And we've seen our peace and love and sanitation. So beloved Nabil Mohammed salatu salam, to

00:00:35--> 00:01:13

spice up your family, to his companions, and all those who follow us and until the end of time, Allah subhanaw taala places to be steadfast in front of the vessels for luminous life, and in his companionship with the author. Meanwhile, hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah, we have together once again for this July lecture, unfortunately, not in the masjid. And we pray that soon we will return to the massage for us here in South Africa. It has been four weeks now that we have not been together in the massage. And our lockdown has been extended history, the present most of Africa has extended our lockdown for a further two weeks time of crisis, really changing the world in which we live and, you

00:01:13--> 00:01:52

know, bring a new reality for all of us. This is really as many of them as I have said that it is one of the great artists of our time in our generation. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to assist us in this test, to guide us to fulfill our purpose and our objective. These are a reminder for us may we be reminded and mindful. And when we come out of this, this, you know better than the people we were even elect today in Shall I think, with the message that this lockdown will continue. And with the crisis continuing, it is of utmost importance for us to speak about hope and to speak about the mercy of Allah to speak about things that keep us uplifted. This weekend is also the Easter

00:01:52--> 00:02:26

weekend that when many of our fellow friends and neighbors are Christian, you know, colleagues and friends, they will also be going through similar kind of hardship not being able to congregate in a place of worship during this Easter festival. And in fact, for those of us who live amongst Christians, we should understand that in terms of Christianity, the most important event on the calendar is not Christmas, or holiday, it is Easter. And you know, if we look at the important for us to know, the essence of Easter or the essence of what Christians believe happens here. They believe, of course, that it was on on a Friday that Jesus Christ was crucified. Of course, we deny

00:02:26--> 00:03:03

that and we say as Allah says that he was not crucified and he was not killed, and he will return in the future. Around the belief the Christians, the incorrect belief is that he was crucified, and he died. And then he was resurrected on on Sunday. He was resurrected on Sunday. And the whole purpose and the story Why? Why was Jesus crucified? Why was he It is a good? What is the purpose of this? This goes back to a fundamental belief of Christianity, a belief that all Christian groups and sects, Protestants, Catholics, all witnesses, and this is really the fundamental of Christianity is that they believe that when our father Adam and his wife or mother who they ate from that forbidden

00:03:03--> 00:03:40

tree, that they became cursed, the souls became tainted, and all the offspring as until the end of time, inherited the sun. And doesn't matter how much Toba is defined how good you are as a person, you are born with this curse. And this curse, means you will go to jahannam forever and ever and ever. And Allah will never forgive all of humanity became cursed through this. And so what is the purpose of life? Well, the only way to get rid of this curse is a sacrifice needs to be made. And that sacrifice is the death of Jesus Christ. I mean, His resurrection is that you need to accept him in your life. Of course, furthermore, they edit the Trinity to that believing that Jesus is actually

00:03:40--> 00:04:18

a law himself. So a lot coming down sacrificing himself to himself, to remove his son, which we didn't do this we of course, disagree with and this is not the our theology, our theology, rather is that, that we acknowledge that our father and our mother either Melissa salami come with us. And then Allah subhana wa dalla teaches a very profound message. Listen, that in spite of the sun, in spite of how bad the sun was, and yes, that they tasted the consequences of it, they depart from Jana as per Allah's plan. Allah then says, Allah turn to them in repentance, and Allah they taught them that this is going to be this is the message of life, that you will go through life you'll be

00:04:18--> 00:04:55

presented with this you and your offspring. Allah will give us the guidance how to come through these tests. If we come through it, by the grace of Allah, we will succeed and if we fail in these tests, when still there is hope for us through Toba is different. So this weekend for the Christians, it's all about repentance and returning to God. We also insha Allah, we want to use this opportunity to talk about repentance and returning to Allah, especially in the light of this virus we we know part of the cyst is also a consequence of the sins that we have done and the sinful lives that we have laid. Allah Subhana Allah says, Have you were to hold them account Also, if you were to

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

hold mankind accountable for what they earned, you would have a

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

For them the punishment that surely we would have been a severe punishment on us if Allah subhanaw taala really gave us what we deserved. And Allah says, and if Allah had destroyed mean, for the sinful noise, he would not leave on the earth a single creature, but he spikes mankind until an appointed timespan Allah, Allah is practicing if he really gave us what we deserve, when the punishment that is deserving on mankind for all the wrongs that we do, as violence isn't always injustice, look at what we are doing to ourselves how many millions of people are starving at a time when we have more food than this planet can eat with so much of it is destroy the wars that we do

00:05:38--> 00:06:18

the diseases that we have caused as a result of the oppression that we have. So almost as if all this evil that we do, if we were paid for what we have done, the veiling could be so bad that not a single living creature will remain on the earth. But Allah subhanho wa Taala has pardoned most of the what we have done and he leaves it to an appointed time. So the sins that we do within each of us as soon as there is no none of us that is perfect and they they are some of us that are deep in some committing major sin and they are some of us will and Allah they are trying day in and day out to try one step forward two steps back, this is the nature of inside is how we have been created and

