Donna rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali was iVh mine, my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam, respected listeners on the radio voice of the cape Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah operation to Allah subhana wa tada initiative Allah, Allah Allah Allah will be witness and testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah to bless us in this walk of Juma to forgive us our sins, the mistakes that we've done, may Allah grant the week to come be a week full of Baraka and blessing. And we send our greetings and love and sanitation so we love it,

00:00:37--> 00:00:55

maybe Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, to his pious and pure family, and to all those who follow his student until the end of time, the last 400 Allah blessed us to be upon the student of nebby Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. I mean, what hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah as I mentioned, we live on the radio. So be yourself and hamdulillah and

00:00:56--> 00:01:35

last week for the past couple of weeks, we've been talking about a series on sins and we see today inshallah, we will talk about the psychology of sin. How do I get rid of sin? Why am I addicted to sin? That was the plan. But Alhamdulillah Oh, you know, this week, I've received a number of questions, which I think is, we need to address something before that even people have sent me messages in the states in the speed with Allah wise, Allah putting me through this hardship. People have sent me messages very honest, and Frank messages, no judgement. Why should I even be a Muslim? Why should I give up my lifestyle for a religion that I'm really not connected to? I might have been

00:01:35--> 00:01:40

born a Muslim, why have a Muslim name, but in reality, I feel no connection with this religion.

00:01:42--> 00:02:11

People might ask how do I transform my life? You and I might ask, How do I give up the sun? And the answer is we do this. And we feel a connection and we live this life. Because we are connected to Allah subhana wa tada we have a relationship with him. When we look at where we are in this dunya we find ourselves the big question is why have I been put here? What's the purpose of my life, the purpose of being here? From Islamic perspective, we know Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us,

00:02:14--> 00:02:54

that we have not been created except to worship Allah, to have a connection with Allah to live a life in servitude to Allah. But before we can even do that we ask who is Allah? Who is Allah? What should I think about when I think about Allah? When I turned towards this religion? What am I turning towards when I give up my life, the enjoyment and the pleasures for the sake of Allah? Who is this Allah that I'm doing it for? Because this religion is not just coming to the masjid. It's not just about making Salah five times a day, it is a Deen, it's a way of life. Every decision that you and I make is for the sake of Allah. Every decision we make with who we were going to get

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

married to what job we should take how we should earn our money, it goes back to bringing the closer to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:03:02--> 00:03:41

So we need to ask, first and foremost, who is this Allah? And what should we think about when we think of Allah, Allah requires us to live our life going towards him, closer to Him, to the point as if though we can see him but of course, we cannot see a lot in this dunya. So let's ask this question and today's Juma and it's something that every one of us we should discuss with our kids. We should think about even though we're born Muslims, were born knowing the name of Allah, but who is he really? So we begin, we open the Quran, right at the beginning verse number one Bismillahirrahmanirrahim, In the name of Allah, and the first attribute the first evidence Allah

00:03:41--> 00:04:18

gives about himself. He says, I'm a Rahman and Rahim you read Surah Fatiha Alhamdulillah Praise be to Allah Lord, creator of the whole universe. So all your Allahu is this load. He says R Rahman r Rahim, the very first attribute and quality that Allah has given himself. The first thing he wants you to think about when you think of him is Rahman and Rahim so what is a man? And what is Rahim? Both of course comes from Rama, mercy, some translations you will hear they will say the most magnificent, the most kind, the Most Gracious. What does this mean it really

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

Rahman and Rahim comes from this quality of mercy. And the difference between the two It's beautiful. Man is the one who is vast, in his essence is merciful. Whatever he does, His mercy, that by his very nature, by his very essence, He is merciful, and that everybody and every creation even he believes even sinner has a share of this mercy. But Allah in His very nature, he's merciful. He's a man. When asked for him, sort of man one way of doing one way of explaining his his passive state, Allah in his natural the you know, his default is he's Merciful.

