hope is a powerful thing to hope for the mercy of Allah Subhana. Allah to Allah isn't just something you wish for. It's something you earn. And therefore there's a difference between mn and Raja. What we're speaking about today is Raja, it's hope that it's demonstratable through action. It's not ml where it's a hope, where I'm just waiting for something to happen. Or Raja is an act of a bad an act of worship. And it is a part of the definition of taqwa of God consciousness and of hoping for a loss of Hannah to Allah is greater reward on account of the strictness that I adhere to His laws and his rules and his regulations. On the account of the strictness and the severity, I hold on to the
path and the footsteps in the tradition in the center of his Nabhi Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not a Jew, or meta or a beaner, we have this great hope in the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has mercy. And that hope is something that we ask for, through a mechanism of behavior, through mitigation of our hearts of removing doubts from them, through sincerity of the words that we say in our remembrance and F code that remind us of the grandeur and the merciful pneus of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then finally, the third step of hope through demonstratable behavior of the deeds and the worships and the behaviors that we perform, that we seek to endear us to a loss of
Hannah and with Allah. And I wish today to speak honestly about the hopes that I have in my heart and the hope that you have in your heart as being a way to leverage it. That becomes something that we say and do not just something that we believe, know that there is a difference between between having hope in your heart for a loss, forgiveness, and seeking to earn a loss forgiveness. In authentic hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Kamara will Imam Muslim Malema Muslim rule or quotes the prophets I sell them as saying, could lo matija toluna jedna all of my people, all of my nation, all of those who accepted faithfulness and God shall definitely enter Paradise in
lemon Abba, except the one who refuses to go in the one who says I'm not going in Romania they are lawsuit Allah who O Messenger of Allah would say, I'm not gonna go, that they have an opportunity to enter Paradise to enter the eternality of God's forgiveness and mercy and pleasure that is destined for us as human beings and says, No, I don't want to go in color men alcohol, I mean, the whole agenda, the one who takes their path of life obedience to me, not just obedience to God, but immediates to me, which is the obedience of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says minuta Rasul Allah, the One who obeys and demonstrated in obedience to the Messenger of God has shown their obedience to
Allah, men authority, the Hillel Jana woman, I saw a need for cadabra the one who obeys me follows this path enters paradise, and the one who willfully intentionally disregards my path of life, my tradition, the theology and the creed that I have brought the way of belief in a love the practice of prayer, and fasting and charity and honesty, the one who takes a path other than my path,
who Sebelius meaning and walks upon a path other than that of faith, so called the EPA has said I don't want to enter Jenna, I don't want to be from the people of Paradise and has refused themselves access. That becomes the standard definition of Raja. The standard definition of Raja is that in your heart, you hope to be from those who have followed the novia salaallah alayhi wa sallam, as well as possible, with as much sincerity as possible with as much conviction as possible that you become from the fortunate to receive Allah's mercy and the authentic hadith also narrated by the man Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, La Jolla told Jenna huduma Emily no one will
be allowed admission into paradise on account of them doing good enough deeds, you will never pray enough fast enough. You know give enough charity that you will be able to demand and knock on the door of Paradise and say give me my keys let me in I have earned this louella and to sue the loss of license. They said not even you will messenger of Allah have earned your place in Jenna that an account of your night prayers and the sacrifices and your Jihad and all that you have done have earned paradise por la vida Anna, he said not even I have earned that place in paradise. Illa Ayaka madonie La Habra Mehta, I will only be allowed into paradise. Once a laws mercy has enveloped me.
And therefore you see that this is a way of the prophets I seldom having hope for the Raja of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Do not ever think that the prophets I send them felt entitled that he felt that
In this life I've done enough to earn paradise. The prophets I sell them would be asked by the Sahaba messenger of Allah, Allah has forgiven you my Takata mean them become attacker, what has been done and what would ever be done of any, any mistake in your life would be forgiven by Allah. Why do you stand in prayer half the night more or less as Allah says in Surah 10 Muslim men Miss fat who half of the night Why had to testify until your feet and your legs become swollen?

istockphoto Julio me extra Rahman, Sabrina Morocco, I turned to Allah asking his forgiveness, turning to him in repentance and returning back to him every day, more than 70 times a day. Why O Messenger of Allah, because that is how you prove you have hope in the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah, mercy in the mercy that we see hope that we have in Allah is not an empty belief in the heart. It's not just oh in sha Allah, God will forgive me in sha Allah, God knows what's in my heart. And our actions are far away from the path of Allah, far away from the path set for us by a law firm is prophets. I said limb to lead us upon, you can say I have hope in the mercy of Allah and it's just
empty. It's demonstratable. And every time you see a loss, great mercy shown, even amongst people who you and I might assume a wretched, they've done some thing to bring them towards the mercy of Allah. They've shown hope in the mercy of Allah through an act of worship through a statement of worship through a belief in their heart, that is demonstratable that have made them worthy of their Raja in Allah subhana wa Tada. Aloma Jana min Raji nephila Romantic era, but I mean Oh lawmakers from those who have great hope in your mercy Oh Allah.

Don't ever give up hope in the mercy of Allah, don't ever turn away from your Raja.

And therefore Raja is something that we don't just have a hope in our heart, but it's a demonstratable act of
worship and service and calling others to good. I leave you with this vivid statement of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he taught us on the day of laylat al Qaeda to say as he taught his wife Aisha and others Allahumma in NACA, I flew to Herbalife for me, Oh Allah, you are the one who pardons wipes away sinful deeds to him would you love to do this fast for me?

Why is this short? three statements? Why is this the Do I have a little card?
Because in it is hope that Allah will forgive us. It is hope that if it's accepted, it can equal a life of 86 years of sinfulness. In it is the hope that with Allah will accept this short, humble drive with a sincerity of heart that I stood to him in that night, that I have hope in his mercy, that Allah will shine his light of guidance into our heart and give us an opportunity of doing good deeds that will cancel out our mistakes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala fill our life with hope, our life with purpose our life with determination, or Allah increase our Raja independence and hope upon you will suddenly Allahumma wa Sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Mojave now whenever you know Muhammad
