Bismillah your Walkman you're walking
away from it been in trouble that we'll find out
especially those sisters friends, once again instead of my
it's my first time here
So non foolishly inviting
I've been doing these lectures for quite a few years now and visiting many universities
around London area. This is in London.
This is the first time as we entered and saw the campus in the building to like, where
New Rochelle so we'll see the Kremlin's.
It's very beautiful architecture, which
seems like trees are very posh here.
As his word is at some all someone that
it's good to be there. It's always good to come to university, the first time I saw an invite, we said, you know, we have to
accept the invitation. Even the university royal good hideaway decided very, very posh Royals standing here
the topic that we have, as our brother just
advertised. And you'll know that we're going to taste
the Mercy of Allah, the mercy of God, for someone in France, to try to
translate or not, I'll use a lot of Arabic
phrases, words, texts, but I try my best to
translate, translate them, of course,
the very common words which are not normally translated by example, but
you know, try to translate that as well
as Muslims, one of the basic beliefs
that a believer a Muslim has almost half, which just the brother just alluded to,
you an email away and hopefully we'll reach out
Eman and faith is in between
and hope. This is a basic calculator with a basic attitude. And must be must have that internal data Dena coffee with Roger Ebert believe, is between hope of the Mercy of Allah, and also the fear of being punished by Allah, God in the next life. And hence avoiding those things which Allah has prohibited and avoiding them and getting the balance right.
If there is imbalance, if there is more hope, or it's just hope,
in a way that the person just does not feel
a loss of handle
excessive hope, and a person just
sits on that hole, and really relies on that hope that there is imbalance which is considered to be wrong. And likewise, if somebody has too much field and God would punish me God and punishment alone punishment is sin for committing this sin or that same. And there's imbalance from that aspect and that is all sorted. And we have to get it back in structure, this is what the whole deal with is.
My topic is of course, the mercy of a lot, but I will have to touch upon a bit of the aspect of also not having to show because then it will sort of try to balance it out slightly. So this is an attitude every believer must have.
The first surah the first chapter of the Quran, we all recite it many times.
Daily in our prayer, temperance, daily, regularly we recite Surah 230, the opening song in the Surah one of you know, Allah says
in the Surah the first verses and hamdulillah there have been at me all praises for Allah all praises for both the modem, the modem for worlds. And then the second and the third attribute that Allah mentioned to describe himself. The first attribute is Raghu Lila me, the Lord of the worlds the world refers to
human kindness and jinn kind that we believe in.
And also all the different, you know the words of the animals, the words of the humans.
So that's the first actually that Allah uses to describe himself with all praises of God who is the Lord of the Worlds. And then a rattler Rahim. You can say, actually to an attribute number three, or we can just consider them to be one attribute, and that Allah says, Many Kiyomi D,
the Owner of the Day of Judgment and the day of reconnaissance, that's the third attribute. And then after that, the sort of goes on to mention how we should ask ALLAH and you should ask Allah for keeping the steadfast on Serratos theme, which is the straight path and the right path. So three attributes mentioned three or four,
the middle attribute,
second or third, for just a second, Myrna Rahim significantly in this first solar, the first chapter sort of referred to her the opening that happens the opening chapter of Quran, which is probably one of the most important chapters of the whole Quran, to the point that some of the early Muslim scholars, the commentators on our own, they stated that the Quran the surah converted to have is the
whole of the Quran is a summary of solidified. This is the main conclusion and the rest of it is like, you know the details often so this is the summarized version of whatever's in the Quran. In this surah despite many other places of the Quran, Allah subhana wa gyla always more or less, combining these two aspects, wherever Allah mentions His mercy, so that someone doesn't have too much open the Mercy straightaway, Allah mentioned his punishment, and you know, avoiding sins and hellfire. And whenever Allah mentions about his punishment whenever God describes the you know, the punish punishment in the hereafter, so that someone doesn't lose hope Allah straightaway mentions
and recommend mercy This is generally found in the Quran, Allah says, often in Zambia, or copied into
sort of heavy heart very dummy or Cognito. Allah is someone who forgive sins and He accepts repentance. But before you get too carried away with that, straightaway, in the same sentence, you just take your breath above the value of Alboreto don't get too too relaxed. This is what Allah says. Should he did FRB is excessive in his punishment. Likewise, most parts of the Quran, but in sulit, Alfred had his opening Sula is a place where Allah does not do that. When we look at attributes, there is no mention of his attributes of punishing or wrath or anger. This tells us one thing that by default, by default, the main attribute of Allah is the attribute of verse
and it's not just from this deduction or the this what we've deduced from this surah this is actually mentioned in a prophetic statement, Hadith, same of the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon us. When he says that relating from Allah he says that Allah says that in romantic Sabha.
Indeed my mercy has overcome as overpower is predominant over my anger and wrath. So by default, the main name of Allah is mercy. That's by default, but that is the mean that is only mercy there is also the punishment. So anyway, in the sutra, to Fatiha
Allah says hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen after that a Rahman Rahim. These are the two more you can say one attribute both referring this is also in the opening phrase that every Muslim uses Bismillah R Rahman Rahim in the name of God in the vehicle law, we translate it by using different translations, the most compassionate, Most Merciful. But really, in reality, in actual fact, it's actually difficult to translate these words. There are many terms like that in Arabic language.
The meanings are so intense and so unique and so deep that any language translation in any language English, German, French, whatever, any language, it is difficult to do justice to that word, the word taco.
We can use our 12 different different words to describe the word love, and those 12 things and much likewise, the word adult might cause the word but anyway, that's another topic. All right, mother Rahim.
The most compassionate, Most Merciful there's actually a slight difference between the two
Rathmann from which is from the word of rational, rational means nurse in the name of Allah Rama.
Rahim both merciful, right? But the difference between the two is a Rockman refers to the extensive nature of God's attributes of Mercy
extensive. In other words, Allah's attribute His mercy is actually the mercy. His mercy extends every human at every being and everything in furniture.
