Do you know what is more harm than the sin we commit at times? Yes. Do you know what is more harm than the harm that we do at times is to lose hope in Allah and believe that he will not forgive us. That is a grave major send me Allah protect you and I from Allah subhana wa T of the 10 groups from the whole Quran that he says he loves them is a group known as a well being those who repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala those who return to Allah subhana wa Tada. Do you know that only one time Allah said that he loves him in the Koran. And do you know What's the idea? Before we jump to that idea that talks about our well being and how Allah loves them? Let's really briefly understand What

00:00:50--> 00:01:39

does tobuy mean? Toba? What does that mean? Toba means our roju which is to return you making a U turn. So if I tell you make do tell back, it's like I'm telling you make a U turn. Technically speaking when we say to boo return, it means return from from where from the things that Allah hates, return from the things that Allah hates, to the things that Allah loves. or reduce malaria, Ebola, Ebola man you Hippo Allah. So you let go of that haram thing that you're doing that action, move away from it return and go to the thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves May Allah make you and I have been I mean a Bellini. Now let's go ahead and shout out luck. And before we talk about

00:01:39--> 00:02:24

the idea, let's say why was it revealed? An ns radi Allahu anhu an authentic narration and Alia hood can be either harder to model or to feed him lamb you akeelah wollam Eugenia Oh wonderful boite and it's not the Allahu anhu says that they are hood when their spouses the wife used to go through that menstruation that cycle. They used to actually not eat with her in the same place. Same room they actually used to distance themselves completely from them. A lamb you Holly to her well Musa qinhuai bacon what they would avoid at all costs even different home if possible. For sellers have Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the companions they asked the prophet SAW said about the situation. here

00:02:25--> 00:03:12

Allah revealed an iron. Allah is a panel that says in the Quran, this is from Surah Al Baqarah. I read in sha Allah, Allah says in the Quran, why is Luna and in the hand on Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they ask you about demonstration that cycle and based on the reason of the revelation, the question is what we asked you about being intimate with the spouse during that time. Allah says cool, whoever say it is a harm. This cycle is a test of hardship on the on the woman and of course the man but definitely on the woman that tecido nissa f in my head. So Allah says in the Quran, you should be away from approaching the wife on the spouse for intimate relationship. Rasool

00:03:12--> 00:03:55

Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after this area was revealed, what did he say? is not a collection in inland nica. He's telling the brothers and the sisters in the home of Mohammed Salah that when the woman is going through that cycle, behave normally towards that individual may be completely fine towards that wife towards that sister. And the only thing you are away from your wife is from the intimacy part but everything else is fine. You eat together and the same table stay in the same room. Everything is completely fine, not how they yahood we're very extreme about it. I rajala her and her What does she say? And maybe your Salalah alayhi wasallam Can you take it over your head

00:03:55--> 00:04:46

God? We're gonna have some Maya cloud Quran Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Don't forget sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He used to put his head on the lap of his wife in Asia and read Quran while she was going through her menstruation through that cycle. Allah says well, Crapo, Natalia Thorne did not come into that intimate relationship until they are purified. And that cycle ends for either Tata horna. And once the cycle ends and they are purified, and to add to that they take a shower and so on, to mean hate to America Mullah. Then once they're done, they're all good, the purified then you may approach your spouse, the way Allah allowed you to approach your spouse

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In authentic narration men at ha Illa whoever approaches their spouse while they are in that cycle and demonstration, what it also lays Allah Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

While he was Adam says, care for Bhima en de la Allah, Mohammed, then they have disbelieved and what Allah has revealed unto Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's a major, major sin for the husband to approach the spouse during that time during that cycle. But what did Allah say after that? It's a major sin. But after that Allah says, and the only time in the Quran in the law how you hit Buta wellbeing, when you hit bull Matata hearing, Allah loves who turned those who turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala, especially if that sin was committed, may Allah protect us all and forgive us immunoblotting for all our sins. So Allah says, I will forgive you, I will love you if you ask

00:05:41--> 00:06:25

for my forgiveness, and you change your ways and you return from the thing that Allah hates to doing the thing that Allah loves. So this was the context of the area where Allah says that he loves those who repent. But let's go deeper into the meaning of tober and utter webbing. Allah subhanho wa Taala some people they may fall into this trap shaytans whispers or the evil from within themselves or ignorance. They think Allah subhanho wa Taala is all about punishment. Yes, we have to make a very clear Allah severely punishes those who deserve it. but on the same token, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most merciful and one of his name's Allah. His name's ismat. Illa. Is what a web that's

