Do they not know that Allah extends provision for whom He wills, and he also restricted, meaning this is entirely in Allah's hand, to give one person more and to give another less, or to give a person more in one part of his life, and the next day, all of that is taken away from him. This is whose decision Alice's decision indeed and that are Signs for people who believe that it's amazing how a person is given so much in this life, and then what happens, all of that is taken away, or part of that is taken away. What does it teach us that our wealth our success is not in our control? It isn't whose control allows control? It is in his hand. Just like our sleep isn't in our control,

00:00:47--> 00:01:36

no, waking up is that in our control, never. Allah subhanaw taala puts us to sleep, even when we're fighting our sleep. And he wakes us up when we're trying to sleep. And we need to take medication to fall asleep. What does it show to us that we are weak? We are ultimately His servants. boulia iva de alladhina a software either unfussy him, say oh my servants who have transgressed against themselves, how is it that they have transgressed against themselves by sending too much by disobeying Allah excessively over and over again, one mistake, one sin, one lie after the other. And all of us are included in this because we all make mistakes. And if we try to list the mistakes that

00:01:36--> 00:02:30

we have committed, the sins that we have committed, that list would be very long. What does Allah say? Let the economy Rahmatullah do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Never, ever think that you are unforgivable, that your sins are too many to forgive? No, Indeed, Allah forgives all sins in the La Jolla fille de Nova Jamia in Nauvoo, Allah for Rahim indeed it is he who is the Forgiving the merciful, Allah forgive sins, but what is the condition that you turn back to him, that you leave the wrong that you are doing? And you seek His forgiveness? You leave what he has forbidden? And Allah will pardon you. But for that, what do you have to do first of all, have hopen Allah, that no

00:02:30--> 00:03:11

matter how many sins I have committed a look and still forgive them. Remember the story of the man who committed 100 murders 100 murders, a person who committed 99 murders, he went to somebody and he said that I've killed 99 people. Is there any hope for me? That man said no, no for you, you can never be forgiven. So he got so upset. He killed that man. So now he had 100 murders on his record. And then what happened? He went to somebody else. And he said, I've committed 100 murders and you hope for me? He said, Yes. You repent to Allah, you apologize to Allah, you seek forgiveness with all your heart, and Allah will forgive you. But for that do Toba and for Toba, leave this place,

00:03:11--> 00:03:56

leave this place that you're in, go somewhere else. So that man, he left his home country and he was moving, he was going somewhere else. He was traveling to another place and what happened on his way, death came to him he died. So the angels came one group of angels fighting that no, he committed 100 murders. And another group of angels I said no, but he repented. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala told the angels Okay, measure the distance that he has traveled away from the place that he left and measure the distance that he has left to the place that he was going to whichever one is shorter, that is what will be done. So if the distance that is left towards his destination, that is

00:03:56--> 00:04:43

shorter than he should be taken by the angels who take the righteous souls. So what happened Allah subhanaw taala cause the earth to stretch, expand, so that the person who's done what would be accepted? I mean, Allah accepts repentance in the whole world of oral Rahim. Alhamdulillah none of us have committed 100 murders. Alhamdulillah. But we see that even the greatest of criminals, if he comes to Allah seeking forgiveness of luck and forgive him, you know, it would have been an asset of the long run who amazing man. He was like a big politician in Makkah. And this man, this is a hobby. What happened that when the Muslims migrated from Morocco to Abyssinia, I'm a bit on the low on who

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

went on behalf of the mushrikeen to get those Muslims back to speak to the joshy and get those Muslims back so you can imagine he was not an ordinary man. And he tried to get the Muslims back but he failed in that. And then so many battles against the Muslims. He was actively involved.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

He was an enemy to Allah and His messenger to the Muslims. And then what happened? Eventually, he realized that this truth is going to prevail. So he left Makkah, he said, I'm not going to accept this truth, because you know, it was a matter of pride. So he said, Islam is going to reach Makkah very soon. And if the profits or loss gets here, I'm not going to be forgiven. So what did he do? He left Makkah, and he went to Abba senior. He went to a senior, because he thought, Well, if the Muslims found shelter there, I'm sure the king will be good to me. And he will let me live as emotionally called so. So he went there. And one day he happened to be close to the king. He was in

00:05:39--> 00:06:19

the Kings company. And there was a Muslim man that came to the king. And he said to the king, to the Najafi that let me kill this Muslim. I mean, this shows how much hatred he had for the Muslims. He said, Let me kill him, allow me to kill him. And the joshy he did our to Ross, and Ross, he embraced Islam over there. And then he left avicennia went to Medina to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And when he was embracing Islam at the hands of the prophets of Allah Salaam, he took his hand away a little bit on us. He was hesitant the profit or loss and I'm asked him that, what's the hesitation? He said? What about all my previous sins?

