Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, O Allah Rasool Allah He, while early he was happy as mine, my brothers and sisters, at times people get happy when we suffer a loss. And people get sad when something good happens to us. That's the nature of people sometimes. So I need hope. Why is it that when I achieve things, people become jealous, people want to do bad things, people actually

00:00:43--> 00:01:11

don't like it. And when something bad happens to me, they're excited. They're gleeful. They actually say, Wow, he deserved it, or she deserved it and so on. And they were praying for that Subhanallah the fault is this not ours, we shouldn't boast and brag. That's one thing. Because by boasting and showing off, we're actually diminishing the healing that is required in our hearts. In fact, we're creating disease in it. Because

00:01:13--> 00:01:48

showing off itself is a disease. Being boastful is a disease we need healing from it Allah says you know what, just be yourself of your life. You don't need to prove that you're a wealthy person by having these big chains and by you know, saying Do you know who I am and what I have and so on No, no, you have a not Mashallah live a simple life and be happy help others Masha Allah, Allah will give you a lot. That's a believer. But there is an example in the Quran in surah Allah Imran verse number 120 where Allah is telling us that you know what,

00:01:49--> 00:01:59

when they become happy at your loss, it's not going to affect you in any way. When they become sad at your victory. It's not going to affect you in any way. Listen to the rest

00:02:01--> 00:02:13

damasus como hacer una de su home? What? Toshiba come say doing f ra Hobi? What does biru ko les cadeaux homeshare

00:02:14--> 00:02:35

Allah says, obviously this is regarding the people at the time of the prophet or sell them but the lesson is for all of us. Allah says when good comes to you, it hurts them. And when bad befalls you may become happy by it. And Allah says, if you don't want all of that to bother you, you need two things. What what are those two things? We're in dust bureau What

00:02:36--> 00:03:21

if you bear sobor which means if your patient practice restraint, patients, and toccoa taqwa means God consciousness, be conscious of Allah and be patient. So continue to pray, continue to fulfill your obligations unto Allah continue to fulfill the obligations and abstain from prohibitions. Keep that relationship going with Allah, their patients, Allah says their plot can never harm you never harm you. Allah is all knowing. So that's something amazing because for me, it's very, very good in terms of healing. You know, the Battle of Bader was the one of the first major battles the first major battle that took place after the persecution of the Muslims. And when they were basically in

00:03:21--> 00:03:35

Madina munawwara now and coming back to Makkah, that entire time that Pro, that whole process, the first major battle that took place was the Battle of but the Muslims were very small in number, very small in number, and

00:03:36--> 00:03:48

the call the people of Quraysh, were actually more than three times the number of the Muslims. And so Allah makes mention of the help of Allah will occur, the nasaka mala will be better.

00:03:50--> 00:04:09

Remember, when Allah helped you through the Battle of butter, and you were small number, very small, Allah helped you. Wow. When I read that verse, I really feel so good, so good. When I read the history of the Battle of butter, I feel so good because 313 Muslims versus 1000 of the

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

people of Makkah.

00:04:13--> 00:04:58

And Subhana Allah, Allah says, you know, we sent the angels, angels, Allah says, We sent 3000 angels to help you. And Allah says, if you have summer antiqua the same qualities that we mentioned earlier. If you bear patience and you have God consciousness, the taqwa Allah says we will send you another 2000 making it 5000 angels to help you right now. You may not see them, we know we sent them and they protected you. You achieved ultimate victory because of that. Subhan Allah. Amazing I believe in the angels we believe as part of our belief structure in the angels. They exist. And Allah sends the angels of mercy and protection to us, in order to grant us to comfort us in order to

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

give us in order to protect us.

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

That's amazing. So I'm convinced that when I bear sober, and I have Taqwa, then I benefit from this perk of having the angels around me, looking after me taking care of me by the instruction of Allah. And that's why when we need it, we'll call see and so on. It's reported that the angels are taking care of such people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us, goodness and hope, in his protection in his guidance. And may He always be there for us. I mean, now,

00:05:32--> 00:06:12

many of us would probably have, at some point engaged in something to certain levels to different levels, immoral, whether it's speech, whether it's perhaps the dress code, sometimes it could become something of a sexual nature that is immoral. It's also known as morality. Now, what hope do I have a person who's committed adultery, fornication, not dressed properly? Bad, vulgar words, really terrible accusation, so many different things. What do I do? What do I do? What type of Hope I need healing and I need hope. The first thing you have from Allah is hope. If you look at verse number 135, of surah, Allah imraan.

00:06:14--> 00:06:50

Allah says, One levina either follow fashion OVA, Allah moussaka, Allah for stavola don't obey those who commit any form of immorality on any level of immorality, including adultery, fornication, whatever else it may be. Allah says those who have wronged themselves in any way committed any sin. If they remember Allah and seek forgiveness, Allah says, and if they don't continue in their bad ways, so you need these three things. remember Allah, seek forgiveness and don't continue in your bad ways. Allah says, We forgive them.

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

We wipe out the sin no matter what it was completely, totally gone. And Allah says,

00:06:59--> 00:07:35

These people their reward, and their recompense is forgiveness from their Lord and paradise beneath which runs rivers flowing, I have all sorts of things so pan Allah, Allah says it those are the people who are they, the ones who committed the sins, but they didn't stay focused on the sin. They focused on the repentance. Remember, I've always said, people judge you by your sin, but Allah, judges you buy your repentance. Amazing. What type of healing is there in that statement? What type of Hope is there in that statement? people judge you by your sin.

00:07:37--> 00:08:20

Allah judges you by your repentance, lai lai, Allah. Hi. I'm so hopeful whenever I think of that, it's amazing. Here it is. Allah says you repented. Don't worry, it's over. It's gone. History. Don't do it again. Forget about it. So shaitan has his little new plan for people like that. He comes back to them, and he makes them doubt now you can't have been forgiven. So simply, it can't have been that you're forgiven. So simply, that was too easy. Allah says don't turn towards shape on seeking forgiveness of Allah is the easiest thing you could ever do. Subhan Allah is easier than breathing. Subhana Allah, when you ask Allah forgiveness is forgiving you before the next breath.

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

Look at that hope.

00:08:25--> 00:09:11

You're alive. You're a believer. You faulted you may falter for a long, long time. And you may falter right up to death because you're a human being. But remember, stay away from major sin and try and improve yourself on a daily basis. If you happen to fall back into the same major sin again, don't worry, seek forgiveness again. And don't go back to it. renew the vow not to go back to it again and you will be forgiven again. And again. SubhanAllah. Don't stop. So these are some of the verses that are filled with so much of hope. My Sharma Allah says, one at the Hainan one it has no you know, don't give up. And don't be sad or untold alone you will be victorious. This is speaking

00:09:11--> 00:09:21

to the people of the time of the prophets are seldom when they were faced with these armies and so much of difficulty, but obviously it's for all of us latter, he no one doesn't know. Don't give up.

00:09:23--> 00:09:54

Don't lose hope. And don't be sad. Don't be sad, you will be victorious. If you truly believe that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala says so, my brothers and sisters when you've committed a sin, no matter what it is quitted, seek the forgiveness of Allah and you're totally forgiven. That's what Allah says. If you want the proper conditions of Toba or repentance, Allah says you admit your sin. You seek forgiveness, you promise not to do it again. And that's it. You're gone, wiped out.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

I stopped the sin. I admitted it. I sought forgiveness from Allah.

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

promised not to repeat it again. There goes. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to turn to him at all times. May he accept from us our good deeds and forgive all our shortcomings, and may He wipe out our sins and make us hopeful that he has indeed forgiven us.
