Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam said Aquila, Benny, Adam Fatah, or Kira el Hapa, in a boon is that every single human being not just makes mistakes. This is a beautiful way that he phrased it constantly screws up constantly, repeatedly, time and time again, makes mistakes. And that the best of those people who constantly makes mistakes, which is all of us, are the people who repent. The Prophet Muhammad SAW, I said, I was teaching us some very important spiritual lessons here, first of all, that the nature of our existence is messing up and making mistakes. And this is good because it saves us from perfectionism. And if we are under the delusion that we can be perfect, then really
what we're doing is trying to trick other people and hide our mistakes from other people, not in a praiseworthy way, in a way where we're lying, where we're putting on airs, where we're trying to seem more pious than we are. And maybe we even convince ourselves that we're Masha Allah, sinless. That's a mistake. And then the second thing, the Prophet salallahu Salam is showing us that our life is going to have to revolve around not simply avoiding mistakes, which nobody can do, but trying to fix them. Once we make them. That's more important. How do you fix them once you make them? You have to repent, repenting to Allah. That's the most important one. And if it involves somebody else's
rights, or you did something that affected somebody else, yeah. Repenting to them too, and asking them for forgiveness and trying to fix the problem.
