00:00:51--> 00:00:55

My dear brothers and sisters, a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato wabarakatuh.

00:00:57--> 00:01:05

Eat Mubarak to all of you and your families called ROM Antonio. May Allah subhanaw taala accept your sacrifice on this day of his will

00:01:06--> 00:01:40

and be pleased with you and protect you from all evil. Alhamdulillah today we were able to pray Salah trade in congregation while maintaining individual distance and taking all precautions against COVID. Allah subhanho wa Taala granted us the space and the laws and the support of the community and the government and the wherewithal to be able to do this. I thank Allah subhana wa tada on my behalf and on and on behalf of all of you for his great mercy on all of us here in this country in the United States of America.

00:01:42--> 00:02:22

And thinking about our brothers and sisters who cannot celebrate each other thanks to the oppressive, oppressive, dictatorial regimes that they are living under, in different countries of the world. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala for relief for them. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to help them. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to remove their oppressors and punish them. And we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for what he gave us in this country, for us to be able to practice our religion in peace and dignity and harmony. My brothers and sisters Allah subhanaw taala forgives and he doesn't forgive more than he forgives in these first 10 days of the ledger. Today is the last of those 10

00:02:22--> 00:02:59

days. And so in the midst of our celebration, let us not forget to thank Allah subhana wa tada and to seek His forgiveness, success and failure in life is not measured by the amount of wealth or power of property or authority or anything else of this life that we may accumulate because all of it will have to be left behind right here. When we are called to meet our last monitor, real success or failure is measured by whether or not we are able to get Allah subhana wa tallas forgiveness. Let us see the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah,

00:03:01--> 00:03:28

Allah subhanho that encouraged us to seek forgiveness to seek His forgiveness, and he promised to forgive us. Allah subhanaw taala said our will human are shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Kalia Eva da Latina sola for Allah to see him. Love taco Nacho Mira Mattila in La Jolla. Pharaoh luno. By Jamia in.

00:03:30--> 00:04:22

Rahim. Allah subhanaw taala and Zuko Zoomer said which means, say all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, oh, Abadi, all my slaves, all my slaves who have transgressed against themselves by committing evil deeds and sins, do not despair of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all sins, and truly, he is oft forgiving, and most merciful. My brothers and sisters reflect on this beautiful Ayah what you say about our agenda, gentle Who? Who calls those who anger him who transgress against him or disobey Him, my slaves. He's calling them his slaves. He's taking them to himself. What more can we ask? But there is more. There is always

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

more when it comes to the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

because then he said, Ill

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

amela Ramadan sorry. For all

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

the Lula who say he has

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

worked.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

For Rahim, Allah says in Surah Furqan except those who repent and believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala who believe in Islam, and do righteous deeds for those Allah will change their sins into good deeds. Imagine this one is to forgive so

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

wiped out. There's no record of that. But then you are at zero because there is no record, also a good deed. You didn't do the good deed, you read a sin, the sin was wiped out. So now it's zero. But here, Allah subhanaw taala is saying not only will he forgive, but he will change the sin into good deeds. So Allah, so Allah He does he

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

and he is off forgiving, Most Merciful,

00:05:25--> 00:06:10

abuse or luxury, or there are no reported that personalizer salam said, Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to stretch out his hand in the night, so that the singers of the day may repents. And he will continue to stretch out his hand in the daytime. So that the singers of the night we repent until the sun rises in the West. And this is the headings from say Muslim magic, this thing, a lot of Anno dalla will stretch out is and Allah is waiting, Allah is saying, Come to me, I will forgive you all through the night for those who committed sins during the day to return to Him and all through the day for those who committed sins of the night to return to Him, my brothers and sisters

00:06:10--> 00:06:11

what is holding us back.

00:06:12--> 00:06:30

So let's take advantage of this and let us thank our of jela Gerardo for his mercy. Let us not delay because we don't know when the door will open for us. And when those who are appointed to take us before our rub will arrive.

00:06:31--> 00:07:13

What are the Allahu anhu he narrated from Rosaura surah Salah Vizier, I heard him saying if somebody commits a sin and then says oh my Rob, I have sinned, please forgive me. His Rob says, my slave knows that he has Allah. Allah says, My, my slave knows that he has Rabu forgives sins and punishes I have therefore forgiven my slave has since then the slave remained without committing any sin for a while. And then again he commits another sin and he says, Oh my Rob, I have committed another sin Please forgive me. Allah subhanaw taala says my slave knows that he has horrible forgive sins and punishes, I have therefore forgiven my slave.

