Luiz Rodriguez from New York City
why they come Salaam

and to salaam aleikum to sadef Ali from New Delhi India.
So inshallah we'll be
now to our main session.
So now I did come in rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
This is session 57 be
a tow up
this is the name the ATF name, which we began looking at in our previous session 278 the acceptor of repentance the partner
and this is part two,
in terms of the Quranic location, at the word is mentioned 11 places in Accra
among them is a sub Hamdi Rob Baker was started here in who cannot awaba
so then exalt Him with praise to your Lord
and ask forgiveness of him, indeed, is ever Accepting of repentance. So instead of verse three,
linguistically up the word comes from the trial literal root ca while that toggle button
is the verbal now, it has three main meanings The first of which is to repent or to become penitent. The second is to abandon or leave to renounce. The third is to forgive or pardon.
The web is the present participle. In the file, intensive pattern from the standard present participle file.
Which in decree indicates frequency of repentance or repeated forgiveness.
relative to a lot of what is explained by Allah zali in maxidas, asna as meaning the one who repeatedly for
annotates the means of repentance for his servants. Time and time again by showing them His signs. And by catching their attention through scary experiences and warnings, until they become aware of the hideous nature of their sins and feel overwhelming fear which drives them to repent until Allah favors them and favors their return with this acceptance of their repentance, will levy Yakubu Tabata and a body
well yeah for Annecy at all. Yeah, Allah Mamata. fagu
is He who accepts repentance from his servants
their misdeeds and he knows what
he knows what you do. So assura
is in the file pattern, which in Arabic denotes frequent repetition. A terroir is someone who forgives you and keeps on forgiving you. As well as a tow up from the human perspective means one who constantly turns back in repentance.
In terms of application, according to have been by thoughts for principles.
In the previous session, we completed part one of session 57, in which we covered the linguistic aspects of the name a toe up
in detail, and most of the principle number one of the four principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of Allah, which were suggested by the 11th century and the Lucien scholar, Imam.
Ali even fell off and back Paul
was from Cordova.
In part two of session 57. We will be completing the three remaining conditions numbers five, six and seven, for the acceptance of repentance under the Divine Name, application principle.
And this session, we will also complete the remaining three principles of living bottles for proposed principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of the law.
So going back to Principle number one, adopt where applicable. Continuing, as we said in part A, the Divine Name at the web, the partner may be adopted and applied in two basic ways. The first is to understand the importance of repentance and to be repentant ourselves. And the second is to accept repentance of others, as accepting
as Allah is accepting of our repentance.
So the first way, being repentant, ourselves. The conditions for repent for acceptance of repentance,
continued from our previous session in which we covered the first four conditions. One being remembrance of Allah. Since repentance is a form of worship, and the main goal of worship is developing mindfulness of Allah. Repentance should have at its core remembrance of Allah.
The second principle was immediacy. The next step is to repent to Allah immediately without delay, as the level of sincerity and repentance can be measured by the time it takes to turn back to Allah.
The third was cessation.
One seeking repentance must have been abandoned the sin for which he or she is seeking payment, because without abandoning sin, repentance becomes a lifeless series of meaningless words and hollow rituals.
Principle number four was exoneration
that is of the principles of repentance. If the sin one seeks repentance for involves human rights of others, their rights must be full
field before a laws forgiveness can be earned.
Otherwise, as long as people's rights are not fulfilled, the scenario remains a conscious sinner and his or her repentance becomes meaningless.
Moving on now to our
remaining three principles.
The next number five is sorrow.
It is essential that the sinful person seeking forgiveness feel deep sorrow and regret for his or her transgression.
remorse is the foundation of the religious act of prayer, known as Toba, the core of Toba. Without it, repentance becomes a series of meaningless rituals devoid of any sincerity and substance.
sinners who repent without self condemnation, secretly relish the memories of their sins, while outwardly pretending to have given them up.
As long as the violations of Allah's law
are not given up inwardly.
