Mü’min kardeşlerim, bugün belalara karşı bütün insanlardan daha fazla tedbir almakla yükümlü olan Müslümandır. Bir virüs endişesi varsa, bunu ilk defa müslüman tedbir alarak önlemek için uğraşan insandır. Çünkü bilir ki Müslüman, virüs denen şeyi de yaratan Allah’tır, benimle virüsü karşılaştıracak olan da Allah’tır, tedbir almamı isteyen de Allah’tır, ben de Allah’a itaat sözü vermiş olan kulum, tedbir alıyorum der. Ve böylece Mü’min, üzerine düşeni yapar. Mü’min’e, temiz olun, virüs sana bulaşmasın, demeye gerek yok. Tedbirli ol, virüs sana bulaşmasın demeye, hacet yok. Mü’min zaten öyle insandır. Mü’min’e bir sağlık kuralı öğretildiğinde, ona itaat eder. Doktorun sözünü, müftünün sözü gibi dinler. Mü’minlik böyledir. Buna rağmen kardeşlerim, Allah’tan afiyet istiyoruz. Efendimiz Sallâllâhü Aleyhi ve Sellem Allah’tan afiyet isteyin buyuruyor. Allâhümme innî es-elükel âfiyete fiddünyâ vel âhirah Allahümme innî es’elüke’l ‘afve ve’l âfiyete fî dînî ve dünyaye ve ehlî ve mâlî böyle dua ederiz. Allah’ım dünya ve ahirette senden afiyet isterim. Ne demek afiyet? Dertsizlik demek, sıkıntısızlık demek. Allah’ım dünyam, dînim, çocuklarım, evim konusunda, senden afiyet isterim. Duamız böyle bizim. Dua budur. Bunu isteriz Allah’tan. Ama, Ebu Ubeyde İbnu’l-Cerrah radıyallahu anh şu toprakların üzerinde yürürken daha, Allah, Cebrail’i vasıtasıyla, ona, sen cennete gireceksin diye söz verdi. Peygamber sallallahu aleyhi ve sellem’e, etten, kemikten duvar gibi oldular. dünyada Allah’ın rızasını kazanıp, öyle yaşadılar. Ama Amvas taununda, şehit oldu. Bir taunda, vebada, Rabbine kavuştu. Demek ki, bu musibetler, belalar, kafirler içindir, bizde ne işi var? diyemeyiz. Allah, onları helak etmek için yok etmeyi murad etmiş olabilir, Mü’min’i de, tertemiz yapıp huzuruna almak için yok etmeyi murad etmiş olabilir. Allah’ın işine, kul karışmaz. Kul tedbirini alır, ağlar sızlar belki, dualar eder, ilaçlar kullanır, işine karışmaz Allah’ın. Buna biz tevekkül deriz. Teslimiyet deriz. Bugün, bu işleri, çok fazla karıştırarak burnumuzu yanlış yerlere sokuyoruz. Oradan virüs kapacak burnumuz da, bir daha ıslah olmayacağız. Birileri kalkıp diyor ki, bu, Allah’ın azabıdır gâvurlara. Öbürü de diyor ki, bu Allah’ın azabıdır sözü yanlış. E Allah’ın rahmeti midir diyeceğiz? Azabı değilse rahmetidir o zaman diyelim. Olur mu öyle? Bu nesidir Allah’ın? Şimdi onu konuşma zamanında değiliz. Bu azab olduğu kesin. Çünkü Müslim’de Resûlullah Sallâllâhü Aleyhi ve Sellem efendimiz Aişe anamıza buyuruyor ki, bu vebaları, taunları, Allah eski milletlere azab olarak gönderiyordu, Allah’ın kaderinde vardı bunlar. Dünya onun. Virüsü de o yaratıyor, Everest Tepesi’ni de o yaratıyor, okyanusu da o yaratıyor. Suyu da yaratıyor, mikrobu da yaratıyor. Allah bu, Celle Celâlühü. Eski ümmetlere, azab için bunu koydu Allah kaderine. İimdi Mü’min’e geldiğinde, Mü’min için mağfiret olur, günahlardan kurtulmak olur, cennet kazanmasına vesile olur, buyuruyor. Artık bu dünyada olmayacak buyurmuyor ama! sallallahu aleyhi ve sellem Efendimiz.
