00:00:00--> 00:00:21

Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah were buried. So today's Dora is narrated by Abdullah Abdullah Massoud in the long run. And this hadith is an authentic hadith narrated in the sunon of a Timothy, the prophet alayhi salatu salam once said,

00:00:22--> 00:01:15

a stuffy little law. So he says a stolen feudal law. I seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah de la ilaha illa who there is no day to worthy of worship but him and how you're young, the one who gives life and the one that keeps us up, right? What a tubal LA and I seek repentance with him or to him. Now this particular Hadith continues. The Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam says that you should save this Dora three times, particularly when you are in battle, and the enemy is standing in front of you. Now let's analyze this beautiful dorm my brothers and sisters, it's applicable to all of us, all of us can use this dorm. It starts off with a slow fiddle love. That stuff it'll love is when

00:01:15--> 00:01:58

you ask a love for forgiveness. And it comes from this particular word is still without its default. It's to request something and in this case, you request the forgiveness of a lot. So what exactly is forgiveness is still thought comes from the word monk, Farah and molfetta means to put a lid on something or a cover on something. And this is why a helmet is also called a monk Fira. And it's still found is that you're basically asking a low wing to forgive you to cover up your sins and mistakes. But here's the thing that's really interesting that I want to add to that it's a sight point is still thought of when you cover something you can you probably don't see what's under the

00:01:58--> 00:02:12

cover. But you know that something is there, because you can see the lid, you can see there's a bump, you can see that something is being covered or hidden. And so in the Quran, Allah also says

00:02:13--> 00:03:02

that at the end of sudut, earlier a moron fell fitter than the new banner what calf fitter I must say he, Tina, Catherine Nessie, Tina. And also Barry, say, Tina, our D, our ugly deeds, meaning our sins say it comes from the word ceja which means something that's ugly or hard to look at. So then we're asking a love for two things. Number one, we are asking Allah for forgiveness. But then we don't want to see any remnant remnants or traces of that sin anymore. We don't want to see the cover. We want to let a bury the cover too. So what do we ask a lot? What can fit on this a Tina? Oh, Allah bury the sin so that no, when you walk by now you don't see anything, any traces of that

00:03:02--> 00:03:40

sin. So when the Prophet Allah sought was missing a stuff at a law, you may be wondering, Well, why didn't you just ask a lot, a lot of mcphatter and see, Tina, why didn't you just ask? Well, it seems like that's something better. That's something more that we all want. The Prophet Allah is subtle, some asked for this all the time, both he did a little bit of this, and a little bit of his stuff out here like he, in other words, he incorporated both of these of the two worlds stuff, federal law is much more generic, it's more common. And at the same time, it's a little bit easier for people that when they're told to make his stuff out, in the back of your mind, subconsciously, you also

00:03:40--> 00:04:21

want a calf that I'm gonna say, you know, you also want to let to bury that past and to bury that sin. So it still captures a little bit of that as well. So you don't want just the sin to be forgiven, but you want it to be wiped out and cleaned out from your sleep. So this is the first thing now in context. Remember, this Hadeeth was being taught to the companions. And then the Prophet alayhi salatu salam tells them, you say this three times, particularly when you're in battle standing in front of the enemy, because obviously, you know, so many battles happen with the Muslims during this particularly in the metody phase. And this was kind of like a farewell dwara it's

00:04:21--> 00:04:32

anything could happen to them. So the first thing is make us default. Now, here's the beautiful lesson behind this. You just never know when your time is to go.

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

And we are taught always and forever. Every single day, make us default make us default. The Prophet Allah Azza wa sallam would make his default 70 to 90 times a day. The men that Allah guaranteed agenda is asking Allah to forgive him almost 100 times a day and he's doing this willingly. He's doing this by choice then

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

The head teeth continuous or the Dwyer continues Illa de la ilaha illa, who this is our Shahada. This is our identity, this is who we are. So you can see the mindset of these companions that when they're about to go into battle, you're basically you're making your his default because that's how you want to leave this world if that is what's written for you. And you also want to leave this world with the Shahada on your tongue. The Prophet it is subtle Sallam told us, that the one who mentions the Shahada men Pilar La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, whoever says this, and it's, it'll kill me here, it's the last thing that they pronounce in this world. Dahal agenda, they

00:05:41--> 00:05:53

will enter Paradise. That doesn't mean that you simply just pronounce the word and Holocaust you lived a whole life of disobedience. But you said this as your final sentence. Jenna is for you. dollar agenda here.

