Fill out another evil hundred euro mina alameen wa salatu salam O Allah shuffelin via evil mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Steven Kaziranga Sierra Nevada myrobalan sisters in Ely data, we are in our class of law of the Illuminati
club of the Houma to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us among those who will be considered as the as deserving and as
worthy representatives of Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam in this life, and that, like the Sahaba were,
that we become the examples and role models, by which other people will judge themselves and role models that other people will aspire to be like.
We are on the blind have
of action and
actions which denote
which are indicative of a belief in the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the uniqueness of Allah subhanho wa Taala of him being the only one worthy of worship, and nobody and nothing else beside him along with him, instead of him. And in the end, in the belief, that also lies Our solemn is his last and final messenger, the one who was sent to us and who we follow, and who we attempt to follow belissa and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to include us, among those who were given the Bashara, the good news of the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Allah, those who come after the Sahaba and who make a diva, and who follow and emulate Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam who tried to
do that bill Hassan Elijah did.
My brothers and sisters,
we are looking at, as I mentioned, do action. And of course, the question is and arises, and this question is entirely legitimate. And the question is entirely justified. If a person says, Well, you know what, I think I got all this wisdom and understanding and guidance and so on. I'm happy I got it. But I it looks like I got it a bit late.
If I reflect on my life, of what asked, and there was much in my life that I
that I should have done differently. There is much in my life that today I look back on it, and I regret that I did these things.
I there is much in my life, where I reflect and I regret that I did not do what I should have done.
Be it with respect to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Be it with respect to the our dealings with people.
How we teach our parents, for example, how we raised our children, for example, how we behave with our siblings, our friends and relatives, how we behave with other people in society, how we conducted ourselves, in business, in politics and
in administrative responsibilities, to whatever extent we may have had them and so on and so forth. I mean, we may have even been in a situation where we have a lot of regrets.
This is true for the screwball anyone with a conscience, if you lived a life where
you should have done some are Sins of commission, some are sins of omission. Of course, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive those sins which we committed without knowing. But Allah is witness I May Allah forgive us. There are many sins we committed. We knew it was wrong. I mean, we did not do this by mistake, right? We didn't know that. You know, I know I don't want to make a list of stuff. But you know, and I know that I even had the moment we were committing that sin. We knew it was wrong.
Would you believe was
watching yet we shamelessly committed that sin. Right? I remind myself a new one of the things to do is to go and stand in front of a mirror, look at the mirror and say you did that, and you better accept it and believe it. And then, of course, repent to Allah subhanaw taala and seek His forgiveness. There are many things May Allah forgive us, as I told you so many things, I don't want to make a list of all the stuff here that you know what you did, I know what I did. And said, Do not talk about anything negative in your past. So many people have this habit and they say, Oh, you know, I used to do this, I used to do that I do. I was I was on drugs, I was this I was that, and so
on and so forth. And today I have changed, you know, be there as it may there are some people who argue and say that this is really encouraging for other people. And that is the reason I'm saying it. But my contention is two things. First of all, Rasulullah Salim said, do not mention your sins of the past. He did not say mentioned them for the encouragement of other people. He didn't say that right. He said, Don't mention them. He said what Allah has hidden, keep it hidden. If Allah subhanho data did not expose you, if Allah subhanho data did not catch you in the middle of that sin. He didn't take your soul away while you were committing haram so that you would be resurrected in a
state of committing Haram. Allah did not do that, unless Martha had mercy on you. Allah Subhana del also didn't expose you at that time you are not ashamed about committing the sin before Allah. But if that sin had been opened, open up and reveal to your wife, your father, to your mother, to your children, to your husband, you would have been very ashamed. You're not ashamed of me of doing the sin before Allah, but you are ashamed of doing that sin. And I am ashamed of doing that sin before people I love and people respect. But Allah subhanaw taala covered up that also, Allah the limb, say, okay, so you're not you're not ashamed or committing in front of me. So I'm going to open this
and expose it to everybody else. Let them see that. So I mean, nobody is as important as Allah. So if you don't mind, or if you don't mind being shameless before Allah, then there's no problem. Be shameless, deploy before your children, right? No problem. So Allah didn't do that Allah subhanho wa Taala, covered up that sin and hid that sin. So Surah Surah serves and now don't go and announce it to people in the world and say, I used to do this, I do that there is no need to do that. That is one reason. Second reason, which I also advocate do not do this is because it Believe it or not, it makes you proud, it makes you arrogant, because you will, whether you are saying it or not, believe
me, whether you are inside your heart, you are saying oh my god, I was so bad, I'm so good. And these people are so bad. This is happening, whether you agree or you don't agree. So my suggestion is, don't do that. Just talk about what you should do what somebody should do what somebody else would do what you are doing, and Alhamdulillah propagate the good. If there is some,
if there is some evil, if there is some, something bad in your past, Allah has hidden it, keep it hidden, as they say, every sinner has a future and every saint has a past. That is the core is probably in English. every sinner has a future. And every saint has a past. So there's no point and there's no value in talking about your past. So please don't do that. If you want to talk about the past of somebody which was bad and that, and in the, in the future, they became well, there are enough examples from our history of people who were
who were I guess I don't the names, I'm not gonna mention them. What allegedly, but we know he from history, there were people who were vandals there were people who are all kinds of things in the past, and then they converted the change, not converted as it came into Islam. They were already in Islam, but they converted in their way of thinking and so on so forth, and they became good Muslims Alhamdulillah and they remained on that and inshallah they died on that and airline threw them in the idea of Allah subhanaw taala. So, don't don't talk about your sins. Now, wind therefore, is that I have
committed sins and of course, all of us have done that. What do I do today?
