Allah subhana wa tada said boulia eva da Latina, a Salafi
forcing him la takanobu mattina
in La Jolla, Uber Jeremy,
this verse in sort of zoom out of verse 53, Allah subhanaw taala making a call to all of us, especially those among us who have committed so many sins in their lives and their life. Those who have done so much wrong and so many sons and they see their disobedience to Allah subhana wa tada
in every day of their life, being ungrateful and think I'm thankful to Allah subhana wa tada not responding to the call of Allah subhana wa tada I'm fulfilling the obligations, doing the hot arms, which is something we all share we in a different level, but we all share some parts of that. Allah subhanho wa Taala calling upon all of us saying, Do not ever give up hope in a law or on the laws mercy as a lot the one who forgives all sins because he is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful.
Today I would like to speak to you about repentance. October in a lot. Repentance is one of the most beloved active for shift to our Lord. One of the thing that Allah loves the most to see from his servant. One of the things that Teddy word for the most one of the names of Allah that He is the one who accepts the one who guide to repentance, apparently without it. Yeah, and the lady yep by the toe baton evadne.
What awaba Rahim is the Most Merciful, the one who guide and accept the repentance of those who repent to him. It is one of the most valuable actor for ship, because it Toba, there is a true representation to the meaning of servitude in the job if you had to be a man to hit the law. Why? Because when you repent to Allah, you're obviously admitting and recognizing a smart who will suffer to his qualities, you recognizing that Allah one of his quality, the tears, the Most Merciful, the most forgiving, the one who will forgive you, the one who won't accept you. So that's recognizing his qualities. Also, in the same time, you repented to him because you know that by disobeying him,
you exposing yourself to his punishment found to me no matter what form of filati What if kabhi subhana wa Taala that's why you avoid making him anger angry at you, or being
beat or punishing you for your son. Also, in the same time, you know that by committing a sin, you have disobeyed your Lord. And as a believer, you're supposed to obey Him, when my mother in law to handle a bad day and to free the law, hubby reality, that you worship Allah alone, and worship means obedience. So if you disobey Him, you see that you have not fulfilled your duty as a as a believer by by obeying Allah Subhana without so when you repent you
velvet meaning which is the Buddha the servitude of Allah azza wa jal and in the same time, took me noburo Buddha to recognize that he is your Lord. There is no way out of his world. There is no way away from him except through him.
Everyone you feel you run away from? But Allah Subhana Allah is the only thing that when you fear you run to
that's the who is the only one like that. Man hoffa, who hora de la subhana wa Taala it is the most valuable act of forgiving Islam repentance, because it's a bad attachment obey an amateur.
It's an act of worship that combined between the act or the actions of the heart and the actions of the limbs and abuse and allow to sell themselves. Another matoba regret, it's in itself a repentance or a form of repentance. When you regret your sins. When you feel bad about what you have done wrong. That's in itself, a repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Yeah, you had Latina amanu tubu illa he Tolbert Anna Sudha wilhelma saw her in llama Anna haha Lisa. It means that your heart in your heart when you repent to Allah, you do it sincerely that sincerity. It's in the eye. It's the action of the heart. But in the same times Toba is not just the feelings.
It's beyond that. That's why Allah Subhana Allah said in taba Amina, I'm alongside her. And he said, We're in nivola photo lemon tabouleh Amira, Sania lemon tabouleh Armando Camila sauropod that Allah subhana wa tada says, that I the forgiveness and the acceptance of forgiveness or my forgiveness will be given to those who repent to me, and do good deeds, and act good. So one of the conditions of the Toba is that you follow your repentance with the change, of course, you change the course of your life, you start doing the right things. It is one of the most beloved detail Allah subhana wa tada as he himself told us through His Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, that Allah
when he sees one of his servant, repent to him, one of his servant repentance, that you will be so happy with that person's repentance, more than a person traveling in the desert, lost his camel last, and on the top of his camels, his food and his drinks, basically the means of surviving, he lost all that I need, basically, a man by himself in the desert can imagine.
Then the profits of Southern said that person well
basically, know for sure that he is going to die. So you went to the shade of a tree waiting for death. There's no way to survive.
Even took a nap. And when he woke up, he found his camel just right next to him with the food and drink and everything. He was so happy. He was so excited. That out of excitement, he said, Oh Allah, you are my servant, and I'm your Lord. He made a mistake. He was so happy, so excited. Can you imagine how much excitement this person had that time how happy that person is. The Prophet said, Allah is more happy is more happy than that person.