Not just humans, animals and even inanimate objects. Allah has extensive. This is what Dr. Moniz reported. It's very extensive, it touches upon and he comes into contact with every creation of about whereas a Rahim
refers to the intensive nature of loss attributed place. Allah's attribute of mercy is very intense, when it reaches a creation, a person a human being, that it's very intense, very deep, excessive.
This is the difference between a rock merge and upper. And that's why it's actually some of the translators, that sort of translation of Quran when they say hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen of Iraq Maria Rahim.
One of my teachers who you mentioned we have a translation of English and this is how he translated it to say, Marathi or Rama
mother Most Merciful, the extensive nature
and a Rahim very merciful was the opposite way around. When his extensive what is intensive around the Most Merciful
extensive Rahim very, very merciful on one person. So it's extensive and it's very much it is very intensive as well. You know,
the aspect of Allah's mercy in terms of its being very extensive,
extensive which applies and content your content to everyone.
This is how Muslims believe in the realm of mercy and the mercy of Allah. And its manifestation is in the world in the dunya. This dunya is this word after the next time, the manifestation of Allah's extensive nature of the attribute of mercy is manifested in this world in dunya. Whereas the intensive
aspect of Allah's Mercy is manifested in the next and this is why some of the early Western scholars in the context of the famous statement they say that I learned duniya Rahim. Allah is the man in the dunya he's the right man in this world, where Rahim and he is Rahim in the next one, because yes, every individual will receive some portion of the Mercy of Allah man, human, non human, you know, whatever creation of Allah. But in this world, the intensive nature of Allah is not manifesting because his alignment is not completed on one human being will one creation this world. This is the reason why in this world if there was an intensive nature of Allah's Mercy on every single one of
us, then you will have no hardship no difficulties no problems no no nothing, no illness, no sickness, but this dunya this world the way it was created the way Gods created it, it's it's in between two worlds.
gender paradise, which we believe is full of bliss. There is no sadness there is no sort of there's no difficulty there's no hardship. There's no financial problems, there's no economic problems. There's no studying codes, Royal Holloway University and getting a degree there's no marriage problems. No no no that there's just no problem you can eat as much as you want and not worry about going to sugar.
Just keep on eating whatever is there. No problem no stomach problems. Here are what gives us an error in this world. We have to be very careful that we need to know how people would question
nice drinks and Crisps healthy food
we have to worry this dunya
it's a combination of hardships Gen is just bliss. Paradise is just bliss, no sadness. Whereas we have Hellfire wherein there is only sadness there's only so it's only difficult employee punishment. There's only pain there is no good but as duniya this world is in between the two you get the good with the bad we get difficulties hardships with goodness in America. Oh sorry.
from Middle East, there's difficulty hardship. And this is how Allah deals with us in this life. And that's why Allah has asked his attribute of wrath, Rahim
is not fully manifested in this world, it's going to be manifested in gender. And also, this is what the Muslims believe as well, that as the attributes of mercy, the attribute of mercy, sorry, attribute of Rahim, merciful God, but the attribute of Rahim, because it's going to be in paradise, it will be manifested in paradise, it will be intensive way, a person will not have no hardship. Hence, it will only be reserved for those who believe in God who obey His commands, and those who fulfill the obligations and the commands that God has
obliged them to carry out in this way. It's not where we
were as a Rockman, which is the attributes which has the extensive nature, it doesn't matter whether someone rejects God believes in God, when someone swears at God, whether someone says I don't believe in God, God is still having mercy on someone denies Allah so it denies GOD, ALLAH is still having mercy on them in this dunya because it's extensive, regardless of whether you believe in God or you don't believe in God, whether you someone's obedient when someone obeys the commands of Allah or someone disobeyed the commands. So it was a righteous person or a non righteous person, someone's pious or non pious, someone's oppressive, repressive, someone will violate everyone's rights, God's
rights or not, doesn't matter Allah wills deal and this is actually mentioned in many verses of the Quran. This is called the Split Raj, this is we just in this world, we just leave you to it. Then suddenly, when when you when death costume and all the punishment is a next line. So Rama is Allah's attribute and quality and then his characteristic, his super, there is extensive applies to every one and everything that every being man, human, animal, Muslim, non Muslim, whatever, but Raheem with the intensive nature of Allah's mercy and that is only reserved for the next slide and only for those who obey and Commander, sorry, those who only obey the commands of Allah, those who are
obedient and those who believe in it as well. So anyway, this was just a slight explanation of this rack mount and this rack mounting Rahim the two words that we always recite at hamdulillah could have been either me or Rahim.
And as I will say also that by default,
Allah has attributes, His main attribute is the attribute of Mersive attributes as well as using the following recipe series. Now if I love the I love the community chakra
What is Allah gets? What does Allah you know, what is what is he?
What does Allah earn by giving you a punch? If you show gratitude and you believe, what does Allah earn, it's not that Allah likes and he enjoys punishing, his main attribute is an attribute of nurse
and there are numerous texts in the Quran. So, amazing texts are unhealthy and talk about this aspect of
Allah's mercy. So, his main
attribute is the attribute of mercy.
But the issue is that this does not mean that if Allah has attribute is the attribute of mercy, and he has and he forgives, and he is very compassionate, he is very merciful. This does not mean a must not. This must not mean that people just sit back. This means that we should take benefit, we should take benefit of that Mercy of Allah, we should must not lose hope, which is one of the greatest of sins, the famous verse which is known as the verse of hope. Will you regret the elderly? Who either confused
or otherwise set sail messenger say to myself, same to my sleeves?
