Dr. Zakir regarding another important aspect how Allah subhanaw taala accepts Tober repentance. What are the prerequisites for sincere Toba? And could you possibly enlighten us with some prophetic traditions of some of the prophets making Toba to Allah subhanaw taala unless isn't the Quran surah to him? Chap number 56 was number eight.

00:00:27--> 00:00:47

That URL is nominal or you believe, turn to Allah subhanaw taala with sincere repentance. And there are basically five prerequisites for Allah subhanaw taala to accept Toba. Number one the person should accept that he's doing is wrong. Number two, you should immediately stop it.

00:00:48--> 00:01:20

Number three, should seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. Number four, he should not commit the act again. And number five, if he has taken something from any other human being and if he can return it, return it back. For example, if he has robbed some money, you should turn the money back. If he has taken some wealth did you give the wealth back if he can undo the harm, he should do it. And according to him, he says that repentance is accepted when the person does not do that evil act again.

00:01:21--> 00:01:32

And it further helps him to do good deeds and prevents them from going back to the act. According to Imam and Novi, he says there are three prerequisites

00:01:33--> 00:01:48

for any robot to be accepted. Number one, is to stop that what he's doing. Number two, should ask for forgiveness. Number three, he should not do it again. And he says that the fourth requirement, if he had done some harm to any other human being, then should undo it if he can.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

And there are various examples in the Hadith.

00:01:54--> 00:02:13

Which give that how people have asked for forgiveness. It's mentioned the hadith of say Bukhari one before in the book of Stories of the Prophets, Hadith number 3470, that there was a person who had committed 99 murders.

00:02:15--> 00:02:25

So he wants to seek repentance. So he asked the people that how can you do it? So listen, go monk, someone says that you have killed 99 people,

00:02:26--> 00:02:54

there's no chance of forgiveness. So that person, that murderer, he kills the monk too. And now he has committed 100 murders. So it goes to the person and says that I want to seek repentance. So he says that if you want to seek repentance, go to that land, where people are worshipping Allah subhanaw, Taala and Insha Allah, you should leave the land in which you have committed the crime and go to that land where people are seeking repentance, and inshallah Allah will

00:02:55--> 00:03:10

Gandhi forgiveness. So he immediately goes towards that land, but on his way, that takes place, and he dies. And he turns his chest towards that village, where people are repenting, then both the angels,

00:03:12--> 00:03:34

the angels of good and the angels are bad, both come and won't take him the angel from the heaven say that we will take him because you want to repent, but then you will form the bad deeds, the hell they say, No, he has not committed a single good deed, we will take him we ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala intervenes. And he asks the village where people are painting, that it should come closer

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

to the person who's committed murder.

00:03:38--> 00:03:53

And he commands to the place where committed the crime that he should go further away. So when they measure the distance, they find out that the person committed the murder, he was one step closer to the village where people are repenting

00:03:54--> 00:04:26

for Allah subhanaw taala grants from China. So this is an example that a person commits 100 murder, and he wants to repent, only the need of repenting and traveling towards that place. And the different version of the same Hadith says that while dying, he pushes himself towards the knee looks towards the place where you can get forgiveness. So this shows that only the NIA and the intention to ask for forgiveness, Allah forgives. There is another example in say Muslim, version number three, in the book of food, Hadith number 4207.

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

There was a lady from the tribe of Johanna, she comes to the Prophet

00:04:32--> 00:04:40

and shed adultery, and she was pregnant. So she comes to the Prophet and says, that I've done so and so sin.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

Please give me punishment.

00:04:44--> 00:04:44

So the Prophet

00:04:45--> 00:04:51

calls her master and says, take care of this woman till she delivers the child.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

And after that, get her to me. So the master takes care of her. Now after she gives birth to a child, he gets the woman

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

Then the Prophet says, because of the adultery, she has to be given that penalty. And the lady, she loves to wrap around herself with a cloth, and the people stoned to death. And after she dies, the Prophet he prays for her.

00:05:16--> 00:05:32

So my man life peace with him says, the true prophet. You're praying for a woman who has committed adultery. And the Prophet replies that the Vaishya has repented. Even if you distribute this repentance to 70 people of Medina it will be sufficient for them to go to China.

00:05:33--> 00:05:45

Who can depend better than the woman who's willing to give her life for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. A similar example is given in a Muslim, born Mythri in the book of

00:05:46--> 00:06:01

voodoo, how did number four to 05 that Maya has been Maalik mill, I've been with him, he comes to the prophet, and he says, that, please purify me. The Prophet says, What do you

00:06:02--> 00:06:05

go and ask for forgiveness? Allah subhanaw taala and you repent,

00:06:06--> 00:06:12

the person goes back again he comes and says, no messenger, please pardon me. He says no to you.

00:06:13--> 00:06:32

asked for forgiveness, Allah subhanaw taala and you repent, again, the person goes, again, you come for a third time, oh Messenger of Allah, please purify me. He says go away from you. Ask for repentance. Ask forgiveness, Allah subhanaw taala. Again, the fourth time becomes a nice fish of the Prophet. Please pardon me. The Prophet says, from what?

00:06:34--> 00:06:39

So my melody is written. He says that from adultery.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

He says, Are you mad? Have you gone crazy?

00:06:44--> 00:06:57

So the person says, No, I'm not mad. When the Prophet does that, are you drunk? Did you have comer? Did you have wine? So the other people get up and the smell is more they said no prophet. He said no comma.

00:06:59--> 00:07:10

Is it? Did you really commit adultery sins? Yes, I've committed adultery. And I want the punishment for the sin if committed. So it often doesn't ask the people to stone him. And he was stoned to death.

00:07:11--> 00:07:21

After stone to that there's a controversy between the Sabbath and the two groups of people. One group of people say that he has undone

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

that myth. It's a pity that he will not get my favorite band and the other group says

00:07:28--> 00:07:46

Allah subhanaw taala has accepted my Melo pyridium Allah except repentance, and he shall go to Jana. This happens for two or three days. Then the Beloved Prophet citizen comes and they test to the Sabbath, that pray for my Malik, because he has repented for a sin.

00:07:47--> 00:08:00

And if you distribute his repentance, even in a large number of people, in a group of people, it will be sufficient. Yeah, it shows that the people they committed a major sin. But they repented.

00:08:01--> 00:08:12

They were even willing to have themselves killed. Because both these people knew very well that the punishment for adultery was that it was stoned to death. So yeah, it showed that the high level of Taqwa they had

00:08:13--> 00:08:17

the sincere repentance, that that from Allah subhanaw taala and Allah forgives them.