The sinner will soon return to the sin. Consequently, Allah warned of both the inner and outer aspects of sin, saying cool in namaha Rama Robbie alpha hash Mahara min How am I button, say my lord has only forbidden immoralities What is a pint of them and what is concealed to Allah offers 33
Toba without the inner spiritual act of remorse will be devoid of consciousness
as well as fear of God
and thus, will more likely be for some materialistic goal. For example, a job position requires that that one holding it abstain from certain vices that may cause those who apply for it to hypocritically avoid these vices, while harboring in their hearts a secret love and desire for that.
Since such a form of repentance lacks the initial ingredient of sincerity, it will most likely be transformed into a sin and held against the perpetrator.
The primary role of regret in repentance was emphasized by the prophet SAW Selim in such a way as to leave no doubt about its significance. Even Martin quoted the companion Abdullah saying, Paul rasulillah
I told battle
net Miko Toba
net Miko. Tolbert when
I heard the last messenger say,
remorse is repentance.
When Michael's father asked his father, his father asked
the law the companion, did you actually hear a lot of messengers say
netatmo Toba? He replied, Yes.
That's the core.
There should also be a firm intent not to repeat the sin again. For the remorse to be real.
How can someone feel sorry about something wrong? They have done while planning to do it again, in the future. expressions of sorrow in such a case would only be a show for the benefit of others.
It could not possibly be due to a conscious recognition of sin and fear of Allah.
True sorrow will produce a strong and sincere desire not to repeat the cause of the sorrow. This does not mean that if someone repeats a sin, the original repentance was not sincere and was not accepted. It is possible for us to slip in times of weaknesses
back into the same sin.
But it would not be to the same degree as the original sin, nor should it take the same length of time to realize the sin.
remember Allah and to abandon it.
If one fails or falls back into the same sin
to the same degree, or to a worse degree,
the sincerity of the original intent
Repentance will then become doubtful, as it did not appear to have had any effect on the sinners spirit.
Principle number six, in terms of
repentance is righteous deeds. True Toba is not only expressed by an emotional outpouring of remorseful feelings from the heart, and words of sorrow from our lips, but it also needs to be expressed independent individuals subsequent actions,
we should be driven by our desire for absolution
to correct whatever is wrong, that we have done and make amends. Furthermore, a law promises to pardon those who are so inclined.
said, Man, I mean, I mean come Sue and didja holla. So metabolome in body
far as I know, for Rashi
any of you who does wrong out of ignorance, and then repents after that and corrects himself or herself. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. Surah Al anon verse 54. We should note according to even kefir, every person who disobeys the law does so in ignorance.
So this usage of the phrase out of ignorance doesn't refer to innocent ignorance, which will be excused by law. For example, if we didn't know that something was around when we did it, that would not be held against us, as it was done out of ignorance.
If the truth were sinfully, concealed, or lies disseminated to others, in order to cover up one sins, repentance must also be accompanied by an open declaration of the truth, in order for repentance to be valid.
In reference to those who hidden knowledge about Prophet Muhammad wa sallam and Islam, which was contained within the scriptures of the Old and the New Testament, Allah pronounces his curse on them, as well as the curse of the angels and humankind. Without exception,
inland Medina shabu wa slotzo
wellbeing for hula tubo la him or Anatole wobbu Rahim
except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident what they concealed. Those I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the merciful to Al Baqarah verse 160. Otherwise allows curse remains.
Real Toba will not only cause the wrongdoer to renounce the sin from which she is seeking absolution or she is seeking out solution. But it should also motivate him to voluntarily perform additional righteous deeds to make up for the sins as a lion form does that good deeds erase evil deeds.
Law states in the house are not the hipness say at that they can they crawl Exactly. Indeed good deeds erase evil deeds. That is a reminder for those who remember Allah Sora hood verse 140.
Spiritual change which takes place during true repentance should be translated into righteous actions as a positive replacement in the soul for the iniquity which it has abandoned
because of the importance of good deeds, to the process of repentance, Allah has included it among the conditions for pardon and release from the consequences of sin.
Allah emphatically states in the final revelation, woman tabo Amina Sania,
for in who we are to Ilan llahi metabo. Whoever repents and does good, has truly repented to Allah for fun.
well in the love of far rune, lemon tabo Aman, Pamela solly ha. So much.
