Are you overexerting the solder sin?
Supposed to come USB audio codec
holed up in the life of a PMP on
a story. And the story of the story was, how a servant should be humbled and mindful
to themselves first and foremost, and then how
that allows, has over
Allah subhanaw Madonna says,
In the Quran for dealing with darkness for living and now, the hypocrites will be in the lowest pit, the fire of health, whatever that should never be Muslim and they will find no help in living a taboo.
What are some
of the learning you
need was open
except for those who repent
and rectify their needs.
For those people who don't says they have reason to believe hypocrisy is such a great sin but Allah subhanaw taala just mentioned that the hypocrite may be in the lowest pit of a fire.
If this is the outcome, I mean, we're not that Allah subhanaw taala is willing to forgive them if they are sincere and they turn to a lot then what about people that sincerely love Allah that have made mistakes along the way?
A lot of them agenda is awaiting them and therefore in the Quran, Allah some kind of boy that says,
Oh, the Rooney a scheduler call out to me. I shall respond to your response to your poll.
Similarly, Allah is the one that says I like to call in Allah by Estelle Fiona. Why not turn to Allah and ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness.
So now we see that the role of Toba is central in our theme.
When a person engages in Toba, there is a great deal of humility at display.
You're no longer viewing yourself as entitled to Allah subhanaw taala
that God poses to me
You're humbling yourself and appreciating understanding that.
In the sin without any way to exit without confessing your sin. In Islam, we have no such concept. We are wishful and overly optimistic that we ignore our flaws, we are honest, and we have done wrong. And yes, Allah Subhana Allah is merciful beyond you and I will ever be capable of describing with our limited deficient words.
But there is a path to attaining that mercy.
There is a level of Allah subhanaw taala as mercy that is awesome in general to every person obedient or disobedient. But then there is a second element of that Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that is specific to those that are loyal to Allah. So if you open up the seer books, and look at what the scholars say about the statement Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
in the name of Allah R Rahman r Rahim. So the question is, what's the difference? We can earthmen or hate when the both both of these words originate from the same root word which is nursing?
What's the difference? There must be a difference that one is pure of any form of redundancy.
So now engage in a lengthy discussion, Bobby, and Bobby in this machine provides multiple possibilities interpretations. And one of the common interpretation requests you don't hold here is they say Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim, a man at dunya or a human
man, a dunya. Well, Rahim asked
me that the this tip a Mercy of Allah that we refer to when we say a Rohan is a mercy that is manifested in this world to the believer and
what a human.
When we say a regime, we are referring to that Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. We just caused specifically the believers and will then present itself to those people who are loyal to Allah but a human in the Hereafter.
This was the life of Rasulullah sallallahu
is engaged in humility and humbleness.
I mean the prophet Elijah some didn't commit sins, but maybe somebody who was certain actions and the possibility of those actions not being fit to what Allah subhanaw taala demands was on the minor was colossal.
The prophets of Allah did not come and since, this is at least from the
monsoon, prophets of Allah are protected and
this is what allows us to imitate every single action of theirs because there is no demand possibility of
any form of influence handshake on or the evilness when it comes to the conference.
Now, when it comes to dolla,
dolla man, I have listed certain conditions, these conditions are well known, some of them came out of nowhere from the law era in Israel, the Saudi in a famous book of Hadith, he lists out some of these conditions.
The first thing though, what I must say, from the first, the first condition of toga is anathema.
That a person feels guilt and remorse
over the sin they've committed.
You can't be proud of your sin and expect for your repentance to be sincere.
If first starts with feeling guilty over the wrongs that you've done, setting your moral compass straight. A person that does wrong and justifies it, and is unwilling to accept they've done wrong has helped them, they can keep their words and put it in their own pocket. Allah subhanaw taala. Now that is not in need of any persons insincere statements is.
This is why they'll say that the Toba of a move that is the most logical a person that engages in innovation will find it most difficult to engage in Toba because the integrator views his action to be virtuous. So why would he ever repent from it?
He needs to acknowledge that what he has done is wrong. And the nature of Shavon. and, by extension, the satanic environment that we live in, is to go above and beyond to justify and legitimize every sin that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has clearly stated in Revelation.
