over the top bar on Isla de la Juan,
that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the man was too old to walk without help. So he was walking with the help of a cane.
And he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he said, Prophet of Allah, I have committed so many cents, so much so that if my sins were to be distributed amongst mankind, it will destroy them.
I have never left anything whether minor or major but I have committed if I were to go back to Allah subhana wa tada would Allah accept me?
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at the matter, he said, Do you bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah? And the man said, Yes. And the prophets of Allah Sallam said, Do you bear witness that I'm the Messenger of Allah and the man said, Yes. And the prophets of Salaam said Allah would replace your record the bad deeds, with a record of good deeds. The man said wa t wafaa jurati. I have committed so many teachers I have betrayed Allah subhanaw taala have committed so many major sins. And the prophets of Salaam said Allah will forgive your sins. And the man turned away while saying Allahu Akbar, Allah
Brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala divided people in the Quran into two times, there is no third
if you read and sorted for gerat, so number 49. And number 11, Allah ends the ayah by saying why melomania tuber
and those who do not turn back to Allah
and repent and ask him for forgiveness. They are about the moon.
And the moon is the plural of volume.
And volume. The stem of the word means oppression and injustice and analysis subhanho wa Taala talks about oppression in the Koran, and sort of look man so number 31 and number 13 When the man was giving advice to his son, and he said to him, yeah, Bala Yella to sherek bill.
In a nutshell calavo novoline Oh, my dear little son, do not associate partners with Allah.
Because should associating partners with Allah is the Greatest operation you might ever commit in your life. So brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa Taala divided people into two types
And I'm sure if I were to ask everyone who's listening to me now I will choose to be amongst the type, not the volume.
And for the purpose of this whole bar, we're going to define what's the meaning of tobacco?
And the next question would be, who should make tobacco?
And the third question will be out of which should I make tobacco?
And the fourth question will be what type of Toba doesn't like expect from us? And the fifth question will be
what are the conditions that I have to fulfill to make sure that Allah will accept my tober? And for the second, hobo will answer two questions. One of them are their stories of people who have committed so many senses and all accepted them. And the last question would be, when should I make Toba? Let's start with the first question. What's the meaning of tober
turba in the Arabic language means either
when I say someone tabah it means he went back. That's linguistically speaking. But technically speaking, tabber means to go back to Allah
and admit your sense and ask him for forgiveness.
And this is why Allah subhana wa Taala told us in the Quran
that Subhana Allah sometimes when you feel doomed, when you feel desperate, and all the doors are
Closed. Even if you knock on the doors of your parents, they're gonna say go back where you were your brothers, your sisters, this is one door that's open 24 seven and Allah subhana wa tada said and sorted that yet. So number 51 and number 54
eat a lot.
If there is no result, if there is no door open, the door of Allah is open 24 seven, go back to him, he will welcome you anytime.
And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us in the eye that I should previously inserted hydrolat so number 14, number 11. He said, Well, my Lamia top for all ecohome of volume. You have the choice to go back to Allah at any time. But if you don't do this, you are oppressing none but yourself. Because Allah, Allah who is a summit and a summit in the Arabic language means he is the one to whom all the creation resort at times of need, and he needs none of his creation. So he is waiting for you to go back to him, even though he doesn't need you. But he is a man, the exceedingly Merciful, the unimaginably Merciful, the incredibly Merciful, the immediately merciful once you go
back to him, he'll forgive all of your sense. That's the meaning of tober to go back to Allah, acknowledge your sins, and he will accept you. Now, next question, Who should make Toba? I'm a good Muslim. I pray five times a day.
I first Ramadan I give zakah I want Ramadan. How much do you think I should make Toba? I think I'm a good Muslim.
And I'm not gonna answer a question. I will. I will share with you what Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran. And what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the sooner when it comes to Toba, Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And sort of more. So number 24. Or number 31. He is commanding us by saying What do
Look, the IR starts with a verb in the command. It's in the imperative mood. What Allah, Allah saying, and go back to Allah. Turn back to Allah independence. admit your sins and seek the forgiveness of Allah. Allah said dua to Allah, Allah, Allah could have said what to do. And that's it. Because sometimes we make Toba out of the field that people will know what we are doing. So that's it. No, don't do Toba for people to talk to Allah. Wa tomo. Illa Hey Jeremy.
