The shaytaan has made an oath he has taken an oath with Allah subhanho wa taala. And think about this, you know, this is something that the OMA have mentioned that when you and I, when we made an oath to Allah subhanho wa taala, that we will recognize Allah as our Rob, then we got to stick to that commitment. In fact, shaytaan also made a commitment shaytaan also made a commitment and shape on so far, he has fulfilled his commitment, and he will continue to fulfill his commitment to the day of judgment. And that commitment is the only in homage to Marion, I'm going to deceive mankind, because he thinks and as he believes that our demonic Islam was his cause of being dismissed from
Jana, the only way he can get revenge with other Malik Islam is to deceive the children of our demonic phenom. So this is why he's after all of us. So last time, we talked about a method that shaitana uses to deceive us today I want to talk about another method that shaytani uses to deceive us and that is that he inclines us and he tries to deviate us by making us commit major sins. See, first of all, the question is what is the definition of a major sin? Because many of us are confused that what is the difference between a minor sin and a major sin? The answer to that question is that a major sin is that sin were in there is some mention of it in the Quran, or in the Sunnah of
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and there is a serious punishment or warning associated with that sin. For example, we know that the person has talked about what are the consequences and the punishment of that person who commit Zina. Therefore, Zina is a is a major sin, the person has talked about the consequences of leaving salad that's considered considered as a major sin. For those people who go to the restroom. And they don't take care. They don't clean up. They don't they leave urine on their clothes. The prophets I send them he says is 10 Zero meal bowl for in
a cupboard the men who don't stay away from urine, because majority of the times the punishment in the grave happens because people are not protecting themselves or they're not keeping themselves clean. So anything any kind of sin, we're in there isn't a cop or there is a punishment associated with that, this makes it a major sin and anything that does not have a punishment associated with it, it is therefore a minor sin. Now, now that we have understood this, the next thing is this.
The Allamah have also mentioned that why do we call ourselves even Adam, like Allah subhanho wa Taala many times when he refers to us, he says, you know, he refers to us. Yep. And Adam, you have an Adam, like he says in the Hadith, Adam, in the commander, I will tell me what are Joe Tunney refer to Lackawanna Valley, the old son of Adam, as long as you make dua to me, and you call out to me, and you turn to Me, I will forgive you and in doing so, I will not care a bit. So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala saying and Honey, let's see. So he refers to us even Adam, the question is that why doesn't Allah subhanho wa Taala refer to us as Yeah, you are in sun, because the sun there Alma
have written interestingly, that Adam Ali Hassan was the very first person to commit wrong, okay, that was the very first person to commit wrong, he was also the very first person to repent to Allah, and he was the very first person to be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa taala. And so when you and I, when we call ourselves even Adam, we remind ourselves that just like our father, he made a mistake, okay. And he was deceived by shaytaan, very briefly, likewise, you and I, as human beings, we can, we will always be chip on will always try to deceive us, but it is our job and we learn from our father or the mother, you said, that we will always go back to Allah, we will always ask Allah
subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness, and inshallah Allah will forgive us. Another thing about major sins is this, I want to give you the example of a person who commits theft, you know, a person who commits theft, they're very reluctant. In the very beginning, when they commit theft, they're very careful, they think twice about it before they commit theft, they'll make sure that the Leave No traces behind. But when a person becomes really fluent at it, he always commits theft, then he will commit theft at any time of the day, because now he has a confidence. A person who commits major sins is no different. Before he committed major sin, He will think, should I do it or not? But once
he does it, or he, she does it and they become so used to it, then they began to commit their major sin at any time of the day. That's the very first example that some of them might have given with a person who commits major sins and a thief. Another one is
that there is no guilt. The guilt goes away from the heart of a person who commits major sins. Think about this, a person who commits haram, you have that guilt we all because Allah has created fitrah within all of us, we have that inner guilt within us. But then when you commit that haram over and over again, and a person goes so deep and coming that haram, and they realize that they cannot get out of the Haram, they began to justify their own sins. Allah subhanaw taala has talked about this, even in Surah Hadith also. So the point I'm trying to make is that when a person commits major sins is not that you commit a major sin once and you're done. You're gonna always go back to it unless we
repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala Lastly, is that there are three things that happen when we commit major sins. The very first thing is that the heart, this heart that we have, as opposed some has mentioned, Allah in the field Jessa de mudra either Salo heights, hello, hello Jessa do Kulu were you the first that first that just said to Kulu Allah wa he'll call if the heart is good, everything else is good, if the heart is corrupt, everything else is corrupt. So what we what happens is that when a person commits major sins, this heart becomes disconnected from Allah subhanho wa taala. Okay, it becomes disconnect from Allah subhanaw taala. You know, in the Quran, Allah subhana wa
Taala gives us the example of a tree if you remember chef Yasser also gave a horrible about that tree along turkey for the rub Allah Who method and Kelly met and prohibited. Khashoggi out in PA Heba a slew her Sabbath, its roots are firm into the ground, while federal half is sama and his tree I mean the branches and the leaves are spread high into the atmosphere. One thing that the ALMA have mentioned is the Think about that tree, as long as if there is a fruit on that tree. As long as that fruit is attached, that tree is going to grow grow in sweetness is going to change colors and is going to mature as a fruit. But think about a fruit that's supposed to grow on a tree. If it becomes
disconnected. If it becomes disconnected from the tree and it falls on the ground. People kick it people will walk over it will that fruit grow in sweetness? Will it change colors, colors will blossom, it will not. Likewise, as long as we are connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala we will grow in the sweetness of iman our iman will grow our connection to Allah will grow. But the minute you and I we commit major sins, we become disconnected from that tree. And so then that Eman goes, that sweetness of Amanda was growing in a heart, it goes away. The second the second thing that happens is that we began to lose the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and what happens is that there was a
famous saying that
Dawson ILA has a very beautiful saying in Arabic, Dawson ILAHA will cater to the hero boohoo that, you want to express your love for Allah subhanho wa Taala but you commit sins. in Malmo, Heba. Lehmann, you Hebrew motto says a beautiful saying that for every person who claims that they love, they have to wait you have to follow that person. If we claim to love Allah subhanho wa taala, then we have to do exactly that which Allah subhanaw taala has told us to do, but the minute you and I we commit major sins, then this heart becomes blackened, as there's a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that when a person commits sins, there's a black dot that appears on their heart.
And then what happens is that a person again commits a sin, another black dot appears in the on their heart, and he keeps on committing sins till the heart becomes completely black. And, and what happens is, and when black and means it becomes dark. There is no light of iman, there's only the darkness of Crawford in the heart. And then what happens is that then when the Ayatollah recited like the sign of iman is when the IATA recited what Gita from the heart is affected by it. But when the heart becomes dark inside, then any ayat can be recited. People will change their lives because of one I have the Quran here the entire Quran can be recited to a person and will have no effect on
the person's heart. So this the second thing that happens is that we lose our connection with Allah and our heart becomes on dark and black and on the inside. The third thing that happens is that Allah subhanho wa Taala he cuts away our provisions. There's a hadith and even a manager. We're in the province of Salam he mentioned part of a longer Hadith, that one of the things that happens to our provisions and when our when we lose Baraka in our provisions is that one of the key causes is that we are committing sins, and we are disobeying Allah subhanho wa taala. So, sometimes we need to always go back and we need to look at you know, sometimes we'll always ask why
Is there is this problem in my life? Why is there this problem in my life and so forth? And look, there could be either it's a testament lesson behind whatever Allah. But this is where we have to go back when we always have to look, did I commit a sin or not? This is why I've talked about this before so many times, you know, doing this Maha Sabha doing the self accountability. This is something that is so important in our life everyday, taking some time out and doing our own accountability, analyzing our day, what things do we do, what things do we do right and wrong, we have to analyze that. And then when we look back, we may see that there are some sins that we
committed. And because of that, Allah subhanho wa Taala he's bringing, he's taking away the baraka from our risk, or he's cutting short our lives. So these are the things that happen when it comes to major sins. And once again, as I started off by saying that this is one of the things that Shavon makes us do to get us away from Allah subhanho wa Taala the more we are further from Allah, who are we closer to?
We are closer to Shavon so in order to become if we want to get far from Shaytaan then we're going to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is how it works. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give all of us ability to practice one has been sending her May Allah fill our hearts with the light of iman, the noodle Imani? May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to stay away from the from the traps of shaytaan and bring us closer to himself. I mean, does that come Allah Subhana Allah home of your 100 connection to Allah into this stuff? We're going to be late. Does that mean love hate Islam? Are they going to labor cattle?
