Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala

00:00:07--> 00:00:20

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Steven Catherine cathedra from abajo McGovern sisters, we are on the subject of o'clock of the Yamato sola, sola, how much a

00:00:22--> 00:00:27

Illuminati of Warhammer sossalamander, that all of us are Amati Amati is of

00:00:29--> 00:00:47

how much we behave, why is it important to do that? How does it affect us positively in this life as well as the next and that is the beauty of our religion that it is value addition straightaway, that whatever we do is not restricted only to this life, but it gives us

00:00:49--> 00:00:53

rewards and dividends also in the life in the hereafter.

00:00:55--> 00:01:09

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live this life in a way which is pleasing to Him. And when we meet him, it will be a source of higher and Baraka for us inshallah, and has done a brother and sisters, I remind myself, I knew that

00:01:10--> 00:01:20

it is not how much we know, but how much we do, which makes a difference. And therefore, the focus always on action. We are on the, we're looking at the

00:01:23--> 00:01:34

clock of the Almighty Allah as Allah subhanaw taala described them and called us and it is in his great greatness and glory and majesty and his mercy.

00:01:35--> 00:01:41

He called these people the mathies of Rasulullah sallallahu. Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:42--> 00:01:54

loves and appreciates. Allah called them alive as a man he said they are my slaves. Now this is the beauty of the of the bat, and I call them my slaves.

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

And we were looking at their at their Asaf has this adverse effect.

00:02:02--> 00:02:07

And he looked at the issue of tawheed in some detail under the law.

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

Today, we look at another very important aspect and that is really quite literally the point of beginning.

00:02:22--> 00:02:27

The point of beginning of everything good which is to repent, to make Toba is the heart.

00:02:28--> 00:02:33

As they say every saint has a past and every scoundrel has a future.

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

So therefore, the wire so far is something that is

00:02:41--> 00:02:48

critical to success for everyone in every aspect of their lives, no matter who they are what they are.

00:02:50--> 00:03:04

I don't know if you can hear that hum in the background. That is the the engine of one of the boats which is here, it's a fishing boat. There are these people who are fishermen and they

00:03:05--> 00:03:23

basically fish for lobsters and also other fish on Long Island Sound. It's their boat and they're, I think starting the boat to go off for a day of fishing, the beautiful summer day and it's mostly cloudy which because the

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

sky is so good The atmosphere here is so clean that

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

when it gets Sunny,

00:03:33--> 00:03:38

in to sit in the sun is very difficult because the sun is extremely hot. And

00:03:39--> 00:03:43

you literally burn embark if it's cloudy, it's very, very nice.

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

And that's where I'm sitting here now. And last rather therefore told us about this and therefore he mentioned

00:03:53--> 00:04:06

Allah mentioned them as people who repent and do righteous deeds. So this thing of repentance of is the father of Toba is the father is to

00:04:07--> 00:04:39

apologize is the father is to be contrite is the fire is to decide to make a change in your life. And therefore change begins with being sorry for what you are doing. I mean, if I want to change then automatically it goes without saying but that's the foundation of the whole edifice of change. And that is that I am regretful about what I used to do I have regretful about what I was doing and regret for what what I used to do. And so there Therefore, I decided to change and I made this the plot, and

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

then I make Toba doba is to turn towards to turn towards so Toba tubo Illallah Hito watton, NASA Allah tala said turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that is sincere, and therefore we may when we make Toba we are turning towards Allah subhanho wa Taala geladeira

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

And the key thing about that is that we live our

00:05:07--> 00:05:11

previous life, we live the way that we used to live.

00:05:13--> 00:05:13


00:05:15--> 00:05:22

you can probably hear some birds sounds, those are blue jays and then there are some girls around. Because

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

they're all complaining because the moment they

00:05:28--> 00:05:36

the moment they see the fisherman on the boat, they are waiting for scraps, and fish and so on. So

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

they're making their eagerness known.

