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

Salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

Smilla he will Hamdulillah he was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he will Allah Allah He was savage mine

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

they told me I have 45 minutes

00:00:17--> 00:00:21

and they told me there is no podium

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

so I don't have

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

my timer usually I like a podium because I put my phone and I click the timer so I know the exact time So tonight we're speaking all night inshallah.

00:00:38--> 00:00:57

When I decide that I've said whatever I wanted to Inshallah, we will go home, maybe we will read Salah to tahajjud it's a good idea at least, and we might end up mashallah making some dua that will be accepted by the will of Allah nonetheless, I want to tell you something.

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

We are human beings. Do you agree?

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

That wasn't loud enough, maybe some of them are Gina.

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

Who is Jean put up your hand.

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

Three guys at the back?

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

Oh, it's a bit dark. I couldn't see.

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

We are human beings. Am I right?

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

Mashallah.

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

And I tell you as human beings, we make mistakes. We make mistakes.

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

When we make mistakes,

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

Wouldn't we like to be forgiven?

00:01:34--> 00:01:40

You want to be forgiven, right? If you make a mistake, you say, Look, I'm sorry. I'm very sorry.

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

Sometimes the person that you wronged

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

is yourself.

00:01:49--> 00:02:10

I made a mistake. The only one who was hurt was me. No one else. In that case, it's not so bad, because you understand that I wronged myself, but in the case where you wronged someone else, some of them are so close to you, and they love you so much without saying I'm sorry, they forgive you.

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

You agree? So say for example, I had an argument with my mother.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

And what happens is,

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

A little while later, I realized I was wrong. That's my mother. I shouldn't have arguments with my mother because my mother is always

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

right. You see, all the women are saying right, they are mothers. They said it loudly. My mother is always

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

in law here in LA Raja.

00:02:40--> 00:02:53

My mother is always right, no matter what. In actual fact, that's not a true statement. She is not always right. But if you have disrespected her, then you are always wrong for the disrespect.

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

So Nothing justifies the issue of

00:02:59--> 00:03:10

disrespect. If your mother is wrong, if she comes up and does something really bad, it's your right to tell her but it needs to be very respectful.

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

If you don't respect your mother, you are not connected with Allah

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

in the proper way. The reason is,

00:03:21--> 00:03:51

Allah created you and chose your mother for you. You need to give her an offer her kindness and respect, man a hug to nurse or be hoarseness, Betty, we mentioned this hadith so many times, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said who is from among all the people most deserving of my good companionship, my kindness. And so he said, your mother, your mother, your mother, you know the Hadith, right? Who knows the Hadith Put up your hands.

00:03:53--> 00:03:58

Mashallah, mashallah more of the sisters know the Hadith and the brothers, but it's true.

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

It's true. And then the fourth time, he said, and your father

00:04:05--> 00:04:44

Your mother will actually excuse you and forgive you without you saying, I'm sorry, forgive me. It happens a lot of the time. Some mothers, they wait for you. Some mothers, they will hold it in their heart for 20 years. And after 20 You know, one day, you know what you did to me when you were six years old? Okay, maybe not as bad as six because six is a little bit young but sometimes a little bit older with you know what you did to me when you were young, you did this, but in the case of the majority of mothers, they wouldn't even they would tell you don't even say I'm sorry. Don't worry, my son. I love you. It's okay. Forgiven. You are a part of me.

00:04:45--> 00:04:51

So it's forgiven. Why do people forgive you without you saying I'm sorry and forgive me? Because they love you.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

What do they do? Forgive you excuse colors. I have a habit. I said it before in this

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

Paul, and I will I've said it before elsewhere and I'm saying it again.

00:05:05--> 00:05:41

I have a habit of forgiving everyone who has done something wrong to me who is doing right now, something wrong to me, and who will do something wrong to me until the day I die forgiven? Do it. It's okay. It's okay. I don't, it might not be a good quality. But for me, it liberates me. It connects me with Allah, I don't mind do what you want every day. People send me links of things people say about me online, I say Alhamdulillah It's okay. Allah keeps them busy studying my life and I'm busy studying the life of Muhammad Salah Salem, I'm doing a better job.

00:05:42--> 00:05:53

You are going to make me busy studying. There's comments. I don't want to look just leave them let them do their thing. But they're speaking this and speaking that let them see what they want. It's okay.

00:05:54--> 00:06:03

Hey, they're talking a lot of rubbish. They don't even know you. It's fabricated. Sometimes it's an intentional misunderstanding. It's fine.

00:06:04--> 00:06:25

But if you look carefully, the issue of letting go when you let go of something Wallahi you are liberated. It's us liberate liberated when you love and care for people. You say Oh Allah, it's okay. Leave them forgive them. And Allah says I love your quality so much because you are forgiving others I will forgive you.

