Episode 1: The Great Opportunity

Hadith 1

:عن عائشة أم المؤمنين، قالت
سَأَلْتُ رَسولَ اللَّهِ ﷺ عَنِ الطّاعُونِ، فأخْبَرَنِي أنَّه عَذابٌ يَبْعَثُهُ اللَّهُ على مَن يَشاءُ، وأنَّ اللَّهَ جَعَلَهُ رَحْمَةً لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ، ليسَ مِن أحَدٍ يَقَعُ الطّاعُونُ، فَيَمْكُثُ في بَلَدِهِ صابِرًا مُحْتَسِبًا، يَعْلَمُ أنَّه لا يُصِيبُهُ إلّا ما كَتَبَ اللَّهُ له، إلّا كانَ له مِثْلُ أجْرِ شَهِيدٍ
صحيح البخاري: ٣٤٧٤

‘Ā’isha, Mother of the Believers, said:
I asked the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) about epidemics and he said, “They are a punishment which Allāh sends upon whomsoever He wills, but Allāh has made it a mercy to the believers. Anyone who remains in a town which is plagued with an epidemic, remaining patient and anticipating Allāh’s reward, while firmly believing that nothing will befall him other than what Allāh has preordained for him, then he will receive a reward of a martyr.”
(Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhāri: 3474)
