In Alhamdulillah, WA salatu salam ala Shafi lambier Allah Allah He was happy human when our bad, we are on the subject of being thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we are looking at the data said whether in shocker tamala g then knuckle is the one who is grateful to me for my boundaries, I will increase them hamdulillah we looked at many of the things that we need to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for
and every time I think of one of them, I think to myself that this surely has to be the biggest of the Namath of Allah subhanaw taala until I think of the next one, and that seems to be the bigger Nam and this is the beauty of the naramata Allah subhanaw taala that each one is complete in itself and each one is something which must make us go into sujood to thank Allah subhanaw taala that he gave us this now I want to remind myself knew about the one of the greatest Namath of Allah subhanho data.
We sometimes say that Eman is the biggest nemoto of Allah subhanaw taala inshallah it is, but there is an ally which is, in my view, even bigger than that, and that is the name of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala gave us the opportunity and gave us the permission and gave us the possibility of returning to him of Toba of making his default of asking his forgiveness. And Allah subhanaw taala promise to forgive the one who asked for his forgiveness sincerely.
Alex Mandela described himself as one of his attributes he said of our Pharaohs, vocabulary Tov, he said he is the one who forgives the sins, and he is the one who accepts Toba and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept our Toba is the greatest Namath of Allah subhanaw taala it is with our that somebody who has been a missionary all his life can come into Islam. And when he enters Islam, not only is he cleansed of every sin, every sin of his, but those sins turn into good deeds. And this is the the greatness of the greatest of all those who are great Rabbil alameen Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Jalla Jalla wa montevallo that he not only forgive sins, but he converts them into good deeds,
as he said and sort of work on and he said that he will convert the sins into good deeds provided a person makes Toba sincerely.
Now, the issue is that we have to understand and remember and remind ourselves that the conditions of Toba apply, and the first condition of Toba is genuine, genuine regret being contrived, and being regretful of having done whatever that we did, that we will never repeat this mistake that we made, number one, number two is to have a hatred for that action, which is a protection in itself, because we hate the action so much, that we will never go back to that action. And the third one condition of power is that we, if it is something which involves other people, then we redress the wrong that we did. And if we took away somebody's property, we return it, and so on and so forth. So these
three conditions of Toba are very important for us to keep in mind, it is not sufficient just to say sorry, and walk away, doesn't work like that. It's a matter of being genuinely regretful, of hating that deed and never going back to that again, and of redressing whatever wrong that we have done, if it is wrong of that nature, which requires redress of so therefore, we must be very clear in our minds, and not saying that, just because I now feel that what I did is wrong, that is sufficient. It's not sufficient, if you if the wrong involved maligning somebody slandering somebody speaking ill of somebody behind their back, then it is part of the Toba that you go to that person and
apologize and, and accept your mistake and said, I'm very sorry, this is what I did for you. And I will not do it anymore. And I apologize, make an apology and then ensure and make every effort to to undo the wrong that you did, which means that you go to the people that you spoke ill of this person and say I was the one who was like, that person is not like that. And I am sorry, I did that, and try to try our best to erase that. Because the the contrast of this is that if you don't do that, then on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will take our good deeds, and give it to that person and take their evil and put it on us. And this is obviously something that we don't want to
happen to any of us. So Toba is the one of the greatest nanobots and one of the greatest blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. And we need to make Toba and we need to make Toba frequently, we have the hottie Sana which Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam who said that I make Toba 70 times a day it was Rajiv that
Allah subhanaw taala is forgiven all his sins, and he makes so much Toba and say the eyes of Allah and asked him why is it that you cry so much? Why is it that you pray so much? And why is it that you stand in Salah until your feet are swollen because of the of the length of duration of your standing? And and he said, should I not be a grateful slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the issue of gratitude that we thank Allah subhanaw taala that he gave us this great name of Dawa and we ask Allah subhanaw taala always to give us a trophy to make Toba to accept our power, and to finally give us a trophy to make our before we die, to accept our power and to enter us into gender.
So for those who are aware it is up so that when we come to meet him that we are in a state which is worthy of meeting our a state of being clean for Salalah Highlander we'll carry while he was ibH mine dramatically.