00:05:41--> 00:06:10

So instead, while on top of these are, these are two related and connected things is the fire comes first before so why because the fire is to be sorry about what you were doing. That is the foundation of all goodness. And everything else comes out of that and tava is to actually make the make the decision to change and to change bring about physical measurable change in your and my life.

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

In my view,

00:06:14--> 00:06:19

one of the finest examples of foreign Toba

00:06:22--> 00:07:02

is the from the seat of sources, is the time where Allah subhanaw taala revealed the final Ayah which prohibited the consumption of alcohol. This is such a powerful story. And of course, I would have told you that many times, you know, one of the things that I always say is that Alhamdulillah there is nothing new in Islam. There's nothing new in Islam, and this is one of the major mistakes a lot of people do, where they try to in trying to please their audiences in trying to, you know, attract people who are looking for sensation to them, and they try to

00:07:03--> 00:07:39

invent things and they try to, you know, interpret and reinterpret and over interpret things and connect to and to and make 22 all of this is very dangerous. All of this can lead you into her arms can lead you into actually making statements which can be theologically speaking islamically speaking, extremely damaging for the person making the statement and extremely damaging for those who are who believe those people. The other thing is Be very careful of who you listen to. And we believe.

00:07:41--> 00:07:57

So I always tell people, there's nothing new Islam, Islam, Allah subhanaw taala sent us 1400 years ago, and Allah Allah put the seal on it Allah subhanaw taala told us very clearly, Aloma Kemal Tula Khun Dino Kathmandu aleikum

00:07:59--> 00:08:08

wa rahmatullah COVID Islam Medina Latina nice day, I have completed the religion. Right and I have completed my nabba I have completed the

00:08:11--> 00:09:00

blessing on you Dr. Mohammed, Salah, Salah, and I have chosen for you Islam as your way of life Islam as your lead. So what is the what what is new in 1400 years ago, Allah subhanaw taala said this is signed and sealed. This is done complete. There is nothing remaining I have not left something for somebody in later times to discover and invent and create an ad or subtract. No, everything is done. Everything is finished. And 100 led this is complete and Allah called it his blessing and he called it a blessing on the solar hit Salallahu Salam Al Hamdulillah we have something which is total complete, has no gaps in it. It does not need anybody to try to improve it

00:09:01--> 00:09:14

Alhamdulillah This is the final version there is no version coming of Islam after that. Anyone who creates a version of Islam after this is purely and totally misguided. And no

00:09:15--> 00:09:33

one told us this very very clearly pasta cola de la la la Hyrule howdy howdy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Machado Morimoto Sato, Baku llamada de tiempo de la la, la la la la de la gente. Allah

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

told us in the Hadees, which we hear in practically every Juma where he said the best speech is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is the column of Allah. The best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is a Hadees his teachings and his Sunnah his way. And then he said Sharon ohmori Masato Bakula, modasa timbira colabora desde la la la la de la confianza without a

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

exception he said all innovation is misguidance and all misguidance is in the hellfire. So, let us stay far away from all that let us stay far away from all innovations. Let us stay far away from all inventions and all additions and subtractions to the dean.

00:10:19--> 00:10:24

We say what we know and what we know is what Allah subhanaw taala told us

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

told us through the

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

through the agency

00:10:31--> 00:10:44

and through his NaVi Rasul Allah Salallahu alaihe, Salam Alhamdulillah. This is sufficient for us, we do not add to that we do not subtract from that we do not alter that we do not change that.

00:10:45--> 00:11:33

I want to make this very clear. And therefore, it is very important to ensure that we make is the foreign Toba whatever we used to do if it was a deviation from if it was different from what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam brought then it was wrong, whether we did it whether our forefathers did it wherever our parents did it, whether our grandparents did it, whether anybody we chose to believe our you know, so called more shots and pills and whoever, whoever did it, if it was different from what Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam did, then it was wrong. We make it stefarr for or for those people, we ask Allah to forgive them, and we ask Allah to forgive us, and we will not

00:11:33--> 00:11:45

follow their way, because their way was different from the way of Rasulullah Salah, we will follow the way of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, because that is the only way which has a guarantee of Jannah.

