And we saw how little Kamala took the high road. Now look, that's just a man that's walking into your halaqa and insulting you. But let's not forget that, you know, I'm not gonna lie Malala
was tortured for a great portion of his adult life and tortured in ways that that you know, many of us have never even heard of right, he was, you know, somehow all of the skin was taken off of his back from the amount of floggings that he went through. They attempted to kill him in many different ways. And he got him a whole lot by the grace of Allah eventually came out of that, and the entire Muslim world sided with him against his oppressors. And you know, his last few years were peaceful and calm. Now what we see happening with him and him a whole lot after that, is that all of these people that used to torture him in prison, all of the guards all of the people that that cursed him
and so on so forth, they just constantly he used to come and seek His forgiveness and saw that the son of Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, He says that my father you know, forgave each and every single person who tortured him so how to love each and every single time a person came to him and said, I used to beat you and they would be just full of tears. Right? And please forgive me email. Kamala would forgive them anytime someone came and said, we backed by Did you email him Hola. would forgive them. sada said to his father, he said I asked my father, you know, what about those that died before they could seek your forgiveness? What about them? You know, at least these people have come
to you and sought your forgiveness. What do you have to say about those who have died and did not seek your forgiveness? Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah says, la caja Allah, Mejia Tuffy Helen and Barbara he he, he says that I have forgiven each and every single deceased person for the beatings that they used to inflict upon me so how to learn not for seeking forgiveness for no other reason.

He said Allah subhana wa tada said, and this is the surah or this is the ayah we're in today, sort of the Shura
verse 40, feminine alpha or agile who Allah, whoever forgives and pardons then his reward is upon Allah subhanaw taala. So he said that when I went when I came across this idea when I studied it, he said I came across a narration from your mom, Hassan vasila him hold on to Allah and listen to this narration. So the mom hasn't abasi narrates either karma yom will be Amity Jaffa till oma mokulua Avenida de la that when the day of judgment comes, all of the almost all of the nations will be on their knees in front of a loss of Hannah junta Allah.

Usually a person like that would be bitter. Look at that heart of gold that he has. He's telling his son, what you want on the Day of Judgment is that no one's going to be punished on your behalf. You don't want a loss of power to punish anyone on your behalf. And in fact, do you want to be one of those people that stands up when Allah subhanaw taala gives that special reward? We ask Allah to give us those big
hearts and to allow us to be able to forgive and pardon.
