I want you to listen to me today in sha Allah to Allah with your hearts.
Not only with your ears,
or your minds, but with your hearts.
this most annoying or most
hated person in your life. Someone that
abused you or abuses you.
Then imagine this person,
someone that you're trying to bring yourself to forgive. But somehow, you're finding it very difficult to forgive
someone that whenever you remember,
or anything that reminds you, of him or her brings you a lot of pain and anger.
Now, I know that many unfortunately,
hold on to their graduates and to their ill feeling into their anger into the memory.
Sometimes people even remember that specific moment, or experiences
that make them feel that way. They remember that person and they remember,
these memories come back these painful memories.
And now we hear about people who somehow find a way
to let go.
some may even claim to forget.
And we sometimes get fascinated by these examples. And sometimes we can't even fathom or imagine how anyone is capable of letting go
of a feeling towards someone that hurt them as much as this individual in our lives.
And we may even tell ourselves note, these individuals who are forgiving
those who offended them, that must not be
in any way or shape close to what I have experienced or endured from this person.
And somehow we find a way to just hold on
to the pain and to the grudge into the ill feeling into the memory.
And we don't forgive unfortunately there are some people who may even have hard time letting go of little things that the average person considers to be very minor.
So if you're one of these people,
I want you to listen to me today for Allah azza wa jal and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presented you and I with an opportunity.
But in order to get us
as inspired because I'm saying that I want you to listen to me with your hearts
Only Allah Subhana Allah knows and this is not by any means. This is not meant to dismiss
or not validate how you feel. This is not meant to
ridicule or to minimize and belittle what you have went through.
Only Allah Subhana Allah knows the extent of your pain, the extent of your suffering,
right? Only Allah knows. But we know that Allah Subhana Allah has reward is as much as you give up and you endure. In Nemo for Saburo Anna Maria he said there is no limit to the reward of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. But Allah azza wa jal in His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presented us with an opportunity to allow us to heal,
to allow us to be forgiven,
to allow us to live a healthy life
and move on.
In a story that you find in the authentic books of Hadith,
were told by the very person who was at the center of the story, shuttled in wahana
that her father vowed
not to spend any money
on his cousin, Miss lie.
And for those who may not be familiar with the story, Mr. was one of the individuals who propagated and
actively were spreading false accusations against one of the purest human beings. Aisha Radi Allahu anha are so deep into Sudan, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
her own relative.
And Miss thought was someone was one of the people who were who were on our Buckers payroll.
He was taking care of him financially. So when he's his cousin,
right to he's taking care of him financially.
But then he goes, and he starts spreading rumors, untrue, false accusations about not only about his second cousin or the daughter of his cousin, Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Allah, but the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And when this came out,
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu vowed
ever take care of Mr. Or pay for him or spend any money on him.
Allah Allah he will become so you do not overcrowd the Allahu Anhu Allah, Allah Allah Allah any x Somerby na wala Hila onfield Corolla Mr. Allah, Mr. henchy and bad the Lydia Khalili, Ayesha
I will never spend anything I will not give him anything. He's not worthy of it. I ungrateful of them.
right decision. However,
it's not befitting for someone like Allah azza wa jal
who holds Abubaker to higher standards. And Allah azza wa jal prazer. Buckland Surah Noor Surah 24 verse 22 Go look it up. Allah azza wa jal revealed a verse that will be recited until the day of judgment and it was a message to overcome all the Allah.
Allah azza wa jal sent a personal message to Abu Bakr, the Alon, and it applies to all to everyone that wants to follow the example of Abu Bakar Allah azza wa jal says, When I tell you all in fogli, mean Comosa when I tell you a lie oxy mobila
Liar Khalifa Allah, Allah azza wa jal
when I tell you all will probably mean Kumar Sati are you to only one Messiah Kena Well, mohajir Ina, feasable Allah so Allah subhana wa Tada said, let not those people have that Allah subhanaw taala consider to be people of grace, people will have plenty Allah azza wa jal has blessed them.