Allah says surely I will repeatedly forgive those
Those who repent, believe and do righteous deeds and then accept right guidance. That's the promise of Allah.
So our authority to so for example, the acceptance of Islam is an act of repentance, when one turns from a life of error to the clear path of God. However, the prophet SAW Selim explain that the declaration of faith erases all previous sins, only if it is followed up by good deeds as prescribed by law.
Otherwise the Convert will still be held accountable for earlier sets up the live in mess around. He said, some people asked a lot messenger O Messenger of Allah, will we be held responsible for what we did doing? jahi Leah which is the period of ignorance prior to embracing Islam?
The browser seldom replied, whoever does good deeds in Islam will not be held to account but whoever does evil will be held accountable for both the time before Islam and after men x NFL Islamic lamb you have
mama Phil Jr. Haley
Bowman, Asara Phil Islam
after the bill, our one, one.
Furthermore, a lot of promises to reward those who repent and do righteous deeds with additional good in place of their past evil deeds, and grant them on top of that paradise as their ultimate reward. Allah says it lamentable. Armen Romulus ameland salejaw fula Aika you bet did a lot to say it him has an act, or can Allahu Allah for rahima except for those who repent, believe and do righteous deeds. Those are the ones whose evil deeds allow and replace with good deeds and allies after forgiving, Most Merciful.
Without such a positive transformation, the sinner sorrow and regret may merely lead him into a state of extreme depression.
And this weakened condition,
he would then become susceptible once again to the whisperings and prodding of the devils from within and without.
Ultimately, the forces of evil will likely cause him or her to fall into further transgression. Therefore, they sincerely repentant should deliberately seek out all possible avenues of righteousness to avail themselves
of the other laws grace as a result of generously multiplying the value of our good deeds. Allah said in the Quran, man job in Hasina fella who are shrew and salia woman job is say, yeah, fella, you jeiza in Missoula, for whom lie is lamone whoever does a good deed will have the reward of 10 while whoever does his sin, will only be recompensed likewise, and they will not be wrong. To al anon verse 160. Even a bad score to the buzzer sound I'm also saying,
whoever intends to do a good deed, but does not do it has one good deed recorded for him or her.
If they intend to do good and do it 10 to 700 good deeds are recorded for them.
While for he who intends to do evil, but does not do it, no entry is recorded. And if he does it, then it is recorded as one.
This divine favor of increase in the value of righteous deeds benevolently helps human beings erase their medicines
if they act wisely, ally informed us in the final revelation that indeed good deeds erase evil deeds.
So who'd verse 114, the prophet SAW Selim was also reported to have said it tequila hyphema couldn't
as I say, yeah, we'll have
time haha. Well Holly NASS before in Hazzard, the whole thing hasn't
Fear of law wherever you may be, and follow up your evil deeds with good deeds and they will erase them and treat people with good manners.
By following such a path, the chances of earning a loss forgiveness will be greatly increased. According to the final scripture,
Allah mandorla, some bad della,
first na, ba de su, for in ni or for Rahim, whoever does wrong and substitutes within the place of evil, truly after forgiving and most merciful.
We also have a series of expiating Islamic deeds.
The partner has also seen fit to forgive some of our sins by making the major righteous deeds which he divinely enjoined unbelievers, in order for them to enter Paradise, also a means of expiation for our sins. Since these fun foundational Pillars of Islam were primarily designed to train the believers in righteousness. It is only natural that when they are observed, according to the letter and spirit of the law, they become powerful deeds of the highest order, good deeds capable of cleansing the true believer of many, if not most of their sins. Consequently, expiating good deeds begins with the prayers and its precursor evolution will do.
ablutions for the five daily prayers have been generously made by at taba lotto up a primary means of purification from sin if they're done properly, and with full concentration and reflection. I've already quoted the province of Solomon saying, when a servant of God washes his face or face, every sin they contemplated with their eyes will be washed away along with the last drop of water.
When they wash their hands, every sin they committed will be washed away from their hands with the last drops of water.
And when they wash their feet, every sin towards which their feet have walked will be washed away with the last drop of water. So he or she comes out pure from all sins.
contemplation on the ablutions spiritual effect of purification erases sin while earning the believer immense reward for submission and obedience to a loss command. Just doing Voodoo earns us reward.