00:11:46--> 00:12:07

Allah did not say about anybody else, except for sort of like a solemn and accept the Sahaba and the Sahaba because they followed the way of Manasa Sallam that they were that Allah was pleased with them, and that they were pleased with a lot of the law, the one and Allah said, We want Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with us. So what do we do you do what they did?

00:12:08--> 00:12:26

Islam is about imitation. Islam is not about innovation. Islam is about imitation. It is to imitate it is to emulate Islam is about emulation. Unless rhondella told us very, very clearly these things in the Quran, Lacan, Allah Kofi rasulillah. He,

00:12:28--> 00:12:39

he said for you, the best way of life is to emulate my Nabi sallallahu Sallam is the life of Muhammad Saracen, livan Gara de la valle Yamanaka was

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

the one who

00:12:43--> 00:12:53

wants to and looks forward to the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala and to the day of judgment and the one who makes a lot of Vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala for that person.

00:12:56--> 00:13:25

The way of Rasulullah saw Salah is the best way. Then Allah subhanaw taala told me Sarah salami give him an instruction in order is it called in quantum to hipbone Allah ha buni imitate me emulate me say to them bonamassa salam, those who claim to love Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those who say we are Ashley, Ashley, Kayla, he, those who say we love Allah, those who say we are the pockets of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:26--> 00:14:12

say to them, emulate me do what I do. Say what I say Act, the way I act behave, the way I behave the way the way I behave. You know, every single small or big matter in his life emulate me for Debbie Rooney. And then what will happen you'll be kouvola Allah will love you. Why will Allah love you because Allah Allah says Allah and therefore Allah will love anyone who looks like him walk like him talks like him dislike him, acts like he is vacuum insha Allah, therefore Fateh rione umeko a la jolla Villa Roma como la for Rahim, what is the boundary condition of Allah loving you, your sins will be forgiven and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, Most Merciful. We ask Allah

00:14:12--> 00:14:27

subhanaw taala for his forgiveness and mercy and therefore, I remind myself and I remind you to make lots of his different Toba and this is the thing which Allah Subhana Allah is saying, as one of the characteristics of those people who believe who

00:14:30--> 00:14:48

I like all about iraq man, he said, they repent and believe in Islam and do righteous deeds. Now my brothers and sisters All Praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala who opened for us the door to Toba? Think about that. What would we do if

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

if the door of taba was not there?

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

Now hotaka tabarka

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

by Hannah hum guidetti

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

If Allah had not given us this

00:15:02--> 00:15:22

excuse of Toba if not give us this way of making Toba if I had not given if Allah said for example, you know you will leave you will be rewarded or punished according to what you do. And what you do once is done finished, there is no eraser there there is no control or del there is no

00:15:23--> 00:15:57

you know delete and nothing whatever you have done, this will be recorded, it will obviously it will be recorded accurately. So, nothing will be added to that, but also Nothing can be subtracted. So, what you did you did, and you will be rewarded or punished according to that, if this was the, if this had been the decree of Allah subhanaw taala Tell me what would you have done? What would we we would have been finished because, if the actual, from the day we began to think and act, if our deeds are

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

noted down, and if they are,

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

they are kept there. And if they become the basis of our reward or punishment, then believe me we are we are sunk, we are finished.

00:16:13--> 00:16:34

But Allah, Allah subhanaw taala gave us this way of Stefan Toba, of erasing and erasing, and of deleting, and of cleaning up our act, and not once or twice as many times as you want, right as many times as you want. This is very, very beautiful as this, which I mentioned in the

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

video was a rule where

00:16:39--> 00:17:23

soldiers are upset that there is a man who commits a sin. And you know, he's committing sins, he's doing something bad. And he remembers that and suddenly realizes what he's doing. And he's extremely contrite is very ashamed of himself. And he makes us the heart and He says, oh, Allah, Allah, please forgive me. I'm very sorry. I didn't see. I shouldn't have done it. I am I I sincerely am regretful I apologize. You please, please forgive me. So he makes this is this is the heart to Allah subhanaw taala. And he mixes he makes Toba, he turns to Allah subhanaw taala. He tries to change his life, the sola rasa Allah subhanaw. taala is very happy with that. And he's so happy. He says there is my

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

slave. My slave knows that he has up.

