so in today's football, inshallah, obviously everybody has the Coronavirus on their minds, and the kind of panic that many cities are experiencing, people are running into grocery stores and fighting each other over toilet paper, and toothbrushes and all kinds of things. You know, hand sided hand sanitizers become a rare commodity now, I'm sure those stocks are going to help. And in the, in the light midst of all of that panic, of course, congregations have large number, it's advised in any city that's been affected by it that congregations have large numbers not be held. And everybody already knows that, you know, things like sporting events or religious ceremonies and things like
that, that it's being advised for the for the larger, you know, community's health that they not be held. And that's actually something I personally find very convincing and agree with Also, my own take on a community decision here at Vienna Musha, that our campus to not hold the Juma for the entire community. There's only like maybe seven or eight people here today, in the Jamaat on my instruction.
And the reason to do that is my process and coming up with this decision, I wanted to you know, you guys to know how I arrive at such a decision.
My first inclination is to discuss this with people who know better than I do. And in this matter, I do like to consult a doctor occasionally. And so I did give him a call and discuss this with him and shared with him what we have going on in our city and so many other cities. And it is not just his but many other scholars opinion that if there's a larger harm to come out of the community, then we don't have to think that it's more righteous, to come to the germline. So before I talk about the subject of the hook, but today, I wanted to address what some people might think is the more Islamic approach. So somebody might come out and say, No, no, no, you have to fear only Allah subhanho wa
Taala. And you should not be afraid, and this is a conspiracy of the kuffar and, you know, and this is all kinds of opinions are thrown out, because the internet's a crazy place. And not only the internet so much, it can be a crazy place. Everybody has their own opinion on what to do, and not have any fear or concern because if unless protecting us, nothing's going to happen to us. While all of that is true, when the law protects us nothing can happen to us and allows Oh, Jim gave us these guarantees and doctrine. Em sakalava lalibela calm, if allow her to aid you, then there's no one that can overpower you. There's absolutely no one or no thing that can ever overpower you. However,
on the flip side, Eliza Jen does teach us a thing or two about caution.
He does teach us that we live in a world in which we have to use common sense. It's not like a sort of loss of love, or I mean, he was alone, when he was making his law from Mecca to Medina said, Allah will protect me, I'm going to walk right out the front door and go right up walk right outside of Medina, there had to be a plan, and a strategy and escape, you know, route and secret passages, you know, secret pathways and secret timings in order to escape the enemy's plan. And at the end of the day, what we learn in our religion is we do the best we can we take whatever precaution we can. And then a protection only comes from Allah, you don't get to drive into a red light speeding, and
then say, a level protect me, no, you, you have to take your precautions, and yes, Allah will protect you. And if Allah decides some harm will come your way, it doesn't matter how many traffic signs you observe, if it was going to come your way it was going to come your way, there's no way to avoid that. But our religion does teach that kind of responsibility. The other thing is, if somebody says, I don't care, I'm coming, or we have to stick together, it's not just about you, it's not just about a concern for you, you could by city, you may have, for example, this virus, and you're sitting next to someone whose immune system is very weak, and you didn't get affected by it, maybe
you didn't even know you had it. And a few days later, it emerged that you have it because it doesn't show itself after except after a few days, and you basically cause this person and their family irreparable harm. So it's not just even about ourselves. So this is a matter of larger responsibility. And that is something our religion does, in fact, teach. So that's just one thing on the side that I wanted to mention. But you know, as this is a trial that affects virtually, you know, hundreds of 1000s, if not millions of people around the world, their livelihood is affected their health, it's not just their health that may be affected, their sense of safety may be
affected, the resources, they have access to me get affected, you know, a lot of people depend for their livelihood, or for family reasons they have to travel and their travel is affected. So life gets disrupted by these kinds of things. And it can be a very difficult trial. So I'm sure there are people that have had to make many serious changes in their life as a result of what's going on, you know, border closings and governmental shutdowns and all kinds of things that are happening. So as a result of that, I wanted to highlight something that, you know, I was thinking about what to get football about today, and I don't want to give a football about the Coronavirus. But what I do want
to give a club about is what is LSA about scenarios in which people feel like the world is closing in on them. Or they're they don't know where to go. Or they feel like they're completely vulnerable and subject to attack. Right. And one great parallel that I think is worthy of contemplation is what happens after this is important now after Mussolini's crosses the water, so the Israelites had now escaped the federal, they are now in the desert. And I want you to understand what that scene looks like. These are, these are 1000s and 1000s of people, men, women and children that have left their homes behind. So they will probably don't even have another day's worth of clothes. They can't
