Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala ZD mursaleen Maulana Muhammad wa ala le he was hubie woman Sylvia homeware son Elijah Medina about respecting brothers elders sisters salaam aleikum wa Taala.

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

As all of us are aware of the current headlines

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

regarding the Coronavirus I thought

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

it is a good time for us to reflect

00:00:39--> 00:00:40

where we are,

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

who we are and who's in control.

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

All this shows us

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

that so Pamela,

00:00:56--> 00:01:00

the power and the coda of Allah subhanho de

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

la hawla wala quwata illa Billah

00:01:06--> 00:01:13

nothing moves, nothing goes up, nothing goes down, nothing goes sideways. There is no power.

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

besides Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once said,

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

So, shall I not tell you something with guns

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

mean colluvial Jana

00:01:31--> 00:01:41

I think we should which he is a treasure from the treasures of genda consume in the perusal agenda, a treasure from the treasures of Jenna.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

recite La hawla wala quwata illa Billah

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

and another generation of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:01:55--> 00:02:05

that a per recite La hawla wala quwata illa Billah profusely for it removes harm.

00:02:06--> 00:02:15

It removes 99 harms. And the smallest of those harms is poverty.

00:02:17--> 00:02:26

The smallest of the harms that 99 harms that are how Allah wala quwata removes his poverty.

00:02:28--> 00:03:00

And this is why a believer is required not only to recite it, but to believe it. That to believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala is ultimately the one who is in control. Nobody other than a last panel up Allah is in control. Upon occasion, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me Ibis, who was his cousin, and he was sitting behind him, is a young man. Let me tell you something,

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

if the entirety of humanity

00:03:06--> 00:03:15

was to gather on one plane, so the first man and the last man were together on one plane,

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

and they wanted to harm you,

00:03:21--> 00:03:26

they would only harm you that which Allah had decreed for you.

00:03:28--> 00:03:41

If the first man and the last man, were on one plane, and all of them wanted to harm you, they would only harm you that much, which Allah subhanaw taala wanted them to harm you.

00:03:44--> 00:04:12

What was the message of Allah saying that understand, that man can harm you know that people can't harm you, but they will only harm you what Allah has decreed for you. And if the entirety of humanity from the last first man until the last man were gathered on a plane, and they wanted to benefit you, they would only benefit you that which Allah has decreed for you.

00:04:14--> 00:04:24

Nothing more than that. The hola wala quwata illa Billah everything only happens what Allah has decreed. And this is why

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

when you hate them,

00:04:29--> 00:04:40

their mom says order more often says, Hey Allah, Allah, what do you read? Hi Allah, Allah revive the prayers. Hola Hola. quwata illa Billah

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

because the tofik that you're gonna get from Allah to pray this Allah is only gonna come from Allah subhanho wa Taala you know you are incapacitated. So even for Salah hi lol fella come towards success.

00:05:02--> 00:05:26

What do you recite the hola wala quwata illa Billah only what you owe Allah have decreed is gonna happen, you are in total and utter control and nobody other than Allah subhanho wa Taala is in control. And this is why in another generation in a verse of the Quran, when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants something to happen

00:05:27--> 00:05:32

ajeeb Look, look at this, Allah says in the Quran, good for you.

00:05:33--> 00:05:44

Now you've heard this verse many times, that when Allah wants something to happen a matter to happen, he says to it, good for you Good.

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

So this is how we understand it, good for your code. So how we understand it is letters

00:05:53--> 00:06:20

that Allah uses letters, and then the letters This is how we understand then the letters come out of the mouth, and then the mouth then they reaches the A drums and then the agent that goes down to the a drum that doesn't apply to Allah. That is for you and I to understand, when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants something to happen Alice Pamela do good for your good, but in a manner that even you and I cannot proceed

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

in a manner that you and I cannot perceive. There is no letters involved here.

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

When Allah it happens as soon as Allah subhanho wa Taala wants it to happen.

00:06:34--> 00:06:40

And this is why look, Allah creates that which is large alarm creates that which is small.

00:06:41--> 00:06:53

Alarm creates everything you know one of the objections that the machine actually had. They said, you know, God, Allah speaks about the flies.

00:06:54--> 00:07:09

He speaks about the bees, he speaks about all the small thing he speaks about mosquitoes. Why does Allah engage in speaking about the small thing, Allah is Aleem?

00:07:10--> 00:07:17

Allah is immense. Why is Allah subhanaw taala speaking about this, this was one of the objection that the machine again had.

00:07:18--> 00:07:27

So Allah subhanaw taala says in the law yesterday, Muslim Baba Yaga Baba, Baba OVA Tama fuqaha,

00:07:28--> 00:07:35

that Allah is not shy, that He gives the example of bamboo, the Buddha beats a mosquito in that

00:07:38--> 00:07:43

Walmart fuqaha or that which is even smaller than that.

