All praises due to Allah. We praise Him we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, Nan can guide I bear witness that Nan has the right to be worshipped. No one has the right to our ultimate love and devotion except Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, who has no partners and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ali, he was selling them his his servant, and His messenger. Or you who believe fear Allah as you should be feared and die not accept as Muslims in a state of submission to your
Creator, or mankind, be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person. And from him he created his wife and from them both, he created many men and women, and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kinship. Surely Allah is Ever and all water over you, or you who believe keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best speech are the words of Allah. And the best guidance is that on Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was selling them. And the worst thing in the
religion or the newly invented matters, and all the newly invented matters are innovation and every innovation and religion is misguidance. And every misguidance leads to the hellfire.
The humans that are dearest to Allah subhanho wa Taala that are closest to Allah subhanaw taala the ones that Allah loves most the ones that Allah Shah was with his mercy.
They have certain qualities and descriptions and we've been discussing them, taking them from the book of Allah from the very words of Allah, to see how the Quran does offer us a complete and comprehensive way of life. A very beautiful system to live this life by. And it's not an alien system and it's not a system that is forced onto us. It is a system that we were born and designed according to in the first place. So this we have it originally in our fitrah as a seed and they will live in the Revelation, the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
They are the nutrition they are the water they are the they are the element that causes the seed to grow and to become ripe and to give its own fruits. And this is why the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'm sorry Muslim the hadith is reported by her the familiar man. He said in a man Atlantis that fee January Apolo Girija, indeed the Amana the trust, and that's the football and that's belief in Allah and that's love of Allah. And so let's regenerate blueberry JAL. It has been planted, it's been put right at the core of the hearts of human beings.
So we have this fitrah we have this belief in Allah, this love for Allah and this submission to Allah we have it in our core in our hearts. In a man Atlanta's that featured variable
Lubert region from Alamo mineral Quran and Sunnah then they came to learn and they came to know about the signs or the verses of the Quran, and the statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The commentators on this hadith they say that humans as the Prophet SAW Selim said in the Hadith reported by Buhari and one Muslim Kulu, they knew that we added fetlock
each new bone is born upon the foot rock, and ignorant vessel the Allahu Anhu said Al Fatah is the religion of Islam. So we are all born Muslim every human being is born with Islam is born with a love of Allah is born with recognition of Allah is born with submission to Allah. And there's a natural longing in every heart towards Allah subhanaw taala. And that's the essence of worship. And that's the essence of Tawheed and that's the essence of la ilaha illa Allah. So the Quran and the Sunnah as the commentators in this hadith like Imam an nawawi say, they say that the what you find in the words of Allah, and then the guidance of the prophets, Allah, what He was sending them, are
the pure elements that cause your fitrah to grow, and for you to become a Muslim, and for you to become a complete human being a perfect human being. So Islam is not alien to human nature. Islam is not something that is foreign to human nature that we are supposed to force into ourselves. It's not how it works. Islam is our very nature, Islam is very, our very essence. And part of this revelation, which is what we have been discussing and talking about in the last few quarters. And that's basically taking from the end of Surah Al Furqan. The description that Allah subhanaw taala gives about a bad man, the servants of the Most Merciful, the ones that Allah loves the most. Allah
has given us the description, how these people live, how they carry themselves, how they behave, what's what about their public life? What about their private life, what's on their minds, what's in their hearts, what are the actions, Allah subhanaw taala is giving us a comprehensive description and this is what we have been discussing. And this kind of description is supposed to awaken within us, that kind of longing to Allah, that kind of loyalty to Allah, that kind of truthfulness to Allah, that kind of authenticity to Allah subhanaw taala, without which we cannot be true to Allah, we cannot. And if you notice from the description of the hypocrites, then we're now 15 From the
early times of the Muslim ummah, and until today, there will always be there. These people seem to be practicing Islam, externally, seemingly, they are practicing Islam and they are doing the prayers that during the fast and sometimes you know, they dressed up like Muslims, they look like Muslims, etc. But these people within them are the filthiest hearts in existence.
Because they do not implement the Quran and the Sunnah from their hearts. The hearts are not with Allah.
They're not translating the sutra and bringing it into a reality.
