mama bud. Welcome back to our second session on Ramadan series which is the Ramadan marathon. As we said last time, we divided the subject to three actually Part Part One, we will be discussing the subject of the heart, the sin and inshallah we'll be talking about the email the subject of faded email and then we have two special presentations one will be about an Islamic marriage and the other one about the month of Shabbat in Charlottesville and then we go into the Quran and we talk about Ramadan, specifically, some things related to fist issues and also relate to the Quran and many many of our days in the month of Ramadan shallow the water khattala so this is session number two, the
heavy burden and that is the sin. Before we get into this point. I want to make sure that you guys still remember some of what we discussed last session. Because you remember, the first thing was about the heart. The heart is the vessel of Eman and taqwa as we learned from last time, but what it How is it related to the subject of the sin? We mentioned that the hearts it comes in two categories or three categories there are three kinds of hearts three types of hearts Do you guys still remember them? What are they?
The sound heart of colobus Saleem, what else
I'll call Bill Murray. You basically the sick heart. And then we have the dead one and COBOL kasi as the last panel dimension the Quran kosaku boom, the heart has become so hard. So these are the three categories of the heart and obviously the one that Allah subhanaw taala accept from you that knowing that will help you and benefit you in the ashram is Allah subhanaw taala Potter called Alcatel boo Salim the sound pure heart analysis permeates all our hearts sound and pure herbal element to then shall tonight inshallah we're going to be talking about the sin, the sin and that is that the burden that that put that's heavy weight on the heart that makes this heart become dysfunctional. What is
it? And how did it all start? And what's the nature of us human beings, the sinners? How can we overcome this and how can we understand the subject of sin itself? Is our discussion tonight to shallow the water codata. And let's begin with the first thing, the story of the first sin, the story of the verse, the first one, which is the first one man What do you think? Obviously the slide can tell a lot right? But is it the first is that is the first sin
is that is the first which is Woodson was the first
Iblees so if we talk about human beings, if we're talking about human beings, which sin was committed first,
Adam, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Surah Taha god wassa wassa, Adam raba, who, first our amazing an Adam disobeyed his Lord and now the Ummah they have a lot of controversy over the interpretation and the meaning of the eye over here. So hold on a second isn't Adam a prophet? What do you guys think?
out of Medina profit? So the Prophet the Prophet sin
is confusing right now. Okay, if if, if the MBR we're human that obviously Okay, you must make mistakes. But the MBR and the prophets were at a very different level from the average human being means the concept of committing a sin in that sense of sin. So be applicable to the NBA and the Muslim. Yeah, they make some kind of, you know, what we call what are called hula, hula, hula, like, what the process of ceremony is our well on the front of the face of that, that blindman the Prophet salla salam, he was kind of scolded for that, but not because it was considered a sin it was considered falafel, Allah is not, you know, befitting the prophet to behave or actually to act like
this. So for other mothers cylinder element, they argue, if Adam Allison when he ate from the tree, did that count as a sin and also kind of mentioned here in the Quran called wasa Adam are both of our so how can we understand this concept of ASEAN? All the while, there's another ayah Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the act of Adam Melissa mod Adam did he called us upon what Allah Lucien
well aka Idina Illa Adam kabu, financier, what a magical who Asma Allah subhanho wa Taala hidden which means we took a covenant from Adam Allah is Allah, but he messy which means forgot. So Allah subhana wa tada Allah, Allah azza wa jal named what what Adam did, which is me, which means to eat from that tree as nisi and forgetfulness. So Adam wasn't his intention to commit a sin or disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there's so many other interpretation to that, but a lot of Dharma they say, in terms of humanity, the first that was committed actually is when Adam ate from the tree, because that's in itself when a law called Xian, it's from that general definition of sin, which
means a sin in that broad definition of saying a sin which we're going to come to the schelotto Baraka with Allah. So Adam alayhis salam when he violated the commandments and the rules of Allah
Pamela Diana, by eating from the tree that was considered as a CNA in that sense, other animators say well hold on a second. Adam before he came to earth was not a prophet yet.
before it came to how do we know that because after this ayah Allah subhanaw taala says so much about hora boo Fatah wa alayhi wa hada, after this ayah he says to Panama to Allah, so much about horrible that his Lord have selected him have chosen him which reads for the message, or whatever Allah He means he accepted his Tobin has repentance will hada and gave him that guidance, which is the guidance for of prophethood. So some people might say this, probably, he did this in his human in his capacity as a human being. But the later on, he got the message to be a prophet from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that's again, the definition of sin. So some of the automatic consider this a
sin and that that kind of definition of sin. Others they say, No, it's just a matter of forgetfulness, and this john, others, they say, well, even even if you count this as a sin, it wouldn't count again, it wouldn't count against Adam as a prophet because he was not a prophet yet until he came down to earth. And that's when the message was given to the mothers that was Salaam. So how do you how do you define a sin? I mean, if you look, if you look in the books of the artifact definitions, and also in dictionaries, and so on, there are so many different definitions for the word sin or the Arabic language ism. I mean, I'm not going to go into the details the difference
between massiah and Islam and Katia and Jenna, the different words for the two terminologies for the tip of the title, sin in itself, but generally speaking, it is an offence that is considered an act of transgression against Allah subhanaw taala. That is divine law. This is now translation of translation of one of the Arabic actually definitions for the word, sin or maaseiah. So it says it's an offense, which means if you do it, it's offensive. What is my intention was not offensive. When other malice that I ate from the tree in his intention, did he have an intention to transgress against Allah Subhana Matos rules he didn't.
Because when he ate from the tree, he ate from the tree because someone else told him that if you eat from it, what would happen to happen to one of two things, whether they become an angel, or you live eternal life? Didn't that didn't at least vow a nice word to Adam. He said wakasa Houma Nila Kumara Manasa. And I swear, I'm just advising you, I'm telling you the truth. That's what I was telling Melissa. So he ate from the tree. He thought that it was okay based on knowing now what actually leads to and obviously, that it that intention didn't help cause it or calling this act in itself an offense. Which means, and Neil has done, as the gentleman said, lead to better laminal
harder, good intentions do not justify errors or mistakes. Even if your intention was good. If you did something wrong, it's considered wrong. If it's an offense, it means if it's a massive it's a massive However, what is it that is removed, if you've done something without knowing that's considered a sin, what is removed is is actually is the probably the punishment or agenda, which means the actual counting of the car. Instead, the liability is still there in that sense, probably, if it actually is being caused against somebody else. But the point is, it's considered an offence whether we have an intention to cause it in that in that capacity or otherwise. The second thing is
considered an act of transgression.
