Allah eucom aka, my brothers and sisters on this beautiful Friday the 12th of February 2021 I want to begin with something absolutely amazing. Actually, maybe I'll wait till the end when more people are actually are already logged in. So just to remind me at the end in sha Allah, you know to remind you of something that I was going to remind you of in the beginning, that's amazing and beautiful that started my day off or that I started my day off with today in sha Allah to add
on this day when the snow is falling, and it's a blessing from Allah subhana wa Jalla to see this snow falling down. You know, there's so many blessings from Allah on a Friday even more than the other days. It is a day of sending salutations and peace upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when we say Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed camera so later Allah but on him were early Ibrahima innaka hamidah Majeed or we can say Allahumma salli wa sallim, wa barik, ala Sayidina, Muhammad wa ala alihi, wa sahbihi, mehreen and so on and so forth. So there are many different ways that we can send peace and blessings upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in statement, and
that is what is encouraged from us. But we also see that the snow that's falling is another sign of extra mercy extra from a loss of Hannah water Allah for when it rains dry is accepted. So the rain that's falling now is falling in the beautiful form of snowflakes, not a single snowflake is the same as another every single snowflake is different than the other every end when you think of how amazing this is a loss of handling what Allah designed something so small, so minute that you would think that we would run out of ideas and we as human beings would run out of ideas to create different designs and different shapes for snowflakes. But Allah subhanho wa Taala has designed this
world is such to show us his power to show us his strength to show us his might and his his magnitude and his ability to do things and this is why we learn through the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala on Fridays as we've been doing for the last few weeks, this Friday in sha Allah huzzah Anna,
I really wanted to touch upon the name of Allah, Allah food which comes in the Quran approximately 9091 times, okay, so 91 times you'll find this name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Allah food at the acceptor of repentance, the one who accepts the repentance of those who repent to him, right, and
to tie in the name of a fool with some other names of Allah subhanho wa Taala that are relevant. I also want to touch upon a level, which is the old forgiving, which comes in the corner and five times out of a farm, which is also five times mentioned in the end, the ever forgiving, and
the ever accepting of Toba of repentance. And so, I know it's a little bit tough and there's a lot of names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it might feel as though they're, they're becoming too much for us to comprehend. But don't ever feel overwhelmed by understanding Allah subhanho wa Taala. By not overdoing it, you insha Allah hota Allah will be able to grasp more of an understanding of our Creator. So, a reminder once again, all of the sessions that we've done on the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala thus far have been recorded and we've been doing them on Fridays at the time of Juma Allah. So if you simply do a search on YouTube or Instagram or Facebook, you'll find them there
in sha Allah to Allah and you can go back and you know, look through those names of Allah subhanho wa Taala and refresh your memory in fact
I would encourage every one of us to do that. But today we're going to focus on a fool,
a fool as the acceptor of repentance, the one who accepts our repentance accepts our seeking of forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and as I mentioned, this comes in the Quran multiple times, okay? over 90 times mentioned in the Quran and of course many other times within the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
for example, Allah subhana wa tada says, way too long way to Obama, meaning I mean,
he and Allah subhana wa tada also says, What can unlock more alpha one?
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, yo fumo Nima Yeshua while you are the Yeshua waka
So, there are so many examples. I'm not going to recite 91 verses of the Quran to you. But we see that Allah Subhana which Allah says, we are to belong or Ll mininova. minute, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, you know, accepts that repentance that forgiveness and he forgives the ones from the believers, whether male or female, who reach out to Allah subhanho wa Taala what can aloha Flora Hina and the loss of hanway Darla is her for
the acceptor of repentance right over for rahima and ever so merciful, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us many of his strengths and abilities in terms of things that we see might apply to us in our lives. As we looked at in the last few weeks, I was able to see what we're doing. He's able to hear what we're doing. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows all that we're doing, and so on and so forth. He's the creator of the earth of Rob, he's the Lord that we turn to everyone turns to a loss of handle which either right as the Lord to be worshipped. But when we think of Allah subhanho wa Taala as a fool. Sometimes we think, well, that's not really a strength, or that's not really a power or an
ability or something amazing. But in reality it is. And we'll look at some examples and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
First of all, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said,
a law has said,
Oh, son of Adam, I forgive you, so long as you pray to me, and hope for my forgiveness. I forgive you, so long as you pray to me, and hope for my forgiveness.
