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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

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

Wa Salatu. Was Salam Allah, Colombia Allah Allah He was happy he, Allah.

00:00:14--> 00:00:28

Allah we will complete the series on the scale tarbiyah which began with Tosca beginner begins, auto begins at home, and then we Serbia begins with Toba.

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

I ended last week if I recall with

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

pointing out the fact that sort of Fatiha itself is Toba as

00:00:43--> 00:01:07

Laurie mentioned, and he said that when the slave asks Allah subhanho wa Taala for guidance, he says in a Serato, Mr. Kim or Allah guide me to the path of steadfastness, the path of righteousness, the path of all goodness, and therefore he is automatically making Toba against everything which is not righteous and everything which is not good.

00:01:09--> 00:01:42

And before he said he then as rotten rooster came, he established his connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. By saying, he aka Buddha canister in by saying Oh Allah, I worship only you and I asked help only from you. And this is the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Therefore give me what I am asking you and that is the thing to understand for us when we have this beautiful surah is tremendous resource that there is which is when we ask the Lord what Allah subhanaw taala we

00:01:43--> 00:02:20

we are establishing our connection with Allah before we ask Allah subhanaw taala for something and as I explained to you, psychologically, this is what we do. This is what we do, which in our relationships also to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is beyond the muscle we do not compare with Allah, but just for us to understand, we do this also in our regular relationships, before we go to somebody to ask for a favor, we establish our relationship, you are my relative, you are this you are that and therefore I have come to you, I have not just walked off the street, I'm not just a stranger walked into your office, I have some connection with you. And therefore I'm

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

asking you an ear canal boo. What

00:02:24--> 00:03:07

is reinforcing of this connection, I remind myself when you when we read solfatara in Salah, or we listen to certain Fatiha, which the mom is reading, let us go into that let us get the caveat of the surah into our lives. When we read when we hear this is let us try to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us that connection with her. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us that connection with the reality of that connection in sha Allah. And then we say, okay, we all like you guide us to the path of righteousness, and automatically we're making Dawa from everything which is not righteous, and which is not good. And then we say, reinforcing of

00:03:07--> 00:03:24

a hidden a Serato monster came, as I mentioned before, the meaning Why is the surah ends with a mystery, because we have asked for the path of righteousness. And that's the long and short of it. That's where it ends. However, to reinforce that to other things I've said sirata Lavina, and

00:03:25--> 00:04:10

all other parts of those who you blessed who the people who were on this path, therefore reinforcing that path of righteousness, but it's not righteousness as I may conceptualize not righteousness as somebody else may say, but of those specific people who you blessed, righteous according to the criterion of Allah subhanho wa Taala not righteous according to me and you may have we may have to have a lot of criteria by which we decide how righteous or whether somebody is righteous or not, or how righteous and whatnot, none of those criteria have any value as far as Islam is concerned. The only criterion which has value is the criterion which Allah subhanaw taala mentioned and that is

00:04:10--> 00:04:21

because in the end, only that is righteous, which is accepted as righteous by Allah subhanaw taala. So therefore, the only one to specify Yes, this is righteous, no, that is not righteousness, Allah.

00:04:22--> 00:05:00

I can decide it for myself. You can decide for yourself, somebody else cannot decide it for us. So we go by the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the sonoff is happy Mohammed Salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and therefore the path of righteousness. What is the slave saying that he's saying Allah guide me to the Sunnah Muhammad Rasul Allah Subhan Allah tala, because the number one of those who are righteous number one of those who received the aim of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rb ambia. And the number one of the Gambia is Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam and therefore when we say Allah guide me to the path of

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

The righteous we are asking specifically for guidance to the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So therefore what what is the slave doing when he's saying that he is making Toba from all actions, which constitute going away from the Sunnah he's making a Toba from all actions which constitute breaking the sun. He is making Toba from all actions, which are not according to or which are against the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he, when we say serata Lavina Nam tala him, this is what we are actually doing. So let us do that consciously not just recite this or accept some kind of mantra without understanding what we are saying consciously recite not just

