00:00:00--> 00:00:06

anatomy, whatever you want normal, I mean, what have you got to them what's appealing Ramaswamy was a little darker because

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

he was lucky, he was a little fuzzier. So a lot of learning is the 27th ninth and I pray that Allah subhanaw taala accepts

00:00:19--> 00:00:24

this beautiful night a very bad day for each and every single one of us. And somehow I was just reflecting before I start

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

on how amazing it is that the last pass that allowed us to see this night to see these last two nights to see this autobahn. But just to remind everyone, a lot of people wanted to make it this far and did not make it to see this night, there are a lot of blessing people that passed away before this night. And just seeing the pictures of the sunrise in different parts of the world. And, you know, knowing the father knowing the virtue of the points out at night in particular, without getting into detail on the feet of the gorilla, not on the on the difference of opinion.

00:00:58--> 00:01:15

It's It's such a blessing to be here. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala accept this from us all that if this is the nightmare last pentatonic accepted, almost all and if it is not the nightmare a lot accepted from us regardless on another one of these nights. So just a reminder to myself, and you do not waste time tonight.

00:01:16--> 00:02:01

And I hope you don't find lecture waste of time. But don't waste time tonight. Please try your best to really exert yourself in Slava in salon and slough it on in southern salon and graph all of these beautiful attributes in Charlottetown. Without wasting time, so make sure that when you're not saying something beneficial, you're listening to something beneficial, alternate between your your reading, but just stay engaged as much as you can this night in Charlottetown. And, of course, all of the Knights that come to follow. So the lecture that we will or the portion of the surah that we will get to tonight is where last Sanatana says when the Vina, they have their own amount of logic

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

11 Alpha one if you don't understand that the hormone level in love and half, one is noon, one and

00:02:11--> 00:02:50

the bars level 11pm, or we'll get to that later, actually, we'll stick to 68 verse 68, the last kind of statuses and those who do not invoke a god along with a law, nor do they take a life which Allah has forbidden except injustice, nor did they commit Zina adultery, and whoever does so shall meet its penalty. Now, this might seem like from a testing perspective, one of those is that you just kind of look over because you say, Oh, well, that's not me. And I've never I don't I don't call upon anyone decide unless I don't commit murder, I don't. So I'm good, right, I can escape this. As I said, you know, I'm one of the episodes on for I'm 30 to 30.

00:02:52--> 00:03:32

A lot would not put anything in beforehand, except that it's a benefit to everyone that is reading it. And so if there is something that you are guilty of you are attentive to it, if there is something that you are not guilty of, then you are also attentive to it, because you asked a lot for protection, and you seek refuge in Him. And you pay attention to the lessons learned on how people fell into those places. So don't just gloss over this and then go to the other parts of the slot. And there's actually something very profound about this being included in a bag or whatnot. Because when you're talking about a bottle of man, you're talking about a bunch of dudes, what is it about

00:03:32--> 00:04:17

the rock? None do they do you know that they walk with humility, they have incredible, impeccable character with people that have no character with them whatsoever, they prey PM, late into the night, they spend with moderation, they're not stingy, nor they extravagance, but they spend wisely. And so it's a lot of what they actually do, and not much of what they avoid. But that's actually a very profound point, when you think about the way that will last as outputs this smack in the center of the description of the Bible. And some of the scholars say that just the fact that there's a portion that's inserted in the middle, right here about what rebels of man don't do is to indicate

00:04:17--> 00:04:28

that these are people that do not live a life of contradiction. These are people that do not live a life of contradiction. Sometimes you find very, you know, seemingly very righteous

00:04:30--> 00:04:30

people.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

And

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

because you have these seemingly righteous people that pray that they carry themselves with such grace and such, you know, such beauty in the public space. Sometimes they're deceived, and sometimes they're deceiving and the prophets of the lies that I'm talking about the hypocrites and he said that one of the things about the hypocrites is that they pray, they fast. They do all of these actions that allow them to be looked at in a certain way. But either

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

Hello, how to not when they are alone with the, with the forbidden things of the prohibited things of a wasp kind of what's out and then they consume those things. So they look to you know, they consume these things in a very blatant way as if there's no shame with these things that the prophet SAW a lot harder to sell himself

00:05:22--> 00:05:29

either to study for SNAP mash it if you have no shame, then do as you will, I'm getting messages that my mic is a bit off. So I'm going to just the sound like

00:05:35--> 00:05:38

okay, this minute control, this is a little bit better.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

I'll try it at this level.

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

I just lowered it.

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

As long as it's not Darth Vader that I'm good.

00:05:48--> 00:05:49

But, um, so it's better now.

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

Okay, it's not better.

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

You try this again.

00:06:09--> 00:06:09

Okay.

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

We'll try this again. Hope it's not an echo. If it is, then I might just switch mics.

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

The Voice clear now.

00:06:32--> 00:06:32

Okay.

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

Y'all give me a moment. I'm gonna switch my mic or

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

laptop might

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

be better.

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

You guys can hear me. I'm good enough.

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

All right.

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

You hear me now? Is it good?

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

I see green bars on my end.

00:08:23--> 00:08:24

Okay.

