Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

00:00:14--> 00:00:17

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

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

wa Salatu was Salam

00:00:21--> 00:00:24

ala ashrafi ambia even more serene.

00:00:25--> 00:00:30

Nabina Muhammad in Wilder early he was Sahaba th mine.

00:00:32--> 00:00:38

A llama alumna 9001 signer Bhima Allah lantana.

00:00:39--> 00:00:44

Watch on monitor Nemo Jetta Nana, Elena,

00:00:46--> 00:00:54

we begin with the praise of Allah and by sending Peace and blessings and salutations upon the messenger of a lost love while he will send them

00:00:56--> 00:00:59

upon his family and his companions.

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

And we begin by asking Allah subhanho wa Taala, to teach us that which will benefit us and to benefit us with what he teaches us. And to increase us in knowledge and action, to give us the ability to act upon what we know.

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

The topic today

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

is something that I've been wanting to talk about for quite some time.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

And

00:01:33--> 00:01:39

it's been on my mind to speak about this topic for a number of months.

00:01:40--> 00:02:04

Because I, I meet a lot of people in the in the job that I do in the role that I do accom. And in the course of speaking to people, there is one thing that always surprises me when I hear it, but I hear it increasingly frequently. And that is variations on the theme of I don't sin

00:02:06--> 00:02:30

or reword it as I'm a good Muslim. Or I do, I don't do any major sins, or I don't do much wrong. Or I basically do what I've been told. And all of this is nothing but one of the greatest tricks of the shaytaan. To Bani Adam.

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

And that is the trick of convincing you that you don't say.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

And why does this trick happen?

00:02:41--> 00:02:50

Well, it happens to different people for different reasons. But since the majority of people, I've heard this from a practicing Muslims,

00:02:51--> 00:03:03

it happens because of a particular element of Toby's a beliefs, the tricks of the show time that the shaytan uses to trick practicing people.

00:03:05--> 00:03:15

And that is that if you look out in society today, you find there are people drinking alcohol, and you're not doing that.

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

And there are people committing Zina. And you're not doing that.

00:03:21--> 00:04:04

And there are people worshipping idols, you're not doing that. And there are people who are stealing, and you're not doing that. And there are people killing each other. And you're not doing that. And so the shaytaan tells you the cost, you are not doing one of these five or six limited things. The shaytaan tells you that you don't have many things, or you don't have any sense or that you are practicing in a good strong Muslim, and upon is the karma and Eman And that you're just a few minutes away from taking that final step towards paradise.

00:04:05--> 00:04:15

And this time many this false hope and false belief is one of the greatest tricks have shaped on upon the practicing person.

00:04:16--> 00:04:35

Because you are comparing yourself to people who are doing huge major things in front of your eyes, open fisc open disobedience of Allah and you're looking at yourself and thinking because I don't do what they are doing. Then I'm okay.

00:04:37--> 00:04:47

And I find that the majority of Muslims that I meet from practicing Muslims have a lack of balance when it comes to fear and hope.

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

And we're always talking about hope. We're always talking about how allies so merciful and our last panel to Allah will forgive you analyze the jealous Karim allies generally

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

And he will enter you into Jenna. And you have nothing to worry about. And they tell you the Hadith of the man with the pitaka. And he came with scrolls 99, as far as the eye can see, and the only thing that he had in his hand was a a card or a small piece of paper upon which was written La ilaha illa Allah and that Allah azza wa jal wiped out all of the 99 scrolls and outweighed them all on the scale because of this one thing, and you think Alhamdulillah and then you hear the Hadees, that whoever comes to me, with the world full of sin, and then he comes to me without having made a partner with me, I will come to him with a world of forgiveness. And you feel that Alhamdulillah I'm

00:05:40--> 00:05:58

doing fine. But today, we need to get this balance, right. And I hear this even in the street among people, that when you say to them, yeah, he Subhana Allah, you know, don't do this thing that you're doing. They reply back Allah Karim. Allah is generous, Allah will forgive me.

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

And this is the wrong balance here.

00:06:02--> 00:06:45

It's the wrong balance completely. Yes, a person who is despondent, who is despairing, who doesn't have any hope? Who is drowning in since that they can see in front of their eyes. This person is deserving of relying upon these kinds of heights and building their hope in Allah and developing their hope in the mercy of Allah. Those people who about Allah said about them. Kalia Eva da Alina Asafa and foresee him la takafumi Rahmatullah in Allah hi aku Nova Jamia, see all my slaves who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah Indeed, Allah forgives all sins.

00:06:48--> 00:07:01

So those are people. But the people that I'm addressing this talk today are those people who when it is said to you that you sin day and night, they cannot think of the sins that they do.

00:07:03--> 00:07:30

So what I want to do in this talk today is to open your mind to the concept of sin in Islam. So that we understand that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Indeed, Allah, the human aerated from Allah, that Allah said that indeed you sin in the day and the night, that you see the reality of this statement, because for so many people this statement, it is as though it has no meaning.

00:07:32--> 00:07:37

They say you sin in the day and the night and they say Subhana Allah and he This is some people but not me.

