living. Dr. Haifa I'm going to hand over the mic to you so we can begin to share on the jsoc Hello Hi brother. I'm Ron smilla. Welcome Lao salatu salam ala rasulillah. While early he or sahbihi. Amendola la Molina myinfo now on fire now Bhima Alam tener una casa Mian Mooji Buddha obesity sada recently Omri watlow of the Tamil assignee of Coco Polly, just like Malala halen for joining us I know there's people from probably all over the state may Allah reward everyone and May Allah keep us all safe May Allah Subhana Allah protect us and I deeply in from the bottom of my heart, I asked her last pantalla to lift this test from us sooner than later may last pantalla make us move out of this
much better and much closer to him. SubhanAllah things are changing very quickly and I'm sure everybody is in a state of
fear uncertainity hope both one day like this one day like that. And I honestly I don't blame anyone because we all are in this.
It's changing very rapidly. It's more than half a million people are affected by this Subhanallah just an hour ago before. An hour ago today actually I received a text from a dear friend from overseas, where Subhanallah her husband was traveling and then he caught the Coronavirus and now he's fighting for his life is on
life on a ventilator and his nobody told his mother because it's very difficult to no one can see him so I asked before I start anything I start everybody to please pray for this Muslim of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah subhanaw taala make him go through it and give him full recovery the RBI me so as we all know, it's changing very quickly. It's very uncertain, we have no idea is it going to end up in a week in a two in a month in a two? Are we gonna go to tarawih and Ramadan? For those who have planned to go for Hajj? Are we able to go online news and it's interesting because we planned this Subhanallah before any of this and the whole topic was also balanced but it was actually
balanced between this life and the hereafter which we all especially professional people we all struggle and juggle to live this life as much as we can and what's expected from us and at the same time we are don't want to forget our another life the eternal life and we want to go there to Allah spawn tada and he's pleased with us and we all struggle which one year Allah are we doing the good thing are we doing our best? And then when all this COVID-19 Coronavirus comes up we thought that you know what, it's still a struggle. And it's still a balance but this time the main feeding that is not only the Muslims or the oma is going through, it's actually humanity. And it's so interesting
that this what we are all going through had affected every single human being on this earth which is so interesting. So Pamela when started in China, we were thinking you know what this reason and that reason then Allah subhanaw taala showed us no it is everybody. And everyone you talk to these days The topic is this one it will end what will happen to us. And if we come to homes, and in specific details, I mean people are losing their jobs. People don't know if they will have a job at the income Am I going to get it Am I a carrier, all these is happening to everybody so Pamela so it is a state of uncertainty and we move between everything will be good in sha Allah we went through much
harder and Allah will never let us down and he always never, ever lets us down. And then at the same time, something in us comes in a minute or two or half of the day and then
He's like, I don't know what will happen to me, will I get the virus? Will I end up in a ventilator? Will I die? Will I die, and then nobody will be coming to pray, are some very few because of the Quran. So all these fears, and uncertainty and anxiety, and Subhanallah This is what I want to share with everybody is fear and hope, fear, and hope, or hope, and fear.
