smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali he was happy he he crying. All praise is due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all those who follow his Sunnah and follow his way, follow His guidance until the last day, respected brothers and sisters in Islam, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Today inshallah, who tyna we are going to explore a number of hadiths, a number of prophetic traditions that MMO now rahima hula huhtala included in a book he called or in Ohio entitled kita kuttabul is the foreign key tabel is the fair
and that is the chapter or the book pertaining to forgiveness. allistic far
means forgiveness. So a person who is who asks Allah subhanho wa Taala to be forgiven, he is a monster Pharaoh He is the one who is the practitioner obviously afar is a monster fear and
mmm no Rahim Allah, Allah, He opened up with this chapter on seeking forgiveness. And he mentioned or he listed a number of yet a number of verses to do with istighfar
and he begins with an area Allah subhana wa tada says was tough for lithium beaker one minute one minute
and seek forgiveness for your sins for your them.
Now leave them bigger Oh, here he says lithium beaker
as you know, our sins.
And we know that sins by nature are very destructive.
They are very bad for your Eman. And so a person's Eman decreases when he is committing or engaging in sin.
And the more a person does in terms of spiritual exercises, such as salette and cm and sadhaka and is the foreign recitation of the Quran and all the other things that istan promotes
then that builds the men. So we believe as Muslims that Eman increases with good deeds and decreases with since. So it's very important to eliminate since to detoxify our bodies from sin and from transgression and to purify our souls.
And one of the best ways to purify our souls
is through is to purify our soul to purify our hearts to purify our Eman is through his default seeking forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada. So in this verse, insert Mohammed verse 19, was that the pharaoh leave them bigger and ask forgiveness from your sins and for the believing males and females so Muslims that only think about themselves, but they asked Allah Subhana Allah to forgive the sins of their brethren. Whether they are males or females. The next verse that's mmm no Rahim Allah tala included was tough, it was doesn't fit Illa in Allaha cannot afford foreign rahima there's a command here and imperative. Seek and seek the forgiveness of Allah. Certainly Allah is
Ever of forgiving, Most Merciful. So one of the attributes of Allah subhana wa Taala
is that he is he is one who forgives, he forgives all the time can have a foreign rahima and that he is most merciful. So again, there is a command in the Quran for us to be making a difference to be asking forgiveness at all times.
I'll mention another area that emanuela we included here. He said he mentioned what Mr. fury in a bill as how this is in Allium Ron. He mentions here when Mr. Farina bill as how those who perform is defined during the period of suhoor. During the period just before the budget pray this is known as the suhagra period in Ramadan. We
Wake up during this period, to have our pre dawn meal as to who.
So, this is a very Blissett period and this is the period in which Allah subhanho wa Taala descends to this heaven in a manner that befits His Majesty. And he asks, who is seeking forgiveness? Who wants something who is wanting to repent? So, so one of the, the best things that Muslims can do is to wake up during the third part of the night and make us differ, because Allah Subhana Allah in this verse is praising is praising those who make is different. What will as Harry will as Harry? Oh, he says what Mr. Fairy novelists have, and those who perform is different during the period of Soho.
Another verse that he included Allah subhanho wa Taala says, woman urine and so on, we have Lim nafsa, who Summa yester ferula, Eg de la HA, HA foreign rahima that whoever does a sinful act suit, a bad act, an evil act? He said, woman Yeah, man, Sue, and we have limb nafsa who, oh, he oppresses himself. You see, when you commit a wrong, you have oppressed yourself, because now you are going to be depriving yourself of a blessing in this dunya or a blessing in the hereafter or a blessing in both who've committed oppression against yourself. So your limb nafsa who through my stuff, but then he follows it up with his Jafar. So the one who commits a wrong or oppresses himself, but then makes
his default by saying a statue law as the federal law, our law I seek your forgiveness.
Allah subhanaw taala says yejide law has a full run Rahim and he will find that Allah subhanho wa Taala is her food. He will find a lot of forgiving, so he's always forgiving others. Her foreign rahima most merciful, Most Merciful.
Yet in another area. Another area that a man will know where Rahim Allahu taala included, he said when Latina either fallu fisherton, our varnamo and fusa whom zaccaro la ha festival farolito lubi him why many years fieros Nova in La la, when am you Saru island with whom Yana moon and those who when they have committed a fair share? Now a faculty share is an extreme evil. A faculty share is a very wicked deed. And the fact they share here is when for example a person commits adultery, or fornication in a factory shop.