00:06:18--> 00:06:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to commit sin, so that we can turn to him is the fire that was the purpose is a hadith where the Prophet says that if we were a creature occasion that did not sin at all, Allah would have surely replaced us with a creation that did some so that we can turn to minister far because what we get in return from Allah subhanaw taala is so much more beautiful when we return back to him in in ecfr and tober. So today inshallah we talk about the hope of the sun, what hope can we have, even though we've lived a very sinful life, no matter who you are, what you have done, let us all think about those sins that we are most ashamed of. We don't believe in in

00:06:57--> 00:07:33

confession to any human person. It is only a law that we confess our sins. So we listen which as we sit here today, in this walk of Juma on the day of forgiveness, we think of all those really, really dirty sins that we hope that Allah subhanaw taala never exposes us never hold us to account today. Insha Allah we believe that Allah can forgive all these sins, and the first way in which we can distance forgiven, his throat is still far and Toba. And we need to understand the difference between these is the hardest to ask forgiveness, stuff for a lot of stuff for love. And it's the fire is something which is a constant part of our daily life. Then abyssal Salam says that he makes

00:07:33--> 00:08:09

his day 570 times a day at least and he is the person who have never committed a sin. So for us part of our daily cleansing as you know, today we talk about washing your hands. So what are you really we should wash our souls? Are you ready for the mistakes that we do when we look at something haram listen to something haram say something haram sometimes it's more sometimes it's big. The constant purification is just to set a stop ferroli Allah forgive me have mercy upon me for all the sins that I do knowingly unknowingly Allah I don't know. But those things are being recorded. So it is continuous make seeking forgiveness for all the sins we have done. The past and the present. doba is

00:08:09--> 00:08:51

a far more deeper form of Easter far Toba is deep repentance. And usually this is specific, where is the far is for something which which we might not know it might be general though but his item with the sunya Allah and you tend to Allah I knew you received a lot for his for his forgiveness. And Allah subhanaw taala wants us to know that when he when we invoke him, whenever we turn to Him, whatever time of the day or the night he is, and we ask him for forgiveness, no matter how bad the sin is, Allah says, and whoever does evil or wrongs himself, whoever commits a sin against himself, and afterwards seeks Allah's forgiveness, He will surely find a law of forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:08:51--> 00:09:31

This is a promise from Allah subhanaw taala Allah basically suiza He promises that no matter what sin you do, if you turn to Allah afterwards, you will find that Allah subhanaw taala is accepting of that repentance. In a beautiful Hadith the Prophet Muhammad says, Allah to explain the happiness of Allah subhanaw taala pleasure Allah subhanaw taala has when someone turns to him in stefarr and tober, Hardy says, Allah has greater joy at the repentance of one of his slaves. Allah has so much pleasure in when we make this difference to him so much. So that compares the one who would have over his mount which the Prophet basically summarize the Hadith, a person goes out to the desert,

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

and the person is on his camel is all his provisions, his water, whatever it might be, and then the camel You know, he lies down to fall asleep when he wakes up, the camel is gone, and his provisions are gone and he's in the middle of the desert, nothing and time goes by and he realizes while I'm gonna die, he's given up all hope of life. The man has given up hope to such an extent that he is even dug his own grave that he's going to die in it. And then all of a sudden as he has given up all hope he's

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

Is this camel this animal coming forward and he grabs the reins of it grabs the thing you know, imagine the man comes and he grabs the animal. And he's so happy. I mean, he is basically his life has been returned and he says, Oh Allah, you are my slave and I am your Lord. What does he mean you are my slave and I am who he means to say, I am your slave and you on my Lord, but out of his delirium is so delirious because of his his happiness, that he makes a mistake. And so he's confused of the intensity of his joy. The prophets of Salaam says at the beginning of the Hadith, Allah has more joy than this man, when we raise our hands and say, yeah, Allah, I looked at that thing which

00:10:36--> 00:11:18

is haram, I sit this haraam thing I made this mistake. Now I come to you yeah, Allah forgive me for sending against you and sending it against myself. Allah is so happy more than that. That meant a lot. We know also that of the awards lobby, no tells his people that if you make is too far, you've come up with the sun, you should be punished actually. But if you ask Allah don't punish me, forgive me. Not only will ALLAH forgive you, but allow, allow the rain to come down, meaning Allah Baraka in our, our money, our risk our children, and Allah will cause us to be healthy. This disease might go away Bismillah through Toba, and so far, through Toba is still far after we've taken the precautions

00:11:18--> 00:11:58

Toba is so beautiful and so loved by Allah, that he not only forgives the sun, but he also wants to reward us in the dunya and the ophira Subhana. Allah, how do we make Toba? What is the way we do it? How do we get to do this thing, no special formula, it is simply a sincere you are it is for you to turn to Allah alone. And it is that you confess your sin to Allah alone your online business and you regret you genuinely regret that son, you know, Allah, some, some people have said, that sin that I gave up, I still enjoy it, you know, I still want to go towards it. And this is human nature. Sometimes we are so engrossed in certain it is become second nature, it's hard to leave, that's

