Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah Shara film da one mousseline. Muhammad Rasul, Allah is Allah Allah highly highly he was, he was seldom just leaving because Iran kathira. From above the wider brothers and sisters, we are talking about
the fact that Islam came as a way of life and came with ways of living in the seventh century, which are applicable, and which are positive and which are powerful, even today in the 21st century. And it's our contention and believe that this will continue to be the case as long as a loss of health or keeps us on the face of this earth. So why Islam because Islam works.
Now, we looked at two aspects of Islamic teachings that work wonders in our normal life last week, one was giving more not giving exact measure. But more than that, and the second one was expressing appreciation and thanks.
Now this week, let us look at a third one which is forgiving others. If there is one thing that I can tell you, which I can call the lifeblood of brotherhood, the lifeblood of friendship,
it is the willingness to forgive others and those are handled Allah Jalla Jalla who himself encouraged us to seek forgiveness and he promised to forgive.
He said in this beautiful Ayat of surah Zoomer
our human are shaytani r rajim. Bismillah bismil.
Era he called

in whoa whoa whoa Rahim. Allah, Allah said which means say and this is addressed to Rasul Allah is our solemn so unless saying say oh my hubby or my raso say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell the people or Abadi this is these are my words. What are the words of Allah? Allah, Allah saying, Oh my body or my slaves, who have transgressed against themselves by committing sins, do not despair of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala verily and truly and surely, Allah Subhana Allah forgives all sins in Allah young Pharaoh no by Jamia in the whole world for Rahim. And truly he is the of forgiving and most merciful. What do you say about our Rob jelajah Lalo, the glorious and the
Who calls those who angered him who transgress against him who disobeyed him who challenge him, he calls them my slaves. He doesn't reject them. He doesn't throw them away. He draws them to himself. He says my slaves, they just say to them, my slaves, what more can we ask?
But there is more. There is always more when it comes to the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And in this case, he said in Surah con il
ma Milan, Milan solly. Ha, for Ola, Uber de la Jose. De him has
worked on Allah for Allah Rahim Allah, Allah said except those who repent and believe in Islam, and do righteous deeds for those Allah subhanho wa Taala will change their sins into good deeds. And Allah Subhana Allah is oft forgiving, Most Merciful. Imagine, not only did Allah promise to forgive, Allah said, I will forgive and I will change the sins into good deeds. So, you will not simply have a book of accounts, which is just clean, you will have a book of accounts which will have good deeds in the place of sins that we committed. So let us take advantage of this. And thank our Rob jelajah who 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, arrive.
But today, I want to tell you
About what Allah subhanho wa Taala and rasulillah salam told us about the importance of forgiving other people and seeking their forgiveness. If there is one thing that can be gone are the lifeblood of all relationships, of friendship, of brotherhood, it is forgiveness. Think about this, if Allah Subhana Allah didn't forgive us, we would cease to exist, we would perish. If Rasool Allah had not forgiven those who transgressed against him in dive, who insulted him who injured him who tried to kill him,
dive would have vanished from the face of the earth and we know the story I won't take your time during the story now, dive would have ceased to exist along with all its inhabitants.
And for one, we will never have seen Mohammed bin Qasim as soccerway.
As Salafi who brought Islam to our lands,
if Rasul Allah Sullivan not forgiven his worst enemies in Makkah, we will not have seen Khalid bin Valley or the Allahu anhu.
Conquering land after land for the sake of Islam, we will not have seen our us
We will not be will not have seen Abu Sophia and when her Raja lon we would not have had swell when our alano holding the fort in Makkah and holding the people together when the wars and then the riddle started. When people started up austerity and people started rebelling, refusing to pay zakat in the time of our currency. When the soldiers passed away, it became so dangerous that the governor of MCE went into hiding and swell when our Delano, the man who negotiated these treaty or who they were, he held them in place because he was a great auditor, and he called the people and he told him to stand firm behind Abubakar
and not to rebel. So mcuh stayed firm, they will be known for helping them
and we would not have had
the Spear of Allah worship in her
slaying muscle mother Leia.
If Rasul Allah has not forgiven the people of Makkah, that would have started a series of vendettas that would have completely sabotaged and destroyed the project of building the oma of Muslims. The Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam eliminated his enemies, not by killing enemies, but by killing enmity.
There is a solemn, eliminated, I repeat that surah Salaam eliminated his enemies, not by killing people, not by killing enemies, but by killing and eliminating enmity.
That is why I say forgiveness eliminates enemies, not forgiving, eliminates friends. decide who you want to eliminate from your life. forgiving, eliminates enemies because forgiving eliminates admitting to forgiving any eliminates enemies, not forgiving, eliminates friends. So decide who you want to remove from your life.
We are all imperfect. And we all make mistakes. Without forgiveness. Our relationships will last only until the first mistake. And after that, it will be all over.
