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

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Muslim hammertoes ally sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just leaving a theater from abajo. Nevertheless, it is

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

this beautiful grass that is behind me. I don't know if you can see it, but I want to show the see this is the the way the leaf is it's got these white stripes on the leaf. This edge is extremely sharp, it's like a knife. It's red, it has minute serrations. And it can cut like a knife. If you run your hand over it, you're gone. And this particular

00:00:45--> 00:00:48

bush of glass, if I can call it that

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

is if I'm not mistaken, my friend told me it's about 30 or 40 years old. So this grass is old. And it's like this. And in this is in.

00:01:01--> 00:01:03

I'm in wilbraham in,

00:01:04--> 00:01:09

in Massachusetts. So it gets extremely, extremely cold here in the winters

00:01:10--> 00:01:29

that have been done in temperatures. And we definitely go to minus 20 routinely, San Diego even even more than that. Yet this grass survives is one of the great survival stories of the creation of Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah He redeems one labmd.

00:01:30--> 00:02:08

So I thought, let me show this graph students you can see in the picture Also, if you look, you can see these beautiful stripes on the grass. It's not just the sun. But this is actual white coloring on the grass. And why it has that and so on. I really don't know what it's very beautiful to see. We are in the session of the lessons from the MBM Salaam in the beautiful life of Ibrahim alayhi salam. And we are today on the third part of that which is his unquestioning obedience

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

to Allah subhanaw taala. Now one of the

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

one of the things that religion is blamed, and religious people are

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

unjustly blamed and maligned for his for being brainless for being stupid.

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

Karl Marx called religion opiate of the masses. He said, it's like a drug.

00:02:36--> 00:02:44

And people believe blindly, without thinking without any data without any evidence.

00:02:46--> 00:03:36

They just believe, and then they obey, again blindly. Now, I'm not saying that none of that is true. It is true. In many cases, people do believe blindly, people do believe, without any evidence without any data. And that's how there are so many superstitions that go around in the world, in the name of religion. So people religious people have got a bad rap. And the bad rap that they've got is not entirely undeserved. I mean, I'm sorry to say that, but that is also reality. It's not entirely undeserved. Some of that bad rap is, is true. But this is not Islam. This is not Islam. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned is very clearly in the Quran many, many times. Allah subhanaw taala told us

00:03:36--> 00:03:44

to think he told us to reflect, he told us to look at his signs, look at his creation, I'm showing you one of them.

00:03:45--> 00:04:02

Before which is sitting in this grass behind me, this is a creation of Allah subhanaw taala reflect on this thing and say, why is this grass this way? Why is it colored like this? And if this coloring is the best thing for grasses, then why is not every grass color like that? Because if

00:04:03--> 00:04:50

if we say that things evolve in a way where what is best for survival is what remains and what is not so good dies away, then there really should not be any variety of creation in the world. Right? By that logic, because only the best will survive. So even if you started off, and obviously if that whole thing is not logical, because evolution also talks about starting from a very basic form to becoming more and more complex and complex. And if that is the case, then how do we explain the fact of so much variety because if only the best, the best, obviously means you're saying that there's only one thing which can be the best, you know, by definition, that's what best is that and then and

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

that the rest of it dies off. Then why is there any variety at all right? So it's something to for us to think about.

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

Reflect on that. Blind belief is not religion. Whereas Islam promotes belief with thought, belief with knowledge. Islam promotes belief with complete understanding. The deeper the understanding, the better the knowledge, the stronger the belief. Remember, nobody understood or can understand the greatness and glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala better than his prophets better than the MBR limosa They are the ones who know Allah subhanaw taala the best and the closest, and who have a connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is unlike that of any other human being on the face of the earth. These are the people who receive what word directly from Allah subhanaw taala in

00:05:58--> 00:06:41

a variety of ways. Some of them spoke to him directly, some of them, Allah subhanaw taala showed his signs in different ways. Some of them received the word of Allah subhanaw taala through the agency of gra salam, some of them received the word of Allah subhanaw taala through other means, which Allah knows best. So these are the people the unbelievers allow other people who know Allah subhanho wa Taala the best there's no one who can say that he knows Allah better than than a De La Silla. And these were the people who are also the most obedient to Allah subhanaw taala there is no one more obedient than than to be. Right. And how is that obedience? Is that obedience, blind obedience