possibly have days and days and days worth of food, so they don't have a lot of food with them. And there are old among them sick among them, children among them, babies, among them, men, among them, women among all kinds of people among them, and they are in the desert. So they actually don't even have shelter from the sun. So they're in the scorching sun find the escape for our own, which is immediate death. But the desert is a kind of death on its own, isn't it. And that's where they find themselves in the 1000s. And so even if anybody any one person is taking a sip of water 20 people are looking at them desperately. This is the scenario in which we find ourselves a lot describing
this scene. And they're starting to get agitated because you know, how are they going to survive? And they are going to turn to Masada, Islam, we're running out of water. That's obviously what's going to happen very quickly. We're running out of water. You know, it's very different from nowadays when you and I travel, and we'll hand we're out of snacks. We're out of chips. Okay, stop over the next gas station. We we take these the access to food or access to drink as something for granted. They couldn't do that. They can't do that. They can say Oh, wait, I left my I left my favorite juice back in Egypt can't do that. They can't turn back if that's gone forever now. So in
that scenario, Musashi Salaam had to speak to all of them. Now they're at unrest there. Nobody sure what to do. And musasa basically has to give them a football. He has to give them a talk in that emergency state and that conversation is brief. It's insulting for him. But it's really beautiful. Because it's not just about what he said, but that Allah considered that conversation so timeless, and what they needed to hear and these are the Muslims of that time. So what Allah says on the tongue of Musa Listen, he says what if God who said he called me his guru

So, either way you can be hoonah accom
He says masala ceramicist, his people mentioned a last favor on you, when he just rescued you from the, from the dynasty of the pharaohs. They were humiliating you with the worst kinds of punishments. They were slaughtering your sons, they were letting your women live. And in all of that, in that rescue, there was a great blessing of Allah for you for you. And in that trial, there was a great trial for you. So there's, but that means two things blessing and trial. So in Allah having you escaped is an incredible blessing, because nobody gets to escape the Pharaoh. Not in the 1000s. Anyway, you can't just decide one day, we're no longer slaves, and we're going to walk out of
here. Nobody gets to do that. armies don't mess with the pharaohs, armies, and you people walked out of slavery, while they would they have the power to kill your children, you know, if nothing else, a family would die to defend their own child, a mom would run in front of a moving car, so as to not let the car hit her child. natural instinct. You've seen videos of like animals when the lion comes after one of the small bowls or you know, maybe the other animals that are no match for the lion herd together, they'll defend their young that it's nature that will defend our young, you'll see a bird fighting against a snake that's trying to eat eggs. Right. And the Pharaoh had so much power
over the Israelites that he was killing their children in front of them and they couldn't fight back. Like that's how suppressed they were. That's how powerless they were. So when Mussolini's I'm saying, a largest helped you escaped that. Would you forget escaping You didn't even have the power to defend your own children.
And everybody knows what it means to let the women live. You didn't even have the power to stop that from happening. And he allows you to, to get away from that. What a huge gift that is. Here they are thinking about the problem. What's at hand, the beaming sun, the lack of water? How are we going to cry babies the sick, that's what they're thinking about. And Mousavi son starts his conversation with actually you had a much bigger problem, and one that was impossible to escape. And it's not just saying look at the bright side and be grateful. There's obviously gratitude is immediately intended here. But the other intent is, if Allah can bring you out of one impossible situation, Why
all of a sudden, should we even entertain the thought that Allah will abandon us now?
How can you even think that look at what a legend did for you?
He did this for you. And then he forgot about you in the desert? Is that is that what you're thinking? You know, he brought you through all of this only to leave you at this stage. So have good opinion of Allah. And the way to have good opinion of Allah is to think back in all the impossible situations that Allah hold you and me out of how impossible they seemed at the time, how they seemed like the worst disaster and catastrophe at the time. And a lot pulled us out of it. He brought us out over and over again. And he's reminding all of them of it. Then he says to them, and this is this is one of my favorite parts about gratitude and how how the Koran looks at gratitude. What is
the other Nabucco the insha khardungla, azita, Naco
when your master had made a decree when he made a pronouncement that
now the word is interesting here because you didn't you know, hydro Konami, macula Vedanta, you could say very little and get a point across. So you could save weather in Chicago, as either overcloud or buco or your Allah has said, if you're grateful, I will give you more and more easy, but the word the other night is pleased by the perfect wisdom of Allah. The Avila comes from, you know, from you know, a van. A van is also the call to prayer, it's an announcement. And that is called an announcement because it goes in the oven, it goes into the year. The agenda means when somebody opens up their ears and all else becomes muted, and the thing that's being announced
