alameen wa salli wa sallim ala
Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa was such a big marine.
Today's lecture as the brother mentioned in shallow to Allah is Ramadan, the month of repentance. And we mentioned after slaughter Juma this was something I requested that today's lecture
be about Toba and tomorrow's lecture and shall we all pick up slot when on advertisement obviously, today's fickle slot and tomorrow is about tober but I requested that tonight be about toboe
so in tonight's lecture, inshallah we're going to talk about Toba and everything that has something to do with tober. A lot of things have to do with Tobin Jelani, and this is because Ramadan is a golden opportunity for a Muslim, to move to make Toba and to have his Toba accepted.
There are three opportunities for a Muslim to have his sins entirely forgiven in Ramadan. It came in the sin of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there are three chances three opportunities for a Muslim to have his sins forgiven during Ramadan.
Who can tell me one of these three opportunities?
Look at the headers from HUD even.
the question I'll repeat it again. I asked.
I said that there's three opportunities three chances for the Muslim to have all of his sins forgiven during the month of Ramadan.
All of his sins forgiven during the month of Ramadan. Okay.
Repentance, were there certain actions we want any it came into handy.
Later per month, Montez man calm a little further. A man with a seven woofer Allahumma condimentum Bay that whoever stands in prayer tonight other laser cutter that all of his sins inshallah his person will be forgiven. Another opportunity.
Montez passing the entire month of Ramadan, mon sama Ramadan, Emmanuel 37. Wolfie Allahumma Takata Mendham Bay whoever fast the entire month of Ramadan that all of his sins inshallah is pesant a minority seven which means three men and it said that you want the edge of the reward from Allah subhana wa tada that his sins will be forgiven.
Standing in a prayer in the total Wait a moment in their favor later during Ramadan. As it is the first time he was one month sama who fasted the other Hadith is mana karma. Man karma from avant Eman was the seven who fail Allahumma Zakat them and then be that who ever stands in prayer during Ramadan, that the voluntary prayer meaning that all of his impasse inshallah will be forgiven.
When we talk about towboat, we have in front of us a rather lengthy lecture.
The notes are a lot, there's a lot to talk about, and it's actually more needs more than an hour and a half to finish everything. However, it is possible, inshallah, that we'll finish it in this time that we have. So we'll start quickly, without any further ado, inshallah, on the first topic regarding Toba, which is the virtues of Toba the virtues of repentance, and we have with us,
I believe, about nine or somewhere on our 11 virtues.
Regarding Toba, we mentioned before when we started the Dow methodology course, about why we mentioned the virtues at the beginning.
What are the what is the hikma the wisdom behind mentioning the virtues at the beginning?
virtues of anything, we're talking about tobei. Now, I'm saying anything. We talked about it, we're discussing it, we're studying it and we mentioned the virtues first.
You mean, he said encourages us makes it our objective? All good answers. And we mentioned before like the coach when he coaches his team in sports, what does he do at the beginning?
gets them pumped up and excited about the game so they can win. Also, you'll see for example, if you go back to the tablet to heat at the beginning, the chef Rahim only talks about the virtues of to heat you
talks about what you get if you implement so heat in your life what happens to engender if you have good to heat. So this in the first few chapters, when the person reads this, he gets excited about the subject matter at hand which is the to heat. So when he goes on to other chapters, he'll go in strong inshallah. inshallah wattana. The first virtue is that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the terroir been
in the law, to wellbeing. Allah loves those who are constantly repenting. And the word to worship and Arabic language. It's not like tab, somebody repeats the word means that he is constantly repenting. That means he's constantly what
is but from what if somebody is constantly repenting, that mean he has to be constantly What? Sending as well. Lots of Allah loves this person, even though he's sending constantly he's always repenting. So Allah subhanaw taala loves him. And that's enough as a virtue.
And he for all the virtues that are lost, Matata loves you, if we repent that in itself is enough, and if we don't mention any other virtues, and him there that is sufficient, another virtue. The second one is
that Toba repentance is one of the means or one of the reasons for us to be successful. And fella and sorta nor were the brothers with her father in law.
They didn't come to this lecture machine. Let us be ourselves. I'm Dylan and sort of the note and verse 31. When Allah subhanaw taala there might be a father who haven't raised their hands, but I mean, the brothers who were before the lectures are in front of Michelle all the time, answering the questions about a coffee. Now it also says in sort of the note in verse 31, what to avoid aloha Jimmy, can you help me noona La La come to floon he says Allah subhanho wa Taala to make Toba everybody he's ordering us to make Toba to make repentance.
He's ordering all of the weavers to make Toba and he says perhaps you'll be successful. So through your Toba, this is one of the ways to be successful in Santo tala.
And this is Ruth rabelo. And as he said, to be successful in this life, and in the in the hereafter as well. And I want to point something out here, if it was said, to a student,
or to an employee, in his place of work, that this path and this way, is the way to success for you.
A teacher tells the students, if you do this, you will get an A plus, or a stars they say in the UK, you get a star, if you
do it this way, if you study this way, the head of the company where you work, he tells you if you want to be successful, this is the path you follow. You're gonna be successful, you have a raise, you'll make more money.
What would a person be if he didn't listen to this advice? What we call what we call this a person?
a loser Good, good answer. Loser. Say somebody is a loser, someone who's not intelligent. Because now you have the path in front of me you refuse to take it. So patent law. So now lots of fun, what's out is showing us that the way to be successful is to tober. So if we refuse to take this path, and this advice, it shows as the brother mentioned that we are losers, that we're somebody who was unintelligent, or correct answers, the third virtue. The third virtue.
Once again, the brothers who are taping the lecture for themselves have no problem if you use it for your personal use. But please do not make it public until the diversion from pinata comes out please the brothers and Shall I know him that they have somebody who he's going to quickly do the standard thing inshallah he's going to review it because you never know when we're talking here. And if something is said is not correct, obviously, we don't want this to represent the religion of Islam. So everything needs to be reviewed and all of us make mistakes, especially when you're sitting here I just have notes in front of me. So I'm saying stuff that perhaps I say something is incorrect. And
once this is reviewed, it can be edited inshallah and be beneficial for the oma. So anybody who records it for his own benefit, that's no problem inshallah, but please do not use it for public use until the official version comes out and shallow Donna.
The third virtue is that the Toba if forgives, our sins obviously forgives all of our bad deeds. Yeah, you know the nominal tool boy the low hanging toe button the suha. As you can see, you have to come to the end.
Here in this verse, Allah subhana wa tada he calls the believers and he orders them to make a towboat to Allah subhana wa tada repentance to Allah, which he described as being Tibetan suha. What is the Toba? That is so
what are the Toba? Its nisour What is it called?
What does it mean the meaning of it
Just sincere Toba pure sober. Excellent. What else?
regret it. All of this can be true. The best. The best definition that I found was a definition given by Amara hapa babila. One when he said that in the Toba, and so it's the Toba that you never have a sin after it's your success. When you're totally you make the tilba you repent to Allah subhanaw taala and then you never return to that sin. So he said, this is the Toba and so on. The fourth virtue is that these bad deeds with Toba with repentance get turned into good deeds. With toboe with repentance, your bad deeds gets turned into good deeds. Allah subhana wa tada says and solten for fun in lemon tebah. Well, I'm Anna Well, I'm in a solid wamena I'm an unsightly hongfa
alayka you bought the de la huzzah yet him has a net that except for those who make Toba who repent and believe and do good deeds. For barely these people, their bad deeds will be turned into what into good ones subhanho wa Taala look at look at the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala test the blessing, not just that he wipes out are bad deeds and forget as far as sins, that he also what takes these bad deeds and other bad things and turns them into good deeds from the Toba. So panela This is the fourth virtue,
the fifth virtue.
