the inner circle hijiki tabula rasa era Haji Haji Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Shara Omar mo de to her wakulla modesetting VEDA wakulla Vidya Tindall Allah
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
informed us in the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim
about a man
had killed 99
But he wanted to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so he sought
the most knowledgeable person
on the face of this earth.
So he was shown a man, he was brought to a man.
And he asked that man,
he said, I have killed 99 people.
Is there repentance for me? Can I repent?
And so that man said to him 99 people know.
And so he killed him also.
He completed 100. I mean, what's the difference between 99 and 100? It's easy to kill just one more, if you already used to killing 100 I mean, killed 99 already before him. So he killed the muscle.
But you know, he still had a burning desire.
When he resigned, he still had hopes. There must be a way
because there's a burning desire in his heart to return to Allah and to change for the better.
So he continued to ask for the most knowledgeable person until he was shown a scholar.
The scholars have said the first guy was a worshipper but not a scholar.
And so they mentioned this as an example of the dangers of ignorance. Nid cost him his life, because of his ignorance.
And so he came to this man who was a scholar, and he said,
I killed 99 people already.
And then I went to the other man, they killed him also. And he completed 100.
He told them the story.
And he said, Is there hope for is there repentance for me? So that scholar man said to him, what can come between you and repentance? meaning there's always the door of repentance is always open for you, but you have to
you have to move
from the land of the good the bad people into the land of the good people.
So he's showing him how to repent. Remember, one of the conditions of repentance is that you have to make a conviction not to return to that sin. In Islam we have is still far. And we have a Toba
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said we're living in fcbd but he in whose hand is my soul.
In the law as stung funeral law was to boo la philleo. Mira Tamara,
I buy he knows and is my soul I make is still far. And I make Toba in a day 100 times in another narration over 70 times. Now the words 70 and 100 means it's a lot. Not necessarily the the specific numbers, but you make it a lot.
Always be in a state of asking the law for forgiveness. But what is this the foreign Toba is still far is asking Allah to forgive your sins verbally at Toba is putting into action, showing that you're sincere having that conviction to not return to that sin. And putting that is still far that you ask a lot for into action. And so he is telling him You have to make Toba in order for your Toba to be correct. And to be proper, you have to move from the land of the bad people to the land of the good people.
You know, this is not something that's easy. If you're used to being in an area, or if you grew up in a town or a city, it could be your hometown. If you have to pick up and move it's not something that's easy. But because he wanted to change, he was willing to sacrifice all his friends moving away from them, moving away from the place that he's used to.
He was, this is what you call repentance. And Allah subhanho wa Taala loves it.
He loved it so much.
That this person that similar happened that listen to what happened to this person,
this person, he made that conviction to move so but he went he went halfway. When he reached halfway,
Allah subhanho wa Taala
sent the angel or the bot both angels the angel of mercy and the angel of punishment, they both came to take his soul. The angel of mercy said he was already on his way towards repentance. He was on his way to the land of the good people. Already he had started his repentance.
And the angel of punishment said this man has not done any good whatsoever. I should take him. And so there was a dispute between these two angels. Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a third angel who came in the form of a man to settle the dispute.
And so he said to them, why don't you measure the measure the distance between this person and the land of the bad people and this person and then the good people, whichever of the two he's closest to then you take them accordingly. So they measured And it so happens
that a loss of a handle at Allah because he loves those who repent. Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered the earth to shrink the distance between that person in the land of the good people, so that they when they measure the distance between him and the land of the good people will shoulder and the angel of mercy took his
money Allah subhanho wa Taala forgave him
because he repented and he was sincere, and he put it to action. So don't ever lose hope.
If a person who has killed who had killed 99 people could be forgiven if they make the conviction and repent to Allah sincerely, then also, we should never lose hope. In fact, anyone who loses hope
in Allah subhanho wa Taala Islam is actually believe it or not, anyone who loses hope is a caffeine.
Why is a person who loses hope? Why is he a caffeine?
Because a person who loses hope
and he doesn't repent because he thinks that his sins are so great. It's as if he's saying Yeah, Allah, my sins are so great. Your mercy can even encompass it always will be loved. How could you say such a thing?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I assume a rahila do not lose hope in the comforting mercy
Have a long and know who lie is a lie. lol Coleman Catherine, nobody loses hope in the comforting Mercy of Allah, except disbelievers.