Rather, they are approaching Islam from an external standpoint. So they're just doing the going through the motions for the sake of other than Allah subhanho wa taala, whatever motive they have. And these are the hypocrites, so they show Islam they display Islam externally, but inside deep inside, they don't have this love for Allah, they don't experience it, they don't feel it. It doesn't impact their actions, their attitudes, their behaviors, their emotions, it doesn't do anything to them. So that fitrah is somehow dead or domains.
And that's why when they are reminded of the words of ALLAH,
of the words of the Quran, or the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They turn away from them as Allah subhanaw taala described them.
When they aren't invited to the words of Allah, they turn away from them. Why because it's not coming from their heart. It's a matter of intellectual approach to Islam, whereas the hearts are averse to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Whereas the believers, and we will send you a lot one of their descriptions today is that they approach Allah with the heart, first and foremost. And this is why their actions follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And any approach to Islam because that's the way of the Prophet SAW Selim any approach to Islam that doesn't follow this kind of formula, this kind of system
then it has a lot of issues within it. And people have to correct themselves if they have fallen short, in this regards. So we mentioned previously, as it said, different aspects of their lives and the last thing we mentioned was the core of them. The most important thing about them is that they worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah alone will have been allowed to own Mr. Allah here.
So the only worship Allah alone we explained what the meaning of worship it is, and then it comes from law
It comes from that loyalty from that connection to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and then it also breeds some good traits, what I have to learn enough solidity, Hardwell, Allah Who elaborate half they do not kill, they do not take away human soul that Allah has sanctified, and Allah has protected and Allah has dignified.
And we said, the basic rule in Islam is that life is sacred. Every life in secret is sacred. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even says in the authentic hadith, frequently that it can be did not but in Agile, in every living creature, you have a potential for reward if you take care of it.
Any animal and even insects if you don't harm it,
and if it needs help you offer the help the Prophet SAW Selim is saying there is agile and there is reward in this, if you couldn't do that, it can be done wrong, but in Agile.
So, like even the life of animals and insects and insects is sanctified, unless they cause some harm, unless they come subsequent some illness or some damage or some disease, then they have to be treated accordingly. And this is why the prophets of Salaam in says in the authentic hadith that we know that even a prostitute, a woman who earned her living from selling her body and her honor and selling herself
she saw a dog that was dying of thirst.
So she offered the dog water.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for a color helot region.
This woman because she held that dog.
Allah subhanaw taala entered her into paradise, despite her being what she used to be.
That's how Islam treats life.
And it's not only the physical life, but it's also the spiritual life and that's what you find a lot in the Quran and the Sunnah, as we said, Islam came to protect our lives, physically speaking, and protect and enhance our lives spiritually and emotionally speaking.
So Islam gives life to the body and life to the hearts.
That's what Islam offers us. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala oftentimes describes his words and he describes the Quran, in the Quran as higher, higher as life, life for the body, physical life and life for the huts. Islam offers this offers us this comprehensive approach to life, this comprehensive approach to growth,
that sometimes certain Muslims fail to see that Islam is about growth. It's about growing in every respect, is about becoming a better human being is about approaching this life in an integral fashion, where you reach your highest potential for the sake of Allah. Because whatever potential Allah put inside you is not random. Allah doesn't create things randomly. He doesn't do things randomly. He's al Hakim is the most wise. So everything he creates everything he is he places, everything he times is intended, and there's a purpose behind it.
And if we miss it, and fail to appreciate it and see it, we should not speak against it. We should know our level and our worth.
So this is why when these people worship only Allah subhanaw taala describe that these people do not.
They do not breach the sanctity of the human soul that Allah has dignified, they do not slaughter they do not kill, they do not take away souls, without a justified reason. And these justified reasons are only stipulated by Allah subhanaw taala himself, the giver of life,
what is known and they do not commit adultery. They do not commit Zina because Zina brings death to the hearts and it violates your very human nature. And it violates the purity you have inside. And it breaks the bonds of the family and the brain and the breaks the morality of the people. And there are no nation on Earth, where you find Zina and fornication and adultery widespread, except that you will find these people their humanity is far less. Their morality is far less, their sense of justice is distorted.