But on top of it, when we do the will do with reflection and contemplation and realization of the spiritual impact it is supposed to have on us, then that takes our do to another level.
As I said yeah, Valentina. amanu. Either come to mila sarathi pharmacielo would you have come for idea comb, El Mirage.
Oh believe is if you get up to make prayer, wash your faces and hands to your elbows, and
That's the command
but doing the command with that contemplation, that explanation which suppose I send them gave us takes it up to its highest level.
Second, is Salah, our daily formal prayers,
which were designed by a top a lot of the expats as powerful exfoliators of sin committed between them daily uncondition as before, that the prayers are themselves done with full concentration and contemplation. Not the prayers of the man that we have talked about on numerous occasions, who prayed and came and sat with the prophet SAW somebody told him to go back and pray because he hadn't prayed.
And he repeated that three times. Because the man was praying so fast, he couldn't have had any concentration in it. So the process has to slow him right down and show him that each movement has to be done with full dignity, contemplation, reflection,
from Ron reported on the authority of Earth magnified
Do you heard the prophet SAW some of them say,
Man atonement hoodoo Kama Amara Allah tala.
For Salatu almak to bat kuffaar, attune Lima, bainer Houma.
Oh lima beans.
They play the obligatory prayers of the one who properly makes will do.
As a law, the Exalted enjoined will be an expiation for minor sins committed between them.
The prophet SAW Selim began his message of Salawat, Salah absolution with proper Voodoo, it should begin with the best Mullah saying Bismillah Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. Most of us are not even aware of the strong prophetic recommendations for the best mela before we do. And so we make will do without even thinking about doing the Basma. However, there are many if not, most scholars, consider the pronouncement of the best mela priority will do highly recommended. They don't consider it to be obligatory. In the same way that making will do is obligatory for the validity of formal prayer. However, the recommendation is still very strong and worth considering seriously. Due to its
authenticity. promise I'll select Solomon said last a lotta lemon law will do Allah.
Allah will do a lemon Lammy of charisma law he died early.
The prayer of a person who does not perform will do
is not valid.
And the abolition of a person who does not mention the name of Allah in the beginning,
is also not valid.
It goes without saying that the prayer itself should be free from the nullifiers and done at a relatively slow space, slow enough to complete all the movements and pauses properly accompanied by proper contemplation and mindfulness of Allah.
So Latin Juma, our Friday congregational prayer,
itself, is that means of expiation for sins committed between them, if we do is done properly, and the sermon that the court is listened to attentively and the prayer is done with full contemplation and concentration, above her error report to the promised last element said mantova da for Arsenal who do
will fit Allah who my banner who were banners Juma was he added to selasa
woman mass and Hassan faqad law.
If anyone performs will do well, then comes to the fire prayer listens attentively to the sermon and keeps quiet his sins between that Juma and the next Juma plus those of three extra days will be forgiven, but he who plays with pebbles has caused disruption. The floor of the mustard is made from gravel during the process and lambs lifetime. Consequently, one who played with pebbles that is while the sermon the goodbyes going on, they're playing with the pebbles with their fingers on
that would distract himself as well as those around him by idle actions, or by the clicking sounds made by the stones. browser, Selim equated it to idle talk, which he forbade saying one should be quiet when the mom is speaking. The
purifying effect of sincerely attending and praying Juma every Friday is that it wipes away the sins of the previous week, plus an additional three days making it a total of 10 days of purification
and benevolent gift from a Tauber regime. The frequent most merciful Forgiver of since and on top of that is a large reward for our obedience to His instructions regarding Friday prayers.
Then amongst the obligatory deeds, which are x Peters is fasting in Ramadan
The 30 or 29 days of fasting every year in the month of Ramadan also erases since, according to Islamic teachings, if done sincerely for the sake of Allah and deliberately for one's own spiritual purification.
Unfortunately, today Ramadan has become a month of celebration and festivities. Focus more on feasting than on real fasting. However, I will Herrera reported that the prophet SAW Solomon said, Man sama Ramadan, he man and rocky saben whatsit, Allahu Mata Adam, I mean dombey all the previous Sins of anyone who fasts the month of Ramadan, out of sincere faith, while seeking his or her reward from their Lord will be forgiven.