And it's an Islamic concept that we study, and we teach, and we learn, and we are always reminded of this, and that the hope and the fear is the hope in the mercy of Allah, the hope and the agenda of Allah, the hope of a good life, and the fear of losing the good life, the bounties we have, and fear of the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the fear of being punished, the fear of the unknown afterwards. So all these, this is exactly what we are right now. And how are we going to balance it. And I always say this to myself before anyone, anytime we want to learn something, bring it back to the origin. And the origin is the words of Allah subhanaw taala. in any situation, in any situation,
you go through, go back to the origin. And I Well, if you allow me, I'm just going to tell you a little bit of a story. And I recently heard that actually, where there is a famous Sahabi and Allah knows, I think it's a beloved nosode, who used to say that there is no issue, no dilemma, no question in this life. But I found the answer in the Quran Subhan Allah. So as a teacher was teaching this and he said, I have been talking to someone, and I said this to them, or to him? And he said, so are you telling me in the origin? There is an answer to how to make a bread? Give me the answer right now from the Cora. So palomba make a bread? The answer is in the Quran. Give me the
answer. So the man said Just a second. And he loved came after two minutes, five minutes. And he gave him the recipe. And he said, but the recipe is not in the Quran. He said, No, the recipe is not in the aura. But I brought you the answer from the Quran. And he said, How is that? Said, Allah subhanaw taala. In the Quran, said the following. He said first only Allah decree in control attalla Mu asked the people of knowledge, if you don't know. So I went and asked the baker, how does he make a brand? And I brought you the recipe? The answer is and the aura. So Pamela, everything. The answer is the Quran. And we need to have this opportunity and never let anything shakes us. So hope and
fear. And this is how we're going to go through it. We're going to go through the Quran. And what's the best of the creation of Swami Salatu was Salam taught us, and let's see how we will live in this day and age in it. And I will inshallah give maybe 10 minutes at the end. So we all can, if there is questions or clarification for clarification, I will be more than happy to cover it. So the first thing, the first thing, both the feeling of fear, anxiety, worry, and the feeling of hope fulness
things is going to get better. I think I'm going to be all right, these two natural feelings. Number one. So if I'm feeling this way, that's natural. If I am feeling this way, that's natural. So where is the problem? The problem is one one, take over the other and take me away from reality. Where I keep seeing that I'm always afraid, things will go bad. This Corona will never end. I will never get a job. I'm going to get sick, someone is going to get sick, then I will become as we call it in medicine, paralyzed. I can think clear, I cannot plan clear. I cannot do my daily life clear. On the other hand, the feeling of Allah is generous. Allah will take care of me. I will do the precautions
they are telling me and things will get better. That's natural. That's normal. That's good. When does this become abnormal? paralyzing when I say nothing is gonna happen to me. No, I'm fine.
And I do not take any of the precautions they are all telling us. Wash the hands 20 seconds social distance don't go out unless you have to. If you feel symptoms, take a goal and get medical care. If I don't do that, then I am not hopeful. I am wishful thinking, I need to bring this together. Allah subhanho wa Taala said said it's in the Quran. Allah eco Latina year the owner Allah said some sorta he saw those, he's talking about the angels. He says those Allah eco Latina, your own idea better human Lassila. Those who invoke seek means have access to their Lord, which of them will be nearest to Allah. And now coming to the point, and they hope for his mercy. And they feel his punishment.
Both. They feel his punishment, they hope for his mercy and fear for his punishment, ballasts balance. And scholars always tells you the scholars of the hearts teaches you that to go to our last panel Matala we're flying is that they always say this, it's a bird flying to Allah and the bird that to fly, yes to see. And he has to have wings. And the wings for the bird to fly smoothly and doesn't fall and die is one is fear. And one is hope, or one is hope. And one is fear. I need them both.
And also the other two is I need to be patient and I need to be grateful. And the bird will fly in this life and will fly to Allah subhanaw taala and get close and close to him. So I need to live with these two things. Allah is merciful. But Allah also has to be a punishment, both at the same time. At the same time, and Allah again said it in narangba Casa de la Avi, we're in the hula hula Rahim, last area of salt will enhance the cattle. And he said your Lord is talking to us. Wally santosa said, Your Lord seriola home, his punishment can come cookie.
And we know same time when you know laugh, all right. And he's all merciful, all forgiving. So when I am living right now, and I'm seeing things changing very quickly, I need to live with this too. I need to be afraid,
healthy fear. And I need to be healthy, hopeful, healthy, hopeful, healthy feeling.
Healthy feeling. So what is hope. And I'm going to share it of course it's an Islamic webinar. So we're going to bring Islamic concept and bring it to our life. This is how we live Islam. As we always say, Islam is everyday religion is a religion that I practice it every day. And let's take it so what is hope, hope is one of the highest
act of worship when you are hopeful in our last panel what Allah act as his servant, hoping and you know, he will not let you down. And the essence of it, the essence of it, it starts from the fact you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'll come to you at the end into a couple of things we need to do practically to get this balance. So hopefulness in Allah Hana what Allah is by knowing him subhanho wa Taala and at the same time I take the means that will make me qualify for his mercy.