Yeah, well, yeah, I by the end of the asstra, for Allah and fusi. Those who have wronged themselves or precedents have wronged their souls committed sins by at the demands of
the attacker to the raw data. Do not despair, do not lose hope. In the Mercy of Allah, it's actually considered to be one of the greatest sins and slump, to completely lose hope in the merciful in Allah the author will deliver to me. Indeed, Allah will forgive all sins in number one affordable for him. He is indeed very forgiving, very merciful. But again, in context, we understand these verses. We have to take benefit. We can't just be neglectful. We can't just
To lay back and say okay, no problem. It's all about mercy and God will forgive everything that we just sit back. This what this message, this what this verse is giving us the message and many other similar text is that we take benefit we carry on turning, we continue to turn to our sins are being committed committed. If Allah's commands are being violated, if we are committing wrong, actions, wrong deeds are being carried out, continuously keep on going, monitoring ourselves and turning towards repenting seeking forgiveness. This is what this is saying. This does not mean that Allah is forgiving, and he will forgive all sins and His mercy is very extensive, and hence, therefore, Allah
will forgive all sins, and we just don't think about repenting or don't even have remorse in the heart, then for them, these eyes of these verses do not apply to those type of people. This is why in another verse, Allah says, well, the DNA of idols are patient.
Although and for some of those people who commit obscene acts, since
when the really the final fashion a lot everyone first of all, they oppress themselves, the kuruva, but then they remember God, the cellphone Allah, and they seek forgiveness.
The Lord forgive them. The tours end of the verse.
Whenever you serve who I am,
as long as they are not insistent, they don't insist.
They don't insist on committees. They're not proud of this.
They're not proud of this. It's they feel there's remorse in the heart. And they continuously keep on turning to Allah subhanaw taala.
So we have this, this is what we need to do. The meaning of Allah's Mercy is that we need to take the benefits of this great attribute. This is why we have something called dopa, which is repentance in Islam, we have is still far there's actually a slight difference, which I've already mentioned, is the fact seeking forgiveness. Toba means repentance is a slight difference between the two
that we have these things Tober What does Allah say no Quran to whoever you're learning to Google Allah He told me to do so how are you believe? Repent to Allah repent to God make sincere repentance,
this doba and the system for
repentance and seeking forgiveness from God from Allah.
Allah has panel data isn't emerging this, He is the One who created us. He created humanity he created human beings and created us, he placed within us the urge to commit sins. And along with it, he also gave us the remedy.
He sent the money to salatu salam,
peace be upon him, in peace be upon him, as his Khalifa is
successor in the world in the dunya.
And even before sending him to the earth,
in Jannah, in paradise,
Allah made you commit a mistake, you will use the word mistake here, so that humanity and human beings
they practice committing sins and mistakes. And then Allah Himself taught him how to seek forgiveness for the love of other women rugby tournament.
Allah says in the Quran that Devon received from his known words, Allah His teachings are so unique, that not just in the Quran, but even in the Hadith, there's Drassanes applications, we as human beings, we are not fit enough. We don't even have the words, correct words, to even seek forgiveness. That's why they say this because there's three types of forgiveness or talk, you know, sober, one is you know, seeking forgiveness from committing sins, repenting and see if you have us forgiveness because of the sins that we commit to. Number two is seeking Allah's forgiveness and repenting from not being able to do good things. And the third level is seeking forgiveness because
of the deficiency in the forgiveness.
repenting because I was not able to repent as is your right.
So this is quite unique in this that allows panel to either heat and there's so many Hadith that teach us all the grace one one of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon himself.
He taught us he was divinely guided.
He taught us how to make God. If it was meant to us, we would be to suspection we don't even know the words how to speak to him what he taught us. And this is why all this prophetic to us these certifications are very important. So in the Quran, Allah said, we taught with Allah, Adam, Adam received from his loan words, because of the mistake that was committed. And that mistake was committed by as you know, what was on the misgiving from Shaytaan. And the reason Satan, but anyway, Allah made him do that.
Right. And the DUA Allah told you, he received this formula. He received how to seek forgiveness, and that derives in the Quran, repelled
by the learner with the hammer and Hakuna kasidy Very strong, powerful supplication. supplication, and I'm better but I'm not Oh no, we have learner and we have oppressed ourselves around us.
From the veranda and we don't have the letter with our hands, if you don't forgive us, if you don't have mercy on us.
It will be up in loss.
So this was something that Allah may peace be upon him to do in the world, in the in paradise in gender before kind of coming into the world. And Allah created this nature and human humanity to commit sins.
As you know, angels, angels don't commit. It's not just that the document says they don't have a nature to commit sins.
They don't have what?
To be much brother.
Nobody's going to stupid.
Angels don't even know they don't even feel like committing sins.
are humans more righteous or angels more righteous. There's a message like discussion,
who are more praiseworthy? Who do human beings have a higher status more on level for the angels? There's a massive discussion books and response on the summary which means the majority take us as to be correct. And the majority opinion is that
the special human beings are above the special elite, the elite of the humans are over the elite 100 agents who are elite of humans, the profits for the profits. And so you can you know, be the messenger some of them love it and send them they are all above the elite Jubran Eve.
All these other prophets, right?
And elite of the angels are above the regular menu. We just remember you, me and you,
humans to children either movies like Angel Gabriel and all these angels they are above the regular human beings and the regular human beings.
The normal ones are above in status, according to Allah over the regular ages. Human beings have a status above the angels. Reason being is because angels no big deal
because Allah did not create in them the ability to commit a sin. Allah did not create in them it's not the nature if a blind lines in blind man says I never committed a sin. I don't watch at them.
Okay, what was there to watch? Someone, someone was good, no hands. I've never smacked anyone in my life.
I've not raised my hands, that means my spouse
and doesn't have a life.
Someone doesn't have a particular organ, what's a big deal? Angels, they don't have the ministry to itself. And this is why actually in the Quran when Allah was sending the peace be upon him to the dunya as his Khalifa honey for too long. That's why we say an incentive for evil to God if another human being is the success of Allah, representative of Allah in the earth when he was sending
Adam and the rest of humanity This is the first would be
so when Allah was sending the money so to set up to the earth,
the angels when he created Earth
and created how peaceful
Where did the Helios
I tells ya Luffy have a UFC two v one oh yes people do not notice and pick up the hammer because of the Sulak Are you sending creating and sending into the world into the earth? They
who will cause destruction facade in the earth?
And shed blood? Sure.
In the world
was destruction and shedding of blood.