00:06:20--> 00:07:06

What about all my previous sins all that I have done against the Muslims? Will I be forgiven? And the prophets of the lessons that Don't you know that Islam erases all the sins that you have committed in the past? One act of Shahada all your sins are forgiven? The fact is, that no sin is too big for Allah to forgive, and no sins are too many for Allah to forgive. No sense. No amount of sins are too many. All that is needed is that a person while he's alive? What does he need to do? He needs to sincerely feel regret over what he has done. Turn to Allah in repentance, beg elaborate forgiveness, and Allah will forgive. This is what is mentioned over here, return in repentance to

00:07:06--> 00:07:49

your Lord, and submit to Him, what are you waiting for, submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you, then you will not be helped and follow the best of what was revealed to you from your Lord, before the punishment comes upon you suddenly, while you do not perceive, you don't know when death is coming. Because what happens, we keep delaying that, oh, I will leave the sin by the end of Ramadan, or I will leave the sin when I'm 20 years old, I will leave this when I go for Hajj. But how do we know? What if we never live up to that day? And if death comes before we repent, Allah says less assault should say, oh, how great is my regret over what I neglected in regard to Allah,

00:07:50--> 00:08:39

and that I was among the mockers or less did say, if only Allah had guided me, I would have been among the righteous or less did say, when it sees the punishment, if only I had another turn another chance. So I could be among the doors of good. So we see that if a person does not rectify himself now, if he doesn't repent now, then he will have all of these regrets eventually, if today a person is overcome by his sin, addicted to his sin, He must come out of that. Why? Because death can come upon a person while he is committing that sin. And perhaps if he doesn't repent, then these regrets will remain with him for eternity. This is why it is important that we correct ourselves today.

00:08:39--> 00:09:21

forgiveness and pardon is when a person admits his sins he confesses to Allah. But if a person justifies his wrong actions today, then tomorrow, he will have only regrets left. You see, what do we do? Generally, we blame other people. Oh, yeah, I'm doing this because of my husband. I'm doing this because of my children. I'm doing this because I'm young. I'm doing this because of the fact that I live in this world. Yes. These are the tests that what do you do when things are not easy? What we have done is that from our religion, we have only chosen things that are easy to do. If we find it easy to pray, and yes, we will pray. We find it difficult to pray. We leave our Salah when

00:09:21--> 00:10:00

we have to go to a wedding and our face is covered in makeup. Why would somebody want to wash off that makeup? And do we'll do we'll leave our prayer over there. We leave it literally. When fasting is easy. We fast when fasting is difficult, we leave fasting. So unfortunately, this is our state that we only take from the dean what is easy, but we forget that this is the test of life. That how much importance do we give to Allah, but if we don't give importance to Allah, the way he deserves, and we keep committing the sense that we're committing, and we blame the world, we blame other people around us then on the Day of Judgment, these blames and these

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

excuses will not work at all. Because if a person genuinely sincerely tries to correct himself, then what will happen? Allah will give him the strength, Allah will give him the ability. And for that, first of all, we have to make up our mind. I want to move away from the sin. I want to leave this forbidden matter. I want to start this in my life, what Allah has ordered, make up your mind, be firm about it. And then ask Allah for strength also, ask Allah for strength, Repent, and also there are and Vicar of Allah. This is something that washes away our sins. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever says La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, WA Al Hamdulillah was Subhana Allah,

00:10:48--> 00:11:34

when a how La La quwata illa Billah and all of these as God, we've been discussing their virtues. So whoever says this, then this will be an expiation for all his sins, even if they may be like the foam on the sea. La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, while hamdulillah or Subhana Allah will are hola La quwata illa Billah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a still fit Allahu Allah de la ilaha illa who will hire you will tell you what a tubal LA I seek forgiveness from Allah, the one whom besides whom there is no other God worthy of worship, he is the living the eternal, and I repent to him, a person who says this, then he will be forgiven, even if he had fled the

