Brothers and sisters in Islam that was a very generous man in kurush in Mecca before my boss in NaVi salatu salam before the Prophet route of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
very wealthy, very rich. Imagine he would actually offer food, accommodation for all of the hygiene.
He would just come and say I'm going to feed everyone who's coming for Hajj this year. His name is Abdullah hidden.
fuse I am a Muslim. I shall have your loved one as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding this man. She said to him, your rasulillah or messenger of Allah? May Allah sallallahu dibujo de Haan what Allah subhana wa Taala will do with Abdullah
inna who can is not what
he used to do, and then she listed a lot of the things which he would do.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Who am in Adelina he's at Willow Hill.
Why are rasulillah what is there was the inner who Nauvoo lemmya full Yeoman are up bill Lee happy God. He did not say one day Oh ALLAH forgive me.
He did not ask for forgiveness.
He did not say
I'm doing something wrong.
One day, one time he did not do it.
Why would a person refrain from asking Allah subhana wa Taala to forgive him?
The scholars mentioned to me in reasons.
Reason number one,
the lack of the knowledge of Allah
that you don't know a lot like this man, and that would apply to our man here.
He doesn't know who Allah is. Consequently, he actually went and he worshipped idols and this is why by the way, is that well, Phil, because he used to worship idols and that's the main reason
not just asking forgiveness. But he used to worship a lot will also mana.
Why would a person go and worship and that will also mean that because he lacks the knowledge of the true God. He doesn't know Allah subhana wa.
The other reason brothers and sisters in Islam which may drive
a person or a Muslim, not to seek forgiveness from Allah, that he lacks the knowledge regarding the nature of his sin.
He doesn't see what he's doing wrong.
He says it's okay. It's okay for me to do that. That's not a sin.
addressing the first angle here, brothers, brothers and sisters in Islam are the first reason
the knowledge of Allah Subhana Allah is a key for you to come up with that act of Toba. The act of repentance coming back to Allah subhana wa tada is a key.
Why? Because there are Muslims who fall into the trap of Raja
Elijah to be accurate,
meaning that he commits the sin. He is 100% into sins. And when he is reminded, he will say brother Allah will forgive Allah for Rahim.
Allah forgives all sins. It is true. There is no question about it that Allah forgives all sins and allies of hudl Rahim but this should not be a license for you to continue sinning. That should be a gate for you to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala Maha like why is Allah subhana wa Taala told us in the Quran that he forgives sins He is merciful. He also punish his nephew
Be a birdie any animal fool Raheem or another be who will either will
inform my slaves or Mohammed Salah to sell them that I am the Forgiving, the Merciful. But meanwhile, I am the one who punishments and my punishment is painful.
Mercado laka for the Russo Lehman public in Arabic Allahumma sirotkin was a carbon airy
and this has been already the pattern, the pattern all along with all the messengers, what been revealed to Mohammed is exactly what was revealed to the messengers before you that Allah forgives, but Allah also publishes for the knowledge of Allah subhana wa tada will not get you to fall into the trap of erasure that you say it's okay for me to do this. You don't have to pray five times a day, you're gonna have to his account, I will forgive. The other side of this is the other side of this, the other end of this, that you actually give up on a lot to forgive you.
That's where the lack of knowledge can contribute to you. Not repenting, not coming back to Allah, that you say, Man, I've done so much. I've been committing adultery for years. I've been I've been drinking for years. I don't think Allah will accept me that. That's
too much. I don't do much.
No, that is not true either.
You have all sorts of low burn, avid Zulu, aka anana Santa. If your sins imagine this, if you pile up sins, that it will reach the habit.
And you come and say Forgive me, Allah will accept you back.
And pay attention to this error
is small law hit the web. The name of Allah in the web, at the web, was there in the Koran, or was mentioned in the Quran 11 times to begin with 11 times and was paired with two names and one time was mentioned by itself was paired with a small law hurrah, ie
that word and rahima that were around him at the wearable Rahim the three derivatives the three forms
nine times and one time only within Hakeem Futura New Moon Hakeem and one time by itself is solid enough. We're at NASA una de de la fuerza faseb, behind the Arabic our stuff a few in the vuca world. Why nine times with a Rahim. Why?