Why do you need to create
another question like that? We are here. We're not gonna lose a bill. We are here. We have to do something we praise you We glorify God, we glorify, What did Allah say in response?
You don't know. I know what you don't know. Don't ask.
I know what you know what you don't know me, I don't let it
and then Allah make them teach. I never I don't smell cooler from our automatic melodica but um, the when you get smart, you have all that input from soldering. He taught him all the specialities and the names of certain attributes of certain crazy creatures and objects. And then he told them, he didn't teach the angel and he and he.
He taught the angel, he told the other instrument told him to inform the angels about it. So anyway, the point being here
is that when Adam peace be upon him, was sent. This is the difference between angels and humans. Angels don't have a nature. They don't have the ability to commit suits.
Whereas human beings do, and this is what makes humans great. This is the point.
This is what makes humans Great. Despite having this extreme desire. Despite having this extreme, lustful nature,
greed, humans, lust, humans, jealousy, we
hatred we possess. It's part and parcel of every human resources. I don't fall in here, hatred, No, that's wrong. It's part of the makeup of the human to have these attributes. But what happens if someone is good, righteous doesn't hate, they have learned to control that you will, I will, we will never eradicate eradicate a blameworthy character trick. And that's not what Islam even asks us to eradicate jealousy impossible. Otherwise, we will no longer humans. Islam doesn't say eradicate jealousy, doesn't say, eradicate lust.
Eradicate anger, yes. And the other is a blameworthy can to treat it sinful.
We have to, you know, control it not eradicated, control it because they may there may be some way sometime maybe in a race situation where there is a correct manifestation of that particular trick.
Right? Self defense, you know, someone's no idea whatsoever, and someone comes and starts abusing your parents, your mother or your father was just just about to, you know, pull the trigger killed.
My dad is gonna die.
Please don't do that.
If you do one on one, or whatever, and that's gonna die.
Nothing happens to you, because you've got to either.
So this is why during if there was a need,
likewise, the last full aspect.
There was no real. None of you will be studying here, some of you will be.
But wanting a career, like a job, you will want to jobs. There's that aspect of wanting dunya.
So some portion it remains with every human being. But we have been taught to control. So this is the difference between angels and human beings, angels. They don't, don't they do not even possess the ability. They don't have this within them, the nations not such that they like to come in wanting to come and sit there as human beings, Allah sent you and beings He made peace be upon him, commit a mistake in the agenda in paradise before coming into the world, and then towards him, the DUA this application the way to the way to seek forgiveness and he sought forgiveness. He asked about forgiveness, He repented, and then this was taught and by through Adam to the rest of
humanity, all the children of Adam, right.
Then we will commit sins, but at the same time, like Adam peace be upon him was toward
the simplification. We as humans, we have that Allah has given us this, along with
have the ability to commit sins. Allah has given us the special weapons or the special method to you know means of remedy the situation, which is kotoba, which is called Mr. Fogg.
And before talking about Toba, I just wanna talk about nobody's too far. But this is something you know, this dua.
Oh, all the prophets, if you see many prophets, there are verses in the Quran that talk about
many, many prophets, praying to Allah. I just mentioned Adam, and how Peace be upon both. They said Robin alumina and for Salah
Hannah and I couldn't remember how city new keys be appointed.
What do you say Noah? Yes.
His supplication in the Quran in surah verse 47.
He also prayed to Allah use the word mercy in his in his supplication, either on how I said my lambda for Lana wicker Hannah, if you don't forgive us,
we will be lost new peace upon him. He said, Dr. Lee, what are having a communal house a same kind of wording or law? Oh God, if you don't forgive me, if you don't have mercy on me, I will be from those people who are losers. Eunice is
another prophet of Allah in Syracuse when a gene has a metric called Hola. You know, he was adamant about attacking me so when a gene that I've met
give us salvation with your mercy he mentioned mercy. Musa Moses crispy upon he said Antonia Yuna for Finland our Hamner. Again what handle and Rafi Oh Allah Oh god You are our Protector with a unit of Allah forgive us what Hannah and have mercy on us. So the man peace be upon him in the Quran. He said Well attending the Iraqi political right because Allah He or Allah enter me out of your mercy in amongst your righteous servants. The people in the cave was having gone through the program most Muslims tried to recite on Friday. And even though now we are technically moved into Saturday Islamically because there might be some key comes before the day. So after sunset, we move into
Saturday, but it's a very famous Surah Surah to kind of the people of this habit of God. Yeah, most of you know the story
the young people you know, there's nine of them. And then I'm sorry, I don't want to so I mentioned the story, but they also when they when difficulty hardship is the daughter of Benin, Dena Minda dune Kurama Oh God Oh God give us from your from you mercy will have given me a Medina Russia and show us the right path
at our messenger, the final messenger so
namely versus the many heartbeats.
Allah says to him, in the Quran, vocoder rub Bill fear what
are messengers say? Robin Phil, oh Lord, forgive me. What ham have mercy for Hunter Hello Rohini you are the most you're the best of the merciful people. And not just Allah was
wrong right now Ramana Maharshi. And he noticed that he actually encouraged and taught and commanded and instructing his messenger to seek the Mercy of Allah of God, he actually gave the attribute of mercy to His Prophet and this is why we have Allah is the noble irony. The load, sorry, Oh c'mon is neither here. And the messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him is promised to be the island. He is also a source of mercy. And actually he mentions it in a hadith in the rational to move it up. Indeed, I am a mercy that as gifted to Boris to Robert Merton, who couldn't have been sent to as a gifted mercy. In other words, Allah is the giver of the gift, we are the recipients of
the gift, and the gift is the mercy of the messenger of allah sallallahu there are seven of us and Tim has graduated in Italy a mystery. Don't just stay just like Allah is that what I mean? is the Lord of the whole of mankind. Law of the world, the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him is mercy of for that either means all the words not just even humans, humans, not humans, animals, planets, His mercy for Jupiter, Mars, Venus, whatever, every creation of Allah, just like Allah is, you know, merciful is the Chinese the lord of every creation, the messengers of Allah or your Salah is does not seek towards every question was asked, and the messengers of Allah How do you
send a message to others? Who would make I don't have time to go through them but many of us in the Quran in the Sunnah like in the Quran, we have grace supplicate
shoes like these are some things we should make a habit for and offer our hand and rubella to the Coronavirus later etc, etc. But anyway, moving on
Allah subhanaw taala he created human beings, he made it part of our nature to commit sins. So impossible for a human being not to commit a sin. It's part of our inherent nature make, right? This is why there's a hadith in
sort of Timothy, a collection of Hadith universities are allowed to send and receive investments we have plenty to say said, Could nobody have thought Who would have thought enough to abou every cent of
every cent of earth it's not just me.
