have discounts and perks within the Muslim community as well. But the point is of course, you know, the main reason we're doing this is so that we are together this is our Masjid. So let us band together and inshallah help each other out. And this is the forms in front of you. We also have announcements as usual Subhanallah every single week we give these announcements and Wallahi we should open up our eyes and see the reality of the situation. We have two key volunteers whose immediate family members are in critical condition. Sister Shazia, she is the wife of US and Saudi, our community here. This is her 11th day on the ventilator, she is in ICU, we ask Allah azza wa jal

how are you?

00:03:42--> 00:03:42

Hi

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

Alhamdulillah

00:04:21--> 00:05:00

Alhamdulillah, who fashioned Adam and created the creation, He beautified the earth with vegetation and he placed stars in the constellation. He said the night and day in perfect alternation, and our months and years are set in duration. He revealed to us his speech as a revelation and he sent to us a religion for our salvation. So it is Allah and Allah alone we worship and it is to him that we direct our frustration. Know that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has commanded us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran, yeah, you Hello, Dina Manu Tapachula to call to Walter Mutanda Illa one to Muslim

00:05:00--> 00:05:59

On dear Muslims, one of the most effective tactics of our enemy ShaVonne. One of the most effective tactics of shaytaan is to utilize the psychology of sin against us. We all commit sins, it is in our nature to commit sins. Mankind by nature is not perfect. Mankind is sinful. Every one of us falls short of our obligations in different ways. Some of us more than others, no doubts, but there is no perfect human being amongst us. Allah did not create us to be perfect. Some of us have habitual sins. Some of us are addicted to certain sins. Some of us are involved in major sins. And every one of us without exception is committing minor sins on a daily basis. We say things we shouldn't say.

00:06:00--> 00:06:42

We look at things we shouldn't look at. We do things we should not do, we disobey Allah subhanahu, WA, taala. And shaitan comes along, and he takes those sins, and he uses it to drive a barrier, a wedge between us and our Creator. He whispers to us what's what's up, and he tells us, there's no point it's useless. You're a sinner, why are you even trying to repent, you're never ever going to be perfect, just give up. He encourages us to throw in the towel and to take on a much more pessimistic attitude about ourselves and our lives.

00:06:43--> 00:07:36

And sometimes, He comes to us at our worst moments when we feel low, we feel our battery needs to be recharged, we feel spiritually empty. And instead of turning to Allah subhana wa Tala shaitan comes and succeeds in letting us throw in the towel and in wanting to give up. And when that happens, dear Muslims, that is the point in time that Shavon has won. And we have lost when we throw in the towel and we say there's no point Allah so I'm never going to be perfect. There is no point I might as well just be as I am, and not attempt to return to Allah subhanho wa taala. Dear Muslims realize that we are Allah's design. We are a product of Allah's other. And Allah created us this is a very

00:07:36--> 00:08:17

deep topic. Don't misquote me, please, Allah created us and it is in our nature to sin. If Allah had wanted, he would have sufficed with the angels. Do you not know that when Allah announced to the angels that I'm going to create mankind, even the angels question why would you do that? Oh Allah, why would you create an imperfect species? Why would you create a species that's murdering and plundering and raping and pillaging Atocha Adolphe Herman, you've Sufi how to speak with the MA. And here we are, oh, Allah worshipping you day and night, praising you day and night doing this via day and night? Why would you create an imperfect creation? And what did Allah say, in the Mahabharata

00:08:17--> 00:09:04

and the moon, you're gonna have to trust my wisdom. I know why understand what you will never understand. Allah created us by our nature to not be perfect, it is ingrained in us we are not the types of creation that the angels are, we are not the types of creations that the Sun and Moon as they are non sentient beings. We are a unique creation. We are your creation that is different from all of the others. And in our creation. There is a manifestation of many of Allah's names and attributes that are not manifested in the other creations of Allah subhanho wa taala. You see, dear Muslims, you see, yes, indeed, it is true that we are the will of Allah, our nature is the will of

00:09:04--> 00:09:56

Allah. But that doesn't mean that Allah loves sins, that does not a justification of the sins that we do know. Rather, it is to make us hopeful of the intended consequences of our sins, which is the repentance and the turning to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah does not love the sinful but Allah loves the penitent and the repentant. Allah does not love sin, but Allah loves the remorse that is the consequence of the sin. And in that many of the names and attributes that are not manifested amongst the angels or amongst the non sentient beings can be manifested in us. That is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Hadith in Sahih Muslim amazing Hadith, Lola and now come to

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

the newborn. The US have Allah who become this is a

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

Shocking Hadith when you first hear it, we're it not for the fact that you commit sins, Allah azza wa jal would take you away. The other have Allah who become, were it not for the fact that you commit sins, Allah would have taken you away and brought forth a new creation. Why does Allah love sins? No will Allah who know your head will facade, then why Allah would have brought forth a new creation that commit sins, why? Then they would ask is still far and then Allah would forgive them.