When your servant comes back, because you have saved yourself from the Hellfire, you saved yourself from the punishment of your Lord. So this hadith shows us that this is something that the love dare so much and love so much and appreciate so much. I tell my my brothers and sisters, here B diet to higher and higher to higher repentance. It's a new beginning. And it's a new life. But also it's an end of another life.
It's a new start, you opening a new page with your Lord. But in the same times you turn in basically
one page of your life, something that you're not proud of. It's a change, that real change happened to you in your life. And it is the beginning with guidance and the end of misguidance it's the beginning of purity and the end of impurity. It's the beginning of the love of Allah subhana wa tada and ending what's making a loss of Hannah to Allah is angry at you, a Toba it's like in a person who repent to Allah, like a newborn person. And one of the biggest Stover the biggest repentance
You can make is to repent from kofoed from shirk, to repent from disbelieving in Allah, repenting from worshiping other than Allah. That's That's why when someone come to declare his Islam and said today I'm starting a new page in my life, you know what I will accept the laws My Lord, I will accept his religion as my religion. Not any more that I basically don't give a law, his rights. That's the highest form of doba and I'm happy to hear that today. We have someone a sister today, well declare her Shahada after the or someone will declare his Islam after the class or after
you sell them to
a set kulu Benny Adam hapa mahalo hapa in a tower boon, reported by tirmidhi all human beings commit sins.
But the best of you are the one who repents to Allah. Yeah, anybody in the country do not be lazy when not my servant, you commit sins day and night.
And I forgive all sins, so seek my forgiveness and are granted to you. In the law. Absolutely. There will be laelia tuber mercy on the hub website will be gnarly.
Every day a lot in the beginning of the day in the morning, he stretched his hand to welcome those who repent to him from the sense that they committed in the night. And in the nighttime, he stretched his hand to welcome those who repent to him from the sense that he committed during the daytime every single day never get bored. Never said this too much. Never said What's wrong with you, I just you know, except that you in the morning and now you're coming back again. Or that was last week or that never as long as you sincere about as long as you fulfill this condition.
It's ironic that both of them committed a sin into heaven. Adam when he ate from the tree, and the Satan beliefs when he refused to prostrate himself before Adam and refused the order of Allah. But they both equally sin.
But the result was not equal. Adam repented to Allah. Tanaka de Muro de kalimat fatale. He admitted to his Lord his mistakes, he said some Hannukah in new come to me navali mean I wrong myself by this obeying you your law. That's why are them alike said that his repentance and forgiveness, but beliefs about stackable is arrogant. He just insisted to go on with his sin and to refuse to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala you're a son of Adam.
Follow your father footsteps. Don't be like the chiffon who who refuse to repent. Don't be like the Satan who said no. Be like your father Adam and his Sarah who admitted his mistakes. And the scholar said it has to meet six conditions. Number one, it has to be done on the right time. And the right time for us. It's before you you basically you die. That's why the prophet SAW Selim said when the soul about to depart from the body, that's not the time of Toba. That's not the time to repent. When you see the angels collecting yourself. That's another one the time you say, Oh, I had a pinch now.
dupa Bella Tobin.
salatu salam. That's why Pharaoh when he said I believed in Moosa and his god, what is not accepted from him when he so death.
And number two, also, there is another condition in regard to timing, which is to all humanity the process of them said, You must repent a lot before the sunrise from the west, which is the end of the day. Number two, the test to be sincere.
You know, I repented to Allah subhana wa tada from cheating. No, not because I'm worried about being caught or being audited by the IRS. You know, I repent a lot from using drugs, not because I'm worried about my health. I repent a lot from drinking alcohol, not because I'm worried about my liver.
I'm doing this because I'm worried about my alcohol, my relationship with Allah.
You know, sugar dependent must be done sincerely.
You do it for Allah subhanaw taala not for someone else. Not because your wife caught you.
Not because you do this. You know, I'm doing this for my family. Now you're doing for a law.
Also, number three, that you do
When you repent a lot to quit, so no, make no sense. You said, I'm going to quit. And I'm going to pintle off from using drugs, and you stole you know what having the, the drugs into your in your pocket and you still using it, that's not repentance
is not acceptable, you know, you can say I repent a lot from lying and you keep lying, you can say I'm repentant, a lot from bullying other than hurting others. And he's still doing that. I've bent a lot from harming others, and he's still planning to do it, you know, and so on. Also, number three, which is number four, which is a very interesting point, the scholar said, they saw that you have the intention not to go back to that sin.
See what they said, they said, you have the intention not to go back well as them either mill out, you have a true intention, I will not do it. But again, but let's say is quiet, I stopped drinking, I stopped consuming, I stopped doing what is hot. And I sincerely don't want to do that again.
But you know what I came, I became weak, and I fall into the sin again.
