Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah he Allah in me by the

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

way by the potty was Salatu was salam wa sallam via he will serene. Well Allah Allah He was happy was seldom at the Sleeman Cathy Ron Kathy Rob, a mavado photo Villa Humana shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, ora Buccola for rhodora ma Sarah cola who nauseum, respected viewers and listeners We begin by praising Almighty Allah sending salutations upon our beloved nivia Karim sir Allahu alayhi wa sallam, we are coming now towards the end of Ramadan. And obviously there was a feeling that we end off in a positive manner and what greater positivity can we as believers have them the mercy and the forgiveness of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala. In yesterday's program, we

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

spoke about different capacities of human beings which Allah tala has kept within us, the capacity to do good and the capacity to go and be inclined towards evil. And that Allah has made mentioned however, taking the path towards this obedience is not an ordinary matter. It is very severe, and sin has tremendous repercussion. Allah has given us a cure with regard to it. And the cure with regard to it is Toba and ecfr 30. Towards Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala in repentance, and yesterday, we spoke about it and we also said that Allah loves the one who repents. Allah loves the one who repents even more than a person who loses his camel, which is essential for his survival in

00:01:43--> 00:02:29

a desert. and thereafter he resigned himself to death. And he comes and sleep under a tree and when he gets up, he sees his camel and his a loads and all whatever he needs to survive on the camel. How happy would it be? Maybe a cream sauce them gave us this example to say Allah gets even more happier with a person repents for his sons. And then with together with that, we also take great amount of solace in the forgiveness and the vastness of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala as forgiveness. The reality is, we will never ever be able to fathom the forgiveness and mercy of Almighty Allah allow my inner cafo and Karima to laugh at Allah, Allah loves forgiveness, Oh Allah, you are the one who

00:02:29--> 00:03:12

loves forgiveness, forgive us. And while our sins might be great, and no one is ever supposed to regard his sins as insignificant, even if it might be a minus, and because sometimes a fire can start off with something very small and insignificant, a small twig can set out a fire which can lead to the burning of a house, which could lead to great amount of forest fires, etc, which happens. So we never regard any citizen significant. But we also know that our sins compared to the forgiveness of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala is miniscule. Therefore amongst the daughters of the pious people,

00:03:13--> 00:03:58

allow mama Farah to Councilman dombey. Allah must fear to Councilman dombey our law forgiveness is far more greater and much more vast than my son's. This is something that we you know, didn't occur himself from Serbia, even Adam no benefit. Nana sama, all human beings, if your sins reaches up, even to the extent up to the heavens, are in one rewired up to the extent of the form in the ocean, whose sins can be so many. And then you turn towards Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala with regret and asking for forgiveness, and that Allah says, I will forgive you Well, navali and there will be no difficulty me for to forgive you. There will be no difficulty we have to forgive you. Our sins

00:03:58--> 00:04:47

are many, but also at the same times. Why we are not regarded as insignificant. We also take solace in the occurrence of Solomon said in one Hadith Scheffer, de la cabeza de mi nombre de my Shabbat, and my intercession is for those people who have done major sins amongst my own. You know, Allah tala has forgiveness and mercy is not only for those Allah's mercy and forgiveness is not only for those who are pious, and this has been very beautifully explained in one incident artemus miraculously, a very famous scholar in our history, says I was in the harem one day in the Kaaba on a dark night. And I heard a person who was rendering poems, and he was very hot rendering and one of

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

his poems was yummy. Yuji will Masato Rafi zalmi yakushi peduli Well, Bella masaka me all the one who listens to the distress persons in the darkness of the night

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

The one who relieves the affliction of the afflicted.

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

In Canada Judah calayan.

00:05:06--> 00:05:51

familia Judah will Allah Zina will carry me over life, your forgiveness in your mercy and your kindness and your compassion does not come upon those people who are wrongdoers who have done wrong, then who will show kindness and compassion and forgiveness and mercy to those who have committed wrong, and then they ever regret. So how it was my Rahmatullah said I was so taken aback by those poems, and I rushed to go and see who it was. And to my utter amazement, it was saying, well, RBD in particular, the great grandson of our beloved Nivea cream sauce, I said, they will have it in you are from Allah bait. You are singing and you are seeing this amazing poetry and this amazing poem.

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

And he said, How come I'm surprised by you

00:05:55--> 00:06:35

are not saying the Quran for either No, if you have a soul for unsub then on the day of karma, when the Trumpet blows, there will be no limit it will be taken into account, your deeds will be taken into account. Oh, how do you see any situation that we are free from, you know, concern in this particular regard? The family of Nivea cream sauce lamb showed us how they turn towards Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala, asking for his grace. And Allah subhanho wa Taala looks for excuses. To forgive people in a Muslim there's a hadith person will be asked from among the previous one much that what do you bring? You know, what good did you have? And the person who was a trader will say,

00:06:35--> 00:07:17

and I have no I have no grid room, I don't have anything great. Only one thing I have was, I was afraid I was extremely compassionate to people and kind. If they couldn't pay on time, I told him what I take more time or you can pay me after a while. Sometimes people who are extremely poor I used to sort of leave it I won't take money from you and allow will say to that person, are you more kinder than me? If you can show kindness to migration, is it not worth it that I must show kindness to you go I have forgiven you. And in this particular regard, we take solace and this is the aspect of cultivating our positivity. If shaytan does not stop from leading people astray. Then why should

00:07:17--> 00:07:59

we stop from repenting in front of Almighty Allah subhana wa Tada. If Allah subhanho wa Taala does not tire from forgiving people. In fact, Allah tala waits for us to ask for forgiveness. And while when we ask for forgiveness, we might not for example, was never have the intention of doing it again. But if it happens that we go back again, someone gave this beautiful example. He say it is like the wiper in the car. The rain comes the wiper wipes it away, the rain come the wiper will sit away. We never do Toba thinking that we will do Guna again but if it happens, we turn towards your mighty and it will conclude by saying if Allah doesn't tire from forgiving. Why should we tire from

00:07:59--> 00:08:04

asking Allah for forgiveness Subhan Allah will be handy for that one and number 11
