Salam o alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato

00:00:05--> 00:00:15

Smilla he will Hamdulillah he was Salatu was Salam o Allah Abdullah he Rasool e Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Germain, my beloved brothers and sisters.

00:00:16--> 00:00:25

This is the final lecture the sixth in the lectures of the healing the OMA series

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

that was arranged by Abdullah aid.

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

And just a quick brief Abdullah aid, at the moment

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

is campaigning to

00:00:41--> 00:00:49

provide dialysis to those refugees. The Syrian refugees who do not have the means

00:00:50--> 00:01:10

to do the dialysis, which is on average three times a week. So in sha Allah, whether it is online, whether it is on your way out or wherever it may be considered this, it's a very great cause in sha Allah, may Allah Almighty bless them and bless all of us and write our names from among those who saved entire humanity.

00:01:11--> 00:01:19

Because he says whoever has contributed towards saving a single life is equivalent to the one who has saved entire humanity.

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

During this beautiful tour,

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

we have come to the conclusion and it is known

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

that healing the Ummah starts off by healing yourself.

00:01:34--> 00:02:16

If you don't heal yourself, you will not be in the capacity to heal the ummah. But we need the Ummah to heal so we desperately need to heal ourselves. In Allah you ye OMA be home in your one year old IBO forcing him Allah promises and he says that Allah will not change the condition of an ummah or a nation and we as a Muslim Ummah, we are a nation. Allah will not change the condition of a nation until and unless every one within that nation decides to change himself or herself.

00:02:17--> 00:02:34

So if I want to see the Ummah healing I need to heal first. We spoke about so many aspects of healing in the last few days. Today, we want to speak about how to prepare to return to Allah.

00:02:35--> 00:02:49

One thing that is certain My beloved children, my brothers, my sisters, my fathers and mothers, one thing that is absolutely certain is that your days on earth are numbered.

00:02:52--> 00:03:02

Your clock is ticking, your seconds are moving. You don't know who's going to be here for the next salah. You don't know whether you are going to be here for the next week.

00:03:03--> 00:03:06

May Allah make it easy the day he decides to take us away.

00:03:07--> 00:03:18

My brothers, my sisters, we are believers. We have been taught through Revelation how to prepare for the day that we will be returning to Allah

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

and when we have made even the slightest preparation,

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

what Allah He we will be excited to meet with Allah.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

Manda Hubballi Allah Allah Hiya, habila Holika who

00:03:33--> 00:03:43

the Hadith says Whoever loves the meeting with Allah looking forward to it with great love. Allah loves to meet with that person.

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

So Allah Almighty wants us to change ourselves for the better as the days pass, we are human.

00:03:55--> 00:04:18

We are human. We falter we make mistakes, we may have fallen into sin, we may have fallen into minor or major sin. Allah always shows you a way out. Allah is so loving, that Adam Alayhis Salam, the first of our species when he did something that he was not supposed to do. Allah Almighty taught him the way out immediately.

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

And when he said those words, instantly Allah says We forgave him.

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

We sent him on to the earth,

00:04:27--> 00:04:36

in order that his progeny realizes and understands that whenever they falter, because of the tempering of shaytan, the minute they turn back to Me, they will be forgiven.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

So number one, seek the forgiveness of Allah. My brothers and sisters look at Nabhi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the greatest of all examples. He used to seek forgiveness every single day. Did he need it? No, he did it. How many times did he used to seek forgiveness a day? Can someone say it 70 And

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

Someone said 100 both answers are correct. Between 70 and 100 times a day a day and he was the prophet of Allah. He was the prophet of Allah, not just an ordinary prophet, but the best of all creation, the most noble of all prophets of Allah, according to our belief.

00:05:17--> 00:05:36

My brothers, my sisters, isn't that an example? A man who did not need it? And he kept saying, Oh ALLAH forgive me. Oh ALLAH forgive me. Oh ALLAH forgive me. Oh ALLAH forgive me. What did you do? No, it's not a question of what I did. It's a question of elevation of status in the eyes of Allah.

00:05:37--> 00:05:44

I I've given an example and I want to repeat it here in this beautiful Masjid. They call it the bell, furrowed Masjid. Right?

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

When someone has done wrong to you,

00:05:51--> 00:05:56

and then they realize they did wrong to you and they come to you and say please forgive me.

00:05:57--> 00:06:12

And you say no, it's okay. No problem. Fine, you're forgiven. How many times did they say Forgive me once? Isn't it? They came to you as a human being please forgive me. I was wrong. I shouldn't have done it. Really? I feel I regret it. I won't do it again. You say no, it's okay not to mention.

00:06:14--> 00:06:47

And then a week later they see you in the masjid for example, or somewhere else? A brother Solomonic me just just forgive me man. But you already said it once you will already forgiven Why did you repeat it because you feeling embarrassed? Number one not because you're doubting that they have forgiven you but you just a bit embarrassed me I shouldn't have done this. And another thing is that it now not to mention Come on. It's okay. When you see them a third time a year later. For example, I feel so bad. You know what I did was so wrong saying this and don't even mention don't talk about it. But you've repeatedly thrice already, is it because you're doubting that they forgiven you? No.

00:06:47--> 00:07:12

It's because of your remorse. And it's because you feel that you really did something you were not supposed to. So you become in greater favor with that particular person because you realize I need to make up for what bad I've done with good and the Quran repeats this when it comes to Allah because Allah's example is higher in and has an Atty. will behave in a say.