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

When we are for wellness follow

00:06:30--> 00:06:52

Allah to him Boehner AMI, I will feel Hola Hola, come Walla Walla wa for off him. Allah says to us and he's encouraging us to embrace to forgive. Wouldn't you like to be forgiven by Allah? The answer is yes. In that case, forgive them. It's okay. Allah is Most forgiving, Most Merciful. Allah has the quality of the all forgiving.

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

So today we are discussing two names of Allah. Two names in my speech.

00:07:00--> 00:07:08

I started off asking you the question of forgiveness, because one of the names of Allah is a LIFO and FIFO

00:07:10--> 00:07:22

and LIFO they translate it in English, but English does not qualify to translate Arabic. Arabic is one of the richest languages in the world. And English is a poor man's language.

00:07:24--> 00:07:30

Honestly, the whole world might be speaking English, but it has very few words in it actually.

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

And

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

it's a poor man's language.

00:07:36--> 00:07:41

If you look at how rich your local languages are, it's amazing.

00:07:43--> 00:07:47

You have one word to describe something you need a whole sentence for in English.

00:07:48--> 00:08:04

I was looking at the term a lot of fear a lot of fear in English, in Arabic, they will say it translates to something close to a Salama what is a Salama? What is Afia I need to explain it to you it will take me five minutes

00:08:05--> 00:08:38

maybe I could tell you that which is complete that which is perfect that which is protected and so on. Oh Allah I asked you a lot of fear. I'm asking you a Salama I'm asking you safety, peace protection. I'm asking you to to grant me holistic health and protect my deen and protect my wealth and protect my family and my children. And that is a laugh here. And it's only a part of it that I explained but one word in Arabic and efia

00:08:39--> 00:08:51

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say ask Allah Allah Sofia Allahumma inni as a Luca laugh wa well I fear that oh Allah I asked you alpha and alpha what is alpha?

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

I told you the name of Allah is Allah foo or foo flew?

00:08:57--> 00:09:06

So an alpha without the whoo at the end Alpha. Right? Because a full whoo it has a shed the two walls at the end Name of Allah.

00:09:08--> 00:09:13

But an alpha without the second while it means to Pardon?

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

Pardon? Pardon in the sense that

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

I forgiven you.

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

It's out.

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

Gone.

00:09:24--> 00:09:52

Whereas ruffle Aloha four also means the one who forgives what's the difference? I need to know the difference right? Why did Allah use two different names referring to something very similar to himself, Allah foo and Allah for and he uses both of those at times in the verse Allahu wa who will offer would Allah foo Allah full of oral for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

because the if they are mentioned together, then you need to know that

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

Allahu is referring to

00:10:04--> 00:10:10

forgiving you not having done certain things you were supposed to do.

00:10:12--> 00:10:16

And Allah for is connected to you being forgiven

00:10:17--> 00:10:39

for having done things you are not supposed to do. Allahu Akbar, can I give you a quick example? Allah says, pray five times a day and do not drink alcohol. Agree, meaning it's not one, either or something. I'm just telling you two different things, right? One is the issue of praying, I need you to pray five times a day, Allah says, and you need to stay away from alcohol.

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

If you didn't do something you're supposed to do.

00:10:47--> 00:10:53

Allah's awful, would cover you when you seek his forgiveness.

00:10:54--> 00:11:01

And when you did something you're not supposed to do you need to seek forgiveness, Allah's

00:11:02--> 00:11:09

Allah's Name of Allah for and his Ghufron, his forgiveness will cover you.

00:11:10--> 00:11:16

I did some, that is when they're mentioned together when they're mentioned separately they can interchange.

00:11:19--> 00:11:51

But a laughable in Arabic actually refers to wiping out or wiping or rubbing off something rubbing off. So when Allah's Name Allah foo is mentioned, it means he will cover it and wipe it out and delete it in a way that there is no trace of it at all. No trace of it what happened. After Allah forgave it, Allah pardoned, Allah wiped it out completely. There is no trace of it, you go and you see it's not even there. You look for it, there is no trace of it.

00:11:53--> 00:12:36

You know, when we commit sins as human beings, let me tell even myself, when I was growing up, if we did wrong things, we knew this was wrong. We say, oh, Allah, forgive me, as you grow older, so many sins, we have committed small ones and whatever other sins we have done, as time passes, do we not forget that we committed those sins? Wallahi we forget, if I asked you or you asked me, Can you remember the sins you committed? When you were 1617 1819? I'll tell you Allah, Hey, I can't really remember much. Maybe some big things I might remember. But not every day and every year and whatever happened, I cannot remember. That's why we are taught to seek forgiveness every day because the

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

longer you leave it, the more the chance is that you're going to forget about it and you will not ask Allah's forgiveness for it. But Allah says, Do you know what?

