one commandment

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

and that is, when you say something is halal or something is haram, you're signing a signature, whose signature are you signing?

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

Allah is Zoja. And that's a heavy signature to forge. And so make sure that when you speak, you speak with knowledge. And if you don't have knowledge, it's simple, don't speak

00:00:37--> 00:00:46

of the live drummer was asked about something. And he said, I don't know. And then when the person left, he became so happy. And he said, Omar was asked about something that he didn't know. And he said, I don't know.

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

He was happy.

00:00:50--> 00:01:02

They said, if they used to say, teach your students, I don't know. Like, you teach them knowledge. Why? Because I don't know, is half of knowledge. So say it with me say, I don't know.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

I don't know.

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

Feels good, right? I don't know.

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

Not I think,

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

you know, sometimes

00:01:14--> 00:01:19

you're sitting in a circle, and then somebody comes to ask a religious question. And you're just like,

00:01:21--> 00:01:57

I want that person asked me, come on, ask me ask me ask me, right? That's not the way the companions were tabulated, would mention that they would go and ask a question. And they would go from one companion to the next. Each one of them is sending the companion that person to the next person asked that person asked that person until he finally came back around to the first person, each one of them hoping that they wouldn't have to burden themselves with answering that question. Because when you answer a question about the Sharia, you are now accountable for it in front of Allah Azza. Even if it's in the masjid, even if it's in the masjid, even if it's on the street, even if it's on

00:01:57--> 00:02:18

the street, even if it's on Facebook. Yes, even if it's on Facebook. So I remember my chef, when he had posted those questions on Facebook, and he said, please ask me your questions about Ramadan. And I will give your answers. Do you know what the question that was asked the most? The question that came up as being number one question about fasting?

00:02:23--> 00:02:39

Does brushing the teeth? Does brushing your teeth breaks the fast? I was the number one question. And then I remember looking at it, seeing all of the likes thumbing you know, thumbs up, lifting it up. And then the next comment under it was yes, it does.

00:02:41--> 00:02:55

The next comment after it was no, it does not. The next comment after that was, here's a video of chef so and so answering your question. And I'm thinking to myself, I'm reading through this and I'm like Allahu Akbar, who asked you

00:02:57--> 00:03:35

Nobody asked you, you. These questions were directed to a scholar on his own Facebook page from his own students. Why did you decide while you're sitting in your pajamas, in your apartment or in your house, in your basement, at your school? To take it upon yourself to answer on behalf of Allah and His messenger? When nobody asked you you see this is the difference between therapy that happens on social media which it doesn't and therapy or that happens growing up in the massage it because in the message when you're sitting in that masala and the Imam is sitting in the corner or the chef is sitting in the corner

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

and somebody comes up to ask you a question, what do you do?

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

You say them,

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

right? You go like this?

00:03:45--> 00:03:59

Is this 45 degrees or 180? You go like that, right? Go ask that person. And this is something that's such a valuable it seems insignificant. But this is something that's lost from everybody who learns and studies Islam online.

00:04:01--> 00:04:16

They don't learn this concept of directing questions to other people don't speaking if there's somebody who's more qualified than you, right and even seeking out somebody who's more qualified than you to answer on behalf of the religion okay.

00:04:18--> 00:04:55

I left in some people have been who selima followed me. They said to me by Allah, we do not know that you committed a sin before you have. You, however, showed an ability to put forward an excuse before a messenger of Allah, Allah is Allah Am I like those who stay behind him? It would have been enough for the forgiveness of your sin that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have sought forgiveness for you. By Allah, they kept on re approaching me until I thought of going back to the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam and retract my contract and my compassion. Then I said to them, has anyone else met the same fate? They said yes, two persons have met the same fate.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

They made the same statement as you did and the same verdict was done.

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

In their case, I asked Who are they? They said Marrara been a rugby. Emir and Hillel been omega L. Worked with him. They mentioned these two pious men who had taken part in the Battle of bedeutet. And they were, and there was an example for me and them, I was confirmed in my original result.

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

So God provided leaves the company of the province.

00:05:28--> 00:05:58

And his family surrounding him, they said, What are you doing? He would have been enough for you. If you had simply told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he would have made this the font for you. And that would have been enough. God pneumatic says, they continued to blame me and reproach me and telling me why did you do that? Until I almost went back, and retracted my confession. And then I asked them, I said, has anybody said what I said? And they said, Yes, more or even year over year, I'm ready.

00:05:59--> 00:06:12

And he lives in Omega work if he he lives near me and work with you. They mentioned to righteous people who had participated in the Battle of better and I then

00:06:13--> 00:06:40

felt good in their company. And I was committed to my original resolve. What do you get from this section here? Yes. So the importance of surrounding yourself with good people your friendship, the province the licenses and model Allah Dini add for young Varaha document, you hide it, he says that a person has upon the religion of their friend. So let each one of you be very careful as to who they take as friends, people will go to Paradise and some people will go to the Hellfire based on their friends.

00:06:41--> 00:06:55

Just like in this world, some people become successful. Some people go to prison, just because of who their friends were. Literally right, it gets very serious. And so here, when he was with his family members, he almost went back.

00:06:56--> 00:07:11

But when he realized that he was in the company of who these two righteous men from Albania, the greatest of the people he was secure in his decision, it's a strengthened his resolve. Very good what else?

00:07:16--> 00:07:36

Sometimes the people who are telling you to break are the people who are closest to you. And so the truth is the truth no matter who is standing against you even be your closest family members. And that's very difficult but that makes a person status very high. Very good. What else?

00:07:37--> 00:07:56

Okay, they say we know that you'd never committed anything other it would have been enough for you that the Prophet saw the lights and and make us the font for you. This also shows us something very important. A person with film and my film I mean understanding a person with Fick knows the danger of sins.

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

A person with film knows the danger of since

00:08:02--> 00:08:14

Sofia and authority he says turkey with them be a sort of Manitoba. He said for you to avoid a sin. It is much safer, it is much better than repentance.

00:08:15--> 00:08:20

At the end of the day, after you commit a sin, do you ever know Are you ever 100% sure that Allah is forgiving you?

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

You ever know? Even if you go to Edge?

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

You never know. Right?

00:08:27--> 00:08:32

And so in English, we say an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of

00:08:35--> 00:09:12

I was almost going to think that was French or something. Yeah, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure, an ounce the smallest prevention, it is better than you committing something, and then seeking to cure it and cure it and cure and cure it. Now I don't want a person to be hopeless to feel like oh, well, I've already committed things. What does that mean? The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he told us khulumani Anahata or Hirakata in a baboon. And in fact, if we didn't sin, Allah azza wa jal will replace us and bring us for the community that does sin, but we shouldn't try to sin. And we definitely shouldn't play games with Allah. Imagine if you knew

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


00:09:14--> 00:09:20

that Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was going to seek forgiveness for you. Man, that's such a great blessing.