overtakes. So you know, if you're having multiple conversations, and one voice overpowers all others, and kind of drowns out all the other voices, that's an event. That's why it's supposed to be louder than any other conversation. That's that's what an announcement is, right? So the antenna actually suggests there are lots of thoughts in my head. There are lots of thoughts I'm hearing are lots of words that I'm hearing, even having conversations with myself. But this decree of Allah this pronouncement of Allah needs to the ears need to tune everything else out and hear this as if until you get rid of all other thoughts, and just hear this on its own. You will not appreciate what's
being said, this is one of those things that requires a singular mind where everything else has to be erased. So here's what if the oven oven
when your master made a pronouncement,
You know, and of course when Musashi Salaam is speaking, they know that he's speaking on behalf of Allah, he doesn't have to mention that Allah is telling me a lie is telling me a lie is telling me to tell you, but he mentioned that of buco anyway, as if to suggest, you know, when somebody's speaking up, you know, because you know, I'm working with the kids all the time. And if one of them is speaking louder than the others, nobody's paying attention. But if I try to chime in and say, Hey, everybody, listen up. And hopefully, most of them hear my voice and say, Okay, okay, I gotta stop, I gotta listen. Because there's a there's an authority when somebody else a teacher in the
classroom, when they raise their voice, everybody else's voice goes down a little bit. You know, when when you hear that your your master made a pronouncement. Then everything else gets put on hold. And the word Rob is important here too, because Allah being a rub means that he's our provider. He's our caretaker. He's our protector. He's our nourisher my preferred translation of the rub of the word Robin English is nurturing master. It's not just someone who owns you, someone who feeds you and takes care of you and protects you with all of that stuff isn't included inside the wardrobe. So here you are feeling like where's our nurturing going to come from? Where's our
protection going to come from? And unless as well listen to the one that gives you protection and nurturing and has authority over you the kind of authority he has over you and me We don't even have over our own bodies, with the Nabucco. He says that in Shackleton, that, as he didn't know,
even if you were to be the, it's hard to translate this, but I'll try to add more English words to get the point across. Even if you were to be the least bit grateful.
If you were at all grateful, like allies, not in this ayah talking about us being grateful continuously, and throughout our lives. Actually, that would have been in the school, the melodic form, the present tense form. Here it is the in Shackleton's produce, it's even if at one instant, you have shown me gratitude, real gratitude. You're truly grateful for whatever Allah has given you. You're truly grateful for it. And you don't turn to Allah and think, where are you? Why aren't you helping me? Why don't you know, you could be doing better for me, if you can develop the sense of finding something to be grateful for another question arises, these people are in the desert,
there's still hot, they're still sweating as Mousavi Sam is talking to them. So when he says, if you were even the least bit grateful, they could look around and say grateful for Why?
What do you want me to be grateful for? You know, and the idea. Because there's when you look around, the only things you can see are things to complain about things to not be grateful for. So what are you being grateful for? The previous IR that I refer you to? Has the key to that question has the answer to that question. If you and I can think about the times that Allah has come through for us in impossible situations, then First of all, you're grateful for what happened in the past. But more than anything else, you're grateful for the fact that you have someone on your side, someone watching over you, that does that for you time and again, his presence, his existence in
your life, is what you're grateful for. Even if you can't see anything positive around you zero positives around you. The fact that alive, the unseen is your job.
And he's been your Robin, he's been taking care of you that emaan is actually the number one thing to be grateful for. He's there. I'm not alone in this. I'm not insecure in this. I will take whatever precautions I can, but Allah will take care. And so if the Hon Camilla in ceccato, even if you could show me the least bit of gratitude, think back and have remained positive about the presence of align your life. What does the law say? law as Eden Naco is one of the most comprehensive brief words in the Quran. He says I will absolutely, absolutely, absolutely there's three absolutely is here. The lamb is llama Toki. The noon is known tequila, that means is twice the
emphasis. So the way I translate that is going to be clunky English, it's going to be I will absolutely for sure, definitely increase you. So he says that three times over. And the present tense form is used suggesting it's going to go on forever. So notice the contrast. You were grateful for a little bit for like a moment. You showed one instance of gratitude. Allow responded with continuously giving you more and more and more and more and more lousy dynaco. And what's even more incredible is Allah didn't say increase you in what? He didn't qualify. He didn't say I'll increase you in guidance or increase you in patience or increase you in tolerance or increase your endurance
or increase you in strength. He didn't call
Why because he is telling us the way in which he will give us more cannot be quantified. You cannot limited to, in one thing or the other, he may increase you in money or in health or in safety or in, in protection or in guidance or in wisdom or an understanding or in forgiveness, or there's so many things you need increase in, I need increase in and he didn't want to limit that to what anyone thinks. He says.
