Hola, coup, de coeur de como de la ku beckon woman nuclear ala rasulillah hufa defassa fosun A Lima, we think in phrase Allahu subhana wa Tada, our Lord and Master and creator, the one true God. We think Allah for all of his bounties and blessings upon us. We ask Allah for forgiveness for all of our shortcomings and mistakes, and lapses in judgment. We ask Allah for guidance and we ask Allah to keep us steadfast upon guidance. And we ask Allah to shower, our beloved messenger with compliments
and salutations, along with his family and his companions and all of those who follow his sooner his tradition, until the end of time. May Allah make us of those who listen and recite the urn, who recite and listen to the urn, and are moved by it and live by it. May Allah make us of those who are in love with the messenger in his tradition, and who adhere to it.
Allahu subhanahu, WA tada in dozens of places in the world and calls out to all mankind, all people of all walks of life. And then in other places in the Quran, Allah makes the same call, but specifically to people who have received scripture. And then again, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes the same call specifically to the believers. And in all of these different calls Allahu subhana wa tada is encouraging us to have Taqwa of him, is encouraging us to have consciousness and awareness and fear of the displeasure of Allah. piety. That is to fulfill what Allah commanded and to abstain from what he has forbidden. That is tough what that is righteousness, and we are living in the
month, where we are expected to attain an increase in taqwa May Allah make us of those who exit this month, people of taqwa
and considering this time that we are in how amazing is it and how important is it for us to pause for a moment and just feel so grateful to Allah subhana wa tada that we're here right now that we are gathered in a place where our last name is mentioned, where his messengers name is mentioned, not only with blessing people in a blessed place, but on a blessing date. Allah subhana wa tada has preferred this day of Joomla over all of the other days of the week. And on top of that preference, we are in the greatest month of the year, Allah has preferred the month of Ramadan over the other months of the year. So Allah subhana wa tada has allowed us to witness this month of Ramadan and be
gathered here on these special occasions. That requires an necessitates from
us to be moved to be grateful to rejoice with the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala and our messenger Allah His salatu wa sallam. He was very cognizant of being in these types of special moments. He realized how important they were in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated to us by the companion, Abu hooray Allah, Allahu Allah, Allah and he said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ascended his pulpit to deliver his message to the community. And he had three steps that he was right, he was as he would rise up to the station where he would stand from
what sort of law used to do that all the time. But on this particular occasion, he did something different that the companions didn't see him do before, when he took the first step, but also to law, his sort of law where it was seldom said, I mean, just like that, they didn't know what he was saying. I mean, for he just said, out loud, he then proceeded to take the next step. And again, he said out loud, I mean, he then took the third step, and out loud repeated yet again. I mean,
and the Sahaba are observing. Then they asked him later, they said, O Messenger of Allah, what caused you to say those words and behave in such a way? We didn't see you do that before? They were so curious, you know why? You know why they were so curious, because they loved little sort of law here. So the longer it was in them,
they were so aware of every small action and statement that he would make, that if it was something new or different, they immediately wanted to know what he did that because they loved him. Because they, because they trusted him because they wanted to follow him.
So they asked the Messenger of Allah and he said, Attorney Djibouti, and he said, jabril came to me.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to receive Jubilee all the time, and he would interrupt.
And sometimes God will come in the form in the image of another man, and sometimes he would come in His own image and only the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the messenger see the angels in their original form of creation. He said, jabril came to me, so I have I didn't see God they just heard the Messenger of Allah.
And gibreel said to me, Rasul Allah says, He said to him, men born vellum, you will follow for la vida hora now
pull me in, for pulled to me. He said, jabril came to me and said, that person that was alive during Ramadan, they were here. We are not talking about those that have passed, those that have died and have passed away. Allah forgive them and have mercy upon them, fill their graves with light, have mercy upon us. When we are in that position. We're talking about those that are alive You and I, during the days and the moments and the nights of Ramadan.
They are alive for this period of time. And Ramadan comes and passes because it's a portion of time and time doesn't stop for anyone.
So it passes and, and leaves them behind. And they are those that were forgiven in the days and nights of Ramadan. So gibreel made the door up and said they're not forgiven. As a consequence, they end up being punished in the Hellfire May Allah, Allah say,
in the messenger said amin
gibreel, the greatest of angels made it and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the greatest of Allah's creation said I mean to that.
What does that mean? What is the definition of it? It means Allahumma statue of Allah answer.
