in Vietnam, and he mammy Rupa Mahi Mahalo to Allah mentions in some of his works, the issue of the concept and the issue and the concept of the weight of sin, the burden some of the burden, nature and the heaviness of sin. And that is a reality that each and every single one of us knows deep within the recesses of our own hearts, that when we sin and we disobey Allah subhanaw taala within our hearts, there is a weight that is attached to that sin, an act of disobedience. That weight makes it more difficult for us then to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is a weight that saps from us the energy of our Eman. It is a weight that encourages us then from sin, to increase in sin.

00:01:46--> 00:02:26

And to perform and commit a sin after another sin is the same weight and hardness and difficulty that we bear then, when it comes to performing acts of worship, when we don't feel sure, when we don't feel that rise of a man. When we don't feel like that we've benefited from the acts of worship that we do perform when we perform them. That is the weight of sin that is attached to disobedience and Allah subhana wa Tada. And just as with physical injuries, and the person can't stand or a personal concept or a personal karmic record, or sujood physical injuries over time, they take a toll on our bodies. And unless we take treatment and correct treatment, that small injury or maybe a

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

small injury becomes a very big injury, a long lasting injury, a bigger issue than how we began. And likewise with the issue of sin. When we sin and we disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. It is something which closes our hearts to become hardened. A case takes us further away from Allah zildjian from the benefits that we should be taking from that to worship that we do perform. It takes from us the blessing of a man that Allah azza wa jal has placed within our hearts. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran that from the reasons for which the people of the fire will enter into the fire is that their hearts were engulfed, sealed off, their hearts were covered because of the sins that they

00:03:06--> 00:03:28

committed. caliber Ronna Allah looby McCann we axemen rather it was because of the sins that they committed that their hearts will seal their hearts were covered, and their sins were the cover of their hearts. And because of those sins, and the covering of their hearts, they weren't able to come closer to Allah azza wa jal or to worship Him, or to gain enough good deeds to earn his mercy subhanho wa Taala

00:03:29--> 00:03:48

our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained this concept in the hadith of Omaha. rhodiola who uncollectible remember tell me the name is Jeremiah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the lab that you attend. Located for you call me he knocked on soda for either who another hour tab I was talking for a superior elbow when others either

00:03:50--> 00:04:31

will or Ron will lead the the Corolla was a virgin killer maronna Allah Pallavi McCann we'll see one. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when a person commits a sin, so when we don't pray, when we don't give zakah when we lie, we cheat we back by whatever that sin may be a black.is placed within the heart. So if a person stops that sin they turn to Allah they make Toba the escolares diligently for his forgiveness, the heart is purified when I die. But if that person continues, or they return to that sin or another sin, that dot increases in size, and it increases until it becomes uncovers the whole heart that is around that alarm. zildjian mentions in the Quran killer

00:04:31--> 00:04:54

maronna Allah palabra him mcenery axemen ra there is the covering of the sin upon their hearts because of what they used to do what they used to accomplish. That is the aspect of sin. It is that weight of sin that makes it difficult and hassle mostly Rahim Allah Allah said in the Tafseer of this verse, he said, who will then bow but other than what?

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

It is sin upon sin until the heart becomes blind or

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Till you aren't able to receive

00:05:03--> 00:05:20

goodness or Eman until you can benefit from acts of worship that Allah subhanaw taala has prescribed for us just so our hearts will be consulted. In another Hadith the Hadith of the Prophet the Allah one in Sahih Muslim, the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told fit on

00:05:21--> 00:06:03

the road and Ruda trials will come upon the heart of a person, just as the twigs or the street rows of a mat are gathered together. In real time, Rahim Allah tala says the Phaeton the trials that we are susceptible to are of two kinds. The first is that which attacks our Eman that which attacks our either our belief in Allah we have doubts in a large village and we have doubts on Yom Okayama. We have doubts about the Quran, or about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or different aspects of the Sharia. There is a trial that a large villager places before us and the second type is the trial of our desires, the trial of being succumbing to drugs or alcohol or gambling or interest or

00:06:03--> 00:06:29

whatever it may be. Those two trials, they come upon us like twigs, branches, street roll, or reads of straw. Each one of them by themselves is only a twig, one twig easily, you can snap it easily, you can discard it easily you can overlook it. But once you have a number of twigs together, and those twigs increase in size, they become a bonfire. That is how

00:06:30--> 00:07:16

it sins cast a wait upon our hearts. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for your Palomino Sheba, Nikita, twin Nikita v he looked at him so that Nikita Appleby looked at him so that whosoever succumbs to some of those Fitton, those trials, a black.is placed within their heart blacktopped Wayne and Kara How were you calling me I'm Kara Lupita de looked at one by Oba and whichever heart is able to withstand and reject that fitna that trial, that temptation of sin, that alarm Sojin places, a white.in the heart factor to Sarah Palin, until there are only two types of hearts that you will find amongst people. Allah Abdul Allah, Allah abbiamo mytho Safa ferrata the role of fitna

