Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. Tonight's name is tawa. Allah subhanaw. Taala is a tow a tow guava means the one who turns but what is meant by the name is that ALLAH turns to the people by accepting their repentance by accepting their apologies. When they say that they're sorry, when they say that they've made a mistake when they admit that they were wrong and they vow, they decide, You know what, I'm going to change, I'm going to be different. I'm going to take control of my life and live the way that Allah wants me to live. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, he told us an amazing Hadith. It's an example about how Allah is a tau Webb, about how easily and quickly he turns
to us in forgiveness. He compared it to somebody who was travelling in the desert.
Okay, and this person traveling in the desert, if you know the desert, it's very hot, and it's very dry. And people even today, they traveled through the desert on camel. They use camels because camels are a miraculous creature that they're specially made for the desert, they can go for a long time, and they don't need to eat or drink anything for a long time. And so imagine there's somebody who's traveling through the desert with their camel on the camel. He has all that he needs his water, his food, his tent, etc. And then what if, when he lies down to take a rest of the camel runs away.
Imagine how upset how scared how afraid he would be. If he doesn't find that camel, he's going to die in the desert. He's going to probably starve to death. He's not going to have enough water and all these horrible things.
Then imagine this is the example the prophesy said on gave that imagine that the camels suddenly shows up out of nowhere, just when the person had given up all hope. And they were crying and they were laying down thinking that they were going to die. Imagine that the camel just walks right up out of nowhere and sits right down next to the man. Imagine how happy he would be grabbing the camel and hugging him and you know, thanking Allah.
So after the Prophet SAW sent him he gave us example he said that Allah is happier than this man finding his camel.
When a person says they're sorry, to Allah,
and decides that they want to change
the laws found to Allah, he's not going to hold a grudge against you. He's not going to turn you away.
If you've done bad things, if you've made bad decisions, if you have not been your best self,
all it takes is one moment to decide, You know what? I'm going to change. I'm going to stop. You turn to Allah and in that moment, Allah Spano Tata is a tow up, he's going to turn to you guaranteed. He's going to accept your forgiveness, forgiveness. He's going to take you in once again. And he's going to be so happy happier than that man who found his last candle. That's because a lot is a tow. And that's all for tonight. I said I'm on eco murottal