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

If it was a minus sin, I will wipe it out without you even asking for forgiveness.

00:12:52--> 00:12:58

Minus sins, Allah wipes out without you asking for forgiveness. Did I ask for forgiveness? No.

00:12:59--> 00:13:03

Why did Allah forgive me? Because he is awful. That's why

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

He's forgiving. He's the Pardoner.

00:13:08--> 00:13:16

In her sanity, you have been saying it Allah says in the Quran, good deeds

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

automatically delete the bad deeds.

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

Who has been for Umrah amongst you put up your hands

00:13:28--> 00:13:43

there is a reason put it a bit higher, a little bit higher, a little bit higher. Mashallah, put your hands down. That's quite a good number. May Allah take those who have not been for Umrah to hombre May Allah take you for Hajj as well say I mean,

00:13:44--> 00:14:05

from among those seated here and among those who will watch this later, perhaps, Amara, you made one and the Umbra you made another one. The gap that is between the two of them any minor sins that were committed between those two wiped out by you merely doing the good deed?

00:14:06--> 00:14:10

What was the deed or Amara? So the Hadith also says when you make hajj

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

when you make Hajj

00:14:14--> 00:14:21

the reward of it is nothing but gender tool for those paradise. Who wants to Jana I wanted you wanted we all want it right?

00:14:23--> 00:14:49

We want Jana. So Allah says, one time you went for Umrah when you go again the sins between the previous time you were there, and this one here they are wiped out wiped out without seeking individual forgiveness for my innocence. If it's a major sin, you need to seek individual forgiveness. Oh Allah. I did this. I regret it Forgive me, Allah, Allah, Allah. May Allah forgive us. But

00:14:51--> 00:14:58

the same applies to Salah. Your prayer. You did Fajr you did for her?

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

You did

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

So, the fact that you are doing these good deeds minus sins in the middle in sha Allah, they are wiped out. That doesn't mean Oh, today in Manila, we were told that minor sins are not really a big problem, because they will be wiped out between the Salas it's okay let me just do these minuses La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah Hill Isla de la the No, no minor sins are a big problem also because when you continue to do minor, minor minor, what does it become?

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

Major? It becomes major.

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

So Allah says, no, no, no, no, it's not like you intentionally do something.

00:15:42--> 00:15:59

You did it, you are a human being. And you made a mistake, you made an error, and you continued, and you did lots of good. The good thing is Allah on the Day of Judgment ways, your deeds on the scale, you have more good deeds, you are fortunate you have more bad deeds, you have lost,

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

you have lost, may Allah grant us the ability to do more good deeds than bad. And May He strengthen us not to do the bad and wherever we have done them. May He forgive us. So Allah will forgive you. Like I said, without you saying, Please forgive me, oh Allah for my innocence. Allah says, We will forgive you. Allah says on top of that, that on the Day of Judgment, if you come with your bad deeds and your good deeds, and the good deeds are more than the bad deeds, what will we do? We will ignore the bad deeds and put you into Jana. Why? Because you have more and more good deeds. That's why do many more good deeds. This is the meaning of the verse that your good deeds will automatically wipe

00:16:40--> 00:16:53

out the bad deeds, that is Allah, Allah Who He forgives, is the pardon, I pardon it. Allah does not benefit from holding it against you. Allah doesn't benefit from punishing you.

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

So why does he punish?

00:16:56--> 00:17:24

He wants goodness for you, number one, and number two, he is just Allah is just he is fair. Imagine if I in this world, look at what Israel is doing to the Palestinians every day 1000s of people are being affected, either killed or driven out of their homes now, millions are displaced, and 1000s have been killed in in a style as though they're enjoying doing what they're doing.

00:17:25--> 00:17:27

Do you think that Allah is going to let it go?

00:17:29--> 00:17:49

Do we not want to see justice? We want to see justice. Will that Justice happen in this world in my life, in sha Allah, but maybe it might not happen the way we want it to happen. But Allah says Leave it to me. That doesn't mean don't do anything about it. I'm speaking about it right now. Right.

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

But what it does mean

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

is that they will pay the heaviest price on the day of piano, the Day of Judgment, to say the least.

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

There is no chance

00:18:06--> 00:18:29

no chance that they are going to be let loose on that day. The Day of Judgment Allah will call everyone and bring them to justice. Lee man ill mole cool. Yeah. Oh, Allah asks a question, whom is the kingdom for today? There will be dead silence, no one can talk that is Allah La hindpaw hidden.