00:11:58--> 00:12:38

fine, we turn to Allah, Allah, I love this thing so much, and I long for this, this haram thing, but I'm coming to you for your help and your mercy, forgive me, and I will make sincerest efforts here alone not to go back to itself with your assistance. And even if the person goes back to it, you know, he is overpowered by his weakness and he comes back and he makes nobody stiffer than almost pantalla. We believe he exists and he forgives, and back and forth. He goes, there was a scholar that mentioned it might be that Allah created you with this weakness, a certain weakness, a certain temptation, each of us are weak in a certain regard. And is that son that gets you to Jenna, what do

00:12:38--> 00:13:13

you mean that son gets religion, because he is constantly in this internal battle day and night is fighting, he commits the sun and he feels regret. And that makes him go to the masala and make it stiffer and tober. And then he spends a few days struggling against that temptation. Then he makes a mistake again and again he repeats the cycle. But it was because of that son that made him go to the masala every day every night back and forth 50 6070 years and he fought with himself. This might be the thing that actually is the thing that turned into Allah subhanaw taala we pray that Allah subhanaw taala forgives us for all options that will make us default and Toba for all our sins. So

00:13:13--> 00:13:53

that is the first the easiest and the best way to get your sins removed to get my son's removed is to continuously make Easter far, and to make sincere Toba for those big sins that we have done those things which are in our minds and we continuously make Toba we never know when Allah has accepted, it might not be the first time but we do so. We are other ways in which our sins are forgiven. We know that number two besides is different over the way to get forgiveness from Allah is to do as many good deeds as possible. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, you know, there was a lecture we did the divine scoreboard, the way in which Allah keeps score. So on the one side, there are negative marks

00:13:53--> 00:14:31

against us, which is of course sin, and then we get positive marks for good deeds. Allah subhanaw taala has placed us in such a way that when we do make it stiffer, he doesn't only remove the sun, but he gives us a wood and similarly when we do a good deed, Allah doesn't only reward us for that he also removes a son. So it is a double kind of reward, the promises of MCs fear Allah wherever you are, have consciousness and law at all times and follow up a bad deed with a good deed and it will blot it out it will completely remove it and the promises and deal with people that with good manner. So the point of the Hadith here is the Prophet is saying whenever you've committed a sin and

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

that moment of weakness, that moment of lack of judgment, you commit the sin and when when you since is returned to you realize Yeah, Allah What did I do? Immediately perform some kind of evader whatever it is, make an EFT to some charity go and perform as open the coronary site. ask Allah to forgive you. The minute committed a sin and you follow it up with a good deed immediately. Allah subhanho wa Taala blots out that that's another beautiful Hadith the Prophet Abubakar Allah and is really there's not many Hadith Abu Bakar himself.

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

On the one hand he narrated, he said, The Prophet told him that who ever committed a sin and then afterwards he went, and he performed a beautiful we do a complete widow and made to Raka as an repentance, then that sin is expunged completely smile a lot. So I was fine with Allah allow us to only commit a sin, we return and we we compensated through a good deal. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, in Al Hassan Allah you hipness, say other the good deeds, remove the evil deeds, that good deeds, completely wipe out the bad deeds. And Allah has allowed that every time we commit, you know, every time we do good deeds, for example, the salaat Ramadan O'Meara Hodge Juma attached to it

00:15:43--> 00:16:21

is this, you know, this vaccine, if you will, in the time that we're living in is this vaccine that purifies our soul of any of its germs and viruses, that when you perform that Salah, you're not only getting a reward, you're also cleansing yourself of that sin, and almost 100 that has made this as we, you know, as you take regular intervals of, of ibadah, those regular intervals, or purifications, of of our, from our sins. And of course, the greater the good deed, the more powerful is that purification. So we know for example, a man we believe the man who goes and he stands that lady without you know, go stands on the plains of alpha in hajj, when he leaves arafa when we

00:16:21--> 00:17:04

believe that all of his sons a lifetime of sin is forgiven, there are other great great acts of worship that also removes all your sins, you don't only have to go to alpha, there's other ways, one of them in fact, one of the greatest ways of getting every single sun wave at 60 7080 years of sun completely wiped out is that of the month of Ramadan, this these 30 days can compensate. You know, I 50 4060 year life often wiped out the professor's allowances or ever forced sincerely or stand sincerely, who stands in the light of legal color sincerely and hopeful as a reward, all of his sins could be forgiven or be in the law. So a huge opportunity coming up for us Mullah Grant has to

00:17:04--> 00:17:47

achieve the reach Ramadan and achieve its full full benefits. So the first one who said to get sins removed is through is too far and tober. The second one is to do a lot of good deeds and the more good deeds you do, they wipe out those sins. Number three, Allah has made it such as maybe, maybe you did not do the job and that is the fault you come up to the sun. But you neglected asked Allah for forgiveness. And you didn't do too many good deeds in terms of Ybarra to Allah. But it might be that hamdulillah Allah blessed you with having good people in your life, and through the Association of those good people. They do are for you, assist you that you are assist you. So we know that if I