So take it for the corona. I know I know. Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect me. If I take the means if I will follow the instructions, then you're going to come and say well some people took the instructions but they also got sick. Then I will say in the fact although I took all the precautions I got sick in it there is an awful lot here i am i'm hopeful. I am hopeful there is mercy in this he will not let me down and the feeling is basically you have a delight feeling of something good that's gonna come it's good. You feel it inside you scholars teaches you this it's very nice and they say I don't know how many of you plant but I love planting and to plant anything whether in a
small pot or in the
yard, you need the following and practical this call means to get a beautiful flower or a beautiful fruit I planted to get the result I need the following, I need an earth apart basically soil and I need in it to put the plant itself or the seeds, I have to water it right. And then I have to wait.
And if there is any extra poisons or something is coming around it, I clean it.
And then I am very hopeful I did my job, Allahu la catch me down, I will get the plant. And most of us see that same thing in my relationship with Allah.
I need the the earth or the port located at the port is my heart and yours. The Earth, the port, the port has to be clean, has very good soil, very good soil, so that the heart has to be already prepared, removed, cleansed, I'm sorry, not removed, cleansed from impurity. The hearts alone will not bring fruit.
I need to put seeds and the seeds is faith. We all have it we know a lot exists. We know Allah gives us we know Allah is the only one who will remove this test and trial. And we know Allah is the one who allowed it with the no one
capability to prevent or to bring. So the seed is my faith. Then I need the water to add to it. And these are the good deeds, the good deeds I need to do keep keep keep putting water to the right amount. And then remove the poisons. What is poisons disobedience, remove it, remove it. The result? Then I do this and I wait. And I make my da I make my supplication. Your law, please give me the beautiful fruit. The tomato, the beautiful flower. That's hope. Here I am. Here we are all of us wherever you are. We are homebound,
homebound, social distancing, washing our hands. At least, Allah knows how many times but for at least 20 seconds, Eddie, right, we're doing all these trying to avoid touching our hand. If we go outside, like for example, if I'm going to the hospital, come back, take my shoes and take my clothes and and start, try to separate them. I'm taking all the means all the means. I am hopeful I did that. Now here comes in. That's what we all need to do. I need to have the good deeds and the good deeds that Allah subhanho wa Taala put us in our homes, chained us in our homes against our will. And there's something I would say for some people is extremely difficult. I need to use this
time to bring more good deeds bring a lot of water to the plant. So I will at the end get the good flower. And at the same time, remove the bad deeds. I cannot be in the house. And from morning to evening, doing exactly the same. I was doing three weeks ago, planning for six months what I will do watching my show on Netflix or wherever, or spending wasting my time on social media. This said he said watch. That's not that's not i'm not hopeful. I am doing things that the possibility of me getting a good plant at the end is jeopardized. The good plant in this current situation is two things. The beautiful flower I am looking at. And I'm hoping for and I'm waiting to see two things.
Number one, I come out and everybody and all humanity. Not only my beloved ones, healthy,
healthy with minimum loss. And most importantly and this is specifically for Muslims. I came out much closer to him. Number one, number two, I learned it unfortunately
the hard way, how weak I am. Volleyball in sample by a human being create was created weak, lots of this assaulted me, sir, woman, I am weak. Everybody I am short, is feeling this saying it or not saying it but you're feeling it that I am weak, I have no control. He showed me in action, how much I am control less, control less. And at the same time I come out that I learned it the hard way. It's only him capital H who will remove it. Not only korona but as my life goes on. I learned it that only him will be able to benefit to me or to harm me or to give me or to withheld or withhold from me. Only him.
Then I passed and I am hopeful.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I'm sorry Rasul Allah, his Salatu was Salam said, it's a beautiful Javi. He said, and curious, a wise man. Wise Man, now I am talking about hope. I want to be hopeful in this life and the hereafter, and the current status we are in and keys the wise man.