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

When he acts he acts with Rama Rahim Rahim is active. When Allah comes towards his creation, he comes towards them with mercy. Allah in a hadith mentions the MCs that Allah says this name Rahim. I've taken this name Rahim from the Rahim Brahim is the uterus of the mother, the womb of the mother. I have derived My name from the uterus. Why the uterus? Because the uterus, the womb of the mother protects that child from all corners, envelops the child with love and mercy. And so to when Allah approaches his creation, when Allah interacts with us, from all directions, he interacts with mercy, with kindness, with gentleness, with love. This is what Allah is the first thing he wants you

00:05:48--> 00:05:57

to know. He's merciful. He's kind, he's good. He loves you. This is what Allah is. Allah says, what a hermit he was he at.

00:05:58--> 00:06:22

That My Mercy touches encompasses envelops everything, every sinner, every person, every animal, even he believes he has a guaranteed shade of Allah's mercy. We go through the space, sometimes we go through hardship, but never ever feel cut off from the mercy of Allah, because Allah has promised that every single one of his creation would have mercy.

00:06:23--> 00:06:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala of his names. So yes, Rahmani Raheem, these are the first of his names of the other names that we find and to get to know who he is. He is a food and as far

00:06:35--> 00:07:01

as we know as being forgiving, it's not really forgiveness. mouthfeel comes from metaphora, which is a shield. So like saying, I am the one that shields you, protects you covers you from hardship from difficulty and from sin. When you commit sin, I am the one that conceals it. And when you should be punished I'm going to be the one that blocks that punishment. And Allah joins these two names lafoon Rahim many times in the Quran.

00:07:02--> 00:07:47

Beautifully the Allah mentions, when you find the words of Allah, fool, or Rahim, the one who protects and Rahim The one who acts with mercy. Usually it's for the sinner. Allah will say you commit sin but if you come back, you would find me for fooling Rahim meaning for the one who sins, I will come to you as a protector, a concealer, and one who is merciful, of his name is Abu, the one who expunges and wipes out everything of sin. He extinguishes completely. His forgiveness is beyond us and beyond my son. He's at the web who is to return. But no matter how far you've lived a lot, how far of course you and I have gone. We've lived 6070 years, maybe not one solid, not one sujood

00:07:47--> 00:08:05

now you want to come back to Allah. Allah says, I'm at the web, I will always come back to you. When you come back to me. I come back to you no questions asked. I am ready to come back to you. He's a Latif the soft and gentle that whenever he does something, it's with kindness and subtlety is

00:08:06--> 00:08:48

deeply loving for his creation, more loving than I paid for a child he's Allah dude is an haleem. The forbidding forbearance means you sinned against him, you harm him, or in terms of you disrespecting you sin and you break his laws, but he's forbidding he lets go. He doesn't hold grudges. He's forbidding and has been the most forbidding. This is who you are, is, this is what you think about when you make dua. When you're asking you in need. When you feel distant. Think of these names. Allah says to you and me Look at this man Allah. We ask for you and me there are things which are compulsory, we have to do we haven't we can't do for Allah we say who can who can compel Allah,

00:08:48--> 00:08:57

Who gives a law, the restrictions? Allah says cutterbar, Abu Kumara and FC Rama that I have,

00:08:58--> 00:09:44

that I have written, made compulsory on myself Rama Allah says catabolite fc Rama Allah made fuddled on himself, I will always be merciful, even to the worst of the worst, even to the police. I will be merciful and Allah contingencies and minimum income Su and gehalten metabo mean by de la for unknowable Rahim so that if any of you does anything out of ignorance mistake you've made a mistake and you come back to Allah in repentance. Allah says you will find me buffoon, Rahim I will cover your sin, protect your sin, forgive yourself and be merciful on you. Allah says I have made this fuddled on myself compulsory on me, Allah Subhana Allah says for the purposes of lamb, not be a

