00:02:07--> 00:02:10

And today's hope insha Allah, huzzah Baraka, what's Allah?

00:02:12--> 00:02:27

We're going to take a journey through the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, reflecting on some of the acts. But before we do, before we start the journey, I have two questions that I want to ask all of you.

00:02:29--> 00:02:37

And there's two conditions before you answer these questions to yourself. And that is first of all, that you're honest and your answer.

00:02:38--> 00:02:57

And secondly, is that you reflect on the key word in the questions. The first question is, do you really want the mouthfeel of the forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Taala? Do you really want to learn to forgive? And the second question is,

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

do you want the agenda?

00:03:04--> 00:03:12

Now let's be honest with ourselves as we start, and let's focus on the key word. Let's highlight the key word, which is really

00:03:13--> 00:03:19

because everybody with their tongues, they're gonna say yes, of course, inshallah. But when you look in your actions,

00:03:20--> 00:03:26

do your actions show the actions of somebody who really wants the agenda, reflect on that?

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

Because the reality of really, it's scary.

00:03:32--> 00:04:00

The tongue it's easy to say, but the reality of really, when it comes to the actions, this is scary, but Alhamdulillah No matter if you were honest, which category you fell into when you answered we're gonna take some advice today. Some advice from Allah subhanho wa Taala. About how to be successful about how to get his macfeather His forgiveness upon what salah and how to be successful to make it into the agenda. And we're gonna start our journey.

00:04:01--> 00:04:14

And the book of Allah subhana wa tada and sort of Talia Milan, chapter three, verse 133, when the last panel what Allah says was do Isla milk pierotti mirabito agenda.

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

Allah says to us,

00:04:18--> 00:04:30

to be fast, to race, to strive for the forgiveness of your Lord and gender. Jen nuttin out to her summer.

00:04:32--> 00:04:42

In a gender, a paradise, which is as vast as the heavens and the earth. It has been prepared for the, for the God fearing.

00:04:44--> 00:04:53

We need to reflect on two things in this verse. The first thing is the command of the last panel what was said to you that we need to race.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

We need to strive if we really want the forgiveness of a law and agenda.

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

You have to earn it. You have to work for it. It's not gonna come easy. And that's why I believe it Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us, and he told us that he salatu salam. When he said it fulfill Jenna, Bill mcherry will fit in.

00:05:19--> 00:05:31

That the agenda has been surrounded by difficulties. Why the Hellfire has been surrounded by the desires as a warning for us to pay attention, that if you want the agenda,

00:05:32--> 00:05:45

that you're going to have to strive for it. You're going to have to work for it. And the second thing we need to reflect on in this verse is who the agenda has been prepared for. Or at least

00:05:46--> 00:05:53

it has been prepared for those who fear along the maturity. Ask yourself

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

are you from the matcha tea?

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

First of all, what is it?

00:05:59--> 00:06:32

The scholars of Islam they said that taqwa and tegile been a carabiner he will call you to put a barrier between yourself and the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Have you put this barrier between yourself and the punishment of a law by doing what you're supposed to do during the holidays, and stay away from the harm that you've been ordered to stay away from? If you have Alhamdulillah you found the matcha tea, and if you strive to do it, even if you have shortcomings, inshallah you'll be from them.

00:06:33--> 00:06:50

But if you're not from those who strive to do that, if you haven't put that barrier between yourself and the punishment of a law, remind yourself time and time again, who read that little monoterpene the agenda has been prepared for those who fear Allah. May Allah subhana wa tada make us all from those who fear Him.

00:06:52--> 00:07:08

So who are the Motoki? What are their characteristics? What makes them so special? How can we be like them? Allah subhanho wa Taala. He continues in the next verse, by describing them in describing some of their characteristics

00:07:10--> 00:07:17

allatheena young Philco and f is so rah, rah he will care demeanor over you there will have been a nurse will know who you hate boomers,

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

those who give at the time,

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

of ease and the time of difficulty.

00:07:26--> 00:07:55

Because giving when you're rich, give me when you have it. That's easy. But the true believers, the ones who give at the time of ease and a time of difficulty. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us a sadhaka to borhan that the sadaqa is a as a form of evidence of your belief and loss of panelboards Allah told us that we will never gain the beard, all of that which is good. He said to us, Wellington will be

00:07:56--> 00:08:04

a boon, you will never gain the beard. All that which is good and pleasing to a law until you get from that what you love.

00:08:05--> 00:08:31

We need to remind ourselves time and time again about the importance of giving. Even if it's something small, it doesn't have to be big money. It can be the change in your pocket. Pay attention what's the profit so the law is seldom said to us when he told us to fear the hellfire. He prescribed for us what he said with a topo known willowby shippi Tama fear the Hellfire, even if it's with a half of a date, something that's small,

00:08:32--> 00:08:58

give, it's a form of sudden as a form of evidence. Those who give it time of difficulty and ease will carry them in a life. Those who restrain their anger. What is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say about the Academy in LA. Those who give those who can who restrain their anger. He said la Salatu was Salam mermin George Martin,

00:08:59--> 00:09:27

Roger on in the law mangiarotti leaving Kazuma have done efectivo which I love, that there's not a goal that's more rewarded from a law than the gope of angers or the goal of pride swallow by the servant, when he wants to face of Allah subhanho wa Taala he wants to reward him. He wants to be successful in the hereafter. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said and pay attention to this for the brothers.

00:09:28--> 00:09:31

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

Man Kazuma leavin well who are called Iran, Allah annunciato whoever restrains his anger when he has the ability to do something about it. I mean, he can cause harm to somebody. He's the boss, he can harm the person beneath him. He can get his revenge he has the ability to get his revenge. But what does he do? But he leaves it up to what you do which Allah He leaves it for the face of a lawsuit.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Kind of what Santa he wants to reward from Allah what as he gets.

