that we as Muslims use and in agreement that the MDGs have
been a lot today because I found the standard last week. And we conclude this week with
the Mercy of Allah, the mercy of God.
We as Muslims, we should live a balance of fear of being punished by Allah, and hope in the Mercy of Allah. So today, hopefully we're going to learn about that attribute of Allah and delivering this lecture is Chef crafting Hamlet, even uncooperative, who has announced product and has studied Arabic language and various other traditional scientific including of C, which is Quranic exegesis, Hadith fit and he has studied this in different parts of the world, including the UK, Pakistan and Syria. These teachers include his father, Chef Madonna, Adam Schiff, use of
Chef moved in 130, the Somali
Academy and others, and he has received authorization in various Islam discipline, including the six major collections of Hadith. And sunnah, issuing readings. Some of his works include birth control and abortion in Islam, the issue of shares and simplified rules of the cup, which is charity, and he is widely known for providing answers to everyday issues, and comprehensive pick up later on, which can be found at his website, which is www.seannal.com.
In further ado, I'll just come back and check into hundreds of deliveries.
They'll also be question and answer. If you just start to write down the question on a piece of paper,
get them off
your document from the lowest level so that we
can kind of go along with
a welcome I've given them an environment that will let them know that
especially those sisters friends, once again, instead of mighty
the first time here
at this university.
So none of foolishly voting
we've been doing these lectures for quite a few years and I've been visiting many universities here around London area. This is in London.
But this is the first time as we entered into the campus in the building to like where
New Rochelle so we'll see the Kremlin's
it's very beautiful architecture we shall see seems like she's a very passionate
that's his word is that some or someone that
it's good to be here. It's always good to come to university the first time I saw an invite camp we said you know, we have to
accept the invitation. Even the university royal Royal Holloway to sign it very, very posh royal, standing here
the topic that we have, as our brother just
you will know that we're getting advertised at
the mercy of Allah the mercy of God
intends to try to
translate or not I'll use a lot of Arabic
phrases, words, texts, but I'm trying my best to
translate those translate them of course,
the very common words which are not normally translated by example, but
you know, try to translate them as well
as Muslims, one of the basic beliefs
that a believer a Muslim has almost half which just the brother just alluded to,
an email away and hopefully we'll reach out
Eman and faith
What is in between
this is a basic Akita basic attitude, a Muslim must have that emotional pain, a coffee or a job, ima 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 for it, let's just hope
in a way that the person just does not feel
ALLAH SubhanA without excessive hope, and a person just
sits on that hole, and really relies on that hope. And that is imbalance which is considered to be wrong. And likewise, if somebody has too much fear, and God would punish me, God would punish me alone and punishment is sin for committing this sin or that sin. And there's imbalance from that aspect and that is also wrong. And we have to get it back in structure. This is what the whole theme of
my topic is, of course, the mercy of a lot, but I will have to touch upon a bit of the you know, aspect of also not having too much hope, 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 a
day, in our prayers now from temperance daily, regularly we recite Surah, to the opening sewer, in the Surah, one of you know, Allah says,
In the Surah, the first verses and Hamdulillah, Robin it all praises for Allah, all praises for God, the Lord of The Lord of the Worlds. And then the second and the third attribute that Allah mentioned to describe himself. The first attribute is Rob bull either me, the Lord of the world's the world's refers to
human kind and Jin train 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 attribute of Allah uses to describe himself with all praises of God, who's the law of the world. 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 then Allah says, manicure with tea,
the Owner of the Day of Judgment, and then 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 Serato stopping which is the straight path and the right path. So three attributes mentioned do for
the middle attribute,
second, or third, for just a second, Myrna Rahim significantly in this first solar, the first chapter sort of refer to 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 Western scholars, the commentators on our own, they stated that the Quran the surah can fail 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 of offering them you have Alboreto don't get to relax. This is what Allah says. Should he do the FRB? He is excessive in his punishment. Likewise in most parts of the Quran, but in sudut, Alfred had his opening Sula is a place where
The law does not do this. When we look at attributes, there is no mention of his attribute 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 this.
And it's not just from this deduction or the this what we've deduced from this surah 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 Super to fight the heart.