Again, at the lab, the ever forgiving, has made fasting obligatory and almost it's over the age of puberty, we're able
to fast made it one of the five pillars of Islam,
whose ultimate reward is paradise doing all the five pillars as prescribed.
The reward is already paradise, but he also granted the month of Ramadan the power to erase previous evil deeds, if properly fasted.
Likewise pilgrimage to Mecca. Among the
expiating good deeds prescribed in Islam, performing pilgrimage, Hajj to Mecca, not only race earns the believers untold rewards for sacrificing their wealth for this once in a lifetime obligation. The web also made the hedge a major eraser of sins, when done from the heart
of a war era quoted Allah's Messenger saying, Man hijjah paddle baits follow me
while I'm here so Raja karma will adapt who omo.
Whoever makes pilgrimage to this house the Kaaba and does not have sexual relations with his wife in a state of
nor commit sins, in whatever forms
during the hatch will return sinless the way his mother boy. As children are born into this world sinless, he will return to that state,
minor pilgrimage to ombre likewise, from one ombre to the next, if done mindfully and not ritualistically.
It is a major eraser of since I've already reported the bouncers element saying alarm rattle lol amaravati kuffaar, attune Lima, Banda Houma, Mahajan, my Brewer, les sallahu Jessa one lol Jana This is done between two cameras are expiated by them, and the reward for a blessed Hajj is none other than paradise.
the common practice of doing multiple rituals
of Amara This is just a side note.
Especially after Hajj you know people go out and run and aim back and forth back and forth. You know in a day they may do five six different ages with honors I you know they've gone for Hajj, people asked to make extra mega O'Meara for me this when I was making oma for me songs on some of these Okay, we'll do all of these arrangements they made maybe people were paying him to do it or whatever. But after the Hajj is over, then they go running outside of the boundaries. And just coming back in and out in the culton in multiple armrests repeated without any kind of reflection or,
you know, thought or just ritual checking is this ticking them off, or she is for the people that asked or paid or whatever. This is of no value.
Whether for the one doing it, or for the ones to whom it's being done.
The last principle for repentance to be acceptable is the timeframe within a set
Pray. Despite a lot of words, infinite grace and mercy, is supreme justice has said certain times when repentance will no longer be accepted, in the same way that he said circumstances of its insincerity
and seeking forgiveness from other than Allah as reasons for its rejection.
The Times of non acceptance are mainly those times when a person has no other choice.
When repentance is no longer a voluntary act of faith, but a vain last minute attempt to escape the inevitable consequence of sin
that begins with the individual's death.
At the time of death, Toba made
as a means of absolution
which is accepted throughout our lives is no longer accepted. At the last moment when death is already upon us.
At that point, regret and sorrow will have no avail. All attempts that repentance will be rejected a law justice issue in crystal clear terms as follows. Well, I set it over to little Medina Yama, Luna say it had the Hagia moon mode.
There is no repentance for those who continue to do evil, until death comes upon one of them and he says, indeed, every now repented,
need to total.
Nor is it for those who die in disbelief. I have prepared for them in most previous punishments when this adversity. Prophet Muhammad wa sallam was reported by the live in Alma to have reiterated laws words with the additional clarification in the law.
layer to Ben toe butter Abdi my lamb your
alarm most great and glorious will accept His servants repentance until his death rattle begets
this death rap Lord is it occurs when a dying person is no longer able to swallow, cough or otherwise clear saliva and mucus from the back of their throats. Because of increased secretions in the respiratory tract. The sound varies, but it's commonly a crackling wet noise that is amplified as the person reads. In some cases, it might sound like a soft mourning with each breath, or a very loud gurgling or snoring sound. The death rattle signals that death is near. On average, according to the medical profession. Usually, people live on for 23 hours after the death rattle begins that sometimes they don't it's quicker, it's faster. Sometimes it's more than 23. But most commonly it's
around 23 hours max.