If anybody speaks Arabic amongst the audience, what's the meaning of the word Jamia? It means all of you. no exception. So Allah didn't say some of us could make Toba. Some of us don't need to make a lesson Jimmy. Jimmy are no exception. And somebody might say I told you I'm a good Muslim. Listen to the record the following part of the I went to oboe Illa Hey, Jeremy. Who are you have mystery phone? Those who committed all types of sins? No. Are you one with a boon? Oh, you sinful people? No.
Are you headed faster on all your own doors? No.
Are you healthcare fraud? Are you disbelievers? No. Are you homeownership on Oh, you're hypocrites. No. Even that is a Muslim on oil Muslims. No, he took it to the higher level. I mean,
Allahu Akbar. If all the true believers need to make Toba, what's your excuse? Now?
You have to take yourself from the first level which is Islam to imagine as an Allah is addressing the meaning. He's saying, turn back to Allah, all of you, believers.
So I don't think anybody amongst the audience, including the speaker have no excuse to make.
Why should I make Toba?
to flee? Whoa, what do you want in this life and the life to come? Isn't that success? Everyone is looking for success. Success in Arabic means Allah. Allah Allah Allah come to flee home.
And he said La La committed and say, to flee home right away. Is it no la la and La
Let in the Arabic language fairly defeated Taraji? Maybe.
And the opposite would be, you may not. Why? It depends on your sincerity. Will you make Toba? So let's say if you are sincere in October, you will attain success in this life and the life to come. So now we answer the second question, Who should make Toba? Everyone, even the believers? It has to be Toba to Allah. It has to be sincere so that you get the fruit of tober which is success in this life and the life to come. May Allah subhanaw taala give a sincere
third question out of what should I make Toba?
The scholar said two types of sins, minor sins Sahar and major sins cabeza.
And the good news is, in the Hadith, narrated by the line in both Bukhari and Muslim, he said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, A salatu salam, whatever minor sins he committed between one surah and the other, Allah would forgive them. While Juma Juba, whatever minor sins you commit between one gem and the other aloud, forgive them, what am I done in Ramadan cafaro to lima bean, homonym, toxin, whatever since they are minor that you commit between one Ramadan and the other Ramadan, Allah will forgive them as long as you stay away from major sins.
That's good news. Now,
before I move to the major sense, some people come to the environment say, can you please tell me if this is a minor sin or a major sin? And the scholar said, let us around hachiman maaseiah when I can under mantasy. Don't ask about the size of the sun, if it's minor or major, but think at the moment when you sin, who are you disobeying? Who are disobeying you stop whether it's a minor or a major one.
And this is why Subhan Allah in Sahil Bukhari
Abdullah a bit of Massoud rhodiola la Hwan said,
a true believer looks at his sins, as if they are a mountain about to crumble on his chest destroying them. He always feels his sins. And he always goes back to Allah asking for forgiveness. But a heedless person, a careless person looks at his sons as if they're a fly, that will stop at his nose, and he will do like this, and it will go away.
And a sibling of your loved one, who lived for more than 100 years, is narrated again, and recorded in Sahih. Bukhari to have said, talking to the people who lived for the first century, after 100 years after the death of the prophet SAW Selim, he's talking to them and saying, in
the communists, Sha,
Allah Rasulullah sallallahu, ala carte, you do things today. And listen, that was 100 years after the death of a lot 15 centuries. He said you do things today, you look at them, as if they are thinner than a hair. We used to look at them at the time of the Prophet Salim as if they are one of the seven deadly sins that will take you to Hellfire right away.
Don't look at the size of the sin. But think about who are you disobeying when you commit a sin.