00:08:25--> 00:09:05

All right. inshallah, I'm gonna just try it this way. So in any case, as I was saying, the summary of all of this, that there in MSA, the powerful intervention of this is to say that these are people that do not live a life of contradiction, because the hypocrites have done while the love of Thailand where the Prophet sly someone was talking about from an African who is talking about the hypocrites. And so that's that system, that is the law. Tell us about the Messenger of Allah. And so then for the merits of the profits license, they are people who, when they are alone with the hat, and when they are alone with the prohibitions of a loss of habitat, and then they consume those

00:09:05--> 00:09:12

prohibitions. So anyway, I'm going to get back to the sunshine law. Let's go into the details of this when the veena now he has the rule, not not a law either.

00:09:14--> 00:09:59

Those who do not call upon a lord, besides the Los Angeles Times are speaking to a very specific portion or elements of Tokyo, the very elements of monotheism. Why because this is a Mexican society, where they associate partners with a loss of data in different ways. Okay, so to call upon a loss of hundreds out of the profits, all of it with some sense that you're asked to enter either supplication is worship, your app is about them. And at the end of the soul on the very last day of fullness, that will be commodity loaded your article, say that my board would not take note of you had it not been for your draft, and you're out here as an Ibis will be a long time.

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

You're out here means a God as a whole. So the word your app covers so much more than supplication. But supplication is at the core of your app, a last countdown and also, by choosing these sins, in particular, to say that the Bible of none are not guilty of these sins. The last kind of Todd is pointing to something that's very important, which is that the believer will fall into minor sins, but they won't insist upon them. The believer will fall into minor sins, but they won't insist upon them, because could look on top of all of you are people who make mistakes, you're all going to have all types of sins in your life, you're all going to make these mistakes. But the best of you are

00:10:44--> 00:11:26

those who are pants. So when I was kind of Thomas's, and that evening, yesterday, when I come back, he was the Rakesh in the lemon was, as I says, Those who avoid the major sins of the shameless, except for a number except for the slips except for the minor sins that we commit throughout the day. So the believer above none are capable of slip ups. They're capable of minor sins, but they don't insist on those minor sins. They are not capable of committing major sins and living a life of contradiction of those major sins, nor do they publicize their sins, which is one of the greatest plays of insults. Okay, one of the greatest plays of insult towards a loss of hundreds out of that

00:11:26--> 00:12:03

you disobeyed him and a lot of covers you as you disobey Him, and then you publicize that sin and then you boast about Besson, so it's not even, it's not publicizing and that you're seeking help from someone it is publicizing it as a means of pride as a means of boastfulness that arises that covers a person, and they still go out there, and they expose their sense. So during my comments on this, and they say that the sins that are mentioned here are civic murder and adultery. And I know some of you might just tune out at this point and say, Well, I'm gonna die, don't commit ship, I don't commit murder, I don't commit adultery. So just hold on and sell us out until we get to the

00:12:03--> 00:12:13

end of this portion. Ship murder and adultery are the worst of the sins in the sight of a loss of time. And this is according to IDC number 11.

00:12:15--> 00:12:59

He says that I asked the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what are the worst of sins, He says number one, it is to set up someone as equal and ranked with a love who created you. So is to associate a partner with a Los Angeles ad. And to set them up as an equal the worst type of setting to give someone else that position of being your Creator, when it was only God who created you. And then the second one to kill your own child for fear of sustenance out of fear of poverty. Okay, so the worst type of murder, such a filthy type of murder, because of the implications of it is that you kill an innocent child you fill your own child out of fear of out of fear of poverty. So somehow there's a

00:12:59--> 00:13:43

lack of Ruffner, there is a lack of connection to a loss of data. There's so much there's a lack of understanding where this comes from. There's so much that comes from this. And then the third one is to commit adultery to commit Zina with the spouse of your neighbor, or the spouse of your neighbor. So these are those three sins to their worst outcome. Okay, those three sins, their worst outcome allies, as I've mentioned, ship to its worst outcome. Allah mentions murder to its worst outcome. Ally mentions adultery to its worst outcome, right to commit adultery with the spouse of your neighbor. xenos bad enough, your neighbor has rights upon you. And so to go to that extent is, is of

00:13:43--> 00:14:09

the worst sins in the sight of a loss of habitat. The scholars also say that Allah subhanaw taala is calling is speaking to the conscience, the conscience of those people in Russia, to the pagans, because these are all things that though they were guilty of, they knew were blameworthy. Okay, they knew were not traits that were Noble. It's very important. You know, if you read enough, I think a good history of this sense of humor for

00:14:10--> 00:14:46

the history of Mecca, the history of the people of Mecca and how they actually looked at their idols, they didn't perceive their idols as having much weight. They didn't actually care much about their idols, their idols were products, their idols were their inventory when things actually went wrong. Or when they were actually in genuine fear. they invoke the loss of kind of what they call the phone a lot alone. When abraha invaded Mexico, or he did not invoke other than Allah. They didn't invoke the idols to save them from abroad or save the capital from Allah. they invoke the loss of Hannah hotel, and that's why last Posada says what

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

does that

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

mean that these people, they are in the ocean and they are covered by the darkness of the night and the dark waves like to crash into the boat into the ship.

