mighty respected brothers, sisters and elders.

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

If I were to try

00:01:03--> 00:01:20

to answer the impossible question, what is the greatest character or what is the greatest quality of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam character, which is evidence of his divine mission that he was the Rasul of Allah SallAllahu sallam.

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

I would say it is his forgiving nature

00:01:27--> 00:01:32

and that is why the title of today's Koba is forgiveness, the binder of the OMA

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

the adhesive, what keeps the Ummah the OMA what keeps it together,

00:01:38--> 00:01:53

his ability to forgive anyone, no matter how much that person may have tried to or harmed him. This is truly something that we need to reflect on. And then examine ourselves and see where we stand.

00:01:54--> 00:02:43

What will we say? And how will we answer Allah subhanaw taala when we are asked why we couldn't forgive someone for hurting our ego, when the one we claim to follow sallallahu alayhi salam forgive those who harmed him physically, emotionally and materially. They killed his closest friends and companions, including his daughter. They tried their best to malign his blessed name and reputation. They tried to kill him many times. They did their best to destroy him and his mission. Yet when he had the power of life and death over them, he said to them what was awfully Sam said to his brother's car Allah the three Valley como Yama? Yes, Phil LeBeau local Wahoo our Hummer Rahimi in

00:02:43--> 00:02:54

Surah Dussel balance pandas Monica has said that usable Islam said no reproach no blame on you today. May Allah forgive you, and He is the Most Merciful of those who have mercy

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

of those who show mercy. That is why

00:02:59--> 00:03:48

the people of Makkah, after it was conquered, are called Aquila, aka the freed slaves of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam. Not only is this remarkable, but what is even more so is the fact that he did not demand any compensation for himself or his companions, who had been forced out of Makkah, and had gone to Medina as refugees. He their their belongings were confiscated, their wealth was stolen from them. Yet as soon as I saw Saddam did not even ask for compensation for what had been stolen what had been taken, which would have been very much his do and something that he would have justifiably done. But he did not do that, that shows his dignity that shows his work on

00:03:51--> 00:04:01

that also shows the amazing character of his companions, the Sahaba ribbon language main which sets them apart from all other human beings on the face of the earth.

00:04:02--> 00:04:10

And it shows the amazing trust that they had in him and the respect that they had for him. that not a single one of them.

00:04:11--> 00:04:40

Though almost every one of them had lost everything they owned. When they went to Medina, not even one protested or expressed any disagreement with their supervisors or decision to forgive everyone without any compensation. Not a single one of them said Professor Salem to say that yours will lights okay if you want to forgive them for yourself, but please, I lost everything I needed. So i Why can't I just get it back? Why can't I get what I have lost? It would have been a justified

00:04:41--> 00:04:51

request if somebody had made that request, but they did not. They respected the decision on Rasulillah as a result of unquestioningly they did not argue they did not say anything about it.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

What must be appealed appreciate it is not only the nobility and magnanimity of this action, but the sheer brilliance of them.

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

Last a stroke, whereby, in a society ridden with the spirit of vendetta and revenge, also known as SLM at one stroke, removed any reason for that, from that day onwards, wrestlers are eliminated his enemies, not by killing them, but by killing enmity.

00:05:23--> 00:05:57

And as they say, the rest is history. One thing that I can say with total and complete certainty is that if Rasulillah Salam had extracted retribution if he had punished people, which he was well justified to do, he would have opened the doors to resentment and plotting of evil against himself and his mission, which would have sabotaged the work of presenting Islam to his people. People would have got involved in that and the whole business of presenting Islam would have would have taken would have been put away to one side.

00:05:58--> 00:06:20

When people felt secure, from punishment, their hearts open to the message of Islam, and the whole of the Arabian Peninsula, accepted Islam without any wars, without any bloodshed, or any force. It was his ability to forgive, which is the adhesive of the Ummah, the brotherhood of faith that he created in Medina.