Allah says hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. After that, R Rahman r Rahim. These are the two or 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 name of Allah, 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, there's another other man over here.
The most compassionate, most merciful, there's actually a slight difference between the two
Rathmann 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 rush. myrn refers to the extensive nature of God's attributes of Mercy
extensive. In other words, Allah's attribute His mercy is actually no mercy. His mercy extends every human and every being and everything in furniture.
Not just humans, animals and even inanimate objects. Allah is extensive. This is what other monies refer it. It's very extensive, it touches upon and it comes into contact with every creation of Ebola. 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 Well, let me say hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen or Rahman Rahim.
One of my teachers who you mentioned here the translation of English and this is how he translated it to say Iraqi Marathi or Rama
not the Most Merciful, the extensive nature
and Raheem very much 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 you know.
The aspect of Allah's mercy in terms of its being very extensive,
extensive it 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. 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 crash in 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 would have no hardship, no
difficulties, no problems, no nothing, no illness, no sickness, but this dunya this world, the way it was created the way God created it, it's it's in between two worlds.
Jannah paradise, which we believe is full of bliss. There is no sadness, there is no solid, there's no difficulty. There's no hardship. There's no financial problems, there's no economic problems. There's no study includes Royal Holloway University and getting a degree, there's no marriage problems. No, no, 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 eat, keep on eating, whatever is that no problem, no stomach problems. Here are what gives us an arrow in this world, we have to be very careful that we need to know how people in Russia
with agreements and crisps, how people
we have to worry this dunya
it's a combination of hardships, Jen is just bliss. Paradise is just bliss, no sadness. Whereas we have hellfire. When there is only sadness, there's only so it's only difficult to avoid punishment. There's only pain, there is no good. But it's dunya. This world is in between the two, you get the good with the bad, we get difficulties, hardships with goodness in the grocery store with ease, 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, the attribute of Rahim is merciful. But the attribute of Rahim, because it's going to be in paradise, it will be manifested in paradise, it will be intensive, when 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 very,
whereas 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, someone 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, whether someone obeys the commands of Allah or someone disobeyed the commands. So once a righteous person or a non righteous person, someone's pious or not is someone's oppressive, not oppressive, someone will violate
everyone's rights, God's rights or not, doesn't matter Allah will do and this is actually mentioned in many verses of the Quran. This is called the Split barrage. This is we just in this world, we just leave you to it. Then suddenly, when when you when death comes to you when all the punishment is the 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 Rahim is the intensive nature of Allah's mercy, and that is only reserved for the next life and only for those who obey and commanded, sorry, those who only obey the commands
of Allah, those who are obedient and those who believe in as well. So anyway, this was just a slight explanation of this rationale and this Ragman Rahim the two words that we always recite, and hamdulillah could have been either me or them.
And as I will say also that by default,
Allah has attributes. His main attribute is the attribute of Mercy attributes as well as using the format versus disease. Not
If I love the idea of becoming shackled to
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 is Allah Subhan Allah likes and he enjoys punishing, his main attribute is an attribute of nurse.
And there are numerous texts in the Quran, some amazing texts
that 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 is 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 and must not be, this must not be 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 first of Pope
Alia revival, the Seraph, who
also was a sail messenger, say to myself, same to my slaves.
By the end of the a search for Isla and fusi, those who have wronged themselves or press themselves in the wrong their souls, committed sins by at the demands of
the attacker to the rescue team. Do not despair, do not lose hope. In the mercy of God, it's actually considered to be one of the greatest sins and slump, to completely lose hope in the merciful in the world, the author of the new virgin me. Indeed, Allah will forgive all the 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 lay back and say okay, no problem. It's all about mercy and God will forgive everything that we just sit back now, 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 toward repenting seeking forgiveness. This one 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, these verses do not apply to those type of people. This is why in
another verse, Allah says, well Lavina is a patient.
Although and for
those people who commit obscene acts since
when they're really the filofax faction, a lot everyone first of all, they oppress themselves, the kuruva but then they remember God, the cellphone ALLAH and they seek forgiveness.
Allah will forgive them. The tours end of the verse.