Even if you had nothing in mind, to transgress against the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala like no way I'm didn't mean that I will, I'm gonna be transgressing against Allah subhanho wa Taala route, even if your intention is still good and you have no intention to transgress against the rules of Allah Subhana matana if that act in itself, cross the line and cross the boundaries, if any of Allah Subhana waters rules, it will still be considered a sin, even if he had no intention to do so. And then it says against Allah subhanho wa Taala is divine law. Obviously we know that this is coming from the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that's what we call it divine
law. It's coming from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah. So that is a definition of sin from a technical perspective. But what is the nature of sin?
How would you do that what you're doing is wrong.
The prophet SAW some he gave us an indicator. That indicator is just like you know, it just like some, some sense of like a software that has a built in when you were born, you were given that kind of software, it's in the heart. It's part of the sense of the fitrah, the natural innate, the natural inclination to always do that which is right and avoid that which is considered wrong. So the prophet SAW the lesson and he gave us that natural indicator in our minds, in our hearts about what is considered sin and what is not. He said some of them as a Muslim Allah, Allah Guru hulak Albert
Hello, righteousness, piety, the essence of right that means, the essence of righteousness. The essence of piety is personal Hello. Hurston Hello, I explained that actually in Wednesday class with the sisters over here. It's not just saying the good character it's much more profound than saying just good character. It's the perfection of character. So the essence of being righteous. The essence of being pious is not about you know, how many times have you pray at night? How many like how you pray at night? Or how many days you fast Mondays and Thursdays is much more than just devotion actions its character, then it sets a little Arsalan well isn't as for the sin. As for the
sin for the maaseiah maharlika for Southern Africa, wa[???]a Natalia alienness Maha caffee sadhika. The thing that wavers in the heart, what does that mean? It's shaking in there.
There is no rest. You know what it keeps, you know, kind of going back and forth. That's what it means. You're not settled yet. You know, when you do something and you're convinced, do you have second thought about it? Most likely, no, because you know that it's right, and you do it. But if you're not sure about if it's right or wrong, and you start doing okay, now your heart is shaken. And you realize, you know what, regardless how much you try to convince yourself up there, that it's okay to do it, it's okay to do it. But then in your heart, you're not satisfied, you're not settled. Your mind gives is given you this mental justification, you have the right to do it, it's okay to do
it. Well, it's your right to do it. All these you know, again, mental justifications come in the mind. But the heart is not satisfied, is not settled. The professor Sam said, if you have that feeling wa[???]a and Italia arenas provided there you don't want people to know about it. You don't want people to see it or know about it in the heart. If this is what you have in there, the professor of law said MSA that is the definition of a sin, or most likely, you're doing something wrong.
Now, obviously, that's a generic definition that says it's a very broad right now, it doesn't mean that every single act is considered a sin, it could be just considered, you know, gone again, khilafah Allah an error, a mistake, doesn't have to be a sin. But generally speaking, if you have a feeling about something that you are about to do, that is not making you feel settled, you're not satisfied with it. And you're hard not not not at ease with that. And you cannot concern if the people see you, or the people know about it. Whatever that is, if this is a situation then differently, that is actually considered a sin. Be aware of that. And again, Subhanallah that's like
a natural indicator loss upon has given you
it's a natural indicator last panel that is given you so you could actually be aware of yourself and monitor yourself as well.
Okay, now this is for the sin. What about the sinner, the human beings? How should we understand ourselves in regard to the subject of sin? And The Beast of Allah Sallam said, khulumani, Adama hapa khulumani, Adama Hata and his Anasazi lottoland is called khulumani Adam ohata Waheguru. In a boon,
Allah Subhana, Allah says, All the sons of Adam are sinners. Now, what does that exactly mean? We're going to come and talk about the subject of original sin. But do we believe that the human beings are born are born sinners, or they're born with the ink with that with the tendencies that they make mistakes, and they can commit sins, that's what it means. It doesn't mean that we're born with the sin. Like in the Christian faith, for example, the belief is that all human beings, because of the original sin that was created by Adam and Sam, we're carrying that sin with us. And only in this case, only one way you could relieve and alleviate, you know, that kind of carrying of that sin by a
certain belief for the believers for the Muslims. We don't believe in original sin in that sense. But we believe that we are born we are born with this capability to make mistakes. Not that Allah subhana wa Taala is asking us to make these mistakes, but we do have the choice between living that which is right, or falling and that which is wrong. So we have that capacity to make mistakes out of our data. coolibah Adam, aka Miss by nature, human beings, the children of Adam, they have that tendency to make mistakes. That's what it means. And then Allah subhanaw taala says, We're huddled in a turban, the best among those who sin the best among those who make mistakes, or those who rush
back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and repentance. What does that exactly mean? Don't you ever try to seek perfection?
Don't ever try to seek perfection? What does that mean? So should we always look for the perfect character? We should but i mean by that perfection is that perfection that is not supposed to be human? A lot of us human beings will only think of perfection. What are we looking for? We're looking for a perfection outside of the human capability and capacity. We look for the angelic perfection. Like no sense whatsoever. No thoughts that is considered bad.
No indigenous considered that absolutely we looking for 100% purity in the heart in the mind and actions and so on. Now that is not so easy. Not everybody can achieve that. Maybe this level of the MBR and under under Olia, but still we need to do our best. So how can I be a perfect human being? Knowing that I make mistakes? Can you guys guess?
How can I be a perfect human being, knowing that I still make mistakes?
To repent? You perfection as a human being, that every time you make a mistake, what do you do? repent. If you continue to do that constantly, then you are actually achieving that human perfection.
