We begin by thanking and praising Allah subhana wa tada the Most Merciful, the most majestic, the most perfect the Most High. We seek His forgiveness, we seek His guidance, we seek his aid and assistance, and we seek refuge in protection and Allah subhanho wa Taala. From the evil within ourselves from the evil around us and from the evil consequences of our poor choices. We bear witness that no one is worthy of worship except Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And we bear witness that Mohammed our beloved messenger and leader is the last and final prophet and messenger and
servant of Allah we begged A lot of times, where Mohammed Salah mercy and blessings and his family and his companions and all those who follow his tradition, until the end of time, Allah subhana wa tada informed us that he has prescribed fasting in this month, so that we can attain taqwa, our gathering here today. One of its purposes is to remind one another to renew our taqwa our awareness of Allahu subhana wa Tada, our consciousness and our fear of the displeasure and the punishment of Allahu Subhana. Who want to add, in this month, we are making so much
or at least we should be. And many people are praying and crying out and calling out to Allah for a variety of different things. One of the most repeated do as that is made this month, whether it's in the congregational due out in whichever port or whether it's on an individual level is for forgiveness.
We are asking Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us of our shortcomings of our sins of our poor choices of our mistakes of our wrongdoing.
And we should be doing that this month.
Those of us that are engaging in that they're glad tidings to you.
But Isn't it ironic And isn't it strange? And isn't it inappropriate? That we are begging Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness.
I know it's added throughout the Quran spoke about fo
to forgive and forget and pardon. He talked about suffering, to turn a new page to start from a new seal to the false so many different words that are used to address the same concept of forgiveness because it is so powerful and it is so important. Let us spend a couple of minutes reflecting over the life of our dear beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Let's begin at the beginning. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is born in Mecca,
in his community and in his society.
The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam then receives revelation. He is commanded to remind his people to worship Allah alone and only alone.
He is not seeking any compensation from them. He's not seeking their wealth. He is not seeking their praise. He is not seeking authority over them.
He wishes to call them to that which is for their own benefit and he does so.
They responded by mocking him.
They responded by ridiculing him they responded by accusing him. They called him a liar. They called him a sorcerer. They called him a poet. They called him insane.
They forced those that were married to his daughters to divorce his daughters. They dumped filth outside of his door. Not only that, they dumped filth on top of his own body as he placed his head on the ground, worshiping none but Allah. They killed his companions. They tortured his companions. They isolated them they boycotted them economic boycott, societal boycott.
They took from their wealth.
They forced other tribes not to do business with them to cut them off.
Eventually, the prophet SAW Selim and his companions have to migrate. They have to leave Mecca so that they can actually worship Allah
in peace, and they did so.
Eight years pass and eventually the Prophet sallallahu Sallam returns to Mecca 21 years after he received revelation 21 years after everything changed for him in his society.
And he went and he purified
The character from the false idols, and he made the life and he worshipped a lot. And then he called out to the people of Mecca. And he asked them a question. And he said, What do you think I'm going to do to you today?
After all that pain and all that hurt
all those wounds, all those lives, all that wealth,
all those insults, 21 years.
You think he forgot about them? And in his salatu salam, he did not forget.
What about his own uncle and brother from nursing that was not only killed but whose body was mutilated? Do you think he forgot about Hamza? He did not forget about Hamza.
What do you think I will do of weakness, the last people from Mecca that did not accept Islam, they realize now
that they no longer have the upper hand. And so they pleaded actually, they didn't even have the guts to play. They spoke in the most passive of tones possible. They said ignore Korean, in Korean,
a righteous and generous brother,
son of a righteous and generous brother of ours.
That's all that we know of you.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is her boyfriend tomato law.
No revenge today.
We won't make you pay for all that you did in the past. Go now you are free. Whoever stays inside their house, they're safe. Whoever stays in the house of Abu sufian. They're safe. Anyone who wishes to accept Islam, you are safe. Today is not the day of revenge. Today is not the day of taking back what you took from us in the past. Today is the day of forgiveness.
That was the attitude that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam displayed to those that had hurt him so deeply.
What about use of Allah His Salaam,
another beautiful messenger whose story is told to us in the Quran, one of the most beautiful and loved stories in the Quran. Very quickly, Yusuf is born his father is a prophet who is the son of a prophet who is the son of a prophet. They are the descendants of Ibrahim Yusuf has 11 brothers.
But he's so beautiful. And his father loves him so much.
So much so that his father tells him, don't share this dream that you have with your brothers. Because they already have these feelings of jealousy and envy, it's going to ignite those feelings even more.
