respected viewers and listeners. We begin by pleasing Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala is all forgiving, All Merciful and majority of the attributes of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala filled with kindness, compassion, forgiveness and mercy. We sense irritations upon our beloved navia Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam malossi Anna what Allah has sent is Rama tulameen a mercy for the entire universe. And amongst his qualities was for the Mara Mata min Allah healing tala it is Ramadan, the mercy of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala that our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely compassionate, kind to the sama, but will many prefer Rahim says Allah in the Holy Quran

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

upon the believers, he was extremely extremely merciful.

00:01:29--> 00:02:19

We are now coming towards the end of Ramadan we had said inshallah, towards the end we would like to conclude Ramadan with a positive attribute and with a positive attitude, and what greater positivity can we get? But from the mercy in the hermit and the forgiveness of Almighty Allah subhana wa Tada. And before we make mention of that, let us understand that Allah subhana wa Taala has created within human beings a capacity and a propensity towards both evil and goodness. falahat Maha foodora watashi wa Allah Allah says we have given you the ability to do right and the ability to do that which is wrong. Together with it. Allah has made us weak. Julio Collinson, Allah if Allah says I

00:02:19--> 00:03:06

have created human being weak, Haleakala in San Juan Jolla, I have creative human being who is impulsive and in his feed impulsive, he sometimes goes towards that which is negative and that which is not correct, because of that impulsive nature which Allah has created for him. And we are not angels as human beings. We are not angels. And I think it is most likely allama Iqbal who had said that the deal k was the better cure in some core whatnot at Kalia Karnataka rubia. Allah has created human being that he is going to do sometimes wrong, and he is going to repent, he's going to falter, he's going to stumble. If it was only devotion only for him to be in sister all the time, then the

00:03:06--> 00:04:00

angels were doing a good enough job, you know, for that the angels were sufficient for an attack in a good community. However, despite tech we have to keep in mind that our disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala is no ordinary matter. It is no ordinary matter. In German hirado car, no car in Java, yada yada, that a man and a believer he he is so afraid with regard to some. It is like him sitting underneath a mountain in which they are loose rocks. And he's worried that anytime a rock is going to come fall upon him, whereas fossick, a transgressor he regard sin as ordinary as a fly sitting on his nose or his face and he brushes it aside. We don't regard some as insignificant,

00:04:00--> 00:04:51

certainly is not insignificant. We occur himself when I sit on a person some a dark stain comes on his heart, his spiritual heart. And if he doesn't repent, the dark stain becomes even larger, until it envelopes can it covers his entire heart, then he cannot see the right he cannot see through. And it becomes very difficult for him to do it as the day after. So sin is no ordinary matter. Now, how do we read ourself from sin? For every disease, there is a cure for illness there isn't. There is a cure, there is a Shiva. For some Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us a cure, and that Allah has given us a way out of redeeming ourselves after committing a sin. And what is that? That is Toba

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

nsfr and therefore the worker himself said, when a person sends a dark stain comes on his heart. However, when he

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

towba a dark stain evaporates, it comes away, it comes away. This particular way is how we can turn towards Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala asking for forgiveness. Now, there is no doubt that there are certain guidelines and conditions with regard to seeking forgiveness. Like for example, they must be, they must be regret. And then Pereira, for example, telavi mfat, you must have a great desire and, you know an aspect of willing that I will not come at this and all of that is on this place, there are conditions with regard to it. If we have done someone wrong, and we have stolen from someone, it's not good enough for you just to go make Toba and ask Allah for forgiveness, you

00:05:39--> 00:06:26

have to repeat you have to go and repay the person. However, those conditions are misplaced. But for the purpose of the program today, I want to speak about the mercy of Almighty Allah subhanaw taala. Maybe today and maybe tomorrow, and in this regard the core in terms of the conditions for Toba, the core of it is regret. feeling bad about the wrong that you have done a tober to another, if you have to encapsulate what Toba is, what forgiveness and asking forgiveness from a letter is it is a regret and you know, feeling wrong and feeling bad about why you have committed this and if you do that, then of course, Allah subhanho wa Taala has doors of forgiveness

