smilla rahmanir rahim

00:00:15--> 00:00:22

surgery recently Emory Hello Dr. Tammy Lisa Nia Tavakoli.

00:00:51--> 00:00:53

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

praises are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

For indeed

00:01:01--> 00:01:01

it is

00:01:03--> 00:01:16

because of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us that we have witnessed Salatin verger in congregation.

00:01:17--> 00:01:26

This is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That we need to recognize and we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

and this realization becomes manifest. When we look at the

00:01:35--> 00:01:42

situation in the massage and compare the attendance for this particular salah

00:01:43--> 00:02:14

and other Salawat we know that so that is the Salah that always has the least that attended. Thus we should thank Allah subhanho wa Taala because it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who wanted to accept or grant as goodness, wanted goodness for us and thus inspired us to be here. This is something which we should realize. Right? If Allah subhanho wa Taala once goodness for his lay view high level as bad

00:02:15--> 00:02:27

as the Allah say Allah subhanho wa Taala sets the wheels emotions put in puts the means for his slave to achieve that goodness. When you are walking on the street and you see

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

a person who is poor,

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

and you decide

00:02:33--> 00:02:40

on that day, to put your hand in your pocket and take out a dime and pass it on to this poor person.

00:02:42--> 00:02:55

You should think Allah subhanho wa Taala because it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who wanted to go to grant you a big agenda. Thus he inspired you to do that act of charity to do that which would be a means of you getting a great agenda.

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

And

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

on another day when you pass the same poor person

00:03:03--> 00:03:06

and you refrain from putting your hand in your pocket

00:03:07--> 00:03:14

and passing out a dime. Don't ever feel it is because you felt like you didn't want to.

00:03:16--> 00:03:30

It is because on that day Allah subhanho wa Taala did not want to accept goodness from you on that day. Ella hi Lola. So this is understanding we should have servants of Allah, that our lives are in the hands of Allah. Allah, Allah Allah

00:03:32--> 00:03:59

and the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Divine Will and predestination folk are cliche is above everything. This doesn't mean that we don't have a choice. And that is a different discussion altogether. But what we should take from this is gratitude, and how we should thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for if we do so, Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase for us. With that said are servants of Allah.

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

We are a weak entity, we have been created weak. Allah subhanho wa Taala said well who live in Santa Rosa, that mankind has been created weak. And because we are weak, we fall into error. We make mistakes,

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

we sin,

00:04:20--> 00:04:38

we fail to comply with the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala is weak in terms of its nature, in terms of its status and this is something which we can all bear witness to. Even the status of our Salah is not worth he

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

and does not conform to diversity Allah subhanho wa Taala has asked us to be God conscious of him the way he deserves to be remembered. We are weak. However Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Most Merciful. And this is what I want to discuss with you for this morning. Never ever losing hope in the mercy of Allah Subhana

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

had

00:05:01--> 00:05:25

never ever losing hope despite our sins, despite our situations, despite our mistakes, never ever feel that there is never a chance for you to engender for as long as you are breathing My dear father and my dear brother, annoying understand that it is a chance for you, the breath that you breathe

00:05:26--> 00:05:29

are a chance for you to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:30--> 00:05:41

Who is it? Who said he had been Adam? Lo Bella guca and any summer? semester fratelli laka laka?

00:05:43--> 00:05:52

Who is the one who said Oh son of Adam, if you send and send that your sins reached the surfaces of the skies. So Pamela,

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

just try and imagine assumed to be or to equate.

00:05:58--> 00:06:12

fish feed Have you seen fish feed? It's very small, right? Imagine a sin that equates fish feed and you fill up the entire atmosphere. With this, how many sins would that be?

00:06:14--> 00:06:29

And here Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says if you if they reach the surfaces of the skies to Mr. fatale, and then you turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and you sought forgiveness for your sins like offer to her like her wallet.

00:06:30--> 00:06:35

I will forgive your sins for you. And it won't even matter to me.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

Who says that oh servants of Allah.

