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

Hello Ramallah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah filmbay will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira formado. My dear brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah, Allah subhanho wa Taala enabled us to complete the,

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

I say complete in a very reserved sense because, really the stories of the Gambia and he was

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

so full of lessons that nobody can claim to complete the story as in and nothing more needs to be learned or nothing more needs to be said. About we have completed the lesson that I had prepared on the story and the life of,

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

of

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

Emily Sela. Now, a hungry lab

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

as I mentioned that I keep mentioning and I will keep mentioning

00:01:03--> 00:01:37

the purpose of these classes is for us to reflect on our own practice of the dean. Right, it's not about what do I know about Ibrahim alayhis salam and that's the reason why I I don't have tests at the end of these classes and I'm sure many of you are very happy about that. But happy or not I don't have tests because in a test all that you all that I can measure is memory and that is immaterial. There is no need for you to remember things and mug up things well the video is there you can watch it 1000 times you know mix know that that's not a problem.

00:01:39--> 00:02:04

The issue is to look in our lives and say what is it that I am I have changed in what way have I changed if there is one single most powerful lesson that we can learn from the life of Grammarly. Salaam, it is the lesson of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala with God Allah hora boo Aslam Kala Aslam to me

00:02:05--> 00:02:15

this was your MLA Salamis Rob said to him, submit he said I have submitted no arguments, no, you know if anything and botting

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

none of that just unless I do this, I've done it.

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

Whatever Allah subhanaw taala said, Even I'm Elisa Lam immediately, without question, he followed it.

00:02:30--> 00:02:54

I think if that is one single lesson that if we take away from the life of your primary Salah, and believe me we learn nothing else, it doesn't matter that one lesson is enough insha Allah to guarantee us genital fingers because then it means that my entire life is going to be a life of submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala which is the the formula for gender.

00:02:55--> 00:03:07

So ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you and me a life which is like the life of Imani Salaam, in terms of the obedience to Allah subhanaw taala not in terms of his deaths, while he is one, this is

00:03:09--> 00:03:54

the prerogative of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his makara both of whom the Emilia was alive and the Rasul are the foremost those who Allah who are closest to Allah get tested the most. I'm not saying we don't want to be close to Allah, we want to be very close to Allah subhanaw taala but we say Allah We are very weak. So please don't test us you know, as already we accept and we confess our sins we make a giraffe of our mascot, and we asked you to forgive us so please forgive us and enter us into genda without question without his app, your agenda is is huge, it is massive, it is very big, Mashallah, you know, one little person in one corner is not going to take up anything. So

00:03:54--> 00:04:25

please give us please give us and you have given us everything in this world without asking. So now give us Jana, because we are asking and even this asking is from you. It is you who put this awareness of your self awareness of accountability before you awareness of answering you on the Day of Judgment, awareness that there is a Jana and Jana, and awareness that you are our Rob geladeira lu and you are the one who forgives in the gaafu. One,

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

to humble fo for

00:04:29--> 00:04:36

the beautiful door that also applies God to his beloved wife, our mother is at the heart of Allah.

00:04:38--> 00:04:53

Wa We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us this drug or law, you are the one who forgives and you love to forgive. So please forgive me. So this is what we ask. And this is the thing to learn from the life of Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

Today I'm starting a new

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

the story of another one of the great MBA

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

mussalam one of the great prophets of Allah, hood alayhis salaam, and the story of who they serve, I want to say one thing when Allah subhanaw taala said, his God Allahumma, whom, who? Allah Tata Who? Now?

00:05:18--> 00:05:26

Their brotherhood, this is a form that Allah subhanaw taala has used when he mentioned

00:05:29--> 00:05:48

a lot of the ambulances, right. So effectively, it's something that applies to all of them. where Allah Allah called the Navy, the brother of the people to whom that Navy was sent. I think about that, that no Navy was sent to a bunch of people who are Sally, whoa.

