00:01:02--> 00:01:43

Messenger Mohammed Salah lahardee who was Salaam who was sent as a mercy to mankind, a messenger of guidance. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to send his peace and blessings upon him. The prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him and those that follow in his busted path until the day of judgment. And we asked a lot to make us amongst them love them I mean, their brothers and sisters It's hot. May Allah subhana wa tada reward you for coming out in this weather to perform Salatu Juma May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow every moment that you feel of the heat of this world to relieve you of the heat of the Hereafter, whether it is the

00:01:43--> 00:02:09

standing of the Day of Judgment, or May Allah subhana wa tada protect us from what comes after a long I mean, I'm going to keep this very short in sha Allah to Allah and cover only the second half of the statements from urban Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah that I mentioned last week, he said them and Allah Mattie motilal called from the signs of a dead hearts, Adam will choose near Allah masataka meaning

00:02:10--> 00:02:36

that a person does not feel sadness over the good things that they have missed out on. And we talked about that last week, that a living part is one that finds a way to please Allah subhana wa sallam no matter what. And a dead heart is one that feels no sadness when the opportunities to please Allah subhanaw taala are taken away from it. But the second part of that statement could never mean

00:02:37--> 00:03:20

to home in would you deserve that and to not feel regret over the sins that you have committed in the past? Now this is a very important and you know, it's not just an important concept but one that is tricky to navigate. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says clear about the alladhina Estrada and foresee him Lanza cannot own the rock Mattila in de la hora de novo Jamia Rahim Allah says Oh say oh my servants who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair from the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah forgives all sins. And Verily Allah Subhana Allah is the most forgiving and the Most Merciful. And you can go out and sort of denisa and sort of zoom out all throughout the Quran,

00:03:20--> 00:04:05

where Allah subhanaw taala assures the believers that Allah subhanho wa Taala with the presence of it has to not use hiddenness see at the bad deeds go, they are wiped out and they are replaced with a good deed. So what is the benefit of this? And is there truth to it? There's a difference between remembering your mistakes, not forgetting your mistakes in a way that you learn from them. A difference between that and finding despair and your previous mistakes to where you're paralyzed in your present and your future. There's a difference between being paralyzed by your past and using your past to make a better future. There's a difference between finding despair and your sense and

00:04:05--> 00:04:17

being humbled by your sense, and I want to talk about that in Charlottetown for a moment, think about the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Do you think that holiday alone time and ever forgot?

00:04:18--> 00:04:32

Do you think that with 1000 battles he never regretted and looked back on fighting against the profits I summon? We talked about generosity a lot of time. A couple of weeks ago, when he came to the Prophet sly somebody held his hand back, he said Jada sutala

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

am I going to be forgiven for everything I've done before all those years, that I oppose you all the pain I caused you yada so am I forgiven? And we talked about Islam and Hitler and the prophets? I'm told them, Islam and Hinduism do away with everything that came before, but when I'm going to also the alone time who was dying, he remembered he recalled, he said, My life is in three phases. The first phase of the prophets lie sometimes call one

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

I oppose him and I know had I died then I would have been amongst the people of Ghana. And then when I accepted Islam and I served along the prophets I saw them and I know had I died then I would have been from the dwellers of gender. And now after the Prophet slicin has passed away, it's a mixed bag and I don't know where I stand with Allah subhana wa Tada. And so I'm depending on his mercy, Ahmed have been added as he's walking a whole lot to Allah, who performed all sorts of reforms in his life, all sorts of reforms as the halifa in two years accomplished what most would not accomplish in 200 years, the oma has not seen a man like him not in terms of virtue, but the uniqueness of Ahmet

00:05:38--> 00:06:14

analogizes him on what he achieved walking a whole lot to add a little deal on whom between the age of 38 and 40, not including his seven years as the governor of Medina, and all that he did there from 25 to 32. And all that have been agonizing is when someone would praise Him, you know what he would say? He would remember a person that he wronged and he would say, Okay, well, babe, what about Whoa, babe, the man that I wronged he'd remember someone he wronged years ago. Now, did that make ometer bin Abdulaziz say so forget about tm and then forget about reforming the Hinata I am doomed because of who babe?

00:06:15--> 00:06:56

Or did it humble him to do more? So that Allah subhanaw taala would not hold him accounts and at the best of his deeds would be the last of them. He didn't let it debilitate them. He was activated by remembering that now we are not Khalid or arm or Omar, are these people may Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them. But we all have things that we have done in the past. That sometimes when we think about them, we can feel regrets. It is good to feel regrets. You know why? Number one, it keeps you working and striving for Allah subhanho wa Taala number two, where the alpha where the alpha Who?

00:06:57--> 00:07:36

Allahu Allah can forgive and show mercy Pardon? Don't you want Allah subhanaw taala to forgive you. When you look at someone that is struggling the way that you want struggled, when you look at someone that's at a part of their journey, that you know that you also were once that you will have mercy in your heart towards them, and hope for them, you won't write them off, you won't write them off. Because you say you know I used to be Who am I look down on that person. A loss of kind of hope to Allah for gave me an open the door for me. It may be that Allah subhanaw taala used me as a guidance towards that person. And that would be a way of accessing mercy for that person. And so you

00:07:36--> 00:08:21

remember your sins, to humble yourself before Allah and humble yourself with the creation of a law so that you can bring them to Allah subhanho wa Taala but you don't despair. And the beauty of the believer is that at the end of his life, may Allah subhanaw taala grant us all a good ending alone. I mean, at that point, what does he depend on? At that point? Yeah, Allah, I took a little bit of your mercy and compared it to all of my sins, and found that just a little bit of your LACMA is enough to cover all of my sense. At that point, yeah, Allah. I remembered my sins, I tried to change. This is the body of my work, and now I'm trusting in you for your forgiveness and your

00:08:21--> 00:08:58

mercy. May Allah subhanho Tada allow us to achieve his infinite mercy. May Allah subhana wa Tada, forgive us and pardon us. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to always find the doors of good and to always refrain from the doors of evil. And may Allah subhanaw taala make the best of our deeds of the last of them. May Allah subhanaw taala not leave us to ourselves alone.