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

kingdom belongs to Allah the one the one, the most powerful.

00:18:38--> 00:18:52

The One, the Irresistible, cannot resist Allah is there. So don't you want to see justice. So Allah will not forgive you for something you did against someone else.

00:18:53--> 00:19:22

Right? When they want the justice against you, you will have to pay pay in this world. But Allah says you did something against me. I can forgive it. I can forgive it. And that's why they say Backbiting is worse than adultery. Adultery, they committed is a sin between them and Allah. It's a major sin, it is forgivable by Allah, you seek the forgiveness Allah is Allahu Allah for.

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

And on top of that, another name of Allah is Allah afar. What's the difference? The FAR is

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

a term in the Arabic language, the name

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

that refers to something being repeated.

00:19:40--> 00:19:49

So Allah is oft forgiving, the one who forgives again and again and again and again and again.

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

That is far.

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

Look at the mercy of Allah.

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

And that is why if you take a look at

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

our

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

I shall the Allahu anha when she asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if I see and witness the Night

00:20:09--> 00:20:59

of Decree, Leila, to cuddle, what should I do or say? The prophets Allah Allah Salam says Say Allah Houma. Inaka fu one, two to hip bull alpha 510 Allah, you are a fool. You love to pardon. So pardon me, you love to forgive so forgive me. In what sense? Forgive me for things I remember things. I don't remember things I did openly things I did, silently, quietly, privately, things I did by day things I did by night, things I did that were major things I did that were minor. Forgive me for everything. Why? Because you are the one who loves to forgive. So forgive me. One narration says, if we did not sin, Allah would bring about people who sinned in order for them to seek forgiveness that

00:20:59--> 00:21:12

Allah forgave them. This hadith does not mean Allah wants you to sin, but rather it is there in order to give you hope to say don't lose the hope Allah is Allah Allahu Allah for Allah far at the web.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

What is the web?

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

It's another names which is quite similar.

00:21:20--> 00:21:38

tarbiyah Tubu is one who returns to Allah. If I say a stuggle funeral law, what have I done? I have done seeking forgiveness of far and I'll go for will accept your Astone ferula. You understand what I'm saying? Can I explain it?

00:21:40--> 00:22:26

I will have far is the one who forgives you often Allah for is the one who forgives. He will forgive you. When you say a struggle fear Allah Oh Allah, I seek your forgiveness. Those two qualities come into play and Allah has forgiven you, right? I sought forgiveness but did I change my life? Did I change my life? Changing your life could be a separate matter. It could be a separate matter in the sense that I said Oh ALLAH forgive me but my life didn't really change so much. But when you changed your life, you became a person Raja Illa Allah He taba Illa Allah Toba, a Raju to go back to Allah. That is called Toba. When your life changed, then you went back to Allah it's Toba.

00:22:28--> 00:22:36

It is the web the name of Allah. Allah says when you change your life, you came back to us we accept it from you. Now look,

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

many of you here are new Muslims, rivers barlick Islam, converse. Call it what you want, right?

00:22:48--> 00:22:59

The day you stood and you said a shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah wa shadow Allah Muhammad Abdul Hua rasuluh what happened? The Prophet salallahu Salam says, Yeah, Khalid in Al Islam, Maya Buma Kubla

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

what happens?

00:23:02--> 00:23:13

The Prophet sallallaahu Salam says, oh, Khalid, when you accept Islam, it deletes all the bad that you did before it completely. You start off new brand new.

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

You start off new.

00:23:19--> 00:23:28

Wow, that's amazing. Your life changed. Guess what I want to give you good news. Whoever makes Toba has the same reward.

00:23:30--> 00:24:14

Has the what? The same reward at EVO Mina them become Aladdin Bella. That's the Hadith. The one who did Toba from a sin is equivalent to the one who didn't commit the sin. Why? You might say that's not fair. Right? I stayed without committing the sin. That guy committed the sin and made Toba and you're telling me he's equivalent to me who didn't sin? You understand? It's not fair, right? That's what someone would say. Allah says no, the fact that he turned back for us, and he left something after tasting what it was like, or whatever it might have been. And he decided, oh, Allah, forgive me. And I'm coming back to you only for you, even though I have the ability to do it again and

00:24:14--> 00:24:30

again, but I have chosen not to for you. Allah says that act of worship is so high that it's equivalent to the one who didn't send it all and he didn't have the opportunity to do exactly that. Wow. You might not understand it fully. But if you think about it, it makes sense.