do oppose every cent of
all I mentioned once in a talk that once I was engrossed in Syria somewhere, somebody asked me so what's your name? So I said my name Muhammad ibn add me son,
you know, my father's name.
So he said to me look to the music.
Listen to that, so what's sold especially
as a two brother by the way, and even though I didn't mean to
buy this item, and then of course our Father, Father, so anyway.
Good new buddy item, a hot dog.
Every son of Adam, which doesn't doesn't mean only men, even women, sisters, every human, every man woman, every child of Earth and help, please be upon.
They are since
every one of them.
There are serious. Kotaku and the word Kotaku in Arabic is actually used as, as a form of exaggeration. Caught up in Arabic means a sin. The one who commits a sin is hearty. The plural of that is how the old Hadith should have said, blueberry I don't know how to rule. Every sin of Adam is a sinner cartoon. Hapa is MOBA Allah exaggeration, except extremely simple, extremely simple. And Hatha actually is a word which refers to major things mind since some people shall not even consider to be sins just like a mistake. And this is why it's the belief of the Muslims that the prophets are not sinners. They're all infallible according to the mainstream and heat of the Muslims is that no
human being is infallible except the prophets of Allah, from Adam, peace be upon HIM TO JESUS peace be upon him ASA Musa, Moses peace be upon him, to the final messengers gonna love all of them. They are not assume you're infallible. Now, not assume that I'm terrible. This is the basic attitude of the Muslims. But this hadith is in Qatar, Qatar is like a mistake, which is not even a sin, it's possible to you knows, like they say to
The more of the same in Arabic, not only that, even some minor mistakes.
Some minor mistakes,
of the F of the prophets is sometimes you know, taken seriously by Allah. So
this hadith says every set of their sinful Well, whoever needed to baboon the best amongst them, is the one who repents. This is what this verse is talking about. It's basically that don't just you know, have too much mercy or too much hope. And just, you know, the simple aspect is to what, just become complacent, not even turn to online, a person living a life where that person just violates all the commands of Allah violates all the commands of the fellow human beings. He disobeyed Allah, He disobeyed God, he disobeyed Allah, he doesn't believe in Allah and he's proud of that fact. There is no remorse in the heart. There is no
repentance, there is no thought in the mind for what moment that's where it becomes very scary. All these verses in the Quran telling us this, this is the message that's been given that do not yes, you will commit sins but keep on turning to Allah, everyone will commit sin. That doesn't mean that it's okay you know, Allah will forgive so it has committed sin. No.
This is like what remedy? What did I say remedy? We know that when we get ill, we can go to a doctor.
there is medicine. Does that mean that okay, there is a medicine
Have you get in so I can go and get the medicine? Some people might do that at an office.
Some people might have, you know, some, nowadays you can try to make money out of lots of different things. So, you know, yes, let me bang my car and have a crash so that I get some insurance, you know, people try to do that. I mean, that that's just if you get if you have an accident, then yes, you have a remedy that, that you can claim or whatever. But people nowadays, like I was just in the news yesterday that, you know, it's especially in the London area, it's gone really high, where people are making all this fortune, crazy claims, and whiplash and this and that. So people with intent, intentionally they will get injured, just for took, you know, to get some money. But anyway,
this is what this toolbar is. It's like a medicine, repentance, forgiveness, the Merciful nature of Allah the attribute of mercy. It's like a rarity.
That if you don't intentionally sin, a person should not intentionally sin that a person should continuously in his or her life, try their best not to commit a sin. But it's possible that despite trying despite really wanting not to commit commit a sin, it's possible that sometimes somebody may just commit to say that if you do that there is help at hand. It's not that if you commit a sin, or you violate Allah's Command that said, you're doomed forever. No, there is always the help is always there. If you're driving on the M one motorway, yes, you always have that card and you will call the AC you know, services or whatever. But that is a mean, let me just take my cotton puncher. It's okay
enough. Okay, I've you know, broke down the road, no, the breakdown cover would come, they will come that is how you know, at the back of your mind, I'm trying my best to drive carefully. I don't want to have an accident. I don't want to break down, I need to get to the Royal University. Yet. My tires, though, doesn't mean that if I've got help at hand, that's it. It doesn't matter. So this is exactly how our attitude should be. We try our best to be careful never to disobey God to always, you know, obey Allah only is to follow in the footsteps of his messenger peace and blessings be upon him, follow Allah and follow, follow His Messenger, obey the commands of Allah to Allah to Allah. So
that yes, if you fall down, sometimes if you make a mistake, if you commit a sin, if something goes wrong, then we always know that there is always help there to lose hope of that help. That is what's haram. That is what is considered to be a major sin. That's what is considered to be sinful. And that what that's what Allah says in the Quran that talk to the Rahmatullah in who they assume the role of Hendrie Illa Polka alone, only the ones who reject God, they only lose hope because they don't believe in God. So if they reject God, and they don't believe in God, then yes, they will lose hope if they do some things that say they just don't believe that God but those who believe in
Allah, those who believe in God and they don't reject God, then they know for a fact that they will never lose hope, because Allah they know of us and they will know the Mercy of Allah. So, this is the message now we have done that is the fourth time through Toba tell you to Allah Who is the father and turning to Allah through repentance and seeking forgiveness, there's actually a slight difference between the two. There is a slight difference between the two and many of you know about just a reminder, many of the things that I'm talking about and many of you might even know about this.
