00:00:01--> 00:00:03

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:06--> 00:00:28

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy he woman instead of a Buddha who abandon all praise is indeed due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless every single one of us and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us every form of goodness

00:00:29--> 00:01:14

on the ruler, my beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, as we are all aware, every time the month of Ramadan sets in we are told that the first 10 nights are the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The second 10 are connected to forgiveness, and the third are connected to freedom from the fire. So seeing that we have moved into the nights of forgiveness. inshallah, tonight we will look at the issue of forgiveness and repentance in the Quran. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those who can turn to Him and to make us from those who will be forgiven. If not tonight, then every single night inshallah And may Allah subhanho wa Taala. grant us the ability and

00:01:14--> 00:01:39

acceptance to repent to him on a daily basis. What is very interesting and very important is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was instructed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this instruction was for the messenger himself who was sinless, he did not have any sin. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, he's still feeding.

00:01:42--> 00:02:04

seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala was still Videla. seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala addressing someone who had no sin at all Subhan Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to seek forgiveness between 70 to 100 times every single day.

00:02:05--> 00:02:49

At times even more than that. And yet he did not need that it was only elevation in his status every time he sought repentance, we lose nothing to seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, with us sometimes we are guilty of letting days pass without seeking forgiveness, letting weeks pass, letting months pass and sometimes even the whole year passes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to understand that if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who did not need that forgiveness, sought it in order to elevate his status, then with us who needed surely we follow his path, we will definitely be from amongst those definitely, from amongst those whom

00:02:49--> 00:03:33

Allah's mercy will descend upon. And this is why the issue of forgiveness and the issue of mercy is very closely connected. Whenever we refer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we are starting something when we are doing something, we need to say the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we say the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala we connect it with certain words, listen to what we say. Bismillah R Rahman, you're walking in the name of Allah subhana wa Taala, Most Beneficent, Most Merciful, most forgiving, Most Merciful Subhana Allah. Why is it that Allah taught us to declare his mercy before anything else if he wanted, he could have said say In the Name of Allah, the One whose punishment is

00:03:33--> 00:04:25

extremely severe, he could have said that, but Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to understand that we as human beings should be rotating around the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his mercy and we should constantly be seeking the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is also why the opening verses of the Quran the verses that we read in every Raka of Salah of Surah Al Fatiha Allah subhanho wa Taala decided to declare the names of his which are full of mercy Alhamdulillah he'll be like me in our watchman Rafi. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala Lord of the wills, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful Subhana Allah we repeat it so many times. And now if

00:04:25--> 00:04:43

we take a look at the declaration that Allah subhanho wa Taala asked Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to declare, and all the other messengers were asked to declare the same thing. We would understand the mercy of Allah, we would be so hopeful in that Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Listen to what he says in order to

00:04:45--> 00:04:50

not be a baddie. Me and

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Me inform all my worshipers that I am the most benefits in vivo.

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

Most Merciful, or I am the most forgiving, the Most Merciful Subhana Allah. So it was broadcast to us by Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam that Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful Subhana Allah. Now sometimes people might then decide you know what, he is very forgiving let me do what I want. Then I'll say, Allah forgive me, Allah forgive me he is most forgiving He will forgive me. So Allah subhanho wa Taala equates and balances the statement. He continues to say inform them that I am most forgiving, Most Merciful but let them know what

00:05:39--> 00:05:46

any team and let them know that my punishment is very painful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala never punish us.

00:05:47--> 00:05:53

But that is the declaration and let's listen to another declaration. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Fatiha

00:05:55--> 00:06:00

in the love of Lima.

00:06:09--> 00:06:22

And I am indeed most forgiving. The term is different from the term of farm. A farm is one who is the most forgiving who forgives so often Subhana Allah,

00:06:23--> 00:06:49

Allah says I forgive so often the one who returns to me, the one who turns back to me Subhan Allah and then does good deeds and then is rightly guided Allah says I forgive the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in Allah to Allah boo yah hoo been laelia tuba mercy via Supriya de who been really a tuba mousseline

00:06:50--> 00:06:58

Sham Sumi McGreevy ha, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah stretches his hand of forgiveness, to forgive those

00:06:59--> 00:07:40

meaning during the day to forgive those who have heard during the night, and he stretches the same hand of forgiveness during the night to forgive those who have heard during the day or who have sinned during the day. So Allah subhanho wa Taala stretches that hand. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from his Miss, then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of his promise in Surah Al Baqarah. He says shavon has a promise and I have a promise and it is up to you to follow the promise, the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala is definitely definitely something that we need to be joyful about, because it is the creator, he is telling us a shining

00:07:43--> 00:07:43

moment

00:07:45--> 00:08:04

fatiah shavon is promising you that you are going to become poor. And so he he orders you to engage in in morality or he makes it seem to you that you are going to become poor. So he orders you to engage in immortality while La Jolla.