The greatest of Allah angels is saying, the one who witnessed the days and nights of Ramadan and did not achieve forgiveness from Allah. And that causes them to be of those punished in the Hellfire Allah save us from his punishment. So push them far away of Allah. And the messenger said, I mean to that.
The next to mean that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, were of a similar nature gibreel said, the one who is alive during their parents lifetime, but they do not behave towards them due to fully with obedience and kindness and goodness. And they are not forgiven due to their goodness to their parents. So they end up being punished in the Hellfire a lot push them far away, see mean? And the Prophet said mean? And the third time gibreel said the one who your name Oh, Mohammed is mentioned in front of them, but they do not by sending compliments and salutations upon you.
And they're not forgiven because of that. And they end up being punished in the Hellfire a lot push them away, say I mean and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said I mean, the common denominator between these scenarios is that there are opportunities
He's to be completely forgiven. opportunity of opportunities that Allah subhanaw taala gives us to clean the slate.
And when those opportunities are not taken advantage of an A person meets the wrath and punishment of Allah because they did not seize those opportunities, then they will be pushed far away. May Allah always keep us close to his mercy.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recognized the weight of these opportunities, and these moments, the forgiveness of Allah, what more can we ask for? Just imagine somebody is carrying a physical heavyweight. Imagine I gave you a backpack, and I strapped it to your body 50 pounds. And you had to walk around with that weight every single day of your life. You went to sleep and it was strapped on you. You will, thinking, Oh, I had a nice refreshing sleep, you first move you make you feel the weight of that strap to you. Everywhere you go, you're, it's strapped to you. You want to sit down and eat. It's in your way. It's cumbersome. It's you're carrying everywhere you go. Perhaps
if we adjusted our attitude and our mindset, so that we felt that way about our poor choices. So we felt that way about our mistakes, then we would want and appreciate and yearn for the forgiveness of Allah so we can shed that load off of our backs. So we can walk.
There'll be extra bounce in our step, we'd feel that gravity is doing less work on us, because we've been relieved of this burden. The truth of the matter is, we are walking around with the burdens of our poor choices. And Allah subhana wa tada has blessed us to witness a season, a period of time where all of that can be removed and taken off our backs. We no longer have to drag it with our ankles. That is the forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we think about forgiveness, when we think about wanting to achieve that, from Allah subhana wa Tada. Sometimes, some folks may feel that it's out of reach for them. You don't know what I've done. You don't know how bad my mistakes
are. You don't know how many times I've repeated the same mistake you
some people may have those kinds of attitudes. And those are directly inspired by shavon. Because she alone does not want us to be of those that are forgiven by Allah subhanho data. So we want to ask the question, how, what can I do? What steps can I take so I can be relieved of this burden of my mistakes and my poor choices? The times I've fallen for my desires and had lapses in good judgment. And we learn how to do that so simply and so beautifully and practically, from the story of the Beloved Prophet of Allah Moosa. But even before he became a prophet and messenger when he was Muslim in Milan, one of the community members of Benny Islam he who so happened to be fortunate
enough to grow up in the most luxurious home in the land don't today as Egypt, Allahu Subhana. Allah tells us and sort of puzzles in chapter 28 What the hell Medina tala Heaney have let him in earlier. So what are the Fiala Giulini yakata. Thielen has I mean she it he will have I mean I do with first the author hula demon she it here I mean I do we
suffer a lot early
on I had Amina Emily she's one in the who I do when Mobley lumu
Allah Subhana Allah says Moosa when he reached maturity and strength, he he grew up, he no longer wanted to be confined by the four walls of the Verona compound and zip code. You want it to go out, go out on the town, go out in the city, see what people are doing in their lives. So he went out into the city center, where there was usually hustle and bustle, but he entered at a time of inattention. Most people were not around, sleeping, resting, they were not out on the street.
And he stumbled upon two men that were fiercely fighting one another Jaco chatillon. One of them happened to be from his ethnic group, from the people of Venezuela, who were a people in that land and at that time, persecuted, oppressed, subjugated,
fairly mistreated and abused. That was the norm and the status quo in that time and civilization. And the other man was one of the people of the aristocrats from the ethnic group of the ruler, same skin tone and same language, and same level of privilege.
And so, the man from vinius Lane recognizes Moosa, that's the most urban or Emraan that's my thought. He is the author who he cries out to him with such desperation. So as to say if you don't help me, I will be destroyed. This man's going to kill me. Immediately, Moosa intervenes. He steps into that situation. He wants to break up this fight and this quarrel, but he does so with such haste and with such passion
He struck the man from the people of Egypt with a closed fist what cuz a lot of batubulan million. It was not a strike that was intention to do any severe damage, but just to push him away and end that fighting, and yet that man died.