The point here is that we should not wait until we are caught unawares to seek repentance. People can become sick at any time and die from their sicknesses. No one knows when they're going to die until the time comes. Consequently, we should repent sincerely and completely now and not procrastinate until we are caught later when we least expected it.
The other major timeframe issue is the last day
when the science of the last day begin appearing with the rising of the sun in the West. At that time declarations of faith by this believers will be
the souls of all the believers will have been taken just prior to the Western sunrise and only the faceless will remain alive in this world. I've already quoted the browser sentiment saying men taba Camilla and toddlers Sham soo min mother Rebekah. taba Allahu
Allah will forgive whoever repents before the rising of the sun, from its place of setting from the west.
The time of the Western sunrise is one in which people will begin worshipping the ancient Arabian idols of a Latina Loza.
The angel the Antichrist would have already appeared and been killed by Prophet Jesus, the garden the May God would have come
Gone at that time according to the province last, a sweet fragrant breeze will take the souls of everyone who have had even a mustard seeds weight of faith leaving in the world, only those who absolutely have no faith at all, a lot of protect us from being among them.
The second principle of we will not call was to confirm where the name is unique and an afterthought.
Ultimate forgiveness and pardon is the right and ability of Allah tala alone, priests and rabbis shapes etc cannot give absolution from sin to sinners.
Allah said to Adam, Ron,
well Edina either fibrofatty certain Alamo anfisa home vacarro law has done Pharaoh Lydon OBM. Well, Mayor feroza nouba illa Allah, those who having done something shameful or having wrong their own souls, remember a lion immediately asked for forgiveness.
And who can forgive sins besides a lot?
Sure, Allium Ron, verse 135.
forgiveness of sins to others. The right to forgive sins reached the point where
of the Roman Catholic Church,
were writing out documents called papal indulgences.
People were paying money for these papers, which was time and stamped by the Pope, which says whoever bore this document has got a guaranteed place in Paradise, all sins from
that was rejected by the Protestants led by Martin Luther and movement, but still, it remained amongst Catholics until
many years later when it was finally stopped.
Within most branches of mystic movements among Muslims, the Christian concept of Gods in accessibility to the common man due to the magnitude of their sins, has also taken
according to mystic teachers, the Savior figure represented by the leading so called saint
who occupies the fictitious Office of an alpha always called in order to see
the greatest source of soccer of health.
It is believed that you to the house elevated status, he is capable of shouldering a portion of the sins of the believers. Thus, in times of distress or need mystics and their followers openly calling these fictitious saints by the titles or names like more shady, I'm the father calling out Yeah, the father against me. Well, the father saved me, believing that they can actually save them.
This state of degeneration of faith was prophesied by the province was random and quoted by Ambleside and Qadri saying,
you will follow the path of those before you inch by inch step by step so much so that if they you entered a sorry, so much so that if they those who came before you, enter the lizards hole, you will follow them in there also. The Companions asked on messenger of Allah. Do those before us referred to the Jews and Christians? Because I'll send them replied who else is not them.
Therefore, in order to confirm Allah's uniqueness, as the only one able to pay the sins, we must reject all claims where pardoning sins are attributed to human beings, angels or the jinn.
This is not to say that Islam teaches that salvation may only be attained through man's works. Such a concept is totally false as it negates God's role in humankind's destiny altogether. salvation by accumulated deeds alone is the basis of karma, the principle of karma in Indonesia and its options. The karma being the total sum effects of past actions. Why are you in problems in your life now?
Because of your previous slides added up, bad things you did, added up. And that's why even state that you are, of course this led to other claims, you know where they claim, for example, in the VEDA chango Jia that those whose past deeds have been good will be reborn in the womb of a Brahmin woman.
That's the highest cast of the major casts, whereas those whose deeds were evil will be born from the womb of an outcast woman.
underclasses castes, we're not allowed to even enter the temples, much less read the religious scriptures. So in Islam, we don't have this karma is out of the question. Originally with the religion of Islam, religion of Allah
teaches that it is only by the grace and mercy of God, that anyone will actually attain paradise, as the Lord said in the Quran itself. Well Lola Fabiola aleikum wa rahmatullah who Mazza calm income when I had him about
were it not for a loss, grace and mercy on all of you? None of you would have ever become terrified. But a lot of purifies who need pleases and all hears and knows all surah Noor, verse 21.