The world is facing one of the biggest health threats in recent years The Corona virus which started in the city of Wuhan in China is quickly spreading to Europe The number of those who died has increased to 132 as of January 29th Reports suggest that there are 6000 people infected The virus has been seen in 16 countries including China Besides China, it’s been know to spread to Japan, Thailand, South Korea, United States, Singapore, Vietnam and Taiwan It has been discovered in December 2019 with the name nCOV. It’s not as powerful as the acute respiratory infection SARS that was discovered in 2003 but… It’s suggested to be spreading faster It was reported that out of 8098 infected with SARS, 774 of them had died In another virus that outbroke in 2012, MERS, 858 people lost their lives A Chinese virologist suggested that the new Corona Virus could be 10 times bigger than the SARS outbreak Health professionals are extremely worried because the infection spreads rapidly After they enter the body, viruses try to take over the body’s own cells because viruses need the proteins/DNA present in our own cells They’ll try to invade the cell and make its own copies These copies are called replicates This way, they will spread rather quickly. The body’s own defense system will try to prevent this from happening The body will recognize the virus and produce certain chemicals to fight against the infection This will cause fever, headaches and the person will feel ill Chinese officials begun the construction of a new hospital for the treatment of Corona. They claim the building will be complete in 6 days Virus started spreading in Wuhan city of Hubei province On December 31st, the city’s health council closed down the seafood market in Huanan after 26 people were infected in the market Once the virus started spreading rapidly, the city of Wuhan was placed under quarantine Some images from the city of Wuhan Health professionals are waiting to measure the temperatures of those trying to enter the Subway They also started constructing another hospital that can house 1000 people for the treatment of the virus An ER unit in Zhongnan hospital As the quarantine increases, workers check for the citizens on public highway checkpoints A shopping center in Wuhan where masks have become part of everyday outfits Workers who are checking peoples temperatures in the airport One of those stations that was left abandoned Some Chinese factory workers making some masks in Handan city It’s been known that animals such as rats, snakes, baby wolves, foxes are sold in these markets in Wuhan It’s very likely that the virus began spreading following the consumption or contact of such animals Thousands of people in hundreds of cities are under quarantine and there are Turkish citizens there as well Turkey started operation “Big Joseph” to bring home the 35 Turkish and 10 Azerbaijani citizens These Turkish citizens will be brought home and placed in quarantine for 14 days and will be treated after all of the measurements are taken Chinese officials have also taken measures to close down most business to slow the spread China asked Tesla to shut down their facility in Shanghai temporarily Tesla complied and stopped production Tesla is not the only company affected by the Corona virus Google just announced that they’ve shutdown all of their offices temporarily Apple and Facebook restricted their worker’s travels to China Thousands of theaters have been closed and all of the films were delayed until further notice World Health Organization is planning an urgent meeting in Geneva Switzerland to announce a major crisis With all of these unusual events taking place, even a more interesting proposition has been made An ex-Israeli officer and an intelligence expert, Dany Shoham, made a very controversial statement Shoham said: “This animal-based virus could’ve been made in the laboratory for a very secret biological warfare project located in Wuhan” This lab is in Wuhan Institute of Virology It’s not yet possible to say whether the institute had anything to do with the Corona Virus That’s why the experts are not using a clear language on the topic since a lot is still unknown But the reported seafood market is only 32 kilometers away from the institute and this has left many question marks in people’s minds The measurements taken after the outbreak sound very similar to us They’re identical to the restrictions that the Chinese have placed on Uyghur Turks For example, the quarantine: It means to stop people from entering and exiting a place It’s just like the quarantine in East Turkistan where people are not allowed to leave and are in concentration camps People were banned from walking in the streets to stop the virus from spreading Unfortunately, this is very common in East Turkistan since 2009 Places of worship, hospitals, schools and almost any building you can imagine are completely closed In short, China is suffering the exact tortures that they placed upon the Uyghurs and their economy may crash if this continues for long On the Scale of Justice: we saw the result of mass killing of camels in Australia and today we see the events in China and as Muslims we pray! We pray because as Muslims, we can’t be tyrants to those tyrants Our prayers must have been heard because the Chinese President Xi has asked for Muslims to pray We already pray everyday but let’s pray again: May God help our Uyghur brothers in East Turkistan and may God wake up those Chinese tyrants who daily torture them! Amin…
