hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Neil atta murni Allah rasulillah amin wider. Li he was sabeti he won many. behead de la yo me Dean, my beloved brother and most respected elders, mothers and sisters.
So in the second year after hegira so after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam migrated from Mecca to Medina, two years after that, a lot of Bula is blessed us with this gift of Ramadan.
The month was existant long before that, but a lot of Bulla is blessed us by making it compulsory upon us to fast the month of Ramadan.
what a blessing the fast is, and you know the ahaadeeth with regards to it and in this conference, you will hear that I had eliminated Favell talk about it. But I wish to mention just one with you.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informs us man sama, Yeoman feasts.
Whoever fasts a single day, in the path of Allah.
Either in the path of law or in the obedience of law, Muslim Yeoman feasts, Abbe de la, ba de la who be there, the Kelly young, what you have, who is in a very sad bear in a hurry, find a lot of bullet is moves the face of that person away from the fire a distance of 70 years. So for every single day that you fast, a lot of bullets, moves your face away from the fire of jahannam Sudbury in a hurry. And as a ballerina, I'm 70 years and it is the mercy of Allah upon us that he has
decreed fasting upon us, because none of us would have ever fasted a full month had not been the favor of Allah, Allah is that he ordained that upon us too fast the following month. So just one of the rewards of this fast for every single day imagine, out of his infinite mercy and grace. A lot of bulldozer moves your face away from the fire a distance of 70 years. So this blessing, a lot of Buller is ordained upon us and the second year after he Jolla with the vs cam that fasting has been prescribed upon you, as it was to the nations before you. Now an interesting thing happens so just visualize the Sahaba it is their first month of fast so you can imagine the law school isn't Sala,
the is the CRM is the Attica is the company of the righteous are their food and drink of thought. And so Who are they? This is the environment that we know about Ramadan, but then the second year of hijra
in this month of Ramadan. On the 12th day in particular, something happened. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was made to march out of the city, in what would go down in history as the battle or campaign of butter. So now the fast is the the month of blessing is the but the believers have been given another challenge, the challenge of having to face an adversary in the middle of the month of fasting. So they marched out the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the companions and they marched out on the 12th of Ramadan. The teeth they weren't 12 they were marching 13th 14th 15th 16th they arrived at the wells of butter on the 17th day was the confrontation
So they marched 150 kilometres. Think about the deal once difficulty, and the lawsuit shared his camel with two others. So three people per one camel
covering a distance of 150 kilometres, each person requiring you know each person is required to walk 100 kilometres and he gets to ride or mount for 50. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with this lesson, group of companions arrives in butter, and that Sahaba say that our feet are blistered, our nails had fallen off difficulty, and then this is all one level of difficulty. The next challenge is the worry, anxiety, stress of confrontation. You know a normal person you argue with, you start to sweat, you know, your palms go wet, your hands move out, you breathe different face scores read the stressors in Jiu wrestlers of confrontation, and that's just a verbal one.
These ones are required in the month of Ramadan
to go out 150 kilometres in meet an adversary three times their size. But this is not a, you know, an analysis of the campaign of butter, but rather I want to highlight just one thing.