00:07:14--> 00:07:58

Allah says good deeds will wipe out bad deeds. You want to see your bad deeds wiped out will increase your good deeds and automatically they will be wiped out when I feel bad that I did something to a human. And I've already asked Him forgiveness so many times every time I saw them, I would do another thing I try and do good for them. Someone mentions them you have a good word to say. Today someone sent me an email and said such and such a scholar said something about you about me and he is like this and he is like that, I replied immediately I said that is a senior scholar of the Muslim ummah. Please do not mention any negatives about that person, because it brings pain to

00:07:58--> 00:08:05

my heart to hear that it's okay what they've said about me that's fine. But what is even worse is what you said about them.

00:08:08--> 00:08:52

What's the idea? The idea is do good to people and what does it cost you so what if they did bad to you? By sin Ilan Assa, elate that is a quality of the prophets. Do good to those who did bad to you why I am preparing for the day I want to meet with Allah didn't we say today we're talking about healing in that way you want to heal, you need to seek forgiveness and learn how to forgive others. Without that you will not heal is no healing without seeking forgiveness. And learning to forgive others look at Abu Bakr acidic or the Allahu Anhu one of the primary examples in the Quran. Were in Surah to newer Allah Almighty makes mention of how his daughter the Mother of the Believers, the

00:08:52--> 00:08:59

Most Chaste of all the women of this dunya Aisha Radi Allahu Allah when she was accused of immorality.

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

Her father got upset. There was a young lad who was related to them who had made hijra by the name of

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

Mr. headnote Atha. Allah Juan.

00:09:11--> 00:09:50

And her father Abu Bakr of severe called the Allahu Han was spending on this poor man. And he was one of those who spread the tail tail meaning it was a fabrication he spread it. He told people did you hear what happened? You know, a lot of us do this actually, we don't realize it just to say, Did you hear the neatest gossip? Did you hear what happened? He said, What happened? He said, You know, so and so. So and So and such and such and such and such? What did you just do? You spoil your tongue for nothing? Are you really preparing for the day you're going to return to Allah? No, I forgot for a moment. Literally. Shaitan tracked me for a moment and made me talk about somebody else

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

when the Hadith says

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

your own weaknesses and sins should keep you away from indulging and engaging negatively in the weakness

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

As in sins of others

00:10:02--> 00:10:14

see so Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu Anhu says what Allah He wala he means he's taking an oath, I will never spend on this man again. Now what was the reason? Because he's spreading

00:10:15--> 00:10:23

tales of immorality against my own daughter who is the wife of the messenger who is the Mother of the Believers are the Allahu anha.

00:10:25--> 00:10:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala who knows that Abu Bakr is a man of virtue? We believe and assume that you will Jamar that Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu Anhu is the best of all those to take this earth after the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:42--> 00:10:45

his number comes first.

00:10:46--> 00:10:52

Abdullah hypnosis man Abdullah Abdullah abiquo halfa are the Allahu Anhu man that was his name.

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

Abu Bakr Siddiq.

00:10:56--> 00:11:57

So for him to say something like this, it must be a big deal. He wouldn't say that in a rush. Still Allah tells him while I Danny all fall Blimey. Come was Sadie ie you do all in Koba. Well Misaki now, mu g Nephi. Sabine in one year for one year sparkle. Allah to him buena de la Winfield on long hula Khun wala who waffle walking Authy Allah says those who have been granted virtue by Allah, those who have been granted sustenance by Allah should never make a promise not to spend upon the poor and not to spend upon the relatives and not to spend upon those who have made hijra, but rather they should forgive and embrace For indeed, would they not like Allah to forgive them? Allah is Most

00:11:57--> 00:12:06

forgiving, Most Merciful? Did you hear the question? Would they not like Allah to forgive them? In fact, it says, Would you not like Allah to forgive you?

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

Amazing. From that verse.

00:12:11--> 00:12:57

We learn that Allah more readily forgives those who readily forgive others. Don't keep it in your heart. What is it worth? How long are you going to be on Earth? For? How long as you're going to be in this worldly life for? Do you really think it's going to help you to keep it in your heart? And just do you know that many times when we learn to forgive others, we are actually setting ourselves free before anyone else. We hold a burden on our shoulders. Such a burden that it's unbelievable. So difficult. Subhanallah because we have so much I voted against this one, that one this one that one. If you really want to hold things against people do you know you will end up holding things against

00:12:57--> 00:13:11

everyone, everyone? You come to the masjid and you're the only person who thinks that he is right. Let's say everyone else, they've done something wrong because you're holding too much on your shoulders let go my beloved brother and sister let go, it's okay.

00:13:12--> 00:13:41

It's okay. Find it in your heart to let go. I know, each one of us has been through different things. Some of you might be seated here. Or you might listen to this later. And you might think he doesn't know what I've been through. I obviously don't know Allah knows. But if Allah could encourage his most beloved from among those after the preference of his who is a booker Sadiq or the Allah Allah to forgive someone who engaged in such bad behavior, what do you think the example should be for you and I

00:13:43--> 00:14:10

and Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu Anhu as soon as he heard the verse, You know what he had to do? First things first, he had to compensate for the oath that he took. Many of us take oaths. We don't even know what compensation is. We don't even know what's the compensation. It's called a FARA. You've got a fast three days, you've got to feed so many people you've got to do why you Why did you use the name of Allah to do something or to promise something and then you broke it.