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

baddie, any unlawful Rahim say to my creation, say to my slaves that I am most surely the Forgiving, continuously forgiving and the Most Merciful in my actions. We are about your letting water unfussy him

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

llactapata Muhammad Allah, Allah says to each and every one of us

00:10:05--> 00:10:55

say to the sending the center of my servants say to those of my servants that have committed sin. Allah didn't say if it's a small sin a minus and any sin Olsson, if you committed Zina if you have lived a life that you did not have a lot as in your relationship, if you had forgotten Allah, Allah say, say to this person, the drug addict, la takumin Rahmatullah don't ever lose hope in my mercy, that I forgive all sins in the life of me. I forgive every single sin in the hula hula Rahim because surely he is a fool. And Rahim Allah tells you, O ne Yamato, muslimeen and those who are listening, no matter what your situation is, know that your sin is not bigger than Allah, that your distance

00:10:55--> 00:11:39

from Allah is not too far from Allah, that you are not so far away that you cannot return to Him, that Allah subhanho wa Taala His mercy and Rama encompasses you, even when you turn away from him. And if you come back to him, then he will just give you more of that mercy. Allah Subhana Allah is mentioned in the Hadith that he said to Salaam. When he created the creation, he decreed that my mercy will always be bigger than my punishment, when my anger always I will be more merciful. When I will be angry, too by my creation. The Prophet explains this mercy Now again, allows you to understand who he is, Allah subhanaw taala tells them, they know decencies with Allah created mercy,

00:11:40--> 00:12:29

all of Rama, all of it, he divided into 100 pieces and represents and he took 1% of His mercy, and he gave it to his creation, so that every act of kindness, mercy goodness comes from that you that mercy you feel for your child is from Allah's mercy, that even the animal you'd find the mother animal will not trample on her baby, it comes from that 1% and then he said, I kept 99 for myself, all the mercy in creation is just part of that 1% but he has 99 with himself. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala is, Allah says to the souls of them, so when they ask you about me, when my servants see who is Allah, is Allah for any corrib I am near to them already. I'm not going to come

00:12:29--> 00:12:55

near to them. I am near to them. I know the situations. I know the hardships, I know who they are, I know the sins that they've done. And still I merciful towards them without the die that Dan and I always answer the one who asks me, you asked me I've made it compulsory, I must answer you. I will respond to you. It's a promise from Allah, the Prophet peace upon him. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, as narrated nabooda would

00:12:56--> 00:13:42

really you Lord is gracious. He's generous. And he shy. Allah is shy. swannanoa you have shyness? Yes, he is shy for the one who raises his hands to Allah, that Allah He turns them empty. It is Allah His greatness, that you will never leave someone's hands turn to him and not put anything inside it. Allah feels a sense of shyness in a manner which we footsies majesty, for the one who makes you are not to respond to them. The Allah Subhana Allah says, I am as my servant thinks of me, if you want to know who I am, I'm as you think of me, I'm with him. When he makes mention of me when you mentioned me, I'm with you. And he makes mention of me inside to himself. When I mentioned him

00:13:42--> 00:14:22

inside myself, when you mentioned Allah's Name, Allah mentions your name inside of himself in a manner which represents the analysis. And if you mentioned me, in a gathering, when you speak of Allah, amongst a group of people, that Allah says, I promise, I mentioned you in a better gathering, I mentioned your name with my angels, someone better. Whenever you speak of Allah, and remember, you make Vicar of him, he remembers you and mentions your name, Allahu Akbar. And if my servant grows near to me a very short distance, he just comes to me with a short distance, that I will come to him with an even bigger distance. And if he comes walking to me, I will run towards him in a manner

00:14:22--> 00:15:00

which reflects Allah's majesty as narrated in Bahati. What a wonderful Hadith This is, your load is more kind and gentle and loving, when you can even imagine and the more you think of him as kind, the more merciful and kind he is to you. This beautiful Hadith the prophets of Salaam as agreed upon by Muslim and hottie once the process along the way in a battle, and a city was invaded. And during the commotion, a lady couldn't find a child, and houses are burning and things are upside down. And so the mother thinks the child has died. So she's screaming, she's frantic, she's hysterical. And then all the

