Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah Allah meanwhile, we won't be in a stream or suddenly want to suddenly more or less Tamil MBI you are emammal mousseline Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine Allah Melissa Illa manager Altia who Salah one teta Jianjun Husna either she testicular or BSC voila for us here Waterman bill here we can have studied, we thank Allah herbalism he will Jalan for having gathered us here today once again. And we ask Allah subhanahu wa Tada to surround us with the mala Iike and to cause his mercy and his Akina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR alayhi wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has
mentioned with them.
The heart is like a clean slate.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in El Camino inner loop Mina neither of them then cannot look at on some of the feet can be when a servant commits a sin when a black.is placed on his heart, for Intel bonus for Intel, Obi Wan Hazara so if he turns back to Allah subhanho wa taala. And he leaves that sin was still Farah, Shakti lemon. And he seeks forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala his heart is purified of that were in that zone that had you will never be held Kullu and if he carries on and he commits another sin and another, his heart becomes engulfed with that darkness the black spots keep being put onto the heart until the heart becomes dark, so that he
can run and Lydia's cool Lucha and Lady vicar, the Kerala houfy kita, he can berwarna Allah Kulu beam. So that is the darkness that Allah subhanahu Attallah says, Behold, there is a stain upon the hearts there is a stain upon the hearts, you see, this heart is such that if we purify it, it will be purified or if we allow it to become dark, it will become dark. So Allah subhanahu wa taala actually warns us. Yeah,
you Lavina and Debbie are all going to show you on Oh you who have believed don't follow the footsteps of shaytaan. You see Shavonne leads you from one sin to the next one. And from that sin, He takes you to the following and in between, he does not want you to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala because he knows that Allah Allah is that he will Jalil is most forgiving, most merciful, so he won't allow you to go back to that Toba. He presents to you another opportunity to sin so you commit another sin. Now your heart has got two dots, three dots, 100 Dots 1000 Dots and it just keeps getting darker and darker. Now
you see, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala describes NIFA hypocrisy to us. And he says why mean and see my poor know him and
he won't be near me kill one. Meaning you call their own alone how levena
one after their own in
Fuson Sharon and from amongst the people are those who say they have believed and they do not believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala if you allow yourself to continue to let your heart become darker and darker, you reach a point where you begin to lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala you heard your own Allah, They deceive Allah subhanahu wa taala they feel like they are deceiving Allah, yet they are deceiving none other than themselves. So hypocrisy does not enter the heart immediately. But if you allow yourself to go from sin, to sin, to sin to sin, these are the footsteps of Shavonne that eventually lead you to becoming a hypocrite. So you
You something in front of the people you behave a certain way but when you go and you are alone all you know is all you know is sin. Yes the phone I mean and nasty one is the phone I mean Allah. They hide away from the people. They hide away from the people their sins but they don't hide away from Allah subhanho wa Taala so it's a progression such that hypocrisy enters the heart and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us methylome kamistan in the stone clad no vellum.
I will there
will be no ring him whatever can be Illuminati, Larry, we'll see you soon. The example is like that of a man who has kindled a fire. You see Imam is rekindled within your heart, you have this ability to see everything that is within, in your in your sight, it is clear the path ahead is bright and shining. And when you commit sin after sin and you don't care about Allah subhanahu Attallah Allah takes away that ability for you to see. So you can no longer see and this is why ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says that it is as though they have kindled a fire. Now a fire has two qualities, two qualities. It has the ability to heat, it has the ability to burn, and it also has the ability to
cause light. So if you are in a dark room and you have a brand of fire, you know a fire would the stick, right? And it is bright like a torch you take it and you can see everything around you but it also provides heat Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, Lucha Allahu be newly him. Allah subhana wa Tada takes away the light, but the heat of the fire remains why? Why does the heat of the fire remain? Because the sins continue to burn that person? They continue to meet that person. And we've all been or a lot of us shall I say have been to a place that is so dark so dark, and we begin to question Allah subhanho wa Taala it will Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive me. That is when shaytan has got you
right where he needs you to be. He wants you to believe that Allah won't forgive you. He wants you to believe that Allah subhanahu wa taala will not open up his doors of mercy for you. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says differently.
While long will you read what I have to die Kuhn while you read Lavina Tebbe Runa Shahar, Swati Tammy Luma Isla, now the Allah wants to forgive you. Allah subhanho wa Taala is waiting for you to turn back to him. That's all you have to do. Ya Allah I've committed sincere Allah and communicating with you Yeah, Allah, I want to let go of the sins that I am committing every day, day in day out, I'm a sinner Allah, talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala pour your heart out to him. And as a result, even the plot of shaytan will be lifted from you, meaning he will keep away from you why? He knows every time you commit a sin, it is an opportunity for you to gain Allah subhanahu ATOD has mercy
because when you commit that sin, you turn back to Allah subhana wa Tada. You've made it such that even if you commit the sin 100 times a day 100 times you go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you know what the Hadith could see tells us you have to look at them or Malli Malli the son of Adam says, Sorry.