And the love for the rest of the humanity is blemished with so much hatred, and so much injustice. Because the human package is one integral parts. Once you violate certain parts of it, the rest of it will be violated as well. It's one complete system.
That's what Allah subhanaw taala says
shows all these different descriptions of the believers, showing that these are in harmony. These are one entity aspects of the same thing of the same human nature, that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to follow and wants us to live our lives according to.
But Allah subhanaw taala knows that he created humans with with weakness, so they will fall.
And they will falter. And they will break the rules, and they will fall for the temptation, and they will fall for the desires, and they will fall for their naps their ego.
And they will violate the rights of Allah, they will violate the rights of other human beings, and they will violate violate the right their own rights, the rights to live a life of dignity and devotion to Allah subhanaw taala. And when a person sins you wrong, none more than yourself and you fallenness in a sense, you are the one who is actually experiencing the biggest or the most amount of damage when you sin because the damage reaches your hearts, reaches your soul and it reaches your body. And it reaches your future sometimes in ways you don't know about.
So Allah subhanaw taala wants us to see how everything blends in together so nicely as a system for worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. So as Allah knows this weakness within humans, that we will fall for the sins, we will fall for the temptation. Allah subhanaw taala says, Anyone who does any of those sins, associating partners with Allah, and then he couples this with murder, and with Zina and adultery, when these people, they will have a punishment from Allah subhanaw taala. And these are the consequences of their actions. By the way. What people experienced on the day of judgment are the consequences of their actions. That's what they that's what their hands have sought, and this is
what they will reap.
Then Allah Subhan Allah says Allah, Allahu wa, OMA, if italic al PATA Therma, you will die for the whole either, we all will pm on the Day of Judgment, these people will receive their punishment doubled and multiplied.
Because our actions as human beings have eternal consequences.
Your actions here, although sometimes they seem petty, they seem small and insignificant. They have eternal consequences. Your actions decide the simple actions you do on a day to day basis.
On a minute to minute basis, these actions have eternal consequences, they define where you will reside eternally.
So don't undermine the power and the potential of one action because this one action could teach you to live eternally in paradise, or to live eternity in the hellfire. So your simple actions that most of the time we don't pay enough attention to have eternal consequences and that's the meaning taken from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Rajala young koban Kenny met him in rebula.
For yet Hello, be heljan We're in a modular the young the Obon Kenny met him in sobre la. Yeah, we be we have a Johanna Sabina Khalifa, a person says one word, one word. And it pleases Allah subhanaw taala because it comes from a heart that loves Allah. He's doing it for the sake of Allah and it's a goodly word.
This word leads him to live in paradise forever. And a person makes a statement or one word.
And this word violates the rights of Allah or the rights of the creation of the rights of the person himself. So it goes against the will of Allah, this person through or via this word, this word will be thrown into the Hellfire by the distance below and down. That is about 70 years.
So this is why our actions have eternal consequences and they are very important. We have to pay attention to them. Before you see a word. Make sure it pleases Allah subhanaw taala and make sure that you're doing it for Allah.
Make sure it's not a sin and it's not doesn't violate the word of Allah subhanaw taala make sure it does not come from a heart that is defiant and rebellious to Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah says these people who commit these grave sins, they will have the punishment doubled on the Day of Judgment via Hulu, the fee Mohana and they the such people will abide in this punishment with humiliation and indignity
then Allah subhanaw taala makes the exception knowing that humans can change. And this is a verse of hope for people I've been stuck with so many sins and so many evil things and an evil lifestyle and trauma traumatized child childhood, whatever you've been through in life you can change and Allah Samantha is making this very clear here he says in our, in our Amina Sonya ilimitado ermine, except for those who repent and repentance is about change. Because you were running away from Allah once you repent, you're coming back to Allah subhana wa to Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam me declare in the Hadith reported by Imam Muslim that Allah in Allah in that little Allahu
Zhou agenda for a whole should do for him Beto but it hadn't come mean it hadn't come Kanopy fella, one that I hold our healer to who I lay hazard who wanna
for Halliburton minha for ASM in her for jealous when Nisha Java and totally remotes
for the mistake of wotja her in the parliament should that will follow Allah whom and to Abdi were an Arab book after I mentioned that.