As long as you return back to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you're good
but it's a becomes becomes a big problem if you start making mistakes and then you give up and never try to return back to Allah subhana wa Tada. So the first thing we need to understand that we do we are we being created with that ability or that actually inclination somehow to make mistakes. These mistakes can be small, can be big can be different, different categories, but still we make mistakes and the last panel what Allah is telling us It's okay. The best among those who do mistakes are those who always come back to Allah Subhana Allah, you know, to repent Allah Xhosa. Now, when it comes to making mistakes, people are of two categories. Number one, those who constantly forget
those who constantly forget what does that mean? means they make mistakes, and then they go back and they keep doing the same mistake over and over mistakes and eventually at some point, they stop and they quit trying to repent to Allah subhanaw taala says while at the Kuru kaeleen and so lava and Sam and fusa home with a common festival and we're not like those who forgot Allah, those who forgot Allah subhanaw taala in all their life, they have no regard to halal Haram. They have no regard to Allah subhana wa that has limits. So when you watch them when you see them when you talk to them, they have completely forgotten probably even Ramadan comes in and out and they have completely
unaware of the presence of the month of Ramadan probably. Salah time comes in and out and they have no regard no remorse, no feeling of guilt for whatsoever because they missed the Salah they don't have that. So they keep doing that. A lot of harnesses if they continue with this national law when they reach the level of complete mission and forgetting about the last panel that are allowed forget about them. Which means the last panel though that's it, he will live them for themselves. Allen MD Lycoming fasciae Kuhn, those are who defiantly disappeared Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's one category, the second category, those who constantly remember the last version. Now remember, when I
say remember Allah subhanho wa Taala not necessarily in full, you know full purity that they never make mistakes, no, even when they make the mistake. Allah subhanaw taala says in unleaded a taco is Amazon pa if administrator needed guru for either home or soon, Indeed, those who fear Allah, when an impulse touches them from the shutdown, which was a whisper from the Shaitaan comes their way and they make a mistake, they remember him and at once they have insight Allah subhanaw taala reminds them and they remember and they they return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you look at this IRA Now, something interesting or something ironic over here and that is what could it be as you might
look at it?
What is the loss of concern?
In the Medina taco, in the Amazon pie for Minnesota? What does that tell you?
People of taqwa people of taqwa can still be touched by the shaper.
Even those who are righteous can still make mistakes. It's part of sometimes it surprised me when people do tell them about someone who did something wrong they would say Really? Subhan Allah, how come? Why are they under human beings?
Well, Chef Hold on, he made a mistake, he made this and that, just like as if he fell from from from the sky as Panama, Gemma is still a human being, she's still a human being. Even those who are righteous, they would make mistakes. And by the way, just for us panela when we read the story of the Sahaba, of the law of the land home, one of our biggest mistakes, you know, as we read the story of the Sahaba we don't really read the overall life of the Sahaba delaughter at home, we only read what these anecdotes stories of the Sahaba what kind of stories we collect from, from the life of the Sahaba Rajaratnam the best. We look for the best example that's number one, number two, harmony.
So hobbies were there around the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he passed away 1000s 1000s and 1000s when the professor wa sallam went to Hajj, there about 100,000 people with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Among the Sahaba the exclusive number of Sahaba were collected in the biography of the Sahaba of the allotted Imam was actually a few few 1000 people. Of those are
If I asked right now to name the number the name the as many Sahabi as you can as you can, how many names Would you be able to count? 200?
Would you guys come 200 100? Okay 50 5015 to 20 average average people average person would know about 2025 names of Sahabi the average person and of this hobby Who are they? The best of the best. But the vast majority of the Sahaba of the last run home, were shepherds, or average people, artisans. You know, they live their lives they had other issues to deal with and so on. They will not all learn they were all educated people so they made a lot of mistakes as well. Still Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us in Medina taco with me some time for me to share title that clarify Dharma soon, and indeed those who fear Allah Subhana Allah those who have piety those who have Taqwa
is it when they are touched by the shadow when they whispered that when the shadow whispers to them, which means when they are deceived by the shaman and they follow the whispers of the shadow and they immediately remember and the meaning of remember it means repent back to Allah subhanho wa Taala one lesson we learn from this ayah it is called self compassion. What's the meaning of self compassion? Stop beating yourself down.
Every time you make a mistake, stop it. Stop beating yourself down all the time. Look at yourself Subhanallah I'm the one who could consider myself most righteous Look what I do love the shaitaan is gonna come and whisper to you they look at you are you Mashallah you the hijab lady everybody Mashallah looks at your sister Baraka Allah the best blah blah blah, look what you do. shaitaan is very clever is gonna actually make yourself sadara yourself. It will come to your the masjid go to the volunteers, you help with this, you help with that, and this is what you do. And that's what the shaitaan unfortunately, so I actually to pray on us and that way, again, I want you to take it in
yourself and use self compassion. Instead of beating yourself down. I want you to uplift yourself by reminding yourself if you make a mistake. The only way the only way to redeem yourself is by returning back to Allah subhana wa. And if you continue doing that, Allah subhanho wa Taala testifies to you. That's a sign of taqwa. That's a sign of piety and righteousness, as long as you return back to Allah subhana wa Tada. Next categories of sin. Let's talk about the sin, the categories of sin in general. I'm sure we all know the major accidents, classification of sins so we have the major sins and we have what the minor sins Allah subhanaw taala says In this ayah Allah
Deena Jenny Boone acaba, Ural if me wallflower Aisha Illallah, ma'am, in narangba kawasan ophira. Those who avoid the major sins, those are the major sins cabella isn't one for wash, which means actively moralities Allah says in and lemon except for a lemon and Allah intercede is talked about a lemon a lot, what does it mean the categories how far we go with this and so on. So, but mainly when it comes to the subject of a lemon lemons is the oversights here was rather as committing slight ones, but how do you define a sin as being a slight sin anyway. So they call them other automatic home in English actually an oversight, which means instead of doing what is more worldly, you do
that which is less, and that is kind of like an oversight on you, as someone who's always dedicated to acts of worship and devotion, act and so on. And from this either LMR divided the sense to two major categories. Number one, what we call the major sense al Qaeda. And the second was called the minor sins, or Soleil. What are they? When it comes to al Qaeda, there is also a big controversy among the Roma in regard to the decisive definition of al Qaeda, there isn't one decisive definition for Al Qaeda are the major sins. So one of these definitions is those acts which were forbidden in the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet salaallah salaam, and whose perpetrator is condemned with
punishment in this world, which we call it head or punishment in the ashram. And that is the torment or the other. So if the punishment was in this world, we call it had, which is the penalty basically, and that is in the penal system in the law. Basically, it's actually should be it should be actually brought to the court system, the court system is decided and so on, if it wasn't determined in the dunya, but there is still a punishment for it in the US, you know, that is where we caught up. So, the overall idea of the major sin, any acts, any forbidden act that was mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah, in the form of condemnation, that there's a punishment for it in the dunya.
