Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He also be mine. salaam aleikum, wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato. My brothers and sisters in Islam what I wanted to share with you today is something about the power of Allah still for the power of a tober repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala but first and foremost, let me congratulate you all on this Blissett month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability that we worship him Subhanahu wa diallel the way he deserves to be worship. My brothers and sisters in Islam, this month of Ramadan is also known as Shahada Toba, it's known as the month of repentance.

00:00:43--> 00:01:27

Why? Because almost most of the ahaadeeth that spoke about Ramadan, if you were to look at them and analyze them, they speak about the fact that the grand reward of Ramadan is to be forgiven from your sins. If you looked at the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in where he said mon sama Rama Varma amen and naughty seven or fewer Allah who metta condemning them be that the one who fasts salam o born out of he men out of faith. In other words, he fast sort of move on believing that this is a legislation and a commandment and an obligation from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, whoever fast sort of move on with that Amen. What the seven and seeking the reward only from a loss

00:01:27--> 00:02:10

or shall no one else. The result is fulfilled Allah who met the condom in them they that all his sins of the past are forgiven a complete forgiveness wipes away the slate clean so part of the law and abuse all along while he was still upset in another Hadith, man call mamajuana Eman and YT seven or fewer Allahu Mehta condemning them be that the one who stands in worship prayer will lay or the night prayers the total we pray whoever stands that out of amen what the seven out of faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala and seeking a laws or agendas reward. Also the result is offered aloha metta put them in them be that all of his previous sins are forgiven. Then in the case of Allahu alayhi wa

00:02:10--> 00:02:56

sallam said in another Hadith muncom and a letter D men are deserving of your Allah who met them in them based upon a law that the one who was to stand in worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala we night pray of Lee let the other which is possibly on five nights of Ramadan and that is the last 10 nights the odd nights of them. And if he posts the most to worship Allah in these nights out of eBay and faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala what the seven and seeking the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala yet again the reward and the result is off your Allahumma Cardamom in Zambia so Allah that his previous sins are forgiven. In another Hadith sharabi Allahu anhu. She says to the soul of Mosul,

00:02:56--> 00:03:28

Allahu alayhi wa sallam in a doctor a little cutter, if I was to sense or feel that I am living during let them cut. What should I say? If I feel like it's later than other What should I say? Once again an abuse Allahu alayhi wa sallam he sister, say Allahumma inika for one to hibbeler for farfan ni CE O Allah, you're the one who pardons You're the one who forgives him when you love forgiveness. So power law stop my brothers and sisters at this word and reflect to him wouldn't

00:03:29--> 00:04:13

allow soldiers describe themselves as though as the fact that he loves to forgive. So power law law What? Who which kind of human being ever goes around to someone who says I love to forgive? Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it a point to teach us his weak servants that he loves to forgive. And this if anything, it's a door of hope that opens up before each of us. He says to her say a llama in the calf to him Bulava. You'll have to forgive far for me, forgive me. So power law. So in other words, the Hadith and the drama that he told her to focus on was a duet that brings a person nearer and nearer to the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala for we've always had if we learn that one

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

of the biggest points of Ramadan is that you come out of Ramadan clean and you're forgiven from your sins. But then my brothers and sisters in Islam, it is so serious that a person is supposed to take advantage of this month and take advantage of the forgiveness of a loss aversion and be sure to forgiven so serious that if a person finishes Ramadan, and hasn't been forgiven for then such a person deserves to be cursed by Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'm not making up these words. These are actual words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The opportunities of earning forgiveness in Ramadan are so huge and so great no matter how and which angle you approach them on.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

To the point where if you do not end up being forgiven by the end of this month, you're a person that deserves to be cost. Where is the Delete for this? And the reason Allahu alayhi wa sallam one day he ascends the minbar. And as he's ascending his member, he says, mean, mean. I mean, he says it three times because his mimbar was three steps. was so how about all the Allahu anhu that attending this whole, but this is the first time they ever witnessed something like this or see something like this. So now they're curious to ask him. Why did you say I mean, so after the whole, but they went to law school of law sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they said to me also a lot. We heard you see me

00:05:41--> 00:06:31

in three times Why? He said to them, as I ascended the first step, gibreel alehissalaam came to me a lot. But imagine that your dream is coming, you know, you believe only comes down. When he's coming to destroy a nation for rebelling against the last version. He only comes down to send revolution or so you can imagine this is a huge moment for jabril to come down. And he came and he said todo sobre la Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam, a lovely man and family in a dark aroma bond for them. You know who that may be the one who enters Oman, and then he comes out of Ramadan, he completes the 30 or 29 days of Ramadan. And he's not forgiven for that may such a person be disgraced and May he be

