are relying on shikamaru teams no man are human. How many lie on the line? I mean, was salatu salam ala should have been more discerning syedna Mohammed one early he also here's mine, my beloved brothers and sisters and his family said Mr. Lai, abraca to blah blah mean or praise and thanks in worship Allah subhanho wa Taala Lord and Master of the Universe, the shadow Allah, Allah, Allah will witness that none has the right of worship besides the last panel data, we send our greetings and love interpretations development, every Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is pious and your family to his companions and all those who follow is from now until the end of time, we see the line

this time of hardship we beseech Allah collectively Allah alleviate us from the stipulation the states that you have put before us, grant us to be for this, this to be averted from us smaller keep us and our families and our loved ones safe. our health, our risk of sustenance, our bodies, our demand, most and foremost, our demand was part of that to protect all of us all together, my love mercy on those who are going through hardship and alleviate the suffering of Allah have mercy on those who have passed away. And Allah subhanho wa Taala bring us through this this better people and meet in those soon beat nilaya along with from the relapse today is the third of April 2020. It is

00:01:09--> 00:01:44

the for us here in Cape Town. It is one week into the lockdown that we've experienced. It is the third tomorrow's panel now that the masajid have been have been closed. And just on that point, many people wouldn't married Hadeeth with Rob solicit the person who neglects to That's not the thing, three tumors in Iraq consecutively. Then the severe is as if though he says he's excommunicated from Islam. It's one of those severe things. Please note that we have not missed a Juma for all those of us who would have loved to be in the masjid who would have been in the masjid had it not been for the closure, then of course this is out of our hands, our last panel database Nila will give us an

00:01:44--> 00:02:20

even better tomorrow than the one that we have attended. So at home, you're making your door there is no other doesn't mean when the markets open make these tumors up, in fact to be certain for us what hamdulillah. So it's been three weeks that we've not been able to be together we've watched as this pandemic has spread. It is something which is foremost on our minds and spinal. We've seen that this, the number of infections globally has reached 1 million now. And this is a big milestone. And the rate as we can see is increasing continuously. More than 50,000 people have died. I'm sure you're familiar with the numbers here in South Africa for as 100. Now we've been fortunate so far,

00:02:21--> 00:03:01

it has been quieter than expected. And we pray that we are we have been fortunate in this regard. On the other hand, we need to prepare for the worst, as many of the doctors around the world have said you have this period of calm with the hospitals or empty people are not coming to the hospitals unless it's an emergency. And so you'll find that the hospitals are empty, bracing themselves for one on one all the B level are predicted this influx of sick people. And we hope that South Africa is finally we will be speed this the worst of it. We know that there are many, many people that are not able to, to protect themselves. There are many people there are many people who have compromised

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

immune systems. So those of us who

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

you know we continue making our do and will continue taking the precautions we need to do our best and then believe the meta in Allah's hands. And without a doubt, you know, watching this event this crisis unfold. This is the greatest test globally for us as as people, certainly for the last 5060 years since World War Two. This is the greatest challenge seen countries coming to a halt. And therefore for us, it's something that we need to take, take take very, very seriously. Without without a doubt this is a test it's a tribulation. And this would advise about how do we respond to this? How do we you know, process this and move forward from there. And the sixth surah of the

00:03:45--> 00:04:22

Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives a number of verses very interesting verses that are so applicable to us we read these verses time and time again. But now that we in it, we understand. So let's consistence in IRA number 40 of pseudo Nam, Allah says, cool item in attack kumada bommai attacked comosa Allah says have you say have you considered Have you thought, if the, if a punishment of Allah was to come upon us, or even the sour meaning Chioma itself would to come a rate of light and everyone including from Saudi, would you then turn to anyone and beseech anyone and ask for assistance from anyone besides Allah, the Master of the Universe? Would you go back to anyone?

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

Allah answers is Isabel el, that are all now the actual matter only in Shia, with until no matter shake when Allah says, surely you will have answers that in times of hardship, in times of extreme calamity, you will turn back and ask Allah alone. And this what's beautiful about this idea is always speaking to both the Muslim and non Muslim, the one who committed she's the one who has never ever turned to Allah. Allah says if you neglected me your entire life and now that you see the punishment or even the SAR, Allah says, you come in and you turn to me for actually for my to the owner, Eli will only move overseas, I promise you I will remove that

