00:06:20--> 00:06:22

Let's start and

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

the rest whenever they come, they get here. Okay.

00:06:27--> 00:06:48

It's okay that I flip back and forth on the screen. That's fine. Okay. Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Allah here after lo Salah woman wala mother. So, before I begin real quickly here, let me just pop up the handout that a lot of you have especially for our students online as well

00:06:52--> 00:06:59

maybe to meet you can assist me on that. It's the same handout that we had last week.

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

No, that's what it is. Okay, that's fine.

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

Let me if you don't mind, Sister, if you don't mind. Can I just get a handout as well? Thank you.

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

I don't want to leave the camera. Thank you. Okay, yella let's get going guys. hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Wilbert. So

00:07:22--> 00:07:32

you'll see on the handout there, I just crossed out all the air yet just because the printer mixed up the Arabic writing I don't know why it did that.

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

So you can just ignore the Arabic because you have a visual on the screen anyway.

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

Dammit, I can go full screen. That's fine. Right. Okay.

00:07:46--> 00:07:50

Okay. So, our last

00:07:51--> 00:07:56

area that we discussed, we had looked at

00:07:59--> 00:08:17

all these verses prior to this one. So, at the top where it says handout number one we've looked at this verse already, there are those who spend neither wastefully nor strangely, but moderately in between we've done with this verse already. Then we have

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

it this verse

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

which is the next one.

00:08:25--> 00:08:43

That is verse number 68. Okay, which is the next one right in front right on your paper there. They are those who do not invoke any other day to besides or any other God besides Allah nor take a human life etc till the very end. I believe we did not start this A is that correct?

00:08:46--> 00:08:46

Okay.

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

Yeah, no, I don't have a tear that we did this

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

is a

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

disgrace. Okay.

00:08:59--> 00:09:17

Okay, we did discuss some of its points. So let's just do a quick refresher. Okay. So we're at this verse, okay, students, second one right at the bottom there. So where it says handout number one, we're done. The first one, we are starting from the bottom here and then we're going to complete both both sides inshallah today, okay.

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

It's a number 68. So you can you can write down 68 somewhere.

00:09:24--> 00:09:38

So this is a number 68 the one prior at the top is 67. Okay. So 68 the back starting from the top 69 And the second one in the middle, that's number 70. And the one after that 71.

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

So 6860 960-768-6970 71 Okay, yellow. So we are at verse number 68. So the long when they're in the center, they are those will Athena Allah Yeah, their own Allah Allah He Isla Han Han. So, where you see

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

Three major sins here are the three that are mentioned in this a number one is shark.

00:10:06--> 00:10:18

So associating anything with a lot. Now we mentioned that shark literally means when you take the rights of Allah and you give it to someone or something else, that's what choke is.

00:10:19--> 00:10:33

So every time use you hear the word shirk, always remember, it means to literally take the rights of Allah, whether it means one, right or many rights, it doesn't matter.

00:10:35--> 00:10:54

The quantity of it is irrelevant, doesn't matter. But you take one or more of his rights that are exclusive to him. And you share or connect that right to a person or thing. The moment you do that, that's called choke. A very simple example of that is

00:10:55--> 00:11:03

we praise and we glorify Allah, right, we say at Hamdulillah, we praise and we glorify Allah,

00:11:04--> 00:11:53

the praise and glorification that we may have for each other, it can never be the same as the glory and praise we give to Allah. Because the glory and praise to God that we give to Allah is infinite. There's no limit to that. But the praise that we give to each other is limited. And it's, it's confined, like it's restricted, and it has very strict parameters behind it. Even the word that is used to describe praising somebody's efforts is a completely different word method, as opposed to a hunt. So anything that is exclusive to Allah, and it's shared or attached to someone or something else that immediately constitutes shook. So that's the first major sin that is mentioned in this

00:11:53--> 00:12:45

area. The second one is murder. And the third is Zina. So we did go through these but we'll just skim over them very quickly. So the second is murder, and the third is Zina. Before we get to a thumb and you'll dwarf before we get to those two words. We need to talk about number two and three. Okay, so murderer and Xena, you have these two and in another sort of pseudo little is surah. They're inverted, so you have Zina as number two, and then you have murder as number three that's in surah. Al is surah. This Surah Surah Al Furqan. Murder is number two. Zina is number three, what what was the reason we mentioned why that happens? Why is it switched in one surah? As opposed to

00:12:45--> 00:13:29

the other? The answer to this is, so you want to make sure you note number two and three. These are both equal crimes in the sight of Allah. One is a physical crime, and the other is a spiritual crime. The physical crime is of course murder. And the spiritual crime is of course his sin and that is a crime of the heart. That is something that destroys a man. it extinguishes Iman the NOR and the light of iman murder in and of itself does that but it also it adds to it that obviously murder is murder, take the life of someone wronged wrongfully take the life of someone. And the Allah says that the one who does that is as if they've taken the life of all of mankind, which is a verse we

00:13:29--> 00:13:46

all know, right? So the point is, is that they both are equal crimes in the sight of Allah. So murder speaks for itself. What's very interesting is of course, Zina, how is Zina considered to be spiritual murder? And of course, it's referenced to the heart. How does that happen?

00:13:48--> 00:14:21

So we have to understand how that happens. There are several ahaadeeth that our Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam warns us about the Zina not only the actual act of fornicating, or adultery, but everything that leads to that is also worn to us so much. So remember, this, Zina is the only sin in Islam that Allah says Don't get close to.

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

It's the only sin in Islam, where Allah reveals an A and says, don't even go near it, don't even get close to it. And it's a verse found in so little is Surah Walla Takara boo Zina Don't get close to Zina. Right. And that's very powerful. Because why Zina? In and of itself, everything that revolves around Zina, there are so many subtleties in it, there's so many subliminal messages behind it. Like you could be seeing it and hearing it and looking at it and and even thinking

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

about it and not realizing the spiritual impact that it has. They say that if you can control what you see, and what you hear, you will control everything you do.

00:15:14--> 00:15:26

So the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam says, I warn you of the Zina of the ice, okay? We that's obvious. Then he also says I warn you of Xena of the ears, what's in of the ears?

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

What is in of the ears.

00:15:31--> 00:15:35

So Zina of the ears is anything that is

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

is hot off like lying,

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

music

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

backbiting

00:15:48--> 00:16:20

carrying news, wasteful talk just blabbering on and on and on on the Prophet it salat wa salam calls that a thulsa rune there's a group that will come on the Day of Judgment they're called a thump Salado and these are not people that were dishonest. This is this was literally the chatterbox and he says that the chatterbox the thugs out rune are going to be one of the farthest away from me on the day of judgment. Can you imagine that? It's not like they're actually they're saying anything wrong. He's not accusing them of lying or backbiting or anything, just you talk too much.

00:16:21--> 00:16:45

Okay, just so that we're clear on this every we all know somebody in the family that talks like this and they just can't stop and they're like, oh my god, you should hear about my dad sky was so blue. And then when I dropped my phone, I picked it up and unrealism I got assigned even my phone and then I was went back on I was just thinking about oh my god, I gotta pick up somebody else's and it just go on and on. It's the one of those persons where you can't squeeze in a word or two.