00:10:35--> 00:11:19

This is one of the most important wisdoms in the creation of the Benu Adam, Allah does not love the sinful but Allah loves the repentant and in order to be repentant, you must have gone through what sin. So it is not the middle stage that Allah loves. It is the final product. Many of us we get stuck in the middle. And we don't realize that's not the goal. That's not the end. We are all going to be in the middle. We are all going to be in that state of sin. That's not where we need to stop. We need to keep on striving. We need to keep on pushing forward and work our way until we become amongst the penitent amongst the repentant amongst the terroir Boon our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:11:19--> 00:11:57

sallam explained to us that Allah does not love sin, but what does he love Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim la Allahu Usha, do Farahan mento batea haidakhan Allah is happier at one of your towbars one of your repentance is that he gave a beautiful example of the person who was on the camel traveling in the desert with no other hope except on his camel, his food and water is there, the camel runs away, he's alone. He thinks he's gonna die, starve to death literally dehydrate to death in the desert. Then he discovers his camel and he jumps up for joy and he loses his mind. And he says words that are words of blasphemy. And Allah will forgive him because he lost his mind. The Prophet system

00:11:57--> 00:12:43

said, you know that man in the desert, how crazy he was of happiness. Allah azza wa jal, infinitely better and more perfect than we can imagine, is happier at one of you, not the sinner, not the one when he does the sin at one of you when you turn to him in repentance. The angels don't repent, the sun and the trees in the moon don't repent. They are not sentient beings. We are the creation of Allah azza wa jal that Allah made so that the category of sins will take place. And Allah does not love sins, but Allah is happier at the repentance and Allah loves to forgive. In Allah, your headbutt to wellbeing, Allah loves the one who repents. Our Prophet system told us the DA that we

00:12:43--> 00:13:28

make in the Ramadan in Dhaka for one to hibel Africa. This is what Allah loves. Allah loves not the sinner, but the penitent, the repentant and the repentant person, by definition, must have committed sins in order for him to repent. Therefore, the Muslims, we need to understand that we cannot let straight on when we all feel down, we all have our sins. We're all battling with our own personal battles, our own inner demons. This is the reality of being a human being, but we cannot let shape on when and we stop middle of the way. No, we have to keep on pushing forward. We have to keep on trying our best and realize dear Muslim, that we should never give up hope of Allah's mercy. Even in

00:13:28--> 00:14:15

our sinful state. We are surrounded by Allah's mercy. We are surrounded by Allah's Mercy never let shaytaan feel that Allah has abandoned us. Allah never abandons us. Allah's Mercy encompasses all of us. While rahmati was here at color shape, my Rama encompasses every living being even as we sin dear Muslims, even as we sin, Allah is Rama is encompassing us we should appreciate and feel Allah's Rama and how merciful Allah azza wa jal is even as we disobey Him Subhanallah how merciful is Allah we use the very blessings He has given us to disobey Him. We use the wealth he has given us, we use the body he has given us the hands he has given us the tongues he has given us the eyes he has given

00:14:15--> 00:14:52

us we use those blessings, and we do things he does not like and not only does he continue to provide not only as our risks still coming forth, but he covers those sins from the eyes of other people. He is the city he covers those sins, even as we commit sins we are, we are should be aware of the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala realize as well that the people have thought if we're sinful and Gibreel offered the Prophet system to destroy them. But the prophet system was more aware of Allah's names and attributes. Allah does not love the people of life at the time of their Cofer, but Allah loves them when they repented. We are better than the people of thought if it should allow to

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Allah we didn't reject the prophets of Allah who we didn't pelted with stones yet if Allah can forgive them, and Allah is happy

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

The idea of repentance that How about me and you dear Muslims, Allah forgives all sins that the brothers of use have plotted to kill their brother. They threw him in the well they abandon him, surely me and you or we didn't try to kill our brothers and abandon them in the well whatever your sins are, Allah azza wa jal is merciful, even as we commit our sins. Allah allowed us to commit those sins from his other. He doesn't love those sins. But even as we committed those sins, Allah's Rama was still around us. The fact that we feel guilt, the fact that our conscience is pinching us, that is a mercy from Allah. It is a blessing from Allah, the fact that we feel distanced from Allah