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

Which you asked me to remove, I will take it away I will remove this virus insya if I choose So, with unsewn I'm actually gone and you will surely forget all those things that you have prioritized all the partners you've made with Allah, you will forget them and hopefully you will come back to Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala continues and this is what I call it. arsena Isla macabre Lika, that surely many, many times too many nations before you before us Allah has sent messengers and books for us now humble But sir, he was the raw de la lomita Ratan Allah says and we seize them we took hold of them with misfortune, with calamity, with hardship with poverty, all kinds of misfortune

00:05:41--> 00:06:20

almost is the are many countless nations before you that experienced hardship that Allah sent to them. Why? And this is the reason why I was you know, it's a profound reason also to allow me at our own so that they may humble themselves so that they may come back down to earth, so that they may remember Allah subhanaw taala The purpose was never to cause pain, the purpose was never to to inflict harm, it was meant as as something positive that they may come back to Allah when Allah continues, if we do not come back what is the consequence was his falola integer sooner for dot row? So why even if they did not, did they not come back? Did you not humble themselves when the

00:06:20--> 00:06:58

punishment or the tribulation befall them when this hardship came to them when Allah sent in this hardship they did not come back? Well, I can cause a total boom. And then on the other hand, instead of coming back to Allah, the hearts the hearts became hard and it became sealed was in an oval shape on my candle Yeah, I'm in shape one made it seem that which they were doing as trivial as small they did not realize the reminder almost seemingly reminded to change their lifestyles. But if you've not changed, they continue as it was. And so Allah says, number one, based on that the hearts became sealed off became hard for them manasu analysis and when they forgot, they did not take heed mirvac

00:06:58--> 00:07:41

he will be he will take heed of the reminder that we seem to them somehow no Look how Allah Subhana Allah punishes Allah says he punishes fatahna la Ababa Kula Shea in Allah says, When I opened up for them, all the doors of everything mean all kinds of good and money and luxury and enjoyment, all of this, I opened it completely for him had either a father who Bhima who, until that they enjoy themselves, they were at the height of the immune amusement and happiness have now been bothan. For either at home or at school, we seize them at that moment of, of complete forgetfulness in enjoying the money enjoying the wealth, feeling or pump and powerful, all this is at that point I seize them,

00:07:41--> 00:08:22

meaning was paranoia took him caused him to die for either movies, and then then two weeks they become the spearing. Now this is this this group of is a very, very significant for us. What we learn is a principle with Allah subhanaw taala. That when we, when we forget about him, that when we turn away when we live a life that is heedless, Allah does not hold us account immediately at all the sins reminders, and sometimes the reminders are small in all of us our lives, we see relatives that pass away, we should be reminded with you know, every time we get sick, we should be reminded of, you know, of our health, about about teeth, every time we go past the cemetery. We know this

00:08:22--> 00:08:56

we're going to end up we should be reminded by these things. We listen to the hottie we get a lecture. And it reminds us sometimes we don't take heed of the reminder. And then Allah subhanaw taala sins, bigger reminders for us here in South Africa. For example, year two ago, we had the drought and the shoot of you know, what should have been a wake up call for many of us. And really, and sometimes this is really at the mercy of Allah. He sends a global reminder and this from Hanalei, as we said he's one of the biggest events that we've seen in the last 50 6070 years. And this when you see the entire world shutting down, Allah says this is a reminder about almost Granger

00:08:56--> 00:09:34

it's a reminder about the purpose of life, it's a reminder for everyone to look at our lives and reassess Are we on the right path? are we are we continue as we were, are we are we going to end up and so it's up to us to see how we respond almost is when we respond by humbling ourselves and besieging him and turning back to him he says, I will remove that which is that hardship. Its purpose was to remind you when you when you remember that Allah will remove it, no problem. But if we do not take heed, and we read our lives continue as it was, we continue enjoying ourselves we continue living the life that we were always doing. Then Allah says he will Unfortunately, he will

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

close our hearts have seen it, he will make us follow shaker will make it seem like our lives, our sins are small, and then Allah will open up all the doors of goodness and all the enjoyment and this actually is a worst punishment. So this is shows you the set of eyes shows you that a tribulation might actually be a blessing and a a you know the opening of goodness of Baraka Baraka, the opening of money and wealth and power this month.

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

Should it be a punishment? So how we respond and how we come out of it is really important. All of us have been tested, we are sitting in an exam, and this Coronavirus is a test that we're all taking together, how we respond now is really the answer is really the important part for us to do. So how should we, how should we respond to this?

