Allah Azawajal will not just forgive you if

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

your tawba is true.

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

He will forgive you

00:00:06 --> 00:00:08

and love you. You know, that's the difference.

00:00:09 --> 00:00:11

Do you realize that we must always reflect

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

on the fact that there's 7, 000, 000,

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

000 people on earth

00:00:14 --> 00:00:15

approximately right now.

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

Any 1 of them can be loved by

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

Allah Azawajal

00:00:21 --> 00:00:23

because he is alwadud, he's the most loving.

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

With human beings, with human beings

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

you can forgive someone but it's hard to

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

forget the pain,

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

right?

00:00:30 --> 00:00:34

But to love them like before or even

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

more than that,

00:00:35 --> 00:00:37

this may be impossible for humans. Right? Like

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

I forgive you, it's fine, you're Muslim now,

00:00:39 --> 00:00:41

it's good, you know, all of that. Right?

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

Like Umar Radialahu Han actually his brother, he

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

had a brother named Zaid who was killed

00:00:44 --> 00:00:45

by a man.

00:00:46 --> 00:00:47

And then that man became Muslim. And so

00:00:47 --> 00:00:49

Umar the 1 time when he was Khalifa,

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

he saw he saw this man, he like

00:00:50 --> 00:00:53

he did this look like, is that him?

00:00:54 --> 00:00:55

And he said, so why are you looking

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

at me like that? He said, you're so

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

and so. You killed my brother.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:03

He said, yeah, I did.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

I mean, years ago, years, decades ago. He

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

said, so that's why I'm looking at you

00:01:08 --> 00:01:09

like that. I don't like

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

you. He said, will that prevent me from

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

any of my rights like with Allah or

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

like in the like am I in trouble

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

right now?

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

He said no, just don't like you.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

He said no, that's fine. It's your business.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

Nothing to do with me. Right? It's just

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

We can't flip a switch.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

Right? But Allah Azzawajal is Al Ghafoorul Wadud.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:32

He's the 1 that forgives anything and everything

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

for those who repent

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

and conceals them until they repent

00:01:36 --> 00:01:38

and loves them after they repent.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

You know there's this story,

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

and I'll wrap up here of

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

the man from the people of Musa alaihis

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

salam. When Musa alaihis salam was leading Banu

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

Israeel

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

during his lifetime, they suffered a very difficult

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

drought

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

and they were pleading to Allah Azawajal.

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

They all came out together to appeal to

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

Allah, Allah we're dying here and the animals

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

will die and the people will die, we

00:02:05 --> 00:02:08

need rain, oh Allah have mercy on us.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:11

And then nothing was being answered until finally

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

Allah Azawajal

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

revealed

00:02:14 --> 00:02:17

to Musa Alaihi Salam, there is among you

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

a man that has been challenging me, defying

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

me

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

with sins for 40 years.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

Tell him to leave from among you

00:02:26 --> 00:02:28

and you will get your reign.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

So Musa Alaihi Salam stands in front of

00:02:30 --> 00:02:33

Ben Ussalaihi and he gives them a sermon,

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

he says to them,

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

whoever you are, whatever you've been doing for

00:02:37 --> 00:02:40

40 years, all the crimes you've been committing,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

at the very least,

00:02:41 --> 00:02:44

don't commit the crime of killing Asal, right?

00:02:44 --> 00:02:44

Just leave.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

Let that be your good deed essentially, just

00:02:47 --> 00:02:47

leave.

00:02:49 --> 00:02:49

And then

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

nobody left,

00:02:52 --> 00:02:53

and then they got the rain.

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

So Musa alaihis salam alaihis yalla, nobody left

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

but he gave us the rain. What happened?

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

He said he made tawba to me just

00:03:03 --> 00:03:04

like that, you repented.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

That's why I gave you the rain.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

He said to him, you Allah show me

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

this righteous servant of yours, Like this is

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

the man whose

00:03:12 --> 00:03:15

repentance was so powerful, was so sincere that

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

you moved the clouds and finally sent them

00:03:17 --> 00:03:18

our way and we haven't seen him for

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

ages and show him to me this righteous

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

servant of yours.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

And so

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

Allah azza wa Jal said to Musa alaihis

00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

salam,

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

O Musa,

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

for 40 years

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

he defies me and I conceal him.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

The day he repents to me, I'm gonna

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

expose him.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

You can't see him.

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

And the prophet sallallahu

00:03:49 --> 00:03:52

alaihi wasallam mentioned to us 2 ahadid about

00:03:52 --> 00:03:53

the cutoff of repentance.

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

The first of them is in Sayyid Muslim

00:03:57 --> 00:04:00

wherein he said, SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam, Inna Allah

00:04:00 --> 00:04:03

yabsu 2 yadaahu binaha liatuba musiulay

00:04:04 --> 00:04:06

Allah extends his hands by day so that

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

those who sin at night may repent.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

And he extends his hand by night so

00:04:15 --> 00:04:17

that those who sin during the day may

00:04:17 --> 00:04:17

repent.

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

And this will continue to happen.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

And this will continue to happen

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

10 years, 20 years, 30 years, 40 years,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

right? Imagine someone holding their hand out for

00:04:28 --> 00:04:29

you that long.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

Parents even, they're the last ones but even

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

they have a breaking point and they give

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

up on their children sometimes, and they stop

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

waiting sometimes, they stop leaving the lights on

00:04:37 --> 00:04:40

sometimes, they stop leaving the door open sometimes.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

As rare as that is even parents but

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

Allah continues to do it,

00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

remains

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

the door of repentance remains open.

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

And the second of the 2 hadith is

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

a Hayitha Abduh Muhammad al Hassan radiAllahu anhu

00:05:00 --> 00:05:02

man wherein he said that the prophet Sallallahu

00:05:02 --> 00:05:03

Alaihi Wasallam said,

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

Inna Allah Youqbalu

00:05:06 --> 00:05:09

tahubatal abidi ma'alam yukargrir Allah will continue

00:05:11 --> 00:05:11

to accept

00:05:12 --> 00:05:14

the repentance of his servant so long as

00:05:14 --> 00:05:15

he does not rattle

00:05:16 --> 00:05:18

or gargle, meaning the rattling of the soul

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

as it exits the throat.

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

So so long as this world has not

00:05:22 --> 00:05:23

ended

00:05:23 --> 00:05:26

or your last moments in this world have

00:05:26 --> 00:05:26

not

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

ended Allah will accept from you your repentance

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

so long as you try, so long as

00:05:32 --> 00:05:34

you regret, so long as you try.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:37

But when that moment comes that repentance is

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

not repentance.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

That repentance is a wish

00:05:41 --> 00:05:43

because there's no room to intent. You know

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

there's no room and so the intention is

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

not an intention, it's an idea, it's a

00:05:47 --> 00:05:49

wish. So make it a reality today

00:05:50 --> 00:05:53

and know that Allah's forgiveness and mercy and

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

compassion and concealment

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

is mind blowing. May Allah grant us the

00:05:57 --> 00:05:59

greatest share of it in the next world

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

and allow us to fully access it and

00:06:01 --> 00:06:03

take advantage of it in this world.