Whatever sins you have committed, Oh son of Adam, I do not care if your sins reached the height of the heaven, as in the sky.
Then you ask for my forgiveness. I shall forgive you, oh, son of Adam. If you come to if you come to me with an earth load of sins,
and meet me associating nothing to me. I would match it with an earth load of forgiveness. A lot about let's go over this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this hadith is found in Solon, a Timothy, Timothy and it is greeted as Hasson Okay, so it is a good Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shows us the ability that a loss of Han with Anna has in forgiving our sins. But before we get into this, let's look at who we are. We as human beings, do we sin? Do we make mistakes? Do we pretend like we know we're not supposed to do something, but we still end up doing it at times? Yes. As human beings, we
Whether it is intentionally or unintentionally. Now, we've discussed the unintentional mistakes in the past, someone who did not know something was wrong, but they did it a loss of hanaway to Allah doesn't hold us account to things that we don't know of. So for example, if someone didn't know that something was not permissible within Islam, then they are not held accountable for that. But when we know that something is wrong, but we still do it, like I know I'm supposed to pray five times a day, but I still miss out on my prayers, or I know I'm supposed to pray that prayer by the end of a specific
time before the end of that specific time, but I intentionally choose to do something else. And I end up missing out on the time of my prayer, then that is a sin that we commit, whether we've wanted to do that from the beginning of the day or not, it happened. And we end up adding and adding and adding to all of the sins over our life. So many sins we accumulate. In fact, it is the small sins that the scholars say, will be the sins that take a person into jahannam, as opposed to the larger sins, because the large sins a person does, and they feel bad. They feel like oh, no, why did I do this? I shouldn't have done this. And they seek repentance and ask for forgiveness. You'll notice
people and you know, I go to prison. And I talked to inmates, and you know, do counseling and spiritual uplifting and motivation with them. A lot of those who have committed major sins within their lives, and now they're in a position where they feel what have I done? Why have Why did I even decide to do that with my life, they turn to online, despite being where they are. Allah subhanho wa Taala has the ability to forgive. But you'll notice that those who committed big sins, they realize there's no chance for me to change. And that's when a lot of the time people find Allah subhana wa Tada. And they turn to a loss of Hanoi to add, and they completely stop the things that they used to
do. And they change themselves for the better in order to be someone who will be accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada. So they no longer do those major sins. But those of us who walk around, we say things that we're not supposed to say. We talk about people in ways we're not supposed to talk to them and talk about them. Right? We do small things here and there like committing sins that you know, even though we say they're small, remember, a sin is a sin, which is a bad thing. It's really, really bad. But there are sins that are smaller that people will do regularly and get away with.
It is those sins that people will come before a loss of hanaway to add on the day of judgment with this massive, massive amount of sins, a load of sins, mountains of sins. And those will be the sins that we forgot to seek forgiveness for. Those will be the sins that we completely ignored in our lives. We, you know, yelled at someone that didn't do anything wrong, or we cut someone off and we ruin their day or we hurt someone in a way that they, you know, didn't expect. And we did it thinking, I'm gonna get away with this. My brothers and sisters,
we need to ask a lot for forgiveness of those sins.
We need to ask Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness of those sins. Do is still far seeking forgiveness from aloha food. Right? constantly be busy with the remembrance of Allah but also asking him for forgiveness. Some people will say Oh, just do some kind of law all day and do Alhamdulillah all day, which is good, because part of forgiveness of our sins is to follow it up with a good deed. When we follow up our sins with a good deed, then Allah subhana wa Jalla is pleased with those good deeds that he starts to erase the sins or forgive the sins of the past. So let's look at this hadith. Now. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we mentioned, he says, a law has said, Oh
son of Adam, I forgive you so long as you pray to me, and hope for my forgiveness, whatever sins you have committed. So when we commit a sin, and we turn to Allah, and we asked for forgiveness, Allah forgives us of those sins, whatever it is, that we've committed, he continues to say, Allah says, oh, son of Adam,
I do not care if your sins reached the height of the sky.
Then you ask for my forgiveness. I would forgive you. So even if the sins that we've committed, are added all together, piled up one after the other, and they reach the height of the sky. Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that he would forgive us if we asked for his forgiveness.
