Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad Muhammad Ali who was suffering when we are in our prisons due to Allah subhanaw taala and makes peace and blessings be upon the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his noble family, righteous companions, and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the day of judgment. I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, as salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh we are living through difficult times we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us patience, and to cure the sick and to protect those who have not been afflicted with this deadly disease. However, in every

00:00:39 --> 00:01:22

adversity, we find true opportunity. And this is an unprecedented opportunity for some massive reward. In an incredible Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which people are circulating, and also seem to have some questions about in a part of this hadith the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, for a seminar then yokkao No femme Christofi Bella Hisar Baron, ja Alonso Anna Hulan usuba Who inland Kitab Allahu Allah, in Lucca and Allahu Mithra, a Jewish Shahid in this hadith our mother had a Chateau de la Mancha was asking him SallAllahu Sallam about a pound,

00:01:23 --> 00:01:33

properly translated as the plague, and can also mean plagues in general or infectious diseases. And this is something that the scholars of Hadith have confirmed.

00:01:35 --> 00:01:45

The Prophet informed her that this was a punishment that Allah subhanaw taala sent upon whomever He willed, but that it was a mercy for the believers.

00:01:47 --> 00:02:12

And thus, if a plague were to strike, that anyone that stayed in their city or country, exercising patience, knowing that nothing will be for them except that which Allah subhanaw taala decreed. They will have a reward similar to the reward of a shahid, love workabout. So let us say a few things about this hadith.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:31

Number one, it's an authentic hadith and it is reported by Imam Al Bukhari and this is his narration. It is also reported by an imam in necessity, and Imam Ahmed, but with the addition of the word Mortis even meaning seeking the reward of Allah subhanahu wata Isla,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:40

in one of the two narrations by Imam Muhammad, he mentioned staying in their house or home

00:02:42 --> 00:03:11

for Felisa, and then Youngquist, will Phoebe et he Cybertron Martha's even taking into consideration that the narrator of this hadith is an issue of the Allahu anha in all of the narrations? It seems plausible that the correct wording is for him, Kofi Bella de hisab, Iran staying in their city or country. This is important because it elucidates the context of the Hadith of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam

00:03:12 --> 00:03:56

in that he was telling people to stay put to not leave their city or country because then this would help in spreading disease outside the location that was the epicenter of the disease. And this is similar to the authentic hadith of the prophets of salaam where he told the Sahaba if you hear of a plague, in a location in a certain city, and you are outside it, do not enter it. And if you are inside that location, do not leave, stay where you are. The Prophet sallallahu sallam was teaching us the concept of self quarantine way back 14 centuries ago.

00:03:57 --> 00:04:02

The importance of staying put and not moving around in order to help

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

curb the spread of the disease. And therefore, of course, we know the situation is a little bit different today because the Coronavirus has become a pandemic has become global. So leaving your country or city to avoid it seems meaningless. And thus my brothers and sisters a purification of intention is in order. We have to think that we are heeding the prophetic injunction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in trying to stay put as much as possible, such that even if we suppose hypothetically, that we are the only people that have been struck with this disease, despite that, even if I am able to leave, I would not leave because I am heeding the prophetic in

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

junction, son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and therefore I am exercising patience, I am staying where I am, and I am not going to leave I'm not going to flee because I know that this is the other of Allah subhanho wa taala. Of course this doesn't mean that I'm going to do everything in my capacity to avoid the Coronavirus. We are taking all of the means necessary, but we know that in the end, it is the color of Allah subhanahu wa taala.

00:05:31 --> 00:06:13

And one then may ask, How can stink put be equal to the reward of a shahid? This is because when you are doing so when you are not leaving, even if hypothetically, you had the opportunity to leave, and possibly to escape this epidemic, when you stay put in order not to spread the disease to others, and to make it worse than it already is. It is a type of self sacrifice. And in that sense, it is similar to shahada and thus they will have the reward of a Shaheed Allahu Akbar. Having said that,

00:06:14 --> 00:06:40

the Hadith mentions three conditions, exercising patience, meaning we're not consistently complaining about this epidemic, constantly being anxious we're trying to display patience. The second condition is seeking the reward of Allah subhanho wa taala. We know that there is much reward in being patient in staying put. And thirdly,

00:06:41 --> 00:07:26

the firm conviction that this is the header of Allah subhanaw taala Wallahi my brothers and sisters, I am doing everything I can and I'm sure you are taking other precautions as well. Instinct put in not leaving in social distancing in this infecting the house and maybe even the items that you are buying from outside. We are doing everything we can but if it is the color of Allah subhanaw taala we know for a fact that it is going to occur and that we may contract this disease may Allah subhanaw taala protect us. And if hypothetically someone is not taking all of these precautions, May Allah guide us all. Not taking the means necessary and Allah has not decreed that they would be

00:07:26 --> 00:08:15

afflicted by this disease will lie they will not be touched by the Coronavirus. It is the color of Allah subhanaw taala and the end, but Allah subhanaw taala and the prophets our Salem has instructed us to take all of the means necessary and all of the precautions and insha Allah by the will of Allah subhanaw taala we will be successful, and hopefully we will not contract the disease. Several important things need to be said about this hadith. One may ask, Does this mean that if a person contracts the Coronavirus and lives through it, they will still have this reward they will still be like a shahid the correct opinion is that even if you contract it and insha Allah you live through

00:08:15 --> 00:08:56

it and you are cured of it, you will still have this reward. Furthermore, and what is even more amazing Subhanallah and are inspiring is that even if you do not contract this disease, but you fulfill the above mentioned conditions, God Willing and sha Allah, you will have this reward. How Subhanallah even if I don't get the Coronavirus, I'm just sitting at home I'm just doing what I'm doing. I'm living my life normally I don't contract it. Yes. And this is these cases were mentioned and affirmed by an imam of an agile as Kalani when he was talking about this hadith

00:08:57 --> 00:09:48

because if you contract the Coronavirus, and you die of it, God forbid you do not have the reward of the shade. You will have the status of a Shaheed and this is why he highlighted the distinction between the reward of Ushahidi and the status of a Shaheen. We know from the other authentic hadith, that if a person contracts this disease and dies of it, God willing in sha Allah, they will have the status of Shaheen, even though this is obviously less than the status of a Shaheen during battle. But the Prophet SAW Selim said in the authentic hadith will not ruin OSHA heed the one who is who contracts or is afflicted by a par own by any infectious disease or a our own the plague proper that

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

they will have the status of a Shaheed but here the prophets hadith is mentioning the reward of a Shaheed so necessarily this is talking about

00:10:00 --> 00:10:49

The other two possibilities where if you whereby if you contract the disease and even if you are cured of it, if you fulfill the abovementioned conditions, you will have the reward of Ushahidi insha, Allah and even if you do not contract the Coronavirus at all God willing and Allah's Bounty is great, you will have the reward of a Shaheed, my brothers and sisters, this is a unique opportunity and an opportunity we may not get again. And many people may not have the opportunity of having shahada, the status of shahada, or the reward of Shahada. All we have to do now is to purify our intention and to correct it, and in sha Allah if we do so. And we have the firm conviction that

00:10:50 --> 00:11:29

whatever afflicts us is only why the will and decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala and no matter what happens, it is the will of Allah subhanaw taala whether we contract it or not, whether we live through it or not. In sha Allah, we can have the reward of Ushahidi, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to assist us in doing so, and to protect us and our families. Insha Allah, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make a strong and firm in faith, Baraka Luffy como SallAllahu wasallam, Alberta, Canada venum hamadryad earliest tourbillion was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