00:10:20--> 00:10:59

So number one, of course, we have to increase in Nevada as losses, we will return back to any make we we increase in Nevada, and we'll talk more about that inshallah. Number two, what's important is for us to, to avoid sin, we have to all of us collectively must be you know, I speak to myself first and foremost, and my family, we need to look at our lives, none of us are perfect. Some of the some of the even the best of us can improve, and even the worst of us, this opportunity to get close to Allah. And so we should look at our lives and try to avoid the sense that we didn't have the love this, what was it? what's what's what's wonderful about the situation is Allah has caused many of

00:10:59--> 00:11:37

the Haram things that we're doing to automatically be closed down, we can't go out we can't go to places which are harming more insects. panela we very proud and maybe, you know, it's vital. Maybe this is the reason why. So Africa at the moment, our our curve is not as high as we expected. One of the reasons could be that's planula We're the only country in the world that completely banned alcohol during this time. So immediately, we see this, of course, it wasn't taken from an Islamic perspective. But as a this is pleasing to Allah that society turns away from something which displeases Allah. And we pray that this is one of the reasons why that these that we are not seeing

00:11:37--> 00:11:57

the full effects of this. So Allah has made it easy for us, given back our time given back our family time that we can increasingly bother and avoid, avoid the sins that we we do. The ease, of course, an opportunity now that we see an increase in certain sense that we weren't doing before. So now we at home, all of the things that we do

00:11:59--> 00:12:39

have the big sense that you could do now is of course not following the instructions putting other people's lives in danger. This is a major sin really to go out against the instructions of the of the government the instructions of the people, anyone who does this without a valid reason, wins final idea you're sending. Number two, you see the world our lives, our physical lives are limited. Our social life, our digital lives are really getting out of control. And through this past week, I've received so many disturbing messages, you know, fake news, false Hadith, false interpretations of the Quran, distorting the words of Allah to conspiracy theories. And so people are falling into,

00:12:39--> 00:13:20

into into errors with regards to with regards to social media and the digital, the digital footprint and we are now actually sending online, even though physically we might not be sending our physical bodies, but online, we're doing many things too. So just take these ayat, and these Heidi's into accounts of number one spreading false information fake news funnel, I don't know why some people go through the effort to actually type up something which is false or recorder mysterious false, and they see it and cause mess, harm in what they're doing. And others simply receive it without assessing it without verifying it, they amplify it and they pass on Allah says to you and me Oh, you

00:13:20--> 00:14:00

will believe if asked if a untrusted or an evil person or someone that you cannot trust comes to you with any news thing verified, first verified Allah standing in the Quran is your responsibility, whether you get a hadith whether you get a lecture, whether you get anything medical related, first verify if it's true or not. least you should harm people in ignorance. And afterwards, you become very grateful for what you've done. And when you will, when you share that on, you will harm people and Subhanallah you can actually cause people to die by sending out incorrect information. So this is called command from a lot of medicine, to share false news even without email or even, you know,

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

unintentionally, but you did not you did not verify it. The professor solemn says to us a hadith which by now I'm sure many of you have heard many, many scholars are repeating this hadith time and time again. Because what we do is we forward as received forwarders receive without assisting without testing it without you know checking it out if it's true or not. The profit is easy enough for someone to be considered a liar. By simply sharing or speaking, everything that hears anything you receive, you just convey it and relay it without verifying it without processing it. It is enough for you to become a liar like that. So be very, very careful what you say. Allah has given us

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

a golden opportunity to take away meaning of the harm that we we interact physically the places we go to the people we see, Allah is confined to our homes which are safe. Now the one place which is really dangerous is our cell phones in particular our our TVs, our laptops, shut those things down avoided. Use it only for good things and inshallah immunity don't have much

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

her arm around you see, normal of the allowance is a very profound statement. So profound I felt that even have to I don't really, really update my Facebook status. But this, this this this statement from him was so profound that I felt, you know, it's amazing when you find a previous predecessors, they go through similar stuff like us and he says, take a lot of key and caution in times of tribulation. Be very careful because if you say an incorrect word during tribulation during a crisis, it can be as devastating as a sword, something you put out there can cause such a panic or cause such a some other person to believe that someone could die in this in this tribulation, and

00:15:39--> 00:15:53

you'll be held accountable for that. So be very, very careful what you receive and what you share. There is no harm in you're not cheating it you will not be held accountable for what you do not cheat. So if you feel it's safe, I don't want to share things even better for you. We've nilla

