00:00:23--> 00:00:35

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah ala Alihi, wa Sahbihi Ultramarine and ADAD, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

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

We're coming live to you.

00:00:40--> 00:00:44

From Mr. Double Herrera, even though there's no one here.

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

It's a very, very sad day for many of our communities.

00:00:52--> 00:01:08

In fact, for many of our Muslim countries as well, where entire masajid have basically shut down and they're no longer having Salah to Gemma and Salah to Juma India.

00:01:10--> 00:01:23

And so this reminds us of many things. And I just wanted to, over the next few minutes, just share a few a few pieces of advice for all of us on how to cope

00:01:24--> 00:01:30

with our current situation, how to deal with it. First of all,

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

look at how

00:01:34--> 00:01:35


00:01:37--> 00:01:39

nations and

00:01:40--> 00:01:47

powerful people and nations have become humiliated and subjugated by something so small and tiny.

00:01:48--> 00:02:01

A virus that cannot even be seen by the naked eye has brought the entire world to a halt. What does that show us? It shows us that no matter how powerful you are,

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

no matter who you are,

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

you are tiny

00:02:08--> 00:02:19

in the grand scheme of things in the sight of Allah subhanahu wa taala and what Allah is doing is that he's showing us that he SubhanaHu Attallah is the only one who's in control of everything.

00:02:21--> 00:02:35

And so, look at how entire markets have crashed, the economy has gone down. People are afraid to leave home they're not allowed to leave their home and their countries

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

all fearing what

00:02:38--> 00:02:53

not fearing a natural disaster or an earthquake or a war even but something small and tiny like this one may Allah Ma Jun Arabica Illa who knows the soldiers of your Lord except Allah.

00:02:56--> 00:03:04

In times like this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us a very very beautiful piece of advice.

00:03:06--> 00:03:11

And so he said a laborer to fill horridge Cal Hijra to realize

00:03:12--> 00:03:19

that a bad in catastrophic times times a fitna like these

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

is like making Hijra to me.

00:03:23--> 00:03:33

Meaning in the reward of very bad in times like this, in times like this, the reward of a bad is so great.

00:03:37--> 00:03:42

In these times, in these times when everyone is afraid,

00:03:44--> 00:04:04

and everyone is watching the news, everyone is following different things that are going on around them. It is in times like this, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advise us to be busy in our time, in getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the IBA of Allah subhanahu wa taharah

00:04:05--> 00:04:14

it's not about this epidemic and this pandemic, coming to an end, that will happen. There's no doubt that that will happen.

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

Because we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala bringing relief

00:04:21--> 00:04:33

to the world and ending this catastrophe. It's not about ending or when it will end, but rather it's about what will your state be when it comes to an end?

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

Has this event gotten you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

or are you the way you were before?

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

And so it's in times like this that Allah subhanho wa Taala is testing us.

00:04:49--> 00:04:53

It's in times like this that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to turn to Him

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

and turning to Allah means that we wish

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

with him, and that we do different kinds of acts of very bad for him subhanho wa Taala whether it be personal activity badda, Salah, vicar fasting, or whether it be helping others, extending your good and your help to others, all of this comes comes under a bad and so now is a time for a better and getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking the forgiveness of Allah turning to Allah in repentance, now is not the time to be busying ourselves with following what's going on in the news, because whatever is happening,

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

it's going to continue to happen

00:05:45--> 00:05:56

and the stories that we're following, they're not going to ever stop. And so when are you going to get time to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a bad

00:05:58--> 00:06:08

one last point that I wanted to mention here, as most of our masajid have shut down.

00:06:09--> 00:06:17

And many of us when we heard that, you know my messenger is closing down, it was

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

a very, very sorrowful moment for them.

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

And that is because

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

for such people, they used to pray Salah to Jana regularly and these to come to the masjid regularly.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

And so it's very difficult for such people.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

But remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

promised the one

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

who has to miss

00:06:51--> 00:06:58

coming to the masjid and salatu Jamar, he has to miss it because of a sickness or because he traveled.

00:06:59--> 00:07:31

The prophet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there's such a person while he is away, and he's traveling or he's sick, then he gets the reward for the his his reward does not diminish. So be rest assured of the reward of Allah subhanahu Attallah you are not missing salatu Jana in the masjid because of your whims and your desires, like other people who were doing so they were missing Serato Jamara before all of this happened.

00:07:32--> 00:07:40

And so that's why for them, they don't feel what you feel a pain. And so rest assured that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not

00:07:42--> 00:07:48

allow your war to go to waste. And finally, concerning salatu Jamal, even though

00:07:49--> 00:08:33

we are not praying in many of our masajid we have to make sure that we do pray wherever we are, whoever we happen to be with in these days. And so if you're at home, don't abandon salatu. Jana, pray your pray with your family members. Pray have your neighbors come over or whoever else is around, don't neglect this symbol of our deen and so, if you can pre salatu Joomla wherever you are, and many people are also asking about Joomla The same applies to Joomla. Because although the scholars different concerning what number is required, for Salah to Joomla

00:08:34--> 00:08:49

the correct opinion in sha Allah is that so how to Joomla is valid with three people and above. So wherever you are, if you happen if you happen to have a group of people

00:08:50--> 00:09:01

then pray Salah to Joomla and have somebody to give the hook but there's nothing wrong with that. It doesn't have to be in the masjid. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to

00:09:03--> 00:09:37

bring relief to this owner and to protect all of us and our family members from every illness and from every disease. And we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to allow us to witness Ramadan while we are all in a state of Eman and health. And while our masajid are all open in the Hollywood Erica will call the rally was Allah Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad while early he was certainly he dramatic