00:07:45--> 00:08:16

Because if people can take a lesson from it, Allah will give that example. Now the key thing is that Allah gives the examples of elephants of large things, and he gives this small thing and this is a miracle of Allah subhanaw taala. You know, generally when human beings are building something, so they build, say, the first computer, the first computer was large, and then they get expertise over a period of time that computers get smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller.

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

You remember the first mobile phone? Yeah, it was like a big boy. You call it the brick.

00:08:24--> 00:08:42

It was like a brick. Now you have these small mobile phones, which are actually more powerful. Even even the earliest computers. The first clocks were large. Now you have small little clocks. Why? Because people have reached an element of perfection.

00:08:43--> 00:08:53

For Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says, you know that little mosquito that I created that little mosquito, that is my perfection.

00:08:54--> 00:09:04

Good for your goon is said it and he became that little mosquito. And that big elephant, both of them for Allah, it's good for yakun

00:09:06--> 00:09:21

he says it and is done. For other human being you have to reach your perfection. Imagine you have an elephant the big legs. You can see the eyes. You can see the A's and then Allah subhanaw taala creates the mosquito

00:09:22--> 00:09:46

or even small Omar FOCA or even smaller than the mosquito that you cannot actually even see. You can see it but if you want to see the legs you have to dissect it. You want to see the eyes you might have to put it under a microscope. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah doesn't care what you think. Allah gives all the example that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to give.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

And this is why throughout history, you see the power and the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala look at the story of Musa a salatu salam wa alayhi salatu salam came to

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

And musala salatu salam O Allah gave him a number of miracles. One of those miracles was that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him locusts. And these locusts came after the drought and the flood. So after the flood, they had this amazing crop

00:10:21--> 00:10:36

and they and the cops and for our very, we're very happy that we got all these and we're gonna have a good harvest. So Allah subhanaw taala wanted to show him his power than Allah subhanaw taala centum locusts.

00:10:37--> 00:10:49

And those locusts came and they ate up all the crops and they couldn't do anything about it. The one who said hon kumala Allah could do nothing about it.

00:10:50--> 00:10:58

Until they went to musala salatu salam and they said to Musa Musa, you're you claim to be an OB, please remove

00:10:59--> 00:11:12

the locusts, so Moosa and we will allow the bunnies of our ear to go free. And moose la salatu salam, when he made dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah remove the locusts but for our own being Pharaoh.

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

What is the next thing that surrounded

00:11:16--> 00:11:34

the next thing that I did? Was that he kept them behind? He actually started persecuting them more than before. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala said What am I am watching this? What am I yeah, la modelo de la Who?

00:11:35--> 00:11:41

You know your lives army. Allah says in the Quran. You know Allah army only Allah knows his army.

00:11:43--> 00:12:18

Only Allah knows his army with Abu Sufyan came on the Battle of 100 key said this will be the final battle 11,000 men marched on Medina largest army that that part of the world that ever ever see. And he said this will be the final battle. And the problem is Allah Allah solemn told us a harbor to dig trenches. So between the army of Abu Sufyan, 11,000 and the Muslim was just 2000 in number 1000 Manasa t 2000 true Muslims. And they had internal enemies as well.

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

And Abu sufian is just waiting for opening because he believes that the Muslims will never ever be able to defend these numbers and 11,000

00:12:32--> 00:12:52

to the teeth. The Muslims have eaten for days, probably some Muslims got two stones tied to his stomach, and 15 days elapses. And Allah brings a wind which outputs the tense of Abu Sufyan and the army well my brother in law who only Allah knows his army.

00:12:54--> 00:12:57

Everything is Allah as army so imagine for your own

00:12:59--> 00:13:00

what happens is around

00:13:01--> 00:13:20

so for our honorable como Allah now Allah say and the next thing Allah sends them it what lice imagine so much lice. So much lice that life becomes unbearable for the cops. It doesn't touch the bunny Sir, he

00:13:22--> 00:13:42

the bunnies, right Isla not affected at all. But it destroys the cops. The cops can't go to sleep at night. They can't do any work because they're on their heads. They're on their skin and they can't live a life until life becomes unbearable. And this one lie he's the power of Allah.

00:13:43--> 00:13:55

That lice that little insects that Allah sends upon them an Arab bukom Allah Allah I am your highest Lord. He would say they can't do anything. totally and utterly incapacitated.

00:13:57--> 00:14:16

Because the hawla wala quwata illa Billah Allah is the one in control, they go to mus la salatu salam again, they plead with Musa Musa, please ask your Lord to remove the light we can't live. Moosa makes a dua, Allah removed and he goes back to his own old ways.