Whenever you simply
pay, 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 grid 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.
But we have these things Dober. What does Allah say in the Quran? Do it Oh, yeah, you're gonna have 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 this is the HA.
repentance and seeking forgiveness from God from Allah.
Allah loves panel data isn't emergent this He is the One who created us. He created humanity he created human beings and created us he
He placed within us the urge to commit sins. And along with it, he also gave us the remedy.
He sent the Marines
peace be upon him, in peace be upon him as his Khalifa, his
successor in the world in the dunya
and even before sending him to the earth,
in Jannah in paradise,
Allah made him 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 just received from his known words, Allah His teachings are so unique, that not just in the Quran, but given 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 the scholars there is three types of forgiveness or talk you know, Toba. 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 loves panel to Allah heat. And there's so many Hadith by teachers, all the drawers were 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 left to us, we would be to suspect to we don't even know the words how to speak to him what he taught us and this is why all these prophetic to us these applications are very important. So in the Quran, Allah said, we taught but 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 taught him he received this formula. He received how to seek forgiveness and that derives in the Quran, proper. Susana, from Luna with the hammer and Hakuna Nijmegen Casa de very strong, powerful supplication, supplication or Budda Budda, or our Lord, we have learner and we have oppressed ourselves round.
Robin alumna and
Dr. Linda winter, Hannah, 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, in paradise in gender before kind of coming into the world, Allah created this nature in human humanity to commit sins.
As you know, angels, angels don't commit sins, and not just under no common sense. They don't have a nature to commit sins.
They don't have what
to be much brother.
Good to see.
Angels don't even know they don't even feel like committing says
are humans more righteous or angels more righteous. There's a massive 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. The summary which remains 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 of the angels who are elite humans, the profits for the profits and as a human, you know, um, via messenger, some of them love it and send them they are all above the elite Jabra Eve
all these other prophets.
And each of the angels are above the regular menu. We just remember you, me and us.
Humans that you're gonna eat and 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 agents 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 that. Haram. 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 it isn't
someone who doesn't have a particular organ, what's the big deal? Angels, they don't have the minister butson And this is why actually in the Quran, when Allah was sending out a piece of your pointing to the dunya as his career and money for too long. That's why we say an incentive for people to learn from other human being is the success of Allah, representative of Allah in the earth when he was sending
Adam and the rest of humanity this I think is the first would be
I mean, that's another topic.
So what Allah was sending out in my historical set up to the earth,
the angels when he created Earth,
and created how peaceful
where did they heal yourself? As your iMovie my UFC two v one Oh, yes, people do not notice of the Hamilton or the Sulak Are you sending creating and sending into the world into the earth? A creation?
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 creation like that? We are here. What is a bill? We are here. We have to serve you 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 Adam teach
Gula from Latin America, but um be when you get smart you have whatever input comes on the beam. 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 if and he
he taught the angel he told the other on Instagram and 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 sex.
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. I scored in 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 blame
Have you had to treat it sinful?
We have to, you know, control it, not eradicate it, control it because they may there may be somewhere sometime maybe renal restoration, 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 and your father was just just about to, you know, pull the trigger killed.
Okay my dad is gonna die.
Please don't do that.
If you do one more, one more volume and that's going to die.
Nothing happens to you because you're going to either.
So this is why there is there was a need.
Likewise, the lustful aspect.
There was no real. None of you will be studying here, some of you.
But wanting a career, like a job, you will want good jobs. There's that aspect of wanting duniya.
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 nature is not such that they like to come they want to come and sit there as human beings, Allah sent you and beings He made Adam peace be upon him, commit a mistake in the agenda in paradise before coming into the world. And then toward him the DUA this application the way to the way towards 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 taught the simplification. We as humans, we have that Allah has given us this along with the ability to commit sins. Allah has given us the special weapons or the special methods or you know means of remedy the situation which is kotoba, which is constant far.
And before talking about told I just wanna talk about nobody's too far. But this is something you know, this dua,
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 to find both, they said Robert aluminum and masala welcome Dr. Lera. Otter, Hannah and I couldn't live in a house at New Keasbey appointment.
What do you say Noah? Yes.