00:07:40--> 00:08:28

And our job and our job. This shocks me when I hear these statements, what's the panel, I've been hearing it so much from people that I thought that just for one lecture, we should remove ourselves from the track of everything being rosy and, and hope and wonderful, and all those things, and talk a little bit about sin. And talk a little bit about just how many sins we do. Even though we are outwardly practicing Muslims. I'm not talking about the one who is drinking alcohol. And watching the Haram and listening to the Haram and eating the Haram and spending the harem and earning the Haram. I'm talking about the person who is praying five times a day in the masjid, who is going when

00:08:28--> 00:09:14

they hear the Adhan the person who is doing their best to uphold what is good and forbid what is evil. The person who is reading the Quran every single day, these are the people that I'm talking about, so that you don't get tricked by this trick of the shaytan, who tells you that you don't have any sin, or that your sins are very limited. And you know, a small SFR is enough, you have to realize the reality of the situation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described us in such a way that indicates that we are constantly disobeying Allah. And so what I want you to do is to kind of come to the realization of why we are constantly disobeying Allah,

00:09:15--> 00:09:42

and what the mistakes people make and the tricks of the shaitaan with regard to this particular point, that lead the shaytaan, to let you rely upon a time and need to rely upon hopes and dreams. And to rely upon the fact that you're praying or the fact that you are not doing three or four or five or six major sins that are very famous in the society. So we need to get out of this idea.

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

So I'm going to deal with it from a number of points.

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

And these points are written from the point of view of the person who

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

is looking at their sins.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

So everyone realizes the importance of

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Mohammed saboten knifes taking yourself to account.

00:10:04--> 00:10:13

So right at the beginning, let's imagine that we sit here today to take ourselves to account for what we do.

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

Has if one full circle, Karbala unto herself, was in one full circle was in Kabbalah and tools and Allah.

00:10:24--> 00:10:28

Okay makalah rhodiola han Amaro De La Hoya and said,

00:10:30--> 00:10:37

Take yourself to account before you take into account and where your deeds before your deeds are wait for you.

00:10:38--> 00:10:51

So a person takes themselves to account. How do you know the shaytan is playing a trick on you. If you take yourself to account and things are looking good, know that the shaitaan is playing this trick on you.

00:10:52--> 00:11:04

If you take yourself to account and you can remember 100 good deeds that you did this week, and you can't remember 200 since then, know that the shaytaan is playing this trick on you.

00:11:05--> 00:11:16

And the shaytan is very clever, different tricks for different people, the one who is doing open sins and recognizes the sins he is doing, what is the shape on say, Allah will never forgive you.

00:11:17--> 00:11:23

You have no hope you're going to jahannam you may as well do it now because you're going to do it anyway.

00:11:24--> 00:11:45

But to the person who is practicing law, the shaitaan does not say this, the shaitaan does not say Allah will not forgive you. Allah will not shaytaan says Alhamdulillah praise Allah that you're in such a good situation, Mashallah so many people outside in the street drinking alcohol and you are not drinking alcohol, Mashallah. And the shaytaan convinces you

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

to rely upon the good deeds that you have.

00:11:51--> 00:12:00

So let's look at this from the point of view of the one who is taking themselves to account and they look at themselves. What is the first mistake that they make?

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

Mistake number one

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

is that they look at the things that they do, rather than the good deeds that they don't do.

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

This is Mistake number one.

00:12:15--> 00:12:21

They look at the sins that they do, rather than the good deeds that they don't do.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

Because sin is of two types.

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

Say I don't, what are we

00:12:28--> 00:12:54

doing something and abandoning something. And what the shape time does is the shaytaan focuses us on the things that we do. And lets us ignore the things that we abandon. So for example, let us just imagine for a second that a person thinks in the last hour, I didn't do anything, for example, that I can think of that was wrong.

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

But what about the things that you didn't do?

00:12:59--> 00:13:07

What about the things you didn't do? What about when you walk past that person who was doing something wrong? And you didn't tell them to stop doing it?

00:13:08--> 00:13:34

What about when your parents were in need and you didn't answer their need? What about the time when your neighbor was expecting for you to knock on the door and ask them how they are and fulfill their rights and you didn't fulfill those rights. Sin is not just about what you do. It's also about what you leave. Leaving a large IP is just as much of a sin as doing a harm

00:13:36--> 00:13:46

to a person may have left any number of the YG but any number of the obligatory deeds. But the shaytaan is only got you focused on what you actually did.

00:13:48--> 00:14:02

So bear in mind that sin is of two types. One what Ark feral harm, was what talk Alhaji doing the harangue and abandoning the Rajiv and both of them are since

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

and the watch is upon you, the more knowledge you have, the greater that burden is.

00:14:12--> 00:14:30

The more knowledge that you have, the greater that burden is, I don't know how many of you attended the hood, where today if you had the same hardware that we had, but the hotel regarding the subpoena regarding the ship, and the example of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave, there are people on top of the ship and people below the ship.

00:14:32--> 00:14:51

So the people below the ship, they are the ones in a bad situation and the people on top They are the ones who are in a good situation. So the people on the bottom, they say we need some water, we will just cut one small hole in the ship. And then we will take the water that we need and it will not harm the people who are above

00:14:52--> 00:14:57

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said so if the people who are above leave them to do it

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

then they will

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

be destroyed.