00:08:08--> 00:08:34

La and Allah promises you forgiveness and and Allah promises you virtue, Allah promises you that he will give you all forms of goodness and he promises you every form of forgiveness. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgive us. Then in another this Allah says and in many places in the Quran, one is in Surah Allah either way, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, y de la de la Vina man huami la salida de la

00:08:35--> 00:08:35

Pharaoh

00:08:37--> 00:08:58

naumi Allah has promised those who believe and do good deeds that for them will be forgiveness and the grand reward May Allah Subhana Allah grant us that reward. So Allah calls out, Allah is calling us towards something What does he call us towards? Listen to what Allah says? What love

00:09:02--> 00:09:36

it when you're on TV evening, Allah calls towards paradise. When Allah commands and instructions come out, they are actually pulling us and lowering us and dragging us towards paradise, if we are to follow them. And Allah says and he is inviting us towards forgiveness, but we need to tell Allah subhanho wa Taala does not forgive the one who doesn't want to tell. He only forgives those who want to turn and who have turned May He grant us a turning point in our lives. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In surah Ibrahim Yoda who commonly

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

become a hero, Camila janym awesome. It is Allah who calls you towards forgiveness. In fact, even the messengers have called us towards seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we have been told that Allah will grant us respect

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

Up to a fixed time after that time, there will be no forgiveness in Allah hyah bellotto Batalla de la mujer de the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah accepts the forgiveness of a worshiper, for as long as they have not got to the point of

00:10:19--> 00:11:00

his, when the soul is departing from the body, and now it has lived most of the body, you can still seek forgiveness when it gets to a point where it is now battling to come out of the throat. And that is a point known as right at the throat. At that last point, no more you cannot seek forgiveness anymore. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us a turning point. And we asked him to forgive us before we die. And we asked him to make the last words as we are leaving this world La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the narration says if you utter those words as your final words, Allah will grant you paradise without reckoning May Allah

00:11:00--> 00:11:26

subhanho wa Taala grant that to us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how merciful he is, that he will never hold against us that which we have done out of forgetfulness, that which we have done out of forgetfulness, complete error, we did something out of error. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I will not hold it against you. Rob Bana law to us even

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

in nesina.

00:11:32--> 00:12:16

Ora, O Allah subhanho wa Taala do not hold against us where we have forgotten or where we have earned out of error, complete error Oblivion, not something intentional when a person commits a sin intentionally now they are battling with Allah subhanho wa Taala they need to engage in Toba and repentance and forgiveness. But with us, we normally say what's the heruka Lima Allah Allah movie? Oh Allah, I seek forgiveness for that, which I don't even know you know, Robin feel for him. What the jawas Amata Allah, Oh ALLAH forgive and have mercy forgive us and have mercy on us. And overlook that which you know, in Nakata, Allah Mallanna Allah you know, that which we don't even know,

00:12:16--> 00:12:28

sometimes we commit a sin without realizing we've committed a sin. It's important we seek forgiveness for those sins as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about forgetfulness, and he speaks about a person who has heard and this

00:12:29--> 00:12:46

I have the Quran, this verse of the Quran is in the form of a DA but Allah says, and this is mentioned in the books of Tafseer. After that, why is mentioned in the Quran that I have done that for you? No problem, I have done it for you. Consider it done. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding of His mercy.

00:12:47--> 00:13:03

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala has instructed us to seek forgiveness listen to what he says. He says, and this verse or these type of verses appear in many sutras Let's mention just a few in Surah to know Allah says what to boo

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

me and I mean Hoon Allah, Allah come to

00:13:11--> 00:13:44

seek forgiveness, seek forgiveness and turn and return to Allah subhanho wa Taala oh you believe so that you can achieve success? So if you want success in your business you need to constantly engage in is the Faria Allah forgive us, Allah. Allah forgive us, you will find Baraka even in your business, you want good health, seek forgiveness, you want a happy home, seek forgiveness, you want happiness in the accurate seek forgiveness, Allah will grant it to you. And there are verses to prove that. Let's continue Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in Surah, Nikita,

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

buena de la la

00:13:49--> 00:13:51

luna who Allah whose

00:13:52--> 00:14:25

name are they not going to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek forgiveness when Indeed Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful? Which means let us turn to Allah when Allah asks us a question that Are you not going to do this? Or are they not going to do that? Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to learn a lesson from that question. And we ask Allah Subhana which Allah to grant us from that. And Allah says in Surah to him, yeah, new Han Latina Amano. Tobu in Allah Hito button.

00:14:26--> 00:14:45

Oh you who believe returned to Allah a genuine returning, when you return to the path and the right path and you go back to Allah in forgiveness, then you should do so genuinely. So that Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive your sins. Then Allah says, I have prescribed upon myself something.

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

You know, Allah prescribes upon us Allah, He prescribes upon us Zakah he prescribes upon us fasting quotevalet como suyama and so on.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

But here Allah says, katha Alana's

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

See here, Ma, lo Akbar Allah says, I prescribe upon myself. Mercy. That's one thing Allah says, Allahu Akbar. And this is why it is important. We never, ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He actually tells us that he has written upon himself that he will have mercy, it is his obligation. Allah subhanho wa Taala has made it obligatory upon himself. No one asked him to do that. He says it himself, I dictate upon myself mercy, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from that mercy. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how important it is to make haste when it comes to seeking forgiveness. You know, Allah gives us a chance, he gives us one chance he gives us

00:15:45--> 00:16:17

another chance to turn to Him and He gives us many chances and he waits. The punishment hangs on our head. When we seek forgiveness, the punishment is averted and diverted. But when we do not seek forgiveness, then the punishment may overtake us and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in many verses of the Quran, to make haste when it comes to seeking forgiveness. Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah to Zuma, Honey Boo Isla de como

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

como la

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

mala to

00:16:29--> 00:17:05

seek forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and turn to him before it is too late and then you will not be assisted and what is too late. Two or three things are too late. One is when the punishment overtakes you is that what we are waiting for? are we waiting for the day that we see the punishment then we turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says by that time it will be too late. Another are we waiting for the day we die? And then we did. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes people who do that. And Allah says, regarding the oppressor in Surah, Moon had either

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

tovala bilgin Isla de Melo, solly.

