Imam Suhaib Webb takes us on a journey through Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani work and shares with us a section of his book related to plagues. So let’s hear the Khutbah and know more about Imam Ibn Hajar.
In this virtual Khutbah, Imam Suhaib Webb starts with a beautiful recitation of the Holy Quran with the Qari Tarek Khalil. Then he continues to talk about how we should have faith in the time of crisis, and how scholars sought refuge in religion and tried to turn the times of plague into times of blessing. And how the true believers have a strong spirit that prophet Muhammad - Peace be upon him- said “I am amazed by the affairs of the faithful, because for them any affair is good. if they are blessed, they are thankful, and if they are afflicted, they are patient. If they are thankful, it is good for them, and if they are resilient and patient, it is good for them.” Imam Webb continues to emphasize that at these hard times it is important to return to the true religion and how he wants to assist because he knows how important the role that religion plays during these periods and how it makes sense even more than other sciences and philosophies, and that by following the truth we shall find an exit from distress.
