Al-Furqan Mosque Khutbah – Repentance – 09-11-12
Why should one know Mohammed Abu
Mohammed in Salalah alayhi wa sallam
said to her
I couldn't live without him Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah, Who sukumar fc with up Allah azza wa jal.
It's collected by a turbo Ronnie
said that a man came to the profits a lot of audience
and that man was too old
that he was walking with the help of a cane.
And he said that his eyebrows were almost closing his eyes.
And he said to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
I've committed so many sins, so much so that if they were to be distributed amongst all mankind, it will destroy them.
Would Allah accept me? If I go back to him, and repent,
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him at the Chateau La ilaha illallah wa rasulillah do you bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah and do bear witness that I'm the Messenger of Allah. And the man said yes, of Salaam said, in the Nuba DeLuca La Jolla. Ha ha Sena. The processor said a lot will replace you record the bad deeds with the record of good deeds. And the man said
it I've committed so many major sins committed so many teachers I betrayed a lot a lot of Salaam said Allah will replace your record of bad deeds with the record of good deeds for all Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah.
The man turned away from the Prophet says seven one is saying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allahu Akbar.
Brothers, Allah subhanho wa Taala divided people in the Quran
into two types.
If you read the end of anumber 11 instead of 100. So number 49. Allah subhanaw taala says, Well,
basically Allah is dividing people into two types.
So you are one of two, either someone who always questions themselves and judges himself, as
he used to say, has
judge yourself before you stand in front of a lot, and you will be judged. And you always know that you're a human being and you make mistakes, and you want to turn back to Allah and repent. That's the type. Another type are those who are volume and Roman Arabic means oppression or injustice. And according to the Quran, though, is degrees, the highest of which is mentioned in Soloman. So number 31, is 15 and down, you don't mind talking to his son giving him tips and advice. And one of them he said, Yeah, when a letter should be all my deleted son, do not associate partners with Allah in short.
Indeed, shirt is the greatest operation ever, is the greatest act of injustice you can ever go
Imagine your life. Sarah wants to either avoid him. And for the purpose of this hoodman shala. We're gonna be talking about what's terrible, because no one will be amongst a boon.
What's terrible, and who should make Toba? Because most of us today as Muslims, we think we are the best and good I don't need to make Toba.
So we should make Toba. And before that, what's the meaning of tober? And out what should we make Toba? What are the types of sins?
What type of tambor is Allah Subhana Allah expects from us?
And the following question would be, what are the conditions? If I were to fulfill, I will guarantee that I will accept my tober. And in the second, answer two questions. Are there students of people who may talk about Alexa for them, so that will motivate me inshallah to make Toba before I leave the budget today, and the last one is when should I make Toba?
So start with what's the meaning of tober.
In Arabic, the word tab, it means either or other.
So linguistically speaking, when we say
television, it means to turn back to go back
and allows the panel what Allah told us to who should go back, when all the doors are closed, there's one door that's open 24 seven,
Allah subhanaw taala says,
here's the result. If you want to go back to someone, it's Allah subhanho, wa Taala.
Allah subhanaw taala, certain sorts of zomer. So number 30, line number 53. We all make mistakes. So
Allah said, All my servants, who have gone to the extreme, have been extravagant in committing sins, basically, those who have committed all types of sins as
the lady in a cell phone,
never lose hope.
The doors open 24 seven, but just go back
things get complicated for us. All of those are blocked. We go to human beings first, and we never was held on to the end of the list. But alas, pepper said to go back, go back to Allah subhanaw taala. That's the linguistic meaning of tabber. What's the technical meaning of tabber? taba? Technically speaking in Islam means to go back for a while, and admit your sins
and ask Him to forgive you.
And we all need that.
And the next question would be who should make Toba? Some of us would say, the bad people,
the sinful people,
the heedless people, but I'm going to correct you and myself now. by referring to the whole arm. See what Allah subhanaw taala said when it comes to Toba forgot to sort of more so number 24. Number 31. Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're
You know, he didn't say
he didn't say
he didn't say
he didn't say are you Muslim on
an Islamic three degrees, Islam Eman.