00:06:41--> 00:07:15

without knowing did they have no knowledge of we are saying already, that they had the best knowledge they had the most knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they also that that knowledge of Allah, produced in them obedience to Allah subhanaw taala not the opposite, not disobedience, the knowledge produced obedience to Allah subhanaw taala so this is the thing to understand in Islam. Obedience is the product of knowledge. It is not the product of ignorance, obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala is not superstition. It is not some

00:07:16--> 00:07:35

unsubstantiated belief that comes out of you know what my forefathers used to do or anything like that. It is the understanding, it is the knowledge it is the experience of Allah subhanaw taala in our lives, for the better we know Allah, the more we

00:07:36--> 00:08:05

obey Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the purpose of knowledge is to know so that we can obey laws of matter that I mentioned this question of unquestioning obedience, the the the issue of unquestioning obedience rather baccara with respect to eventually Salaam whose life we are trying to study Allah said is cada la hora boo Aslam Allah Aslam. To me, it is due to Allah. Allah said, when is Rob said to him Submit.

00:08:06--> 00:08:23

He said I have submitted to the rub of the alamy to the Creator, the Sustainer, the maintainer of the protector of everything that he has created. When he said submit being meaning become Muslim meaning be a Muslim, meaning submit to the will of Allah.

00:08:24--> 00:08:32

He said I have submitted he didn't even say I will submit he said I have submitted Karla Aslam to

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

calahorra was named Carla slim to

00:08:37--> 00:08:45

remember brother sisters, this is the result of understanding who Allah subhanaw taala is.

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

This is this is the whole issue of Ibrahim alayhi salam, where

00:08:53--> 00:09:02

even when it's haram to talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala and where Allah subhanaw taala gave him knowledge of himself where he Brian was

00:09:04--> 00:09:24

submitted to Allah subhanaw taala says we need to ask ourselves this question and say that what is the meaning of submission to Allah subhanaw taala in my life, so if I say that I am submitting to Allah subhanaw taala what exactly am I am I talking about? What exactly is the meaning of submission as far as I'm concerned?

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

My brothers and sisters,

00:09:30--> 00:10:00

on the subject of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala on the subject of submission to Allah subhanaw taala and as I mentioned, submission in Islam is not submission. without knowledge, it is not ignorance, it is not superstition, it is not blind obedience, it is obedience with knowledge. Let me give you an example to illustrate the star Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is over and elevated and above any examples that we give. We give examples to illustrate to try to help

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Help us to understand using our own personal life and personal life experiences.

00:10:06--> 00:10:17

Say you go to a, say you have May Allah protect you from from all kinds of health issues. But say you have a health problem, right? You

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

need to, you're not feeling well. So you go to a hospital, and you are examined by

00:10:26--> 00:10:58

maybe one maybe more physicians, and one of whom is a cardiologist, another one who's a part of a large part of monologist, and so on and so forth. Now, tell me, how many times have you asked those people for their credentials? Did you ask the cardiologist? Or Second, you know, before you touch me, show me your certificate? Where do you qualify from? Which university? Which medical school when the medical college? Show me that? Did you see that?

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

You didn't see that not. So if you are taking,

00:11:04--> 00:11:45

you know, going to the hospital, and if you are obeying that doctor, and if you are taking the medicine he prescribes and if I tell you know you are you are blindly obeying somebody that's blind, which is what you tell me, you will tell me that is not blind obedience. Because before I went to that place, I checked out the place when you should do this, or if you are not doing that, then you know, something's wrong with you. And they seriously, you will tell me, I checked out that place, I find I found out about that place, I found out about those doctors and those, those specialists who are who are in that place. I convinced myself I satisfied myself that here is a hospital and here