What must I do today, and that is where today's lesson is, which is that given and this is a this is a given this is a like a boundary condition. I mean, if you if you were alive, you committed sins as simple as that. Either you did something who should not have done or who did not do something you should have done. Every one of us is in the same boat, believe it or not. Now, if we are there, and as I said, we are there, then what must I do today and the thing to do today is to seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
With the certainty that
Allah Subhana Allah will forgive us because this is what he promised to do.
Rather than just as All Praise to Allah smarter, who opened for us the door of taba, what would we see? What would we say? If there was no way to seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as forgiveness?
What would we say if you know this is a word of cause and effect, right for every cause there is a, there's an effect. There's a action and reaction. Newton's third law every action has a reaction which is equal and opposite.
If Allah subhanaw taala, upright that principle of physics, which also he created, a law created Newton and allocated Newton's knowledge. And last month, Allah created his ability to explain what he was seeing in the in the world to us so that we can understand the world better. So if Allah subhanaw taala applied that principle of physics also to since to say that every good deed will have a good effect, and every sin will have an evil effect. And if Allah subhanaw taala had said, had applied this rule, believe me today, none of us would have been
whole and none of us would have would have had lives that we have under law today, we have lies which we can only be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for
but we wouldn't have had that we would have had life which were I mean, so voting for example, last Mandela said if you look at something or have instant reaction, now what for example, take this, if you take some acid that we please don't even think about these things, right. If you take something toxic, and if you eat it or drink it, then what happens? You will die or you will become you become very sick.
You eat haram what happens? Nothing happens. You eat doubtful stuff, you eat things which are which you know, number one, you are eating that stuff only out of desire you it's not it's not critical to your life. Number two, you know it is doubtful. And for that you are now fatwa shopping and finding some compliant Alamo will give you the fatwa to say that this is okay.
You do that what happens to nothing else do because the law of cause and effect Allah subhanho wa Taala has kept it suspended Allah is not remove it, he's kept it suspended.
You put something toxic in your eye, what will happen, you will lose your sight, your eye will get damaged, you look at something haram what happens, nothing happens.
Same thing for your years everything for your your hands and feet. Right, you would take this example and apply it to anything physical and material in this in this world and in his life, you will find that if you did that, in a physical sense, if you did that, in a material sense, there would be an instant reaction.
Instantly something would happen. But in the case of sins,
apparently, nothing happens.
This is where shaitan
takes you on because shut down does not allow you to understand and accept one very critical thing. And that is that the damage that sin is doing is only hidden, it is not absent. And to help you understand that. Let me give you
two examples. One,
if you smoke, right, if you smoke cigarettes, or whatever,
what happens to you? What is the visible effect of that? Nothing. I mean, your breath stinks. And if you are in a room that nobody else can go into the room after that, because it stinks. But leave that aside, I'm saying that physically to you. If you smoked 20 cigarettes a day, 40 cigarettes a day, whatever what happens? Nothing happens. Right? You are you walk free. But is that really true? Because you know, and I know that what actually happens is that you can see what is happening. Your alveoli are filling up with carbon, your carbon and your your oxygen exchange capacity in your in your lungs is decreasing. And that effect is almost permanent. I'm saying almost because even if you
give up smoking after having smoked for a long time, even if you give up smoking, your lungs do not return to 100% straight away. Your lungs are still impacted with that. With the toxins that you put into your life that I'm talking about carbon carbon is perhaps
the thing right?
filling up your alveoli may not
Sounds like a nice thing, but it's probably the most benign thing. Cigarettes give you God. I mean, there's so many chemicals and toxins in cigarettes, that it gives you all kinds of other problems. I'm not even talking about that. But I'm saying even if you give up smoking, the effect of that does not immediately go away, what you have done remains, your lungs are still impaired, your lungs are still damaged, and your capacity for oxygen exchange your capacity for benefiting from
from the from the air you breathe is reduced, and it is reduced in proportion to how long you were, you've been smoking. But you can't see the effect of that. So it's not as if there's no effect, it's just that the effect you can't see. And remember, the effect you can't see is equally
dangerous is equally lethal, if not more.