His supplication in the Quran in surah good. Verse 47.
He also prayed to Allah use the word mercy in his in his supplication either on how I said lambda for Lana, aka Hannah if you don't forgive us,
we will be lost new PC upon him. He said we don't fully water having a communal house a same kind of wordy Hola. 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 there.
Another prophet of Allah in Syracuse when a gene of ametek called Hola you know, he was enemies about attacking and he said, Why don't you
give us salvation with your mercy he mentioned mercy. Musa Moses peace be upon him. He said Antonia Yuna for Finland our Hamner. Again what handle and Rafi Oh Allah Oh God, you are of protector with a unit Filipina forgive us what Hannah and have mercy on us. Soon a man peace be upon him in the Quran. He said we're attending the radical right because he or Allah enter me out of your mercy in amongst your righteous servants. The people in the cave was having God so the program was looking like most Muslims try to recite on Friday and even though now we are technically moved into Saturday Islamic and because they're made to Islamic economy before the day so after sunset, we move into
Saturday, but it's a very famous Surah Surah to cut up for people who haven't gone yet. 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 so I mentioned the story but they also when the when difficulty hardship is better. Dena Miller Dunker oh god over give us from your from you mercy. Well hey get on Medina Russia and show us the
The right path
at our messenger, the final messenger, some surgeons, namely versus the many athletes,
Allah says to him in the Quran we're gonna rub Bill fear we're
all messengers say, Robin Phil. Oh Lord forgive you were hung have mercy for Hunter Hello Rahimi, you are the most, you're the best of the merciful people. And not just Allah was
Ramana Maharshi. And not just that he actually encouraged and taught and commanded, instructing his messenger to seek the mercy of a love of God, he actually gave the attribute of mercy to His Prophet and this is why we have Allah is the noble irony. The Lord, sorry, Allah is Nana Rahim. And the messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him. His Prime Minister is Ireland. He is also a source of mercy. And actually he mentions it in a hadith in the rationale to move it up. Indeed, I am a mercy that has given to Boris to Robert Merton, who could have been sent to as a gift is mercy. In other words, Allah is the giver of the gift. We are the recipient of the gift, and the gift is
the mercy of the messenger of allah sallallahu Taala I even sent him a lesson to him as grammatically it was just talking to the Muscovy, don't just say, just like Allah is that what I mean? Is the knowing of the whole of mankind. Law of the world, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him is mercy of for did either means for the world's 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, messengers of Allah by yourself is does not seek towards every question as well. And the messengers of Allah Allah
sent a message to us 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 supplications like, these are some things we should make a habit for. And often what Hannah and Robin, Robin and Anita etc, etc. But anyways, 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 tearing timidly a collection of Padiglione messages are allowed to send and receive investments if you're planning to set a goal to bury them.
every set of
every setup, it's not just me.
Okay, I'm giving you a hose every set of
you know, I mentioned once in a talk that once I was think I was in Syria or somewhere, somebody asked me so what's your news and I said, my name, Muhammad ibn had given me some,
you know, my father's name.
So he said to me
so what's sold?
To Brother by the way, and even though I didn't mean to
buy this item, and then of course, our father, go further. So, anyway,
good nobody either mahatva own
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 his viewpoint.
They are since
every one of them.
There are serious katalon and the word Kotoko 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 heartache. The plural of that is how the old Hadith should have said blueberry Adam, a hottie who every sin of Adam is a sinner cartoon. Ha Ha is mobila exaggeration, excess, extremely simple, extremely simple. And Hatha actually is a word which refers to major things, minor things, some things which are not even considered to be sins just like a mistake. And this is why it's the belief of the Muslims and the prophets are not sinners. They're all infallible, according to the mainstream and cleaner the Muslims is that no human being is infallible except the prophets of Allah.
From other 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 assumed they are infallible. Now not so terrible this is the basic effect of the Muslims. But this hadith is in Qatar Qatar is like a mistake, which is not even a sin it's possible to use like this AC or to
The more of the say in Arabic, not only that even some minor mistakes,
some minor mistakes
off the F of the prophets is sometimes you know, taken seriously by Allah. So
this hadith says every sin of their sinful will Hey ricotta needed to baboon best amongst them is the one who repairs. This is what this verse is talking about. It's basically that don't just you know, have too much mess or too much hope. And just you know, the simple aspect is to watch, just become complacent, not even turn to Allah, 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 one 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, but it is a remedy. We know that when we get ill, we can go to a doctor.