00:06:39--> 00:06:50

Allah. Indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala Who is the one who says you have been Adam? Oh son of Adam, in the owner, the lady who

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

won a few Villa Jamia festa Rooney,

00:06:57--> 00:07:15

who is the one who says, oh, son of Adam, indeed usin throughout the day, and throughout the night, but it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who forgives all sins that seek forgiveness for your sins, and Allah sees them and consider your sins forgiven?

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

Who says this in Allah?

00:07:20--> 00:07:26

Who, yep, Sophia who believe in Leah Tomasi.

00:07:30--> 00:07:50

Via to vamos a la who stretches out his hand in the day to forgive the sins of the evening, and stretches out his hand in the evening to forgive the sins of the day. Who does this oh servants of Allah. In Allah? Indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:52--> 00:07:58

Who is the one who says, never bear? A bear the

00:08:00--> 00:08:18

NL Haku Fuu Rashi Who is the one who commanded His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to inform the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala the worshipers of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful?

00:08:20--> 00:08:26

Who says this are servants of Allah insha Allah? Indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

So I pose a question. After hearing this, Heidi.

00:08:32--> 00:09:20

And this verse verses, can we ever lose hope in Allah subhanho wa tada? Should we ever feed in a state of despair? That no matter what we have done, there is no avenue for us. There is no avenue for us not to only enter gender but the greatest gender and for those that Allah should we ever feel that we don't have a chance when we have a hub? Who is Allah for? Who is Alma Nyan, who is a rush man, La ilaha illa Allah, when we have a hub, who is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful, and the one who gives without boundaries? Can we ever lose hope? Oh servants of Allah. Indeed we cannot. And a believer is an entity that never loses hope. Remember the words of iacobelli salam, when he told

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

his children in the hula rohilla in the formal Catherine

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

yaku tells his children indeed nobody loses hope

00:09:32--> 00:09:43

in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Allah subhanho wa Taala except the disbelievers and thus we say again Alhamdulillah for Islam

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

Subhan Allah was just coming here to the masjid and I saw the first set, fill out and I was telling the brother who brought me that had hamdulillah for Islam hamdulillah for Islam, Allah He here we are heading towards the end

00:10:00--> 00:10:33

Word of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we have those that are heading home, if not still engaged in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We should be grateful for this one lie. And remember yesterday I spoke about us being leaders Subhana Allah. When we look at how Islam has guided us, we are naturally born leaders. We don't have alcohol governing our lives. We don't have just going and partying governing our lives. We don't have movie nights governing our lives. We should be born leaders, automatic leaders, we don't have that which makes us

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

anything but leaders. Anything that

00:10:41--> 00:11:24

breaks the brand, and character of a leader. We don't have that which is a means of us wasting our wealth. Imagine how much wealth is wasted on the weekend. For those that do not declare the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala for those who do not accept the prophecy of Muhammad, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is this not something we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for? And the question is how many of us have actually thanked Allah subhanho wa Taala. For this, we need to be people of deeper understanding, of contemplation, of reflection, of pondering, thus we can recognize the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, because when we recognize these blessings or

00:11:24--> 00:11:40

servants of Allah, and all children of Adam, thus can we become thankful of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those that have been deemed the Grateful, I mean, so we've heard this a hadith are servants of Allah. Let me share with you

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

a couple more Hadith.

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

There's another Hadith found in the soudan books of Hadith

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

known as the Hadees of the bita

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

Hadees of the vitarka bitanga in the Arabic language refers to

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

a small card like a business card. We've all seen business cards right? It's very small card.

00:12:07--> 00:12:12

And this heading states that a slave will stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of pm.

00:12:13--> 00:12:31

I want you to understand how magnanimous the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is here we are on the Day of Prayer. And Allah subhanho wa Taala requests the book are the books of deeds for the slave and 99 files are laid

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

in appearance, each file as long as the eye can see.