00:17:13--> 00:17:14

FEMA, taanach to

00:17:16--> 00:17:28

Allah says, no pressure, at the point of death will say, oh, Allah sent me back so that I can do good deeds. Allah says Nay, we will never send you back. It's too late. We won't do. Didn't we send a bonus to you? Why

00:17:41--> 00:18:23

didn't we give you enough life? Didn't we give you enough intellect, enough life enough time for those who would like to take heed to have taken heed? And didn't the Warner come to you? Whether that Warner is in the weather that Warner is actually in the form of an individual or in the form of a verse of the Quran or a CD or a radio program or what have you, or sometimes a book whatever it is, Allah subhanho wa Taala sends Warner's in this particular wisdom of Assyrian speak of gray hairs, and they say the minute you start seeing gray hairs, you must know that you are close to your grave now Allahu Akbar. You know, some youngsters get gray hairs at the age of 18. And even earlier,

00:18:23--> 00:18:46

may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us conscious of the gray hairs and some Subhana Allah grow to 40 and 50 and still don't have a gray hair. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala Granta staining even without those gray hairs, because definitely they are Warner's they are Warner's who have come to us. And when we age do you know that when your bones start aching, it's a warner from Allah.

00:18:47--> 00:19:24

When your heart starts failing, it's a warner from Allah. When you help fails you it's a warner from Allah. Allah is wanting you to say hey, you coming back to us just now. seek forgiveness quickly. It's better for you. Hello, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us that. And sometimes we have a cough and we don't realize we are having bottle after bottle of cough mixture and we are having this and that remedy, not realizing it's a warning to say Allah is in control. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us Shiva and may He take us away in a condition that he is most pleased with us. May he take us away in the best of our days, and May He grant us a good death. I mean, so Allah subhanho wa Taala tells

00:19:24--> 00:19:35

that to us that we need to turn in fact in Surah Al Hadith, Allah says Sabu Illa Mahavira MIMO bien como

00:19:42--> 00:19:42

anyone?

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

That Nina Dina

00:19:48--> 00:19:55

he was only there for too long you t me.

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

Allah subhanahu wa t

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

dialysis. If you want to compete in anything, then you must compete with one another. When it comes to earning paradise, you must compete with one another when it comes to seeking forgiveness. You must compete with one another when it comes to turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is the competition. Not that you compete in wealth that man has earned so much I'm going to show him I'm going to extend my shop and let him burn. Because he's across the road. When he sees that I've got a business which is now growing, at least he can burn inside one line we did not achieve heaven through that we did not achieve anything. sustenance is in the hands of Allah we've spoken about

00:20:39--> 00:21:23

that. So why then don't we compete for Jenna? You know, something very strange. And this is a point we all need to remember. Imagine if someone had to tell you listen, what is your salary and you say, Look, my salary is 5000 rands a month Okay, I want to give you a house the best house in this whole area and you can pay me 500 rounds a month and for a period of 10 years What will you do? You say no excellent, brilliant Come let's take it Mashallah and you will begin to pay if they told you need to pay on time if you delay we're going to take the house back you will make sure you are there before time to with the payment and up correct because you don't want to lose a house sometimes before

00:21:23--> 00:21:49

those 10 years you might die is that correct? Then what will happen whether whether your children get that house or not only Allah knows whether they are fighting for the house so not only Allah knows but you yourself did that house help you in any way yet You are so regular every month to pay on time or every week or whenever it was to be there even ahead of schedule smile thank the man as much as you can and really then go back and yet you didn't make any use of the house no point

00:21:50--> 00:22:13

okay, let's take the other scenario. Okay, you did get the house Mashallah, you were ready to make such payments that you could pay for that house. Allah tells you I have a house that you will definitely need. That is the house in Jannah paradise. You know what Allah says in this verse in Surah. Allah says, the size of one man's Jenna is bigger than the whole earth and the skies and everything put together for one man Hello.

00:22:15--> 00:22:52

So now forget about one house in the middle of Woodlands or in rondebosch. What have what have you forget about the one house we need to ask ourselves how hypocritical we are. That for something related to the dunya we are ready to make payments to thank the men to be there on time. Allah tells us you need to make a payment that payment is five Salah a day just come on time. Allahu Akbar yet we find ourselves snoring and that Palace in there in Jana. The bricks are made of gold. You know the brothers are telling me why don't we speak about Jenna one of the days. First we need to know how to get there then we will talk about it in Sharla. What's the point of speaking about Jenna when

00:22:52--> 00:22:56

ourselves we are heading in the other direction? Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.