00:15:40--> 00:16:21

and we feel an emptiness, that emptiness, it is a blessing from Allah because we realize we need to turn back to Allah, we realize that nothing can satisfy us like our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala no sin, no pleasure of this world will make us as happy and as content as our connection with Allah, the very fact that we feel guilty, the very fact that we feel empty, that is a blessing and a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah wants us to come back. So he puts in us the guilty conscience he puts in us the emptiness because he wants us to come back to him and he doesn't want us to remain in that state. Therefore, dear Muslims, even as we sin, realize that Allah azza wa

00:16:21--> 00:17:00

jal is Mercy was always there. It was there before the sin it was there during the sin, do you think it will be lifted up after the sin? Dear Muslims, Allah does not love the sinful and Allah does not love the sin but Allah loves the repentant and once again, I keep on saying what is a repentant person he is a sinner who has come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala so returned to Allah returned to Allah subhana wa Tada and constantly asked him for forgiveness, for he is in the indeed the food and the rock man may Allah bless me and you wit and through the Quran. And May He make us of those who is versus they understand and apply his head out and haram throughout our lifespan. Ask Allah's

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

forgiveness, you as well ask Him for He is the food and the Rockman.

00:17:17--> 00:17:48

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah the one and the unique. He it is that we worship and it is is a that we seek. He is the Lord of the oppressed and the one who answers the drop of the week. Dear Muslims realize that, to give up hope of Allah's mercy, to feel that you are too sinful to be forgiven. That feeling it is a bigger sin, than any sin you could have possibly committed.

00:17:49--> 00:18:42

The sin of giving up on Allah is a bigger crime than any crime your body and my body could have ever done. Why is that? And by the way, this is a Hadith our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about rule kabbah era you know, there's something called Kabira which is a major sin murder is a Kabira. Then within the Kabira there is something called the biggest of the big sins Akbar Al Qaeda era. That is a very small list. A couple rule number one, are the SRA cupola heeta Allah you worship an idol. This is a Kabbalah Kabbalah. Number two, one who told me Rahmatullah to give up hope to despair of Allah's mercy. This is number two on the list, to feel like Shavon wants us to feel that

00:18:42--> 00:19:29

what's the point you're to sinful, Allah is never going to forgive you just live your life and just face the consequences. That feeling in and of itself is a bigger sin than a lifetime of all the sins that your deeds can possibly amass. Why do you want to understand why dear Muslim, because by saying that Allah cannot forgive you, you have magnified your own ego and your miniscule infinitesimal presence to such a large extent that you are challenging Allah's Rama, who are you and what is your sins compared to the Ramadan? Do you understand what it means to say Allah can never forgive me? Have you lost track of who you are and who your Creator is that you dare challenge Allah's Rama and

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

Allah's ma Farah, you mere mortal can never challenge the right man. So for you to say Allah cannot forgive me who are you to challenge Allah is Rama and that becomes a bigger sin than a lifetime of sins. The despair that the sinner feels it is not from Allah, it is from Shavon Shavon wants you to feel hopeless. shaytaan wants you to feel useless, that is not from Allah. Allah wants you to feel guilty. Yes. And Allah wants you to turn back to him and in that turning back and

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

In that repentance, there lies our salvation. Dear Muslim, dear Muslim, Allah's names and attributes are so many and the bulk of them, the majority of them centered around Allah's merciful nature. The most common names in the Quran centered around the merciful nature of Allah. He is the right man. He is the Rahim he is the fall. He is the afford he is the manaan he is the Kareem, do you not understand when you're dealing with a Lord like this? How can you possibly give up hope of monk Farah and Rama? That is why Allah says in the Quran kuliah Eva de Alladhina asafoetida and fusi him lotta Panattoni Rahmatullah Oh my servants, Allah speaking to us directly me and you directly. He is

00:20:46--> 00:21:28

speaking in the first person, he is directly talking to us in the Quran, and he's calling us Yeah, everybody, my servants, we are the servants of Allah, and he addresses not the righteous, not the prophets, not the best of the best. He addresses the sinful Yari by the Alladhina Assaraf, who Allah and fusi him, Oh, my servants who have done so many sins against their own soul, he is addressing the lowest of the low that's me and you the sinful and he is saying love Taco, not only Rahmatullah. Don't give up hope of Allah's mercy. Don't give up hope when Allah speaks to you directly, and he addresses you by your most accurate description. This is my most accurate description, those that