We know to get there is medicine. Does that mean that okay, there is a medicine. So let me get in so I can go and get the medicine. Some people might do that. And
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 find 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 it was just in the news, just in that district, especially in the London area, it's gone really high where people are making all this fortune and Craig claims, 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 remedy.
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 dragging 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 country took a
nap for okay, I've you know, broke down the road. No, the breakdown cover would come do 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 always 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 Allah to Allah Rasool
that yes, if you fall down sometimes if you make a mistake, if we come into saying if something goes wrong, then we always know that there is always hope 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 talks to the Rahmatullah in who later sooner Roshanda Hill, old cat LOL, 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
was hoping to do something that's in difficulty. There's nobody later on but those who believe in Allah, those who believe in God and they don't reject God, 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 instead of our tiny little, Stober tell you to Allah who is still far. 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 that just a reminder, many of the things that I'm talking about and many of you might even know
But these are reminders. The Quran says whether care or enlisted crops and value 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 reminder because reminder always helps. We all need reminders, future reminders. So Toba is repentance. The Quran says do it Allah He told them the Soho 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 are having their own extremely excessively sinful. But why am I here? To wobbu the best of these sinful human beings are the ones who repent. There's another Hadith, which is in sunnah of a man emerge as a sound Hadith, but the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, does evil with zombies come in the number one who repent from a sin canon number that is like the one who never committed a sin. Commit number. 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's going on 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 22nd, repented, February 14 14th Just came online.
Coming to this thing, 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 that different angels are protecting the Omak development we do the human config Yaffa
Keralan Khatibi yada whatever the value in the last juice of the Quran, the robin KTV every human human has angels with him or with her writing and decoding good and bad deeds. Right.
Now these are these angels are known as Carolyn KTV. By the way, one's name is not Carolyn, and the other one's name is not
what people think like that is Carolyn Cardi B is one name of one angel and crown Cardi B is in the courtyard, and Cardi B basically one so but there's angel on the right. And the angel on the left, the one that writes us know this writes
the good deeds and the one on the left records the baddies
I think you might have heard me or someone but this is quite common mentioned that we found that to listen to us from the Quranic verses and Hadith and listen to some of the text that the one who writes and records the good deeds is actually the Emile, the boss, so to 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 with 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 Hey, okay, may I right? No, it might repent. May I right? No, you might repent a third time may i right? No, you might you can don't and if he didn't repent, after that, yes, after a while, you will recall it even before if someone repeats that story been written, but then if the sentence is not made, tilde is not made that is written, but written. It's like quantified
unqualified 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 in Adana you know remorse for remorse expected, you feel bad, you feel guilty, then there is a lot of hope for that person. All these actions, the diversity of the Quran refers to these kind of people. Yes, those people are really,
you know, nearby, save us from being like those who have a complete harsh and hot hot like a ship do middle agent Elisha Toka Swan, the Quran says, you know, more harsh and then stone, not even thinking about a sin, not even thinking whether a sin has been committed, who cares? You know? Absolutely. Just Be courageous. Be courageous, and proud and arrogant. And not even thinking that sin is committed and there's no remorse. 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 series committee. No problem. Toba is that and so even if many times
it's in a crime is committed, you repent, forgive, but there are conditions we all know, remember? No, if I can have Allah, what are the angle? You mentioned this and many of the scholars the 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, for sure. Well, you just mentioned that you feel bad about it. And there's remorse is an exam letter.
So you feel remorse. Number two.
Look to do it again.
Obtain that, and then yeah, so that's another one as well. So I mentioned that they will be there.
So you stop committing the sin.