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

Do they call upon they call upon a loss and kind of watch out if they know their idols have no weight. And so they would switch out their idols as they please. They would say, you know, I don't like the way this idol looks anymore. So let me bring a new one. They would accessorize them as they please they would buy and sell and trade their dogs. So it was kind of time is calling attention to the fact that when you are in trouble, who do you call upon? Who do you naturally call upon? Even those pagan Arabs that were fighting the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for his monotheism. when things were difficult, they call upon Allah they called upon God, and they knew Xena

00:15:38--> 00:16:22

was not Noble. They knew that Xena adultery was far from nobility, though they were guilty of it. So you have the story of the idols whose images had been placed at safa and marwah, which were a man and a woman that committed Zina inside the cabinet and returns into into stone by Los Altos punishments. And so they disgraced these two, they mock them, they knew that Xena was a low retreat, even though they were guilty of it, they were regularly guilty of it right there was there are all types of Xena type agreements that the Arabs had, you know, you know, you talked about early, the early practice of, of exchanging spouses exchanging wives and, and a person even, you know,

00:16:22--> 00:17:03

committing incest and a person committing sin up with their own children, their own mothers their own. These are things that existed that were prevalent in their society, but they knew they were lonely, and they knew that they had no benefit to them as individuals or society. And they knew that murder was wrong, even as they committed acts of murder, and they killed people for petty reasons, they knew that these were not noble trade. So Allah subhanaw taala calls the disbelievers by saying the bathroom whatnot are far from these things. They don't live lives of contradiction. And this is the impact this is the societal impact of a people that honor God in their lives. This is what

00:17:03--> 00:17:38

happens when you have a society of a battle of man. There is a lot of society, there's lots of society, there's mercy to society, people don't kill in the name of their idols people do not, do not do not commit Zina Do not you know, and then the process victimize either the more vulnerable of the two committees in and any children that might be born out of zinna. People don't, you know, end up ushering in these horrible things into society. And you know, one of the things that you can point to is that these three things, ship murder, and Xena

00:17:39--> 00:18:25

literally line up as the opposites to the first three of the major Mufasa study on the first three objectives of Islamic law. Number one is to do the preservation of religion, then the preservation of life, then the preservation of honor. And so when people betray these three things in their lives, then the societal impact is one in which there is no, there's cruelty, there is no there's disgrace. And that disgrace is brought both upon the one who is calling and the one who is being called upon both the farm The one who was murdering and the one who was being murdered, the one who is committing Zina, and those that would that would end up no bearing the impact or the consequences

00:18:25--> 00:19:11

of that sin, the loss of innocence in society, the loss of honor in society, loss of innocence, the loss of lineage and society, the loss of protection, the loss of safety, the loss of spirituality, loss of harmony. So lots of hands on is saying, you know, or, you know, the goal is not to just have a few individuals that shine, the goal is to have societies that function with these noble ideals. And that line up with the major Mufasa, which are the preservation of religion, life and honor of the scholars also mentioned here that these three things are all signs of the Day of Judgment, from the from, from the, from the biggest of the minor signs of the Day of Judgment. Okay, of course, you

00:19:11--> 00:19:55

have the major signs of the Day of Judgment, which are when the honest as the Day of Judgment is literally at its onset, then you have things that are signs of the ends of time. And I'm actually going to add something to this, which is that it's not just sin, sin and murder that are prevalent in the end of times, but it's mindless ship and mindless dinner and mindless murder. What does that mean? The profits lie somebody speaks about societies descending into these three things. Once again, the Messenger of Allah Islam to Islam talks about an element of, of normalization and an elements of desensitization, an element of just mindlessness, mindlessness, how the profits licensed

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

said that the hour would not come until you saw the

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

the web

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

Then of dose a tribe and early pagan tribes, literally committing their, you know, their acts of [???] around the cat, but

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

you know, which was a,

00:20:12--> 00:20:34

you know, promiscuous type of dance around the cat with the profits license of the hour would not come until you found people committing shifts literally around the counter in the same way that you know the arrows at the time we're committing shift. It's mindless, right? It's mindless, and so shift becomes a party. Right? It really becomes a party. So there's a regular

00:20:36--> 00:21:19

or regular disregard of God, irregular disregard of anything that has to do with the divine open mockery of Allah open mockery of anything that has to do with the divine, nothing is sacred anymore, and because nothing is sacred anymore, then everything just becomes part of material pursuits. And part of venti, right, so spirituality becomes part of them. And so people worship, not from a place of actual actual purpose, right and finding purpose in that worship. But it's, it's part of, you know, it's part of vanity. And so there's mine. Listen, the for profit slice on is talking about towards the end of time, right? And then there is mindless murder. So how are we see this everywhere

00:21:19--> 00:22:00

now, everywhere enough? The profits license that there would come a time where neither the profit more than a fool the one who is killing or the one who is being killed knows why the murder is happening. The person who's killing really doesn't know why they're murdering. And the person who's being murdered has no idea why they're being murdered. But murder becomes so mindless, right? senseless killings, how many mass shootings Do you see all the time? Right, and just senseless killing, whether that's at the hands of oppressive governments, okay, and, you know, foreign policy, including our own right, just just dirty wars, or that's the individual emptiness that does lead to

