But I will say we need to make sure that when this happens, that we go out, and we protest, because after that we go, and we march, and that people see the presence of the Muslims. Others, they will say, we need to make sure that we spread awareness amongst our communities that we spread awareness on social media, that we do this or that we do that, for, they'll say that we need to donate money, we need to support this. And we need to support that.

00:00:29--> 00:00:36

Lots of different suggestions that you have all heard lots of different types, I wanted to

00:00:37--> 00:00:43

bring it back a little bit, and mention an equation that is defined for us.

00:00:45--> 00:00:52

And it is an equation that we must always place in front of our eyes, because this equation

00:00:53--> 00:01:14

is superior to everything that I've mentioned. And in fact, everything that I've mentioned, if this equation is not put into it, if this equation is not factored in, if this equation is not thought of with regards to everything that I've mentioned, then it will fail. And none of it will work.

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

And the equation is very simple. Eliza says,

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

law fell out.

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

From under law, the

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

failure to occur in

00:01:30--> 00:01:36

a law says, If Allah were to support you, then who will overpower you.

00:01:37--> 00:02:24

And if Allah or to forsake you, then who will support you after him and upon Allah let the believers rely. You see how important this is? When you go to a protest, and you see that people are going there and their hearts are attached to the numbers of the individuals that are there. Not only that, that even in the protest, they will be doing things that undoubtably are things that allies so does not love. Then who is their audience? And whose support are they more concerned with acquiring the Muslim should always always always be most concerned with acquiring the support of a lot the progress of the ladies and obsesses into avian Ibis in the famous ID he says, Why the men not human.

00:03:30--> 00:03:31


00:03:32--> 00:03:37

I know sounds very basic. But we are in need of the basics.

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

Because none of you know Metatron serial killer, you never know when the forgiveness from Allah azza wa jal will descend people they think that it's still fall, you're making stuff up that you are, you know you're doing something, but the benefit of it is in the

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

that's the benefit of the far right. I'm making this stuff for now. So that a child on the Day of Judgment, I will be able to reap the benefit of it.

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

I'll find that I had this ID and that sin and this sin and that sin, maybe a mountain of sins, but I also come with this stuff up and so on the Day of Judgment, that is the Father will benefit me.

00:05:10--> 00:05:29

But that is the only time that is defined benefits. It still changes the trajectory of your life. This life, the one that you are living is too far changes the trajectory of that life. A man came to the hustle and bustle, and he said, my crops aren't growing. There's no rain.

A third person comes to an hessen. And he says to him, I can't have children. My wife and I, we haven't been able to conceive. Guess what it hasn't said to him?

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


00:06:05--> 00:06:10

now people are witnessing all three of these. They're like, What just happened?

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

00:06:36--> 00:06:51

I said, See forgiveness from my lord from your Lord. You know, kind of a follow up system on equal medardo indeed can be unguided Wolverine, which I love internet in which I know at a certain stage people I said to them, seek forgiveness from your Lord, what will happen?

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

He will

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

use off forgiving first of all Second, you see,

00:06:59--> 00:07:07

he will make the rain pour down upon you. I tell my brothers sisters in California, they have a drought, they've got a very severe drought and like that you guys make this stuff out there.

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

You guys need to make this a father because there's a lot of citizens in California. Right? There's a lot to be made as default for

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

Hollywood is

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

guiding the whole world, right?

00:07:21--> 00:07:22


00:07:23--> 00:07:28

this is gonna be a minute, Binney will provide free wealth and will provide for your children

00:07:31--> 00:07:38

regardless and will make for you rivers. And then he says, Morocco. Last June, any law?

00:07:39--> 00:08:08

Why is it that you don't give a lot is due right? Why is it that when you need a job, you're so quick to go and ask 15 brothers 15 sisters, you're able to go and walk and ask this Mom and Dad Mom and you're able to as his brother, Hey, can you let me know if you if you got any jobs available, you're willing to go and spend hours and hours and hours on LinkedIn and and this website and that website, that you're able to go and try to network here and go to this

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

staffing agency there and you're able to go to do all of that work

00:08:15--> 00:08:24

with yourself for a minute and seek a loss forgiveness, sit with yourself for a minute, and pray to Allah azza wa jal, because we say that we believe

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

that if Allah as we just says Be, it will happen, and for why as we did does not write it, that it is never going to happen.