00:09:21--> 00:09:44

What a great opportunity. Even then his family is telling him Don't worry, just lie and the prophets is default is going to be good enough for you. God we've pneumonic knows that that's not a game that's worth playing. Even if it's the default of the province that Allah does and and so we should never play that game ourselves. Never say I'm going to do this and this and this and this I'm just gonna wile out in college and then I'm going to do and I'm gonna be alright.

00:09:45--> 00:09:56

That's not how it works. I'm just gonna get this house river mortgage is going to be super long. After I buy it. Pay off all of my debts. I'm just going to make 100 And it's going to be all good.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

That's not how it works.

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

That's not how it works stuck with them be a sort of Manitoba. Avoiding sin in the first place is always much better

00:10:08--> 00:10:13

or easier. Easier is a better word it is easier than Toba.

00:10:15--> 00:10:16


00:10:17--> 00:10:19

since you have the mic, sister can you just keep reading for us

00:10:22--> 00:11:02

the first word is the the messenger will last the lioness primitive the Muslims to talk to the three of us from amongst those who have stayed behind. The people began to avoid us in their attitude towards this change and it seemed as if the whole atmosphere had turned against us. And it was in fact the same atmosphere of which I was fully aware in which I had lived for a fairly long time. We spent 15 nights in this very state and my two friends combined themselves within their houses and spent most of their time weeping is I was the youngest and the strongest I would leave my house attended Congressionals a lot move, move about in buzzers, bazaars, bazaars, but none would speak to

00:11:02--> 00:11:28

me. I would come to the messenger of a loss a lot of us as he had, as yet, as he sat amongst people after the Celox greet him and would ask myself whether or not his lips moved in response to my greetings, then outperforms a lot near him and look at him. And look at his Delta Lee. When I finished my salon, she would look at me, and when I would cast a glance at him, he would turn away his eyes for me.

00:11:30--> 00:12:11

GABA mediamatic is boycotted by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims. The Prophet SAW Selim says nobody talked to nobody interact with God with pneumatic and his two companions. his two companions, they were both old. And so they stayed home and they just cried and cried and cried. God says I was the youngest. So I used to go out into the market places I used to go to the masjid, I used to go everywhere. And I will say salaam to people and nobody would respond to me. They would be completely ignored. And I will go to the masjid and say salaam to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he wouldn't respond to me and then I would pray. And when I would pray, the prophets Allah sent him

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

would look at me and then when I'd finish and I'd look at him, he'd look away from me.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

What do you get here? What do you see?

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


00:12:25--> 00:12:36

Okay, Rasulullah Selim is still disappointed in him. He's still disappointed and yet you still see the love of the Prophet and the concern, or Salah Salem is looking at this person when he's praying. Yes.

00:12:40--> 00:12:48

He didn't get the way. Right. Very good. So there's no information coming then. We continue what else?

00:12:51--> 00:12:51


00:12:52--> 00:13:14

very good. So I'm gonna have to clean the hardest pair on them was featured in Asia and cabbie Mike is obviously not a hypocrite. He's going to the Salawat also, something interesting here is that God of pneumatic the story is called tow but cabin pneumatic. Everybody knows it as the Toba of Khabib pneumatic. Why did it become carried pneumatic story and not the other twos?

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

Okay, so they were older. But why did he become cab story?

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

They were from bedden. Okay, but why did it become cab story? I mean,

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

proactive in what sense?

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

It became cab story because God was the one that everybody saw.

00:13:38--> 00:13:47

He's the one who's there in the salon. He's the one who's walking around in the marketplaces. He's the one who everybody is consciously boycotting. They're not consciously boycotting the two who are sitting at home.

00:13:48--> 00:14:06

And what this shows us is that when a person goes through a calamity, a lot of times, their natural response is to isolate themselves. There's a problem happening in their family. So they go and they lock the doors and nobody knows about it. And I'm just gonna, I'm not gonna go to the masjid anymore. I'm not gonna interact with the community.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

That doesn't help.

00:14:12--> 00:14:27

If the community if you're not interacting with the community, if you're not involved in they're not it's just human nature, out of sight out of mind. And because God was the one who interacted God was the one who was on their mind. And God was the one who they were

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

you know, constantly in remembrance of in his story became the story of Cobb. What else do you guys see

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

it's a short time he said.

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

It's not it's a very long time. You know, this is he was literally in solitary confinement. This way. This is solitary confinement, but the thing is, he wasn't in a box. He was out in the open, but he's not receiving any sort of social benefit. He's saying set up. You know, how bad do you feel when you go

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

Go to a new community and you walk into the message say salam alaikum to people and the people just ignore you. Like you're like, I never want to come to this place again.

00:15:09--> 00:15:16

Go into Malik and these are his family members and his beloved has a light forget that when you post up a status on Facebook and nobody likes it, how do you feel?

00:15:17--> 00:15:30

Right? You You need that you need that input from people. God forbid Mike is getting nothing for 50 days and his companions. Also though one of the major lessons that we learned from this is that difficulty may precede Toba

00:15:31--> 00:16:19

difficulty may precede Toba a lot of times we think I cried in my sujood and I said y'all holla at us. I'm done with this. And then on the next morning, you're like, Uh hum de la repented to Allah azza wa jal. I'm good to go. All of my sins are forgiven Gaby when he might have had to walk through fire for 50 days before the revelation came down that his Stobo was accepted. And so it may be that a person repents, and it will not just automatically, you know, clear their cache or their record. It may be that Allah as we get is going to squeeze them. It may be that they will be tested. The brother who's dating girls left and right, and then finally says hamdulillah I've repented to Allah

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

azza wa jal. I'm done.

00:16:23--> 00:16:27

And then he's expecting when will you tequila ah, Aloha Mahalo, Jaya Zuko woman.

00:16:29--> 00:16:49

Okay, I'm going to repent to Allah as interim have Taqwa of Allah and Allah azza wa jal is going to provide for me for where from where I didn't expect. So inshallah my wedding was going to be in two months, I'm expecting a bride to come from the sky, from where I did not expect. And then they find that two months go by and a year go by, and two years go by and three years go by, and there is no option to get married.

00:16:50--> 00:17:26

And Allah as we did a squeezing him to see are you sincere? Are you going to be willing to walk through fire, the sister who's got a business, she's got a business going on and it might have involved some haram transactions and she says, You know what, I'm going to get rid of this I'm going to quit my job or whatever it is the business I'm going to make sure that I'm gonna go the hallowed route now. And when we tequila hit Aloha manager, I'm repenting from this haram investment or these haram transactions. And then she's expecting that this duck love Allah, Allah Azza is not going to solve either hell Halal sub, but it's just going to, she's going to become a millionaire now.

00:17:27--> 00:17:39

And instead, she's watching us her business goes down the drain. At her bank account has never been emptier. And Allah oz Jade is squeezing her to see if this job is sincere.

00:17:41--> 00:17:56

If you lose all of the dunya is that Stober still worth more to you than that? Or is there some sort of hidden defect to your repentance? God who pneumatic is being squeezed, and he's continuing to be sincere? Okay, what else?