Those who were endowed by Allah subhanho wa Taala let them not
take an oath or vow not to give their relatives or the needy or those who migrated recevied Allah and Messiah was one of them. Mr. Howe was a good person. So even the best of people, right? Even some of the best of us can make these kinds of mistakes. It's a grave serious mistake for which he was actually punished. Right? It was a crime punishable under Islamic law to slander people.
Subhana Allah Allah says in spite of what he did, he's a Mahajan.
Right? He's a miskeen and he is a relative.
Right? Let's, those of you whom Allah azza wa jal has endowed and blessed
not vow not to give, because you're doing a tree sebelah is unconditional. Your support over your family members or your cousins, as trees have been in for Allah subhanho wa taala. To keep the ties of of the wounds because Allah subhanaw taala told you to do so. Let them not vow by Allah subhanaw taala to cut them off.
When he asked for well as file, then Allah subhanaw taala said, Let them in his stead. Forgive and pardon. It's not easy.
Forgive him pardon.
Allah to hipbone a Hellfire Hola, hola, como. We were talking about this last week connected to head to toe and had effortless boiling MALDI. We were talking about repenting and asking Allah for forgiveness, one of the means to receive forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala comes through being able to forgive others. Those who offended us, we're not talking about forgiving others, meaning those who didn't do anything to you. No, we're talking about people who offended you. That's when it counts. You can say well, I forgive all people. While this general type of forgiveness that we we offer to people, it's really meaningless. What counts is the specific cases and individuals
that you just
you're struggling to, to let go of what they have done to you.
Right, so Allah subhanaw taala is talking about a specific offense here that caused the Boubacar to make that decision Allah said to reverse your decision don't do that. Well yeah for well yes file and let them forgive him. Pardon. I like to be born on your fear Allahu Allah come, don't you want Allah azza wa jal to forgive you your sins.
Allah has a photo right? When this verse was revealed a book of said he came to the Prophet and he said Bella, Bella, Allah He in the way boy, Allah holy.
Indeed, I would love that Allah Subhana Allah forgives me my sins.
And he reinstated whatever he used to give me on a regular basis. And he vowed just because he vowed
to, not not to give him he vowed he made a vow. He said, What Allah you know, and zero Have you ever done by Allah, I will never stop this.
I will never ever stop this for as long as Allah Subhana Allah gives me the ability to do so he is immune, there is nothing that Mr. can do that will make me stop this. I'll take care of him. I'll take care of him as long as he needs it. I'll take care of him. unconditional support. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala promised him forgiveness.
Now some of us we think, and you have shaytaan your own demons or, or sometimes even unfortunately, demons in in the form of human beings, sometimes in the form of friends, or relatives who come and whisper into your ears Oh, no, don't let go. Don't forget what they did to us. As a matter of fact, sometimes unfortunately, we pass this to even individuals who had nothing to do with the original dispute.
So one of the most disgusting things that I see sometimes is, you know, for instance, a parents who pass on to their children, they poison their children and their children's relationships with their aunts and uncles or cousins. Why because they
had or they have a dispute, an ongoing dispute with either this uncle or this cousin or this brother or even sometimes the in law. Sometimes it's it's not even what do my children have to do with what my brother in law or what my sister in law are doing to me or they're doing to they're just weird.
Weird. Don't come near them. Don't talk to them, boycott them.
This is sickening. And Allah azza wa jal calls us to let go of these things.
And Allah subhanaw taala calls us to rectify our affairs and mend these broken ties that we have.
In El Mina Nona, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, Allah Azza wa sallahu that Khomeini come well to Allah, Allah rasool Allah who encounter many fewer true believers, then obey Allah and His messenger and rectify or mend or take care and reconcile between yourselves as believers, let alone community members, let alone family, or people who are related to you.
But if we don't
Learn the power of forgiveness.
Then it's very hard for us to
Allah azza wa jal through his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I promise the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Allah subhanahu wata, Ana because sometimes people come to you they don't let go, don't let go, you will be taken advantage of.