Because Allah created you and me.
And he knows that we're sinners.
Listen, if you assume that one day you're going to be perfect, that means your test is over. That means it's time for you to die
and go because you're done.
If you do not commit sins, Allah will kick you and will bring others who will do it. But listen, after they do what they do. Yes, stop. They will ask for forgiveness and they will go for Allah Subhana Allah Allah created us and he knows that we're weak. Well holy insan Oh boy.
Wow, Holy moly, insane. Oh, boy, if man was created out of weakness or in a state of weakness to begin with, but that is why Allah subhana wa Taala showed us mercy by legislating Toba repentance meaning to come back to him another way or another wisdom behind
coupling or combining at the web with a Rahim. The scholars they say
and pay attention to this carefully here. Pay attention to this.
Allah loves to be merciful than punishing
Allah loves to give
then the Bing
sir I have a llama la he middlemen
are rough Metro a hub boo Illa la he mean and other
and when we said when me
newsone what do we do?
We distance ourselves from Allah. Allah doesn't show us mercy anymore. Because when you commit that sin, Allah Subhana Allah doesn't show you mercy anymore, doesn't give you any more. Now, when you come back to Allah when you repent, when you return to Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala returned to bless you to show you mercy. And this is why the scholars understood ill for a healer he in that context.
Imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala is more joyful because of you coming back to him. Because of you leaving the sin and coming back to Allah subhana wa Tada, you're abandoning the sin, He is more joyful than this man.
Who is this man?
Imagine someone who had to travel or move from one place to another. And he had to cross the desert. And the old days for you to move you place all your livelihood in the back of a camp. So he passed by a desert. He got a little bit tired. He went to sleep beneath a tree.
He did not tie the camel. His camel is gone.
In one of the wording of this hurry here what he did like harder. And that is
looking for the cap.
looking for all the look, because without that gamble, he's dead.
Look how the prophets Allah Salim expressed this in the Hadith from a Karna Island.
He became certain that he's going to die.
Imagine you become certain that I'm gonna die. And then you go and choose what
you choose your place of death. Okay, let me go and die under that tree where I decided to sleep to begin with. I imagine he closed his eyes and he opens his eyes and he sees the camel ride in his life. Standing next to his head. He grabs the reins of the camel.
And he looks up and he says, Oh Allah, you are my Lord. And honestly, that's what he meant to say. Understand that is what the words but that's what he meant to say.
He ended up saying what Oh Allah, you're my slave and I'm your Lord. Why did he do this
mean * that will follow. He made a mistake because of excessive joy. Imagine this. Allah Subhana Allah is more joyful,
with you coming back to him than this man. Bear in mind also that a lot of the need you
see a lot the man needed the camera. The man need know a lot as needed. If the first of you and the last of you can have a Muslim would have the heart of the most wicked.
Imagine the most wicked human being ever created.
This will not take away anything from Allah. And vice versa.
If we all would have the heart of the most righteous will add nothing in the Kuru fair in a law honey
comb. If you disbelieve alized all sufficient a lot of the need you will call me in the coup to fill out the journey of
Why? What is the wisdom Allah in spite of this, he doesn't need us. But he is more joyful than this man. Why? Because Allah loves to give. Allah loves to show mercy. What Allah Allah Allah Allah
to Allah belongs the best example and the heavens and the earth. I'll give you an example you imagine you have a child, your son, and of course all of us love our children and you know your son Daddy, can you give me $1 you actually love to give you take the dollar out. Here you go. You know? What if you know that he takes the dollar and buys drugs with it?
He goes and he drinks with it.
Will you still give him the dollar?
No, that likewise when you sin.
Allah is not going to give you any more. Allah is not going to bless you anymore. You know, he's still gonna come and ask you that Can I can I have $1
you're gonna say no, but a painful No. Because inside you you wanna give him I love my voice. I love my child I want to give you but I know if I give him he's gonna do up with it.
