from Allah Subhana Allah,

00:02:11--> 00:02:26

we the Stories of the Prophets, read the various stories either in the Quran or the Sunnah, we find that Allah subhanahu Attallah sends natural disasters, as a way of punishing the people.

00:02:27--> 00:02:40

And the spread of disease is also an example. Allah subhanahu wa taala used the plate incentive on winning this war II. And there are other examples as well.

00:02:41--> 00:03:07

This is in the general sense. So what we are seeing, and what we are going through is a punishment from Allah subhana wa Tada for all of for all of humanity. And the reason for ALLAH SubhanA punishing, is there are many reasons behind it. Among these reasons, is our sins, the spread of corruption, the spread of immorality,

00:03:08--> 00:03:12

not enjoying the good forbidding the evil, and so on. So

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

this is on the one. On the other hand,

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

if we were to look at

00:03:20--> 00:03:26

this calamity, on the individual level, we see that here, it differs.

00:03:27--> 00:03:39

And so here, it could either be a punishment from Allah for that particular individual, or it could be a form of Allah showing mercy to that person.

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

And the proof for this, I should have

00:03:44--> 00:03:58

asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the plague. And so he said, that it was a punishment that was part of what God would sin on some people, or whoever you will.

00:04:00--> 00:04:45

But it is a mercy for the believer. So any believer who is infected by this disease, it is a form of mercy from Allah subhana wa, tada. You may be wondering, how could it be a form of mercy? How could it be something good for the person, their suffering involved, there's pain involved. And so here, now we go to a different topic. And that is, you know why there's a loss of carnivores that are now suffering for his wretched servings for his believers. And there are many reasons behind that, that the scholars of Islam are it's wait. We're not going to get into that. But the point is, that

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

this calamity, in this pandemic, it is a punishment from Allah subhana wa Bucha. But when it comes to the believers, when it comes to the believers, it's something good for them.

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

was apparent of which Island afflict them with these kinds of calamities for their own good. And that can be looked at through a variety of different ways.

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

If you have been afflicted with a calamity, whether it is whether it is being infected by this disease

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

or having a loved one, to be infected with it, and dying from it,

00:05:31--> 00:05:31


00:05:33--> 00:05:45

whether it be the effects of this pandemic, like the economic downfall, and maybe you've lost your job is a calamity. And so on. It's over.

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


00:05:48--> 00:05:49

this calamity

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

has gotten you closer to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

This is Allah's mercy upon him.

00:05:59--> 00:06:17

Allah subhanahu wa Tada afflicted you with this calamity, for your own good, so that now you wake up. You wake up from your heedlessness and I'll turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. And so if we come out of this pandemic, and out of this calamity,

00:06:19--> 00:06:23

being closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala rectifying our waves,

00:06:24--> 00:06:37

then it was something good for us. But if we remain upon our old wave waves, and we haven't changed them, it was a punishment from Allah subhana wa Bucha.

00:06:39--> 00:07:13

And so this is how your work can take advantage balanced approach to this issue. And Allah knows best we ask ALLAH SubhanA more data to keep us all safe and sound and healthy, in the best of health and Amen. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to cure those among the believers who have been afflicted with this disease and to accept as Shahadat those who have passed away from it. We ask Allah subhana wa Montana to allow us to witness the month of Ramadan, in

00:07:15--> 00:07:27

good health, we ask Allah subhana wa to once again open the doors of his of his houses or the massages for the month of Ramadan. Also what will

00:07:30--> 00:07:33

be celebrated sleep if you