00:05:49--> 00:06:11

You know, who are people who are kind of tuned, who are people who are very obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala very pious and beautiful good people know, the the very fact that the Navy was sent was a message to say that these people were one step away from jahannam. These people were bad, they were not just bad. They were bad, just right.

00:06:12--> 00:06:35

Not there's no word like that. They were the worst of the worst. These people were really, really, really hugely misguided. And that is why Allah subhanaw taala sent a Nabhi to them. Allah didn't send me an MBI just like that. So when Allah Subhana, Allah sent an IV to somebody, it means that that never went to some of the worst people. But Allah subhanaw taala called me the brother of those people. Now, what does that tell us?

00:06:36--> 00:06:41

That to me, that tells us two things. One is that we are not necessarily

00:06:44--> 00:07:25

we don't necessarily need to be affected by what is happening in our society, because here is an abbey, which is the epitome of good, which is the epitome of positivity, which is the epitome of virtue in the middle of a bunch of people who are the opposite what the epitome of wise and, and all kinds of nastiness. So it is not necessary. So if you say, Well, you know, what can I do the society so bad, society can be anything. What you want to be is your choice, how you want to live your life is your choice. And that is what you and I are going to be held accountable for. Allah will not ask you and me how our society? No. How was American culture? How was Indian culture? No, Allah will ask

00:07:25--> 00:07:44

you What did you do? Allah will not ask you how much did you know? And I will say what did you do? Right? Did you know that? Did you know that? Hadees that I'll never say Salaam said that your brewery man is not complete until you want for your brother what you want for yourself? Oh, yes, of course I know. That is I know, the all the the the generators of the harness and so on and so forth.

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

Allah will not ask you that question. I will say, how did you treat your brother?

00:07:51--> 00:08:17

Your brother needed something? Did you give it to him? Your brother had some issue? Did you help him? This is the question. The question is, that's what is going to be asked is not going to be asked to you. What did you know? Now this is a beautiful story of Abdullah Omar Abdullah, who was in ethnographic matches in Abuja. And when he was there, another man came, and he saw

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

his bad game when

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

or when

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

not or not to work when

00:08:25--> 00:09:01

I was in ethnographic matches. And this man came and he saw him there. And he said, Oh, you're here. So say, Abdullah, I've never said to him, what's wrong with you? And why? why he's not hearing the most of the head the gap. So what's wrong with that? He's an arrow. Nothing is wrong with that. But you know, I had come to you with some hope. Because I owe money to somebody, man, I'm not able to pay on time. It's due now. So I want to ask him for some additional time. Now he might not listen to me. So I thought I will come and ask you to come with me and intercede on my behalf and request the man to give me some more time to pay him back. But now you are in a gap. So you can't go anywhere

00:09:01--> 00:09:10

says no. Abdullah. Omar said no, I'm coming with you. So the man said he would break anything. He said, Yes, I will break my leg up. I'll come back and redo it. He said How's that?

00:09:12--> 00:09:32

Abdullah Al Anima said Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that to help your brother to work with your brother, when he is in need, meaning to help him when he is in need, is more virtuous, is more beneficial, it's more worthy of reward than one month of ethica University.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

So he said hamdulillah I will get my autograph but I will come with you. I this is more rewarding. Now this is the meaning of helping your brother who is in need. So the question I keep on reminding myself and you it's not how much you know that so don't feel very proud that you know as I read this book study that you know, it's what you apply in your life. That is what is going to, to have worked with Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

That is why Allah subhanaw taala will with the deeds you will not count them, right? Where the deeds because it's the value of that deed was that deed done with sincerity was that deed done with the last word that was that deed done, only and only to please Allah subhanaw taala was that deed done with some ulterior motive to show off or whatever

00:10:20--> 00:10:26

same deed done in one way, is worthy of reward done in another way, is worthy of punishment.