00:05:55--> 00:06:32

There's much more to it, and our entire core and in Sona had taught us what that is you have to live the life. Not everybody is blessed to have the Shahada as the last and final statement, and even if they think that they could just cop out at the last minute because they know they're going to die. They you know, something happened to me, they know and they can see that they're not going to recover. This is the end, this is the end road for them. It's not going to work. It's not what the Hadeeth is referring to, and all the scholars agree, there is no easy way out. So panela you have to commit and do the best you can in this world. So that in sha Allah, Allah you are blessed with the

00:06:32--> 00:07:18

ability to say that Shahada at the end in sha Allah hotel Allah And finally, who will how you will assume these are two names of Allah subhanho wa Taala alhaj the one who is the source of life, I can only talk to you I'm only breathing I had a chance to wake up and the first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows or makes makes us say when we wake up at hamdulillah he lathi. ohana Praise be to the one who gave me life bear that I met and after I was dead, so Subhana Allah, my brothers and sisters, like how you and it's, it's something important and it means something to all of us. All of us. Just the fact that you wake up, you can listen to this, you can breathe, you can talk

00:07:18--> 00:08:02

Allah gave you another day another chance. You say Alhamdulillah Allah The ohana, the one who gave us life as a human, to be upright to be steadfast. We can only practice our religion because Allah allows us to do that. So many people know about Islam, so many people know the poor and so many Muslims that you would I know. They know what's held on and held on doesn't necessarily mean that it's part of their life doesn't necessarily mean they're practicing this stuff doesn't necessarily mean it's part of their lifestyle. Maybe it could just be a time and a place where they practice this stuff. halaal hold'em has its time and place. It's not part of the lifestyle. This helps us to

00:08:02--> 00:08:11

achieve these things are part of our lifestyle. And finally, my brothers and sisters, what a tubal LA. Only you or Allah we make Toba to.

00:08:13--> 00:08:45

We had mentioned in past videos actually quite a few of them. Toba literally means to physically change something about you or about, you know, your your surroundings or your city or state of affairs, you physically change something. So if you have a struggle with listening to the wrong things, right, you're just listening to how to arm a lot or whatever you say things and you have a problem with this. You can control what you say or how you say it or what you listen to and how you listen to it.

00:08:46--> 00:09:24

doba is okay, I gotta get these earphones out. I gotta take a break from my iPad, I gotta just stop now. And you physically change you say to yourself, you know what, I'm going to take a break for a month. You know, when I go to school, it's really hard for me, my eyes are all over the place. And you know, I could actually I'm tempted to do commit certain sins, I know I could avoid, maybe I'll just take a semester off. Maybe I'll just take some time off, get myself together and then come back to school. That's okay. That's called tober that's physical when you physically change something often people mistake the toboe repentance is I just say phrases I go pray to Dakar Alhamdulillah.

00:09:24--> 00:09:29

And somehow things are going to transform if there's a problem with that.

00:09:30--> 00:09:35

Because if you have a crush on somebody, and they're sitting right beside you everyday in school,

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

and you're like, you know what, I really really like that person. And I don't know how to control my emotions. So let me go and talk to somebody you talk to your parents or you talk to you know, any mom or somebody and you were like little cutaway overcome this feeling these desires. And they say to you, you know what, make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala pray Torah, carrots and icicle and sha Allah. Just stop doing it.

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

There's a problem with that. Sure, these are good things, these are good places to start from. But the problem is, you still have to go back to class the next day, you still have to sit in that same spot. And you still got to see that person. And those feelings might still be there. I've said it over and over, you know, do eyes and worship. They're not like a button that you press and then you just wake up in your pious again or you just transform you become this completely different person. They are a means that facilitate change. That's why in Sala, you would be crying because you're moved by what's happening and you love prayer. But then at the same time, the guy beside you, you,

00:10:48--> 00:11:29

you know, they're just like, when is this Imam gonna finish? I just want to get out of the Salah. Oh, my God is taking forever. How long is the suta? So you have to have two different individuals pray doing the exact same act of worship, but they're experiencing it in a totally different way. Finally, those of you that struggle with your deen, but your heart isn't struggling with the deen, you know, you probably have problems praying and just doing the basics. But your heart is praying five times a day, your heart has gone above and beyond basics, and you want to fuse these things together. You want to have a complete picture in your life. How do you do that? How do you do that?