00:12:38--> 00:13:10

And these 99 files contain the activities of the slave in his disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala La ilaha illa Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala will turn to the slave and ask him if he feels that he was oppressed. If these angels wrote things that were not correct, if he feels these files are not a reflection of his disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala upon which he will answer in the negative, he will not claim to have been oppressed.

00:13:11--> 00:13:22

And obviously the slave will be in a state of despair, he will be despondent, he is in a very serious situation. He's being audited by not just anybody but

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

he will gll Allahu

00:13:26--> 00:13:31

Allah huddle for the summit, Allah de la la la la, la, la la mia coloca. For

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

he'll be audited for Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will request for the

00:13:41--> 00:13:54

book of good deeds to be brought forward, upon which just one book will be brought forward. Now, you do the math, one book in weight of 99 files

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

The result is very clear.

00:13:59--> 00:14:07

So Allah subhanho wa Taala will command for these books to be placed on the scales and as this one book of good deeds is placed on the scale,

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

a little card falls out, a little card falls out.

00:14:13--> 00:14:27

And as I said, 99 files on one side and one file on the other side the result is pretty clear. But Allah subhanho wa Taala will request for this one card to be placed on the scale of good deeds as well.

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

And this slave is disappointed and what is one card going to do? One card is not even a book one card, it's kind of law. And when this card is placed on the scales, the scales of good outweigh its opposite ilaha illAllah and this person is a person from the people of Jin La ilaha illa Allah, what was on this card? La ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah Subhana Allah

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

This kalama this,

00:15:03--> 00:15:43

this statement, an article of tawheed, this declaration of the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This article upon which everything in creation, bears testimony towards Can you see the weight of your Eman and your belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala thus can you ever lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhana Allah, that if you die upon this kalama even then there is a great chance for you in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the course of Allah subhanho wa Taala another Heidi in the sorry, we're a slave compensation. And he says you're a be a snub to them and

00:15:44--> 00:15:48

he says, Oh my Rob, I have committed a sin. Forgive me.

00:15:49--> 00:15:57

So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells his angels to bear witness that he has forgiven the slave. And then the slave makes a mistake again.

00:15:59--> 00:16:06

And he turns to Allah, and he says Yara be as inept to the men for clearly.

00:16:07--> 00:16:11

Oh my Rob, I have made a mistake. Thus Forgive me.

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, again,

00:16:17--> 00:16:35

bear witness that I have forgiven my slave. Imagine if we were the owner of a business and our employee came late to work once we would reprimand him the second time. It wouldn't just be a reprimand. Right? We'd probably deduct some wages, isn't it at the end of the month?

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

This is insane. Look at Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

the slave makes a mistake again

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

and says Yara be available to them benefit Lee

00:16:51--> 00:16:55

and he says you're up I have made a mistake.

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

Thus Forgive me.

00:16:58--> 00:17:01

Now imagine if our employee came late for the third time.

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

I think we would all say masala

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

Please clear your desk. Take whatever you have an exit the premises. evacuate the premises will probably be even more expressive, isn't it? What is Allah subhanho wa Taala say?

00:17:20--> 00:17:23

That I forgiven my slave. Do you think so?

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

now know.

00:17:26--> 00:18:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala say something even greater pay attention. Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Makes the angels bear witness that this is a slave who has understood that he has a job, who is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful, and a robber who will hold him accountable for his mistakes, thus bear witness that whatever the slave does, from today, he's forgiven. The Illa Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst these? I mean, again, ask the question, can we ever lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala? Can we? Can we? No, we can't. We Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, but no one understand or servant of Allah. And oh, child of Adam, that this is not a

00:18:15--> 00:19:01

license. Somebody might think Subhana Allah, we just got a license at FedRAMP today, first class ticket. Let's go party. And we'll ask for forgiveness. We get forgiven. That is being disrespectful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We don't plan sin, and then ask for forgiveness even though we can ask for forgiveness, but we don't plan it, because nobody can guarantee that you will live to ask for forgiveness. This is what you must understand. So this is not a first class ticket. Let me qualify my statement. Right? Because October is for the person who commits a sin be Johanna sumaiya to Bula Min corrib. he commits a sin out of ignorance. It's not planned. out of ignorance. He makes a