00:15:54--> 00:16:33

so that is with regards to fake news and false information we receive I've also received lots of people sending me videos or audios about conspiracy theories that that is a greater plot that this is part of a great scheme. All of this is fake what you see on the news, there isn't such thing as Coronavirus, people have gone so far to say that the entire thing is a made up thing all the governments of the world or the hospitals are in it together. And there's so many theories about about what this is Swan lump, you know, you have to verify the information that you're sharing, you have to verify it. And if you are sharing something of an Islamic nature, make sure you are either

00:16:33--> 00:17:11

you are yourself an expert in that in what you're watching or you are trusted. And if you are seeing things of a dunya and nature, so people are telling you, for example, eat this or drink that and it will it will kill Coronavirus, or that this thing does not harm you or somebody else, you know the Wi Fi or the 5g of these is causing harm, I don't want to get into the 5g conspiracy theory out there. Educate yourself with regards to the dunya. And it's not enough for you to watch a YouTube video to be educated, go and study and learn some of either the junior sciences or the Islamic sciences before you share these things because you are causing harm in what you're saying. You're

00:17:11--> 00:17:50

causing harm in what you're saying these conspiracy theories panela. Sometimes people get so caught up in it, that they become detached from reality, and that they actually cause more harm and can actually result in death. So be careful about these conspiracy theories in times of tribulation, you know, the professor solemn reminds us and He gives us certain guidance with regards to times of tribulation. And he says that in a Halloween party that the one who remains out of the tribulation who stays at home The one who sets is better the one who stands the one who stands is with no one who is walking and running, that if you stay at home, if you stay indoors, you stay avoid the

00:17:50--> 00:18:27

tribulation, it is better for you and anyone who exposes himself to it, who gets involved in it, whether physically or online, you will be sucked into it and you will be harmed by to avoid these things, avoid these discussions and save yourself and look after yourself. And that is what is required of you in times of tribulation. One of the big big themes that I'm getting in terms of these conspiracy theories are these question marks you've been Hadeeth and I add that are being shared and people are asking is this Kiana is this always seen the coming the end of times I'm always seeing the end of times. And so part of my lecture today is to talk a little bit about Kiana

00:18:28--> 00:19:00

you know is this kiama How serious is this as a as a sign from Allah so don't doubt it is a tribulation is a reminder from Allah. It is something for us to take note of is serious. It's not something that we should just ignore. It's not everyday we see something like this. But it's enough for us to even go to that point because I've seen a video club recirculating that saying that when you know before kiama arrived, hygiene will stop and morale will stop and now spinalonga seen the Saudi government is closed the harms there is no more immoral, there's no more hygiene. So clearly this is an indication that kiama is coming. You watch the five minute clip part of a much bigger

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

video clip a part of a much bigger discussion. This is not the first time that the hygiene Amara has been suspended as you read history, you'll find this happening before. So it's for us to be a little more critical in what we receive. But this happened before. Abdullah was one of the very, very early converts of Islam of the prospect passed away he settled in, in Kufa, in in Iraq. And he was with the students in his house and then on one of the days a a raid Sandstorm, you know very strange kind of sandstone blew over the city and the entire sky turned read. And one of the person one of the students sitting they jumped up and he said The hour has come this is kiama Look at the sky, you

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

know, the world is coming to an end. And he was sitting reclining, he was relaxing. And then he stepped forward. And he said, this is not the end of the world. This is not the last hour. Rather, a few things need to happen before kiama comes. Let's before we talk about karma, let's understand what we know from the Hadeeth What do we know about karma and then we can assess Is this something

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

We should worry about the least kiama. So the Lord knows all that on your lawn then explains to the his, his students, that there are science sort of steps that must be reached milestones that must be reached before the coming of kiama the end of the world. And some of those signs up clearly they have come, clearly they have passed, we are beyond them, and others are still to come. So of the signs of kiama. We know that kiama is close, when the promised alum, when he arrived when he was commissioned with his Nova, he told us that me and the advent of kiama is like this and he raised his hand he put together his index finger, and he's middle finger, meaning he put them together the

00:20:38--> 00:21:15

different the difference between those two fingers is me and kiama qiyamah and I are very, very close together. In the Quran, Allah says that the moon has flipped and Messiah has come near one of the big signs of the coming of km was that the moon was split in half in the in the time of Allah. Another big sign of the advent of karma is the death of Navy SEALs for them. And the end of Revelation. Remember this entire, you know, the entire purpose of life from the beginning of Navy Adam until the last man was that Allah will send us revelation will send us books, to guide us to turn us back to him. The fact that this entire system of revelation came to an end with the demise