Likewise, when when when you know that when you learn that he stopped doing this
I'm joyful now I can give him now I can give him and I know he's not going to mess around with it. That's, that's exactly why brothers and sisters in Islam and Rama, Rama of Allah Subhana Allah, that sometimes it's like you go to a doctor, you know and, and, and you have some diabetes or something and it tells you you can eat this you can eat that you can eat this you can eat that you can eat, it's out of the mercy. He's trying to keep you in good shape, even though you love you love to eat that stuff, and it will bring you it's gonna tell you that so Pinilla when you return to Allah subhana wa Taala with the act of repentance, Allah Subhana Allah blesses you and this is why Allah
subhanho wa Taala sent you the month of Ramadan. This is why the month of Ramadan is here for you to do that act of come back to Allah Subhana Allah, the month of Ramadan, brothers and sisters in Islam is the month when you change when you can make a change in your relationship with Allah subhana wa darland imagine this. Allah subhanho wa Taala helps you he helps you he changes the circumstances around you the environment around you. The Shire thing, the devils are changed.
because of the hunger and the thirst. Fasting normally with that is why rasulillah salam advised the youth who have that sexual drive fast, fast, cold showers doesn't help fast that's the Islamic way fast. It will help you control that sexual drive until you get married. For like what why? Because when you you're hungry when you're thirsty because shaitan activates that shape and runs in the veins in the shape and add in the Adam can activate them if and when you're hungry that blood normally is the current is not as fast as usual. As it would be while you are eating and drinking and so forth. Have they even a whole lot of into a lie I was flying last night to hear so Pamela I
saw that and Muslims for the first time looking everybody's walk down I don't know if they were tired but I saw them in Denver I saw them in New Jersey and I saw them and gets everybody's imagine the whole month is like and this is add to this man sama Ravana man and rock this urban warfare Allah humatrope at the moment if you just fast with those two restrictions imagine believing that this is a comment from a lot and I'm saying
and you want the rewards from Allah will forgive you since mum karma Ramadan a man and wife deserve and warfare Allah who might be whoever observes the Korean in Ramadan. Allah will forgive is one night hidden in the last 10 nights of the month. One night, man calm Allah Isla De Luca de man and YT Saba
Allah will forgive all your sins. For if you do not come back to Allah in the Rama
in spite of all of this, and in spite of then you're like I've learned to die. You lack the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala died right here. That's why we understand the Hadith mean, mean, mean three times. I'm sure you heard it from multiple speakers before me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his way up to deliver a sermon. He said mean three times. Then he looked at his companions explaining why did he say I mean he said Geoffrey, the magic jabril the best of the angels. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of the messengers.
Both are making dua again his three individuals
may become a loser jabril is saying that and also Sam is saying what I mean
when I have pollun Elmo amino they're
the one who says a mean as if he made the dog when mmm say makes the solids and liquids. And you see I mean as if you made that
based on what did they say this? Look at this verse, or color moves and Sora tools moves asset, what color moves? Moosa is the one who said or a burner in next time. Noah mela, who's in Ottawa, more and Phil hayati, Jr, a banner ad. Here is the DA DA DA DA DA DA boo boo boo.
have their own idea that moves me against the Pharaoh and his helpers. Oh Allah make the moves that will
make their hearts hard that they do not believe until they die
until they Brown.
Look at the next verse, Allah Allah says, God, oh gee that, that word to
both of you is accepted. But meanwhile we know Moses said Moosa is the one who made the scholar they say, how was sitting the brother who's with Moosa and saying me Ghana, you me know Allah, the emerging GPL is making the draft and the Prophet is making that again is to look at this whole power question who men adore aka Rama Ivana wanna move for Allah.
Someone Allah prolongs his life, until he lives until the Rama born and he goes through Rama
and he comes out of the monk without forgiveness from the wrong with this guy, something wrong with him.
Something wrong with him. And the reason he Requa is the lack of knowledge of our last panel, that sometimes you you think that Allah Subhana Allah is not going to accept you. The second reason quickly, the lack of the knowledge regarding the sin itself.
Especially at work, brothers and sisters who come to America, we end up doing interesting things, and we think it's okay.
And you know, when you ask the brother or the Sister, why are you doing this?
