Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear brothers and sisters, Welcome home. Welcome to Toba and welcome to returning back to Allah subhanho wa taala. In the month of Ramadan, one of the major things people look for is a second chance. They're looking for reconciliation with Allah subhanho wa taala. Again, they come with a lot of burden, you know, the carrying, feeling of guilt and shame and, and you know, breaking promises with ALLAH SubhanA wa we all come with these mistakes with all these errors, even Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam I mentioned this about us he says called Kulu nada Maha all children of Adam, everybody is hotpot which means we are prone to make sense and

00:00:37--> 00:01:12

Miss mistakes and errors. But then it says kind of a hole in the wall a boon and a best among those who commit sins and make mistakes or those who would attend back to Allah subhanho wa taala. You see, when we start committing sins and making faults and errors, we distance ourselves from ALLAH SubhanA wa shaytaan is very clever, and comes to us and said, Look, you know worthy of Allah azza wa jal you are worthy of being with him in the presence of the Divine you know, worthy of being in the mercy with the people you know, worthy be with the Quran. Why? Because you're so sinful, you're carrying all this you know, guilt and so forth. But that's the shaytan speak in our mind speaking to

00:01:12--> 00:01:48

our heart to keep us far away from ALLAH SubhanA wa Hamdulillah. Ramadan is an opportunity is a chance for all of us to reconcile, to reconcile with Allah azza wa jal, and also with ourselves, it's an opportunity 100 distraction from the shaytaan is less and less the power of that has become very less because the sheltering are chained in January right now, or at least change away from us. The only the only thing that keeps us unfortunately going during these mistakes are just all the habits, the power of momentum that was built over the months and the year. You know, just going staying away from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So coming back to Allah azza wa jal is definitely coming

00:01:48--> 00:02:30

back home. tilba is the way to Allah azza wa jal, ALLAH SubhanA wa has given commands us to do Toba and the word Toba means to come back to Allah subhana wa that you see in English when we use the word Toba, we translate that as repentance. And repentance in English remain means that you refrain from making that mistake that you never return back to it. But in Arabic is different. Tober has the meaning of free clearance, which means it's a repetition. It happens over and over again. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned from either side, the hand of the MBR and the Punisher is called normal absolutely no work. There's such a great app because it's a web, a web, which means it always

00:02:30--> 00:03:08

returns back to Allah subhanaw taala why we need that for because we do make mistakes frequently. And for every mistake that we commit, we need to tell them, we need to repentance we need to return back to Allah subhanho wa taala. So therefore, I want to make sure that we understand that Ramadan is an opportunity for that Toba to happen that repentance to return back to Alaska to Hannah Montana, and we do it to the best of our abilities. And if you fall short on it, we're going to do it again and again. Allah Subhana Allah says what do we Allah Hi Jamie and you know, I look up the floor one, Repent, turn back to Allah subhana wa Tada all of you the believers that are looking to

00:03:08--> 00:03:44

flee home so that you may become successful. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Hadith Rasul Allah is, as I mentioned, clad in Allah Talia also the other hope in the heart, Allah azza wa jal, he extends his hands his arms to those who repent, who's committing sins during the day. When they started painting during the night, we also did the whole bill laelia to Barcelona, he said Allah subhanho wa taala. He extends his hands during the day for those who sin during the night to repent. And he does that as well during the night in a manner that suits his Majesty for those who sinned during the day to return back to him. So all of this is happening day and night. Allah subhanaw

00:03:44--> 00:04:26

taala is waiting for our return our return home by submitting our hearts ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala admitted our guilt to him seeking His forgiveness and seeking His mercy. How do we do that? So for taba to be successful, there are three conditions. Number one, the first you need to do is to learn to stop what you're doing. There's a famous statement or rule they say that what is the first the first rule of the whole if someone is digging a hole on their way down deep down into that hole that they're digging for themselves. What is the first rule for them to start getting out of that hole? The number one thing that should it comes to our mind is what says Now stop digging. Many

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

people they say look up you know look for a ladder do this do that. No, no, no. The first you need to do is to stop digging. So if someone is already in a sinful lifestyle or doing something that's wrong and haram or inappropriate, the first thing that you need to do is to quit that that's number one. Number two, that when you do that you do it out of guilt not remorse in terms of what I wish I can still do it oh my god why this supposed to be haram and this audible or not none of that intention. You stop doing it and you feel guilty for even for going there in the first place. So you need to quit

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

It covenant that sin. And number three, the third thing here is that you have now the commitment that you will never ever return back again to commit that sin. So number one is to stop it number two to feel guilty for doing the first place and number three that you make commitment you will never come back again to it and if it happens that you come back again, another job as required for this inshallah Tabata core data. The fourth condition, if this is something between you and other people, human beings, then you owe them whatever that you owe them. What does an apology money whatever that is, if it does not increase the situation make it even worse. But at least if you can

00:05:35--> 00:05:46

consult with the people should do your best to shallow dalla remember Tober Ramadan is home and you should make sure that you come back home to Allah subhanho wa Taala Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
