00:00:00--> 00:00:00

Da

00:00:07--> 00:00:09

da da da da

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

da da da da da

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

Yeah.

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

The moon

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

in

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

Lima

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

having Mohammed and some Allah.

00:01:02--> 00:01:03

Allah,

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

Allah Allah, Allah Allah,

00:01:08--> 00:01:23

Allah Madiba sisters, it's only one life that you live in this world. And it's only one journey that you take for the Day of Judgment. on life, the life is too short. Life is too short to be spent on hate.

00:01:25--> 00:01:32

It's not worth it. That is spend all your time holding grudges against anyone. That's not worth

00:01:33--> 00:01:50

what we do right now, within the spirit of hedge with the spirit of a reminder that you're going on a journey. It is once in your lifetime, just like your life in this world is one entire life eternal life and it's only one month time that is spent.

00:01:51--> 00:01:57

That's how a loss of power without a degree, how that would be done, wouldn't be actually done in this world.

00:01:58--> 00:01:58

And when we

00:02:00--> 00:02:19

would always remind them that before you go ahead, you ensure that you keep your mouth clean, that you do purify your heart. You don't hold grudges, that you forget, you pardon the people, because again, you don't have any guarantee that you will return safe from them,

00:02:20--> 00:02:28

and guarantee that we will arrive to their safe on the Day of Judgment. Therefore, we need to do

00:02:30--> 00:02:39

as much as we can. We need to spend this line in the best way possible. line for line is too short to be spent on

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

one day,

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

that unreported that

00:02:49--> 00:02:56

a man started abusing over custody is a person in custody. And the presence of

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

this man was completely on water. He was completely oblivious of the presence of rasulillah or being disrespectful.

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

That means even in the presence of the most righteous Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, you will always find people who will make you wonder that half the people

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

I mean, I'm sure all of us will say

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

Rasulullah is doing that,

00:03:28--> 00:03:36

in the presence of Rasulullah has never been that was there is no guarantee. We don't know how to behave.

00:03:38--> 00:03:45

So this man, he took that risk, and he was abusing and cursing and cussing over one

00:03:47--> 00:03:59

generation. And we're so lost sitting there watching. They're just sitting there holding you know, holding back from responding to this man and his abusive language.

00:04:01--> 00:04:08

with Justin, and also money was amazed by the behavior about the action over and he was mine.

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

Meaning he was smiling and approval to the patience of our

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

dilemma.

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

When this man had too much

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

he just responded.

00:04:29--> 00:04:30

He responded one

00:04:32--> 00:04:32

time

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

when the prophet SAW the last episode that

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

he went after sort of lost his son a lot harder was through a lot catch him when he wanted him. He was beautiful. He was cursing and cussing while you were watching and listening to me. You saw him into me

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

So

00:05:02--> 00:05:07

what I did was way less than what he did it just basically, you shouldn't be upset for I've done

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

a lot of some fun.

00:05:16--> 00:05:20

You had an agent who was responding on your behalf mean,

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

you don't worry about us.

00:05:24--> 00:05:30

You don't have to stress yourself out because of this, the angel was responding on your behalf.

00:05:34--> 00:05:38

When you started taking over, the angels are stuck and the shape

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

and

00:05:50--> 00:06:12

shape has become completely destroyed from being on this earth. He knows that among the Muslims, particularly among the Muslims, they would not be worshipped is not going to be preserved God limited some deviations here and there. But to consider like this becomes a mainstream says he's not he became desperate to be concerned himself as God, what happened.

00:06:15--> 00:06:22

He is now accepting much less than the minimum, which means instigate hate between

00:06:31--> 00:06:43

a husband and wife, with parents and children, between coworkers, friends, Muslims, non Muslims, between everybody that you can think of a team that works together

00:06:45--> 00:06:53

as a way of instigating and making troubles and causing people to fight one another. As a part of the process, a lot of it became

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

the reference of a Muslim so

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

I want you to be aware of and they're all true.

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

He said, these are all true phrases.

00:07:10--> 00:07:10

Man and

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

woman.

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

The Prophet is awesome, says, Mama,

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala,

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

who has been kind of wronged someone wronged you?

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

And you take the upper hand and forgotten.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

So you're doing it for the sake of Allah.

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

Allah loss of power

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

is not a

00:07:54--> 00:07:54

good idea.

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

So is it a loss on data is dependent on

00:08:00--> 00:08:15

our data, and no one opens the gates of charity means whether you start a charity, whether you give whether you know people to get any type of charity, any way that we ask people to donate and get

00:08:19--> 00:08:19

involved.

