Series: Sajid Ahmed Umar – Ramadan 2018
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dearest brothers and sisters in Islam I pray you all well tonight is the 25th night of Ramadan. And it's another odd night
and another great possibility for leaders regarding Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us firm in our search for this bless at night I mean and if it's passed me on lawmakers from amongst those that witnessed it and if it is yet to come May Allah bless us to witness it. I mean your element
in tonight's throw away, the Imam recited a potent especially with Ed in front of us. In surah Falconer Allah subhanho wa Taala says
while you ask evil Allahu NASA Bhima Casa boo matter okay, I
it is so pertinent so Pamela has a similar idea to this in another surah in the Quran, which was recited
during another taraweeh which Allah subhanho wa Taala says and sort of tunnel all over US law who
told me he met araca and he had the BA
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, when this was decided in the previous night, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if Allah subhanho wa Taala took into account everyone for their sins,
right, then nothing would remain on earth in the proper way that just was completed.
Tonight, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in sort of out there, but if Allah subhanho wa Taala took to account everybody because of the deeds, the earnings
because of the decisions the actions,
right, then nothing would remain on Earth. Our brothers and sisters in Islam understand this and understand it well when Allah says nothing will remain on earth meaning if Allah punished us and held us accountable for every slip up, then even the answer would not have an ability to exist. Even the atoms even bacteria, nothing would exist because the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala would descend and descendant descent and it would be overwhelming that the Earth could not manage to,
to maintain any form of life. Right with the permission of Allah of course, is Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the creator and the giver of life and death. So brothers and sisters in Islam, if Allah subhana wa
didn't forgive us, all right, that's one thing if Allah subhana wa tada held us accountable for everything we said everything we thought, everything we did, nothing would remain on us. Nothing would be able to exist. Right? Now highlight this I especially in light of lead coming up, the brothers and sisters in Islam. How many times do we hold people accountable to handle law, and we hold them accountable for everything, it might be big, okay. But even for small things, Pamela, we hold them accountable. We we, we tend not to forget, even if we forgive them, we don't forget. And then for a smaller matter, we end up bringing up the past. And then sometimes we forgive them and we
don't forget and for no matter, we start being suspicious about them. And we, you know, we bring up the past and then we create unfavorable circumstances for the brotherhood and sisterhood of the oma. Early. I told you about sort of pseudo gerat and how pseudo 200 is a pseudo sort of brotherhood and sisterhood. And that's Allah subhanho wa Taala makes anything that can break the brotherhood and sisterhood around from them suspicion. Now I'm not saying a Muslim should not be wary. I am Muslim definitely shouldn't be naive. I'm sorry, I'm speaking to you from the side of the masjid. So this cars driving around. I apologize if it disturbs the audio. So what I'm saying is we definitely
mustn't be naive, but rather than system sometimes we take it to the next level. And, you know, we we consider the slip up of a Muslim brother or sister. They are known and harassed everything they do because of the class slip up. No, it's not a mistake. This is how they are. And then we create this unity and we break the Brotherhood. We break the sisterhood you know brothers and sisters in Islam, Abubakar Viola and became angry once with his relatives. And this is the sort of No, absolutely this lesson. Next Ramadan or at another stage will not give us life. Because Waterloo has passed. He made a mistake mustache made a big mistake, major mistake was he wrong he was wrong was a
boubakeur right to get angry Abubakar he had every right to get angry, or Alibaba became angry. He promised that he wasn't going to spend on Mr. haggin because Mr. was a poor relative. And Buddha used to be generous to him and used to spend on him and give him and look after him. And then when he became angry with him because of this major, major, major mistake that Mr. Did towards Abubakar and his daughter, I should have
mahana Abu Bakr became very upset and said, I'm never going to spend on you again. You know what Allah subhanho wa Taala did Allah subhana wa Jalla revealed it and sort of knew about this incident commanding Abu Bakr to forgive Mr. Yes, Mr. was wrong, but you still have to forgive him and pardon him. Allah says forgive him and pardon him, meaning forgive him in such a beautiful way that you don't bring up the past. Make your forgiveness more beautiful, right? Make it not just a forgiveness but a beautiful forgiveness Allah commands Him to forgive me. And then Allah reveals that do you not love for Allah to forgive you? Do you not love Allah to pardon you do not love Allah to overlook
your situation and your circumstances. You don't love Allah to overlook your slipups right?
So Han Allah, and I will immediately act on the ayah and he forgives me.
And not only does he forgive Mr. The spending that he used to give Mr. He increased on that spending he used to give more than he after he forgave him than he used to give him before he forgave him and before the problem.
Allah says forgive him as you love for Allah to forgive you brothers and sisters in Islam, forgive other people as you love for Allah to forgive you. I'm not saying be naive, I'm not saying fall into the same hole twice, but I'm saying forgive other people, as you love for Allah to forgive you the day of EDI is coming. You don't want it to be a day, which is the day of unity whereby you're not making sense to your family members. You're not looking after the bonds of kinship you because you have a problem with the particular adult you encouraging your children to have a problem with their children. And it's a it's an endless cycle of madness. Right? Forgive other people, as you love
Allah to forgive you. If Allah held you accountable for every slip up, nothing would exist. Allah forgives you Subhana Allah, Allah doesn't only forgive you Subhana Allah, Allah doesn't even hold you accountable to need to forgive you this whole mess, this is a human right, that we slip up a lot doesn't hold us accountable.
And we hold people accountable for their sins and their mistakes, as if we are angels. Right? So this is the lesson for this evening on this grand 25th night. From Yvonne, my dearest brothers and sisters in Islam. Again, there's so much to say. But I don't want to prolong this longer than needed. I want to just get the point across in the most efficient way, and give you food for thought. Because the action point as you can immediately understand from this night is to sit down and write down a list of people who you purposely avoid and understand why and find it in your heart to forgive all on those on that list or as many.
I'm not saying you need to strike up a relationship with them. Some people hurt us in unimaginable ways. But at least find it in your heart that you have that that you know what? You don't want to be a means for the difficulty on the desk Damn. Yeah. Don't be a means for the difficulty of your fellow Muslim brothers and sisters. At least that brothers and sisters, maybe you can talk to someone, maybe but don't hate them. Keep your distance give them the minimum rights as a Muslim, but find it in your heart to grow your heart to make that heart of your Salima? Because on the day of the AMA The only success is a success is the success of a pure heart. I love you for the sake of
Allah. Allah Allah Minami Allah man Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