00:14:12--> 00:14:23

And he immediately then broke the promise seeking the forgiveness of Allah for doing that. And he says, No, I'll spend on him. Because Allah instructed me to spend on it. Even though I said, Well, Allah, yeah, I won't.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

Because he needed and we needed and everyone needed the healing of the ummah. Imagine the grudge was kept what would have happened with the OMA have healed, but that was an example. The question is, is it compulsory? To forgive others? The answer is no. It's not compulsory. If you want to hold it, hold it. But I want to teach you something today. Sometimes when you hold something and you say, I will deal with this man on the Day of Judgment, people have a right to say that. But sometimes when you say that

00:15:01--> 00:15:09

You might come on the day of judgment and a few scenarios could take place. Firstly, you might find out on that day that that person was not actually wrong.

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

When Justice comes, there's a chance maybe something happened behind the scenes that you did not know.

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

And so you're not aware.

00:15:20--> 00:15:32

I'd rather just let go, it's okay. Or you might find you were right. You got the justice, but you were caught because of other things that you did against Allah that he's now holding against you. Subhan Allah.

00:15:34--> 00:15:48

Had you released Allah says, We will release, forgive, don't you want to be forgiven? That's what the verse says, Forgive. Haven't you done wrong things in your life? Yes, I have. When you forgive, we will forgive. That's exactly what Allah is telling you. He's encouraging you.

00:15:49--> 00:15:58

But Allah's Mercy is great. So you want to heal within learn to forgive and learn to seek forgiveness, who should I seek forgiveness from? Ultimately, Allah?

00:16:00--> 00:16:06

Oh Allah, if I have wronged you, forgive me, strengthen me and if I have wronged others, Oh Allah,

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

who helped me to seek the forgiveness of that person

00:16:13--> 00:16:17

helped me to seek the forgiveness of that person. It is so embarrassing

00:16:19--> 00:16:24

when we find out that I have wronged someone from the Ummah or wherever it may be.

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

And we have to actually go to that person and say, You know what, I seek forgiveness.

00:16:31--> 00:16:40

In our language, we say you had to eat humble pie. Here to eat what? Humble Pie. I'd rather eat humble pie in the dunya

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

than to be cast somewhere that I don't want to be

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

in the hereafter. My brother, I'm sorry.

00:16:49--> 00:17:00

I want to tell you all today, if I hurt you, or offended you, in any way knowingly, unknowingly, firstly, may Allah forgive me. And secondly, may you all forgive me.

00:17:01--> 00:17:27

A day will come when I have to return to Allah you have to return to Allah. If you don't have a concern for that day. You have a lot of work and a lot to work on. And a lot of improvement. Because don't deceive yourself. Your days are numbered. Your book is ticking. Your sand timer has already clocked perhaps more than half of the sand is down. Maybe almost all of it is down. Maybe a few grains are left who knows. You know as a sand timer.

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

Concerned about the day you're going to go back to Allah you will heal.

00:17:35--> 00:18:05

And then the second point about healing is to have good hope in the Mercy of Allah. By single Londoner, be na have good hope in the Mercy of Allah. Think good about Allah. Don't just think he's going to punish you to hit you, affect you inflict you and so on. No, no, no, no. Did Allah not provide for you in this dunya so much. What do you think he provided you for? Do you really think you and I deserve what we've been given? We've been given more than what we deserve.

00:18:07--> 00:18:17

One narration says that when man looks at all his acts of worship, and wants to see a compensation for it, Allah Almighty will ask a question.

00:18:19--> 00:18:23

Alumna say halacha Badenoch well Nora week had been ill but it

00:18:24--> 00:18:43

did we not give you good health and quench your thirst with cold water? Yes, well that was enough for all that you did. Subhanallah What about my eyes? My nose my ears? My lips my tongue my beard? My hair my what? My this my arms, my biceps, my triceps. And what else? I had to say that for youngsters mashallah

00:18:45--> 00:18:54

What about all of that? You can see can you not see me today? The bulk of you almost all of us how much did you pay for that?

00:18:55--> 00:18:58

You can't even pray Salat al Fajr that you can see clearly.

00:19:00--> 00:19:04

How long can you see for you can see can you hear me?

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

May Allah grant us goodness in our hearing in our ears

00:19:11--> 00:19:37

now Hong Kong oh boy live gonna be while at home or you will not. You will not be while Oh whom he NYAS ma owner be. Allah speaks about something worse. Allah says some people are so misguided. They have hearts that they don't understand with meaning they're not prepared to utilize their brains and minds. And secondly, they have eyes but they can't see they have ears they can't hear when

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

because it's not impacting upon them.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

What do you want to be told before you change?

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Have we not been breathing? What did you pay for your breath? Has your heart been not pumping? Has your heart not been pumping? How many times a day on average does your heart

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Pump I'm sure you guys know someone said

00:20:03--> 00:20:16

136,000 times a day, in 24 hours, what's the average? 136,000 times your heart pumps? Did you know that? On average per day? What did you pay for that?