So no matter what state you're in,
no matter what is happening to you in your life, do not lose hope in the comforting Mercy of Allah. Do not lose hope. Some people, they lose hope.
And they kill themselves.
And they commit suicide. Don't lose hope. Because Allah knows what you're going through.
And he knows that you can handle it.
Because he knows us better than we know ourselves. And he is more merciful towards us than we are merciful towards our own selves.
Allah knows what we're going through.
And if you lose hope,
when you lose hope in the situation that you're in, it says if you're saying yo la, you don't know what I'm going through.
How could you say such a thing, Allah knows what you're going through. And Allah knows that you can handle it. Because Allah will never burden a soul above his capacity.
So never lose hope, in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to repent and return to Him and not lose hope. And he's so happy when we make that conviction to change. When we still have hopes in him, there are lots of handla Thailand
is more happy, as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, then a person who has
lost his camel
and he is in the desert. And on his camel is all the livelihood that he has.
And he has totally
he has lost his hope in the sense that he does not feel he does not think that he will ever find this camel. And so he goes to sleep.
So he goes to sleep, waiting for death to come.
waiting for death to come.
And then when he wakes up,
he sees the camel with all the livelihood upon it in front of his face. And he is so happy that he says yo Allah.
I am your Lord, and you are my servant.
He's so happy that his tongue is a slip of the tongue.
He says you're alone.
You're my I am your Lord and you are my servant. He meant he meant to say the other way, but he was so happy.
And so Allah is more happy when we repent to him, than that person.
So when we love somebody, we all say we love Allah. When we love someone, don't we want to make that person happy?
Of course we do. So for us if we want to make if we want Allah subhanho wa Taala to be happy and pleased with us.
Then we should repent to him.
And we have to show not just say it's the fault of the law. Don't just verbally, then make Toba put it into action.
hoping in Allah when a person hopes in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala
you don't just
you don't just
sit down and you hope that Allah subhanho wa Taala into you paradise. But when you truly hope, put your hopes in Allah, you do all that you can
you do all that that's a part of hoping and being hopeful. That's why Allah Subhana Allah says
in Surah Al Baqarah
Medina, Hi Joe.
Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, he's describing what it means to have hope.
He says in the livina man who, surely those who have faith, those who believe what levena has jeru
will do fees vilella then they, they migrate, they make Hendra and they strive and fight in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala hula era Juna Ramadan la those are the people who hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala
that's what it means to have hope.
That sweat that's what it means to put your hopes in Allah. You do all that you humanly Can
you do all that you humanly can, then you hope for the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he didn't say those are the people or those who opened the law are the ones who sit in the massages. And just supplicate only Look, he says those who have faith and they make hedger
and they make Jihad those are the people who we call those who are hopeful of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so if you want gender, you want paradise.
You do all that you can, and you put your hopes in a lawsuit. bannerghatta Allah, there are some people who say, you know, I put my trust and I'm hoping that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give me inshallah a righteous or a pious son or a pious child. And so if someone were to say, you know, I want a child, so I'm going to what I'm going to do is I'm just gonna go to the masjid every single day, and supplicate to Allah subhana wa Tada.
And inshallah Allah will give me a pious child.
Can Allah subhanho wa Taala do that?
He can. But you would consider that person not being hopeful? No, he's foolish. Because he thinks that by supplicating, to a line just making the only and not taking the proper means that Allah will send a stork to you and drop a child in the masjid. Then you're living in fairytale land.
There's no stork that's gonna come and drop a child for you. If you want the child, you get married. And if you want a pious child, the first thing you do is look for a pious wife, so that she will be a pious mother, that she will properly take care of the child and teach the child properly. So you take all the proper means. And even if you did all of that, and you got married, or you promised to have a child,
you might not even get a child. You might be you will have married somebody who was barren or you yourself cannot have have a child.
But you have to do all of that first, and supplicate to a law and that's what we call putting your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And having hopes and putting your hopes in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so when you put your hopes in Allah,
no matter as I mentioned, no matter what your situation is,
you have to have hope. You never lose hope.
There are some people who lose hope. And they say that, you know, I've been so bad. But as long as you're remorseful, as long as you make the conviction to be the best that you can be, a law has there to help you along once you to repent, in the loss of a handle that Allah has helped will help you in your path towards repentance. But you have to make that first step. You have to make that change. During the time of
Prophet Musa alayhis salam.