00:18:00--> 00:18:27

Incredibly important. The province of Elijah Saddam did not have to do a marketing campaign. He didn't have to spend millions of dollars to command the people to avoid Gavi, Maliki didn't have to send out secret police to see if they were talking to God in pneumatic or not. He made an announcement and everybody stopped. This shows you the great therapy of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and it shows you the greatness of the sahaba. Also, guys, you need to pay attention to the greatness of the sahaba.

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

They were the best generation after Rasulullah, sallAllahu Sydenham Allah and who is the greatest person after the MBR period.

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

Sometimes the leader is great. But sometimes the flock is bad. The prophets Allah Satan was an excellent leader. And the Sahaba were an excellent flock. Sometimes we blame our leadership. We look around at the community and we say, Man,

00:18:57--> 00:19:05

our Muslim community needs better leaders. All of our leaders are horrible. No, sometimes you have great leaders, but sometimes the community that they're sent to

00:19:06--> 00:19:26

are horrible. most evident Imran Ali Salam was an excellent leader. That didn't stop Benny Aslan IID from being a horrible flock. It have untold, a book of Atilla in a dune they said to Musa Musa al salaam says here we're going to enter into Jerusalem

00:19:28--> 00:19:42

of the melodica Allah Allah has written it for you enter it no problem. They said Yeah, Musa there's a a strong people in there and we're not going to enter as long as they're in there. And if they leave and we're going to enter

00:19:44--> 00:19:53

and then they said they had the audacity did say, Yeah, Musa we're never going to enter it ever. You and your Lord go and fight in our fight and we're gonna stay here.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

So sometimes it's not the leadership sometimes it's the flock and that's why I love the the

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

I saw a sign downstairs in the youth lounge. I loved it, because it said something. I'm not quoting it verbatim, but it says something like if I, I follow leadership because it's Salam, anybody can help me out from the nobody noticed that. It says I follow leadership because I'm obligated to follow leadership or something like that. I don't remember it verbatim. But that point is absolutely 100% Correct. Don't you realize how Allah Allah has designed for this OMA to follow leadership? Allah says, Yeah, you live the normal to Allah while to follow suit. What did he mean cool? Allah says, Obey Allah and obey His messenger and obey he doesn't say and obey, he says, and those in

00:20:41--> 00:21:24

authority amongst you. So before Allah, He said up to and before the messenger, he said, I'll tell you why. Because the FDA to Allah and his messenger are both absolute. They are mutlak all the time of your Allah all the time, after all will remain calm. The leadership amongst you He doesn't say up to you, but it's a continuation of the verse. Why does he not say I'll tell you the scholars they said it indicates that the thorough to leadership is not absolute, like the FBI is to Allah and His Messenger, but it is a restricted PA. It is a restricted obedience. You obey them as long as they obey Allah and His messenger. But you still obey them. And so we pray behind the Imam and we pray

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

behind the Imam as long as they make a mistake if they make a mistake, then we leave the Salah, right?

00:21:30--> 00:21:39

Yes. I don't know how you guys are praying. But the way that you pray is that if the Imam makes a mistake, you just leave the Salah and you walk out Isn't that how you guys do it?

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

What do you guys do?

00:21:44--> 00:21:48

He says of hon Allah but the Imam continues to get up he got up for fifth like i What do you do?

00:21:49--> 00:21:53

Okay, you clap you say subhanallah the mom gets up for the rock. What do you do?

00:21:55--> 00:21:58

You sit and wait for the Imam. You don't leave the salah.

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

You don't leave the salah.

00:22:01--> 00:22:02


00:22:03--> 00:22:13

Okay, is he being bossy? So if he turns around and he says everybody be quiet. I mean, my point here is that you are commanded to follow the Imam.

00:22:14--> 00:22:34

And we you know how impressive it is when people look outside and they see the Muslim community and they see the Imam go like this. And they see hundreds of people just all go like this. It's incredibly impressive. But that's the way that Allah has designed it. The prophets Allah Allah Allah Center says, when three of you go on a journey, do not go until you make one of them. The Emir

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

what does that mean? That means we're supposed to be an OMA that trains ourselves to follow leadership.

00:22:41--> 00:22:59

That's the way that we're so that's the way that we're designed. Because following leadership will take you in directions and will take you to places that you will never get to if you bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger, and we don't have more time to go into that. But there's a lot that can be said, Okay.

00:23:01--> 00:23:14

Well, the harsh treatment, probably the most close to me contract for a considerable length of time. I walked and I climbed upon the wall of the garden of

00:23:18--> 00:23:23

course, my cousin and I had a great love for him. I agree with him, but

00:23:24--> 00:23:55

in answer to my reading, I said to him, oh Abu Qatada, I do in the name of Allah. You are not aware that I that I love a lot and it was in there. So what I said and I asked him the same question again. But he really just harlot. I again, assertive when upon he said, Allah and His Messenger called insulin. And over, my eyes were filled with tears and I came back, climbing down the wall.

00:23:58--> 00:24:21

As I was walking in the bazaars of an Medina, Imam from the Syrian peasants, who had come to Seoul, for greens in Regina asked people to direct him to character to character, Malik people pointed towards me, he came to me and delivered a letter from the kingdom of Hassan.

00:24:23--> 00:24:56

And, as I was a scribe, I read the letter, whose purpose was for verse was, it has been conveyed to us that you have a you lie in front of profit scholars that was treating you harshly or was not fitting for placed when you are to be regarded and when you cannot find your right place. So come to us and we shall receive you graciously. As I read, as I read the letter I said, this was to assist.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

So I put it to fire

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

In a very good

00:25:02--> 00:25:33

beautiful guy with me Malik now is alone for a long time and he goes to his cousin Abu Qatada who's like a brother to him, one of the most beloved people to him and he goes to him by himself in the garden of Abu Qatada and he says to Abu Qatada, Assam, why they come? And Abu Qatada doesn't respond and this hurt God so much and he says to him, don't you know that I love Allah and His messenger? Don't you know that I love Allah his Messenger Don't you know that I love Allah and His messenger. And then finally I will Qatada says, Allah wa rasuluh Allah

00:25:35--> 00:25:46

and Abu Qatada leaves Oh Gaby pneumatic finally leaves and his eyes are filled with tears. Shortly after that, he's just been rejected by his closest family members.

00:25:47--> 00:25:53

And in that moment of sadness, he receives a letter from a Syrian peasant.

00:25:55--> 00:26:13

A letter from the kingdom of Assad, which is a Christian tribe that was allied with the Romans. And the letter is coming from the kingdom of Assad that is saying, we've heard a Messiah who book called the Jaffa we've heard that you're your friend, meaning Rasulullah Salim, he's treating you harshly.

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

You don't deserve that.

00:26:17--> 00:26:30

Why don't you come to us? And we'll take care of you. God, we've pneumatic he said, Hi, the Avon minute Bella. This is also a test. And he burned the letter in an oven. What lessons do you get from this section right here.