00:08:22--> 00:08:29

You want you only do that you do it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And also to maintain the good ties with the people in

00:08:32--> 00:08:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala in return, would attempt to get back in abundance a lot.

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

And no one opens the door for himself to ask, What does not necessarily mean

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

nothing is in need of it, but it just began to happen.

00:08:54--> 00:08:57

You read to be had katra and is only doing tax

00:08:58--> 00:09:00

increases as money this

00:09:01--> 00:09:01

way.

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

Illinois Allah,

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause them.

00:09:09--> 00:09:13

So you will get the result, the opposite results are expected and you hope for

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

again, from this heavy, we learned that

00:09:18--> 00:09:21

forgiveness is a great virtue, particularly

00:09:22--> 00:09:29

specifically, if you have the upper hand and you have control of your affairs. And you can give

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

or you can hide.

00:09:32--> 00:09:42

And you'd be generous, generous for the people and the greatest generosity not in money. But it's not impossible, loving generosity,

00:09:43--> 00:09:48

which is a person will just give the people what they use them.

00:09:50--> 00:09:56

So basically when there are times when they're asked, again over a set of data

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

and you never ask people for something

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

So these things come on we can see is one of the most devastating one of the most diseases.

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

That's why

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

Washington doesn't come

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

in will just take an opportunity

00:10:22--> 00:10:29

between you and fellow Muslim brother or sister in the community or anywhere else, even your household wants to ship on ones that

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

spreads like a disease.

00:10:36--> 00:10:55

And then term limited in our atmosphere, or ambience in that area. If you're going to go to Hajj Alhamdulillah even have to have hard work, you're going to work so hard to purify yourself from them. And if you're not going to have, you're still going on a journey to the hero, you are going to have

00:10:57--> 00:11:08

your life is all about going to get into lots of power data. This happens once in your entire lifetime. And I'm saying that gentleman, because after that, there is

00:11:10--> 00:11:30

an eternal, so you don't want to waste this opportunity will by age and holding grudges is just not worth it. So, how some people, some people with the wrong perception of forgiveness and further and they get to witness they just become so artistic in the way they hate and hold grudges.

00:11:31--> 00:11:38

This has become so so clever in a convincing themselves that this is something worth you know,

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

why? If you have a better than that.

00:11:43--> 00:11:43

So

00:11:45--> 00:11:54

why do people anyway they seek revenge? This is because for them, for them they can serve as an active witness and secret advantage is looking for

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

victory

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

and victory.

00:12:02--> 00:12:17

And what is it that if you go and win? If you win that book, you will perhaps the battle in America, you win the battle with one or two people but you have lost the entire war. You also in terrible yourself. And

00:12:18--> 00:12:40

you must and it's not worth it. So when it comes to doing that, how should we look for forgiving other people? Why should we think about how can we even tolerate someone? How can we handle them? There are few qualities that you need to observe that are to be forgiven, and someone who's really tolerant and willing to burden other people. Number one, they said the Arabic language

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

which is basically an intrinsic, one the inside in the heart

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

that

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

you're so confident inside you cannot fake?

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

Well, I can't fake that. But we can still exercise to become somebody with a sound.

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

Even if you're trans, educate yourself, because we're so lucky.

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

And we get back to education, while held forbearance and patience through training.

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

you train yourself to become kind

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

of the second follow up

00:13:25--> 00:13:29

that you always hold good assumption about your brothers and sisters before.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

So why did he say something so

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

there must be something. And

00:13:37--> 00:13:45

maybe she just thought that maybe this is just all these excuses you can think of so that you hold good assumption

00:13:47--> 00:13:51

as the last panel that says Dublin to London.

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

And if you just hear anything, who should at least begin by assuming good.

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

And then if the evidence is suggesting otherwise, then you want to explain how to fix the situation. But the first thing that you should always think good about your brothers and sisters. Next

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

that you accept a policy.

00:14:19--> 00:14:35

We're human. And we think human beings are angels, you're mistaken. You're one of the one of them meaning the way people wrong you. There's a chance that you have wronged other people people and there's another chance you are going to run by other people that you might say no, I don't do that stuff.

00:14:37--> 00:14:42

There is no guarantee. So therefore, another piece of advice that I'm says

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

is not really until you love

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

what you love. So a few love for people to come on board and seem to love

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

for yourself as the same thing, love for them the same thing that saved him the trouble from going down. So what just

00:15:10--> 00:15:13

happened, you're willing to forgive waipara

00:15:16--> 00:15:16

which means

00:15:18--> 00:15:25

accepting, not just not just forgiving, that means they come again, you will still forgive

00:15:27--> 00:15:27

one of

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

them one more time you're willing to forgive.