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

the meaning the meaning behind the meaning

00:05:48--> 00:06:37

of righteous is to ask specifically for guidance to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to the beauty and, and and blessing of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu. So that we adopted, we adopted not just not like a burden, but we adopted very joyfully and we see it as a mark of our honor that we are last one Otello chose us to be honored as those who walk on the path of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what a tragedy if we do not recognize our own Honor, I mean, this is a terrible thing, how can you not do that right? Many times you find when when somebody from a good family, you know behaves in a in a

00:06:37--> 00:07:17

bad manner, people say you know, he comes from such a good family. Now, what what what behavior is this, you know, nobody in his family ever behaved like that, how come this person behaves like this, he comes from such a good illustrious family, we are known by our connections, we are known by our affiliations, we are known by where we come from, whether it is genetically chronologically, culturally, morally and so on and so forth. So what is a better connection? What is a better vasila? What is a better Silsila what is a better talaq than the talaq with Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam find me one person in the world who is alpha higher stature of a higher rank than

00:07:17--> 00:07:33

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as a Muslim, we know that there is no such thing. And therefore, this is what we are saying either a Serato Serato DJ Nan de la or LA Give me the path of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then further clarification

00:07:35--> 00:07:48

to be Allah him while a dolly Allah not the path of those who attracted your anger. And when the person is saying that he or she is making Toba from all those actions, which anger Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

it's not just a matter of

00:07:52--> 00:08:06

Jews and Christians. No, no, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala could have said Jews and Christians Allah subhanaw taala could have mentioned Yola, surah. Why does he have to say he's not speaking in riddles? He's not speaking in riddles for us to guess what is the meaning no.

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

When Allah says I will never do ballet. It includes everybody who does anything which angles Allah subhanaw taala whether that person is a Jew or a Christian or Muslim, or at least or whatever makes no difference. That is not the criteria. The criteria is does the does the person or did the person do something which angers Allah subhanho wa Taala, which attract the goddess Avalos, Renata, one of the only people who are misguided people who have gone to an extent, which is way beyond what they were justified in doing. Even though this may have been with a good intention. This is there are two major ways in which we get misguided one is by actually doing things which are haram by actually

00:08:49--> 00:09:11

doing things which are which indicate rebelliousness against Allah subhanho wa Taala, denying Allah subhanaw taala himself or denying the fire and so on and so forth. That's one way in which we, which in which we commit major sins, we ask Allah to protect us from that. Another way in which we commit major sins is where shaitan persuades us that actually that deed is a good deed.

00:09:12--> 00:09:20

And usually this refers to giving respect or doing things like that. And this we do with the feeling that somehow we're doing something good.

00:09:21--> 00:09:58

So, we now take people and positions and we raise them to a level where it becomes, it becomes and we introduce all forms of actions which we consider to be good in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala would become without and so on. So misguidance can be disguised misguidance can be disguised in the garments of guidance. So it is very important, how do you know what is guidance and what is guidance through knowledge? And that is the reason why lm is required. Why that's why knowledge is required. We need to study this deep so that we have the right criteria to judge what is right and separated from what is not right.

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

Rather than just as

00:10:02--> 00:10:13

there are some conditions of Hera, when we ask when we make Toba, there are some conditions of HIPAA, HIPAA, and HIPAA, the perfect guidance to silica was 13 cannot be,

00:10:14--> 00:11:02

cannot be attained with indifference to sin or persistence in sin. There is one of the reasons for Sewol katiba. bad ending is israr almasi is to insist on sin, we commit something, and we continue to do that over and over and over, even though we know it is wrong, please understand, there is a difference between a sin and a mistake. A mistake is the same thing. It's exactly the same thing in terms of its content. The difference is in the intention, a mistake is something that happens, unknowingly. I didn't understand I just did that it was a mistake. But when I do exactly the same thing, knowingly, it becomes a sin.