00:10:27--> 00:10:33

This is the, this is this is the issue with, with ourselves. So,

00:10:34--> 00:10:39

first thing we understand, I understand, is when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the Gambia, as their brother,

00:10:41--> 00:10:46

is that even though you might be in a society, which is not

00:10:47--> 00:11:33

an Islamic which is not on the Islamic principles, which is not an Islamic Society, a society which is full of lies and so on so forth, it does not mean that you need to go with the flow. Dead fish go with the flow, live fish, swim against the current. So, always be against a stand for justice, stand for compassion, stand for purity, stand for sincerity, stand for virtue against vise against sin, this is very, very important. Today we have this COVID Swami This is such a blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala for those who are who who have intelligence, and who are willing to think that just think about our behavior and COVID What are we saying? We are saying get real, stop fooling

00:11:33--> 00:11:44

yourself, this thing is dangerous, this thing is lethal. So wear your mask, protect yourself from the external environment.

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

Right? How do you do that? Number one, if you have to go out, protect yourself wear a mask, wash your hands, whatever of the environment touches you wash it away.

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

And third thing is even to go out or not think twice.

00:12:03--> 00:12:22

Don't deliberately put yourself in line have in line for for danger line for infection by wandering around here and there and you know, going to places unnecessarily don't do that. Avoid crowds, avoid congregations avoid gatherings

00:12:24--> 00:12:35

all of this in order to protect yourself from a virus. Now think about how about protecting ourselves from sin. What must we do?

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

Same rules, same rules stay away from people who are committing sin

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

keep yourself

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

interact only when there is a need go only to the grocery shop don't go wandering and you know window shopping No.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

Go only for what you need.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

only deal with as much as you need to do not more than that. And when you do that, when you go into the grocery store wearing a mask,

00:13:03--> 00:13:11

even when you are dealing with people who are committing sin and so on and so forth are living in that society, protect yourself.

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

And then what must you do? As soon as you come wash your hands make us the far

00:13:19--> 00:13:52

make Toba clean yourself, whatever of the dust and so on. came on you wash it off. You know what doctors are doing. A lot of people are may or may Allah protect them melasma hantera reward them with the best of the best. The the health workers, the doctors, the first responders, these are people's varla this COVID has brought out the best in humanity swana people who are on a daily basis, they know the danger, they are risking their lives in order to help other people.

00:13:54--> 00:14:35

You know what a lot of them are doing. Literally as soon as they as soon as they in America, you know there's some resources. So there are people who enter the garage, get out of the car and walk into the shower, they have a shower downstairs, they just walk into the shower, from the garage into the shower, they get rid of all their clothes, they have a proper full shower wash themselves, put on clean clothes and only then do they enter their house. They do not even enter the house with their clothing from the hospital the people who are taking care to that extent because they are exposed to the to the COVID there are people who are dealing with children and so on and so forth.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

Who are getting tested every single day.

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

Every single day.

00:14:43--> 00:14:54

Right, they take they get they get ianto COVID test every single day because we don't know I mean, yesterday was fine. Maybe I picked up the infection before I got home and today. Maybe I'm infected so every single day they're getting tested.

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

What about see

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

now we are doing all of this because we know COVID

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

Dangerous we know coronas dangerous. We know that, you know what, Jimmy what is the worst that can happen, you can die, but you will die anyway. But you don't have to go to Jannah

00:15:09--> 00:15:21

and this is the point which I which I keep on telling myself and I keep on trying to convince people that there is a there is a there is a similarity between COVID and sin, but there is a point of departure

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

COVID the worst that can happen with COVID his death,

00:15:27--> 00:15:50

within quotes was and that is worse if you don't understand because if despite taking protection, I mean, imagine if you are not taking protection, and May Allah protect you, maybe you are you will be counted as somebody who committed suicide. So don't do that do take protection that is very, very important. But after despite taking protection and so on and so forth, life and death is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala if you still get COVID and you die, then inshallah you die is heat.

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

Now, what's bad about that? What is bad about that?

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

And debt itself, so I'm saying the worst within courts, the worst is you can die, but you die anyway.