But these are reminders. The Quran says whether care for enlisted crops and flowers we need remind, because reminding always helps the believers it's not always when we come to lectures, or we you know, read books or whatever, doesn't always mean that we are always learning something new. It's always reminded because reminder always helps. We all need reminders, future reminders. So Toba is repentance. The Quran says Do you know Allah He told them the Sahaba repent to Allah with sincere repentance. Right? This is very important.
Right the Hadith I just prophetic statement I just said globally I don't have to own every son of Adam children of having their own extremely excessively sinful. But while Bahia to woo, the best of these sinful human beings are the ones who repent. There's another Hadith, which is in sunnah of a man emerged as a sound heavy, but the messenger Salallahu Alaihe. Salam said evil with zombies come in the number one who repents from a sin common law number that is like the one who never committed a sin coming at them but the one who repent from a sin is like never to the point that this you know what this hadith means? This means that
when someone repents, it's not like okay, the person
committed a sin. And it's written in a book of records. And this is what it's called, I'm explaining this hadith, that this means that when someone commits a sin after that they repent, then when they repent, it's like completely rubbed off and washed away and wiped away from the records from the book of deeds. It's not like Okay, coming to the same, but then you know, January 22 You can take February 14 14th just came on line
15 repented no solid, it's just totally washed away. Even the angels are made to forget we know that every human beings we have two angels are different angels are protecting the Hallmark development we do the human config. Yeah, for
Keralan catch up. Yeah, the whole amount of value in the last juice of the Quran, Quran KTV every human human has angels with him with her writing and decoding good and the bad deeds right.
Now, these are these angels are known as Keralan KTV. By the way, one's name is not corrode and the other one's name is not
what people think like Keralan Cardi B is one name of one angel and crown Cardi B.
The courtyard and Cardi B basically one so but there's angel on the right on the angel on the left, the one on the right, you must know this rights,
the good deeds and the one on the left records the bad deeds.
Think you might have heard me or someone but this is quite commonly mentioned that we found that to elicit deduce from the Quranic verses and Hadith and listen to some of the texts that the one who writes and records the good deeds is actually the Emile the boss, speak.
The one on the left, can't do anything without asking. The one on the right doesn't have to ask the left you know, the one writes for writing good deed does not have to seek permission, you know from the one who's recording the bad news. You do a good deed they write it down. The one on the left was a Okay, may I right? No, it might repent. May I right? No, you might repent a third time may i right? No, you might repent don't and if he didn't repent, after that, yes, after a while, he will record it. So even before someone repents that it's not even written. But then if the sentence is not made, Toba is not made, then it's written, but written is like quantified or qualified that this
is subject to
subject to he has committed they say that subject to repentance, it will you know this is the presume that he will repent right he will repent sometime in the future. So this is so merciful nature of our religion or do you see basically anyone who has some sort of remorse regret
or remorse for remorse expected you feel bad you feel guilty? Then there is a lot of hope for that has all these actions in the verses of the Quran refers to these kind of people? Yes, those people are reading
Minerva, save us from being like those who have a complete harsh and hot hot, like a shaped demeanor hijab and Elisha told us what the Quran says, you know, more harsh and then stone, not even thinking about a sin. Not even thinking with a sin has been committed. Who cares? You know? Absolutely. Just Be courageous. Be courageous and proud and arrogant. And not even thinking that seems committed and there's no reward. There's no sad feeling. There is no bad fee nothing. That's when it becomes very, very dangerous. So DOMA is repentance, right? Doba is repentance which we must hope can choose to do a serious committed, no problem. Toba is dead. And even if many times the same, a crime is
committed, you repent, forgive, but there are conditions we all know remember know if Allah, what are the angle? You mentioned this and many of the scholars mentioned this is agreed upon that there's three or four four conditions for repentance number one, everybody else? Yes. Anyone? Condition number one.
Yes, but you just mentioned that you feel bad about it. And this remorse is Najam neither.
So you feel remorse number two
love to do once again.
Abstain then and then. Yeah, so that's another one as well. So I mentioned
so you stop coming to the city.
which means that you can't continue repenting, like someone's committing the sin was committed the same. Repenting doesn't work. Alcohol is prohibited in Islam. So drinking alcohol stuff.
In other words, I know
that you have to abstain, stop, and then the repentance comes, okay. And number three is to make a firm intention. Absolute firm, firm resolute New Year's resolution, this is your new Tober resolution, no firm resolution never ever to commit the sin in one slide. But that doesn't mean that if you if you do happen to commit it, that means, you know, the toboe was sort of canceled? No, as long as at that time, there was a resolution of the art.
That doesn't mean that you will never commit, you know,
there is you could even think in your mind, yes, I'm making the full resolution, but there could be a possibility that I might committed but as long as you make the effort a person we make I make you make that firm intention, next commit upset. And the fourth condition is that if these are sins that are connected to God, right, in other words, right, if it's the right a fellow human being, then it becomes this fourth extra condition. And as this is actually very important, is it which is that we have to seek forgiveness from that fellow human beings have given his dual fulfillments. Right. If I have, you know, borrowed some money. 10,000 pounds doesn't mean I seek forgiveness and that's it. I
don't have to pay the money back. There is no bankruptcy in Islam. We don't have the concept of bankruptcy.
Yet, you just see my company has gone bankrupt. Okay, move on, change your name and start another company. The author will have to pay the money in Islam, there is no bankruptcy. Right? This is very important. People don't realize this fact. It's okay. You can by law, you might get away with some things but it's coming to you every penny, every penny that we have taken unjustly or someone else would have to be paid back we know it needs in the next life. Everything This is why there's a hadith in Bukhari Muslim elsewhere. Sound at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that a man will come on the day of judgment and he will have so many good deeds and you know, all sorts of
good deeds. He is committed. He has practice in his life, but have a bottle of Chateau okay.
