When you forgive your spouse, you have helped

00:00:07 --> 00:00:10

yourself build a powerful relation. You learn to

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

love one another.

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

And when you have been forgiven by a

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

spouse,

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

do not abuse it.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:21

They are not gafururur Rahim. They are not

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

most forgiving, most merciful. They might be able

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

to forgive you once if you are lucky

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

twice. In a lot of cases it does

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

not extend to a third time.

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

They are human beings

00:00:32 --> 00:00:34

but still we are taught to forgive as

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

many times as we can.

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

But when we have been forgiven

00:00:38 --> 00:00:39

don't look at it as a weakness. It's

00:00:39 --> 00:00:40

not a weakness.

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

Many people think you know what? Where's she

00:00:43 --> 00:00:44

going to go? No way.

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

I'm giving her the life.

00:00:47 --> 00:00:48

I'm giving her everything. Wallahi,

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

Allah will catch you.

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

Allah will catch you.

00:00:56 --> 00:00:58

People think I can do what I want.

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

This woman here, I'm married to her. Where

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

is she going to go? She's got 5

00:01:01 --> 00:01:02

children with me

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04

and I've lived with her for how many

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

years. She can't do anything. She's got no

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

one to go to. Her brothers and sisters

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

are married. Her father and mother passed away

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

and so on. Now, it's okay what I

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

do to her. Be careful.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

She might forgive you. You don't know that

00:01:18 --> 00:01:21

that forgiveness is not a weakness. It's actually

00:01:21 --> 00:01:21

a strength.

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

The more she forgives you the happier a

00:01:24 --> 00:01:27

life between her and Allah she will lead.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

And guess what?

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

The fact that she has forgiven

00:01:31 --> 00:01:33

you does not necessarily

00:01:33 --> 00:01:33

mean

00:01:35 --> 00:01:38

that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is pleased with

00:01:38 --> 00:01:38

you.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:42

It doesn't mean Allah is happy. He's watching.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

He knows The record is taken. He can

00:01:44 --> 00:01:45

see.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:46

So therefore,

00:01:47 --> 00:01:50

please Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, by trying your

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

best not to repeat the sin.
