Lessons to reflect upon from Convid19 (Corona Virus)

I begin with the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

"And say:" All the praises and thanks are to Allaah. He will show you His Ayaat (signs, in yourselves, and in the universe or punishments), and you shall recognize them. And your Lord is not unaware of what you do. " Qur'an 27:93

In my humble opinion, our attitude towards #CONVID19 should be that of reflection. What we have done & have been doing wrong of trying to relegate religion to the tail end. How we are pushing every ungodly agenda globally & how we seem to be uncomfortable with worshipping Allaah.

Man is extremely weak yet he sees himself strong and untouchable. Allaah says: ".... and man was created weak. Qur'an 4:28

Our century has witnessed & is witnessing one of the worst deviations from d truth. Everywhere you turn to, it's one ungodly thing or the other. We have become excessively arrogant in our disobedience to the Supreme being. One tiny virus #CONVID19 & the whole world has been humbled.

Allaah says: "And fear the Fitnah (affliction & trial) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict all the good & the bad people), and know that Allaah is Severe in punishment." Qur'an 8:25

The Arabs, the Africans, the Europeans, the Asians, the Americans, the whole world is chanting the slogan of freedom. This freedom is nothing other than the freedom to disobey Allaah. When this type of freedom is your right, then destruction is your lot. We have to repent.

Until we see #COVID19 and our collective plight as a consequence of our arrogance towards the Supreme being thereby having a moment of sober reflection to retrace our steps, we will not be able to bear the trials that will befall us.

When a tiny but mighty virus #COVID19 has subjected the entire world to solitary confinement, then we can as well use this moment to bond with our Creator and identify how weak and feeble we are. To identify our puopse in life. To identify our aspirations for the Hereafter.

He who knows the story of the past nations, their obstinence, their arrogance towards the Truth (worshipping Allaah Alone) and their open declaration of war against morality (all of which are present in our contemporary world) will not be surprised at how #COVID19 has humbled us.

My message is: we should know that our individual & collective acts of disobedience do not go unnoticed in the Sight of Allaah. We might have all the platforms to promote immorality & evil in the name of freedom, but Allaah surely has the entire universe under His control. Repent.

May Allaah protect us all against all forms of viruses. Spiritual and biological.