Every sin, there is no longer a sin that is viewed as fall in our society. Every action can be justified, if not in our community than in another community and in the third community. By the time you make your way around the world, you'll see that the moral compass of the human beings has been heavily influenced by shape thought. What was understood to be wrong today is okay what is okay tomorrow we'll be wrong. But But unsets our moral compass straight, these are rights, these are wrongs, when you do a right thing that must have worked out and attribute it to Allah, don't attribute it to yourself, appreciate the hard work that went into it, but attribute the action to
Allah because he is the one that is deserving of praise. We got lucky this time. And that was because ALLAH SubhanA wa, tada guided us, and gave us no fever. Otherwise, but I just don't feel any and all actions would be impossible. No person can walk towards Allah without the coding, the permission, the amount of the command.
When you find yourself in gathering, when you find yourself in gatherings of knowledge, when you find yourself in an environment that you are growing, look around, and you'll notice that ALLAH SubhanA, whatnot engaged with you the opportunity to be there, not
the fact that you're here. You're in the masjid, you've prayed a lot and Jamar you're reading and you're in a gathering of knowledge and environment of righteous people, in itself is proof that Allah subhanaw taala without a special problem and his kindness, generosity, his bounty, his favor is directed at you. So keep your head lower down, be humble, and walk the path, the way that deserves to be walked on, fix yourself, pull yourself together. Because opportunities only present themselves so many times before a lot of the majority and takes that and sends it to someone else who will actually appreciate it. And then opportunities that you had, unfortunately will become a
proof against you that you have the chance, and yet you still wasted. But out to do Mooney will do more and full circle as Shavon was saying on the Day of Judgment. Don't blame me blame yourselves. You got yourself in this big hole that you find that you're sitting in right now.
So shaytaan task is to
justify the action. So the human being continues to be swallowed into the earth that you're standing on by yourself. And if truly compromised place, you can't allow that perspective to change. But Allah subhanaw Without us says something is haram in his heart, and that's fine.
People tend to justify sin. So ways lighter on their conscious,
it helps them get through the day. But better than that, rather than finding a faulty way to live, when the stain, What's better is to remove the stain by Coleman. There are two ways the first thing to do with the sin either you can make yourself arrogant and boastful and neglected.
Putting yourself in a greater sin.
Or you can ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for forgiveness, be humble, and try to do better next time. And if you fail,
and if you fail, it's trying. And if you fail, again, there is a wisdom in sin, a person who's able to see that bar. The wisdom is that keeps us
when a person does good deeds, and they're on a roll of doing good, doing good, doing good shape on and comes with another tool from another pathway. He begins to whisper arrogance into their ears, you're special, but that the guys around you, they're all dummies, look at the sisters around you, they're all going to be in the fire of hell look at you, you're so special. So when a person sins and they're able to see the sin and acknowledge the wrong they've done, and they turn back a lot in homes, and it takes them from this inflated, loaded thing down to her, that I'm thankful to Allah for the goods that I do. And I'm also thankful to Allah Who allowed me to see the truth in my sin,
and gave me the ability to turn back what we know as Rasulullah sallallahu it was said of which I believe is
more important than I could say, in our day.
With all the skewing of moral values,
the promise of love it was sent to me God, Allah
was looking at about what about Godzilla? What is the now that allows us to see truth as truth and follow it
and allow us to see falsehood as also avoided? save ourselves from it.
So the first thing is,
we all know that if a person comes to you and says sorry, and they don't really mean it, they have no regret and remorse, that sorry, of theirs is actually an insult. You're trying to keep you off their back and your child says to their mom or dad after having a fuss. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I mean, I'm really upset. I'm sorry. Anybody that's the long term.
That's not the tone for sorry.
Tone for sorry, as you lower your gaze and humble voice, you acknowledge your flaws, carefully measuring your words and you ask yourself
that's the that's
the second condition is
remove yourself from the city.
we were going by order that whenever generally list the second one first, and then without any of them they knew they list that first and then the dabba list that one second, I know the matter and then this basically means to withdraw from the
if you're doing something that's wrong, have ended. You can continue to do wrong. And then say I'm repenting, like someone who is actively hitting into the person and then says that I repented to Allah from oppression. That's the word, someone who's actively stealing people's money and oppressing them. And then at the same time he says, Oh ALLAH forgive me for taking people's money. That doesn't work.
The Bronx for a long while he was salam. He warns us of this he tells us
maybe you said Allah when he was seven he actually said and wondering why upon sort of hard volume of human help your brother, if he is the oppressor, the oppressed the companions that are most vulnerable lagi understand what it means to help the oppressed. What does it mean to help the oppressor the Prophet of Allah says, help him by stopping the oppression
because the moment he stops the oppression, he is now in a better place? Yes to stop the wound, harder volume of human.
