hamdulillah Alhamdulillah we thank Allah and praise Him, for having created us from one soul, and from that soul he created its mate. And from the two of them, he created multitudes of men and women. And we thank and praise the law for having sent to us the best of his creation, and reveal to us the finest of all of his prophets and messengers, and chosen us to be the best Ummah that has been created for mankind. We thank Allah for having guided us to Islam, for had he not guided us, none would have guided us other than him. We thank Allah for every blessing he has given us those that we recognize and those that we do not recognize. And Allah reminds us in the Quran, What Is

00:01:19--> 00:02:10

Buhari company ama, who vorherigen What about you know, he has surrounded you in his blessings, some of them are clear and others are hidden from us. We thank Allah azza wa jal for He is worthy of being thanked. And we ask Allah for guidance and for forgiveness, realize all Muslims that Allah has reminded us to be conscious of him. When he says in the Quran, yeah, you hola Xena, Armando taco la Hakata voila, mutanda illa one two Muslim on are you who believe be conscious of a law the way that he deserves and do not die except in a state of Islam? Dear Muslims, one of the ways of being conscious in front of a law is to avoid sinning. So today's brief chutzpah, I will remind myself and

00:02:10--> 00:03:07

you of some of the many dangers and harms of disobeying a law of the dangers of committing sins is that it is through sins that allows anger and allows wrath is incurred. Look at our father Adam alayhis salam. Because of one sin that he did. He was expelled from Jenna even though it was other but the cause of that cutter was one sin that our father did look at a police and the eternal curse upon your beliefs. What has caused Emily's to be a cursed except his disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala we do not want to lose anger we do not want to last Curse of the problems of committing sins, of the issues that when we disobey Allah Subhana Allah is that sinning demonstrates that we do not

00:03:07--> 00:04:02

respect Allah. Allah says in the Quran wa de la casa de those who neglected and rejected Allah did not respect to love the way that Allah deserved to be respected. When we commit a sin, we are demonstrating that we do not have them or calm in our hearts that Allah deserves of the problems of committing sins is that sins demonstrate we do not have higher or decency. Because if we had higher or decency, we would not disobey a law. As our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companion, but has been Hakeem. He said, even in privacy, Allah has more right? That you'd be embarrassed of him, meaning we would not commit sins in front of other people. We would not commit

00:04:02--> 00:04:52

sins in front of our loved ones, we would do them in secret, and then our profits are sort of set even in secret. Aren't you ashamed of a lot? Don't you have hyah of Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah has more right? That you are ashamed of him than other people. So when we commit sins, we demonstrate our rubella that we do not have the higher in our hearts that we should have. Have the problems of committing sins is that when we commit since our hearts become hard, they become rusted. Allah says in the Quran Kela Bell, Ronna Allah obey Him Nakano yuxi born because of what they do, their hearts will become corroded. Their hearts will become rusted. And another verse, Allah talks about the

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

hardness

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

of the heart. So makossa onavo come when we did when they disobeyed Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:57

Allah says their hearts became hard. So the ones who disobey Allah, their hearts have become rusted. Their hearts have become hard. And the more we disobey Allah, the harder our hearts become. And we don't want to have hard hearts because of the characteristics of the people of Jenna is soft hearts of the characteristics of them with terpene is soft hearts. So when we disobey a lot, we destroy the purity and the softness of our hearts of the problems of committing sins is that when we commit sins, we in fact, diminish or even stop a loss Baraka Allah blessings from coming down, just like obeying a law and worshiping a lot increases Baraka, disobeying Allah takes away about aka takes

00:05:57--> 00:06:51

away blessings. And what that means literally, and this is in a hadith as well, that sometimes Allah azza wa jal takes away some lucuma some some blessing that was going to come a morsel of food because of the sins that the person has done. Another of the famous scholars said of the past, I sometimes disobey Allah, and they see the impact in my income. I see the impact in how my family treats me, disobeying Allah lifts allows Baraka and we need a luz Baraka, and so by obeying Allah, we ensure that ullas Baraka remains Allah His blessings remain upon us, of the problems of committing sins, is that when we disobey Allah, we show that we are truly not intelligence, we are

00:06:51--> 00:07:46

acting in a foolish manner in a manner that is not befitting a person of wisdom and taqwa. And that is why Allah describes the sinner in the Koran with a very harsh adjective. He describes the center as being Joshua Hill. You all know what Joshua Hill means. And Allah says, In the matoba, to Allah He Linda Dena Yama, Luna su beija. Allah describes the sinner as being Joshua Hill, even above the cousin of the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, he was seldom said kulu Manasa la Hua Hin, every single sinner is a giant Hill. How so? Can you imagine somebody taking money and burning it? Can you imagine somebody destroying his own house with his own hands, you would say this person is a fool,

00:07:46--> 00:08:35

this person is crazy, this person is not intelligent. So to the one who knowingly disobeyed the law, the one who commit sins, knowing that it is a sin, he is acting in a manner that is foolish in a manner that is jehoiada. And that is why even abus said, Everyone who disobeyed the law, while they are disobeying a law they are acting foolishly. They're not acting with intelligence. This is not wisdom. So the sinner is not wise. How can a sinner be wise, when he knows the pleasure of the sin is one instance and the repercussions might be an eternity? How can you be wise when the pleasures of this world are temporary, and the pleasures of the hereafter are permanent? How can the wise