00:11:03--> 00:11:45

If I'm sitting in front of my father, if I'm sitting in front of one of my elders, my teachers and so on, and when I get up, if so happens accidentally, my foot touches the teacher, my foot touches my father, it is a mistake. I still apologize. I say I say I say I'm extremely sorry, I did not meet and mean anything disrespectful. He understand I understand no problem. Right? But the same foot if I go and stand there, and I kick him is still the same foot touching the same person. But there is a way the world of difference. I just went and killed my father and how intelligent is that? Right? That is the difference between is between committing a sin unknowingly and insisting on that said,

00:11:45--> 00:12:00

we know something is wrong, but we still do it and we give some explanation for it. Oh, but it's a small sin. Please understand, small sins are repeated become major sins, major sins repeated become Cofer and denial of Allah subhana wa Taala zakka.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

We are on an escalating,

00:12:04--> 00:12:46

escalating route. And therefore it is the as I explained earlier, the mark of a Mata Ki is that he does not get involved in the argument of whether this is a small one or a big one. He is conscious of the fact that every sin whether it is small or big is disobedience of Allah who is big, Allah is not small, therefore any disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala is big. Any breaking of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is big, because we just asked for guidance on the path of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam and then we go and do something which is not the path of Mohamed Salah Salah. Now, I don't want to sit there and say what I think it is you decide right. So, therefore, the

00:12:46--> 00:13:30

condition of it is to be immediately contracts to be immediately regretful of what we have done to insisting on sin delay in Toba is something which is detrimental to the ACA. So let us be very clear about that. So let me give you an assignment as I give you from time to time, and that assignment is when you go home today, list all the ways in which you disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala that I will do it and you will do it as well. Let us list a make a list of all the ways in which we disobey Allah subhanaw taala minimum first requirement is at least don't deny the fact that you are committing a sin. Because if you deny the fact that you are committing a sin, then you have no hope

00:13:30--> 00:14:13

at all of correcting that at least own up and accept that shaving your beard is haram, that shaving your beard is going against the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. You still want to do it, do it but at least acknowledge it write down and say Oh Allah, save me from the sin. Save me from wiping out the sign of your nappy from my face every morning. At least acknowledge it. Don't do that. Don't do not be unjust to yourself. Because if you deny, if you accept Yes, I am doing wrong, then of course there is every hope in the world that one day inshallah the penny will drop. And then you will stop doing something which is wrong. I'm just giving you one example. Because for some for

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

some reason, all the beautiful ones are sitting in front of me today.

00:14:18--> 00:14:23

You should hide if you don't want me to say all these things should be on a pillow or a pillow or something.

00:14:24--> 00:14:59

So the point is that make a list of what you do wrong. lying and cheating and this and that and whatnot and cursing and Allah knows best right? So make a list of all the things that you do wrong and then make sense your power. Now conditions of power are for number one, be sincerely contrite and regretful number two, hate the sin and never return to it. Three asked the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And for if it is, if the action is of a nature where you violated somebody's rights, then go and

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

make up for that. Go and reimburse that person. It is not okay to swallow somebody whose land or building and then say all I'm very sorry, you are sorry the other guy. Sorry. Right? So that doesn't work. What you did you have to undo if you slandered somebody go and apologize to that person, no matter how embarrassing it is, it will be far more embarrassing on the Day of Judgment, let me assure you, right, so don't do that. If you have done anything wrong, if it if it is something which impacted somebody else, go and make it right with that person. You go and apologize to that person that was go to hell, I don't forgive you, then the issue is not with you, you did your best, right,

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

but go and do it properly. Right? Don't go and

00:15:42--> 00:15:59

apologize as if you are doing a favor to the person by coming in apologizing, right. So be contrite grovel, you know fall at his feet or something. But anyway, we make sure that it is quite clear that you are conscious of what you have done and you are genuinely regretful about that and that you will

00:16:01--> 00:16:14

you will not repeat that in future. So for conditions, Allah subhanaw taala told us very very clearly about these things in many of the Quran. For example, Allah subhanaw taala said in Serato Tarin

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

00:16:21--> 00:16:21

Allah

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

illallah wa Hito what and so

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

on? Why would you feel?

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

Yo, yo,

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

yo,

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

Bobby Imani him.

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

Alisha Cuddy

00:17:00--> 00:17:05

describing the scene on the Day of Judgment, and he says, Oh, you believe too will allow you to

00:17:06--> 00:17:31

turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. With sincere repentance. It may be that your app will forgive your sins and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow We ask Allah subhanaw taala to do this for us to forgive our sins, and to enter into His Jannah the day that Allah will not disgrace His Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he will not disgrace those who believe with him.