Allah subhanaw taala is happier when one of you repents to him than a person who lost his way in the desert in the middle of the desert, and he has his camo and on the back of his camel, he has his food and his water.
And the camel ran away.
So he has no hope of escaping of this terrain or this desert. So he came to a point where he was 100% sure of his death and demise that said, I'll be dead, there's no hope that I will survive. So he found a tree and he rested in the shade of the tree. And he slept waiting for his destiny that's expecting his destiny, his death to come.
All of a sudden he opens his eyes to see his camel right by him out of extreme happiness having seen death, haven't had certainty about death and now he sees life.
Out of extreme happiness, he says Oh Allah, you are my servant, and I am your Lord. That's how he says. The Prophet SAW Selim says he made a mistake, because he was confused because of extreme happiness and joy.
So Allah subhanaw taala is happier when one of us change the way and come back to Allah. Allah wants us to repent. And it seems sometimes sometimes, that some people among us they don't want people to repent, because they can only feel good about themselves when they put people down. They can only feel they are right when people make mistakes. So it's all about themselves. It's about I am my who I am.
And let everyone else go to hell.
But that's not what the Prophet sallahu wa sallam told us, the prophets are sudden would cry his eyes at his eyes out for his people. And he would say Allah homophilic O me for inner Homeline Allah moon and that's why he would say Oh ALLAH forgive my people forgive them because they do not know and forgiveness here is a supplication that Allah guides them.
And this is what Allah is meant to describe them. One outsell NACA in Ramadan, I mean, we have sent you but a mercy to mankind. And it seems sometimes for certain cultures, certain orientations within Muslim societies, Muslim countries, Muslim minorities and Muslim communities, it seems that we are doing quite the opposite. Sometimes we become a curse for the people around us, for our family members, for our children, for our spouses, for our parents, for our colleagues, for our friends, follow Muslim brothers and sisters.
And then we give that this guy some Islam, I'm doing this for Islam. I'm doing this because I love Allah.
Some people have a message of hatred, only
a message of hatred
that's not Islam.
No matter how much Hadith and verses you spin over it, that's not Islam.
That's your ego that's your shape on making you use Islam, for your own false assumptions.
You're using the religion of Allah subhanaw taala to meet certain evil needs that are inspired by shapen within you, and you're calling this Islam we have to fear loss.
We have to look at other people with an eye of mercy and love and concern for their guidance because that's the Sunnah of the Prophet SOS and the Sunnah of the Prophet and is not limited to certain things you say
do when you violate everything about the Quran and everything about the Prophet salallahu salam for your own ego and your own shaitan and you call it Islam
because that's the description of the hypocrites Allah subhanaw taala says will either obtain a formula to see to fill out
and when it is said to them, Do not spread corruption, do not spread mischief and trial and fitna on Earth. They will say in a manner mostly horn No, we are bringing goodness we are teaching the truth. Regarding people, we're advising people. And we are enjoying the good and forbidding the evil and you have it at all levels, people declaring other Muslims to be kuffaar people fighting and killing innocent people in the name of Islam, and blemishing the image of Islam and the doing it in the name of Allah.
What crime could be greater than that?
Search your heart if you have hatred towards your Muslim brothers and sisters, hatred, to the guidance of other people happiness, that they are lost so that you can feel good about yourself. Be sure your heart is full of disease and illness, and it's a playground for shapen. Even if you feel good about yourself, because that's not what the Prophet saw us and then came with
a heart that is connected to Allah has only love for the guidance of others.
Only concern for the guidance of others and that they get to worship Allah subhanho wa taala.
