We seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires, whom Allah guides. No one can misguide. And who will me allow us to be misled? No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah alone having no partners. As I'm having masala Heidi was sending him as his slave and His Messenger in his perfect worshiper. Allah subhana wa Tada says in the Quran, Oh you who believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared, and do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah says, Oh mankind Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and produce from so it's made and made from their
combination many men and women, so Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship, verily, Allah is Ever Watchful over you. And Allah says, Oh, you will believe fear Allah and say that which is correct, he will correct for you your deeds and forgive you your sins, and whoever will basil might as messenger that they are indeed victorious, to proceed.
They have no no model, the Alon who reports out a little lost a little idea send it says I heard this from Rasul Allah, not once, not twice, not five times last seven times. But even more than that, that Rasulullah sallallahu Essen and told the story of a man called and gift from Benny slide. And he said that this man I'll give him did not leave a single sin, except that he committed everything
until there was a woman who was in need of money. And she came and she asked, I'll give her for it. And he offered her 60 Day knobs on account that she would give him access to her. And she agreed to to her need. And so when he was in a position of taking advantage of her, she wept. And he asked her why she was crying in that moment. Then she said, I never did this before. And so I'll give her in that moment. He repented to Allah subhanaw taala and he left her it he left the money. And he said, I will never ever sin against the loss of Hannah data again. In that moment, he repented and he said I'm never going to commit sins against the loss of Hannah data ever again. And he died that night.
And the next morning they found written on his door, but the offer Allahu Allah subhana dialer has forgiven education, and the province cellulitis and have narrated the story of repentance many times over. In this be fooled by wanting to talk about October and Ramadan. I want to talk about repentance. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah named himself at the web.
He made Himself the acceptor, constant acceptor of repentance. Allah subhanaw taala opens the door of repentance, and he extends his hand during the day to forgive the one who sins during the night. And Allah subhanho wa Taala extends his hands during the night to forgive the one who sins during the day. And little su Lasala ly to send them describes for us the greatest image of Allah Subhana Allah is happiness that I have come across in the Sierra, the prophets, Allah Allah Allah who sent him says that Allah is more happy with the Toba of his slave. And he gives the example of a man who had been travelling in a desert. And this man had a camel and that camel had on it, all of His
provision. It was his one life why this camel as he's traveling through the desert, and when
he's journeying somehow along the way, he loses the camel.
There's no nine to one. There's nobody to call, he's lost his camel. He's lost his life. And I can imagine this person going through all of the stages of grief panic in that moment. He goes through despair. Finally, this man comes to the conclusion that he's going to die. And so he sits waiting for death. And in that moment, where he's waiting for a certain that all of a sudden what does he see he sees his camel in front of them again.
And so the man mentioned that in follow he says, hola hola and to have the one book
says oh Allah you are my slave and I am your Lord and little pseudo la Sol Elijah syndrome says I mentioned that before he got it all messed up because of how happy he was. This is the example of happiness that'll suit Allah cellulitis and them is giving to Allah Subhana Allah for what? When you and I repent, and we say I'm done.
When you and I say I'm done with this, this Senthil us or Allah accept it for me. I'm over it.
I want to conquer this. I'm done with a yellow. No more. I know it's been years. I flirted I've tried. I've lied.
But this time for sure. I'm dusting it off of myself. And I need your help.
The province cellulitis and even before that, actually,
the stories of repentance are so many that the scholars wrote books on Kisenosato webby stories like even Kodama, the stories of their Panthers. And one of the most famous stories is the job of medic Indian up. Malik Ibn DNR. He was one of the great scholars of Islam, but before that he was your average thug.
And Malik used to drink alcohol. And Allah Subhana Allah blessed him with a baby girl. And he was incredibly attached to this baby girl.
And she died.
And he grieved
and he said tonight, I am going to drink a drinking that I've never done before.
I'm going to go all out tonight. And he did.
And in his sleep, he saw the Day of Judgment.
And he had
the fire that was in front of him that he was fleeing from and he saw a dragon that was chasing him that he was fleeing from
and he sees an old feeble men and that old men he runs them and he says can you help me and the man says I've got no I can't do anything for you but keep running. So mighty give me the nod keeps running and that dragon is chasing him
until he enters into a bastion a castle where he sees
hundreds of children
and inside from amongst these children out steps his little girl
and with one hand she repels the dragon that has been chasing him
and she recites to him a verse I them yet Nene Latina Armando and Daksha Apollo boom levy Karela where man has said a minute help. While I Hakuna can Lavina O'Toole Kitab me for Pauline will omit for cassettes booboo, mocha Filipino fast support. This verse is included in the story of so many of the Sahaba and so many of the stories of the setup with regards to their Toba has not the time come for those who have believed that their hearts be soft into the remembrance of Allah.
Isn't isn't it enough? Allah like Haven't you had enough?
This sin that you've been immersed in hasn't had been long enough? Haven't you enjoyed it long enough? Haven't you been broken by it long enough? Haven't you been grieved by it long enough? Haven't you been saddened by it long enough? Has not the time come? Lm yet? Nene livina Armineh
and Maliki been there not he asked his girl and he said, Tell me what this dragon was. She says it was your sins. He says Tom Eagle this old man was she said it was your good deeds. He wasn't strong enough to help you.
Your good deeds on the day of judgment that it manifested in that old Fievel mat. It wasn't strong enough to help you. But she says go back and he awoke and he corrected his affairs and he became the great scholar medic of Indian.
