Jumuah by Shaykh Ibraheem Menk, Zimbabwe. In this khutbah, the Sheikh talks about the correlation between sinning and repentance.
Exposing our sins voluntarily is the norm of the times we live in. In fact, we brag of our sins with pride and arrogance, not least realising that exposing our sins in the dunya will result in the removal of Allah’s cover on the day of Akhirat.
Thus it is necessary that we listen to the respected Sheikh’s talk as he shares with us his knowledge regarding this issue. InshaAllah we shall leave this khutbah with realisation and repentance.
serene Nabina Muhammad, Allah
OBS Sinhala still with me, Bill Hi, can
we send Allah subhana wa tada for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to shower His mercy upon us, and to surround us with the angels and to raise us with the melodica with the MBR Allahumma Salatu was Salam and the righteous people. I mean,
every son of Adam is a sinner.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned this in a Hajji.
He says, couldn't do Benny, the mustapa
that every son of Adam is a frequent sinner, he frequently makes mistakes.
Well, you will have power in
and the best of sinners, or the best of those who make mistakes were born. They are those who frequently seek repentance. Frequently seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala they frequently turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So, although sudo was a lot more I think he was Salaam explains to us the nature of man.
He is a being that will frequently make mistakes. And we know this because we all have our own difficulties and hardships with sins that we have. We have certain sins that we are struggling with. And we know that this is the nature of man regularly from time to time he slips up, he makes an error. He makes mistakes. But Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that the best of people is the one who turns frequently to Allah subhanho wa Taala he makes a mistake. He turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala he seeks forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. This action shows that this person's heart is sound. This person is alarm system that a lot of kind of water Allah put
inside of him. That is sound because the minute he makes a mistake, he realizes I've done something wrong here. I've wronged myself. So let me turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sysmon sobre to has been a Jew who was a truce a year two who further ecomo Luqman, the one whose sin makes him sad, it grieves him.
And the one who's good deed makes him happy. That is a movement.
So we sound system or the the alarm system that a lot of kind of was created inside of us is intact. This is the film that Allah subhanho wa Taala created inside of us. Now, when a person sins and they don't turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala hide, they leave it, they may feel bad initially. They may may feel that I've done something wrong here, but they don't turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala the next time that they commit that sin,
they become weaker in faith.
And what happens they begin to think that the sin doesn't mean that much. They think that what I am doing is not such a big deal. So then sin once again and again the sadness and the grief, grief that they feel becomes less they begin to become used to that sin. So they continue sinning again and again until they become numb to the sin. They don't feel anything. They feel that I am doing nothing wrong. In fact, they don't even think about it. When they do that sin. They don't even think about Allah subhanho wa Taala after the sin and they continue in that manner until we
hearts become hot.
Now when a person becomes numb to the sin that he is committing, that is a very dangerous thing.
Because now, you don't even realize that I'm sinning. You don't even acknowledge that I'm sinning. And what happens as he begins to talk about the sin that he is committing. So he begins to go out to the people. Hey, you know what I'm doing? I'm doing this. And I'm doing that. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He mentioned this in a hadith. He says, cool known Mati morava, that every single one of mine is forgiven. He has the chance and the opportunity to seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Mujahideen, except for those who expose themselves they go out and tell people that I did this and I did that. And he says, we're in the middle Miuccia hottie and
indeed from exposing oneself, and Dr. mela Raja Ruby lady Angela, that a man does a deed at night. From
from a data yes to who abou then we spend the night with his are
for use be who were Shifu sequela he is. So he wakes up in the morning and he snatches the cover of Allah subhanho wa Taala of himself. He goes to the people and says yeah, phoolan Oh, so and so. I mean, to bury her together What? I did a sin last night, like this and like that. So sudo la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that such a person is not even part of the people that have an opportunity to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says
all of my oma are forgiven in Al Mujahideen, except those who go out and expose themselves, Allah subhana wa tada COVID you at night, you come in the morning, and you say last night I was drinking at such and such a pub last night, I was talking to such and such a girl or a person of the opposite sex. Last night I was doing this and I was doing that such a person will not be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because they have gone out in the community. And they have openly bragged about the sin that they have committed. If we take an example, and we think of it
when a parent tells the child that you are not allowed to do such and such an action, and that child knows that his parent doesn't want him to do this. He goes into a room he hides and he does that sin or he does that thing that he has been
told not to do.
This is bad, but it is not such an evil condition.
But an evil condition is when the child comes and stands in front of the parent and says yeah, I'm doing what you told me and told me not to do yeah, I'm doing what you forbid me to do. That is arrogance. So when a person Allah subhanho wa Taala has covered him, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given his sins away. He's giving him giving him an opportunity to
ask for my forgiveness, and I will forgive you. But he goes out there. And he openly brags about it. It is it is as though he say I don't care about the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The reason why I talk about this today, dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we have this bad habit. I've noticed it amongst the youth, and many of the people we have this bad habit. We have been
tested by a symbol. And what happens Allah subhanho wa Taala protects us we have some form of sin that we are committing on our phones, our mobile phones. Allah subhanho wa Taala protects us he covers us.
And we go on to Facebook. We go on to Twitter, we go on to Instagram, we go on to WhatsApp and we say, you know last night I did this and I did that will love you sometimes with the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Last night I was engaged in this and I was engaged in that. We have been tested with the sin of music for example. We've been tested with the sin of Xena and what happens not only do it commit that Zima but we'll ah Here we go. Then we see you know we put our pictures up there. This is the woman that I committed Xena.