Abu huraira and Ayesha both quoted Allah as messengers further emphasizing this reality saying
lanyard hole I had
land use him I had agenda amanu agenda.
Basically, none of one's good deeds will be sufficient to take them to paradise the companions asked not even you all messenger of Allah.
And the prophet SAW send them said
wala Anna dilla and yet, and yet Ahmed nee, Allahu
Not even I unless Allah bestows His mercy and favor on me.
So there is, however a direct link between faith, righteous deeds and divine grace. Allah's mercy is not arbitrary in such a way that it would cause a disbelieving evil wretch to enter Paradise, while causing a righteous and noble believing soul to enter hell. It's not that Allah just says any meenie miney Moe this one goes to hell, Eeny, meeny, miney, moe, this one goes to by that that's totally
Such a state of affairs would deny human free will and make the Day of Judgment meaningless, allows wisdom and justice work in harmony with his grace and His mercy.
There is an aspect of his infinite mercy which covers all creatures deserving or undeserving. Though the greater part of His mercy is reserved as grace from for the righteous believers in the next life.
The third principle is to have hope where there is a promise. The Divine Name at the word the partner is a name full of promise. It promises the believers that despite their many sins, Allah will forgive them, as long as their repentance is sincere.
all believers repent to Allah with sincere repentance Yanina amanu tubu in Allah He Toba 10 nasu
your Lord will remove your misdeeds from you and admit you into gardens with rivers flowing beneath
him I'm even Kathir explained that the sincere repentance though but and not so hard, is true firm repentance capable of erasing the evil deeds preceding it, unable to mend the shortcomings of repenting persons, while encouraging and directing them to abandon the evil deeds which they were or are engaged in.
belief in Allah as atewa Bonanza far because the Fargo laugh here for these are sharing elements of forgiveness without terroir.
This belief in Allah
That he covers our sins,
keeps the personal hope for forgiveness alive in the hearts of the believers.
The fact that he is constantly covering us, constantly forgiving us, this gives us hope. It was just a one time thing, then you missed it, you're finished, then it's easy to lose all hope. However, we must simultaneously be aware that the hope for pardon doesn't become an excuse to commit for the sins. Because the laws forgiveness is dependent on the spiritual effort on the part of the sinner to be sincerely repent in thought words and deeds. The principle governing the sin repentance sin repentance chain, is the fact that Allah created human beings in the gym, knowing full well that they will constantly commit sins. Based on that fact. Then the best among sinful jinn and humans
will be those who repent most often.
And that is why they sell themselves.
khulumani Adam for Paul Walker kind of football in a tower Boone, all of Adam's descendants continually commit mistakes and the best of those who regularly commit mistakes as those who regularly repent.
And in order to further illustrate this point, and strengthen our hope, and allows forgiveness, the prophet SAW Selim informed us that our sinful state was preordained, according to a laws plan.
He said, If you did not commit sins, Allah would have swept you out of existence and replaced you by another people who would commit sins ask them as forgiveness, and he would forget that
prophet SAW Selim was quoted by Anna Sydney Malik also as saying,
in a simile between a loss happiness, and those who are repentant. Allah is more delighted with the repentance of his servants. Then one of you who suddenly finds his camel, laden with supplies after losing it in a barren land.
Lost promise to forgive sin and his pleasure regarding the penitent should cause us to turn to Him in repentance regularly.
In order to further stress its importance. The prophet SAW Selim himself instructed us all to repent, and made an example of himself stating that he personally did so more than 100 times daily. The eyewitness to louella law he for any a tubal fill the Omi la he may at tomorrow, people repent to Allah for indeed I seek His repentance 100 times a day, some narration said more than 70 times.
The last of the principle the fourth principle of giving a thought is to have fear where there is a warning,
warning not to forget a law. This is what is there as there is promise and hope.
In Allah being the ever forgiving, and they will remembrance of Allah is a necessary factor for us to earn the forgiveness of Allah.