The third condition is to commit even if it's just in that moment, commit but sincerely commit
We're not going to do this again,
there's a possibility you might engage in that set again. And that's okay. What matters is this moment, you can't forecast what will happen in the future. If we hedge ourselves against our
sugar, reflect over it and learn your lesson from the past. Neither should you be so terrified of the future that you are paralyzed to act in the present. Focus on where you are today. In this moment, I can turn to Allah and ask Allah for forgiveness, and ask him for strength and ask him to pardon me and D with me in my weak moments, and also in my strong times.
That's what we're looking for. When it comes to a sin, and repenting from it, you must commit to that moment that you have to love, I will not return back to the city.
And you have to be there. This teaches us this thing, this condition is powerful, because this condition shows us that you can't just say stuff in a lot on the fly. Because in order for your stuff, and a lot of count for that condition to be there for that a doable, you need to count,
you have to be all that.
But I'm not going to do this again. I'm going to leave the sin that's by and right there. I have regretted remorse further by and now I'm making a commitment, I'm not going to go back to it. That basically means you're done with this, I see the harm. When we were students.
One time we were sitting in class and one of our machinists, he was running a little late for does. So we were sitting in class and one of my classmates was sat next to me.
He said, You know what, let's use this time and look at the discussion. So one of them asked is how to truly go, that was
truly killing me a
few of us
we should punish
some on Saturday.
So one of the students, he says,
the more I thought about it, the lonely became the sphere. It's more all the other actors that do some work in their own way. But this was the actual.
And the only way for a person to to be
is to change your perspective of
learning the need just as your maternal,
engagement, send out a rule on a chair yourself, sitting on the chair.
And trying to understand why is it that Allah told me this to you, as long as you understand that, once you understand that it's not just to you as an individual, to people that are involved in the same day, you're
the people at large that are being influenced by the ship because every cent has a trickle up?
Why isn't that a lever? So
it breaks trust and trust is the fundamental glue, rather sisterhood of humanity.
If I can't trust the person next to me, because this person has in front of me right at someone else out, or is writing me up to another person. Now this person has crossed off brotherhood in my book, I can't trust this person.
Now the other person who isn't speaking to like other people behind their back this other individual for conversation with this person might be a little bit more tasteless, they may not have the same flavor, not the same joy. But as in terms of longevity, this relationships enemies,
in terms of longevity, that first relationship with a person that is Libra is not going to make it far. If you have any decency, any intellect, you you will descend yourself from that person over a period of time because that person is not trustworthy. Even in your own marriage, you won't be able to have that person at the beginning of the font, maybe a few months, a few years, you'll enjoy that person's companies. But there's only so there's only so much time before the bearable it's morning.
And then you'll feel betrayed and
your person needs that this has an impact.
So once you understand sin and its impact, it'll be much easier to avoid this.
This is what we call it
In psychology, positive and negative associations, positive and negative associations, this is a tried and tested approach. If someone is addicted to something, what you need to do is change their perspective on it through clear messaging, and repetition. If there's clear messaging and repetition, with time, what is viewed praiseworthy in their eyes will be complaint. Case study, smoking cigarettes, this is the reason why that message exists on every pack of cigarettes. With time, no matter how many times you ignore, you might ignore that message for five years. But every time it is a little knock on the door, a little not a little, not a little not. And studies show
that in countries where that message is clearly posted, over a period of time, over a duration, smokers have gone down. It's all about positive and negative. And this is why you have to be careful of your media consumption.
If you're getting if you're consuming TV, and movies and wholesalers abundantly all day, every day, you're allowing people to make positive and negative associations of things that are other than revelation. And this is why the Quran we're told, that's why it's called the hotline.
You guys know what the word of God means? What does that word linguistically mean?
Something that's read something that's read often, frequently. Because the more you read it, those associations. That perspective says that I am here in this world for a limited time, my ultimate abode is the optional. And I'll set up in Montana and Montana, either in person, either person ends up in the Paradise to find themselves, agenda, either you find yourself in paradise, or either you find yourself in the fire in a house, one of those two boats, and I'm going to choose wisely. Allah tells us X, Y and Z 123 are haram avoid them altogether. So as you read them, that perspective settles
and a part of for those of you that are in a role of therapy, or have family with you, this is why you have to have you have to have these conversations together about what is right and what is wrong. What is right, these things are right, helping other person understand what's right here, helping another individual understand what's wrong here. Because once they come to that conclusion, now that focus needs to sit there, but they have to accept the conclusion. They really have to be kept this tell them if you tell someone something's right or wrong, the results may come over a period of time if the other side has a better speaker, your voice will get dealt with no doubt. But
if they come to that conclusion, as a parent, teacher, sibling, if your help if you're able to help a person come to a conclusion, you can walk away because a seat is now in their heart and their their moral compass, their physical will lead them back to what's right. So an awesome Are
you committed to not engaging in
the fourth thing that what am i They say London, Milan, this is more specific to that, when it comes to violating the rights of other human beings. One of the conditions is that you then return those rights. You've taken something from someone give it back to them. If you said something to someone, apologize to them. And don't let the fact that they said something to you. stop you from apologizing for the wrongs that you've done.