00:16:46--> 00:17:27

That's actually a disease of the heart. Talking too much profit isolated sentences. I warn you of categorical column talking too much, Warren Warren, the OMA to do that. Like that is something somebody has to like you they know they have that habit that they can just carry on a conversation until you're multi Emma like they just can go on and on and on. They have to realize that that is unlike that is inappropriate of a believer believers, they don't cheat. They don't become chatterboxes. Their their Eman controls all of that. And everybody who experiences that knows that. People who do that it's it's inconvenient, it's annoying. You don't like being around people who do

00:17:27--> 00:18:07

that are very dominant and want to have control of the conversation and so on. So, point is, is that the zinna of the years, one of the most famous examples of this as people usually associate music to it. I don't want to talk about the ruling on music. That's not our conversation here. Let's just stick to like music with obviously lyrics that are inappropriate, right? That's called Zina to the ears. You know, when it just sounds good, even if you don't understand it. You know, there's a lot of people that listen to like songs of different languages, and she's just like, Oh, my God, I love the way I love his voice. I love how she does this, the chorus and n if your ears get attached to

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

that.

00:18:10--> 00:18:18

I'll say something to you may not have heard about music. It's almost like worshiping it's almost like committing Shahrukh.

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

It's a very hard statement to make.

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

Why would I say such a thing?

00:18:25--> 00:18:43

I can show you how if somebody gets lost in just like, engrossed into listening to music in general, that they come very close to or they develop the attitude and approach like somebody who is bowing down to an idol.

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

How

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

music?

00:18:49--> 00:19:08

Can you see it? You can see the person sing it, but can you see the beauty in their voice? Can you visually see that? When they project their voice and they start to sing, you can't see those lyrics, you can hear them, you can't see the beauty in their voice. But you can hear it. So you can't see it.

00:19:09--> 00:19:58

You can hear it. But it's almost as if it has like when you hear it enough times and you fall in love with a song. Think about how often it captivates your imagination. And you can associate it with an emotion. That's how people remember songs from like 40 and 50 years ago, even if they don't listen to it all the time. Because studies show that if you attach anything to an emotion, you'll remember it forever. So if you attach like a really sad song to a particular event that happened to you in your life, you'll you'll remember it forever. Problem with music whites. One of the reasons why it's hot on is that it really really impacts the heart. That's why when you ever watched those

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

like American Idol shows and

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

So the judges will say, No, no, I didn't feel your song because it didn't come from the heart. They want you to have and bring out that song. They want your heart in it. Like if that's not core, and that's not worshiping a lot on what is like, it's almost exactly the same except it's not for me, it's everything else. That's one of the reasons why music can be such a problem for a believer. It's such a problem. I still find it till this day. Like it's it's really difficult to understand how somebody can do both. They can be engrossed into Koran, and cry when they hear these yet, and at the same time engrossed into lyrics and cry when they hear the lyrics at the same time. Like it's a very

00:20:45--> 00:21:03

bizarre, unusual thing, but you know, it is what it is. So that is what some of the dilemma define as Zina of the IRS the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says I warn you of the Zina of the hands, which is obviously obvious as well. So while he has known

00:21:04--> 00:21:20

and not nor commit fornication, remember the thing I want you to take away from this is it is more than just the act of fornication. Okay, that's the whole point here. Now, next, Allah tells us here

00:21:22--> 00:22:11

or mania fie Valley can yell CA, a thermos see the word a thumb at the bottom of your page. So yell called Asana. Asana is Ethem. It literally means sin. ISM, okay. It's the kind of sin where you don't think about it, you just do it. And then later on, you're like, Whoa, oh, my gosh, what did I just say? What did I just do? So sometimes somebody might do something, not knowing that it's wrong, but just carelessly do it anyway. Everybody else is doing it, or it's become so common, what's the big deal they trivialize it. That's, that's called Islam. So it's like the most generic and careless type of sin. There are many words in the Quran and many words in Arabic to describe sins. So that's

00:22:11--> 00:22:45

what Islam is. It's the careless sin that is done without thought. And it could be small, it could be big, it doesn't matter. So Allah says that anybody who falls in one or three of these major crimes, spiritual crimes mentioned here, they will develop this habit of falling into a Santa, they'll just be doing things not knowing, not understanding, and even not caring. Right? Then you have more yellow thumb, the next area.

00:22:49--> 00:23:20

That word Mohan, as you see on the top of the page, when you turn the page, the other side, that's for this area, that is a number 69. So Mohana is for that A, their punishment will be multiplied on the Day of Judgment, you'll die I flew, we'll reserve we own a piano. Well, you didn't see him. There punishment will be multiplied. The the word for that is you'll dwarf so that's the bottom where you see here. You'll darf see that there?

00:23:21--> 00:23:40

So where we have the three major sins the last word you laugh, that's to multiply? Quick question students. Why is Allah multiplying his punishment on the people who fall into one of these or these three crimes? Either one or all three of these crimes? Why do they get multiple folds of punishment?

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

Can you accidentally commit Chuck?

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

For the most part, no.

00:23:47--> 00:24:27

You may accidentally commit murder. But the A is specifically talking to somebody who does it intentionally Yuk Toluna, Neff, Jakob Toluna, Neff? seletti, illa Bill health. So Allah describes that they killed somebody wrongfully without any help. But and then yes, noon, can you accidentally commit Zina? No, that involves an intention or a desire. You think about it, and you end up doing it and then the desire starts to develop and you want it. That's why it is impossible for somebody who commit Zina whilst they're fasting in Ramadan for them to ever make up that day.

00:24:28--> 00:24:45

Right. So they unanimously agree that if somebody commit Zina whilst they're fasting in Normal Dawn, you know, that's obviously one of the things that break your fast right? During the daylight hours. So how do you repent from that you just repent and hope for the best because it's impossible for it to be an accident.

00:24:46--> 00:24:53

That was the second set again, a second degree murder stance, like

00:24:54--> 00:24:58

somebody's working to house kind of probably self defense. Yeah.

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

Well,

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

Like, what kind of seems like, I mean, that opens up a whole nother chapter because that has specific rulings to it when it's self defense, okay. And there are rules and conditions behind that. Yeah, the ultimate goal is that if you're defending yourself from somebody trying to take your life that you do so as best as you can without taking there's, that's the ultimate general rule of thumb as a believer, you You always try your best not to take the life of anyone, you leave that in the hands of the law, if somebody is deserving because they're just an you know, a serial killer. Okay? Like they've just done this so many times, you leave that through the law to decide if you know they

00:25:46--> 00:26:05

should be put to death and things like that, right? But to take that upon yourself, if you're defending yourself, that's the ultimate goal. But if it happens, you kind of leave it to the judicial process to deal with that. That's how Islam generally speaking deals with it. It goes into much more other other categories but generally that's what you want to achieve. Right?

00:26:07--> 00:26:21

You'll die fella will either we all will pm so their punishment will be multiplied on the Day of Judgment. While you do see him or Hannah, and they will remain in it forever. They will remain in that punishment forever in disgrace what punishment is Allah referring to?

