This villa hamdu lillah
wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma alumna may have found out or found me my LinkedIn or was it in our email? Yeah, and I mean Lydia has sent me on a pole of her tibia center.
Well, that well welcome to another episode of the prophetic Chronicles in sha Allah to Allah, we still have maybe a couple of
a couple of stories that we're going to be sharing next week and maybe one more
the following year tonight
is in sha Allah Allah. You know, there is a very short story, since this is the second shortest day of the year. Right? So bear with us Inshallah,
unless you have to go if you have to go you have to go and shamatha
but it's a very important Hadith before I mentioned the story.
Allah subhanho wa Taala I must say that Allah azza wa jal, one of his traits and attributes is that he is most forgiving. Allah Subhana Allah is forgiving. He is Allah for
the most forgiving.
He is who He forgives and he pardoned Subhan Allah to Allah. And Allah subhanaw taala of His attributes and qualities is that he is Rahim. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Right has mentioned in the Quran like the verse that I recited in the law help with the Nova Jamia Allah azza wa jal wipes out and forgives all sins. Right?
In Surah Nisa, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in the law Hello al futile, unusual RKB Allah azza wa jal does not forgive shidduch sociated partners with Allah subhanaw taala Well, if you're all mad doing a Daddy, can you measure anything other than the shirt Allah Subhana Allah to Allah forgives it or may forgive it to him ever he will Subhanallah with that. So this act of forgiveness is one of ALLAH SubhanA one winter Ana's essential qualities and attributes. And it is not for anyone to restrict it, or even to offer it to anyone, or even to ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive anyone except
those whom Allah subhanaw taala allows us to do that with right. So whether you are asking Allah to forgive someone, or you are saying Allah will not forgive something or someone
You should not actually utter these statements without having permission or green light from Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, essentially when you ask Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness even for yourself or for anyone else, right?
When he asked Allah azza wa jal for forgiveness,
you are basically interceding on your on your behalf or on behalf of someone else. And we know that before you intercede before you ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala you have to have permission. Right? You can't just
you can't just ask a loss of half hour without permission. Now when it comes to seeking forgiveness for what we do, for what we do,
we have we have permission from Allah Subhana Allah Allah in the Quran, and the process of them told us that we should seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa taala. And that if as a matter of fact, it's a sin to stop asking Allah to forgive us. It's a sin for you to act to stop asking Allah to forgive you. Or to think that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala may not forgive you.
Forgive you, right. Now when it comes to someone else, right? Another person, when you're asking Allah to forgive someone.
If you're asking Allah to forgive the person, it must be someone that you can ask forgiveness for.
Or someone that you were commanded to ask Allah to forgive like your own, believing parents, right?
So you cannot ask Allah to forgive someone that Allah has given himself said, You cannot ask me to forgive that person. Or if Allah says this category, or this type of sin, I don't forgive. So can I ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive someone who is committing schicke? To commit? No we can. Now I can ask Allah to guide them. Right? Likewise, you can ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive someone who died upon share gourcuff. Right? Why? Because again, we don't have right, the right to do so. Now, having said that, likewise, you cannot say Allah will not forgive someone
without evidence or without permission from Allah subhanaw taala.
Right, this is very critical. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the story on the authority of Abu Hurayrah. Abu Huraira said Samira to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I
Yo goon. He said I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling them the following story. Cannot Ulan if he Benny Zara EDA moto Hain
he said that there were two men from Benwick Surah Al from those who were before. And they were, they were friends. They had a special bond. They were like brothers, they were friends. So how can I help you whom you would enable? One of them was a sinner he used to commit sins was very simple, you know, one effort on which day he don't feel very bad. As for the other, he was very,
you know, devout, he devoted himself to worship and he did not indulge in any sins.
Can Allah is He Do y'all ever let them be fair whole Axure.
The devout servant, the devout individual used to whenever he saw his brother or his friend, brother, meaning brother in faith, right? Whenever he saw his brother or his friend, committing a sin or doing something he will tell him stop. You have to stop stop sinning.
So Jada who Yeoman Allah them. One day the prophesy Selim said he found him committing a sin
for Canada who accept.