00:11:29--> 00:12:09

Number one, it always starts off with the people that you surround yourself with. You see, I'm not going to tell you just walk into a Masjid and suddenly, you know, hijab is gonna feel right. Salah is gonna feel right, you know, had Allah and how Tom is going to be clear and distinct. That's not what this does. And that's why when you walk into these places, and you get, what you do is you go there to recharge your battery, recharge your emotions, so that you can make those decisions when you need to, to make them Why? Because you have a full battery of, of emotion in your heart. Now you can go out there and tackle. So the first thing is, it's all about who you surround yourself with.

00:12:09--> 00:12:50

And friends that companionship, where do you go often? How do you spend free time? Again, I'm not saying every ounce of free time, you got to just stuff that Allah play for 23 hours of the 24 hours of your day. I'm not saying none of that. I'm just saying to you that there has to be that willingness in you. And every single person that calls themselves Muslim has an ounce of amen in you otherwise, you would never find value in the title, I am Muslim, you'd never find value in it. You would actually just say I'm not Muslim anymore. I don't care about that religion anymore. Just the fact that when somebody asks you, what are you and you're like, yeah, I'm Muslim. I know, I don't

00:12:50--> 00:13:01

practice I don't do this. I don't do that. But I'm Muslim. That's a great start. And you should be feel very proud. That that's a great start for you. Now build on that. And finally,

00:13:04--> 00:13:10

as long as you are alive, no one has the right to judge you.

00:13:11--> 00:13:21

As long as you are alive. You always have what it takes to be the best version of you. A believer and Muslim.

00:13:22--> 00:13:41

The worst people on the planet that touch the ground during the time of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam he went up to them and said to them, close towards the end of their life when they became Muslim. You're going to gender ob lol I hear your footsteps in paradise.

00:13:42--> 00:13:59

As sia or the Allahu Allah. This woman was married to arguably the worst human being in the history of mankind fit around. And still a lot quoted her Dora in the Quran.

00:14:01--> 00:14:48

Allah quoted at her exact sentence, he put it in his book. So here she is, she's married to the worst human being ever who claimed to be above Allah for call it an order book. hormoneller above Allah. That's what literally he says. But then Subhana Allah, she makes a door she asks for some Tibet firmness in her life. And Allah gives it to her. Now she's going to be somebody in paradise in sha Allah hotel Allah that we will hopefully all meet. Now I can't wait to meet someone like ESEA what are the 11? What are the 11 Hmm. And just say to her, you know, I read your story. And you made me strong. When I saw that you were surrounded with the worst human being ever the most powerful,

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

intimidating, he used to torture you and beat you and threatened to kill you. And you still persevered. You still survived all of that. You were my

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Inspiration you you encouraged me that I could face everything in this world and be the best version of myself. That's what I want to leave you with brothers and sisters.

00:15:10--> 00:15:30

And I'm saying this because it just it comes from a different place. It comes from, you know, yesterday was tomorrow, I had some conversations with some people and it kind of reminded me of this. During this lockdown phase, there's a lot of Muslims that are losing, losing trust and faith, they're not losing their Islam,

00:15:31--> 00:16:12

per se, but they're just losing that confidence. Because we can't get to go to the question is often and be around Muslims as often and here the reminders, go to the conferences, etc, etc. So hopefully I hope that this could at least encourage you and make you feel good about yourself. You're still alive. You're still here. You're still breathing. A lot didn't take you yet. So you still the doors of Toba, the doors of repentance, the doors of opportunity, the doors for a second chance, they're still open, utilize it in sha Allah, Allah azza wa jal bless you love you protect you honor you love them. I mean, wherever you are, may Allah which will keep you safe and healthy. I want you to know

00:16:12--> 00:16:27

that I think of you and that I pray for you. And most importantly, I pray that Allah azza wa jal reunites us together in his gender to Ferdowsi, Allah, Allah him and me. Second Hello hydron salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