Forgetting Allah now becomes a great evil that we should be aware of, and we should be aware,
there is no direct warning in the Divine Name Oktober.
As is often the case of names which describe noble and praiseworthy attributes of generosity, kindness, mercy and forgiveness. However, for human beings and the jinn to achieve the attribute of being toward constantly repented, and pleasing to Allah, they have to remember Allah often.
On the other hand, if we become neglectful and forget Allah, we are warned of very serious consequences. The greatest tragedy that can happen to us in life is that we turn away from the remembrance of Allah. For when we forget Allah we degenerate into slaves of our own base desires, whose lives become characterized by evil and corruption. When our other and decree for in Allahumma acertain banca whoever returns away from my remembrance will have a wretched life. So Taha raised 124 Satan's goal is to cause humans to forget
God in order that they will be more easily tricked into falling into sin and become one of his followers. However, a lie expose Satan's plot clearly in the final revelation, saying, Satan has gotten the better of them, and cause them to forget the remembrance of Allah. Those are the party of Satan.

remembrance of Allah is stressed because sin is genuinely committed, and allies forgotten.
The forces of evil operate most freely when mindfulness of God is lost. Consequently, satanic forces always seek to occupy people's minds with irrelevant thoughts and desires to make them forget about that. Once a lie is forgotten, people willingly join the most corrupt elements of society.
Laws who divine lies prohibited intoxicants and gambling primarily because they cause human beings to forget that the human mind and body easily becomes addicted to drugs and games of chance. Once addicted, our desire to continually be stimulated by them leads us into all forms of corruption and violence amongst ourselves.
Allah explains the satanic plan and warns us service their insidious world saying in the my readership on and up or by inoculum Allah Dawa wallbottle da feel hungry while Mesa were sunako man liquid Allah one Salah for hallen to monta hoon. Satan's plan is to incite emnity and hatred among you with intoxicants and gambling and hinder hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and regular prayer. Would you not then abstain? So I made a verse 91.
Consequently, humankind needs to remember God for their own salvation and spiritual growth. All humans have times a weakness, loneliness and desperation in which they commonly commit sins. They have no means of remembering God, they sink deeper and deeper into corruption, with every sin. However, those who follow the divine laws and obligations will be constantly reminded of a law, which gives them a chance to reflect repent and correct themselves. The final revelation
in the final revelation, Allah precisely describes this process.
Those who having done something shameful or having wrong their own souls, remember Allah and immediately asked for forgiveness from for their sets.

repentance at the ending of a gathering. The second prayer is the one of praise and repentance, which the prophets are seldom commonly said. And thereby recommended that it be said at the ending of our gatherings if possible. It contains words glorifying a law along with a renewal of our declaration of faith, followed by words of atonement, seeking forgiveness for anything, which was inadvertently or deliberately said, by those present and which may have been displeasing to Allah.

But says before getting up from that gathering Glory be to You, Oh Allah, and praise. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides you. I seek your forgiveness to Bulik and I repent to you,

As long as it does not become premeditated. This is me saying as long as this does not become premeditated meaning that we should not go to what we know to be a gathering of trash talk with the intention of participating in it and then covering our backs with this da such a deliberate disobedience will not be excused by this powerful prophetic law

The last question from ashes con.
study tips. What helped in learning Arabic during your university days? How do you keep studying even today?
May Allah bless you in both lives, I mean,
what helped me learning Arabic Well, before I went to study Arabic in Arabic, I read what I could have the books available in English, which explained the grammar etc.
and took my notes and try to absorb that information. So it made the study in Arabic easier. Also,
I tried to spend time around Arabs and listen and speak.
Also I got a tutor, one who wanted to learn English. So I taught him some English and he taught me Arabic. That was my dear friend.

Mohammed Arabia, sorry,
Mohammed, the fourth chapter of beer, which is spring, but Ahmed robbia, the fourth.
So these were
tips. I also bought children's books, where the languages simpler and easier to read to
strengthen my Arabic in the early stages.

keeping study to studying today well, by continuing to teach,
I have to learn.
So that's the motivator to continue to study, to research, to read to listen to lectures to
hold classes, etc. All of that the teacher