Now moving on, the second type of sins are the major sins. And you can simply know them when you read the Quran, or the Hadith. And you find Allah subhanaw taala is always threatening that there is a punishment, or a low will be angry. These are major sense. There are many of them that we take lightly. And we think that they are minor sense. Many of them we commit on a daily basis. I'll give you two for example, backbiting, slandering. When we have free time, that's what we do. People will step out of the magic of such a powerful Hopper, and we're going to be talking about someone. Look at this brother. Look what he's doing. Look at the way he's dressed. Okay, why didn't you talk to
him? What are you talking about him? Talk to him. If you're sincere about your advice, talk to him, don't talk about him. That's a major sin.
And if you read in the same sort of sort of gerat you know, Allah Subhana, wa Taala and sort of 149, eight to 12. He's talking about some of these major sins. And he concludes them
with the one that I'm talking about, he said,
Do not back by one another. Because the punishment of this, Allah will bring you on the Day of Judgment, and he would bring the did
Body of your brother and he will command you to eat from it. That's the punishment. Can you imagine yourself eating a dead body of a person? That's the punishment of backbiting
We lie every day. And sometimes we give it color to say it's a white lie.
I didn't want to cause trouble. This is why I lied. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam was asked, I akuna mucho Bana with a believer because he said, Yes, I akuna minal mahira. Would a believer be miserly? He said yes. But when he was asked it
would have been believer be a liar? He said no.
He said no.
So be careful, go and study what are the minor sins? What are the major sins I can cover them in this book, and be where you might be committing major sins without known. Now, moving to the next question, what are the conditions that I have to fulfill to make sure that Allah subhanaw taala will accept my Toba if I committed major sins to four conditions, three relating to Allah subhanho wa Taala and one relating to your fellow human beings. As for the three relating to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number one is an Eclair and you have to stop the sin. You know what's between you and Allah, I know what's between me and Allah, with that sin that you keep doing.
Stop that sin. And when you stop that sin, stop it only to please Allah. Why? Because you might go to the doctor and the doctor would say, Stop drinking, because you're devastating your liver. So stop drinking because you don't want to devastate your liver. So you make terrible for your health, not for Allah Subhana. Allah is the one who gave you the liver allies, the one who gave you the money to go and drink and Allah is the only one who will cure your liver. So when you make Toba make Toba only to please Allah because the doctor who's treating you need the doctor to treat him when he gets sick. It's Allah who is a Shafi. The doctor is a means
tufa who is fee me when I get sick. It's what gives me a cure. The medication is the means the doctor is the means but Allah is the Creator of the means. So let your heart be attached to the creator of the means not the means itself. So here is the question. When I make Toba, I make Toba only to please a lot. If you want a lot to accept my Toba. Some people stop stealing. Why? They might be embarrassed when people know so they make Toba because they don't want to be exposed in front of people. Again when you stop innocent. Stop that sin for the sake of Allah. Allah is the only one who will help you to be steadfast and continue to Toba inshallah.
condition number two, another regret, remorse, that sense of guilt, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam
and Nether matoba regret in itself is repentance. Why? Brothers and Sisters when you raise your hand to Allah subhana wa Taala and say stuck for a lot. Some people do it as lip service, they don't even understand what they're saying. It's just like a stock for a lot. But when you mean it, when you feel it. You know how allottee act to this. Let me first share with you when I saw earlier in Milan, about the Moto kin and how they make tober Allah subhana wa Taala described and we're talking in a 136 unthrottled Imran so number three, he said, well let Dina either follow.
And those when they commit a sin, a major sin, and they transgress against themselves, when they wronged themselves.
Then they ask Allah for forgiveness.
That's the next condition. They do not insist on committing the same sin again and again and again. Because this is nothing but disrespect to Allah. Even if it's a minor sin, it's raised up in the sight of Allah becomes a major sin because you're showing respect to Allah subhanaw taala.
So when you say I stuck for a lot, you know what happens if you mean it, if you feel it, Allah subhanaw taala talks to the angels. He says, I am Abdi
them. My slave knows that he has a lord.
Or she has a lord who will hold him or her accountable for their sins. And they're asking me for forgiveness, bear witness my angels I have forgiven him or her on the spot.
This is how Allah treats us.
So, in Muslim men the prophets of Salaam give us the good news also saying that a woman has them become enlightened by Allah. When you make Toba when you ask Allah for forgiveness after admitting your sins,
as if you are a new born with a new slate.