So those who commit a fashion show, or they wronged themselves with evil, remember Allah so they remember that Allah subhanaw taala is judging them that they have committed a wrong against Allah subhanaw taala they remember Allah and what did they do and they asked for forgiveness
for their sins, and none can forgive sins, but Allah and do not persist in what they have done while they know. So the condition is that they don't persist in that sin. And we know that when a person commits an act of sin, and they want to repent from that sin that there are schroot there are conditions for the acceptance of your repentance. Number one, you should stop doing that sin.
So if you are not praying, you should start praying. If you are drinking alcohol, you should stop drinking alcohol. If you are committing Zina, adultery or fornication, you should put a stop to this. That's the first condition. The second condition is that you regret what you have done, you should not be proud of the sin that you did. So you should have remorse and should have regret. The third condition for Toba for repentance is that you intend not to do it again, that there is a firm intention that you will not do it. Again. Another condition for the acceptance of your tober of your repentance. Number four is
that you do so before it's too late. If you are dying and you repent, this is not an this is not accepted. If the sun is rising from the west, and coming to sit in the east, then this is it is a period of time whereby it's not accepted us
Your repentance your Toba will not be accepted. And when it comes to the rights of others, you must give back what is due to others. You must give back what you have taken from them or that you haven't given back that's not rightfully yours. The there are schroot there are conditions for the acceptance of your repentance that have to be met. And of course at all times you must be sincere. Now remember no we Rahim Allah, Allah.
Next, he goes on. And he mentioned a number of hadiths to do with is to have to do with stuff.
So, the first Hadees basically is teaching us that the ideal Muslim he makes so far throughout the day, that is still far isn't only limited to when you have actually committed a sin, but that you turn must be moist when it comes to istikhara. And the evidence for this for this is the hadith of a ver el moosonee Robbie a loved one who that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in nahu llevan while Appleby were in need last through la familia me me at Amara. The prophet SAW Selim, he said sometimes I perceive a veil over my heart, a veil over my heart,
and I supplicate Allah for forgiveness 100 times in a day. So here we have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who is the best of mankind, a prophet of Allah. Allah has an abbey and a rasuna I Prophet and the messenger, he is the seal of the messengers, and yet he himself consistently
according to this hadith 100 times, is seeking forgiveness and asking Allah subhanho wa Taala
for forgiveness and another narration. We know that he says it at least 1770 times a day 70 it's the hadith of Abu whoever the loved one who are the furnace, Buhari. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Well law he makes an oath Biola will law he in the US through law to boo la fille. Yami Apsara mean Sabrina Mara, I swear by Allah that I seek Allah pardon is too far, and turn to Him in repentance more than 70 times a day, more than 70 times a day. If this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is has a pure heart and a pure mind and a pure soul. The best of creation seeking is therefore 70 times a day. How many times should we be seeking is too far in a day?
No, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam that Allah subhanho wa Taala
he loves those who seek forgiveness.
After having committed a sin, He loves it when those people who commit sin they asked for repentance. And this is based on the hadith of Abu hora de Allahu Allahu Akbar is also found as a Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, well let the Neff CBI de lo Lam to Cebu that they have Allahu taala become, what am I becoming? Use ni buena Fiesta, Fiesta furon Allahu taala. For your for your fellow. But the one in his hand my soul is if you do not commit since Allah would replace you with the people who would commit sins and seek forgiveness from Allah and Allah will certainly forgive them. So this hadith My dear brothers and sisters in Islam does not mean that
Allah subhana wa Taala does not mean that Allah likes disobedience. Not that Allah likes disobedience. But Allah knows that, that we will part of our nature as human beings, that we will commit sins, that we will make mistakes and our loved ones for us. When we do make those sins He wants us to turn back to him in repentance and seeking forgiveness from him. And so the aim of this hadith is to emphasize the importance of seeking forgiveness, forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, we also know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one sitting in when he would be sitting down, he would say a specific is different. So it isn't just saying I stuck through
the law or our law. I asked you for your forgiveness or our law. I turned back to you in repentance, but
There are actual wordings that we are encouraged to memorize and to articulate throughout the day, throughout the day certain wordings that we should be aware of as Muslims who loved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who want to mimic the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam who want to emulate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are certain wordings that we should memorize and we should implement again, part of moisturizing our tongues with is differ.