00:06:25--> 00:07:06

Allah's Name is that he acts he's the one who accepts your return. He's the one who accept your apology. Dino To what extent Allah Allah, Allah, and Allah forgiveness is to us. This is one of the most beautiful Hadith to display a lost love and mercy towards those who have committed sins and they are repenting to Allah. Are you ready in sha Allah, Allah Bismillah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says lulla who I said due for a hand veto but he Abdi Allah subhanaw taala is joy and happiness. When you repent to Allah when I go back to Allah and ask for his forgiveness, to what extent Allah is happy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives you this demonstration?

00:07:06--> 00:07:54

Are you ready in sha Allah? Allah smilla he says the example of the one we just change the slide. The example of the one who is sitting and traveling with his camel and the camel is packed with all his luggage, okay, his clothing, his food and everything. And all of a sudden, what happens brothers and sisters, that camel that the brother was sitting on and so on, after he takes arrest, that camel goes away. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam remember salallahu alayhi wasallam? What does he say? That individual who lost the camel feels that it's only a matter of time until he dies because he is in the middle of nowhere. The food The drink is gone. It was on the camel, and that man rests on a

00:07:54--> 00:08:42

tree and is waiting for death to come. That's it. There's no way Allah has no hope, Matthew mn and all of a sudden, as he takes a quick nap when he dozes off. Then he opens his eyes, lo and behold, guess who came back to him? The camel, the camel came right back to that person who was leaning on the tree, then out of joy. Can you imagine how happy he is? Can you imagine how excited like you're you that set you like burying your own grave that you have no hope and now all the hope in the world came. So this man says to Allah, and I'm not going to make a mistake in sha Allah. This man says to Allah, Oh Allah, you are my slave. And I am your God.

00:08:44--> 00:09:08

That's why he said, Allah you are my slave. And I am your God Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says us but I mean she did before. He made the mistake for how happy he was. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he explained how happy that man was. And you can clearly see how happy he was right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says that Allah is happier

00:09:09--> 00:09:52

than this man. Because he that man repented back to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah loves it when you come back to him. People may get annoyed when you keep saying sorry, sorry, I apologize. Right. And it's and they have all the right to get annoyed. You know, we're human beings. It's very understandable. Some teachers they get irritated. The student keeps saying I'm so sorry. Enough, do your homework do this and that with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah He loves sincere apology are also allies of Allah alayhi wa sallam says, No one loves her although apology more than Allah subhanho wa Taala should this not motivate you and I that's why we should never ever lose hope in Allah because

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

this is what shaped on one's brothers and sisters pay close attention to this shape and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about

00:10:00--> 00:10:54

Tim, that shaytan says Where is zedekiah? Rob? I swear to you, Allah that shaitan making an oath What is he want? lebra how are we bad? Mad dammit Ottawa home fee at sadeem I will continue to try to ruin the lives of your slaves, our ruin every man and every woman, young and old. I just destroyed them all. As long as there is a soul in their body until their last breath, I will try to destroy them. I actually done you know what Allah said? Where is that you were Jalali and I swear by my mighty and honor law as a funeral home Mr. faraone and I swear that I will continue to forgive them as long as they continue to seek my forgiveness. See Allah subhanho wa Taala and as on ask you

00:10:54--> 00:11:41

Yeah, feel free to comment. Discuss with your family who is the Most Merciful of individuals on earth? What do you think it is? Who do we have here? Mohammed Salim definitely Hamas Allah, Allah, but now that he passed away at least have set up who around He is the Most Merciful person towards you? Yeah. lebensmittel who would it be? Hmm. who would it be? Masha? Allah Baraka, I think one of us got it. It is our mother's sister, Fadi, me Allah grant you Jenna. Our mother's brothers and sisters.