And once again, we'll give an example in the fourth or the fourth virtue virtue with the student and with the employee. If somebody now wants to come to him, the head of the company comes to you and says, what happens now? If you mess up and they get you driving a company car, you get into an accident? Or you miss something? And when the company What do they tell you? where's where's the money coming from?
Coming from your salary, how does this feel to you? You happy
you can actually take $5,000 from your salary.
It's nice. You enjoy it. Nobody enjoys it. So now let's say this happens to one of us. And he comes to us and he says
there's a way you can do some more work. If you strive a little bit harder. we'll wipe that out and also will give you instead of taking 5000 we'll give you 5000 more. What does that sounds good.
I'm done. So now also Panama has given this opportunity to take your bad deeds and to turn them into good deeds, not just have them wiped out also to get turned into good deeds and channeled data. The fifth
is that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us
in this dunya if we make Toba we repent to Allah subhanaw taala
the material has been
which is translated as the good provision from Allah subhanho wa Taala as it came in solitude and solitude, verse number three.
virtue is that Allah subhanaw taala
said in the Quran sort of hood, that he will give us the material. He will give us the good provision through our Toba to our repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah said on is still favorable come to matobo la uma Taroko Mata and Hasina Allah subhanaw taala says, and to seek forgiveness from your Lord, and then repent to him, he will grant you good provision. And there's good provision
it can be understood in two ways.
From the dunya aspect, good provision of work of money and what you need to live in this dunya as it came and sort of pull up in verses two and three, when the last panel what Donna said, What may get
Maharaja and what we are Zuko and hate oleic acid. So now we see in this in these in these two verses, Allah subhanaw taala said whoever fears Allah subhanho wa Taala He will make for him a way out. And he will read him from the risk from the provision and that which he never thought possible. So now this is you see from being having Tough luck from making Toba from returning to Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is one of the ways to have the provision of this dunya and it can also
It could also be from a greater provision of that and that's the raw panacea, the peace of heart and the peace of mind. We find through being with Allah subhana wa Taala. Through repenting from our sins, and following that which Allah has allowed us to do and stay away from that which Allah has forbidden us from and we look into the Quran, for example, instead of the
loss of Hannah Montana mentions in Aurora Luffy name war in El Fujairah Luffy Jane that
The doers of good abroad, those who do the good deeds, they will be in pain and pleasure. And those who are evil, they won't be a jehane, which is the hellfire. When I looked at this verse,
some time back, I looked at the situation of the people in the non Muslim lands. And I saw so panela these people, because this verse, obviously, when we hear this step, this verse, we automatically looked at the Hereafter, that the doers of good will be in pleasure. And the doers of evil will be, enjoy him in the Hellfire, that this will be in the hereafter. When we looked at, for example, if you look at the Hollywood actors, and what have you,
they say in their own words, that they're living in a living hell. So even in this municipality, you'll find these people who live far away from Las Montana. They're living in jehane, even in the dunya. So Pamela, and I heard some of them. One time was on the news, a very, very famous actor. I'm not going to mention his name in the budget. But he was a very famous actor. And he said, they asked him why, why do you abuse alcohol so much.
And he had a problem with alcohol addiction. He said, because I'm living in a living hell.
He has all the money, all the fame, the glamour, everything, a person thinks his happiness in this dunya he has it all. And he says, I'm living in a living hell, such as I look at the verse, the ayah. And then I also looked into it even deeper. I said, Now this poor non Muslim who doesn't have this man who doesn't have this app, either. This blessing the sweetness of Eman that Allah has blessed the Muslims with. He lives in jehane and a living hell in this world. And he lives in a man he goes to his grave.
He lives in jehane when he goes to his grave, because his grave May Allah protect us all from that it will be like a pit from the hellfire. And then on the Day of Judgment, when he's judged for his deeds, he will then go to the Hellfire below, protect all of us from that. So this is three stages in this life, he will be living in enjoy him, and then he will be living in
the person who's doing the door of good abroad, those who are doing the good deeds, in this life. They live in name during this dunya even if even if they're poor, they don't have money. Because where's the real happiness, it's in the money and the fame. It's what you find within the peace of hearts in yourself the peace of mind, the hell out of you man, the sweetness of the man is the province that a lot of it isn't set in the Hadith, this is the true happiness and then when he goes to the hereafter
and his grave, the first place in the Hereafter, how will he he will be also inshallah it will be rolled up on real Belgian his grave, it will be like the one of the gardens of the gardens of the paradise May Allah grant us all that inshallah in our graves and in the hereafter and then obviously inshallah hereafter he will be in the agenda, inshallah to Allah. So I when I was looking at this ayah
I saw these three things, a few, maybe months later, a brother who actually just popped up here on the messenger and I had to close them off, he sent me something that even though things said about this as well, so I was very happy to, to see this that even though pain had mentioned, you say the same three things and one of his book that they are non Muslim in the Muslim is all of them in these three stages of their lives in this leftist world in the dunya. in the Hereafter, they will even live in the jehane in the Hellfire or in something that's miserable and they will either live in Nadeem in that which is beautiful May Allah grant is all done inshallah Allah. The sixth virtue
is the fact as it came in the same vein of Bukhari and Muslim that
Allah subhanho wa Taala becomes happy when his servant makes Toba as it came in the head the the low effort of vetova the abbot of the human capital credit and
the point is the beginning of the Hadees that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He becomes happy when one of his servants makes Toba.
And as even when they mentioned Rahim Allah,
it never came
in any act of worship, that Allah subhanaw taala becomes happy if we do it, except for the Toba and the repentance upon Allah. Pay attention to him said Rahim Allah. He said it never came in any other act of worship, or the acts of worship in Islam. The last panel with Allah becomes happy. Yes. If his servant does it, except for the Toba, the repentance to Allah subhanaw taala will humbly liable I mean,
the seventh virtue
is that Toba is one of the reasons for us to find the rule to be humble in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we beg for his forgiveness and we seek His forgiveness to panel with Allah, it teaches us to be humble in front of him.
That takes us to the eighth virtue as well, which is the Toba the repentance. It shows us how much we need the last panel Donna, how much we are needed him to partner with Anna, because he is the only one who can forgive our sins or may appear a little bit in the law who can forgive the sins except for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these two virtues, we'll talk about them together is that shows us to be humble in front of Allah subhanaw taala we beg for his forgiveness, and it shows us also how much we need a loss of power Tyler.
The ninth virtue is that
Toba repentant It teaches the Muslim
the Quran of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How caring how generous Allah subhanaw taala is because he is the one who accepts from us October and if you look at our sins, and look at our bad deeds, which one is more and more with most of us unfortunately, we'll find the sins are more. Unfortunately this time we live in especially we have so many sins and you'll see now the last Matata from his mercy always accepts the tober from us if we are honest and October inshallah will come and how for October to be accepted. But this shows us the how generous Allah subhanho wa Taala is and increases in our love for Allah subhanho wa Taala the 10th virtue is that through Toba
a shape on becomes angry
because he doesn't want you to make Toba. He doesn't want you to repent. He doesn't want this clear for you.
So this is something that in English a fun
and the 11th and last virtue that were mentioned, is that Toba for the oma for us as Muslims we make our Toba and repent to Allah subhanaw taala This is the biggest refutation to our biggest way to refute the enemies of Islam. Those who strive night and day
to attack the Muslim Ummah and to destroy the Muslim Ummah, when they see the Muslims repenting and turning into Allah subhanho wa Taala. How does this make them feel?
How do they feel? They get happy when it's just making Toba.
What they see now for I'll give you some examples from the west some articles I read that one of the goals when they had the Muslims come to the west. So usually the only ones who come are the ones who are weak in their religion.
So when he comes
their sons or daughters, there'll be
no snow skooma
5050 any, he will still have some Islam, but it won't be that much. But the third generation that comes the only thing is gonna be left from there. Islam is what the name
Mohammed Abdullah was his only thing he has is the name. So Pamela, when I read this article, we're sitting in an image of this in a city with the brothers and the University of Medina.