This is how the story got started… China with a population of 1.4 billion Tortured our Uyghur friends in ways that are not even imaginable They force-married Uyghur Turkic women with Chinese men After seeing these events unfold… This is a country with a population of 1.4 billion, a huge economy and a tremendous growth, who’s going to stop them? How will this torture be stopped? Then I remembered… Allah, the one who stopped the pharaoh with an ant, the one who stopped King Antiochus with a fly, can sometimes shake the whole world with a small little microbe China can not export any products at the moment Most of the household products that we use today are produced in China All of their airports are shut down, all of their economy has to come halt, even Daud Kim who visited us last week, can’t go back to Korea because the borders are shut All of this was caused by a tiny little microbe named Coronavirus It’s suggested that there are many unreported cases and deaths worldwide And people who are exploiting these times are making money by selling at crazy high prices Let’s look at the things that have happened in 2020 thus far… Earthquakes in Elazig and Malatya cities resulting in deaths of 43 people… Avalanche in Van city resulting in 41 deaths 8 soldiers were martyred in Idlib/Syria An airplane crashed in a small airport in Istanbul resulting in 3 deaths and 180 casualties 34 soldiers were martyred in Idlib/Syria In Australian wildfires, 34 people died and 1 billion 250 million animals were killed In the same time, 5000 camels were killed in Australia There were 100,000 cases of the Coronavirus pandemic. In surah Al-Anfal it says… -“When fitnah comes upon you, it won’t only damage the tyrants among you!” When we further examine these catastrophies… The fact that these crazy events took place in under 3 months… Should wake us all up because they’re so meaningful. For example: You’re sitting at home one day and the door knocks… They’re knocking on the door loudly… You just keep living your normal life as if nothing happened But the knocking continues even faster You’re still sitting at home wondering where to noise is coming from.. The door is knocking even faster… Aren’t these noises trying to tell you something? When you hear this noise, you’ve to get up and answer the door! What if that earthquake is also trying to tell you something? If we just look at this from a theoretical, mathemetical viewpoint… -“The door knocked 3 times last minute… 2 more times 10 seconds ago -“The door was knocked 5 times with heavy hits” We’d respond by saying: “What’s wrong with you? There’s a purpose behind that knocking, get up and answer the door!” Don’t we do the same in an Earthquake… -“There was a 5.8 magnitude earthquake” We do the same in a virus… -“Thousands of people have been infected by a virus” We do the same in avalanches and other catastrophies -“There was an avalanche burying X number of people” -Is it possible that the one who caused the earthquake and the avalanche is trying to tell you something meaningful? -Yes, it’s possible -“I’m not happy with the direction of mankind, their sole purpose of creation is for them to recognize me but they’re so lazy in trying to understand my existence” In my personal opinion, this message is not only for the non-believers but also… These happen as a result of believers like us are acting lazy and complacent in creating projects to reach mankind And if you ask me, the fact that believers are behaving like the non-believers is going to attract more of these catastrophes in the future God’s wreckage is taking place and it’s saying: -“I’ve sent upon you earthquakes, avalanches, catastrophes and I knocked on the door Open the door… Why has the one with so much power and will has come all the way to your door? What message has it given you? What does it want from you? It wants you to finally understand it! 2nd of all… When you’re looking at the situations from the perspective of God, there’s a clear message Now let’s examine everything from the perspective of mankind What is my responsibility then? Submission to God… Appointing God as your sole attorney against all of the trials you’ve been put upto Let’s brake down submission to God 1st part, humans usually… Will not try/work their hardest… Will not take the necessary precautions… And will leave everything upto God This is a form of submission that God does not want For ex., if this virus is on our doorstep, Without taking such simple precautions such as washing hands properly and keeping contacts with other to a minimum.. Saying -“Wallahi I trust in God” Is not the submission to God that God is looking for! Let’s go to the 2nd part Humans will do everything they can but won’t leave the result to God This is not the form of submission that God wants A small microbe that my eyes can’t even see What can I do? I can wash my hands, be careful in public… I can try not to panic, try not to turn my life into a prison If after all of these steps, you’re still a little worried and you cry… -“God, what am I going to do? What will happen to me?” These cries are not how to submit to God either. God is not seeking this sort of a reaction This 2nd alternative can be understood easily by this example: You know how you study so much before a college final and stress immensely without having a true trust in God. That’s our 2nd example of submission and God does not want that The 3rd example: People will do the most they can with their abilities, take all the precautionary steps and leave the results to God They’ll say: -“Best thing that can happen to me is the final destination that you determined” This is how we should act After taking all of the precautionary steps that are necessary… We have to leave the rest to God and trust him Undoubtedly, this is the reality! Death that people are trying to run away from is the reality! We’re not running away because we’re scared of death… We’re scared of death because we’re running away from it Can you run away from God’s fate!?