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

Imagine a drunkard I want to tell all of you, we all have some habits we trying hard to get rid of. Some of us are hooked on to pornography, some on to alcohol, some on to drugs, some on to maybe just wasting time on the phone with the opposite sex, maybe with the same six now the Billahi but all of that when you know that there is something displeasing to Allah and you hold back no matter how much you really want to fall in it.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Don't you deserve? Don't you deserve something great?

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

A guy who never ever tasted a drug?

00:25:10--> 00:25:13

Allah, he's got a very high status in that regard.

00:25:14--> 00:25:22

I always tell the kids don't even smoke. Not even a puff. Not even a cigarette. No. Don't even try it.

00:25:24--> 00:25:28

Because one thing leads to another before you know they're trying weed.

00:25:29--> 00:25:42

And before, you know, they're trying some other drug that just now people were saying to 30 is no longer here. The drug problem is coming up again. I think it's true. Maybe it's true. More and more people are looking. And I tell myself due to it is no longer there.

00:25:43--> 00:25:45

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about right?

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

May Allah make it easy?

00:25:50--> 00:25:55

We have a few politicians sitting here. They must be thinking this man is entering dangerous territory.

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

No, no, it's okay. I'm only mentioning one good point.

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

But what I want to tell you is for someone who was there, they are addicted and hooked. Don't they need a lot of

00:26:10--> 00:26:47

power, encouragement, willpower, power, strength to quit something they're addicted to? And they turn back to Allah. Allah says, You know what? I forgive you. You are equivalent to the one who didn't do it has come, let's go we start a new leaf. That's why Allah does not want you to lose hope in His mercy. Because if you were doubting the Mercy of Allah, and if he told you that, no, I'm still going to punish you or you're not equal to this, you would lose hope you would lose hope completely to say, You know what, I sinned, now it's over. And as it is, I'm going to hell let me just sin whatever other sins they are. Allah says, no, no, no, no, no. Come back. Because you know

00:26:47--> 00:26:57

what? You are equal to someone who didn't send because of you're coming back and changing your whole life. So much. So there is a bonus that person gets it. Allah says in the Quran in surah Al Furqan. You want to hear it?

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

In

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

Dabba? amela Amarillo Solly. For Hola, can you but Dino lungs, de him has an

00:27:12--> 00:27:47

what can Allah wa for him? Allah says, When you repent to Him, and you quit your bad ways, and you changed your life and you did good deeds after that. He takes your bad deeds and he puts them on the right side of the scale and converts them into good deeds. When you come on the Day of Judgment. You'll see a massive pile of good deeds, what was that? That was your turning, and those were your bad deeds that became good deeds as a result of you changing your entire life for the sake of Allah. That's a bonus. A big bonus.

00:27:48--> 00:28:05

So that doesn't mean okay, let me go and sin for a few years. Then when I come back, imagine all of that is going to become good deeds. Allah says no, you can't do that. You don't know how long you're going to live. You don't you can't plan to do all of that you might die in the middle of a sin May Allah grant us all a good death in Salah in sujood Amin.

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

Allah is Allah Allahu

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

Allah says, Forgive.

00:28:13--> 00:28:23

I was telling you about the Day of Judgment, when justice will be served against these murderous genocide perpetrators.

00:28:25--> 00:28:38

justice will be served to the degree that they will be made to pay the price of every single person they enjoyed killing, they enjoying it. They're making it a game.

00:28:39--> 00:28:46

Go and watch how other people are going and dancing and making and looking for babies and kids and playing the fool.

00:28:48--> 00:28:51

May Allah Almighty grant us goodness, may Allah grant us victory.

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

My brothers and sisters justice comes

00:28:57--> 00:29:02

and Allah has kept the day of judgment there. He will bring justice if there was no justice.

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

It would be so unfair.

00:29:07--> 00:29:48

It would be so unfair Imagine going and Allah says you know what? It's okay. There's no justice. I'll just do what I want. No, Allah says, I am just I am fear if I told you that you will pay the price you will pay the price. If I told you that this will happen it will happen. Wala hula you gleeful me as Allah does not go against his promise time or his promises in any way, shape or form. He made a promise It's a promise. The only time Allah will excuse you and he will let go of you. When you've done something wrong against him or against yourself. Allah says it's okay. That's why Allah says Kalia a bad Daniela Nina Serafina. Allah fusi him tell my worshipers who have wronged

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

themselves.

00:29:50--> 00:29:55

That Don't worry Allah will forgive all your sins. You wronged yourself. Allah will forgive all your sins.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

This is Allah Allah

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

For

00:30:03--> 00:30:34

the second name we were to discuss in today's speech is a lower dude. It's connected in to the first one. A lower dude means the most loving. Allah calls himself the most loving. Allah calls himself the Pardoner. It's out of His love for us that He pardons Didn't I tell you moments ago when someone pardons you without you having said I'm sorry, he loves you. Or she loves you.