I said this and one of the brothers with this was a brother from France. He said to penola He said, You see this
in our society in France, he said you'll see a woman. She has that by up, it's not that long. And she's wearing Maybe her scarf, have her heads covered. And then you see next to her daughter. Her daughter has a skirt on maybe we'll have we have no hijab on and you'll see the young daughter with maybe a miniskirt on because she's finished. So you'll see this in this society. But now what they weren't expecting is for this third generation now to make Toba and I can point out some brothers who are here. I don't want to do it in some embarrassing but third generation Muslims who grew up in the West and Mashallah, they've come back to Islam. And this is something they were not expecting.
Now, this third generation is coming back. And they wanted now to do something called a homegrown Imam. homegrown. Mmm. Meaning he studies his Islam. He doesn't go to Saudi Arabia to study he doesn't go to Egypt to study he studies in England, or an Australia, England, Australia, the countries that focus on is Hong Kong mm. Because they said they had the problem they said with they found a way the malanez who's to come from from Pakistan or from or from Egypt or whatever, they stopped giving them visas. So they got rid of them. But what about this third generation? What are they supposed to do with these guys, this is a problem, because they're these people are pure
English. Now. They grew up there. They know the society, and they're going to be dangerous, because they can call people back to Islam and have an effect. Have they haven't been successful. And what they want to do with this shows you now that Alhamdulillah the Toba that even though the enemies of Islam they try to put out the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But Allah, He makes sure his light will spread inshallah throughout the earth. So we see this now that when a woman puts on her hijab, and she makes Toba dolla dolla, this is better than
then the people go out and do the riots and do this the Brotherhood.
Who grows his beard and starts to practice he praises five daily prayers in the masjid. He starts to read the Koran, he starts to study about Islam. This is better than the people worship, they go out and they write, and they put up signs and this we love Mohammed, some nice elimination, but then there's no Islam in their life, just the the sign, and the screaming. That's it. So Panama. So now, and I'll tell you the story that happened to some of the early Muslims, when they were going Is this the Islamic empire was spreading until it reached almost towards China.
So one of the generals from the Chinese army or the leader from the Chinese, he sent to them
a letter threatening the Muslim leader and the Muslim army. If you come any closer, we're going to do this in this in this in this. So what did this Muslim leader do? He took
this clip up what was sent to him this letter, and he didn't even bring out a new one. He just turned it over, wrote in the back. First of all, this is an act of disrespect, because coming from a leader from another country, so it's no good as an actor that you didn't even bother to bring your own paper and to answer it. So he turned it over. And he said, La Jolla Matata, melasma, he said the answer is that what you see now what you hear, he said, because we're Muslims were people at that time anyways, unfortunately, like today, he said, they were people of action. Now people have words. So he said, I'm not gonna waste my time, and refuting you're gonna see who's gonna do what and who's
gonna threaten who you'll see when we meet on the battleground. But nowadays, the Muslims around the world.
They like to talk a lot and scream a lot and protests. But when it comes to implementing our religion, along stand ready to plan.
issue with us today, our second point that we're going to talk about is why people do not make Toba.
Why don't people make Toba? With these virtues are incredible. Is this true or not? Look at the 11 virtues you mentioned incredible virtues. So the Toba when it has this status in Islam, what is so many people refuse to make tober
people refuse or don't refuse.
Is this this words harsh? We don't like it. It's not refusing Effie. And you don't you don't make Toba. You don't repent to last month that's refusing.
So why do people refuse to make Toba? What comes between them and tilba the first thing the first point is the weakness in men, the weakness in their faith. And this is the key to maybe almost all the problems we have today as Muslims is our weakness in our men and our faith. So this is the first problem when it comes to why people do not make Toba.
The second one and this is a dangerous one.
When the people have this, Lambo Bella, they just don't really care.
They make Toba don't make Tillman's. Unfortunately people were very weak. And they're human. Even if they don't say it with their tongues, their actions show this and we look into the port on how can somebody just doesn't care and also the pilot that I said it makes it very clear and sorted out off when he said so I know what's on up well Nakamura nalli Johanna McCarthy Romania genuine hints we have made or created for jahannam for the Hellfire, a lot of people from the genie from the inside. Why? What did these people do to deserve this? albedos from Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives everybody what they deserve. Then the verse will continue he said soprano what's Anna? First of all,
no, boo boo.
Left I'm gonna be here. What are you gonna even
a home and then
what have they done? He said these people have hearts, which they didn't reflect with.
Then he said they have eyes which they do not see with. And then they have ears, which they do not hear with. And then within the last panel what Allah say about them at the end of the verse, who you can kill an army belt whom urban hula ecomondo that these people are like the livestock, goats, cows, cows, but just this is their life. Eating and grazing in the pasture isn't just going through life. He said these people are like livestock breloom Ebell. In fact, they are more Australian livestock oola eco filou Valley They are the ones who are absent minded. May Allah protect us from being like that.
The third reason why people don't make Toba and they do not repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala is that when you're far away from most Medina, far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala who is with you
chitlin either this or that. So when you're when you're far away from loss of generality, who do you have with your ship on and his crew of people and they surround you and they hold you down and prevent you from being successful in making
The fourth reason why people don't make Toba is
that they are not truthful in their love
of the prophets of Allah, Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala the people they're not truthful. And their love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
every Muslim now we ask them
Do you love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, do you love Allah? subhanho? wa Taala? They say? Yes.
Once we go back to we talked about for the Actions speak louder than what their words, as we say, in English actions speak louder than words. And we look at the action of this person. Who does he look like? Does he try to look like Mohammed said, The Lord is a limb, or tries to look like Bob and john.
We have the choice. Now wake up in the morning, we can try to be like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whose beard used to fill his chests. And it's not to say them. Or we can take the razor and try to look like George and Bill.
You have the choice. Whatever you want to do. It's your choice, you stand in front of lots of panels on the Day of Judgment. So now the love seems that it's not the truth for the love there now, because if you loved him, unless you want to be like him, in every aspect of life, we mentioned yesterday, the lecture will get the brothers in trouble again. But when she does an example, about the provenance didn't used to be in the service of his one of his family. So now if you love the privacy silom you strive to implement this to the best of your ability, every aspect of life. The process of Did you ever lie?
We want to be like in Malaysia to some so we don't lie. Allah told us not to lie. We stay away from lying every aspect of life Now, a few months ago, what was everybody doing?
How many were in June and maybe everybody was busy with something even sometimes you find them associates they weren't fully at certain times.
Football the World Cup
How do people show their love
for their for their teams have done I hate football. I'm American hummus is not a fitness for me. It's a fit for you guys who grew up with this stuff. I'm done. So now
what? what how do people show their love for their teams?
wearing their shirts, Montez is number one. Maybe on their car you'll find the countries that come from the country. He's got a German flag fly on his car something like this showing your support for the team he loves. Why because the love in his heart. It shows in his actions now. He's wearing the jersey what's the what's the guy's name the everybody's making a fuss about now on the what's his name
on everything in the world. msms cmse
when he goes Missy na from chicken to Pepsi, to Michelle is Missy. And now and this is why they show their love, the love now and the hearts it's showing actions now. So So Pamela, if you love the Prophet sallallahu and it was cinnamon you love Allah subhanho wa Taala your ship and your actions. What Allah says don't do something, you do it. This means the love that you're claiming.
It's not real law homestand the fifth and last reason that I'm going to mention why people don't make Toba
that they're scared.
Is it possible for somebody to be scared to make Toba?
It's not possible.