00:26:23--> 00:26:41

See that? Yeah, whole load fee. More Hannah. So yeah, hello, Holly. Dina, you guys know this word means to be in something forever. Eternally, call it and yellowed saw the same word eternally?

00:26:42--> 00:26:57

What is it that Allah is referring to? That if they do, their punishment is multiplied and they really will remain like that forever more Hana. That's what it means. It means disgrace. It means public humiliation and embarrassment.

00:26:59--> 00:27:46

And everybody will know and hear, you know, like, if there's like, whether it's a group of people or millions of people, but you all know that one person who did the craziest thing. Everybody will know. Yeah, Solon, Salman. Subhan, Allah yo see what Allah did to him? Well, it all deter, that's Mohana that every body on the Day of Judgment, will be made aware of that person's crime, whatever it is that they did. So what is Allah referring to here? They're really split in two opinions. And they say all three of those spiritual crimes is one opinion. Or it could be one of those three crimes. And the punishment is multiplied for the person who makes those crimes, that habit, they

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

never learned the first time.

00:27:49--> 00:28:37

Okay, so people who fall and they do that they make it a habit carelessly, without any conscious without any awareness. That's what it's referring to. So basically, Allah is saying, look, you've had so many opportunities to repair and address these issues in your life. And you've chosen not to, and you've chosen to just kind of let yourself go, well, that's unacceptable. And that is the lowest of the low so that's where Allah says, now for you, I've given you so many chances, so many opportunity to recover and repent, you've chosen not to. So as a result of this is where the conclusion was, Well, are you right? Now the A yet will flip. And now we will start to look at Hope.

00:28:38--> 00:28:44

So far, these areas have been pretty depressing. Because they've addressed a lot of problems.

00:28:46--> 00:29:31

Poor and does this all the time. It'll address all different kinds of issues. Allah will talk about his punishment and who's deserving of that all the time? What Allah never does is he never stops the conversation there. Allah will always follow along after a depressing subject. So in this case, all the spiritual crimes all those who have their either multiplied people who have gone to the hellfire, the mint is constantly asking Allah steer me away from the path that's leading me to the fire, all of that. Now we get into hope. Now, the reason why I mentioned that is this right? And this is especially important for some of the students online, you have to understand that Islam is

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

not like not everything can it has to be framed in a positive way. Because Allah doesn't do that in the court and the prophets Ali site was salam doesn't do that in a sunnah. Part of balancing your relationship with this religion is you sometimes have to look at the other side of the coin. Does that make sense? That you've got to be aware of both perspectives. And even if you put aside religion in life, you have to know the risks.

00:30:00--> 00:30:28

In the consequences of certain choices, you've got to always know that it's not perfect out there. And it's certainly not the same in how you build your relationship with this deal. You've got to be like, Man, there's so much beauty in Islam. But if I mess this up, there's a lot of horror as well, just like in any religion, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, every religion on the planet has the other side of the coin. So that's why sometimes I get

00:30:29--> 00:31:02

a little confused when I meet some Muslims that just say, no, no, no, we want to just keep it positive. Just keep it positive all the time. Look, I get where you're coming from. And yes, that's important. But it's also important, otherwise, these yet wouldn't be here. Allah wants us to be at least aware of the other side of the coin. Here's the beauty about all of this. Which one would you say? Is the majority of the aid of the poor end on the positive side? Or the majority of the A yet are speaking about punishment? And jahannam? Which one do you think it is?

00:31:03--> 00:31:53

Yeah, maybe more than 90% of the Koran is all Allah's mercy, hope and positive. Right? Very few, yet in between, discuss these issues. But my point is, they are there. And as believers don't be naive to these kinds of, like, pay attention to them. And put a bit of that fear in your heart, there is only good and benefit that's all created. Sometimes we need to like, you know, when somebody at the message tells you, Hey, be quiet. You're too loud. When you come here. Some kids will be like, okay, and then five minutes later, what do they do? They start running around like little tornadoes over just doing it all over again. But when somebody from the message, sees the kids parents and said,

00:31:53--> 00:32:35

Listen, your kid, I have I've recorded what they were doing. Look, yeah, see, he broke it. And when the kid now goes home, if the kid might feel like there is a mini day of judgment in the house with their parents, and the parents will say the exact same thing. You're supposed to be quiet and respect domestic. Why didn't you now you're grounded. Alright, now you can have these privileges. And so it's the same idea here is that look, you can enjoy your time in this world, connect with this Dean do and enjoy all the blessings of it. But just remember, there is that other side that you should be conscious of and aware of. So now we're going to see the other side of this coin, the

00:32:35--> 00:32:54

beautiful part of all Salah put this image for us to think about. Now Allah will say, Okay, here's how you recover. For me, here's the first point. So there's a verse number 71. As for those who repent, that's verse number 71. Here's the amazing thing about this A, the fact that it exists.

00:32:55--> 00:33:16

It's amazing Allah subhanho wa Taala would put an A like this for us. Just the fact that it's there. It's so filled with hope. Allah says Allah accept us for those who repent. Now, I want you to see what I wrote step by step guide on how to have your Toba accepted by Allah number one. Allah says the word Tabitha

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

Teva is this word right here.

00:33:20--> 00:33:47

Here, see that? That's tab, a tab that is the past tense verb of Toba. Tebah literally means to repent. Tab in Arabic is defined as a physical type of repentance. It's not restricted to verbal, or like a spiritual, emotional thing. Like you don't just feel like you're like, oh, man, I just feel bad. That's not Toba.

00:33:49--> 00:34:35

Or saying stuff. It'll that's not tilde. tilde is a stall federal law. I feel horrible. Now I got a block of those websites on my phone. I gotta figure out how to do that. Or I gotta stop saying that word. It's wrong. I'm swearing. I gotta, I gotta control my tongue. That's terrible. When you physically change something in your life, to facilitate and accommodate a less forgiveness, that's called Toby really important. So you can't just say your stuff it Allah, you know, not a full time he Jabby but quiet. No, no. If you want your assaulted Allah to be meaningful, and you want it to be counted as true, Toba? What do you have to do? You've got to really battle tough with this hijab,

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

like it's gotta be a part of your life somehow. Right? Allah as long as Allah gives you time and you're wake up every single day just know that that is an opportunity. So you have to keep on struggling and working through that. This part is what I call the first step to E min maintenance. Okay, maintaining EMA, which is the concept very few Muslims even think

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

about the whole maintenance period of iman, you know, years ago, I used to see a chiropractor, right? And I would see him for like one year. So we go through this routine, he'll do these adjustments and whatever, and I start feeling great again. Then he says, Look, for the rest of your life, now, you've got to go through maintenance. So he's got to, like, do his thing once a month or whatever, I haven't done it. All right, I just really don't know if I need to or not. But the point is, is that that's where this idea came from. It's like, subhanAllah, right? You go through this maintenance to keep your body in a certain place, that you can function and perform your daily

00:35:41--> 00:36:10

duties. That same mentality, that mindset, if you apply it to your iman, my goodness, how your life changes very quickly. What's Amen maintenance or maintenance of your iman, that's the first thing is you start looking at all the black dots in your life, they're like, Man, I gotta fix this. I got to repair this, I got to alter this, I got to change this. Every one of us have black dots in our life. Every one of us.