00:06:21--> 00:06:31

He forgive and those who experienced that forgiveness, forgive and a culture of tolerance and mutual respect emerged. It is this magnanimity

00:06:33--> 00:07:20

of spirit and big heartedness that made us was seldom so beloved to all those who surrounded him and change the hearts, even of those who had been his enemies to begin with. Caliban valido, vellano, and I will suggest or Delano and others who had been his sworn enemies, became his greatest supporters. I call them magnanimity and forgiveness of Russell's Anselm's character, a sign of his prophethood because it reflects the attribute of the one who sent him. Allah subhanaw taala diligent and those around it that I said in this famous idle sort of Zuma call era by Dr. Lena asafo, Allah and fusi him love talking to me Rama Tila in Allah Yellville de novo Jamia in the whole world of

00:07:20--> 00:07:47

oral Rahim and those who are interested in the ad which is called the ayat of the greatest hope in the Quran, which is saying Oh my bad, so say oh my slaves or anybody who have transgressed against themselves by committing evil the deeds and sins, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Verily, Allah subhanaw taala forgives all sins. Truly, He is the oft forgiving and the Most Merciful.

00:07:49--> 00:08:29

It is human nature, to distance to distance yourself from those who disobey, who rebelled against you and who offend you. It is Allah subhanaw taala has attributes to drive them close and to promise forgiveness and His mercy. When Khalid bin Walid Avila no and our Asada Allah who came to Medina to accept Islam, Rosa Rosa, Selim welcomed them and put his own shawl on the ground for Khalid bin Walid, to sit on. Then when they accepted Islam, he made curry Bengali or Vilano, the Commander in Chief of the Muslim army, and give him the title of safe Allah, the sword of Allah.

00:08:31--> 00:08:47

When Vashem in hell are the Allahu came to accept Islam Rasulillah Salam accepted his baya and only said to him, when you come to my image this sit to the side so that I don't see you because when I look at you, my grief for my uncle's death is renewed.

00:08:48--> 00:09:12

The question I want to leave with myself and you is to ask how we who claim to be the followers of Muhammad Salah Salem should behave when someone offends or wrongs us to behave like a pseudo assassin. We must break free of the slavery of our egos and emulate Mohamed Salah Salem knowing that Allah Subhana Allah loves those who do this.

00:09:13--> 00:09:54

In Islam while justice is primary and Supreme, the law recommends forgiveness over and above justice. Islamic criminal law is the only law in the world which permits the aggrieved to forgive the transgressor without any compensation, just for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is unique to Allah subhanho That as Lord who said, We're Jazza who say ye tin say you are to Miss Liu ha from an Alpha was Lucha for Andrew and Allah in the whole law your head bizarrely me the recompense the reward the the compensation for an evil is an evil like they're off.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

You do go you do something evil that similar thing will be done to you

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

But whoever forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah subhanaw taala Verily, he Jalla Jalla who does not like oppressors does not like this anymore.

00:10:14--> 00:10:34

And he said Jalla Jalla, who Wallman sabara was off Allah in the DECA, Lamine. asmita are more and who And verily whoever shows patients who is patient and forgives, that will truly be from the things recommended by Allah subhanaw taala in a beautiful Hadith

00:10:35--> 00:10:39

narrated by Abdullah bin Massoud Radi Allahu anhu, in Bukhari and Muslim

00:10:41--> 00:11:01

Rasulillah Salam said, Verily, I know who will be the last person to come out of Jannah and the last one to enter Jannah he is a man who will come out of the out of Jahannam crawling, and we'll say, and Allah will say to him, go

00:11:02--> 00:11:20

and enter Jannah the man will go, but he will imagine that Jana is full. So he will return and say, All Myra, I have found it for Allah subhanaw taala will say go and enter Jannah and you will have as much as the world and 10 times more,

00:11:21--> 00:11:32

whatever will you whatever was there and on the earth, you will have all of that plus 10 to include and 10 times more. The man will say Do you mock me or laugh at me while you are the king?