00:15:02--> 00:15:38

And if they forbid them from doing it, and they will all be saved, quantum higher automatically just enough time morona bill Murphy Watson hona Annie moon kariba took me in when I believe you are the best honor when when you tell the people to do good, and you stop the people from doing evil. And I'm not talking about on a societal level, until about in your own home. You say I didn't back by anyone, but you walked into find your wife backbiting somebody, and you didn't say anything, or you walked into find your children listening to music and you didn't switch it off, or you didn't tell them not to do it.

00:15:39--> 00:16:23

sins are not just what you do, but also what you don't do. So next time you take yourself to account, don't just take yourself to account in what you did. But take yourself to account also in what you didn't do, including fulfilling writes that people have over you. How many times have you promised somebody something? And you didn't fulfill on that promise? How many times have you been in a position where somebody has a right over you, your mom, your father, your children, your wife, your business partner, your neighbor, and you didn't fulfill that right? For every minute that you don't fulfill that right? you're earning sin in the sight of Allah. And yet a person says, I don't

00:16:23--> 00:16:44

think that I did any sense. This is point number one. Don't just think about what you did as an action. But also think about what you didn't do. Every time you left a worship, or every time you had some knowledge and you didn't act upon it. Every time you knew something was the right thing to do, but you didn't do that right thing. That is also a sin.

00:16:45--> 00:16:57

Mistake number two, looking at the sins of the limbs, rather than the sins of the tongue, and looking at the sins of the tongue, rather than the sins of the heart.

00:16:58--> 00:17:12

This is another huge mistake that the shaitaan convinces you to do. he convinces you to look at the sins of the limbs. I didn't touch anything Hold on. I didn't go anywhere haraam.

00:17:13--> 00:17:23

I didn't strike anyone in a way that was hot. Um, I didn't buy or sell anything in her arm. Therefore, I didn't do anything wrong.

00:17:24--> 00:17:37

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to my wife will anything cause the people to be dragged on to the Hellfire on their faces except for the harvest of what their tongue earns?

00:17:39--> 00:17:53

The biggest reason that people will go to jahannam has nothing to do with their limbs and everything to do with this. So as we said, the sins are looking at the sins of the limbs rather than the sins of the tongue.

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

The easiest sins to commit with the grievous penalty or the sins of the tongue.

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

There's no sin that you can commit with your limbs. That is as easy as backbiting, lying, false witness, and so on and so forth. Those are the easiest sins in the world to fall into. And they are sins that people rarely pay attention to. People are rarely aware of. So the person says I didn't steal. I didn't back by Wyden steering committee, Xena, I didn't I didn't worship an idol or whatever. But Subhanallah What about the sins of the tongue? What about backbiting? backbiting is to say about your brother, that which they do not like even if it is true, while it is true. And if it's not true, then it's slander.

00:18:47--> 00:19:03

telling a lie giving false witness spreading wrong information seeing about a law which you do not know some of the scholars considered the worst sin in Islam. What unter kulu Allah Allah him Allah tala mu, that you say about Allah something that you don't know

00:19:04--> 00:19:36

how many of us might fall into this, the Daria who is sitting on the stage giving the talk could fall into this more easily than the people in the audience. Subhan Allah, the sins of the tongue are many and frequent, and we do them all the time without even necessarily realizing that we are doing them. So don't be a person who looks at the sins of the limbs, and doesn't look at the sins of the tongue. The tongue has many, many things that are easy for a person to fall into.

00:19:37--> 00:19:48

Whether it's giving wrong advice or false witness or lying or backbiting or slander, saying about a law what you don't know or any of these other things.

00:19:49--> 00:19:57

These are scenes that are easy to fall into. In fact, they're so easy that many people may not even realize that they are doing them.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Many people may back by

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

And backbite and backbite all day, bearing in mind that backbiting in some narrations is worse than Riba.

00:20:11--> 00:20:14

And I personally backbite all day.

00:20:15--> 00:20:23

And they don't even think about it. They don't even give it the smallest attention.

00:20:24--> 00:20:30

And a person may tell many lies, tiny lies small things, and one after the other after the other.

00:20:31--> 00:20:37

And they tell a lie when they go into the masjid. And they tell a lie when they're coming back. And all they can see as I went, and I prayed,

00:20:38--> 00:20:46

but they don't see that they are telling lies, and that they are saying bad things. Spreading gossip.

00:20:47--> 00:21:05

One of the movie caught the scenes that destroys you from beginning to end, is to say, to spread a rumor about a chest Muslim woman to accuse an innocent Muslim woman of being a bit morally free.

00:21:06--> 00:21:46

Or that you know what I saw her with a guy, I don't know what she was doing this and that or the other. This is from the movie cart, the scenes that destroy you from the inside and the outside. And yet a person may gossip about women or, you know, I don't know what his kids are doing. Who knows what his daughter is doing now, or I don't know, she didn't look like she was good to me. She's probably one of those people. So hon Allah, the simplest thing to do. And it is from the seven worst sins that a person can commit in Islam, the seven mobile cart, along with shirk, and see how and taking the wealth of an orphan and murdering a person the prophets lie Selim in that list, accusing,

00:21:47--> 00:21:52

pious chast Muslim women of committing adultery.

00:21:53--> 00:22:25

So there are huge sins you can commit with your tongue. But there is another thing people do some, some people are a bit more sort of savvy, a bit more aware, they know about their tongue. So they take themselves to account for what their tongue said, and for what their tongue didn't say, remember, because we said that you are taken to account for what you say and what you don't say. I when you do when you refrain from saying something that is wajib you are taken to account. And when you say something haram you are taken to account, but then they ignore the deeds of the heart.