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

Sudden by the rubble she finds this child standing the and so the Prophet Solomon the Sahaba watching this lady, so she runs to her child. Now, I want you as parents to picture this. Imagine you feel like when we met last summer, how long this would be the case, you see an excellent maybe with your child involved. And then you see your child coming out safe and sound, how will you run to the child? So this mother runs this child like this, and she grabs a boy, and she picks him up and hugs him and pulls him as hard as she can kissing that child. So the professor looks at this lady and he says there's a harbor. And he says to the companions, can you imagine that this woman with

00:15:35--> 00:16:17

the amount of love she's feeling now, she could ever, ever throw this child into a fire. It was impossible to harvest it's also love. This is impossible. This lady could never throw this child into the fire. So Allah the prophet SAW some seeds. So to Europe is even more reluctant to cost any of his creation in general. It is more unlikely for Allah to put you in jahannam than your own mother, as Hassan Obasi says, If you truly understood Allah, you will be more comfortable knowing that Allah is judging me on piano than mommy than your own mother. You know if my if my mother if I knew was going to judge me, and it was Jen, now Jana, no matter what I did, mommy's gonna send me to

00:16:17--> 00:16:58

Jenna. Mommy, let me go to Jana. Allah is even kinder and more loving to me than my mother than your mother. That is who you are obvious. There is the one that looks at your deeds night and day, and gives you risk and puts things in your path which is good for you and takes things out of your way which is bad for you, and will judge us on the day of piano. We know of the beautiful Heidi that gives us hope in spite of our sins against Allah, a man will come with 99 Cg lat scrolls of sin, the angels will roll those scrolls out, as far as the eye can see nothing in it of good. He has done nothing good in his life. And it will be weighed. And now this man will see how Allah has what's the

00:16:58--> 00:17:36

point of weighing? What's the point of judging? I have no good deeds, I have 99 scrolls, as far as the eye can see of him. Why should we even go through the trial? So last one says but you have with in your pocket? These are pitaka you've got a small piece of paper with good deeds on it with something good indeed. So the man says Allah, what is the benefit of me even weighing this against the 99? There's no purpose. So Allah says today is the day of justice, everything will be taken into account. So this man opens the paper when he puts it on the scale. And that paper is heavier than the sin. And what's inside that paper is La ilaha illAllah. What's inside that paper? Is that this

00:17:36--> 00:18:19

man? Yes, he committed his Zina. Yes, he killed this, he did everything. But in that paper, he had a relationship with Allah with Dr. Machida, the one thing he says to Allah. Yeah, the one thing you can say yeah, Allah, I did not worship anyone besides you. I did not turn to an idol, or grave with Saint with karma, or whatever in my time of need. I only came to you, your Allah. And because of that Allah will forgive all those sins. Paddy, the province of Salaam is riding with magne Jebel on the camel and the Prophet and the Prophet system IDM Why should I not tell you about something like a secret? And don't spread the secret? This is UCR pseudo law. He says, Do you know what you are

00:18:19--> 00:19:04

right that Allah has upon us the hug of Allah on us is that we should not worship anyone besides Him. And then he says, a lotta love, listen to this. And you know what our heart is on Allah, what Allah owes us something. So it is a learning sudo space. So the problem is that if we do not worship anyone besides Him, then we have to go to Jenna. It is the hack of Allah that He has to put everyone who does not come and check with him into Jenna. This is who Europe is. He does not ask a million billion things of us. He asks us for one thing. Just recognize that I am your Lord. I created you. I feed you I give you life every second when you die, you'll come back to me. So worship me alone. But