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

The prophecy seven said,

00:10:07--> 00:10:16

Thou Hmong, Allah, Allah to milk Yama, Allah will call you in front of all of the creation on the Yeoman, Yeoman piano.

00:10:17--> 00:10:44

You say you're a human, he Masha, Allahu Akbar. The prophets I send him said Allah will call you by your name in front of all of the creation because you restrained your anger, and that's enough and rewards. But on top of that, Allah will tell you to choose from the hood and even what you want. A lot will be that blessing for restraining the anger will feed on the nest, the third characteristic, and those who pardoned and forgive others.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as he said with his companions One day,

00:10:52--> 00:11:28

he said, a man will come to you, from the men of the people of gender, he went down to that door. So when the man walked in the Sahaba wants to know what was so special about what he was doing. So they followed him and from them, I've done it but I'm gonna want to know exactly what this man was doing. So he could do the same thing so he could be from the people the gender, but then when he saw his rebar that he saw his worship he saw he was just a normal one of the Sahaba he didn't have any extra a bother any extra thing he was doing. So we asked him at the end he said the process that he said this about you what is it that you do that so special? He said I don't know anything I do. Except

00:11:28--> 00:11:54

learn. Wolfie lbca Allah Muslim, I don't sleep at night and there's anything in my heart against another Muslim forgives his brothers portrays his brothers and goes to sleep every night with nothing in his heart well yeah for well yes for Allah to hit buena para la Hola. Come pay attention to this beautiful verse and Soto to know when Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he says to us, He commands us. Well, yeah.

00:11:56--> 00:12:18

So let them poured in and overlook a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then a law as a as a question. And the next part of the ayah Allah to hate Boehner, a young fellow who don't you want to learn to forgive you? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said when he was on the member,

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

or hameau tour hameau.

00:12:22--> 00:12:56

Pharaoh, Pharaoh Allahu Lacan, he said, Have mercy. A law will have mercy upon you forgive and a law will forgive you. We need to remind ourselves of these characteristics and remind ourselves when we strive to be from the multifeed when we strive to be from those who are the doers of good. Allah subhanho wa Taala says at the end of this verse will law who you hate boy, Marcin, and a law love those who are the doers of good. So when you're practicing these characteristics, when you're striving to please the law, striving to get to the agenda, a law will love you.

00:12:59--> 00:13:08

But wait, we said it's going to be difficult to path. So what happens when we fall into shortcoming when we fall into sin? Because it's going to happen?

00:13:09--> 00:13:18

Pay attention to the next verse. Allah subhana wa tada says to us, will lead in either via loofa he shall turn over the moon.

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

And those if they do that, which is immoral,

00:13:25--> 00:13:44

they do that which is immoral, or they oppress themselves oppress themselves by sitting and doing that what's not supposed to? Do? You mean to tell me that the motor team, they do that which is immoral, and they fall into sin? Yes, the profits of this enemy told us kulu kulu Benny Adam capo

00:13:45--> 00:14:26

etowah Boone, they're all of the children of Adam. They are sinners and the best of the sinners are the ones who are constantly repenting to them constantly repenting to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the difference between the tepee between the monoterpene the real believer and the others, comes in the ending of the ayah. When Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the steps that they take when they fall into sin will lead in a deaf or aloof, he shall turn old Alamo and foster home What do they do? Step number one that go to law. They remember our last panel what's out, they fell into the sin because they're human beings and have shortcomings. But when they fall into this indicator law, they

00:14:26--> 00:14:33

remember last panel, what's Allah, they remember the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they immediately step two for stuff

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

they seek, they seek for their forgiveness for their sins right away.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

What may have been in the law, and who can forgive the sense other than a law, a reminder about the importance of to heat the importance of La Ilaha Illa law, only returning to a law when you commit a sin not to anybody else what may have failed and obey the law and who can forgive your sins other than a law. Step three comes now

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

Well let me use your LMS Lumia demo and they do not persist on doing what they're doing while they know they know they have sent they know they have shortcomings. So they take these practical three steps they remember Allah subhana wa tada then they raised for the get the forgiveness of a law and then do not persist on doing what they were doing.

Bismillah he will Kapha wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Mustafa, what

00:15:47--> 00:16:30

are the brothers and sisters in Islam as the last panel what Allah continues after these first three verses, and telling us that if we want to be successful, we really want to get to the agenda. We really want to also panel with Allah forgive us that we have to race for it, we have to strive for it. And then he showed us a panel with Allah some of the characteristics of those who strive for his forgiveness and for the agenda. And then he showed us the steps that we need to follow. If we do fall into shortcomings into sin. Allah subhana wa tada then gives us a beautiful reminder. And the fourth verse, when he says to us, hula encourages Pharaoh to mirabai him ma Jin Jin Tae Jerry mean

In this beautiful reminder, Allah subhanho wa Taala says those, the ones we mentioned this hope, but those are the ones who will get the forgiveness from their lords, and the agenda, the agenda, the paradise which with many rivers flow, to be living there eternally, and what a great reward for those who strive to Panama. A beautiful reminder at the end, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. As we go home today, we reflect on what has been said in today's cookbook, and remind ourselves and constantly ask ourselves, do we really want to be forgiven by Allah? subhanho wa Taala?

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

Do we really want the agenda?

00:17:19--> 00:17:51

And if we're honest, we're gonna look into our actions, because actions speak louder than words, when to reflect on ourselves. And we to remind ourselves when we do have shortcomings, when we do fall into sin, is this really the way the true believers should be? Is this really what I should be doing if I really want to be successful, and the hereafter and then we need to remember the practical steps then we do fall into sin, that we immediately Remember last panel with salah and then we seek His forgiveness, and then we refrain from these since