00:11:42--> 00:12:26

Now. That was a relationship. Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is about to give you the greatest example manifestation of Allah on earth, which is the mom. Okay, as a father, I won't be offended for that. Mom's Rama is just on a whole other level. All right, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, After Let me explain the story for you. There was a group of people, okay, in the desert under the heat of the sun. And there was a little bit of kind of chaos towards one lady. She was going from one tent to the other tent from 110 to the other 10 from one group to the other group under the heat of the sun. And people are resting and so but she's like in a panic mode

00:12:26--> 00:13:09

from one place to the other one place and other what's going on. She's looking for her baby. She lost her baby. And she's not resting, though it was a moment of exhaustion and the people were taking the rest and so on drinking water. She's not looking for water. She's not looking for food. All of her concern is where is my baby. And then she was looking and looking until she finally found her baby. And right when she got the baby fell soccer to be about anyhow. But right away, she grabbed the baby, and she started to breastfeed the baby. And when she breastfeeds, the baby that makes her even lose more energy, more nutrients or panela makes her weaker and weaker. But that's

00:13:09--> 00:13:24

not the hammer of the mother. No one knows its true value and limit except Allah subhanho wa Taala so in this amazing merciful moment of a mother towards her child, also a lice Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he asks the Sahaba around him.

00:13:25--> 00:14:14

Do you guys ever imagined does it ever cross your mind that this mother would ever try to ruin her baby would ever just get her babies thrown into a place a fire and destroy that baby and ruin his life? So they said no way, you're also impossible unless maybe there's a gun on her head or something, but no way. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says therefore lulla who are hammarby A baddie mean had the heebie well at a loss mercy to you and I towards his slaves is even greater and much more than the mercy of that mother towards her baby towards this child. Allahu Akbar. When you get to have a God that you worship like that it gives you so much hope, but not

00:14:14--> 00:14:57

false hope. Lyla, Mila, Mila Mila protectors? May Allah forgive us from having that false hope? What's that false hope? Someone that does the mistake and is doing it and even plans it then the people says you lie This is wrong. He says, Allah for Rahim know Allah Subhana what Allah does not like this whatsoever Allah hates it. Those who plan their oppression, those who are planned their disrespect and then mockingly say Allah for Rahim Allah, Allah Allah protects And forgive us. I mean your bill alanine, brothers and sisters, especially now with Ramadan. I want to share with you this heavy one lot. One last one. There's a lot to talk about. But one last one to demonstrate Allah that

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

I love to all of us

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

la sala Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, yen zerah buena taba Rocca wa Taala called La Latin in a center at dunya. Allah subhanho wa Taala descends every single night to the first seminar, the center of dunya. He called through to Lady until the last third of the night. So when the last third of the night starts, that's when Allah descends. How do we calculate the night? You go from Asia, you go to Niger, and you divide that by three from Asia to Niger, you divide that by three, the last third is when Allah subhanho wa Taala descends. Allah says three things. Many are the only first ajibola Who here has any request any demand that they want, so I can fulfill that for them. Many as

00:15:49--> 00:16:28

a loony for Atiyah, Who here wants for example, something that of necessity that they can ask for the first one was do I allow respond to the other one is a need that you need to that you want and allow provided for you? Then the third one many astell ferroni for Alfie Rola who wants my forgiveness, who has who needs my remark Veera to forgive them and not punishment, punish them for the mistake that they've done for Alfie Rolla and I promise I will forgive. Allah says that every single night in the last third of the night. So if we were awake at that time, please be sure that that moment is a moment of respect to Allah, especially if we are able to plan that moment of the

00:16:28--> 00:17:05

night to be able to seek Allah's forgiveness May Allah forgive us all immutable, Allah mean, but now the question comes just looking at brother, we appreciate it. But how do we go to Allah and make proper Toba and this is very, very important brothers and sisters. May Allah make us all of those who make appropriate celibacy. I mean, me, okay, I changed the image for you. You might be like, okay, what's the point of this broken glass? You know what we have this broken glass we made this sin we made this mistake. And we want a loss of panel with the Allah to forgive us. How shall we do it? I want your undivided attention. May Allah bless you and protect you. I'm gonna actually even

00:17:05--> 00:17:52

use my board and shall okay Niala Bismillah. So when it comes to Toba appropriate repentance, there's three things, one to do with what the past allow the one to do with the present and how the other one to do with the future and mostakbal you have to do this, this and this for Allah subhanaw taala to accept your repentance. Let's do the past. First, when it comes to the past. You have to regret you have to what what's the word all of us? We have to know this. When it comes to the past you have to regret Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a nadamoo Toba, the main pillar of Allah accepting your apology for Allah to accept your seeking of his forgiveness for Allah to accept

