Vaccines and Vaccinations, Healthy Efforts for Muslims

First Friday Sermon Text

إِنّ الْحَمْدَ لِلَّهِ نَحْمَدُهُ وَنَسْتَعِيْنُهُ وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ وَنَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ مِنْ شُرُوْرِ أَنْفُسِنَا وَسَيّئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنَا مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللهُ فَلاَ مُضِلّ لَهُ وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلاَ هَادِيَ لَهُ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلهَ إِلاّ اللهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنّ مُحَمّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُه

اَللهُمّ صَلّ وَسَلّمْ عَلى مُحَمّدٍ وَعَلى آلِهِ وِأَصْحَابِهِ وَمَنْ تَبِعَهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ إِلَى يَوْمِ الدّيْن.

يَاأَيّهَا الّذَيْنَ آمَنُوْا اتّقُوا اللهَ حَقّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلاَ تَمُوْتُنّ إِلاّ وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُوْنَ

يَاأَيّهَا الّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا اتّقُوا اللهَ وَقُوْلُوْا قَوْلاً سَدِيْدًا يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْلَكُمْ ذُنُوْبَكُمْ وَمَنْ يُطِعِ اللهَ وَرَسُوْلَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيْمًا

The Muslims are mercy of Allah.

On the occasion of this Friday sermon, let us offer thanks to Allah SWT for all the blessings of good health and enjoyment. For those who still don’t have the opportunity to perform Friday prayers due to the Islamic udzur, may Allah make all their affairs easier.

As a form of gratitude, let us increase the quality of our faith and devotion to Allah SWT, with true devotion, so that we are able to realize ourselves as servants chosen by Allah as noble servants in His Side.

Happy Muslims.

Treatment efforts as a form of effort must be carried out. Therefore, experts, including in this case, the government, are obliged to carry out these efforts and provide all related needs.

This order for treatment is in accordance with the hadith of the Prophet SAW which reads:

إِنَّ اللهَ خَلَقَ الدَّاءَ وَالدَّوَاءَ فَتَدَاوَوْا وَلاَ تَتَدَاوَوْا بِحَرَامٍ [رواه الطبرني]

Indeed, Allah created both the disease and the cure. Therefore, seek treatment, but do not seek treatment with the harama [HR al-Thabrani].

The obligation of experts and the government to provide treatment needs is in line with QS. Al-Nahl: 43, Allah says:

.فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ…

ask someone who has knowledge if you don’t know.

Also in line with the rules of fiqh,

.تَصَرُّفُ اْلاِمَامِ عَلَى الرَّاعِيَّةِ مَنُوْطٌ بِالْمَصْلَحَةِ

The leader’s policy towards his people must be in accordance with the benefit.

Jum’ah congregation attendees, Rahimakumullah.

What the khatib explained earlier shows that every element of society must try to protect the soul from all diseases. For health experts, it is mandatory to make a set of medical devices that bring benefit. The government is obliged to provide all the necessities needed by medical experts. And for the community in general it is obligatory to make efforts to protect lives so that they do not perish.

As stated in QS. Al Baqarah verse 195 and al-Maidah verse 32, Muslims are ordered to survive as much as possible. In the hadith narrated by al-Darimi it is also stated that health is a pleasure bestowed by Allah. In fact, this was reinforced by the statement of the Prophet so that a Muslim does not plunge himself into harm and even bring harm to other people.

On the other hand, currently our society and the entire world community are facing the condition of the Covid-19 outbreak which is increasingly widespread and even out of control. Facing the Covid-19 emergency that is still ongoing and has not yet shown a sloping graph, there needs to be immediate action to deal with this emergency.

In QS. Al-Rad verse 11, Allah SWT says:

… اِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوۡمٍ حَتّٰى يُغَيِّرُوۡا مَا بِاَنۡفُسِهِمۡ‌ؕ وَاِذَاۤ اَرَادَ اللّٰهُ بِقَوۡمٍ سُوۡۤءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهٗ‌ۚ وَمَا لَهُمۡ مِّنۡ دُوۡنِهٖ مِنۡ وَّالٍ…

Surely Allah will not change the condition of a people before they change their own condition.

Vaccination is one of the efforts to change the current pandemic situation towards a better normal state. Because the maximum effort to end the pandemic for the sake of protecting souls is part of religious teachings. Not only that, vaccination also plays an important role in maintaining the continuity of a strong and healthy generation.

In accordance with a fragment of the hadith of the Prophet which reads,

اَلْـمُؤْمِنُ الْقَـوِيُّ خَـيْرٌ وَأَحَبُّ إِلَـى اللهِ مِنَ الْـمُؤْمِنِ الضَّعِيْفِ، وَفِـيْ كُـلٍّ خَـيْـرٌ ، اِحْـرِصْ عَـلَـى مَا يَـنْـفَـعُـكَ وَاسْتَعِنْ بِاللهِ وَلَا تَـعْجَـزْ

Indeed, strong believers are better and more loved by Allah than weak believers. In everything there is goodness, so you should always try everything that is beneficial to you, and ask Allah for help, and don’t be weak, (HR Muslim).

أَقُولُ قَوْ لِي هَذَا وَأَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ لِيْ وَلَكُمْ فَاسْتَغْفِرُوْهُ اِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيْمُ

Text of the Second Friday Khutbah

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ سَيِّدَنَا مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولُهُ، اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ الطَّيِّبِينَ الطَّاهِرِينَ وَعَلَى أَصْحَابِهِ أَجْمَعِينَ، وَعَلَى التَّابِعِينَ لَهُمْ بِإِحْسَانٍ إِلَى يَوْمِ الدِّينِ.

 إِنَّ اللهَ وَمَلاَئِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّوْنَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ، يَاأَيُّهاَ الَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا صَلُّوْا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوْا تَسْلِيْمًا. اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ وَقَرَابَتِهِ وَأَزْوَاجِهِ وَذُرِّيَّاتِهِ أَجْمَعِيْنَ. اَللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِلْمُسْلِمِيْنَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ اْلأَحْيَاءِ مِنْهُمْ وَاْلأَمْوَاتِ، إِنَّكَ قَرِيْبٌ مُجِيْبُ الدَّعَوَاتِ وَيَا قَاضِيَ الْحَاجَاتِ.

 عِبَادَ اللهِ، إِنَّ اللهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ بِالْعَدْلِ وَاْلإِحْسَانِ وَإِيتَآئِ ذِي الْقُرْبَى وَيَنْهَى عَنِ الْفَحْشَآءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ وَالْبَغْيِ يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُوْنَ. فَاذْكُرُوا اللهَ الْعَظِيْمَ يَذْكُرْكُمْ وَادْعُوْهُ يَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ وَلَذِكْرُ اللهِ أَكْبَرُ