00:17:27--> 00:17:32

Right, so he's asked is up. He's bringing it up. So he says my slave knows that he has a

00:17:33--> 00:17:49

he has a rub, and he knows that his Rob can forgive. And he knows that. And he also knows that his rep Can, can punish. So he is making is the far as begging is up for forgiveness, because he knows that I can punish also. So he's been asking a lot Forgive me.

00:17:50--> 00:17:53

I have forgiven him. So now he says

00:17:54--> 00:18:14

that some time passes along time, short time as Allah decreed this time passes. And then this and during this time, this day, what I'm doing, he has been a good person. He has not committed any sins, neither that particular sin and not any other sin. And then he's human. So what does he do? He commits a sin again.

00:18:16--> 00:18:42

he commits a sin again. And then of course, he suddenly realizes, oh, my God, what did I do? I was, I was clean all this while and then again, I drank again. I smoked again I did whatever I did, immediately, immediately makes Toba he says Allah Allah Allah, please forgive me. I'm so ashamed. I had made it that far to you. But again, I fell into this thing Allah Please forgive us. Allah subhanaw taala says the same thing. He says, my route my slave knows he has.

00:18:43--> 00:19:27

My slave knows that he has a rub, he has his he has Allah subhana wa Taala. My slave knows that is Rob can forgive and he can punish. And I have forgiven my slave. rasulillah salam says, some more time passes, the person is clean. And then again one day he falls into the sin he again commit sin. Again, he becomes very contrite and very ashamed. And he says, Oh Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. I am so ashamed of myself. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me. Allah subhanaw taala says my slave knows that he has arrived. He knows that he is robbed forgives, you know, that is Rob can punish. I have forgiven him, let him do what he wants. Now when is this let him do what he want does not mean that

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

you know now he's free to commit sin as much as he wants meaning there are lots of animals that I will continue to forgive him as long as he continues to seek forgiveness. Allah subhanaw taala said that money in manhood is a cutesy masala Saracen told us that Allah subhanaw taala said that if my slave meets me, if my slave worships no one other than me, right, if I save worships no one other than me, which is La la la la, Casa de la sala that we worship only Allah subhanho wa Taala we do not worship anybody else and

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

Allah says and he meets me with sins, which cover the earth and which are as high as between the Earth and the and the heavens, I will meet him with forgiveness which is greater than that

00:20:14--> 00:20:22

with forgiveness as much as that forgiveness which is greater than that, and this is the, there are many, many houses Alhamdulillah, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:24--> 00:21:12

is is So, forgiving that like any of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, it is not given to a slave to be able to fully explain any attribute of Allah subhanaw taala. So, this is not possible nobody can do that. I mean, you know, nobody can explain any attribute of Allah subhanaw taala whether it is his attribute of being the harlot, or of his attribute of power and control, or his attribute of his beauties, Jamal or Allah is all and majesty or his forgiveness, His mercy, which is bigger than everything else, we cannot we cannot possibly even begin to describe that forget about bringing justice to it, and Alhamdulillah for that because we are so happy that whatever we do, as

00:21:12--> 00:21:37

long as we turn towards Allah subhanaw taala the mercy of Allah is sufficient for us inshallah, we ask Allah for this. So Allah there's so many so many ideas like this hamdulillah The key thing is, and of course there is plenty of Quran as well. I mean, it's not only a hadith it's also plenty of Quran as well, where Allah subhanaw taala promised to forgive one of the most beautiful out of this, Colin Gundam, Colin Gundam Allah said, Paul.