Toba is something that Allah Subhana Allah loves in fact,
we'll solve the loss of Elijah sending them in the story of God we have pneumatic and famous stove of God of pneumatic which has reported and replied and most of that so long story that we've pneumatic finally repents. Allah accepts his repentance but when the date comes when guided by the mighty after being boycotted for 50 days, he walks into the messages of Rasulullah cellulitis and muscle loss Allah light s&m says to him an amazing statement. He says if she to be theory, Omen medulla alayka, mon Zuma with that can
you know if you ask someone off the cuff and you ask them what's the best day of your life? Some people off the cuff they'll say the day that I graduated, they'll say that the day that I got married the day that I had my first child, bottle soon will last a little light and send them qualifies for guided pneumatic, the best day of his life. He says, rejoice. Rejoice, or congratulations on the best day you have ever had since your mother gave birth to you. And so what that shows us is that the best day of a person's life is the day that ALLAH SubhanA died exa
and that can be today
you know when we attend hold was sometimes the question that we ask is do I know this information already? Have I heard the story of a gift already have I heard the story of my argument they'll already have I heard the story of Tom even you might have already. That's not the point. The point is that I repent today Rasulullah sallallahu. s&m says yeah, you're a nurse to boo Fania to will Allah He thermen Sabrina Mara Rasulullah sallallahu SNM says, oh, people repent to Allah. Repent, because I repent to Allah subhanho data over 70 times of day. One of the habits that we learned from the Sahaba is that a person constantly be aware of their sins, because if a person is constantly
aware of their sins, then that person will constantly seek forgiveness for their sins, and if they constantly seek forgiveness for their sins, then inshallah either they will be forgiven. Allah subhana wa Tada. He says,
Well, Lydian Elia Runa my hola hola. And often what I opted to do in a knifes and Nettie hologram Allah who in Durban helped me with is knowing when may you have either Erica Yanaka Osama, Allah says and those who do not call upon other than Allah subhana wa Tada. They don't worship other than Allah and they don't kill anybody and they don't commit Zina.
And whoever does that, they will meet a penalty on the Day of Judgment, you bla bla bla either. They will have a multiplication of punishment on the Day of Judgment willfulness fee, why not and they will be there in humiliation in laminata. Except those who repet
what Armin and belief we're happy to hammer on Saudi hat and they do righteous deeds. What will happen to these people, that person who committed all of those major since
Allah will forgive them? Allah subhana Dias as for Willa eco Ubud did Allah who said he ATeam has hundreds
Allah Subhana Allah die that says those sins. If that person repents, Allah will transform those sins into good deeds.
A man came through sort of lost a little light is ended up the wall, it reports that a man came to this little last little lady, I send them and he said, Y'all follow luck? What do you think of a person who committed every sin, every single sin the man committed? There's not a single sin that I did not commit.
And Rasulullah Leidos and they've said to him, I slept he said, Did you accept Islam? He said, Yes.
He said, then do good deeds and avoid since and ALLAH SubhanA data will convert those sins into good deeps, those every sins that you did, Allah will convert them into good deeds. The mindset we'll have the right to have a Jannati is that even my my treachery, my betrayal, and even my immorality, all of the things that I did? And he said yes.
And so the man continued to say, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar until he left.
Toba is an act that immediately makes the day that we do it the best day of our life dough but is an act that Allah Subhana Allah data has left open for us for whenever we choose as long as a person is not on their deathbed.
Ramadan is the month of October. And so let us commit to date that we make today the best day of our life, and that we repent to Allah subhana wa Bucha Massey, Mr. Mustapha while you were looking for stuff at all in order for Rahim.
hamdulillah Salah salam ala Rasulillah, who is it seems Fira? What are the pillars of Toba? Very briefly. The first is that a person stops doing whatever that sin is they stop committing it. Number two is that they commit to not doing it again. What does commitment look like? We all know what commitment looks like if a person says I'm committed to being healthy. Today, I'm going to start a new chapter of my life. And then add a thought time you see them eating three burgers and two sodas, you're going to say to them you're not committed. This is not this is not real commitment. real commitment requires action. And so if a person is committed to toe, but they are going to change
their behavior, that might mean that they need to change their phone number that might mean that they need to get off of social media that might mean that they need to put themselves in a better environment, they might need to surround themselves with better people better friends. That's what commitment looks like. That's number two. Number three is that a person feels regret. A person doesn't look back on those good those sins with a sense of longing or appreciation or happiness. That person realizes that those are moments that were robbed from their life from ALLAH SubhanA data, so they don't think positively about it. And number four, if the Toba has to do if the sin has
to do with the right of somebody that they return that right. person can't steal $10,000 from somebody and say I've repented to Allah from stealing, no, you have to return that money to that person. Those are the four pillars of Toba and I want to let
I leave you with two things.
Of the greatest, if not the greatest cause of Toba.
The greatest cause of Toba is the Tofik of Allah subhanaw taala and some of the greatest causes of that Sophia was that a person asked it from Allah and the province of Allah do send them taught us that when a person makes will do every time they make will do they say a shadow in La ilaha illallah wa shadow no Muhammad Abdul Rasul Allah whom I didn't a minute, the well being which I don't even know multiple hearing
that a person says, Oh Allah, make me of those who repent and make me of those who purify themselves. Because for you to stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala right now
you purify your outer with Lulu, but the internal needs to be purified as well. And that is purified by Toba. And so you say Allahu Maija honey Minato wellbeing which I named them with Allah hating. And if a person says that after they make well they'll also lost a little idea send them says that the eight gates of paradise are open for him. He enters from wherever he wishes, this is reported by Muslim and so when you're making will do I want you to learn and to make this dua and if you make this drought already I want you to to be cognizant of what you're saying. And number two, sometimes a person loves us.
Sometimes even Ramadan a person might be making God that a lot allows them to repent from every single sin except for one
and they don't mention that one. I'm saving that for another year next year.
So what then Allah subhana wa Tada is the one who controls people's hearts. And so if my heart is attached to a sin that I don't want to let go, then make dua to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to change that heart.