So, also with since the effect of the Xin is on the soul, it is on the heart, that as soon as I said every time a person commits a sin there is a black spot that gets put onto the heart. And if we commit sins for a long time, then the whole heart becomes black. Because black means what means the nor exchange capacity of the heart, the hearts capacity to absorb the unware of Allah subhanaw taala to absorb the, the beauty and majesty and grace of Allah subhanaw taala of his presence or the capacity to understand hardship of Allah, the capacity to have that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala gets him fed and when it completely is covered with this suit, and this carbon of since
then it is it is munakata it gets cut off, the capacity to connect with the loss of antenna gets cut off. And when the capacity to get to connect with a leg it's got to cut off what happens to the heart, the heart becomes full of depression and sadness and grief and the art gets hard gets full of anxieties and fear and phobias of all kinds of things.
effect is not immediately visible. One of the best examples of something to the effect of which is not immediately visible, but which is potentially lethal. We are living in that which is COVID times if you get infected by core by the Coronavirus And may Allah subhanaw taala protect all of you all those who are listening to this podcast and all those who are not listening to this podcast Bella's mantella protect you from from being infected by COVID-19 by the Coronavirus if you get infected by the Coronavirus what is the immediate sign nothing.
That is actually one of the most dangerous aspects of this infection which is that there is no sign of having been infected. That is the reason why we must all always wear masks, we must avoid crowded places we must avoid congregations, we must avoid crowds. We must wash our hands frequently we must use hand sanitizer, right? We mustn't go wandering all over the place unnecessarily stay at home. All of these precautions these are precaution these are not cures.
And why we take these precautions because the effect of this thing is not immediately visible. If I break my leg, I know I've broken my leg
but the effect of Corona not visible immediately. So, I may have contracted it I may be infected by it. I may if somebody tells me at that time, interestingly, even the test will not show it as soon as the infection is there, which is why if you look at this the whole thing to me I think we are doing many very ridiculous things. For example, to get on board a plane you have to take a Corona you have to give a coronavirus test report which is negative and which has been taken within 24 hours. Okay, that makes sense. But once you get off on the other end, they do another Corona test. Why? They say you may have got infected during the flight? Yes, of course. First of all, if
everybody who is on that flight tested negative
you yourself are saying that just that negative test doesn't mean anything because they tested negative but they may have contracted the infection before and they are still in that. You know be aware the symptoms are not showing so they're still testing negative.
Okay be there as it may The fact is that on that eight hour flight on that 1415 hour flight if you
contracted the coronavirus by some means Allah knows best.
There is no way that the test at the end of the trip, when you get off the plane, if you take a test, there is no way that that test is going to show up that infection. But we are still testing
I think it's better to be more careful than to be less careful. So by all means, please
test as much as you want. But my point is not I'm not selling courses. I am saying here that just because you don't see the effect of something toxic, something negative, something dangerous, it does not mean that not affecting you. It does not mean that you are free from that effect. It doesn't mean that you will not be affected, you will be affected if you are in if you are infected by korona some time that thing is going to show up. Whether it kills you or not is a different thing. But it is going to show up. If you smoke, if you drink alcohol, if you do any of those things, they will show up in your life. And saying to that how merciful is almost ran out there
alone, even though he is the one who made this rule also, who made the rules of physics, the one who created the earth because the rules of physics apply on this earth.
The one who created the earth created the rules which apply on this earth
to Allah subhanaw taala made the rules
and what did it take for Allah? What would it have taken for Allah to apply the same rules even in the same rules even for ourselves spiritually? The rule that applies to us bodily in materially what was so difficult about making it also applicable spiritually, Allah would have done that. Allah did not do that. I gave us respites.
Yeah, if you want to speak American respite,
and like give us respect, and love America, give us time it doesn't matter allowed us give us times okay? Even if you're doing it, what must you do? Make our make is different, is still fine. What is declared is to be sorry, we can try to be regretful to be ashamed of what you have done to apologize to see forgiveness.