00:07:16--> 00:07:54

to mme It is similar to what the first heart is one that is white and pure. No trial will ever harm it so long as the heavens and the earth continue to stand. There is a heart that knows how to protect itself. It is a heart that knows that even when it seems and succumbs to sin, the weight and burden of sin is so difficult upon it, that the heart and that person is the one who turns back to Allah zildjian in tober, is still far. That's the heart that knows that they need to keep the heart soft by reading the Quran and making Vicar of a large soldier and attending the salah and seeking knowledge and so on and so forth. That's the first heart Well, our heart has to do more Bandon Kuzey

00:07:55--> 00:08:36

moja. Here, he said in us for the other heart. It is dark and dusty and black. And it is like an upturned vessel. Dark and encrusted with that because they won't achieve anything good an uptrend vessel because no goodness or a man can stay within it. Just as a cup of water if you obtain it, no water will stay within it. That is the second type of heart. Now you're already forming a rufen what are you in kuromon khara he knows no god no can do reject any evil in them. I wish Lieberman Hawa except for the for the desires that it comes to. Those are the two types of people that our Prophet told us that Allahu alayhi wa sallam about that weight of sin. That all of us experience that all of

00:08:36--> 00:09:11

us have within our hearts is not something which we can see with the naked eye. But it is something which we experience. And when you experience within yourself that lack of enthusiasm and motivation to worship Allah to do acts of good deeds, you find it difficult to pick up the Quran, you find it difficult to pray, you find it difficult to give sadaqa you find it difficult to do any good deed, and you don't know and there's no reason for it except that deep heaviness within your heart. That is because of the sins that we have accumulated. And unless we're conscious of the fact and were wise to it, it will become such a state that it covers the heart and it's difficult then, for it

00:09:11--> 00:09:29

receive any guidance from Allah azza wa jal purify our hearts May Allah azza wa jal forgive our sins MLR xojo increases in demand barakallahu li we're looking through colonial sooner.

smilo hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. maridadi he was talking to gauge Marina merbau.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

When we look at the example of our profits on a low while he will sell them we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would work within his daily routine acts of worship and things that he would do that would keep his heart soft. And the companions of the Allahu animage Marine they learned that lesson.

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

They took that from the prophets of Allah where it was send them. The prophets of Allah while he was seldom used to do a number of things that he would build in within his daily routine, that if we were to do not only do they take away that, that weight of sin, that heaviness within the heart, but they extinguish those sins. And a large soldier tells us that when we make Tobin we tend to a large xojo. Not only does Allah subhanaw taala remove the sin, He changes them into good deeds in them and turbo M and RM and our formula I'm alongside for Allah. Allah who said he had him as an act, except for those who repent and they believe and they do righteous deeds, that a large soldier will turn

00:10:39--> 00:11:16

for them. For them the evil deeds into good deeds, he turns what is an evil action into the reward of good deeds. subhanho wa Taala by His mercy, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam will do three things regularly, each and every single day. The first of them is the recitation of the Quran, reciting the Quran understanding what it is that you're reciting, reciting it often is something which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would do on a daily basis. He would read it himself, he will listen to its recitation from others, and he would study at sallallahu wasallam. Mr. buzzworthy, Allahu anhu only describes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the blessed month

00:11:16--> 00:11:51

of Ramadan. He links the generosity of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, to a study of the canal with Jubilee that he said, and he makes a link between the two. And there is not a link that he makes idling. But it is the link that he makes, because he understands rhodiola and the connection between those two points. The second thing was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would build into his daily routine that his tongue would be moist with is the remembrance of Allah from saying, Subhana Allah to Al Hamdulillah, to praising Allah, to making this still far to turn into a large religion. All of that was something which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would

00:11:51--> 00:12:27

do and we've all had a hadith of how many times he would say stuff with alone a single sitting or a single day, because those small deeds that we are sometimes and susceptible to sometimes they come upon us without realizing one of the greatest ways to remove them is by keeping your tongue moist with the remembrance of a large zildjian. And number three, is the call that he would make the prescribed of car of the morning and the evening and after the congregational prayers, the solo act, and he would enter his house or leave his house or enter the masjid or leave the masjid sallallahu alayhi wasallam those cards are there to protect you, and to give you the type of shield against

00:12:27--> 00:13:04

shapen and against the trials, and the tests and the temptations that are in this dunya we realize the weight of sin within our hearts and we understand what it is that makes it difficult for us the barrier between us and between Allah subhanaw taala then it becomes easier for us to deal with that barrier and to overcome the weight of the sins that we have accumulated as Allah subhanaw taala is Most Beautiful Names and lovely attributes that allow us to forgive our sins, and that Allah subhanaw taala increases our Eman not Allah azza wa jal removes from us the darkness of sin and the weight and its burden from our hearts as Allah subhanaw taala that he shows his forgiveness, His