00:21:28--> 00:22:10

have committed sins against themselves as sort of who I am. That's me, Allah speaks to me directly. And Allah subhana wa Taala says, Oh, you sinful person, do not give up hope. I shall forgive all sins. What more do you want? What more do you want when Allah has described you as specifically as you can? And Allah has spoken to you directly and Allah has said Don't give up hope I am there and I shall forgive in Allah her young food with the Aruba Germany and in the Hall of water Rahim. Allah forgives all sins for Allah is afford and Allah is Rahim Have we forgotten what our prophets of Allah who understand them told us that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has promised us ya a buddy, oh my

00:22:10--> 00:22:50

servants, you commit sins day and night, and I forgive sins day and night. Oh my servants, if you come to me with an earth full of sins, I shall come to you with an earth full of forgiveness. All my servants, if you come to me with your sins, piling all the way to the heavens, and then you worship me without committing partners, La ilaha illa Allah, I shall forgive all of them. And then the Hadith says well, or badly and I don't care how many Your sins are. I don't care because you're not dealing with someone like me and you who is going to count how many sins you are not dealing with somebody who is petty, who is insignificant, you are dealing with our hammer raw, he mean you are

00:22:50--> 00:23:30

dealing with Hyrule hoffy Then you are dealing with the Father and the love for Allah doesn't care how many sins you have, he just wants you to turn back to him and to repent to Him and to raise your hands and say rugby to them been fairly rugby adapt to them been fulfilling is still far and Tober This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants. Now all of this dear Muslims is not to justify sins. Please don't misunderstand me who the biller. Allah does not love the sins, but Allah loves the repercussions that comes from the heart of the righteous when they commit sins. So don't aim to commit sins, but once you've committed them once they're in your past, use those sins to motivate

00:23:30--> 00:24:13

you to turn back to Allah subhana wa Tada dear Muslims, if Allah wanted to create us in perfection, we would not be human beings we would be angels, but we are human beings. It is in our nature to overall be sinful. don't embrace sins, always fight them. Always feel guilty about them, but never give up hope of Allah's mercy. Always turn back to Allah subhanho wa taala. No matter what you've done, no matter how constantly you do it, even if you have a habitual sin, do not let shaytaan make you feel worthless and useless. Even if you have a habitual major sin. Do not let shaitan come between you and your Lord because nothing can come between you and your Lord, if you only turn to

00:24:13--> 00:24:54

him constantly do is still far use your sins to motivate yourself to do other good deeds. Yes, the ideal is to avoid all major sins. Yes, the ideal is to not have any habitual sins and that is the rank of the solid in the solid hand the ODR the MBR they do not commit major sins and they do not have habitual sins. But if you cannot get to that rank, if you cannot get to that rank, and you have habitual sins, if you have major sins that you are doing, do not drop everything and think you are a failure still continue to strive and struggle, repent to Allah azza wa jal even as you're a sinner, lift your hands to Allah and acknowledge your sin constantly make us still fall no matter what you

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

are doing. Use those sins to motivate you to do good deeds that you would not otherwise do. And real

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

lies that if that happens, there is still hope for you. So many traditions in this regard do not know the Hadith of the prostitute whose life was full of sin, but she knew she was a sinner. And she fed her dog some water knowing that she's a sinful person, but she wants to do something good. And just because of that, Allah forgave her. Do you not know the Hadith of the other major sin or prophecy mentioned, there was a man who did every sin in the book, but he would be generous with his loans. And if somebody he gave you as a rich man, plenty of money, lots of sins, but He would give people loans, and he would tell his slaves his servants, hey, if they're not able to pay the loan

00:25:34--> 00:26:16

back, don't worry, forgive them. I am more in need of Allah's forgiveness. On the Day of Judgment. Allah said to him, You did that I am more merciful than you, I shall forgive you like you forgive everybody else. This was a sinful person. He used his sins to do good deeds. And because of that Allah forgave him. Dear Muslims, do not give up hope of Allah's mercy. Do not despair of Allah ceramah constantly turn to Allah constantly make us still fall, do whatever good that you can do. And yes, strive for perfection, but realize we're never going to get there. Allah didn't create us to be perfect. It is not in the perfection that our mercy lies. It is in the intent and the striving

00:26:16--> 00:26:54

in that perfection. May Allah subhana wa Tada make us have the solid hand allah how many there are in fact aminu Illuminati?