THE GRASSHOPPER INVASION By taking 150 km way in a day grasshoppers have a capacity to consume food which could supply 35 thousands of people. In a square kilometre, their number is between 40 and 80 million. And now they are coming towards our country very fast. Is this a new disaster adding up to the other disasters of 2020? The news about “the grasshopper invasion is at the border of Turkey” pushed millions of citizens to search about the invasion of grasshoppers. Lately, Africa and Asia got invaded by grasshoppers. According to the news, The invasion which started in Africa also has reached out to Iran and Iraq, which are the neighbouring countries of Turkey. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations told that the grasshopper invasion could cause a food crisis. The attempts to undertake the grasshopper invasion has been unsuccessful. The United Nations says that the number of the grasshoppers has reached out to 100 millions and their number can be multiplied by 500 in June. This grasshopper invasion is the worst one among the ones happening in Kenya since 70 years and in Somali since the last 25 years. Of course, the only disaster happening nowdays is not the grasshopper invasion. The year of 2020 has been continuing to surprise us each and every day. For instance, because of the Corona virus, the UEFA Champions League and Europe League have been postponed. Cristiano Ronaldo who is one of the best football players of the world has been in quarantine due to the suspicion of Corona. The famous actor Tom Hanks, too, has been in quarantine. La Liga told that all the competitions are postponed until a second decision. MBA is also postponed. Real Madrid has put all of its players in to quarantine. In short, the world says “STOP” to all the crowds and pushes humanity to loneliness. Look how Allah brings the whole world to heel by using a virus which actually has no power (even lifeless) and a grasshopper which has no strength by itself. Allah reminds and shows people how incapable/weak human being is but not aware of this. Üstad Bediüzzaman Said Nursi says in Risale-i Nur that, Bismihi Subhanehu “Through its impotence, weakness, poverty, and need, my life acts as a mirror to the power, strength, wealth, and mercy of the Creator of life.” Allah gives babies whatever they need with their families’ hands because of babies’ weaknesses. Allah sets the Sun up and down, sends the rain down to give the needs of plants which are the weakest creatures. Just like all these, the salvation of us humans will be by understanding our weakness, poverty and need towards Allah. If we don’t understand, Allah warns us in Quran-ı Kerim, “So We sent upon them the flood and locusts (grasshopper) and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.”
There is an issue, on the media, tyrannizing the world: “Corona virus, spread out of China, is now in Turkey.” “Corona virus cases, seen in Turkey, is raised to 5.” “The trouble of corona virus is spread all around the world, after the death of more than 3000 people. Thoroughly, Corona threatens the whole planet.” “Europe is shocked and there is a chaos in Italy. The world follows up everything going on with fear.” “I suppose, at the moment, the issue is more than just a medical disease but has become something global. Just like a war. It has become a global war.” “The world has been drifting into chaos.” There are some points which troubles us. This is how we look at the events: I guess, He doesn’t want us at some places, does he? For instance, does the masjid want us? Which masjid? Masjid Al Haram. Does the mosque want us? Which mosque? Al- Aqsa Mosque. Do masjids want us? Which masjids? The private masjids in the world, mosques, religious institutions, dervish lodges, madrasahs, zawiyas… They tell us, “Don’t come anymore” with their language of behavior. “Because it is enough that you have been quite and have been a mere spectator. We don’t want you here anymore.” What we see on the surface is that an announcement was made and the heads of the countries told what not to do. NO! Basically, what is going on is that the sultan of the universe tells us, “ Don’t come anymore. We don’t want it. We don’t need your worshipping, praying and appeals.” Also on the other hand, another group is deprived from their own entertainments. Right now, casinos, night clubs, (excuse me) honky tonks, (excuse me) brothels, and all similar disgusting places where subhuman things goes on is closed. Of course, that is our happiness. However, there are things which saddens us, too. We won’t be able to go to Friday Pray, mosques and great masjids anymore. That means the owner of everything says that, “I don’t need you or what you do or what you want or what you beg for, or your heart and mind.” What He says is that, “I am the Sultan of the Universe. I am the one who is Samad. (Meaning need no one) I am the self sufficient one and you are in need. I can limit your needs with a little virus (even lifeless).” How weird is it, isn’t it? Right now, didn’t we give up on everything indispensable? Yes, we did. Aren’t all the hobbies delayed. Yes, they are. Holiday plans, all the “must” things are gone away. Even if your child or your mother or father, who you love more than your life and is your everything, gets corona virus, they will stay in a hospital where you can see only behind a glass but won’t be able to go near them. Right? So, have you ever thought how something which doesn’t know you at all, has no connection with you at all, and is something invisible can mess up your whole life. This is the same thing that we call as invisible hands in science fiction movies. We are experiencing a science fiction movie itself. Since the last 2 months, all the things we called “invincible” are defeated. Since the last 2 months, all the great powers which have a word on the world have been falling down. And now they all have to obey to what the virus tells us, on the surface. However, on the other hand, what we don’t see is that Someone with a great power says that He can destroy all the things you are talking about with an invisible power. Isn’t that so weird that calamities don’t remind us Allah anymore? Previously, people would say “Alhamdulillah” (All praise is due to Allah) even after sneezing but now we say “Corona Virus”. If we look from the negative side, these are the bringings of getting closer to doomsday unfortunately. If we don’t relate all the things in the universe to Allah: from the smallest virus (for instance corona virus) to the destructions of the great balances in the universe… then Allah would send small signals one by one like earthquakes, floods, fires… Am I not right? The world faced with 30 years of disasters only in this last 3 months. And still, only a virus is being talked everywhere so if the world face with something bigger than a virus, the world would come to a point of end. As we abandoned our “must” things, this reminds me a poem of Yunus Emre, “Land owner, property owner / And what about the original owner?/ Land is a lie, Property is a lie/ So come and play around a little, you too.”