00:21:38--> 00:22:31

Yeah, Eva de la Vina Ashraf Oh Allah unfussy him la tekna to Mira Mattila in a la yaku by Jamia in the whole world of Rahim. Allah subhanaw. taala said, say to them Yamato Salaam Allah says, See the widow the beauty of that call? Yeah, Eva de la sing directly to the to the to the people which about say, Oh, my slaves, which slaves? Is he talking to the MBR Lane was a lab that had been was was that was solid? No, he's in Korea, a buddy levena asafo, Allen fusi. say to them, I all my slaves who have transgressed against Allah Subhana against themselves as of Allah and fusi who have transgressed against themselves. Now brothers sisters, I remind you of myself.

00:22:32--> 00:23:11

Sin is like, you know, that think about this? Would I, for example, take some acid and throw it on my face? No, would I do that? Would I set fire to set fire to my beard? Would I slash my face? Would I blind myself in it? I would I stabbed myself in a year. I mean, imagine just seeing these things is so repulsive and so horrible. Obviously, you will say no, of course, you would not do that. Why are you mad? I mean, why would you do that? If anyone does that, then this person would be manacled, and they would be, they would have to be restrained. Now because you would say this person is insane. Because they are harming themselves. They're there they are destroying themselves. My

00:23:11--> 00:23:28

brothers sisters, that is exactly what we are doing when we are committing sin. Just think about this. This is what we are when we are committing sin, what are we doing? We are transgressing against ourselves, we are harming ourselves, we are damaging ourselves.

00:23:30--> 00:23:38

And why would you do that? I mean, just think about that. That for somebody, that the comparison of somebody who deliberately commits a sin.

00:23:39--> 00:24:17

Right? I'm not talking about somebody who intended for example to sleep to to wake up was a little further and he fell asleep and he you know, didn't manage to wake up I'm not talking about I am talking about somebody who deliberately commits a sin somebody who takes a glass of whiskey and brings it somebody who can deliberately I mean, how else can you consume alcohol unless it is delivery you can accidentally you know, drink unless there was some alcohol and something somebody who who goes into a bank and borrows money on interest? I mean, what is what is accidental about that? That that is the most deliberate of deeds. What is accidental about that that's the most

00:24:17--> 00:24:35

deliberate of deeds, you conscious you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala made borrowing and lending on interest Haram. You know that Allah subhanaw taala declared war on the one who indulges in that and you have consciously accepted the declaration of war from Allah.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

Why do you still call yourself a believer? Why do you still call yourself a practicing Muslim? Why do you still go to the masjid? Why do you still pray while you still fast while you while you still sacrifice while you still gives a cat and you think you are doing all of these things, but how is it acceptable, acceptable acceptable from you? There is no Zakat on harmony if your income has become invalid.

00:25:01--> 00:25:07

You think you're paying Zakat, if you haven't paid it, it's it's trotted up against your liabilities.

00:25:08--> 00:25:27

So deliberately you have chosen to accept a declaration of war from Allah subhanaw taala. What is what is accidental about that. So these these are things which is like slashing of is throwing acid on your face blinding yourself, cutting off your nose cutting off your lips, it is, it is like that it is even worse than that.

00:25:28--> 00:25:41

Because any physical damage to yourself Alhamdulillah today we have got enough medical technology to repair most of it, if not all of it. And even if you don't repair it, it's a physical,

00:25:42--> 00:26:25

physical wound, it's a physical thing. It will get cured, it might leave a scar. But once you are in your grave, that scar won't matter. Nobody's there to see it. Even when you are alive after a while people get used to you used to you know, your one eyed self or your noseless self, or whatever the case might be. But the sin can continues and carries with you and stays with you in the grave. And then it comes in it is resurrected with you on the day of judgment and it is there with you. And it will harm you on the day of judgment and that harm. There is no medical technology to cure it. And that harm stays with you forever. May Allah protect us from ourselves how much? How many times must

00:26:25--> 00:26:26

one See this?

00:26:28--> 00:26:44

How many times must one say this? Please stop doing this thing that hora de la Vela. These are not signs of intelligence. I mean, hamdulillah you're intelligent people by why why would you behave in in a way which is so completely insane? Unless there is a major problem with your Eman?