If you forgive your wife, if you forgive your husband, if you forgive your child, if you forgive your parents, if you forgive your brother or your sister or your cousin or your uncle or your aunt, if you forgive them,
right, they will take advantage of you.
They will think that your your, your your, they will consider you to be a fool.
They will think that you're okay with these kinds of things. So don't, don't forgive them. This is this type of thought or advice will only come from a shaytaan or someone who is sent by Shavon.
Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam A says, And he swears by ALLAH SubhanA wa to either womanizer, the law who I've done behalf when Allah
the Prophet SAW Selim says he swears by Allah, that if someone gives forgives and pardons, let's go, the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam says it says Allah Subhana Allah will give him as
that person will be dignified, that person will be glorified by Allah subhanho wa taala.
Nothing comes out of forgiveness except glory.
Someone might say well, you know, no people you don't understand. People will step all over you people will take advantage of you.
People will consider you this or that. I don't care what people consider you. Because the prophets Allah Allah, I think I sent him here, promise me that Allah azza wa jal, right? If I humble myself, when I tell all about Abdullah in Darfur, Allah subhanaw taala will elevate me and if I forgive him, pardon,
Allah subhanho wa Taala will give me as
will honor Me and will elevate my rank.
And I believe the progress on Sunday sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Masada calahorra SUTA I don't care about your culture standards or how you know I don't care about how people perceive me.
I care about how Allah subhanho wa Taala or what Allah subhanaw taala knows of me. So I'm going to forgive
on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us
that even on that day, Allah azza wa jal honors those who forgive.
In a hadith were told that on the Day of Judgment, an individual will come making a claim against someone, and his claim will be accepted. However, this person that he made a claim against is another believer. And that believer runs out of good deeds or his good his good deeds and bad deeds are balanced at the same level.
If this claim of his brother or this other community member or relative, if this charge against him is taken,
if he does not forgive him, what happens? He's done, he's doomed, he will go to hellfire.
So when this individual comes Allah azza wa jal, please, on behalf of this, on behalf of this individual says, But your brother Ron, you know is at this point he is this is going to tip off his his scale.
If you don't, why don't you forgive him? Because if you don't forgive him, he will go to hellfire. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that, that this individual will say to Allah, Oh Allah, I want my help. And you are the most just,
but then he will be told to or he will be inspired to look up and he will look up.
At that point, Allah subhanaw taala will show him a massive, beautiful, magnificent palace.
And this individual just falls in love with that palace.
And will say I wonder what kind of Prophet or what kind of Shahid or what kind of righteous person will receive this.
What does it take to get something like this, and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tirana will tell him, it will be offered to whoever is willing to pay the price.
And he will say oh my lord and what kind of price or what would be the price of a place like that?
And Allah subhanho wa Taala will say to him forgiving your brother
for forgiving your brother.
And the person will say oh Allah I forgive him for something like that. I will forgive him.
And Allah Subhana Allah data will tell him you
hold the hand of your brother and walk him or walk with Him to Jannah.
Even on that day, Allah subhanaw taala is willing to reward
So imagine what you will receive in this life for being able to let go and forgive, unconditionally giving it up for Allah subhanho wa Taala well yeah for well your sparkle allowed to hipbone a fair Hola, hola, Bella, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us our sins, and to make us of those who are capable of forgiving others. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to heal us and fewers We ask Allah subhanaw taala to rid us of our pain and our older grudges and our ill feelings. Akoto has told us so for Allah Allah, Allah can facilitate Eroica Camino who Allah for all right.
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam, O Allah,
Allah that Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran, praise the believers, Allah azza wa jal consider them to be of the mercy and those who excel in doing good deeds.
One of the qualities
of the sinning and then with Turkey in that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran in surah Al Quran Allah subhanho wa Taala says, praising these people
and saying that they were promised Jana Otto has somewhere to work or that Lynwood teen, Allah azza wa jal says of their qualities
are the following.