This is the music that I
listening to what to learn what kind of arrogance is this? What kind of hearts Do we have
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says many, many truly I mean condition is
the one who has been tested with some of these dirty deeds
and the aesthetic visit Sri Lanka they let him cover himself with the city and the cover of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon him. Allah subhanho wa Taala loves you. And he's why he gave you that cover. Allah some kind of want to Allah wants to give you an opportunity to repent. That is why he covered you, unless you kind of what Allah wants to preserve, Your Honor. That is why he covered you yet you go out there and you see, but God will I will remove that I don't care that is Africans. So
when a person begins to talk about these sins, other people begin to follow this person and they begin to see that this person is doing it anyways. So it begins to spread amongst the community it begins to spread amongst the Muslim in and Allah subhanho wa Taala when talking about the story of Asia, how the alarm rang her and what happened with her. He says in malaria, you hit bone and Tasha alpha heisha to fillerina M and indeed those who love for the Fantasia immortality to spread amongst those who believe level Mazza any money, they will have a painful punishment for dunya when they will have a painful punishment not only in this dunya but in the earth as well. So it depends
person's punishment begins from this dunya and they begin to spread this disease amongst the people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, says Lola Semyon to who had you not heard it and said, Colton, Maja kulana and Mexican llama viharaya Subhana Kahala butanna Navin, it is not for us to speak about this. It is the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that these hypocrites are talking about. It is not for us to speak about it to panic Glory be to You. Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala This is a great accusation has doubled down on Avi. So you would have kept quiet about it. You have you begin to have this love of the sim to the extent that you want to spread it amongst others. And this
is a very satanic quality. This is a very devilish quality when she upon
was a cursed.
Not only did he say I will disobey you to the end of my life, but he says yeah, Allah, I will cause all of these people Sabir Exotica with a an oath he took an oath with the honor of Allah subhanho wa Taala Serbian Exotica the UE and I will destroy it and I will lead them all astray.
So, this is a very safe tannic and devilish quality when a person is evil in himself. And not only is he evil, but he wants to spread that evil amongst the people. We're lucky if we have certain sins and we all have our sins, if we have certain sins between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala give them between you and Allah subhana wa Taala you have hope you have hope. But the minute you go out and start telling other people will love you What does that mean? Do you think that Allah subhanahu attallah does not see you? Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching and he becomes angry when you do this in Allah Hall. Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala he has emotions. He has he is of Rasulullah sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam says this, well how are you to love me and yet I love the female
and the Rayleigh, the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala is when a servant falls into that which he has made, how long for him what off when you go out and talk to the people about that.
Now, for those who have spoken about these sins, with ignorance, not knowing that this is a sin in in and of itself, then these people still have hope. Because the message is loud and clear. It has been clearly conveyed to them by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the minute they hear of this, and the minute they hear of the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and they stop Allah subhanho wa Taala. He grants them that forgiveness. So every single person has a chance and an opportunity to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now,
Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam. At his time there was a man. In fact, there was a drought. And this drought had become so severe that the people came to Musa alayhis salam
Solomon said, you need to call out to your call out to Him and ask Him to send rain upon us. So musala in salatu salam took out, took all the people out to the desert, and they went out there and they began to call to Allah subhanho wa Taala they perform their Salah, and they began to call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yeah, Allah give us rain. Yeah, Allah with your mercy give us rain, and the rain doesn't come. So Mossad in salatu salam, he looks up to the skies. And he says, Yeah, Allah is it that my level has become low with you. You will not answering my dua and Allah subhanho wa Taala says that there is a man from amongst you, that has been sending for 40 years. And this man
has not repented to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So
musala in Salatu, salam, he announces he says that whoever this person is, let him get out of here because he is preventing the rain from coming down. Let him remove himself go away. We don't need him.
And this man, he begins to think to himself, he understands and he knows that I am the person. He begins to think to himself that 40 years Allah subhanho wa Taala covered me, Allah subhanho wa Taala protected me. He didn't expose me to the people, and here I am. So he begins to feel a deep sense of regret. And immediately the skies open up, and the rain falls down. And musalla is Salatu was Salam. He looks up and he says, Yeah, I love
this man hasn't even come out yet. So Allah subhana wa tada says to him, that I protected him when he was a sinner, and I covered him when he was a sinner, shall I expose him now that he has repented to bullies that you injure
their brothers and sisters in Islam, this is the power of holding your secrets between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala holding the sins that you have between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala Don't let anyone ever convince you that there is anyone besides Allah subhanho wa Taala that forgives sins, He says we're levy barito but I mean anybody and he is the one who accepts repentance from his servants from his slaves. So when no matter how great your sins are, no matter how bad your sins are, you may have reached the merkabah and the level of ship and association of partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. But if you turn to Lockwood is that he was jealous before you breathe, he loves Allah
subhanho wa Taala will most definitely forgive you. So don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and let us hide our sins, every single one of us are sinners, and I will end of one Cadiz of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that gives us much hope. A man that does not have Toba he doesn't actually repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala before he died, such a man will come on the day of piano
and he will have a man in his heart. So Allah subhanho wa Taala you will bring him closer and he will come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala until he is in the comfort of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah subhana wa Taala will look at him and say,
Well, you did this and that sin, is it true? And he will say yes, you will acknowledge that I have done this. And I'll also kind of what Allah will continue you did this and that sin and he will say yes, I have done that sin. And Allah subhana wa Taala will say certain to her like coffee dounia for her a few
that I protected you and I covered them for you in the dunya nobody knew about them. And here I am forgiving you today. Well lucky this is something that gives us hope this man would be a man that didn't even turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala but he just kept quiet about the sins that he had. He was shameful and he was ashamed of the fact that I am doing something wrong. So this gives us much hope. May Allah subhanahu Allah protect us And may Allah subhanho wa Taala cover our sins. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to meet him with a clean slate. I mean, what Salalah selama Baba, Amina Mohammed. He was like big marine
