Shaitan is now upset because you regret, he's

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

so angry.

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

And as you seek forgiveness he comes back

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

to you. He says, oh well done. That

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

was so good. But But you know what?

00:00:11--> 00:00:14

You committed such a big sin, such a

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

big sin. You can't just be forgiven so

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

easily. That's shaitan's plan again.

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

That's shaitan's plan again. You committed such a

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

big sin, you can't just be forgiven so

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

easily.

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

You think you after you committed zina, you

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

can just say

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

Oh Allah, I regret it. I don't want

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

to do it again. Help me. Oh Allah,

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

I won't do it again. Forgive me.

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

Shaitan tells you, do you really think you

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

committed such a big thing? Do you think

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

just by that much you're gonna be forgiven?

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

That question alone

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

is enough to destroy you again.

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

What happens? You lose hope in the mercy

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

of Allah, which is worse than the first

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

sin you committed.

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

Because one of the names and qualities of

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

Allah, in fact many names and qualities of

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

Allah are connected to mercy. He is most

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

loving, most kind, most forgiving, oft forgiving and

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

so many other names where Allah says,

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

don't ever lose hope in my mercy. That's

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

what he says in the Quran. So the

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

mercy of Allah.

00:01:14--> 00:01:14

He is

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

You know what that means?

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

He is the most merciful of all

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

those with mercy.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

Amazing.

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

Amazing.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

The most merciful from all those who have

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

mercy, Allah.

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

And you're doubting him?

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

That's from

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

shaitan.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

Don't ever lose hope in the mercy of

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

Allah. What are you doing? Losing hope in

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

the mercy of Allah. So you're going against

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

a verse of the Quran.

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

And what is that? That's dangerous.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

Allah says he will forgive. Indeed Allah forgives

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

all sins.

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

So when you seek forgiveness, shaitan comes back

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

and makes you think for a moment that

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

you know what? You're not forgiven. If you

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

listen to his whispers,

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

You're going to fall back again and again

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

and again. And then what happens? Now you're

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

far from Allah. Because why? You start believing

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

I'm too dirty. I'm too unclean.

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

I've committed too many sins. I'm not going

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

to be achieving the forgiveness of Allah.

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

I'm lost. I'm already gone into Jahannam.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

Now, there's nothing left for me besides to

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

continue this life

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

of distance from Allah.

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

Then you've fallen into the trap of shaitan.

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

Come back my brother. Come back my sister.

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

Don't think that way. Go back to the

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

mercy of Allah.

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

Recognize

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

your Maker. Learn about Allah, His names, His

00:02:51--> 00:02:51

qualities.

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

Learn about who is Allah.

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

Learn about the forgiveness.

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

Learn about the others in the past like

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

the story of Adam alaihis salam. The lessons

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

powerful.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

powerful.