00:30:35--> 00:31:01

Allah says minus ends. You don't even have to say I'm sorry, it's gone. It's wiped out fellas. It's over. Imagine out of his lap his pardoning because he's a dude, he's also a fool. Because he's, Well, dude, he's a fool. If he was not what dude, how would he be a fool and go for and to worship and confer and those names which are connected to forgiveness, so many names are connected to forgiveness, not just one

00:31:02--> 00:31:20

in order to give you hope in the Mercy of Allah Rahman Rahim. Subhanallah, lovely, beautiful names of Allah, Most Merciful, most compassionate, the Beneficent, the Forgiving, the Pardoner, the one who asked forgives, the one who loves to forgive,

00:31:21--> 00:31:33

loves to forgive. That's a name, man. That's an amazing name. It brings a smile to my face straight away. Loves to forgive. Wow loves to forgive. Allahu Akbar. Oh, ALLAH forgive our shortcomings.

00:31:35--> 00:31:40

So what dude is the level of love? These names have appeared in the Quran.

00:31:42--> 00:31:48

In Arab Mizrahim, ooh, dude. Allah says, Indeed, my Lord

00:31:50--> 00:32:04

is merciful and his most loving, his most loving Allah is Most Loving, you know, Allah mentions in one of the verses of the Quran, the two terms together, which to the first name I spoke about his Allah foo.

00:32:06--> 00:32:09

And then Allah speaks about a deal.

00:32:12--> 00:32:19

That all able, Allah is Able he has Qudra but still, he just pardons

00:32:20--> 00:32:50

I can, but I forgive. So Allah says, Well, who will levy tongue butter and a baddie? Why? One is say, it is Allah who accepts the repentance of a person and he wipes out all He pardons the sins of the people. He pardons the difference between the two, one I sought the forgiveness the other one, Allah says, I just forgive you.

00:32:51--> 00:33:09

And he knows what you do. That's the rest of the verse. Yeah, Allah Mamata alone. He knows what you do. But Allah says that when I know that I can destroy you because of your sin. Still, I forgave you. It shows power. It shows power. Imagine

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

if you know that the person who wronged you, you can fix him up. Would you not fix him up?

00:33:18--> 00:33:36

Someone came and stole something from you. Someone came and slapped you. Someone came and swore you and you know you're a powerful person or you're very strong. What would you do? Slap you slap him back, drop him to the ground, take him away, and maybe even more in the Philippines. Right?

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

It's true.

00:33:39--> 00:33:47

Someone stole from you. Not just him. But me. In some countries, him and everything around him, he's in trouble.

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

Why? Because he stole from you and you're a big man.

00:33:51--> 00:33:52

Right?

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

But if you're a weak person,

00:33:57--> 00:34:01

and someone slapped you, what do you do? Come on.

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

You got to look at them and say, Thank you, sir.

00:34:05--> 00:34:11

Am I right? Because a big man came stronger is a one slap on your face is

00:34:12--> 00:34:16

what are you gonna do? Or you might look at another person who's strong and tell them

00:34:18--> 00:34:18

right?

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

Because you know, I'm weak, I can't really do anything.

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

Which one is more powerful? Tell me

00:34:29--> 00:34:33

the one who has all the power but he still does not do anything.

00:34:35--> 00:34:40

Or the one who has all the power and he does whatever he can. Who is more powerful.

00:34:42--> 00:34:49

The one who knows that he can crush you to the last piece. But he just lets go. He says it's okay.

00:34:50--> 00:34:58

That's the more powerful so the most powerful of all is Allah because he does it every single day and every moment of the day.

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

How many of us have sinned? I have sinned, we've all sinned.

00:35:04--> 00:35:27

We make mistakes, knowingly, unknowingly, not only mistake, sometimes intentionally, something happens, we are doing a sin. We know Allah says, I know what you did. And you know what I know. And it's only gonna affect you and bother you. Are you wrong? Do yourself and you went against the command and an instruction. But I'll forgive you. I let go of you. It's okay. I'll leave you. Wow. Subhanallah

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

you know what, I want to tell you something that's going to be maybe a dispute amongst some people. Listen.

00:35:37--> 00:35:49

A wife catches the husband doing something bad or the husband catches the wife doing something bad. Okay. So maybe their SMS is on your phone that need a little bit of Tafseer.

00:35:50--> 00:36:13

You know, that means that means you need to explain to me what's going on here. Number one, don't spy on each other. It doesn't help you at all. Many of the scholars say it's actually prohibited because the Quranic verses Well, it just says who don't spy at all. It includes all types of spying, where and more so amongst each other, however, something you came across and you know what? You happen to see these messages. Oh, in law here in LA Hara, June.