00:08:38--> 00:08:57

That's what we believe. You know, the scholars, they say something very interesting with regards to the headphones, the province on the light is and that says that a lot as we get descends in the last third of every night. And he says three things who is seeking forgiveness for me that I may accept His forgiveness and who has repented to me that I may accept his repentance and who is asking of me that I may graduate he wishes.

00:08:58--> 00:09:14

And that is every single night. The scholars they said, Whoever says, you know, this hadith is narrated by over 40 companions, over 40 so many people, what does that mean? When over 40 companions? narrator Heidi, what do you think that means?

00:09:16--> 00:09:25

Of course, oh, it's authentic, right, because all of the chains are, but when over 40 companions narrate something, how many times in the process that I must have mentioned this?

00:09:26--> 00:09:38

So many times, he's constantly telling them told them so many times to do this, to do this, that a lot depends on the last third of every night. What is he wants from them? What is he encouraging them to do?

00:09:42--> 00:09:46

He's encouraging them to do what to be asleep at 430 in the morning,

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

to wake up, right, be awake at that point in time, because there's so much goodness happening. And so the scholars they said that whoever says that he wants something ever said

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

He wants something, but cannot wake up in the early morning to ask it from Allah, then that must mean that they don't really want it.

00:10:11--> 00:10:26

That must mean that they don't really want it all of us, every single one of us has once every single one of us has things that we desire, we have goals that we want to accomplish, we have things that we would like to protect ourselves from, we have all of these moon, we have all of these concerts.

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

Scotland say Wake up,

00:10:30--> 00:10:54

wake up at 430 wake up a little bit before if at this time, and sit with yourself and ask a lot. For all of these things, man, a lot of June a valuable part of why is it that you don't recognize that you don't give a lot is just the amount that you don't give a lot is just to do. So it's not only benefits you in the athalon, but it still far will change your life will change your life.

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

The third or the second

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

when we look at the promise of Eliason

00:11:03--> 00:11:10

and his constant is still fun. So half of the line, they said that we would sit in a gathering with the Prophet, so the ladies

00:11:11--> 00:11:19

and in his silences, we would count his his dead father, when he's not talking, he's saying a soft, soft stop.

00:11:21--> 00:11:25

They said we would count in one gathering that he would make us to fall over 100 times

00:11:26--> 00:11:37

in one gathering the progress of the lightest, and then he said to the people, repent to Allah, because I repent to a lot in one day over 70 times.

00:11:39--> 00:11:47

So if that's the case with the prophets of the lightest send them and Allah has already told him that his sins are forgiven, then what about you and nine

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

is too far is

00:11:50--> 00:12:10

something that we don't only do for sins. This is also something that's very beautiful. You know, a lot of times people they think of icfr that is too far something that you do for sins, I don't need to do it throughout the day. I do it after i sin. So when I sin, and I remember that I seek Allah's forgiveness for it.

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

But when you look at the shediac something very interesting.

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

What did you say right after you prayed, they should just know.

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

He said stuff, a lot of stuff and a lot of stuff. He said it's too far three times Oh, you just pray. You just didn't want to have the greatest robot that you can do you prayed

00:12:30--> 00:12:46

one of the five daily prayers, which is one of the most beloved actions that you can do for Allah azza wa jal period. And you prayed it on time, and you created in the house from the houses of Allah, what do you seek the lowest forgiveness for? greater than that these projects that we just welcome back?

