scholarone Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Silla film ba when will study Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman, Kathira and cathedra from Abbado, my brothers and sisters you know lesson on the sceptre knifes we continue with the
remainder to make this the foreign power
let me remind myself and you that this is the beginning of everything good.
It begins with owning up and accepting that I need to change
it is difficult, it is not easy.
But remember remaining in a state where we have a filthy heart where the enough's has not been cleaned is even more difficult. Because we are not looking at difficulty as in whatever momentary
shocks to our ego that we might face. If we accept that we need to change that we need to change. We are talking about difficulty before Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment because Allah subhanaw taala said, your money and your children will not benefit you on the Day of Judgment. The person who would be benefited the person who would be successful is the one who comes to Allah with Coleman Saleem
he Lamin at Allah with Calvin Sally, except the one who comes to Allah subhanaw taala with Calvin sorry, Calvin Salim is a pure heart is the heart which has been which for which the scan has been done. So the schedule knifes is not a
option, it is not something that we can choose to do or not to do.
It's something which is absolutely critical for us.
And as I always remind myself, we do not know when we will be called before Allah subhanaw taala so the first thing to do is instantly immediately as you listen to me right now for me and you to make the near to change to beg Allah subhanaw taala to help us and to accept I need to change and I make the need to change right now as I'm sitting here.
So inshallah even if I dropped it in the next one minute, at least I have made the need to change I have made the near to make is different though and Allah subhanaw taala is merciful and we expect and we rely on His mercy to forgive us. Then we immediately make the far Allah Mandara Villa Hotlanta halacha anyone up to one Allah hottie Kovarik muster todos we come in Cherie Masato like I've been able to galley or move with them before clearly when the hula Rosano violent. Say that is the far go on Google. Go on YouTube and find it. It's called say you will is tougher, and you will find the text and you will find the recitation, please memorize this. One of the many benefits of
this Surah Surah Salam said the one who decides these three times before he goes to bed, if he dies in the night, you will be resurrected with the shahada, you will be in the shade and the one who decides this three times in the morning and he dies during the day, he will be or she will be in the the origin of the shahada, that person will be considered to have been to have died as it Shahid feasts of ILA. So basically, so at least do that much and let us make this part of our it is part of our money and
evening a scar. So let us memorize this say you do is to say you do Stefan,
Allah subhanaw taala hurry. Now we live in a shutdown rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Yeah, you are living Armano tubo in Allah He told Matana Suha Arsa rabuka I Yuka Farah uncom sejati como Hirakud Jana in touch with him in the hall and Haru Yo Ma la yo Zilla who Nabil our living on Omar who nor whom he has been ID him will be Imani him Yakko Nora BANA to me milaana Nora Baba fear Lana in Naga Allah kulesza In a deer
and Sonata Rivas Mata says, Oh, you live turned to Allah subhanaw taala with sincere repentance. It may be that you're Rob geladeira who will forgive your sins and admit you into Gardens under which reverse flow which is done, the day that Allah subhanaw taala will not disgrace His Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and those who believe with him.
Their light their light, Allah did not say a light will shine on them. We will we ask Allah to include us among them. We will emanate light, light will run their light will run forward before them and with their record books of deeds in the right hand, they will say
Oh our app, please perfect and keep our light perfect for us and do not put it off till we cross over the Siraj safely and grant us forgiveness. Verily you are able to do all things. I mean, yeah, but we ask Allah subhanaw taala for this, everyone sisters, all of this will happen provided we
join that group of people who are the true followers of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, not the people who are sitting on our fence and one day they are this way the next day they are another way, not people who are constantly looking for excuses to disobey Allah and to disobey Allah salaam, not people who are fatwa shopping, trying to make Halal what they know is haram. Not people who are saying what shaitan said to Allah subhana wa catani Give me time.
We are not people who are saying give me time. I'm involved in some haram let me continue the haram for some more time. And in the future, sometime I will get out of it or I will make our No. This is for people who as soon as they realize that they have been wrong, they immediately correct themselves without any delay. Now that is the most important thing. Now let us see whose Toba is accepted what develops? Mahallesi in Surah Nisa 11 Artel is it in nama Toba to Allah He Lilla Dena Yama, Luna su vija Hala tin some Maya to Boon Amin curry for hula aka to Allah Allah him Baka Allahu Allah even Akiva. Allah said, Allah subhanaw taala accepts only the repentance of those who do evil
in ignorance and foolishness. So one is ignorance. One is maybe they knew what they were doing was wrong, but for whatever reason, because of their own foolishness, because they
succumb to peer pressure, because of various things, they continue to do it. But they repent soon afterwards, it is their to whom Allah will it is their who Allah will forgive. And Allah subhanaw taala is ever the all knower and the all wise.