00:26:45--> 00:26:53

There's only believe me I'm sorry, I am not trying to insult you. But I'm telling you there is no understand if you have if you have a different understanding, please explain We are very happy.

00:26:54--> 00:27:01

In my view, there is nothing that explains this for an intelligent person to deliberately do something which is harmful

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

only means one thing that he does not believe it is harmful.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

Otherwise I would otherwise why would he do that?

00:27:13--> 00:27:14


00:27:15--> 00:27:34

For a intelligent person to do something which is self destructive, deliberately to do something which is self destructive? What does it tell you? It means that that person really does not believe that this thing would destroy him. Because it is not the sign of an intelligent person to destroy himself.

00:27:35--> 00:27:43

So if he's doing something which is destroying him, all you can say is you know what I mean that person does not really believe that this thing will destroy him. So he's doing it.

00:27:45--> 00:28:18

So decide for yourself. Really let us let us be take this decision once and for all. Do we have a man out or we don't have the money we can't be there is no mid path between Eamon and Cofer between Avon and lack of even even doesn't come in grids. Right? I've got 10% demand, somebody else has got 25% demand doesn't come in grids. You either have a man or you don't have a man you are a believer or you are not a believer. You can't be there's no in between place. In somebody who's not as not not not. You can't be an MD I'm a slight believer.

00:28:21--> 00:28:43

So please make a decision. Right? So Allah subhana wa Jalla delallo So he said, Cole Yeah, Eva the Allah Vina asafo Allah unforseen say oh my slaves who have transgressed against themselves right, la de la to Miramar de la.

00:28:45--> 00:29:14

Do not despair, do not lose hope about the mercy of Allah. la de la toma Rahmatullah in the La Jolla. Pharaoh de Nova Jamia Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive all sins in the whole world for Rahim Verily, and truly Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving and the Most Merciful.

00:29:16--> 00:29:23

Now, what more do we want? What more do we want? We have Allah subhanaw taala telling us to

00:29:24--> 00:29:54

revenge. We have taken like this, we have the first thing is what we have the belief in the aka. So the first thing to ask yourself is do I believe in the asset or not? If the answer is yes, inshallah, the answer is yes, I believe in the law. I thank Allah subhanaw taala for giving me this belief in the chakra, which is the defining belief This is the distinguishing belief. And this is the belief that what sets me apart from a non Muslim that I believe in the akhira

00:29:57--> 00:29:57


00:29:59--> 00:30:00

So I think

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Alhamdulillah I have this belief al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen.

00:30:04--> 00:30:53

Now what? So if I have this belief in the afterlife, then what? Then I prepare myself for the meeting with Allah Subhana Allah. So I live my life as purely as I can to the best of my ability and I continuously make us different Allah. So Allah Baraka, Zayn Kalia, Eva de la Vina Savalas to see him say to them Yamamoto Salah, who, to those who have transgressed against themselves and see the beauty of this ayah Allah did not say say to those who trans, I say yeah, oh my slaves who have transgressed against your say against yourself, think about these two sentences separately, say to them who have transgressed against themselves, this is a sentence of distance, this is a sentence

00:30:53--> 00:31:36

which you can say shows perhaps implies, you know, some dislike, and you might say, Well, you know, is highly justified dislike I mean, people have done these things. They say over there, that you over there, you over there, say to those who have transgressed that's one sentence. The other sentences. Yeah, Eva de alladhina Saku Allah said to them, or mine slaves who have transgressed against themselves, right? Allah subhanaw taala is including, say, oh my slaves, think about it. Why would you call somebody who transgress against you? Do you do that? Do you do that? Somebody who harmed you somebody who?