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
near the bottom not at 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, you know, firm resolution never ever to commit the same in one slide. But that doesn't mean that if you if you do happen to commit it, that means, you know, October was sort of cancer not as long as at that time there was a resolution to the art
that doesn't mean that you will never commit you know,
there is you could even think in your mind yes, I am making the full resolution but there could be a possibility that I might commit it but as long as you make the effort a person we make it make you make that firm intention net it's committed. And the fourth condition is that it these are sins that are connected to God right? In other words, right? If it's the right a fellow human beings, then it becomes a 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 fulfilling his right. If I have, you know, borrowed some money. 10,000 pounds doesn't mean I see 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 say 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 how you can buy low you might get away with some things but it's coming to you every penny, every penny that we have taken and just me or someone else would have to pay back. No it needs in the next life. Everything. This is why there's a hadith in Bukhari Muslim houseware sound at the Messenger of Allah who 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 has
committed. He has practice in his life, but have a bit of a shadow. 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 pay you You owe me 10 pounds Okay, here this deed someone will say you owe me this you borrow this you don't pay me my 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 and the next one will be deeds
is no pounds, there's no dollar that's not the currency, the currency will be deeds. And once all these deeds will end,
then have nothing to do with back pain. So what will happen? Now what? Now what's nice, he will those people will give the sense to him and this person who came with so many good deeds in your next life and not just having a good deed, but he will be full of bad deeds. So this is the fourth condition which is backbiting we seek forgiveness. If we've heard someone, we have to seek to
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 towards 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 so far is 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.
Imam Al Ghazali is here only with Dean 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 Toba. 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 all that 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 will Allah stuff robot the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would Hadith he says Walmart he in need a stuffed through love and God. Sabrina McGraw by Allah I seek forgiveness of Allah in one day 77 Zero hunts 17 another ally of Myanmar.
So, this is so far, continuously and you know to say something like a stuffed robot and
stuff robot I seek 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 for us, he says when whoever recites that application of forgiveness, if you say it at night, if you say it in the morning when you die, the person passes away for Merton in your movie, pass it on the day before even comes in is the man or woman general parented and the woman caught her in the day anyone says that night and he passes away or she passes away at night before the morning of the new spec formula regenda person hears from the people have genuinely I don't have time to go through it but you know, as the site is called, see those people should make a habit of recycling in the morning or in the evening.
So that's just have 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 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 must do is a very important second most authentic collection of prophetic narrations Hadith
where the Messenger of Allah recent lessons in the economy mentioned. This is again going to show the movie this some sort of remorse in the heart, then Charlotte has a lot of those this one man, the messenger, so a lot of why you're saying he's relating this so there was this man, he he lived a whole life of sins and evils and
a really bad life. committed every single company.
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 isn't that he used? He said to his family, he made a will
have the Hadith he made he made a world
and in the world
Okay, what did he say in 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.
All 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.
his family did that.
His family did that when he went in the next slide. Last. But what what why do you do that? This this is from Oprah who relates.
So Allah first ordered all of his, you know, components to be gathered, and then he was resurrected, and says, we will find into Lima five to have 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 would make 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, it's just all the ticket. I'm just so scared just by me. You know, having this condom. That's it. I'm just so scared. They said, Did you believe that you could resurrect? Yes, I believe that 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 forgiven, who was giving forgiveness he was pardoned, because this what he did, you mentioned, 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, none of Rahim is in the Hadith with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said that
Jarl Allah for rabbit and the Jews, Allah has divided his mercy into 100 pots, how many pots 100 For unset during the hook this item with the speed, he has withheld 99 of those pots by him, what is that a fifth of the juice. And in the earth, He has only revealed or disseminate or sent only one of those 100 parts 99 withheld by him. Only one firm in Valley can use all that are 100 color. That one part Allah sent to Google Earth. Through that one part, this isn't a Muslim as well. So he could be from that one part, the whole of humanity and creation they showed mercy 20 parents show mercy to children, children show mercy to parents.
Humanity showing mercy is from the one portion of the mercy of nothingness and proportions. And
even animals have done have identical half era and whether they have even an animal just you know, lifting its way to protect its offspring is through that one portion of the Mercy of Allah
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 I don't know how long we are nearly finishing time. Okay. The final point is that how do you tell us that is the fault they're
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 so we seek Allah's
mercy, we make a step up forgiveness, that's the means. The number three there's a third method
which is which is watch.