And we have in this text Hadith, one of those wordings, and that is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this abnormal with a loved one Houma. Carla could NEMA con Nana do Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Phil match the silver at me at Amara. Even Omar is saying we would count in one sitting Phil Madras and we're hit 100 times the following phrase. What is it? The prophet SAW Selim would say probably a fairly what to byla Yeah, in
a fairly what to ballia inaka into a web of Rahim. So he would say Rob be fairly What does that mean? Robbie is a fairly means my load probably is fairly. Can you forgive me? Forgive me.
What two by the year and Pardon me? Okay, and Pardon me? Indeed, you are the oft returning with compassion and ever Merciful in Naka at the web. So one of the names of Allah is at a web at the web is the one who repents. The The one who repents the the sins of the one who is repent for who is Oh, he's asking for repentance.
And he's a Rahim, another attribute of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that He is the Most Merciful. So a very important to add to your collection, inshallah huhtala to your collection of his different supplications and that is again, rubbish. Thirdly, what to buy the year in Africa, and the world around him in
the world around him.
We move on now insha Allah who Thailand to another very powerful, another very powerful supplication that we should add to our collection of as God, our collection of supplications This is the hadith of Ibn Massoud, or the loved one who Paul tala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said man, Carla, whoever says a stone through a stone through LA and la de la ilaha illa who will hire you will pay you more to boo La
la la de la ilaha illa who will hire you will pay you more to LA whoever says this who fear at who fear at Lulu who were in Canada for Amina Jaffe, who ferret Zulu who were in Canada called Farah Mina Jaffe. So whoever says this to our which means I seek the forgiveness of Allah. Nun has the right to be worshipped but Allah the EverLiving the ever living which is and Hi, Alka yom,
the self sustaining were to boo LA and I turned to him and repentance. Whoever says this he sins will be forgiven even if he if he should have run away from the battlefield. So even if it was fighting in the cause of Allah, and he turned his back if he runs off the back battlefield now by the way, this is a this is a major sin in Islam. At one Leo Mirza, when a person is engaged in a battle when a Muslim is engaged in battle, and he turns his back and he runs away. This is a major sin. But if a person repents through these words, Allah Subhana Allah will forgive that sin, of course, provided the person is also sincere, and he meets the conditions of the Toba and then he
never intends to do that again. Okay. So by saying this, you will have this major sin even forgiven according to this hadith that is found in southern abida wood and Timothy and it actually makes this hadith meets the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim. It meets the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim as a man who no law has pointed out in in this hadith. So again, a very important supplication stuck through LA and la de la ilaha illa who will hire you why to LA and again, we write these down. We are
memorize them, we repeat them, we apply them and they become part of your everyday tongue, everyday speech. You know just like we say, you know a little light at the end of a Salah stuck through last the thrillist Allah Allahu Manta Salah Mikasa we get used to this, right? Likewise, the movie engage with these words of supplication and they're short, they're short, they're not lengthy. The more we do this, they become part of our everyday speech. It's just about us getting disciplining ourselves and getting into good habits and becoming consistent inshallah, who to Island. Now, another very important, another very important is too far to add to our ecfr collection system. So we've added
two? Now we're going to add one more. This is a very important one. And this one is so important that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he referred to it as the sacred. What does it mean? It means the master say it'll
say it is the master of stuffer.
Who knows it? Who knows the master of the * the master. Okay, let's listen to the Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's the hadith of shed dead if and else are the loved one who
he said say he is TFR and yaku lab and all
that he said, the best supplication for seeking forgiveness is to say
is to say Allah hum and terribie La Ilaha Illa and holla cottony Allah deca, deca mustard obika mincer Rhema Sonata Abu laka peenya motyka aleja boo be them be considerably faster for in a hula,
hula and very powerful do I say that?
You must memorize it, inshallah to Allah.
So, again, I'm going to say it again. Allahumma Antara B
la Illa Illa and Halekulani wanna deca
deca, deca masataka Rubik, Misha Rima sanuk, abou la cabina, Mata Kalia abou be them be severely for inner Who?
Ella and what does it mean? It means our law.