00:17:47--> 00:18:27

may do I, Allah forgive my brother forgive my sister, even though he's not making the offer himself, Allah subhanaw taala, you know, accepts the two out of others looking out for each other. And that is why it's Viola. Sometimes when we see you know, today, one of the big problems of the oma is we are very quick to point out the faults of each other. And one way of really assessing Am I pointing these faults out? Am I giving advice in inverted commas here is really for the benefit of the brother or the sister was simply to the superiority complex to make this person feel bad. One of the V good ways of understanding is if you go off to advising the brother, what you're doing here is

00:18:27--> 00:19:06

haram is if you go afterwards when he's not seeing you and you make to offer me see Allah, my brother I've spoken to him is committing the sin, forgive him Have mercy on him. If you're not making to offer that person in really when you're advising them, it is more maybe as a way of of humiliating that person or feeling superior to them. So watch our intentions in sha Allah has a beautiful Hadith of the prophets of Salaam says whenever a Muslim dies, and 40 people who came in, stand up this person's channel. And these are people that did not come achieve with Allah meaning these are believers. And then Allah will accept the intersections on behalf of this man, then the

00:19:06--> 00:19:44

meet through the Salah of these 40 people, Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive this man now attached to the Subhan Allah one of the I was speaking to a friend and you know, we're saying that, you know, dying of this disease is would be very, very bad. But I think what's even worse is not being able to have a proper janazah we know the bigger your genetics and the more more people at your janazah is a good indication of a good departure towards Allah we pray that they are allowing when you take us on that day, may our Genesis be big and let the quality of people at the janazah be wonderful people. In this time we know that the massages are closed and this Jana is of small, very

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

few people attend. So we should make that extra effort to make dua for all the people that have died that we call the team legionnaires as we all live mercy on them that have died during this period, that they are unable to have the full benefit of the janazah some people the old lives

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

have been in the emergency five times a day they are in the masjid, and so sad that they they pass away and they don't have the privilege of having a janessa in the masjid, of course, there's not a blemish against them. This is not a was never unfair to somebody, but this is the reality we live in, and He will give His full view as it would be, we know of Hadeeth when people are not the to perform the hustle on a person or to perform the janazah on someone, event, Allah will send angels the woman janessa and to hustle the such people, some Allah Subhana Allah, you know, have mercy on all of those who passed away. And when we die, Allah maybe be good people that make dua for us

00:20:36--> 00:21:13

continuously. And you know, and as we say, the DA continues even after the janazah if you have a relative that has passed away, they will long they are longing so much for the son, the daughter, the grandson, or granddaughter to make dua for them, so that they can feel whatever goodness they have in the cupboard, it will be elevated, they'll have more in wood, and if they go in through hardship, through punishment, the punishment is alleviated through our doors, so the people or the graves can ever assist us you can never go to the carpet and ask the one guru assist me he cannot assist you but we can assist the Imam through making dua for them. Yeah, Allah have mercy on them.

00:21:13--> 00:21:57

So we continuously we remember the deceased in our to us, and we hope that when we die, those of us will remember us in a way to us. So number three is to make dua for them. Then number four, is we can do good deeds, we all know, besides to us, we can do good deeds for them. So we know if if you have a parent that was unable to perform hajj, or you want to give a sadaqa charity on behalf of someone that has passed away, Allah has allowed the certain amazing thing that even after you die, that your account can continue accruing in good deeds, by people doing it on your behalf, you can you know, your yield on voice of the tape paper for the sign is up. And you asked who signed this

00:21:57--> 00:22:35

hour who is this guy, Sally, it is etha a fella for the basically the transfer of good the reward if I mean to transfer our law, I'm transferring the good deeds on behalf of my father, whatever it might be. And so Allah has allowed us to do good deeds for the dead people. So again, you might not have given a lot of charity. But you Alhamdulillah one of the things that you've done is you have very good friends are very good. You're a good father, and people love you so much. And even after you die, someone makes a quarterback on your behalf someone gives both a mosque on your behalf. But of course you don't want to wait for that. You don't want to depend on that. But Allah has allowed

00:22:35--> 00:23:12

this to happen. It's a beautiful Hadith a man Ayesha says a man comes to the Navy. So Solomon says My mother has died all of a sudden threes. Stewart you know, it's so sad. My mom has died and did not have a chance to bequeath anything, she didn't leave anything behind in terms of charity. But if she were able to do so I think that she she would have given some because the process was telling them that she did not rather she didn't have money, but she didn't put it in her wallet. So when you die 1/3 of your walking goes for charity. So one side note here, it is very easily, you know, instructed by the abusers on them, that we should always have a wall in place in case of emergency.