00:11:45--> 00:12:31

are people who know their business, they are highly qualified. And then I went to them. And now when I go to them, I don't have to ask them for for their certificate, because I already know I have already found out about them. And I have convinced myself and I am completely I am trusting them. And I have full faith in their capability. So I don't have to ask them those questions. When they are prescribing a drug I take it when I take that and not taking it blindly. I'm taking it because I have knowledge. I didn't go to a carpenter to ask him for treatment for my heart disease. I didn't go to a motor mechanic to fix my heart, we just become can fix a car engine. And I don't go to a

00:12:31--> 00:12:51

car, a cardiologist to fix my car engine, just because he is a cardiologist and therefore, within quotes, his qualification is bigger and or more, you know, more more prestigious than that of a motor mechanic. I go to the right expert for the right thing because that is good sense.

00:12:53--> 00:13:27

Right? So where is the blind base of blind faith and that is not blind faith. This is Faith with knowledge. We know who Allah subhanaw taala is, that is the reason why we have to spend time in reflection, introspection, in looking around us in looking at the creation of the heavens and the earth in understanding and convincing ourselves that there is a law that Allah subhanho wa Taala exists, that nothing happens in this world without the knowledge and without the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

Today the world is reeling and

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

COVID

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

our whole lives have changed.

00:13:39--> 00:13:48

So while I mean imagine we are the generation when history is written, and if they if somebody remembers our names, they will say that these were the people who first encountered COVID

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

These were the people who are first hit.

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

Our lives have changed.

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

I travel around the world, and I haven't gone anywhere for the last one year.

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

I have not sat in a plane for the last one year.

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

Tell me when was the last time that happened to me.

00:14:17--> 00:14:25

I normally not only do I travel in planes every year I travel in planes many times every year.

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

Many times every year.

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

I have a I have a gold card on Emirates and I didn't get that by buying it.

00:14:39--> 00:14:44

But now, last one year, I haven't been near an airport.

00:14:45--> 00:14:47

I haven't got anywhere close to a plane

00:14:49--> 00:14:49

stopped

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

and I'm not alone.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

The entire airline industry is ready

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

reeling

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

under this, the entire hotel industry is reeling under this.

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

Why?

00:15:13--> 00:15:20

Think about this, this is the holder of Allah subhanaw taala This is the power of the Creator jela delallo

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

we are we are having it has all this happened that happened

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

after the sisters

00:15:32--> 00:15:36

recognize Allah subhanaw taala because then obedience will become very easy

00:15:38--> 00:15:52

and obedience is essential because if we like I give the example of this cardiac cardiologist if I want to live a healthy life then I need to follow the orders of my doctor

00:15:58--> 00:16:01

just yesterday I discovered that I have arthritis

00:16:02--> 00:16:11

my mother had arthritis a very severe arthritis male or female covered with no, my parents inshallah and Jonathan Jonathan for those who don't.

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

But I discovered Yesterday my idea of mentioning this year is to request to remake government shall

00:16:23--> 00:16:27

I tanglers Ronda, Hamdulillah, 64 years, I didn't have it.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

I want 100 all over the world, I

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

wildlife photography is a passion of mine.

00:16:39--> 00:16:54

And my knees Stop, stop working, I will not be able to do that. So I've asked Allah subhanaw taala to keep my knees functioning. And to keep me mobile and to give allow me to go climb hills and you know, go in a lot of forests and take pictures of his of his creations to show the whole world What a beautiful creation He has created.

00:16:57--> 00:17:05

Heaven and sisters, this is the author of Allah. You see the author of Allah, you recognize the author of Allah, some of it in things that you might like some of the

00:17:07--> 00:17:16

things that you might not like some of it in things that may give us pleasure, some of it in things that may give us pain. But in all of this, it is the hadith of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:18--> 00:17:32

You know, one of the, one of the benefits of of COVID. I mean, those of you who listen to the Father in mind is I'm doing a series on a couple of couple of parts on that. One of the benefits of COVID. And this is what I'm saying this is a first generation our generation Did you ever imagine

00:17:33--> 00:17:44

if somebody had told you, we are sitting here in in August of 2020. If somebody had told you in August of 2019, just one year ago,

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

that very soon,

00:17:48--> 00:17:52

this whole world is going to come to a stop.