00:22:58--> 00:23:36

So it is important that we realize that with us we have this weakness when it comes to something in front of us. We are quick to make the deal to strike the deal to thank the individual to be there on time. And when it comes to Allah. We can't even spend a maximum of 25 minutes a day if it took you five minutes for each Salah lavaca we can't we are too stingy with our own time for the one who gave us the time. Then what do we expect? Do we want goodness in the dunya? Allah says no. That is what Allah says if you want to compete with one another, what you need to compete with or what you need to compete about is actually getting into heaven, then in the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:37--> 00:24:16

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant that to us beautiful verses of the Quran. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that it is important when you are seeking forgiveness that you admit your sin. You can say Allah you know I did this but I had to do it. You know, what could I do? Now? You know, you can't say that. You have to say Yama I have done wrong. I admit my fault. I will not do it again. I seek your forgiveness. Yeah Allah once you say that you are completely forgiven. In fact, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhana Allah it brings tears to the eyes. It brings tears to the eyes, tears of hope. At Evo Mina ram became

00:24:18--> 00:24:56

the one who has sought forgiveness even once from sins is equivalent to the one who has never ever committed sins before. So Panama. So one time if you were to say a stove Illa Allah I seek your forgiveness. I did wrong I did this I did that in my life. I did this in my life. I did that. Yeah, Allah I am turning I am now old or even if you're not old, I am whatever my age is. I have realized the ally want to attend to you. Yeah, Allah, you are the one. Allah says my worship I love you. I was waiting for this day my worship. Go you are as clean as the day you were born. Start a new leaf love.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

And that's what happens when you say it. Once.

00:25:00--> 00:25:21

Just once. And remember, in Islam, there is no confession of sins to the priest or to the rabbi or to the Reverend or to the Archbishop, nothing at all. They could probably be greatest sin as than yourself. And this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us about. Don't ever use a medium to get to allow when it comes to seeking forgiveness. That is something Allah controls no one else controls.

00:25:22--> 00:25:46

Develop a link with your own creator, he loves you. That's why he created you, Allahu Akbar, and he is waiting for you. He wants you to use your intellect to arrive at him to get straight to him. And this is why the Hadith says whoever seeks forgiveness to Allah Allah forgives them immediately men taba Allahu alayhi whoever turns to Allah, Allah will accept that returning May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us return.

00:25:47--> 00:26:25

When we confess we confess only to the one who created us. Our sins are secrets between ourselves and our own creator. At the time of the night, listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What been as Harry whom Yes, tofu Li speaking of the quality of the good believers, the true believers, Allah says at the time of soul which means that that early hours of the morning the time of the head Jude, at that darkest corners of the night, they are standing and seeking forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know you you are in your bed quietly in the darkness, you raise your hands and say, oh my Creator, I am your worshiper. Do you know what the last third of the night the Hadith

00:26:25--> 00:26:36

says? Young jinora buena Illa sama dunia Kula Allah Allah tintina bakasana in acidifier kulu helminth to ballet. Mohammed must have been involved

00:26:38--> 00:26:38

in

00:26:40--> 00:27:22

the Hadith says Allah subhanho wa Taala descends to the lowest heavens when one third of the night is remaining, and he calls out every single night. Is there anyone seeking forgiveness that I can forgive him? Is there anyone repenting to me that I can forgive them and accept the repentance? Is there anyone asking me anything so that I can give them and what are we doing at that time of the night? Sadly we are snoring May Allah protect us? We are snoring May Allah Subhana Allah protect us. But a winner is the one who sets his or her clock. Nobody said it's a condition to read the HUD you know, set your clock for that hour. You know Allah is calling it is a hadith which there is no doubt

00:27:22--> 00:27:37

about So Allah is calling when you set your clock it rings switch it off, and whilst you are lying down in your bed you can still say Allah I know you're calling I am the one I'm a worship Allah forgive me Allah will tell you immediately my worship or you are forgiven Subhana Allah

00:27:38--> 00:28:14

they We are your ally committed this sin Yeah, I did that in my life. I did this I am not proud of what I did. Yeah Allah you are my Creator. I'm going to return to you. You are the owner of good and bad you Allah grant me goodness and protect me from bad yeah, Allah forgive me. I will not do it again. So Panama. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those especially during the month of Ramadan. We can get up for food to keep our stomachs full, but we can't get up to make one dua to Allah. And do you know what we are awake at that time nowadays? So why don't we just as we are sitting to eat we raise our hands and say Allah forgive me Allah, as we are going to wash our

00:28:14--> 00:28:49

faces and to have the little porridge or cereal or what have you that we have the we should ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah forgiveness won't be as hard on yourself alone. They are those who seek forgiveness at that time of the night. It is far more genuine because our sins are our secrets between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala we do not ever need to confess them to anyone. Unless that sin is connected to a human being then there's a problem. If you have wronged someone stolen his money back bitten about him cheated, spread rumor about him or her. If you have fought them and done something wrong, you need to go to them first before you go to Allah subhanho wa Taala because when

00:28:49--> 00:29:22

you go to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala will say look, go and clear your record with someone else. Why is it more dangerous to commit a sin against a fellow human because they are not a fool Rahim they are not most forgiving, Most Merciful when you ask them listen, brother, forgive me. Nowadays they say make me mad. We call it the triple aim. make me mad. make me mad means Forgive me. If they want they can say no. I'm sorry. I don't want well ah he is there right? But Allah subhanho wa Taala tells every single one of us listen to what he says in Surah to move to Abu Bakr Siddiq radi Allahu anhu

00:29:24--> 00:29:24

while I

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

am in Kumasi

00:29:28--> 00:29:29

to

00:29:30--> 00:29:35

Allah Masaki. Now almajiri Nafisa de la jolla.