00:17:52--> 00:18:27

your return. Now he said Toby is the return. You want Allah to accept your return and have the doors open for you. You have to regret what you've done. If you come in, like you know what, I have no regrets. We keep learning from No, no, no, don't mix things please. Yes, we will learn from our mistakes, but I feel bad for doing it. You don't come all arrogant, like you know what, I think we all do mistakes like you. You're you're broken, you should be broken and you like, you know, I seek Allah's forgiveness or be fairly not only if you're boasting out, I'm a human being we all do mistakes. That's now your approach that doesn't look like you are regretful at all. May Allah

00:18:27--> 00:19:13

protect us And forgive us and make us sincere and miserable and so when it comes to the past, we have to regret Okay, that's great type What about the present? When it comes to the present brothers and sisters, you have to stop the sin immediately. You cannot be like you know what inshallah in two months and you know, I'm doing this haram thing right now and in sha Allah as I get older, I become shadow 2574 when I retire when I go to hide, no, no, no, no, no. Right now and and right now in the present are also Lysa mama who is me teachers that an Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly says in the Quran, what when Medina is alpha alpha heisha 10 o Vala mu and for some Allah vacarro Allah, them

00:19:13--> 00:19:42

moment these people they commit a sin, they are wrong themselves. They remember Allah subhanho wa Taala first thoroughly didn't obey Him and they seek Allah's forgiveness women young Pharaoh unova illa Allah Who forgives other than Allah subhanho wa Taala so you have to stop immediately. I want to give you the example of the coffee that you see that is broken or that juice if let's say pretend this is a bottle of water. Let's just pretend this is a bottle of water. Okay. And then the bottle is open.

00:19:43--> 00:19:53

And then someone by accident he pours water on me. Hello as the water is being poured on me. I have a question for you brothers and sisters. How does that person fix this mistake?

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

The first thing he needs to do is he needs to stop you know, spilling the water on me

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

So he needs to tilt to the bottle and let the water settle or the coffee or so. So the spilling needs to stop if he does this and it keeps spelling and spelling and spelling on me and ruining my clothes. And he's like, brother, I'm so sorry. He said that what can I talk about? Is this you know, I just give me like two more hours. Yeah, he stopped right now. I don't accept your apology if you're gonna keep doing this, if the coffee is all over the place, so you need to stop right now. With that regret. And is that enough? Is that enough? I'm sorry. Sincerely. Okay, good. Good job. I regret what I did. Great job. I stopped good. So you're done with the past. You're done with the

00:20:40--> 00:21:26

present, but what about the future? You got to buy me a new shirt. You got to buy me a new t shirt brothers and sisters, or give me something to clean my shirt with or I can pass it down to you wash it up, but you have to make up for it. Other new stuff but you gotta make up for it. Also lights Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He also teaches that What does Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran? He says in the Quran, in lemon taba? Where am I now? Why Mila and unsightly, ha. Allah, accept your repentance and you try to make up for the sin that you've committed. So you do a good deed. I'll give an example someone did the Haram while they were alone in their bedroom. For

00:21:26--> 00:22:13

example, we learned from our machete that one of the best ways to make up for that 15 minutes that you're on that app and you watch this and you listen to that is to be able to make in that spot something that is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. So you ask Allah forgiveness, you pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala for that sin in private due October for example, in private Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says in a beautiful Hadith ready for this, he says, Who ever make sure to like a proper proper will do and then praise to rock out to Allah subhanho wa Taala what happens brothers and sisters, Allah will forgive you for that sin that you've committed.

00:22:13--> 00:22:49

He has made a sin. You feel very bad. You make although Allahu Akbar Torah God, Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you for that which you have done, and you do your absolute best to make sure that you make up for it as much as you possibly can. What did Allah say? Well, actually Messiah latter thought of in Haiti was Amina Lail in Al Hassan it the good deeds. You the hypocrisy at the erase the bad deeds. May Allah Subhana Allah you and I to be able to remember this amenia Rabbil aalameen Bye bye, brother. Shall we move forward law? No, no, no, no. There's one more thing. What is it?

00:22:51--> 00:23:37

If the thing that you and I have done of haram involves other people, you've got to fix it. If you stole from someone some money, some jewelry. You gotta bring it back. Oh, I'm so sorry brother Zack Allah here. I promise I'll not do it again. JazakAllah here. Bye. Where's the jewelry? I sold it and then I now have this car here. Go sell your car. Give me the money that you stole from me. That's the appropriate Toba. You took someone's rights you return back the rights were law you go to Hajj a million times a million times you go to Hajj. I'll be like a newborn baby ain't no No, no newborn baby. Okay, no, it's not until you give the hop back to the people. If they're Mujahid Ushahidi.