00:17:54--> 00:17:58

Imagine this conversation you're having with this friend of yours, you're saying you've seen this when you know

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

in one year, less than one year

00:18:04--> 00:18:07

because you are sitting in August 2019.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

So you are saying to your friend,

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

in less than one year, in just a couple of months from now,

00:18:17--> 00:18:21

this whole world is going to come to a dead heart.

00:18:22--> 00:18:49

So your friend says What do you mean? What is the meaning of saying the world will come to data? So you use it your friend it means that the skies will be empty of planes, no. planes will fly. No trains will run. No buses will run all public transport will will shut down. All movie halls will shut down. All casinos will shut down the whole of Las Vegas will be dead.

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

Right.

00:18:55--> 00:19:02

cruises will shut down. Holidays. People will not take them they will not go to resorts.

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

resorts will shut down. Hotels will shut down.

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

Great big corporations will shut down big multinational companies will shut down.

00:19:16--> 00:19:26

People will start working from home. Not just it is companies not just people doing medical transcription. You and I will be working from our home.

00:19:27--> 00:19:34

There will be 1000s upon 1000s upon 1000s of people who will lose jobs who will be out of jobs.

00:19:38--> 00:19:38

Right.

00:19:41--> 00:19:49

All of us not only the Japanese. The Japanese did it or did it always. But all of us are going to be walking around with masks.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

entire cities will be locked down

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

Your friend will say what is what do you mean lockdown? So you will say to a friend,

00:20:06--> 00:20:13

lockdown means that you will not be able to leave your house

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

day or night

00:20:17--> 00:20:27

and if there is an emergency you will have to get a special permit from the police to leave your house even to go to the hospital.

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

You will say well what about food, your problem

00:20:36--> 00:20:41

you will not be able to if you leave your house, you will be arrested. You will be beaten by the police.

00:20:42--> 00:20:46

And if you think I'm exaggerating, see what's happening in India.

00:20:50--> 00:20:59

So your friend is telling you this whole story. Tell me what would have been your reaction I mean I can I can I can elaborate this I won't do that because you know the story right?

00:21:00--> 00:21:03

You know the story. I know the story. We are living the story.

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

One year ago, if your friend had told you this whole thing, what would be your reaction?

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

You know what I what my reaction would have been?

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

My reaction would have been to say you know something?

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

I think that stuff you're smoking

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

is doing something to your brain.

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

Right?

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

I told you don't do that.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

Don't smoke that stuff not good for you.

00:21:32--> 00:21:38

think something's gone wrong with you. whole world will come to a stop planes won't fly hotels which I met

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

you totally crazy. Are you mad?

00:21:43--> 00:21:51

There will be no the haramain Sharif it will shut down. You will not be able to go and make armor.

00:21:52--> 00:21:59

You will not be able to go and make zerah at this at the at the at the router of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:22:03--> 00:22:17

the Salah in the haramain will be done by the Imam and some of the cleaning people learn some of the officials who are there 20 people will play will praise Allah to fudger in Masuda NaVi or Sharif

00:22:19--> 00:22:19

and you know what?

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

You know what the man used to say? You stole

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

sudo halaal

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

haddou by Almanack ev vologda.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

You know the man will not say that

00:22:38--> 00:22:53

the man will not say that anymore, because Salah first of all massages will be shut and where a massage is open, people are going to be praying standing six feet apart.

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

Forget about shoulder to shoulder.

00:23:07--> 00:23:22

The SFX will not be characterized by people standing shoulder to shoulder the sub will be characterized by six feet of space between two worshipers

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

and then your friend will say You know what?

00:23:30--> 00:23:35

In this time, Ramadan will come and there will be no taraweeh

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

there will be no if third parties

00:23:41--> 00:23:46

and for the other bodies. You know what he will say? He would say you know all of these fancy marriages.

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

All of these ostentatious weddings

00:23:52--> 00:24:08

that yamabe used to talk against and keep telling you don't do that. Simplify your weddings. You are going to be performing the wedding of your son or your daughter in your house with five people. Six people will eight people.