If you don't settle the matter in the dunya, you don't you know, if you don't settle there, the matter in the dunya. Ultimately, all matters will be something
there's a whole day dedicated to this referred to as your
whole day dedicated to this, all justice will be served. And the fourth condition that they say is for your Toba to occur before that window is shut.
Pursue loss and a lot more than he tells us in one narration
that Allah subhanahu adatta will accept the Toba of the servant madam you've heard a little bit
and that can come at any moment for years. Whatever dear students from
Shahir his brother who was on
a lot last week helped me man and didn't wake up.
Let's go make
a lot of companies up when a set is delivered to the lamina Yeah,
So I had that either How about a woman most
heart, Hopper either woman most all in need to earn while again and
that a person was told about the time of their death. Allah says lazy. There is no Toba for that person who does know about at that point your Toba should occur earlier on in your life
while the opportunity exists, day or night, that's up to you. And wondering why the Prophet audience after some says in Allah Yep, so to get a woman lady, the tube pharmacy in the heart, Allah subhanaw taala extends his hand and forgiveness for those during the life for those who sin during the day, way up to the other home in a hurry to do almost anything. And Allah subhanaw taala extends is had a forgiveness during the day for those who wish to repent for their sins of the night.
Have that rush transferring money via until the sun sets from the West, when the sun sets from the west, from the signs of the final hour, sorry, when the sun rises from the west questions, when the sun rises from the west from the signs of the final hour, then that door will be closed and there will be no Toba anymore.
So with this, I leave you this advice that as well a lot of approaches. And as those days come, close the days of polygon,
utilize the time that you have to make the right
turn to Allah and ask Allah
you deserve this. This is something that you should give to yourself as a welcoming overlord.
That I'm doing this for myself. And then once you experience the sweetness of October,
build this into your daily routine
that you do is the bar every single day
is the thought is so important.
Without this, only Allah knows what we will face on the Day of Judgment. deeds that we have no idea.
I think you know, the other day, sometime back, I was driving the car and the kids were in the car. And we went through one of those car wash things. Kids love with all the colored balls in the car, meaningless color, but they love it right. And all these things like a monster small in your car from all directions. They have to use story every time and how we endure to come out on the other end successful.
So we went through one of those car washes the car was nice and clean.
I think like less than a week later, I ran out of gas I pull up to a gas station. And I said to one of the boys speaking they have a gas issues to clean the windshield to get that thing and clean windshield.
So he said about we just washed the car.
And I said to them, this is the reality of life. You clean something and
casual occurrences happen.
And as a result of that your windshield gets dirty again. And this is why in our theme we are told to diploma holder.
And I said to them every time you clean this windshield for the rest of your life, I want you to remember the lesson.
You just keep keep cleaning, keep clean, keep the
person brushing their teeth, like a person washing their hair, like a person cutting their nails. It's us removing filth and the lesson is that every time you remove your body in a physical sense you should remember the spiritual cleansing that is required as well.
A lot of them are just set in the law has been
a lot more challenging with Barbie which are in the middle with a
robot mirror the lobby along with Hollywood or LA maybe from those who repent frequently.
And the results are what make up the wall after removal after washing himself. And that first item that I referenced is
what would they say to us?
Yeah, but I according to the unconcealed was revealed regarding that people have pulled up and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was
Ask because it says right the mushroom who says to Me Oh William and I have wonderful multifeed agenda and if you don't know who Allah
so the commandments as from Allah why is it that Allah is praising that people have pulled up so in one rely on the Prophet of Allah says, because when they use Ninja when they clean themselves after using the bathroom, they use water and stones. They will use these clay stones to remove impurity and then some people will use water but these people will use both. So Allah praise them for being excessively clean and going above and beyond. And that's physical impurity. But Allah, Allah here with the lobby,
you guys that sort of pseudo by and extroverted and a lot of their praises them for that
kind of stuff, and make this from one markers sort of loan
Inshallah, we will be putting a pause to our Tuesday have fun.