00:23:37--> 00:24:20

Shaheed he gave up his life he said be the law will not go to Agenda when you owe someone what money for a Dane. May Allah protect us brothers and sisters, but we need to do whatever is necessary to be able to pay back and give back the rights. And if we were sincere, Allah will take care of us in sha Allah. Is that clear in sha Allah? Now? Now, the question I want to move forward to sha Allah. Before I conclude before the conclusion, there's very important part. What is it? Brother? Give us some advice, advice for Bismillah advice on how to be able not to fall into sin. How are we able to do the sale and we're not going to say okay, it's like for example, what happens sometimes you want

00:24:20--> 00:24:59

to donate money to someone, someone is in need. Okay, brother help me I need some money tied hard. This is $100 Here we go. I don't want to do I don't want I don't want this session to be like that only. I want to give you the $100 and I want to help you put your resume together to get a job. Okay, so we shared with you, Allah great, how to make Toba fantastic down also share with you and remind myself, how do I not keep falling into sin? A very oh we read insha Allah, Allah Bismillah. Now there's loads of things that we can talk about, but also with each other a few steps. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim number one

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

avoid putting yourself in position to sin.

00:25:04--> 00:25:46

And into you know, that every time at this time when you're around these guys, you talk things that are backbiting and gossip and it's hot on and every time you try to work things out, it doesn't work out. Yeah, you need to avoid being in such places. Allah says in the Quran while the carabas Xena don't even approach Xena that major sin don't even come close to it Allah did not say in this I don't do it no don't even come near it it's upon if you come near Allah the chances of you sinning are very slim now, any moment you're about to fall. So number one is trying to avoid putting yourself in places and situations where you will be disrespecting Allah subhanho wa Taala number

00:25:46--> 00:26:37

two, number two is very dear to me very important very very motivational the other ready for number two, you have to believe that what Allah made haram for you is something you can stay away from that one more time. You have to believe what Allah made haram for you is something that you have enough strength in you to be away from because Allah says law you can leave for long enough son in law WUSA Allah will not give you something assign you something you cannot withstand. So now next time you see that sin that you continue doing these phone calls sometimes people do to the wrong people who are not supposed to be doing relationships that are Haram, consuming food and drink their

00:26:37--> 00:27:24

inappropriate like Bro, I can't imagine my life without this action that is haram. No, you need to start imagining because you are capable of it. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says for either hate to come and Shay and fetch 10 Ebo the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, If I tell you do not do something, stay away from that thing, then make sure you stay away from it. The Prophet did not say Do your best. No, stay away, stop it just quit it quit. It's done. It's over. But when the Prophet continued the Hadith, you know what he says? Well, either more to come before the embrun tominaga started, but when I tell you to do something now it's an obligation. wajib not

00:27:24--> 00:28:05

allowed to be away from now it's right you got to do it. Then do your best. have coached her shoe and Salah. Focus on Salah as much as you can do your best. Alright, be sincere, do your best. All right, do proper hygiene proper this and that. Do your best. But when it comes to the haraam, he didn't say Do your best. He said quit. It's over done. Don't talk holla do whatever is necessary to make sure you quit. You get counseling advice. No See, you gotta believe in here and in here. I can quit this haram palas Allah is telling you through our through our lace of Allah, Allah, Allah is telling you in the Quran, that you can live for long enough that Llosa, Allah Subhana Allah will not

00:28:05--> 00:28:44

assign you something that you cannot bear and withstand. I hope that point is very clear in sha Allah, may Allah make it easy for all of you. May Allah grant you and I that strong mentality towards cinda I can quit it I can be away from it. I mean Robben Island in lastly of the steps that perhaps we can protect ourselves from falling into is what you sow finally he Salam did now the Sinhala asthma Shabaab what the sin the masa is fast approaching we okay made a major major major okay What should we do now? You also find a salon went through this Allah says no called unguided to let you who are fee Beatty her and nothing was

