who Eli gamba kuliah, de mo, de Wiley, salaam, Alaikum, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, my brothers and sisters, remember on the Day of Judgment, each one of us will be in front of the Almighty, defending himself or herself. Because just like on earth, when you have a case against you, you will have to present yourself and fight your case. On Earth, you may have solicitors and lawyers, you may have advocates, you may have prosecutors, you may have so many and then you have the judge, and then you have yourself and you're in the box, and you have to answer questions and you have to defend yourself and sometimes it's not easy. So Allah Almighty has a vivid description of this, in the

00:00:55--> 00:01:38

Quran, verse number 111, of Surah tunnel, and Allah says, Yo Mati, Kulu, Neff sin to jar de la NAVSEA. On that day, every soul shall come defending itself, it will, it will fight the case against itself. So to Jordi, Lu and NAVSEA. It is defending itself with the arguments making arguments to protect itself to answer for its own deeds. So imagine you're on that day, you're going to be given a chance to say, what would you like to say? So Allah says, Every soul is going to try and defend itself.

00:01:39--> 00:01:46

And Allah says, what to what far condone of SEMA amulet wahome lie over the moon. Every soul

00:01:48--> 00:02:25

shall be given the full recompense of its deeds, and won't be oppressed in any way. Now, the good deeds and bad deeds, when you reconnect with Revelation, you learn that Allah Almighty will never punish you for something you did not do or you didn't engage in the sins of others you will not be punished for and you're not going to be punished more than the sins that you've committed, but over and above that his mercy dictates that he may wipe out a lot of those sins, if not all of them.

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

May Allah Almighty grant us from His mercy, that is the gift of Allah.

00:02:32--> 00:03:18

Brothers and sisters, good deeds are multiplied, but the bad deeds are not you connect with revelation you learn something amazing that when you do a good deed, Allah multiplies it based on your intention based on the conditions based on so many other factors. But when you've done a bad deed, it's one bad deed written against your name. That to Allah will look for every and any excuse to forgive you to wipe the sin, it will go completely so don't lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. continue seeking forgiveness. And Allah will forgive you totally. Imagine in the month of Ramadan, seeking the forgiveness of Allah during the day, at the time of power. And in the evening. And at

00:03:18--> 00:03:29

night, at the time of [???]hole. Imagine the Mercy of Allah descending and you being forgiven. And you should say Allah forgive me for that which I know that which I don't know.

00:03:31--> 00:03:35

Forgive me for the sins I've committed, knowingly and unknowingly, those that I did.

00:03:36--> 00:03:55

My human weakness, Oh ALLAH forgive me. So this is Allah telling us on that day, everyone's going to be defending themselves. But yes, the recompense is there. Still, our mercy dictates that we may wipe out whatever we want. And Allah Almighty reminds the rest of us.

00:03:56--> 00:04:34

When you are calling people towards Allah, make sure that with the knowledge that you require to achieve that, you need something very important that that is wisdom. Some of the scholars put wisdom before the knowledge and some of them say, wisdom is after the knowledge and some of them say, wisdom is after the knowledge but is applied before it. So you learn knowledge, and then you you have the wisdom and you apply the wisdom before you promote that knowledge, or propagate it.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

When we preach to people when we talk to them, when we want them to turn, how do we make them feel? Do we make them feel important? Or do we belittle them? If you're belittling someone, you don't have wisdom? You want goodness from a person whom You're belittling, you're yelling at? You're screaming at your swearing you're dooming This is why we say don't do that.

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

People, you are not the Owner of the Day of Judgment. Your job is, before you get to the end, try to convince this person to buy your product, what is it, it is that I want you to achieve success. And I desperately would like to see you in the Mercy of Allah.

00:05:20--> 00:06:10

So that's what Allah wants from all of us. And the reason why I make it my duty to convey the message is Allah has kept a great reward for anyone who spends a moment to care for others enough to want to see them rightly guided. So Allah says, one of the best things you could ever do is to spend the time trying to guide another person and if Allah guides that person, through your effort, you've made it mashallah you've made it Subhanallah, you've achieved something more valuable than the red camel, which is like, the best conveyance of the time. Subhanallah So, doesn't that show you the plan of Allah, you reconnect with Revelation, you reconnect with others, with human beings to help

00:06:10--> 00:06:16

them connect with that revelation Subhanallah amazing. My brothers and sisters.

00:06:18--> 00:07:09

Think for a moment of the melody of the Quran. Think for a moment of how beautiful it sounds, the different types of recitations, the different reciters Think for a moment how beautiful it was. It's all it is. It's not harsh. It's not hard. It attracts people just by the way it sounds. Why, because Allah knows you want someone to come. The way it is conveyed needs to be attractive. You need to speak to people with a smile, with a good tone. You need to speak to people with a beautiful message. You need to make them feel appreciated. You need to make them feel that they are important. You need to make them feel that you would love to see that they are guided, many of us lack this. We

00:07:09--> 00:07:33

do people we send them to hell, we call them names. We label them, we've already decided where they're going to go and we claim we are callers towards goodness. We haven't connected with Revelation. That's the problem. Reconnect with Revelation, go back and look at how the almighty addresses the Pharaoh who was terrible.

00:07:34--> 00:07:45

Look at how the almighty instructs the prophets to talk to those whom they were sent to. Yet they were prophets higher than you and I, by all standards,

00:07:46--> 00:08:02

Subhan Allah and we claim to be pious, and we claim to be wholly religious. And we chase people away from God Almighty, from Allah Almighty from faith. How could we do that?

00:08:03--> 00:08:20

So this verse, where Allah Almighty says verse number 125, of Surah, two Nan, who do Isla semirara Big Eben hikma, Allahu Akbar, call towards the path of your LORD with Wisdom. He speaks about wisdom first.

00:08:21--> 00:09:11

Call towards the path or the way of God the way of Allah. Call towards it with wisdom. hikma, well, no Eva till Hassan and beautiful reminders, beautiful reminders, speak to people make them want to listen to what you have to say because you've given them importance. You haven't doomed them, you haven't belittled them, your duty or you you considered it your duty to bring them along by the help of ALLAH to help them come forth. By the help of Allah. That's what I want. My dear sister, my dear brother, that's how you address people. You don't just yell at them, pointed them, make them feel small, swear at them, you know, mocking them, doing them as people do and claim to be religious. So

00:09:12--> 00:09:37

the closest people to Allah are those who are the wisest in approach, when they're calling towards the same Allah. The closest people to Allah are those who care for those who are far away from Allah in a way that they address them respectfully for them to come and recognize the same Allah. Wow. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah.

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

This is a verse that would actually, you know, change all of us if we thought about it. Reconnect with Allah, by reconnecting with people who may be distant from Allah to help them connect to the same Allah and see how Allah Almighty helps you to connect with everything positive

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

thereafter, may Allah bless every one of us and grant us all goodness and help us to help one another help us to spread the goodness in the best possible way with great wisdom and tact and that we address people and the arguments we present be the best arguments that are very inviting towards the truth Akula Cali hada are SallAllahu wasallam albaraka Allah Nabina Muhammad kita Boon