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

Allah to him buena

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

viola, hola como la hora Rami, Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu was being told that you should not make a promise that you are never going to spend on this individual solely because they spread a rumor about your daughter. Rather, you forgive them. Don't you want Allah to forgive you? Now from that what we learn is that when we

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

Do you want Allah to forgive us? He will forgive us more readily. If we forgive others. If we forgive others, Allah will forgive us. Someone did something heavily against you. You can find it within you to forgive them. Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala will definitely look at that as a very, very powerful deed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives those who forgive one another. But still, it is your right not to forgive. If you don't want no problem. If the person has approached you more than once, twice, thrice, then it's your right to say listen, we'll sort it out on the day of piano, may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us live in the midst of such devils who can continue

00:30:39--> 00:30:52

oppressing us again and again. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala guide ourselves and guide them as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how important it is to admit your sin and listen to what he says in Surah two Toba

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

una Dada for bs en ob him follow

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

him in

00:31:13--> 00:31:51

the US some others who have who have mixed their deeds they've got good deeds, but they've mixed those good deeds with some bad deeds also, but they have admitted that they have bad deeds Allah says when they turned to us inshallah, we will forgive them it is more likely for Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive such people. So we are from amongst those definitely, who have good deeds, we hope we have good deeds. And we also admit to our faults and to our weaknesses, and we still ask Allah has forgiven us. And at the same time, Allah says if you admit your errors and your faults, and you try your best to attend to me, you promised then inshallah I will forgive you. Allah says there's no

00:31:51--> 00:32:27

reason why I won't forgive you. So, then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the issue of St. Lucia and Toba. They are both mentioned in one verse. In fact, in a few places, both is still far and tilba mentioned. So what is the difference between STL file and Toba is still far is to seek forgiveness and Toba is to return to Allah. So first you do is still far which means you seek forgiveness when you do Toba which means then you return to Allah. So a person says yeah, Allah I seek your forgiveness. And then they and then they stand on the straight path. That is the correct way of doing things.

00:32:28--> 00:32:35

But the person who says your ally seek your forgiveness and they are still standing on the wrong path. They are not genuine. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah

00:32:36--> 00:32:37

was Stubblefield

00:32:40--> 00:32:45

matobo II in Allah

00:32:48--> 00:32:57

Subhana Allah, listen to the Tim What dude which is used, Allah is most loving, he's most loving, Subhana Allah. So yeah, Allah says,

00:32:58--> 00:33:37

mentioning what some of the prophets have told their people and this is an instruction from Allah subhanho wa Taala the lesson is for all of us, seek forgiveness and then return to your Creator For indeed he is most merciful, most loving look at the word Allah uses, most loving, even lies most loving Do you think he can punish us? When we have sought forgiveness? Whenever you say Oh ALLAH forgive me it is written down. That statement will never be deleted. When you die you will see that statement love Akbar that statement will be a witness for you. Yeah, Allah I was uttered by the mouth of this person. Yeah, Allah forgive him. Subhana Allah. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala really

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

to show us his mercy. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us and this is the verse of ultimate mercy.

00:33:46--> 00:33:55

The verse of ultimate mercy in Surah, two Zoomer Allah subhanho wa Taala says kuliah evadne and levena

00:33:58--> 00:34:00

uzima.

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

In Ohio, zoo by Jamie

00:34:17--> 00:35:00

O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam go and inform my worshipers, those from amongst them who have transgressed against themselves. they've committed heavy sins. Go and tell them never, ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala for Indeed Allah will forgive every single sin of yours because he is most forgiving, Most Merciful. That is what Allah says, which means to lose hope in the mercy of Allah renders a person in the clutches of shavon if someone says I have committed too many sins I've got no they have become worshippers of shape and May Allah protect us because shaytan promised Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

To say you are most forgiving, I will show you they won't even seek forgiveness from you. They will seek forgiveness from everyone else and they even lose hope in your mercy. Allahu Akbar, the Most Merciful is the quality of Allah, how dare we doubt the quality of our own creator?

00:35:17--> 00:35:48

We can't do that. We need to have hope in his mercy. Subhana Allah, Allah is saying in these verses in Surah, to Zuma, these are by far the most powerful verses when it comes to hope in the mercy of Allah. He says, never, ever lose hope in my mercy, but we need to turn to Allah. And that is why the very next verse we've already read it slightly earlier in this talk, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, turn before it is too late. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a turning point tonight, here and now. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to become the best of people in sha Allah.

00:35:49--> 00:36:22

So Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us yet another aspect of mercy in the Quran. Do you know that the angels are making to ask for forgiveness for myself and yourself? Are you aware of that? Which angels, the angels who are close to Allah subhanho wa Taala the angels who are holding up the house according to the Quran? alladhina milone. And now Solomon woman Hala who use a bee funa behind the beam. What do you mean? Oh, NaVi was una de la Vina.

00:36:24--> 00:37:02

Those who are holding the house, how they are doing it only Allah knows who they are only Allah knows we are not allowed to go into that discussion. All we know is there are angels known as Pamela to louche those angels. They believe in Allah. And they are seeking forgiveness for the believers saying Allah forgive those who are seeking forgiveness. Forgive those from amongst the believers who are seeking forgiveness. Fulfill levena taboo ALLAH forgive those who are seeking forgiveness. Imagine the angels are seeking forgiveness for myself and yourselves. Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Shula about the angels

00:37:04--> 00:37:04

one man

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

be moist, Xavi, Runa Lima.

00:37:15--> 00:37:55

The angels, they are declaring the praise of Allah and they are seeking forgiveness for all those on Earth. Lemon will be the angels they know Alice punishment then they know Allah's mercy and they are seeking forgiveness for those on Earth. Subhana Allah, we are sitting here sometimes we haven't even turned yet we don't realize the action of the angels. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from that mercy of his. Now Allah Subhana which Allah tells us how powerful it is to make a dua to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala to ask for forgiveness. And we will spend a few moments with this because we need to learn these to us and we need to know them. Listen to what Allah says in Surah Allah Imran

00:37:56--> 00:38:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala says regarding certain people, they were forgiven because they uttered the following words and Allah says I levena colonna Bana in

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

Urbana joaquina

00:38:16--> 00:38:23

they are from amongst the people those who will be forgiven by Allah they are the ones who have uttered the words Oh Allah.