Allah of people in the middle, who upgraded themselves from Muslims to Mormons is asking them know is commanding them. What trouble for those who know Arabic? This is a verb in the imperative mood for Allah. Allah said and turn back in repentance. To whom not to people to Allah was a lie, Jeremy
because some of us would say I'm a good Muslim.
I pray five times a day. I just came back from Hajj. Why should I make? Allah said Jimmy and all of you. Why? Because we commit sins every day, and the citizens should cool.
So anybody would say I'm good.
Don't make mistakes. And when I say one of them, I said Jamie, and all of you, most of them said, Good luck near them all the children of Adam, all the sons of Adam, he didn't say,
is it hotter
and hotter in the Arabic gang to Silicon Valley, meaning all the sons of Adam are in a constant state of committing sins. But then, good news you said, and the best amongst those who are in a constant state of selling those who are in a constant state of tober, turning back to Allah and repentance.
So let's say you were to lie to me and, and turn about independence to Allah, all of you believers, and you know, why
do we need success in this dunya? And he said,
so maybe you'll be amongst those who will be successful.
Because not everybody's gonna listen to this command. But some people always say I'm good. October.
Still, some people are still struggling now me and saying, Yes, I don't want to make Toba because I'm a good Muslim. Okay, listen to the best Muslim ever Prophet Muhammad Allah Allah. Islam, the Hadith, in Bukhari Muslim, narrated by Abu huraira jalon. He said,
again, this is a verb in the command, it's an imperative, turn back independence to Allah and asked him for forgiveness, for in the law was the
He said, go back and do Toba and ask Allah for forgiveness, because I was talking the best Muslim ever Prophet Mohammed, the best of believers, is that because I turned back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek His forgiveness 70 times a day. Can you give me one example of the sense of I don't know any. What about you and I, we commit sins on a daily basis.
So you're saying 75 from southern Mexico, but also offer forgiveness 70 times a day, and 100 times a day. So we all agree now that we should make Toba. Next question, out of what should we make Toba?
Of all sins and sins are two types
minor sins and major sins? minor sins? Good news, the professor himself in the Hadith narrated by Abu huraira in Bukhari and Muslim he said,
A salatu salam will Jamal Juma
ramadan will have Julian hatch Luca throttling Medina Houma
whatever minor sins that you commit between one side the other alone forgive you, whatever minor sins you commit between Joomla to Joomla, allowed forgive you, whatever minor sins, you commit between one Ramadan to the other, another ALLAH forgive you, but
we do not have to forgive you. But major sins, you have to make a special tool.
And there are conditions for the tilbyr to be accepted. And sometimes we look lightly upon sins that we commit. And this is why I want to share with you two statements made by two great of the Sahaba amongst the Sahaba.
And the two statements or inquiry.
at the library, Mr. Oh God, Allahu Allah said
looks at his sins as if they are a mountain about to fall on his chest and crush them and destroy them.
But here this person would look at his sense as if they are a fly that would stop at his nose and he will do like this and will go away.
So think which type Are you
we lived more than 100 years, he was talking to the people who lived for one century, some of the Sahaba some of the tambourine. He said to them in the community to Nephilim he
move because he said to the people who lived 100 years, not 15 sensors now, you do things today, and you look at them as if they are a strand of hair like a hair, how thin is the hair, how what is the hair? We used to see them at the time of the professor salon as if they are deadly sins that will destroy us.
And when people say come to the ship and ask him Is this a minor sin or a major sin one discover said Let us see one of you
Do Look at the size of the sin. But think Who are you disobeying?
Because the scholar said,
it could be a minor sin that you insist on, that it will be in the sight of Allah as a major sin. And it can be a major sin that you commit, and it will make you wake up and make Toba and it will be your way to turn.