00:26:34--> 00:26:54

Very good. So that is when shaytaan goes for his little hook shots. He's not just jabbing. When you're at your lowest point, that's when he comes with the big blows. And that's exactly what he did for cod cod was in his lowest point. And now he receives a letter from the kingdom of Assad, a Christian tribe that was allied with the Romans and who was the campaign of taboo against again

00:26:56--> 00:27:10

against the Romans. So you see how it all comes full circle. It's not it's not a coincidence. So the Byzantine Empire of assign is an ally with them. They're a Christian tribe allied with the Romans. And now they're trying to create this

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

person, a cabin nomadic they're trying to get him to betray the prophets of Allah. Listen. What else?

00:27:18--> 00:27:19


00:27:23--> 00:27:30

You cannot buy him. Very good. Of course, he's a great Sahabi from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam of the province I sent him he's not going to be bought. Yes.

00:27:32--> 00:27:43

Yes, yes. Even though he's, you know, if he had went to the Kingdom Hall sign he would have been honored and pampered and showing riches that he wouldn't have gotten in Medina, but he rejects it all. Yes. What else?

00:27:45--> 00:27:49

Well, he was a wealthy man. He wasn't a prince or a king. I don't know of any princes or kings in Medina.

00:27:51--> 00:27:57

But he was a wealthy man. And by the way, just think about this. He's a wealthy man. What do you think is happening to him?

00:27:58--> 00:27:58


00:28:00--> 00:28:05

the community boycotting him? What's happening to his wealth? Don't you think he's taking a financial hit?

00:28:06--> 00:28:11

Right now nobody's buying from him? They're not even talking to him. Yes, what else?

00:28:16--> 00:28:25

His closeness to the Prophet sallallaahu Selim as well known, very good, I Casasola. The calves wealth and closeness to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well known.

00:28:28--> 00:28:30

What describe nomadic do with the letter?

00:28:33--> 00:28:42

He burns it right. What lesson do you get from that? Why did he burn it? Why did he just fold it up? Why didn't he just rip it?

00:28:44--> 00:28:49

Very good. That could be temptation when? Even after he rips it up.

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

Or temptation and how,

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

in what way?

00:28:58--> 00:29:03

And this shows us Toba has a number of

00:29:05--> 00:29:06


00:29:07--> 00:29:40

The first pillar of Toba is another that a person regret that a person wishes that they did not do it. They don't look back, fondly over there since the second is intention to never commit that sin again, as ima and by intention, I mean commitment, commitment is a better word, commitment and ever commit that sin again. And the third is actually never committing that sin again. A person stole but is effective, as long as they don't commit that sin again. What happens if they do commit that sin again?

00:29:41--> 00:29:43

Then they get up dust themselves off and

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

repent again and go through the process. But hear the second pillar which is commitment to never committing the sin again. True commitment involves taking all necessary steps to put

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

Protect yourself from falling into that sin again.

00:30:03--> 00:30:11

And so the person who says, I'm not gonna come to hell, I'm not gonna fall into Zina again, and then goes and hangs out with the same friends

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

that he got in trouble with the first time. The next day.

00:30:16--> 00:30:23

That person is not truly committed, that is Amani, that's wishful thinking. It's not as EMA.

00:30:25--> 00:30:37

A person must be willing to close the door to that sin, God with a pneumatic burns the letter and for some people for their Toba for a true toe, but they may have to change their phone numbers.

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

They may have to get off of social media.

00:30:42--> 00:30:46

They may have to change their location may have to change their schools.

00:30:48--> 00:30:53

But what Stobo worth, you guys know the story of the man who killed 99.

00:30:54--> 00:31:11

He was a serial killer. In fact, killing had become so easy for this man. This is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us for those of you who haven't heard this story, because when I said you guys all know the man who killed 90 And I was like, yes, but some people were like, Wait, who is this person? And where does he live?

00:31:14--> 00:31:37

So it's a hadith of the story of the prophets. I said, I'm told us of a man who killed 99 people. And then he wanted to repent. And so he went to a heartbeat. He went to a really, really, really good brother was always in the masjid. He prays on time, all of that he just known to be a really good guy. And he said, I've killed 99 people. If I leave in Toba, is there a repentance for me? And the man said, you killed 99? No way. So the man killed him too.

00:31:38--> 00:31:44

And he made it 100 That's how easy murder became for this person. If you give him an answer. He doesn't like your gun.

00:31:45--> 00:31:50

He killed 100. And then he goes and he finds a scholar and he says, I've killed 100 people.

00:31:52--> 00:32:20

For halimun Toba? Is there any way that I can repent in the mindset to Him and who can stand between you and the repentance? The Mercy of Allah azza wa jal, but he says, like in your people are an evil people, and you need to leave them and you need to go to another land. And he mentioned to him a place where the people will help you become steadfast in the worship of Allah. You got to leave your environment, you have to go somewhere else where the people are gonna help you. So this man went,

00:32:21--> 00:32:24

and he began journey. And when he was in the middle of his journey,

00:32:26--> 00:32:26

he died.

00:32:27--> 00:32:38

And the angels of Mercy descended and the angels of punishment descended. And the angels of Mercy said this person is journeying to his Lord, and the angels of punishment said this person has killed 100 souls.

00:32:40--> 00:32:55

And then finally, it was decreed that they would measure the distance between them if he was closer to his destination, than the angels of Mercy would take him. And if he was closer to his origin, then the angels of punishment were take him and which one did he end up being closer to?

00:32:59--> 00:33:09

He ended up being closer to his origin and the angels of punishments were going to take him and then Allah azza wa jal cause for the Earth to shift

00:33:10--> 00:33:21

just a little bit, until he became closer to his destination, and the angels of Mercy took him now, Allah azza wa jal could have just made him die a few steps later.

00:33:22--> 00:33:32

But Allah Azza didn't want it to show or Allah as we just showed, that he will shift the Earth and the universe and all of these things if you repent sincerely to him.

00:33:33--> 00:33:53

But you have to take real steps. And this man was willing to take those steps. And the question that I asked is imagine if he had just delayed his Stobo by a single day. Where would he have died? If he just decided I'm not going to head out this morning, I'm going to head out tomorrow I'm going to repent not this weekend, but I'm going to repent next weekend, where would he have ended up?

00:33:54--> 00:34:07

And so let us first thing tonight we leave with nothing else And let us commit to repenting to Allah azza wa jal when we ask Allah Allah to accept our Toba and to grant us, Toba to nasaga Allah Hammami okay.

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

We're almost done in Charlotte.

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

When the 40 days having maps in the messenger will last so long audios received no revelation they're came to me a messenger a messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, very the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has commanded us to keep away from your wife. I said, Should I divorce her? Or what else should I do? He said no, but only keep away from her and don't have sexual contact with her. The same message was sent to my companions. So I said to my wife, you better go to your parents and stay there with them until Allah gives the decision. The decision in my case,

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

the wife of Halal Pinyon, May has came, came to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, O Messenger of Allah so long live in Southern Hello, bye

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

No Mia is a senior person and has no service. Do you disapprove if I serve her?