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

And there are many acts of worship that are only done in the heart.

00:22:32--> 00:22:43

What about hoping in Allah, fearing Allah, loving Allah as he deserves to be loved? How many of us have preferred at some time, something over Allah.

00:22:45--> 00:23:28

Allah called you either die or Colima, your ECAM Allah called you to that which will give you life and you heard the event and you preferred something that you were doing over Allah. This preference that you made in the hearts of Hannah law is enough of a sin, that a person again is not aware of. What about fear? A time when you fear something, or someone the fear that is only due to Allah? Or when you are trusting in others instead of trusting in Allah, maybe a person is in debt? And he's thinking, how will I get this person to give me money? How will I ask people for money? How will I get and he's not thinking about a lion. He's not trusting in Allah, the sins of the heart, are more

00:23:28--> 00:24:07

subtle than the sins of the tongue. The sins of the tongue, unfortunately, roll off the tongue like, you know, it's like eating honey. It's very easy, very sweet and very slick. To do. The sins of the heart, the difficulty is they are very subtle. And unless you are really in tune with your heart, you will not be able to easily spot when you fall into Sins of the heart, trusting in other than Allah relying in other than Allah hoping in other than Allah, thinking bad of Allah. Allah is not going to help me. Or I don't know when this answer is going to come. Why is this happening to me, even if you don't see it on your tongue,

00:24:08--> 00:24:20

those are actions of the heart. They are actions of the heart. And the actions of the heart are also take into account even though what you intend in your mind does not take into account

00:24:22--> 00:24:35

because Allah azzawajal has left off this oma those things as long as they do not speak about it. But I'm talking about actions of the heart, not ideas in the mind, an idea in the mind a lie so a gel has forgiven it.

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

But what about actions of the heart when you actually start using your heart to hoping other than Allah or using your heart to have the wrong impression of the wrong idea about our last panel to Allah, this is also a huge thing. So the second mistake that people make is that they look at the sins of the limbs instead of the tongue and they look at the sins of

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

The tongue instead of the heart, rather, the one who is paying attention, takes himself to account with what he has done and what he has not done on his limbs, and with his tongue and in his heart. The third mistake, looking at major sins and ignoring minor sins, or looking at certain major sins and ignoring other major sins. So one of the things a lot of people do is they look at the major sins, but they don't look at the minor sins. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave the example of the minor sins like the tweaks, you put one twig on top of another on top of another before long you have a burning Blaze. And some of the self said Rahim Allah they said, there is no

00:25:49--> 00:25:53

small sin, if it is done without care.

00:25:55--> 00:26:02

Meaning if you commit a small sin without carrying, it is automatically upgraded to a major thing.

00:26:04--> 00:26:07

So let's say for example, staying apart word swearing,

00:26:09--> 00:26:52

and inshallah This is from the the minus ins not from those things that are lies or gel said we go to the Hellfire, but it is from the the minus in saying a bad word. But if a person does this day after day after day and doesn't care about it, it is upgraded to the major sin, not because of itself, but because you don't care that you're doing it, it is upgraded to a major sin. So how many of us have minor sins that are being upgraded every day two major sins and we don't even realize and then we read those people who avoid the major sins and we think Subhana Allah, we affirm them. But we don't realize how many of our minor sins are getting an upgrade to become major since.

00:26:53--> 00:27:04

And small things we are doing. They are very small, but they're getting upgrades. And the other thing is sins that people think are small, but they are actually major sins.

00:27:05--> 00:27:32

In Houma UI, Viva one UI Viva and if you can view the prophets I saw them said about okemah cada sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said about two people in their graves, they are being punished in their graves, and they are not being punished for something major. The scholars of Islam, they said the meaning of they are not being punished for something major is that they are not being punished for something people think is a major sin.

00:27:33--> 00:27:46

But in the sight of Allah is a major sin. As for one of them, he did not clean himself properly from urine when going to the bathroom. And as for the other, he used to go around spreading gossip.

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

Making people dislike one another because of gossip.

00:27:52--> 00:28:40

They were being punished and not for something people consider to be a major sin. They thought it was a minor sin, it was forgiven by their prayer and they still fall and they're hedging their armor and they thought they were forgiven for it and they were punished in a major way because they thought it was small and a lot So Joe considered it to be big. So this is another mistake which is the mistake of looking at the major sins and ignoring the minor sins, or looking at some of the major sins and ignoring other major sins that perhaps people don't think are severe. From this I would also add getting your sins in mixed up order. He knows to pile I know many parents if their

00:28:40--> 00:28:45

child came home carrying a bottle of alcohol they would come down on him like a ton of bricks

00:28:47--> 00:29:26

grounded take it off him scream hit shout whatever. But he comes home knowing they know find well that he did not pray answer prayer and they don't care. The answer prayer that when you miss it, it takes you outside of Islam and actually been an hour Dana who's Salah from Antarctica Alpha Kappa. The difference between us and them is the prayer The one who leaves the prayer has disbelieved. Subhana Allah, what a difference. A man was drinking alcohol the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said do not cursed him because he loves Allah, his messenger and a person misses the answer. He says For God Kapha he has left Islam.