00:17:32--> 00:17:50

The guarantee of not being disgraced on the Day of Judgment. Please understand, see the ayat of the Quran. Allah, Allah in this particular case did not say Allah will not discourage those who do write. Allah did not say Allah will not disgrace those who believe in Allah. Allah did not did not say Allah will not disgrace those who have his Quran.

00:17:51--> 00:17:56

Allah says Allah will not disgrace His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and those who believe within

00:17:58--> 00:18:04

the condition the relationship with our talaq with Mohammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allah He was Abu Salah.

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

So please consider that when you make friends with Gillette in the morning.

00:18:13--> 00:18:22

And then Allah subhanaw taala said, What will happen to these people who Allah will forgive and not disgrace, Allah said their light will run forward before them.

00:18:24--> 00:19:08

The Muslim in the momineen will emanate light, their light, they will emanate light and the light will run before them it will illuminate their paths on a day when there will be no illumination except illumination Allah subhanaw taala provides and they will believe the Allah will not dismiss them will not disgrace the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and those who believe with him, their light will run forward before them and with their record books in their right hands. They will say our rub keep perfect our light, do not put it off till we cross the Surat till we cross the bridge safely and grant us forgiveness. Verily you are able to do all things. My brother and sister time to make

00:19:08--> 00:19:19

choices. Time to choose where we want to be the time to make a choice will end when we see them alike, when the door will close when the other door will open.

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

Until then we have a time and I asked you in the name of Allah make the right choices. You and I will not be able to say that I did not know how to choose. Please get this out of your mind. That is not an excuse. Ignorance is not a defense in law. And neither is a defense in Islam. It is our job to find out the message has been sent. The messenger has been sent. The reminders come to us week after week, day after day. If you still want to deny then Believe me, the owners of that denial is squarely on our shoulders and on top of our heads. We will not be able to

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

To escape from that responsibility by saying, I did not know.

00:20:05--> 00:20:15

That is the one side of the story, the other side of the story. Imagine this, imagine this in this dunya whatever you are, maybe we live in a palace of gold I don't think you do. But anyway you let's imagine

00:20:17--> 00:20:36

we're on the Day of Judgment, which would you choose to live in a pallet of pallets of gold and we'd be in darkness on the day of judgment or to be in on the Day of Judgment among those whose light will emanate before them and they will follow Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam across the Sahara and into Jonathan for those who don't.

00:20:37--> 00:20:56

Where would you like to be? I make data Allah subhanaw taala put you in a second group. And we you and I all follow the solar solar cell into the into the into general for those who Allah without disturbing Charla but we have to make some effort for that might Why is not enough. Nobody's wise enough. With the DA has to come some power.

00:20:57--> 00:21:19

Some medicine, some effort. That's important. Do I don't doesn't work. Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned those whose Toba is accepted, and those whose Toba is not accepted. In Surah Nisa, Allah subhanaw taala talked about those whose Toba is accepted. And he said such Allah Allahu inamoto was La la la la la Vina Rama Luna so Avi gehalten

00:21:20--> 00:22:06

una amin Caribe La la la la, la la hora de man hakima. Allah, Allah subhanaw taala accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent immediately afterwards, it is the to whom Allah will forgive, and allies ever all know and all wise as I mentioned, the difference between a mistake and said very clearly the Quran specifies that what is a mistake, which is what when you forgive something you do without knowledge, something you do in a passion, you are angry, you know it is wrong, but you said something or you do it you know it is wrong, but you did something, moment of weakness, whatever it was, but sharpest condition is what immediately make

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

over.

00:22:08--> 00:22:25

immediately make over not wait not delay, definitely not repeat. The moment you start repeating the nature of the thing changes. It is no longer a mistake. It is no longer a mistake. Now you're doing it deliberately, no longer a mistake.