He died from a strike that doesn't usually kill a person.
And Moosa never intended for that man to die. Moosa was the first one that was shocked and taken aback by the power of his own strike. Immediately he says, but I had I mean, I'm any shade one, you know, who I do want to move in shaylen is involved in this affair. He has a clear enemy who wants to lead a straight, what has happened here.
Some people say,
with negligence and with ignorance, oh, the story when Moosa murdered that men that's not appropriate murder, entails malice, and entails an intention. Moosa never intended to be married earlier, my older scholars have agreed Moosa never intended for that meant to die. It was accidental, but still it was a grave and serious matter. It was a mistake. So what did Moosa do? Immediately, he said, I'll be in need of lm two NFC for fiddly for her falana. Immediately Moosa responds with admitting his mistake, admission of guilt. That is the first step for us to be relieved of the burdens of our poor choices. We have to admit when we've made a mistake. The antonym
the opposite of that is to be in a state of denial. And that is disgusting. And it is destructive. And it impedes any type of growth or development.
Especially when we talk about mistakes that are being repeated over and over again. And when a mistake is being repeated over and over and over again, we start to think, is that just a simple mistake? Or is it a pattern of behavior? Is it just a mistake? Or is it an addiction?
Is this person stuck in an addictive cycle? And if that's the case, then we learn from the professionals of the field, that deal with therapy and getting over addictions and bad behavior patterns. It is important
to move on from those behavior patterns and addictions when a person is in a state of denial. Oh, there's nothing wrong with me. It's just a mistake. Yeah, I'll be fine. It doesn't work like that. Our brains and our bodies are wired in a certain way, that when they fall into certain cycles of behavior patterns, something has to come and interrupt that cycle.
We have to relearn how to rewire ourselves, so we don't fall into the same pattern of behavior.
And we, if we are in denial,
that is why Moosa one of the greatest people to walk in the face of this earth, and not just most of them and how we're where we came from our father and mother, when they made that mistake.
Santa Elena with a hammer and akuna in the middle has seen the greatest human beings to walk in the face of this earth. All our mistakes.
No, hon Allah He said on the near the weekend, as Emily said, he be hearing
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our messenger teaches us to make the Dharma he taught aboubaker say this door at the end of every sutra,
to have seen what a monkey or what I do know about Allah And
so, so much alive made so many mistakes,
the impact in there and the consequences of my poor choices of Allah.
That's why I'm asking you for forgiveness from you, especially Oh Allah, because Allah if you don't forgive me and have mercy upon me, I'll be of the losers. I'll be of those destroyed. All of the greatest human beings that were sent to this earth to be our teachers and our role models. They taught us to admit our mistakes. And yet we are in a state of denial.
And there cannot be Toba. There cannot be repentance in denial. What kind of apology is it when someone apologizes, but with an attitude and they say, I didn't do anything wrong, but sorry. Take this sorry. They just throw it on our lap like it's something
to hear sorry. Nobody likes those kinds of apologies. The apology that you want to hear when someone wrongs you is Look, I messed up, I made a mistake. That wasn't right. You deserve better. I'll try to do better. I apologize. Please forgive. Those are the kinds of apologies that matter.
Likewise, seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala must be accompanied with admission of mistake. That's the first thing Moosa did. And that's the first step to forgiveness. The second thing he did.
Thought or belief he really forgot for Allah. He asked for forgiveness. He made
He asked a lot better for forgiveness. He called out hobby,
lobby to letters.
What does this word mean? It means my Lord, I Master, my Creator, my sustainer my nourisher a lot didn't just create us and let us go and live in this world to
have other particles decide our fate. No, Allah created us and Allah is involved and aware of every minute of our lives. Could Leo mean who officia and hub it implies all of that, my Lord, my master, my Creator, my sustainer and nourisher and the one that I will return back to the one that owns me. I am owned by Allah subhanaw taala by my Creator, hub, it is a word that has love. It is a it is a title that we call out to Allah subhana wa tada that implies that we are yearning for Allah subhana wa Tada.
