● The Morning is Near [02/04/2020]
“A’ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm.
“A-laysa ṣ-ṣuḥbu bi-l-qar īb” (Qur’ān 11:81) “Is not the morning near?” People, Muslims are asking when this thing will be over. Allah ﷻ answers in the Quran “A-laysa ṣ-ṣuḥbu bi-l-qarīb” (Qur’ān 11:81). He says morning is near. “Is morning not near?” asks Allah ﷻ. Everything has an end. Insha’Allah, this will end soon, however as we said before, even though this ends, everyone has his own end. The world has its own [end], and for everything there is an appointed time. These things will happen. It is going to be said, “Ya Hu!” and then these things too will pass by. All will pass by-good and bad. The world is not eternal, and people should think accordingly and prepare themselves. “Kullu akhir qarīb.” Every end is coming “near”. You say something had a year to happen it, and it happens after a year. You say such and such will happen after some years, and those too happen in time. Life goes by, and the life of the earth does too. So these situations will pass by Allah’s permission, too.
And this is good for us, and it is from the wisdom of Allah ﷻ! Accordingly, glad tidings must be spread. Believers, Muslims, should have hopes that good things will come in the future. Islam says to Muslims, to believers, “Give glad tidings! Be happy!” Allah ﷻ gives glad tidings always. For a Muslim everything is for his benefit! Even if it appears to be something bad. So, insha’Allah, [the current] manifestations of suffering will not effect [i.e, will not ultimately be harmful to] Muslims. It will effect rebellious people. They have nowhere to go for support. They live lives in futility. We ask for the support of Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ protect us and make it lighter. May Allah ﷻ protect us and give strength to our faith.”