00:12:47--> 00:13:33

Few months ago, they went in, they spent 1000s of dollars. And they some of them rest of their lives. They risk disease, they risk difficulty, great amounts of difficult. And they traveled and they they gave up money at work because they took vacation time and did all of these things, so that they could go and fulfill the obligation of Hajj. And they were patient, and they struggle. And they strived and they stood on the mountain of alpha and they cried out to a lie surgeon with sincerity that they never were able to muster before in their lives. And allies so it didn't post it to the angels about them. And even then, allies it just says some field woman highfather ness, or stuffed

00:13:33--> 00:13:33


00:13:35--> 00:13:40

Allah tells them that when they leave the mountain of artifact and they leave that moment

00:13:41--> 00:13:53

in which they are hoping that all of their sins have been forgiven. alized tells them then go forth from where the people have gone forth and seek a loss forgiveness. Why are these people seeking the lust forgiveness?

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

Why are the pilgrims on such a blessing days even the last forgiveness

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

Not only that,

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

but after the greatest act of worship that was ever presented by any human being from the children of Adam.

00:14:12--> 00:14:19

The messenger ship of Rasulullah some bodies and the progress of the lightest Adam's messenger ship.

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

Allah says at its conclusion

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

either Java

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

eight and NASA v nine fuerza

00:14:33--> 00:14:38

Rebecca Westerfield in Canada, Ottawa so just as you know,

00:14:41--> 00:14:57

the the elders have they complained to Roma or they just asked him they said Why did you put up the lead now bus in our gatherings when we have children where it is Ah, my boss was in his late 20s, early 30s and Milan would

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

have even abandoned

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

In the inner circle of the elder Sahaba. So some of the Sahaba they said, you know, we have children that are his age, why is it that you bring him in? So I wanted to show them? What are the Allied who so he said to them, what do you guys say about that, Jonathan?

00:15:17--> 00:15:18

One by one, he starts asking them.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

One of them says

00:15:22--> 00:15:48

the progress of the lightest ended up is being told by a lot, that when the conquest of Makkah happens that he should seek Allah's forgiveness and have you know, when the people have entered into ceramic groups that he should seek a loss forgiveness and that he should repent to him. Next person says pretty much the same thing. The next person says pretty much the same thing. He said, finally gets solved. 11 advisor says i'd love What do you say even our best? What do you say about this first? Maybe I'm biased, as I see that this is the obituary of the province of

00:15:50--> 00:16:17

the province of Alberta sentiments being told that your lifespan is coming to an end. Why? He says because at the end of all of our acts of worship, we are commanded to seek Allah's forgiveness. And so the messenger ship of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is coming to a close, he's being told to ask a loss, forgiveness. And if the messenger ship of the prophecy is finished, then the lifespan of the prophets of the light is 20 as well. And that's why he's here.

00:16:19--> 00:16:31

That's why he's here. What's the relationship? Why do we seek Allah's forgiveness after we do good deeds? We seek Allah's forgiveness even after we do good deeds not just only do sins, because there is a prayer that you just prayed?

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

Was it what a lie is it it is deserving of?

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

Yes or No, of course, no.

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

Few minutes of seeing

00:16:43--> 00:16:49

half the time or thinking about where you parked your car. What happened with that, even if you had a good focus prayer, some of the lies

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

that have said she just paid with some, a little bit of office, a little bit of soap, a little bit of problems, there's a little bit of impurity in your wealth.

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

That's what a lot of students deserve. Even if you were to do it as best as you can.

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

Is it perfect?

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

And so we do these quarterbacks, and we seek a lot as Odette's forgiveness for our human deficiency in them.

00:17:17--> 00:17:37

Recognizing that we none of us will enter gender, none of us are under gender due to our deeds. It is due to the grace of Allah azza wa jal, the mercy of Allah has revealed that he overlooks our deficiency, that he overlooks our deficiency. And so we seek Allah hazardous forgiveness even for our good deeds, let alone ourselves.

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

Third is that we

00:17:42--> 00:17:43

remind ourselves

00:17:44--> 00:18:12

that a person should never despair, from the mercy of Allah. And this is a great message that needs to be communicated constantly. There are so many people that are living on this earth. And they feel that what they have done has put them in a place where they are no longer saveable. So they are not deserving of mercy. They feel that there have been people who have committed such evil that they are no longer I remember, I met a brother

00:18:14--> 00:18:14

who came to the midst.

00:18:16--> 00:18:25

This person was a, it was an Adam Smith. So he came to the masjid. And he sat across from me at a desk, and he had questions for me.