00:21:15--> 00:21:53

of the Navy. So Sonam tells us we are at the end of the story. We are really at the last chapter of mankind. And it's been 1400 years since that happened. Other signs and abuses on you know signs that the prophets have predicted that said before Kiana, what would happen we would come to Jerusalem. This happened in the timeless harbor that Persia would be conquered that Constantinople, Istanbul would be conquered that was the biggest city in the world. And it was conquered about six 700 years ago by the Ottoman Empire. There are also many, many minus signs many of us must have heard this before. There's a whole genre of Islamic knowledge which talks about the minus signs. In a very

00:21:53--> 00:22:34

famous Hadith above Salam comm is asked by GBT, LGBT Austin, and he's also level when is kiama gonna come? And the Prophet says neither you, nor I, we both don't know when qiyamah is going to come it is something which is hidden, and only Allah knows the coming of kiama. But Allah has given us hints or signs to remind us or to make us aware of the coming up of pm. And there are many, many dozens, many dozens of minus signs of the problem, as predicted of them. For example, He says the owl will not be established until the Arabs are the beta when people will compete in building very tall buildings as a very explicit sign of gamma is also something very relevant to us knowing that in the

00:22:34--> 00:23:12

Middle East today, they'll call us buildings in the world or the the provinces allowances of the signs of kamma is that lying, particularly in business transactions will become very commonplace, it will become the norm and the markets will become very close together. No, the markets will become very congested and close together. The profits is the outcome until time, the value of time or the time appears to go very quickly. Meaning a year will pass like just a month so much things would happen within a year that he can seem like he just flew by and all of us can relate to that. The prophets of Salaam says from the signs of the hour is that knowledge will diminish that great

00:23:12--> 00:23:51

scholars will die ignorance will prevail it will be such a mess scale of ignorance, even though they will be reading people can look at it, but they will be ignorant of the Dean of the dunya you will find fornication. Zina will be open will be prevalent wherever you look for and never have we lived in a time we with a click of a button we can see everything we can be you know, anything that you want to see. It's in the palm of your hand literally spinal, no nation, no group of people in the history of mankind experienced what we are experienced in that. And of course, not all of these things are bad of the things that we associate that you'd find that women increase more than that of

00:23:51--> 00:24:26

men is not a negative sign of Gambia some positive signs of the coming of Canada like the conquest of Jerusalem. So good things, one of the things also that there will be more women than men up to the point of 50 to one in terms of this Hadith, we have not reached that benchmark. Another very clear sign of km of the prophets on says mosques will be beautified will be made very beautiful and the voices will be raised in it will be amplified in it. This could be talking about the microphones and the speakers that we have another sign the proficiencies that the Muslims will be vast in number they will be you know towards in every corner of the wall to find the oma but the value of the

00:24:26--> 00:24:59

Muslim are very weak like the foaming the seat will be pushed down and our lands will be invaded by our enemies and they will take from our resources and take from our lands like birds eating and this law we see it and this is perhaps was more prevalent in the title the colonists colonizers, you know a century or two ago, the prophet speaks about a time when the Riba will become so rampant that even those who don't indulge in it will be exposed to which harm it's smoke that the time will come close to kiama. When we will not have a Jama they will no longer be a unified oma and we will not have

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

Leader. And we know that since the demise of the Ottoman Empire, about 100 years ago, for the first time in our history, we have not had a halifa. This is these are big, big signs that are occurring. There are other signs that are very cryptic a lot on what they mean, they could be speaking about our time they could be speaking about another time, for example, the resistance is close to the time of kamma, people will come to the masjid arriving, very comfortable settles, and they will dismount at the door of the magic, you know, they will they would travel in a very comfortable form of transportation. Could this because Allah Allah, and the Prophet silences, the women of that time,

00:25:36--> 00:26:12

they will be wearing clothing, but they will be naked again before if you look at the pictures of people the way they dress up. And for the last 5060 years, we haven't seen the level of nakedness as we see today. The proficiencies in by him in whose hand my life is the our must be established until the beasts and people will communicate animals. So there's something which perhaps has not yet occurred and the end of a man's work and he shoelace any spy will be able to speak to him. So, you will have a device where he will be able to communicate with his family at home in his absence, could this be a cell phone Could this be talking about you know, wireless communication allow them

00:26:12--> 00:26:48

this is something which is in the Hadeeth. So very clear on science, which is talking about now, those are all the minor signs of the many, many more minor signs, some of them which have clearly occurred, most of them actually have occurred, or we see them being prevalent, and there are a few are quite a number of them that have not yet occurred. For example, the there will be some great treasure that is found in the Euphrates River This is something which has spoken about has not yet occurred. The a few other minor signs that have not occurred, then of course, there is the major major signs of kmm. They are teen big signs, when they come there is no doubt that the kiama is