00:29:28--> 00:30:00

So hon Allah Do not confuse the big sins and the biggest sins. Drinking alcohol is a huge sin. And it is enough of a sin because it prevents you from the prayer in the first place. But let's not confuse the two people see their sons and their daughters committing shirk and they don't mind as long as they don't have a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And this is all mixed up. We have got these sins all mixed up. When you talk about the major sins, some of them are not all at the same

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

level, the worst is to make a partner with Allah. And then among the worst after that is the sin of innovation. And likewise, the sins of major, the sins of minor should check that does not reach the level of major shift. And then you have, like the sins of being bad to the parents and so on and so forth. How many times this being bad to parents, we don't even think about it.

00:30:22--> 00:31:04

We don't even consider it to be among the major sins yet Allah azza wa jal mentioned it along with his right to be worshipped alone. So we have to get the order of the sins, right. I'm not saying to anyone that if your children are doing these bad things, you should just leave it. But don't mix the things up. Don't consider that it's okay that they don't pray. And it's okay that they don't fast. And it's okay that the sister doesn't wear hijab, but it's not okay that she does x y Zed. Don't let cultural ideas cloud your concept of sin in Islam. In Islam, the sins have a clear order, some are worse than others. So until you get that order correct in your mind, the fear is that you're going

00:31:04--> 00:31:08

to take a major sin too lightly when you do it, or when someone else does it.

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

The next mistake,

00:31:15--> 00:31:22

looking at things that are directly around you, and not those that you are responsible for elsewhere.

00:31:23--> 00:31:46

So a person looks at themselves and says, right, I've taken everything you've said on board. I'm now worried about what I do and what I don't do. And I'm worried about my limbs and my tongue and my heart. And I'm also conscious of the minor sins, and I'm conscious of the major sins in the correct order. And I still find that 100 I'm doing okay. So you're only looking at the sins that are

00:31:47--> 00:32:27

within arm's reach? What about the wrong information that you gave somebody, and they are acting upon it? What about the bad example that you set, and until this day, around the world, people are copying that example from you, because they saw you doing it, or your children are copying that example from you, because they saw you doing it. Every time someone copies that example, you get a sin, you get the same sin as them doing it. Whoever sets a bad example, will have the sin of it, and the sin of everyone who acts upon it until the day of judgment, without their sin being decreased in anything.

00:32:28--> 00:32:44

So maybe you said a word. And from that word, people around you and around you, especially in the age of social networking. You write one word on Facebook, one word on Twitter, and that word can earn you millions of sins in a minute.

00:32:45--> 00:32:53

You tell a lie and the lie reaches 100 million people in less time than it took you to write this sentence.

00:32:54--> 00:33:21

You say something that is a bad example, and people copy it and repost it and retweet it and resend it and re copy it and email it and share it. How many sins are people earning? And people also think and I will just add this as another point just while it comes into my mind. They think that sins are only in doing bad things. And they forget that you can earn sins in doing good things the wrong way.

00:33:22--> 00:33:30

People think that sins are only in doing bad things. And yet you can earn a sin by doing good things the wrong way, such as bit

00:33:32--> 00:33:48

what your allies are justly about the worst losers in this world. Cool Halloween Happy Halloween happy Bo Campbell x arena Amara, shall we tell you about the worst of the people in loss? Allah Vina bol la fille hierarchy dunia

00:33:49--> 00:33:49

una,

00:33:50--> 00:34:00

una una. They are the people who lost all of their deeds in this world, but they thought they were doing the best deeds. In our best city, other people have innovation, the other people have the hard edge.

00:34:02--> 00:34:26

So hon Allah these people think that their prayer is getting them near to Allah and that prayer is taking them further away from Allah. So it's not only that you are doing bad, but also that you are doing good in the wrong way. And this brings me to a hot topic, which is sending out religious instructions and WhatsApp messages to people without in

00:34:27--> 00:34:54

and will lie I think this is one of the major earners have sin among practicing Muslims today. And that is sending out WhatsApp messages. I get loads of them. And a large number of the ones that I get are fabricated ahaadeeth week ahaadeeth false principles, badly written, missing conditions, so many things. The person you know, we're living in a cut and paste Google said it's halaal Bismillah.

00:34:55--> 00:34:58

And a shisha Google. My shape is Google

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

They post and retweet, and you see ya you said a fabricated Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man kether Allah yamata me then Talia turbo Mama.

00:35:10--> 00:35:24

Whoever tells a lie about me deliberately let him take his seat in hell about the one who narrates the fabricated Heidi's a major, major sin that you pass on a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say,

00:35:25--> 00:36:06

Allah, this terrifies me. Because Likewise, when you're giving talks Hadees come in your mind and you see them sometimes Subhan Allah, maybe you make a mistake. And at least if you take yourself to account for it, and you listen to the audio, that's why I started now listening to my audio afterwards, before I posted online, maybe I can just reduce this sin to a minimum, but how many people just share the person who sends out these messages that if you send it to 10 people, you will be successful? In the end, will it be for holy Allah, does he have the knowledge of the unseen, so he can see, has he taken a promise from Allah, that Allah Subhana Allah how much of a sin it is that

00:36:06--> 00:36:12

people send these things? See Subhana Allah 10,000 times, and the angels will carry you to paradise.

