We live in Chicago James Miller

00:00:13--> 00:00:50

salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali, h mine, my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam Islam radical, why America to me blah blah I mean all praise and thanks and worship into a last panel data load and Master of the Universe the shadow will no longer witness that man has the right of worship besides the last panel data, we see no greetings and love and salutations, beloved Debbie Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is pious and pure family to his companions and all those who follow Islam until the end of time. We see July in this time of hardship we beseech Allah collectively Allah, alleviate as well as tribulation, this test that you have put before us, grant us to be for

00:00:50--> 00:01:21

this test to be averted from us smell or keep us and our families and our loved ones safe. our health, our our risk of sustenance, our bodies, our Eman Muslim, foremost our amendment was to protect all of us all together. Well have mercy on those who are going through hardship and alleviate the suffering metal Have mercy on those who have passed away. And Allah subhanho wa Taala bring us through this to better people and made end soon be vanilla along with hungry laugh. Today is the third of April 2020. It is the

00:01:22--> 00:01:58

these for us here in Cape Town it is one week into the lockdown that we've experienced. It is the third jumar panel now that the massage would have been had been closed. And just on that point, many people wouldn't know that it had teeth with the opposite the person who neglects to does not attend three hours in a row consecutively. Then, you know there's a severe as if though he says he's excommunicated from from Islam. It's one of those 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 on the last

00:01:58--> 00:02:35

panel donabedian Allah will give us an even better tomorrow than the one that we have attended. So at home, you're making your door, it is no other doesn't mean when the markets open, we'll make we'll make these tumors up in fact at 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 one of our minds and spinal, we've seen that this, the number of infections globally has reached 1 million now, 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

00:02:35--> 00:03:16

South Africa for us Al Hamdulillah. We've been fortunate so far. 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 are empty. People are not coming to the hospitals unless it's an emergency and so you find that the hospitals are empty, bracing themselves for one on one all the Level A predict 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

00:03:16--> 00:03:21

many poor people there are many people who have compromised immune system. So those of us who

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

you know we continue making our do and will continue taking the precautions we need to do our best and then we leave the meta in all those hands. And without a doubt, you know, watching this event, this crisis unfold. This is the greatest test globally for us as 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 they fought 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 today's goodbyes about how do we respond to this? How do we you know process this and move forward from that. So to Anam the sixth surah of the

00:04:03--> 00:04:41

Quran, Allah subhana wa tada 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 mean it, we understand. So let's practice in iron number 40 of sudo Nam, Allah says, Call our item in attack kumada biLlahi at comesa. 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 Salah meaning kiama itself will become a rate of light. I don't want to include anything with 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? Allah answers and

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

says, yo, the owner, the actual matter owner, la insha. Allah Masha, 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 ayah is always speaking to both the Muslim and

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

I'm 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 SHA, Allah says, you come in and you turn to Me, for yakushi format to the owner, Allah then I will remove Allah says, I promise you, I will remove that which you asked me to remove, I will take it away, I will remove this virus insya if I choose, so, what and so number two shikun. 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 he says, When

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

I got out of Santa

00:05:39--> 00:06:18

Monica, that surely many, many times too many nations before you before us, Allah has sent messengers and books for 100 now humble but what barah illa Allah, Allah says, and we seize them, we took hold of them, with misfortune, with calamity, with hardship with poverty, all kinds of misfortune almost is the 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 almost allow me that 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

00:06:18--> 00:06:26

to, to you know to inflict harm, it was meant as as something positive that they may come back to Allah.

00:06:27--> 00:07:08

Then Allah continues, if we do not come back, what is the consequence analysis at falola? If Jerry Suna Todaro so why even if they did not did they not come back did not humble themselves when the punishment or the tribulation befell them when this hardship came to them when Allah sent him this hardship they did not come back. Well, I can consult follow boom and then on the other hand, instead of coming back to Allah, the heart the hearts became hard and it became sealed was a long shot on my candle Yeah. And shadeland made it seem that which they were doing as trivial as small they did not realize the reminder almost sending them a reminder to change their lifestyles. They did not change

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

they continue as it was. And so Allah says number one, based on that their hearts became sealed off became hard for them man so and I was and when they forgot, they did not take heed Mizuki Ruby does not take heed of the reminder that we seem to them.