That is our choice. As soon as a seller was very conscious of this, in his task of building the oma the Brotherhood of faith, which the world has not seen before, and has not seen since. Today we talk about numa. But if I ask you to show me the room, can you do this? If you ask me to show you the room, can I do this? I can't.
We are once again nationalities and tribes and races and ethnicities and color and everything except brotherhood and brothers.
Yet we wonder where our strength has gone
unless America reminded us about forgiveness in the incident of the slander.
On say that omona Ayesha Siddiqa
the wife of our soldiers, and our mother, a relative of a worker
who used to receive a pension from saving our currency.
Delano also participated in slander. So, consider for the ranu quite justifiably got angry, and he stopped the pension
and loss of heritage as he will call her, in which he praised Abubakar.
And he reminded us and he reminded him to forgive Allah subhanaw taala said, what a year old foghlaim income was Sati au Otto Lil corba one masa kina. Well, Maharaja Irina feasability la he will yeah for a while, yes forhow Allah to a bona fide Allah, Allah, Allah who are for all Rahim, Allah subhanho wa Taala said which means and let not those of virtue among you and wealth. Now who is he taught these dogma was he saying is Allah rather than saying you are a personal virtue, marginalizing. So he said and let not those of virtue and wealth among you swear not to give aid to their relatives and the needy and the emigrants. The mohajir own for the cause of Allah and let them
pattern and overlook, let them pattern and overlook.
Yeah, for a while, yes.
And then Allah says, Would you not like that Allah should forgive you? Meaning what meaning if you forgive people in his life, Allah will forgive you in this life and the next? Would you not like that Allah forgive you?
Allah to a boner. I fear Allah who lako Don't you like that? Allah should forgive you. And Elias Allah Whoa, Rahim. forgiving and most merciful. This is the best answer to those who bear graduate and say, but he is guilty. He wronged me. Allah did not say that the man who was spreading rumors was innocent. Allah Subhana Allah said, let him pardon and overlook. What do you not like that Allah should forgive you be forgive not because the other person is innocent. But because
he's not. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala because we are innocent, but because we are not. Yet we want Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us. Nevertheless, Allah subhanaw taala reminded us that just as we seek His forgiveness, though we are guilty and deserve punishment, we should forgive those who transgress against us, so that this action would become our means of invoking the mercy and forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
you know, Halley's imao in Masada, Mohammed Abdullah amor de la Noir.
He reported that also Raja Sallam said, be merciful to others, and you will receive mercy, forgive others and Allah will forgive you. Be merciful to others, and you will receive mercy, forgive others, and Allah will forgive you. I'm giving you the Quran and the Hadith for forgiving people. Because in the eyes also to know Allah Subhana Allah said, Don't you want Allah to forgive you to forgive others? In another edition sunan and OSI and has been Malik are the Allahu anhu is reported that a man came prosolo seldom with a killer of his relative. Now Surah Surah Salim said, forgive him, pardon him, the man refused. That's what I said, and then said, take blood money for this.
Take, therefore this demand refused. Then as soon as I said, I'm sad now then go and kill him. You are like him.
He said, Go and kill him You are like him. Then the man came to his senses. And he forgave the man. In another Hades job or the Milan who reported I took part in the expedition with soldiers and sell them against nuts. When the time for the afternoon rest game, we all spread out there was a valley in which there was a lot of Thorn trees and some shade. So they all spread out rustlers himself went and lay down under a tree. He took off his sword and he hide on the tree. And he laid out under the tree and he was fast asleep, one of the enemy, he was following them, he came and he saw the sunset I'm sleeping. So he took the sword from the tree, and he stood at the head of noise and solemn with
a naked sword. And he woke him up and he said, Yeah, Mohammed, who will save you from me now?
Are sorceress Adam said Allah, Allah, Allah. The man's daughter shivering, the sword fell from his hand, or sorceress alum picked up the sword, and he's put it on the man's neck. And he said, who will save you from me now?
And the man said, You are merciful, the soul of of a merciful God. Russell Russell.
Then I asked him, Are you ready to accept Islam? The answer? No. I wish I said, Fine. Sit,
and then you call the people and Jabara. delana said, we came behind me, Sir, sir, I'm calling us. We woke up, we ran. And we saw this tribal Arab sitting there next to him. And then the sorceress alum told us the story. Now imagine here's a man who came to kill the process, and he had a negative sword pointed at the promise of asylum. Now he's completely turned the tables, Oh Allah, that I have to do. And he turned the tables on the map. And then he asked him, Are you willing to accept Islam? And the man said, No, and I wish I didn't kill him. He didn't force him. He didn't. He did not imprison me didn't do anything. He said. The man said, I willing to accept it. He said, I will
accept Islam. The man said no, no. He said No, sir. Okay.