00:22:26--> 00:22:57

So therefore different rules apply. And what are those rules? Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the next I have the same Surah Surah Nisa is 17 and 18. Allah subhanaw taala said, we're laser Titova to and there is no tower for them. We're laser tetovo to levena Yama, Luna sejati had his ah ha da ha de humo mode in the two to one and levena Yamato una home Kufa Ooh La, La La home, Lima

00:22:59--> 00:23:11

and no and have no effect. There is no Toba. There is no of no use is the repentance of those who continue to do evil until death faces then

00:23:13--> 00:23:34

they continue with that evil whatever they were doing. They continue that until now they are standing in front of molekule mouth. And then he says in the Quran, he said I make Toba now, not accepted, not accepted. Very clearly. No use is Toba like this, which is made once the vibe has become visible.

00:23:36--> 00:24:14

So Toba has to be made before that. So no, no use is the top of those who continue to do evil until death phase is one of them. And then he says, Now I repent. And neither is the Toba of those who die while they were disbelievers. These are two people whose data is not accepted. Somebody who makes Dawa at the last minute or somebody who just died without taba, without anything died as a disbeliever. There is no forgiveness for them. And the last one that I said for them, we have prepared a painful torment. ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from that.

00:24:15--> 00:24:15

Just

00:24:16--> 00:24:51

do not pick and choose. As I've said many times before, selective obedience is actually disobedience. You are picking what you want to what you will obey. Therefore automatically you are also picking what you are choosing to disobey. So therefore now the nature of your disobedience became something else, which is a crime. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this in Surah Baqarah Allah subhanaw taala said see the eye the eye of the Quran, there is nothing ambiguous. Everything has been given clearly so that there is no excuse for somebody to say well, you know, I didn't understand it wasn't clear, very clear.

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

baccara number 85 Allah said to me, Luna Viva el kita Viva La coruna Viva

00:25:24--> 00:25:25

Allah said

00:25:27--> 00:26:06

that you believe in a part of the book and reject the rest. Alpha two alpha two Muna be barrel kitabi otaku nahi back, do you believe in one piece of the work and you leave the rest? Or you leave you leave there the other part of the book, what is your attitude? And I say Do you believe in a part of the Scripture the book and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense what is the reward for those of you who do this except his Yun Phil has dunia disgrace in this life. Please understand the effect of disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala is not only the afra

00:26:07--> 00:26:11

our Amal decide the kind of life we are going to have.

00:26:12--> 00:26:30

If you choose a life of disobedience, then become prepared for a life of great hardship, a life of dishonor, a life of lack of safety and lack a lack of security, because you are taking on to fight against the only one who decides anything. And that is Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

To do it with your eyes open, right?

00:26:35--> 00:26:57

And much better, of course, don't do it. So I'll say, what is the recompense for those who choose to believe in something and live out the rest? Allah says for them there is nothing except disgrace in the life of this world. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will be consigned to the most grievous torment, and Allah is not unaware of what you do.

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

And then Allah subhanaw taala.

00:27:05--> 00:27:37

The next is 86. Allah subhanaw taala said, they are those These are the people who pick and choose, they are those who bought who purchased the life of this world at the price of the hereafter. What does what an amazingly stupid bargain is that? You buy something which is perishable, for which you are paying with something which is forever? Why would you do that? Why would you do something which you have to leave behind no matter what.

00:27:39--> 00:27:40

No matter what,

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

no matter what you had,

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

it's something that you will leave behind.

00:27:50--> 00:28:00

If kings did not go with their palaces, you and I are not going to go with what we have. How many generations does it take to understand this very simple thing?

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

How many generations decal

00:28:05--> 00:28:21

and Alessandra saying that these are the people who who pick and choose innovations, they are the people who chose and who bought the life of this world at the price of the Hereafter, and their torment shall not be lightened, nor will they be helped.

00:28:23--> 00:28:37

They will not be helped. We ask Allah to save us from being among such people. We ask Allah to open our hearts and to enable us to make Toba and to guide us to the path and to stick on that path until our last day. Now for those who refuse to repent Allah.