00:08:35--> 00:09:23

person choose the pleasures of this world that are temporary, over the pleasures of the next that are permanent? So everybody who disobeyed Allah has shown that emotionally they are not intelligent. They're acting in a manner that is unbecoming, undignified and foolish. Much can be said dear brothers and sisters, and one of the great scholars of Islam, even though he lists over 70 issues that come when we disobey a lot 70 repercussions for committing sins in today's world, but we did barely 10 I want to conclude with one that we are all facing and if Nakayama and others mentioned this explicitly, they said individual sins when they become predominant and prevalent. They affect

00:09:23--> 00:10:00

communities and not just individuals, individual sins when they become prevalent when everybody's doing them. And when they're done publicly. And when they're done without any stopping. When the sin becomes a public sin that everybody is doing and nobody stops that sin, then the punishment is a communal punishment and not an individual punishment. And there is no question as I have said so many times the Quran and Sunnah is very clear that what we are witnessing now is a type of communal punishment for our

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

individuales sins, what we're witnessing now is a type of wake up call for all of us that for too long, our hearts have been hard. For too long, too much evil has been going on too publicly without any condemnation from too many people. And when that happens, I was outcomes on the community and not just on individuals. It is a communal adapt. This does not mean that every one of us is worthy or deserving we individually might save ourselves from the idea that's the goal. But it doesn't change the fact that it was collectively our sins that brought about this either. And so dear Muslims, think about some of these many repercussions of committing sins and absolve in your own

00:10:46--> 00:11:11

life resolve in your own life to try to minimize those sins, cut back on sins and live the most righteous and pious life that we can I ask Allah subhana wa tada to bless me and you within through the Quran. And may He make us of those who as verses they understand and who implement is halal and held on throughout their lifespan. I asked Allah forgiveness you as well asked for he is the food man

00:11:22--> 00:12:20

hamdu lillahi wa ala had a sama della della Mila, mula as well, me akula Hakuna had Roberto, committing sins is in fact, a part and parcel of being human. Angels do not commit sins. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, every single son or daughter of Adam is a sinner. By nature, we are not perfect. If Allah wanted to create us perfect, he would have created us angels. By nature, we are sinful. But that is not a justification of the sin. It is not an open license to do as you please. Our nebby sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and memorize this heavy, all of the children of Adam are sinful, but the best of sinful people are those who repent to Allah. The goal is not the

00:12:20--> 00:13:09

sin. The goal is the repentance. The license is not to commit sins. The encouragement is to learn from our sins and make up from that mistake and turn back to Allah. He believes just obey the law. Adam disobeyed Allah, Adam is Beloved, it believes is cursed. Why? Because Adam returned to Allah and ask for forgiveness, and it believes turned away from Allah and he was damned for all of eternity. It is not the sin that will bring about a loss curse. It is the arrogance that follows the sin. The sin in and of itself can bring us closer to Allah. If we truly repent like our father Adam did. When our father Adam repented to Allah, Allah subhana wa tada took him back into his Rama and

00:13:09--> 00:13:57

chose him and blessed him like he bless no other prophet by making him the father of an entire species. So what can we do when we commit sins number one, first and foremost, repentance and is still for no that repentance and is still far are the primary ways of forgiving sins. And there are plenty of hoods and lectures about how to repent and the proper way of is still far. Number two dear brothers and sisters realized as well. That of the ways that we can be forgiven is by the problems of this world, taking them with suburb and a man, being patient in the face of adversity, seeing what is happening to us, our families, our society, and having subtle eemaan tawakkol belief in

00:13:57--> 00:14:47

Qatar, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, every single pain and suffering and anxiety that a Muslim feels if he has a man, Allah forgives sins through that. So don't embrace pain or suffering. Don't ask Allah for tests and calamities. But when they come, turn to Allah and expect that in those tests and calamities, your sins will be forgiven. And the final point will say and much can be said but time is always limited. of the ways we bring about forgiveness of sins, is through our own good deeds and actions of Eman and taqwa Salah Vicar, charity, being good unto other people, showing your son to those that are most in need of it. When we are good unto others, Allah

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

will be good unto us when we forgive others Allah will forgive us when we are generous to others Allah will be generous to us. So of the ways we bring about a was mouth Hara and a was Baraka

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

And Allah His generosity is by living a righteous life and showing generosity and forgiveness to others. When we do this, Allah subhana wa tada will show mercy to us as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or raw Hey Mona your humble humble Rahman era humble man fell out of the your hammock community summer those that are merciful the merciful will show mercy to them. So have mercy on those on earth and the one in the heavens will have mercy on you Allahumma inni dying for amino allama Lata and if you have any army them at a local pata, Wareham Manila for Raja whether they need illa kadota What am Maria Manila Shia feta what I see on Elijah salsa, a llama fildena