00:23:13--> 00:23:50

And in times like this last summer, how long I will not cause it to be so but it is good for us now to think about having that. Well. One of the things that are important in that world is to leave some charity behind up to 1/3 not more than 1/3. And of course to make our you know your situation between the hero. So this man says his mom died and she didn't leave anything behind. But if she knew she would have given some sort of so can I he asked would if I were to give sadaqa would she be able to get the reward if I do it on her behalf? And the prophets of Allah said yes, you can do so if you give charity on her behalf she will get it. Another Hadith says the man asked what kind of

00:23:50--> 00:24:27

charity Can I give on her behalf and the prophets allowances basically have the best things you can do is to provide people with water and so he purchased a well or he had a wild dog and he made that work for people and his mother. We have nilla received the reward of that so we can do good deeds on behalf of the deceased with the near for them. So you may be today you are giving you finding someone hungry. In this virus you find the massage the massage you die in need of donations, people are losing the jobs and you want to assist them you know you give that 100 grand you give that loaf of bread you will get the reward but you ceramic the near that my mother father, they get three wood

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

in sha Allah and they will get the reward without you being diminished in any way. Allah subhanaw taala rewards without any limit even when this is really important. Number five, one of the ways in which our sons are diminished is through calamities, through calamities on the earth. So in one way, we always mentioned that whatever befalls us on the earth of good or bad, if it brings us closer to Allah, then it is a mercy in the end that even this one Allah someone we love

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

Someone that is very close to us dies or we become sick or we lose our job. And this thing brings us closer to Allah or we are patient in it, then this thing is a purification for us. We have many sons fall in love. And the worst thing to happen, the worst outcome of our sons is we carry all of it to here. And we stand before a lot and on the day of kiama we even get punished for those sins in Jana. Jana, Mr. We cannot be the punishment of Jana. In some ways we can be the punishment in the dunya but not the punishment of the hero. So one of the ways a lot of Allah tala of His mercy, his he settles our account in the dunya. So when we meet him, we meet him fresh and clean. One of the

00:25:44--> 00:26:22

reasons why our people, you know, we get old and we become frail and become weak, you know, people and especially in this time, we know, the older you are, the more susceptible you are to this disease. And people are seeing old mothers and fathers they're, they're scared, I'm going to get sick of this disease gonna take me and they remember just yesterday I was strong and healthy and how quickly Allah subhanaw taala has reduced me to be so vulnerable. This is not easy. It's very difficult. But remember, this is a purification. Allah is as the Heidi one had he says Allah sweetens you the believer, before you die, that when you die, you die in that beautiful state. So

00:26:23--> 00:27:10

the Prophet Salam tells us, no tiredness, no form of exhaustion, no form of emotional worry, and grief or distress. No harm at all before the believer in this whole, not even as small or minute as pricking your foot with a phone being picked by a phone, except that Allah subhanaw taala will remove or remove sins. So during this calamity, all of us are suffering. We are locked in our homes, some of us you know we are seed Some of us have lost financially love lost our jobs. Some of us are sick, some of us have had a lot of including loved ones or even our own life. These calamities are so mighty, we pray that Allah subhanaw taala uses this to purify as completely that as this calamity

00:27:10--> 00:27:28

befalls this dunya when this calamity blows over Bismillah very quickly, what is left is us pure and clean of all our sins the evening. Then, number six another form of forgiveness is that of the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of gamma. We know that

00:27:29--> 00:28:05

Hadith which we all are very familiar with, we know that the prophets of Salaam informed us that even in a view of Allah was given a special gift meaning I do our which Allah had given him and said, whatever you want, you will get. And so every single Navy use that you are in the dunya they use that special gift from Allah, they opened it in the US in the dunya that ivysaur salam said I did not use my two I yet rather I kept it with me. And I'm going to use it on kiama I mean it's Palawan look at the foresight of the day which is the most difficult day he says that day that is the day I'm going to use this to and that they might do are is going to be for my own must

00:28:05--> 00:28:32

specifically Almighty it all of these along Hadeeth about the indecision In fact, every single person, even the worst of the worst, will benefit from that indecision are going to be so solemn, but in particular, he's the hour before Almighty Almighty migration my nation mirabito salaam says my intercession will be for those amongst my oma who have committed major sins. So the most difficult of people on the deaf gamma of this oma those of us, not law protect us.

00:28:33--> 00:29:13

Those who carry a major sin to Allah on the day of karma, they've committed a big one, a big one meaning murder, Xena, some things we might even that you know hammer rebar, we take this very lightly revise all of the biggest of the medicines is to have rebar pay Riba only Riba so any person who comes to along with FGM, or with a major sin. Now, this is a big muscular, there's a big problem. Because Allah says in the Quran that if you come to Allah with only minor essence, then those will be forgiven on kiama and you will avoid janam. So anyone who comes to Allah is a believer with only minor sins when he will be guaranteed Jana without Jangan. But a person with a major sin

00:29:13--> 00:29:53

on his name, he is liable for jahannam and that is where the intercession the prophets of Allah will come in. And the evening Allah if Allah accepts when a person's major sins will be forgiven. And if Allah does not accept that indecision on his behalf of this person in this person will be liable for jam them. How do we get the decision of Navy SEALs alone? very easily. We know we make the do out of the every other year the oven at the mosque. So we still make the kilometer body Delta we make that to within the lab on kiama. Allah, Akiyama, as we know is like a courtroom. And they we will have witnesses against us. In fact, we will testify against ourselves, but there will be some who will