There was a man
now this man,
he had been disobedient to Allah for many years.
And so there was a drought that occurred
in Bani Israel with complaining to the prophet to Prophet Musa alayhis salaam. And they said to him,
they said the elderly are suffering. The children are starving.
The plants and vegetables, the vegetation is shriveled up. The animals are dying
supplicate to Allah
He will send rain down upon us.
And so the Prophet Musa alayhis salam gathered Bani Israel,
he gathered them
in a, an open plane
and he supplicated to Allah. He said, Yala,
the elderly are suffering and the children are starving and the animals are dying and the vegetation is drying up.
Send rain down upon us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to Prophet Musa, Allah told Prophet Musa there is a man amongst you.
He has this obeyed me for 40 years.
Tell him to leave the congregation then I will send down rain upon you.
And so Prophet Musa Allah, he said, I made an announcement to the people in the gathering. And he said, Whoever this person is,
please leave the congregation
for indeed, alone will not send down rain upon us until you leave the congregation.
The children are starving.
The elderly are suffering, the animals are dying, vegetation is all shriveled up, drying up.
Leave the congregation so that alone was sent down rain upon us. So that person looked left. And he looked right.
He looked left and he looked towards the right. And he knew he was no one else except for him. He was the one that was supposed to leave the congregation. So he covered his head up.
And he started to cry.
He couldn't leave otherwise everyone would know who he was.
So he was remorseful and he repented to Allah sincerely, to the point where tears were coming down his eyes. And when the tears dropped down from his eyes, Allah said the rain down at that time.
talisa London said Yala, nobody left the congregation Why did you send the rain down?
Allah subhanho wa Taala said, I sent the rain down because of the same person because of a sincere repentance.
I sent the rain down because of that person. So Prophet Musa alayhis salam said, Yeah, Allah, show us who this repenting servant of yours is so that we may be thankful to him.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala responded.
And he said,
he disobeyed me for 40 years, and I covered up his sins.
Now that he has repented, do you think I'm going to show you who he is?
for the years I covered up his sins, now that he's repented, do you think I'm going to show you who he is?
Allah is waiting for us Don't lose hope.
It doesn't matter if you're 4050 6070 years old, returned to Allah and repent to Allah.
And make the conviction to be the best person that you can be.
Put it into action. Allah is there to accept our repentance.
Allah is there. And he's happy. He's so happy that he's more happy than a person who has given given another chance at life.
I want you to imagine, imagine ourselves where any one of us now, if the die imagine that a doc The doctor came and told us that we have cancer and we have two weeks to live.
How would you feel?
What would you do? You have two weeks to live.
And he said, you can just go home and wait for death to come. You have two weeks.
If you like fish and chips, eat all the fish and chips you want.
Right? But you got two weeks to live. You would be very sad right?
Now imagine one week later, the doctor calls and says that was actually a misdiagnosis. You don't have cancer. You don't have how happy would you be?
In America, you went to the doctor but that's a different matter.
But you would be so happy because you will have been given a second chance at life.
alone is more happy when we repent to him. So don't think that your sins are so great that you can't return to Allah, but you have to put it into action.
You have to put it into action. And the law is there for us every single day, every single night, Allah subhanho wa Taala descends down to the lower heavens.
And he asks, Is there any one who
is asking for forgiveness so that they may forgive him?
if we were to go to a house
that we know is in need,
maybe they're poor. And we want to help them
when we go to them, and we bring money to them, and food to them. And then when they see us, when they see us coming, they turn off the lights, and they go to sleep.
Right? When they see us coming, everyone turns off the lights.
Okay, you go back home, right? When you see them turning off their lights, and everyone's going to sleep. The next day, you come to them again.
Next day, you come to them again,
bringing the money, food, just helping them out, because you know, they're in need.
And then when they start seeing they, when they somebody looks outside, and they see you coming. And so everyone, they start turning off the lights, and they go to sleep, and they close their doors.
And so you turn back, say maybe tomorrow, they'll open the door, maybe I can give them I can help them. You go to them again. And they do the exact same thing. After four times, what would you do?
What would you do after three, four times you want to help this family? But every time you go to them, they're always closing the door and they want you out? They want you to they don't want you
What would you do? And you know they need Whoa.
What would you do?
Let me go find somebody else, right?