00:28:45--> 00:29:31

called a title there was a lady she locked the doors prepared herself for use have to commit a massive sin okay clear. Now what did you suffer he said I'm doing he did three things he's a pure genius. Ali salami Allah allow us to remember these three ready? You have to remember inshallah, number one he says my either Allah I seek a loss protection I seek refuge in Allah. So number one, you feel there's a massiah you're about to scrolling online shot if someone passes by you feel like you're cornered. The I'm about to fall into this haram number one who Billa Halas number one is what will be law number two in our bsns Why use of he remembered the blessings he had? So let's assume

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

the sin is the eye and involving the eye involves the eye something haram on the screen. So number one, I owe the biller number two use of SM remembered the blessing the near ama so in our situation, the example is the eyes. How can I use the eyes which I have? How to use it in a way that is disrespectful to Allah. Allah gave me my site to look at that which is haram but this is not appropriate. This is my Thank you back to Allah

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

To see things that he told me not to see. So panela it's like a father gives his son a new car. Then he gets this car and he speeds and he never answers his dad and mom when they call him and he's always with his friends. If I gave you the car, she can treat me like this. I gave you the money so you can do this to me. This isn't that very rude and disrespectful. Allah is the best of examples. When he said that in the Quran, Yusuf alayhi salam, he feels in peace in this house. He was in the well, he was about to die. Now that I have a place now that I am secured. This is how I will thank Allah back. No way. That's number two. So number one, or the law. Number two, think of the blessing

00:30:42--> 00:31:30

Allah gave you which you're about to use against Allah, because we never commit a Haram. We never do something wrong unless we had to use a blessing Allah gave us one more time one more time. We never do something that is wrong and Haram, except that we had to use a blessing Allah gave us so he remembered the blessing. Number three in the hula usually avoid the moon use the valleys and realize the oppressors are never successful. So he remembered the punishment. If I watch this, if I click that, a loss of handled I may ruin my site, Allah subhanho wa Taala may ruin my email above that. If I do this thing, I may be disgraced in jahannam I might be embarrassed in front of the billions of

00:31:30--> 00:32:09

people in Yokoyama, I might get caught by mom and dad for example. So all you think of the consequences. So number two, oh, Isabella, number a number one always be law number two, think of the blessings. Number three, think of the punishment if you end up continuing or falling into that sin. May Allah protect us amenable alameen May Allah protect us Yara Allah Janina and fit and Mr. Bahari now, Mr. Burton, may Allah protect you and I from all fitness, the ones that are clear, and the ones that are hidden mineral galantamine, brothers and sisters, thank you for your time. I want to conclude with very important points. Okay. Very important points. You know how to hunt a wolf in

00:32:09--> 00:33:01

a tundra Bismillah R Rahman R, what kind of conclusion is this all? Do you know how to hunt for a wolf in the tundra? Like, I don't know. There is a motivational speaker that gave this example. He says, you go get a double blade, double edge or bladed knife. Okay. Then you find some blood of a seal or an animal that died in that tundra. You dip that knife that double edge knife into that blood until it becomes frozen around it and it becomes a popsicle. But of course, a popsicle that is blood. And it is not a wooden stick but a double edged knife, and you place it into that snow. Then the wolf when the wolf smells blood, it gets so excited. And the wolf approaches that blood and

00:33:01--> 00:33:37

starts licking and licking that blood. And when it licks the blood, the worm from the breath of the wolf and the body of the wolf, melt that blood. And the more the blood melts, the closer that tongue of the wolf is to the actual knife. So the wolf licks and licks and licks until all the blood that was frozen is gone. And then the wolf makes a Last Lick. And he cuts his tongue. Because the double edged knife, when he cuts his tongue, what do you think happens?

00:33:38--> 00:34:27

The wolf gets more excited, because now there's fresh, warm blood. And he continues to lick and lick until he dies out of how much he bled for its blood. Like what in the world is this example. The wolf brothers and sisters focused so much on the pleasure that he ignored the pain and the destruction of the action that it was doing. It was two, three minutes. But the expense of that was a complete misery that caused the death of that wolf. Many of us May Allah forgive us and protect us or some people that we may know. They're into, for example, drugs into haram habits in the way they're dealing with others, cheating, lying betraying, they're so focused on the pleasure that they

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

forgot of the consequences and the destruction of what they're doing. So be aware of that. Don't be like that, wolf. And if I were to end my conclusion with one thing, it will be the following will be a very famous story by wanting to never forget this one. This will be Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about a man who killed the 99 people. I know it I know many of you know what I pay close attention, please, with the context that we're talking about. That man killed 99 people you know how miserable is that? That's pretty bad. That's pretty bad. But