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

witness on our behalf and intercede of them are the angels, the prophets, Allah sequences in the Quran, how many are

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

We have angels in the heavens, they intercession will not avail anything except after Allah has given leave for them, he will leave with whom he pleases and that he is accepted acceptable to him. So Allah says the angels the melodica they continuously making to offer us as amazing you know think about the angels that come to our homes they see us they in the kindness to us the making the eye Allah, Muhammad is going through difficulty Aisha is going through some hardship, make etc and forgive them forgive them forgive him every time he commits a sin. Allah subhana wa Taala accepts the intercession of the angels. in some regards. He accepts that your good deeds we know that your

00:30:38--> 00:31:19

fasting will complain from an FTM your Quran will cry to all Ahmed FEMA, Allah I kept him busy I kept him out of his sleep, so forgive him, they will be our witnesses in the cover and on the depth gamma. So the more the stronger we want that witness, the more fasting and Quran in particular. We are special people from the people who will intercede on Allah on our behalf. Amongst them is the half of the Quran is a bit of a weak Hadith but with Nila. So the half is we know he will be allowed to according to this weak Hadith that he will intercede on behalf of 10 people and the Shaheed the martyr, he will intercede on behalf of others on the deaf camp. So one of the owners of certain

00:31:19--> 00:32:01

people that they've done such a lot of good deeds in the dunya that not only will they be saving kiama they can actually pull others and save others. It's not just the very special is another Hadith coming about everyone being able to perform indecision. So number eight, we'll get back to the theory. Number eight, wrong stand against you. So remember, anyone who has done anything about your rights were taken in the dunya. And you have been wronged in any way someone said something around to you, someone abused you in some way they harmed you physically, they harmed you financially, they are harmed you emotionally they are harmed your honor. If you know psychologically

00:32:01--> 00:32:41

they've done something wrong to you any thing that was done like this, and it was not reconciled in the dunya then that date must be paid on the day of pm. And we know this very famous and speedy Hadith the Hadith of the of the roofless the banker person were the prophets Allah asked the Sahaba, who is bankrupt and the Sahaba said the bank at one is the one who has his dates are more than his assets. And the prophets we are not talking about this kind of bankruptcy. Rather, he says the bankrupt person is a person on one kiama will have lots of solar, lots of fasting, lots of setup, but he will find himself bankrupt on that day How so? Because he had also he accumulated a lot of

00:32:41--> 00:33:22

good deeds. But on the other side, he had committed a lot of harm to others, he spoke better this one he, you know, sent a message and that harmed someone else. He was debating and nicely with this one. He was backbiting that one, he was thinking the hack of someone else, you know, you know, abuse this person. And so, and while a lot today, when we abuse someone we know the past, you abuse one person in to his face or whatever, and that was it. Now you abuse someone online, and 1000s millions of people hate it. And that insult is all against use of Allah. May Allah protect us, you know, 1000s millions of people see a 3d cheat it and those are all upon whom Allah, may Allah have mercy

00:33:22--> 00:34:02

on us, those millions and millions of counts against you. And so all the good deeds are taken from you until the person is left with no good deeds, but he still has a queue of people that he harmed what now now he takes the son of john lamb. So this good person that did a lot of good deeds, because he harm people, he ends up in janam through through harming people on the day of the dunya. So there are some of us, some of you, who are victims, you in your heart, you know, that someone stole something from your heart, your financial, whatever it might be, or the someone that that really hard hurt you, your emotions Subhan Allah Allah protect us mother in law's daughter in laws,

00:34:02--> 00:34:39

you'll find that this guide is the anthem of FEMA said those things are right in the dunya. Because if you have those claims against one another and they have karma, it's not a good thing. And even the victim even if you are the victim, you have all the claims against this one and that one, it is better for you to let it go in the dunya once you say Allah, even without that person knowing what a beautiful thing, you go to your Allah, this person or that person, they harm me they hurt me. I still feel the pain in rehab. But I asked you your ALLAH forgive them for what they did to me. This is a you know, high level taqwa Eman. Allah speaks about these kinds of people in the Quran, that

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

they are seen as an alumnus that they make a fool they they pardon the people and in return they get the pardon of Allah. Allah says in the Quran, do you not want Allah to have mercy on you, so you forgive and you pardoned others? That's all good. But today is about pardoning and forgiving. We want the forgiveness of Allah. And so then let go

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

Have those graduates, perhaps, somehow no lump in this moment of jwan in this holiest of days, when we make do I ALLAH forgive each of us for our sins, make the offer your worst enemy as well make to our that you know somebody is not a Muslim made to Allah guides him to Islam and make dua that Allah Subhana Allah forgives the worst of sins and that Allah makes us better. This is what we want. We don't want to see any person going to join them. The prophets of Allah the you know, gave the lives preventing even people like fear Okay, I'm going to Jan I'm trying the best to take Abuja hell out of Jana year, we are very quick to send our own blood brother to Jana, our best friend that we will

00:35:40--> 00:35:57

for 20 years, he did one thing wrong, you will go through gentlemen forever, and I'll be happy now. So make make, you know, pardon people. And if you and if you will, a transgressor, then make sure you fix these things. You make these fix these things before the day of karma, then on the day of karma,

00:35:58--> 00:36:19

if all else number nine, if you have now your son, so though by that you didn't come out you didn't have you didn't ask Allah to forgive you and repent for your sins. You didn't do good deeds. People didn't ask Allah to forgive you. People didn't do good deeds on your behalf. You had a very comfortable life. And so there were no calamities to purify you, you didn't get the indecision of the FPM.