Our law, I love him and terapeak you acknowledging the

absolute command to hit absolute towhid Allahumma Antara de la ilaha illa and now here is the negation that there is no deity, there is no god that is worthy of worship except you La Ilaha Illa and Halekulani You created me. Well, Anna abacha and I am your slave. I am your servant. What

And then we then he said
boo laka beanie I matica Allah Yeah. And I acknowledge the favors that you have bestowed on me. I acknowledge the favors that you have given me a boo laka beanie ematic Allah boo boo me but at the same time I acknowledge my thump. I acknowledge my sins
So forgive me for in a hula nobody land Forgive me for none forgives the sins, except you except you your Allah. The prophet SAW Selim said, Man
manana. Hurry. Moo Kenan
Ha, whoever says it,
whoever says it, or says it during the day, with firm belief in it fermata mean yo me here cobla and UMC. Whoever says it
in the daytime, so say it in the morning. And if you die that day, if you die that day,
before the evening, for Who am in Arlington, he will be from the people of Ghana.
He will be from the people of gender. Can you see how important it is?
And he said, woman, Carla homina, Lael, whoever says it in the evening at night? Can you say that after one month, Paula homina Lane, well, who am walking on behalf that you say out of conviction? You say it with firm belief in what you are saying. That's why it's important to know the meaning also of this, because how are you going to be firm, if you're just regurgitating just words, but when you at least know the overall meaning, the overall meaning of this to this Vicar
Okay, then you are going to be more sincere.
So, he said, woman, Allah having a lady who are walking on behalf of Kabbalah and use behind he dies before the morning. He dies at night, for who I mean,
and he will be from the people of gentlemen.
So, the Hadith is found in Buhari, an authentic hadith, an important Hadith, a powerful Hadith that we should all learn, and more importantly, implement, implement in the day and implement in the night in sha Allah who Thailand
is still far, seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala is so important that to Panama, even after an act of worship,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he teaches us to ask for a stiffer and that is after the Salah.
You've just been engaging in or an and test be
and supplication and all these beautiful acts of worship that that are encaptured in the Salah. Yet after the solid The first thing that you say after assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah is what I stuck through more stuff through La La, la Manta Salah, omenka salon
de la la kromm.
So the first thing that you say is a stands for luck. That's how important is defined is why
because maybe in your Salah you and concentrating maybe in your Salah, you did some mistakes straight away you will ask you for
your Allah forgive me, forgive me for the shortcomings that I may have did in the Salah. This is based on the Hadith that is found in Sahih Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Hadith saraband are the loved one who cannot assume less Arsalan is an sarafem in solidarity he that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would finish from his Salah. mean Salah is the for Allah flf and he would say a start for luvfree times stuff for Allah subhanaw taala stuff for Allah
wirkkala Allah Allah whom and the Salah minca salam, tada tada de la Ekrem our LA, you are the best hour of peace and peace comes from you. Bless it, are you a possessor of glory and honor? Now, by the way with regards to this part of the supplication Allahumma anta salon, woman castellane Dr. Jalali Crump, there are some variants of this supplication that are not authentic.
So, if you just heard this from me, and you thought there was an additional word that was maybe missing, or somewhat different than the best reference is this narration Allahumma anta Salaam woman Caslen
Some people say what he lakeya Oh to sell him. There is no this edition is not correct. So Allah Hama, enter salam, wa minca salam taba? Dr. Yeah, Val Jalali, while Ekrem some some might even say
hyena, Robin epsilon, maybe you've heard this. This is also an addition that some may have added. This is an incorrect addition. So the best way when you finished your solid, straight away stuff for a lot of stuff for a lot of stuff for Allah Allahu manter Salam
Wyoming castellane tabarrok Tierra del Jalali when a crumb
and there are other words of supplications
we move on to the next inshallah huhtala the next Hadith that mmm no with a hymn of Allahu taala included, and that is another phrase to add to your
collection based on the heartbeat of our loved one found in Bukhari and Muslim.
She said cannot lie sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yukihiro anemia Kula Kabila mo T. sapan. Allah will be handy he stuck through la wa Tobu LA. She said that the prophet SAW Selim would say very frequently prior to his death, prior to his death, I would say this is the first especially those who know that they have a chronic illness that could be dying very soon.
People who have you know beyond the age of 60 given the problem and Selim said most of my most of my alma will live between 60 and 70. And a few will surpass this age. So one would want to be increasing. In this is different.
