TURN TO ALLAH IN EVERY HARDSHIP AND PANDEMIC

published on July 17, 2020

This year of 2020 and especially in the spring season has been a wake-up call we are living under a pandemic this is an international phenomenon and it is testing and trying humanity and especially the Muslims we are under I believe a special test with our faith

We're under the test that we need to look at ourselves and our practices is our Islam based upon rituals is it based upon praying in a building is it based upon certain gatherings or is our faith universal dynamic flexible is it

Something that we can take to any part of the world and live in any circumstances in looking at the Masjid the Prophet SAW seldom actually has told us he said that the earth was made for me as a Masjid and a place of purity so

Anywhere you find a place a believer you can pray so we pray in Masjid buildings we pray outside we pray on the ocean we pray on the mountains there's a flexibility you pray standing in prostration in sitting you pray when

You're well you pray when you're sick that is a crucial concept to us that our faith is dynamic it can help us overcome any obstacle the second point is in our relationship to the Book of Allah the Quran itself which is the last testament

Do we really believe in this book or is it just a book of tell our that you read or that you put on the Shelf or that you hang around your neck we need to fully believe in the book we not only read it we reflect upon it and we implement it

We live the verses that Allah has revealed to us and allah subhanaw taala has revealed in surah to lock in the second and third eye as the second and third verses bismillahir rahmanir rahim' romania

Tequila allahu maharaja we are zu kommen hazel a artisan romania tawakkal allah he for who has boo in na la Habana calumny but j allah llahu li kulli shayin but allah has revealed and whoever has the consciousness of allah

Then allah will make a way out for him and provide for him from where he knows not and whoever depends upon Allah that Allah will be sufficient surely Allah will reach his purpose and he has made a limit to all things this is a very

Important section of the book of allah subhanaw taala because when we look at our situation today the pandemic and the fear that's in the land and and the people dying it is telling us clearly showing us two concepts to taqwa and

TOEIC oh la la la and that is the consciousness of allah that we fear and law and hope in the mercy of allah and dependence upon allah subhanaw taala and in looking at taqwa looking at the concept of a loaf and fear fear is that

Knowledge or that belief that something coming to us has got a Hamas and so you see an animal and you know that that is a predatory animal and so you fear the results because that animal will tear you apart and so fear then comes in to

The heart of the believer or the person and can have devastating impact that fear is good for a sinner because if the person is committing sins then they need to fear allah subhanaw taala they need to need to fear the punishment of the

Next life but the opposite which is the balance of taqwa is hope for the believer is a balance between fear and hope and that hope is in the mercy of Allah Azza WA JAL and that is the type of shield the spiritual shield

That Allah gives us the second point is that it is taka la la la because taqwa remember if you have taqwa it will give you a much it'll give a way out from a place you don't know so that talk about that consciousness of Allah can help us

In the circumstances that we're in and Allah can help us from a place that we don't even know the second point is to depend upon allah subhanaw taala and this is the concept of Turku and this concept the scholars have looked at it

It's very important point for us because torkoal is really made up of three pillars one is knowledge and the second second is the state of Torah and the third are the deeds emanating from the Torah or the dependence itself the

Knowledge is the knowledge of the divine oneness the more we understand the omnipotence of allah subhanaw taala the more we understand his names his descriptions and the powers that Allah is over all things that there is no Adam

On earth there is no virus there is no plan nothing that can do anything without the permission of allah subhanaw taala the more we understand this this is really the foundation of our dependence

On Allah but also coming out of this is a state that we are yet and so when we have that understanding of the divine oneness it should leave us in a state of dependence dependence says Imam al-ghazali in his his a lot of iron for

Your solar team one of the great thinkers of Islam you can have dependents or different levels you can have dependents in the same way that a person depends upon a lawyer to go in front of the judge and

To litigate for them and so you sit back and you depend on your lawyer and you believe that your lawyer will represent you in the right way and he goes forward to the judge the second level which is a highest state of dependence that is the

State of the baby of the child who is in complete dependence on their mother and so the child is in that state of dependence with whatever the mother says it naturally follows but it's not the highest state because the child can cry

So sometimes the child complains to the mother and tries to get something of its will but ultimately will submit to the mother's will the third stage of this dependence is the corpse it is the dead body literally in the hands of people

Who are preparing it for a burial the corpse can do nothing and it is in total dependence upon those who are there and so this state is critical for us to understand and to recognize that the state leads into deeds okay so first we

Have our understanding then it puts us in a in a framework and then deeds come out of it the wrong understanding of dependents or those who say okay I depend upon a lot so I will abandon everything I don't need to work I don't

Need to have a wife or husband in order to have a child I'll surrender myself to two forces know the balance – that is our Islamic lifestyle it is the Sharia it is the the sacred law you know which balances that for us coming from the

Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him who said depend upon Allah can tie your camel it's a very straightforward example you believe in a love which I'm not going to let the animal run around anywhere

And so the deeds that we have in dependence upon allah subhanaw taala should emanate from four things one is to acquire benefits that are absent and so if you want to have a child you get married you have a relationship

If you want crops then you plant the crops you make an action and then you depend upon Allah subhanAllah the next point is to preserve that which is present so those things that you have you preserve it Allah gave us our bodies

Gave us our children our lives you protect it from forces that are around you and you do that by repelling harm repelling the harm and the fourth is to remove the house and so literally what is happening with the coronavirus is

That by depending upon allah subhanaw taala in the balanced way of the believers then we depend upon allah but we removed the harm we protect ourselves we take precautions take all the precautions and

Then depend upon Allah support Allah because ultimately speaking Allah is the controller of all affairs and we need to submit to him to turn to him and to ask allah azza wajal to help us in these difficult moments

May Allah support Allah protect us may Allah protect us from the evil that is around us may Allah support Allah protect our children may Allah protect our homes may Allah neutralize any of the negative viruses and bacteria and

Microbes may Allah support Allah give us that comfort that if we are struck by the virus that Allah would protect us that Allah would raise us in health and if he takes our life he would give us the reward of Shaheed of Amara in the

Path of allah subhanaw taala may Allah make this a state that we are in to change the OMA to bring us together to end the wars that we are in and to give us a new consciousness that we can come out of

This as true believers and under the mercy of allah subhanaw taala getting the best in this life and the hereafter Roberta our Jennifer Doudna husana will fill our karate husana for pin 11 ah but held on gender male Dubrow yeah Aziza