There is a curse for those who practice this, that they end up in jahannam. And there's warning against this, any of these kind of as is considered actually a major a major sin as for a survivor,
Usually the relevant define the minor sins by saying anything other than I'll cover this how to define it so simple. So therefore, can we even count them? Can we even put certain boundaries for them, they say there's no way you can put boundaries for these for these minor sins. But eventually, they're anything that is outside of the category of the major sins because the major sins were mentioned exclusively in the Quran and Sunnah with some sort of punishment or warning. So anything that people do, which is considered offensive, but there was no specific punishment for it, and the Quran, Sunnah, it was forbidden, but there is no specific punishment for it. And the sooner that
will become that counts actually, as a zero, again, because of this a lot of orlimar. They don't actually have a clear classification on the number of survivor or the number of al Qaeda. But in one Hadith, which actually is multiple narration, just to let you know,
even as a Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he counted seven major sins. In the Arabic language, they were called El movie caught, as several movies called the seven major sins, a southern movie thought that like the feta lucassi, like the fatal sense, which means if anyone committed these sins, it's catastrophic. The result of this sense is just disastrous. That's what it means. That's the meaning of a movie called like the person is doomed. However, there were multiple narrations, these different narrations count different seven since differences, and that's why the LMR when they try to count them, they say, are they just seven or you know, different categories?
This one had it is 1711 eration, as a matter of fact, from Muslim as well, about these seven cents the prophets Allah says, Allah de la kumala several movies, I shall I tell you, what are these the seven major sins or seven actually, any sins that the person will be doing that they commit? They say for the better. So of course also, what are they? He says a lot of sell them to associate partners with the last panel with Allah and worship,
magic assert, killing one unnecessary mahatama killing the one whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has protected means their soul and their life was protected and consuming the money. That is the ownership of the orphans, which means, you know, abusing the orphans property, consuming a river, that's usually turning back when the army advances on the battlefield that's specific for that case, and also slandering the bleeding oblivious, which means the innocent woman miscommunicate accused them with with with committing the sin of adultery in particular, that is a major sin. So let's talk about this in shallow data, a little bit more details. So when it comes to these sevens, and are
they only seven, like I said, not necessarily an anomaly, Rahim Allah, Allah in his book, I'll move him. He can like elaborate on the number seven, he says Kala kulu them when he says just to elaborate, it's not just seven he says therefore it's cooler than been every sin or click on a webinar sticky tab in a sticky tab no sooner than average Ma. And isn't that kita which means the Quran, or the sooner or an email, which means unanimous agreement among Muslim scholars, that is considered a major sin or a great sin. Oh, where a fee be shifted to the pub, or probably there was a warning against it with the punishment tournament, our early car had or there was a mention of a
penalty in this dunya I should have been Akira alaihe, which means there's a great threat against committing that for who will Kabira this will count as a computer. So the olema they start kinda like racing, probably, or maybe trying their best to scrutinize the Hadith and the IR and find out how many how many major sins can become the most popular book, the most popular book that we have in print. As a matter of fact, I think it's also three it was translated into English language is the one that was written by an Imam. And they have a very famous book by by the title al Qaeda, which means the majors and that's the title of the book, Al Qaeda. So I'll cover all the major sins by
Medina, Rahim Allah, Allah is the most popular book that has that title. However, if you open the book, you won't find seven only,
you will find 70 plus a lot, because he was looking like a member of portabella. Hamill as mentioned over here, or any action, any forbidden action that there was a threat against it, or there was a specific punishment or penalty in the dunya whatever that is, as many as he could count and he had a whole list of activity of sins. If you just look on Google that book you find in the Charlotte Allah and you can look them up in the last version. So of these seven, I'm gonna go over the seven and show a lot and we'll probably maybe talk about some more later. But the first one, I was mentioned this Hadith, I should call Villa, the associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala in worship,
Allah says in certain certain I'm good at Luma Hara Buccola
Come to Sri to be Shia. Allah subhanho wa Taala is asking the prophets of Salaam to call the people of Mecca. The people in Arabian peninsula Come, I will recite, recite what your Lord has has prohibited to you. The first thing he said to Shri COVID ha Of course, obviously talking about the [???]can associated parties with Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's a whole different subject. We've covered an entire as a matter of fact sessions from before on the subject of the hidden Artesia, but this is the major sin the greatest sin that can ever be committed against Allah subhanho wa Taala, to associate partners with the last planet and worship in many, many ways, of course, and the most
obvious one is when you worship other than Allah azza wa jal, whether you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, eliminating Allah azza wa jal or worshipping Adam las panatela, making them equal or worshiping Allah and Allah subhana wa Taala, making the partner so in many, many extra capacities, if you ever take any kind of worship to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala that is a form of ship, and people need to be aware of that. What about that, actually, especially within the Muslim community, I know for us we serve hamdulillah we don't do that stuff. You know, if you go to a lot of Muslim countries, many of these Muslim countries, they still commit form of shirt without even
knowing that probably some of the some Muslim culture they have what they call them shrines or mazars. And that Masada is a grave of whom they call them, you know, a Willy probably Yes, true or not a lot at random. And then you have people come and they they do all these acts of worship around that grave. They go on, they make tawaf, they pray, they ask, they make drama, they solicit this person, and all these kind of things, action that should supposed to be only to Allah subhanho wa Taala, the attribute is now provided to this individual. Now that is a very dangerous actually act. It's a very, very dangerous act. And people should be should be careful with these things. Another
form of shock that we might commit without even paying attention to is actually is a minor ship what they call the shackle. And that is what is the Gemma area, showing off.
You know, when you do your Avada and he wants people to talk about it.