00:19:04--> 00:19:45

if you need anything I am here. Come back to me. That's all Allah subhanho wa Taala is really asking of this creation. And even though we will send yes and there will be a judgment, yes. And some people will be punished. Yes, out of His Majesty. Allah Subhana Allah says, the prophecies, anyone who even just acted and believed in La ilaha illAllah and did not commit sin. And Allah found in his heart Eman equal to the width of an atom the smallest level of human even the smell of a man was the just the hint of a man when he will be removed from jahannam. Now brothers and sisters, you are here in this Masjid. By law you have more than an atom's weight of a man in your Allah knows best. You've

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

left your businesses, you've left your jobs. You've come here, those of tuning you could have tuned into any station but you tune into this one to listen to something of benefit to learn of Europe. There is something in your heart with all the sins Yes, but the is an email in your head.

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

In attachment to Allah, but if it is a insha Allah when we die, then it is guaranteed that we will go to Jenna inshallah, by the grace of Allah

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

before me or not, yes with all our sins but we hope that we are generalities will people for the agenda to meet Allah one day, Allah subhana wa tada mentions another beautiful Hadith very least a few my favorite had eaten in this lecture today, Allah Subhana, Allah says,

00:20:25--> 00:21:05

The Prophet says Allah has countless angels who roam around the world, they fly constantly looking out for gatherings of the vicar of law, those who remember Allah, and they invoke Allah. And they sit, the angels sit with him, and the angels fold the wings around each other. And so many of them join, that it actually folds, they even so many of you, there are more angels in this gathering than your people to listen in to join us. Until they even to the lowest level from the highest to the lowest, when finally when the gathering is finished, these angels leave and they rise up to the highest level. And the promises on says, Then Allah and Allah knows everything. Allah doesn't need

00:21:05--> 00:21:43

to ask for knowledge, he knows. So then Allah says to them, Where have you come from? Where did you come from? And the angels will say, we came from the servants by name of us on the earth, and they sit Subhana Allah, they glorify you, and they make beat of you. And they witness and they send these people believe that none has the right to be worshipped except you. And they're asking things of you. Yeah, Allah. So Allah says to the angels, and what do they ask of me? What are they asking? So and a lot, of course knows what they ask. So the angel says, they're asking you for genitalia, Allah. So Allah says, and have the servants of mine who asked for Jana BJU people here, have you

00:21:43--> 00:22:21

asked for gender? Yes. But have they seen my agenda? So they will say No, they haven't seen your agenda. So Allah sees now how do you think they would be if they actually saw my agenda? How much would they ask for it? So the angel sees that this is like, how much more would they be if they actually saw the agenda? And then they all the angels say, they also asked Allah for for your prediction. So let's see and prediction from what they said they want prediction from your janam your fire, and Alexis have they seen my channel? So there's no way Allah, they have not seen your channel? So Allah so can you imagine? How would they be if they actually saw my channel? If they

00:22:21--> 00:23:03

believe in me and my gender and gender without seeing it? How do you think these people would be if they actually saw it? And the angel see the ask for your forgiveness for the sins? So Allah says to the angels, I have forgiven them, and I have bestowed upon them what they are, I'm going to give them what they ask. And I've granted them protection from that which the last prediction. I mean, the promises on MC is an angel will say, oh, loaded amongst that group of people that were worshipping you, is a bad selling servant, a sinner, a bad person. And he just walked past that group. And he said, they feel a little bit. What about him? So Allah says, and to him, also I

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

forgiven him, for whoever just said, The he will not so you will not be excluded from this.