00:36:13--> 00:36:50

Who told you this? So hon Allah, this is enough of a sin for a person to say something about a law of the religion of a law that is not true. And then they forward it, and they forward it and they forward it. And so you're only looking at the sin in front of you and thinking Alhamdulillah I didn't do any sin. But Subhana Allah while you are sleeping, they are, they are building up, because people are implementing these false ideas and these false ways based on information you gave them. So my advice to those people who send out WhatsApp messages, restrict yourself in Hadeeth to Buhari and Muslim in the beginning,

00:36:51--> 00:37:22

until you become confident in the science of Hadith. And then those are Hadith that the scholars of Islam have clearly declared to be authentic, such as those who check Allah Danny declared to be authentic and sincere. And likewise, these ones inshallah you can share it with me later, and you have an evidence for sharing them. But as for opening Muslim, Imam Ahmed, almost unknown, even Abby Shiva, and picking a random Hadith and sharing it with the people. So Pamela, you could be sharing a fabrication or a lie, you could be sharing something that is earning you a huge sin.

00:37:26--> 00:38:08

Likewise, from the sins that people are not aware of, is that people look at personal things, rather than sins that relate to oppression of others. What do I mean by personal sense, they look at things that they are doing to themselves, lumen naps, will miss three types vein that Allah as our gel will never forgive if you die without seeking forgiveness. And that is making a partner with a lot of women that Allah will never abandon. If you do not seek forgiveness from the person or make it up to the person, and that is the oppression you do to somebody else. And then there is one that Allah will forgive and overlook, and that is the room that you do to yourself. So when you're taking

00:38:08--> 00:38:51

yourself to account so many people are only taking themselves to account on voluminous, personal things, they are not taking themselves to account on the room they did to the person on the road with their car, or the thing that they did to the to their parents, or to their brothers or to their sisters, or them that they did to their neighbors, they're not taking any of this to account, they're only looking at what is within their direct reach, what is their personal things that they themselves are doing to themselves, and they're not looking at what they are also doing to other people. And my last point is presuming sincerity, and acceptance in everything that you do, this is

00:38:51--> 00:39:21

for me a major error. So a person says, Look, I've taken everything on board, but I still find 111 I'm you know, I'm more right? We say Subhan Allah, do you have an agreement from a law that your deeds have been accepted that your prayer was accepted that your fasting was accepted that your Dharma was accepted? To have an agreement from our law for this? You don't have a guarantee? The scholars of the past used to be so scared over their intention. Sofia

00:39:22--> 00:39:41

rahima Hello to Allah said I have not wrestled with anything harder than my intention. And we come and we do not even represent the knowledge that was in the little finger of Sophia. And we come and say Alhamdulillah I've got intention sorted. My intention is sincere.

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

My heart is sincere. My intention is sincere. Who am I?

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

Who told you that your sense that your intention is sincere? Who told you that your heart is sincere so that you can take a guarantee from a law that your heart is sincere and your intention is sincere? Can it's not like this

00:40:01--> 00:40:25

You don't have a guarantee that those deeds have been accepted. And if sincerity is not guaranteed, then likewise your Mourtada your following of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how do you know that in that prayer you prayed, you did not oppose the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in something, or that you are not doing a bid, which you think is the most beloved de to Allah, and it is earning you sin after sin after sin

00:40:26--> 00:40:43

Subhana Allah. So we should not be fooled by the tricks of the shaytaan. But there is one more thing that I wanted to add, just for if there are still any people who are left wondering about this issue of sin. Let's just imagine that you had a sinless day.

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

a seamless day.

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

You didn't oppress anybody.

00:40:50--> 00:40:51

You didn't oppress yourself.

00:40:53--> 00:41:06

You didn't have any sins that were done outside of your direct sort of knowledge, we're done because of you. You commanded the good in everything you saw, and you forbade the evil in everything that you saw.

00:41:09--> 00:41:53

And you fulfilled your obligations, and you avoided the harm and every point that we mentioned, what would be obligatory upon you, to thank Allah. And if you didn't thank Allah, then that would be sinful. So Subhana Allah, we come back again to the fact that maybe you are having days when you're doing very well. But are you thanking Allah as he deserves to be thanked for those days? Because if you're not thanking Allah, in the way that he deserves, then you are sinful. And it's enough of a sin for you to be ungrateful towards Allah. Maybe you know that the word katha the origin of the word cafard is ungratefulness. The word caffeine in the Arabic language before the meet the meaning

00:41:53--> 00:41:57

of disbeliever, the author of the word caffeine is someone who is ungrateful.

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

cofra Naima

00:42:02--> 00:42:18

woman Kapha in Nola, honey June on an island mean, whoever is ungrateful, I whoever Kappa he is ungrateful, he disbelieves and he is ungrateful, then Allah has no need. Allah is rich and has no needed any one among you among the servants of Allah.

00:42:19--> 00:42:48

Just think of all the blessings that are lies that he gave you. Are you really thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala for all of those blessings in the way that he deserves to be thanked? are you really doing enough to make for your eyesight, and your breath and your heartbeat, and your family and your wealth and your safety? Are you really thanking Allah azza wa jal for all of those things? You can't be because Allah azza wa jal said that if you try to count the blessings of Allah, you would not be able to count them.