00:36:14--> 00:36:19

Now, you need an explanation. A lot of the times what people do

00:36:21--> 00:36:27

they break the marriage because of something like this. Completely broken, it's over. I don't want I can't stay with you. I'm out.

00:36:30--> 00:37:11

Five minutes before that You are the love of Mother, can you not sit and try and help the love of your life or Excel or try and mend things? Or try and help them to come out of things? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, they crossed the Red Line. But five minutes before five seconds before you were just sitting together and say you the love of my life. And now suddenly everything is over and broken, I want to advise you try and look into the matter. See what it is see how bad it is see where it is gone. See if you can mend things Wallahi if you can mend something, the strength of the relationship will definitely be far greater. When you have succeeded in helping a spouse come out of a mess that

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

they were in, then if you didn't have that mess in the first place.

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

Because you sacrificed for them.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

I love you so much. So I'm going to give you another chance

00:37:25--> 00:37:31

for the sake of Allah and for the sake of both of us. And for the sake of whatever else there is.

00:37:34--> 00:37:43

Remember my words I said you need to know what it is and how far it is. And all of that I said it I covered myself. So don't come and say I said that you must just forgive no matter what he's done.

00:37:45--> 00:37:49

Or she because now it's both sides. It could happen.

00:37:50--> 00:38:09

The thing is with Allah, Allah Almighty is unique and he's different. Allah says, His quality is that he will forgive you again and again and again and again. And automatically there comes a time when your relationship with Allah becomes stronger as you grow older. It becomes supposed to become stronger.

00:38:10--> 00:38:14

Many people, majority of the people, I'm talking of believers

00:38:15--> 00:38:36

who have weaknesses. As time progresses, they become closer to Allah, don't they? It's very rare where you find the person, very obedient. And when they growing older and older, they're now more and more and more disobedient. Normally. It's the other way around. Normally it's the other way around. It's unusual, it's there but very rare.

00:38:39--> 00:39:27

Allah Almighty reminds us to say, Turn back. I will mend the relationship with you, man, Attorney me she I tell you to who Hawala, Whoever comes to me walking, I come to him rushing, I come faster than you, you want to come to me Come, I will show you the piece that you will get. But you need to make an effort to come to me, don't worry come. You want to change your life, change it today. When you come to me, you will see what you will get what I will do for you. This is Allah, He is most loving. He is waiting for you at any time. He will give you fresh air to breathe, he will allow your heart to pump 136,000 times on average a day he will allow it to pump without you paying a penny. Even if

00:39:27--> 00:39:40

you didn't read Salah for the whole of the five Salas and that is sinful and it's a major sin and it's a pillar of Islam that you're knocking down but Allah says nevermind, your heart is pumping. This is happening. It's Allah's love.

00:39:41--> 00:39:42

He's giving you a chance.

00:39:45--> 00:39:50

He's he cares. He cares for all humans. He cares for all animals. He cares for everything.

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

It's Allah

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

so it's amazing.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Allah's love you

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

is unmatched do not doubt it. No matter how much love your mother can show you, Allah's love is beyond 70 times that.

00:40:12--> 00:40:27

You believe in Allah. He is the Most Loving the most kind. That does not mean he's encouraging you to do as you want because he's most loving No. He's loving his love is there for those who try to achieve it.

00:40:28--> 00:40:41

You love your spouse why? You made an effort you got married, what else or you made an effort and you work towards something you sacrificed you try to achieve their love and you achieve each other's love.

00:40:42--> 00:41:00

What is it it's a connection? Who built it the two of you built it by the permission of Allah with Allah you want His love will build the relationship. Get up for Salah, Salah salah. Your five daily prayers is one of the first stepping stones to the love of Allah.

00:41:02--> 00:41:03

Then you feel the love.

00:41:05--> 00:41:19

When you are praying hard for something and he does not give it to you, you know, my connection with him he is so strong that if he did not give me this Wallah He it is better for me that he did not give it to me.

00:41:20--> 00:41:24

Why? Because I trust him and I love him and he loves me.

00:41:26--> 00:41:33

And this is why Allah doo doo does not only mean the most loving

00:41:34--> 00:41:40

it also means the one who instills the love in the hearts. He said Well dude

00:41:43--> 00:41:45

what does he say in the Quran?

00:41:47--> 00:42:05

In a loving man AMILO Saly Hatti saya J i Lola humo rough man who would Allahu Akbar, those who believe and do good deeds. Allah, the Most Merciful will place for them.

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

Love in the hearts of the people.