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

You die anyway.

00:16:09--> 00:16:15

But Jana, it's not inevitable. It's not as if you have to go, you have to go to Japan anyway. No, you don't need to go to Japan.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

So getting infected by COVID.

00:16:20--> 00:16:29

Within courts worst is death. And as I told you, even that can take your agenda. So not only is it not was it is the biggest blessing.

00:16:30--> 00:16:50

But provided that without your helping it without your you know, aiding and abetting in that by not taking precautions and so on and endangering yourself and others don't do that. Please don't do that. take precautions very, very important to a professional Islam is totally 100%. The biggest and most important principle in Islam is protection of life,

00:16:51--> 00:17:01

your life and the lives of others. So protect yourself and do not do anything which can endanger other people. So it's not a question of saying I don't care, you may not care but other people can.

00:17:02--> 00:17:15

So make sure that you do not do anything which endangers other people. But despite that, if you die in sha Allah, you are, you will die He may Allah protect us. And may Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Take us in a state when we are obedient to Him.

00:17:20--> 00:17:24

But with sin, if you get infected by sin, and if you die on sin,

00:17:25--> 00:17:31

remember, a small sin committed repeatedly is counted as

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

a major sin committed repeated

00:17:36--> 00:17:42

deliberately leads to leads to denial of Allah subhanaw taala itself

00:17:43--> 00:18:23

because the sin is disobedience of Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala for example, private interest based banking, Allah subhanaw taala privated gambling, Allah subhanaw taala privater fornication and adultery, Allah subhanaw taala for a privated drinking of alcohol, Allah subhanaw taala prohibited usurping other people's rights Allah subhanaw taala prohibited telling lies, or deliberately if I'm doing these things? And how can you accidentally take a loan? Tell me here? How can you accidentally go to a to a gambling den to a casino or to a Racecourse and buy a ticket and actually put money on a horse or on a roulette table or in a slot machine and say, Well, you know, I didn't know it just

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

happened accidentally doesn't have an accident. You know, it doesn't. You do it?

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

You know exactly why you're doing that. And you also know that what you're doing is wrong.

00:18:35--> 00:18:35

Believe me,

00:18:37--> 00:18:49

you're literally playing with fire. Quite literally, there's there's no, there's no allegorical reference, you are literally playing with fire and that fire is a fire agenda.

00:18:51--> 00:18:56

Because you're saying by your action to Allah subhanaw taala you may have privated thereby I don't care.

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

I like to do it. So I will do it.

00:19:01--> 00:19:18

Please, my brother and sisters, time to wake up high time to write. Please understand this. So here, first thing we learn when Alice Rhonda mentioned the NBA Live, when he called them the brothers of the people to whom he sent them

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

is that

00:19:21--> 00:19:33

you don't have to be like the society we live in. If that society is bad, if there is something wrong with society, it doesn't mean necessarily that you have to be with them. Number one, number two, what is the role of a brother?

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

The role of a brother is to wish for and work for the best for his brothers.

00:19:42--> 00:19:47

What kind of brother is it was wealthy and his his brother or a sister is turning

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

shamans such people what is the good of them? There's no point in them being there.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

What is the good of a brother whose brother is in need? Right? He's in hospital. Maybe you

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

Pay the bill or something, maybe it's got children who are who are, who have difficulties, you know, paying school fees or whatnot, whatever the case might be. And you have the there there is a brother is one of the sons of that family, one of the daughters of the family was wealthy, and they will not spend money on their own family, what is the good of that?

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

So, what is the role of the bra, the role of the brother is to help the

00:20:27--> 00:20:30

brother who does not have the brothers, not a brother, simple as that.

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

What is the best help you can give?

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

It's not feeding, it's not, you know, putting money in the pocket is not

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

paying somebody school fees, the best

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

help you can give is to lead the person to Allah Subhana hota

00:20:48--> 00:20:56

is to help him to connect with Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah, that is the best app, there is no other help better than that, because that is ever lasting help.