00:23:10--> 00:23:51

This is who your hobbies, this is who you allow my Allah is Allah Subhana. Allah says, A servant committed a sin, whatever sin it was big or small, Zina murder, whatever it might be, even smile, I got a message from someone in jail. That is, you know, in jail, even the one that is in maximum, the worst of the worst, this had is for him also, it's not just for the valley, it's for the worst of the worst. We know the man who killed 99 people, 100 people he killed. In fact, I don't think any of you you have killed 100 people. I don't think any of you here have killed your own children. But this had even for that person, unless he's a servant committed a sin. And then he came back and

00:23:51--> 00:24:31

said, Oh, Allah, forgive me, my son. I made a mistake. Yeah, Allah. So Allah said, My servant, he committed sin, yes. But he understood that he has a load and his load forgives. And that his load punishes, so I forgave him when he sinned again, and again. arsia Allah forgive me. So let's he again came back sinned, but he understands the Hazara. So I forgave him. And again and again Then again, over and over, same thing over and over day and night. He says, when he comes back to me and ask for forgiveness. So then a loss is, so do as you wish, and even if you suddenly, so long as you keep coming back, I have forgiven you. You know, when Ali said, once very profound, he said, maybe

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

the sun and some of us have a special sun, a sun which we know that we are weak, a weakness, but perhaps that sun is the means that you will intergenic How will that sun be that i intergender? Perhaps that struggle that you have day and night that you send today you send in at night, and then tomorrow you feel really great and matoba when Allah forgives you, but then you fall back and you keep making Toba, sincere Toba. Then your daily struggle between sin and forgiveness sin any stick far

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

It will draw that sin cause you to make constant his default, it will be that sin that actually leads you to gentlemen Allah forgive us. Allah says, This is my second favorite Hadith, we'll get to the last which is my favorite. Allah says, Allah himself says, Oh son of Adam, as long as you call upon me, no matter what it is, no matter what you ask, no matter how much sun you have, and you put your hope in me, just trust me. Trust that I am me and I will forgive you, then I promise I forgiven you for what you have done. And I don't mind nobody gets no second thought. It's gone. It won't even appeal on your, on your scroll on kiama expunged. Like, you know, if someone commits a crime, you

00:25:40--> 00:26:17

can do the sentence and Is it free, but it's required, it's not expanded, so on his name is so as a malkani, Allah says it will be gone, it won't, in fact, they'll be replaced with a good deed. So Allah says, oh, son of Adam, even if you send the most substance, but so long as you come back and ask me, I promise you, I'll forgive you. And I don't mind, oh, son of Adam, if your sins were to reach the clouds of the sky, and then you came to me asking for my forgiveness, I promise I will forgive you. The man, for example, who for 70 years was committing sin 80 years, he wasn't coming to Allah, he forgot Allah His whole life. Now when he sends us so big, and he's got that diagnosis

00:26:17--> 00:26:54

where the dilemma was kill all those who are sick. Now the doctor says you've got three months to live. Now he wants to come back to Allah. Allah says, For this man, if your sins reach the sky, but you asked me, then I will forgive you. Nope. And I don't mind I will forgive you. When Allah speaks about a third person who is even more dangerous, oh, son of Adam, if you were to come to me, this isn't the day of karma with sins that are close to filling the earth. And you were to meet me like that. But you didn't come. You didn't worship anyone besides me. So the Manson he did his Zina. He did his drugs, whatever it might be. He didn't even make it far to ask Allah to forgive him. And he

00:26:54--> 00:27:33

died with all those sins on his head. And he comes to Allah on the day of karma. And the only thing you can say Allah, I did all these sins, but I didn't come and check with you. Yeah, Allah. Then Allah says, You came to me with a world full of sins. I don't think inshallah any of us have reached that level. I mean, I hope not yet Allah forgive us. But a man will come with a world full of sins. And all he can say is I didn't come a chick, that Allah will say to this person, I will surely bring to you forgiveness also equal to fully the dunya. This is who Europe is. It gives Allah no pleasure in punishing, but it gives him joy in seeing his creation, obedient and and successful, and