Men done enough, sir, took himself accountable. What am I ready my battle mode and he worked for what's after death, meaning worked for the Hereafter, while arges the helpless, who followed his own desires, and he is or has wishful thinking that Allah will give him the best.
It doesn't work this way.
wise person, he or she who take himself or herself accountable. What did I do your law that you took this blessing of freedom from me, not what people did? What did I do? that a lot took this from me. This is always in tusky and purification of the heart. They always teaches us that don't blame people don't look at others. Look at yourself. me. What did I do? I did not appreciate the freedom you gave me the job you gave me. The school. The
practices, the children goes to the fact I can go out whenever I want, then enough, sir. Well, I'm gonna remodel mode and learned from this and start working to change and plan for the hereafter.
And while urges helpless, the person who follow his desires, it's not my fault. I didn't do anything. It's because of China. It's because they eat raw meat. It's because of this. It's because of that. This could be the reason but that's not what Allah wants me to learn. Allah wants me to learn how to use whatever he's giving me to get better. And I cannot blame everyone else and then come out the floor, the flower or the fruit. And I expected it to be the best. So hopeful. Yes, absolutely be hopeful. Allah will not let us down. And I'll share another Hadith. I love this. Anyang, the host now one of Devi, Allah said this in a hurry, thank god See, I am he tapana as my
servant, think of me,
I am as my servant. Think of me. What no matter who is our Danny and he and I am Allah with him. When he asked me
hope in this time is
thinking constantly, no doubt, this is good for us.
Then you're going to come and tell me but I'm not seeing any good I lost my job. I don't have an income or somebody will say a beloved one is in the ICU somebody will say on chain somebody say I cannot get you my medicines. I'm giving the worst scenario.
Hope I know in the house now Vanya Abdi be applying this Howdy. I am as my servant. Think of me meaning I keep telling myself this is good for me.
But I'm not seeing it. That's when you're doing your supplication your law. Show me Show me where is the goodness in this. And I keep bugging him and will lie he will show you. He will show you each one of you. He will show you because he will see through you
And he will see through me I am sincere. I really want to see the good in this. I'm hopeful, but he must show me ask him and have this believe Yaki uncertainity it is good, it will never change to the excellent another Hadith Allah subhanho wa Taala also, Swati salatu wa sallam said lai omoton had to come in La Jolla, San Juan, new Bella, don't you ever? As Are you getting close to die on your deathbed, but thinking good of Allah. I'm not going to say I'm going to go to the hellfire. No, Allah will save me when I am close to to death, so hope, hope,
good thinking, good thinking of a loss pantalla but at the same time, I'm acting, I'm acting and I'm taking all the means and I will never let shaitan come to me and make me doubtful.
Now come to the fear, balance. What is fear? Fear is uncomfortable feeling pain. I am always thinking something bad is going to happen in the future. Either there is a ground for it. Or is just me. What here as I say, fear, I'm afraid, I'm afraid is going to happen to me, I'm afraid I am going to lose my job. I'm afraid I'm afraid I'm afraid. Allah used it. And if you go to the Quran again to the source, you'll see Allah used fear in the Quran and he not even use fear how he used hatia fear love the same time and Allah said that to beautifully and Sora Tato in Mr. Yosh Allah meaning by the hero llama wordly. Those, the knowledgeable one are the one who have at most highest state of fear
from Allah subhanho wa Taala. These are the knowledgeable people who know Allah and Tony and they know him very well and know everything but still, they are afraid from him. And the example is, what are Swati Salatu was Salam said he said, Anna alphacam Bella, I am the most I am the purse, the the one among you, who knows Allah the best, knows Allah the best. Yet I am the most fearful of him, that sort of Swati soft or sir. So fear is absolutely there. Absolutely there and fear is good.