00:28:39--> 00:28:46

Allah subhanaw taala said follow Amara Zuma leuke Ravi Fatah Hannah la Hema Baba Cooley she had

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

to be my

00:28:54--> 00:29:42

own. Allah subhanaw taala said and this refers to people who disobey who are doing haram and they refuse to change and they continue in that and because they find that they are able to do that with impunity. They feel that they are not doing anything wrong. Please understand, if a thief is stealing, if say for example, somebody is cooking up his taxes, and he is submitting false tax returns. The fact that he or she has not been caught for the last 10 years does not now confer on them the right to submit such tax returns a mistake or a sin which goes unpunished does not confer on that person, the right to commit that sin.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

When the person will be punished depends on wherever the authorities take cognizance of the fact that this person was committing a sin. That may happen immediately. It may happen after a time but the action does not become your right action does not become right

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

And that's exactly what I was saying the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala saying that when these people who people who commit sin, and they have been warned, and they've been told, but they continue over and over and over, then what does Allah subhanaw taala say, Please notice the Kalam of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah did not say I will grab them, I will immediately punish them, I will strike I will, I will put send a bolt of lightning to strike them on the back of the next note, Allah subhanaw taala said when they continue, and when they forget all that they had been told to take to heart with through open to them, the gates of all good things.

00:30:40--> 00:30:40

Imagine

00:30:42--> 00:30:57

the person who's designing a lot. So what is happening to him now. His business is growing, his popularity is booming, he is getting this honor and that honor, and he's getting more money, and he's getting more influence, and he's getting more power and more authority. Sounds strange.

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

Why would Allah want to do that?

00:31:02--> 00:31:13

Because the doors of Hidayat have been closed for them. And then Allah subhanaw taala said, until even as they were rejoicing in what they had been granted, we suddenly take them to task.

00:31:16--> 00:31:19

Suddenly, McCormack comes and says, time do

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

when you got to go, you got to go.

00:31:23--> 00:31:33

Right? And then they were broken in spirit, then they will try to run and hide here and there. What can I do? Where can I go? You can't do anything. You can't go anywhere.

00:31:34--> 00:32:12

The time to do something else, and the time to go somewhere else. long gone. long gone. Somebody came to remember shafa to lolly and asked this question. They said yeah, ma'am. We see you say that good deeds beget good lives and bad deeds beget bad lives. But we see that this is not true. In reality. We see that people who commit sins that they are growing, that their businesses are growing. They're growing a business based on haram Allah subhanaw taala made interest Haram, but they are borrowing and their businesses are growing and have more and more debt on their hands and so on and so forth. Nothing is nothing bad is happening to them.

00:32:14--> 00:32:52

You say gambling is haram. You say alcohol is haram. You say this is haram lying and cheating. But we find that people are not only lying and cheating, they have taken lying and cheating to finance where now they not only lie and cheat, but they speak with great pride about how they were able to do this person or that person, how they were able to do this great deal by depriving somebody else of his or her rights. They speak about this with great pride. They don't hide it anymore. Corruption is not something that we hide anymore. Corruption is something that we wear on our sleeve, the more corrupt I am, the bigger I am the more honor I have in this upside down world that we live in. It's

00:32:52--> 00:32:58

not something that I need to be ashamed about. It's something that I am proud of that I am so corrupt in it live in LA Rajan

00:33:01--> 00:33:11

was told he was asked this question that we these are the kinds of people we say that all kinds of disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala they do, but nothing bad is happening to them. They are, you know,

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

out of our pool. They are fruiting and flowering.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

So what do you want me to say?

00:33:21--> 00:33:30

You know, a shout out to lolly recited this ayah of Surah Al Anam Ayah number 44 you know I'm selfish I did not read desire of the Quran

00:33:32--> 00:33:49

he said that is happening to them and that is a sign that perhaps the doors of hidayah have been closed for them my brother sister I'm not saying this Jews are now you can go and point fingers at people and say door have either had been closed for you know that's not the purpose. Right? It's for us to look at ourselves

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

is for us to look at ourselves.

00:33:54--> 00:34:02

In the wild west we had these gun fighters used to shoot from the hip. Today we have gun fighters who shoot from the hip

00:34:05--> 00:34:15

you are this you are that I tell people forget about you look at yourself. Look at the Allies not gonna ask your opinion what to do with whoever it is right? Forget that look at yourself and say where am I on this scale.