00:22:00--> 00:22:37

mindless, senseless killing, that destroys societies the profits license of the Holocaust, right? It's just murder everywhere, murder everywhere. And then there's mindless Zina where people commit adultery, and they don't even care anymore. And the one who witnesses it says it's not even a big deal anymore. It's called the prophets license, and that it would come a time where people would not feel ashamed to just commit adultery in the middle of the streets. And the most righteous person at the time would simply say, Would you mind moving to the corner? Or could you move out of the way, as you commit yourself, that's the level of mindless Xena, that the that the people committing

00:22:37--> 00:23:12

adultery, have no care whatsoever as to who's watching them, and those that are witnessing it regularly become desensitized to it. So how I really, really want you to think about this. I keep telling myself, I'm gonna write something about this, but it's been a little hectic these last few days. But you know, some some of you are already planning to get back to your favorite HBO series and your favorite Netflix series and your favorite Hulu series and your favorite whatever series and watch this, this and that, after all, but I'm not saying that to dismiss you. Because I know that the way that we rationalize it is we'll alternate away when certain things come up. Or you know, I

00:23:12--> 00:23:23

just won't watch that part. But think about the corruption of the soul and the heart in the process of that, that you just become okay with this stuff. Right? So I guess just another thing, another, you know, it's just an idea.

00:23:24--> 00:23:45

So mine was in a becomes a feature of society where people just become desensitized to all sorts of things. And it's okay to watch these things, and okay to consume these things. And that's not good for the heart. It's not good for the soul. And it can have devastating consequences on us. So what are those devastating consequences?

00:23:46--> 00:24:28

That philosophy kind of data talks to us about? And as I said, you're thinking maybe at this point, I've never killed anybody under that I've never committed sin 100 I've never committed civic, right? These things don't happen anymore. But here's the thing. No one, you know, no one says as a child, that I'm going to grow up and be a murderer. One day, I'm going to kill someone one day. How many people that have taken the life of someone else unjustly? Never thought that most people never thought that they would ever be in that situation? Right? But the fitna increase and people found themselves in that situation. How many people you know thought I will never commit Zina? I will

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

never commit adultery. That's crazy. Right? That's, that's for those those people, those other people, right, this is beneath me. Then what ended up happening? Got a little too close with your co workers. Right. And the process of infidelity unfolded, where you developed an emotional attachment to one of your colleagues. And then you know, the late night conversations and then the messages got a little bit more flirtatious and then you rationalize it in your head and say, hey, let's let's uh, let's figure out let's do the secret and calf on the phone just means

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

You know, no one else has to know. And you just took it into this weird path. You rationalized. Right? And no one would no one ever thought no one thinks that I'm going to do something this dumb before they get into it, but you get caught. And then it's a process of posing.

00:25:16--> 00:25:56

And you end up there. The Prophet slicin said that when it comes to faith, you know, there's a reason why we asked the loss of hundreds Allah to maintain faith in us to maintain faith in us that you know, like to not let our mill see let's not let our tragedies in life be in our faith, that our faith is not disrupted by a world that's becoming less and less predictable and more and more crazy. All of the ideas about the profit from the prophets I send them about holding on to not on the on the money but beyond the Turner of hearts, keep my heart firm on your path. What is the prophets lay some say what happened at the end of times, mindless shift, what is mindless should look like a

00:25:56--> 00:26:32

pocket size, some sort of person goes to sleep a believer goes to sleep a believer a moment, well used to be her capital then wakes up with complete disbelief. And then something happens during the day they read something, they watch something, whatever it is, and know I'm a believer again, and I will actually know not now. Right, so the jump between faith and disbelief, and that's a dangerous place for a person to actually be. But it happens to people and it catches people by surprise. So asking Allah subhanaw taala, not to let you lose faith, that Allah has subtle faith in your heart, that Allah keep your heart firm, that will not keep your stuffs that fast. But a lot of keep your

00:26:32--> 00:26:40

thoughts pure, that a lot of times I keep you on the straight path, the sickness we have or what, hold me to it, clean me to it.

00:26:42--> 00:27:24

Until I need to with the state of Allah, keep me clung to the system. Keep me clung to the space, until like meet you with it make the best of my deeds, the last of them asking a lot for his lengthy time asking a lot for a good ending. Because people don't know how they get pulled into these things. They don't know how they get pulled into these things. But it happens and it becomes a process. And so you know, the scholars of sarouk, they say that each one of these three centers has a pathway. And while that pathway might differ from person to person that has a pathway and so the pathway to ship is emptiness, emptiness, a person losing the sweetness of faith, losing the

00:27:24--> 00:27:28

sweetness of faith, and when they lose the sweetness of faith, then it becomes

00:27:29--> 00:28:06

the jiofi aka decompilers, local silver becomes like a worn out garment. And so it becomes old and it becomes it's not, it's not doing anything for you anymore. So you're not renewing your faith regularly. And so a person has emptiness and then they they seek to fill that emptiness with other than Allah subhanaw taala. And then a contradiction happens where you know, whether it's an unhealthy dependence, or it's just outright blatant [???]ted on with something other than a loss of habitat, I have to expel one of those two things from my heart and I choose to expel a loss of habitat in a wall protect yourself, right. So the point is, is that it's emptiness, emptiness is the

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

pathway there.