Ein Thema tyrannisiert momentan die ganze Welt und die Medien. Das Coronavirus, was aus Wuhan (China) entstanden ist, ist mittlerweile auch in der Türkei angekommen. Die Coronavirus Fälle in der Türkei sind auf 5 angestiegen Nach 3000 Todesfällen, verbreitet sich das Coronavirus mittlerweile auf der ganzen Welt. Es bedroht mittlerweile die ganze Welt. Europa ist schockiert. In Italien herrscht Chaos. Die Welt schaut beängstigend zu. Ich denke, dass es ab jetzt keine Medizinische Krankheit mehr ist, sondern ein Globales. Wie ein Krieg. Es ist ein Globaler Krieg geworden. Die Welt wird in ein Chaos hineingerissen. Es gibt Punkte, die uns traurig machen. Wir schauen uns das Ganze so an. Sinan, ich denke Er (Allah) möchte uns an einigen Stellen nicht mehr sehen, stimmt’s? Als Beispiel: möchte uns die Moschee? Welche Moschee? Masjid Al Haram (Mekka). Möchte uns die Moschee? Welche Moschee? Al-Aksa Moschee (Jerusalem) Möchten uns die Moscheen? Welche Moscheen? Alle öffentlichen Moscheen auf der Welt. Moscheen, Bildungszentren, Kulturräume, Schulen Nonverbal, sagen sie zu uns, dass wir nicht mehr kommen sollen. Weil ihr geschwiegen habt. Es reicht, dass ihr nur zugeschaut habt. Wir möchten euch hier nicht mehr. Was sehen wir äußerlich? Die Regierungen haben Ansagen getroffen. Macht das und das nicht. Nein! Das grundlegendste was der Besitzer des Universums sagt ist, dass wir nicht mehr kommen sollen. Wir möchten es nicht. Wir benötigen eure Anbetungen nicht. Gleichzeitig, wurde die Unterhaltung (Spaß) verschiedener Gruppen entzogen. Zurzeit sind Casino’s, Unterhaltungszentren, es tut mir leid das zu sagen (Discotheken) (Bordelle) und ähnliche scheußliche Plätze, wo unmenschliche Sachen passieren sind geschlossen. Und das ist natürlich unsere Freude. Natürlich gibt es auch Fälle die uns traurig machen. Wir dürfen nicht mehr zu den Freitagsgebeten und Moscheen gehen. Das heißt also, dass der Besitzer uns, unsere Tätigkeiten, unsere Wünsche, unsere Anbetungen, unsere Weise, unsere Herze nicht benötigt. “Ich bin der Schöpfer des Universums. Ich bin der jenige der auf nichts angewiesen ist und nichts nötig hat.” “Ihr seid diejenigen die Bedürfnisse haben.” und Er sagt: “Eure Bedürfnisse kann ich mit so einem kleinen Virus einschränken” Wie seltsam oder? Habt ihr auf all eure Unverzichtbarkeiten verzichtet? ja! Wurden alle Hobbys verschoben?Ja! Reisepläne, alle Unverzichtbarkeiten sind weg! Sogar euer Kind, was ihr mehr liebt als euch selbst. Falls es im Krankenhaus liegt und hinter einer Glaswand wäre.. .. und einen schweren Corona Fall hätte. Oder eure Eltern, auf die Ihr nicht verzichten könnt. Würden sie hinter der Glaswand sein, könnten ihr nicht zu Ihnen rüber, stimmt’s? Denkt Ihr überhaupt nach? Etwas was euch nicht kennt. Etwas was nicht mit euch in Verbindung ist.. ..und etwas, was man nicht sieht, hat euer Leben durcheinander gebracht. Wie die nicht sichtbaren Hände in Science Fiction Filmen. Guck. Wir erleben jetzt das wahre Science Fiction Film. In 2 Monaten wurde alles besiegt, was angeblich nicht besiegt werden konnte. In 2 Monaten sind alle Weltmächte, sozusagen wie Puppen auseinander geraten. Sie mussten sozusagen dem Virus gehorchen. Das ist das äußerliche was man sieht. Aber in dem nicht sichtbaren