00:07:23--> 00:08:08

To look how Allah spent Allah punishes Allah says he punishes fantana la Ababa Kula shakin. Allah says, When I opened up for them, all the doors of everything, all kinds of good and money and luxury and enjoyment, all of this, I opened it completely for them had either fighting who Bhima Ooh, until that they enjoyed themselves they were at the height of the Muse amusement and happiness has now home button for either home or soon, we seize them at that moment of complete, forgetfulness in only enjoying the money enjoying the wealth, feeling all pumped and powerful. Also, at that point, I seize them, meaning was paranoid, Allah took him cause him to die for either, and then then truly to

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

become the Spirit. Now this is this, this group 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 of our death, every time we go past the cemetery. We know this is what we're going to end up we should be reminded by these things, we listen to the hottie we get a

00:08:46--> 00:09:21

lecture. And it reminds us sometimes we don't take heed of the reminder. And then Allah subhanaw taala scenes, bigger reminders for us here in South Africa, for example, yo 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 then really and sometimes this is a really at the mercy of Allah, He sends a global reminder and this will be finalized, we see these 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 it's a reminder about the purpose of life. It's a reminder for everyone to look at our lives

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

and reassess, are we on the right path, are we if we continue as we were, we'll begin to end up and so it's up to us to see how we respond. And Allah says, when we respond by humbling ourselves, and beseeching 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 in our lives continue as it was, we continue enjoying ourselves we continue living the life that we will always doing. Then Allah says he will Unfortunately, he will close our hearts off seal it He will make us follow shaytaan will make it seem like our lives.

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

Since a small and then along 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 I 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 might actually be a punishment. So, how we respond and how we come out of it is very important. All of us are being tested, we are sitting in exam, and this Coronavirus is a test that we are 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?

00:10:41--> 00:11:19

So, number one, of course, we have to increase anybody as unless we turn around, we return back to when we make we, we increase it by that, 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, 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 or some of it, 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 this, what was it? what's what's, what's wonderful about the situation is, Allah

00:11:19--> 00:11:56

has caused many of the Haram things that we were doing to automatically be closed out, we can't go out we can't go to places which are haram anymore. In fact, Panama, we're very proud. And maybe, you know, 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 kind of law, 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, but he turns away from something which displeases Allah. And we pray that this is one of the reasons why that these

00:11:56--> 00:12:18

that we are not seeing 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 barter and avoid, avoid the sense 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, of the things that we do

00:12:19--> 00:13:00

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 instructions of the people anyone who does this without a valid reason, wins final idea you're sending. Number two, you see the while 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,

00:13:00--> 00:13:40

into into areas 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 to harm. So just take these ideas and these ideas into accounts of number one spreading false information, fake news online, I don't know why some people go through the effort to actually type up something which is false, or record a message that is 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 amplified and they pass on losses to you and me oh

00:13:40--> 00:14:19

you will believe if I fall sick. If a untrusted or an evil person or someone that you cannot trust comes to you with any news thing verified, first verified all standing in the crown 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 then 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 what's a major sin to share false news even without

00:14:19--> 00:14:56

even you know, unintentionally, but you did not you did not verify it. The prophets of Salaam 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 for as as received without assessing 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 with speaking everything that hears anything you receive, you just convey it and relate to without verifying it without assessing it. It is enough for you to become a liar like that. So be very, very careful what you say. Allah

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

has given us a golden opportunity to take away meaning of the harm that we are

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

We interact physically the places we go to the people we see, allies confine us to our homes which are safe. Now, the one place which is very dangerous is our, our cell phones in particular, our our TVs, our laptops, shut those things down, avoided. Use it only for good things initial loading, you really don't have much haraam around you see normal the allowances are very profound statement. So profound, I felt I 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 the previous predecessors, they go through similar stuff like us. And he says, take a lot of key and

00:15:41--> 00:16:14

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 you'll be held accountable for that. So be very, very careful what you receive and what you see, there is no harm in you're not chasing 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 even Illa

00:16:15--> 00:16:20

so that is with regards to fake news and false information we've received I've also received

00:16:21--> 00:16:31

lots of people sending me videos or audios about conspiracy theories that that is a greater plot of food that this is part of

00:16:32--> 00:16:49

a great scheme all of this is fake what you see on the news, there isn't such thing as economic Coronavirus, people have gone so far as to say that the entire thing is a made up thing the entire all the governments of the world or the hospitals are in it together. And there's so many theories about about what this is