00:11:34--> 00:12:21

battlefield. You see, fleeing from the battlefield is a major sin. It's counted as the major sense. Also after Salah we should do this we Health Savings a panel of 33 times 133 times Allah hopper 33 times, and then La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika that will volkova Al Hamdulillah, Konishi and Cody. Whoever says that, then his sins will be forgiven, even if they're like the form on the sea. Have you ever seen a bubble bath? Have you seen the amount of bubbles the form? Now just imagine if there is an ocean? Just imagine the amount of foam over there. All of that Sins of a servant, and they will be forgiven if a person remembers Allah regularly. Likewise, we learned the Prophet

00:12:21--> 00:13:07

sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever says upon wearing clothes Alhamdulillah Hilary cassani Heather Thurber, what are the funny human lady heavily Mineola Cova, then all his previous sins will be forgiven. Imagine after sada on wearing clothes and the Hadees doesn't specify a new clothes, by the way. So changing into your quotes. I mean, when a person remembers Allah at these times, it really shows that he has his heart is turning to Allah. And when a person is turning to Allah, that Allah will forgive his sins. Allah has created many ways for our forgiveness. Now the fault is ours. If we because of our ignorance, or our negligence or our laziness, we do not avail these times and

00:13:07--> 00:13:48

opportunities that after a slot, I will say, I don't really feel like saying the call today, how long is it going to take three minutes, four minutes, five minutes maximum. But these are ways of having our sins forgiven. Then we also seen these verses that a person will regret on the day of judgment that I was of those who used to mock meaning instead of listening to the words of Allah, and abiding by them. I didn't pay attention and instead I mocked at them. And this is something that will cause immense regret to a person on the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Every dweller of Hell is shown his place in Jannah. That was fixed for him. Imagine every person who

00:13:48--> 00:14:38

will be sent to hell, he will be shown his place in general that have been reserved for him. It had been reserved for him. And he will say, lo anila Danny, if only Allah had guided me, but I'm not dead guide him he did not accept that guidance, fair, coonara lame hustler, this will be a source of regret for him. And a person in general, he will be shown the place in hell that was reserved for him. And he will say that Allah guided me and this will be a source of sugar for him, Lola and Allaha. Danny, if a lot of not guided me, I wouldn't have been here for cornella horseshoe crab, this will be a source of gratitude for him. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam recited these

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

verses, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in many, many ways. He taught us that never ever despair of sins. And no matter how many sins have been committed, what is the solution? Turn to Allah, seek His forgiveness and eagerly try to earn a less pleasure and Allah will be pleased with you Alyssa

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

Bella Khadija atka iottie but yes, they had come to you my verses, but you denied them and were arrogant and you were among the disbelievers. And on the Day of Resurrection, you will see those who lied about Allah with their faces blackened, overcome with gloom with darkness with despair. Is there not in hell? A residence for the arrogant and Allah who will save those who feared him by their attainment, Allah will save who on the Day of Judgment, those who feared Allah, no evil will touch them, nor will they grieve Allah who hajikko coalition Shea, Allah is the Creator of all things, or who are Allah cliche in Joaquin, and he is over all things Disposer of affairs,

00:15:47--> 00:16:31

everything is under his eye lahoma Kali the summer what you will have, to Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. And they who disbelieve in the verses of Allah, it is those who are the losers say, oh Prophet, is it other than Allah that you order me to worship or ignorant ones? Meaning anyone who is calling a person to the worship of other than Allah, then who is he? Who is he intellectual, very knowledgeable, no, he is ignorant, and it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate anything with Allah, your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers. This is being set to who the Prophet sallallahu

00:16:31--> 00:17:15

alayhi wa sallam that if you do [???], then your deeds will be wasted, then what about the rest of us? It should be permissible for us. No, is it allowed for us to make the off to somebody else, to go and sacrifice an animal to please someone who's dead so that we can have a child or so that our problems can go away? These are all different acts of ship. And if a person does shake, then all his good deeds are wasted, but the last half hour but what Commissioner shackling rather worship only Allah and be among the grateful because worship, what is that? It isn't reality, gratitude to Allah. When we worship Allah, we're thanking Allah, that Allah you gave me everything I have you made me.