00:38:24--> 00:38:52

In Nana Ravana in Santa Monica. We have believed Ilana so forgive us joaquina Donna and save us from the punishment of the Fire. Allah says he will forgive those people. If they make that statement genuinely, we will forgive them in the same surah Allah says regarding certain people who are forgiven. Why Makkah Nicola whom they did not make any other statement besides this one here in

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

a banner v Lana zu bana suasana v a marina with a bit aboda mana

00:39:05--> 00:39:13

comin Cassidy ALLAH forgive our sins, and forgive the extravagance that we have engaged in

00:39:14--> 00:39:57

and grant us steadfastness make our feet steadfast and assist us against the disbelievers so that we should not become this believers. And so and and that they are never ever victorious over us and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We have forgiven them we gave them goodness in the dunya as well as in the era. So that is that if we read it, we will get goodness inshallah, in the dunya as well as in the era. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the death of Adam alayhi salatu salam and this is mentioned in a few sutras we will speak about the one in Surah Allah, Allah says, Allah which means Adam and Hawa Adam and Eve May peace be upon them to Allah says they said Robin

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Santa Ana we have indeed oppressed ourselves. We're in lambda Villanova.

00:40:08--> 00:40:32

And if you are not going to forgive us and if you are not going to have mercy on us, Lana coonan, Amina foschini, then we will definitely be the losers. So yeah, Allah forgive us, Allah says, We forgave them there and then straightaway Subhana Allah. So this is Allah, this is his mercy, these words, they have worked in the past. These words have been uttered by others, and they have worked.

00:40:33--> 00:40:52

So if we repeat the same words that work once upon a time, surely there is a greater chance of the same words, working again. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding. Listen to what Allah says in Surah to me noon, he tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Waka robbinsville Wah, wah

00:40:54--> 00:41:13

wah he mean, say Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, oh my Arab forgive and have mercy for you are definitely the most merciful Subhana Allah so we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala using the same words are beautiful Warhammer and the pharaoh Rahim Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on us.

00:41:14--> 00:41:17

Another aspect of forgiveness. Allah says Allah

00:41:18--> 00:41:55

Subhana Allah This is a lesson we learn. You need to make dua for the forgiveness of others as well yeah ALLAH forgive all the believers yeah ALLAH forgive my parents yeah ALLAH forgive the parents of the others. Yeah ALLAH forgive my children. Yeah, Allah forgive my brothers and sisters. Yeah, Allah forgive my family members. Allah forgive my wife or my wives. Yeah, Allah forgive my offspring and so on. We need to make dua for others, because if you take a look at Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam knew had a Salam both in Surah Ibrahim as well as in Surah. know Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of their respective to us, and both of them made to us for their parents, as well as for the rest of the

00:41:55--> 00:42:17

believers. Listen to what Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam said robina will fill me when he won a mini knio knio malisa Allah forgive me and forgive my parents and forgive all the believers. The day you take the accounts, the day of reckoning the Day of Judgment. Listen to what know Allah is Salatu was Salam said he says

00:42:19--> 00:42:24

Rob nemani Juanita here walima ibtm Amina

00:42:26--> 00:43:08

Mina, Mina, Allah forgive me Forgive my parents and forgive any believing male or female who has entered my house and forgive all the other believing males and females love a kebab. This was a two out of the of the profits. What does it cost us to make for others? Do you know when you make a draft for someone else the angels say amen to that. So if you say Allah forgive them, the angels are saying Oh Allah grant him same. grant him the same love Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us goodness. Sometimes we become so stingy when someone is getting something similar to us. We don't want someone has a vehicle and someone offers us a similar vehicle. We say no, I want a better

00:43:08--> 00:43:14

one. I want a different one. SubhanAllah there is a joke on a lighter note, I think I should share it people are looking very serious today.

00:43:16--> 00:43:55

They say there was a man who had three wishes, on condition that his worst enemy was to be given double that which he wished. So whatever he wanted, he would have got but his worst enemy was to get double. I am showing you stinginess of men how stingy man is. Even though he is getting what he wants. He doesn't want this enemy to get more. Come on. You said you want a billion rands, you get a billion if he gets 2 billion. So worth That's him. So the first thing he asked for a beautiful house. So he got a beautiful house and his enemy got a double beautiful house even more beautiful. So panela he looked and he was gritting his teeth. Wow. That shouldn't have happened. That's how

00:43:55--> 00:44:21

stingy man is. So the second wish he wished for the most merchandise he could have ever had a large amount he got that huge amount of mountain food. He's enemigo to mountain school is looking and he says Hey, now I've got everything I want. I got a beautiful Oh my god, a mountain full of wealth. But my enemies across the road they I can't stand that. He says okay, my third wish, just scared me half to death.

00:44:22--> 00:44:29

So he was scared half to death, and he wanted his enemy to be scared to death itself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

That is how men is and this is the difficulty with men. That we we are taught that when you pray for someone else, the angels are making a similar prayer for you. And who is better in prayer, as are the angels definitely the angels so there's a better prayer being made for yourself. So learn to pray for others yeah Allah grant them. The Allah this man with a business across the road give him Baraka, the angels are saying Allah give that man even more Baraka so Han Allah, are we ready to do that? that's the sign of a believer.