00:36:12--> 00:36:19

I argue that first step is the hardest in the whole process is just taking the time to be like to get serious.

00:36:20--> 00:36:25

What is Allah saying? He never changes the state of the people until they do.

00:36:30--> 00:36:39

Nothing, nothing that we study will be helpful to anybody unless they make the decision to do what? Okay, you know what, I want to do this.

00:36:40--> 00:37:20

Think about your relationship with the dean. Isn't that how you relate to the dean? You don't just do it because it's the right thing. And that's it. That's not the the decision that puts you over the end of the day, your heart, you want this? You want to do these things? That's why you end up doing it. Because let's be honest, if you and Allah protect all of us, if somebody made the decision that they don't want to practice their Deen, could they, you know, essentially, could they make that decision? Yeah, they could just be like, I'm done. I'm not praying, or I'm not going to read no more correct, I'm finished with them. And they can just wake up tomorrow and they will deal with the

00:37:20--> 00:38:03

consequences. But the point is that choice they can take me Allah gives them that chance you can make that choice. So this is the first step to maintenance is that the willingness and the desire that I want to now address these weaknesses in my life, it starts off with tab number two. So now you understand what Toba is. Every time you say repent to Allah, you're telling the person and yourself, I got to physically change my state or something. That's a comedy of facilitating the sin. I've got to somehow figure out to cut that thing off. That's what you're doing. Okay. You got to do your best to protect yourself and putting your iman in situations where it's constantly tested.

00:38:04--> 00:38:11

It'll learn and turba number two, what am I gonna see there? Number two, M and N It literally means believe.

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

And believe. Okay,

00:38:16--> 00:38:25

we're at a number 71. We're almost at the end of the surah. Isn't it safe to assume students that this the audience of suitable for Khan already have Eman?

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

Like isn't it safe to assume that they already have Eman? Don't?

00:38:31--> 00:38:51

We've been talking about Day of Judgment. We talked about the battle Rama and they already have human. Why is Allah telling him you need to have Amen. You already have what Allah is telling you to have and believe. What's happening here? What what do we tell a new Muslim? When they become Muslim? What was the first thing we say to them about their sins? It's well

00:38:54--> 00:38:58

you know what m n means here. It's a fresh start.

00:38:59--> 00:39:06

Some scholars say eminent is mentioned here because the person who makes a sincere tilde

00:39:07--> 00:39:32

and they renew their intention with Allah, that's MN and here, it's a renewed intention to do the right thing. All your sins are forgiven, just like the new Muslim. It says if you're, you're sort of internally, re affirming your shahada with Allah. It's amazing. So it sounds like it looks like this. It's when the believer is like, you know,

00:39:33--> 00:39:36

I can't do that no more I'm done on I'm going to stop that from now. And

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

that's when the believer makes that promise. And some people like they have that epiphany epiphany. You know, there's just one time they say this, I'm done. You know, I always tell the story of a brother a new years ago who used to smoke cigarettes for 25 years, more than a pack a day. And then he quit. And he was like smoking. He had quit smoking for years. And I remember we were

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

This conversation came up and I just asked him like, honestly, how did you do that? Like people have to go get medication, they gotta go get nicotine and all kinds of different things to like, just fight the craving, how to cut off 25 years. He just said, he goes, Look, I used to have this habit before doing anything since my eyes open to cigarettes. Then I'd go to the bathroom, brush my teeth after that heartbreak, two more cigarettes. And then he'd go on his to work on two more, two more every big two to two. And he'd go through like two and three packs a day. And then one day he woke up and he's like, You know what I'm done.

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

Now that was

00:40:39--> 00:41:16

he never smoked again. Every time he had a craving, you know what he did? I SubhanAllah. Like, Allah really puts it in you when you make that decision to change something. This is what he put in his mouth. Every time he had this, like desire, he like just shove a sea whack in my mouth, and I just start biting on it. And then I'll use that bite it on and then I'll clean it and bite on and it was I just did that for a couple months. But the desire to smoke, it just literally disappeared. And I tell his story because I think that that is one example of

00:41:18--> 00:41:34

Toba tunnel Suha and we're today we're going to talk about the three. Actually we didn't and I'll give that to you right now three types of Toba mentioned in the Quran. Okay. So right that somewhere right at the bottom here somewhere. Three types of Toba in the Quran.

00:41:35--> 00:41:38

Number one is what you just saw is tab.

00:41:42--> 00:41:47

Yeah, I saved this conversation for later. But since we're talking about it right now, let's just do it right now.

00:41:49--> 00:42:02

So the first one is the one that we just did tubba. That is also called Tober. But it will that's keep it the way the A I mentioned it. So a tab number two is tilde.

00:42:04--> 00:42:40

There's an A that uses the word Toba in a very specific way. I'll share that with you a little later in the last day. Number three is called metabo metabo M A T A, B A metabo Matoba. So you have tabber you have Tober and then you have metabo. Go back to Tabgha. Add another word beside it because these are just some of the similarities in Arabic. Besides Tabgha, add Toba, T A WB

00:42:42--> 00:42:43

Toba.

00:42:45--> 00:43:00

Que these are just similar similar forms of the same word. So at least you have most of them, you have tab or taupe, then you have Toba and then you have metabo give you what all three of them is in in a minute. Just keep it up there.

00:43:02--> 00:43:37

So you now know why Allah says I want you to believe he's not saying I want you to have amen for the first time because you've already achieved our lessons. I want you to make a renewed intention. This is a fresh start. Here's the third step to having your Toba accepted. Well, I mean, I'm Alan salejaw, is that you do good deeds. That's number three now. So you have look at number three there I wrote it for you perform any act of righteousness. The wording is very specific in number three that I put for you. The reason why I write it this way is the a take a look at the AM.

00:43:38--> 00:44:02

Well i mila and then Angela the same words come side by side which is not very often in Quran. But just the structure of the word is different. Here you have the 10 ween with an Elif attached to the lamp. Here you don't you have just the original verb. Here you have fat taffeta, you have fatter casserole amela

00:44:03--> 00:44:22

is past tense. And Len is talking about one action. But like you do that action to the best of your ability no matter how easy or difficult or miniscule it is so for example, smile

00:44:23--> 00:45:00

you know, we all know somebody who are just like, like people who are just they don't smile. They just seem to have like a depressing face. 24 hours a day. Yeah, we all we all know somebody like that. And you guys are smiling because I know you know some of the I know that people like that as well. Just no matter what it is. And it's not that they're like Grumpy or me. It's just like their facial features like that. They just they can keep a still face all day, all the time. But then they read a hadith of our Prophet Allah it was said I'm saying that encourage

00:45:00--> 00:45:44

Getting us to smile a lot because every time we do it, it's a form of sidecar. Right? Every single time you smile, and a prophet eyesight was empty, he used to smile. Hola. Oh, did he? It was literally part of his appearance like a smile 90% of the time, always, you could just see this beautiful subtle smile, you could see a few of his teeth and in the front of his undeath that was almost like permanent on him. Alehissalaam so smiling was a part of him. That's a habit you have to develop that doesn't come naturally, that you have to like develop that personality to just always smile and smile and just keeps on even if you're just talking to more regular things like, Man, I

00:45:44--> 00:46:09

just had a good burger today. And you just you tell your friend to just like pop out, right? You just smile that's called I'm Hola. Hola is when that person that has like no smile. 24 hours a day, they break that habit. And they give that one rare smile and people's like, like God, I never knew you had teeth. Oh, my God, you smiled. All right, so that's called I'm a Len.