00:16:50--> 00:17:30

swana law 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 you are yourself an expert in that in what you are seeing or you are trusted and if you are seeing things of a dunia 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 something else, you know the Wi Fi or the 5g is causing harm. I don't want to get into the 5g conspiracy theory out the educate yourself with regards to dunya. And it's not enough for you to watch a YouTube video to be educated go and study

00:17:30--> 00:18:11

and learn something of either the dunia sciences, or the Islamic sciences before you share these things because you are causing harm in what you're sharing. You're causing harm in what you're seeing 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 prophets of Salaam reminds us and He gives us certain guidance with regards to times of tribulation. And he says that in a heightened quality that the one who remains out of the tribulation who stays at home the

00:18:11--> 00:18:50

one who's who sits is the one who stands the one who stands is the one who is walking and running, that if you stay at home that you stay indoors you stay avoid the 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 it. So avoid these things, avoid these discussions and save yourself and look after yourself. And that is what is required of you in terms of tribulation. One of the big big themes that I'm getting in terms of these conspiracy theories or these question marks, you're getting Hadith and ayat that are being shared and people are asking is

00:18:50--> 00:19:27

this Kiana is this always seeing the coming and the end of times are we seeing the end of times? And so part of my lecture today is to talk a little bit about Kiana can we you know is this kiama How serious is this as a as a as a sign from Allah without a doubt it is tribulation it 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 every every day we see something like this. But is it enough for us to even go to that point because I've seen a video clip that is circulating that saying that when you know before kiama arrives Haji will stop and Maura will stop and now swana logo seeing the Saudi

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

government has closed the harms there is no more there's no more hedge. So clearly this is an indication that karma is coming. You watch the five minute clip part of a much bigger video clip a part of a much bigger discussion is not the first time that the hijab Mara has been suspended. Read history you'll find this happening before so it's for us to to be a little more critical in what we receive. But this happened before. Abdullah bin was one of the very very early converts of Islam after the grace of I passed away he settled in in Kufa in Iraq and

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

He was with the students in his house and that 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 red. And one of the person, one of the students sitting, they jumped up and he said, Our has come this is kiama Look at the sky, you know, the world is coming to an end. And even Massoud was sitting reclining, he was relaxing. And then he said, report, 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. So let's before we talk about karma, let's understand what we know from the Hadith. What do we know about piano and then we can

00:20:39--> 00:20:49

assess Is this something that we should worry about at least kiama. So I belovedness all that on the line then explains to the his his students, that they are science sort of

00:20:50--> 00:21:29

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. Clearly they have come, clearly they have passed we will be on them and others are still to come. So all the signs of kiama we know that kiama is close, when the Muslim when he arrived when he was commissioned with his new Buddha, he told us that me and the editing of gamma is like this and he raised the and he put together his index finger and his middle finger meaning put them together the difference between those two fingers is me and kiama kiama and I are very, very close together. In the Quran, Allah says that the moon has split and the PSA has come

00:21:29--> 00:22:12

near one of the big signs of the coming of Canada was that the moon was split in half the time going to be sold on another big sign of the advent of tianma is the death of navy seals on them. And the end of Revelation. Remember this entire, you know the entire purpose of life from the beginning of the atom until the last man was it alone 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 of the Navy. So Santa 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 than a piece of some you know

00:22:12--> 00:22:26

signs that the prophets have predicted that said before kiama what would happen we would come to Jerusalem. This happened in the timeless Sahaba that Persia would be conquered conquered, that Constantinople, Istanbul would be conquered that was the biggest city in the world. And that was conquered about six 700 years ago.

00:22:27--> 00:23:08

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 famous Hadith the Prophet Salam comm is asked by gpgpu Austin winsky am I going to come and the Prophet says neither you, nor I, we both don't know when qiyamah is going to come at something which is hidden, and only Allah knows the coming of gamma. But Allah has given us hints or signs to remind us or to be 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

00:23:08--> 00:23:49

established until the Arabs or the Bedouin people will compete in building faded tall buildings. So it's a very explicit sign of pm. It is also something very relevant to us knowing that in the Middle East today, the tallest buildings in the world are the the provinces allowances of the signs of kiama is that lying, particularly in business transactions will become very commonplace, it will become the norm and the markets will become very close together, the markets will become very congested and close together, the prophecies that will not come 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

00:23:49--> 00:24:29

happen within a year that it would seem like it 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 scholars will die. Ignorance will prevail it will be such a mess scale of ignorance, even though there'll be an eating people can illiterate, but they will be ignorant of the Dean of the dunya you will find fornication, Xena will be open will be prevalent wherever you look spinal 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, no nation or no group of

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

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 and the resources that you'd find that women increased more than that of men. It's not a negative sign of gamma. There are some positive signs of the coming of camera like the conquest of Jerusalem. So good things. One of the things also that they will be more women than men up to the point of 50 to one in terms of this hadith. We have not reached that that benchmark another a very clear sign of km Allah providences most will be beautified will be made very beautiful.