That's showing off, right? When you go at night, and at 3am you go and you post something online so that you let people know that you didn't tell Merlin
Otherwise, why would you post something at 3am anyway, right, you just visited the bathroom and came back again. So the thing is that when you do something in whichever capacity to try hoping for people to praise you for which is supposed to be honored Allah subhana wa Taala that is real, that's showing off and showing off as a form of shirk. Others it doesn't tend to move to the level of the full uninsured, but definitely it kind of destroys the deeds and destroys the reward for the deeds that you actually you're doing and you're making the second sin major sin that was mentioned the Hadith
performance sorcery or magic and we talked about several but we're not talking about tricks. Do you understand the difference? Of course, right? So when you people they use tricks like using for example chemistry or physics or you know that they're martial, they have a very brilliant you know, use of their hands and, and so on. These tricks are okay, they have not had nothing to do with magic. Now the magic we're talking about here is that is what they call it what they call black magic. The one that that is involving any hurting people truly they hurt people, because it also involves engaging Elgin in this kind of kind of act. people that use fire they use blood they use
snakes is a lot of things panela and they make certain spells to hurt other people. And the last panel that I mentioned this instead of the Baccarat, butterball motto shouting Allah Maliki Suleiman oma cafaro Solomon, he says that they followed instead what the devils had recited during the time of Solomon, and Allah says, What am I careful of Solomon? There was not a man who disbelieved. Well, I can nutshell in a couple of these devils, that disbelieved how he says, You're on the moon unnecessarily, by teaching people sorcery and magic. So Allah answer that this is actually his Kufa in itself. And that's why the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, some people were caught in the
in the practice of black magic there, and they were actually capital punishment was the ruling for that, you know, for that practice, time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Why do people still practice black magic today? Of course, even Muslims, of course, even among Muslims, a lot of people that come to me every now and then, and they say they went to a trip to a Muslim country and somebody told them you know, you need to go to that person and that person would help you, whatever that they were looking for, whether or not their hearts together between a husband wife, or find their last property or protect themselves against this or maybe have a child whatever that is. They
have all these all these wonders. And Allah subhanho wa Taala called it Khufu, as it's mentioned, the Quran, whatever kind of, you know, work of Sir, it is considered an act of God. Even the Prophet Salah Salem he warned us against going to these people
If anyone goes to these people and you believe them, now that's like Kaffir Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Mohammed, you just this believed in what was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So if you know anyone who does that fish advise them, should they put trust in Allah subhana wa Taala instead of these people. Number three,
Caitlyn Nasir, Mahatma Allah will have to kill an innocent person 11 half was the meaning of saying in law will have the meaning of saying 11 half which means Are there any ways or any actually occasions when they will, the killing will be justified? That's what it means. Not Allah. Of course, they say obviously, they know that the protected soul is the innocent soul is any human being man or woman, adult or child, Muslim or non Muslim, that is a that is actually considered, you know, the sanctity of life is for everybody. People need to observe that at all times. However, now according to the law, of course, there are certain occasions where that sanctity of that life might be might
actually be compromised, because of a certain action they've done themselves. Like what, for example, in the case of a self defense, are you allowed to defend yourself even if it's going to cause the other person to lose their life? The answer if it was so definitive answers, yes, absolutely. That concert will help if it was a matter of certain crimes, according to what is mentioned the foundation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is considered capital punishment. I know it's a debatable issues these days in the law of the land over here, but it was mentioned the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Salah Salem, there are certain occasions where
capital punishment actually will be put on some people because of certain crimes that they commit. But the point we make in this is that no one should ever should ever compromise the life of any person, regardless of the circumstances, at least for you, as an individual. Now subpanel the professor of law said I'm certain they have judgment in our most illogical abdomen. The ama, or Sala, one of the highest sets of the law says that the first question you will ever be asked about on the day of judgment will be about what your Salah there is another Hadith the Prophet Allah says Allah Allah Mayakoba fee or multi Emery been a nurse for demand. The first thing the first and the
last part will bring to judgment amongst the people will be in regards to the blood, what does that mean? means the people hurt each other. Which means if someone caused you know that spilled the blood, somebody by hurting them or killing them, whatever that is, so in this in this, do you understand how severe that is? There are many argue so if Allah says a Salah, and then the professor Sam also mentioned here, that it's
the blood so which one which one is we're going to be questioned about first? I wonder why they say both. How's that? Because the salon is in regard to the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You will be asked about Salah first. And regards to the rights of people you're going to be asked about the blood which means how did you handle how did you deal with the people if you hurt them physically in any way. And in the last part, this is what led in Elijah Ramallah and alpha one to an absolutely harmala level up and they are they don't cause of course the kill the soul, which Allah has forbidden to be called except by the writer we mentioned earlier. Number four, consumer the property
of the orphan act
as a team instead of uncertainness Allah subhanaw taala says in the Medina Corona Mandala Tamar Dolman in Mar Corona FIBA Tony him Nara was a slowness era those who consume the property of the orphans. They like consuming food him Nara, as if they are consuming fire in their village was as lowness as Indonesia. They will feel that and they will have it as a panel. I remember one of the brothers one time, he told me an incident, which is very ironic. He said he had a co worker, and that co worker was non Muslim. So that co worker was was working for a church.
I mean, obviously, not everybody who's in the religious field, is that religious sometimes and sometimes against with the shaitaan is clever, can deceive us in a certain way justifies for us doing things that are considered Haram. So he said that this co worker who was working for a church who was responsible for the account that is collecting the donation and the money for an orphanage, like basically he was the Guardian over this account of orphans, orphans property and money panel, I said that this guy, unfortunately, the shutdown was clever, and was deceiving him. So he was taken from that account without, you know, permission. He was consuming the wealth and the money that was
collected on behalf of these orphans. Instead of managing their money. He's now stealing from him. Now the point he mentioned he said that this man he came to him one day he knew that he was Muslims. He was asking for advice. Because you know, amen. to that feeling so guilty. I feel that my said because of the so much concern, so much anxiety says, I feel that my belly is my stomach is burning.
He said he used the word burn.
And this brother He called me says, Well, I heard from Amazon from his mouth, he goes, he felt there's fire in his stomach like he's so anxious. That level of anxiety and level of fear to what he's been doing all these years is now catching up to him and catching up with him, because I feel this fire in my belly. So this is basically what Allah says in the Maya Corona people told him Nara, probably that's what it means. That is in the dunya they won't feel rest means you always feel guilty at some point we'll catch up with them. And then he says what say a slowness era and later on, they will be put in a blazing fire. So the first thing in the dunya they have that feeling of
guilt, that visceral a burning sensation and the second will be a slowness or error that will actually put in burning Blaze.