00:42:49--> 00:43:01

So you can't possibly be thanking Allah in the way that he deserves to be thanked. So now we've come to the conclusion Aquinas that when we look at these things, we see that scene is a very serious thing.

00:43:02--> 00:43:30

And we don't want you to get down and depressed we don't want you to feel like I'm done for law breakers. Now we come to the point of hope. But we want you to be realistic about where you are in the picture of sin. Not that you think that Alhamdulillah I'm praying five times a day and you know, I am a bit religious, as they say. And you see the more knowledge you get, the more Allah will take you to account for the knowledge that you have.

00:43:31--> 00:43:46

So if anything your religious ness is only increasing your exposure to sin from a certain angle, even if it is reducing it from another angle. The reality is that Allah azza wa jal created us with sin in our nature.

00:43:47--> 00:44:13

And He created us knowing that we would send that if we did not sin, He would replace us with the people who would sin so that he could forgive us so that we could repent to him and he could forgive us. So the key to this equation is constant repentance. Our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to seek forgiveness from our law 100 times a day.

00:44:14--> 00:44:19

The one who all of his past and present sins and pre future sins were forgiven.

00:44:21--> 00:44:27

The one who had no major sins at all, the one who never did a minor sin deliberately.

00:44:30--> 00:44:33

And yet he used to say 100 times a day.

00:44:36--> 00:44:46

He had not one major thing. He never deliberately did any minor sin and he never continued doing a minor sin after Allah revealed that it was a sin.

00:44:49--> 00:44:53

panela and yet 100 times a day he said a stock Allah.

00:44:54--> 00:44:56

I seek Allah's forgiveness

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Han Allah

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

Where are we from this? If we Subhan Allah see the companions who were promised Jenna crying and asking Allah to forgive them we see that I'm on top of the Allahu and said to her they fell, or they did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam include me from the Manasa clean.

00:45:22--> 00:45:32

This is about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Tell me to come in. Well, there should have been gender and give him glad tidings of Paradise

00:45:34--> 00:45:37

and almost said Did he consider me to be from them when FFT?

00:45:39--> 00:45:49

Yanni Omar was scared so much of his sins that he thought he might be a monastic? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about Omar that he is going to Jenna.

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

Where are we?

00:45:53--> 00:45:59

At for me? namakkal Allah? Do they feel safe that the ally is not going to plan something against them?

00:46:03--> 00:46:04

And I am no makalah

00:46:06--> 00:46:10

nobody feel safe from the plan of ally except the losing people.

00:46:12--> 00:46:20

Never ever feel that I am on my way and I'm just a hands You know, there's nothing between me and paradise except death.

00:46:21--> 00:46:34

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to see their sins like mountains that were above their head, like Bani Israel when a light rays that tool above them and threaten to smash it upon them.

00:46:36--> 00:46:45

And they used to consider that the person who has been fooled by the shaytaan sees his sins like a fly, just brush it away, nevermind.

00:46:46--> 00:47:25

So we should take our sins seriously. And we should realize that we are in a state of disobedience to Allah in the night and in the day. And we should not think because we sat here today, and we didn't say anything that we didn't earn some sense. Maybe there are some sins being earned for us outside of this tent. Maybe some of the words that I said were not in the way that they should have been set up to keep on asking yourself doubting yourself checking yourself, taking yourself to account because you can give yourself as many mock exams as you like. But you only have one real exam and if you fail it, there is only johannah. There is no reset.

00:47:26--> 00:47:45

So you should really seriously take your sins really seriously. And the more religious you are, the more seriously you should take it. Don't think that because you came from a point of being not practicing to being practicing that. This means that you are getting out of sin. It just means the shade pine is making for you a whole new

00:47:46--> 00:48:15

set of students that you can commit from this is a very beautiful book Toby's at least the tricks of the shape. Hi, everyone. Josie Rahim Allah Allah regarding the way that the shade time tricks people in different phases of their life. So the shaitaan doesn't come to the scholar and say fornicate because he knows the scholar is not going to find a gate. He comes to the scholar and says,

00:48:16--> 00:48:32

read your books, we don't go to the masjid or he comes to the scholar and says make the statement even though you don't have knowledge about it when it comes to the scholar and make some innovation beautiful to him so that he falls into it. Or he makes the scholar leave his family and focus upon teaching

00:48:34--> 00:48:39

at Chez Panisse doesn't stop every time you change he will also change with you.

00:48:40--> 00:48:50

So accept the way that Eliza gel has created you and take the cure. And the cure is very very simple. Yeah, honey, I just checked that is we're not at the time of the hour that nobody heard the answer.

00:48:55--> 00:49:00

One time now not on his 20 Pathak 20 per state. What time is it now?

00:49:02--> 00:49:03

Then there is time then there is 10 minutes.

00:49:14--> 00:49:14

So

00:49:16--> 00:49:16

what is the cure?

00:49:18--> 00:49:21

The first cure is recognition.

00:49:22--> 00:49:29

The first thing you need to do is recognize your state in Islam. Don't worry about the good deeds you've done.

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

Good deeds will not be lost.

00:49:35--> 00:49:56

What Elijah just said whatever they do a good It will not be left ungrateful. Any ally soldier will not lose the good that you've taught. Don't worry about that. You're not going to lose any good that you've done. focus upon the bad things. recognize what you're doing. And that's not a one time action. That's a constant action.