And then Allah subhanaw taala said, whose Toba is not accepted. Well, I said the Toba to Levina Yama, Luna say it had either haidara had the humble mo to call in to
what a Latina yamu tuna we're home Kufa, hola Ekaterina home other bun Alima.
Now in this, these two is 1718 of Surah Nisa lacinato mentioned in the first hire, the, what kind of Dawa is accepted and the second is what kind of what is not accepted. Now not accepted, Allah said and have no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil,
evil deeds until death phases one of them and he says, now I repent. Now in need to learn the tool now I repent
for the level, nor for those who die while they are disbelievers, if you die in a state of disbelief, the door of Jehovah is closed. For them, we have prepared a painful torment. Now, the thing I want to remind myself a new is, it is very, very clear
that first and foremost,
what is very clear is that no matter what we did,
as long as we have life, and as long as we make is the foreign Toba as long as we make we repent and returned towards Allah subhanaw taala no matter what we did, it will be forgiven inshallah. This is something that is a absolute beacon of hope for all those who are sincere, right, so no matter whatever it was, the worst thing that could have been done this ship is to join partners with Allah subhanaw taala even if you did that, even if you were a butchery even if you had been worshipping idols, all your life, at any point in time you have the opportunity to turn away from that and to worship your Creator, my Creator, Allah subhanaw taala there is no
time limit on this.
Exam does not say that if you have been worshipping idols for so many years now you can't turn back No whatever the number of years. You can, you can always turn back number one. Number two, if what you did
harm somebody else, then there is a precondition to you being forgiven by Allah subhanaw taala, which is that you seek the forgiveness of the person that you harmed.
Right, seek their partner and
Then seek the partner of Allah subhanaw taala. If the other person person does not pardon you, despite your seeking their pardon, and that is on them, which is not your fault. However, do understand when you go to seek pardon, be contrite, be humble. Don't try to justify what you did. And don't go and seek pardon as if you are doing a favor to them. But also remember that depending on what it is unit to the other person, supposing you had materially harmed them, meaning if they had some land, you swallowed it, if they had a house, you swallowed it, if you did something, harm to them some harm to them, which is material in terms of wealth and so on. Then before you seek
pardon at the time of seeking pardon, you must restore to them whatever you took from them. And that is important without that Allah Samantha will not forgive you so you have to restore to them compensate for them. The Saba as an Amazon seller, this is Allah What if the person that we wronged is no longer there is died or you know,
he's not alive, Mr. Sampson, give it to his heirs.
Whoever are the heirs of those people? They asked him May Allah bless them for the questions they asked because that's how we have been, they asked him What if the person is gone, we don't know where they are.
So we don't know where they are, we don't know who their heirs are, we have no way of finding out now what do we do? Now we set them set them make is their fault Allah subhanaw taala and give a lot of sadhaka in the path of Allah.
So whatever amount you owe them that and more give it as as Sokka keep on leaving South Africa in the path of Allah subhanaw taala and seek Allah's forgiveness. So Allah will forgive so inshallah this is something to hold on to very tightly there is nothing that Allah subhanaw taala will not forgive Allah Subhana Allah is Rama Rahim. There is no limit to his forgiveness in his mercy number one, number two
is different Oba must be done as soon as we realize that something is wrong, but that we have been doing something wrong that that is the very, very
critical thing Allah said min curry immediately, as soon as we realize that something is wrong is this far and Dawa must be done? Right? Not wait until not wait for you know longer and longer and continue to do what you are doing. Without seeking the pardon of Allah subhanaw taala this is this is
this this invites trouble. So immediately as soon as you realize I've been doing wrong immediately, Mr. Foreign, though, so that is the second important thing. And the third thing is that never return to whatever was wrong. So you were doing something wrong. You sought the path, pardon of Allah subhanaw taala you ask Allah to forgive you. And then you go and do that thing again. No.
Don't go back to that thing. Do not go back to that thing, no matter what.
And the worst case scenario, despite all this, despite your best intentions, you did fall into that same thing again, then don't lose hope in the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala even though they don't say oh my god, I I asked forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala then I did it again. Now Allah won't forgive me. No, Allah will forgive you Inshallah, no matter how many times you do the wrong, Allah will forgive you. But remember, if you do the wrong knowingly, right, and saying, oh, but you see, Allah will forgive me. That's a different thing, then that is rebellion. IV here we are not talking about that. Here. We're saying that you knew it was wrong. You did it. You used to do it.