So he said to him, you have to stop what you're doing.
So he said to him, his friend, the sinner said to him, Collini will be upgraded to either your Akiva. He said to him, leave me alone. Leave me to my Lord, right? You're not supposed to watch over me. You're not responsible for my sins. Right?
Now for Karla, so this man when he said that to him, he was offended. Because he was hurt. He was upset. He said, Well, hola, hola. Hola. Hola.
Oh, LA, you would hook along with Jana. The peroxide Salim said that by Allah,
his his, his swearing by Allah, he's making an oath. He said by Allah, Allah will not forgive you. Or he said to him, right?
Allah will not allow you to enter Jannah you will be disqualified from gender.
Now he's making this assertion
based on what? Divine Revelation.
Now, this was his own person on what his own personal judgment, right?
For Kabbalah, or wahama, so Allah subhanho wa Taala at that moment took their lives.
They both died. Can you imagine this?
So what was the last thing that happened?
Right, this conversation. One of them was committing a sin. The other one came and started scolding him and forbidding him and yelling at him and when he said leave me alone. This is between me and Allah. Right? So he said to him, Allah will not forgive you and then they died.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that your timer, interrupt Bill Alameen so they bought they both were brought before Allah subhanho wa taala. Now they're both or their souls are in the presence of Allah subhana wa Taala for God that he hadn't was to hit. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada said to this, the one who was devout and very, you know, who worked very hard, a couldn t be Alima
did you have knowledge of this? What are you knowledgeable of me?
I will contact Allah mafia, the power the euro. Or were you able or did you have any authority? Over what what is within my hands? What is within the hands of Allah?
The fate the fate of everyone and everything right? Allah subhanaw taala has the judgment that belongs to Allah azza wa jal. So now Allah azza wa jal is asking him these rhetorical questions. Allah subhanaw taala is scolding him Allah Subhana Allah is reprimanding him, Allah subhanaw taala is not pleased with him.
Right? Why? In another narration is said that Allah subhanaw taala said men the lady Yet Allah like, Who is this person who does he think he is to vow that I will not do such and such or do such and such?
Who gave him that authority? You know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment. He's going to ask Allah azza wa jal, right? You know, he's going to intercede. Allah subhanaw taala will allow the prophets I send them to, to do Shiva, right what we know as Shiva intercession. But before the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam is able to do that he has to seek permission from Allah azza wa jal to allow him to do it.
He won't be able to do it on his own. He can't take the initiative. Not only that when Adam
As Salam committed a sin, Adam and Eve Sam did not know how to ask Allah for forgiveness. It wasn't until Allah taught him how to ask for forgiveness, that Allah Akbar, Adam will rob you he can imagine Fatah Valley.
This is asking for forgiveness for himself. So whether it is granting forgiveness or depriving someone from the Mercy of Allah or from from forgiveness, no one has the authority or the right except Allah subhanaw taala and whose hand in whose hands is the fate of everything and everyone. So Allah said to him, right, how dare you do this? Right? Who told you to do this? Who are you to impose your will or your wish on me? And to swear by Allah subhanaw taala to vow, you know, when you le le Kasam on health, right? You know, if, let's say,
if we have a strong bond, you're, you're me and I want you to do something. For me, I'll say but Allah, you will do such and such for me. Right? We're human beings. I swear about loss of habitat. Right? Now, if, if I mean something to you, right, then you you're going to what? You're going to honor that? Right, you will say, Okay, you sweat, you know, because I invoked Allah subhanaw taala his name? So can I impose on you depends, depends on the relationship that we have. Right? But a total stranger that you don't know, if that person comes in and starts imposing on you their wish or their will, you're going to give me something, you're going to do this for me or you're going to do
that for me.
Right? What are you going to say?
Who do you think you're
right? Who do you think you are? Even if it's a favor that you're asking me? Who do you think you are to come and impose? Right? You're gonna say Say please. Right? You don't have the right to come and impose your will or your wish on me. Right? So imagine someone doing that with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada imposing upon Allah azza wa jal, who, Allah who Allah should forgive or should not forgive. So Allah subhanho wa Taala this person earned the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal said
Allah subhanaw taala then turned to the sinner, and he said, Go to Jana. Go to paradise.