00:35:07--> 00:35:48

He said no, but don't let him have any sexual contact with you. She said by Allah. He has no such desire left in by Allah he has been in tears since this calamity struck him, members of my family said to me, you should have sought permission from messenger of a loss in the long run in the sun. In regard to your wife, he has allowed the wife of Manuel Mejia to serve him I said, I would not seek permission from messenger will last in the long run, even send them for I do not know what Mr. Will also the low volume of some of my say in response to that, as I'm a young man, it was in this state that I spent 10 more nights in this and those 50 days have passed since the Messenger of Allah

00:35:48--> 00:36:15

Lohani was prevented talking to us. Very good luck. Thank you very much don't disappear. I'm going to need you for the rest of the night. It's hard enough, so he likes the province Hello Leidos sends a messenger to cognitive pneumatic sank. The messenger says the province ally centum has commanded you to separate from your wife Gaby, my sister, should I divorce her? He says no. Just refrain from being intimate with her. And then

00:36:16--> 00:36:25

the wife of United Noumea she comes to Rasulullah Salah Salem and she's seeking permission or he commands sorry, he commands to separate from the wife.

00:36:26--> 00:37:02

And she goes back to her family. So Nakaba and Mike is completely alone. And then when it came to he lived in New Romania. His wife came to the Prophet size cinema saying that he's an old man, he needs me to serve Him. And then he said, Fine, serve him but just don't be intimate. Don't let him be intimate with you. And she said the house will lie. He's been crying ever since this ordeal happened. He doesn't care about anything else. And in this 50 days had gone by. This was when 40 Nights had passed. Now Abdul Karim he looks and he looks at this scenario. And he says that in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:37:03--> 00:37:17

sending this messenger with this command was a bush law for cognitive pneumatic, it was basically good news for cognitive pneumatic. How is it good news? Number one, he says it was good news because communication was happening. And again,

00:37:18--> 00:37:30

that in and of itself, for example, have you ever had something that you an application that you had sent forth? Or something that was in process, job application or anything? And it was in process for so long? You're like, Man, did they lose my file?

00:37:32--> 00:37:40

Like is it even. And then you receive a letter from them that says, your application is still in process? And you're like at Hamdulillah? I'm just glad to hear from you.

00:37:41--> 00:38:02

Right? You've just put one of my things at ease. And so kind of your mnemonic at least he's receiving information that you know what? Your issue is still in process is still pending. That's number one. Number two, it's a Bushra because he's being separated from his wife. Why is being separated from your wife in this instance, good news.

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

Brothers are all afraid to answer.

00:38:09--> 00:38:22

Why is it good news in real name says it's good news. Because he says in the last moments, we are commanded to focus on the finish line.

00:38:23--> 00:39:04

Meaning that when you're at the end of a race, that's when you sprint the hardest. And that's when you focus on your percent completely on Allah Zoda. And that is when you separate from your spouse in Ramadan, we fast and we're cool and you know, we pace ourselves and Ramadan in the last 10 Nights. What do we do? The province I'm Elias and I'm in the last 10 Nights shut them Zara. Well, yeah, Leila who? Allah, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam with Titan, his is on his lower garment, which is akin is a euphemism for the fact that you would not have any sexual relations or intimacy with his wives. Why? Because it's 10 days, a young man might do that. You see. And so when we're at

00:39:04--> 00:39:24

the finish line, that is the time when you focus completely on Allah. So we get a new sprint guy with a pneumatic whether he knows it or not, is approaching the finish line. And so on the 40th day, now it is time for you to separate from everybody and only have access to Allah azza wa jal. Do you guys see that? Okay, what else? Anything else?

00:39:29--> 00:39:57

Okay, so he is whatever is the end that he wants. He's fulfilling the means to get to the end. And so he's burning the letter. He's separating himself from his wife just to make sure that he doesn't open up a door of sin again. Also, here it shows you the incredible obedience again that the Sahaba have to the prophets of Allah is Allah. The man comes to the academy, Margie says the Prophet sallallahu Sallam orders you be separate from your wife. He says, Should I divorce her? He's like no divorce, sir.

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

Well, that's what calves

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

responses should I divorce her?

00:40:03--> 00:40:13

And he says, No, don't divorce her. But just be don't be intimate with her. Right. So here you see the amazing submission of the Sahaba or the Lidl okay?

00:40:14--> 00:40:58

This last one for me. Nothing wait more on me. Oh, yeah, that's it. Nothing wait more on me that, that I die in this state. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam does not pray over me, or that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died and I did this state with the people and so no one speaks to me, nor prays over me, God and mackerel, the lion says this whole ordeal the thing that stressed me out the most is one of two things happening. Number one, the prophets of Allah, they're sending them, I die. And also the loss I sent him does not pray over me what a disaster. Imagine being in Medina in the city of the province of Salem, while the prophet is alive and you dying, he

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

does not pray over you.

00:41:00--> 00:41:08

Incredible stress. Number two, is that rasool Allah, so I sent him dice, and that nobody ever talked to me for the rest of my life.

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

What do you get from this?

00:41:15--> 00:41:56

It's two sentences, but it really shows you the mentality of God. And man, he's not worried about his wealth that he's must be losing by the day. He's not worried about any of these things, the things that weigh him the most is that he die. And this is something also important for us to reflect on. Captain America is young, he's not old. He's got an old companion here. And yet he's concerned about his own death. How many times do we think about death? Think about dying young. I had a friend of mine, he said something. And it was very interesting to me. He had good brother, religious brother, for some reason, I don't really know. But he had driven to a casino. He didn't

00:41:56--> 00:42:26

drive to the casino, he drove to the parking lot of the casino, and he was going somewhere else around the casino. And he said, but for some reason, in my mind, he said, I decided to walk through the casino. And so I walked through the casino. And he said, I was never more terrified in my entire life, than those few moments that I was walking through the casino. Why? Like why was that so really strange. He said, I was thinking to myself, Allah azza wa jal brought me to this casino, just to take my soul here.

00:42:27--> 00:42:37

I've never been inside a casino before or since what brought me to this casino just now. And so he said, I was so afraid that all of a sudden I would die in this casino.

00:42:38--> 00:42:46

Right just being being afraid that while you're in that state, that Allah as are your take your soul, right fearing Sue Aquatimer. The second

00:42:48--> 00:43:07

is shows us the glimpse of how powerful the tetapi of the prophets Allah sent him his guy Ben Malik is sure that if the Prophet SAW sent him dice, that the Muslim ummah is not going to speak to him for the rest of their lives. You know, many people build great things. They build institutions, they build

00:43:08--> 00:43:54

countries, they found countries, they found institutions, you have people who are the patriarchs or the matriarchs of a family. They're the one who everybody looks to, they're the one who keeps everybody in line. But then what happens when that person dies, the family splits apart, the country falls apart, the organization stumbles, right, or it breaks apart also fails. What's the key here, and this is something that all of us need to pay attention to. If you are a person who runs an organization and you want the organization to run, truthfully, after you depart, or you are a parent, and you want to make sure that your children are you know upon the straight and narrow after

00:43:54--> 00:44:00

you pass away, you want people to continue to go correct after you're gone.

00:44:02--> 00:44:12

The secret here is that you develop them, train them to be conscious, not about your presence, but the presence of Allah.

00:44:14--> 00:44:14

That's the secret.