One kisara one
reason was stigma. Sometimes a person was obedient to Allah, he thinks highly of himself on the best. And sometimes somebody might commit a major sin and then make Toba you better than that person.
So what are the conditions that I have to fulfill in conclusion of the first to make sure that Allah Subhana Allah will accept my tilbyr
four conditions, three rating to Allah subhana wa Taala and one relating to human beings, as well as relating to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The first one is to quit the sin, as the scholar said, earlier than you are, I know exactly what types of sins that we commit every day.
So the first step is to quit the sin. admit your sin, and stop sinning.
And when you stop sinning, you should be doing this only to please Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Because as Muslims, whatever we do, we don't only to please Allah, what are you talking about? Do some people do things to please people? Most of us do this today? A lots of different sources. But you know, what am I
they were only commanded to worship Allah subhana wa Taala. Out of sincerity to please Allah subhanaw taala alone. But sometimes some of us might quit smoking, for example. Not because it's Haram. Not because you're wasting your money, not because you're killing yourself. Not because Allah has given you the money as an amateur has given you your body as an Amana and you're wasting your money, you're destroying your health.
No, he quits. Sometimes he quit smoking because the doctors told you in the last visit, if you don't stop smoking, you will die next time when you come to me with a heart attack.
So if you quit smoking because you want to live, this is not true. You have to quit smoking because smoking is harmful.
Sometimes somebody is in a habit of stealing, he could be stealing time of his work, doesn't have to be stealing money
doesn't have to be shipped, you know, shoplifting could be any type of stealing.
And then they quit stealing, because they're going to be embarrassed in front of people. No, you should quit the sin only to please Allah subhanaw taala. That's the number one condition number one quick decision to please Allah number two,
another, it can
have that sense of guilt, that sense of remorse
that you have committed such sins, as reported in Muslim,
the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam said, another matoba that sense of remorse in itself is Toba is repentance. Why? Do you know what happens when you say I stopped for Allah, but two minutes from the heart. When you say I seek forgiveness, Allah subhanaw taala talks to the angels. And he would say to them, I
refer to them.
When I say I asked Allah for forgiveness, Allah talks to the angels saying, My servants so on. So I knew that, that he has a Lord, he has a master he has a rod, who will hold him or her accountable for their sins, bear witness, I have forgiven him or her. But you have to mean it from the heart. When you say stuff.
The process of
becoming better and better when you go to sell when you make Toba, as if you're a newborn, as will challenge you know, in the form of items
in the second, or
third condition is to have as Mickey Mouse to monitor to have a strong resolve and conviction that you're not going to go back and commit the same sin again.
Because some of us
we make Toba and go back we make Toba and go back.
And as long as you go back a lot, not hold you accountable for the past the past is forgiven already. But then this shouldn't encourage you to commit sins again.
But a lot of people
always remember this, Allah is the one.
So, some people they commit the sin and they look at look upon the sin as something like you know, something very like
described the people of taqwa, who will make it to join me Allah. Amongst them. He said, when he
and those when they commit a sin, and fascist sometimes in the Quran is referred to when it comes to adultery or fornication, but also khulumani stuff has been attached to anything that will be a port and dislike for me to say or to do.
more emphasis on or the wrong themselves.
remember Allah subhanaw taala first,
OBEY Him, then they seek forgiveness for their sins.
Who else would forgive sins other than Allah subhanaw taala. And the law says,
and does not insist on the same sin again and again and again. So you have to have a strong resolve a strong determination that you're not going to go back and commit the same sin again, this is the third condition, if you want a lot of attractive tober.
The last condition, which is late to human beings, is a lot the more volume was the broad demand. If you want a lot of chapter tober, it's restitution of rights and seeking forgiveness of the people. If you have wronged them, whatever you have taken from people, you have to give it back. Because in the ACA, you'd have nothing in your hands except your good deeds. You have no money, your children will run away from you. We all read this in the Koran, you have nothing tips or good deeds. So give it back now, before it's too late. Whatever you've taken from them, and the two rights, tangible rights, concrete rights, things that you can see and touch for something abstract, like you bite
bite people, you stand up people, you have to go back to them and say, forgive me, otherwise, they will take you degenerative judgment.