00:27:33--> 00:28:12

forgiving the faults he knows us. In fact, the Hadith says, Allah created us weak so that we could soon and that we can come back and make Toba and so far, this act of returning to Allah, Allah loves that more than the one who didn't commit sin at all. I'm not saying go Muhammad cinnamon October. No, don't do that. But naturally, we will commit sin. And it's the act of Toba, that it really brings a lot of joy. At that moment, as you mentioned last week, that the man who makes tober is more Allah gets happier than that man who lost the camel and is about to die and then finds his camel and he's so happy. He says Allah you are my slave and amulet, meaning is delirious of

00:28:12--> 00:28:48

happiness, always even happier than him. When you and I make a stiffer stop for the loss of the law. It brings a lot more sense of majestic divine happiness. I had to live by people as I said, the message to say this religion is all about don't do haram haram don't do, why should I not do this? Why should I live as a Muslim? Why should I be in this Deen? Because it's an Allah, because he put you here, and he wants you to have a relationship with Him. And this hadith basically tells you how to love. Allah says, again, it's it's a hadith could see meaning Allah Himself is speaking. And he says, Oh, my servant.

00:28:49--> 00:29:34

I have forbidden operation on myself. I've made it hard for me to be operative. And therefore I made it hard for you to be abrasive, so don't replace each other. Oh, my servant. All of you are a stray except for those who have guided. So seek guidance from me and I will guide you. ask Allah for help, and I will help you. Allah sees all my servants. All of you are hungry, except those I feed to seek food of me and I promise I will feed you, you will have sustenance, you won't die of starvation. You won't go bankrupt. If you turn to Me sincerely, oh my servant. All of you are naked, except those who I have put clothes on to seek and seek clothing from me and I will clothe you, oh my servant.

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

You listen to this year, Allah, oh my servants, you send by night and by day, think about your sins, I think about my sins. The sins that you do. I do spy we know is between us and Allah. Allah knows it. He says to us, you've sinned by night and by day, and I forgive all sins. So seek forgiveness and I will forgive you. Oh my servant, you will not attain harming me. If you reject Allah. If you send

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

If you deny his existence, Allah says to those, you will not harm me, you will not diminish me, you will take away from me, you will not harm me so as to harm me and you will attain benefiting me from benefiting me. Allah says to the pious one, your Salah is not benefiting, your charity does not benefit him, you can't enrich, increase or decrease him, you only worship and turn to him for your own sake. Oh, my servants, were the first of you and the last from the beginning of creation until the end of creation. If the humans and the jinn and all of them, if you are as pious as the most pious hot, if every single one of us was like Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam, Allah says, that will

00:30:42--> 00:31:10

not increase my kingdom at all, will not benefit me at all, I don't need you piety. And if all of you the beginning to the end had the most wicked of hearts, you will all like he believes it won't harm align the least it will not take away a decrease from him. Oh, my servant was the first of you and the last of you, the humans in the gym, to raise up in one place all of you and you to ask me for things you keep asking me. I will and I will to give everyone I will to satisfy all your wants and desires.

00:31:11--> 00:31:13

Then it would not

00:31:15--> 00:32:01

then it would not decrease what I have any more than a needle is able to take water out of the ocean. Oh my servants. And this is the conclusion of this hadith. Allah says, Listen in terms of life at the end of life, oh my servants, it is about your deeds that I will judge you what you did. And then I will reward you or punish you according to what you have lived your life. So let him who finds good. Praise Allah. That's because Allah guided you. And even finds other than that. The blame is only on you. Now Jamaica Muslim in my last Hadeeth. And my favorite Howdy. As I began this lecture, if one asks the big questions, why am I here? Why should I? What should I think about in

00:32:01--> 00:32:44

All I'm supposed to do is make liquor liquor, make sushi? Is that what Allah wants? What Allah wants is for you and me to have a life that is connected to him? To seek him out? Yes, we cannot see him, but to live so that we can get nearer to him. Why? Because one day we want to see him one day we want to be in his presence in the dunya. The challenge is to seek him out in our in our in our work in our family in everything we do to make it about Allah to build that relationship with Him so that we will see him