Yes, no, yes, no.
also very good. At some things the brother mentioned is people people are scared of change. People are scared that he'll do it again. So I have with in front of me four reasons why people are scared of making toboe. The first reason is
that they're scared they will return to the sin that them that they have done the sin they have done. They're afraid they will return to it. And this in itself, it's a good thing. It's not a bad thing. Because when you make the Toby don't want to return. But he bleeds shape when he comes in he fools us into not making tober
so now we have to pay attention to this because he'll say Wait, wait because you want to make sure your total is pure. It's 100%. But inshallah it's going to come if the conditions of the toolbar met, even if you return to the sin inshallah it will be accepted from you. The first Toby you made, it's going to come more detail later. So this now is one of the traps that shavon
does for people is that says wait until you make the pure Toba. What happens?
He dies and he went never had the chance to make the appeal to me, Allah protect us all from that.
The second thing, or the second reason is that they're scared of what people will say.
Now the woman puts on our hijab.
She covers her face. What are the people gonna say about her?
And especially if she's in a crowd and a circle and society that don't do that. Now the man who has been all his life without the beard, obviously he's got all this hair coming on his face. What are people gonna say?
So Rosina, I really want to be here. But I have gray hair brother, so I can't I can't do it. You know, that's why she's. So my gray hair wants to know, who cares? And who want to look like the private citizen who cares if you have gray hair, or what color it is.
So anything, I'm just giving us an example of something that's it's clear other things in life. If somebody wants to make Toby's afraid of what people will say, also, people are afraid the third reason of losing their status is somebody known as somebody who's a bad boy in the society and this and people respect and they fear Him, and He wants to make Toba. He's afraid that he'll lose the status he has. He lose the respect he has from people.
And the fourth reason is any because of lust and desire. People have love for the dunya for example, they're doing something, they want to lose it. They have certain things they want, they want to lose, they're afraid. So these are the four reasons basically that people through fear do not make Toba.
The third point of tonight's lecture is
that the people who want to make Toba they face with a shape on the battle that the people are trying to make Toba face with the shape on. And this is a very important point on the doors of Ramadan. Because
the che have been the shamans from the humans. They start
to distract the Muslims Ramadan.
And they plan and it shows you how the people above the people follow suit, how they plan to make the people go away from civilian to drive them away from the path of last month, and each year now. Now they're planning for next Ramadan. This year, they're ready. They signed their contract with shavonne.
And now they're ready to destroy the Muslim households. And now they're preparing for next year. So now you'll see the signs in this. I saw the other day one I think it's it's not an old one. With this NBC when they say Ramadan. merona. Ramadan brings us together. It brings us together on evil and shutter. It brings us together on watching movies, and brings us together on watching these movies and leaving tarawih in the mid massage, it leaves it leaving the Quran. This is how they say Ramadan ajumma una. Ramadan brings us together.
And look at these people. Now they focus on this month all the time. They're gonna bring all the best movies now during this month.
So you can make sure that you don't go out to eat, you don't get your sins forgiven, because they want you to be with them in the hellfire. They don't want you to go to the agenda. They don't want you to make Toba. They want our societies to be like their societies.
What do low tech phone or chemical phone have at the corner? So they want you to be to make cool for like they made Cooper's you can be equal, not just in that. They're so jealous of the fact that our women are still when they're married. They've never been touched before this kills them. Even a brother went to the American Embassy. And you know, in the contract the marriage contract, they write a literal ballad, which means a woman who has reached puberty and she is a virgin, is that the exact translation? But they translate in some other strange
words, say, why did you change the wording of the marriage contract? And they said, because they wouldn't accept it from us before. Because they're jealous of the fact that the Muslims still have this name and this blessing. They want our woman to be like their women, they want our societies to be like their societies. So now, they're
the people who work with them in our societies, even though they are from any originally from Muslim families, or maybe our background. They focus on these things to destroy the Muslim household during this blesseth month. And so Panama. I asked the brothers recently, I said back when I was in America, in the early 90s, these channels,
we start to pay money for these movie channels. And I said how is it that it's the same thing? You have the cable, you have to pay money for it. But in the Arab and Muslim world? You don't just have movie a 24 hour movies 24 hour movies, and it's free.
It's free. So what is their goal now?
What's their goal?
The cigarettes now? I asked the brother in America because here I mean, even though I think the prices went up, it's still expensive. And it's still excuse me very cheap. In the Muslim world. Now they're coming from America these cigarettes. But they're sold over $3 a pack in America.
But here in the Muslim world and a five $7 retail somebody that I don't know.
So look at this. Look at the different why because they want to corrupt the Muslim societies.
Along with Stan,
the first reflection we're going to reflect on in this war. This battle which we're at
Every day, from the time we wake up in the morning, when the alarm clock goes off now here in Qatar, what time for Southern for your
time. By 330. It's early, I'm coming to a place where it's five o'clock. So now, what's the first thing that happens when that alarm clock goes off every morning?
You 510 minutes, you have a lot more to it. Now if you know 15 I'll tell you some other methods we can pray when it gets a little later right before it goes out. And you'll start you know, I'll give you a photo. He's ready. She had fun.
So now this is the first part of the day, the first thing do you get up? Make Google go to the budget? Or do you get an extra 510 minutes which it becomes an extra hour two hours
as soon as the first the first part of the war, the battle with the shaitaan
so the first thing when I mentioned is what Allah subhana wa tada wants from us, and what she upon and his followers what they want from us. Allah subhanho wa Taala says and salt and he said, What la who you read on YouTube alikum Will you read will let it be Runa Shahada and to me and to me, to me, Lou, male and male and female, in sort of verse 27, last month, and it says that a law wants to repent on you. He wants to accept your repentance. But the ones who follow the sherawat they follow the lusts and desires of this world. They want you to mean even even any to go various straight to the side. And they want you to find out the straight path. So always a Muslim when he reminds
himself when he's in the bathroom. Does he make Toba? Does he not make Toba? He remembers that a lot so far. This is what he wants from him, and the enemies of Islam shippon and his followers that they want from him to go straight.
The second thing we need to focus on when we go into battle with the shavon
in the Battle of repentance, do we repin do we not we put it off later by date.
Now, the second issue is that it's from human nature
to sin, or it's not for human nature. Sure. It's from human nature to sin. This doesn't mean it's okay to sin because it's still a sin. It's called a sin, whether it's from human nature or not. So you make a sin, it's a sin. But it's also part of what Allah He knows we're going to make sense. So it's from human nature. There's some evidence from this from the Quran from the sooner the famous had the
famous idea that shows that's from human nature for us to make mistakes.
Bonanza one khulumani, Adam hopper
era to a boon that all of the children of Adam, they make mistakes. And the best of those who make mistakes are those two were born who constantly repent from their mistakes. And in the verse also you mentioned before last month, and it says that he loves the two were being those who are constantly making Toba and that the word we mentioned before that it's somebody who was constantly repenting, meaning that he's constantly sending that means the last month and as he mentioned in the verse that he loves him because he's constantly returning to a loss of Montana when he makes these sins. The another Hadith, the hadith of Abu huraira, Johan and Sahih Muslim,
where he says well at the nustevia de Allah, the prophet of Islam swears by Allah subhanho wa Taala
that if we never send them to the Boo, that they have Allahu wa jabya comin you have any bona fide you're stuck in a home for your fellow home that if we did not make Toba Allah subhanaw taala would wipe us out and come with another
set of people who would make Toba who would seek His repentance, so he will forgive him because through the Toba, Allah subhana wa tada we see the mercy of Allah, the Rama velocimeter Allah, we see the generosity of last month Allah, we see how generous he is with us upon all of these things, from the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. We see this through him accepting October. So we want the game from this point is that we have to realize, we're going to make mistakes, nobody's perfect. And that brings us to the third point in our battle day whenever we're preparing for battle now. This is now the lecture hall. So we go out and shuttler just like when the general heat comes
together and show with the soldiers, and I'm just giving you inshallah what I found, so we can get ready for this battle. And this is a serious battle. The third thing is what is significant
is not when you make this in, but what you do once you make it because we learned from the second point that we're going to make sense. So what's significant is not that you just don't make sense, but what do you do once you make a decision? This is what's important. And we'll see this in the Quran. In surah, Al anon in verse 135, Allah subhana wa tada says, Well Edina either
Failure of a certain old volume will emphasize those who have done that which is immoral, or then
oppression to themselves by committing sins. What do they do
that go to law? Number one, stop for that reason obey him. Why May your Pharaohs obey the law? Well I'm you see Rama Follow me on the moon.