00:20:58--> 00:21:05

If I feed somebody, one time, I take care of his or her hunger for a short period of time.

00:21:06--> 00:21:12

They were hungry, they got a meal, they enjoyed the meal, Sasha did full belly is full.

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

Until,

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

until the next day,

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

next day again.

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

So my action,

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

it's a good action. It is worthy of Allah subhanho wa Taala as a reward, and we ask Allah for the record, but that is a temporary reaction for a particular time.

00:21:35--> 00:21:41

It doesn't take care of their problem or their need forever.

00:21:42--> 00:22:03

But if there is somebody who was misguided if there was somebody who was governing ship, if there was somebody who was who was indulging in all kinds of activities, which allowed and if you make the effort, and because of your effort, Allah subhanaw taala chooses to guide that person, then believe me that person has been saved from the anger of Allah, which is permanent.

00:22:05--> 00:22:10

If that person wasn't agenda, there's nowhere else to go after that. All right.

00:22:12--> 00:22:17

So guidance will, if a person is not a Muslim, enter Islam this person has been saved forever.

00:22:20--> 00:22:25

So today we understand Allah mentioned, the Amira was Allah as the brothers. First is,

00:22:27--> 00:22:33

even though you're the brother, you do not have to allow the corruption of society to corrupt you.

00:22:34--> 00:22:43

You can be and should be pure in the middle of that because there is no use. You cannot help somebody who is sick by being sick yourself.

00:22:44--> 00:23:00

Who can help somebody who's sick, somebody who's healthy, somebody who's not sick. If there is a dirty piece of cloth, and you want to clean that cloth, what do you need dirty water or clean water. You need clean water.

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

You don't take a dirty piece of cloth and wash it in a in a drain.

00:23:07--> 00:23:26

You take a dirty piece of blood and you wash it in clean water so it becomes clear. So to be able to help somebody you need to be someone who is capable of that helping which means that even though society is corrupted, you don't need to be corrupt. Second one is do your duty as a brother which is help people

00:23:27--> 00:23:33

and what is the biggest help for people is to guide them towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is what the MLA was Salam did

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

Allah de taco Are you not going to be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

in in Laguna zero movie and I have been sent to you as a water.

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

This is what all the ambi la mussalam say.

00:23:49--> 00:24:02

The altered that's what I'm used to said we will call Oh La ilaha illAllah tofu. C'est la ilaha illAllah and become successful. He didn't say se la la la la helped me No.

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

It's not about him. It's about you

00:24:08--> 00:24:16

know, the story of who the la sala the ad, these were the are the some old and so on. These were the ancient Arabs.

00:24:18--> 00:24:25

And they lived in different places, in Yemen, and in in that whole area of Arabia.

00:24:27--> 00:24:53

People know even in this part of Arab history that these people were there. There is none of them. Who are there today. I mean, they have those those, those people have completely disappeared and there is no trace of them today whatsoever. So these are the people in the area of a cough in Yemen. And we only know about them because Allah subhanaw taala told us about them in the Quran.

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

In Arab legends, they talk about them.

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

In Arabic literature, there is their story.

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

But there is no trace of them on the land all that remains is sand.

00:25:08--> 00:25:26

Allah Mondo della zeuthen further mentioned these people and see the the way that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned these people, I'll tell you a little anecdote about this. These ayah Allah subhanaw taala said I will be leaving a shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim lm Dara Guevara buka biard

00:25:27--> 00:26:06

lm Tara gave avala rabuka bR era Mazda dealer a mad I let the llama you hola como es la fille de la the last round that I said did you over hammer sallallahu Sallam not see how your rub dealt with the people have dealt with the head who were very tall like lofty pillars. Allah is describing the physical attributes of the people and he said they were very tall, like lofty pillars, the like of which were not created in the land

00:26:10--> 00:26:14

unless talking about them and alleged talking about also their city,

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

which

00:26:17--> 00:26:20

was that and then in the footsie that I lost my data

00:26:22--> 00:26:35

from June 1 talk about Oh, fill out the be very lucky. rokkaku What did they say? Man Asha domina COVID. Our lamb Yarrow, Nala holla de holla calm.