00:28:08--> 00:28:49

When it comes to murder, many of their intimate states anger, how many people commit murder in the heat of a moment, right domestic violence crimes, Panama, may Allah protect us protect our marriages and protect our families and protect our communities. How many people in the spur of a moment in the heat of an argument kill the most beloved person in the world to them, right for violent wisdom and on that violence unlocks the potential of a greater violence or, you know, in the midst of a moment do something crazy and actually kill someone hurt someone and then what happens? I've got to hide that and then they become murderers. Because Satan has unlocked a sin. But the person doesn't learn

00:28:49--> 00:29:32

to control their temper, they could find themselves in a situation where they become abusive, right, let's go murder to the side. How many people think that one day I might be someone that would lay my hand on my spouse, you know, or hit my children violently, you know, like, like, actually inflict pain on my loved ones. Nobody thinks that when they're young, and most people when things are good things that could never happen to me, but somehow they snap. And so the mechanisms of a bother was none of keeping ourselves guarded, keeping ourselves guarded protect us from going down that dark pathway. And then when it comes to Xena lust, lust, emptiness, seeking validation, right? It starts

00:29:32--> 00:30:00

off with just learning and you don't even recognize it until it's too late. Right and it just, you're letting the sparks fly and the fire it just catches on fire at some point. Right And unless as I says, you know, what I talked about was in I don't even come close to it. Right don't even come close your put a barrier between you and it's when you start to see some of those signs back off. Don't put yourself in a compromising situation, because you're going to end up falling

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

All right. So there are pathways to these major sins, that a bank or whatnot actively seek protection from a loss of data from they don't belittle these things. Remember, this is going to be a while I'm just saying that I mean, the fact

00:30:15--> 00:30:58

that no one fears if no one is feel safe from hypocrisy, except for hypocrites will not fall in that moment. And when only a believer fears hypocrisy. And so when you start, when you stop fearing the potential of sins, even major sins, you can find yourself in a bad place, right? Where you start to belittle them and say that could never be me. And so a lot never will be you install it never will be. But, but, but protection, but barriers between you and those sins, and develop the measures of contemplation and reflection and systems of accountability external as well, that can catch you if you start going down a dark path. If you start going down a dark path that can pull you back,

00:30:59--> 00:31:36

whether that's internal, again, or external that can say, Wait, hold on, and at some point, the external will fail and the internal has to pull. Right, the internal has to fall because you can get around the external usually, but the internal has to say, wait a minute, I don't like the person I'm becoming. I don't like, you know, the lack of quality in my draft. I don't like the lack of quality of my faith. I don't like this disconnect that I feel from God. I don't like the emptiness though. I don't like the anger issues that I have. I don't like the way I snap at people don't like the way that I somehow feel the need that I always feel like I've got to flirt with you know, everyone from

00:31:36--> 00:32:02

a grocery store clerk to, you know, a co worker to whatever it is some random person on the internet, I don't like what I'm becoming I don't like that I'm seeking validation from these places. By the way, please forgive me. If any of this is hitting too close it, the last thing I want is for someone to make your app against me on the 27th might have a little daughter to feel like I'm getting at you. This is a reminder to me first, a person has to be willing to remake themselves into a valuable.

00:32:03--> 00:32:49

And in order to do that, you've got to have deep honest conversations with yourself. Like I, I think this is going down the wrong path. And who were the people that feared major sins, books, the setup the pious predecessors, the people that were least likely to commit them. So you find a narration, who will be alongside who the person is very the most of it from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he is seeking refuge in a lot from a study of thought was enough from becoming a thief or becoming an adulterer. It's like why do you What? Why would you ask him? What is there to protect them from ever becoming a thief or an adulterer? How could you know how could that ever happen? Our

00:32:49--> 00:32:49

mobile data?

00:32:50--> 00:33:26

Bubble may well be a lot of time, what did he remind his students that he said, Look, at least thought he had it made to shape on thought he paints these fluffy Pete's with his faith and with his position, and look what happened to him. And that's why when the setup would see someone fall, they would have mocked the person that fell, the first thing they would say is less than one and a half years, they will protect us. And what protects us from falling in a similar way, they wouldn't mock their brother or their sister when they saw them fall, they would save me a lot protect us because I might fall the way my brother fell, I might fall the way my sister fell. So I need to take lesson

00:33:26--> 00:33:46

and he loved the way that they felt and protect myself, the son of also had a different understanding of what major sins were. And this will be a lot of time home, as he was passing away. So this is a discussion between someone you know, two generations of the senate because the Senate for the pious predecessors, the first three generations.

00:33:48--> 00:34:08

And this is a discussion between us who's on the line blood Companion of the Prophet sly seven, and the targeting, which are the second generation of Muslims, a distinguished generation with their good deeds, the son of the tambourine distinguish themselves with their good deeds, they took it to the next level, with their good deeds.

00:34:09--> 00:34:17

And honestly, a lot of time he said to them, in the comunitat, meluna, at nasm, here, here, here

00:34:20--> 00:34:59

are unicam that you do these things that are smaller in your site. I'm going to show that here. And he says that we the companions of the Prophet sly, some of them couldn't argue half million Tibet, we used to consider these things from Tibet, but putting them in a moving part we used to consider them from the destructive flaws, the most destructive of the major sense that you Oh, sorry, you might excel in doing more good deeds might read more for and then the companions of the Prophet so you might pray more than the companions of the Prophet slicin might be distinguishing yourself with your charity, you might be taking it to the next level.