When it is balanced, fear, that feeling is good. When I am balanced, when the fear is or the feeling is balanced, meaning if I am not afraid, if I am not afraid. And I don't know how to swim, for example, if I don't have the fear of drowning, I will jump in a swimming pool or in the water. So that's a good feel. I need that. When the child one time he touches let's say the stove and he gets burned or I get burned adult. Next time I'm going to be very careful. That's fear. It's a protection. Fear is a healthy feeling to protect me and you. If I and you were not fearful of getting the corona COVID-19 I will not be applying what they are telling me. So he is healthy, as
long as it is balanced, as long as it is balanced. And Allah subhanho wa Taala citizen so what will begin
to beautiful the last Ayat of Surah toolbank in Allah said and he's talking about the believers are all the Allahu anhu what are the one?
Allah is pleased with them? The believers and they are pleased with him.
All the you know the Allahu anhu model the one they Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Allah. Who are these people lemon hushing are
those who have fear of Allah, Sophia, I need it. I need it. But I need both. I need the balance. How do I get the balance? Now that's the question and which one is better?
In general, as Muslims, as I am going in my journey in this life towards the law, should I leave? Should I live all the time in fear? Should I live all the time in hope? Or should I change or should I live always in balance?
And very nice parable, or an example and you see this in the books of how Allah they said, someone has two options, water
Which one is better for that person?
So water or bread? Which one is better for that person? The answer is, is that person thirsty, or that person is hungry.
If that person is thirsty, water is better. If that person is hungry,
bread is better. So, hope and fear.
If I am too hopeful, nothing is gonna happen to me, I can go out everything is gonna be good. So I'm not gonna take any precautions than I need to someone to remind me that, or I say to myself, it happens only to the old people only to the people who have underlying disease, then I'm too hopeful. The balance is stilted, I need someone to come to me or I need to read or I hear Oh, there's somebody who was young, less than 40 they got it and they died.
Balance. If I am too afraid, I need to be hopeful. If I am too hopeful, I need to be afraid. That's the balance.
And where do I bring the balance in my relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala which I need
dearly and very much in need of it. These days, go to the source, number one, in the Quran. In the Quran, when I am so afraid. I need to remember this verse. I love the verse, it's unsorted hinge
hedger and the verse is number 50. Allah said
Torah Salah hisako surah number a body and me an unlawful or Rahim what another ob colada will
never be a body tell my servants it's beautiful and Allah called us His servants panela regardless who we are regardless how
very obedient we all or maybe we are very obedient he said it generally categorically number a birdie told my servant and an unlawful Rahim I am all for giving All Merciful what another hobby.
Next one and my punishment who will other bully a severe punishment balance both both allies all forgiving and a lot of the same time has severe punishment. read the Quran as I'm going to take you through these points and we're going to try to apply it in our extra time we are having as we are in our homes, or read more or and this is the month of Siobhan and the month of of Siobhan or Swati salatu salam talked about it specifically. And he said the meaning of Siobhan is a month between our job and normal bond between the last month was Roger but and it's one of the sacred month and Ramadan is coming. So Siobhan is in between your third one Okay, humaneness. A lot of people don't
pay attention to it. We are all getting ready for Ramadan thinking of Ramadan. So he used to do a lot of extra deed in it. A lot of extra reading, specifically fasting to get ready for the for Ramadan. And CDH. I used to said that I've never seen a Swami Salatu was set up fast more than Ramadan, but in shaba, so He fasted whole month of Ramadan. The next He fasted more is in shaba. Let's take this time that we have in the Quran, and let's teach ourselves about the hopeful ayat and the fearful IR to the hopeful verses and the fearful verses, for example, one of them also and this is the most hopeful verse in the Quran. Almost all the scholars tells you it's in Surah zomer
Yeah, by Dr. livina Astra for Allah unforeseen Latin oma Rahmatullah, oh my servant, that you have transgressed against yourself, don't despair. Don't despair. Don't despair, from the mercy of Allah.