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

This man eventually after 99 people of killing them, he felt bad. And then he went to someone who appears to know about the dean, okay? He's I but he just elite worshiper but not a scholar, not an island. She went to him. He said, Listen, I killed 99 people is in disaster. It killed 99 people. He asked him, Do you think I have room for Allah to forgive me? Do you think I have room for Allah to accept my return my Toba. So this man said he killed 99 people? Of course not. Whether you're a loser, 99 people. So this man

00:35:39--> 00:36:27

who killed nine people. He said, If that's the case, come here. And he killed the guy. So now it's 100. But he still had that ounce of feeling bad in him. Then he went to aim to a scholar Nam on him who understands the dean, a doctor in the dean. So he went to him. And he said, shear island? I killed 100 people. Is there any room for me to be forgiven? Is there any room for a law to accept my return? And before I tell you the response, because 2021 I guess I don't know. I should give quick disclaimer here is that don't be too busy. With How would it be fair if Allah forgave that guy who killed 100 people, while he oppressed them, Allah will take care of the 100 people in the way that

00:36:27--> 00:37:05

Allah sees best. Don't worry about Allah subhanaw taala and how he handles things. He knows what he's doing. He is Hakeem the all wise alleles that are knowledgeable, back to the Hadith. So this man who killed 100 people, he asked the Adam the scholar, I killed 100 people, is there any room for me to be forgiven? Don't have a chance. So the item says, of course, you have a chance and Who in the world can put a barrier between you and Allah has mercy, a barrier between you and returning back to Allah? He says, yes, they have a chance. But there's something I gotta tell you, that the scholar out of everything in the world that he knows, he will tell them one thing to do one thing

00:37:05--> 00:37:46

only to change his life, the one who killed 100 people. So what about you? What about you and I write what about you and I? He said, You are surrounded by people who are corrupted, you have horrible friends. Your friends are messed up. Okay? So nasty Sue. So what do you suggest you need to let go of the atmosphere into leave need to leave the atmosphere keeps mixing you fall into sin. You're not praying on time. There's no that support system get you got to leave actually, they're encouraging you to disrespect Allah. So you got to leave and go to another group of people, another city, where there are people that worship Allah subhanho wa Taala are now saw the holy, righteous

00:37:46--> 00:38:31

people. That's what you gotta do. That's the only thing he told him. That's the only thing he told him. But what about like a couple of pamphlets, books? How to pray. That's good. That's good. But darlin, he knows if he does this move. If this man is surrounded by righteous people, he will get the whole package, the whole everything he needs to know Charla, this man appears to be sincere. After killing 100 people, he takes the advice to heart, he packs his stuff. And now he's traveling from one location to the other location. Brothers and sisters, as he was traveling, what happens? He dies Subhan Allah, on the way from that place, to this place as he was traveling, he died. So then

00:38:31--> 00:39:11

for the first time that I'm aware of the both groups of angels come to the same soul, the angels of punishment, and the angels of mercy, they come to the same person. So they were arguing now the angels were arguing, now we will take a soul because he'd killed 100 people. So he needs to go to the right place for that, you know, like, you know, he needs to get punished. The angels of mercy. They were talking back, they said, No, he was going to repent, he's going to change his ways Shall we take his soul? You know, he was changing back and forth. Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a judge to determine which group of angels take the soul of that man. So that judge says we will measure the

00:39:11--> 00:39:59

distance from the city that he lived, to where he died. And from where he died, to the city that he's going to whatever he is closer to he will be taken by the appropriate group of angels agreed, agreed. And when they measured the distance, the man died closer to the city that he was going to closer to the city that has righteous people. And guess who took his soul, the angels of Rama? Can you imagine that? If the one who killed the 100 people had the chance you and I should never lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala you know what's very, very interesting. It's as if the thing that determined whether this man goes to hell or goes to heaven was

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

Who were his friends? Because he says he was closer to the righteous. He went with them. Had he been closer to the wicked and the losers, he would have went to wherever they would have went, May Allah forgive us, may Allah make you and I have been miserable alanine and just like how you and I and many people do not like when people call us only when they need something only when they are in trouble. You and I should not call God and reach out to him only when we are in trouble. Reach out to Allah, when things are going great when things are smooth. So Allah may help you when we are all in trouble. May Allah forgive us and make us have utter well being. I mean herbal alanine, which is

00:40:41--> 00:40:45