But one of the first reasons that springs out of their mind is Oh, I'm in America. I live in America.
What do you mean you live in America? Yeah, you can be a Muslim in America and
what is it?
me daddy Mr. layup, lovin
Allah, Allah, Allah, this religion will reach as far as the day lie and the darkness of the nightly reaches Allah yet hulan Kula, the hygiene washer Jerry, mother, this Dean will enter every single home in the face of this earth.
So you want to tell me that because you came to America, Allah did not know
that the religion is not what the law law and this is one of the ways actually we justify the sin. Yeah. Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he spoke about the act of repentance, like he said, about height, you know, Hajj has many pillars, there is the standing and arafa there is often a father salary and there are pillars. But when he spoke about what did he say? And how do arafa
hydrographer he identified the whole act of heart with the most important pillar, which is what standing in the heart of like Raka Dhaka the unit that we pray, there is Roku or the institute there is still our there is that we are there is jelsa, but we call it Raka. And sometimes we'll call it such the why, because
the most important component of the Act, likewise is the profit and loss
and Nether who, who What do
you regret? What you have done? is the essence of the
now I'm going to ask you a question and let's be logical here. How in the world you're gonna regret something that you've done that you see it's okay to do it.
you will never regret you will will show up no matter how he drone a picture. Imagine.
A believer looks at his sin like a mountain
about to crumble on him.
But the hypocrite
he sees a symbol of fly that flies over his nose and he goes like this. It says nothing.
And go back to the first story that we know about us.
Adam is us. Satan is the evil force.
By the way, both of them disobey the law. Both of them committed a sin.
Adam, do not eat from the tree actually Do not come near the tree. He ate from it. He committed a sin
Satan bow down.
Why would we give in you and me? Would we give him a second chance?
Why? And Satan not
because of this very act of return of forgetfulness in Adam.
Adam, what did you eat from the tree?
exhibit I'm sorry out of stock for a while. I made a mistake.
color or a banner column
Talk fill in our handle an akuna nominal class
will be amongst the losers.
the whole act of repentance right here that you see the sin a sin and that invites you to walk to regret look at satan satan. How can you then bow down?
Oh, I'm better. You created this guy from clay and muck from fire.
Where is the repentance? Where is the nether? madman. Why? Because He justified he found an excuse where they care what? I advise all the brothers and sisters living in America. I understand it can ask the brothers to move forward a little bit please, please come closer to one another. So accommodate these brothers standing inshallah, we're going to be done here. So just just come close inshallah. I just hate to see brothers standing in Nevada. In the act, they act equal of repentance requires you to regret what you're doing. Or is there a lot of the brothers and I'm sorry, I'm gonna be a little bit straightforward here. Like ideally the subject of mortgage. I know it's a very
technical tactical subject you know that? You know? Listen, if you fall into this trap, still see the sin? It's a sin line a law who Lieber a law curses usury whatever killer that one who devours the bank wamu keila and the one who feeds it the one who pays
What about the one who makes the contract? Breathe is the contract washer he then he and those who witnessed this look at this look at it because some of you say * I don't take rip I just give to this guy. know whom so
they are all alike in this in. They are all involved in this. But don't justify don't say Oh, it's America. We could do that. It's American. America been a hobby.
If you cannot establish your religion, you go somewhere else.