The Muslims were given a challenge, a hurdle was placed in the path, a difficulty they had to overcome. And the rule in this religion is, as the difficulty increases, so does the reward. Remember, as the difficulty increases, as the challenges increases, so does the reward. So a lot of bullets
for the difficulty did a few things for them. I want to mention some of it with you. First of all, listen to this, of Laura bullosa tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if the topolino me Nina, and the fear come into mid Docomo bukem with LS at the lF in mineral mela ekati moons Eddine wouldn't not be sufficient for you that a lot of bullet is sent down 3000 angels in support of you. And then a lot of bulldozer says Bella impossibile with that tough to come in for woody him Heather, you need to come Rob bukem byham setti lfv minella Maeda ekati muscle we mean, one giant la who in sha Allah calm what he taught online in Nepal, boo boo combi woman Nasir elimina in the law, a lot
of good tells this prophet in the middle of the campaign, tell the believers would that not suffice you that Allah Allah is essential for you 3000 angels to stand by you support you, I honor you protect you. And then Allah is out of his infinite grace and mercy increases it by another 5000 and then gives the reason
why gyla hold law who in the Bush era Can we give this to you as a glad tidings as a happy news, because your hearts are stressed, you're under duress, you're under difficulty. Maybe negative thoughts are going through your mind. Relax, take it easy, be Be of good cheer. Angels have come to support you. And then Allah says woman nostro elimina in de la. But victory is from me. I didn't need to send the angels I have only sent them out of my kindness and favor and acknowledgement of view so that your hearts could be reassured and that you could have happiness and and that you could have reassurance. So the ones that was the Muslims that had to face an extra challenge in their
armor one in bother. So now 2020 Ramadan has come in a environment which seems that it will
Be our Ramadan in a pandemic, in a COVID-19 environment. And naturally you see around, people are stressed, worried, especially for the elderly and their families, that my father, my mother, my grandfather, my grandmother, not be afflicted with this illness so that they are not in isolation and they're not in quarantine and we can't even visit and Allah forbid, if you know the father of Allah befall them and they die when it is even difficult to the to go to the graveyards and
and do the worship there. So I'm thinking, the Lord that gave the reassurance to the Muslims of butter. Do you think he would have forgotten to give you reassurance you who are about to go through a difficulty in the same month of Ramadan? No, do one's Listen, here's the glad tidings on the tongue of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for me in you in this environment in this Ramadan like no other. Listen to the coal of Armada Chateau de la hota botica Ouattara and her she says, El Toro Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on your own. I asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to pandemics, you know pandemics in which excessive amount of people
die. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam informed her
and who can either be in the abasto Hola, hola, la amania these pandemics these
you know, occurrences of viruses and diseases which used to kill multitudes was used to be a punishment that allowed a bola is what punish whomsoever He chose.
For gyla who la hota and metal meaning but for this nation, a lot of bullet.
Change that to one mercy for you. Listen dear ones, the glad tidings this questions being asked around is Allah angry Is this a calamity is that Allah for me in new for this nation on the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Hadith is in Buhari narrated by acidic Otto been to Siddique, the Beloved of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amada, Isha and
on the tongue of the Prophet Allah informs us that this is a mercy to the believers.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us how it becomes a mercy Listen carefully, fillet salmon abdeen yakar also, only, there will never be a time in which a person falls in a pandemic. As in the disease starts to spread the virus starts to spread. But this person fire boss for young co Sophie Bella de and this person stays in his land saw build on more than seven year Island Lambo and who you see boohoo ilam cuttlebone la Hola. Look at the conditions number one, he stays put. He doesn't run from it to another country and possibly take the disease and virus day he stays where he is. Number one, number two, saw Buren is patiently number three more than a ban and dissipating
calculating looking forward to the reward in the court of a lot of bullet is a fourth condition. Yeah, a Lambo and now Who are you see boohoo ilam cuttlebone la Hola. He knows confidently that nothing will befall him except that Allah has written it for him. If he fulfills these four stays at home. bears that patiently anticipates the reward knows that nothing will befall him except that it has been written for him just for meeting these. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says his reward will be mythopoetic myth low adoration Shaheed will be the reward similar to the reward of Amata. Notice he hasn't died. He hasn't been infected. He has just
Self isolated, quarantine, manage that intelligently, with a good heart of suburb and, and dissipating the reward knowing that nothing will befall him except that Allah chooses just for these, Allah will give him a reward similar to the reward of martyrs. And then this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Illa and can Allah who mithila God Shaheed similar like the reward of amata, but in the event that he is infected, and he suffers or dies, independent MC and dies independent MC, then his reward is the reward of Amata Abu hurayrah rights and the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari as well that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
five deaths, five deaths are martyrdom. The first one, the person that dies in a pandemic, dies from a virus. Do you see the glad tidings, what an honor that you in your house sitting in your home? You know, and a lot of bullet decrees martyrdom, I think that people go and chase and search and Allah gives it to you on a platter if it is your mother. So this is why this is the glad tidings for us dear ones, that be one Illa had hummed relaxed and confident.
follow the guidelines, take the precautions because we are not a people that go seeking, you know, viruses and diseases and last, but if it befalls us, we are those who bear it with a smile and say Alhamdulillah that a lot of bulldozer opened this door of height for us. And this is what one of the Sahaba us hub of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, Maya dibny, Jabba did, he came out to the people and standing in front of them. He said, this is a mercy of your Lord, the Tao of your prophet and what has taken the righteous before us or Allah I asked you don't deprive Muhammad and his family from this. So walking off the pope that a lot of bullets infected him with the virus
