00:01:37--> 00:01:54

This month, my dear brothers and sisters is known as Shadow Toba the month of October. Now what is Toba? You know in very simple terms I'm sure you've heard of the word Taqwa. And you've heard of the word Toba, taqwa is to

00:01:56--> 00:02:41

prevent yourself to put up something because it comes from the acquire to prevent yourself from entering or going into that which displeases Allah azza wa jal. So to prevent to avoid going into that which displeases your maker spanha talent. Now with regards to Toba, Toba is when now you have gone into that which is displeasing Unto Allah but you do not linger. You do not stay there you have realized that you have done wrong, you have drifted you've you've displeased Eliza, Virgil, and now Toba is to remove yourself to come out of it and return back to Allah subhanho wa taala. It is where you have gone into something that is displeasing Unto Allah and now you're returning back to Allah

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

subhanho wa Taala seeking His forgiveness. And with regards to this My dear brothers and sisters, our Maker he says in the Noble Quran with regards to those who

00:02:52--> 00:03:00

engage themselves in Toba, Allah azza wa jal and says in Allah her, you Hey, Butoh be in.

00:03:01--> 00:03:13

In Indeed, Allah loves the terroir bean. Now for those for those of you who are familiar with the Arabic language you would observe Allah did not say in Allah you hey Buddha, even

00:03:14--> 00:03:29

though it is the regular form, it is translated as repent, the one who indulges in Toba. Allah did not go with the usual form in the Arabic language, but instead, he uses the exaggerated form, the intensive form

00:03:30--> 00:03:35

the Wab, which is translated as the one who

00:03:36--> 00:04:04

does Toba often, the One who engages in Toba excessively and now this excessiveness could be because of repeated sins. Repeated sins. Allah does not like sins, but Allah loves Toba. So despite falling into the sin repeatedly this servant of his keeps on turning to him seeking His forgiveness. Allah loves Toba. So one it could be because of repeated sins. The other reason

00:04:06--> 00:04:11

is that this excessiveness is because the servant of his

00:04:13--> 00:04:35

has ascended in terms of his ranks, he is now enjoying the closeness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he has increased knowledge about Allah azza wa jal and that is why he engages in Toba excessively and a good example for this is Mohammed. Salah turabi was salam O Allah,

00:04:36--> 00:04:41

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, obviously, you and I, we will all attest to the fact

00:04:42--> 00:04:52

that he was not an individual committing repeated sins, but then why did he engage in Toba? excessively? Why did he do so much of Tober

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

because of his closeness to Allah subhanho wa taala. It was because of his knowledge about Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Law. It was because of the fact that he knew that Toba is something extremely dear and precious Unto Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:05:09--> 00:05:54

In another place our Maker he says what to do it Allah hegemon Are you help me don't look at who is being addressed and commanded with regards to Toba or believers tend to Allah and Toba. The ones who are being addressed are not the sinners the transgressors the criminals the wrongdoers know rather the believers me known or you help me known or believers tend to align Toba. Allah Allah come to flee home, so that you become successful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us success in this world as well as the next me. So this month, my dear brothers and sisters is a good opportunity for you to turn to Allah in Toba. Don't ever let blasphemous thoughts Cross your heart cross your mind where

00:05:54--> 00:06:33

you think we have sinned too much that Allah is not going to forgive me. Allahu Akbar. Allah's Mercy is infinite Allah's Allah's magnanimity is wost ever encompassing. Each time you open the Quran you read Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim in the Name of Allah the Entirely Merciful the Especially Merciful, and you come across this I am many a time in the Quran in Allahu Allahu Rahim in Allah. Allah for Rahim indeed Allah is the most forgiving Allah is the Most Merciful. My dear brothers and sisters, Allah is more loving unto us than our own mothers. We learn this through the words of our messenger, Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:06:34--> 00:06:47

The narration goes along the lines of these words, once the Prophet was with the companions, and they see a mother who had lost her child, she was frantically looking for her child, and one can only imagine the grief the anxiety.

00:06:49--> 00:07:33

All of that was etched on her face as she was looking for her child frantically, so perhaps they were about to help her. Then they see her spotting her child. And now you can see relief and happiness washing down her face as she rushes to her child. She clutches at her child and she hugs her child close to her Bowser. The Prophet seizes this opportunity to illustrate something extremely beautiful. He asks his companions Oh, my companions, do you think this mother would ever throw her child into a fire? To which they reply in the negative? They say, No, you are a sort of law. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Allah is more beloved unto his servants than this

00:07:33--> 00:08:14

mother. Allah is more loving unto his servants than this mother is towards her child. This is Allah subhanho wa Taala media brothers and sisters. So therefore, do not give up. Do not lose hope. Do not despair in the Mercy of Allah turned to him turn to Him, seeking His forgiveness and he's waiting to forgive you. I'd like to share another narration. If I'm not mistaken, it's recorded in the Book of Imam intermedia Rahim Allah. You see, we have a few a hadith of the prophets, Allah Allah Islam, a few narrations that talk about the last individuals to enter Jannah. Now we're not talking about the last individuals at at a certain point of time now, right like right now we have what about 7

00:08:14--> 00:08:50

billion human beings spread across the face of this earth. We're not talking about the last human being from this 7 billion human beings now we're talking about mankind, in its entirety from our father, Adam, Melissa to Salam and to the last human being to set foot on the face of this earth. From all of humanity at large. You have a hadith that talks about the last individuals to antigen and from those interactions, you have one Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talks about an individual, the narration goes along the lines of these words will come a call at least that was salam, he will be brought in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the command will be issued for his

00:08:50--> 00:09:09

sins to be brought forth. And in other narrations also, we find out that this individual I mean in terms of this, this questioning, Allah will address that Allah will say, Oh, my slave, you did this and this on this day and on that day, Allah Akbar, who can deny,

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

no one will deny. We will hang our heads. You know dejected.