I'll keep on giving more, more and more and more and more. The last point here is in Arabic When you have the effect, then, you know, if you do this, then I'll do this. Right. There's a little bit of a language lesson, but I'll make it simple to understand is really beautiful. If you're grateful, then I'll give you more and more simplified. So there's an IF and there's and then but if you come to the next part of the ayah, whether in cafardo. And even if you are ungrateful, if you're in denial of a lesser gopher doesn't just mean to disbelieve in a lot, go for here is the antonym the you know it's, you know Hello for sugar. It's the opposite of sugar here, let the sugar and so you can be
grateful for something that does that's called sugar and you can be ungrateful for something Allah has done that cocoa for Allah nirma. So gopher doesn't just mean denial, it also means to be ungrateful. Now, he says, if you're grateful, I'll give you more and more and more. And if you are ungrateful, even if you're ungrateful. Now, you would expect but he says, if you are ungrateful, then there should be an event. Right? But that then is missing. That then would have been well
But actually the ISS for the Inca photo in
my punishment, for sure is intense. But he didn't make it connected to ingratitude directly, as if to give us relief, and say, No, you should just know that my punishment is intense. But I'm not tying it to your any act of in gratitude. Just because you forgot to be grateful or you were ungrateful, I won't necessarily immediately punish you with intense punishment, but because you become grateful next time you're thinking about becoming ungrateful. Know that I can be punishing, too. But just like there was a there was a knot tied in Shackleton as Eden and both of them have learned those two lands what they do they make it an F and then they're locked in with each other.
You want to let it give you more and more and more be grateful. That's the rule.
But what about if you're ungrateful, then you're gonna get punished? No, no. Allah says and even if you are ungrateful, just know that I can, I can punish my punishment is pretty intense. But I'm not telling you that if you are ungrateful, then absolutely, I will punish you. If I if you're ungrateful than just check yourself and come back to him grateful. He didn't make an IF and then on the gratitude, that's yet another thing to be grateful for, that allows origin did not make that correlation. Because the fact of the matter is, you and I are ungrateful most of our lives. There's no way we can actually truly be grateful to Allah for what he's done for us. We can have moments of
gratitude, we can have moments where we our heart actually recognizes what Allah has done. We can have moments where we fall in such that out of sincere gratitude towards him. You know, people ask me sometimes
Why should I pray? I mean, cuz just because it was gonna throw me in hell if I don't pray actually, where does what is prayer begin with? What do you want to say a lot of hope but and you start the prayer, the first thing you reciting is the Father. And the Father, the first thing you're saying is 100, doesn't it? Almost telling you what the prayers for if you feel grateful, you'll pray that prayer is actually a sign that you recognize a less favours on you. You're you're acknowledging ullas favors on you, you're acknowledging how grateful you are, and I am. That's what prayer is, when prayer is getting weaker. Actually, it's not necessarily all parts of your mind, you still
believe in God, you still believe in the last day you still believe in heaven and hell, what might be becoming weaker is your sense of gratitude. That might actually be becoming weaker. So this is a time for you and I want to, we want more, we want more protection, we want more safety, we want our children to be okay. We want our parents to be okay there, you know, warnings about people of older age that are at higher risk, for example, right, or children with certain diseases or people that have, you know, you know, immune deficiencies and things like that they're at risk, and we have loved ones that are in that state. So we're scared about that. We're worried about that for
ourselves and our families. This is the time where we want to give us more and more and more. So this is the time where as a spiritual exercise for all the families that are listening to this, myself included, that we sit with our children, we sit with our families, and we kind of talk about what is it that we are to be grateful for what did what is Allah done for us? And recount not just the things you see, look back and recount what
What are the times that Allah did this and this and this
and how Allah brought us out, you know these ayat, I didn't even share with you this these were like, is number six onwards, and I'll wrap up with this in Ayah number five Allah says about musante, Salaam Alaikum wa salam, Mousavi Ayah Tina and rich Karma Karma Karma Lulu Mattila.
We gave Musa revelation. So telling them, telling him, get your people out of darkness into light.
Get your people out of darkness into light. And if you continue that imagery, get your people out of being ungrateful to being grateful. It's one of its one of its themes. How does someone comes out of coal out of darkness to light, they go from being ungrateful to grateful and you and I think dark times in our life, and how am I kept pulling us back into light over and over again, this is actually something we must do if we want for Allah to open the doors of Liske and open the doors of protection and give us more and more and more so he allows him to make all of us every one of us in our lives worthy of more and more and more by his by his favor. And we allow God to accept our
gratitude and our acknowledgement of his favor that is felt from our hearts and declared to him Well, I'm not being able to do that because I hadn't asked for the favor your master has done for you then talk about it. Allah says talk about it. So talk to family about it discussing you know, don't just say don't just sit with a family and say well if I die then what are you going to do? On a very dilute? Okay, yeah, you can discuss the emergency state. Cuz as if our conversations are going to secure our future. We can talk about that in a in a spiritual sense, carry on doing good deeds, but that will do not mean buddy. But actually just as important, looking back and thinking
about what Allah has done for us. That's actually security that's actually increased coming from Allah. May Allah give us all increase in our lives in a way that is most beneficial for us. Baraka lovely welcome. phylloquinone Hakeem. And finally, it was