00:46:10--> 00:46:59

It's when you do it. That's just for any of you that study Arabic, the to fat has on the top. In Arabic, we call this monsoon, the accusative form of the verb. When you see this happening on a verb, it means that they did it and they put effort to do it, and they achieved it. And Allah is not looking at the size of the act, he's looking at that fact that you put that effort, you're genuine, you're insincere, and you achieved it. As little as that smile. Everyone noticed that they appreciate it. But the point is, you did it just just for the sake of Allah, like, I gotta, I gotta just start smiling more. That's Amin, that's how I'm on it. So a love now put it together, what

00:46:59--> 00:47:39

Allah is saying is the righteous deed that I want you to do is I want you to start at your own pace. You know yourself what your start can look like, the littlest thing, if it's a smile, if it's just like holding a door open and just thinking about other people. That's all alone. Once you do, you're wherever you go. And you see like, you know, somebody dropped a wrapper or something. And if you're able to like, obviously, you know, in a safe way, you can just pick it up and UPC a piece of paper, you just throw it in the garbage, just the little things that's on the lamina. And the second thing to know about this is that Allah is paying attention to everything that we do for his sake, even if

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

we when we do it, we don't realize we're doing it.

00:47:43--> 00:47:53

You know how some people they just have a habit of being helpful. It's just who they are. Like, if there's a dinner, they're the first ones there to like, help cook or do something.

00:47:54--> 00:48:02

If there's a event, they're the first ones to be like, Okay, what should I do? Should I bring the water, just like, and it's like, naturally don't even think twice, it's just do it.

00:48:04--> 00:48:49

By the way, a lot of you are like that, like the students here, a lot of you, I can see that, especially those of you that have been with me for a while, for a few years, since before COVID. I've seen some of these habits in you were very willing and just you do these like little things to serve your fellow students, but also your teacher and just to make the atmosphere pleasant, without even thinking about and I can like, they say that you can see someone's sincerity because when when it comes from one heart, it reaches the hearts of those around you. Like so it's very easy to see when somebody's sincere when they're fake. Right. And so kind of lay and I pray Allah protects all

00:48:49--> 00:49:13

of that in all of us in shot low terror, though, right? So I mean, mln next word. So now you see you understand what this is. It's more than just doing good deeds. Like it's any little thing. The fact that you did it and you try it and you completed it, and you're just thinking about it, and you don't trivialize it. You don't take it for granted. And even if you do it without realizing you did it or Lessing Oh man, I counted all of that. Don't worry.

00:49:14--> 00:49:21

salam Wa alaykum is one of them by the way will give celebs randomly like all day right? Hey so what are you doing?

00:49:22--> 00:49:48

Hey well I'm not realizing every while ecommerce tsunami you did pronounce it well accounted for something you'll see it on your scale inshallah you can just be like my God every Salam even to like random Muslims. Everything's on my scale here today. Oh my god, it made it then Allah says this word Salah when you see because we're in a classroom I can take my time through these verses. If this was a hotbed we'd be done all of this right.

00:49:49--> 00:49:55

But in the classroom you can break it on really taste the flavor of this a or then unless a solid one.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

Students Why does a lot always say why

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

I'm evil Solly hat here airless versus a Latina aminu. We're Anil Solly hat. Why does Allah always put Salih hat or solid? After when he describes righteous deeds?

00:50:14--> 00:50:16

You have to know this word, okay? Solid.

00:50:18--> 00:50:29

Solid means you're always working on you, you're always refining yourself that solid when you're refining and working on yourself,

00:50:31--> 00:50:34

in what sense, obviously for the better, that's solid.

00:50:36--> 00:51:10

Here's where I, you know, I appreciate my name, my name is mostly comes from the word solid. The difference between solid and mostly solid, he's always working for himself, mostly is always working for himself, and helping people around them. You're never settled with just you alone. And that's the for when I learned Arabic and studied this lesson, the first time of my life, I actually appreciated my name. I used to be in love with the name most luffa. And I was dying to change it, but to never happen.

00:51:11--> 00:51:13

They say that in Arabic come they say

00:51:14--> 00:51:21

you're out if you're out of a shock, see, A B is behave like you know someone's personality, by their name.

00:51:22--> 00:51:46

So your name is an extension of who you are. And especially if you have a name that's connected to some, you know, meaning either in Arabic or a nice poem in a different language or something else. Generally speaking, it gives an insight to who you are. And that's just how Allah designed these labels of names given to everyone Yep.

00:51:50--> 00:51:50

said

00:51:51--> 00:51:52

yep.

00:51:54--> 00:52:01

They should, because it's the Sunnah. So for online students, when somebody reverts do they have to change their name to an Arabic name, yes, they should.

00:52:03--> 00:52:47

They should, especially if you know, it's not an issue, it's not challenging. And you don't, what you don't have to do is you don't have to change your legal documents to reflect your Muslim name, your Muslim name, the first priority behind it is how the people address you. And what you'd be called upon, called by on the Day of Judgment, that's the goal behind the Muslim name. So two things, how you want other humans and your fellow brothers and sisters to address you by that's the first thing in the worldly sense. And the second thing is, is that once people address you by your Muslim name, then that will be the name that inshallah you die with. And that you will be the name

00:52:47--> 00:52:50

that you will be called upon on your multi

00:52:51--> 00:53:09

passports, citizenship license documents are all secondary. You can leave those because that has nothing to do with your relationship with Allah. That's why I get this question sometimes where people ask me, okay, you know,

00:53:10--> 00:53:21

I want to name my son Musa. But is it okay if I just leave his documents as Moses? Or, you know, Joseph and Joseph,

00:53:23--> 00:54:00

right? Can I do that? Is that permissible? You know, technically it, it's because the legal documents have no bearing that no connection to you, as the individual. Because in one country, you can be one person and you move to another place, you can still put yourself through a legal process of changing now you can change that label, all you want, it's long and whatever, but that the point is that door is open for you legally in terms of documents, but when it comes to your label, where you are called upon and you are known for and you're called upon with on the day of judgment and when you die, the people how they remember you by that's the most important thing, and that should

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

be most of them. Okay.

00:54:03--> 00:54:14

Ilam and turbo Ermanno emila, Milan salejaw. So now do you understand when Allah says, well, Athena and Anwar middle Salah had what Allah is when we say righteous deeds, what Allah is really telling you to do.

00:54:15--> 00:54:16

Like work on you.