00:07:15--> 00:07:35

And then the slave remains without committing a sin for a while and then he commits another sin and this is for the third time and he says, Oh my Rob, I have committed another sin Please forgive me. Allah says my slave knows that he has a Rabu forgive sins, and who punishes I therefore have forgiven my save his sins, and he can do whatever he likes.

00:07:36--> 00:07:53

And this isn't a Buhari. Now do whatever he likes, obviously doesn't mean you can go and commit anymore since it means that this is the mercy of Allah. This is a way of speaking figure of speech, to say that as long as my slave continues to seek forgiveness, I will continue to forgive, no matter how many times that is.

00:07:55--> 00:08:28

My brother and sister, let us hasten, let us run towards the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala let us not delay with respect to seeking Allah subhanaw taala as forgiveness there are two things to be done in sequence is the far and Toba to express regret and seek forgiveness and then to change our lives and turn towards Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Zed Westover aura Baku somato boo la in Nairobi Rahim mon vado

00:08:30--> 00:08:44

inserter hos Allah said and asked forgiveness of Europe and turn to him indepedent as forgiveness see forgiveness, and then turn to Him in repentance. Verily my rub is most merciful and most loving.

00:08:45--> 00:09:02

In surah to know Allah subhanaw taala said tokoto stuff rohrabacher Amina who can have far more you will see you silly sama la comida boom did the cumbia Malinois burnin why ajala Khun Jana to wear Jalla kumana

00:09:04--> 00:09:11

and surah No, no Elisa Lam says he's telling Allah subhanaw taala is Troy. DJ Allah I said to them,

00:09:12--> 00:09:59

ask forgiveness from your ability Lalo Verily, verily, he is oft forgiving, he will send rain to you in abundance, and He will give you increase in wealth and children and he will bestow on you gardens and he will bestel on your rivers. To make is that far is to accept responsibility to own our mistakes and our sins and our crimes, to be genuinely regretful and contract, to be ashamed that we committed the sin, though we knew that Allah was watching. How shameful is it that we would not have dreamt of committing that sin. If anyone we love and respect had been watching, yet we had no hesitation in committing that sin.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

When we knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala was watching us, though we claim to love and respect Allah.

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

What will be answered

00:10:09--> 00:10:22

about us as this question when we meeting? Yes reflect on this, if our level of Eman cannot protect us from a small sin, how can it protect us from the fire?

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

That is why it is so important to make genuine and sincere

00:10:29--> 00:10:38

apologies to Alice Renata. And the reason why is the fire this is the reason also why Mr. Fire is the first step to getting the forgiveness of Allah

00:10:39--> 00:11:00

then comes power, which means to turn to change our lives, to change our habits, our speech, our friends, and our focus. The idea is to ensure that once we have made so far and begged Allah subhanho wa Taala, to forgive us, we never return to that sin again. And that is the key in corporate leadership.

00:11:01--> 00:11:20

In leadership development, I teach a technique, which I call mistake proofing, which is really our concept of his stuff, or whatever. And we teach it to a sequence I call the sequence on learn, fix, monitor, own learn, fix, monitor,

00:11:21--> 00:11:43

own that accept that you made the mistake. Don't blame anyone or anything else. Don't say oh, you see, but it's not my fault. This happened that have no your mistake, you made the mistake, either deliberately, or because you were careless, or whatever it is your mistake, own the mistake. And you know why? Because you can only change that which you all

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

if I want to change the

00:11:49--> 00:12:28

if I live in a house, which is rented, and I want to make any change in it, I have to talk to the owner, I can't just go and knock down this wall and build another wall because it doesn't belong to me. The same thing applies to ourselves, I can only change what I own. So if I don't like something, if I made a mistake if I've done something wrong, and I want to change that, first of all, I have to accept that this is my mistake. I did it to own it. Second one. Now learn, not only doesn't mean beat yourself up and get depressed, don't accept the responsibility. That's it objectively accept the responsibility and say, yes, this is my fault. This is my responsibility. I did this. Next one,

00:12:29--> 00:13:15

learn. Ask yourself, why did it happen? objective analysis, no emotions, no emotion, objective analysis. What happened? What else could have happened? What was the provocation? What was the stimulus? What was my response? Could I have responded in a different way? What were the options open to me? I chose this option. Why when I also had the other option, why did I not choose that option? Why did I choose this option? objective analysis and I always encourage people carry a piece of paper and write your observations done number three, on and learn number three fix Now I know why it happened. Now, I know what I did. Now, I know what I should have done. So therefore what must I

00:13:15--> 00:13:15

do?