The first thing they do is that they remember Allah subhanaw taala. The code of law that they remember a lot, him he committed the sin.
It happened he committed it. But as soon as he does it,
he remembers last month Allah and then the stock through with an OB him, then he wants repents from this and immediately. And the third thing, while I'm your Subaru alhama fellow, they do not continue to do what they're doing. After they immediately stopped, they made the repentance, they did not continue down the path of sin, He fell into a sin. He fell into a sin. But then he remember la supernova Tada. Now a brother, he goes out after a show today. And he goes to the soup.
shaper has sent one of his soldiers to the soup with something wearing something not pleasing to us, Montana.
So the brother looks over to the right. And he sees her
the female shavon
he sees her and it's like a magnet
happens, it doesn't happen. It's easy to turn away.
His brother's handle where your watch can see you now that we're in the lecture hall. It's easy to turn away or not? Well, it's not easy. If you said it's easy, you have some issues, you have problems. But it's not easy. If you're a man, it's not easy to turn away. You have to turn away, but it's not easy. difference. The difference. So now
this shavon she's wearing something not pleasing. So he looks and it's like a turns back it looks again, or some say it's in the Hadeeth at the first look is for you and the second one is on you. So make sure you don't even blink. You know the first still the first look
is this video, he's using a fifth of faith on a sheet that is given the federal law. So now he looks he sees there and he looks back again. It looks back a third time he committed to sin. All of a sudden he remembers the verse. He remembers Allah subhanaw taala. Then he goes to the second step.
And then he puts his head down, and it continues and shall have to go to the soup. So have a look at this, you do this how many of you felt this and this is what's important is what's the difference? If it happens to you, is that you remember last panel wattana then you seek His forgiveness. And then you're not continuing down that path. And in this verse, and we talked and the methodology, of course, at the key to the dour is what the basics the foundation, the to hate, the to be the worship of last month Allah worship Allah is one and that joining the partners with him in this verse, Allah subhanaw taala he points this out to the Muslim, the Muslim who reads the Koran and understands it
and pays attention to it. And it came in the middle. And so many people don't pay attention to this. In this verse. It said,
well in a de facto fashion obala infozone. The Corolla remember love the stock photos and obey Him and then they go to the third part, and they forget what's in the middle there when they have failed and obey the law. Who forgives the sin other than Allah subhanho wa Taala the pure tauheed back to the subject of pure tawheed nobody can forgive your sins except for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if nobody can forgive your sins of the last Matala, why have your heart attached? Why offer any act of worship to other than Him subhanho wa Taala
point we need inshallah to reflect on in our battle with the shaytaan is not giving up.
No matter how bad it may seem, and how many sins you might have. We can't give up. Allah subhanho wa Taala says and sort of the Zoomer pulling a bad deal in escrow for them to see him let up not O'Meara Mattila in Allaha pero de novo Jamia in the Who? Who Allah for Rahim, Allah says, and he say to my servants, that have transgressed upon themselves by committing sins, and doing that, which is what I'm doing that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala that does not honor do not give up on the despair of having wanting to getting the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala B and then Allah says, in the law hailed the noble gymea Verily, Allah forgives all of sins. And once again, we go back to
the importance of the Arabic language if you don't have the Arabic language, you can't see how deep the Quran is that he in Maha yoga Pharaoh the Nova Jimmy and Nikita How do you translate this naked on all of them? It's weak. We understand how strong this Nikita is in Arabic form, how deep it is. You see the importance of Arabic
Language and then he puts more emphasis on it supanova to Allah in hoo hoo
Allah for him he puts the turkey in the hole and then brings the other Demeter again who were to put the what the more emphasis elbow for Rahim Allah subhanho wa Taala he's all forgiving All Merciful so you no matter how much the sins are no matter how much you've done the doors of Coburn shall always open and lo always be forgiving for all of sins inshallah tada
Okay, just one minute it seems there's something wrong with the connection the internet's it was on but since I got turned off
in our battle with the ship on and making toboe and this is something I have in front of me in Arabic. The exact terminology in English I know there's a phrase for it, it's not coming to my top my head, would you say in Arabic
And we'll call you to hate on a ledge. I know the meaning of English but what it means is precaution is better than what
looking for a cure. That's the minimum and what is ever phrases like that and like in English,
prevention is better than cure. Prevention is better than cure.
And this was said by hacer el Masri Rahim Allah. When he said photocopier Acer Impala matoba that leaving the mistake and making the mistake. It's easier then seeking the Toba and seeking the repentance because perhaps the Disco's mentioned when they explained this, that a person can make the sin or the mistake and the bad deed, but he Allah subhanaw taala might not bless him to make the Toba so actually leaving it from the beginning is actually easier than you know what
the the secret over there appends it in just like the person now who smoke cigarettes.
Smoked and smoked and smokes if he quit it, tequila, tequila, quick haraam, you destroy yourself, your family, your family this, I can't do it when I want to. I want to quit brother, I really want to quit but I'm addicted. All the sudden he's sick. Then he quits immediately. A few months ago you said you couldn't quit now that you're sick, you quit. So now he wants to cure he wants to do that. Also he has cancer he has this is that Subhanallah how many times we've seen this happen. So now you leave it from the beginning and show him that he won't have the problem at the end. This is what's meant by the statement of Al Hassan Rahim Allah, todo Katia, a sermon Paloma Toba that leaving the
mistake or the bad deed, it's easier than seeking repentance.
though those are five things we reflected on in our battle with the police in Toba. And that brings us to the next point in the lecture.
And that is
the fifth of October.
What do we mean by the fifth of October? Tomorrow, we have the fifth of solids. And tonight we have the fifth of October. What do we mean by the fifth of October?
There's conditions of tober how to make tober all of these type of things. And also find what Allah says in the Quran for Allen and Nola in a lot of stuff, believe them, but to know that there is no loss loss, no deity or they worship civil last month and to seek repentance, or to make a dent to make repentance for your sins. So in this verse, we see that first of all, the Muslim starts with knowledge, and then he seeks
forgiveness. So if we're going to make Toba for October to be accepted, accepted from last month, Allah, it has to be correct. It has to be correct. So there are conditions as the brother mentioned, for making Toba how many conditions are there for October to be accepted from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
For five, anybody else?
That's what we want. three conditions between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And a fourth, if it's between you, and another human being.
The first of these is to leave this in. And that's clear. There's no Toba, if you don't leave this in. The first condition is that you leave this in. The second one is the Netherlands is the regret for what happened in the past. The third one is did you have the pure intention not to return to that sin? I'll repeat them. The first is that you leave this in. Secondly, that you have regrets that the sin ever happened. And thirdly, you have a pure intention and a strong intention, never to return to that sin. So if you have these three conditions, they're met and your Toba whatever the sin might be in the light Allah if it's just between you and Allah subhanaw taala is forgiven. I
want to give some examples.
Leaving a scene, it's clear to everybody. Let's go to the next one. The Nedum
that you have regrets
a person now.
He left us in.
And then he has the strong, pure intention never to return an example for that. Somebody who's working in the marketplace, and the soup, and he's cheating people when he sells to them. He knows how to make tober.
leaves cine people, and he has the intention, he's never gonna do it again. But deep down, he's happy that he actually got away with it never got caught. And he got emotional got a lot of money from doing it. He's happy. Another guy this happens a lot to the to the people now who are in these colleges that are mixed between the the males and the females, you'll find now the boyfriend and girlfriend scenario, it's coming to our countries, unfortunately, because we follow them into doing what they do by by putting the females and males in one college. What's gonna happen when you put them together, so panela so now you'll see that a person, they a lot of times when they after they
graduate, and they want to get married, they start to get straight, they may want to make Toba. So he makes Toba. He knows he's a Muslim stokfella should have done it. And he's what
never gonna do it again after he gets married inshallah. But he's kind of happy that he was able to do it and not get caught and get away with it during his time in university.