But those feelings were their own.
were far far away. Maybe somebody's passing by, we'll find him and take him and he'll be out of your lives once and for all.
jealousy, envy, by an enemy No, by a blood brother.
And the years and the decades past, he is sold as a slave. He is then plotted against again, he is thrown into prison. He shows kindness to his soulmates what they forget him again.
Until eventually, years and years later, he finds himself at a position of authority and his own brothers come to forgive.
Allahu Subhana. Allah says, What interval what else for who?
For in the law have a photo of him. If you do, if you erase if you forgive, if you don't suffer if you start a new page and move on, start from a new if you do Murphy's Law, if you can see all the faults of those that have done you wrong, then you will find a law to be the most forgiving, the Most Merciful, along with some penalties spoke about spouses
and wife that are having marital discord in you read. If you are feeling La Habana Houma if they want a slash, if they want that relationship to be rectified, if they want those rooms to be mended, allow will give them success in what they are seeking.
But if they're out to get the other person
that is not a situation where they will be
where they will be rectification it can't happen that way. There has to be an intention and a desire and a strength to overcome the pain to overcome the glitches to overcome the wounds and said I will forgive why because Allah is the most forgiving and I need allows forgiveness.
Allah says in the Quran, that for you to forgive and to overcome, it's better. It's the best thing that you could possibly do in your relationships.
But forgiveness is not easy.
Maybe it's easy for some people, but for many it's very difficult. And the deeper the
wa salatu salam, ala Nabi rabada. A lot of Muslim Lee was certainly more and more baddeck LSAT, you know, when I've been our Habib, you know, Amina Mohammed Sall Allahu Allahu Allah alayhi wa sallam.
When we talk about forgiveness,
there are two aspects to the equation.
Which are people, all people.
I'm going to be passing soon and I will leave behind many of you. And as I mentioned, to Jenna to the hora, whoa, hurry, if I have any of you on your backs, here is my back. Come and take your pain.
Oh man come to Tula humara Sahaja. Molly, whoever I've taken from their wealth, he was my wealth now take from it.
And I'm going to share them to the
elderly. And if I have cost to harm any of you in your honor has my honor in front of you take take your pay back.
And don't be worried about any evil consequences.
It's fair and square
Leilani for an update or a bonus, or that you forgive me and free me
from from the boundaries and the bindings of wronging you so that I can meet my Lord and I will be content. Who was this speaking this is also the lives of a lot.
Wrong anyone? but yet he understood.
He understood the evil impact of oppression. He's the one that taught us a whole mahalo Martin, yo Kiana. oppression is layers of darkness. On the day of judgment. We are begging Allah, we are fasting, we're praying, we're giving sadaqa we're doing all of this. But how can we expect to meet Allah seeking the reward for all of these actions? When somebody else is actually going to be taking all of these rewards? Because we've wronged them,
the prophesies or as the companions
list? Do you know who the bankrupt person is? Well, you know, economics teaches us that the bankrupt person is the one whose expenditures are higher than their income. But the prophet SAW Selim said, No, the Muslim is the bankrupt person is the one who comes on the Day of Judgment, with prayer, with fasting, with charity, with good deeds with hedge with their own law, but they cost that person and they hate that person. And they cheated that one and they lied to us one. And so they will come in the Day of Judgment, and their deeds will be distributed to all of those people that they had wronged until they will have nothing left to give.
And if they still owe more people, than they will then take the burden of those people since.
This is a reminder of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam experienced sadness.
But then he experienced happiness and amazement and wonder. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us of two men
on the day of judgment will be kneeling before Allah subhana wa Taala
and one of them will call out to Allah and say, Oh Allah, take my right for me from this man.
In wronged me
and I never got my right back.
And Allahu subhana wa tada will call out take from the good deeds of this man and give it to the was a part of Jenna to this man.
And he sees the palaces and the rivers and the blessings of Jenna and ask Allah Oh Allah, for whom is this Jenna? What? Maybe what murderer? What? This job?
And Allah Subhana Allah will say this gentleman is for whoever is willing to pay the price of it and he will say what is the price or law the law will say you have the price, you have the currency to pay the price. And the man will say how, what do I have? And the law will say, forgive your brother.
It is what you will earn
with forgiveness. It seems so small but it is so powerful
and yearn for that gentleness, so much.
He will forgive his brother and the law will say, Take your hands and go into the agenda together.
the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is so vast,
but between one another, we have shortcomings between each other.
it's not a hotbed to stroke anyone's ego.
It's not a hotbed to just come out from and say I feel good. I'm a Muslim today hamdulillah