00:18:26--> 00:19:04

And it wasn't two questions in until I realized that this person had gone to one of those answering Islam websites, and pulled up every question that they have every every they have about this stuff. And he was just reading them off to me and list. And every time he would ask me a question, I would answer it as best as I could. And then he would give me a poker face. He wouldn't. He wouldn't say yes. Okay, that makes sense. He wouldn't say I understand you wouldn't smile, nothing to indicate that he was accepting what I was saying at all zero. You just go on to the next one. Go on to the next one. And I'm just answering. So he asked me about apostasy. He asked me about the promises that

00:19:04--> 00:19:21

America is Yeah, he asked me about that Jews. He asked me about everything. And I'm just going and going and going and then at the end, final question. What's the final question? He says? Is it true, that accepting Islam, forgives all of your sins.

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

And as soon as he said that,

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

the person who's in front of me looked completely different.

00:19:30--> 00:19:42

I no longer saw some person with like a stern face is coming to maybe debate or something like that. I saw a person who is weighted down by a lifetime of sins.

00:19:43--> 00:19:52

He is burdened by a lifetime of mistakes. That's what the human experiences. We make a lot of mistakes.

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

Some of them are intentional. Some of them are not. Many of them are stupid. Many of them are consequences of our environment.

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

Many of them are because of our own human deficiencies, our greed or lust, our passion, all of them, all of that plays a part. And this person is living carrying all of these things. And so in that moment, I recognize the Hikmah, that when a person accepts these snom, that this is their reward.

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

And if there was any sort of monetary compensation for accepting a set up, it would not be as great as the reward of the forgiveness of sins. And it reminded me that I'm gonna be lost when he extended his hand to give back to the messengers of Allah to set it up. He pulled his hand back. And he said, on a conditional messenger of Allah, he said, What's your condition? He said, My condition is that a lot of different gifts, all of my sense.

00:20:48--> 00:21:15

He says he didn't, you know, Mama, erases everything that came between it, there is no reward that is more perfect for the person who's entering into Islam than that their sins to be forgiven. And so this imagine a person who does not know who Allah is, they're spending their entire lives. And they don't know that a lot as we did this forgiving, one of the greatest blessings that we have as the Muslim Ummah, we are the

00:21:17--> 00:21:48

We Are The home of praise. And we are the result of praise because we are the ones who praise a lot the most, but also because we are the ones who know the most about a lot. And so we know of a lot as we just praiseworthy attributes. One of my my teachers was you he had a class on Ms. Smell was different. And one of the people who used to attend his class on under smell was the fact of a lot. So Jen was a youth minister from a Christian church. He used to come and attend the class every week. And he said,

00:21:49--> 00:22:01

I never heard a lot I never heard God described in the way that you are describing him. If you were to ask any average, Christian, ask anyone you would ask them, describe God.

00:22:03--> 00:22:03

Describe it.

00:22:04--> 00:22:24

They would say he's loving, it would say he's merciful. Maybe they would say he's this or that. But they're rattling off things that are just, you know, just out there. You ask any Muslim kid, they don't need to know much. But you ask them describe a lot. To me. All he has to say, is Allah He said, marriage is a setup.

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

To consider value and value.

00:22:29--> 00:23:05

All of these names denote to us who Allah has really is. All of these names, carry attributes, all of these names. Tell us describe to us who is the one that we worship. And this is an incredible blessing that we need to be grateful for. That you know, who allies we did is that you know that when you commit a sin that Allah is Allah for Allah. He is the one who is forgiving. He is the one who is the Most Merciful. He is not right man. He is the one who is filled with mercy, that no matter what it is that you do in this life, that if you turn to Allah, in repentance

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

that Allah has will forgive you.

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

The man kills 99 people.

00:23:13--> 00:23:19

Because 90 is people who does that 99 people. And then he says, hell even Toba.

00:23:21--> 00:23:38

You wanted to repent to Allied soldiers. And so he goes to a Abbot goes to a worshipper, good brother. And he asks him, I've killed 99 people, is there a way for lots of forgiving and he says, You killed 99, I don't see any way for you to be forgiving.