00:15:34--> 00:15:40

That's what it means. And when this happens, that happens from Garmin, just you know, by phone, you don't just say what

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

is inside, and the heart

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

cut is holding your Angular manual

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

holding Angular,

00:15:54--> 00:16:02

meaning the all the anger that basically you don't bent out. Because you know that we do that at the moment, you might make a lot of mistakes.

00:16:04--> 00:16:10

Instead of all your anger, just hold it and wait for a better time.

00:16:11--> 00:16:17

So you can relieve yourself and pick it up in a nice way. But not all the projects come online

00:16:20--> 00:16:30

and offline enough to completely forget. And that is again, as I said, it's not just by tongue, it's from the heart. It's from the heart as if it never even happened.

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

As it never happened completely. And that is one of the hardest qualities, one of the hardest part is people.

00:16:41--> 00:16:41

That's why

00:16:51--> 00:16:51

well,

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

no one ever granted anything.

00:17:00--> 00:17:04

Never bestowed any bounty on anyone better than

00:17:06--> 00:17:29

it's not money is not to fame, it's not your world. Wherever you find yourself on the line. That's not what this is not the greatest, the greatest gift that Allah has given. Some people is so happy and proud of what they have done a tremendous life. But the greatest gift that was passed, resort upon anybody, if you haven't,

00:17:31--> 00:17:31

that isn't

00:17:34--> 00:17:34

what

00:17:36--> 00:17:36

it used to be.

00:17:37--> 00:17:42

But if you don't have the patience, you can run about whatever you want.

00:17:43--> 00:17:52

nothing compared to be patient, and just accept to be patient, because you're dealing with a loss of power or die. Your reward is what

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

they said, the movement and the rest of

00:18:00--> 00:18:05

the believer is how you lead which means soft hearted and very, very kindness.

00:18:08--> 00:18:13

From outside, one needs to show strength and power they are.

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

They're very strong. But when they take control of things, they're very,

00:18:19--> 00:18:23

they're very gentle from the inside. And that's what I'm so lucky. So

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

he used to cry when he sees his son dying.

00:18:31--> 00:18:36

When his daughter when she passed away, and they were very young, he was crying.

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

what it used to be that he was crying for a lot of miles that he wanted to do that.

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

But he was not a control so many things such as

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

the conquest of Mecca,

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

warrior

00:18:58--> 00:19:07

message to the people, as Tommy took control of everything, he had the power of finishing them, to show them how strength and power can be essential.

00:19:10--> 00:19:32

And that is something we need. Again, Revenge. Revenge is not a very unique quality because that's a very natural reaction. What is really unique is when when you when you consider revenge, the natural actual reaction that you do better than that. You do much better than that is when people say Wow, this is amazing.

00:19:39--> 00:19:39

It

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

was really, really the one who strongly in wrestling and fighting and answering.

00:19:51--> 00:19:51

That's a very natural

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

reaction with all due respect.

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

But a shahidullah namely,

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

the one who's strong and mighty

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

is the one who holds himself at a time of rage. And that's the one

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

that actually action and take the right course of action as well.

00:20:10--> 00:20:15

And the reason a lot of Southern says at the bottom, I mean, I've done a lot of remote monitoring again,

00:20:17--> 00:20:23

in a lot of data, no one feels normal. And it just took

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

me until

00:20:28--> 00:20:31

the last panel data set. And given the

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

you know, when it comes to forgiving

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

anyone

00:20:44--> 00:20:44

you know,

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

even someone murdered somebody, someone killed,

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

anything more hideous and dangerous more than someone.

00:21:00--> 00:21:09

I'm sure that every human being would love to see revenge report on that murder. However, even on the last panel that says about this,

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

and if you forgive

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

me, when you are in charge

00:21:23--> 00:21:31

of causing death to the murderer, because of some in the sun system, the capital punishment is actually the decisions in the hand of the family,

00:21:32--> 00:21:39

families. And if they started to lower capital punishment, the judge will go with them. But they said that they would like to forget.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

Somehow, that's why the law says to them to the family.

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

And allow

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

for that,

00:21:52--> 00:21:58

on demand, which is more than just the energy while there are the digital,

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

the digital, someone that you love, physically.

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

But still with this allows you to forgive

00:22:09--> 00:22:22

even in terms of divorce is one unfortunately, that is becoming very common these days, in a time of divorce, when people they get married, they remember the sweet times for when the divorce, they cannot even remember.

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

So they want not to take back everything they can the gold, the jewelry, the house, and they didn't

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

even

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

allow us,

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

for us to do

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

so unless you forgive either of the two parties

00:22:45--> 00:22:52

are the one who initiated the contract. So they can give something that you accept to forgiven for them.