00:26:48--> 00:27:29

basically at hand. And that when these come these things size of kiama they are like Heidi speaks about like a pregnant woman on the verge of giving birth. So this is when you see these 10 signs know that the end of the world is is it's a it's a concrete, it's a foregone conclusion. And these 10 signs, the promise was his piano will never occur until you see 10 signs. Number one, and this is not an order the Sahabi listed them as he remembered them but they're not in the order. So the smoke, they will be a smoke that will come the the coming of the jail, the coming of a beast of the earth, the rising of the sun from the waist, the descent of the east of the return of the Messiah,

00:27:30--> 00:28:04

the release of a huge amount of damage. And in three big landslides are three big you know, sinkholes that will occur in the world, one in the east, one in the West, and one in the Middle East. And then there will be a loss of the sciences a huge fire that will push the remainder of humanity to a certain to a certain area. And once they occur, they will come down like beads. Now if we go back to that Hadith of the looming sued, remember we spoke about the Hadith we even was under the law and was sitting with the students and the sky became read and one of the students jumped up and he said yeah, like it's kiama. And Abdullah said, No, it's not. It's not chiama. And then he

00:28:04--> 00:28:44

went on to explain some of the things that must occur here. So avoid Massoud first began in the speech spoke about that they will be tribulation spoke about they will be a great war in the Middle East, particularly in Syria and Iraq with European people. And from that we know many other Heidi 1000s that they that they will be a common time in the oma is this united, they are divided. There will be a lot of conflicts happening in the Middle East. And then we will have a leader. And so the leader will arise is called Mr. Modi. And he will you know, the army of Mr. mamani will fight with the Europeans. And he will be successful in defeating this great army in the Middle East. And a lot

00:28:44--> 00:29:19

of the conflict or the conflict that the Hadith speak about is happening in Syria and in the in the Palestine area. And it's you know, could this be similar to the conflict we see today, this area has always had battles, it could be something which is now it could be something happening in 50 years, or it could be in 100,000 years. Allah Allah Allah knows best. But in this area, there will be a great, great war called the Valhalla or the the great Greek war that will occur in the Middle East. And Mr. Malley will be in charge of that time, the Muslims will win you and Maddie will win, but then the gel will be released and the gel will be released and he will remain for 4040 days one day

00:29:19--> 00:29:51

will be like a year one they will be like a month one they will be like a week and the other remaining days will be normal base with digests. And this will be the biggest weakness there'll be no tribulation worse than the job just the worst worst thing that will be for mankind, the coming of the job, and he will remain on the earth and he will cause mischief and havoc and lead people astray. So I'm not we look at this crisis and how people are completely confused. People are in hysteria. Imagine when the gel comes a lot a lot protectors and then following the gel soon after his coming Allah will seem to be Isa now also in serious Panama everything happening so you're not

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

alone. Make it easy for that land that is going through so much at the moment. And maybe Isa will be will come down. He will defeat the jail and the Messiah the age of the Messiah will be

00:30:00--> 00:30:32

Again, you will all for seven years, and it will be the best years. You know, in terms of the history of the world, there'll be no fighting anymore, there'll be no animosity, the whole world will be under one religion, and he will all the entire world and be easily stolen. And it will be peace and prosperity for seven years. And when he Judah majority will be will be released from the area, they will break through the barrier, and they will completely destroy the world and all of humanity will will perish basically, at the hand, except for the very few people that will survive with a hiding away, including their big salaries from the Messiah, and a few of his people will will

00:30:32--> 00:31:10

survive, and then the majority will be killed by loss and through a disease, basically, a small disease, a tiny disease will will destroy them and kill them. And then they'll be so well and the remainder of the believers and the people will come out and humanity will begin again slowly. And then at some point a breeze and this could be the smoke which speaks about in the Quran, one of the signs of kiama a smoke will come and will take the souls of those who have aemon that there is none left. Even in the biblical scriptures. They talk about the rapture, where this breeze will come and the believers will be taken away. And then what is left of humanity will just be the worst of the

00:31:10--> 00:31:47

worst and then kiama will only come upon the worst of people and so the prophets of Salaam in a hadith he systems are harbor that Kiana will not come until people return to idol worship. And all of us harbor says but is it not that Islam will prevail in the Middle East? That is not that Islam will, you know will remove idol worship and the promise of is yes, it will happen. But eventually things will occur that will result in all the believers dying, this breed will come and what would you be remaining is only the worst of people. And it's upon them that the Trumpet will be blown. And that would be the that is when chiamo would come so often obese. And after the believers have taken

