00:00:06--> 00:00:13

Salam Alaikum everyone smilla 100 Allah salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was a drain.

00:00:15--> 00:00:21

I asked the Lord to bless us and you and Armando Shaban and to deliver us to the month of Ramadan

00:00:23--> 00:00:41

tonight's tonight's reflection on a verse will be worrying Allah subhanho wa Taala said and sort of in order to overcome so do for the Allahu anhu and to the whole world after him and through him he said foliar foils fell. I like to hit buena el Faro Allahu la ku

00:00:42--> 00:00:55

they should they is referring to people like Abu Bakar the lavon May Allah make us like them. They should pardon others while he was fine. Oh, and just let let things go.

00:00:57--> 00:01:13

You know, start a clean slate. Let people start a clean slate. ls la buena young Pharaoh mahalo calm. And here is the perfect reason to do that. Don't you like it? Wouldn't you love it that Allah forgive you? You know, the scholars had many beautiful things about this ayah

00:01:14--> 00:01:28

of them is that Allah loves to forgive. Because if you pay attention to the verse, he's actually throwing the ball, the proverbial ball in your court. When he's saying, Don't you want to be forgiven? Meaning it's really up to you.

00:01:30--> 00:01:46

And so if you want to be forgiven, here's what you need to do. You need to forgive others. If you want yourself as a servant of Allah, to meet Allah having been forgiven for your sins, then forgive the servants of Allah for their sins. It

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

is very interesting how people when they

00:01:51--> 00:02:25

have some sort of ill feelings towards others, or there's a grudge or whatnot. They focus too much on others not on themselves. And they focus too much on this world and not the next. So focus too much on others. You like yeah, that loser creep person arrogant, no good. It's like, whoa, hold on, you're thinking about that person too much. You don't want to forgive them because they don't deserve to be forgiven. But what about you? Don't you deserve to be forgiven? This is what our laws are jealous, shifting our attention towards, don't you want to be forgiven? Wouldn't you like to be forgiven, then forgive them

00:02:26--> 00:02:50

because the repayment comes most appropriate in the same nature as the deed that you did. The other issue is that people sometimes forgive others, and have them that they forgive others. But for you know, they could do better on their reasoning, you know, they say, I forgive so and so or I should forgive so and so for me so I could be at peace, you being at peace, you being comfortable in this world

00:02:51--> 00:03:12

is not our ultimate goal as Muslims, our ultimate goal is to be at peace forever everlasting pleasure, and so will bite the bullet will swallow you know, the the bitter taste of being the one to let things go and because we want a loss, forgiven forgiveness, may Allah allow us and you to experience His forgiveness era. And

00:03:14--> 00:03:50

there really is so much to be said. But just think about that, that moment where you're sitting there and saying, you know, this person doesn't deserve to be forgiven. You know, one of the sellers actually when he when he heard another man, listing off rattling off all the bad qualities of another person. He said to him something very simple. He said, like you're staring you're focused, you're fixated on their, their bad side, their ugly side, he said, Oklahoma is all there is a j shut those eyes of yours and remember the day that they will really be shut and cotton will be placed over them, meaning to remember the moments of shroud when you're being shrouded when you're being

00:03:50--> 00:04:31

wrapped up to be placed into the earth. At that moment, you will know the value of forgiveness. You will know the value of worrying about yourself not worrying about others, and letting things go with others so that you can be let go of the consequences of your crimes. Interestingly, you know, we have a hadith that you know, some of the scholars deem confirmed or they deem it traceable, authentically traceable to the prophet SAW Selim. Then when it is the midway point of Chabad though there is no specific act of worship to be done, or at least the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and the Sahaba never performed a specific act of worship on the middle in the middle of Shaban. There's

00:04:31--> 00:04:40

a hadith that does seem to have some reliability and its transmission that says that when it's the middle point of Shabbat in the middle night of Shabbat, Allah overlooks the people and forgives them.

00:04:43--> 00:04:53

Except for a machete or a machete and someone who is a polytheist, a disbeliever, or someone who is Jewish and someone who carries hard feelings and grudges against others.

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

And that's really interesting because that means Siobhan is supposed to be a time when we pick up the phones and we

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Reach out to people and we squash things and and and that is also the time when shaytaan gets us to start more beef than ever more problems than ever, so that we go into Ramadan with this so Allah Who wants you to cleanse before you go into Ramadan so that you can ascend to new heights and Ramadan and shaytaan wants to ruin your Ramadan before it starts by getting you to carry these poisonous toxic feelings towards others. And so you owe it to yourself in the hereafter before the dunya to be forgiven by Allah foliar folios. And so, pardon people just let it go pick up the phone, be the one to start the conversation. put it behind you. I like to hit bone if you're on La Jolla come Don't

00:05:44--> 00:05:59

you love it that are loud forgive you. Wouldn't you love for Allah to forgive you? Oh Allah, we love that you forgive us. So help us find it in our heart to forgive others. Let it be tonight before tomorrow and let it be shut down before Ramadan. Zack luckily and everybody and

00:06:02--> 00:06:14

we may be starting a new series in preparation for Ramadan, the rulings and the structure that could help us make the best out of this blessing month. What if you have any particular requests or questions on topics

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

do send them our way in shallow tada and we will try it