He swore at someone he slandered somebody, he consumed somebody's wealth unlawfully stole some wealth here. What would happen? He would have to pay this back with his deeds. So all his good deeds one by one, someone will come by you You owe me 10 pounds Okay, here this Did someone say you owe me this, you borrow this. You don't pay me rent or you know, whatever, whatever. And all his good deeds will be paid given to these people because the currency on the day of judgment in the next slide will be deeds, there's no pounds, there's no dollars, that's not the currency, the currency will be deeds. And once all these deeds will end,
then have nothing to do back. Okay, so what will happen? Now what? Now what's nice, he will go people will give the sense to him. And this person who came with so many good deeds in the next life and ended up not just having a good deed, but he will be full of bad deeds. So this is the fourth condition which is backbiting you seek forgiveness. If we've heard someone, we have to seek their forgiveness. If we slanted somebody seek forgiveness. If you know disrespected parents seek forgiveness because one of the greatest responsibilities in Islam is to not just respect and be rude and offensive to his parents. So if it's a sin that is connected to a creation of Allah, then we
have to seek forgiveness from them as well. So these are the conditions October, and then we have something called it's still fun.
What do we have so far Toba is repentance is still far as seeking forgiveness.
This is the same thing nobody still follow is there a difference?
There is a slight subtle difference between the two.
There is a slight sort of difference between the two.
A moment of Azadi is here already with you he says that
these three conditions are four conditions that are the conditions for what for a sincere repentance. Those conditions don't apply to us they
don't apply to Stefan. He's introduced this one we're going to learn from
is the fall is like for Tober you have all these conditions you need to make sure you need to first abstain and then you need to read the full resolution and you need to go and pay back the money make sure to add if you want you don't have to but you know this is what Toba is. It's a slightly longer process is the fall is something continuously done. It's like morning, afternoon evening night stuff robot stuff, stuff blah blah stuff robot the messenger so Allah trying to set him up when he says Walmart he in need stuff
Little Love and God said I am Umbra by Allah I seek forgiveness of Allah in one day 77 Zero hunts 17 Another rewire Myanmar.
So this is so far, continuously and you know to say something like a stuffed robot and Galena, we want to suffer Allah, I seek Allah's forgiveness, I seek Allah's forgiveness, we have something called say you do this the follow people do these things, there is a special supplication known as the leader or the you know, the best forms of seeking forgiveness. It's in the Hadith,
in Bali and
so, to make the Hadith the messengers of Allah, He says when whoever recites tax application of forgiveness, if you say it at night, if you say it in the morning, when you die, the person passes away for murder and in your movie, pass it on the day before even come up with a man or a woman, general parent and a woman call her in a day anyone says that night and he passes away or she passes away at night before the morning continues back for him in genuine person is from the people of gender. I don't have time to go through it. But you know, as the site is called, see those two people should make a habit of recycling in the morning or in the evening.
So that's just one or two more points, and then I'm gonna end Chava
so this is the Mercy of Allah, Toba and it's the fall brings about the Mercy of Allah Mercy of Allah means we take benefit, we use this amazing attribute of God, and we use it for our benefit, not become neglectful and not become courageous. Right? This is the main message that is being given.
But to abstain, like I said from sales is very important as well. And this is just like a remedy.
There's a hadith in Sahih Muslim. So he was doing a very important second most authentic collection of prophetic narrations Hadith,
where the Messenger of Allah has some lessons to be upon you mentioned, this is again, going to show that if there's some sort of remorse in the heart, then Charlotte has a lot of hope. There was this one man, the messenger, so a lot of why you said it was relating this so there was this man, he, he lived a holy life of sins and evils, you know, just a really bad light coming from every single crop. So when he was close to his death, he was very scared. So he said to his family, this isn't I'm not making this up from some storybook. This isn't. So he used it. He said to his family, he made a will
have the Hadith he made he made a world
and in the world,
what is he saying the world, he said to them, he said to them that if when I die, what I want you to do is I'm just so scared.
Okay, I'm just so scared. So I want you to
burn my body.
Burn my body, and the ashes.
Or the ashes, throw them you know, like in the air scattered them everywhere. They just get blown away in the wind.
I'm just so scared
to be punished by God.
So his family did that.
His family did that when he went in the next life. Last. But what happened? What Why do you do that? This this is the Hadith from overload relics.
So Allah first ordered all of his, you know, components to be gathered, and then he was resurrected. This is number five. Number five, the header. Why do you do this? He said men have sciatica. Out of your fear, oh my Lord.
Allah said to him that you knew, I mean, imagine this was like a foolish, foolish fact. Or in its worst case scenario. It's actually disrespectful to God because it's like thinking of.
It's like thinking that God can't bring you back to existence if your ashes are just scattered away. But he wasn't believing that he was just, you know, saying to him, this is all a ticket. I'm just so scared. Just burn your
candle. That's it. I'm just so scared. He said, Do you believe that you could be resurrected? He said Yes, I believe but I'm just so scared.
So Allah said to him, that because of this extreme remorse you had and was so fearful and scared, go.
He was forgiveness. He was giving forgiveness he was pardoned. Because this what he did imagine a life of no good deeds full of sins.
This is the extreme nature of the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. That's why there's a hadith. Like I said in the beginning
The arachnid Rahim is in Hebrew the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said that
Jarrell Allah for rabbit and the Jews, Allah has divided his mercy into 100 pots, how many parts 100 For unset during the who this item were to speak, he has withheld 99 of those parts by him what is that a fifth of the juice and in the earth he has only revealed or disseminate or sent to you one of those 100 parts 99 withheld by only one firm in Vatican useful cetera Hello, hello. That one part Allah sent into the earth through that one part this is inside here Muslim as well. So you can see from that one part, the whole of humanity and creation they show mercy to one parents show mercy to children, children show mercy to parents.