00:17:15--> 00:18:02

Whatever I am, whoever I am, it's all because of you. So when we thank Allah when we glorify a lo when we praise Allah, we are showing gratitude to Allah worship is shook. So worship Allah, what Commissioner shackling women are de la casa de, they have not appraised Allah with true appraisal, meaning they have not estimated Allah the way they should have estimated him, they have not thought of him the way they should have thought on him. They have not known Allah, the way they should truly know of law, they have not valued him, they have not understood him correctly. And this is the sad state of the majority of the people. We don't really understand who Allah azza wa jal is, when we

00:18:02--> 00:18:45

think about herself, we think about, you know, an ordinary being, just asking us about the deeds that we have done. And so we can give one justification after another, and we can argue on our behalf and defend ourselves and give one logic after another. No, we don't really know who Allah is an any person who either associates partners with Allah, or rejects the existence of Allah subhanaw taala? Or does not believe in the oneness of Allah? Or who doesn't have hope in Allah? Then what does it mean? They don't really know who Allah is. They don't really know who Allah is. Because if we truly knew who Allah is, we would never ever give up open Allah. I mean, it's amazing. When you

00:18:45--> 00:19:25

look at the lives of the prophets, did they live easy lives? Or you? Well, Islam was sick for 18 years? Can you imagine a person being sick with a condition for 18 years? What would happen to his faith, he would lose it, lose it completely. Don't we see people who are sick and what happens in their sickness? They don't even make God themselves. They become angry with Allah. They wonder why what is happening with them is happening with them. Likewise, why is it that when we are striving when we are looking for something that is lawful, and we cannot achieve it through lawful ways, why is it that we tend to hold on to unlawful ways? Like for example, Allah has made it very clear to us

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

in the Quran and Sunnah that Riba interest is something that's unlawful. Why is it that people leave halon and go to river? Why? Because they think it is not possible to get what you want. Otherwise, Hello? Oh, it doesn't work anymore. You can't survive it anymore. You have to use the haraam options. Aren't these the kind of statements that we hear from our own Muslim brothers and sisters? Why do they say this? Why do they believe in this? Because they don't know who Allah is. They doubt Allah's law. They doubt his name.

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

Knowledge, his wisdom, his decisions his decree, because they don't know who Allah is, who is Allah. Just one thing is mentioned over here, that the earth entirely will be within his grip on the Day of Resurrection. And the heavens, the skies will be folded up in his right hand, because the skies are open right now. But on the Day of Judgment, they'll be wrapped up, Exalted as he and high above what they associate with him.

00:20:31--> 00:21:16

One of the coffers soon, and the horn will be blown and whoever isn't the heavens and whoever is on the earth will fall dead, except whom Allah wills, then it will be blown again and at once they will be standing looking on. This is the day of judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, between the two sounds of the trumpet, they will be 40. Somebody asked 40 days of Buddha lover I know when he was narrating this Hadith, somebody asked him 40 days. He said, I don't know. The man said 14 months. A Buddha said I do not know 40 years again he refused to reply Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not specify what that 14 meant. But we learned that the Trumpet will

00:21:16--> 00:22:04

be blown. Every creature will die, every creature we have will fall what Hurrah because it will. Only his face shall remain. And this will be for a period of 40 no one besides Allah will be alive, everyone will be dead, and then the Trumpet will be blown again and the creation shall be resurrected. This is Allah Our Lord, the EverLiving the eternal, what I should have gotten to be Nura beha. And the earth will shine with the light of its Lord. Meaning on the Day of Judgment, the earth will shine because nothing will remain on this earth mountains everything will be collapsed, turned to dust flattened like a white piece of round bread. This is how the earth will become so the

00:22:04--> 00:22:57

earth will shine with the light of its Lord, and the record of deeds will be placed and the prophets and the witnesses will be brought and it will be judged between them in truth and they will not be wronged. Well, we'll see at Kowloon of Cyma amela Well, who will be my wife alone, and every soul will be fully compensated for what it did. And he is most knowing of what they do. Every person will be compensated for their deeds on the day of judgment was the Latina cafaro Elijah Hannah Matsumura and those who disbelieved will be driven to hell in groups. Just picture this crowds of people being led by shepherds where into hell, until when they reach it, its gates will be open, and its keepers

00:22:57--> 00:23:37

will say, did they not come to you messengers from yourselves reciting to you the verses of your Lord? Meaning Did you not come to know about the Quran? Did you not hear the truth? Did you not learn about the Quran? Was the Quran not recited to you? Are we of those people whom the Quran is recited to? And what about the rest of mankind? Are they getting a chance to listen to the Quran because this thing is something very easy. You can do it with closed eyes. You can do it while lying down. But if a person really pays heed to what he's listening to, he can benefit he can change. So when people will be entering hell, they'll be asked, Did the messengers not come to you? reciting to