00:36:20--> 00:36:59

If there were no claims that you could even have set off on the deck Yama, so what now now, you are liable for those sins. And it could be as a mercy from Allah, that He gives a minor punishment rather than a big one. But he is the son now needs to be punished. And so the punishment might be smaller. So of the things some of the the sinners, they are quoting the dunya, the man who murdered the man who committed Zina, so they are punished in the dunya. The Sharia says that this person must be punished physically in the dunya, this punishment will be a will be a kind of expiation for the sons. Perhaps it would be that in the copper,

00:37:00--> 00:37:17

that people get difficulty in the copper, it might be that that experience those sons expunges of the sons before getting to jahannam. So anything that removes that sense, even a punishment before kiama we see it is a form of it is a form of mercy.

00:37:19--> 00:37:57

The prophet SAW the the prophets of Salaam we know there was a lady will come with Xena, and she was stoned to death long holiday basically and she was stoned to death and the professor's alum performing janessa Salah on her and the Sahaba said how you performed and Angela and a lady which we just don't do it. And he said to the silver Harbor, that she received such a repentance from Allah, but it could really forgive 70 people, not just half, but 70 people could share in that level of forgiveness. Yes, she went through the punishment, but this punishment was severe, and therefore it purified her completely. So if anyone goes through a difficulty in the dunya and is even in the

00:37:57--> 00:38:03

cover, it might be a cleansing for the for the orchestra. Then lastly, of course,

00:38:04--> 00:38:46

he is the punishment of Gangnam Style. So the root of sin, the as we sit in the dunya you commit the sin, there are many, many ways of getting free of that sin. If those sins are not sorted out in the dunya when you are liable in the cover or on the deaf camp that some might be punished. And then some wall Mandala protectors the believer, we know that all believers who did not come achieve with Allah, they will enter Jannah some will enter immediately. Others will enter via Jana. So they all Muslims, believers, but because of the quantity or the severity of the sins, and this is only for all not to judge, really you know people say you don't have the right to judge me only can only

00:38:46--> 00:39:29

unlucky judge me that is still 100% true. Only Allah can knows that the way the sin was done, what was in the heart, this the severity of it as an alarm alone won't be able to assign a punishment and so then people will be going to Jana. Now this this headache is a beautiful idea in one of my favorite Hadees the peseta who that is reported. It's mentioned in Sahih Muslim, that he says that he says that the prophets are seldom seen by the one in whose hand is my soul that I be seen by Allah none of you can be more insistent in arson Allah to restore his right so the prophecy the the people that will be the most argumentative with a lot of young people will argue with Allah for his

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

rights against his opponent, they will be no one that will argue with Allah more severely than the believer on the Day of Resurrection on behalf of his brother who was in the fire Subhan Allah. So the Prophet is saying the person the people will argue with Allah the Most is not for themselves, but they will argue on behalf of the fellow Muslim brother who's in the fire. They will say yeah, Allah, those people they in Jannah they used to fast with us and they used to pray with us and they perform Hajj with us, that Buddha the Allah I was with him

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

Have a I don't know what since he did that in between basically between email, but I am going to account and vouch for him, you know, on the, for his good deeds. Now this is an amazing, amazing Hadith. Why? Because we know in Surah Abba, the prophets of Allah says on that day the mother will run away from her children, the husband will run away from his wife, no one everyone will say NFC NFC, but some people you know, after they have been saved from janam, they will basically you know, before they get to general they'll make a U turn. And they'll say here Allah, I want to come back and I want to intercede on behalf of this man Subhana Allah, I mean, it will often these people

00:40:36--> 00:41:11

complain to Allah on behalf of these fellow Muslims in Ghana, it will be said to them now to the angels basically bring out those whom you recognize, rather Allah will say to these people, so take out from gentlemen those whom you recognize, and the fire will be opening for them. So you go look who in jahannam is really you will recognize that the good deeds, take them out, so they will bring them out. And Allah will say to the angels that have interceded and the prophets of interceded so Allah will Lindsey for the angels because even though he saw complain these people they they're in Jana Mia Allah, but they did good deeds, Allah will say to them, now you also take out those people