00:06:31--> 00:07:01

humiliated? veggie breeds? masala maharlika Sallam say me, and that's why I interview some Allahu alayhi wa sallam said me. In other words, if Ramadan finishes, and a person hasn't earned complete forgiveness of your sins, such a person is caused by law, by breed and by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah He my brothers and sisters, this is a heavy curse, and cruelly rightfully so a person deserves to be cursed if he's not

00:07:03--> 00:07:45

only been forgiven for how many opportunity after opportunity, there is for a person to be forgiven in this blistered mouth. We've already finished the first night of Ramadan waiting the second night of Ramadan. And there are people that have already been forgiven for their sins and the recent alarm Allah He will send them he says, when he left here are called Amina Nell was early Kofi Lee, Laila, and in another generation with Alec if he could do Meanwhile, ADA and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that Allah subhanho wa Taala frees people from the fire every night. So that's 30 opportunities, and isn't. There is another narration that mentions yo Min weleda every day of

00:07:45--> 00:08:26

Ramadan every night of Ramadan. So that makes it 60 opportunities of being freed from the fire, not only having your sins forgiven, but being freed from the fire itself. We already tonight, Friday is the second night of Ramadan. So there are people that have already been freed from the fire already from yesterday's power law. These are people that have already taken advantage of this blessed month, and if accepted it and acknowledge that to be a blessing, have a lot of social upon it, and have been focused and dedicated and committed to worship Allah azza wa jal every second of this month. So Pamela, so are we from these people that have been freed from the fire and earned a lot of

00:08:26--> 00:09:10

social forgiveness yet or not? We have a hammer home alone and they explained what does it mean to be freed from the fire. They said it means that such a person might fall into sin major or minor after that, however, just before his death, Allah subhanho wa Taala would enable him to make a Toba that would keep him clean be vanilla, and admitted into the paradise. My brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's understand the connection that fasting has with October. You know, my brothers and sisters in Islam, at the very beginning when Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam alayhis salaam, He created him in the paradise and that is the same paradise that allows origin promises the believers

00:09:10--> 00:09:28

that they will enter at the end of times. When Allah subhanho wa Taala created him he commanded him and he allowed him to roam freely in the paradise and eat whatever he wants in the paradise laws or shall he said to Adam alayhis, salaam and Hawaii, his wife, Saku lamb in Haifa, to

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

eat from wherever you want in this paradise and enjoy whatever you eat. But then he said, well at Aqaba, heavy shujaa Don't come near this tree there was one forbidden tree that they're not supposed to eat from it. So Pamela imagine the Paradise is much bigger than Earth, how huge it is, and it's full of gardens and trees and lush Allah azza wa jal, he says was your narrative alfalfa? It's full of gardens. And there is one tree they're supposed to avoid hay. The question is, how are they even going to find

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

To eat from it, not shippon did his work and slowly but surely he got a family used to that tree and Adam ate from that tree Ali his setup and Adam because he ate from the street. he disobeyed Allah. Allah azza wa jal, he said while saw the moral bubble for Hawa that Adam alayhis salam obeyed the commandment this obeyed the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala by eating from the street. So what happened because of that alarm Xhosa removed him and how we're from the paradise he removed them.

00:10:33--> 00:11:20

And being removed from the Paradise is teaching us what the results and the consequences of sins are. You know, when he was in the paradise he was living in luxury, in peace in tranquility, eat what you want, no worries, no problems. But look what sins do to mankind. As soon as he committed a sin, He went from a life of Paradise to a life of misery on Earth. This is what Earth is a life of misery. This is exactly what the consequences of Sims are. They take a person from from pleasure and contentment and happiness takes him all the way to a life of calamity and misery. So Pamela, so my brothers and sisters in Islam, what happened after this is as a form of repentance, Allah subhanho

00:11:20--> 00:12:07

wa Taala legislated fasting, since the sin was something to do with food, he ate something wrong, then the repentance from that is that you're supposed to first in order to go back to the paradise. So it is a mercy from Allah subhanahu Medina, that he gave us a month of B in which we are supposed to fast. And when we first were supposed to remember the sin of Adam alayhis salam, and that what got us removed from the paradise to the earth was eating, eating something how long it landed us on Earth. So now the only tober and the way back to the paradise is to add heat to a lot of socialist commandments. mazaya leases for many tebah who de la abou and ESCO anyone who follows my