What if those people pass away, they move to another country, if they're still alive, if there is a way they can give it back to them, give it back to them, mail it to them.
email them, ask them for forgiveness. If they passed away, give a charity you can reach them, give charity in their name, but do something in this dunya before it's going to be too late. And
these are the four conditions relating to Allah with the sin for the sake of Allah, have a sense of remorse, have a strong determination not to go back and do it again. And the one rating to give back the rights and the last one is seek forgiveness from people before it's too late. Apolo Holly Heather was the
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Abadi, Latina Stouffer, and why should
Why should you know Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I'm about to head back to Villa or Tacoma has a virgin. Let me conclude with two questions.
Are there stories of people who make up and I'll accept them? And when should I make tober? First question, yes, there are so many stories and because of the tightness of the time, I'm going to only share two with Yun Sharma. First one is inside Muslim. There were so there were people who were amongst the mushrikeen who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said, Yeah, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in Hebrew motto, like we love that which you advocates. But we know what we have committed so many major sins, lots of killings, lots of adultery, we deal with ribbon. We have done so many, you know, major sins, is that expiation if we accept Islam, will Allah accept us
if we make Toba and accept Islam? And above Salaam had no answer for them, but Allah had the answer in a peran that will be excited to the Day of Judgment. I'm going to find that with you and translate them. To me, these are the most hopeful items
and they are in sort of for fun. So number 25, is 68 through 70. Allah subhanaw taala says, Well,
that was the main thing that they were committing should not associate partners with Allah subhanaw taala
and is not take the life of a person except for a valid reason
and whoever does this they will receive a severe punishment by Allah subhanaw taala.
The punishment will be multiplied for him on the detachment
and he will
touch on punishment for eternity and humiliation.
except for those who make Toba what's waiting for them.
After they make Toba after they repent, they believe in Allah, they believe in his promise, and they start doing righteous deeds. What's the reward from Allah for Allah?
Allah will replace what se
Allah, Allah will replace the records of bad deeds with record of good deeds, Allahu Akbar, who can do this to other than
human. Imagine, if I am now standing in front of you. I'm the worst person in this gathering. And I have 2 million say that decided to make terrible right now. I'll be the best one amongst you, because those two minutes will be 2 million has a net. So who will delay Toba after hearing this? Who will do it?
And I'm going to include with the last question
When should I make Toba?
shaytan will come to you. And this is one of the most dangerous parts of shaitan it's called at this week and mn will give you hope. Man, your dad died at the age of 85 your grandpa died at the age of 90. So delay inshallah until they get
inshallah until you know, you start seeing like the white hair, then you can
almost about to die.
Listen, I'm going to share this a conclusion. If you know when you're gonna die delayed before death.
Because the professor said, took the baton button. Man and meaning Allah will accept your Toba until your soul will come to the collarbones because your soul leaves your body from the bottom to the top. So imagine alone except your Toba until your soul reaches your collarbones. It's almost about to leave the body. But you
took Balto but
as long as the sun does not rise from the west, which means this is the day of judgment. But do you know what it is? So we don't know when we're gonna die.
We will know when the day of judgement is. So when should we make Toba? I'll give you the ayah Allah subhanaw taala told us we should not delay the Toba because we don't know when we're gonna die. Read the last
number 34 and
No one knows how much money would they make tomorrow? You might say I know. I know how much I make per hour. But what I can go to sleep and you can take your bet you might get sick. You might die tonight. You get the ante. I can guarantee to finish this football. There's a say who's giving the hope but he died in the middle of football. I can guarantee to live this budget after I pray. So last night I said nobody knows how much money they will make tomorrow. Nobody knows where or when they can die. So when should we make Toba? Right now, right now. Aloha.