And Toba is to turn to boo Illa Allah He doe matana suhar Allah said turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sincerely and consciously and thoughtfully,
purely with a pure intention, turn towards Allah subhanaw taala Meaning what? Meaning create a change in your life, create a change in your decision making, create a change in your behavior, create a change in your actions. And this is the beauty of Kabbalah stefarr Allah subhanaw taala
told us about the effect of this world. Mama asako Mimosa button, Fabiola cassava eco warrior one Cassia Allah subhanaw taala seven whatever of misfortune befalls you. It is because of what your hands have earned.
And he part of much Allah said Allah subhanaw taala even though you earned it, you ask for it still a lot of patterns a lot, but some of it he allows it to happen. Allah said xrl fossa will Bardwell Buhari be ma cassava ag nasi leaves Zico home by the lady Amira, La La home yo yo, cold see Rue fill out the phones okay for Ghana, aka to levy I mean, call Ghana axon machinery here, Allah said and evil and since Han trials and tribulations and difficulties and calamities have appeared on the land and sea, because of what the hands of people the hands on men and women have earned by whatever oppression and evil they were doing. And yet Allah will make them taste a bit of that taste a part
of that is not making it the whole thing taste a part of that
of what they have done in order that they may return to Allah subhanho newsy combat Allah the angle, now Allah whom your God and then Allah subhanaw taala said say to the O homosassa lamb, traveling the earth, traveling the land and see what the end of the before you was, most of them were machinery for most of them joint partners with the loss manager.
So what would we do? If Allah subhanaw taala didn't delay the effect and give us an opportunity to depends like someone grabbing a high tension cable. What would we do? If we fried the minute we left one Salah hmm what happens you stick your hand into the into the power outlet what happens finger into the power outlet now you will fry
Instantly they do you grab it cable and that's it. You're toast.
But you do somebody really wants a laugh, nothing happens. You leave 10 salon, nothing happens. You leave Salah for years, nothing happens.
Nothing happens to you physically nothing happens to what you can see. But plenty is happening in the background but we don't see that.
Seriously, what would happen? What would happen if we went deaf the moment we listen to something?
Or if we went blind the moment to look at something
odd if you had a stroke, the moment we uttered anything about anything disrespectful about Allah, or about us or lie Salah salmela God save us the I always remember this beautiful Happy Sunday where he held his tongue
like this, and he said that this will take more people into the Hellfire than anything else
would we be able to stop this from happening? If If this was what Allah subhanaw taala
on YouTube called Instant Karma.
In that Instant Karma happen to you and me
for doing the stuff we do for talking the stuff we dog for eating the stuff we eat, listening to the stuff we listen to.
What would happen to us?
Don't you think Allah has the power to do that?
Don't you think Allah can do it if you want?
What makes us so
you know, people are talking about being brave.
You know, one of the bravest and the stupidest. The one who challenges Allah Subhana bed.
And that's why they say the most ignorant people are the bravest, because they don't understand the consequences. They're so stupid.
ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us hikma to give us wisdom to give us an understanding of the deen
and what do you say about the mercy of the one who creates a world of cause and effect? But in the case of sins, He delays the effect to give us an opportunity to reflect
less on a business world but in this case,
whose need is it to repent?
Whose need is it to be saved from the fire to be granted gender? Who's needed? Allah Serrano is the owner of Jenna and Johanna man he is free from all these

but in Allah cannot be everybody he vasila Allah said if Allah were to punish people, for for that which they earn, he would not leave a single moving creature on the surface of the earth.
But he gives them ratified
until an appointed time.
And when the time comes, then Verily Allah subhanaw taala is ever all seeing about his sleeves.
Just find the fact.
You have nothing. We can do nothing.
And we are so stupid, that we challenge Allah subhanaw taala despite all of that Allah subhanho wa Taala showed us a way to regain his pleasure, even if we transgressed.

And it's not far from his slaves and forgives the sins forgive sins, and he knows what you do.
And he answers the joy of those who believe and do righteous deeds and gives them an increase of His bounty. And as well as for these believers there as well.

Allah subhanaw taala said in silica Zuma
say oh I bet the old my slaves who have transgressed against themselves
who have committed sins, do not despair of the mercy of Allah.
Verily, Allah subhanaw taala forgives all sins. Truly, he is oft forgiving, Most Merciful, and turn in repentance and in obedience with true faith with true inner with true Islam, do your rub and submit to Him in Islam before the torment comes upon you, then you will not be held.