Don't despair, from the mercy of Allah. That's the most
hopeful verse in the Quran in the same surah Allah subhanaw taala give a description of the Hellfire that some scholars tells you it is the most fearful verse in the Quran in the same chapter Azuma the group's Lahu mean falta him woollen amin and now he will mean tatty him will narikala do holy for law will be a bad. Yeah, a baddie Fatone is one of loss saying he's saying describing May Allah protect us all. From the punishment of the Hellfire that they have the people, the dwellers of Jana, the Hellfire, mela protectors, they have layers of fire from a top of them, and layers of fire under them both. And then Allah saying, This is what I am describing to you. So you will be afraid, yeah,
a bad effect, oh, my servant, have all and be a lot conscious. So number one are on balance, bring balance in your life, bring balance these days in your time, spend it with your family, some do nice things you like you can add. Some people exercise some people plan some people read, but also the balance is go back to the Quran, and read specially specially about the tests that are not tested the people before us tested them, we're not the first people. And I'm sure we're not gonna be the last or last pantalla decided or decide that this earth or this life will end. So read, read the Quran, it brings back the balance. One too, as something may, I'm sure almost everyone is familiar
with some may know more, some may know less. And that is the names of Allah, the names of Allah, we need to move the knowledge of the names of Allah from names that we have to almost everybody hand on the wall? Or do we know them? To know them? I live with them.
know them, and live with them in these days, and of course there's plenty of names but I'm going to just share a couple of them. The names of Allah that gives me hope. In these days give me hope, and Holly,
for being all for Barry and Halle, Allah haleem. Allah is all forbearing Allah doesn't want to punish me. Allah is very patient with me, I have disobeyed your law, years and years and still you give me and feed me and make me and you're protecting me and giving me everything I'd have he all forbearing Allah for all Forgiving, the the capital T v all forgiving, He forgive me. He forgive me, I NGO and most people one time, or maybe two, or maybe three, someone does not obey me or listen to me or do good to me. I'm done. I'm done. And you say to that we say to each other undone, for how long I'm going to be doing this and I don't get back to Panama. And how much Allah give you and me
again and again and again. How many times you and me
made supplication cried for him, and he gave us and then back. And sometimes May Allah forgive me. Number one, he will give me things I want. And then I use it for his disobedience. So Allah for animal how far atewa but the one who accept to repentance, and the one who opened the doors of repentance, and Kareem, the generous, the generous, the generous. One of the things that I keep reminding myself in sha Allah, everybody Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah the COVID-19 Coronavirus did not attack the internet.
How we will be doing what we are doing right now. How will the children will be learning instead of going to school students, college students, all students, telemedicine we are doing it is because of the internet Alhamdulillah on was Kadeem a was generous. That's how I need a new to bring the balance. Generous, very generous, he will give me he doesn't expect from me anything one of other names I will have the one who gives without expecting not because I deserve it. But he because he is the generous at the same time. As I'm living these names and everyone listening to me now is probably feeling
Alhamdulillah This is good, I'm smiling. I need to bring the balance. Because if I live with this, the balance will fall. I need to remember Allah is an AVI. Allah is the strong and I use this name in two ways. When I'm so scared, I'm gonna get sick. Allah, Allah Ya Allah, Ya Allah you are the strong one. One you look at this virus and you take it you're capable of kawi and the F May Allah protect us all someone you know and they get sick, you will say Allah until kawi you are much stronger than this virus cannot remove it. alcovy l Mateen. l Mateen.

What advice can you give us to console us as our beloved die alone as families are not allowed due to regulations so panela this is one of the toughest test when you have your beloved one died, especially if they have died from the COVID-19
out of saving other lives then the loved ones can cannot see them Subhanallah and this is not easy. And also the loved ones cannot follow them or they can a group of pray as a group or go to the graveyard as a group because of the social distance. I will say the following number one, no one more merciful than Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So always remember this is the situation what I live with the hope. I live with the hope. Absolutely. Allah has Rahim Allah is All Merciful owner
Have mercy and he is the one who gives mercy. There is mercy number two, they went to the Most Merciful. We are not the most merciful. They were living with us and we are not the most merciful. They went to him three. Those who died in this disease they are Shaheed they are as they are killed in a battlefield martyr there's a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam so what status they have forth my duty to the beloved one is not or doesn't stop by I go to the to the follow the funeral or I go to the graveyard and pray no is a matter of no other macabre family.