00:20:17--> 00:20:57

Can you not say subhanallah at least once a de la ilaha illa Allah while you're sitting here, your heart is just going to have to. tough tough, tough, tough, tough, tough SubhanAllah. Amazing, amazing. Come on, come on. That's Lord of the worlds you paid nothing zero. If you miss one beat from 136,000 you are prepared to pay whatever you own in order to remain afloat and to let that heart continue pumping. You will be rushed to this hospital and that one and everyone that everyone around you is all uneasy. Everyone's lost their sleep because you missed and skipped one or two heartbeats.

00:20:59--> 00:21:41

You're going to go back to Allah. Make peace with Allah make peace with those around you. The hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he says there was once a man. The Companions say the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says if you want to see a man from Jannah, look at this man. When they looked at him, they didn't really find him doing a lot of extra rabada. But when they asked a question to him, what is it that you're engaged in? He says every night before I sleep, I removed from my heart that hill Hill, which means the hatred and the ill feeling against anyone else. I remove it, take it out, I die. I've healed and I've allowed myself to heal. By letting it go critical. You don't let it go.

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

It's a burden.

00:21:44--> 00:22:06

I know you might be sitting like I said earlier, and thinking well, I don't want to let it go. It's a big one. Someone has pinched my money. No problem. You have every right to pursue it. Justice is justice in Islam. Someone stole your credit. For example, you could get it back, brother, I need my money, but I forgiven you otherwise, but the money bring it back Subhanallah

00:22:07--> 00:22:43

the money is mine. The rest of it is okay, fine. I might need to go to higher authority to get my money back. It's not wrong. Ask yourself. How much money does this person owe me? Right? And ask yourself, How much am I prepared to do to get that money? Am I prepared to lose to get the money if they owe you a small amount. And what you're going to do to get it back is going to cause you damage in your health and your well being and your spirituality rather let it go. It's okay. One day someone bumped into my car. Many, many years ago, I came out I looked at it and said goodbye.

00:22:44--> 00:22:58

I thought to myself, I'm going to sit here and everything's going to happen and the police are going to come and this damage is worth 200 quid SubhanAllah. And you know what? It's going to take up five hours of mine one hour of mine is worth maybe 1000 quid for example.

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

So that's not that's not my earning by that

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

I see one of the youngsters saying use it.

00:23:11--> 00:23:35

Myself. But what I mean is it's the tension, the mind the head and everything. Imagine I said it's okay, let it be because it's some few scratches here, instead of all the tension. But if it's a big damage, I'm allowed to say okay, let me wait because I need this car to be repaired and whatever else and so on. So you need to gauge it and ask yourself, is it worth it? Is it worth it? You know, one of the stories that really moves me to tears.

00:23:36--> 00:23:40

It moves me to tears the grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what was his name?

00:23:41--> 00:23:46

I'm doing tonic Desikan Lafayette, what's your name? Amar. Mashallah.

00:23:47--> 00:24:18

Abdul Muttalib the time when Abraha came, you know who was Abraha? He came with him. He came with an indifference in order to destroy the Kaaba, and he came with his army. And when he came with his army, guess what he did? You know, these tyrants, when they come in, they want to steal everybody's everything. Right? So they started stealing the camels of the people. So he stole so many camels, they usurped the camels off. Abdullah Napoleon. And Abdullah metallic was the man in charge of the Kaaba. He was the man in charge at the time he was the leader.

00:24:20--> 00:24:53

So when he heard they all knew that this man is coming to destroy the Kaaba, he made it clear, coming to what to break the Kaaba, when Upton would call him, heard that his camels were gone. He came to Abraham and said, I need my camels. Please give me these camels back. Now, you know, there's tension because the man's asking boldly for his camels. Abre says, You know what? You're foolish. Because I am coming here to destroy the Kaaba. It's going to finish you guys up because nobody's ever going to come here again.

00:24:54--> 00:24:56

And you're busy worried about your cabinets.

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

Guess what he said?

00:25:02--> 00:25:07

Hon evilly Amal Bates, falafel, Rob Bonilla, me.

00:25:09--> 00:25:26

It says, I am the owner of the cameras. I'm asking you for my cameras that house, it has a Lord, He will deal with you. Law Hakuba He will protect it. The house has a Lord who will protect it Subhanallah you know what happened? And our cave.

00:25:27--> 00:25:30

Bunker beat us have been fee in

00:25:32--> 00:25:43

Kaden fee the booni? Were our own sanity him on Airbnb he'll tell me his behavior.

00:25:45--> 00:25:50

Is it G fragile? Gas we

00:25:52--> 00:26:20

go. A whole surah was revealed because of that. Allah says Did you see what happened to those people of the elephant. And the end of that surah Allah says he destroyed them in our language to smithereens. Smithereens gone. With what with little birds, little birds holding small pebbles from high altitude, that's also a scientific

00:26:22--> 00:26:23


00:26:24--> 00:26:35

scientific miracle. The higher the you drop, the higher the altitude from which you drop something, the greater the force within which it drops Subhanallah small pebbles destroyed them.

00:26:37--> 00:26:57

When I go to Makkah, and I'm sure many of us have been whenever I look at those birds around the Kaaba, and it's always birds, you notice there's always birds, and they may not be the exact Abarbanel but I always tell myself, Allah has Juno's that you don't know when I don't? Allah has armies. You don't realize anything anytime.

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

can finish you and I up May Allah protect us.