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

When our demand is weak we tend to fight that men look send your people go cross the road everybody who's going to his shop divert them here Allah protect us. sustenance is in the hands of Allah. Yes, you are allowed to employ methods to do the customers, but not dirty cutthroat tactics in order to lure people away from others. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection.

00:45:21--> 00:45:29

So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that it's important that we seek forgiveness for others as well. We've heard the verses, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:45:31--> 00:45:43

that we should also request others to make dua for us for forgiveness. Listen to what happened in use of a solemn story. beautiful story, which we did tonight in taraweeh.

00:45:44--> 00:45:46

The sons they tell the Father

00:45:47--> 00:45:54

God Oh, yeah, burn a stove Ilana? Oh, no burner in

00:45:56--> 00:46:38

for me when they said, Oh, Father, seek forgiveness for us. We made a very big mistake. We committed a big sin, or our father seek forgiveness for us. He was a prophet, he sought forgiveness and Allah subhanho wa Taala forgiven him Subhana Allah. So it's important. Sometimes there's a pious person, a person whom inshallah we feel that they are good or they've engaged in good deeds, your parents and so on. You asked them make to ask for forgiveness, not just make dua for me, the most important, the most important prayer is that for forgiveness, not for money and for everything else, forgiveness, if Allah forgives you, the rest will fall in place. So we ask people for forgiveness, we don't ask

00:46:38--> 00:47:18

them in the sense that we don't make the dua to them, but we make the dua to Allah or we ask them to ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and that is permissible in Islam. In fact, it is it is a good deed it is meritorious when you go to someone and seek forgiveness from them, or you ask them to make a vow for you. Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said that to one of his companions, Latin Santa Vito, I don't forget us in your to us. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the understanding and I am here asking you not to forget me inshallah, in your two hours we ask Allah to forgive me and I asked you also to seek the same for myself and for everybody else inshallah.

00:47:19--> 00:47:26

So we have Allah subhanho wa Taala, reminding us again to say that now if you have asked someone for forgiveness,

00:47:27--> 00:47:54

say those who asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to seek forgiveness for them or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sought forgiveness for some, Allah says if they themselves did not repent, and are not remorseful of what they did. There's no point in anyone asking for forgiveness with him. And we mentioned these verses a few nights back when we spoke of the hypocrites listen to what Allah says in Surah two Toba about the hypocrisy is devil fetullah whom Allah Villa whom,

00:47:56--> 00:47:59

Allah whom Sabrina merola felony.

00:48:00--> 00:48:24

seek forgiveness for them or don't seek forgiveness for them. Even if you seek forgiveness for them 70 times Allah won't forgive them because they themselves don't want the forgiveness. So that is why we need to cleanse our hearts of hypocrisy. We need to ask for forgiveness, we need to admit our sins firstly then those who seek forgiveness on our behalf inshallah, it will also be accepted because we ourselves have turned first.

00:48:25--> 00:49:04

And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to tell us and this is extremely important that when we make dua, we don't make dua for hypocrites number one, unless we are making dua that Allah guide them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide them and may never make us from amongst, then we don't make to alpha mushy kin, those who associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala they are earning the anger of Allah. If they passed away on that condition, we don't make dua for them. That's the the injunction of the Quran mccannon mcenery, Nabil Nadine Amano stones evolutionary Kino Allah who can

00:49:06--> 00:49:07

only

00:49:08--> 00:49:37

Allah says it is not for the prophet or for the believers to seek forgiveness for the machine even if they are relatives. However, once they are alive, we are allowed to seek do our or to make a dua for them for guidance, Allah guide them, Allah we asked you to guide all those who are associating partners with you to the right path. And we asked you to make us from those who will never associate partners with you who will worship you alone. Yeah, Allah. Because the very next thing I want to mention is Allah Subhana what Allah says there's one thing he won't forgive.

00:49:39--> 00:50:00

One thing he won't forgive, and that is if a person dies on the condition of sheep, which means he has associated partners with Allah and he did not seek forgiveness whilst he was alive. If he seeks forgiveness whilst he was alive, he will be forgiven, because he falls under the others. But if he died in the condition where he was associating partners with others

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

subhanho wa Taala apologies and he did not seek forgiveness Allah says in Allah Allah

00:50:10--> 00:50:33

Shaka BYOB Ramadan economy Asha, Allah will never forgive someone who died in the condition of associating partners with Allah and did not seek forgiveness but Allah will forgive. Besides that, whatever he wishes to forgive, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us all goodness. And this verse is in Surah, Nisa,

00:50:34--> 00:51:21

then I'm going to quickly go through the different means of earning forgiveness. There are certain deeds when you do them, automatically you get forgiven, there are certain deeds, when you do them automatically you are forgiven. The first deed is for a non Muslim to know that the minute he enters the fold of Islam, he is forgiven completely he starts with a new slate. But there is a little bit of explanation which a lot of people forget to tell the non Muslims who are entering or reverting or converting. And that is, did you know that when a non Muslim is turning to Islam, the evil is wiped out but the good is not wiped out. The good comes with them they carry through Subhana Allah, Allah

00:51:21--> 00:51:42

never ever wastes your good deeds. If you did good deeds in the past, if they are carried through, what happens is your bad deeds are wiped out. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us inshallah goodness. And we should promote this word to those who have accepted Islam that whatever good you did before it will come through it is carried through, but whatever bad you did, you are forgiven

00:51:43--> 00:52:17

Subhana Allah and that is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The same applies with myself and yourself. When we seek forgiveness. When we say you starting as as the day you were born, it does not mean that you're good is wiped out, it means the bed is wiped out. That is what is meant by it. When you go for Hajj, that's a deed. Allah speaks about going for Hajj, when you go for Hajj, then obviously you will return as pure as the day you were born. It doesn't mean that you start with no good deeds, your good deeds all day, but the bad deeds the record of bad deeds is as clear as the day you were born. I hope we understand that inshallah.