00:54:18--> 00:54:44

Your righteous deed starts with yourself, not what your righteous deed can do for others. It has to be like what it does for you. Salah is also when you're being super critical of yourself, even if others are like, it's not a big deal. Like who cares? You only swear like when you're angry, like it's not a big deal. I don't care. Salia is like no even when I'm angry. I don't want to talk like that.

00:54:46--> 00:54:51

Felt Willa ek your bed did Allah who say to him hasna that's the step by step guide.

00:54:52--> 00:54:58

Three things now number four is this is just Allah's mercy.

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

So you

00:55:00--> 00:55:16

You see number four, the bonus reward from Allah. Herodotus felt like a you a bad deal Allah who say at him Hassan it? These are the people that Allah will change their who's evil deeds Allah will change into good deeds

00:55:17--> 00:55:21

that this person, like is there anything alluding to that?

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

Like are you asking for anything like that? No. Who do you want us Allah to forgive you? Allah says, Allah, all of the people who go through these three steps.

00:55:35--> 00:55:51

These three steps you go through them, here's what you get from Allah, Allah, Allah will take all of your scale of be evil deeds, and Allah will change them and transform them into good deeds. What can Allah who have photo Rahima before we come to them,

00:55:53--> 00:55:56

understand what this means. Here's the bonus reward from Allah.

00:55:57--> 00:56:43

This here is an extension of Allah's mercy. Allah is giving this to you as bonus your unit, you're not even asking for it. Why? Because that is Allah's mercy, Allah always gives you more there is no such thing as equal transaction with Allah, especially when it comes to his blessings and His mercy. It doesn't exist in terms of equal trade. Allah will always multiply and give you more and more and more in return. This here I find is so amazing. My goodness, if you ever want to have a about Allah's mercy and hope, take this one number 70 Because Allah is now saying, you know, all those years that you didn't pray, like those 20 years you you never prayed. And then all of a sudden,

00:56:43--> 00:57:24

you're like, you know, I gotta change my life and you start praying. Allah says, You know what, you make Toba. You renewed your intention, and you really worked on yourself. I'm so proud of you. Now, all those 20 years, I'm going to No, change them as though you prayed your whole life. You know, for a sister who didn't wear hijab for like 10 years of her life. And then she started to Allah will take all those 10 years now and make it as though she wore her hijab her whole life. Like what more of an incentive Do you want like, it's amazing that this aid is here. And it's the only one like it in the entire Quran. It's right here. There's this doesn't get repeated anywhere. Which is really

00:57:24--> 00:57:44

important because Allah is that indirectly tells us that the people who go through this three step process are very unique. They're really special to Allah. So one of the reasons why they get this reward of their evil deeds switch to good deeds is because this is Allah's

00:57:46--> 00:58:03

if there ever was a favorite group it would be this so it's like, it's like saying this is a lifesaver, which is not the right word I want to use but the battle Rahman remember how we started all this the elite the best of the best, this is what they get. Next question I have for you is this students?

00:58:04--> 00:58:10

Is this step by step? This three step process to Toba? Like this it sound easy.

00:58:14--> 00:58:20

Like you change your circumstance, renew your intention and do the work. Sound easy?

00:58:22--> 00:58:28

Yeah, no, no, it is easy. Don't fool yourself.

00:58:29--> 00:58:41

The biggest barrier between you and fulfilling the step by step towards an Toba that is accepted is you and shaitan

00:58:43--> 00:58:46

biggest barrier is you and shaitan

00:58:47--> 00:58:56

shaytaan a less says What can a shaytaan will insanitary for Shaitan to people he is SO DIVE extremely weak.

00:58:57--> 00:59:22

Remember I said the two fat has on a word means like, this is one 100% No doubt. Allah said shaitan is Dotty fat by a fen, the same to then 10 means on top describing how we excite lon is so Allah is not saying shaitan is weak. Allah is saying he's extremely weak next to you.

00:59:23--> 00:59:34

The only reason why shaitan can overcome someone is because they don't do this. They don't work on themselves. They don't maintain their image they don't do the work.

00:59:36--> 01:00:00

So if you do the work, which we're all doing, we're doing the fundamentals but then you do your extra deeds you do your charity you do you put forth your extra efforts, like you're so many things that you are doing, don't fool yourself and think that this is you know, this is gonna be so impossible. I've got to be like the next Abu Bakar or I shot a deal

01:00:00--> 01:00:10

Love I know like I've got to be them to get there No, this area is not to Abaco it's not to unload it's not to fault him. It's not it's to all of us to

01:00:11--> 01:00:32

it's for the new Muslim and Muslim it's for the person who never prayed for the last 50 years and decided I gotta change because they're they got sick or something triggered this change. It's for them that's what this is for. So, I asked you again is this three step process easy? Yes. That's by Allah's Mercy it's easy.

01:00:33--> 01:00:53

The challenge is you have got to commit to this a nobody can teach you that you that is a lesson you have to teach yourself. You are the teacher and the student to develop the discipline will let you okay you bet doula who say to him hey, listen, you know students I can go on and on for hours about the language in disabled because it's not our subject.

01:00:55--> 01:01:17

We'll just highlight just a couple of things. But the language here the grammar in it, the choice of wording, the structure, all of it has a meaning. Koran is so powerful because one vowel changes everything. The it's so remarkable one letter if this was a while instead of effect changes everything. But then the A concludes with this

01:01:21--> 01:01:31

what kind of love we'll have photo rocking it. Actually just one more thing when you see this word here has set you ever hear like we say, oh, that's that's you'll get a Hacienda for that? What does Hessonite mean?

01:01:32--> 01:01:35

Like a blessing, right? What if I say you'll get an agile?

01:01:37--> 01:01:52

What does that mean? Reward? Okay? What if I say you'll get, you'll get so much a thought lab from Allah. See how there's several words for rewards and blessings. Hassan it is plural for hacer una.

01:01:54--> 01:02:17

Allah says, I'm going to take all of your evil deeds, and I'm not going to just make them into good deeds. Not just going to make them into good, I'm going to turn them into Hesson it they're actually going to be deeds that will enhance your life. Like it'll actually make you a better person. How do sins do that?

01:02:18--> 01:02:37

Tell me, how do sins become like a Hassanal mindset for you? You all know the answer to this. Think about like the Tony Robbins of the world that you know spend time coaching people and life coaches telling them you know, take all of your weaknesses and think back, you went through that and today you're a stronger person.

01:02:38--> 01:02:44

Think back all those years when you didn't have hijab on and you look back and you're like, you know what?

01:02:45--> 01:03:21

Now because of those years and all of that I put like I went through not seeing and not studying and understanding the value. I'm glad Allah put me through the because of that, I can now appreciate what it is. I can now like taste and feel how important is Dean is for me. Back then. Maybe I used to drink alcohol I used to maybe just if it said it was pork or it was gelatin, I didn't care I bought it. And now when I became a doctor and I studied the effects of alcohol and the effects of pork and gelatin

01:03:22--> 01:03:41

you know now I can really really appreciate I'm going to be more committed now than ever. That's how you turn your sins into now now they become more than just like reversed deeds now they actually talk to you and encourage you to stay where you are.