00:27:04--> 00:27:45

But Allah says womankind, Allah why veba whom were whom Yes, don't feel alone. When it comes to punishment, Allah says, We will not punish them while they are seeking forgiveness. That's why I started off today's talk by saying, seek forgiveness. Allah will not punish you. If you are seeking forgiveness and something very negative is happening to you. It's the Mercy of Allah. It's not punishment, it cannot be punishment. My brothers and sisters as believers we do not believe that everything man perceives as negative is negative. Anything that brought you closer to Allah even if it looked as negative, a loss, some health problem, some other issue or divorce. If Something

00:27:45--> 00:28:00

brought you closer to Allah, it is the Rama of Allah. It is the Mercy of Allah, you lost your eyesight, you are diagnosed some terminal illness if it brought you closer to Allah, I swear by Allah, it is anathema of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:28:01--> 00:28:06

And anything you think is good that took you away from Allah is actually

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

dangerous for you.

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

It could be the other.

00:28:14--> 00:28:56

In one verse of the Quran, Allah proves it Allah tells us phelim Zuma don't kill behave aterna him, otherwise I couldn't he had either very Hobbema or two cars now on both for either wooburn So Allah speaks about how some people when they forget Allah completely, Allah opens the doors of this world, the material life for them, they begin to amass it thinking that Allah is happy with them, but because they are far from Allah, Allah says when they totally forget us, we overtake them with sudden punishment, destroying them and they are confused. Why are they confused?

00:28:57--> 00:29:03

Oh Allah you gave me but now you're destroying me. Allah says We gave you as a punishment

00:29:04--> 00:29:39

not as a mercy. So whenever we want to earn ask Allah become humble come to Allah today earlier on. I was talking to a group of friends and one guy was saying how he lost this deal and lost that deal and lost that deal and most of those deal I just as a reminder told him my brother add two more Subhanallah Bill Allah in your sujood and inshallah next time you will tell me I got this deal and that deal and that you because the owner of the key of your deals is the one to whom you prostrate not you and I don't need to know you in order to get the deal. I need to know the owner of you and I and all the deals.

00:29:40--> 00:29:43

Come closer to Allah Allah will open the doors.

00:29:46--> 00:29:51

We heal we all will heal by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala so we seek forgiveness

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

and we forgive others

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

and have good

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

faults of Allah and are in the one the abitibi What a powerful Hadith Bootsy Hadith could say Bootsy means that Allah Almighty the Prophet peace be upon him is telling us that he said this is not Quran but the prophets of Allah. Allah said I'm saying Allah said this, Allah said, I treat each one of my slaves according to his or her perception of me have a good perception of Allah.

00:30:31--> 00:30:36

I want to tell you something else. The Magician's at the time of Musa alayhis salam.

00:30:37--> 00:30:38

Were they not the men of Iran?

00:30:40--> 00:30:42

They belong to firearms group.

00:30:43--> 00:30:55

When they saw that, hey, this is not magic men. This is not magic. As soon as they saw it, what was the first thing they did? They fell prostrate. How many prostrations? Do you know?

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

Just one

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

just one after that what happened?

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

Around threaten them worn them and executed them

00:31:08--> 00:31:15

then what happened? Allah forgive them. For them is Jana. How many frustrations? One

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

you and i How many frustrations?

00:31:19--> 00:31:24

We lost count. May Allah accept from us even one?

00:31:26--> 00:31:27


00:31:28--> 00:31:48

thank Allah, Allah has given you a chance to put your head on the ground. Thank you. Take your time. In sujood acabo Maya corner Abdullah bin Wahoo was Sajid the closest you can ever be to your Lord is in the position of sujood take your time. Take your time my brothers my sisters, take your time Institute no matter what.

00:31:49--> 00:31:53

You are close to Allah take your time relax, you will heal

00:31:54--> 00:32:00

your problems will be solved and dissolved. Why you are with the Lord of the Worlds

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

What do you have? What are you suffering? What are you struggling

00:32:06--> 00:32:23

Karna rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah Santa Maria has a Bahama and fuzzier Illa Salah whenever an abuse of Allah Sam had an important matter anything that bothered him slightly he would immediately resort to Salah pray to units of prayer ask Allah to Allah What do you want? First call out to Allah

00:32:26--> 00:32:39

firstly, you ask Allah yah hoo Nam either sir artifice alumna or either Standefer stain Billa Oh young man. When you are asking ask Allah. First ask Allah you ask Allah

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

and when you're seeking help seek help from Allah. Allah Allahu.

00:32:51--> 00:33:31

Wa Allah and Amata Luigi dama Allah onion for Okapi che in LA Mian for Oka in the market the cutterbar Hula, hula Waluigi Tama O Allah and Yabba Ruka be che in lamea de roca in Nabi Mata GABA, hula hula Alec roofie Abdullah mucha Fortis Ruffo you need to know if the entire Ummah gets together to benefit you, they will never be able to benefit you except with that which Allah has written for you. And if the whole OMA and the entire nation gets together to harm you, they will never be able to harm you. Except with that which Allah has written against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages are dry.

00:33:33--> 00:33:35

destinies written sealed.

00:33:37--> 00:33:47

I don't know my destiny. That's why I keep working. People say If Allah knows who's going to Jana, and who's going to jahannam Why am I wasting my time?