In the Latina woman Malaika to Halimi, unforeseen kalu FEMA come to the angels will come and seize the souls of certain people who are in a state of sin. Why in the world did you die like this? Why? Why did you do couldn't mustafina filler? We couldn't establish the religion. We couldn't practice our the more we're weak. We're
sure well that excuse me accepted? No, Alan Taku are the law
Why did you go somewhere? I'm not asking you to go back to Pakistan or India or Egypt or whatever, you know, go go somewhere else. Another state where you can establish your deen What the Why Why? Why would you take a shower the holistic aims of the religion of Islam the less than like this have good the first
protection of your religion. Why? Why? Because this is the purpose behind your creation. Wonderful up to gin our insanely Abu I created you to worship me now to
preserve and protect the deen then there is no other reason for you to be here for you to share a walk. Another obstacle in the way of coming back to Allah subhana wa tada is the lack of knowledge regarding the sin, which may invite you actually to justify the sin, belittle the sin and so forth. inshallah, this is going to be my subject tonight, before we begin our fundraising in sha Allah, and we invite all of you to come and help the machine machine to maintain its budget in sha Allah for the next year we relied on the scholars
categorized because when they looked at this Hadith, that if you live until the Ramadan if you fast from avant, if you pray pm Allah will forgive your sins. They always said this does not apply to major sins. There is a debate
Amongst the scholars whether sins can be broken into minor and major, the majority of the scholars they said yes, because there is evidence in the Quran Surah Nisa, in any bukoba Ramadan how nanhu if you avoid the major things that were banning you from doing prohibiting you from doing so Latino and Latina, Gianni buena Kava, alpha insha Allah lemon, those who avoid the major sins, there is text. Other few scholars said no sin is a sin. Now, what makes a sin major and what makes a sin minor? There is a lot of details that tonight inshallah I will share with you. But for the sake of time, so you can go back to your world.
Diplodocus made a profound statement out of this world. What did he say? He said, Love soggy.
Love zawiera ma
Wanaka de la masterfile.
There is no such a sin that can be little sin, small sin, minor sin if you insist on it.
So if you insist on committing one sin all the time that turns it from a minor even though it's a minor, it's a small sin, it's nothing. It's a minor intermediate. Why? Because we go back to that subject again because you don't see the sin. You remember the fly? That's you don't see the act of free gratefulness is not the anatomy is not the it never will never occur in the heart will never occur in the heart.
Look at the other individual. And there is no such a thing called major sin if you repent from it. While kaviraj masterful if you commit a sin and you conduct

as well as the Manhattan movement in
the US and in Isla with the brothers and sisters in Islam, Ramadan is among that
takes care of sins, one of the actually linguistic definition of a Rama but I thought to be here to know all the sins are destroyed because of it. Is your chance to change is your chance to make better relationship with Allah. So at least Allah can bless you show you mercy. Oh, sometimes
we end up with that attitude of no I can change No, I don't think I'm too much I can change and I'm not ready. Lima Mohammed Abdullah Hill Maddy, according to Alison novel Gemma, not according to the sci fi in an eternal elope Elena, we read the Hadith. You slip Whoo hoo Allahu Fie. Laila,
Allah subhanaw taala would reform him will make him a better Muslim in one night. One night, he Laila. One night. Imagine you have 29 nights. You have a whole month,
a whole month that you can fix yourselves, I can fix myself, I can get better. I can become better.
In closing, la abule Josie la casa de la casa he mentioned that story is one of the stories because of
that this man
committed a sin one of the criticisms and he's really young he started rebuking himself and feeling bad about doing it. Why did they do this and, and somehow he ended up developing that feeling that Allah will not forgive him. And he you know, sometimes a fan comes to us from this way that no way Allah is gonna forgive me what I've done here. So he walked out and he sat on the top of a rock and he saw that scene and
unfolding right before his eyes a little boy upset his mother made his mother angry at him
his mother became so upset
she gave him an American spanking American spank he mindful here child service would come after us miracle
Get out of my house
she can come out
don't come back here again.
So the boy went out little boy you know wandering around thinking that he can do it without the mom without the house. So building some castles doing some stuff here and there. Then it started getting hungry and you know started feeling loneliness out the
hollow I'm not happy here. My happiness is inside.
So should he went back and not not not? Mom should know.
not coming back. Yeah.
You know what, she doesn't want me so I'll go again.

hold the door. Mom, please. Forgive me, mom.
I'll never do this again. And he started crying.
Please, mom, please, I will not do this again.
Please forgive me. And he started crying and weeping.
the mercy of the mother right away. She opened the door. She grabbed him. And she given him a hug. And she said come back.
That's what we need to do in Ramadan. For the last panel that one of these nights,
one of these nights But see, that's the beauty of Islam. You don't have to do it in front of a breeze sitting in a hole. You don't have to tell it to shave legs you want to log
in us to do in your Roku or in your haleiwa wherever you are. Talk to Allah about what's going on with your lives and come back to Allah