00:26:36--> 00:27:12

Shut dohmen Cova wakatobi Idina yadong for our Salah la him Rehan sort of Soren fee? Uh, yeah, I mean, he said in the new Zika home, other than hazy filati dunia Villa, Fira de la BA home la Yun sorrow. Allah subhanaw taala. As in as for the ad, they were arrogant in the land without a right they have no right to be arrogant, but they were arrogant. And they said who is mightier than us in strength? Who is bigger than us in strength? Right.

00:27:15--> 00:27:50

And then Allah said to them, we do not see that Allah subhanho wa Taala, who created them was mightier and bigger than them in strength. And they used to deny our ayat. They deny the signs of Allah. So we send about them upon them furious wind, in days of evil omen for them, that we might give them a taste of disgracing torment in this present worldly life, but surely, the torment of the hereafter will be more disgracing, and they will never be helped. Analysis does, you know,

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

if you read

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

history, we'll find that especially in the days

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

of

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

were, you know, it is a battle,

00:28:05--> 00:28:08

physical progress, physical strength,

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

the ability to wage war, the ability to fight

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

was a primary

00:28:16--> 00:28:57

primary strength and asset of people of soldiers, of kings and so on. And so physical strength was a very important thing. And today we live in a world where somebody sits somewhere 1000s of miles away from where the war is happening and presses a button and you have a machine which does your work for you, Allah protect us from ourselves. But in the days when when they were, you know, physical fights in wars, medieval times, and of course, the the Amazon is not medieval times. It's ancient history, long before medieval times. So physical strength was a big thing. So people who were big and strong tended to become very arrogant. And this is one of the things with the ad where they were they were

00:28:57--> 00:29:13

like that they were, you know, tended to be very arrogant. And this is Marsha Domenico, who is so strong as us We are the strongest people. I mean, we are big and we are massive, and we are so strong and and so warlike, and whatnot. And as Rhonda says, This is this shows the, the foolishness of humanity.

00:29:15--> 00:29:21

A product can never be superior to the one who produced that product.

00:29:22--> 00:29:26

Whatever it might be, the maker is always stronger because the maker made you

00:29:27--> 00:29:31

they are saying who is stronger as well as heavy knowledge stronger than you Allah made you

00:29:32--> 00:29:34

and what Allah makes lag and destroy.

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

And unless telling us this is what

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

Allah sent on them a will.

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

Which did with them for seven days a night imagine a tornado see what happens on a tornado in a tornado. When it when it hits something, and a donor just goes bust right to it. So at any individual spot, that the tornado passed. Oh,

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

The tornado would have spent

00:30:04--> 00:30:15

maybe seconds, maybe minutes. But that's it. Like, you don't you never have I've never I've never known of a tornado which sat in one place for an hour, not moving in that one place for an hour.

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

In this case, it's set for seven days.

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

Right? Now, this is the

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

this is the thing that Allah subhanaw taala is telling us and Allah

00:30:29--> 00:30:50

does have the story so that we can understand the world understand that worldly power and wealth has nothing before Allah who has given it to us in the first place. And so that we take heed from the ending of those who had it and were arrogant. Well, I today, we are people living in the middle of the sign of Allah subhana wa tada

00:30:52--> 00:30:55

and that sign of Allah subhanho wa Taala is Coronavirus is COVID.

00:30:57--> 00:31:04

Let me ask you a question today. I'm sitting here now, September 2020. That's September 2020.

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

We came to America last year, September 2019.

00:31:13--> 00:31:18

September 2019. When we came here we flew Qatar Airways.

00:31:19--> 00:31:27

Very nice flight beautiful airline. I recommend that to you. And of course I always you know, I love Emirates.