00:19:01--> 00:19:42

mistake for Allah aka YouTube Allahu Allah him. Then for those Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful and understand or servants of Allah, that this Toba and seeking repentance from Allah subhanho wa Taala is a is a great rabada is a great rabada we should cry to Allah. We should worry Allah subhanho wa Taala let me put it that way, have this relationship, like how a two year old child is old enough to have children. We've seen to your children how they cry when they want something, they will jump on the floor and start twisting and wiggling and you try to pick them up and it's impossible to pick them

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

up. They will do what they have to do until they get what they want, isn't it and it's worse when is in a supermarket and everybody's watching. behave like a two year old was Allah subhanho wa Taala beg him ask him say Allah forgives me. I am asking you to

00:20:00--> 00:20:26

Forgive me Allah I am weak. I've made a mistake. Yeah Allah forgive me. ask Allah Don't worry. Allah subhanho wa Taala has mercy and amazing abundance and it encompasses everything La ilaha illa Allah. So turn to Allah and seek forgiveness from Allah and never lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala and no one understand that when Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives you a sin. It's not like when you delete a file on the Windows computer.

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

When you delete a file, what happens?

00:20:30--> 00:21:09

goes to the recycle bin, isn't it? But you can still find that Sylvain the recycle bin. You can undo that sin isn't it can be found. Somebody might say but I can delete it from the recycle bin, then it's gone. It won't be found. But the answer is it can still be found. If you missing about on your taxes and you think the taxman is not going to find that which you've deleted think again. Because there's software can bring out all that which has been deleted because a computer has a hard disk and a hard disk is a magnetic platter of layers, isn't it and information gets written one platter over the other. So when you delete something, it's not actually disappeared. It's just more

00:21:09--> 00:21:47

information that has been placed on top of that information and you have software that can cause the readwrite heads of the hard disk to extract information that has been written over. So that sin can still be found, but knowing understand or servant of Allah, and oh child of Adam, that when Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives you. The sin the ground on which you made that mistake is made to forget the angels that have jotted down that mistake are made to forget the ink that makes manifest that mistake is lifted. When you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of karma.

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

You meet Allah subhanho wa Taala totally free of that sun.

00:21:52--> 00:22:11

ilaha illa Allah, I leave you all with a verse. And this is known as the ayah of hope, the ayah of hope that I've seen say this is the eye of hope. And it is a verse in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says boulia Ribera de la Vina

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

fusi him.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

Jamie,

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

in our who, who will

00:22:32--> 00:23:23

listen to this very carefully. Allah subhanho wa Taala commands His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says kuliah Abadi, Latina sofo inform all my slaves, who have oppressed themselves or oppressed gone over the boundaries in the oppression of themselves. A Seraph, who Allah unfussy him, they haven't made one mistake. They might have lived 40 years, 60 years 70 years of their life in sin, tell them let Mattila never ever lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah didn't say let's say so. He said la takanobu This is a greatest stage of losing hope. Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us never ever to lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in

00:23:23--> 00:24:09

the La Jolla Zoo by Jamie and Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will forgive all your sins in abundance wholesale, quicker than the blink of an eye. La la la la. In Nauvoo, Rahim Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful Jazakallah hiren We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive our sins, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to inspire us to continue seeking forgiveness for our mistakes. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us a death whilst he's pleased with us. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us from the punishment of the grave to assist us with answering the questions in the grave to grant us a place underneath his arm from

00:24:09--> 00:24:45

the day of piano. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that witness to the treasure for the rest of our lives with Java and to inspire us to be upon the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala always and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us gentlemen, with Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Everything correct mentioned is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's most perfect and any mistakes are from myself and Shay apart and I see colossal panda who has forgiven us. So hon Allah Subhana Allah morbihan, deca eyeshadow, La Ilaha Illa and a stuffy ricotta ceremony.