There's a hadith and Sunnah widowhood very important, famous connection statements. One of the whole sudden books soon enough remember who don't and is the famous Hadith. This hadith is known as Hadith Busan, Santiago de Santiago, Chile and you know, what happens is that
we have this legacy or a 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 seven bit Alia, Hadith which is has the continuation of being the first to be the first before every single country. Okay, it's integrated without but it's like we heard this from our teacher as being the first Hadith when that teacher was a student and heard that hadith and was learning some sciences. It was the first Hadith that he studied by his teacher goes all the way back from zero all the way back to the Messenger of Allah is
that the more correct opinion is that it stops just to adultery. Sophia, you cannot really know who relates from Asahi can only have the blood Roma released from the messenger is going to last imagine 40 generations 42 generations continuation every single student led this ending of universe merging
that hadith which is what is
washing mean, you're comfortable around their handle right now with a barcode if you have Handelman fill out your hand to manifest
those people who are messing with a raw human, those human beings who are merciful. They are
those human beings who are merciful. You are homophone rough man to work with God most high Allah was tight.
has mercy on them. It Hanuman Ferraro, therefore, show mercy, show mercy to the people on earth to human beings. How many are here Hanselman Sama, Allah wanting to heavens knowledge and speaking for once in the heavens, Allah will show mercy to you.
So this is
a means Toba is one means is that for the audit to attain and acquire the mercy of God, a strong means is to show mercy to others. If you want the Mercy of Allah, you have to show mercy to others. Others, you know, compete humans as well as animals. And there's numerous texts talking about even showing
mercy to animals. In a in a verse 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 a topic of SR. 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 in the customers, every part of our life, you have to sign in worship of Allah and dabbled Allah and Nicola sign with parents will invite a big accent and social interaction, some even in marriage relations, some even divorce Allah, she's doing some in divorce and even if we want to have divorcing marriages and work, then
he said Have fun. I didn't want to suddenly who wouldn't have to get son even go through divorce.
Even business transactions, there's word that there's a word awful COVID was the word excellent has been used, that the hydrological often came measurement to know business transactions buying selling to the point that even treating animals there's actually a hadith famous Hadith it's a Hollywood the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in Allah data via an equal sign if he couldn't shake. Indeed, Allah has made excellent obligatory upon everything, to the point that even when you store a lot of action, whether the battle for x, you know, even when you have to slaughter an animal, because animal consumption is harder. That's another topic. But it's not just like in any way, shape
or form. There are laws there are 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 mean 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 slaughtered in the presence of
Can that happen today when he was torturing 6000 70,000 chickens in an hour? You know, just, it's impossible. The whole consumption you know?
You know, times we're living in misery. So all these basic etiquettes and laws of even animals full time. So when you slaughter, Stuart and then he said, Well, you hate that had a commercial product when you read the behind. 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 stutter if there was one companion if he had the chicken or the animal. And before he was portraying, he took them out goes shopping in front of the night, the message of love, peace and blessings be upon him. So we do. What Why don't you sharpen it
at home? Or sharpen it? 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.
We said as a you know, motor team. And literally seriously, you know, you see, I've been to avatars it's good to have you see some of these chickens, you know, whether they know that they're next terrified. Soon, seriously, they absolutely terrify you see that you can, I don't know if you can see that. I can see that on the face of the chicken, you can feed it. You mentioned you know, we want an alignment, you know, you're gonna be our heads gonna be chopped off. And next.
Of course, these animals have solid life and feelings as well. So anyway, this is what exon is. So basically, what is the what the verse when it Allah says in the Quran, in Ramadan curriculum was at the mercy of Allah is close to
close to the people of Sri. So we 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 a confusion, number one continuously doba with other conditions, dependence 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. Next, and these are four things if these four things we have in our lives, that we that we are making benefits of this amazing extensive nature of Allah Asmus and one thing we must not do is what be proud and arrogant and committing sins and just you know not care whatsoever. Shall I'm gonna do this. So at the time of
Okay, shall we then
we'll come back to your pay sometime soon.
Thanks everyone for coming days refreshments if you would like to do