When is the last time that when we felt the shame of our mistakes, we felt the confidence in Allah's mercy to call out to Him yellow, automatic maranoa stuff it'll it will call minisite Mc michelina Minister sulfuryl repent to Allah for he is the most forgiving, Most Merciful, and please come forward as much as you can and fill in all the gaps in front of you.
hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala Milena v abeja Allahumma salli wa sallim wa
barik ala Sayidina Habibi. Now Muhammad Ali. He was, he was a limited Sleeman kathira but Allahu wa barakaatuh ida was sleeping and living in a hotel kita Bamiyan cubberly como iya come any taco la? After thanking and praising Alon beseeching him to shower our beloved messenger with compliments and salutations, Allah subhana wa tada in the poor answers we have commanded the nations and communities who received scripture before you and you oma or Anne and you own of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to have Taqwa of Allah. The Universal timeless message from Allah for all nations and communities is to have awareness and God consciousness. Be aware that Allah subhana wa tada is aware
of your thoughts and statements and actions at all times. So we learn from the beautiful messenger of Allah Moosa to admit our mistakes, number one, number two to call up to Allah subhana wa Tada. Immediately after falling into a mistake, and urine and asking beg Allah for his forgiveness, and if we have wronged others, then ask them for forgiveness, as well. And the third thing that we learned from Moosa as we continue reading in the iTunes, so tell us, we see that most early Sam said, I'd be, again he calls out to his Lord and Master, I'd be be met, and I'm Talia Phelan akuna, over here on little moogerah mean, he says, Oh Allah, you've bestowed so many gifts and blessings and bounties
upon me, because of that, Oh Allah, because of my gratitude to you, Oh Allah, I will never be an assistant to criminals or their criminal activity. He made a promise, he made a pledge, he made a commitment to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he will embark on a pattern of change, that he will behave differently, that he will do things differently. He made a commitment for change. Many times, we want to just ask Allah for forgiveness, but then we continue behaving in the exact same ways.
There is a deficiency in that repentance. May Allah accept all of our repentance. But in order for us to be fully sincere, we have to be committed to behave differently. And if we don't know how to behave differently for victory in quantum latter element, we go to the professionals, we go to those that are knowledgeable and we say, I want to change this pattern of behavior. I want to kick this habit I want to kick this addiction helped me and guide me and show me the steps that I need to go through to get therapy from my mistakes, and from my poor patterns of behavior. That is a true tilba that is a true and sincere repentance that Allah has promised to answer because when Moses said what
Bill fiddly, and he committed Allah Subhana Allah to Allah said, behalf Allah Allah, Allah subhana wa tada forgive him and concealed and protected Masada he said on when people wanted to come and kill him because of that mistakes. Mistake Allah has some kind of data saved him. Naja who love him you know told me of it means mean. Allah subhana wa tada saved him from the actions of the wrongdoing and oppressive people. That is what happens when we have the mouthfeel of Allah subhana wa tada and that is what we hope to achieve. That is what we hope to exit this month of Ramadan with. We hope that we end this month being people that Allah subhana wa tada has forgiven and if we
are those that Allah has forgiven, there is nothing more in this universe that we can ask for. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make to Allah.
Allow us to be of those who exit this month mo 14, completely forgiven. And before I conclude, I just want to share my true feelings for being so happy to be in this place and with you all. And to be in a place that Allah subhana wa tada has inspired and given tofield to be able to do so many projects, and help so many people. One of the ways that we can earn Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness. And his mercy is by supporting acts and actions and projects that continue to do good for other people. That is one of the things that along with some panels to add a loves. And that is one of the actions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, increased in Ramadan in his
generosity, think of the projects that this institution that we are blessed to be a part of, and be here for think of the different projects that they are embarking on and the lives that are being touched. The the young people, the students who are being impacted, who are being redirected, to have a better lifestyle, who are being redirected to know who Allah is, and who has messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is those are the types of projects that are coming out from this place. And this institutions and the hearts that are here, what law he that is deserving of our support that is deserving of our that is deserving of our charitable contributions. May Allah
Subhana Allah make us of those that are inspired and move to give and be charitable and be generous. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those whose names are written on the list of those who support ongoing acts of goodness, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the best of this life and the best in the hereafter. We ask Allah to save us from the torment of the hellfire. We ask Allah to make us of those who listen and follow the best of what they hear. lomatium fusina taqwa was a kiya antihero menza entirely you have Wilma Willa Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed Kamal solita Ibrahim Ibrahim in nica Jaime de Majeed, Rebecca Muhammad Ali Mohammed gamma Baraka Ibrahim Ibrahim inaka