00:24:11--> 00:24:16

People will say people would have said if you are if your friend had told you all of this.

00:24:17--> 00:24:23

You would have said you have gone mad. I mean really I have no I have nothing to say I think you have gone crazy.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

Sisters, what did it take a lot

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

to make all of this happen and believe me we have not seen the end of this. We have not seen the end.

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

People are talking about vaccine.

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

They've been searching for the AIDS vaccine for the last 40 years.

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

They've got influenza vaccine which you have to give taking booster shots.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

Now brothers sisters, what did it take Allah take all of this happen.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

One litas

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

One virus.

00:25:03--> 00:25:17

Somebody did this calculation. I don't trust any of these calculations. I don't have the math in my head to be able to verify that and Valhalla, but somebody did. Calculation I'm sure you've all heard this because it is all WhatsApp university education.

00:25:21--> 00:25:44

And that person said that if all the corona viruses that exist from the first one that was detected kill the one that is now if they were all collected together, they would weigh less than one gram. And of course I'll know Allah knows best because the virus is so small that you can't even see it with the naked eye you need an electron microscope to see

00:25:48--> 00:25:48

what do you take

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

one virus

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

to stop us

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

to give us a chance to come to our senses.

00:26:03--> 00:26:11

To give us a chance to understand that we had better obey Allah, or else.

00:26:19--> 00:26:23

My brothers and sisters, really seriously ask yourself this question.

00:26:25--> 00:26:32

The first and foremost the most fundamental point and principle of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala Salah

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

when masajid had to be shut down

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

to try to contain COVID infection. A lot of people made a lot of noise. A

00:26:45--> 00:26:49

lot of people made a lot of noise. A lot of people criticized others.

00:26:50--> 00:26:58

they criticize budget committees they criticize, for example, when the Hara mine were shut down. They said the Saudis have no human

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

hair, they have all become mortal.

00:27:01--> 00:27:07

They have no shame and this and that La Villa hotel. How sad How shameful is that?

00:27:09--> 00:27:15

That you accused another Muslim brother of not having him or did he go into his heart to see if he is evil or not?

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

People were taking decisions.

00:27:21--> 00:27:22

crying tears of blood.

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

Ask me

00:27:26--> 00:27:28

the Mr. gmic. The

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

Muslim Islamic Center has been shut down.

00:27:43--> 00:27:50

our money managers who decides but I am one of the key decision makers in that you asked me how painful that was.

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

And if you think I'd

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

now at hedge

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

when the in order to contain and in order to protect people from the Coronavirus from COVID-19

00:28:07--> 00:28:12

when the Saudi authorities restricted the number of hospital bills to 10,000

00:28:14--> 00:28:24

and all the steps that they took of first quarantining and then checking and so on and so forth, and the whole Haji Abdullah was completed without any casualties.

00:28:26--> 00:28:30

There are people who criticize and criticize them who made big speeches.

00:28:33--> 00:28:37

Now hold on a hotel in la de la. Go mega Stefan Toba.

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

The Saudis are not paying me to say this.

00:28:42--> 00:28:47

I'm not sanctioning everything that is happening is all the Arabia. I'm just saying that in this particular case.

00:28:49--> 00:28:57

In order to imagine if Hajj had happened the way it normally happens, and if 2 million 3 million people are all cut it together

00:28:58--> 00:29:00

in one place like this.

00:29:03--> 00:29:13

What would have happened when there was an outbreak of COVID and you would have seen hundreds and 1000s of dead people, bodies laying everywhere.

00:29:14--> 00:29:15

You would have liked that.

00:29:19--> 00:29:29

I'm talking about obedience, understanding who allies you might say what does that what does this have to do with the Brian militia which has everything to do with bribery?

00:29:31--> 00:29:32

slim Kala

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

Allison submit he said I have submitted.

00:29:40--> 00:29:46

But if you recognize the glory and majesty of Poland is what I'm saying. Allah subhanho wa Taala brought us to a stop.

00:29:48--> 00:29:51

Allah subhanaw taala said fine. Where are you going?

