Mr. Locarno, 100 I mean, what sort Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid wala early he was so happy as mine was sitting with a slim and cathedral cathedral Madras or Hanukkah Alma Anna Illa alumna in Antalya Hakima Bishop Lisa Marie, we are silly Omri, one of the minister any of Oh holy I'm about before I begin, I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he accepts our pm May Allah subhanaw taala accept our fasting may Allah subhana wa Tada accept or do as in the month of Ramadan Allahumma in Nicaragua went to Hebrew law for five one may Allah subhanaw taala forgive our sins, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to have mercy upon us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who

00:02:09 --> 00:02:13

enter into Jannah without any accountability Amuro but I mean

00:02:15 --> 00:02:55

it is Subhanallah is truly a blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala especially like in the month of Ramadan, when you see as many people in Fajr as you see in Juma and if you just imagine that if this was our routine, if this was the state of our iman throughout the entire year Wallahi great decisions, the health of Allah subhanho wa Taala will come upon the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability to keep the to keep the image up to keep the spirit of Ramadan, up in our lives, even after the month Ramadan. May Allah subhanaw taala give us ability to perform the perform our fasting, be dedicated, and our God in our

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

day was even after the month of Ramadan and mirabile Alameen

00:02:59 --> 00:03:10

I today want to share with you a passage from Surah Azuma, this is a very interesting, a very, a very well known passage that many of us have come have have heard about and so forth.

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

The most important thing is that as human beings we can never lose our hope and Allah subhanho wa Taala losing hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala is losing your connection and losing your iman and Allah subhanho wa taala. Imagine a person says, I am done with Allah now hold the biller, the Hello Apple tabula. I'm done with Allah. I made dua yet my doors are not accepted. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala for help yet my doors are not accepted. I don't see the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala coming and that's it. I don't want to ask any more because I keep on asking. And the more I ask, I feel like that my daughters are going to be accepted but no decision comes from Allah subhanho wa

00:03:55 --> 00:04:39

taala. Remember one thing brother and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala only leaves us when we leave Allah subhanaw taala when a person says I lose hope in Allah then that is when Allah subhanaw taala does not send his help anymore. To lose your hope in Allah is to lose your iman to lose your hope and Allah is to lose your connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala and if this connection is severed with Allah, He does not matter how much more connection we have in this dunya all connections in this dunya besides the connection of Allah subhanho wa Taala is useless, not completely useless, they can be beneficial, but as long as we have the connection of Allah subhanaw taala that is the

00:04:39 --> 00:04:59

most important connection. And even our best of the Allah Allah Allah says that in the time of Allah so Allah Allah He was sitting on people who they came to the Prophet alayhi salam. These were people who wouldn't have committed Zina. People who have committed murder, people who had drank in the past, they have committed such vile sins and why

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

Anyone else we always want a fresh new start. These people they came to us with also Allahu Allah He was send up and they said he got us to Allah your message is very beautiful. Your message is amazing. We don't have actually any doubt in your message. But there is one thing we have doubt in and Roswaal saw some will ask these people what do you have doubt in and they will say Ya rasool Allah, if we come into Islam, will Allah forgive over previous sins? Am I going to enter into Islam as like a newborn baby where my slate is absolutely clean? And this is why the Alma Mater Alma this harbor whether your locker room, they say that this is why this idea was revealed. Allah subhanho wa

00:05:44 --> 00:06:30

Taala says, pulling out a birdie and Medina Astra for Allah and foresee him led to me Rahmatullah in the law. How y'all Firuz Denuvo Jamia in the who who will have a photo Rahim Subhan Allah this amazing, beautiful idea that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that I'm here to give you hope. I'm the means of hope, have hope in me and I'll be there for you. And this tool, actually, if you study the entire Surah Zoomer from beginning to end, it is about how is a slave supposed to behave? And how are they supposed to express their Ibadah to Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why in the same surah Allah even mentions that what are those? There are different kinds of people that when they go