01:03:42--> 01:03:45

It's remarkable how SONET is used here

01:03:46--> 01:03:59

right so there's a bit of life coaching happening here to take all the pain and turn it into something positive turn it into strength. What kind of level a photo Rahim Allah says I was always forgiving and merciful

01:04:00--> 01:04:06

students this whole area its conclusion is in past tense. Why?

01:04:08--> 01:04:21

Why does a less say I was always forgiving and mercy and not wallow who have futile Rahim I am forgiving and merciful. Why does Allah say I was always forgiving and merciful.

01:04:23--> 01:04:25

I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

01:04:26--> 01:04:27

Why past tense.

01:04:30--> 01:04:47

done the most certain, I think it's for me. If somebody says like, will you do this for yourself? And say it's done kind of thing. It's more for over promising. Okay. Okay. Good. Good way of looking at it. Yeah.

01:04:48--> 01:04:52

Maybe to remind you that even when you are in that state, you're still

01:04:54--> 01:04:55

it's amazing.

01:04:56--> 01:04:59

It was like I was always there, even when you were late.

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

Thinking that life back then I was still there. You could have always turned to me. I was always ready to forgive you and have mercy on you.

01:05:10--> 01:05:53

This ending here because of the past, it's it just, it's so remarkable. Like it changed has so many things in my own life. And when you know you, you sit there you look back and you're like, oh my god, man, Allah was always there. He was the one that was ignorant of that I was the one that shut those doors. When I was down and depressed. Allah was right there. When I was doing I was up to no good hellos, like, I know I can see and hear what you're doing. But remember, I'm always here to forgive you. Like, even after you mess up. When you go home. You're all drunk and messed up. You haven't prayed a single rocker in your life. I just want you to know I'm really here to forgive you.

01:05:53--> 01:06:32

It's amazing. It's so amazing. That's why when somebody loses hope in Allah, and his forgiveness and merciful, they have really reached an incredible low in their life. Like it's it's a very, very dark spiritual state to be when you disconnect your hope with Allah is a very, very sad and unfortunate place. You know, some of the Orlan that call that like spiritual suicide like you've just destroyed yourself. Because why? Even in your darkest moment, Allah is like I've never left you.

01:06:34--> 01:06:35

Who do you think woke you up today?

01:06:37--> 01:07:06

Who you think makes your lungs continue to breathe even though you've lost I'm still here. So if you start to connect everything that revolves in your existence, you immediately find Allah and His mercy. You immediately find it now here's one more thing see these two words of love for and Rahim you always see these two words together. Don't you will love will have photo Rahim. What's his love for domain?

01:07:07--> 01:07:15

So the structure of the word, it's not a failure or a hole for or fraud. It's for right plural,

01:07:17--> 01:07:18

all forgiving.

01:07:19--> 01:07:39

What this means is that Allah will always forgive you. As long as you do sincere repentance, Allah will always forgive. That's why it's so helpful. And then I'll see the 10 wean again we'll have full run. Like it's a done deal. You're gonna get forgiven, don't worry about it, it's gonna happen.

01:07:40--> 01:07:42

But then this happens.

01:07:44--> 01:07:49

Allah says Most Merciful. So Allah is always forgiving.

01:07:51--> 01:07:58

Does everybody have access to Allah's mercy? On the Day of Judgment? Will everybody get it?

01:08:00--> 01:08:02

Will everybody have Allah's mercy on the Day of Judgment?

01:08:03--> 01:08:03

No.

01:08:05--> 01:08:22

Right people will be split into two categories. The volley Moon was Saudi horn, wrongdoers and the righteous. So not everybody will have this. So the proper translation of this is always forgiving, exceptionally merciful. Okay.

01:08:24--> 01:08:27

Now, here's my question to you. When you

01:08:29--> 01:08:31

get a less forgiveness,

01:08:33--> 01:08:38

like you've got everything that's at your scale, you're forgiven by Allah, you're good. So what's Allah's Mercy then?

01:08:43--> 01:08:43

Was that

01:08:45--> 01:08:48

okay, sending you the agenda? What else?

01:08:50--> 01:08:52

What is His mercy if you already got this?

01:08:53--> 01:09:04

Isn't that what you're striving for? Just to have a less forgiveness? But we always say we want the lowest forgiveness and mercy. So you want His forgiveness. But what else on top of that, do you want?

01:09:06--> 01:09:43

Mercy is also this right. Isn't it true that mercy is like, let's say, you you dropped by my house and you're passing by, right? Well, yeah, I just thought I'd say Hello, how's it going? And I offer you some tea. You drink the tea? It okay. I gotta get going. Like, no, you're my house. You stay for dinner. You know, I've got a nice pot roast and blah, blah, blah. And I gave it to you and you're just like, on I want you to know, I didn't tie my visit. Like I just passed by. But I'm so like, I really appreciate what you just did. You didn't have to, and if no, I know I didn't have to. I want to

01:09:44--> 01:09:58

I want to do this for you. Is that me like being a little merciful to like, I'm giving you a little bit more than you need. That you asked for and that you want. Yeah. And do I do that out of my own like, kindness

01:09:59--> 01:10:00

like I'm doing

01:10:00--> 01:10:01

that out of my own choice, right?

01:10:03--> 01:10:06

This mercy that's all from Allah.

01:10:07--> 01:10:10

And the elements say that the mercy is Jenna.

01:10:12--> 01:10:16

The forgiveness does not automatically get you in Jenna.

01:10:17--> 01:10:33

And this came there evidence for that is the one Hadith that you all have heard, what did the Prophet alayhi salatu salam say, told his companions none of you will enter Jannah based on your deeds, your actions

01:10:34--> 01:10:43

and they and he said rather you will enter Jana based on Allah's mercy.

01:10:45--> 01:11:05

So, they heard that they say Hatta and they are also like not even you, you have also you do more leads than all of us combined. Nobody will be like you for the rest of this first of humanity until they have done nobody will will reach your level not even you says Hattah and not even me.

01:11:06--> 01:11:30

So from that hadith is where LMSW say, Oh, so you can be forgiven. But that does not mean Jenna is yours. Because Jenna now has to be okay. Allah's Mercy I'll give it to you. What's amazing is that all the A yet of Allah's forgiveness 99% of them what is he attached to it?

01:11:32--> 01:11:45

What does he attached to Mercy? So as if Allah is indirectly saying to us that look, as long as you strive for my forgiveness, you're in a good place don't worry.

01:11:46--> 01:11:54

MashAllah JetNet will be there like I've Don't worry, I got you. It's amazing. Last a for today.

01:11:55--> 01:12:12

Woman turbo army law salejaw But you know who you are to boil Allah Hema turbo. Remember the three types of Toba gave you okay go back to that the three types of total Tober will ever repeat repents and does good has truly turned to Allah properly.

01:12:14--> 01:12:18

Does good has truly turned to Allah properly.

01:12:19--> 01:12:20

Okay.

01:12:21--> 01:12:23

Woman turbowash Me la sala ha

01:12:25--> 01:12:26

what's missing in this area?