His talk was accepted or not
accepted because one of the one of the conditions was not there. Let's look at the third one. A person now who left the sin
and has regrets. A person now goes into his bedroom
and locks the door.
Nobody can see him except for Allah subhanaw taala. But in this case, his Eman is very weak. It's become very weak.
And he wants to look at this was displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. On the internet, for example, I've entered in front of us now we use it as an example. He wants to look at that which is haram and displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala Is it easy to look at?
To find it on the internet that which is displeasing to Allah, it's not easy.
Very easy. So Pamela, and look at the fifth and we live in today. I remember when I was a young man, at the time when I was a teenager, in the late 80s, early 90s. For us to find stuff like that was very difficult, I was a non Muslim at the time, I was saying to find something like this is very difficult. Now, you type in the word and you have all of the facades and in this evil stuff right in front of you. So now the man gets weak.
And he goes into these websites and starts to look at that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala, all of a sudden, it cuts off.
So he's looking, what is the problem with the connection, he found out that his monthly what the shirak subscription is finished. So now he can't look at it anymore, because he has to wait to the beginning of the month that he gets paid to renew a subscription. So he leaves this, he leaves, he leaves it. And he has regretted any Muslim who looks at something like that, and he's a true Muslim have is the he's going to regret what he looked at. But deep down is kind of waiting for the beginning of the month, you know, so he can renew the subscription. So, he said we had we had he has two conditions he's met and the third one is what
is the pure Intuit intention to never go back to the sin has been met. So is towball so will not be accepted. The fourth condition is that which is between you and between other Muslims that if you have done something wrong, another Muslim that the fourth condition, you have to have the three conditions you mentioned in the beginning. And the fourth one is that you seek His forgiveness for what you have said about him or what you have done to him. If you have taken something as his that you return it to him.
This is in general in the case where it causes more harm
than good. For example, now we have our brother in the back of Mohammed Omar Mashallah, he
I said something bad about him.
I said something maybe that was it was liba about him.
And I want to make Toba because I was held on to one Muslim brother.
the condition for him to move from October to be accepted is for Him to forgive me.
But I know that he's a very hot guy, if I tell him he's a black belt in karate is gonna cause you know, he's gonna fight me. I want to fight the guy. He's got a black belt. I'm asking what am I supposed to do? So now what do I do in this situation? It's gonna cause more harm than good. He's gonna fight immediately. He's gonna
By May, is it better for me now to go and fight him, get my sin forgiven or what?
Pray for him
praise him in a gathering as this guy was mentioned different things like this. So now if it causes more harm than good, then you don't go to it. And for a person to be
to talk about somebody to be able to accept it that shows you as a true Muslim, a good Muslim if you can go to them. If I go to Mohammed Omar, I know I'm using him as an example if I went to him now that he would want repentance for your brother, and you help him inshallah, and is it repentance being accepted.
The second point, and the fifth of October is the hookworm the ruling. If a person made Toba and then returns to the sin,
a person who made Toba and then returns to this in
a person now.
He decides Mashallah, he wants to be like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wants to look like the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam so he grows his beard.
Now the sin of shaving the beard has gone away.
But now he's gonna travel
to a non Muslim country in the summer, and he starts to get scared. What are they gonna say?
So he said, You know, he shaved it off again.
The whole time he was sitting during this this time with the beard.
This tober he made before is it accepted or he loses it.
Pay attention. Now, the Toba he did before is it nullified or still it's accepted from Allah. She accepted Him. Therefore Allah mattala ultimately is the Most Merciful. So pay attention this I mentioned before about how shaytan tries to fool us if you make the tilbyr even if you return to the same sin, that the past Toba will be accepted this past repentance from you, a low accepted from you. And it shows us the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala with us.
Another example is
is the tober accepted if we have other sins, for example,
somebody has nine cents that he's doing all the time. He's smoking. And he says I'm going to make tobacco from smoking.
And he still has the other eight cents. Will this tobacco from smoking be accepted or not?
It will come later. So also the shaytani shows the fullest is October is because it shapen will try to fool us with his traps, and chiffon, his puppy.
Pay attention. She thought he knows better than me and better than you and knows how to use it.
I remember one time I traveled
with a brother, and he was from the shepherd method.
So we had been traveling for two days. And we had a lecture in him together.
we fell asleep. It was like it was also in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. So it was a half an hour for the den. And we had traveled to Japan to Riyadh and Eastern Prague, we haven't slept and this guy drives fast. The guest always runs it runs on the car. It was just a crazy trip then. So we're very, very tired. We have a half an hour to go to fudger he's talking to me. I'm talking to him. All the sudden, both of us are outs. I got up right as he was about to go out. So I'm trying to wake him up, brother Get up, get up, get up slot slot. This guy's a student of knowledge and he knows his stuff. I'm hitting him moron. He's dead is another world. Anyways, I had to worry about
myself before the time when I went and prayed. So
as I prayed for God, I came back he didn't get up so I couldn't do anything else I'd go sleep I was I was tired. As we came to start the gym, I asked him, Why didn't you get up? And he said, because in the Shafi madhhab its opinion it's not correct, but I'm saying he follows it. It's not correct, that if the time has gone out
the colors you have any you have the free time, you can make it up as long as in for the next prayer. So if the time is going out, you have the time now to what you can make it up whenever you don't have to make it up right away. But in the humbling method that we studied, and it came into the process, that if you forget your prayer, or you sleep upon it, that you must pray immediately. And this is according to the Hadith from della. So this is what I knew as a panelist is something new. The next time it happened to me where if I woke up late shaitaan comes to you and he reminds you a better method.
I take it easy. There's a difference of opinion between the scholars. So now that he or she thought he has fit, he knows that a for us it will be this way. We talked about the fifth of October. She knows how to come in. He knows the path to take you to call you even in fifth. You're studying religion now.
And I thought to myself, this is the first thing that popped in my head. I'm very tired one day, and I slept too much. So I went to wake up and I remember this statement. More vacation today. I have nowhere to go. There's a long time away. I know if I wake up I'm not gonna go back to sleep. So he's like
I have the other method, you can take it easy today, he starts to give you a massage, take it easy. So Panama. So if he has been, you have to be careful. That's why we say it's a battle with him. We're in a constant battle.
The fourth, the fourth point is,
we're going to then show the next topic next issue running out of time.
Common mistakes and tilbyr common mistakes in October. The fifth point of the lecture is common mistakes and toboe or repentance.
The first one is that leaving the towboat because they're scared to what's returned to the sin, and we discussed this in detail. I'm not gonna mention any more of it, but the first point is leaving repentance because they're scared they're gonna fall back into the sin and we discussed this in detail. The second mistake that people make is
leaving the Toba because they're scared of people, they don't want to leave. They don't make the Toba or they don't make total because they're scared of people also, we discuss this in detail.
The third point is what they call tober. Till could there be the tober of the liars?
The people and I gave an example of the person who didn't have the ability to do that, which is haraam.