Unless around that I said
except those who repent and believe in Islam, and do righteous deeds for those, Allah subhanho wa Taala will change that sins into good deeds. And unless Allah is off forgiving, Most Merciful, and whosoever repents, and does righteous deeds, then Verity depends towards the last.
true repentance. Please notice, however, can the condition of repentance followed by good deeds applies. lip service has no place in Islam. Any claim to obedience must be sustained with action when
anyone was in La ilaha illAllah with the class will enter agenda. They asked him about in a much vein, they said what is the class of the Columbia solo? Solo Solo Salaam zeds. Allah is Allah He said it is to stay away from home.
My brother and sisters, action is essential for
us. Action is the key factor. Action is what differentiates right from wrong action is what
goes into our book of deeds. Please understand, it's not a book of what you know. It's not a book of anything other than deeds. It's not a book of intentions, right?
The the Kitab which will be given into our hands on the Day of Judgment. What is it?
Is the book
Yeah, very nice. Very good. So what do you do? No, I didn't do any of that. I did the opposite of that.
I wanted to pray but I did not pray.
So what goes into the book of deeds, your intention that you wanted to pray? Or the fact that you did not?
then there is nobody but nobody. None of us is exempt from sin. There is none of us there's not a single one of us who has not committed sins. There is not a single one of us who can claim that From today onwards I will never come into sin Illa Masha Allah.
We ask Allah for his help. We ask Allah for his for his protection from sin. Why production from sin, because protection from sin is protected from
and we ask Allah tala folders, I always ask May Allah protect us from ourselves?
Because we are our biggest enemies.
We are obvious enemies are much worse than that.
And unless we get the stuffs in control,
it's not going to change
the way to get the nerves in control. The way to beat the shader is to constantly and continuously remind ourselves of Allah Serrano data of our connection with Allah Serrano data, of strengthening that connection through is the foreign Toba
of consciousness consciously choosing to do what pleases Allah subhanaw taala no matter how difficult it might seem, and believe me, all that difficulty is here it is shaitan telling you it is your nerves telling you, oh, this is tough, that is tough, nothing is tough, if you choose to do it, and you will choose to do it if you understand the benefit of it. And we ask Allah and the danger of leaving it. If you understand these things, the danger of continuing with the sin and the benefit of living the sin and making is different our if you understand these two things, then nothing is difficult. Everything is very easy.
Sister that's going
to help us remember this life is very, very short.
All we need to do, see what it will do this.
If we control ourselves and make ourselves obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala in that short period of our life, from the time we became accountable, the time we are then puberty to the time we leave this world
far earlier, may Allah protect us from all kinds of sicknesses and so on which
which did the pen
that just beat it
be ourselves and submit to Allah
and live our lives according to the beautiful so now Bahamas
then Believe me the rest of it
You and I inshallah we'll start with will be in a life which is so beautiful, and it is impossible to even try to describe it in this life.
Jenna didn't agree with Danielle and her
in gardens, in which rivers flow
my brother, sisters, citizen he,
the one who does good deeds, the one who controls himself or herself, the one who obeys Allah subhanho wa Taala despite whatever shaitan or their own laughs or their so called friends, advised them is a person who is demonstrating their Yaki in India.
And that's the only thing which comes with
this life, Allah gave it to us as a test.
Well did the test healthy the test, drink to the test, the opposite of all of that is also test, having a family, children and so on our tests.
Our problem today is we see these things from the eyes of jelly even though Allah has given us the eyes of knowledge to see the
One soul was never blessed with children. I have been blessed with children
find me anywhere in the world and what children are called a blessing.
Unlike our children, it test Allah called children, your enemy.
I do well.
In number one oh como la lucam fitna
unless you do well,
in another place, as well as
your wealth, your spouse's, your children, all of these are at best a test and they can be your enemies, because these are the reasons why you get distracted from our last run into
what we say a blessing. It's a blessing. If you make it a blessing, you are given what you are given a child as a test, that if you raise that child, as a righteous person, if you raise that child, to be a righteous person, then that child is your inshallah is in the journey for you. And therefore that child is a blessing for you.
If it is the opposite, that child is a curse for you. It's a curse in this dunya and it's a curse.
Let us see things in the light of this world. The light is life. This life is very short. It's not worth worrying about anything in this life.
Focus on the accurate this life whatever will come to you can go away. And what Allah has not written cannot come to you, you can't get it. So let us focus on what Allah has left in our control and what did Allah even control?
Do I want general Jana who decides it?
Allah Allah gives me whatever asking. And we ask that by our deeds, by our beliefs. If I believe in the heat, if I believe in Allah Spano danijela and I live by, according to the tsunami, then I'm asking Allah. If I am doing the opposite of asking a lover.
ask Allah subhanaw taala pleased with you and ever to be displeased with Allah Allah be very valuable savage erotica. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