Number five at low Riba consuming a river, if anything, if any sin that was mentioned in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa tada declared war against the perpetrators of that sin it will be consuming a river, further will be harboring an ally of water. So the last contest says you you are waging war against Allah and against his messenger. And in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala explained to us that using a river consuming river whether by giving it or taking it, it's the same in terms of you know, pure prohibited alladhina Karuna Reba, la como una de la cama cama de trabajo, Chateau de minimus, those who consume a river they just like to be being touched by the shape and that's what I
mean like being possessed by the Shetland delicate Vietnam color in the malborough mystery by they claim that trade and and rubber are the same, which is the same claim today many people they say, yeah, it's business. They're, you know, they're, they're investing this for you. So, this is what Allah says in the Quran. People they come and they claim they're the same. And Allah says, What Allah Allah will be our hora mareeba, limited clear trade is hella, usually undriven interest is how long? So last point I want to make very clear for here at the end of the ayah woman either for like us happiness and those who go back to it. They are the people of your hand and the people who fire
home for your family do they live there eternally, may Allah protect us from the surgeon. Number six, turning back when the army advances it's called an Arabic language at one Leo Messiah. And that is exclusive to that occasion. Obviously, when you're facing now the enemy and about the battle about the start, what happens if someone start turning back and that moment, it will discharge and everybody and when this person is hardness, everybody, it causes them probably to lose their lives as a result of this, they become weak, they're not coherent together. They the plan all starts you know, falling apart, and the whole destruction that's going to be caused because of this, their
failure will be actually massive against everybody. That's why is considered a major sin. Because whatever happens as a result of your failure, and running away, might actually hurt everybody else and everyone else in that area too. Number seven, slandering the believing innocent women, Allah subhanaw taala call it called formosana affiliate minute in a linear manner masala Minato dunya with Astra wala Hamada Bernardin, this is something I want to warn My dear brothers and sisters against it for vector for both men and women. Because sometimes we take it lightly. If you hate somebody, you start cursing and cussing them or cussing at them basically, and using these words, words that
is specifically label them with with these kind of, you know, misconduct, like you know, being an adulterer or being this or being that using the terrible words that it occurs at each other. That is so dangerous. Allah subhanho wa Taala has warned us against this kind of you know, behavior, like cursing and cussing at each other, in that fashion and also obviously, in deliberately labeling certain people you know, like that, and just kind of like a character assassination by always attacking their character in that fashion. There are a lot under manners, that Allah subhanho wa Taala counted as one of the major sins. So these are the seven major sins that were mentioned one
Hadith there are another other narrations like I mentioned, one of them and nourishes mentioned in in instead of one of these actually seven over here mentioned of Goku Paladin, being disobedient or being unbeautiful to your parents. Another one mentioned ascetical stealing, another one mentioned drinking wine and alcohol. So there are many actually different many different narrations and each one of them counts seven actually different categories of major sins. If you want to look at that and challenges go to say a Muslim, look at Al Qaeda with the group and find the list of the hottie that counts them counts all these actually categories or just go to the book remember,
Rahim Allah Allah and you'll find the list inshallah tada there with some of the evidences he provided from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that was the major sin. What about the minor sin?
How about the minor sin right now?
As I said, the Roma didn't have any specific definition for the minor sin but they said
The minor sin is anything that is besides the major sin. And we know that the major sin is anything that was mentioned was forbidden. And it was mentioned of threat of punishment of warning against you know, committing and so on in the Quran, the son of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam or dejima of the aroma, anything else besides that counts as a minor sin. For example, they say the look, when someone looks the first time, that innocent look at the first time and then some panela somehow the shaytans clever, ask them to look again, that is considered a sin. The first one is yours, the second one is actually against you. The second one counts as a minor sin.
Also the touch if you touch something that's not supposed to touch haram touch for example, in this case, also considered a minor sin. bad words, when people label you know, calling each other names, bad names, not the names that are mentioned in the seventh category of the major sins but generally calling each other in a bad names that is considered also same thing to just consider a minor sin, and there's so many other things but anything that wasn't counted that didn't count as a major sin will fall under this category. So based on these definitions, just just to clarify things based on this on these categories. What do you guys classify backbiting isn't a major sin or a minor sin?
backbiting is a major or minor
whatever holds the Holocene okay, but let's see is has there been any punishment was prescriber mentioned in regard in regard to this this sin? Do you guys remember anything that was mentioned? What is it?
Hmm. Eating like eating the flesh of your dead, you know, brother or sister that was mentioned cleaner Quran? So that makes it what a major sin? What about a NEMA tell bearing? You know, someone tells you something and you go, just oh my god, did you hear what she said? She said about you? 123? What do you call this? Is that major or minor sin? How do you know that?
I was slanders then I Mima or tell bearing basically, but he was mentioned before unclearly has there been any punishment prescribed or mentioned for an MMO?
I know at least but what is that? What is the evidence that mentioned there is a sense there is actually a punishment for doing that?
Which one which had it
besides that, you guys remember the Hadith of the Prophet SAW some was was with a group of Sahaba and then he turned to two graves and he, he looked at them and he goes in the home alive as the man Oh my god, the benefit can be that they are being punished and they're not being punished with something with something significant or insignificant. And what is that? One of them is one of the sins that were committed. He said Salah Salem,
this guy can MC finance been a Mima used to walk around slandering people on television you know, on the stuff and the other one never cleaned himself clear 11 he cleaned himself properly from the bathroom.
Even though we consider this lightly but here what you see is considered major based on this definition. So I just want you to be aware of when you're reading the Quran, the sooner some that has a certain punishment in the dunya and akhira. Don't take this lightly at all next
when the minor symptoms dangerous when the minor center How does happen anyway, how does the minor symptom changes anyway, Allah subhanaw taala says, Can belt ra rah rah guru be in New York Cebu stain has covered their hearts of that which they've been earning. What does that exactly mean? One sin after the other one once enough to the other and this one is light. This one is oversight. This one is minor. This one is not significant. It's one of the big thing, this one handler not against anybody, just something simple. You keep looking at the sin in that fashion, what happens? You end up with a heart like this completely covered with residues. And this like becomes like a very
hardened you know, layer and probably layer on top of another layer on top of another layer until it becomes so hard. kettle bell, Ron Allah colloquium. So don't take these sins lightly. Just the fact that they're minor. They don't mean they're just insignificant. Again, they can be so dangerous, okay, can they turn to major?
Do they turn into major or they just stay? You know, miners like for example, for example, Allah protect us or somebody looks at something Haram, they go at night, you know, they watch something haram for five minutes, two minutes, three minutes, and then then they just have like lampstand and they go to the printer icon and then the next day the same thing, and then the same thing and then the same thing and they continue with that constantly. Does that make that same could that same move up to be to become a major sin some of the other
They say, sometimes sometimes even the major sin itself can become greater than just measures and like they call it fascia. How is that? Let's, let's say something for example, for example, what is the ruling on murder? What do you guys think? is a major or minor sin? It's a major sin. It's bad, just killing someone is bad, right? Imagine if that person killed a relative? How bad that is right now.
