Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah brothers and sisters, if somebody said to you a month ago that the world will be moving towards and almost locked down, schools, colleges, universities,
shops would be closed, the vast majority of people will be working from home if they could not totally that some harmala masajid would be closed. You and I would have laughed at that.
And look at where we are today.
And where are we today? That's the question that we need to ask ourselves as Muslims. You know, many have defined this time as a time of fitna tribes tribulation and strife. Where does the word fitna come from the word fitna actually comes from the word for tanto. The Hub pertanto hub is when you warm up gold, and when you warm up the gold, then the scum comes out, and you leave pure gold. Really, that's where we are today. This is a trial and tribulation for all. And for the believers. We need to show that we will not fall into this fitna, but we will be that pure gold. But Subhanallah you know, you look around. And you see Muslims hoarding, hoarding, toilet paper, you see
videos of people with Charlie's load of food.
Did you trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala? You know, isn't this time, a time of support and patience? Isn't this time where the Muslims are a step and a notch higher than others? Isn't this a time where believers are people, you know, who are caring for other individuals is a time where believers should shine but what's happened? You know, we go with the herd. We go with the masses. Our tradition is what our tradition is that tradition, where a group of prisoners were bought to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to the Sahaba, who will take these prisoners prisoners home and feed them at a Sahabi send me a message
of Allah so he takes these prisoners home and he asked his wife is there anything to eat? She said we only have enough food for our children should put the children to bed hungry. And then when you bring the food because the food was only enough for the prisoners per tent, put the lantern on and then knocked the lantern down. And then we will eat in dark but we won't eat but the prisoners will think that we've eaten with them and they will carry on eating. This hobby does this.
Nobody knows this beside him, his wife and Allah subhanho wa Taala and the next day he goes into the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the verses are revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam while he entered the gathering of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah says glad tidings for last night Allah revealed this was your Runa Allah and forcing wallow cannibal kasasa they give preference to others, even if they are in need themselves, brothers, sisters, so what
if your children don't eat meat for two weeks? So what if you have to have a do a bit of support one why this will be therapy for you. And I
then we have done sober because we believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Sustainer man yet tequila jello, Maka COVID hyperlite. The sip, if you have true God consciousness, and you've really fear Allah then Allah sees who fears Allah that Allah will make a Maharaj for him an opening for him and he will sustain him from a place that that person can't even believe this last week one of the students was telling us that her family members in London couldn't find any formula milk for the children. So they have to buy from Birmingham and take it all the way down to London. And not only that people hoard and then they make videos of it.
You know, Subhana Allah Allah he you know, these are testing time these are not times of Nazi Nazi This is time with believers are meant to be the true gold, the pure gold, you're meant to shine. you're meant to spark you're meant to be a level and notch above everybody else. The message of Allah was born
Walking with a man he had never met this man before, never met this man before.
And he's walking with Him. And the robbery is a little while he was selling now bricks a branch, and he breaks a branch into two for the miswak. One is straight, and the other one is crooked. So there probably is a little La La wasallam give this man he gives him the straight when he keeps a crooked one himself. And it's man didn't know the message of a lot of messages. I didn't know him. And he asked the message of unlicensed message of Allah, why did you give me the straight one to keep the crooked one yourself? You said because in the other so your salon software decided to man would be asked from Allah regarding a moment of companionship. And on the Day of Judgment. I want to tell
Allah, I gave you preference over myself. So brothers, you know, sisters, please, please, you know, let's not go with the flock. Let's not be the flock. Let's be a bit exceptional. You know, we had a phone call yesterday, some of the brothers have started going out and giving food to those who are over 65 and the lady rang yet a non Muslim lady, a pensioner and she was crying.
And she was thanking us she was making duar for the brothers and sisters who have sisters. So one like You know, this has shown us there are some people within our community one more who won gold, who won gold.
But unfortunately, on the other hand is also shown that they are those forget about the era, even in the dunya the Nazi Nazi Nazi Nazi, if you got one robot people, if you got babies, I understand. But for other than that, go through a bit of hardship.
Maybe you will appreciate other people who are in lockdown in the world. Those in Palestine, those in Kashmir, those who don't have food to feed their children, maybe.
But ultimately whatever you do in times of difficulty, shows your steel shows what you're made of. We make dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the alma mater, Allah Subhana Allah alleviate the suffering upon humanity. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us amongst those who are pure gold Baraka Luffy compatibility. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