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

When it comes to your good deeds, but we the companions of the Prophet slice Allah, we used to see the sins that you see as more insignificant than a hair.

00:35:10--> 00:35:24

Putting on the nerves you had, I feel so the nice little is on them all the parts we consider these are the major sins. But there was a tough one there was there was a greater reference. And so the way that they defined major sense was different.

00:35:25--> 00:35:59

Because everything is relative, right? You know, we talked about Xena, and what's considered Xena Now, obviously, there's the technical, the major Xena, but the way that our eyes and our hearts have just become so used to consuming certain things, what's become foul language? what's become lovely, right? what's become? What are these things that we've normalized in our lives to consume and to witness without really feeling any disturbance anymore in the soul, that was our protectors. So what's the practical takeaway from this, the more a person becomes from a valuable,

00:36:00--> 00:36:42

the more you have the tuner to become such a demo piano, the more they develop a connection with a loss of cones out of binary, the more they become obsessed with gaining the pleasure of a loss of Hannah Montana, the process holding themselves to higher standards that other people do not necessarily hold themselves to. And they don't be little things they don't be little since the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said yakko mahakala beware of delivering sins, because it's like a person that keeps on you know, it's like a bunch of people gathered around the fire and each one of them adds a small branch. And then eventually, the fire becomes so big that it consumes you.

00:36:42--> 00:37:27

Remember, this article came out, it talks about the the delivering of sins, the effect of limiting the sins on the heart and stuff, you know, it's like taking a stone and dropping a drip of water on the same part of the stone over and over and over and over again, until it destroys it altogether, completely ruins it. So be careful, don't be literal sense. And the greatest way that we belittle sins is that we accept them as normal parts of our lives. Whether those are the sins of the tongue, or the sins of of our actions, the sins of the eyes, the sins of the body, the sins of the feets the sins of the ears, the sins of of what you know, all of these different things, the sense of interest

00:37:27--> 00:38:04

rate efficiencies and a God just accept them as parts of our lives. This is just me. Alright, so I just commit this sin and I do the sentence. Now, it's not that big of a deal. And even our boss told me a long time he narrated last year of Islam, what I can do tonight is that there is no such thing as a small sin, when you insist upon it, when you insist upon it, and there is no such thing as a major sin when you seek forgiveness from it. There is no such thing as a small sin, when you insist upon it. And there is no such thing as a major sin when you seek forgiveness from why

00:38:05--> 00:38:08

a loss of time in which Allah says could you do that enough?

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

That's not to

00:38:12--> 00:38:21

say oh my servants s falafel. Remember, we talked about the slot. The slot means you went beyond the limits. You went beyond the limits us law for Allah.

00:38:23--> 00:38:41

sake Oh my servants who wouldn't be on the limits with themselves, whether that was major as major as killing 100 people or as minor as backbiting one person, as major as killing 100 people or as minor as backbiting one person that's up not only

00:38:42--> 00:39:25

did not disappear from the mercy of a lot because in a lot of fields you know that Jamia? Allah forgives all sins, Allah forgives all sins, the companions of the Prophet slice of them were made up of some people that were adulterous murderers, murderers, alcoholics before, before it's not, and some of them struggled, even within Islam, to reach the position that they reached. This is not a dean of perfect people. This is a dean of imperfect people that strive for perfection and believe that they have a merciful Lord that will forgive them so long as they make their best efforts. So it doesn't matter how bad what you've done in the past is you can put it behind you because you have a

00:39:25--> 00:39:59

Lord that will forgive all of it. And Allah tells you don't look back, focus on now your new life, you turn the page, don't look back. But if you have that nasty.on every day of every day of your life on it, you know that same.on your page every day, you just turn the next the next day of your life today is the 27th today's report next day 28 not saying nasty, Doc is obnoxious, Li they're on your record. Right? Then that speaks to a lack of commitment on your part. And that's major, that's major. So a lot can can can sound the whole book

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

quickly and remove all of the past sins. Don't even think about it anymore. Don't worry about it seek forgiveness from Allah. Sincerely in the law. Yes for the little bit Jamia, Allah forgives all of it in the whole world of affordable housing, not because you deserve to be forgiven, but because Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:40:18--> 00:40:32

When you keep on insisting on the same doc over and over and over again, that in and of itself is major, and it has the potential to open up far worse doors, far worse doors. It's not like you know, one of my, one of my teachers,

00:40:33--> 00:40:35

comma, she sent me below what

00:40:36--> 00:40:56

he said, You know that what minor sins do to the heart, what minor sins do to the heart is so detrimental, that it could literally lead to a complete loss of faith and a person is not paying attention? Why? Because to insist upon minor sins, you don't feel a sense of urgency to come back to a loss.

00:40:58--> 00:41:05

You know, major sin, when a person is in the midst of committing a major sin, like they have the potential to have a major aha moment, wake up calmly.