Take Take note of this, pay attention to this.
I let the you know you don't feel corner, those who spent their wealth fissara He will not allow a times of adversity or a times of prosperity in times of adversity, not only when things are, you know, good. But also when things are very tight and difficult. They continue to spend unconditionally.
You have your corner fissara.
And then what?
What comes after that, we'll call the mean Allah you, those who suppress their anger.
Those who control their frustration, those who keep there calm, we'll call the mean and life. And it implies the words that are used commonly, it means that they have that legitimate feeling. It doesn't say they're those who don't feel anger, no, you feel anger.
And you feel the pain.
And you're hurt.
But you hold on to it, you suppress it, we'll call the mean and
when I feel that in us, but not only are they capable of controlling their anger, their anger and suppressing their frustration, but they're actually capable, they find the strength to forgive people to pardon people. Some of them may even go a step further, Wallah who have been more sinning, not only do they forgive, but the pardon and they let go.
We are told that a righteous man one time one of his servants, spilled hot liquid or soup on him.
And he was very angry. How comes you how, how careless?
He said to him.
Well, Kelvin mean Allah. I reminded him of this. Allah says, well, Kelvin, me and Elena,
right, and those who suppress their anger. And he said, Come home to Haley. He said, For the sake of Allah, I will suppress my anger, I will hold it. I said, he said, Well, I feel and in us
and those who pardon or forgive people, he said, You know what, not only am I not going to act upon my anger, but I will let go and I will forgive you. And by the way, one of the best ways to
get rid of ill feelings in anger and frustration is to forgive, to like to actively you have to basically force yourself to forgive. Because once you forgive house, that's it. You gave your word. You know what, I'll let it go.
It's not a big deal, makes you stronger. Does it make you a full and it's not going to cause people to take advantage of you, it will make you a strong person,
at least in the eyes of Allah Subhana Allah and in the eyes of those who matter the most. So he said to him, I forgive you. Then he said to him, Allah who will my sin, but however Allah subhanaw taala loves those who excel in doing good deeds. And he said to him, You know what? You're free. I free up sebelah taco taco, so not only did he not punish him
And forgive him but he actually rewarded him.
And I always whenever I come upon this I had this I had in this story of I asked myself, Where did he find the strings to do that? through forgiveness. That's the power of forgiveness.
That's the power of forgiveness when you let go of something that someone did to you, for us to be in Allah. Allah subhanaw taala gives you strength and honors you and glorifies you Wallah, you have been more sinning. So we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us of the Mazzini We ask Allah azza wa jal to give us the strength to overcome our weaknesses and our shortcomings and the ill feelings in the offenses that were committed against us. We ask Allah subhana wa to Allah, to liberate us and not to make us hostages or to those memories and the pain. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to cure and purify our hearts and forgive our sins. My dear brothers and sisters this morning.
Or actually, a couple of hours ago, something caught my attention, I received a very painful news
from from Orange County, one of the finest young men in our community was walking with his wife and his child
on the sidewalk when a drunk driver ran them over killing him and since
on the spot.
And his wife and his child are in critical condition. As a matter of fact, I just received two minutes before I went on to the member from one of the doctors at the hospital, who was a good friend of his. He said they're in really bad shape and they need your job. Right. But so how am I something caught my attention when I saw that one of their friends from that MSA saying I saw him two weeks ago or three weeks ago at Jumeirah. I wish I had hugged him
and I wanted to share with you this message.
That next time you see your loved one your friend, a community member, a family member, right? Don't hold back.
Forgive, pardon. Embrace that individual.
with the love and the respect that you have expressed your feelings.
Right? Ask them for forgiveness and you offer them forgiveness.
Right? Check on them before it's too late.
Before it's too late.
You never know when it's going to be
when you're going to have the opportunity to see them again. Treat every moment with your loved ones, your friends and the community members as a special moment and opportunity. Right shake hands, hug whatever you need to do to express how you feel about a person don't hold back.