You left it, you made this foreign Toba then suddenly, somehow it happened again, that's a different situation. But knowing it is wrong, you left it and then you go back to it and you say no, but you say Allah will forgive me no matter how many times they do wrong. That is to challenge Allah subhanaw taala that is rebellion. And may Allah protect us from that I don't say Allah will for your work for you, but it is a dangerous thing to do. So please, let us stay far away from that.
Anyone must have value. The most basic and fundamental fact of life
is that final success is to be admitted into Jannah and to be protected from the fire.
omens, famine Zuzia and Inari vo killer Jonatha pocket verse, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that very clearly the one who has been saved from the hellfire and entered into Jannah this person is the only person with success. So anything that interferes with that
is not worth doing. No matter how profitable beneficial you know, dutiful it might seem to be in this life. Please understand that sins always look nice
sins that other people do, why do they do why do I die? Why does anybody commit a sin because it is nice. They either enjoy doing that or they expect something good to come out of it. Right somebody is taking an interest based loan why? Because they expect something good to happen.
If I take this loan, I will increase my business this will happen
Lebanon I can buy my house or I can you can save a house will be mine, I will be safe. How can you be safe when you have signed a form? Making yourself an enemy of Allah?
Is the house going to keep you safe? Or is Allah going to keep you safe? Just think right? Just think.
So similarly for anything else. So immediate benefit, the sin seems to give us immediate benefit. But you know, I know that emotional maturity and intelligence consists of postponing gratification.
You give up immediate benefit for future benefits. That is a sign of intelligence not to run behind immediate benefits to the detriment of future benefit. And in this case, believe me, it's not just future benefit, that future is a never ending future
is not to say okay, well you know, I'm giving up some future benefit after a couple of years I'd be fine no, that is
So, what sense does it make that I do something in this life which gives me some immediate benefit in German whatever it is, at the cost of incurring the anger of Allah subhanaw taala and incurring his punishment which will never go away
you know, many times people when somebody dies especially if they have been suffering some disease ailment something we will say Oh at least is suffering is over. But remember whether the suffering is over, or whether the suffering is starting now never to be over depends not on the illness they had but depends on the man whether they died with the man on the hill and what kind of deeds did they do
this is the beauty of Islam Islam is a pair of glasses that completely changes what you see
it's a pair of glasses that assume you put on you see reality.
It's like saying For example, you were supposed to go wearing glasses, tinted glasses, big tinted glasses or whatever blue tinted, everything would look pink, everything would look blue.
But that's not reality. So as soon as you take those glasses off and you put on your normal regular glasses, then you actually see all the colors.
So Islam and Tawheed is the glasses is the lens that enables you to see the reality
until then, you and I have been deceived by shatta and because we have been given tinted glasses
what is you call it some is
where we have been taught and trained and conditioned to believe that it is okay to
to to buy the enmity of Allah subhanaw taala
is okay to be counted among the enemies of Allah is it okay I mean, this is this is what we have been taught right.
All kinds of material is banking is to accept the enmity of Allah subhanaw taala. To add to accept a declaration of war from Allah subhanaw taala and Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah
to what you call somebody who is who you are at war with enemy.
So when you're signing that paper,
taking that interest based loan
Islam and though he will show you that this paper
what it seems, this is actually the declaration of war that you accepted from Allah. And you are now signing saying I accept
in Allah when Allah Raja
if you did not
see that, when you were selling the paper,
then you need to ask yourself, I need to ask myself this question and say, Do I really have covered the map? Do I really believe in Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah.
Allah says there are three fundamental
issues are, are three fundamental things in Islam. Number one is the heat. It is the uniqueness and the end the unitary position of the worship of Allah subhanaw taala as Muslims, we do not worship anyone or anything else, La ilaha illa Allah.
The second one is the position of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, which is the second part of the Kalama we accept that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
is the last and final messenger of Allah subhanaw taala after whom there is no messenger, we accept the book the Kitab of Allah which He brought, we accept the deen of Allah Islam which he brought. We agree to and we agree and we accept and we sign allegiance to obey Him in everything that he told us.
So the second fundamental issue is that of reseller of loser seller, and the third one is of accurate or Tiamat. Which is to, to believe and I understand that one day we will stand before Allah subhana wa Tada.
This life is finite, this life will end and no matter how it ends, whether it ends in a hospital bed, whether it ends in the front of a 16 wheeler truck, whether it ends by you being atomized in a nuclear explosion, whether it ends by you falling into the sea, and being eaten by fish or falling into the Amazon and being eaten by a school of piranhas and you are bits and pieces of you are in every fish, it doesn't matter.
No matter how you end,
Allah subhanho wa Taala will make you and will resurrect you on the Day of Judgment.