00:33:48--> 00:34:03

The reason is, because you don't know that's why. Simple answer. You don't know. Had you known then you could have said I'm wasting my time. Right? But you don't simple answer, because you do not know who from amongst us knows where they're going already.

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

I can put up my hand

00:34:10--> 00:34:17

in what I can say in sha Allah Jana in Chava. Let me tell her means Allah will in sha Allah Jana, and we can all say the same.

00:34:21--> 00:34:55

So the fact that Allah knows doesn't mean that you have to stop doing deeds because then you would have been the fool you don't know. It's like the man who comes and he had stolen and they were going to punish him at the time of Mr. Bill photogra The Allahu Anhu and he looks at the gelada Jana is the executioner who executes the punishment. He says, You know what, hang on, hang on, hang on. It was the tech deal and the predestiny of Allah chosen by Allah that I was going to steal so why are you punishing me? So here's a sharp one. That's a very sharp one. But he says it was Peter do you believe in predestiny? Yes, I do. Well, if Allah wrote that I was going to steam the What are you

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

punishing me? So I might even look up taba Viola, one who tells the executioner go

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

did carry on do it because Allah also wrote that we were going to punish in

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

May Allah Almighty forgive us.

00:35:09--> 00:35:30

He'd like to he'll have good hope in Allah. When you seek forgiveness, believe that you are forgiven. Change your ways and your habits. feel in your heart, your connection with Allah have a good hope Allah is loving Allah is merciful. The qualities of Allah that are connected with mercy, love and forgiveness are the most and they are tremendous.

00:35:33--> 00:35:45

He is most loving, most forgiving, oft forgiving, he loves to forgive, look at the dua of Laila to Qatar and we should be repeating it every other day. Allahumma Inaka want to hit ball AllAfrica

00:35:47--> 00:35:59

what does that mean? Have you thought about it means Oh Allah, you know, to forgive? You love to forgive? Why would Allah love to forgive? He knows he has created his slaves, who will sin and earth.

00:36:00--> 00:36:13

He loves from amongst us those who returned to him and repent to Him, those are the ones whom Allah loves. If you think you are never going to sin, listen to this canoe bunny, or the Mahabharata or Hyrule Hapa in atossa, Boone.

00:36:15--> 00:36:26

All human beings are the children of Adam, a commit sin they are prone to error, but the best from among those who often sin because the term Hapa refers to someone who did it more than once

00:36:27--> 00:37:04

to abort those who repent more than once again, we're born off repenting. How many times do you seek the forgiveness of Allah believe in the Mercy of Allah, you are growing but older, you might be terminally ill, you might be young, learn to love Allah and feel the love of Allah back. Allah loves you, when he takes you away, be convinced that you are going to a good place. Why are you not a movement? Did you not say La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that statement alone heals it will heal the Ummah, the bond, don't we say the bond of la ilaha illa. Allah is stronger than the bundle of blood.

00:37:05--> 00:37:18

You hear the Hadith, the hadith of beta, it's called the Hadith of the cod. It's reported that on the day of piano, a slave will come forth with sins 99 files filled with sins, each one from the east to the west.

00:37:19--> 00:37:43

And as Allah Almighty says, Put his deeds on the scale, they are being put on the scale. People used to ask, how will they weigh the deeds? Isn't it? How will they weigh that? I don't know how they will weigh the deeds. I don't know how they will write the deeds but I know they write it and I know they will wait and I know there's going to be a scale of justice because the Quran says it the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says I believe in it.

00:37:46--> 00:37:47

And so

00:37:48--> 00:38:03

today when you video something, or when you have an audio and you save, it takes up part of your memory. How much is a wait, megabytes, agree?

00:38:05--> 00:38:07

gigabytes, sometimes too big terabytes,

00:38:08--> 00:38:20

and so on. It can wait. If you can weigh my speech in megabytes, mp3, WAV, etc. It's so simple for Allah to do whatever he wants to weigh my whole life out.

00:38:22--> 00:38:52

So we don't ever deny the scales of justice. One of the beautiful things about the scale is it depicts the Mercy of Allah how Allah says I'm not looking for someone who only got one side of the scale good only know Allah says, from an Oculus magazine melodica human roughly one woman suffered now as you know MUFA Allah it can enhance you and Fusa whoever is good deeds are more than the bad they have one.

00:38:54--> 00:39:10

Allah didn't say whoever does not have bad deeds, the Mercy of Allah is he's going to weigh your deeds how many good how many bad Okay, say for example, we weighing in kilos, I got five kilos of bad and 10 kilos of good what happened to me I want I want

00:39:11--> 00:39:22

and that's why be careful the weight of your deeds, some deeds that we do bad and we think that's a bona who are human or who are in the law here of him when you accuse someone of immorality.

00:39:24--> 00:39:59

Allah says in the Quran speaking about the accusation of immorality against Aisha Radi Allahu anha. Allah says these people think it's a light matter in the eyes of Allah it is a theme it is a huge thing. How could you How dare you said that. This is why you want to prepare for the meeting with Allah. What's your tongue? What's your tongue and what your private parts my young man Nima banal Ye, why am I being a *y they Hola Hola, Jana Nabi SallAllahu Sallam came out and he gave a guarantee of paradise to people who looked after two things that which is between your cheeks which means your tongue that which is between your thighs.