00:49:57--> 00:50:00

Recognize fix it shape, time will open

00:50:00--> 00:50:14

A new thing for you, your neffs will go off on one side. And, again, recognize, fix it recognize, fix it, it's a constant process, not a one time, not a one time journey. It's a constant process

00:50:15--> 00:50:18

of taking yourself to account and recognizing

00:50:19--> 00:50:22

numbers number two, seek the forgiveness of Allah.

00:50:24--> 00:50:31

For example, say a stellar funeral la alima de la ilaha illa who and how you will die you will add to

00:50:33--> 00:50:44

the thing which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned is the greatest of among the greatest of means of seeking is the one

00:50:45--> 00:51:13

but when you say is that far, make sure that you have three key things. And I mentioned these before Past, Present future. In the past, you really regret what you've done. You don't look and think also Pinilla I underrated, a fabricated Hadeeth Muslim do that next time you really feel regret, you really feel sad for it, you feel so much hatred for it, like you would feel to be thrown into Johanna.

00:51:14--> 00:51:25

Number two, you stop doing it in the present, it's no good thing I stole federal law. And then you have not changed the steps to stop you doing the thing.

00:51:27--> 00:51:27

Change it.

00:51:29--> 00:51:34

And number three, intend in the future, never ever to do it again.

00:51:37--> 00:52:20

Number four, which is which is conditional. If you have harmed anyone by that sin, then make sure you do your very best to make it up either by making to offer them asking their forgiveness, correcting the mistake giving back what you took, whatever it may be, but you make up for for what you did you make up to them for what you did. And you intend never ever to do it again in the future. And you're constantly only looking at the sense. When do you look at the good deeds, when you become in a state of despair, when you start thinking I don't have any good deeds, and I've got too many sins, and I'm just gonna go straight to jahannam then no, now we change our methodology.

00:52:20--> 00:52:30

Now you worry less about the sins and you start looking at all the good deeds, and you feel a little bit happy again and you get a balance. A Muslim should be balanced between fear and hope.

00:52:33--> 00:53:22

They call upon the Lord. How fun wautoma how often in fear Tama in hope, that is how we should be a balance between fear and hope, not in the state where we are in constant fear, but also not in the state where we're in constant hope, rather in a state where we fear for our sins, and we hope in the mercy of a lie soldier. So inshallah that is just a reminder to myself and to you. For those people who sometimes maybe hear a little bit too many feel good talks and a little bit too much, get a little bit too much confidence in their own good deeds, and sort of remind ourselves just how many sins we actually do. And how many promises we break and how many times we fall short in our religion

00:53:23--> 00:53:25

and our promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:53:28--> 00:53:34

And for us to take some steps to correct that, and recognize that you're never going to stop sinning.

00:53:36--> 00:53:49

But you can make life a lot better for yourself by recognizing when it's happening, and seeking our last forgiveness for it. And that's just one sort of little tip I'll share at the end. Be in touch with your heart.

00:53:51--> 00:54:07

Recognize the effects of sin upon your heart. Sin has an effect upon the heart, a black dot appears upon the heart. And if you keep on sinning without repentance, the heart becomes completely black, and it becomes totally sealed.

00:54:09--> 00:54:11

But you can feel

00:54:13--> 00:54:27

you can feel these black dots being drawn on your heart. If you're in tune with yourself, you can recognize you might not recognize the exact moment when it happens. But you can see the effects of sin in your life.

00:54:28--> 00:54:32

If you're feeling yourself getting heavy,

00:54:33--> 00:55:00

feeling like it's just not you're not connected in your prayer, feeling distant from Allah subhanho wa Taala feeling like you're you're carrying a great weight around with you. Maybe just feeling a little bit down and a little bit disheartened. And in many times, this is the result of sin. And I can't quite give you a perfect formula for this, but just start to recognize what

00:55:00--> 00:55:27

Scene feels like and what tober feels like, start to feel it when what scene feels like you might not recognize every individual sin. But you recognize the panel like what I'm doing late for Salah, and I'm going late for Salah because I'm doing some sins, there's some things I'm doing that are causing me to be late for my prayer. And it's causing me to be distracted in my prayer. I'm not sure what they are yet, but this is a time for Toba.

00:55:28--> 00:56:08

Be in touch with yourself. Recognize when you are having symptoms of sin. When you can feel it on your heart, you can see it in your limbs, you can see it in your family, you can see your sin in your family, in your house in your writing this and you can see the effects of sin in things around you. If you start to feel that this is because of your sin and you're sinning, then take the steps needed to feel lighter. And when you've made Toba and you feel how that feels to repent and you feel a little bit lighter, then you start to recognize when it feels like you're doing sins. And when it feels like that you are repenting. And you don't rely upon that. But it's just another sort of a

00:56:08--> 00:56:35

little a little tip. And also another tip is to get into the habit of real time is default. Don't wait till it's default until the end of the day. Don't leave your SFR until after failure or after model. But as soon as you recognize you might have done something wrong, stop. And they just take a little I like some people do their backbiting and in the middle of the conversation about biters stuffed full of backbiting, but

00:56:36--> 00:56:38

not like this stop.

00:56:39--> 00:57:02

And just think of the gravity of that sin. What about if you were one of the people on earth, when your good deeds and your evil deeds are exactly equal?