00:06:30 --> 00:07:09

through calamity, they say yeah, Allah Ya Allah, as soon as their calamity has been put to rest, then they forget about Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says that this is not a sign of a true believer, Allah in the same surah he talks about those people that if they're living in a land where they're not able to worship Allah freely, Allah says what are the law he wants to leave, go to another place where you're able to dedicate yourself to Allah subhanho wa taala. So in the same Surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about these people, that when they want to come to Allah, and they feel like they have committed so many sins, they feel like there is no hope for them. Allah

00:07:09 --> 00:07:51

says no, there is absolutely hope. And what's beautiful about this ayah is this. See Allah first of all starts off by saying when and as we all know that every time they will pull in the menu is mentioned in the Quran, it is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conveyed a very strong message, and not all the time. Not every single message sent by Allah conveyed that was conveyed to the to the maneuver conveyed to the the audience or the Sahaba or to us always start off with and you're Oliver they say that whenever pull has been mentioned, it means that it was a very important message that we have to pay close attention to. So first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Bucha yamasa

00:07:51 --> 00:08:38

Salam, yah, a baddie, oh my slaves, and there's a difference between my slaves as the bad or our beads, like Allah subhanho wa taala. In the Quran, he says, well, Mao rabuka bubala Milena, RB. Here RB is in reference to every single person, whether Muslim or non Muslim, Muslim men caffeine, it does not matter almost everyone is considered as an RB Allah says in the Quran, Allah does not do born against his arbete against anyone Allah had never come to school, even on the Day of Judgment, Allah will not come and tell everyone that whatever they get on the Day of Judgment is because they deserve it is because this is because of their actions. Allah will not accuse someone Allah will not

00:08:38 --> 00:09:20

put something on anyone that a person did not do. Allah subhanaw taala is not that time. In fact, even a hadith could say Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, everybody once again Allah is referring to anybody who is there a bad they're a bad is in reference to those people who believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. So he says, Yeah, everybody, all my slaves in the haram to Vilma, Allah Allah see what you're allowed to be in a Kumar Rahman finatus that I've made boom haram upon myself, and I've made a haram amongst you also do not come in and commit transgression against each other, do not commit bull against each other. Now, here's what's interesting to note. This entire idea is about

00:09:20 --> 00:09:27

those people who have transgressed they have transgressed Allah subhanaw taala could have referred to them as Yeah.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:40

Yeah, almost almost kneeboard those people who have committed sin, Allah Subhanallah clever use any other word. But this is so beautiful, you know why? Let me give you an example.

00:09:41 --> 00:09:59

You know, when imagine when, you know when the school calls home, okay, when the school calls home and says your child has been very naughty today. Your children's been has been misbehaving a lot today. The child knows and a lot of times usually, the father is the

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

disciplinarian, okay. The father is the deep disciplinarian. And always between the two parents. There's one who's soft, and there's one who's a little more harsh. When the child comes home, he knows very well, that if there's one person you want to stay clear of, is the father. Okay? Let me stay clear from the Father as much as as much as I can. The father comes in, he's going to make sure he stays in different rooms, the father goes into this room, he will come out, he will make sure he stays clear of him. Why? Because he knows what the Father is going to say to him. But much but the me's, you know, they will say different, different things. Now, what happens is this, imagine if a

00:10:40 --> 00:11:29

father sat down with a child, knowing very well and he says, I know what you did at school today. I got a call from school today. But then he says, My son, he addresses him as my son. What's the first thing that the son is going to think? What's the first thing the daughter is going to think that I've committed wrong? And yet my father is still treating me with so much love. He's treating me with so much mercy. This child is going to have this sort of guilty cautiousness. And he's going to make sure that he does not do this again in the future. He's going to feel like that he owes his father. Now Allah subhanaw taala. Here in this ayah he says, yeah, a body mean that no matter how

00:11:29 --> 00:12:13

much you have transgressed, you're still my slaves. You're still my my beautiful slaves, you are still my creation, and I still love you. I still have mercy upon you. And let this not be a means that you go away, but come close to me, that come close to me. This is Allah, expressing his love how much he loves us that no matter how much we have done, come here, my son come here. In the case of Allah, my slave, come here. Don't run away from me. You may feel guilty, you may feel like you want to run away from me, but come close to me. And then Allah says Allah Dena Asafa Allah unfussy Him, those who have transgressed the word is set off in the Arabic language actually implies that