00:44:16--> 00:44:56

And so when the province of the license dies, and there was never a greater vacuum that was created, then when the messenger of God the last messenger leaps and the Sahaba are panicking, and her mother is going off on a tear whoever view says Muhammad and I'd even never thought it was legs collapse from under him and there's a lot of chaos in Medina in those moments. All it required is for a walk called the Allah on whom to get up and make his famous hopefully he says uh, my bad. Whoever view was worshipping Mohammed for in number Hamedan khidmat womankind Abdullah, for in Allah, how you lay a moot

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

just bringing them back to that focus whoever

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

Review is concerned about the presence of Mohammed that was your goal that was your concern. That missile Elijah syndrome has passed away whoever have you, though worships Allah. Then Allah azza wa jal is Forever Living, to raise people to be conscious not of the presence of any individual but the presence of Allah. That is how you guarantee that your work is going to outlast your lifetime. And it will exist as long as Allah Azza did his life.

00:45:25--> 00:45:32

Okay, I'm just gonna read here till the end, because it is the conclusion of the Surah or the conclusion of the Hadith rather.

00:45:34--> 00:46:08

And now we come to the part of Toba. God of pneumatic he says, but Allah revealed His forgiveness for us sudo su la sala they send them in the last third of the night while Allah's Messenger so Allah Allah Sydenham was with him selama um cinema sympathized with me and helped me in my disaster, Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi salam said, Oh, I'm sedima God has been forgiven. She said, Shall I send someone to him to give him the good tidings? He said, If you do so the people would not let you sleep the rest of the night. So in the province of Elijah Sydenham had offered the fajr prayer he announced Allah's forgiveness for us. The Toba came down in the middle of the night or in

00:46:08--> 00:46:30

the last third of the night and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is in the house of cinema, and cinema is told by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Kab has been forgiven. She says the IRIS will Allah shall I send him a messenger right now? And he goes no, everybody's going to wake up nobody's going to sleep. He says wait until the morning so after failure of the prophets I said I'm telling him or he makes the announcement What do you get from this little section here?

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

What stands out to you What do you feel? What do you see?

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

Very good. The prophesy said let me so consider it

00:46:43--> 00:46:53

right to any the Prophet sallallaahu Selim is taking a little bit of time to do what is better, right he's not just completely caught up in the motions the prophesy centum is practical and Nisa

00:46:54--> 00:46:56

wise. What else do you guys see

00:47:04--> 00:47:32

on Selma, well, the Alana so excited for the repentance. Okay. So excited. Right? And this shows us that they were Brothers and Sisters in Islam. They weren't you know, pretending like the other didn't exist, like sometimes we do when it comes to the other gender, whatever happens to them, who cares? No, they cared for each other's trials and tribulations and, um, cinema wanted to send Kaba a messenger right in the middle of the night. And Gabi neumag says she was somebody who cared for me in my ordeal, like she was someone who was obviously concerned about

00:47:36--> 00:48:02

God even he might access after I had offered my favorite prayer on the early morning of the 50th day of this boy caught on the roof of one of our houses, and has sat in the very state which Allah described as the earth seem constrained for me. Despite its vastness, vastness, I heard the voice of a proclaimer from the peak of the hill of salt and shouting at the top of his voice, your God given mnemonic, I've shared all kinds of mnemonic rejoice.

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

And I fell into suit on the roof of the house.

00:48:09--> 00:48:34

And I had come to know that there was a message of relief for me Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had informed the people about the acceptance of our repentance by Allah, after he had offered the fajr prayer. So the people went out to give us congratulations, and some of them went to my companions in order to congratulate them a man spirit on his horse towards me to give me the good news. And another one from the tribe of SLM came money for the same purpose. And as he approached them out, I received the good news which reached me before the writer did.

00:48:36--> 00:49:09

When the one whose voice I heard came to congratulate me, I took off my garments and gave them to him for the good news he brought to me, but Allah I possess nothing else in the form of clothes except these garments at that time, that I went and borrowed to garments dressed myself and came to the Sula Salalah I sent them on my way. I met groups of people who greeted me and congratulate me on my repentance they said congratulations on the acceptance of your repentance. I reached the Moscow rasool Allah so I sent him a submit it sitting amongst the people, but having everybody like got up and rush towards me, shook hands with me and greeted me. By Allah. No person stood up to greet me

00:49:09--> 00:49:15

from amongst them I didn't, except for him. God then said, I never forgot this good gesture of bulkhead near obey the law.

00:49:18--> 00:49:19

What do you guys have here?

00:49:20--> 00:49:37

God, we've mnemonic is that morning on his rooftop and all of a sudden, he hears Yeah, Kabini Malik. I'm sure you know, the Sahaba they were in the misuse. So they heard what happened was they heard the good news. And so Everybody's rushing out of the masjid. And one person is running.

00:49:38--> 00:49:48

Okay, and then another person jumps onto a horse to beat the guy who's running everyone wants to get the cabin radicals as fast as they can. And then another person figures out there something

00:50:00--> 00:50:00


00:50:12--> 00:50:18

comes in, he gives him his clothes out of his happiness. And then he goes to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:50:19--> 00:50:51

And when he goes to the masjid, obey the law, he jumps up, rushes up to him and shakes his hand and the top of the mighty he says Latin sahalie Pulham never forget it. I'm never going to forget what God didn't mnemonic did. Remember, you have to remember that God may not give this is a movie. Goblin mnemonic is telling the story while he's old and blind. Remember at the beginning, he's old and blind telling this story. So these flashbacks that we're having were decades ago, but just remember that * handshake from thought hype? Nirbhay de la cabane Matic all of those years, he never forgot it. What do you get from this? What do you guys have?

00:50:53--> 00:50:55

We're almost done. I need you to still give me some energy though. Yes.

00:50:57--> 00:50:58

Hey, guys out excited Lissa.

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

Very good. When God was given good news, he returned back by giving him a gift as well. Very good. Reciprocating goodness, yes.

00:51:12--> 00:51:34

Very beautiful, pet incredible point. They'll have no obey the law does something that's small. You know, when you think of thought when you're asking, if you were to ask them how, what were your greatest deeds, I now don't have to obey the law, who paralyzed his hand, or defending Rasulullah sallallahu. Salah who's wonderful, I should remember she didn't who migrated for the sake of Allah, all of these huge sacrifices that he made all the law know

00:51:36--> 00:51:41

that he's going to remember jumping up to shake the hand of God, when American community might have repented.

00:51:42--> 00:52:03

It's not a big deal. But was it a big deal for COP? Absolutely. And there were things that people did to you, or for you, there are compliments that people made to you at one point in time in your life, that might have inspired you for years, and years and years and years. And if you were to actually ask them, Do you remember when you said this, and this to me? And they're like, No,

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

I don't even remember you to be honest.

00:52:09--> 00:52:34

But you know what? You can be the same for other people, plant seeds, plant seeds, plant seeds of goodness, it can be something so simple, like could be, you know, what month are we in, we're in December, you might have some students graduating, and they're gonna post on Facebook, their graduation picked. And you're going to have a choice between commenting and saying robotic congratulations, reach for the stars or something corny like that, or just scrolling through it.