By My Mercy, by my grace, I send you or sentence you to paradise.
And Allah said to the other the promises and didn't even say to the abbot to the worshiper, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, what are the little AHA
because now he's a bad or his title or the status that he had became irrelevant. Now. What caused a little error? And the prophets I send them said, Allah said to the other.
Pay attention to this. Right. The prophesied Salam said Allah said to the Silla, go to Jana.
By my grace and mercy, I sentence you to Jana, I forgive you. And Allah said to the other meaning, the one that used to be known as what the worshiper or the devout
It has to be Ilana. Allah didn't even address him. Allah subhana wa Tada said, take him to hellfire.
Now I know someone may find this troubling, keep in mind that enamel Amell will be how Artemia right? What will decide your faith is your final last action. What was the sinners final, final and last action?
He was committing a sin.
This person came and started basically yelling at him and scolding him, right.
And then he said to him,
you know, this is between me and Allah, meaning his heart turn towards who? towards Allah.
In a state of what
hope, hope this is between me and Allah subhanaw taala you're not watching over me. I'm not gonna do this or quit this or do this for your sake. You know? So this was his final moment. His final moment was that his heart turned towards Allah subhanaw taala he didn't know he was dying.
You know, the other guy what happened to him?
He lost his humility at that moment, he became offended. Right? His ego was hurt. And he's he was upset. And he said, Well Hola, hola. Hola. Hola. You talk back to me, ALLAH SubhanA. Allah will not forgive you or Allah will not allow you to intergender he uttered a word that he had no permission, no authority, a word that reflects a level of ego and arrogance and pride that was in his heart. Right. And the process seldom said
a person may utter a word that displeases Allah
isodiol Because of which Allah subhanaw taala nullifies all of their action, and because of which they go to hellfire. And that was the last thing that he said shortly after that, or immediately after that they both died.
Right? And Allah subhanaw taala held both of them accountable to what was in their hearts. And that is why it is very important that we know our boundaries and our limits, and that we don't cross these limits. And that so Now someone might say, okay, so if I see someone doing something wrong, Should I just leave them alone? No.
Advice them, give them advice, right? admonish them gently, humbly, not for your sake. But for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala remind them of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and do not hold them in contempt.
In your heart, don't despise him. Because Allah subhanaw taala may spiritually cure them and purify them. And you know, fate may your fate may be that you will be ruined. Right? You never know. Humbly. Right? Humbly and compassionately advise the person and tell them what you're doing is wrong. This may earn you the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa taala. You don't want to do this, Allah Subhana Allah Allah is Most forgiving, you know, and do it in a in a gentle fashion. Right? Without saying Allah will not forgive you, Allah subhanaw taala was burning and hellfire, what you're doing is wrong, what kind of person are you? And so on and so forth. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam
and I conclude with this one time, when one of the companions cursed a person who was committing
a major sin over and over again multiple times, the prophesy said have said, sup?
Don't say stuff like this. Do not assist or aid shaytaan Don't be an assistant have shaytaan against your brother. Right? So our job is to compassionately write with humility, help each other correct our mistakes and and repent to Allah and turn back to Allah azza wa jal. Our mission is to endear Allah, right? To our brothers and sisters. Right? If you have more knowledge, you are supposed to endear Allah subhanaw taala you are supposed to help people love Allah subhanho wa Taala you're supposed to help people turn to Allah azza wa jal, right, and we need to be careful not to speak with an authority that we don't have. Right? So I ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us our sins
and ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide all of us. I ask Allah azza wa jal to guide all of us for all of us are sinners. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala who said in his book, that say to my servants who have sinned and wrong themselves, not to despair or to give up on my mercy, right? Oh Allah we turn to you, hoping for your mercy and for your grace so Allah forgive us or Allah forgive us our sins or Allah forgive us our sins and purify our hearts and help us overcome our weaknesses. And our shortcomings. Is sha Allah to Allah we still have one more there interesting episode, the finale inshallah Allah of our Chronicles, join us next week. Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