00:12:13 --> 00:12:53

when you do something beyond the appropriate limit, like for example, drinking water is okay is good. But when you drink too much water, that can be that you're putting your health in jeopardy. That in itself is called slough. When you spend money, there's a there's a mound and a threshold where you spend money, that when you go overboard, and you spend that is something that is absolutely unnecessary, than that is called itself. So this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, what happens in Islam itself is not healthy. I just said even water, something that's healthy for us. We drink too much of it, it can become unhealthy for us. What happens is that when we commit

00:12:53 --> 00:13:36

sins, is not that we have to commit sins, we want to commit sins. It is not a necessity of life is something that we want to do. We do it by our own choosing. And what we don't realize is that it is absolutely harmful for us. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not only say those people who have transgressed, he says those people who have transgressed against themselves because Allah wants us to understand that when we commit wrong, we are harming only ourselves. Allah says in the Quran in Allaha na Manasa che when I can the nurse and for some yoga the moon, you are the one who comes boom against yourself. When you and I when we do wrong, we're only hurting ourselves when we do good

00:13:36 --> 00:14:22

we're benefiting ourselves. If I praise a lot, I'm only benefiting myself will Allah He Allah does not see if we pray harmony. Allah does not need our Salah Allah does not need anything from us. It is we who need ALLAH SubhanA wa to Allah. So So for Allah unfussy him then Allah says, na takana to me Rahmatullah Do not despair from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the La Jolla, Luba Jamia, Allah is the One who will forgive all your sins, you know, subhanAllah when it comes to our relationship with other human beings, imagine if you went and or imagine someone hurt you, someone hurt you in a way that is hard for you to forgive them. Even if you have patched up things, even if

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

you are passionate things and you crossed paths, you will say Islam on eco Maalik Muslim and then you know how you're doing good and hamdullah you walk away because you know that there is a history and that history keeps on you know, it stays there in our minds. When you and I when we have some some problems with someone else. You know, a lot of times that that relationship has been so much severed, they just no matter how much what you do and how much you try, that relationship is never going to go back to the way it is. But when it comes to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah does not say that you know what you did once I forgive you, you did it twice. I give you another chance. I

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00

give you

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

You're third chance, Allah subhanaw taala keeps on telling us that as long as you can keep on committing sin, you keep on coming back to me and I will forgive your sin. In fact, about a year on Saudi Arabia, Allah Quran he says, at the time of his death, he said that I heard something from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that if there is a hole that does not commit sin, Allah would rather see a hole and a nation that commits sin, and they ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for forgiveness, we need to always go back to Allah subhanho wa taala. No matter how much we have done, no matter how much we feel like that we have done wrong we may have the self guilty consciousness,

00:15:40 --> 00:16:17

yet we keep on asking ALLAH SubhanA what to Allah. Now see, here's where it is. When people are far from Allah. Allah is the food. He is a Rahim as Allah mentions here in the who who would have a full Rahim, ALLAH is forgiving, Allah is merciful. But at the same time, Allah then has an expectation from us. If I'm nice to you, like for example, go back to the example I gave a father and a son. The father calls his son and says, You know what, my son better don't worry about it. You know, I let it go this time. The son says, You know what, this is easy. I can keep on doing this and my father is going to keep on showing love. After a while even the Father is gonna say You know what, enough is

00:16:17 --> 00:16:54

enough. Allah subhanaw taala has the same concept. Allah first of all provides hope. Allah first of all provides forgiveness, but when a person keeps on transgressing, then eventually they're above Allah subhanho wa Taala does come and see what what happens is that when it comes to our understanding, there's two different extremes. The one extreme is, as we talked to our children, you don't pray you're gonna go to *, okay. Everything long that you do, you're gonna go to *, like our children never grew up with the concept of Jana. Like they don't even know what Jana is. That is one extreme. The other extreme is do whatever you want to do. And Allah subhanaw taala has been