00:41:06--> 00:41:45

But when it comes to the minor sense, and they keep on committing the minor sins over and over and over again, the heart is hardening. The heart is it's not just the sin, but the degree of the sin. And what that becomes in the sight of the last concept of the heart is hardening. And then you know, a person doesn't realize like, wait a minute, what's left in here? What's left in here? What if I tarnished in here, so be careful, be careful with those minor sense because they can really, really destroy the heart, they can eat away, and they can become major sins, just by virtue of how often they are performed, without conscious anymore. So think about those minor sins and what they become

00:41:45--> 00:42:03

a gateway to. But Allah subhanaw taala says, you know, in the line of Virginia, Allah says he forgives all sins, all sins. And so to that brother or sister that has felt unworthy of a loss of hundreds island that feels like you've done way too much.

00:42:04--> 00:42:14

You have not done way too much. Because Allah Mercy is more than whatever it is that you have. Allows Mercy is more than what you have done. I'm going to read it.

00:42:16--> 00:42:16

And

00:42:17--> 00:42:30

well, Lucky No matter how much the line about how much I read this ad, every time I read it, something else, just one word, folks often, so I want you to pay close attention in this scenario. It'll be a long time.

00:42:31--> 00:43:21

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in Allah, Allah for Jonas, Allah hath Nina tala. I read it really slow. In English and an Arabic Verily Allah created mercy in Allahu Allah for Allah. Why am I come from Allah created mercy. And the day Allah created the day Allah created this quality of mercy that is so necessary that's so beautiful. It's so overwhelming. The day Allah created this mercy, he immediately turned it into 100 bucks, immediately turned it into 100 part select created mercy, there was no such thing as lucky enough, before, a lot creative was the originator of all things, even the qualities that we have amongst ourselves. He created LACMA and then put it into 100

00:43:21--> 00:44:15

buckets, 100 categories, so the profits licenses, the M sec are in the hole to sand which is a not enough, and then a lot of saved for himself, or he pulled back 99 of those 100 forms of Washington, of 100 forms of mercy. The US Senate the healthy quinolone calling him What matter wahida and then Allah subhanaw taala sent to all of his creation, one part of mercy, one part of His mercy, okay. Hopefully he couldn't meet him last night. And so all of the mercy, that about the rough man are able to express all of the mercy between animals, all of the mercy between the believers, all of the mercy between human beings, all of the mercy that has shown the mercy of a mother to her child, the

00:44:15--> 00:44:49

mercy of a prophet to his people, all of that mercy comes from that one bucket of mercy, that one category of mercy that Allah subhanaw taala revealed a sent down to us, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is this is the effect of the so what does it mean that a lot has saved 99 mercies for the Day of Judgment for the hero. What what? What does it mean that allows saving, the profit slice of them said below your level of capital between the lawyer and the law, human or whatnot. Lovely gentlemen.

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

Stuff the disbeliever wants to know

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

of all of the mercy which is in the hands of a loss of Hannah Montana, he would never lose hope of entering

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

He would never lose hope of entering paradise. If the disbeliever was to know what those 99 forms of mercy are like when a law has withheld what is what is two times the mercy that we know of look like? What is three times mercy? Look, what is 100 times that mercy look like with a loss.

00:45:18--> 00:45:35

So the prophets license that even if the disbeliever which know what those what those 99 parts of that mercy was, he would not lose hope in paradise. But then the prophets lie some of them said, Well, yeah, we couldn't live your entire life in another num, yes.

00:45:37--> 00:45:45

But if the believer was to know of all of the punishment, which is present with a loss of habitat, he would not consider himself safe from the fun.

00:45:46--> 00:46:36

This is the balance of hope and fear. Allah has his mercy has overcome his wrath, His mercy has overcome his wrath, we have only experienced one bit of His mercy, every act of mercy that takes place either through a Bible, whatnot or otherwise, this world is all from one part of the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. And if we were to know of that mercy from Allah subhanaw taala, we would not take advantage of it, nor would we allow ourselves, nor do we allow ourselves to ever despair of a loss of contact, even the most wicked person would not despair of a loss of data. And so the next I just, I'll close with this. Last, as I said, your wife novela, we all know reality Wi Fi, was, as I

00:46:36--> 00:46:44

says that his torment, the person who insists on these major sins, will be doubled on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide in its humiliation.

00:46:46--> 00:46:57

A lot does not multiply or compound punishment for people beyond what they deserve. And the lives of their thoughts about the punishment on the Day of Judgment. lost contact us does that and we baffle

00:46:58--> 00:47:39

that it's an exact punishment, you will never be punished for a sin beyond what it deserves. But when it comes to good deeds, was paradise as desert, alpha and he said that he lost to Allah awards it or compensates that good deed, alpha and he sada in ways that we don't deserve. So love multiplies the acceptance of those good deeds. So what does it mean you want a Florida, that his format shall be doubled for him on the Day of Resurrection, there in that state means two things number one, the sins that are between you and Allah, and the sins that are between you and the people, the sins that are between you and Allah, and the sins that are between you and the people.