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

My point is

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

in September 2020 when we landed in Boston, after a lovely flight, if somebody had stopped me in the airport and said you know what, in three months from now,

00:31:43--> 00:31:46

the whole world is going to come to a halt.

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

There will be no planes in the sky.

00:31:52--> 00:31:52

No planes,

00:31:54--> 00:31:56

trains will stop. buses will stop.

00:31:58--> 00:32:03

People are going to be locked down and confined to their homes.

00:32:06--> 00:32:22

They will not be able to leave their house and if they leave their houses depending on which country they are, they are in they will either be fined or they are in India they will be beaten by the police. May Allah protect us from ourselves. We talk about civilization and we are barbaric beyond belief.

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

factories are going to stop. multinational corporations are going to stop.

00:32:33--> 00:32:41

You will not be able to go to work. Schools are going to shut down. Universities are going to shut down and hold your breath.

00:32:42--> 00:32:50

Churches are going to shut down synagogues are going to shut down masajid are going to shut down and hold your breath.

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

The Haram Sharif is going to shut down in Makkah and Medina

00:32:56--> 00:32:58

haram and Sharif is going to shut down

00:33:00--> 00:33:01

and hold your breath.

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

Hard you will be stopped.

00:33:06--> 00:33:07

There will be no Amara.

00:33:10--> 00:33:14

Only maybe the cleaners in the haramein will pray.

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

And Hajj will be done by a handful of people.

00:33:22--> 00:33:31

Not the 2 million 3 million we are used to No no no, no, no, not even close to that. Just a handful of people, few 100 people maybe 1000 people.

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

Right.

00:33:37--> 00:34:23

And people will be dying like flies, they will die in hospitals there will be no place to bury them. So they are going to have refrigerated vans and trucks standing outside hospitals. Not with food and cold drinks, but to keep bodies. So somebody dies in the hospital we have no place to bury them no time to bury them. So we just take the body and put it into the refrigerated van and it sits there until there is time and place to bury them. All of this is going to happen if I had when I was getting off the plane when I got off the plane in Boston last year. If somebody had stopped me in the airport and told me this whole thing and said you know what? I had a dream and this is what I

00:34:24--> 00:34:29

saw in my dream. I would have asked him brother You know, I mean I think if you stop smoking that stuff you're smoking

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

really seriously i think you know

00:34:33--> 00:34:39

what what what what what is it what's happened to me something has gone wrong with your brain. planes will stop.

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

No planes in the sky.

00:34:43--> 00:34:52

multinational companies will shut down university will shut down. schools will shut down we won't be able to leave our home. Even the Harmon is mad Are you crazy?

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

That would have been my reaction that would have been your reaction

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

but

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

One year later.

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

And long before one year later.

00:35:06--> 00:35:14

You know, and I know that every single word of that prophecy if it had been made, came true.

00:35:17--> 00:35:25

I wonder where all the astrologers and all the all the stargazers and all the, you know,

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

all the fortune tellers of the world are

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

How come nobody saw that

00:35:33--> 00:35:39

all the newspaper columns that a lot of us read which is which is islamically Haram.

00:35:41--> 00:35:48

But you read that now what what is what is so and so that was saying, and what is this one thing and that is what that one is saying? This is what will happen to the world?

00:35:52--> 00:35:56

What happened to that lobster or something which was predicting World Cup Winners?

00:35:57--> 00:36:00

Nobody predicted COVID nobody predicted COVID.

00:36:03--> 00:36:14

But tell me, no matter how crazy it sounds, that is what you and I are witness to our umbrella. We have seen this happening and I'm saying fall in salute and thank Allah that Allah God was saying.

00:36:15--> 00:36:22

And I'm saying thank Allah because we are living in the sun. We are the people when history of this world is written of this time is it

00:36:23--> 00:36:26

and who lived through this time it is going to be you and me.

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

question is What did we learn?

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

What did we learn?