Teil, hat der Allmächtige gesagt: “Die Ganzen Sachen die Ihr erzählt habt. All diese Sachen, kann ich mit einer nicht sichtbaren Kraft durcheinander bringen.” Unglücke bringen uns nicht mehr dazu an Allah zu denken. Wie interessant. Früher, als jemand genießt hatte, sagten wir “Elhamdulillah”(das Lob gebührt Allah) Jetzt sagen wir “Coronavirus”. Das hat uns die “Endzeit” im schlechten Sinne mitgebracht. Wenn wir vom kleinsten Virus aus, was sich Corona Virus nennt, dass die ganze Welt momentan durcheinander bringt.. …Wenn wir die Großen Verschlechterung des Universums nicht mit Allah verbinden… ..sendet Allah uns kleine Signale. Dann passieren Erdbeben, Überflutungen, Brände. In diesen 3 Monaten sind der Welt, Katastrophen wie für 30 Jahre zustande gekommen. Es wird momentan immer noch über ein Virus gesprochen. Falls es etwas größeres wäre, würde die Welt denke ich still stehen. Wir haben ja auf alles verzichtet, worauf wir nicht verzichten konnten.. ..Hier ist mir ein Sprichwort von Yunus Emre eingefallen: “Gegenstände sind unwahr, Besitze (Eigentüme) sind unwahr, wer ist der wirkliche Besitzer? Jetzt verweile bisschen auch du deine Zeit.”
Bir virüsün dünyayı bu hale getireceğini .. … birisi bize yıllar önce söylese, … … ya efsane derdik, ya da masal dinler gibi dinlerdik. – Kıyamet ve ahireti de efsane ve masal dinler gibi dinleyenler var. … Ama onlar da gerçek … – Günümüzde yaşadıklarımız … … tarihin görmediği bir kriz hadisesidir. – Gözle görülemeyen, elle tutulamayan, laf dinlemeyen bir virüs … … günlük hayatımızı adeta durdurma haline getirdi. – Ve bizim hayatımız , şimdiye kadar hiç bu kadar yavaşlamamıştı. – Tam da bu esnada , krizlerin herbirini fırsata çevirebiliriz. – Kriz dönemindeki fırsatlara eğer kainat kitabından bakacak olursak ; – Evet şunlar bizim için çok önemli. – Maddemizin biri şu: – Farkında mısınız? Bu dönemde hava kirliliği mükemmel bir şekilde azaldı. – Ve yanılmıyorsam , Venedikte kirlerinden dolayı görünmeyen …. … o meşhur Venedik’in nehri dahi tertemiz, belki tarihte ilk kez dibi görünür bir hal almış. – Dışlayıcı politika ve ideolojilerin arttığı tam da şu dönemde … … bir virüs geldi ve bize dedi ki: – Sen de dışlanan olmadan önce , bırak artık bu işleri – mesajını bize verdi. – Amacımızın ne olduğunu bilmeden, günlük 16 saat boyunca bi koşturma içerisindeydik. Ve virüs bize bir anda: – Dur, artık yeter – diyerek, bence kainata geliş amacımızın ne olduğunu tekrardan sorgulamamızı istedi. – Para ile geri dönüşünü sağlayamayacağımız … … ama bir bozuk para gibi kullandığımız zamanın ne kadar ehemmiyetli olduğunu … … ve ne amaç için kullanılması gerektiğini bize bir kez daha düşündürmüş oldu. – Maddi sorumlulukların adeta gözümüzü kör ettiği bir dönemde … … bir ailemiz olduğunu ve onlarla vakit geçirmenin ne kadar ehemmiyetli olduğunu açıkladı . – Bizim ailemiz sizsiniz tabii, kardaş 🙂 – Sarılalım mı? ) – Dostlara sarılmanın ne kadar önemli olduğunu bir kez daha hatırlamış olduk. – Zira bu dönemde artık sarılamıyor, aksine şöyle yumruklaşıyor , … … dirsekleşiyor, kafalaşıyor, uzaktan selamlaşıyor, garip hallere bürünüyoruz. – Ama hiçbiri şöyle ciğerden sarılma gibi bizi tatmin etmiyor. – Herkesin kendi bahçesini düşündüğü bencil dönemler yaşanırken, … … virüs bize tek çıkış