Let me you would stop going to them. And two or three times me first second time, maybe you'd find the excuse but then you start to realize, you know, they realize they're purposely turning off the lights. When they see me. It's not like coincidence here anymore. They know I'm coming and they're turning off the lights.
You know we are in need.
Allah subhanho wa Taala descends down to the lower heavens every single night.
And he's asking us he's ready to give us what we need. But we turn off the lights and we go to sleep.
And we continue to do that every single night but a lot still comes down every night. Maybe one of these nights we will stand up in prayer and supplicate to him.
Maybe one of these nights. A lot doesn't stop
every single night
and we just sleep.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is so merciful.
He wants us to repent.
He wants to give us what we need.
He wants us to have done.
He wants to give it to us.
That's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Gulu omitted hallucinogen,
elimine Abba, my home into paradise, except for those who refuse below Amelia sullo law
who would refuse our messenger of Allah
Mantovani, the halogen, he said, whoever obeys me, he will have paradise will Manasa Abba and whoever disobeys me then he has refused. Well, wha hoo. Yeah, Nero Illa Daraa Salaam. Allah invites us to enter Paradise. Allah wants us to enter Paradise. He invites us to enter Paradise, but we refuse.
We're the ones who refuse.
Allah is merciful.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
in a hadith makutsi Allah.
You have no Adam, or son of Adam. In nicoma doubt anyone Oh Joe, Tony. You are son of Adam. You do not supplicate to me and you are not hopeful of me and you know hope from me

Yep, no Adam. Oh, children of Adam. Oh son of Adam. Noah data Nibiru Pura bill are the Hata viewer to come to me with an Earth a

with sins that would cover the whole earth. Somalia, PETA Nila Toshi cabify, la two kB kurabe among Pharaoh, then if you come to me without associating with me at all whatsoever, I would give you

Do not lose hope. At the same time. Do not Do not overestimate your piety and righteousness.
Only Allah can help us.
Only Allah can guide us. Only Allah can show us the straight path. Only unlock and keep us on the straight path don't overestimate your piety and righteousness and think I can do it No you supplicate to Allah. You
stand in humbleness and humility in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Allah subhanho wa Taala is there to accept our repentance but will repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala
make the intention and the conviction to be the best person that you can be
you know, there's a great scholar
his nickname was on be dual how romaine?
Do you know an IB domain means worshipper of Mecca and Medina.
He was known for his piety and righteousness. So much so that he got the nickname I be doing domain, the worshiper of Mecca and Medina, the worshipper of the most the two holiest sites on the face of this earth.
But you know what? He wasn't like that before.
He informed one of his students, or some of his students about how he was before, and some of them knew who he was before. Before he was very ruthless. He was very, very ruthless. He was a highway robber.
Not any highway robber, a highway robber between Mecca and Medina.
How worse How bad can you be to rob people going to Mecca to make over on Hajj.
But that's who he was in his young days.
he was on top of a roof.
And he looked down he was about to jump into the house. He was looking down and he saw a man standing up in prayer.
And he was crying.
he said, Let me listen to what this man Why is he crying?
So the old man was crying.
And he was reciting the Quran in prayer. And he came across a verse in which a lot of behind what Allah says
Allah Mia Nila la Vina, Amma know, Boo.
Isn't it time for the believers to have their hearts soften and tremble in the worse in, in the remembrance of Allah. Isn't it time? In other words, isn't it time for them to change?
And so when he heard this verse
IBL haramain, his name is alpha limonaia
as filleted. He said, yes, it is time. Yes, it is time. That verse stretched his heart. And so he jumped from the house. And he was walking away from the house thinking about his life.
And then he came, and he saw a fire in the distance, and there's a tent there. And he went to that tents. And so he laid down next to the 10th and he heard the two people inside the tent, discussing and talking to each other. One of
themselves. Let's go. We're already late. We should continue our journey. The other person said, Do you know where we are? We are in the place where alpha male alpha lane sells This is his area. Do you know who knows? You know who they are in those days?
Food I mean, he was so ruthless that mothers used to scare their children by using his name. Do you know like an hour time like sometimes and you know kids don't go that sometimes for some some, some parents, okay, you don't do this, but some parents will do this, right? You don't go to sleep. I'm gonna get the boogeyman over
where he was that Boogeyman?