00:34:20--> 00:34:34

So, if very simple were to understand, if you find that somebody in in in the world in in islamically speaking in the in the according to the book of Allah subhanaw taala success and failure is not measured by material success or failure.

00:34:35--> 00:34:53

It's not measured by health or wealth or influence and so on. And so, you have to take into account another factor which is that is this health and wealth despite disobedience of Allah or after the person is also obedient to Allah.

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

If the health and wealth is after the person is open,

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

bedient to Allah subhana wa tada then you have the,

00:35:04--> 00:35:08

the role model, and you have the picture of somebody like solimar la sala

00:35:12--> 00:35:13

great wealth and kingdom and influence.

00:35:15--> 00:35:18

But they were the envy of Allah subhanaw taala they did not disobey Allah.

00:35:20--> 00:35:52

But if you have health and wealth, and you still have disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala then you have the model of fear or shadow hammer, you have kingdoms, but you have disobedience. And Allah subhanaw taala told us the stories in the Quran, not because it's a book of entertainment, nice stories, bedtime stories, because we understand Allah subhanaw taala described the people and he described what happened to them their endings.

00:35:53--> 00:35:57

Why, so that we can look at ourselves and say, Where am I on this?

00:35:59--> 00:36:23

There is nothing wrong in seeking wealth. There is nothing wrong in asking Allah for wealth. There is nothing wrong in making love or wealth or making effort for wealth. There is nothing romantic or cute about poverty. Please understand this very clearly. There's nothing great about poverty. There's nothing great about being in a state where you are asking other people for help.

00:36:27--> 00:36:38

You should be wealthy, you should be strong, you should be influential. Allah subhanaw taala sent us to be role models to the world. Here a beggar on the street is a role model to nobody.

00:36:39--> 00:36:40

There's nothing romantic about that.

00:36:42--> 00:36:51

Islam does not prevent us from doing that. Islam strongly encourages us to become very influential, very wealthy, but Islam shows us the way to do it.

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

The way to do it all kinds of ways of becoming wealthy and influential are not okay.

00:37:01--> 00:37:10

And that is what we need to check not whether I have wealth or not, how did I get it? Where am I spending it? Not whether I have influence or not? How did I get it? Where am I using it.

00:37:13--> 00:37:18

And that is what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us again and again, in the Quran, my brothers and sisters.

00:37:20--> 00:37:30

How enough's guy misguided that Miss guides us and digs us into all kinds of directions. And the shaitan Miss Miss guides us and takes us into all kinds of

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

places, but do understand that at the end, the responsibility is on us.

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

The guy who invented the mouse died yesterday, but the mouse is alive and well.

00:37:44--> 00:38:01

And that mouse is in your hand. And that mouse is what takes the cursor to the website, which opens the page. And you see what you see and you read what you read. So you cannot blame it on the guy who invented the mouse. You cannot blame it on cheetah. You cannot even blame it on the guy who created the website.

00:38:03--> 00:38:09

The responsibility is on that is on the shoulders of the guy in whose hand is the mouse.

00:38:10--> 00:38:21

So please let us be very, very clear that we have to be we have to save ourselves because shaitaan will not leave as with any avenue of escape.

00:38:23--> 00:38:29

And lots of anatella mentioned those who acknowledge their sins and who make Dawa and see that Ahava last minute Allah

00:38:30--> 00:38:36

Allah tala Tara Tara Tara forbiden obey Him, Allah to Allah and Solomon

00:38:38--> 00:39:18

La Jolla to LA him in a la la foto Rahim Allah said and there are others who have acknowledged their sins, but and they have mixed deeds. There is a bad deed and a good deed. But Allah subhanho wa Taala will turn unto them with forgiveness. And surely Allah is oft forgiving, Most Merciful. This insha Allah includes us all, where we make mistakes, but we don't insist on those mistakes. We don't repeat those mistakes. We don't insist that the mistake is not a mistake, we make a mistake and we immediately make our and then we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us, as he promised. What do you say my brothers and sisters, about Allah subhanho wa Taala who said the following with regard to his

00:39:18--> 00:39:35

forgiveness, one of the most beautiful Ayat of the Quran from Soto Zuma, where Allah subhanaw taala said, julio de la nostra vusi him la taco natto Mira Mattila in La Jolla v Rosano by Jamia in

00:39:38--> 00:39:39

Rahim.