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

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 in the province is that the Muslims will be vast in number they will, there will be, you know, towards in every corner of the world to find the oma, but the value of the Muslim Ummah every week like the form in the seat will be pushed down, and our lands will be invaded by our enemies and they will take from our resource and take from our lands, like birds eating and the swaddler we see it and as this baps was more prevalent in the time of the colonized colonizers, you know, a century or two ago, the prophet speaks about a time when

00:25:37--> 00:26:17

the Riba will become so rampant, that even those who don't indulge in it will be exposed to its harm, it's smoke, that a 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 a 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 these are big, big signs that are occurring. There are other signs that are very cryptic, a lot of what they mean they could be speaking about our time, they could be speaking about another time, for example, that is close to the time of kamma people will come to the masjid arriving very comfortable

00:26:17--> 00:26:58

settles and they will dismount at the door of the masjid, you know, they will they would travel in a very comfortable form of transportation. Could this because Allah Allah and the Prophet Allah says, The the the women of that time, they will be waiting clothing, but there'll be naked again before if you look at the pictures of people the way they dressed up in the last 5060 years, we haven't seen the level of nakedness as we see today, the prophecies in by him in whose hand my life is the owl will not 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 an issue like any spy, will be able

00:26:58--> 00:27:35

to speak to him. So you will have a device we 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 alone and this is something which is in the Hadith, so very clear signs which is talking about now, those are all the minor signs, and there are many, many more minus signs, some of them which have clearly occurred, most of them actually have occurred, we see them being prevalent, and they offer you 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 just spoken about has not

00:27:35--> 00:28:17

yet occurred. There are a few other minor signs that have not occurred, then of course, there is the major, major signs of the autin big signs when they come to us no doubt the kiama is basically at hand. And that when these come these 10 signs of kiama they are like the Heidi speaks about like a pregnant woman on the verge of giving birth. So this is when you see these teen signs know that the end of the world is is it's it's a it's a concrete, it's a foregone conclusion. And these 10 signs, the promises is chiama 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 there'll be

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

a smoke that will come the coming of the gel, the coming of a beast of the earth, the rising of the sun from the waist, the descent of Navy Isa the return of the Messiah, the release of Julian George, and in three big landslides or three big you know,

00:28:35--> 00:29:10

sinkholes that will occur in the world, one in the east, one in the West, and one in the Middle East. And then they will be the last of the signs is 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 a beloved should remember we spoke about the Hadeeth we even massaged it a lot and was sitting with the students and the sky became an eat and one of the students jumped up and he said your lights kiama. And the woman said no. It's not Kiana. And then he went on to explain some of the things that must occur. He saw a boy Massoud first began in he spoke about that

00:29:10--> 00:29:54

they will be tribulation spoke about the there 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's tells us that the there will be a come a time when the oma is disunited, they are divided. There will be a lot of conflicts happening in the Middle East. And they will have a leader. And so the leader will arise is called Mr. Modi. And he will you know, the army of Mr. Modi will fight with with the Europeans. And he will be successful in defeating this great army in the Middle East and a lot of the conflict or the conflict that the Hadith speak about is happening in Syria and in the in the Palestine area. And

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

it's you know, could this be similar to the conflict we see today. This area has always had battles. It could be some

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

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 Mohammed or the the Great War that will occur in the Middle East, and Mr. Modi will be in charge at that time, the Muslims will win in Ramadi will win, but in the gel will be released and the gel will be released. And he will remain for 4040 days, one day will be like a year, one day will be like a month one there'll be like a week and then the other remaining days will be normal days with the jet and this will be the biggest weakness there'll be no tribulation, worse than the gel, just the worst