This repentance is acceptable.
But what's not acceptable, that, for example, you go to places or you watch things which is hot on like, in Islam, it's forbidden to watch pornography in, you know, what you should watch these online. And you said, I repent a lot, but you have all the links saved in your, in your computer, or in your cell phone and all these pictures, and you planning you know, to take your session tonight to in a, you know, in a call or whatever format that you do, that you have the intention to go back to. But you know what I deleted it, I I put, you know, I made a commitment, I will not do that I take all the steps, but I became weak later I fall into the sin again. Your first repentance
acceptable, and you need to do another one. That's why Allah says, I will accept you as long as you repent to me. Number five, the scholar said that you regret the sin. It's not like someone you know what a good time really, in Las Vegas last week, you know, that's not regretting the sin. That's enjoying it.
I saw a guy once was telling me, showing me a picture of him when he was young, about things was not appropriate.
And he said, Oh, Chef, look at the old good days. I said, that's all good days. That's
gonna tell you what I said. So you can figure it out. So that person really not regretting would regret it what he did in his past.
or a sister, she used to wear clothes, which is not a perfect clothes as a Muslim. I said, oh, look how beautiful it used to be how to do this. It's not about the look, it's about, you know, maybe still beautiful hamdullah but it's about like showing the sin proudly that you have done.
Also, number six adult
that you if there is an obligation that you miss, or a promise that you're broke, because of that sin, you have to make it up. And the rights are to some belong to Allah and some belong to humans. So what belong to Allah, if you break some of the promises between you and Allah, and you have to make it up, you have to make it up. For example, you didn't give this a cat if your wealth you have to give this occasion say well la casa de Pena tala. But you still you have to go back and give this account. You know what you didn't fast according to some scholar you make up these days.
So on. Also, let's say somebody today was so lazy, he did not prefetcher and until now he didn't pray fudger and this hurt, bah. You know what, maybe encouraging him to repent Allah, what he should do, or she should do pray right now.
Or after the Salah, stand up and pray to rock out to make up the friendship that you missed.
So that when it comes to Allah Subhana, Allah is right. And sometimes it's a penalty, a form of penalty that you should do.
Like somebody said, well law here I will do something you swear by making up and he broke that promise. There is a penalty must be fulfilled. So if there is a penalty prescribed by the Sharia, you have to do it.
And if that sin against another human being, you took somebody's money, I took somebody's land.
I need to repent to Allah, but I'm still enjoying his money. And no, you give back that money to the person. You took the thing that you stole back to the person
If you can't, and if you can't you just donate it on behalf of that person that you took his or her money.
Or at least you ask forgiveness from the person as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, men cannot lahoma limited Li Guna de nada Canada who am alongside only the mean will be a dream of calamity. Well in Limtiaco lo hacer not only them in CRT sahibi, for whom Milla la Bukhari Muslim, that before the day of judgment comes with there is no money to settle matters between you and your friends. It's all good deeds and bad deeds either they take from your good deeds and they dump on you their bad deeds that's how it will be settled on the Day of Judgment.
My brothers and sisters we should all remember that sense can be
so insignificant in your eyes. But it is so significant and Allah subhanaw taala sighs
months Mohammed urban city and said while he's crying, he was asked why are you crying? He said well, la healer advocate Allah them been up to what I can abcya la quinta Sabu Hainan Juan de la creme.
I'm crying for a sense that one day I thought it's nothing so insignificant, and in pay attention to it. But a lot did pay so much attention to it. But Allah subhanho wa Taala considers something so big and so significant. And so important. That's why in the Hadith in Bukhari, and then the ratio of the law and that Eben Massoud said, the believers see his sins like the mountain on the top of his head, while the hypocrites see their sins like the size of fly, he just do like this. You should be
That's why NSF in America the answer, don't ever look at how small sin that you have committed. But you always look at how great Lord that you have disobeyed a lot amborella sirima a site where I can own a lot, even human athlete
has a big difference. That's attitude. It is so important for us to, to put a mind
my brothers and sisters, one of the things that make the sense are, as I said, so great. And the loss of Hannah to Alice eyes is how our attitude towards our sins.
When we see it as something major, something big.
Like one brother was telling me, he his wife, Miss fudger prayer. So they woke up and both missed fudger prayer. So he said, My wife was so so disturbed by missing fedrick
and he's like waking up, you know, checking his phone, what's the what's up what's the latest taking his time stretching, brushing his teeth, taking his time taking a shower, and she was telling him You have nothing in your heart hurting you?
Nothing that you feel that you have done something wrong, you walking up like any regular day.
What kind of a man of faith is this?