yolunun toplum bilinci olduğunu … … ve kendimiz kadar komşumuzu da düşünmek zorunda olduğumuzu hatırlattı. – Paramız olsa dahi , bazı keyiflerimizden artık uzak kaldığımız bu dönemde … … virüs bize rızkımıza acaba, haram da karışmış olabilir mi? – diye bir düşünceye de sevketti. – Bir gün bir tanesi, arabası böyle sallanmaya başlamış. – Tam tamir ettireyim diye otomobilciye gidince … … demiş hocam bu arabanın rızkına haram karıştı demiş. – Ya nasıl haram karıştı falan deyince de … … bu arabanın benzinine su katmışlar hocam. – Haram olmuş buna, yememesi gereken birşey yemiş falan deyince … … biz de böyle arada sallanıyoruz ya. – Biz de mi acaba o durumdayız diye, insana bir düşünme fırsatı çıkıyor sanki. – Kıyamet koparsa dahi elindeki fidanı dik diyen bir Peygamberimiz varken , … … durumlar ne olursa olsun, ihtiyat ve tedbir aldıktan sonra , önlem aldıktan sonra, … … netice noktasında fetişliğe gitmeden … … gene elimizdeki hayırhah işleri en son noktaya kadar bence devam ettirmemiz lazım. – Özellikle böyle bir dönemde ciddi eksiği olan insanlar için tam bir uyanış zamanı. – Bazı tanıdıklarımız vardı, ben namazı çok istiyorum … … ama sureleri ezberleyemiyorum diyodu, işte tam onun vakti. – Bazı tanıdıkların vardı, çocukluğumdaki gibi ne zamandır , Kuran okuyamıyorum diyordu. – İşte hem de 3 aylardayken , tam onun ezber vakti. – Bazı tanıdıklarımız vardı, yahu kaza namazlarım vardı, hep içime oturuyordu diyordu. – Onları ikmal etmenin, tamamlamanın tam vakti. – Bazı tanıdıklarımız vardı, hocam namazlar iyi hoş ama, … … bence gece namazı ve teheccüd olmadan insanın ufku ve basireti açılmıyor diyordu. – İşte o gece namazlarını oturtup … … buram–buram Allah’a kul olduğumuzu hissetmenin tam vakti. – Tabi, üzüldüğümüz olaylar da var, bazı şeylerden mahrum kaldık. – Camilerden, medreselerden, ilimlerden, sohbetlerden , muhabbetlerden, … … devamında içilen can – cana , kan – kana , göz – göze çaylardan … bunlardan Allah bizi şimdilik mahrum eyledi. – Cami kapıları sıkıştığımız zamanlarda aklımıza gelirdi. – Şimdi filmlere konu olucak şekilde sıkıştık. – Ama cami de kapattı kapılarını bize. – Sanki razı gelmedi yaptıklarımızdan da, bir süre görmek istemedi bizi. – Risale-i Nur’da şöyle bir cümle geçer : – Eğer günahları düşünmüyorsan, yahut âhireti bilmiyorsan … … veya Allah’ı tanımıyorsan, sende öyle dehşetli bir hastalık var ki, … … milyon defa sendeki bu küçük hastalıktan , bu küçük mikroptan … … daha büyüktür; ondan feryad et. Hz. Ali’ye sorarlar: – Başımıza gelen bu sıkıntılar imtihan mıdır, yoksa ceza mıdır ? Ve ilmin kapısı cevap verir: – Allah’a yaklaştırıyorsa imtihandır, Allah’tan uzaklaştırıyorsa cezadır. – Çok güzel bir kritermiş abi. – Ya degil mi? – Yani gerçekten tam net. – Evet – Başımıza gelen olaylarda, bir zahiri görünen sebep vardır … … bir de hakiki, kader canebinden bir sebep vardır. – Bu musibetin zahiri sebebi , yarasa ve fare. – Peki , hakiki sebebi nedir? – Kader neden bize bu fetvayı vermiştir? – Eski kavimlere baktığında , Firanvun’a bir karınca ile haddi bildirilmiş. – Koskoca Nemrut , bir topal sinek ile deliye dönmüş. – Geçmiş kavimlerde işlenen manevi cinayetlerin tamamı … … şimdi dünyada neredeyse tek bir günde işleniyor. – Neden ? … Neden? … – Çünkü , Firavunluk, Nemrutluk umumileşti.