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

AES which means your private parts. You look after those two pieces, I guarantee you paradise noise that you're not going to get it.

00:40:09--> 00:40:25

How can we lose hope from the guarantee of Nabi SallAllahu sallam? One might say, Well, I haven't been using my tongue. Well, someone else might say I fell in immortality. I tell you what, you're alive seek the forgiveness of Allah. The Quran says

00:40:26--> 00:40:28

in a beautiful verse

00:40:30--> 00:40:44

When Lavina either filofax t shirt and I will hold on me Oh, who's that girl Allah foster will follow only though no being him. Whoever has wronged themselves committed immorality.

00:40:45--> 00:41:00

Those who have committed immorality or wronged themselves, they have committed the sinning against themselves if they remember and they turn back to Allah seeking forgiveness and they do good deeds thereafter. You know what Allah says? Allah Iike Jas

00:41:03--> 00:41:07

Vera Tong Mira B margin.

00:41:08--> 00:41:16

Those are the ones for whom is the forgiveness of Allah and Paradise.

00:41:17--> 00:41:32

Who are they? Those who have a sinful past. P A is T in our language past for as long as it is a sinful past and not a sinful present and not a sinful future. You have hope.

00:41:34--> 00:41:38

If you have a sinful present, make it past.

00:41:39--> 00:41:49

Let it be past tense. It's no longer from today. It's cut, it's over. I don't need and preparing for the day I'm going to meet with Allah. Like I said, my son time has a few more greens I'm fortunate.

00:41:50--> 00:42:07

Imagine Allah is telling you those who committed immorality and sought the forgiveness of Allah after that and change their lives and did good deeds. Allah says, that is gone. There is another verse where Allah helps you to heal even beyond this. In Surah Furqan Allah says, For all

00:42:08--> 00:42:12

ie Can you but Dino Allah who sent me it him Hassan.

00:42:14--> 00:42:32

If you've changed your life after you send and committed adultery and did whatever you did, but you changed your life, Allah says you know what we will do, because you changed your life for our sake, we will convert the bad deeds you did, and bring them onto the other side of the scale and make him into good deeds for you.

00:42:33--> 00:42:49

So first of the Quran, imagine the healing Allah gives you, you feel so good about it. This is what makes you look forward to the next day bother to the next prayer. I love you, Allah, you have really shown so much of mercy to me, you've given me what I don't even deserve.

00:42:50--> 00:42:55

And you continue to bless me when I don't, when I don't even deserve the nice that you've given,

00:42:56--> 00:43:14

has blessed us. Ask yourself, what do you think you deserve? Allah says, if you only look at the way we quench your thirst on a hot day with cold water, that will deplete your Ibadah that's why we believe that we will never ever enter Paradise by our deeds, we will enter it by the mercy of Allah.

00:43:16--> 00:43:25

So one might say, you know, I deal with a lot of young people, young children and teenagers and so on. And you get some really clever questions.

00:43:26--> 00:43:39

One young lad comes to me and says, you said that we will never enter Jannah with our deeds, but we will enter Jannah through the mercy of Allah, what if I don't do deeds? And I just asked Allah for His mercy.

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

He said not a clever question.

00:43:43--> 00:44:05

So I said listen, my son, how do you get the Mercy of Allah? By doing deeds? Subhan Allah so Allah Allah, get our forfeiture for hassle. Allah's Mercy comes in your direction, you might not have full concentration we were doing so that will also just now not one of us has 100% Concentration may be the best from amongst us, perhaps is 80

00:44:06--> 00:44:19

It's true, you're a human. Don't be too hard on yourself, you know that we always see when you get too hard on yourself. You won't be able to worship Allah with joy with beauty. Allah knows you. You're a human, being a human, don't pretend to be an angel.

00:44:21--> 00:44:21

You're a human.

00:44:23--> 00:44:59

He wants the Mercy of Allah, try. Try what I'm going to do my Quran in the morning, I'm going to do my ADKAR I'm going to seek the forgiveness of Allah I'm going to I'm going to reach out to the poor I'm going to visit the sick I'm going to change my habits. I'm going to seek Allah's mercy by tongue as well. Allah will show you mercy but when you don't do any deeds and you just say oh Allah mercy, O Allah mercy, O Allah mercy. It's like the guy who's sitting at home and saying today I need to go for Juma. So all you need to do my brother is jump into your vehicle. Take a drive to the masjid or phone someone tell them come pick me up and then you get to the masjid. But if you're going to sit

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

on your bed

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

disable Allah I want to go for Joomla Oh Allah I want to go that's exactly what it is. Allah says I gave you hands I gave you a chi gave you everything, get up and go.

00:45:09--> 00:45:13

Say the same way you want the Mercy of Allah, how do you get it to deeds.

00:45:14--> 00:45:22

Your deeds might be slightly broken. It's okay so for as long as you did your best, as long as you tried to do it in the best way that you were taught,

00:45:23--> 00:45:24

you will heal.