01:12:28--> 01:12:35

Whoever repents and does righteousness, or does good deeds, what's missing in comparison to the previous area? What's missing?

01:12:40--> 01:12:42

Yeah, this word remember?

01:12:43--> 01:12:48

I'm gonna believe right? It's missing here. Why?

01:12:50--> 01:12:57

Because it looks like the exact same as the way it started. But Eminem is missing belief.

01:12:58--> 01:13:05

Because if you graduate, you've developed some consistency with a a 70.

01:13:06--> 01:13:36

Then now your life is on cruise control, your Inaya 71. Like your iman is solidified. It's there. You're in a good place. Now to maintain that the number one way to maintain your faith and to give the strongest possibility that you will die with iman. You'll guarantee yourself you'll have Eman your whole life is you live a life of repentance

01:13:37--> 01:13:38

and good deeds.

01:13:40--> 01:13:49

You keep those two things linked together. Always in sha Allah Hotel. Your Eman will always be stable.

01:13:50--> 01:14:18

It'll always be stable is actually part of a hook by that I wrote that I'm going to do tomorrow about when life becomes from meaning less to meaningful because we don't talk about this really that you know how sometimes you'll progress in life. You've already gone for hygiene or Ramadan. You practice your deen but then for whatever reason as you get older your iman just

01:14:19--> 01:14:41

it just takes a dive. It happens to so many Muslims, real good people. But there's like an if it's not there, amen. It's like a part of their life a bad habit. It just got resurrected back into their life. Just this one bad habit. And there's one bad habit is destroying everything else

01:14:42--> 01:14:54

is very common. We take it for granted though. Because sometimes, very often those people that have gone and taken that spiritual dive.

01:14:55--> 01:14:59

It's usually very private. You won't see that dive at the message.

01:15:00--> 01:15:12

You won't see that dive at the get togethers at the fundraiser, you won't see that you won't even see that dive in the family get togethers. That dive only happens when they're alone.

01:15:13--> 01:15:17

And they only could happen one day with their just their immediate family.

01:15:18--> 01:15:58

Very common. And there are reasons why that happens. And one of the reasons in court and why that happens is a lack of maintenance of the of your faith. People just take it for granted. They think it's just going to be there as long as I do these things. I'm going to be my Eman is going to be on cruise control. And it's just you need more than just hygiene or mana to keep your Eman alive. There are people who will do Hajj and Amara and they will still go to the Hellfire when either below right because why? It'll just be a ritual they fulfilled. They didn't follow up with the lesson and the discipline that's acquired from going through that ritual. There are people who will pray five times

01:15:58--> 01:16:02

a day and they will still be thrown into the fire.

01:16:03--> 01:16:06

And Allah talked about them angels will come and say to them

01:16:07--> 01:16:10

what in the world happened to you? How did you end up here?

01:16:11--> 01:16:35

Mess Celica calm, fie supper, right? Like Wow, how'd you reach here? You were such a practicing person. The first thing that people have the fire this group that the angels taught first thing they say is Ha Lou LEM Nicole Minnelli mousseline, they said, we weren't amongst the people who are consistent, praying, people.

01:16:37--> 01:17:07

They didn't say listen to the worry. They don't say, Oh, we didn't pray. They said we were not like the people who consistently pray and benefit from those spray. That person is called a muscley is the person who prays and every time they pray, you see a little bit of that prayer after they pray. You see a little bit of that effects of Aloha rondom. You see the effects of Maghrib and Isha every prayer, you see it?

01:17:08--> 01:17:16

That person is able suddenly they say we weren't from that. We were just people that got some good cardiovascular exercise five times a day.

01:17:18--> 01:17:35

It was great because we were near a message. So we just prayed. We were part of the board. We were part of this. We volunteered so we were just there. They still end up in the fire. It's It's unreal. You can never twist and play around. When it comes to the dean. The dean is really really thorough.

01:17:36--> 01:18:06

You can't fool anybody when in this Dean. It exposes sincerity like none and like nothing else. Then Allah says so women turbo AMILO salejaw Now you're in a good place to even know who YouTube will Allah He metabo take the three Toba and then we're done. What was the first one I gave you? It was Tabgha en Toba. Okay. Tabgha and Tov is this stuff that Allah that's how we're together staford Allah, Allah Masha Tonry tobe is

01:18:08--> 01:18:10

I did one one thing let's say like

01:18:12--> 01:18:16

I don't know you lost your cool while you're driving and you gave somebody the finger.

01:18:17--> 01:18:17

Yeah.

01:18:19--> 01:18:39

You gave some of the things and then you just like oh my God, what did I just do stock for Allah. That's taupe. For every one deed one active Toba or forgiveness that's the bare minimum number two so Allah says so the evidence for that is a less said sorted author

01:18:40--> 01:19:06

of offering them What possibility tobe should either a pub is the thought of offering them we'll call be the tow. Allah forgive the one sin because it was met with one tobe one repentance. Understand. So for every one act of sin, one act of repentance meant that's the bare minimum taupe.

01:19:08--> 01:19:21

Now you add an additional layer. Number two was Toba, which is the most common word we use Toba? Yeah, you will Athena and no to boo Illa Allah He told but 10 Naso her.

01:19:22--> 01:19:32

Allah says people of iman make Toba to Allah. That is Toba Tenma surah. Not so hot means sincere Toba.

01:19:37--> 01:19:39

Let's just wait for this and then I'll give you metab and we're done.

01:20:00--> 01:20:00

hurt

01:20:28--> 01:20:30

all

01:20:37--> 01:20:37

Know

01:21:05--> 01:21:09

all

01:21:14--> 01:21:15

Hey y'all

01:21:25--> 01:21:26

how y'all

01:21:46--> 01:21:46

how are you?

01:22:45--> 01:22:48

All

01:22:55--> 01:23:44

so just the last minute that we have Toba tunnel Soha is what one sincere Toba. Some people just have that they get that one tub. So just remember the example of the person who smoked for 25 plus years, and he's just like I'm done. That's total but then also, the final Toba is the one that's mentioned in the a in front of you this word metab. It's right there, that you know who you are tubal Illallah he metabo and does good has truly turned to Allah properly. metabo is the Tober that where Allah takes your scale of bad deeds, and switches it over to good deeds. So you get everything from tobe Toba and then it becomes metabo because of the bonus, that bonus reward the bonus that

01:23:44--> 01:24:33

Allah gave you to switch the evil deeds to good. Now this becomes metabo. metabo is the strongest case of Toba to Allah on the day of judgment meaning like, you cannot present present a case of Toba to Allah beyond metabo. So if you'd get there, like Yala, I really wanted you to just erase my history and really just change my life permanently. And you really, really strive renewed your faith may proper Toba righteousness, all of that good stuff that we talked about. In sha Allah Huhtala you will be in a good place that we are all striving for metabo that's where we that's where we all want because nobody has a perfect life. So all the mistakes that we did do all the faults that we did

01:24:33--> 01:24:53

have to shortcomings we did have we went to Allah subhanaw taala to take all of that and reverse it into good deeds and make our scale of good deeds always and forever heavier and shallow. tharla So may Allah bless all of that for all of us.