So they make what they make tober Now we live in Saudi Arabia, I don't know the situation now. It used to be a must. in certain areas, where the woman cover their face still to the date, you go to some areas. It's not accepted for one to uncover her face and certainly like perceiving what have you. So in these areas, if a person were to come from another country, he would have to force his wife to what to cover her face. So now she knows this is the sun into where they are by to cover her face. Mashallah. So she's okay. I make Toba from not wearing Hijab in my country. And I'm happy with this. Um, she has to do is up there anyways, so she makes this Toba but it's not it's not a real
tober because you see as soon as she gets on the plane to go back to her country, how does she look? She goes back to the old type of half have scarf on the road ahead and what have you we see this all the time in certain countries, where they where they are by their when they go back to the country but then when you talk to them, Mashallah says good Islamic environment atmosphere want to make Toba? So anything the person who says he wants to make Toba because he doesn't have the means to do that, which is haram. Then it shows you that he is what a lion is Toba. And it's one of the mistakes that people fall into. Another famous mistake is putting off tober putting off the tober and the
repentance, saying we'll do it later another time. You find a common a lot of Muslim countries. They say when I become 40.
Sounds shorter. When I become 40. I'll make October. What is it about 40? That makes it so special for October? I don't know.
But what have you done before? 40? Is it possible that before 40
I remember one of the machines was mentioning last year that one of our brothers and Egypt. He was about 25 years old, perfect health. Beautiful brother, Jed graduated from college started working was getting married a few days before his marriage. They came in to wake him up for silicon fudge, and he didn't get up as usually does. And they found that he was dead. 25 years old, perfect health has whole future in front of them the whole world in front of him. And everything is going perfect in his life. They found him dead. Of what natural causes his dad finished his day unfinished, so and he was just sleeping at night. He passed away, you know, you don't know where you're gonna go. So
this person was supposed to be a good brother. So now he is 25 What if he took the methodology of 40 Subhanallah you never know where you're gonna go. So putting off tober is a dangerous thing. I always joke with the brothers from Sudan. Then in Sudan, there's a city called hand to my brother has a house there. And two which means sofa two that we're going to make tober is the name of the city. So I always joke around with about that you actually named the city that we're going to make though we're going to repent. That means they haven't written it yet, and the brother inshallah will call the event
aalameen or salat wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah alamy Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. Marine.
We reached the halfway mark of, of the lecture.
I don't know if we open the floor for questions, or should we continue?
What are you up to you?
Democracy then will raise it will vote for it.
And does anybody want to open up? Who says we should open the floor for questions? Or we can talk for a little bit, maybe a few more minutes and then open the floor for questions. Sounds good. Okay.
One of the famous mistakes or the fourth mistake we mentioned was that the people put off tober. And it's important that we point out that putting off tobor putting off repentance in itself is another sin. When you put it off, you're making another sin, putting it off as a sin and the sin itself is a sin. So you're just adding up the sins of
and don't forget to punt on we stand in front of last month on the Day of Judgment. We're gonna have a scale for our deeds put in front of us, the good deeds and the bad deeds. So we're needed this Toba. So Pamela is going to come and show on the fifth common mistake when it comes to making Toba is that
everybody relies on the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He claims he does anyways. You come to him now, if you're a law make Toba obviously, as a law, go for Rahim.
Allah before Rahim brother, I will no doubt this. We know he is. It was mother's vocal for him. But he's also a cop. He's also severe and punishment. So apparently, look in the verse when it comes into the same verse upon line sort of the hedgerow in verses 49 and 50. What Allah subhanho wa Taala says Nibiru baddie, and the animal for Rahim and to tell my servants that I am full of forgiving the remains All Merciful. I was the verse that comes after that,
when Debbie would never let him and my punishment, it is the severe punishment upon the two eyes right next to each other.
So the same ones who know what that is telling us, the user before Rahimi says that he is what severe and punishment. So this is the common mistake is that people want to rely on this, and they don't make Toba lozol. For him, he will forgive our sins.
We are Muslims.
We are not Christians, the Christians are the ones who believe that Jesus died for their sins. That's what they do whatever they want. That's why now we're in America. We have somebody who was in a reality, you have a Christian who's not a good Christian, Christian is a good Christian, this is true. We have some he's always in the church. He's always doing good, always helping the poor people. When he dies, they say, now he's in a better place.
That's what you think.
But the next person dies, and he's from the mafia.
But he's a Christian. They see now, he's in a better place.
So this guy's been killing people for a living. And now he's in a better place. And the other guy who's been a good guy in the dunya, he's in a better place as well. So Panama is not our belief. So now a lot of Muslims are fooled. They have the same type of RP, they will lie where they think now just because you see, let alone Muhammad Rasul Allah, that you have the past agenda, you have the Hamlet, you have the key, which you have to go down the path. Now, you have to stay firm on the path in order to get the agenda. It's not going to be easy. You're here to be tested. So this is one of the very common mistakes, also, and another Hadith, where people are fooled when it also kind of
Medina does not punish the evil people. Allah subhanaw taala leaves them and doesn't punish them. So people are fooled by this, and they want to follow the same path. And it came in the Hadith. And it was never met. And there's a difference of opinion his scholars have is authentic or not, but one of them Schiff and the other is a cough he mentioned that his husband Daddy, so we'll go with that opinion shall up where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, either right aloha European abs, minute dunya Allah Now see, my your bow for innama who is the Drudge
that if you see a loss of power, give people in this dunya and they're committing sins, they're committing evil actions. And last one is giving them now people are selling something that's out on the net, which is
that he is what is the forum is the Drudge is the draw it is almost like being pulled into something like when you're being set up. Now, when the security forces want to sell the people catch the people selling drugs, how do they catch them,
they set them up this person thinks he's doing he's doing also he gets sets up he gets caught. So now also, Allah, He gives them the person the chance, but at the end, he could be punished at the end and he's not punished in this life, obviously will be punished in the hereafter. But something I want to point out how many people they have been successful, apparently successful in this dunya in the worldly affairs, but when it comes time, to
the end of his life, what you have an evil in the
There was a famous
cigarettes, salesman, a tobacco salesman in Sudan.
He, for his life used to sell tobacco, to make cigarettes and chewing tobacco, what have you, he was very rich, very successful. It all they're doing in front of them, and very happy.
At the end of his life, he became very ill.
He had something, nobody knew what it was. So he started to travel from Egypt, to Jordan, to Europe, and he's spending all his money, his money start to finish, slowly, but surely, the money is finishing. At the end, he started to sell his furniture in his house until he sold his house. And he died from that disease, leaving his family with nothing.
And as a person who has lived the life, it's just an example. And the list goes on and on the people who live and they have the dunya, what's apparent, but these people also you can see, even if they have it, maybe they're living in the living hell, as you mentioned before. So just because it seems apparent that these people were there doing them and they seem happy, we don't want to be fooled by them and follow their path. And this is what the point is trying to point out.
Also, a very important point.
And I'll make this last point on this issue is that if a person is committing a sin, the common mistake is it doesn't give you the permission and the right to make another sin. Just because you fall into sin in a certain category or a certain issue. It doesn't give you the right to make another sin.
So now if somebody has done something that's it's Haram, it doesn't make give you right to do to another hat on. As I've already done this, I might as well do that he had been he tries to fool us with this all the time. Look at you, you have so many sins, you've done this, you've done that, what's one more gonna hurt you. So this is where he pauses and people fall into this. Another thing is that just because you are sitting and certain aspects of your life, it doesn't give you the right to leave the part the acts of obedience that Allah has already used to do. Now a person committed committed
a sin? I don't I'm not How can I pray? I'm not clean. My heart is dirty. She thought I want you to believe this. Now, don't pray. It's better for you. You've already done this, don't pray. You've done this. How could you do go ahead, leave this leave that. So just because you have committed the sins and you have the sins doesn't mean you live the other acts of worship. Because if you're going to be successful in your Toba, you need these acts of worship, to level out your heart for you. Because you have the blackness in your heart from the sins. And at the same time, this is washed away, just like now if you come to something dirty on the ground, and very dirty ground, and you
come and you clean it with Clorox and all this, it doesn't come clean right away. But the fact that you keep scrubbing and cleaning, eventually inshallah it will become clean also the heart. So you need these, these are these actions of care, in obedience to last Matata to help you in your path to toe Benjamin Donna. Thirdly, just because you have fallen into a sin, it doesn't give you the right to do it in front of other people. And well j how do we say in Arabic. And it came in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, khulumani, morava illa and Mujahideen that all of my own money shall be forgiven. Except for those who are any, they do the sins in front of other people.