Very bad, right? What if that person was actually his or her father? Or mother, the parent? How do you look at it right now. It's way up there, right. So even the major sin can get into categories. Same thing was come to the minor sins, the minor sin, as it continues, you know, constantly being committed over and over again, over and over again, specially if the person does not repent. If a person doesn't repent, then they keep this person keeps committing the sin over and over again, over and over again, over and over again, with no intention to repent, a no show of remorse, some other element they say it might actually go up to the level of a major sin. Like it's common, it's all
together and becomes major. Here, Allah subhanaw taala. Speaking about the incidence, in the in the story of eyeshadow de la la, when people were just kind of like, you know, kind of they keep, they keep carrying the story from one person to the other one. And they didn't think it's something major, like what happens in our communities, someone tells you something, and you say, I heard people say so and so you keep transferring that and it goes to become a big mess afterwards. And that the day by the way, most of our slandering happens actually on on the cell phones. You know, when everybody stopped forwarding, this measure and this measure and this measure to other people,
all these groups are sharing these messages upon Allah, that falls under the same category over here. Allah says is the latona home as soon as you you receive it with your tongues like you don't even you barely you barely heard it. And it just immediately bounces off your tongue right away, you barely heard it. So basically, the law says you don't even process it
is here and just boom, you take it out right away, you give it to the other person immediately, no processing whatsoever. If alicona habia symetrical moto coluna, bfsi kamalashila can be held you have no knowledge of it. It's all just I heard someone told me That's it. And then Allah says what the Buddha who hygena you think of it in significant wahoo en de la de but with Allah subhanho wa Taala is tremendous. It's, it's, it's basically genius. It's great. That's what it means. From this dilemma. They say, when it comes to viewing the sin, don't look at the sin of being major or minor. So how do you look? Where would I look? Then? They say, always look at Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Because when you look at Allah azzawajal you will never consider anything to be what insignificant? Latin and Arabic we say, la Tondo Illa, several maaseiah what I consider ala ala monocyte. Don't look how how minor the sin is. Look how great the one against whom you've seen
me in the last panel, that's how you should value these things. But at the same time, at the same time, this is basically this is supposed to be your position from the sin before you commit the sin.
But what if I messed up? I already messed up, I committed a sin. And I consider this to be major, something that really, really major, what am I going to do right now? There are my they say, Don't you ever look how great the sin is. But look at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala because the mercy of Allah will always be greater. So before you commit the sin, to COVID, Allah subhanho wa Taala is no sin will be minor at that at that moment. And if you've already messed up, don't look how great the sin is. Look how great the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah at this time, because that will help inshallah to recover and move on to the repentance, the original sin. Like I said earlier,
as Muslims, we do not believe in that sin, that original sin that we are born with the sin, but we're born as human beings, which means we have this capability of making mistakes, we do make mistakes, that's, that's what it means to us. But if there is any original sin that we should think about, and carry with us, which means Always be aware of and be careful not to fall into that sin, which is the very original sin from the moment Allah pocket Adam alayhis salam, that is the one that you guys you mentioned earlier here, which is arrogance,
ballistic bar and kibble. That is the original sin that would lead employees to be completely you know, left out at the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. So that is what is what it means to be an original sin.
Adam Allah is Allah made a mistake, but then mistake that he committed and he did that not cause not caused him to lose the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala altogether. It leaves he acted before
Upon ordering that divine court in a way that he was not supposed to, and has to be arrogant, and Allah subhana wa Taala rejected him and the Lazarus ejected him even actually, from that status he had in that moment and that time and also from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala The law says about him over here, they love Lisa stuck by our caramel, caffeine, etc, please, he was arrogant, and he ends up being of the disbelievers.
And he asked him Allah asked mama Nakata cinema hall up to bat what is preventing you from prostrating before that which I've created by myself, Spano wattana as the bottom contaminant it What is it you particular self so arrogant and so haughty and so on? But of course he brought his his claim and his justification Khurana Holloman, I'm better than him. cullompton me now.
In that same original sin exists in humanity until this day today we call it what is human racism.
It's the same thing I'm better than him. He's white and black is black and white. All these things the same thing to until today. Paula Anna fireman who collected him and now octoman teen color freshmen have an accordion Cara Lee you're expelled. When Alec Alanna de la Medina, UK the curse of Allah subhanho wa Taala until the day of judgment. So if you want to avoid any Original Sin, make sure that you never ever show so show any sign of arrogance never ever be that doesn't matter regardless, never ever think of yourself better than any human being. Because only Allah knows who's best among us own shelter now. Next.
Is there anything that Allah subhana wa Taala will not forgive? The answer is yes. And he mentioned that in the Quran so to NASA and to as a matter of fact, Allah subhanaw taala says in the law holla young Pharaoh au Shaka be he wild? Madonna delicately Manisha America didn't need a lot does not forgive associated with him in any way. But if we give subhana wa Taala, anything that is less than that? If he wills he's willing to forgive anything that is less than that sin which is again, the original sin cinema.
a missing child who's this challenge? Am I
gonna go there?
It's forgiven, don't worry, shelter
type. So again, in Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Subhana would not forgive anyone to associate para with him somehow, but he will forgive him to forgive any other sin besides that kind of hautala.