When my beloved person dies, I think immediately what can I do right now in this situation three things. A lot of what are those sorry when your daughter righteous son or a daughter, pray for them or a niece or a nephew pray for them.

So you help someone to print a book you help someone a child to study and then this knowledge will be beneficial. This is how you consoled them. I say this number one. No one are Hamidullah heavier anybody. No one is more merciful than Allah for his people or his servant. May Allah give them genetically for dose. May Allah subhanaw taala give them sober patient and keep them strong as he gave the patient to the mother of syedna Moosa when he when Allah pantalla by his decree took syedna
Musa as a baby from her and he about Nana, I'll be her. We we, like tightened her heart to come to stay strong. hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen My husband is treating a patient who has Coronavirus.

I didn't understand the question. If the husband tested positive or only the patient, let's assume both.
He tested the patient today. So a patient who has Coronavirus he tested himself or the patient. Let's assume the patient has Coronavirus. I am the physician who's treating right number one, I take the means I'm hopeful Allah will protect me, but I take all the means and then hamdulillah we physicians, almost everybody is doing that.

If a major sin is committed and person makes Toba sincerely and has hope in Allah forgiveness and mercy, is the person safe from Allah punishment? Absolutely. Let me read it again. So somebody did major sin, major sin, but he sincerely look at the question sincerely did a tober will ALLAH forgive him? Yes, Allah said it's uncertain for on at the end of Salatin for on and he lost Potala, numerate after he talks about
His servant he normal rate major sins lie those who those who have stuck with those who kill people, those who commit adultery, right Illa Allah says ilam and taba except that who repent hamdulillah sincerely tab wireman. Believe why Milan, Milan so Amazon salia Han and he or she followed the repentance with a good deed continuously tober repentance meaning I feel bad, I ask Allah for forgiveness and I will make my resolve I will never do it again. Sincerely, that's how it is. And then I believe and I do good deeds for Allah I can listen to this for those people. You bet the law who see it him has an ad. Allah will replace their bad deeds with good deeds. What can Allahu wa
rahima and Allah was all forgiving, All Merciful. And then he said again, this is the last stage of slaughter for on the criterion. last page, woman tab awami lasallian, Naga to Allah He metabo and that person who sincere and do a good deed, he is returning to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So absolutely, this one is hopeful because the Toba is sincere. If this person keep doing it, and say I stuck little law tongue, and he doesn't or she doesn't stop and do a good deed when I need to make them scared to bring the balance back.
Any more question? Brother? I'm wrong? I think we are.
What about Coca Cola a bad? That's a tough question. How could a bad the right of the people if I violated them? What do I do?
If I can ask for their forgiveness? It depends. Of course, this is a long list. This is a whole topic by itself. But let's assume I back back at somebody I took I took
I took their money unlawfully I
that I violated their right. I did injustice to them all this. So what do I do? If I know them and I asked for forgiveness from them, that's the best if I don't know them, or they are not with us anymore, or that I cannot get to them. Or I know if I do this they will the result is not good. I make a lot of drama for them. A lot of do as I do it for myself and ask Allah for forgiveness and ask Allah to keep me on the right path. So because this is two things I violated, I violated the right of Allah and I violated the right of the person. So I asked for their forgiveness. If not, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala I make dua out for them if it is monetary I give charity in their name
if I did injustice to them I do things for them in their name and unless pantalla again after I do all this I remember nirbhay body and me and Allah for Rahim remind my servants I am all forgiving All Merciful, is akmola halen brother I'm right I think we need to stop it's 104 Spanish hola como behind Nicaragua and Costa Rica to Lake sallallahu ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali Ali was hard with his team and Katie Rogers, aka Milan, Doctor Who for me, Allah reward you and the rest of the Institute team with goodness, thank you so much for this beneficial lecture.