00:22:55--> 00:22:55

Just

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

and the law says what

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

about this concept and this point, will

00:23:05--> 00:23:18

never forget and follow the virtue which means the good times that you've spent together, that you work with one another. When it comes to buying and selling you also together somebody bought a long document upon seminar.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

If you forgive someone for the mistake,

00:23:24--> 00:23:24

Allah

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

will forgive your mistake.

00:23:28--> 00:23:37

And he asked also he said, Man, they used to forgive all all the all the people will take loan from them, they could not pay back.

00:23:38--> 00:23:39

Forgive them

00:23:42--> 00:23:44

for so they said perhaps a level of forgiveness.

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

I forgive him for them, because no one can be more generous.

00:23:55--> 00:23:55

Specifically.

00:23:57--> 00:24:02

So last time we'll get this man for just you know, forgive him in this matter. And even with the sermon.

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

If you have a sermon at home, and they made a mistake, a man can go sola sola

00:24:09--> 00:24:15

cannot quantify how much how long should you keep forgiving for the sermon limit?

00:24:16--> 00:24:17

So the process of

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

sorry, twice.

00:24:21--> 00:24:25

How much should we do? Forgive me for how long? He asked three times five.

00:24:31--> 00:24:35

Which means Forgive me 70 times, as we say, there's no way

00:24:36--> 00:24:41

you can forget this is no limit. So there is no limit for forgiveness. Remember, my

00:24:43--> 00:24:46

life is very short, but it's not worth it, spending it on

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

oneself that mean

00:25:04--> 00:25:05

So,

00:25:12--> 00:25:29

again, when we say that if you have on people forgive them, that is a good quality, and it's something that's very hard to achieve. That doesn't mean that is weakness, that doesn't mean that you remain weak. And you don't ask for your, for your rights. Do you have the right to ask for?

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

That? Absolutely. You don't have that.

00:25:33--> 00:26:04

So don't make this concept of forgiving synonymous to weakness. Now, it's not. But there are two things. You have an object and you have a father, you can ask for justice. And you can ask for virtue, and others justice when you ask for retaliation, and you don't do it the right way. And no one was said anything to you about seeking your money, right? Through justice. However, the normal quality is forgiveness. That's the virtue, that's the

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

moment for us.

00:26:16--> 00:26:39

And those who went unimpressive wrong is inflicted on them, help and defend themselves. So they're not cow, they actually help defend themselves. So there is nothing wrong with showing them justice, and asking for the right, but was asking for this, to go above them, to go transcend yourself above them. And that is the level of virtue

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

is to serve other people.

00:26:45--> 00:26:48

And the believers, the believers,

00:26:49--> 00:26:59

they never love English, they never mind. They hate it to be humiliated, or being wrong, or being put down. You know, they always hated that, however.

00:27:02--> 00:27:08

But when they when they, when they when, when they're now in a position to retaliate, they almost

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

that is a sign of power.

00:27:12--> 00:27:19

That when you when you can retaliate, when that's when you forget. So this is a sign again.

00:27:20--> 00:27:27

All right, to seek help, and to seek the other to seek the justice. But forgiveness is much more important.

00:27:28--> 00:27:33

This is not the season of college. And I'm saying this because I would like to remind myself, first and foremost

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

that we know, people don't have the country says, forgive me,

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

remember to forgive.

00:27:43--> 00:27:55

And if you're the one who wronged the people, you got to them and you said you know what, I'm very sorry. I seek forgiveness from Allah first and foremost, and then from you. And if someone comes through, then the best reaction to this is that

00:27:58--> 00:28:01

it's not worth the whole price for us.

00:28:02--> 00:28:06

Again, is just too short, to be spent on on hold

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

as to how long and the best part of it

00:28:16--> 00:28:20

is is hard for you to be likable number one of the convention was the

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

family that saw them invented, this man leaves the house alone.

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

This man was poor, didn't have money to go to church

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

didn't have enough money to give charity. So he makes his name and his own his own as a charity.

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

person and so on.

00:28:50--> 00:28:51

So that was an act of charity.

00:28:55--> 00:29:03

Can't be alone isn't enough to be like this man. He didn't have money to give charities which has given given the people this is the least with

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

some people unfortunately, they're just like a class. Just like

00:29:08--> 00:29:13

when it gets cloudy. That's it you can never expect the sun to come out.

00:29:15--> 00:29:19

So, so please, if you get a chance today inshallah

00:29:20--> 00:29:22

that forgive a lot

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

Ba

00:29:36--> 00:29:37
