ANTIDOTE FOR ALL DANGERS AND CALAMITIES THAT NOW HAVE BEFALLEN THE HUMAN RACE ESPECIALLY COVID19 PANDEMIC Today the entire world is stunned by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID 19). The large outbreak has gone beyond control and worsen day by day. Medical experts and researchers are still unable to find any vaccine to control, cure and contain the virus spread. Know that this world belongs to Allah The Almighty, He is the Creator. Thus to prevent the spread of this pandemic, we must all return to Allah’s Religion and abide by all His Laws and Regulations. In this book the answer for the antidote is explained. Do read and comprehend the contents and we will all get the required answer. “ALLAH’s RELIGION A BLESSING AND A SAVIOUR FOR THE ENTIRE WORLDS” InsyaALLAH, whosoever owns this book will be safe from all dangers and calamities, especially the current COVID19 pandemic. For any queries, please contact: 1. Dr. Dalhadi Hasan @ 6013-855 1521 2. Mdm Nooraini Abu Samah @ 6012-317 5493 3. Mdm Nor Rasyidah Mustafa @ 6019-240 1425 4. Hajjah Noor Sham Abdullah @ 6019-288 1466 5. Mdm Junaidah Boss @ 6019-536 3752 Allah SWT have said in the Holy Quran Chapter Az-Zumar Verse 54: وَأَنِيبُوا إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ وَأَسْلِمُوا لَهُ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ الْعَذَابُ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ “And turn in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him before the torment comes upon you then you will not be helped” Glad Tidings for The Whole Universe video by Syeikh Tuan Haji Abdul Rahim Al-Hassaniyyah Part 1: https://youtu.be/ZfwOpbHmxUU Part 2 : https://youtu.be/TM99YN5fEfE
REMINDER TO LEADERS AND SCHOLARS ON THE ANTIDOTE AND CURE FOR COVID-19 ADVERSITY Indeed, we have previously warned all Leaders and Scholars both Muslims and non-Muslims alike on the antidote and cure for Covid19. We assert that COVID-19 is not a disease nor a test for mankind but in reality is torment from Allah SWT. Thus the only cure is to return to Allah SWT in repentance and set our face to Allah SWT again by obeying Him as well as His Messenger (peace be upon him) as Allah Himself have said in the Holy Quran Chapter Az-Zumar Verse 54: وَأَنِيبُوا إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ وَأَسْلِمُوا لَهُ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ الْعَذَابُ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ “And turn in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him before the torment comes upon you then you will not be helped” This is the path that Allah SWT has guided us as stated in the above verse on how to escape His torment before it comes or presently upon us. Allah SWT said in Chapter Al-Araf verses 134-135: وَلَمَّا وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِمُ الرِّجْزُ قَالُوا يَا مُوسَى ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِندَكَ ۖ لَئِن كَشَفْتَ عَنَّا الرِّجْزَ لَنُؤْمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرْسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ “And when the punishment fell on them they said: "O Musa (Moses)! Invoke your Lord for us because of His Promise to you. If you will remove the punishment from us, we indeed shall believe in you, and we shall let the Children of Israel go with you." فَلَمَّا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُمُ الرِّجْزَ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ هُم بَالِغُوهُ إِذَا هُمْ يَنكُثُونَ “But when We removed the punishment from them to a fixed term, which they had to reach, behold! They broke their word!” The above verses mentioned torment had befallen Pharaoh and his people. Once they pledged to believe in Prophet Moses AS and promised to release the Children of Israel, the torment was lifted by Allah SWT. Fast forward to today, our situation is similar to the days of Prophet Moses AS, in which the torment of Allah SWT has befallen us mankind. Clearly, if we wish for Allah SWT to lift the torment that is upon us, there is no other way but for Muslims to repent and return to Allah the Almighty in obedience and in full submission to Him alone and obeying His Laws and Regulations. For non-Muslims, he or she must believe in the last and final Prophet, our Leader Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) by saying the testimony of faith or Shahadah. This is indeed the antidote and cure for COVID-19 that has befallen us mankind, be them Muslims or non-Muslims. Again, we advise the Leaders and Scholars of Islam whom we have previously advised to take the path shown by Allah SWT as mentioned in the above verses so that He will lift His torment that is upon us now, hence all mankind will recover and live peacefully. After this reminder, if the Leaders and Scholars ignore, refuse or fail to do as what Allah SWT has stated in the above two verses, then all of you will be responsible in this world and in the hereafter for this frightful and horrifying perpetual event. In our previous reminder, we also stated whosoever owns our book entitled " ALLAH’s RELIGION A BLESSING AND A SAVIOUR FOR THE ENTIRE WORLDS " will also be safe from all dangers and calamities, especially the current COVID19 pandemic that has befallen mankind. Reason being the book contains and explains the essence of the Holy Quran which touches five subjects: 1) Al-Basa-ir that is all the evidence and explanations that will open the human’s heart; 2) Al-Huda that is guidance on how mankind as the Caliph on the earth can establish relationship with Allah SWT the Creator of the Universe, relationship with humans, relationship between humans and other creatures such as jinns, animals, plants and inanimate things; 3) Al-Furqan that is the differentiator between right and wrong; 4) As-Syifa which is the cure for our physical body and our soul; and 5) Ar-Rahmah that is the blessing for the entire worlds because the laws and regulations contained in the Holy Quran are based on love and mercy. O Muslims, do not doubt the truth about Allah’s Words as mentioned in Chapters Az-Zumar and Al-Araf. Do not let our Iman or Faith waver! May Allah SWT forgive all our sins and may He show us the straight and bright path, left by our Prophet (PBUH). For those who have queries on how to do the above, please contact one of the followings: 1. Dr. Dalhadi Hasan @ +6013-855 1521 2. Puan Nooraini Abu Samah @ +6012-317 5493, 3. Puan Nor Rasyidah Mustafa @ +6019-240 1425 4. Hjh Puan Noor Sham Abdullah @ +6019-288 1466 5. Puan Junaidah Boss @ +6019-536 3752
The Cook County Assessor is failing to take measures that would give Cook County property owners some relief in filing their appeals. This is a big story no one is covering. Check this out:
This is only for the opportunists who came forth with their encouraging words, false hopes, etc., after my 19-year-old unarmed son ( Darrius Stewart ) was snatched out of the backseat of a car, taken to a church on Winchester Rd., shot twice in the chest & once in the back by Memphis officer #Coward ( Connor Schilling ) on July 17, 2015! None have delivered that in which they promised. God is holding each & every one of you accountable for your actions in trying to sabotage #DarriusStewart 's #Justice & #Truth for your own selfish reasons & greed. Every year since I've been fighting for my son's #Justice his trial has been postponed until the next year without my knowledge! Why? This year they came with a bunch of BS from last year postponing! I even asked/requested for Darrius Stewart's Civil Lawsuit which was refiled in February 2020 to be amended ASAP with the city of Memphis, TN & Connor Schilling both as defendants! Since the original agreement from last year isn't being honored. No, respond. #DarriusStewart 's #Justice is already won! #DarriusStewartsTruth