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

And then Allah subhanaw taala says upon them What?

00:14:24--> 00:14:46

harmless things like frogs harmless, you have them in your back gardens? harmless, but when Allah wants to use these harmless things as his army, nobody can stop them. The generations mentioned, every time they would pick up their utensil, there would be a frog underneath it. They would cook something they would open a utensil a frog inside it,

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

and bearable.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

They go to musala salatu salam, and they say Musa make dua to Allah, Allah make dua or that he removes this calamity.

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

So musala salatu salam makes a dua and alas Juan de la removes it and then around goes back to his old ways.

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

He goes back to his old ways.

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

Then the the source of life, the source of life water.

00:15:23--> 00:15:32

So, what Allah subhanaw taala did is that the water whenever they would open the utensil, what would be in their utensil?

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

It would be blood.

00:15:37--> 00:16:09

They will try to drink it will be blood, they will go to the Bani Israel. And they will say okay benissa la water is water. So they would go to the bunnies, right? And they will bring their pot of water to their home, when they will come home and they would open it it would be blood. Then it got so bad. They said, Okay, let's go to the bunnies, right? Let's make the bunny ears pour the water in our mouth. So the bunny slide will get the water, they will pour in the mouth. By the time it left the utensil and reach their mouth, it would become blood.

00:16:11--> 00:16:16

Allah used the source of life as his army.

00:16:17--> 00:16:23

You and I all grew up hearing the story of Ruth

00:16:24--> 00:16:58

Mahmoud was the man who regarded him as as Lord, the man who's through Abraham and I slept slam into the fire, who expelled Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, they will Islam says that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent an angel four times, four times to nabru to give him Dawa. And every time like for your own, he would say, Please, no Lord besides me, I am the Lord. I am the one. I am the one who controls everything here.

00:17:00--> 00:17:06

And upon the fourth time, the angel said to him, okay, if you are the Lord then gather your people.

00:17:07--> 00:17:21

So he gets his own his people from his kingdom. And the durations mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala sent these flying insects from the heavens that they covered the entire heavens.

00:17:22--> 00:17:28

You couldn't see anything. The sun was blocked out. That's how many Allah sent.

00:17:29--> 00:17:41

Not these little insects, like Allah subhanaw taala sent those little birds to destroy the army of abraha abre major army

00:17:43--> 00:18:17

with his elephants, and when Abdulmutallab came to him, and Abdulmutallab said to him, he was the grandfather or the professor la sala. And he said to abraha he said, Give me my camels back. He said, What kind of man are you? You are the leader of grace, the leader of Makkah, I've come to destroy your Kaaba, your holiest place, and only thing you're worried about is your camels. It says, You know why? Because the camels belong to me as for the house of Allah subhanaw taala. At his Alice house, Allah will protect it. And Allah says the above be

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

one, one stone in a stomach, once a stone in a big queue in their claws, that's it. And then ration mentioned so small little birds with small little pebble, warmer Roma, tomato, Allah, Allah Rama, but when, when Allah throws, nothing could stop it. So those small pebbles fall from the heavens, and they hit the people in with such ferocity that Rachel mentioned that they would go from the head out to the other end.

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

So Allah sent these to numb Ruth.

00:18:57--> 00:19:08

And they come and they fill up the heavens, and these little insects come and destroy his entire kingdom, entire kingdom.

00:19:10--> 00:19:25

Imagine then Rachel mentioned that they ate away and the only thing left was the bones. But Allah wanted to show that there was only one big in control. So what did Allah do? Allah left the mood alive.

00:19:27--> 00:19:34

And he made one of those small insects can you can imagine how small they were. Some say they were mosquitoes

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

that a went through a pitch nose.

00:19:39--> 00:19:40

And they reach these head

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

and they would give him so much to cleave. It was give him so much discomfort that he would take a shoe and he would hit his head. He's got nobody left around him. Because Allah wanted to show him the who is in actually control. And this is how the man who regarded himself

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

As the ultimate power as the Lord Allah subhanho wa Taala destroyed him through what? A little insect because the Hola, wala quwata illa Allah because Allah is the one who is in control. There is no control.

00:20:18--> 00:21:08

There is no uoa besides Allah subhanho wa Taala and what like if you are me and you have grown up with this story of num, Ruth, the small insect and look at the time that we live in the hola La quwata illa Billah one virus, not an insect, a virus. A virus is 1000 times smaller than a bacteria. You can't normally you cannot see a virus through a microscope. This virus has locked down the world. The hola wala quwata illa Billah Amaya Anima Judah Rebecca Allahu only Allah knows his army look look at the world. You go to the you go to the stores, toilet paper, it's finished. All the flowers finished all the rice it's finished.