00:16:54 --> 00:17:36

always forgive you. But we always have to take the middle approach. We have to always take the middle approach. What is the middle approach Allah matches up next, Allah says, what I need to either become eight and turn in repentance, and in obedience with true faith to Allah subhanho wa taala. And Eboo means that you not only just come to Allah, but you come to Allah with your heart, you bring your heart to Allah, the O Allah, I have done wrong. Now I'm willing to change myself what I need in Arabic, while asleep and submit yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala the now my wills or subjects are subjected to the will of Allah subhanho wa taala. Now I need to bring a change in my

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

life. And this is what Ramadan is all about. It's about bringing the change in our life. So now we put we turn our hearts to Allah and then we submit ourselves to Allah subhana wa to Allah. And Allah says that make sure you do this, I forgive you. I'm willing to let everything go, you turn your heart to me, you you submit yourself to me. Now if you don't do this, despite the fact that I've already shown you mercy. Allah then says do this when properly and yet to Formula either from Allah come soon do this before the Adapt comes. And then you are there is no one who can help you at that time. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what type of asset on Zillow may not become men

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

properly I

00:18:21 --> 00:19:02

want to monitor Sharon and follow that which is the best that has come from Allah subhanho wa taala. In other words, the Quran, apply the teachings of the Quran in your life. Before that time comes. Before that time comes I want you to remember the word before keep that in mind. Before the fact before the time comes that Allah sends a torment or punishment upon you suddenly, one time later, Sharon and you are not even perceiving it, you do not even expect it. Now this is what happens in this dunya. But what happens in the ark era, Allah next in the next week, he talks about three different groups or three different situations that will occur on the Day of Judgment. Now Allah

00:19:02 --> 00:19:46

subhanaw taala say that make sure you repent to Allah, make sure you turn your heart to Allah, make sure you submit to Allah before the day comes and Taboola enough soon. Yeah, hi slaughter, I forgot to feed them Billa that leaves oppression to say, Alas, my grief that I was an unfaithful to Allah. I did not do what Allah wanted me to do. And not only that, we're in punto Lemina circuit in and I was amongst those who made a mockery of the religion. Allah subhana saying that the very first group of people on the Day of Judgment is those people who will have immense amount of grief, immense amount of grief, and they will say yeah, hast water they will say, Oh, I wish I can just go back. I

00:19:46 --> 00:19:59

can just go back and do this and do that. And I would have given certified that day. I would have done pm that day. I would have got you know, give him something about that day. And today I would have been benefited from that. Yeah. and wallah he had that day. It

00:20:00 --> 00:20:40

Doesn't matter how much hassle or how much grief and how much sorrow we have, it will not benefit us. So these are the very first group of people and not only that, but Allah also mentions, Allah also mentions, we're in Punta missa let me let me know exactly. I was amongst those who made a mockery. You know, especially I want the youth to listen very carefully. A lot of times we don't want a mockery is a mockery does not mean that you make fun of something, the fact that you devalue something, or you completely put it aside like you have absolutely no regard for it. That is also a circuiting. When you know, you hear I certainly times when you sit down, I'm in I've even heard

00:20:40 --> 00:21:10

myself a lot of times you saying that? Islam? Who cares? You know what, it's fine if you don't do it, if you do it, don't worry about it. This is making a mockery of the religion. On that day those who made a mockery of religion, those who treat religion this way, they will have hustled on the Day of Judgment. So that is the very first group, the second group that will come on the Day of Judgment. There will be people who will not blame themselves. Allah says uncoupled Akula no Anwar, Hi Danny, listen to me, I'm

00:21:11 --> 00:21:47

not gonna blame themselves they're gonna blame Allah had ALLAH given me he dire than I would have been a great person. But Allah did not give me he Daya Allah wrote in his in his father, that I will be a wicked person. So hence I was a wicked person. First of all, we don't even know what's in between and the father of Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah has put the FDR in our hands. This is why the human being is going to be judged on the day of judgment, because Allah gave us free will. And he also gave us obligations. We do not know what is in our cupboard and you have people who go they commit haram and they say you know what, this is what it was written to my other high this is I