The prophet SAW Selim said, sapan Allah will be handy here I stuck through LA to LA, which means Glory be to Allah, and To Him belongs or praise. I beg forgiveness from Allah and I turned to him in repentance. Allah subhanho wa Taala. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, he forgives all sins, as long as you meet the conditions of Toba as long as you meet the conditions of repentance, even if you have sins as highest mountains, even if your sins they reached to the highest of heavens, Allah subhanaw taala forgives the sins. What's the evidence? The evidence is found in the Hadith, good See, Hadith Pudsey, whereby Allah subhana wa Taala he informs the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam of this this is a hadith that is created by swinerton mediums
Hadith ns for their loved one who are very beautiful, a very inspiring Hadith and it's an inspirational Hadith
especially for those who have committed so much sin.
And they think that Allah subhanaw taala won't forget this word, forgive their sins. Listen to this hadith.
He said Hadith Anis about their loved one who can semirara Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam APU. Allahu taala. Allah said
a son of Adam, in nica mother out any tiny
MCE and I mean kawana Alberti the son of Adam. I shall go on forgiving you so long as you pray to me and aspire for my forgiveness, whatever may be your sins. And he goes on and he says,
and he says well as
low ballers at Lulu buka and a summer, semester furutani photo locker Walla Valley, a son of Adam, I do not care even if your sins should pile up to the sky. And should you beg pardon of me, I would forgive you. And then he says he abna Adam,

He said, a son of Adam, if you come to me with an earth for an earth full of sins, and meet me not associating anything with me in worship, I will certainly grant you as much pardon as will fill the earth.
Can you see how Allah subhana wa Taala. He forgives, he forgives the sins of the children of Adam meaning me meaning you
even if they are as much as the earth if they occupied that as long as you don't associate any partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as you don't commit shift, and as long as you repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala especially by way of of is the firm
and the last Hadith that Imam will know Rahim Allahu taala. He included in
This chapter of seeking forgiveness is the hadith of urban armor for the Allahu anhu man. He said, Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said, You should give charity owner he said, addressing women, is it a women folk? A women?
said yeah, Mara Sharon Nisa kasatkina women, give charity,
give charity and be diligent in seeking Allah's forgiveness, because I have seen here he means, on the night of the Mirage, the night of the ascension to the highest heavens, that dwellers of the hill, that most of the dwellers of the Hellfire women, a woman amongst them, they said, a woman amongst them said.
Why is why is it that the majority of the dwellers of the hill are women. The prophet SAW Selim, he said you curse frequently and ungrateful to your husbands. In spite of your lacking in wisdom and failing in religion, you are depriving the wisest men of their intelligence. Upon this, the woman asked, What is the deficiency in our wisdom and in our religion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, your lack of wisdom can be well judged from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to that of one men, you do not offer salad for some days and you do not fast the whole of Ramadan, sometimes it is a deficiency in religion. This Hadith is found in Sahih Muslim.
Now, in this duration, certain weaknesses of the female six have been pointed out, which are natural and pertain to the woman's journey,
biology or psychology or embryology. Now, according to biologists, during and before menstruation and females thought process is affected, a female's thought process is affected.
And similarly, her posts and her blood pressure are also altered.
And for these reasons, the Quran has declared that when you have to appoint or choose witnesses among women, you should choose to in place of one men because of the Yani, the hormones, or the the state, the state, and when they get to this stage, before
and after or during menstruation.
Now the West, the West claims equality between the sexes, often here in the West talking about the needs to be equality.
And Islam is about equity. Islam is about being fair. But this equality when when the West talk about it, when talking about males and females being equal,
hasn't been established to date. And it's very evident today, whereby all of the most important posts occupied by males, and all the international policies are framed by males. Even matters that are related to women are decided by the men, even in the Western world.
What this hadith also alludes to, is that women should request forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala very often and be generous in charity. They should not show ungratefulness to their husbands and it should avoid backbiting and cursing others so that they may save themselves from the Hellfire inshallah who tyla I will conclude with this hadith and we'll leave it at this hadith shallow Tyler. There is one more chapter that mmm no we included which is
what Allah subhanho wa Taala has prepared for the believers in gender so mmm No, he has left the last chapter in his book to what Allah subhanaw taala has prepared for the believers in gender, describing gender and what awaits for the people
of Eman and taqwa in general. But in sha Allah who Tyler will leave that for a future lesson, and lots of panel who attend and knows best or sallallahu wasallam mama Baraka Island ebina Mohammed chisako manoharan Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
