So let's understand Allah is not going to punish an innocent person. Do you know why he is just if you want to be saved from the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to seek the forgiveness of Allah every day.

00:00:14--> 00:00:45

You need to be in the company of good people. Where do we get this from? Again the Quran, Allah speaks about the co founder of Quraysh. They were harassing the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were doing so much against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And it's so simple to understand that if this is the most loved of creation unto Allah, and you are troubling him, you are harassing him, a lot can wipe you out, right? But Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something amazing. Allah says

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

Allah

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

Allah will not punish them for as long as you are in their midst. Notice how I said you must have good company, it will bring about the mercy of Allah. Your friends must be better than you. Your friends must have language with no F's and Bs Subhan Allah, your friends must speak the truth. They must be upright individuals, they must remind you of Allah, you will never regret that the minute your circle is dirty, you may deserve the punishment of Allah, when your circle is clean, will law he My beloved brothers and sisters, sometimes Allah does not punish us because of one man in our community whom he loves. Evidence of it is this verse, this verse, Allah says, You know what, how

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

can we punish them? When you are there? You are right in their midst, Allahu Akbar. May Allah grant us the love of one another. You never know who is the Valley of Allah. You never know who is the friend of Allah.