So moving to the third condition, it is alhazmi Akita Allah Adam along with the electron, you have to have a strong resolve and determination that you're not going to go back and commit the same sin again a lot. Why? Well, if you go back and commit the same sin again and otavalo will accept you, and Allah will not bring the battery cord so panela look at the patience of Allah Subhana look at the bounty of Allah Subhana Medina, all what you need to do, do it now. Now, this is the third condition that our last pattern accept the last condition which relates to the human beings. And before I go there, I want to give you advice, what can help me to have that strong resolve? If you
need to change your friends, change them.
Go back and trace what makes me commit that sin. If it's bad friends, I'm going to change them. If I have to change the neighborhood where I live, I have to do it. And we all know the story of the man who killed 100 people that was the recipe given to him change, where do you live?
What do you have at home that helps you to commit the sin, you are weak when you are sitting in the laptop on your own, take the laptop to the living room where everybody can see you.
do everything possible to help yourself in front of Allah subhana wa Tada.
Now, moving to the last condition, which is relating to the human beings, it's called the most deprived demo, meaning restitution of rights and seeking people's forgiveness because Allah will forgive when it comes to his rights. But Allah will never forgives when it comes to the rights of people, people have to forgive you. If you have taken anything from anyone give it back in this life, before tomorrow, you will have nothing to give except your good deeds.
So give it back. Now, in some cultures, women do not inherit. Or you Allah, Allah said they inherit. But you decide No. If you have taken an inheritance from your sister, give it back now, even if it's your father who did this, give back the rights now, before your husband that your good deeds will be taken from you on the Day of Judgment. If you have taken anything from a brother from a friend, give it back in this life. Because if they don't forgive you in the era, they will take your good deeds. And even if you are about intergender, you'd be taking back and go to her far. Give the rights back. And rights are two types. It's something tangible, something concrete that you can touch and see.
And something abstract. So if it's money, if it's land, anything, give it back. If you backed by someone, if you slandered someone, go and ask them to forgive you. And if these people are not here anymore, and you can give them the rights back, do lots of stuff far, though lots of natural, and gifts are the heart that's what the scholar said, give charity in their name. So that Allah subhanaw taala will give them the reward. Maybe Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you for that. In conclusion of the first hook bar. The last thing that I wanted to mention is what type of tober does ally expect from us? I wouldn't say Allah wants or needs allies, and neither of us but what type of dough
but as a light expect from us? And the answer comes from the Quran. And so the number 66 and number eight, Allah subhanaw taala is calling upon you and I want you to listen carefully. Because what Allah says yeah, you're Latina Amano, his calling you should feel so special. And luck is about you. As you choose to believe Allah is giving you the honor his calling you and this ayah says yeah.
Dina Idina Amano. Yes, Allah every time you hear this after love number so it says, you know, your heart should be trembling. Alas bowling, you should listen because after your Latina M and O you who believe Allah would say do something, or stay away from something in this ayah Allah Subhana Allah says, yeah.
Oh, you who believe. Go back to Allah. admit your sins. Ask him for forgiveness. What type of Toba Allah Do you expect from us?
He said toe button are so hot in Arabic When we say no subtilisin is an item in German. So unless the toe button no so when you say I purify honey
It means you purify honey from in the residue from any waste becomes a very pure as if a less saying, purify your intention when you make Toba it's only for me it's only to please Allah. No one nothing else should be in your intention when you turn back to Allah and repentance. A holy holy Hannah was stopped for a while.
Al hamdu lillahi wa salatu wa salam ala Abadi Latina stofer y Chateau La ilaha illAllah hula hula sharika why shadow Ana Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
about that you had a habit of Allah or Superman FCB Tukwila has such an insightful Buhari Abdullah bin Omar radi Allahu Allahu Allah is reported to have said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, on the day of judgment, Allah subhana wa Taala will bring each and every one of us in front of him individually, and he will cover you so that you will not be embarrassed in front of people. And he will remind you, my slave, do you remember that sent that day? And he would say yes, Allah and he will keep in mind Do you remember that sent that day? Do you remember that send that day? Do you remember that? Send that Daniel keep saying yes, yes, yes, Allah until you fill your
doom, you're going to
say, I have never embarrassed you in the dunya. And today I will forgive you.