00:13:16--> 00:13:30

ensure that is never repeated again. fix that hole, shot it, knock it down, pour concrete down that hole that is not going to happen again in my life.

00:13:32--> 00:13:41

So Muslim is the one who does not get bitten from the same hole twice. You put your hand down or you get bitten, you put your hand down the same hole You are a fool.

00:13:42--> 00:14:32

Any action done a second time is a decision. It's not a mistake. Number five, number four, own learn fix. Last one monitor. Now that I own the mistake. I learned why it happened. I've got a fix. Now I must monitor to see if that fix is working. What are the metrics which will tell you that the fix is working? Now we apply this to business processes in the corporate world, but you can apply to personal development and the elimination of sins from our lives. Let us accept and understand one thing and that is a Muslim must never commit a sin deliberately. A Muslim must never commit a sin deliberately. That must never happen. There's no excuse for it. I am not talking about mistakes. A

00:14:32--> 00:15:00

mistake is what happens when you are unaware when you are thoughtless. I'm talking about deliberately doing something which is wrong. I'm talking about deliberately doing something knowing that it is wrong knowing that it's a sin, knowing that it makes Allah angry, but we still do it. What do you say about people who drink alcohol Muslims who drink alcohol Don't they know Allah? It makes Allah angry. Don't they know it is? It is haram? What about Muslims?

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

are dealing with bank interest? Don't they know it is haram? What about Muslims who are selling haram products in their shops? Don't they know it is haram? Don't they know that they are up gela gelato is reserved for Jehovah till Mateen that he can feed them he has the strength and the power to feed them without them indulging in Haram. If you don't believe that about Allah subhanho wa Taala Why are you worshiping Allah subhanaw taala if you are rubbish so weak that he cannot even feed you unless you indulge in Allah. What why worshipping such a weak Rob knows we laugh.

00:15:35--> 00:15:48

Now brother and sister Stop fooling yourself. Stop fooling yourself. Allah told you to do what is halal because it is good for you. Allah told you to stay away from haram because it is good for you, not for Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:49--> 00:16:13

And if you stay away from Haram, Allah can still feed you. There is no need to worry about that. My brothers and sisters, how can we as Muslims deliberately disobey Allah Subhana Allah, we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala we believe in the Day of Judgment, yet we commit sins deliberately. How's that possible? Tell me, how is that possible? And if it is happening, what is that a sign off?

00:16:14--> 00:16:20

What is that symptom? What is that symptom telling you? What is that a sign off?

00:16:22--> 00:17:05

Today, if we get any symptoms of COVID if I can't breathe properly, if I lose my taste, or any kind of I have a fever, if I have a persistent cough, any of the symptoms of COVID instantly I get alerted I get myself tested, I enter I get into a hospital I start treatment, because I don't want COVID tell me if you get COVID what's gonna happen you will die, you will die anyway. But you don't have to hold Jana. That doesn't have to happen any any way. And if you land up on the Day of Judgment, and you are judged, and your list is in the name of the enemies of Allah, those who accepted a declaration of war from Allah. Who are those people, the people who dealt with interest?

00:17:06--> 00:17:33

If your name is isn't that list, my brothers and sisters, what are you going to do? Tell me? What is your plan? Do you have a strategy? What is your plan? And if you don't have a plan, why are you in this thing? limit your agenda. gelato is powerful and strong enough to feed you and to give you everything you have and more without you indulging in haram leave the Haram and then see the Baraka of halali in our lives.

00:17:35--> 00:17:36

Yes.

00:17:39--> 00:17:50

If we continue to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala despite knowing Allah, despite worshipping Allah, despite believing or saying that we believe in the Day of Judgment,

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

then it's a sign that all that we are saying is false. We really do not believe this.

00:17:58--> 00:18:16

Anyone who believes this, cannot do this. ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live with the awareness of his presence in our lives, so that our lives are full of confidence and tranquility. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to bless you to be pleased with you to feel your life.

00:18:18--> 00:18:52

I asked Allah subhanaw taala to bless you to be pleased with you to fill your life with Baraka to fill your life with his know and his grace and His forgiveness and his mercy. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to keep you in this world with dignity and power and grace and beauty and to take you in that state and to redirect to where he's pleased with you. And I asked a lot to be pleased with you and never to be displeased was Allah Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was savage may be the hermetica hamara amin al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