00:09:18--> 00:09:29

Why? Because everything has been recorded my dear brothers media sisters, it will be asked, you locked yourself away from the eyes of the people.

00:09:34--> 00:09:37

We tend to hide ourselves

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

from the eyes of the people.

00:09:43--> 00:09:53

Disregarding the fact that Allah is watching us. We are more worried we are more concerned about people seeing us about our name about our reputation.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

But little do we care about the fact that our Maker is witnessing us he's watching

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


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

so my dear brothers and sisters, it is it is a crucial juncture, crucial juncture.

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

The slave is being questioned and his sins are

00:10:17--> 00:10:37

now being brought forth and at this point it will be said, Bring forth his minor sins and leave the major sins aside. So one can only imagine perhaps the slave of Allah will say, a huge sigh of relief Alhamdulillah my major sins have not been brought forth and only my minor sins have been brought forth.

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

And after the minor sins have been now mentioned,

00:10:43--> 00:10:58

Allah will issue a command, transform all these minor sins into good deeds for him. Look at the magnanimity of Allah. Look at the generosity of Allah. Look at the kindness of Allah. Look at the love that Allah has for you.

00:11:00--> 00:11:42

Now at this juncture, this servant will blurt out, your Allah, the minute he witnesses the generosity of Allah, the kindness of Allah, the Mercy of Allah he will blurt out yeah Allah, but there are there are other sins of mine that have not been mentioned. Initially he did not want them to be mentioned. But now, the minute he witnesses the kindness of Allah azza wa jal, he says, yeah Allah some of my sins have not been mentioned. Why is he saying so? In his hoping that those sins will also be mentioned and then transformed into good deeds for him? At this point, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was narrating the the Hadith, the Hadith, he smiles so broadly that his

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

back teeth were visible.

00:11:45--> 00:11:58

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, as you can see all of these narrations I'm sharing them with you to fill your hearts with hope as you cross these beautiful lust and knights so that your heart is filled with hope.

00:12:01--> 00:12:45

And at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala your heart is filled with hope with regards to the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal, and you turn to him sincerely begging for his forgiveness turned to him in Toba and he will most definitely forgive you. He has a Virgil is waiting for us to turn to him he must take the initiative and turn to him. Therefore use these last 10 nights to turn to him to seek his forgiveness to cry and to him. Each and every one of us and this is why my dear brothers and sisters are talking about sins. Sins are an obstacle. I said this earlier on Allah does not like sins. Allah loves Toba. Allah loves repentance, but Allah does not make sense. Why? Because sins,

00:12:46--> 00:12:54

they are an obstacle, they prevent us from winning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is from the blessings

00:12:56--> 00:13:10

of Allah upon the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the fact that he has concealed our mistakes. He has concealed our flaws he has concealed our sins and this is why the pious people of the past, one of them is reported to have said Alhamdulillah Hilah de

00:13:11--> 00:13:36

la Mujer I Lizano B ra ha ha. All praises be Unto Allah, that he did not make for sins, a bad odor, a lingering bad odor. Just imagine my dear brother Maria Sister, if Allah had decreed that each time a sin is committed that it leaves behind a lingering bad odor, who would want to come near?

00:13:37--> 00:13:47

Who would want to approach us who would respect us? Who would smile at us? Who would want to hang out with us? Would we be able to go to the masjid

00:13:49--> 00:14:29

on Friday? After taking a shower and wearing the best of our clothes and sit in the masjid with? Who would who would be able to sit with a bad lingering odor? Why? Because Can anyone ever say that you know what, I do not commit any sin at all. If you were to touch your hearts, we all know of the skeletons in our closets, we all know of the sins that we have committed. So it is from the blessings of Allah that He has concealed our sins. What if Allah had decreed that our sins be plastered on on on our faces and and on our foreheads? Would we be able to walk gracefully on the face of this earth? Would we be able to interact with others gracefully Subhan Allah, we would be

00:14:29--> 00:14:33

ashamed. So it is from the blessings of Allah that He has concealed it.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

It is from his blessings.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

So my dear brothers and sisters, take yourself into account. introspect has a bow and forsaken Copeland to Heiser bow, take yourself into account before you are taken into account. Use these last 10 nights to reflect, to introspect to cry out to Him to acknowledge your mistakes to acknowledge your sins. It's between you and me.

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

Law, he is the best of judges. Turn to Him and beg for his forgiveness, and he will most definitely forgive you. May Allah azza wa jal help and bless each and every one of us to turn to him in sincere Toba and to secure his forgiveness. I mean, I mean does that Mullah Hydra