00:42:12--> 00:42:17

What was that that's part of the love of Allah. So you love someone simply because

00:42:19--> 00:42:31

they are believers and they do good deeds. And Allah has placed their love in your heart. You need to be a person who also has a little connection with Allah to feel that love.

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

Because there are some people

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

who love Shayateen

00:42:38--> 00:42:43

right? They love Shayateen they love the Satan's. They love evil people

00:42:45--> 00:42:53

because they themselves are not connected to Allah. If you are connected to Allah even in the smallest way. Like I said, the first stepping stone is what

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

are you guys listening?

00:42:58--> 00:43:31

The first stepping stone your five salah, if you have your Salah Allah will help you to love only good people to love only those who are close to Allah when you see them, you interact with them, you want to know them you are feel you feel connected to them, you feel a good feeling when you are with them or when you interact or connected in whatever way because why you are connected with Allah, They two are connected to the same Allah but if you have in your heart shape, and you will only love those who are also connected to shaytan then it goes.

00:43:33--> 00:43:39

This is why make an effort, make an effort towards Allah see the difference, it will change everything.

00:43:41--> 00:43:46

It will grant you such a peace and such a goodness that when you are about to return to Allah one day,

00:43:47--> 00:44:30

when you're about to return to Allah say for example, if you get old, now your knees start aching in painting, and you are a little bit sickly. All those things. Allah knows he wants you to just be patient. Don't worry. One day, you're going to get old and one day you're going to get sick and one day you're going to die and one day you're going to come back to me and one day you're going to meet me and one day I'm going to show you my love for you my forgiveness for you and I will give you your place in paradise Allahu Akbar, I need to go I need to die. I need to what I need to die if I want to go there. So when you're about to die, Allah's love overtakes everything and he gives you have a

00:44:30--> 00:44:33

comforting feeling within your heart.

00:44:34--> 00:44:52

That you what is awaiting me is beautiful. It's good. It's a mate. It's better than this world. Why do you believe that because you're connected with Allah. I don't need to stay here anymore. It's okay, I'm gonna go I'm gonna what's the big deal? Well, the big deal I tried hard to please my maker now I'm going back to my maker. I'm a happy person.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

I'm a very happy person. The Quran says the angels come down to those who were connected to Allah

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

lat before at the point of death and they tell the person don't worry, no need to fear for you. There is a place in paradise in Lavina con buena lagoon musta come tetanus Zawada Himalayan mela Iike to Allah the half who Allah doesn't know wherever she Ruby engine.

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

Those who believe and they do is the karma. They are straight.

00:45:31--> 00:45:34

Connected with Allah. They are straight, good people.

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

Allah says the angels will come down to tell them at that moment, don't worry. latter half Wallah doesn't own don't be sad, don't worry, what you're going through. Amazing. You know what? Jana is awaiting you that you have been promised. It's there. May Allah grant us that good news. I've seen people pass away in my life. At the point of death. I've seen people on a few occasions.

00:46:02--> 00:46:11

And some of them they begin to smile, just prior to death. They look around and they're smiling. What are you looking at Allahu Allah. They're just smiling.

00:46:12--> 00:46:14

Some of you might have seen that.

00:46:15--> 00:47:01

What happened according to what we were taught, the angels of death that came was so pleasant. And a word was whispered to them exactly as the Quran has described. May Allah grant us good? What is this? Is this not the love of Allah? Is this not him burdening us? Is this not our Lord? We have a Lord who is most forgiving. What more do I want? We have a Lord who is most loving? What more do we want? We have a Lord who is waiting for us. What more do we want? without me asking for things he has given me billions of things. Allah He He is loving, he is forgiving. He has overlooked my shortcomings. What more do I want? That's Allah and that is the Lord of the Worlds. That's why when

00:47:01--> 00:47:02

we say

00:47:03--> 00:47:09

the theme of this event is a I have you seen that? Allah is

00:47:11--> 00:47:32

and I was tasked to speak about two of the names of Allah and these were the to Allah and Allah dude, imagine if we had to go through all of the 99 or more than 99 of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala would it not have been amazing so I want to give you some homework and that is

00:47:33--> 00:48:25

to go through the names of Allah and check their meanings and what they entail, and to try and memorize them. This is the reason why the Hadith says in Allah He Tabata Kawata Allah is atan what is in Isma me at an Illa Heda Manasa o Halophila. The Halal Jana, Allah has 99 names which if they are memorized and safeguarded and protected by anyone, that person will go straight to Paradise because by the time you have protected, understood, worked towards and believed in all of those names, you become a person who's connected with Allah may Allah subhanahu wa taala connect us with him in every way I could look holy ha That was SallAllahu wasallam albaraka ala Nabina Muhammad