So this is why Allah subhanaw taala is showing this about these about the believers that even when they fall into sin, if they happen to fall into sin, they repent Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah is saying these people are exempt. There will be the exception of the punishment of Allah Spinetta because they have corrected their mistakes. This is where Allah Subhan Allah says in them and tab firstly make Toba then repent to Allah. They give up their ways, old ways, and they feel pain and remorse and sorrow for violating the rights of Allah subhanho wa taala. Then they believe that increase the Eman and faith increase the knowledge of Allah, the love of Allah, their knowledge
of the deen of Islam were amela and saleha and they fix their mistakes by doing righteous deeds and increasing unevenness. So they don't say okay, I was wrong, fine. It's over with no you need to fix it and salted Bacara Allah Subhana Allah says Illa Lavina taboo. Wa sallahu wa obiano for Allah to Berlin. Allah mentioned three things Toba taboo. We'll also learn how they fix what they have done because when you create damage, you need to fix it, you're responsible for it. In the livina, taboo also the whole will be general and then they clarify, if they have created misconceptions, if they have given wrong advice. If they had said, slandered someone blemish someone cause damage to
someone, they go and fix it and clarify that this was wrong, and I was wrong, and I wish to fix it. So they free themselves otherwise they will not that repentance will not be complete and will not be accepted by our last panel.
These are the conditions so Allah subhanaw taala saying for hola eco but did Allah was a yachtie in Pasadena. Those people Allah will replace the sins with righteous deeds, because the Toba is far greater than your sin. And this is why what it does, it doesn't only wipe away your sin and that's the Mercy of Allah. It doesn't only wipe away your sin, what it does, it turns it into a hassle. It turns it into a reward because Allah subhanaw taala says and as the Prophet also said, Allah al Shabaab man at the throne and one of the pillars of the Throne of Allah, Allah Allah, it is written in Nara Hemmati Saba kata Ravi, My Mercy has proceeded and has overcome my anger. My Mercy is
greater than my anger. My Mercy is more encompassing than my anger. This is what Allah subhanaw taala is saying about himself. Akula colada was started Allah you want to come included with this stuff
and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad in while he was a Jemaine Allah subhanaw taala says here for these people who repent to Allah, Allah will replace the see as the evil deeds, their sins, with righteous deeds with rewards from him because repenting is very hard, because it means that you do away with your neffs with your ego with your pride, and you submit to Allah subhanaw taala and you acknowledge your mistakes, you acknowledge your fault, we will fault you acknowledge you
weakness, and you seek Allah's help to complete you and perfect you. And this takes humility. This takes moral courage that most people don't display today.
So then Allah subhanaw taala says, What can Allah hoga for Rahima Indeed, Allah is always forgiving and merciful. And we should never forget this about Allah. Allah is always forgiving. Allah is always merciful. And this means we also have to be like this because the prophets of Allah when he was in them said in the hadith
of Rihanna, we have hammered home or rush man, ones who are merciful to the creation Allah will be merciful to them in nama Yamaha Mala, who mean a badly held Rohan that, indeed Allah subhanaw taala is only merciful to the ones that are merciful to his creation.
So these are the names and attributes of Allah that we are supposed to take their meanings and embody them within ourselves.
Then Allah subhanaw taala saying and making it clear on the conclude with this woman, Turbo, I mean, I saw your hand fit in we are doable Elon law he metabo and the one who repents to Allah and returns to Allah and then does righteous deeds, that means correct his mistakes and changes his course and his direction for in who we are to Bukit Allah, He Matoba Indeed, He is repenting to Allah fully.
He has fixed his mistakes, he's changed his ways. He's come back to Allah. And that's the repentance that Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala accepts, and you see, this is something we also should then when someone wrongs you, and they regret it. And they recognize it, forgive them.
Forgive them and let it go, forgive and grow. Don't live by that trauma. Don't hold grudges all your life because it will burn you first. Because hatred and pain kills the person who harbors the most. So when people wronged you, if you can forgive them, forgive them, for the sake of Allah. And that's what the prophets Allah Salam did. That's what the great personalities throughout the history of Islam did. People wronged them. People conspired against them. People lied against them. People accused them in their honor, in their religion, in their truthfulness, in their
honesty and everything. And yet, they said, Matt, ALLAH forgive you. I deal with Allah, I don't deal with the creation. You bring your own essence which is hatred, lying, deception, evil, whatever. And I as a Muslim, who's hot harbors love for Allah. I bring on the love for Allah and I bring it to the creation and I act based on it according to the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah he was, you act based on your essence based on your own material and I act based on my own material, this is how the Muslims should be and your material, your basic fabric is actually love for Allah
and heat for Allah. Because evil is a violation against the law of Allah and we have hatred towards it.