00:29:53--> 00:29:57

We should not hold on. I don't know. I don't have time to answer that. I am busy.

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

I'm busy.

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

I will tell you when I'm free.

00:30:05--> 00:30:06

So Allah made you free.

00:30:08--> 00:30:15

Allah made you free Allah locked you up in your house, Allah subhanho wa Taala shut the doors of his house for you

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

and me.

00:30:18--> 00:30:22

And Allah said stay at home, worship me from home.

00:30:23--> 00:30:42

And of course the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah Rasool Allah Allah let anyone who dies from a pandemic from a epidemic dies a Shaheed anyone who dies with the man because of abandoning dyes or shade. Remember you we all have died, we all have to die one day anyway.

00:30:44--> 00:30:51

So if you died of diabetes or you died of, you know, cardiac arrest or something,

00:30:52--> 00:31:04

May Allah give you genital fizzles In any case, but I'm saying you would not have diabetes, but if you died of COVID-19, or you died of some kind of pandemic, then you die I assure you, and remember, if you do not die,

00:31:06--> 00:31:18

as soon as Allah Sallam said, if there is an epidemic, take precautions, stay inside your house, do not leave your house, confine yourself quarantine yourself, we didn't use the term that is what it means.

00:31:19--> 00:31:29

And he said, if the thing passes, and you are alive and healthy in your house, you would be counted among the Shahada among the martyrs

00:31:30--> 00:31:51

What more can you ask? If you die you are a martyr if you live you are still a martyr, inshallah. To the mercy of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala sends a test and the test is difficult it is tough, but it is usually beneficial because it's shut us down. Allah said stop everything you do. Including going to the masjid

00:31:53--> 00:31:57

today a lot of people are you know in the massage shutdown a lot of people made a lot of money

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

magically to

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

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

begged and pleaded with you. Please come please come you don't come busy.

00:32:14--> 00:32:16

00:32:21--> 00:32:24

My brothers and sisters Come to your senses. Come to your senses.

00:32:26--> 00:32:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent this thing to us to show his authority to show his power to show his control.

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

All the money in the world cannot stop COVID all the weapons in the world cannot stop COVID

00:32:41--> 00:32:44

all the political gimmickry in the world cannot stop COVID

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

right.

00:32:47--> 00:32:54

All the big titles in the big shacks and the big turbans and the big crowns and everything cannot stop COVID

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

all this duar is doing nothing for COVID I'm asking the people though the old man whatever Do you

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

seriously ask yourself this question.

00:33:08--> 00:33:15

Submit Allah subhanaw taala Nick is still farming is still farming is therefore denied make us differ because that is the only thing which will save us.

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

First,

in Canada for

00:33:22--> 00:33:26

Mr Vardalos monitor and to Allah we have seen.

00:33:27--> 00:33:31

We have seen we are criminals we do knowingly.

00:33:34--> 00:33:42

To make a mistake because of lack of knowledge is wanting to deliberately know do something is a crime. It's not a mistake.

00:33:44--> 00:33:47

You deal in interest. Is that a mistake?

00:33:48--> 00:33:54

You lie you cheat. Is that a mistake? You character assassinate your brothers is that a mistake?

00:33:57--> 00:34:04

You go back on your word you do not you do break your promises you do not keep your promises is that are those mistakes.

00:34:05--> 00:34:12

You take away people's rights, you deny your sisters their inheritance, you abuse your wife's

00:34:14--> 00:34:15

you abuse your children.

00:34:17--> 00:34:28

You do not give your children the right and what is the right is not the right is not giving is not gadgets and gimmicks, their right is tarbiyah the right is that they should be introduced to Allah subhanaw taala.

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

The right is that you should nurture them and you should mentor them. You don't do that.

00:34:37--> 00:34:38

Is that a mistake?

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

My brothers and sisters Time to wake up.

00:34:44--> 00:34:52

Time to wake up. Because one of the things that COVID has done is it has suddenly made us understand that we are mortal.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

That is life is not going to go on forever. That this life is going to come to art

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

And we are going to be rudely awakened.

00:35:06--> 00:35:07