Humanity showing mercy is from that one portion of the Mercy of Allah 100 portions, and
even animals had a ton of identical half era and whether they have even an animal just you know, lifting its wings to protect its offspring is through that one portion of the Mersey formula
which means that 99 portions will be utilized. Next slide when we all need that mercy, it will be intensive, extensive in this world intensive in the next one. So this is very important final message and on how long we are ministration time. Okay, the final point is that how do we told us there is the fact that
seeking forgiveness people's lives can change and with so many examples of people's life changes etc, etc. And everyone talk about one of that.
Lastly, repentance we seek Allah's
Mercy will make us that far forgiveness, that's the meat the number three there's a third method
which is which is why just
because a hadith and Sunnah widowhood very important, famous collection of statements, one of the whole sudden books, remember who don't and is the famous hand. This hadith is known as Hadith musanze.
To some somebody already, you know, what happens is that
we have this legacy or the system in place where
each student when that student he or she begins studying the science of prophetic narrations, the teacher will teach one Hadith as being the first Hadith that is being taught.
So like myself, and most of the students who are studying any teacher, we started studying six books of Hadith or whatever, the first Hadith every teacher will teach will be this. That's why this hadith is known as Hadith will loosen some bit earlier Hadith which is has the continuation of being the first to be the first before every single.
Okay? It's integrated without but it's like, we heard this from our teacher as being the first Honey When that teacher was a student and heard that hadith and was doing some sciences. It was the first Hadith that he studied by his teacher goes all the way back, say all the way back to the messenger for Lucky's investment. But the more correct opinion is that stocks just to adapt very severely again, who relates from a savvy company have the Roma relational investments gonna last imagine 40 generations 42 generations continuation every single student led this ending of university imagine
that hadith which is what what is it?
That he is walking in there hello, hello. Hello Hello rackmountable Kota island in Handelman. Fill out your Henkelman
there those people who are messing with a rocky moon, those human beings who are merciful they are
those human beings who are merciful. You are humble from a rational Tabata Cotai, God most high Allah Most High
has mercy on debt. It hammelmann Ferraro, therefore show mercy, show mercy to the people on earth to human beings. How many of you are humbled and Allah willing to heavens knowledge through speaking to the ones in the heavens Allah will show mercy to.
So this is
a means Toba is one means is the fall for in order to attain an acquire
at the mercy of God, a strong means is to show mercy to others. If you want the Mercy of Allah, you have shown mercy to others, others, you know, complete humans as well as animals. And there's numerous texts talking about even showing
mercy to animals. In the universe of the Quran, Allah says in Wrath of God, He can even see
what does he say, in Rahmatullahi, but even in the the Mercy of Allah is close to
that's one word, you can use 10 translations and still
some, you know, that's a topic that someone has given the food delivered a few talks on this like two hours once it just topic of Assam. There's approximately 63 verses in the Quran that has been derived from the root word Si. I said, Have you ever seen excellence means affection doing something good doing something the customers every part of our life, you have to have si si in worship of Allah and dabbled Allah and Nicobar s sign with parents will be loaded the axon of social interaction, some, even in marital relations, some even divorce a lot. She's doing some in divorce. And even if we want to have divorcing marriages and work, then
he said happen I didn't want to see it or suddenly who wouldn't have done it even go through divorce.
Even business transactions, there's word that there's a word awful trade was the word excellent has been used, that the hydrological of will keep measurement, you know, business transactions, buying and selling to the point that even treating animals there's actually a hadith, famous Hadith. It's a horrible Hollywood, the messiness, a lot of what he was saying, he said, in Allah gettable, an equal sign if he couldn't shake, indeed, Allah has made excellent obligatory upon everything, to the point that even when you still should be able to have access to the backdoor for access to them, even when you have to slaughter an animal, because animal consumption is harder. And that's another topic. But
it's not just like in any way, shape or form. There are laws or restrictions, you know, there are laws and restrictions in place. And many of those laws were actually in this day and age. There are certain laws that make the animal halal, but there are certain extra etiquettes, which don't make the animal Haram is not acted upon, but it's disliked. But those are more or less non connected. Why, for example, one basic law is one animal should not be stored in the presence of the other.
Can that happen today when he was pushing 6000 70,000 chickens in in an hour, you know, just it's impossible that the whole consumption you know,
you know, times we're living in, so all these basic etiquettes and laws of even animals. So when you slaughter Stuart and then he said, When you hit that hurdle, CompTIA prata when you read the behind them, when you approach an animal, make sure you sharpen your knife, make sure you give peace and tranquility to the animal. Don't have a bloody knife, you should be swift, the animal should not even realize that you're going to slaughter it. There was one companion with he had the chicken or the animal and before he was portraying, he took them out those sharpening in front of the light, the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him. So we do what why don't you sharpen it at
home? Or sharpen it, you know, in the non presence of in the absence of this animal? Or you wouldn't you want to give it to deaths? It's already died before it's dependent.
Yes, we said at the you know, motor team, and literally seen as being you know, you seen I've been to avatars, it's good to have you see some of these chickens, you know, where they they know that they're next. Terrified. Seriously, they're absolutely terrified. You see them. I don't know if you can see that. I can see that on the face of the chicken. You can feed it. Imagine, you know, we want an alignment, you know, you're gonna be our heads gonna be chopped off. And next.
Of course, I have some advice and feelings as well. So anyway, this is what Epstein is. So basically, what does the what the verse when it Allah says in the Quran? In Ramadan, Kareem Mazzini. The Mercy of Allah is close to
close to the people of Sri. So if you want mercy of Allah, in conclusion, you have to do four things. Number one, what four things we do and one thing we don't do this is an intrusion. Number one continuously doba with other conditions, dependents, number two,
that's fourth I mentioned number three
show mercy to others, show mercy to others. And number four, Simon Simon is wake up in its comprehensive way to apply to in one's life to do everything properly correctly. Excellent. These are four things, if these were things we have in our lives, that we that we are making benefits of this amazing, extensive nature of Allah Asmus one thing we must not do is what? Be proud and arrogant and committing sins and just you know, not care whatsoever. I'm gonna do this sorry for that
Okay, shall we get them
to come back to your pace sometime soon.