00:31:37--> 00:32:20

who disobeys you somebody who constantly, you know irritates you? Would you call him my, my friend, my son, my daughter, my person, my people? Would you say that? Of course, you will not see that you would say these are useless. I mean, they, you know, I've been cursed by these people. I've been cursed with these people. I wish they were not there. You know, what kind of what kind of companions do I have? Let me get away from them. Go away. You know, we were told Allah subhanaw taala, saying my slaves who am I? Who is he calling myself? Those who transgress against themselves meaning those who disobeyed Allah Subhana Allah saying, say to them, yeah, Mama Salah, or my slaves, who have

00:32:20--> 00:32:58

transgressed against yourself? And then what is Allah saying there is did Allah say, you have done that and I will punish? You know, Allah says, Do not despair, of the mercy of Allah. Why is Allah saying this, because this is one of the things this is one of the ways in which shaitan prevents us from repenting. Shannon tells us, you know what, you are 60 7080 years old, you've done this, before you have done this shift. You have been worshipping idols and graves and god knows what are your life, you are now this, you know, you are known for this. And you have been, you know, drinking alcohol or God knows what you were doing throughout your life, right? You have borrowed all this

00:32:58--> 00:33:13

money and so on and so forth. Now it's not possible, Allah will not forgive you what is done is done. Now Forget about it. Just live your life because this is not going to happen. This is what shaitaan tells us. This is what and Allah is telling us the exact opposite. Allah says no matter what you do,

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

do not despair of the mercy of Allah.

00:33:19--> 00:33:57

Do not despair or the boss you will never say Allah will never forgive me. So Allah is a beautiful Hadees where a man said to somebody somebody went to this man and he asked him, he said, You know I've done all these sins, will Allah forgive me? I hear the bad what is wants to make our misery will Allah forgive me? This man says Allah forgive you for that and I will never forget. Allah subhanaw taala says, This man is trying to rule over me. This man is trying to say what I will do and I will not do I will forgive the man who committed the sins and I will put this one who tried to rule over me into Jana.

00:33:59--> 00:34:38

So this is what Saturn does. And that's why Saturn will go to Jana one of the many reasons which is that he tells you that Allah will not forgive you. My brothers and sisters don't believe it I believe Allah Subhana Allah said he will forgive you and inshallah Allah He Allah will forgive you and me, provided we make is the foreign power. There are many things that Allah forgives, even without is the foreign power. For example, as soon as I said that when a person when one when we make whoodle as we wash our hands, the sin drop since dropped from our limbs as dry leaves fall from trees. So this is how beautiful it is.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

One person, one Muslim smiles and another Muslim, that's violet Sokka and Allah Montana forgives the sins of of both of them. One Muslim meets another Muslim, Allah, Allah forgives the sins of both of them. So dasara Sallam said Mr. Muslim was going was traveling to another town, Allah subhanaw taala sentence

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

Angel and of course Allah subhanaw taala knows everything Allah does not need to, to send angels to find out anything. Allah knows everything by Allah swatara sends these angels and Allah subhanaw taala does these things and made that happen to us also imagine the beauty of that if that happens to us, an angel comes and meets you and talks to you. So,

00:35:20--> 00:36:00

if that happens, I happen to love you ask Allah for such karma, so that our our mantra becomes stronger and stronger inshallah hamdulillah glorify Him, and we praise Him, and we try to express our love for him. So Allah subhanaw taala send his angel came to this man who was traveling from one town to another town, the the angel appeared to him in the form of a human being. And he asked him, where are you going? The man said, I'm going to such and such a town. The angel said, for what why are you doing that? He said to meet. so and so. You know, this other Muslim brother of mine, the angel says why I won't meet him. He's just like that he's I'm going to meet him. Because I haven't

00:36:00--> 00:36:12

seen him for a long time. I would like to meet him. He's my brother in law is a Muslim. And I will just express my friendship for him. My affection for him. I haven't seen I've been missing him. So I'm going to meet the angel says,

00:36:13--> 00:36:25

Are you going to meet him? You're going to meet him you'd be happier. But are you also going to meet him? Because there is some business deals you are doing with him? So this is in connection with that? Or are you going to meet him because