00:23:41--> 00:23:53

So he kills him. And he just shows you how easy killing is for this person. Now you give him an answer that he doesn't like he kills you. So he killed that guy. And he turned it into 100. Then he goes to a scholar, he goes to a person who knows a lot.

00:23:55--> 00:23:59

And he says to him, I've killed 100. Is there a repentance for me?

00:24:00--> 00:24:05

This isn't who can there's not between you and the mercy of Allah. Ooh.

00:24:06--> 00:24:16

But your people are people of evil. And so he tells him what to do. But he has to go and leave that environment. He has to go to another place, and be amongst people who will help him worship alive.

00:24:17--> 00:24:59

This man then goes, and he begins to walk in that direction. He takes practical steps. He is sincere in his repentance. He's not somebody who just says, I want to be forgiven. Allah forgive me as I do. And I put myself in the exact same position to continue doing that sin. No, he goes, and he is migrating to allies origin and in the way he passes away. And the profit some of it is and it tells us that he passes away at the halfway mark. And so the angels of mercy descended, and the angels of punishment descend, and they debate over him. The angels of mercy say this person has killed 100 souls. He belongs to us. The angels of mercy, this person

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

was walking towards the forgiveness of Allah,

00:25:03--> 00:25:09

this person was changed, this person was migrating to Allah, He belongs to us.

00:25:11--> 00:25:17

And so they say, we are going to measure the distance, if he is closer to his origin,

00:25:18--> 00:25:25

that he belongs to the angels of punishment. If he is closer to his destination, that he belongs to the angels of mercy,

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

he ended up being closer to

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

his place of origin, he belonged to the angels of punishment.

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

That is where he died closer to.

00:25:39--> 00:25:42

And so as long as we did cause for the ground to shift

00:25:43--> 00:26:15

a lot, so did cause for the ground to shift so that his body would be closer to his destination. And the angels of mercy took a look at what a lie is. Okay, we'll do I need a walk across the passageway closer to this destination. But what is the lesson here? The lesson is that if you take a step towards a law, a law will do what it will take multiple steps to you. If you walk to a local monastery, they will raise to you if you die on the path to Allah as the origin. Journey to a lot of liberal causes the ground to shift.

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

So that you can be with whom you love.

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

This is who we worship. This is how a lot of it is we need to communicate that to people. But she'll

00:26:27--> 00:26:37

have your 010 the province of alliance that says give people glad tidings, don't give them tidings of that will repel them.

00:26:38--> 00:26:49

You're always burdening them, give them glad tidings, yes to what will make things easy, and don't make them difficult. We're living in a society where people, they really Muslims, I know, one,

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

when she was telling us that he went to an Islamic school. And he asked them, How many of you feel that a lot as a deal is accurate.

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

He said, the majority of the kids, they all raise their hands. They feel that a lot

00:27:03--> 00:27:09

of these are kids who are 12 1314 years old. They feel that what maybe their parents are angry with them.

00:27:11--> 00:27:46

But they shouldn't understand that they are somehow in a position where a lot is consistently angry with them. That is the wrong message is being communicated to these children that they should know who a lot is, they should know that if they raise their hands and ask Eliza to forgive, you will be forgiven with sincerity I'm not talking about. And this is a disclaimer here too. I don't want you to get from this message. That That just means that a person just does whatever they want them. They say stuff, what a lot of stuff a lot of stuff in the law, that their sins are forgiven. No, the people who do that I have never thought about the line who said the artist default is in need of a

00:27:46--> 00:28:15

Stefan. We need to seek a loss forgiveness for the way that we seek a largest forgiveness, a person has a saying of something less than committing a sin. And he has one more here everything is ready to commit this in the next time again, a person has eaten the wealth of this person who has taken the inheritance of this person and has done all of these things. And he's sitting after selecting them stuff for a while. So now give these people back their rights. If you're really worried about allies or just forgiveness, then give people back their rights. Don't take the rights of people and just sit there and say