If someone told us that a virus going to…. destroy the whole planet, we would think its either conspiracy or we’d listen to it like listening a bedtime story There are those that treat the end of the world and the life thereafter like bedtime stories But those are true as well… What we’re experiencing is a crisis never seen in history A virus that can’t be held by the hand, can’t be seen by the naked eye… Was able to bring our lives to a halt Our lives had never slowed down to such a rate Right at this time, we can turn the crisis into an opportunity. If you look at it from the book of the universe… These are crucial for us: Rule Number 1 During this time, air pollution has almost been reduced to non-existence The bottom of the lake in Venice can now be seen clearly, before it was filled with dirt and filth Right when discriminatory politics was on the rise A virus came down and told us: -“Stop these shenanigans before you are also discriminated against” We were in a race for 16 hours of the day without knowing its true purpose but… The virus told us: -“Stop, enough is enough” And made us re-question the true purpose of our creation in this universe Showed us how crucial time was, time that no amount of money could bring back And showed us for what purpose should that limited time be spent in? It reminded us that we have a family and how important it was to spent time with them when financial responsibilities were blinding us My family is you guys of course… wanna hug? It reminded us how important it was to hug your loved ones We can’t even hug anymore, just fist pump, elbow, headbumps, handwaves and do strange things But none of them is the same as a warm hug When everyone was involved in their selfish manners, the virus reminded us the importance of a community… And reminded that our neighbors were as important as ourselves When we were separated from certain pleasures/hobbies even though we could afford them… It made us ask if any of our wealth was gained through haram (sin) ways? One day, a guy notices his car to be shaking so he brings his car to a mechanic The guy tells the mechanic that this car was involved in haram (sin) and that’s why it was broke He says: -“They mixed gasoline with water which is haram, it received something it wasn’t supposed to” Sometimes I wonder if we’re in a similar situation… When we have a prophet who says: – “Plant the tree even if you knew the world was ending that day” We should continue our full efforts of helping others and doing good deeds after we’ve taken the necessary preventative measures to protect us from danger Especially in times like these… This is a wake-up call for those who have major issues We had friends who said: -“I really want to pray salah but I can’t memorize the verses” This is the perfect opportunity for you! We had friends who said: -I can’t find the time to recite the Quran like I used to in my childhood” This is the perfect time for you especially in these holy months! Had friends who said: -“I had some missed prayers that I wanted to make up” Now is the perfect time to do that! Had friends who said: -“Salah is great but I really need to pray the Tahajjud prayer at night in order to become one with Allah Now is the perfect time to wake up for the tahajjud prayers and feel the deep presence of the creator within our souls Of course there are things that makes us sad as well… We were left out of the masjids, mosques, lectures, meetings… The beautiful warm tea that is served after the lecture… Allah has kept us away from these things for now Mosque was a place we visited during tough times Now we’re in tough times not even seen in movies but even the mosques have closed their doors against us Almost as if Allah wasn’t satisfied with us so he did not want to see us for a while… There’s a quote in Risale-i Nur: -“If you’re not thinking of the sins or you don’t know about the afterlife or you don’t recognize Allah…” “You have caught such a bad disease that it’s a million times worse than that small virus infecting you”… One day they asked Ali (R.A): -“All of the bad things that happen to us, are they a test or a punishment? He replies: -“If it brings you away from Allah, it’s a punishment, if it brings you closer to Allah, then it’s a test”… – Such a good standard to have -I agree -It’s crisper clear In most events there is the apparent reason and there is the true, real reason predetermined by fate The apparent reason for the virus are the bats… But what is the true reason? Why did fate provide us with this fatwah? The pharaoh was defeated by a small little ant The “undefeated” Namrud was taken down a small fly All of the crimes and murders of past civilizations are carried out in a single day in modern times Why? Because being the pharaoh or the Namrud has become widespread People revolted and turned into Pharaohs Their egos, their wealth, their powers turned into small little Gods of their own that they worshiped Why did this happen? Because people revolted and they were stubborn in following the wrong path They did everything to turn away from the righteous path Even the religious leader’s lives were identical to the non-believers who were drowning in pleasures… Why do you think these events took place, is there any other reason? Of course we’ll take the physical precautions but the main cause is spiritual so the solution will also be spiritual What if we open up our hands and pray: -“The creator! We broke the promises that we made to you! -“Didn’t educate ourselves like our prophet S.A.V. -“We didn’t reach out to those in need either” -“We wasted time with useless things, worthless issues” -“We never sat down and asked whether these useless things would provide us any benefit in the grave” -“Please forgive us, please forgive us” We’re so cautious about worldly matters, hopefully that’ll be the case for the life hereafter…