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

Allah, oh my bad, my slaves who have transgressed against themselves. Remember when we are sitting when we are disobeying Allah, we don't have Allah. It is against ourselves. So Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh, my slaves who have transgressed amongst themselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah.

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all sins Yuk ferodo Nova Jamia and

00:40:06--> 00:40:19

they no longer for him truly he is a forgiving and most merciful be who What do you say about a rub? who encourages us by saying this, that there is no Cinderella will not forgive

00:40:20--> 00:41:06

anyone who denies the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala has denied this and many other Ayat of the Quran, and they should be careful when they say if they say something like that. despair is haram. despair from the mercy of Allah is haram. It's a denial of the Quran. No sin is unforgivable, every single sin Allah subhanaw taala forgives the worst of sins, which is the worst of sins schilke. In the Shaka, lagoon azeem Allah said the worst of sins is checked, but even check Allah will forgive provided we asked forgiveness. If we die on Shark then there is a problem. If we die on cover, then there's a problem. But while a person is alive, a person can be committing for his whole

00:41:06--> 00:41:27

life, he can be worshipping other than Allah subhanho wa Taala for his whole life, he can be denying Allah subhanaw taala for his own life, he can be committing every kind of sin, but before he or she dies, if they make Toba, Allah subhanaw taala has promised to forgive them and the promises of Allah is true. The only catch in this game is that we don't know when that when that death will come.

00:41:29--> 00:41:43

That is the problem. That's why we must make Toba immediately. And finally, one of the most beautiful out of the Quran. What does Allah subhanaw taala do with the sins that he forgives? Imagine? How do we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala what kind of rub is this? Allah

00:41:45--> 00:41:49

11 de la de la Milan Sala Han Pharaoh,

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

Rahim.

00:41:59--> 00:42:10

Allah accept those who repent and believe in Islam and do righteous deeds for those Allah subhanho wa Taala will change their sins into good deeds.

00:42:12--> 00:42:26

Imagine one is to forgive the sins slate is wiped clean. You start from zero. The second The other is Allah is not wiping the slate clean is wiping the slate clean only with regard to the sins and then those sins are converted into good deeds. You actually get Hazara for that.

00:42:28--> 00:43:14

As you see the mercy of Allah, how do you thank Allah subhanaw taala for this and allies off forgiving, Most Merciful, my brothers and sisters, what can we say about whose Mercy is such that he not only forgives sins, but converts the sins into good deeds, and for the one who makes sincere Toba? So let us take the first step without any delay and ask for Allah subhanho wa Taala has helped let us make Toba And right now, yes, we already shall make Toba right now and ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to be obedient to Him from now onwards till the last breath in our bodies do not worry about the approval of this or that the approval of he or she the approval of anyone, none of

00:43:14--> 00:43:19

them are going to be coming with you into your cover, if you believe they are going to come into your cupboard

00:43:21--> 00:44:00

right nobody will come they will all be where they are we go alone and we stand before all alone. So let us not fall into a trap where we are doing this or that in order to please this one or that one. Let us not do that. Let us do that which is right and we know what is right and that is obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and following the Sunnah. Hamad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu wa sallam have 11 sisters, ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for us. We are coming into the month of Ramadan, ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us Ramadan in good health in perfect health and good strength, that we should be able to take full advantage of this blessed month. The month comes

00:44:00--> 00:44:23

with a lot of promise. But the promise is only for those who take advantage of that promise. Otherwise, the month will come and go and we will be left bereft and we ask Allah to save us from that and to save us from not being able to take advantage of the blessing of this great month of Ramadan. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to for I ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive all your sins, ask Allah subhanaw taala to enter you into Jonathan for those who

00:44:24--> 00:44:42

ask Allah subhanaw taala to remove you from all kinds of difficulties in this life. And the next ask Allah subhanaw taala to make you among the among among the Almighty. Allah Allah Allah, Allah, who Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with on the day of judgment was Allah Allah Allah will carry while he was a Vegemite, Rama Rama Rama