00:21:47 --> 00:22:25

follow my other No, and then they blame Allah they will blame Allah on the day of judgment that had ALLAH given me Daya, I would have been a great person but Allah did not give me he Daya. That's a second group of people. The third group of people oh the hula Hina never know under the current rotten for Hakuna Mia Marcin. Or they should say when they see the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala had I had another chance to return to this world, I would have done I would I would have been amongst those who have or who apply their son in their life. Meaning that on the day it does mean people will come they will see the other and so as such that the sooner that is recited every fourth

00:22:25 --> 00:23:07

Friday morning here, there is an idea in there where Allah says Robina Abba sadhana was the Mirena for Gianna nama salejaw Oh, Lord, now we have your theme. We heard about it, that was a major theme. Now we came in this akhira I know your pain, which establishes happily in this you know now we have absolutely no doubt in the fact we have seen it. We have heard it just return us from this return us in this world. And Allah subhana wa Tada. So now you have three groups of people. The first group who are they again, once again, those who have hacerle. The second group are those who will blame Allah for their problems and their failures. And the third group will be those who will have regret

00:23:07 --> 00:23:13

and they will ask Allah to be returned back and to all three groups, all three groups, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, but

00:23:15 --> 00:23:16

absolutely not.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:22

Whatever your requests are, they're not going to be built for the

00:23:23 --> 00:24:05

team. Yes, Verily, my dad came to you, my dad's for Cadabra Toby ha. For Can you deny them, you don't have to literally deny them. The fact that you put them aside, you have no regard for them. You had a choice you can do right or wrong, you chose the wrong that is the fact that you denied, you deny the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then not only that, but you were walking on this earth was tech Barbata. And you were prideful, you felt like that I love Allah subhanho wa Taala will never come. But here we are. And here we see the other of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is this all starts off from where the Allah subhanaw taala tells us that turn to Allah subhanho wa

00:24:05 --> 00:24:41

Taala And subhanAllah This is why even you know when we talk to our own children, punishment should come later on. Just like Allah first of all gives us hope. And then he talks about punishment. Likewise, first of all, we need to always give hope to our children. first talk about the football and first talk about the virtues first tell our children that if you do this, what Allah will give you what Allah will give you. And once again, you know when it comes to parents, you know always you know your children, what they what they are, if you sit there you tell your children, that my son, if you Say Subhan Allah, You Allah will give you a tree. So he's gonna say so what? Okay, I don't

00:24:41 --> 00:25:00

want to treat, okay, I don't want to treat, but if you explain to them that whatever you want, whatever you want, okay, Allah will give you that. What do you want? He's gonna say I want this. I want that. I want this. I want that first thing on the list is going to be a phone. Okay? That's the first thing they

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

Want, Allah will give you everything my son whatever you want Allah will give it to you today we have even when we talk about dinar to our children, we don't even know how to describe Jana. We explain Jana and the kisses I don't know what that is. I don't want that. And that's not interesting. But we have to make Jana like you know, talk about Janna from the Quran the way Allah talks about it, provide hope to our children. And then after that, even if there are consequences that let them become some consequences, but listen, see what Allah subhanaw taala has done even with us with the people who are new caliph, Allah subhanaw taala first provides hope. And then he

00:25:36 --> 00:26:14

provides he talks about his other. I ask Allah subhana wa Tala that in these remaining days, let's not, let's not lose focus on the fact that last night probably was at the other, were all at the time of stroke, we're all going to run to the window and see if the sun has raised or not, and so forth. But let us let's not worry about that if it is an hamdulillah but yet we still have two or three more days, we still have two or three more days of Ramadan, let's utilize them property will lie till the last second till the Muslim have to the Maghrib where shall well begins? Keep on being you know, concentrate and focus on your Ibadat focus on your macfeather and asking Allah subhanaw

00:26:14 --> 00:26:44

taala for mercy. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala that first of all, he gives us the ability to make Toba and it's far from our sins. May Allah subhanho wa Taala shower His mercy upon us, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he does not make us from any of these three groups that Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned here. In fact, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us amongst those who are next to and close to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and amongst those who enter into Jannah without any accountability I mean noble Allah mean Docomo la Hey, Santa Monica Monica La Jolla little character

00:27:08 --> 00:27:09

00:27:12 --> 00:27:15