00:45:25--> 00:46:07

Allah will make you enjoy your Ibadah if you are not enjoying your acts of worship, you need to check where you're going wrong. Have you wronged someone? Have you hurt someone? Have you harmed someone have you? Are you engaged in some sin that is hidden, if you are engaging in sin, what is taken away from you is literally bada. The sweetness of worship is taken away from you because there is a sin that you keep going back to you know what it may be you keep going back to this thing for that when you do your Salah you won't enjoy it. You see sometimes you watch the masjid some of the people they're always in the masjid always doing Quran always reading even some of our sisters and

00:46:07--> 00:46:24

ladies and mums and grandmas. When they're sitting at home for example. They will be swept up with the Quran for hours on end. They're enjoying it. They're reading they're looking and you're wondering, I went I see my mother's reading. I came back I see she's still reading. I came back she's in Salah. I went as I went out, she's still in Salah, doesn't it happen?

00:46:25--> 00:46:28

They are enjoying the sweetness of worship.

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

And with us, Salah time is coming out it's okay it's okay Pumbaa is still kicking the ball

00:46:35--> 00:46:45

Subhanallah the man himself is also reading Salah and you are busy watching him without reading salah. It's ironic. I have seen sports persons who are more concerned about their Salah than their fans.

00:46:46--> 00:46:57

If you're a true fan fulfill the salah just like they do Subhanallah you really want a good example they goes cricketers, I know some cricketers who are really amazing people

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

as Muslim.

00:47:00--> 00:47:02

I'm sure you might know some too.

00:47:03--> 00:47:16

But my brothers and sisters, I tell you, Allah has blessed us. Allah has blessed us in so many ways. And Allah Almighty tells us, we need to engage in the best that we can.

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

When I started here, I said I'm going to speak for 45 minutes Belfour has so much Baraka it's 47 minutes and I haven't yet started.

00:47:27--> 00:47:45

I pray that Allah grant us a healing. And I pray that Allah bless every one of us. Like you can see these talks are a whole series we can go on and on but for now, what we've said May Allah Almighty accept it. I want to end off by mentioning one quick point. Learn to love each other for the sake of Allah.

00:47:46--> 00:47:59

Learn to love each other for the sake of Allah, I tell you something, there is a Hadith where Rasulullah sallallahu seldom speaks about seven categories of people who will enter Jannah meaning who will get a special shade on the day of the AMA.

00:48:00--> 00:48:01

A special shade on the Day of

00:48:03--> 00:48:04

the Day of Judgment when it will be very hot.

00:48:07--> 00:48:17

From among them, there are seven categories. It's not my topic today, but I want to mention the point of love. Or Julia, Anita have buffin lie to people who love each other for the sake of Allah.

00:48:19--> 00:48:52

To be people who love each other for the sake of Allah, why is this so important? Let me explain quickly. There are many reasons but one of them is every one of us is different, your temperament is different, your mind is different, your thinking is different. Your likes and dislikes are different. You could be twins born to the same parents at almost the same time, but you will still be different. What this one says and what this one likes and your brothers are different cousins are different people in the community are very different. Very, very different. You might have some similarities, Allah created you different in order to give you an opportunity to engage in a badass

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

in an rabada.

00:48:55--> 00:49:32

What is the rabada to be able to respect one another, even with your difference? It's okay, this person a little bit temperamental, go easy with them. It's okay. They didn't mean it's some people. They don't keep anything in their heart. They just say things. They just tell you as it is on your face. Other people they have a certain way to tell you it's okay both are right. Some people might get a bit temperamental very fast, calm down when you're around them. Be conscious of it. Allah will grant you reward and some people no matter what you say they're still calm and cool and laughing. It's okay these are different temperaments, Ashkar and one Allah created you different in order for

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

you to recognize one another in order for you to engage in a battle with one another. Allah made you relate it to the same people you don't get along with if that's your brother or your sister, because Allah made it your duty to engage in fulfillment of your family relations and to fulfill their rights yet they are different ladies and Watson who being McAfee in normal was in let the man either two three or Rahim who was ALLAH

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

The hadith says a person who maintains family ties is not the one who, who just

00:50:05--> 00:50:19

has a tit for tat relationship with them. You do I do, who came, I went. It's the one whom when one party has broken and cut off a relation, they go to try and mend it for the sake of Allah, you get a reward for free.

00:50:21--> 00:50:37

My brother, please forgive me, I was wrong. What did it cost you to say that some of us we can't even say that come? What may I tell people? Even if you are not really wrong, you really care for the day, you're going to go back to Allah? If I am sorry, is going to solve your problem. See it?

00:50:39--> 00:50:47

See it? I'm sorry. How long does it sound a mountain? I'm sorry. And then please don't go back and say, Well, I wasn't really sorry.

00:50:48--> 00:50:53

Because some people are like this. They'll tell you we were just told to say I'm sorry, sir. I'm sorry. And then you go back and spoil everything.

00:50:54--> 00:50:59

I'm sorry. So I want to solve the matter. Let's start again. So my brothers and sisters,

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

the last thing the last thing, when someone's asked your forgiveness,

00:51:06--> 00:51:09

try to forgive them. When someone says you know what?

00:51:10--> 00:51:45

I really I really apologize. And I want you to forgive, it's not easy to go to another person and seek forgiveness. So if they did come, no problem makes him feel comfortable. You know, sometimes people might come back to you and say, Yeah, you see, I knew you would come back and so on the own Don't, don't rub salt to a wound, help them heal. You help them heal and Allah will give you a healing in the dunya and akhira. I look forward to meeting you all again sometime in the dunya if not in sha Allah in the highest strength of Jana to to those of God only other wa sallahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