There is a beautiful story that was seldom said about he said there are people in the past among them, there was a man
who had committed medicines. They did all kinds of stuff, including us to dig up graves and steal from their, you know what, what people put there. Maybe the coffins and the boxes, and God knows what he used to do all kinds of very big, big, big sins.
So when he was dying, he was Muslim, but he did all this. When he was dying, he called his sons.
And he said to them, tell me Have I fulfilled my duty to you as a father? They said yes, you have done everything that other would have done. And Angela, you took care of us.
He said then make a promise, I want you to promise something which you will do.
So they said what is worse is the first time we will do it. They said yes, we will do it inshallah.
He said, When I die, I want you to burn my body not bury me. He said, burn my body cremate me and collect the ash and go to the top of a mountain in a strong breeze and throw this ash let this ash completely dissipate and disappear in that strong breeze.
So anyway, they argued with him they said what kind of thing is this one? He said no, this is I'm giving you this as my legacy as my I'm making you swear this as a promise that you will do it.
So anyway, they were compelled to they said okay, we'll do that. So when he died, they cremated him. They took the ashes and top of a mountain and threw the ashes away in a strong breeze and that was the end of the story.
That's what as long as I'm said on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will reserve this man.
And Allah will ask him, Why did you give this OCR? Why did you tell your sons to burn you and to throw away the ashes?
The miners ialah I did that because I was so afraid of you.
I was so afraid of what will happen to me before when I come before you because I spent my whole life in sin.
And I was afraid of what will happen to me when I come before you so I told my sons burn me and throw away the ashes in a strong wind so that I cannot be resurrected. But he said to Allah you're redirecting me
to Allah subhanho wa Taala said to him that I created you when you did not exist. So well. How was it difficult for me to redirect you no matter what you do with your with yourself. And then Allah subhanaw taala says at the mercy of Allah matter, then unless Rhonda says to him,
because you feared my anger, because you feared that I will punish you. You took this action. So now I forgive you and I give you
this is the Mercy of Allah America
is a famous Hadith were
actually two of them. One where
a man goes to an alley and he says to him I did so many sins will Allah forgive me?
And the Alice has to after listening to his story, the island sister Nala will not forgive. But like, because you are, you've committed so many sins, I cannot fully Allah subhanaw taala says, This man is Allium is trying to control me is trying to dictate to me what I can do and I cannot do.
So therefore I forget, I forgive the sinner. And I put this element Johanna.
So never ever believe that Allah will not forgive you, Allah will forgive you no matter what, but turn towards Allah.
In another Hadith, as soon as Adam said, There was a man who created a lot of sins, and then he got coffee from Allah subhanho wa Taala to make Mr. Foreign Toba. So he made our image the far he sought pardon of Allah he repented and he
Turn towards Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanaw taala forgive. He made though I said, Yeah Allah, you are my Arab.
You are the one who forgives I'm a sinner, Yara by I beg you to forgive me so forgive me so ALLAH forgive
after one day and the man committed the sin again.
And then in turn towards the last bioterrorism era viewer, Myra, I know you can forgive whatever you want to forgive. So forgive me because there is no one who forgives like you forgive.
So ALLAH forgive him unless rather than I said, he recognizes that he has. He knows that his Rob is the one who forgives and he is seeking forgiveness. So I forgive him.
Then maybe after after sometimes man committed a sin again.
He committed a sin again.
And then he went back to Allah's wrath as a yada
yada I am again I have committed to sin again. But I know that you are the one who forgives.
So please forgive. So Allah says, Here is my slave. He knows that I forgive. He knows he has a rub. He knows his rub is the man who forgives.
And I forgive him. I let him do what he wanted, I will forgive.
That is not a license for us to do whatever whatever we want is just to show the magnanimity of ALLAH SubhanA.
Allah subhanaw taala there are so many Hadith about the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala limited to a couple more.
In another one very famous of these, which many of you are all of you probably have heard before there was this man who was he didn't just commit sins. I mean, this guy was kind of big time because he, he was like a serial killer. Right? So he kills 99 people. Now Allah knows best why he did that, but anyway, kill 99 people. Now after having killed 99 people, this fellow suddenly got one day just to say, well, maybe something is wrong. So he goes to the ILM and he asks him he says, Look, I have committed, I have killed 100 people.
And I want to make Mr. Farr Toba. But before I do that, will Allah forgive me? I mean, I've done I've killed Nigerian people will Allah forgive me?
That man says you are a gun case, right? There's no way that Allah will forgive you.
So, this man got enraged, you pulled out a sword he cut off that banheiros So he says now for us. So now that animals will gone.