And the man sat down, he treated him with honor. He called his people and he showed them here's his van, because he didn't want somebody to kill them and by accident, so this is also to save the life of the man that we should have surrounded this. My brothers and sisters, and this halogen body and Muslims, I had this I lost rantala wanders about the danger of creating of disputing and creating divisions allows us to move we have Lila hegemony for Rocco was a Corona Mata la la comida cuando tomada and for Alibaba in Apollo v come for us, Baja to manera de Juana, Baka cuanto Mirage for 40 min.

and hold fast, all of you together to the rope of Allah subhanho wa Taala by which is meant the Koran and do not be divided amongst yourselves. And remember, Allah does favor on you, for you are enemies of one another. But he joined your hearts together so that by His grace, you became brothers in Islam, and you are on the brink of a pit of fire. And he Jalla Jalla who saved you from it. Thus Allah subhanho wa Taala makes his eye at the signs and revelations clear to you that you may be guided. Last one is that I did not say law Dr. De feu He did not say do not have a difference of opinion. He said a lot of for Rocco, he said do not become divided. Do not let I remind myself when
you don't let difference of opinion create hatred and enmity amongst you and amongst ourselves. That happens when the ego comes to the fore. And it then it becomes
instead of jointly seeking the truth, it becomes a test about proving that you are right and the other is wrong. The ego is the tool of shaitaan and if we allow that to come in the way then enmity becomes our nemesis. Allah subhanho wa Taala told us what the result of becoming divided is. We are seeing it in our lives. Here is the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala said Why do Allah wa Sula who wala Tana sorrow for tough shallow What does hairbow re helcom was biro in Allah Hamas? Avi read, Allah said and obey Allah and obey His Messenger sallallahu sallam, and do not dispute with one another, lest you lose courage and your strength departs and be patient and have suffer and surely
Allah subhanaw taala is with those who are a submarine. Allah subhanaw taala told us what to do when we have a conflictual situation and how to turn it around in your favor. He said What does the wheel has to say he is far below ability here is done for either ledee binaca verbena Who? watan Ghana who Wali Yun hammy, Allah Subhana Allah said, the good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal, repel the evil with one which is good, which is better. Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to be patient with bad behavior and not respond in kind, but to behave with patience and dignity. people behave the way they have been raised. We must behave the way we have been raised. Their behavior is about
themselves. Our behavior is about ourselves. So Allah said I repeat, the good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. repel the evil
With one which is better, with a good deed, Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to be patient with bad behavior and not respond in kind, but to behave with patience and dignity. And then Allah said, then verily, he, the one between home and you, there was enmity, will become as though he was a close friend.
It's not only about,
about about, you know what happens when that interaction, it's about completely converting that interaction into your favor. Like also the advice of course, it is only good when applied application requires the highest standard of character and patience, which results in a certain exemplified to be patient, we must focus on a benefit that transcends the pain, to be able to continue to work out in the gym, and ignore painful muscles, we must focus on the perceived benefits of exercise. And also last term showed us the benefit of a higher goal of forbearance and forgiveness. As soon as a surgeon said, I guarantee a house in Jana, for the one who gives up
arguing, even if he is right. And I guarantee a house in the middle of Jen, for the one who abandons lying who does not tell her like even as a joke, even for the sake of fun. And then he said that I guarantee your house in the highest part of Jana, for the one who has good manners, and this is in Muslim.
I would, I would finally, or sorceress Allah made the rule to deal with anyone who offends you. Please notice also as an asylum said, did not say that we should not be offended because this is natural. Others have the option to say or do whatever they want, but we always retain our choice of how to respond. It is good to remember who told us this and who is that? Mohamed Salah. Now, he said in the Hadees famous Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim and anyone holding grudges Think about this. He said it is not permissible for a man to forsake his Muslim brother for more than three days, not permissible meaning haram to forsake your Muslim brother for more than three days, each of them
turning away from the other when they meet, the better of them is the one who gives the greeting of Salaam first. I repeat, it is not permissible for a man to forsake his Muslim brother for more than three days turning away each turning away from the other. When they meet the better of them is the one who gives the greeting of Salaam first. Finally the last and most important reminder also Lazarus alum told us
which is reported by Abdullah Namur Ilan Omar he narrated that nimisha Salim said the merciful are shown mercy by our rock man, be merciful on the earth and you will be shown merciful we will be shown mercy by the one who is above the heavens, the womb. Our RAM is named after our man. So whoever connected Allah connects him and whoever severs it, Allah severs him and this is in theory the I repeat Abdullah an hour in the eyes of Alon Omar he narrated that also as salaam said, The Merciful are shown mercy by a rock man, be merciful on the earth, and you will be shown mercy by the one who is above the heavens. The womb is named after Iran. So whoever connects it, Allah corrects
him and whoever severs it, Allah severs him and this is in tirmidhi ask Allah Subhana Allah Allahu to enable us to practice this beautiful Deen which is sent for us and to benefit from it in this world and the next robina is Allah nanfu sana Willem de fille on our handle an akuna Minal Cassidy Ravana atina dunya Hassan Otto Philip