00:47:40--> 00:48:21

But for Betty, no matter what mathematical setup, you say, live tidings to the one who dies, and their sins die with them. You don't leave behind something harmful, that hurts people after you die. You don't take behind you don't take with you to the grave a sin or produce a sin or inspire a harm that continues after your death. You don't do things to people that cause them to make your act against you after you die. You don't cause harm that outlives you. Okay. So glad tidings to the one who dies in their sins die with them. They're just between them in a loss because you don't you don't commit Roman don't commit wrongdoing or pressure towards anyone else. Why? Because when it

00:48:21--> 00:48:58

comes to forgiveness, there are two things required for forgiveness from the people. And one thing that a lot of comes with a lot. It's mouthfeel is forgiveness in the way of the knowledge with the people, it's another way to massage. It is that you return the rights to the best of your ability and that they forgive you seek their forgiveness. And you know, sometimes by the way, you try to right or wrong, that you've done with someone and they don't want to forgive you but do your best. That's what the last kind of what's at his mercy comes in right that you did your best you tried to other animals. And it didn't work out but you tried your best you gave it your absolute best shot.

00:48:58--> 00:49:00

There's only one thing with all the awesome

00:49:01--> 00:49:39

stuff, you'll learn how to avoid a stuff that a lot harder to love them in their castle and pretty much a hibbott Africa. Although you are forgiving, you love to forgive so forgiving. So with the sins between you and Allah subhanaw taala. It's easy in that Allah as low as L is so merciful, and he loves to show you mercy, you just have to ask for it. You just have to ask for it. Whereas the sins with people, it's a lot more difficult. And we often let those things go. And so the person that's been described here, a person who commits major sins is someone who has sins that are both in the category of the sins between them in a lot alone, and the sins that are between them and the

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

people. Some of the scholars also say you love Love, love just refers to the intensifying of the punishment because in that other half kind of alaba in the hersa department. So what we talked about in the previous lecture, that how is ever present and it's ever consuming. It's a it's a horrible place and so it's intense.

00:50:00--> 00:50:23

And yes, lotd mohana that a person would abide there in, in humiliation, a loss of habitat to protect this. And so, this is the opposite of a person who is honored in the sight of a loss and this is a person humiliates themselves, humiliates themselves. And your brothers and sisters, you know, I want to really emphasize this point, inshallah time.

00:50:25--> 00:50:28

Whatever your sin is between you and Allah,

00:50:29--> 00:51:08

don't just put it on Allah, to forgive you, but it on yourself to actually put barriers between you and that sin. It is not right that you turn to a loss of hundreds on these nights and say, along with literally a lot of harmony, and you're not willing to do anything for the sake of a loss, or make any meaningful change in your life. It's not right to call upon a wall with these things, without showing a desire to be forgiven, and shown a desire to be to have mercy shown to you by doing the absolute best that you can. And so I'm gonna, you know, I don't know who needs to hear this. But if you're going down that path of infidelity, cut it off, cut off that relationship, even

00:51:08--> 00:51:44

if it's not quite there yet, cut it off from now, but a complete barrier, erase that person from your contacts, and walk away from right and then get back to your marriage. If you're getting to a point where your anger or your grudge is building to where you know, things are getting violent between you and someone else needs to handle that now, don't let it get to the point that it's gonna boil over. You're getting to a point where you're experiencing a loss of faith, take the time that is necessary to anchor that faith now, don't don't let it just don't let faith just be this pastime for you. That's normal bond right now someone listens to some lectures on how to do some things

00:51:44--> 00:51:59

here. They're not like the most important thing in the world to me as my Dean. And if I feel like that's withering away from me, I need to do whatever I can to maintain it. And so, you know, somehow a few years ago in Ramadan, I did a series called The favorite Bible.

00:52:00--> 00:52:39

And, you know, it's it's varied on the YouTube channel. But please do go back and watch that in Charlottetown. If you're someone whose faith is withering away, or you feel that loss of faith, please go back and watch the series inshallah Tada, and make the most of it. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala forgive us and show mercy on us. I pray that a loss of parents and accept us this later to Qatar, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to not just plead for his forgiveness, but to work for his forgiveness. I pray that Allah subhana wa, tada completely expound all of our sins prior to this night, prior to these nights, and gives us the strength and the steadfastness

00:52:39--> 00:53:18

that's necessary to completely change our trajectory within some kind of hope. I pray that Eliza's ever replace those sins, with good deeds, those bad habits with good habits. I pray that a loss account Allah grant us mercy in this life and mercy in the hereafter. Pray that Allah subhanaw taala protect us from the punishment of the grave protected from punishment of the Fire. and grant us all gentlemen for those I asked the last time which Allah to help us resolve the greatest that we have asked Allah Subhana Allah to guide all of us to the proper path of recourse, both in regards to our transgressions that are between us and our Creator. And in regards to our transgressions that are

00:53:18--> 00:53:58

between us and the Creator, basically, the creation, pretty little loss of data, except the small one from us, despite its imperfections and shortcomings alone, I mean, a lot of you mean, requesting your app once again for myself and my family and shout out to Allah and the entire European team. Those that are taking the time out to do this right now to make sure that this goes Please pray for all of us and shout what's out and our families mobilizers allow an angel to say a woman I mean for you, well, that could be misbehave and inshallah Tada. Tomorrow, we'll talk about what it looks like to turn the page. So the next is the most powerful AI and this entire sequence of ions, which is

00:53:58--> 00:54:08

what a lot actually replaces your sins, with the deeds and what the implications of that are. Exactly, well hate and I apologize for the technical laughs in the middle so that I might come up with one