00:52:19--> 00:52:32

So the deeds that we can engage in each Allah and we should be engaging in Allah subhanho wa Taala says, good character and conduct automatically results in a person's mind since being forgiven Subhan Allah

00:52:33--> 00:52:36

in alladhina, buena

00:52:41--> 00:52:43

de nom de Anima Budo

00:52:50--> 00:53:10

Salim Allah says, Those who had mentors when it came to speaking to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam those with character and conduct, Allah tested them and Allah subhanho wa Taala says for them is forgiveness. So the move Assyrian have explained that good character and conduct will make you arrive in heaven.

00:53:11--> 00:53:50

One duration says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked, tell us which deeds are the deeds that will result most in people entering heaven. So the maximum number of people entering Heaven, what made them into heaven? So he said two deeds, the cola was no good deeds meaning sorry, the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala number one, and number two good character and conduct so Panama. So when you are good character conduct you speak well, you are honest, you are a very, very reliable, good decent person. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that itself will result in Allah's mercy descending upon you, Anna was

00:53:51--> 00:54:20

also able to look at anything that may be a narration, some have questioned this authenticity, but the meaning is correct. Were Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to have said that myself and the one who has good character and conduct we will be like this in Paradise, which means very close to each other. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us mercy. Then, if a person utters the truth and speaks that which is upright all the time, Allah says we will forgive them. Listen to what Allah says in Surah Allah.

00:54:22--> 00:54:33

Allah Vina Amano la aku cola sadita you who believe be conscious of your create and only after that which is upright, usually

00:54:35--> 00:54:52

via silicone glue back home, Allah will make pure your deeds, he'll purify your deeds just because of your truthfulness. And just because of your good words, just because you utter that which was upright and he will forgive your sins, for indeed he is most forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

Those who fulfill their Salah Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that in Surah Surah in

00:55:00--> 00:55:43

Alan, Bina for those who constantly turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says we will forgive them. In fact, the term a well being is also used to refer to those who fulfill Salah at a certain time of the evening, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to read extra Salah, not only the power, but even some extra Salah for the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah then to believe and do good deeds, I'm sure we all know that that will automatically forgive your sins. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in fact, and this is a very powerful verse. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I want to show you my message, when you turn to me, if you return and from that day you do

00:55:43--> 00:56:07

good deeds. I won't only forgive you know, my mercy dictates that I will take all the bad deeds you have done throughout your life. And I will convert them into good deeds on the right side of the scale. So when you come on the day of piano, the goodness of your repentance will actually be shown to you where your bad deeds would have been shown as good deeds.

00:56:09--> 00:56:21

And there is a reason for this. Read what the move Assyrian say. Some of them have mentioned a very interesting point they say, the more sins you have, the more difficult it is for you to repent because chiffon massages you even more.

00:56:22--> 00:56:57

When you are deep in sin, it's harder for you to come out. You know, they say Subhanallah when a person is engrossed in something for years on end, it's very hard to take them out of that. So if they have to come out Allah says we're not going to waste that coming out. You deserve us to take all that evil and we will actually turn it and put it on the other side of the scale and you will now have good deeds. So on the Day of Judgment, you will see charities you will see Salah you will see soccer you will see how you will see so many teachers Yama, where did this come from? Is it my deeds and allow say no oppression today? Listen to what I said and Allah Subhana Allah says

00:56:59--> 00:57:05

in Surah Furqan Illa de la mano, Amina Melo, Sani

00:57:06--> 00:57:07

una,

00:57:13--> 00:57:22

those who return to Allah and do good deeds thereafter, Allah says for them, we will convert their bad deeds into good deeds

00:57:24--> 00:58:09

low now Can anyone compete with Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy. No. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then tells us that if we are to engage, if we are to engage in sincere repentance, Allah subhanho wa Taala will definitely forgive us even after having committed a sin. Many people commit immorality. People have committed adultery. People have committed so many sins, they lose hope sometimes the females lose hope the male's lose hope people have now got to a situation whereby they are engrossed in sin. Allah says if you have committed the sin of immorality, referring to adultery as well as all other immoral deeds. Allah says and if at that moment you remember the law you regretted and you

00:58:09--> 00:58:27

tend to Allah and you asked him forgiveness. He says, not only will we grant you forgiveness, but if you remain steadfast thereafter, we will open the doors of paradise for you. Yes, you committed that sin, that adultery that immorality, listen to what Allah says, and he uses the word and Phoenicia, which means immorality.

00:58:28--> 00:59:00

When levena eva Fallujah he shot an overall mo fusa home zaccaro la Festo, Falcone oni nanobeam those who have committed immorality or evil and they even remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek forgiveness for their sins. The verses continue and I will skip a little bit and Allah subhanho wa Taala says that for them is forgiveness for them is paradise for them shall be the gardens of Paradise of Hannah law.