00:28:16--> 00:28:39

no, give people back what they are deserving of. That person will be a person who is forgiving, was repentant to Allah and whoever repents to Allah, Allah is able to accept their repentance. This person is a killer of 99. He didn't just say stuff for laughter, killing 99. He took practical steps to change the situation. And so a lot as you recognize the sincerity in heaven. Okay. So

00:28:40--> 00:28:54

teaching people to never ever despair from the mercy of Allah as origin, and that when they commit sins, that they are in a position to be forgiven, if they are sincere. There are a couple of examples that I want to mention in the

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

first example

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

is an example of

00:29:07--> 00:29:08


00:29:10--> 00:29:16

is a very blessing individual. He died at a relatively young age

00:29:18--> 00:29:21

30 Some say he lived till 40. But no one says more than that.

00:29:22--> 00:29:29

And yet, there's an indication that he was of the most sincere of people.

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

When a person is sincere, a lot of inputs but again, their efforts, they do something, and a lot as we use gives them tofield he gives them to faith in what they write what they do, and he gives them tofield with regards to the people's acceptance regarding it. So for example, a man came to the memory. And he said to him that another man had written and whatnot. In mathematics, famous book, he calls it a lot, but another man comes and he writes the same title and what I'm writing and what

00:30:00--> 00:30:01


00:30:02--> 00:30:06

So my Maverick a person comes to him and he says Tim, another person wrote a motto.

00:30:08--> 00:30:10

Say, ma'am, it says, mechanically many have

00:30:11--> 00:30:19

said whatever is done that is for Allah. That is what's going to remain. And so you see the motto of America that remained

00:30:20--> 00:30:34

a mama No, Mama scholars, they say he is it seems that he's one of the most sincere of the people because everything that he did turn into gold. Everything that he did, there are many people who wrote the 40 Paddy, a book called before you had you in many different fields, many different categories.

00:30:35--> 00:31:12

And no weak references that in his introduction to his work, he says there are people who wrote 40 books for 48 hours this with regards to that. But I wanted to write 40 Hadeeth regards to all of this. That was it that in and of itself, it still feels to have the idea to do that. And then to select the Heidi thing, so that's that's still field, and then for the entire month, except that collection, so that it's hardly There's hardly a mystery. That doesn't happen. There's hardly a house of a Muslim that doesn't have it that is also filled from a miser ship. So many people wrote books on Alaska. Mm hmm. No, he writes a book on Alaska and it becomes a staple with regards to that

00:31:12--> 00:31:43

topic. So many people wrote commentaries on Muslim Imam and no, he writes a commentary on Muslim it becomes this staple, it becomes the reference, whether regardless, like Emma said, so many people wrote books on collections of a Heidi, he writes a collection of Hadees. And he calls it almost slotted aid, and every message it has, what is the secret of this individual that everything that he does is so widely accepted by the oma not just one group from the oma not just one sect from the oma but the oma. So

00:31:45--> 00:31:53

that is indicative of insincerity. But one of the things that I really appreciate about his books is that you'll find that the last chapter

00:31:54--> 00:32:02

of every book that he writes, is the chapter of his default. That's the final chapter. So when you look at his book,

00:32:03--> 00:32:11

he has all of these accounts throughout the book. And the last chapter is the chapter of Mr. Fogg. When you look at his real solid,

00:32:12--> 00:32:23

you find that the first book is the book of sincerity, and the last book is the book of his default. When you look at his 40 Hadith, same formula, first Hadith is the Hadith,

00:32:24--> 00:32:30

about sincerity. And the last hiding is a very beautiful hiding, hiding from us,

00:32:31--> 00:32:40

in a theremin, and as for the alarm narrowings of the purpose of a lady send them he says, from what he narrates, from his Lord, listen to this hiding

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


00:32:43--> 00:32:51

in mega mega ohtani, Allah Jo 21st, two lakh IRA macadam, income, whatever

00:32:52--> 00:33:04

losses, oh, son of neither, as long as you call upon me, and have hope in me, I will forgive you, no matter what you have done, and I will not mind

00:33:06--> 00:33:09

some people, they'll forgive you.

