Coronavirus and the Events of the Last Days

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

Fenton, Michigan USA 8, May 2020

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Peace be upon you and Allah's Mercy and Blessings.

May your Ramadan be blessed. Allah (swt) has treated us generously with His Kindness and His Generosity and Munificence and His giving us everything that is best, and His Love. Allah granted this month as a bounty for all of us and for the Ummah of the Chosen Prophet (s).

Where to begin? I do not know. Where shall we end? I do not know. Awliyaullah are asking among themselves, "When will this calamity end?" The answer came, "Let no one enter or

interfere in the Power of Allah with regard to what He has commanded," so let us just follow.

This a Divine Matter. It is not for the lavishing of Mercy, but it is by Divine Decree a darkness coming down on the whole Ummah, on the whole humanity, because they do not follow the Way of the Prophet (s) and his love after Allah (swt) has honored us with love of the Prophet (s) we did not follow his way, except for some Muslims, here and there, and some of those who uphold the faith systems, here and there. They followed and they trod the path of righteousness.

We are waiting for changes in the world and changes that shall take place very soon towards the Hereafter.

Don't say we there is no way for us to know. 1500 years have passed and the hadith of the Prophet (s) never comes to an end. It still teaches us and we must follow. If we don't follow we ourselves shall end up in a place that is not good for us.

Momentous events are going to take place. Since 50 years ago or more, Mawlana Grandshaykh Abd Allah ad-Daghestani (q) has told us of them and they are recorded with us. He said that out of every seven, six will die and one will remain as punishment for failing to follow. And we were telling ourselves 50 years ago, "How will this take place that out of every seven six will die and only one will remain."

We are commanded not to follow our own opinion and asking ourselves "how" but rather to follow our liege-lord the Prophet (s) and the Awliya and the Owner of this time which is al-Mahdi (as). This time we are living in, we are not the owner of this time, but he is. This is the time of Sainthood (wilayah) and the believers in al-Mahdi (as) and his way as shown by the appearance of certain signs and certain things that tell of vast events that are going to take place and vast phenomena that will spread and many people have died, and they are predicting that more and more will be dying.

And that is what we are seeing as the prediction that most people will die. We must therefore follow the preparations taught by Awliyaullah and their own readiness. and the reading of the hadith that the Prophet (s) brought about the events of the End Times. Strife and dissension will appear that will stun the young and the old. The old will feel that big events have appeared and will continue to appear and other events that will not appear even though some people are predicting they will and what appears of fatalities every day are pointing to the death of the Community as a whole.

We hope that we shall strive and do our best so that this does not actually become a fait accompli. However, this is a matter that shall take place, no doubt about it.

Praise, glory and thanks be to Allah, we shall see the one that shall be the bringer of glad tidings, religion-wise, namely a righteous man who shall appear for the betterment of the situation of the whole community and that is the well-guided Mahdi (as) about whom any events, sayings of the Prophet (s), under whose orders and striving that no less than 124,000 Awliyaullah have striven to follow. These saints strove and have done their best to follow, empowering themselves to take strength and power for safety, cleanliness, holiness and peace on you. Whoever recites this phrase "As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh" which means safety, cleanliness, holiness and peace on you and His holy blessings and protection, shall be in the shade and canopy of these readings of events and the reading of hadiths into these events.

We have many reports, especially the sayings of the the Prophet (s), whereby we have published a book in English about the events of the Last hour [and that book is Approach of Armageddon] and it mentions the situations and states of the Ummah, in the sense of everyone after the time of the Prophet (s).

So do not take these things lightly, but place right before your eyes and contemplate them. It is a strike force of a mortal blow, if the Ummah does not cease from strife and dissension, fitna, then the Ummah will be afflicted and smitten by what struck `Ad and Thamud, the extinct nations of old.

Opinions differ but truths are one and the same, they are immutable. We ask and pray that Allah Almighty to forgive us and to keep us far from those things because we shall live to see those times. Not necessarily all of us, but it may well be that some of the youngsters have reached the era of the Mahdi (as). I am recounting you whether they recount to you or not, there is no impediment to the appearance of the Owner of this Time [i.e Sayyidina al-Mahdi (as)] and there is no obstacle to his appearing at the times of these upheavals, as it is a Divinely-ordained matter.

Glory, praise and thanks be to the Lord of the worlds, and the ultimate gain and the ultimate abode is for those who guard themselves and there is no enmity except against wrong-doers.

And we hope that we will all understand the power of al-Mahdi (as). Indeed Mawlana Shaykh says, may Allah sanctify his secret, meaning his heart, that how will you recognize the signs and portents of al-Mahdi (as). It is that you take a whole bean of large size, place it on your right hand, and look at it after it is cooked, and you will see that its surface is like the surface of a mountain. The believers shall see that with their eyes, while the non-believers will look at that thing and think it something strange, but what is truly strange is that you non-believers fear other than Allah (swt).

Peace and the blessings of Allah be upon you. Strive and do your best, before time runs out. Strive and do your best and struggle with Truth.

Struggle before time ends. Struggle in the way of truth. We are callers to peace and nothing else and this is making peace with one's Lord. When you say I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and Muhammad (s) is His Prophet and with love in your heart for the Prophet (s), and with your speech about Allah and your declaration of the unity of the One God, and your love of the righteous ones, you shall enter it, that’s a certainty, through the door of peace, inshaAllah. You will enter from one door to another, from one door to another, until the doors end and you attain to what is sought.

You will enter from one door to another, from one door to another, until the doors end and you reach to what is sought. So continue striving until you reach what Allah has intended for you and the Truth emerges against falsehood.

وَقُلْ جَاء الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا

"Say verily Truth has come and falsehood has vanished." (Surat al-Isra,17:81)

Salam alaikum wa rahmatullah, peace be upon you and Allah's enveloping Mercy. We shall meet again tomorrow or after tomorrow insha Allah.