00:12:07--> 00:12:49

commandments, he will never be led astray and he'll never be misguided, and from one of the commandments that allows or shall commanded us, and one of the big commandments because it's a pillar of Islam is fasting. And this is how fasting is a form of tober we remember what Adam alayhis salaam committed of a sin, and we found from food and from drink and from sexual activity for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala in hope that we earn amazonians pleasure in hope that we earn more so part of what I had is acceptance in hope that this is all this is our form of Toba to accept the promise and admit us back into the paradise once again. When Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:12:49--> 00:13:34

that the one who fasts on mobile and follows it up with six days of chawan then it is as though he has fasted the entire Yi Masha Allah yummy it's as though that a person has the opportunity to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, having been rewarded for literally fasting every single day of the week. And imagine this you meet I'm most proud of what I do on the Day of Judgment, having fasted every having had the reward of fasting every single day of the and he's such a person has actually made a Toba to a loss of Hannah who died from his sins. And of course a lot of social did not legislate upon us too fast every single day. He knew and He created us week. So

00:13:34--> 00:14:17

allows origin said take this month, Chabrol on mobile and just trust this month and be in the lead at the end of it. A person is forgiven from his sins. This is the power. This is the power of the explicit month. And this is basically the power of a Toba. The power of adobo is that it earns a person complete forgiveness from his sins. And it brings him closer and closer to the love and the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters in Islam, the word adobo actually it comes from the word tether, tether. And the word Devin Arabic means to come back. So what does that all mean? It means that a person acknowledges that he has gone so far away from a loss origin

00:14:17--> 00:14:59

because of his sins, and his heedlessness and unawareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala that now when he performs a tober, he comes back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's the meaning of a Toba to come back to a loss aversion. So in the meaning of a tober is the acknowledgement of a person that he has gone really far from Allah subhanho wa Taala and Ramadan once again, my brothers and sisters in Islam gives us that opportunity to become again once once again aware of a loss origin and to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala a bit by bit so that allows or shall forgives us, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Now that you understand the importance of a Toba and its connection with Lama

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

bond and it can

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

With fasting, when you fast when the days are unfolding of Ramadan, remember your sins during the day, remember your sins and really regret them from the bottom of your heart. Remember them during the day and plan that by nighttime. I'm going to ask a lot social to forgive me. Remember your sins during the day, and plan for what you're going to see to a loss of Hannah hautala at the end of that night, and how are you going to ask Him to forgive you from your sins? Allah subhanho wa Taala every single night, he comes down to the first heaven not only at Ramadan, but in every single night of the, you know, and what the question is why? You would have thought that since a lot of social comes

00:15:42--> 00:16:17

down to the first heaven every night in the last third of the night, this is a special event should have just happened once a year or twice a year, or probably just a normal born. Why is it happening every night of the this is to teach you and I how much we are in need of a loss of Hannah what and how much we are in need and how desperate we are to always request an ask from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So loss aversion comes down in the last third of the night. And you during the day of Ramadan, remember your sins, and think about them. And then when the night comes, as a last question comes down, he asks he

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

asks,

00:16:20--> 00:16:47

help me Muslim feeling fulfilled? Is there anyone out there that is seeking forgiveness so that I may forgive him? Can he is there anyone out there bothered by his sins? Is there anyone out there that feels horrible and miserable and choked by his sins? Is there anyone that just feel so bad about his sins, and he's asking for forgiveness, and lost promises, so that I may forgive him among

00:16:49--> 00:17:31

himself is the one who makes the call, in the last third of the night, encouraging His servants to get up, pray, even if it was to look at the last panel who died a big for his mercy and His forgiveness. That's all it requires a tober is not a complicated matter in Islam. It's not something complicated and difficult. It is something very simple. That was taught to us by most of our time and look at the love and look at the mercy and the compassion of a larger version, that it is his two parents who died who taught us how to make it over, you know, in the story of Adam alayhis salaam that we just shared when he committed the sin. He felt bad about his sin. He felt horrible

00:17:31--> 00:18:16

about his sin. How is he going to talk to Allah? How is he going to express that he regrets what he did? And how is he going to express that Allah, I'm in need of your forgiveness. He didn't even know what to do. He had no words. There was no way at that time there was nothing or most of what the news, the honesty and the sincerity of Adam alehissalaam so a lot of social says in the ad set a lot called who Bobby Kelly met Adam alayhis salaam was given words from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah give him words. Imagine that. That's how much a law surgeon wants you to make Toba that he guided us to adobo. He guided us to the words were supposed to say that would earn us a complete forgiveness

00:18:16--> 00:18:39

of sins, power law, law, he's the one who knows the laws. And he knows him for his forgiveness and for his mercy would love him so much soprano who died last Zoysia. He says Adam received words from a law. What were these words that Adam received? A lot of Xhosa? He says in sort of color or better? Benner Valentina fusina

00:18:40--> 00:18:53

Lena Hamner, Linda coonan, liminal ha serene. These were the dryer. This was the words that a lot of so shall give Adam and he set up and his wife where the words were a lot Zoysia theme See, or better.