The kids used to hear his name like, Oh, yeah, we don't want to mess with him. And so these guy and he was ruthless. He was so well known for his treachery. And so
when he heard them discussing this, he said, y'all you brought me here for a reason. These people's hearts would be trembling in the fear of Allah, not me. Now.
So he goes, he goes home and he takes a shower. He goes to the masjid.
And he cries until, and to repent to Allah. This is the true repentance, you know what he does? he repents to Allah and he studies with the scholars.
he changes his whole life. To the point where he became so pious, he was the Imam of Mecca and Medina.
All of us here
you can change we can change and don't just change to be better. Change to be the best.
Change to be the best.
To the point where
if you're sitting at home and there's a football game going on,
and it's Mother of time you ask yourself where would the best person in
Birmingham in England where would he be at this moment? Where would the best Muslim be he would be in the master you know i inshallah you say to the Chawla, I want to be that best person.
And then you go to the masjid. Don't just change to be better. Change to be the best. And that's what
he did. He said, you know what I'm gonna change from the worst to the best. To be the best that I can be.
And you can do it.
Put your hopes in Allah and Allah subhana wa tada can help you.
Put your trust in Allah. But remember what trust means. Putting your trust in Allah and putting your hopes in Allah you do all that you can
to be the best that you can be.
as anybody does anyone here No. Alma, howdy. Have you heard of that person before? Who is that Maddie?
Who is Maddie?
Do you know who he is?
Who He is okay, right now, you have all of this. This oppression that's going on in the world, right?
All the oppression that's going on in the world right now. There will come a halifa
who will be a pious hanifa who will bring justice to the world.
He will unite the Muslims.
The black and the whites and the Arabs and non Arabs on the Muslims will come together
and he will be the leader of the Muslims.
And it will be so just that the wealth that the Muslims have will be spread and divided. So just with thought with such justice, that
there will be so much extra wealth that when you ask for wealth when it's given you give it without even counting take as much as you want.
Without anyone county should take only this much. No there's so much that you will not be able to find a poor person to give money to yours the cat you will not find anyone because there will be so much justice.
Do you know that's Alma de
you know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described him.
His name is Mohammed
Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah, the same name as the name of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu describes one of his characteristics. He said your slave roofie Yeoman, well Allah, Allah will rectify his condition in one day in one night. No, there was one day
Love will make him maybe Willow Island. Maybe he's a normal Mohammed Abdullah. He's just Mohammed Abdullah. But one day Allah subhanho wa Taala. He will be Mohammed Abdullah Al Mahdi.
Just maybe a regular Mohammed Abdullah, but he will be Mohammed Abdullah Al Mahdi leader of the Muslims, alpha leaf with a Russian
that will unite the Muslims.
You know what I'm telling you this not so that you hope inshallah, I'll be in Medina.
That's not to say, okay, you're gonna be them. No, but you can make a change. And you can be the best person that you can be
that one day and one night, let that be today.
Put your hopes in a law and you can do it. We all can do it with the help of a loss of Hannah Montana.
But we have to make that conviction. And we have to make that change a law every single night descends to the lower heavens.
And he wants us to stand up and just ask and you'll get every night but we just turn off the lights every night. But then we just go to sleep.
Let's start. When Allah descends, we stand up and we ask
instead of repeating that again. But Allah is so merciful, even though for 40 years we've been sleeping.
If we did it tonight, Allah is there and waiting for us.
alone will descend down even tonight. Even after 60 years. No matter what you did before I'm pretty sure none of us killed 999 or 100 year
old Hopefully not.
And nobody was ruthless, like alpha lane. But he became fully loved now y'all the highway robber to fully live now y'all
be doing romaine
so why why can we make that change? start studying the dean started applying
and when it's time to put to practice
you say to yourself where would the best Muslim be? What would the best Muslim in England be doing right now inshallah Yala I want to be that person.
I want to be that person. And I'm going to make the effort to be that person. Why change for the better when you can change for the best.
And that's what we say hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala. You do all that you can. And Allah, when you walk towards Allah, Allah runs to
you just have to make that change.
And don't lose hope. Don't ever lose hope. Don't think I can't do it. And I'm like this and I'm like that all before I was this and that was that No.
No matter what you did before, you can still be the best.
You can still be the best. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah
to guide us and keep us firm. on the straight path, we ask Allah Subhan to gather as also in the highest level and paradise with the prophets and messengers and the martyrs and the solid hain pious people who has a curfew, but does not come along hiren wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa salam