If this is what Allah is preparing for us from the Day of Judgment, what have we prepared for that meeting with Allah?
Allah is willing to forgive all of your sense. Are you willing to admit your sins between yourself on a Latter Day and ask him for forgiveness? Because we never know when our day will come?
Tomorrow sometimes never comes? Because we keep procrastinating. Now, the last two things that I want to conclude with first question is, are there stories of people who committed so many sins and accepted them? I shared one at the very beginning, the man who came to the processor ministry committed all types of sense. And the Muslim said alone forgive you. We all know the famous Hadith of the man who killed 100 people and how Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted Him and to come to Geneva
and because of the tightness of time, I prepared three stories, but inshallah whoever is going to attend my class inshallah, this weekend, will share the other two stories inshallah. But I will share one story with you now.
Because it's a very powerful, it's inside a Muslim, a group of mushrikeen those who are stated partners with Allah subhanaw taala, came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said, Oh, Mohammed, Salah La Jolla. Selim. We love that which you advocate. But you know what, we have committed so many major sins, killing river adultery, you know, you name it
is the expiation for our sins if we were to accept Islam, with Allah forgive us with a light accept us. And the purpose of them had no answer for them. But Allah revealed
in solid, a Zoomer and I had been sorted for con, and these are the most hopeful items.
I'm gonna recite them and translate them for you inshallah.
The first ones are in sort of similar so number 39. I am number 53. And below Allah Subhana Allah says earlier
all Mohammed say to my slaves who have gone to the extreme and committing all types of sins, minor and major, never lose hope in the mercy of Allah. Because I forgive all types of sins because I'm the old forgiving, I'm the old merciful.
What a good news. What what an increasingly merciful God, Allahu Akbar. And in the following Guide, which I don't have time to explain, go and read them and sort of Zoomer Allah give us the recipe, what should we do next? Because the first one after that is what enable
enable in Allah and in every manner has right allow the ability to switch, it means do not procrastinate. Don't say tomorrow. Don't say after the Salah. Well, I might not finish my hood, but one of my shoe, he died in the middle of the hotbar.
So to not procrastinate This is one of the most
you know, one of the most serious traps of shaitan he gives you hope delayed
next year. Don't listen to shaitan and do it now. Because you never know.
So Allah said what any witness the first word do. We
Now, don't procrastinate.
Now the other is Which to me and to many scholars are the most hopeful and the Koran are the ones in sort of Furqan. So number 25 is 68 through 70 what Allah subhana wa tada says, When levena door
and those who do not associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala
and they do not take the life of a person except for a valid reason, while
not commit adultery.
Whoever does this, they will receive punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The punishment will be multiplied on the Day of Judgment.
And they will be there in Hellfire for eternity with humiliation
except for those who make Toba
and they believe in the promise of Allah
and they start doing righteous deeds.
Not only will ALLAH forgive themselves, but alone replace the record the bad deeds with the record of good deeds.
Just think about this. If the speaker in front of you now is the worst person amongst the audience, and I have committed 4 million sins. If I were to make Toba right now, those 4 million sins will be turned into 4 million good deeds, who would reject that offer from Allah subhanaw taala. It's there in sort of harm to the Day of Judgment, but it's your choice. What kind of law one form of Allah is, was and will be all the time the old Forgiving, the Merciful. He's waiting for you despite the fact he doesn't need you. So your choice conclusion is when should I make Toba? Allah answer this question? In the last is not Look, man. So number 31. And number 34. You might procrastinate.
shaitan will come and tell you there's a hadith and it's an authentic hadith Absalom said took Balto battle Abdullah Muhammad Allah will accept your Toba as long as your soul did not reach your collarbones. But do you know when?
We don't know some people are dying. You know, an aircraft some people die while they're sleeping. You don't know. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran that nobody knows when they're gonna die. This is why you need to make Toba now, because the lesson in this ayah why man
No one knows how much they would earn tomorrow. No one knows what they're gonna die. So when should we make up our brothers and sisters right now, between you and Allah subhana wa Tada.