00:18:55--> 00:19:38

Start your day, when seeking a loss forgiveness with the word or banner, our Lord, acknowledge that this is your Lord. This is Rob. Rob comes from the word Adobe, Adobe meaning when someone disciplines someone, when someone looks after someone, when someone takes care of someone, that process is called a total beer. You know, like a parent to his child, when he looks after him, nurtures him, disciplines him, feeds him provides a safe environment for him. This is all called a total beer, while social from his names is a lob, which comes from a total of beer. So when you want to make a desire to seek a loss forgiveness begin by saying robina and when you see the word or

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

better, remember a loss compassion upon you. Remember a loss care and love for you. Remembering the fact that you're just standing and making the dryer. That's almost k for you. That's a lot of compassion a lot for you. That he allowed you to stand before his hand and make a drama. That's an honor to stand before a lot of social

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

raising your hand making a Dwyer is an honor. So many people are deprived from this. So first you need to be sincere and honest like Adam alleys and see how he wants to. He wants to express his regret because of the sin that a lot of social giving these words now when you feel that in your heart worried about your sins alarm so he'll be vanilla enables you to make this diet. Begin by saying opener. Remember loss compassion and mercy when you say the word or benefit, then the words were of Adam alayhis salaam he said vadhana fusina we wronged ourselves, we oppressed ourselves. That's right. When you're making a tober blame yourself, no one bought yourself, blame yourself.

00:20:47--> 00:21:29

You're the one that fell into the into into the wrong. You're the one that committed the sin. Don't blame don't justify the sin. Don't blame anyone blame yourself of all I'm now in full Senate and this with the word volume now for senate when you're blaming yourself, when you are seeing and acknowledging our law, I wrote myself, this humbles the servant. It humbles you before a lot of social and one of the conditions of an accepted Toba instead of person humbles himself before a loss of anodyne and acknowledges his weakness and acknowledges his sins. Say it before a loss origin senior law, I acknowledged my sin, I acknowledge it I am weak. I fell into the sin. That was because

00:21:29--> 00:21:57

I was weak and I was tempted and and my desire overpowered me and I fell into it all up so panic you all priests belongs to you. You're the Almighty, the old perfect and I remain asleep and a servant of yours. Fallen nanfu Center. We're in the middle of Atlanta. What are Hamner lenor coonan Amina, ha serene and if you do not forgive us, look at this. Look at this humility of Adam alayhis salam in his

00:21:58--> 00:22:40

outfit, land and water, Hamlet and all law if you do not forgive us, and if you do not bestow Your mercy upon us, surely Lennar? coonan Amina ha Siri, we are going to be from among the losers. Allahu Akbar can eat that that's that's a given you're a loser. If Allah subhanho wa Taala does not accept your Toba and forgive you. Just like in the vsam Allahu alayhi wa sallam cursed such a person that witnesses the entire month of Ramadan at the end he is not forgiven for. So this is the total that we're supposed to be making. And the power of a Toba is that he earns a person complete forgiveness of his sins and brings him closer to a loss of pleasure, brings him closer to Allah subhanho wa

00:22:40--> 00:23:22

Taala his love gives him that kind of tranquility and peace and contentment and satisfaction in his heart. And every single time you need to refresh the Stober. Even after Ramadan you make a Toba and these in these to come in your life. You continue to make it over and maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam he advises us and he encourages us, he says to in a law stone for long make it over to a law for India to be in a law or in another Hadith, a stone feudal law at thirimanne Sabina mala, that in one day in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam seeks a last forgiveness more than 70 times and in another generation more than 100 times. And this is who this is all a loss of a law Holly yourself.

00:23:22--> 00:24:05

So my brothers and sisters in Islam, you need to learn that trauma bond is teaching you and I the importance of October and October is a way of life and the only way back to the paradise. The only way back to a lot of soldiers happiness and pleasure is to make Toba and begin to add heat to the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala as best as you can, and to keep away from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala prohibited Bismillah Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts us and be even Allah We ask Allah Zoysia that he gives us the ability that he gives us the ability to make us and see Toba in the explicit month of Ramadan and to accept Ramadan and all our worship promise and to forgive our