00:36:26--> 00:36:31

this person is you he owes you some money? So you're going to you know, to to,

00:36:32--> 00:37:12

to act to to take a repayment of Oz money. Is there some other reason? The man said no, there's no reason I'm just you know, he's my friend Angela is going to meet him. I've been missing him. So I'm just going to meet him. The angel says Then the angel reveals himself and he says I am a Moloch I'm not even being and I have been sent by your Rob dolla dolla Lu I've been sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To give you Bashara to give you this glad tidings that because you are traveling to meet this brother of yours, only and only for the pleasure of Allah only because he's your brother, Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven your sins and Alliance forgiven the sins of your brother. May Allah

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

subhanaw taala enable us to do that ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:37:16--> 00:37:23

in these days of quarantine and quarantine and days of

00:37:24--> 00:38:12

you know, difficulties in travel and so on, to decree this for us or even when we make any effort to meet each other, and to communicate with each other, and to express our affection for each other. If you make a phone call, if you make a if we make a you know, video call or if you if we send an email or write a letter We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us this reward inshallah for Allah nothing is difficult and for an admirer of Jalla Jalla who has the his generosity is beyond all of this, ask Allah this for us and then when inshallah when we are able to travel, then let us go meet people. I mean, there are people I mean, I know people who live in the same city and they don't meet, they

00:38:12--> 00:38:50

don't meet each other. Now, what's the problem? I don't understand, go meet each other. I mean, you know, not not in his COVID times. But once insha Allah wants this Baba is over in sha Allah and go and meet people but right now you can do that you can you know, call somebody or don't call them in the middle of the night may send a message saying it just won't talk to you just set up a call to talk to them, you know, set up a video call. Technology has made it so easy for us to today to meet each other to to express our affection and our love for each other to ask about each other. How are you doing? You know, you can make draw for somebody, right? So you don't have to. Even if you can't

00:38:50--> 00:39:05

do something materially you can make draw for somebody. So ask them how are you doing? Can I help you Can I do something and if you can't do something if you have no had them, so Allah subhanaw taala c'est la takato Morocco de la in LA LA yaku de novo Jamia Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive all sins

00:39:06--> 00:39:15

are talking about today, the importance of seeking the forgiveness of Allah. So obviously the question is if I ask forgiveness, will I be forgiven? Well, I'm giving you the

00:39:16--> 00:39:51

I'm not giving you my opinion. I'm giving you the DeLisle, from the column of Allah and from the from the teachings of Rosaura Salaam, beyond which there is no there is nothing which is superior to that. So Allah subhanaw taala is telling us Yes, Allah will forgive you do not have do not despair of the mercy of Allah. And then Allah say, in the La Jolla flew by Jamia Verily Allah subhanaw taala forgives all sins in the whole world. Oh ye Verily Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving and the Most Merciful.

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

Allah is the most forgiving and most merciful

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

smila as I'm talking to him, seeing

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

Little sparrows but this big,

00:40:03--> 00:40:49

you know, these things building I think he's building a nest because she's trying to uproot or break off a piece of a blade of grass. And the amazing thing is she's sitting on another tiny chute and then leaning over and pulling a dis grass. So Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah has given these birds, amazing creatures. Anyway, the the point I want to make is that in our world for him sake, this is so beautiful, Allah saying, Do not despair, or you or you people do so three, four things very quickly. One is to sin is is like throwing acid, you throwing acid on your own face, please don't do that. It is damaging to yourself. It does not have Allah subhanaw taala it harms you and

00:40:49--> 00:41:23

harms me when I commit a sin. I'm harming myself no intelligent person will do that. If you think you're intelligent, and you're committing sin, then you're not intelligent, simple as that. So number one, number two is whatever you may have done right? No matter how much acid you throw on your face, remember it can all come back perfectly because this is Allah subhanaw taala and Allah told us and he said do not despair of the mercy of Allah What must you do? Make is the far make Toba apologize to Allah subhanaw taala change our and change our lives. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to do that which is pleasing to Him and to save us from that which is displeasing to Allah

00:41:23--> 00:41:34

subhanho wa Taala because if we displease Allah, we are harming ourselves was Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was savage named Rama, Rama Rahimi, while hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam alikoum