So why do people send them? What are the main reasons for people to commit sins? Number one, obviously is what
he vowed he vowed before Allah subhanho wa Taala not to go to jahannam by himself. He said, I'm gonna I'm gonna, I'm gonna carry with me as many as I can from the people for the children of Adam. He said, kala phobia is ethical awareness mine, I swear by your might. I swear by you, my Lord says, I am going to do as much as I can know who we are known as mine. I will shall mislead them all. And then he said in a bad economic policy, but I don't have control over those chosen servants. Those who truly yours I can't, I can't have control over them now lawmaking among the noble enemy. And so the shaitaan is the first reason why people decrements and he is actually he is vowing that to
continue on that mission. Another iOS of how that I mentioned started off. He says Carla maratea nama benei ad woman kullfi one Imani Masha, Allah him, ROM, shakin, I'm gonna try I'm going to come from afar of them from behind them from the right side from the left side, like I will leave no way for them. I will go there, I'll be there. So of course, the split to mislead the children. That means he would go in every way that you can use something you don't even think he would be there. Such as what in the masjid you're trying to do something good, the chatons gonna be there to me to spoil it for you. Your intention is not to spoil it for you doing something secretly public,
whatever that is the sheeta will try to spoil it for you because he vowed that he's going to take and he's kind of going to carry as many as you can with him to Johanna melas particularly honorable me. Also, what other other reasons actually other reasons why people do commit sin. The second thing we say
ignorance, what does that mean? So a lot of people when they make mistakes, what's the biggest problem that they have? As Allah says in the Quran, Allah Mercado la Hakata they didn't give Allah subhana wa Taala. The right estimate is forgive because of their ignorance. The more you know about Allah subhanho wa Taala the more you'll be pious, you'll be actually fearful of him. subhana wa Tada. That's what Allah says, in my actual law. I'm a baddie, and Allah, those who truly fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. Among the servants are those who have the knowledge. If you don't have the knowledge, you're most likely going to take it lightly.
You would cross limits because you don't really know the greatest of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So ignorance is another reason why people did commit sins. Number three, number three Ashoka desires. The professor Sam said hopefully to not be shut off or to genetical Mecca agenda was surrounded with what? what difficulties with hardships, you can go to easily have to pay the price for this, you have to be you have to be someone who really, who really deserves to be knowledgeable. As for jahannam, Allah subhanaw taala says we offer to not have a Shabbat and not was run with what with desires. lust and desire makes it easy for people to commit sin, unfortunately, and they fall for
that. And number four, the ultimate they say baffle Emmanuel Yachty the weakness of faith, obviously, you might have the knowledge you might know. But knowing by itself is not sufficient. You might know this is wrong, but you still do it. Why? Because the demand is low. And that's one shout out to our next session. But the latter next week, we're going to be dedicating that to the subject of email the subject of faith, what is it? Why does it get weak? How can we recover? How we can make a strong we're going to talk about this next week and shall have the Dakota Senator dension finishing shorter notice with the last soldier, the sin and redemption Okay, fine. I understand the
major sin the minor sin, why people commit sin and how we shouldn't be taking anything lightly and so on. But then sin and redemption How can I redeem myself? How can I just you know survive all the atrocities of committing sins Allah subhanho wa Taala says, interchangeable kabbah imagine how nanhu new Catherine come see it come when it's cool. komoot Helen Karima Allah Subhana Allah is telling us over here, the way for your sins to be forgiven, the way for sins to be forgiven to avoid the major sins. Which means if you avoid the major sins, what happens when you commit minor sins, as long as you don't commit major ones? Allah subhana wa tada will expand the sense the minor ones for you
easily. So whatever that you do, don't mess it up. You know, even I tell my kids panela we're human beings, right? So when the kids they reach the age of puberty, and the Shahada and the dunya and all these things, pull them from different sides. And so I said, Listen, my son, I know that you're not gonna you're not you're not an angel. You're a human being, you're gonna make mistakes. I said, my first advice for you, if you're going to make mistake, the first unit to remember, don't mess it up.
Which means lead this isn't to make anything. Something that you can recover from isn't something that Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you easily, that doesn't require much effort, you know, to redeem himself afterwards. That's the first thing you do. The second thing you come to me with hope you will shallow down. The thing is that we need to remember that as humans, we have a tendency to make mistakes, remind yourself Don't cross the line. Make a red line for yourself. These things red line, I would never commit these these things, make that red line and try to protect it a shell of the Dakota so the first thing avoiding major sin The second thing, repentance.
repenting back to Allah zildjian Allah subhanho wa Taala says woman taba, wammie lasallian for in the huya to ilahi metabo and he who repents and does righteousness does indeed turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala with an accepted repentance. Allah says if you truly repent to me, I'll accept that repentance. Look at this if you truly repent, obviously that repentance requires what evidence and that evidence is to do righteousness. That's what it means. But if you truly repent to Allah subhanaw taala Allah will accept that repentance from and if Allah accept the repentance from you, that sin as if it never happened,
if it never happened, okay, when it comes to repentance, does it have any specific conditions? Absolutely. There are three conditions for that if it was committed against the last panel with on the fourth one, it was something involving another human being. So the three things number one, first for the first thing you need to do is what to quit, listen. They usually say if you're in a hole, that's the role of the hole but if you're in a hole, and you're digging there, right, you're getting deeper and deeper into that hole and you want to get out what is the first thing you need to do to get out of this hole?
The first thing you need to look into is stop digging. Many people they want to get out of the hole but they're still digging
because they say until I find a way to get out of the out of there. It's okay to keep digging stop digging the first thing you quit Listen, that's number one. Number two, to be remorseful. What does that exactly mean? means when you remember it, you regret if you don't regret it that that you've done that and what's the point? There's not like people that commit sins and sometimes sins from the past. And then every time they remember these days they go Wow, that was awesome.
Those days of vanilla and even they call them the good old days along Stan I mean how do you show them if you're still remind remember these days as being good days.
That is not acceptable. The third one is to determine not to return back to it, that never, ever go back again to that sinful life. Never ever. Obviously, the stronger the determination and the resolution, the better it is, however, we're still human beings, we are going to make mistakes. So if I if I do something wrong, and I repent, later on few days, few weeks, few years, whatever that is, I felt weaker, and I went back again to that sin.
That's it. I'm doomed. No, what do I need to do? Repent again.
And again, and again. Look what Allah says in this ayah over here, for in the huya to Allah He metabo this person, you come to the word metab. What does it mean exactly? It means that he repents one time after the other one time after the other. So when they say one time after the other, what does that exactly mean? Make them constantly making mistakes. But with these mistakes, is always coming back to Allah subhanho wa Taala for redemption. As long as you do that, you're in good shape, you're doing fine shallows about Dakota. Now the fourth condition is if you have committed something against another human being, you are required to of course reconcile with that human being. So if it
was something as a property, money, wealth, whatever that is, you need to give it back to them. And there's some technicalities over here. Like if the person died or the person is missing, you can find a way to get back to them. There's some technicalities there, but at least you know that you're required to give that back to the person that you owe that had to if it was something like a property or something like a hot like a lie or something was said again, there's some technicalities This is not the place to talk about them, but we know that we are we owe these people the rights and the hook, we should give it back to them and shallow tobacco down.