00:30:34--> 00:30:50

worst thing that'll be for mankind, the coming of the gel, and he will remain on the earth and he will cause mischief and havoc and lead people astray Swan, we look at this crisis and how people are completely confused. People are in hysteria. Imagine when the gel comes a lot, a lot protect us. And then

00:30:51--> 00:31:26

following the gel soon after he's coming along will seem to be so down. So insidious upon everything happening in Saudi and I'll make it easy for that land that has gone through so much at the moment, and Ibiza will be will come down, he will defeat the JAL and the Messiah, the age of the Messiah will begin. He will it all for seven years. And it will be the best years, you know, in terms of the history of the world, there will be no fighting anymore, there'll be no animosity, the whole world will be under one religion, and he will rule the entire world and be easily solemn, and it will be peace and prosperity for seven years. And then Judah jujubee will be released from the from the

00:31:26--> 00:31:52

barrier, they will break through the barrier, and they will completely destroy the world and all of humanity will perish basically, at the end except for the very few people that will survive a hiding away, including the Israelites from the Messiah and a few of these people will survive. And then the majority will be killed by loss and through a through a disease basically a small disease, a tiny disease will will destroy them and kill them. And then

00:31:53--> 00:32:34

so will 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 often speaks about in the Quran. One of the signs of kiama a smoke will come and will take the souls of those who have a man that the is none left. Even in the biblical scriptures. They talk about the rapture where the breeze will come and the believers will be taken away. And then what is left of humanity will just be the worst of the worst and then kiama will only come upon the worst of people and so the prophets of Salaam in a Heidi thesystem Sahaba that Kiana will not come until people returned to idol

00:32:34--> 00:32:44

worship. And one of us harbor says but is it not that Islam will in prevail in the Middle East that is not that Islam will you know will remove idol worship and the problem is yes, it will happen. But

00:32:45--> 00:33:28

eventually things will occur that will result in all the believers dying, this breach will come and what will be remaining is only the worst of people. And it's upon them that the trumpet will that the Trumpet will be blown. And that would be the the that is when Kiana would come so often they'll be sent off to the believers or taken away through this breeze, 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 this is these are basically the steps. So if we look at this virus from Hannah law, 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

00:33:28--> 00:34:08

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 that as we reach closer to Kerala, 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 for the coming up of the journal and the coming of mbsr. We'll be thinking about what predict. point is this is not kiama or not quite yet. And however, asking with his chemo or not, is besides what is important. Does it even matter if this is kiama? So we have had a man come to the professor, and he says, Yeah, tell me about chemo when is commonly to

00:34:08--> 00:34:42

come. And the professor says to one of these people, from all said to him, whatever you prepared for kiama probably didn't answer him. He says, What are you prepared? Are you ready for him? to come? How much good deeds have you done? How many? How much stiffer Have you made? Are you ready for it? What changes basically if you walk in working in another hottie the proximity to a man or asked him when he's kiama the Prophet says look at the youngest or the smallest child in the group, when that child grows up to become an old man. So look at your children and look at the youngest child that you have. When that baby grows up to being an old man for you kiama would have come because it

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

matters Viola. If kiama comes in 50 years from now, that gel comes in 10 years in 10 years time, but you die tomorrow I die today. Allah protect us. What difference does it make when when the carpet when for you and for me our karma has come the nature of this test of life remains the same ultimately, it

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

Your Salah, it is your fasting, it is 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's fine along what shows you the thick and the understanding of Sahaba. When they were when 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 why does he have these powers? The first thing that actually asked him, How do we make Salah if he's going to destroy time, if one day is going to be like a year? How do we make Salah because they understood the priority is

00:35:32--> 00:36:08

to worship Allah. And so if this were the end for us, it's it's, you know, it's something that we should think about you and I should think about, you know, this isn't the end, this is something that maybe it's not the end of time, but it's the end for me, there's a disease, my laboratory could affect me. Do I have my face in order? So, you know, someone comes to the doctor and says, oh, come to the chef and says, I just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Well, you know, kill me I only have a few days to live a few weeks ago. What do you advise to give me Well, now, everyone should put the face in order, any duties any things you owe to Allah in terms of Salah in terms of fasting,

00:36:08--> 00:36:49

in terms of dates in terms of Zika these things must be discharged we need to get right our books 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 Toba. We have four sons on our scales, we can remove them now. SubhanAllah, we can go to Allah, sin free, sinless through Tobin is defined so long 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 spinal I need to pick up the phone and speak to my my brother, my mother, my whoever it might be an awful mouth, that no one holds any

00:36:49--> 00:36:54

grudge against me at all either sorted out Now, before we have to sort this out on the day of km Allah protect us.