He continues to say, oh, son of Adam. And when we say son of Adam, this is in Arabic, the children of Adam, right? Both the men and the women, everyone, everyone who came from Adam alayhis salaam, right. Adam and her work. So how work came from
Adam as well, Allah Subhana, Allah created, you know that creation, we've done lectures on this before, we're not going to go over it again, but created Adam first, then how what and from them, the children started to come.
And so Allah says, Oh son of Adam.
come to me with an earth load of sins, and meet me, associating nothing to me, I would match it with an earth load of forgiveness a lot.
As in your sins, my sins, our sins as individuals as one person is the size of the entire Earth.
subhanaw taala imagine that every pebble outside represents a sin that we've committed in our lives. Every grain of sand represents a sin that we may have committed in our lives. Every snowflake that falls in sticks to the ground represents a sin that we have committed. Imagine, I'm not saying it is imagine that everything on this earth put together was like the size of the sins that we've made in our lives and we turn to Allah asking for forgiveness, without associating partners with him. Then Allah would match
that with forgiveness, as in he would forgive all of it. Now that shows us how awesome and amazing Allah subhana wa tada is when it comes to forgiveness. At the beginning of this lecture, we were thinking, Oh, but this isn't really a power anything amazing. It's basically just wiping away sins. No, the ability to wipe away those sins is only with Allah subhanho wa Taala no matter how large the amount of sins a person has a loss of Kanagawa to Allah will forgive them. And he says in the Quran, in the last 100 you the hipness in verse number 114 of pseudo hood in has entered you the hipness, say,
the good deeds that we do, wipe away the sins that we've committed, because Allah is Allahu Allahu is the one who wipes away those sins, right? He doesn't just forgive them, he completely removes them as though they didn't even exist. And so the all forgiving LFO wipes away those sins, follow up a sin with a good deed. And this is why as believers we encourage one another to constantly be as best as we can to help each other to go the distance in doing good deeds, height and soda caught not only financially, but smiling to others, being nice to others, understanding others speaking to people at their level, if you're talking to a child, you talk to a child in the way that they would
understand. If you're talking to an adult Will you speak to the adults in a way that they would understand and that is how Allah subhanho wa Taala will remove our sins that we've committed and placed their good deeds, place in the place of those sins, good deeds. We also see my brothers and sisters, another beautiful Hadith that shows us the strength that Allah subhana wa Taala has with regards to forgiving our sins. And this my brothers and sisters is a hadith that is found inside Muslim and so
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah the Exalted in glorious said, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, that all law said,
a slave committed a sin. And he said, so one of us commits a sin. And we say, Oh Allah, forgive my sin.
A stove of federal law, right or law, forgive my sin.
Forgive my sin. That's all we're asking Allah Subhana Allah to do, right? So Allah says, a slave committed a sin and said, Oh ALLAH forgive my sin. And Allah says, In return, my slave committed a sin. And then he realized that he has a rub. He has a Lord, who forgives the sins and punishes for this sin.
And then the second time, Allah said, again, he then again committed a sin and said, My Lord, forgive my sin.
He calls out to a law a second time. And Allah says,
my slave committed a sin. And then he realized that he has a dog who forgives the sins and punishes for the sin.
And then he said again, or law, forgive my sin.
And the law said, my slave committed a sin. And then he realized he has a Rob, who forgives the sin or takes him to account for his sin. I have granted forgiveness to my slave. Let him do whatever he likes. Allahu Akbar. Look at this.
Look at this.
Allah Subhana, which is telling us about the worshiper who commits a sin, then asks for forgiveness, then turns around and goes about their life and commits the sin and comes back to a law and asks for forgiveness. And a lot says that he forgives the sins, and then that person turns around and goes into their life and they commit this sin again, and they come back to Allah ask Allah Allah forgive me for this sin. Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly says, that he remembered he has who forgives his sin or her sin,
but has the ability to also punish for it. But then says, Let him or her do as they like.
Let him or her do as they like, for I have granted forgiveness to my servant, Allahu Akbar. Allah forgives our sins, when we commit a sin and ask our forgiveness, and then ask his forgiveness. And then we go and we commit the same sin, but we continue to return to Allah asking for his forgiveness. we as human beings make this mistake all the time. It's who we are. We live this life, we are weak, but we submit to a law and that is the key component here my brothers and sisters, Allah Subhana which Allah wants us to submit to Him, and show that we are submitting only to him, not to someone else, not to something else, only to a semi el bossier. On rub Allah azza wa jal, the
one who is eligible for a job, right? Allah foo has the ability to wipe away those sins that we've committed.