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

But they will mind

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

they'll forgive you, but keep your face away from me. I forgive you, but don't talk to me again. I forgive you, but our relationship will never be the same again. A lot. So yes, I will forgive you. And I will not.

00:33:25--> 00:33:35

Ya know, Bella, Luca Anna sama. 2007 a bagger. If your sins were to reach the sky,

00:33:36--> 00:33:42

and then you sought forgiveness from me, I will forgive you. Yeah.

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

No Anika Titi.

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

For meditating, Elijah Sheila

00:33:52--> 00:33:57

says, if you were to come to me with the Earth's Wait, incidence,

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

and then you met me on the Day of Judgment, not having committed * with me,

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

I will meet you what is equal to that of forgiveness?

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

Ooh, that would ever despair.

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

From being in a position where they can acquire the mercy of allies.

00:34:20--> 00:35:00

We should never do that. We should consistently seek a loss forgiveness. We should work hard to correct ourselves to repent to Allah so that we change our circumstances. Because part of despair from the mercy of Allah is to despair that a law surgeon can correct you to despair that a lot has changed. You are successful, but I can't give you this up. I just can't. I'm addicted to this. I've been doing this for 30 years. I've been doing it for 25 years. I can't change I've been doing this for four years. I've been doing this for 10 years for five years I can't change that in and of itself is a type of despair from the mercy of a lot because a lot so is it can change a lot.

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

I can correct you, a law surgeon can lift you. But you need to take steps towards a law. You need to take some sources of law. I conclude with a

00:35:13--> 00:35:14


00:35:15--> 00:35:23

that I love dearly by a poet whose name was Abu Nos. and when I was a, it wasn't a righteous man.

00:35:25--> 00:35:31

It wasn't a righteous man. I mean that he was a he was famous for his verses of on alcohol and wine.

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

But he was a Muslim.

00:35:35--> 00:35:37

He was a Muslim. And he

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

was said that he was seen in a dream after he had passed away.

00:35:42--> 00:36:01

And they had asked him what did your Lord do with you? He said, I was forgiven due to some verses that I had written, and I had placed under my pillow. And the verses are very well known. He says all in a moment, the newbie kathrada forgotten him to be an Africa.

00:36:02--> 00:36:10

Oh my Lord, if my sins are great, because of their number, I know that your forgiveness is greater

00:36:15--> 00:36:22

hammer. Oh, my lord Kyle, I call upon you in subjugation in humility, if you were to reject my hand, who's going to have mercy on me?

00:36:24--> 00:36:45

And kind of nail juca in numbers, you know, for men familiar to see if no one can have hope in you except for the good guys. The brothers here martial law sisters here relish in the mystery. They're the only ones who cannot open a lot. And who can the criminal The one who spent their entire life screwing up and messing up? Who can they have hope?

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

man he was he was unlucky.

00:36:49--> 00:36:53

Would you be rough from a Muslim, I have no path to you

00:36:54--> 00:36:58

have no way to you, except through your hope,

00:37:00--> 00:37:03

your beautiful forgiveness, and the fact that I am.

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

And he knew who he was at the end of the day.

00:37:09--> 00:37:09

He knew

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

he knew his relationship with.

00:37:14--> 00:37:58

And we hope that Eliza did forgive him due to that and that he forgives us the conclusion, I just want to sum up the points that I've mentioned. And that is that is too far needs to become our constant companion in this life because it will change our condition and that we should be more concerned with how Allah region views us than anything else. And we should be more concerned that a lot as we have supports us in our lives and in our communities and as an omen than anything else. And it's default does not mean that you simply say a stuff for loss, stop loss stuff in the low upcoming sense. But it still means that a person strives to change what is wrong in their lives and

00:37:58--> 00:38:29

to rectify it, having trust that Allah is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy and that he will facilitate and that he will assist them in changing their lives if they take steps that are closer to them. And that we seek through that the sin of the messenger sallallahu to send them in his constant seeking of forgiveness from Allah. Knowing that a lot as it is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. We ask Allah to guide us to what is best and we ask Allah to allow us to hear the speech and to follow the best of it.
