If we put Allah subhanho wa Taala out of that equation, we've lost everything. And this is why always remember your maker. I was saying we would get so excited if someone important were to come here. But
imagine to meet your own maker. If someone says, Come, we've got to go and meet our medica, the one who made us, Allahu Akbar, that can only happen in Jannah. That can only happen in Jannah. So how many of us are preparing to go into paradise? And one of the quickest ways of preparing to go into paradise is to seek the forgiveness of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah repent, we turn to Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah to forgive our sins, the more we seek forgiveness, we will be become people whose status is elevated as time passes. Once I told a young man, he told me give me some advice. I said, constantly ask Allah's forgiveness. He said, But what if I did nothing wrong?
What if I did nothing wrong? Then I had to sit and explain to say, Do you know what is still far and repentance is such that whether you know what you've done wrong or not, you continue seeking the forgiveness of Allah sometimes for for anything and everything even that you know that what you don't know. And even if you feel that you are trying your best to be as strong as possible, when you constantly ask Allah's forgiveness, your status is elevated you become more conscious of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Once all your sins are wiped out, those statements will come to your rescue in your grave, and in your life after death. So you continue worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala and
seeking His forgiveness. This is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as perfect as he was, he still used to engage in repentance 100 times a day approximately plus or minus, some generations make mention of a little bit less, and some go beyond that. So who are we? We are not messengers we are not perfect. Why is it that we find ourselves calling ourselves good Muslims, but we haven't yet asked Allah has forgiven us. A week has passed, a month has passed, sometimes more than that has passed and we haven't even thought about it. So my brothers and sisters extremely important for every one of us to constantly ask Allah's forgiveness so that we can be considered good Muslims. We
ask Allah's forgiveness, and we do not harm human beings. We do not harm the creatures of Allah subhanho wa taala. In fact, so much so that the ecosystem should be
at peace from our harm. We should be the last people to even think about damaging the ecosystem and environment because we are muslimin