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

People are storing up

00:21:13--> 00:21:18

for what a thing something which is Avon. You can't even see it.

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

who's in control?

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

the ACS would say

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

I don't believe in God.

00:21:29--> 00:21:39

That we say would you believe in a Coronavirus? Yeah, of course I believe in the Coronavirus. Have you seen the virus? No, I haven't seen the virus but I've seen the impact of the virus.

00:21:41--> 00:21:47

But you haven't seen God and you don't believe him? But that you see the impact of Allah all around you.

00:21:49--> 00:22:05

You see the impact of Allah Oh, there are all these signs if the sick man is a sign of the virus, that all this creation around you the sign that Allah exists, and Allah the Creator, while a Hola, La La Villa.

00:22:06--> 00:22:21

And brothers and sisters, there's no way it means that you may bring a correlation here that those who have died to the core through the virus or some roads have some fear owns but what I want to take from this

00:22:22--> 00:22:24

is a law is in control.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

A lot is the dual

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

allies the more

00:22:31--> 00:22:43

allies the Holic allies, the Rasul Allah is the sub people overall. It is only Allah and only Allah. It starts with Allah and it finishes with Allah.

00:22:45--> 00:22:49

And we must always keep Allah in the equation on anything that we do.

00:22:50--> 00:23:10

This will lie he should make us believe that we are nothing. We have no Kuma, who is the hero Mahmoud. Who is acid. Who is Zaid, who is Khalid? Nobody. Allah is the dua

00:23:12--> 00:23:19

and we make dua that Allah subhanaw taala make this source of us becoming closer to Allah subhanho

00:23:20--> 00:23:44

wa Taala all those who are afflicted by this all the believers who are afflicted by the Allah subhanaw taala grant them Shahada that Allah subhanaw taala make things easy for us that allows Pamela those who are ill that Allah subhanaw taala grant them chiffon grant them cure and also that Allah Subhana Allah allow us in times of difficulty because in times of difficulty that will your real colors come through

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

it shouldn't be just enough see enough see.

00:23:51--> 00:24:07

Because that's the the day of gamma even the ambia will be saying Nazi Nazi. But today you see time slight difficulty. Slight difficulty, the Nazi Nazi No, no, let me take everything. Let me show you who my family forget about anybody else shouldn't be like that.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

This is a nice little test from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:14--> 00:24:25

If you keep a la ha, they're modeling this. If you keep alive in front of you, then one lie This is a time for us to come closer a man to become stronger in Allah subhanaw taala. But if not,

00:24:27--> 00:24:30

then this shows our true colors.

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

would also like to add because I was speaking to a brother.

00:24:35--> 00:24:47

Earlier on that how do we regard this as an Islamic approach? I spoke in detail last week. Yeah, what the plagues and sickness etc. Today, I just want to make it more practical.

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

My take on this is

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

is that we take the government's guidance on it, even if we don't necessarily agree with it. 100% overall

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Why? Because there's 70 million people. If 70 million people force their opinions, then in difficult times you have anarchy.

00:25:07--> 00:25:13

And anarchy is no good. Like we saw elements of anarchy in Italy.

00:25:14--> 00:25:28

And we will take the government's guidance on it with the consultation of the allama. What is the dean and the Sherry essay on this? Let me give you an example of this. This morning, I was speaking to a brother over the

00:25:30--> 00:25:40

water thing. And he had a cough and a fever. I was meant to meet him today. And he said he won't be coming. So I told him to have it checked up. So no, no, I don't want to be isolated.

00:25:42--> 00:25:52

I said, it doesn't matter. What about you? What about the other individual that you may come in? contact you a healthy guy. But what about the people who have

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

weak lungs, have diabetes have other things? Therefore, it's not just about you and I. So if anybody does have these symptoms,

00:26:05--> 00:26:22

then you should isolate yourself because you may be fine. Not many people in their 20s and 30s and 40s are possibly dying from it. But what about if you come into contact with a breach or a 78 year old who has underlying illnesses and sicknesses?

00:26:23--> 00:27:03

Do you actually want to be a cause of that person falling ill unwell or even possibly dying? And this is why we need to be considered La la la la de la fille Islam. The Hadith mentions that la that we do not harm ourself and we do not harm other people in this Deen. So two things are reiterate one thing that we take guidance from the Lama on this issue, and secondly, where we take the guidance of the government guidance on this and we make what Allah subhanaw taala give us all our fear, keep us all well, that Allah subhanaw taala allow this to be a source of us becoming closer to him and not further away, but at the love He comes up and we love him salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