Now I went to a second one.
And he said to him, my canines and people after that, I went to this alum I asked him was Allah forgive me and he said, Allah Milan for us, I killed him and so now is 100. Now what do you say?
Good question, right.
So, the second album, he said to him, Look,
do this. One of the reasons why you have committed all these sins is because of the company you keep. These are the kinds of people you stay with. He says, Go from here to such and such a place, which is a town somewhere else,
where people are good people try to hit he said, Go there and then make Toba as the fire and inshallah Allah will forgive you took him and said, okay, he started walking. As he started walking a little while later, he died.
It was time for him to die. So he hasn't reached the place he was supposed to go here he had, he had the intention of going dead here, here started towards that place. But he did not reach that place. And he did not make this far either. He didn't, he didn't repent it. I mean, he was deep in his heart, obviously, he repented because, you know, he that's why he came to this view, but he had not actually formally asked Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness. So he died.
Rasulullah sallam said the angels of Jannah and the angels of Jannah both came there. The annual objectives that this one is clearly ours. So we are taking
the end of the agenda said no, no, no, hold on. You can't take him because he was going there to seek forgiveness.
He didn't reach there. His mock game is a death game. So what can you do but he was headed in the right direction.
So you can't take him.
So they had arguments. Now when they had the argument, they went to Allah subhanaw taala.
And of course, Allah's ratha knows what is happening. Allah subhanaw taala asks a question in order to establish a witness in favor of his lips.
So Allah subhanaw taala said to them, you listen to the stories, then he said to them, go and measure the Earth from where he started to where he died, and then from where he died to the place he was going.
Now the distance between where he started to where he died, is less than the distance from where he died to where he was going. Then he will go to Ghana because he has not gone even
halfway there. And if it is the opposite meaning that if he has gone beyond the halfway mark, then he goes to Ghana.
And when the angels went down Allah subhanaw taala ordered the earth to stretch in a way where this man would appear to have died beyond the halfway mark.
So he was to
Allah forgives him.
in the downside SLM, there was one guy who was so evil so bad
his people threw him out of the place the valley out of the top right?
They did they just want to do that you are not fit to be here, leave.
This man was out in the in the wilderness. He had no support. He had no money. I mean, what we'll do when anyway, but you know, he had no food, whatnot. He got sick, he had no medicines, and he was dying. And he was lying down there, and he died.
When this man died,
Allah subhanaw taala.
Ordered Musa is Allah, Allah, Allah said to moosari Salaam, that guy who was thrown out of your town,
he's in such a place in the wilderness, he's dead. Go and give him Mosul and cover and pray his Salah to Gerasa and bury him. And Allah is right, that is it announced in the town, that whoever accompanies you for this job, Allah Subhana Allah will forgive all the sins
of Musa Islam.
He was perplexed he was absolutely astounded and published, but he did I mean what Allah told him to do, he did. And the old town when because now you know, Allah is going to forgive since to the whole town when there and they found his man and they they found the body they did the apostle janazah everything they prayed for his forgiveness and the very dim and they went off.
But this thing was with Musa Musa CERAM went back to Allah subhanaw taala he said, Yara, what is the secret behind his why? Why did you ask me who Here was a man who was so evil so bad that we threw him out of the town? And not only do you ask me to go and do is Jana, you say that you will forgive anyone else who joins this.
to what is it this bandit?
Allah subhanaw taala said when the man was dying, he looked up at the sky. And he raised his finger and he said, Yarrow.
He said, Yara,
if I knew,
if I knew that by not forgiving me, it would make you happy, I would not ask for you.
And if I knew that by putting me in the fire, you would be pleased. I would not say forgiveness. And if I knew that by giving me other by giving by punishing me, it would increase your status. I would not ask forgiveness. But I know that none of this matters to you. So forgive me.
He made his own. They might remember.
Nobody does anything on their own. This duar to make this dua who puts in the heart of the of the man unless
So Musa is Islas Robertson, who says this is what the man asked me. So I forgive him and I will and I said I will forgive anyone who pays for it.
So sum total of today's
seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Do not wait, do not
delay. Do it and do it right away. Because this is what Allah subhanaw taala likes. Allah subhanaw taala likes those who are
quick in seeking forgiveness, who don't wait and don't delay and don't do all that.
We ask Allah Subhana Allah to be pleased with you and ever to be displeased and to forgive you forgive your sins. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from sins because that is the biggest calamity. In this world. It's not disease is not war. It is not, not even death. It is since
death is inevitable, but going to Jannah is not inevitable.
So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive our sins or some of the harana will carry on it. He was so good man. Good to go.