00:36:33--> 00:36:38

Allah subhanaw taala showed is showing us and showed us and is showing us His power.

00:36:39--> 00:36:57

And his glory and majesty. We ask Allah to show that show us these things in you know, in different ways in other ways. But Allah shows us this because Swami we are we are people as human beings who don't seem to understand language of softness. We need a whack of the head.

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

And sometimes even that doesn't work.

00:37:02--> 00:37:09

But Allah subhanaw taala does what he wants to do. And Allah is not begging us and pleading with us to obey Him, it's up to us don't don't do what you want.

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

Because the day will come and we will meet it.

00:37:18--> 00:37:36

Did you imagine Can you imagine in seven months, in America alone, 200,000 people have died with COVID two lakh people. 200,000 Americans have died of COVID in the last seven months in the US alone, and at least in this country that count. And we know the numbers.

00:37:38--> 00:37:44

In many other countries, in India, for example, the government openly admitted that they do not have the numbers.

00:37:47--> 00:38:25

And you can be you can bet the number in India is God or maybe 10 times is we know we don't know, because the population is is huge. And people live in very close proximity, and they have nowhere else to go. So the obviously the numbers are going to be much, much higher. you'd imagine is going to happen, did you and I imagine that this is going to happen. We ask Allah for relief from this, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to live this COVID and to save us all from this. And we ask Allah to help us to understand the sign that he's sending us We ask Allah to recognize His glory and majesty and his power, which is showing us this is what the ad said, who is stronger than us. And this is what

00:38:25--> 00:38:41

we humanity. We're saying to Allah subhanaw taala, who is stronger than us, who has bigger armies than we have, who has bigger, who has more technology than we have, who has more planes and bombs and whoever, whatever, whatever, who has more money than we have, we print our own money.

00:38:45--> 00:38:55

I don't need to have money in the bank because I print my money and the world accepts the money which I print. Even though the world knows I'm just printing it well. There's no basis to that money. There's nothing behind the money but the world accepts it.

00:38:57--> 00:39:02

So who can touch me, who is stronger than I am who is wealthier than I am who is richer than I

00:39:03--> 00:39:06

am Allah subhanaw taala told us, Allah showed us.

00:39:09--> 00:39:33

Allah showed us who is richer, who is wealthier, who in with one stroke and this is the, this is the holder of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah does not send a army of angels to stop our life and to and to hit us against a wall like that and stop us dead Allah sends one single any virus, which cannot even be seen with the naked eye.

00:39:35--> 00:39:37

Which can even be seen under normal microscope.

00:39:40--> 00:39:52

And all our science and all our technology and all the knowledge that we were so arrogant about all the technology was worrying about all the weapons and all the planes and all the armies and all the money, everything, everything everything

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

became completely null and void

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

All we could do was to hide stains.

00:40:05--> 00:40:17

We ask Allah to relieve us from this, we ask Allah to enable us to see the science and to recognize him and to submit to Him. My brothers and sisters make lots and lots and lots of mistakes. only and only Allah can save us.

00:40:18--> 00:40:21

Only Allah consumers make a lot of stuff.

00:40:22--> 00:40:35

Make sure that you put your life in order I put my life in order make sure that we help people. We give a lot of charity because we need to call the anger of Allah subhanaw taala and what caused the anger of Allah charity calls and rapala snapper

00:40:37--> 00:40:44

Put your hand in your pocket and take out that money and give it in charity otherwise Allah will make you spend it in hospital bills.

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

Understand that?

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

Right.

00:40:51--> 00:40:54

Consider that charity to be your life insurance.

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

spend our money in charity

00:41:01--> 00:41:02

and do that now.

00:41:04--> 00:41:14

We ask Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah to enable us to see his science to glorify Him to do to do to thank him and to be

00:41:15--> 00:41:29

to be obedient to Him and to worship Him in the way that suits His Majesty and grace Salahuddin Abdul Karim Allah He was saphenous vein bharathiar salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