00:06:27--> 00:07:11

you know shaytan must lead us in two ways. One he must leave out by telling us things nothing wrong with you doing wrong allies will definitely forgive you know, so you don't have to worry no no no, we do worry we are worried. We know Allah tala is forgiving, but Allah subhana wa Taala is forgiving if you have committed or wrong by chance, it is not no harm I have given this example it is like a person a doctor gives you a medicine and ointment for your burns and said if perchance you burn us this appointment no one will take his hand into the fire into the dry fire and say what are you doing? I could a very good omen that will that I can put if I burn what they will tell him if

00:07:11--> 00:07:52

perchance you burn you don't go and deliberately go and put your hand in fire. If perchance you burn then you can use it on when not deliberately putting your hand in the fire to use the ointment. So Allah tala is forgiving not that we take advantage of it if perchance you have succumbed and you have committed wrong then you go to Allah tala associated Muslims you one way. And the other way he must lead you Is he say that you will become despondent after you have committed sin. That's another misconception. And it is a way of shaytan deceiving us. I never be allowed in one day. So a person who was sitting and feeling very, very bad and despondent over the wrong that he had done. And when

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

he saw this little girl who said, Why are you sitting so despondent? He said, I have committed a sin. That's why I'm feeling very bad, feeling despondent. And I literally ultimo said an amazing thing. He said you're sitting with despondency is even more serious than the sun that you have committed, and now loves the one now after you understand that turn towards Almighty Allah with regret and not feeling that Allah will never forgive with a pure heart inshallah Allah will forgive if I am sincere. Allah loves the one who turns towards Allah subhanho wa Taala independence in Allah you have put the hobby, Allah knows a person who turns towards Almighty Allah in repentance. You

00:08:34--> 00:09:13

know, in Sahih Muslim there is a hadith to a Muslim. One is Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a hadith that comes in an essay Muslim, that nebbia Kareem saw some said, hope people if you don't sin, Allah will wipe you away. If you don't send an ask Allah for forgiveness, Allah will wipe away and create another creation who will sin and ask Allah for forgiveness, doesn't mean I gave you that example doesn't mean he was going to deliberately Culbertson. But it does mean that Allah has certain qualities and attributes of forgiveness. When will Allah subhanho wa Taala when when Allah subhanho wa Taala manifest it. When we ask Allah for forgiveness and Allah will forgive it that is where he

00:09:13--> 00:09:55

is before. That is why he is the one who is all forgiving, and he loves forgiveness. So Allah tala has made mention of this. And then one Hadith maybe a cream sauce can explain how Allah gets happy when we ask for forgiveness. It comes in a hadith that a person the example of how Allah gets happy when we ask Allah for forgiveness, he is like a traveler who goes in a desert. In a desert you require the camel for your existence, for he can travel as long distance without water, and a person loses his camera. And then he is very, very anxious. Now he comes and he resigns himself to death. He comes in sleep under three and he is now resigning himself to death because he cannot traverse

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

the desert without the camera, how far he has to go and when he gets up, all of us

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

sudden he sees his provision, which was on the camera and the camera in front of him. How happy will he be at that particular time, and that what may occur himself some set a law gets more happier than that person who finds his kemmel the time when he has lost his camera and he loses all hope that he will ever survive and then he sees his camera and he gets even more happier. If Allah Allah loves in the live show to Yoda, who believe they are toamasina Allah is waiting. Allah stretches out his hands of mercy every night every evening, to forgive the people who have done wrong in the day. And a lot of stretches out his hand of mercy every day to forgive the person who have promoted wrong in

00:10:45--> 00:10:59

the night. Today is in this program is going out on the 27th night. I have taken a little bit more time for us to realize how Allah subhanho wa Taala is waiting for our repentance. Hello Monica foon Karim on

00:11:01--> 00:11:19

the door that we are supposed to recite on the other which most likely is on the 27 not necessary but most likely, Allah loves Aloma naka foon Karim, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Love forgiveness, hola forgive us and inshallah we will continue with a module for mighty Allah tomorrow.