00:52:35--> 00:53:07

And you don't even think that that's a big deal. But to them, they're going to read every comment, right? And they're going to see who who said, who left something. And so the Prophet SAW Selim was once asked about it, Allah, and he said, Screw 123, who Allah muslim happiness that you bring to a Muslim, just being a person who's just a master of this beautiful art of small gestures. Right, bringing, bringing happiness in whatever way two people, it goes truly a long way. And many people never forget. Okay, what else?

00:53:09--> 00:53:29

Very good. Very good. If it wasn't like an obviously huge ordeal, then it wanted, the Muslim community wouldn't have responded in such a great way. And they obviously did because of a number of reasons. One is because Catherine Malik has two companions are great individuals. Two of them were the people of bed, the guy who Mike was there for everything great companion, and so they were all happy for him.

00:53:30--> 00:53:37

And this shows us that the boycott was not out of animosity or anger or anything like that. It was a corrective procedure. What else?

00:53:40--> 00:53:43

God Almighty, He says, Where am I?

00:53:44--> 00:54:22

Okay? I agree that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and his face was beaming with pleasure. He said, abs should behave the old man when Zuma look, rich, rejoice with the best day you have ever seen since your mother gave birth to you? I said yeah to suit Allah. Is this good news from you or from Allah? He said, No, it's from Allah. And it was common with the Prophet sallallahu Sydenham, that whenever his he was happy, his face would glow as if it were a part of the moon. And that's how we recognize his happiness. When I sat in front of him, I said, I have placed a condition upon myself, that if Allah accepts my Toba, I would give up all of my property and charity for the sake of Allah and His

00:54:22--> 00:54:59

Messenger lawsuit allah sallallahu sallam said, keep some of your property with you, it's better for you. I then said, I'll keep with me that portion which is a play, but Yasuda Allah, Verily Allah has granted me salvation because of my truthfulness. And therefore my repentance obliges me to speak nothing but the truth as long as I'm alive. God then said, By Allah, I do not know anyone among the Muslims, who has been granted truthfulness better than me since I said this little student last Allah Leidos Allah by Allah since the time I made a pledge of this to the Rasul Allah so Allah said Allah, I have never intended to tell a lie and

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

I hope that Allah will protect me against telling lies for the rest of my life.

00:55:06--> 00:55:23

What do you guys get from this conversation? God we've nomadic speaks sort of Zulu Lhasa Salem, the province has sent him is beaming at him. He says, Have glad tidings or congratulations on the best day of your life, since your mother gave birth to you. And then

00:55:25--> 00:55:47

God with pneumatic wants to donate some of his money or all of his money in charity as part of his repentance. The Prophet SAW, I said, I'm says keep some of it, it's better for you. And that guy would be mad. He says, I don't know. I was saved by my truthfulness. So I hope that I'm going to speak the truth for the rest of my life. Very good, how serious it is to tell a lie. Very good. God numedica saved from that by his truthfulness. What else?

00:55:48--> 00:56:08

His job is worth more to him than all of his wealth. In English, we say put your money where your mouth is, it's easy to just cry and say, Oh, I repented, right? I'm not belittling it. But you know what? Imagine if, for example, every time you committed a sin, you committed to yourself that I'm going to when I repent, I'm going to put some money towards it. I'm going to do any of the $1,000 to data digital.

00:56:10--> 00:56:11

It might make you

00:56:13--> 00:56:21

more serious in your commitment. Right. But again, what is your Toba worth to you? What is it worth to you that Allah is good for gives you a sense? Yes.

00:56:24--> 00:56:31

A lot as you forgave him before he died. True. hamdulillah many years before he died, he revealed his repentance statement sorrows of Toba. What else?

00:56:33--> 00:56:44

Very good. So sometimes I remember hearing this from your mom, cilantro had years and years and years ago. He said sometimes the best thing that can happen to a person is to get caught.

00:56:46--> 00:56:53

Sometimes that's the best thing that can happen to a person. And I found that to be true. And and undeniably with gabion mediamatic. That was

00:56:55--> 00:57:07

also something very, very, very important. Pay attention to it. The prophets Allah said himself the Kaaba, very interesting sentence. What does he say? He says, Congratulations on the best day.

00:57:08--> 00:57:15

You know, if you were to just ask a person randomly, what's the best day of your life? Somebody might say, the day I got married.

00:57:16--> 00:57:20

The day I had my first child. The day I graduated,

00:57:21--> 00:57:22

the day I got divorced.

00:57:24--> 00:57:40

Lots of different things. But here the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is literally defining for us. What is the best day of any of our lives? And it is the day that Allah azza wa jal accepts your repentance.

00:57:41--> 00:57:45

The best day of your life shouldn't be lady Omen, Moon zoom, Iowa live.

00:57:46--> 00:58:24

From the day your mother gave birth to you, congratulations on the best day of your life. And so we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us experience the best days of our lives many many times in our lifetime. Allahumma Amin, God we've numerical, the Allah No, he's intending to give in charity. And then he added his own humility, or the Allah on who he says, I wish that I hope he says I don't know anybody who has been more truthful. Since my time we fast forward to now to the end of IBM pneumatic to him telling the story now, he's like, I don't know if anybody who's been more truthful since I said that to the Prophet SAW, I set it up. And I hope that Allah has again will preserve me and

00:58:24--> 00:58:30

protect me in what has come back. Now we get to the verses. Well remember way at the beginning.

00:58:31--> 00:59:00

Whenever we started this thing at 10am I'm just kidding. We started at like 5pm. But whenever we started, I said that my goal is for you. When you hear these verses again, even though you've heard them so many times. Now, because you've lived with God moving ematic these verses you are going to when you read them, when you hear them, you are going to have a different reaction to them, because you've understood the context, and you live with the Sahaba a little bit. Okay, so Bismillah so this is sort of the Toba

00:59:02--> 00:59:10

Okay, now come the verses where Allah azza wa jal revealed that accepted the repentance of God with pneumatic Can you guys see it on the full screen?

00:59:11--> 00:59:28

his mother abandoned him Leah Tubu in Allah who was walking

01:00:14--> 01:00:38

this next verse right here. Allah azza wa jal summarizes the entire moral of this entire story. The entire story is summed up this verse right here hits you like a truck. It's so beautiful how the entire, like the lesson of this entire story is summed up in this next verse. Yeah, a human love Levine

01:00:40--> 01:00:50

our cool new ma saw the thing. That's it after all of that Allah as we just says, Yeah, you halogen duckula. Hakuna Masada

01:00:51--> 01:01:37

Oh you who believe fear Allah, and be in the company of the truthful. And that is how God in America safe. And then cab says about himself. He says Allah azza wa jal then described. He says by Allah since Allah guided me to Islam, there has been no blessing more significant for me than this truth of mine which I spoke to the pseudo Lasala lie they have set it up. And if I were to lie, I would have been ruined as we ruin those who had told lies for Allah describe those who told lies with the worst description he ever attributed to anybody else as he sat down in the Revelation. So the question here becomes What did Allah reveal about those ad people who made excuses to the private

01:01:37--> 01:01:41

satellite and send them and they got off scot free? What did Allah reveal regarding them?