00:41:11--> 00:41:57

that you are vouching for, until there is none left now in Jannah, except for Allah Himself to show mercy meaning Allah will say that everyone that has mercy has shown mercy. What is left is for Allah subhanaw taala himself to show to show mercy. And as the Hadith mentioned, in a way which we make no associations of Allah, you will grasp a portion of janam or the fire and he will bring out people in me that had not even atoms, weight of good deeds, but they will believe us they believe in Allah, and they did not commit a shield with Allah. And so if all else fails, if our good deeds fails, our tober fails. Remember the thing that we have the most hope in is the hope of Allah's mercy. The most

00:41:57--> 00:42:39

important thing that gives us hope in the worst of times is that in who Allah is, the first step is to know who he is. And the very first thing when we open the Quran, who is Allah? Who is Allah, Allah is not the one who is here to punish and to cause harm. You open the Quran the first thing is Bismillah In the name of Allah Ar Rahman AR Rahim v. infinitely Merciful, the one who is most most merciful, who says what Rama T was the Aquila Shay that my mercy touches and embraces it develops every single thing every living, animate inanimate shaytaan himself. Everything is invalid come wrapped up in Allah's mercy of the names of Allah Rahim we know it comes from the raw which is the

00:42:39--> 00:43:19

womb. This is the name of Allah Rahim comes from the womb. Why? Because the womb is the safest, most loving place that envelops the baby. Allah says this is my name Rahim. This is how I envelop the creation with my mercy and there are many names of Allah Allah for Allah. The one who forgives Allah foo, the one who removes all sins at the word, the one who returns to you when you committed sin, Allah thief, the most gentle and overdue the most loving, I'll hurry him the most forbidding the Muslims you do against him. He pardons and he overlooks. Allah says calavera buku Malinovski Rama, Allah says, I have made compulsory on me, I have made it hard on me that I will show mercy to

00:43:19--> 00:44:05

migration. And now who ever commits a sin be Johanna with you know ignorantly not I you know fully fully understanding his sin. And then he turns for metabo mean buddy, and then he turns to align repentance and he makes right you himself that Allah will know before him that Allah is oft forgiving, Most Merciful. Allah says that we seldom in the Quran, never be a baddie, say to my ebeid my servants, and knee anila for Rahim that I am most surely of forgiving, the most, the Most Merciful. And in the Hadith, the prophet sentences that Allah himself says, My mercy will always be bigger than my punishment. Allah will always forgive more than he, he punishes, that all the mercy

00:44:05--> 00:44:19

we know this, how do you feel all the mercy and all the kindness in every period in every animal, every goodness of every creature on this earth that we put together? It is only 1% of the 99% which is with Allah subhana wa Taala

00:44:20--> 00:44:59

that Allah says about himself or the prophecies about himself that Allah is generous when you make do he gives any shy, he is shy that you raise your hands and you say, you ask Allah that He leaves that hand in the hand that Allah is shy to return that hands empty handed, no one raises his hands and he says yeah, Allah forgive me, except that Allah will give him something either except that son forgives that sin or gives him something better. Allah, we know of a hadith. This beautiful Hadith with a mother, you know, was worried that her child had died in a fire. And then she was panicking and hysterical and she believed the child had burned to death and then they she saw her child

00:45:00--> 00:45:40

alive and well. And so she grabs the child and she hugs him and kisses him. And the Prophet Solomon says, Can you imagine this lady ever, ever throwing this child in a fire? They said, No, what mother can ever do that? No mother can do that. And so the process is, Allah is more merciful to his slaves than this woman is to her child, Allah is more loving to his creation. In this mother, Allah is more reluctant to put anyone in Jannah when this lady Allah will use every method not to allow us to interrupt into Jana. So we should have faith we should have faith in that we enjoy for this Hadith, which is, I've said so often and so frequently, the Hadith which gives us so much hope that we know

00:45:40--> 00:46:17

the Prophet says, a loss is himself or son of Adam, as long as you call upon me and put your hope in me, I have forgiven you. It's a guarantee I forgiven you and I, for what you have done and I don't mind doing the word Allah uses, I don't mind I don't even worry and what you have done, so long as you ask me forgiveness, I forgive it. When he says, oh, son of Adam, if your sins were to reach the sky, and then you would ask me forgiveness, you accumulated so much. And then you ask me forgiveness, while you're still alive, I will forgive you or son of Adam, even if on the day of karma, you come to Allah with sons equal to filling this entire world, this massive planet, filled

00:46:17--> 00:46:55

with sons, unimaginable amount of sons, but you also did not come achieve with Allah you worshipped him alone. And Allah will come to you with a world filled with with mercy and forgiveness in these difficult times. In these times of confusion in his times, we feel he said, the thing that gives us most hope is that this is Allah subhanaw taala we're talking about and Allah's mercy is close at hand. All we need to do is raise our hands and we ask the ones what could you Maya, Allah have mercy on us. Forgive us, make easy for us artists, our trials when we come through this bitter people forgive all our sins, and may we meet you on the day of karma, free of any sense of Neela we put our

00:46:55--> 00:47:01

faith and trust and hopes in your mercy forgive us here Allah. Oh, Most Merciful almost kind of settlements a number

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

of your Salaam, serene

00:47:04--> 00:47:04

me