In fact, the Hadith says that
when the son of Adam commits a sin either Abdullah zambon Estelle Ferrara bow, oh, he knows the Hadith Bootsy actually says Alima Alima Abdi another Benya, who will be then byo firouzja Number 34 Tula who when he commits the sin and he turns back to Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says, My servant knows he's got a load that takes to task for the sins and He forgives the sins. So I have forgiven him through ma but then he goes back to the sin. So Allah subhanahu wa taala says the same My servant knows he's got a lord that forgives him and a lord that takes to task for the sins I have forgiven him. And this continues and continues until Allah subhanho wa Taala says fairly Armel
Masha, let him do whatever he wants from today because I
have forgiven him because Allah subhanahu Attallah knows that you will always turn back to him regardless of what you have done. But if we allow ourselves not to turn back to Allah subhanahu Attallah and to ignore the sin, such that it becomes small in our eyes is this rather than the who he looks at it as something small, something usual, I do it every day anyways. So it becomes usually in our lives, the heart becomes darker and darker, and it becomes harder for you to turn back to Allah subhanahu wa taala and Allah subhanahu wa taala continues, those verses will kill so even as
you feed him the 109 to do about or like a dung pole from the heavens, a thunderstorm in which there is lightning and thunder and darkness. And Allah subhanahu Attallah says,
Your God one, boy after four have also whom the lightning is about to snatch away their eyesight they can no longer see could learn.
Sure movie well either
him thumb, that every time there is light, you know, when the lightning strikes, you are able to see everything is light around you. So you move a few steps. And then it is dark again. And these are opportunities that Allah subhanahu wa taala provides even the hypocrite with even the one who in his heart he doesn't believe but he proclaims and professors to believe he provides this opportunity to such people. When the light is their moments of guidance, enter his life he can see for a few moments. And then the light is gone. All of a sudden, he goes back to his ways he goes back to deceiving and lying and cheating. But Allah subhanahu wa taala has granted us opportunity before we
reach that point. The main reason I chose this topic today is because we find a lot of people questioning today asking, questioning Allah subhanaw taala his existence. The questions previously was such that people would say, you know, I've got a girlfriend or if I listen to music, how do I prevent myself from doing this? I feel bad about what I'm doing. Today people are questioning and asking, why do we worship Allah? Why should we worship Him? Not to say that they shouldn't question not to say that they shouldn't ask those have knowledge, but they question within the heart. And they keep frequenting this question over and over and over again until the heart reaches a point
where disbelief in Allah subhanahu Attallah. Before you allow yourself to get to that point, know that they are footsteps that shaytan is taking you down. They are there is a pathway that he is leading you down sin after sin after sin until sins mean nothing anymore. And that is when the doubts into the heart. He begins to tell you Allah won't forgive you. That's the first thing that he does. Allah won't forgive you. So now you believe you beyond the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling you we are a baddie and Rena Assad while forcing him lot of Ghana to Mira matin.
Oh, you will have transgressed against yourself You've committed a lot of sin. Oh my dear servants, Oh, my dear servants, don't lose hope in the Mercy of Allah subhanahu Attallah. You see, this is Allah, this is his narrative. This is what he's telling you. And do you see where what the devil is telling you? No, no, no, Allah will forgive you, you are too bad for Allah to forgive. So the point being, always turn back to Allah subhanahu wa to Allah. And you know, some people, some people actually reach the point where they lose hope.
And they no longer believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala and sometimes this happens. So, there are two aspects here. One is what you do and what you have control over the sins that you commit, and that which is that which you have control over. And then there is the other aspect which is that which happens to you regardless, so Allah subhanahu wa taala decreed for your home to be burnt down. Allah subhanahu wa taala decreed for your business to collapse and for you to go bankrupt. Allah subhanahu wa taala decreed for you to become sick with cancer. So these are things that are out of your control. This is also a point where the devil comes to you and says, You
see if Allah was so merciful, then why did he
Do this to you. If Allah was so merciful, when then why did he cause for you to have cancer? You are only 24 years old, why are you dying from this cancer? You see, so he enters doubt into your mind through that which you cannot control. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, The one who has reached the point where he feels Allah will not help him. Allah will not help him. Man Can I have
someone who loves to feed dunya will, he'll value and do the visa bearing illus?
In soon I'm Malia. Both are familiar.