I'll give you an example. Now with music. Music is a big fitna for a lot of people in these days. So now if somebody is listening to music in his car,
and nobody hears him, it's a sin or not a sin.
Sin? What about the person who turns up real loud? Let's make another noise? Who's going down the street? everybody hears it turns around.
What about this?
One, it's more, it's more in sin. And this is the one that Protestants in him said will not be forgiven. And we'll just hit on the ones who are what do we have in front of other people. Now, if a person has illegal relations with with another woman,
if it's behind closed doors, it's a sin. But he does it in front of other people where they're going out, holding hands having dinner together in front of it, and they know he's not his wife. Obviously, this is even worse, because he's calling other people to it. He's making upset on the earth. He's calling other people to make him look like it's not a big deal. So we must be careful that we have been afflicted with a sin and fall into a sin, that we don't make this mogera do make it clear and public to other people. We try to cover up upon ourselves. The fourth thing is not making dour,
not making Dawa and calling other people to the sin. Now, if a person knows how to do something, that's how Rama
chiffon has taught him how to reach them his harem. Another person doesn't know Oh, no, brother, I'll tell you what you want to do. Just do it like this. That's how you get to it. Now the sin he does, it's on YouTube. And then 1015 2030 people he teaches it's all on your back as well. So be careful.
Just because you've made a sin, you need to be careful not not calling other people to that sin. You must strive to repent and ask Allah for Sophia for his assistance and help me repent and make sure that you not call other people to that. Even if you're weak and you're human, and other person is any you know how to do this was haram teach me? No, I can't do that. Because then the sending will continue to spread. The law protects off from that, this radius of that six points, which is very important, which is the things that help us to make toboe it's about 12 things and we don't have any time
of the law, making sure we have a part two
shall have the lecture. That's the only way I was hoping we'll finish have done the lecture in before in one sitting. But unfortunately, today didn't seem we had the ability to do so. But hopefully, inshallah, what we mentioned was a start for all of us
in front of this great month, which is about to come inshallah, in about 11 days, to remind ourselves of the importance of the Toba. And we mentioned that we have three opportunities three, to what, get all of our sins forgiven in this. So we need to make sure that we strive and as the last one that says, well, Athena jado, feanor, Nadia, no subarna those who strive for his valuable guide into our ways, it's not easy. Those of you who have the television in your house, those of you who watch the movies, and shaytan is gonna call you during this month to sit in front these movies not to come to the budget, and to break out the way we want during Ramadan, to make an agreement.
Any a ceasefire to say, let's take the television and put it away for Ramadan in least it's a start is a better it's not a complete Toba. But it's a start down the path of tober instead of it has got people hooked.
It's got people hooked, you'll find a brother, my brother most special, they can't, it can't stay away from NBC action.
It's a fitness.
So now we want to put these televisions away during Ramadan. And I shall hopefully after Ramadan as well. We have there now you have for example. And also which brings you 52 Islamic TV stations only nothing else. So I'm not saying it's haram to watch TV, it's okay to watch that. Also, you can get with this these 52 stations if you pay the extra money for alleged, which brings you for the children in about 1415 other stations. So now the thing is people want to pay the money that we're stingy, we will pay money for other things, we won't eat for 300 reals dinner Mashallah. But to bring pay 300 400 reals, for our children to have something that's suitable and hello for them to
watch, we won't do it. So Panama. So now the people who have the television, put it away for Ramadan, because if you leave in the house, you're going to you're going to lose
at least the chance to put that away. Because they're gonna bring these movies to you at the time of thoroughly to make sure you don't break because I don't want you to get your sins forgiven. So we must remind ourselves the beginning that we're entering now and shall enter a battleship on, he's going to try to call us to all of his evil during this month. And this is an opportunity for us and remind yourselves, of your loved ones of your brothers in Islam, who are not with you this year.
How many of us know somebody who passed away this year?
Let's see some hands. somebody knows somebody in this past year who has passed away.
A lot of us people don't want to know people, honestly. Now I was thinking spinal. And now I mentioned in the beginning of our lecture series, she actually Mohamad said Hydra himolla and every time we have something and we do in Sudan, it's called a dour week, that week about six different lectures during the week. Different do it Michelle who give the lectures in a certain mosque in Khartoum and every time I've given a lecture pretty much my name and his name are in the same list for him online. So I thought about it now for the lectures for Ramadan. This will be the first time that I'll see my name on the doors of the massage it and I won't say his name or him on last panel.
And he's still any handler a lot chose him to die in his path and giving Dawa we still find it so hard to believe in somebody that beneficial to them. He's gone Rahim Allah. So now how many of our loved ones wanted to be here with us they wish they were here with us. And they want to have the opportunity to fast one more Ramadan to have these sins forgiven. So now inshallah we are all alive, at least Ramadan, that we have this opportunity. Allah has blessed us with this opportunity to have the chance of the daughter of Toba to be open for us and to have all of our sins forgiven. Three, three different ways. And then just the regular tober as well. You just make Toba and you stop the
sins, obviously you'll get your sins forgiven as well. But on top of that, there's three other ways to have your sins forgiven. Now, during this month, we asked almost a month.
Plus all of us with the ability to do so how much time we have left?
Anybody has maybe tomorrow we can answer them. There was one thing I'll say real quick before we finish that some of the sisters, they sent a request that the mothers who bring their children
control their children, I'm not going to tell the sisters not to bring their children to the masjid because I believe it's from the sooner for the children to come. And the children have this habit. They used to come I was our children. And I'd like the children this habit, though, but nonetheless, anyway, to try to control them. Perhaps any sisters who have children within those sit in the back, if the child starts to make too much noise, they can pick them up and take them outside. Because you know, the sisters were coming to benefit. And it's difficult. When you hear the noise. Obviously, we heard some of it down here as well. I noticed that, but it wasn't as bad obviously as for the
sisters that who cannot hear. So if you bring your children and I encourage everybody to bring their children, it's a good thing. And these events Sunday they bring the families together, the families get a chance to come out. And there's one of the things we like about any living in America as Muslims is the masjid there. It's a real community center whereby brings their kids and the families come together it's a very nice asset and it's how Islam should be the most it should be an Islam it shouldn't just be a place of five daily prayers should be a place where families can come together and have fun and shall get together and enjoy life together. But when there's a lecture and there's
benefit going on if the children are making noise please make sure you take them out take them to the back or things not to they calm down and channel down also before they come obviously any the ones who understand or have more understanding when you teach them you're going to the message now that obviously it's not like you're going to the playground, so you have to become in teaching inshallah they will learn in the lead tada Willow Adam was solo cinema Baraka and Mohammed.
Okay, just before the Select inshallah with the Imam is getting
squiggle is equivalent to good point and obviously inshallah it should have came but we ran out of time. No, no, it's it's a very good point. And I say I say to you does echo here, but as you saw half of the lecture, we only finished Nonetheless, the brother brought up a very good point. are the major sins included or not?
How do we know? Where do we go look for
now, I want to know where we find the answer. And the other Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim said, at Jumeirah Juma ramadan ramadan Serato comes the father the prayers between them the daily fight the prayers and the Juma between the Juma and Ramadan between Ramadan kathrada lima bean or mocha feraud. They are they are a type of forgiveness work comes between him within the Hadith, my student will cover that which doesn't have the major sins. So we benefit from the other Hadith. what's meant is the minor sins that are forgiven, and somebody is still on the major sins. They're not forgiven unless he makes toboe from them especially. There's a good point that brother brought up and it
probably would have came in the lecture but from the left, I say to him, for me this up and clarifying this. And Allahu Alem was a low cinema Mohammed