00:31:47--> 00:32:22

away through this, this varies, the rest of the signs of km will be experienced by people that will no longer remember Allah will not worship Allah anymore. And so these are basically the steps. So if we look at this virus Subhanallah it is surely one of the big events that we need to take note of it is something for us a personal reminder, is it one of the signs mentioned in the Hadith is no sign of the Hadith that speaks about this. But it is the Prophet of the genres of the Hadith, you find the resources as we reach closer to keyerror. We have more and more of these big tribulations that affect the whole of humanity, they become more frequent. And this is of course, setting the stage

00:32:22--> 00:32:59

for the coming up of the journal becoming an MBE. So we'll be seeing a lot predict. point is this is not chiama or not quite yet. And however, asking with keyamo not is besides what is important. Does it even matter if this is kiama? So we have had a man come to the chromosome and he says the iris will tell me about keyamo winsky, I'm willing to come and the professor says to one of these people, probably some offset to him. What have you prepared for kiama? probably didn't answer him. He says What are you prepared? Are you ready for here? My key I'm going to come? How much good deeds have you done? How many? How much is different? Have you made? Are you ready for it? What changes

00:32:59--> 00:33:36

basically, if you work here, in another Heidi's proximity to a man, Austin winsky I'm a prophet says look at the youngest, the smallest child in the group. When that child grows up to become an old man, look at your children and look at the youngest child that you have. When that baby grows up to being an old man. For ukm I would have come because it matters of Allah. If kiama comes in 50 years from now, the gel comes in 10 years continuous time. But you die tomorrow I die today. Allah protect us. What difference does it make, we mean the copper when for you and for me, our karma has come, the nature of the cyst of life remains the same. Ultimately it is your Salah, it is your fasting, it

00:33:36--> 00:34:09

isn't being a good person to your family, being a good person to your neighbors, being good to your community. Those are the things that is ultimately what this life is all about. And also how about understood that spinalonga chose you the thick and the understanding was a harbor when the Prophet spoke to them about the gel. The first question wasn't about how does he look and read as he can come from and what how does he have these powers? The first thing that actually asked him was how do we make Salah if he's going to destroy time if one day's gonna be like a year? How do we make Salah because they understood the priority is to worship Allah. And so if this were the end for us, it's

00:34:09--> 00:34:44

something that we should think about you and I should think about this is at the end, this is something that maybe it's not the end of time, but it's the infamy there's a disease molecule that could affect me, do I have my face in order? So, you know, someone comes to the doctor and says, comes to the ship and says I've just been diagnosed with terminal cancer, you know, kill me I only have a few days to live a few weeks ago. Would you advice to give me on now everyone should put the affairs in order, any duties any things you owe to Allah in terms of Salah in terms of fasting, in terms of dates in terms of the car, these things must be discharged we need to get right our books

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

and accountable Allah, any debts we owe to any person, our world and these kind of things. These need to be set in order. We need to make a step far and tober. We have four sons on our scales, we can remove them now. SubhanAllah we can go to Allah son free son

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

Through Tobin is the farthest along as we still breathing and alive, the doors of Tobin is still available to us. Any person that you have harmed or hurt these kinds of events or reminders that's final, I need to pick up the phone and speak to my, my brother, my mother, my whoever it might be an awful mouth off that no one holds any grudge against me rather, sorted out Now, before we have to sort this out on the day of km multiprotect s.

00:35:26--> 00:36:01

Once a hobby asked them abusers on quite a bit about their child and all these things that the prophet SAW said to him, you always ask these things. What is the matter with you, and so that this hobby says, You make a mention of the journal in the morning, and you speak about him so much that describing him, sometimes he seems very important. And other times he seems very insignificant, sometimes we feel like the job is going to jump out of the trees. And other times. You don't give him much priority. We also have he wants to understand this. And so the problems with currencies, I there are things that I fear for you more important than the job they are much bigger things I worry

00:36:01--> 00:36:39

about you about reading, then the jelt. And it's about the priorities of life worrying about the job and the warning of the signs of kamma. Sometimes these things are a distraction. They keep us away from what is important in our life. And the Prophet continuously says if the job was to come while I'm amongst you, then I will continue with him on you'll be of I will sought him out on your behalf. But if he comes while I'm not amongst you, every person must look after himself. And Allah will take care of every Muslim on my behalf. So everyone needs to look after themselves. And again, you look after yourself by taking the same precautions, as you know as, as we all know, focus on your Salah,