00:36:56--> 00:37:35

Once a hobby, you know, Austin Ibiza, some quite a bit about about the jail and all these things. And the prophets will say to him, you always ask these things. What is the matter with you? And so the prophecy. So the 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 that john is going to jump out of the trees. And other times. You don't give him much priority. We have he wants to understand this. And so the problem is currencies, I harbor II The things that I fear for you more important than the job, you're much

00:37:35--> 00:38:13

bigger things I worry about you about for you then then the gel. And it's about the priorities of life worrying about the job and the wording of the signs of kamma. Sometimes these things are a distraction. They keep us away from what is important in our life. And the proper continuous that is if the job was to come while I'm amongst you, then I will contend with him and you'll be off I will sort 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

00:38:13--> 00:38:52

all know, focus on your Salah, give more charity, be a good person get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is what ultimately counts in times of calamity than a Beatles album. So if you look at the there's a chapter in every book of Hadith, it's called the book of tribulations. It speaks about the journeys which are the signs of kiama It speaks about any kind of tribulation that the Prophet spoke about. It's the night in the chapter tribulations at the end in Buhari the prophets of Salaam tells you what to do in terms of tribulation, the prophet senses, worshiping Allah during a period of widespread turmoil is like making hegira to me major meaning taking yourself away from the

00:38:52--> 00:39:31

safety that you need the salvation is through EBITDA. So perform more eba and then resell services, hastening performing good deeds before you see six major signs all the prophets and speaks about six signs that will come before chiamata jail, the smoke the beast, the prophet speaks about these things. So he says, hasten to do good deeds while you still can. Because there will come a time when you will be overwhelmed by this tribulation. So you and I, we still have the ability to do good deeds. And so we need to cash in do as much as we can, especially during these times of tribulation before it is too late is a heady thing to me the beautiful Heidi's family so relevant to us.

00:39:33--> 00:39:59

This is actually in also today. One of the 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

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

Sahabi Aqua narrates of the prophets as Adam said, he asked them 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, and by extension, your WhatsApp, your Facebook, control your tongue, watch this thing. Number two, Lake your house, be enough for you stick to your homes, make your homes be sufficient for you. And number three, weep over your son's cry to Allah for the sins that you've done, do these three things. 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

00:40:41--> 00:41:26

deeds, and repent for your sins and this will save all of us will save all of us a lost limb. And I you know a very beautiful Hadith. Even if this is the inspired one, even if kiama were on our doorstep, even if all these fears were to come through stole we are required to be optimistic, and we are required to respond beneficially being hysterical. sending out messages and creating further hysteria really is counterproductive. It's not good enough. It's just a way in which you are trying to control a situation that you cannot control, letting go and focus on what you can control and this Hadeeth but unnecessarily Alon the professor's allowances to sit. If the final hour comes. If

00:41:26--> 00:42:09

kiama is basically arriving, and you have a sapling, a plant in your hand, and it is possible for you to plant it, then you should plant it even if gamma was coming. Now someone might say but if gamma zero, there's no way this plant will even grow to be a tree, we do not worry about the outcome. Do not worry, Heidi is telling you do not to 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

00:42:09--> 00:42:48

do something good and something productive, be positive, make a vida and hope for the good. Remember, everybody we do every charity we give every three we plant objective is not for us to see the result in the dunya we want to see the result in the era. And once we do the good deed, when the matter is in a lot of hands for him to compensate us. And that is what is his 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 were tested with ease and comfort. Sometimes were tested with difficulty and hardship. Sometimes

00:42:48--> 00:43:28

it's jobs or family or children. Instead, it's sometimes the big things you know global calamities, ultimately, salvation is in the Salah, we make the ecfr for our sins we 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 salvation, salvation is all about that. And yes, life will give its distance all the time it will be tasty. Only when we enter the doors of Jenna will all this come to an end and I pray and I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that may bring all of us into the doors of gender various the doors of gender will all just come to an end and I pray and I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that may bring all of us

00:43:28--> 00:43:38

into the doors of gender very soon. And let these difficult days pass very quickly. Allah keep us safe and grant us to be mindful and Allah bring back the ease and comfort