00:11:33--> 00:11:53

And the Surah Surah Salam laughter Allah subhanaw taala laughed when he said this, when the man said this, you are laughing at me. And you are the You are the king? How can he see as if to say that how can I have everything in the earth and 10 times 10 times that? I mean, how is this possible, he his mind cannot get around that. This is the generosity of Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:55--> 00:12:03

and this is the generosity of Allah subhanaw taala for the last one to come out of Jannah We ask Allah subhanaw taala for Jonathan for those without his app in sha Allah,

00:12:05--> 00:12:36

that ended up or whatever the lotto in another Hadees also said Allah subhanaw taala says, I am just as my slave thinks I am and are in the Zuni appdb I am for my slave as he thinks I am. That is I'm able to I am able to do for him, whatever he thinks I can do for him. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he is the most forgiving Allah my nigga 1234511 Or you are the one who forgives, you are the Forgiver you like to forgive, so forgive us.

00:12:38--> 00:12:54

So, Allah says, I am just as my slave thinks I am. And I am with him, if he remembers Me, if he remembers Me within himself, I to remember him within myself. And if he remembers Me, in a group of people, I am

00:12:56--> 00:13:23

I remember him in a group that is better than him than his group. I remember him in a group that is better than than they. And if he comes one span, one span is this, between this thumb and this finger. If I if I if he comes to me one span nearer to me, I go one cubed, nearer to him. And if he comes one cubed, nearer to me, I go a distance of two outstretched arms across,

00:13:25--> 00:13:42

nearer to him, and if he comes to me walking, I go to him running and this is the this all of this is in keeping with the grace and Majesty of Allah subhanaw taala. This is the this is the Hadith in Bukhari. And it is meant for us to understand or try to understand the extent and the

00:13:43--> 00:14:29

generosity, the magnificence of the forgiveness and the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala for His mercy, see the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala who loves to forgive? All we need to do is to stop being arrogant and stop defying Allah subhanaw taala and repent and turn to him with sincerity and with humility and humbleness. Abdullah dabbas or Delano said Rasulullah sallallahu said if anyone constantly seeks pardon from Allah is the fog constantly. Allah subhanaw taala will appoint for him a way out of every distress and relief from every anxiety and will provide sustenance for him from where he cannot he does not expect and this is in so on a bit. Shut

00:14:29--> 00:14:46

up. And also Abelardo said that rasool Allah Salam said the best dua for seeking forgiveness, which is called the Savior is too far is to say Allahumma Antara de la ilaha illa and Haluk Danny one Abduch one Allah Ya Allah Allah

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

yy the master tattoo, I will become in Sheree Masato. I will like I mean, emoji guy, Leah wobble with them because for him the whole lie of Pharaoh Goomba he learned Oh ALLAH

00:15:00--> 00:15:50

You are by Rob. There is nobody worthy of worship except you. You created me, and I'm your slave. And I hold to your covenant, as far as I can as much as I can I seek refuge in You from the evil of that which I have done. I acknowledged the favors that you have bestowed upon me, and I confess my sins. Pardon me, forgive me for none, but you has the has the power to pardon Rasulullah sallallahu said he who makes this dua during the day with farm believe in it, and dies on the same day before the night before the evening, he will be one of the dwellers of Jana and if anyone makes his dua at night with farm believe in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from one of the dwellers of

00:15:50--> 00:16:40

Jana. Inshallah, this isn't Buhari. So make this into that let us make this into our daily habit as part of the morning and evening of car to say this dua, centralist afar and say it three times in the morning and three times at night, before we go to bed or sometime in the evening, this is very important to do. Another beautiful had this and as Ben Malik said, I heard Rasul Allah is also I'm saying, Allah subhanaw taala said, Oh, son of Adam, I shall go on forgiving you. As long as you pray to Me without any partners, and you aspire for my forgiveness. As long as you keep seeking my forgiveness, I will keep on forgiving you, whatever may be your sins, or son of Adam, I do not care.

00:16:40--> 00:17:16

Even if your sins pile up to the sky. If you beg pardon of me, if you seek forgiveness, I will forgive you. Also Nevada, if you come to me with an earth full of sins, and meet me not associating any partners with me in worship, I will certainly grant you as much pardon as will fill the earth. And this is intermediary, that loss rather than saying I will forgive anything you do as long as you regret for as long as you seek forgiveness. Rasulullah sallallahu said I guarantee a house in Jannah for the one who gives up arguing, even if he is right.