And I saw the alarm when Muslims conquered the biggest city in Persia at that time in the war was the Persian Empire. The biggest city that that one battle after that battle, the whole entire Persian Emperor fall apart it called the Battle of testo.
Then fight continued the whole night stopped. Guess what? After the sunrise. And as was crying. He was asked what's making you crying your anus.
And Yom Yom Yom Fatah Hello duster today the biggest thing the most important city fall in the hands of the Army or the Muslim at that guy.
He said but we missed fudger prayer.
in the midst of the battle, we missed fudger prayer
kialoa lai la sala
de estar de la mina dunya Maria.
I would rather that we prayed fudger on time, then conquered that city.
That attitude, that feeling in the heart is the big difference. That was make the sin meek means something to Allah versus means something to you. That's what's your attitude with it.
The sense became something so significant the loss of Hannah with Alice eyes We need
You so proud of your sins? Were you openly talking about it? When you openly posting it in your Facebook, where you openly share it in your Snapchat, when you openly proudly say you know what I did all this
sins became so significant last father's eyes when a law cover you and you insist to uncover yourself when a law wanted to be not to be exposed and you insistently trying your best to expose yourself to people in front of people
without a Kilimanjaro, camaraderie,
showing up your senses something so great and Islam could look at my little Mujahideen, everyone, Allah Subhana, Allah can forgive and can learn, and one of the people will fall away from the forgiveness they're so insistent proudly obably practice their sentence.
May Allah Subhana Allah protect us, a holdover similar to Mostafa law, it will stop them.
I have to rely on salatu salam O Allah Mallanna via bada that
my brothers and sisters
one of that their art and I shared this with some of you after fetcher that day, as named Misha Khalid.
He said that he had a friend of hers was a limo driver.
He's not that religious lives in overseas. And he said one day he called me crying. And he told him about the story that happened to him. He picked four passengers, driving them from one city to another city, from Riyadh to the east province. And he said, The why after we left the city, I offered them to when we put in guys to pray also because also prayer time. So the guy in the front next to me, they're very young, you know, middle aged, young men. He was joking laughing and he told him and among sadly, we don't pray.
You can go back your prior we don't pray. We party.
Then I told him Yeshua Baba, and he do whatever you do, but don't ever miss prayer.
uninstall. I'm not a preacher, this limo driver is not a religious guy just isn't. There's not a person who give like, reminders, code verse, but I just told them, Hey, I'm not religious, but I one thing I know, all my life. We don't miss prayer.
So you know what? The guy in the front said, You may be right. We should pray. So let's try.
They went and they prayed with me. miserable, we prayed together. They said I said Son, I want to go to la sala de la. The guy who was next to me the leader of the crowd was still making suit. So the guys next time we're making jokes and fun, they said, Hey, come on, don't show off and search engine power hair. You know, they're like too much. But they didn't know that this guy's dead. He actually died while he's making a suit.
He said I try immediately to see what's wrong with him call the people in the station call up. You know the ambulance, but the guy gone.
why he's making his son you
can imagine that moment came to him while he was waiting in the car.
One of the crowd was crying so much. He found out later that this is his younger brother, the guys who died younger brother.
And he said, You know
this is the first time I saw my brother praying for at least the last 10 years.
Or maybe 15 years.
I never saw him praying in my life.
At least for the last year, no drama I know it nothing.
You know what's really, really hit me personally about the story.
What really hits me about the story is this. That I said to myself after 1015 years of complete disobedience to Allah.
After 15 years of doing everything may be wrong and leaving everything that is supposed to do turning his back to Allah. But still Allah choose to end this man's life while he's making
no revenge no hard feeling no in the master t nothing.
He welcome him to die in the best way ever can a person die
What am what a merciful Lord
That small step, that initiative that you took.
You decide to turn the page to try to be good. He will be there for you
this every year and this must be choose a theme for the year.
And this year won't be about support.
But the importance of supporting one another.
But I want to start my talk about this concept, this theme of the year usually start in February this year started Mark
by saying that the biggest support we need is the support of Allah.
And I can see that support received from Allah, if we are far away from Allah.
And the first step towards his to be close to him is to repent to him. So I asked myself and all of you to make this a new beginning
to make this Friday a Friday that single something will change in your life,
that you will commit yourself to do your best to please Him to do your best to abstain from the thing that upset or angry. And it's not about him because it doesn't affect him our sense.
He only it's affect him only because He cares about you because it hurts you and the end of the day.
Now las panatela forgive our sins and give us the strength to obey Him and to worship Him in the way that makes him pleases with please with us. ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive us and our parents, our family, our spouses, asked a las panatela to bless us to bless our community or city or nation.