00:23:37--> 00:24:22

you the verses of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours? They will say yes, but the word of punishment has come into effect upon the disbelievers. Meaning we heard but we didn't listen. We heard but we didn't pay attention. Yes, we learned but we never really took lesson, we never really changed ourselves, we never really acted upon what we learnt. We see that on the Day of Judgment a person will go after whom he follows a person will be with those whom he loves. Because what is mentioned over here people will be taken in groups to hellfire. Even in this world, what happens groups are formed based on what like mindedness. So on the Day of Judgment also

00:24:22--> 00:24:59

what will happen, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said on the Day of Judgment, and will then will proclaim meaning announcer will announce that let every people follow what they used to worship. Then all who worshiped idols and stones besides Allah would fall into the fire and I mentioned this Hadees to you earlier in detail, that how each group will follow who the one that it used to worship. To them, it will be said enter the gates of hell to abide eternally they're in and Richard is the residence of the arrogant was the Yukon Latina taco

00:25:00--> 00:25:52

Boom, either jannetty Zoomer Ah, but those who feared their Lord will be driven to paradise in groups also, they'll be taken to paradise as dignitaries in groups. Now think about it. Which group do we want to be in? An in the crowd which specific group do we want to be in? When they reach it while its gates have been opened and its keepers will say, peace be upon you. The angels will say Salaam Alaikum play button for the Hello Holly Deen, peace be upon you. You have become pure. You were good, you did well, so enter it to abide eternally they're in so they will enter and they will say Alhamdulillah Hilary Sadako nawada.

00:25:54--> 00:26:24

Natasha what luminol jannetty hasanah Shah funair Maru ami lien. Upon entering gentlemen, they will say All Praise to Allah who has fulfilled for us His promise and made us inherit the land. So we miss out on in Paradise, wherever we will. And excellent is the reward of the righteous workers. It is those who work that will go to agenda, not just those who wish and dream and plan and do nothing then.

00:26:26--> 00:27:12

And you will see the angels surrounding the throne from all sides, exalting Allah with praise of their Lord, and it will be judged between them in truth, the people of genda will be sent agenda and the people of hell will be sent to hell. And it will be said, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen All Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds because all praise to Allah at the beginning and all praise to Allah at the conclusion also, at the ending also, that when people are sent to their final destination will clean al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the first group of people who will enter Paradise will be glittering like the moon when it is

00:27:12--> 00:27:29

full. They will not spit meaning they will not have the need to spit or blow their nose, or even use the bathroom. This is the beauty of Jana, their utensils will be of gold, and their combs will be of gold and silver, meaning everything pure luxury.

00:27:30--> 00:28:20

And there's more description also of the fragrance of the food of the companionship. in general. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said 70,000 people will enter Paradise as one group, and among them, they will be people whose faces will be bright like the moon, and who are they, those who rely upon Allah subhanaw taala. Then we also learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that whoever gives two kinds of things in charity, two kinds, what is meant is a complete bear. So for example, not just one horse, but a male and a female horse, for example. Likewise, in charity could also be clothing. All right, but what good is a shirt without a pant for example. So a complete set a hijab and an R

00:28:20--> 00:29:01

by R for example. All right, a snow suit, a complete snow suit, not just a jacket, but snow pants also, and winter boots also and socks and mittens and hats. So a complete set. A person who gives that in the way of Allah will be called from the gates of Paradise, and he will be addressed all slaves of Allah. Here his success here is prosperity. So whoever was amongst the people who used to offer their prayers will be called from the gate of the prayer. And whoever was amongst the people who used to participate in Jihad will be called from the gate of jihad, and whoever was amongst those who used to observe fasts will be called from the gates of a urine. Whoever was amongst those

00:29:01--> 00:29:30

who used to give in charity will be called from the gates of charity. Abubakar said, he rasulillah that my parents be sacrificed for you. Will there be anybody who will be called from all gates agenda? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, and I hope that you will be one of them. I hope that you will be one of them, because of ibaka. Although arnoux was always ahead, in doing good, he was very similar to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in his good deeds very similar.

00:29:31--> 00:29:42

And at the end, we see that when the people will be sent agenda, others in hell will clean al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. So this is the end that we should really be working towards