So live your lives my brothers and sisters, without thinking that we will never be forgiven. Never ever think that Allah subhana wa tahona would not forgive us. And remember that in Salta, Zuma, verse number 53, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, yeah, iva de la Dena also not for Ana.
Will your eba lead in a sort of warm
fuzzy in takanobu. Mattila.
Jim era in
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran
Yeah, are you ready? He says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell us right say to us? Yeah, are you baddie? Oh my servants, oh my worshippers, and living in a sort of for either unforeseen, those that have wronged themselves, those that have harmed themselves with sins all of us we do that right? What are we doing when we commit a sin? We're harming ourselves. We're not doing anything against a law. We're doing something against the will of Allah what he doesn't want from us. Right? He doesn't desire that for us, but we're harming ourselves. will ya? Are you by the Alevtina as sort of for Allah and forcing him? Those of us who harm ourselves with these sins?
takanobu Mira Mattila don't despair, from the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. Don't feel that a law cannot forgive the sins that we've made in our lives.
Don't think for a moment that for cannot forgive. Don't think for a moment that Elavil cannot wipe away those sins. Don't think for a moment that's far the ever forgiving will not forgive. And don't think for a moment that
the ever Accepting of repentance, the one who will always accept our repentance. Don't ever think for a minute that you made a mistake in your life. And Allah Allahu Allah for Allah far.
The web will not accept
Allah subhana wa teranet says takanobu Mira Mattila in La Jolla. Will Pharaoh Zulu badger Nia, Verily Allah forgives all the sins that we commit in one of our fools. Verily, He is a four. And you know what this means now, of Rahim. And you know what that means as well, because we've studied it in the past together. And so my brothers and sisters, one last thing. We learned in the first Heidi's that we took that a loss of Hannah what Allah forgives everything. But one thing he says as long as you don't associate any partners with me,
as long as we don't commit shift, so stay away from worshiping something else, or calling upon something or someone else other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, when we live our lives, and Allah will forgive everything. It could be the size of this earth, it could be piled up to reach the sky, and a fool will forgive.
My brothers and sisters, before I conclude this, and want to remind every single one of us of the importance of financially looking after our massage it especially this must adhere in Milton.

In fact, we're here right now. And you can even pull up right now to donate something at the masjid. So if you feel like you have something monetary, in your hands that you want to actually put in the donation box,

And yes, as I said, there was an important reminder or an important thing that I started my day with a beautiful thing I should say that I started my day with today and I wanted to share with everyone at the beginning, but I didn't because I know more people would be on at the end. So I'll share it with you. Now before we conclude in sha Allah. I woke up this morning and for some reason
today my internet was on on my phone. Usually I have it off throughout the night, but I don't know, I was in control of everything the internet was on. The very first message that I saw was from a friend of mine in Sydney, Australia. And he sent me a message and he said and I posted about this on Instagram and Facebook. He said today they prayed to drama in Sydney, Australia and because of the restrictions becoming lighter, right the easing off of the restrictions due to COVID-19. For the first time they prayed shoulder to shoulder standing in Juma prayer. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Isn't that amazing? Yes, I know that for some time. Things have been getting better in Australia and
New Zealand and some other countries around the world. But today he messaged me and he says for the first time we prayed Jumeirah standing shoulder to shoulder in Juma prayer, Allahu Akbar. I felt like that was absolutely amazing. Like some had a lot there's some hope there's some hope that we'll be back to our masajid standing side by side filling the mustard during the month of Ramadan filling the mustard for some artillery shell filling the mustard for Salatin photo, because one of the most beautiful things about this community here in Milton, Arusha were usually pretty full, right, especially on the weekend days. Friday night we usually get about 700 people for a shot right which
is still not filling the mustard we have more space for others. But we want to go back to that fudge of fudge especially here on the weekends at our Masjid. We we used to get about 200 people
Right about 200 people for fudging on the weekend days. So that's an amazing thing, an amazing blessing from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, I encourage every one of us to make lots and lots of dua to ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness of our sins and the call for ask Allah for ask Allah for as far as to werb to forgive our sins. Why? Because then when we clear our accounts with Allah, Allah says in the law, her law you how you become in Allah will not change the condition of people had you heard the rumor be unforeseen him until they change what is within themselves, so seek forgiveness from a lot today. Now right now, as you're listening to the say a stolen federal law I
