The following is a translation of a lecture delivered to Muwahhideen Publications by the Noble Shaykh Dr. ʿAbdullah ibn Ṣulfīq aẓ-Ẓafīrī(حفظه الله) on Friday 24th Rajab 1441
A Beneficial Excerpt:
The point is, the Muslim is to have more hope in the Mercy of Allāh, and not despair at the same time from the plotting of Allāh. And likewise, in these days and times, that are times of affliction, the believer is not to take the current situation as a big joke. Joking about matters like this, about the present situation in the world, is a sign of having a dead heart. It is a sign of being negligent.
When a solar eclipse happened in the time of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), he did not make a joke out of it, he was afraid. He went and told the people, “Go and get the women out. Tell them to come and pray. There might just be that there is a woman who is clothed in this life but will be naked on the Day of Resurrection.” He feared for the Punishment of Allāh.