Her New Haven que Doom is the the one who reaches that point where he feels Allah will not help him, let him tie a rope up to the ceiling and hanged himself. Let him cut off his breath. Let him hang himself and see if that will remove the anger that he has within his heart. You see as a human being when you start questioning in this manner, and you will start asking about the existence of Allah and why Allah is not helping you and questioning the that is not your place. Because where you see the picture from is only a big soul. You don't see the entire picture. You don't realize what Allah subhanahu Attallah has in store for you. So you are seeing it from this one incident in your life
where your house burned down or you had cancer or something bad happened to you. And you judge Allah subhanahu Attallah Allah saying, kill yourself if you want to see if that will remove this hardship from you, you will enter into more hardship. Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking to us from the point where he sees everything where he sees everything in totality. So Allah knows that a and Afterlight life exists. He knows that when we die, we will be raised up again. And he has told us this and all that. That occasion was in your life was a test from Allah subhanahu Attallah all you have to do is ride the wave trusting that Allah subhanahu wa taala will bring about good times. You see, we blame
Allah subhanho wa Taala for these things, Why did Allah subhanahu Attallah give me cancer? Why did Allah subhanahu Attallah cause my house to be burnt down? But when it comes to the goodness in our lives? Why don't we then attribute it to Allah subhanahu Attallah Why don't we then say Allah gave me a good business to start with in the first place. I made profit. I had good days. But we questioned Allah subhanahu wa taala when Allah subhanahu wa taala created human beings, the angels had the very same question. Tejon fee may have seen goofy why as we could deem, I wanna know knows that beer from will be handy. One Agnolo said before we handicap one on the Sulak are you placing on
Earth those will kill each other those will cause corruption. So Allah subhanahu wa taala and we we the angel said we glorify you Oh Allah, there is no need to create these people that are going to kill each other. Allah subhanho wa Taala had one response in me.
Allah Tala Moon, I know that which you do not know. Allah subhanahu wa Tada sees the entire picture. So he told the angels I know that which you don't know. Don't question me. Don't doubt me. Trust that Allah subhanahu wa taala knows what he is doing. And that is what Iman is all about. That is what faith and belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala is all about. I'll end off with one more one point in sha Allah, Candela Judo New City, Florida and fct, lawsuit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us of a man who was very bad against himself. He committed sin after sin. They are no sins that he left behind. He committed all of the sins had either Hallelujah to Lua until death came to
him. Personally Benny he the anime tufa Cooney from Matano Nizam mother rune if you read that when I die, get hold of me burn me pound me into a fine ash and then scatter my ashes into the wind for Allah healer in pudiera. Your biller you are the Bernina as the bamboo ohada So Allah He if Allah is going to take hold of me after this is going to punish me in a way he has not punished anyone before Furama Mata for de la vida Alec, so when he died, this was done to him.
For Amar Allahu Allah, Allah eg Mary Murphy came in. So on the day of Tiama, Allah subhanahu wa taala will order and command the earth, gather that which is in you have this man for either who are immune. So then he will be standing before Allah subhanahu Attallah and Allah asks him one question, Muhammad Allah Carla Nelson, what is it that made you do what you did? You commanded your people to burn you to pound you into a fine ash and to throw you scatter you into the winds? Why did you do it?
So he says, uh, she had to kind of be, it was the fear of you, oh my Lord, for her for Allah, Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala forgave him. This man doubted a quality of Allah subhanahu wa taala he doubted the ability of Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring him back to life. Either I mean, what
are you alone? And in our own, our
own when we are dead bones and ashes, and we will we then be brought back to life? All the people of the past our forefathers will they be brought back to life?
To your own? He says yes, most definitely you will be brought back to life. You see, this man doubted that quality of Allah subhanahu wa taala. But because he did it out of the fear of Rob bull is that even Jalon Allah subhanahu Attallah has forgiven him. Now, the message to myself and yourselves from this hadith is one,
don't allow yourself to reach that point where you do not seek forgiveness from Allah subhanahu Attallah you believe you've committed the sin so many times that you cannot return that to Allah subhanahu Attallah secondly, if you have reached that point, where you are doubting Allah, Allah will is that you will Jalon know that Allah is still ready to forgive you Allah, he's still ready to accept you turn back to him seek forgiveness from him. And I tell you what, the atheists don't have the answers either. If they believe that there is no God, and there is nothing and there is no life after they don't have the answer either. And you know what's amazing, if you go back to the books,
they come to this conclusion that they should be an A god equation, a god equation. They don't believe in Allah subhana wa taala. So they believe that the universe is to perfect human beings or to perfectly created for there to be nothing beyond the universe that created this. And they call it the god equation. And they don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala in Kerala, demon Babita was King, not Allah de Sha. Indeed you do not guide whomsoever you wish. But Allah is the one who guides whomsoever He wishes. You see, sometimes no matter how much you shout at a person blue in the face, you can go blue in the face shouting at him, explaining to him Listen, it doesn't make sense what
you're saying. If guidance is not decreed for that person, it's over. It's gone because they wanted misguidance Allah subhanahu Attallah gave them so the very fact that we are here in the masjid today we worship Allah subhana wa Taala we come back to him from time to time is a point that we should be grateful for. It's something that we should thank Allah subhanahu wa taala for Ya Allah, Allah, Allah, I thank You that You gave me the ability to see and to believe because after death, it's too late for everybody. May Allah subhanahu Attallah grant us the ability to see the guidance and may Allah subhanahu wa taala open our eyes, ears minds and hearts mean also Allahu wa sallam Obara,
