*RUN TO ALLAH!*

*Allah Ta`ala is The Supreme Master of the universe. He created the sky and the earth with great care and beauty. He then filled creations in the world. Creations that live in pair. All this was done for us to contemplate on His grandeur and hence remember Him in prayer. After saying all that in Surah Az Zariyat verses 47-50, Allah Ta`ala exhorted us: ‘’Run to Allah!

’’*وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ (47) وَالْأَرْضَ فَرَشْنَاهَا فَنِعْمَ الْمَاهِدُونَ (48) وَمِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ (49) فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ إِنِّي لَكُمْ مِنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُبِين [الذاريات : 47 – 50]*

There is no place or no one who can protect us, can take us out or can improve our situation but Allah Ta`ala. The good come from him, he send bad situations, he created sickenesses and he send cure whenever He wants. So flee to Him for cure and improvement.*

*Hazrat Ibrahim a.s. glorifying Allah Ta`ala said: ‘’When I fall sick, He cures me.’’(26:80)*وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِين [الشعراء : 80]*The different situation of our life has an objective. To make us remember Allah Ta`ala with different du`as and actions in each everyone of them.*كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ وَنَبْلُوكُمْ بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ [الأنبياء : 35]‘’*Everyone has to taste death. And We test you through bad and good situations with a trial. And to Us you all will return.(21:35)*

*So whatever happens, we need to have conviction that Allah Ta`ala has decreed this fate for us and hence we need to turn to Him for the solution or to thank Him.**A du`as very scientifically coined by our beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam says: ‘’O Allah! I seek protection in Your satisfaction against Your wrath. And I seek protection in Your shield against Your punishment. And I seek protection in Yourself against Thyself. I really cannot praise You as it should be. You are worthy of what Yourself has praised Thee.’’(Sahih Muslim)*

صحيح مسلم – ()َ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى بْنِ حَبَّانَ عَنْ الْأَعْرَجِ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْفَقَدْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَيْلَةً مِنْ الْفِرَاشِ فَالْتَمَسْتُهُ فَوَقَعَتْ يَدِي عَلَى بَطْنِ قَدَمَيْهِ وَهُوَ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ وَهُمَا مَنْصُوبَتَانِ وَهُوَ يَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ أَعُوذُ بِرِضَاكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَبِمُعَافَاتِكَ مِنْ عُقُوبَتِكَ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْكَ لَا أُحْصِي ثَنَاءً عَلَيْكَ أَنْتَ كَمَا أَثْنَيْتَ عَلَى نَفْسِكَ*

This du`a can be read in our nafils in Sajdahs. This du`as mirrors that everything is in the possession of Allah Ta`ala and that the only recourse is Allah Ta`ala.**So when the ummah is struggling with no Hajj travel this year, Masjids closed, suppressions from oppressors, when borders are closed, no movement of international da`wa, when the pandemic waves coming one after the other, Masjid doors are closed and losing dear ones, then RUN TO ALLAH in repentance and istighfaar. Run to Allah in 5 daily prayers and especially tahajjud. Run to Allah, because there is no recourse but His. There is no cure but His. There is no openings to contractions/suppressions but His.**So instead of lamenting to authorities and governments, correct your own actions and wear more decent clothes as from today. Improve our attire and actions, Insha Allah you will see the sun rise on the opening of pious travellings.

*وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْقُرَى آمَنُوا وَاتَّقَوْا لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ بَرَكَاتٍ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلَكِنْ كَذَّبُوا فَأَخَذْنَاهُمْ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ [الأعراف : 96]‘’

*If the people of the towns believed and feared Allah, We would have opened for them blessings from the heaven and the earth, but they disbelieved. So , We seized them because of what they used to earn for themselves.’’(7:96)**It is the divine law that govern the affairs of virus, well being and daily life of humans on the earth.

So RUN TO ALLAH!*