00:17:17--> 00:18:02

I guarantee I was in the middle of Jannah for the one who abandons lying, even for the sake of fun even as a joke. And I guarantee a house in Jana in the highest part of Jana, for the one was good manners and this is without, however, there are some things that prevent us from going to Jana. It is essential to get rid of these things, if we have them in our lives. I will What are the alarm was there. There also realize that as I've said, It is not lawful. Remember, it's haram it is not lawful for a Muslim to forsake his Muslim brother beyond three days. It is not lawful for what is forsaking for the inside, I'm not as being termed that person, I will not talk to that person I turn away from

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

this person. So it is not lawful. It is haram for a Muslim to forsake and, and and

00:18:09--> 00:18:20

abandoned his Muslim brother for more than three days. And whoever does that for more than three days and days in during that time will certainly enter Jahannam and this isn't so now without.

00:18:22--> 00:18:48

So I find myself when you let us clean our hearts, garages are garbage, discard them now. A graduate like a live call which you are holding in your hand. It burns only you. You only have yourself nobody else. This makes no sense whatsoever, especially when Allah subhanaw taala promised forgiveness to the one who forgives and discards the grudge. Abdullah in our rhondella

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

reported

00:18:52--> 00:19:03

Rasul Allah said the merciful meaning or Raha will be the merciful meaning the merciful person will be shown mercy by a man by the Most Merciful.

00:19:04--> 00:19:18

By an humble Rahimi, the Merciful person will be shown mercy by the Most Merciful, be merciful to those on the earth, and the one in the heavens will have mercy on you. And this is an interior with it. Then he said In another Hadith and in

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

Muslim environment, be merciful to others, and you will receive mercy, forgive others, and Allah will forgive you. And finally Rasulullah sallallahu took an oath. And he said, in a hadith which is written by Abdul Rahman and Alvarado that Rasulillah Salam said, there are three things concerning which by the one in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I would certainly swear an oath and say, wealth does not decrease because of charity. So give charity number two, no man no person man or woman partners another

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

For some mistreatment, seeking, thereby the pleasure of Allah, but Allah will raise him in status thereby. And no one asks of people, but Allah will increase his poverty, that if you if you spread your heart before somebody, Allah will increase your poverty as only Allah nobody other than Allah. And this is a Muslim dibaba, I remind myself, I knew that there is perhaps none of us who has who was more wronged, and harmed and oppressed than him by his own family, his own drive and his own people, yet he forgive all of them. So what is our excuse? For bearing graduates and Refusing to forgive others? Don't we want Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us? Then what are we waiting for? The

00:20:47--> 00:21:29

time to do any good deed is right now, let us forgive whoever it is, right away, whatever they may do, let us do our part and forgive them for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala from whom we beg for forgiveness. Sometimes people ask this question and they say, Well, somebody harmed me or somebody, you know, troubled me and whatnot. And I was wearing a grudge but okay, now I will forgive that person. But that person is very toxic. I don't want to be in connection with that person. I don't want to go talk to that person. I don't want to, you know, again, start a relationship with that person or be with that person. So what should I do? My request by answer to that inshallah is,

00:21:29--> 00:22:05

forgive the person in your heart that don't carry the graduate saw. You don't have to go and restart a relationship with the person who's toxic, they're toxic, so it makes no sense to ward and get involved some more with a toxic person and invite them to do some more harm to you. No, nobody said we said we forgive me say we said be forgiving. We didn't say be foolish. So forgive for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and inshallah Allah will forgive us. There is no need to go and start a relationship with them or start a friendship with them. There is no need for that what is done is done, call us. But forgive them in your heart. Say I have nothing against them. Yara, please forgive

00:22:05--> 00:22:34

them make dua for them. They may Allah forgive them and you also forgive them. Ask Allah Subhana Allah Jalla Delano to accept us to make us forgiving to open our hearts to fill our hearts with no to be fill our hearts with mercy to fill our hearts with the with that with that ability to forgive others because we want Allah subhanaw taala forgive us and we ask Allah subhanaw taala for his forgiveness, while some Allah Allah Allah will carry while Ali he was happy as being Brahma to government or he will hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