00:36:39--> 00:37:19

give more charity, be a good person get closer to Allah subhanaw taala and that is what ultimately counts in times of calamity and a beautiful lamp. If we look at the there's a chapter in every book of Hadith, it's called the book of tribulations. It speaks about the journey speaker the science of kiama It speaks about any kind of tribulation that the Prophet spoke about it the night in the chapter of tribulations of the inquiry. The prophets of Salaam tells you what to do in terms of tribulation that prophecies worshipping Allah during a period of widespread turmoil is like making hegira to me major meaning taking yourself away from the safety that you need the salvation is

00:37:19--> 00:37:58

through he better to perform more evader and then resourcefulness his hastening performing good deeds before you see six major signs all the prophets speaks about six signs that will come before kiama dejavu smoke, the beast of a speaks about these things. So he says hastened to do good deeds while you still can, because there will come a time when you will be overwhelmed by the tribulation. So you and I, we still have the ability to do good deeds. And so we need to cash in to as much as we can, especially during these times of tribulation, before it is too late, is a hadith in theory, maybe a beautiful hiding from the soul element to us. This is actually in also today. One of the

00:37:58--> 00:38:37

reasons I gave this lecture is because for the past week, I've been inundated with fake news and conspiracy theories that I felt I need to speak about, you know, get people back to perspective. And then just before I spoke, gave this lecture today, a brother sent a beautiful, beautiful voice note of a hadith that I have never heard before and I checked it out. It's authentic. It's the hadith of salvation in theory. So how we relate to the prophets as Adam said, he asked them to be so solemn, what will give us salvation, what will save us what will save us and so then avviso salaam responded, and he said, if you want to be saved, do three things. Number one, control your tongue,

00:38:38--> 00:39:21

and by extension, your WhatsApp, your Facebook, control your tongue, watch this thing. Number two, let your house be enough for you stick to your home's make your homes be sufficient for you. And number three, weep over your son's cry to Allah for the sooner that you can do these three things, one, Allah, that's all we need to do now stay at home. Watch what we send out into the digital universe and get closer to Allah do good deeds, and repent for your sins and this will save all of us will save all of us. Lastly, and my you know, a very beautiful Hadith. Even if this is the Inspiron one, even if kiama were on our doorstep, even if all these fears were to come through stole

00:39:21--> 00:39:59

we are required to be optimistic, and we are required to respond beneficially being hysterical, sending out messages and creating further his theory really is counterproductive. It's not good enough. It's just a way in which you are trying to control the situation that you cannot control. Let it go and focus on what you can control and this Hadeeth but understand the law on the professor's tendencies to see if the final hour comes. If kiama is basically arriving, and you have a sapling, a plant in your hand, and it's possible for you to plant it, then he should plant it even if kiama

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

What's coming? Now someone might say, but if gamma is here, there's no way this plant will even grow to be a three, we do not worry about the outcome. Do not worry, Heidi is telling you to not worry about things out of your control what America does what the governments of the world are doing, what some scientists are doing, what the rest of humanity is doing, you cannot control that. So don't worry about that. Worry about the things you can control. And no matter how bad your situation is, or how dire the situation is, go back and do something good and something productive, be positive, make a vida and hope for the good. Remember, every webinar we do every charity we give every three

00:40:41--> 00:41:20

we plant objective is not for us to see the result in the dunya we want to see the result in the archaea. And once we do the good deed, when the matter is in Allah's hands for him to compensate us. And that is what is the purpose of life. So we remind ourselves that this dunya is temporary. We're only going to be here for a few years, and then we're going to pass away and we have to make the most of what we have. Sometimes we're testing with ease and comfort. Sometimes we're tested with difficulty and hardship. Sometimes it's jobs or family or children's three, sometimes two big things you know, global calamities, ultimately salvation is in the Salah, we make the East the 5000s we

00:41:20--> 00:41:55

make the charity we give the company the kind of friend you are husband, your wife, your son and daughter you are this is that Salva, salvation is all about that. And yes, life will give this thing all the time it will be this thing only when we enter the doors of Jannah will all this come to an end and I pray and I pray to Allah subhanaw taala and we bring all of us into the doors of Jannah very soon and let these difficulties pass very quickly. Allah keep us safe and grant us to be mindful of our bring back the ease and comfort so that we can eat better people but you've Neela Lehane also was in

00:41:57--> 00:42:01

Islam recently, and I mean, it's an article more likely we're gonna get to