01:01:43--> 01:01:57

So yeah, Holly funa we learned he la comida kala to lie him literally one home for the war I'm home in Asia so while home Jehan

So they swear to please you, but even if you become pleased with them, Allah azza wa jal will not be ever pleased with the disobedient people. So we come to the conclusion now of the story of copy of pneumatic

01:02:29--> 01:02:37

it's a story of truthfulness as a story of patience, perseverance, repentance. And I wanted to just end with the last few lessons from this section here.

01:02:39--> 01:03:00

We talked about spending wealth as part of repentance, that this is something about this habit of the law on whom they practice without when they would, they would spend some of their wealth and this is a lesson for us as well that you knew committed sin, you want to intend to rectify yourself, the province of the lightest and instead of sadaqa, to Berhad. That sadaqa. Charity is proof.

01:03:01--> 01:03:20

it testifies to the truthfulness of a person, what are you willing to commit? Secondly, here something very interesting is that kind of in your mind, he says, since I made the pledge sort of Sula, send them he says, Since I accepted Islam, Allah so they never gave me a greater blessing than that moment of truthfulness to the Prophet salallahu sin.

01:03:21--> 01:03:35

And so that made me think when we think about our greatest blessings, what are the blessings that we think about if you ask a person who just count their blessings and we say that all the time, count your blessings, count your blessings, we think about things like the prayer, we think about

01:03:36--> 01:04:14

our health, we think about money, we think about our family, we think about all these things. But when was God when Marcus considering a moment, just a moment where he sat in front of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he considered that to be one of he considered to be that his greatest blessing after the blessing of Islam. And so do you think about a moment where you had as a blessing, you know, even an evening like this, three hours that you spent four hours that you spent reading a hadith, this may be worth the world and everything in it on the Day of Judgment. You don't know. You know, think about a blessing like something like Subhan Allah Surah Fatiha something seven

01:04:14--> 01:04:30

verses, we memorize them when we were kids, we don't even remember most of us when remember I sort of did fight How would you have no idea? But yeah, the private cellulitis and and tells us that there is nothing like sort of the fights in the Quran, or the Torah, or the NG, or there's a bull, there's nothing like sort of the fatter.

01:04:31--> 01:04:43

That means are all of those great profits that we read about, they never had anything that was similar to sort of the fatter all of them better than us. The 70 million Musa do I need to sit down and nibble at him and the manure

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

and we recycle the right out of the tip of our tongues. And we never think man, what an incredible blessing that Allah has we did has gifted me with that and saw the flock and AYATUL kursi and all of these, and the Quran and Islam

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

And all of this is just incredible blessings, you know might have been a hot topic

01:05:05--> 01:05:14

when the Persian Empire fell, and the wealth of Kisara was brought to Medina and it was brought to the message of the prophets of Elijah send them

01:05:16--> 01:05:49

and the Sahaba of the Allah and whom we're celebrating and they were excited, and one of the servants of aroma while the Allah on who he recited the verse and he says could be probably lie will be Ramadan for Bidadi Camillia fragua, hallo me Maya, my own. It says by the fuddle of Allah, the Grace of Allah and His mercy, let the believers rejoice. It is better than everything that they gather. So he's saying that this is the, the the Grace of Allah, this is the Mercy of Allah. So let us rejoice Wilfredo me my own god whom are corrupt had the mean Mm hmm when

01:05:50--> 01:06:22

he says this isn't the this isn't the Grace of Allah. This isn't the Mercy of Allah. This is what the people gathered this wealth here. This isn't Allah's mercy. This is what the people gather the Mercy of Allah as it is Islam, the Grace of Allah as we had as the Quran, the ability to to, to know Allah azza wa jal. And these are favours that you and I are swimming in. We're drowning in them, and we forget about them. The story of God whooping Matic is the story of truthfulness. And it shows us also the importance of friendship, how capital, the law and who was saved by his friendship.

01:06:23--> 01:06:51

And the last thing that I want to mention a lesson from God moving nomadic is that if you do the right thing, then be happy. Gabi mediamatic went through 50 days of difficulty, but he was content why, and he was eventually incredibly happy. In fact, he counted that moment with Rasulillah Salam as the greatest blessing that he ever received even though it came with 50 days of difficulty why because he was principled

01:06:52--> 01:07:05

of overcoming the law and has an amazing statement Allah I love it so much ever since the first time I heard it it just captured my attention and my imagination because it shows the perspective of the Sahaba you guys ready for it?

01:07:06--> 01:07:33

I'm telling you it's amazing. It's going to be so simple on you guys are going to be like man, I wish I wrote that down and before I leave somebody's gonna walk up to me and say what did aboubaker say again? Can you help me write it down so I'm telling you right now if you got quick fingers either that or you're gonna need to boy your your eyes into my heart so you can memorize this quickly woken up in LA he got up and he gave a hotspot and he says uh my bad for inner hula here if you hate him by the WHO not Well, I shall official embeddable Jana.

01:07:36--> 01:07:38

Rub those rub those goosebumps back down.

01:07:39--> 01:07:53

He says in the hola higher if you're feeling bad the Hoonah when I shall officially embed the hula Jana, there is no good in any good that leads to the hellfire. And there is no evil in any evil that leads to paradise.

01:07:55--> 01:08:39

There is no good in any good. That leads to the hellfire. And there is no harm or evil in any evil that leads the person to paradise. On this side is paradise. And in front of it is a whole lot of things murder and starvation and imprisonment and, and fear and sadness and grief and illness and all of these things. And now we're working with Elon who says if this path leads you to Paradise, then there's no harm. And there's no evil in it. And in this side is the hellfire. And it's got money and fame and pleasure and happiness and popularity and all of that. And I'm working on the live says if this path leads you to the hellfire, then there's no good in that path at all. Right?

01:08:39--> 01:09:12

And it's the way that they used to view this world. And so all of the difficulties of the world became easier to handle. When a person realizes that as long as it's taking them to Paradise, and there's no problem. If it leads to Paradise, there's no problem. Right, beautiful. So this is some of what we wanted to share with regards to cotton in America. And I really, really, really appreciate all of you spending a portion of your time and ask Allah is the idea that he accepts from us, and that he accept from us our gathering here at the province level by they said to me he says that there is no group of people who gather in a house from the houses of Allah. They recite the

01:09:12--> 01:09:44

book of Allah together and they study it amongst themselves, except that mercy descends upon them and tranquillity envelops them or tranquillity descends upon them and mercy envelops them and the angels surround them with their wings and Allah as we had mentioned them in a company that's better their their company ask Allah azza wa jal to that he mentions us in his company and ask Allah azza wa jal that he make the best of our days, the day that we meet him, and ask Allah Azza to accept from us the little that we do, and to give us guidance and steadfastness in this world with all of the trials and tribulations that come with it, and ask Allah as we get together with the prophets

01:09:44--> 01:09:52
