yeah you Halloween hepatic arteriala tomaten allah wa anta muslim moon carlalayhi salaatu wa salaam allah invillages a de la ilaha illa allah jallajalaluhu either a facade that facade LJsudoku loo who a lower heel taboo mybrothers and sisters in islam the firstthing that we remind each other is to beconscious of our maker to constantlyseek the forgiveness of allah subhanahuwa’ta’alawe are witnessing today again thejanazah prayers of a brother who is 16years old this should serve as areminder for us that we are going to bereturning to allah subhanahu wa’ta’alaand one of the biggest ways that wecould help ourselves is to seek theforgiveness of allah may allah subhanahuwa’ta’ala grant him genital fear doseand grant his family members in thosewhom he has left behind the patience togo through this trying time I mean so mybrothers and sisters if we look at thelife of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallamwe will come to learn that putting intopractice what he did is the mostbeneficial thing for us one of thethings he used to do on a daily basiswas seeking the forgiveness of allahsubhanahu wa’ta’ala you and i know hehad no sins but he still asked allahsubhanahu waas forgiveness not just once not tentimes or 20 not 30 or 50 but thenarration states between 70 and 100times a day he used to ask a lotforgiveness let’s be honest withourselves my brother’s my sisters howmany times do we let the days passwithout having sought true forgivenessof allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala even onceand this is where we say we need areminder on a constant basis mybrother’s my sisters what does it costyou to turn to allah what does it costyou to repent to allah one day it willbe your last day when we look at thehadith of the prophet sallallahu alayhiwa sallam speaking about prayer the fivedaily salah he says very beautifullysuddenly salata more dine when youfulfill your prayer fulfill it as thoughit is your farewell prayer which meansit’s the last chance I’m going to get tofulfill the prayer do it properly nowShaitaan comes to us and makes us forgetthat if we do not forget that and if wewere to fulfill every prayer that weengaged in as though it was our lastchance to please allah subhanahuwata’ala a day will definitely come whenthat would be our last prayer so therewould be no regrets but Shaitaan comesto us and makes us think that you knowwhat it’s too long you’ve been prayingfor such a long time thinking that it’syour last prayer I think it’s enough nowwhen Shaitaan does that that’s when wedistance ourselves from allah subhanahuwa’ta’alaso let’s persevere let’s remainconsistent in that fulfillment of theworship that we have undertaken for thesake of Allahmay allah subhanahu wata’ala make iteasy for us the same applies to seekingforgiveness the seeking of forgivenesswould actually nullify or should I saydelete cancel the sins that we havecommitted and they are plenty when youdo good deeds for the sake of Allah theyautomatically delete the minuses thatyou may have been committing as AllahSubhanahu WA Ta’ala tells us in nanHassan and even as sayingindeed good deeds cause the bad deeds togo away cause them to be deleted andgone these are the – ins that the timeswere not even aware of having committedthem when you do a good deed you comefor Salah with jama’aor you have fulfilled that Salah that isfara between the two salawa perhaps whatyou have done in terms of – sin would beforgiven by Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’alaand you wouldn’t even have known but butthat does not mean we should not seekthe forgiveness of Allah because wecommit all sorts of sins sometimes theweight of those sins we don’t reallyrealize we don’t know each good deed andeach sin has a weight in the eyes ofallah subhanahu wata’ala when you lookat the narrations that explain the dayof judgment and the way that we will begiving our accounts or the accountsshall be taken every time a scale ismentioned even in the Quran Allah saysone of our own in our zina Lucas paniyummy-looking fella to the moon of soonwhat you can omit scholar Hobart himin Carlton in a teener being what everbeen a CBon the day of judgment the scales ofjustice shall be placed and none shallbe oppressed even in the least no oneshall be oppressed and Allah says evenif there is a mustard seeds weight worthof a deed we will bring it forth sothese scales that are being spoken aboutin this verse and even in the hadith ofthe Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallamthey will weigh our deeds that provesthat the deeds have a weight good deedshave a weight bad deeds have a weight wemight consider something very light butin the eyes of Allah it is extremelyheavy like Allah says about slander andfalse accusation Allah says Cibona whohyena the law hearing[Laughter]you think it is lights but in the eyesof Allah it is massive it is great youmade someone’s life difficult you madesomeone cry you made someone go througha depression because of your statementsbecause of the foul language you haveall the bad accusations that you haveleveled against them you shall pay forit man loss of hanahuna to Allah make usmore conscious of what we saythere was once a statement by one of thewives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhiwa sallam concerning another where sheonly uttered the words all she is shortshort as in she’s a surety basically thelove the prophet salallahu alayhiwasalam says wallahi if that statementwas in the form of a droplet of ink itwould change the color of the oceansubhanAllah how many of us call eachother names and say things and we don’teven realize and this is why I say thatif we go back to the sunnah ofrasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallamof seeking constant forgiveness on aregular basis on a daily basis morningafternoon evening and night we wouldinshallah be doing ourselves a favor noone else remember Allah Subhanahu WATa’ala does not need your good deed ormine if the whole world were to engagein worshipping allah and allah alone itwould not increase the value of thekingdom of allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala andif everyone were to commit sins it wouldnever decrease the kingdom of the valueof the ownership of allah subhanahuwata’ala rather it is for us or againstusif I do good it’s for me if I do badit’s against me that is clear from theverses of the Quran so we need to knowAllah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala accepts fromus that which is pure that which is donefor his sake when you’re coming to theMasjid when you’re engaging in an act ofworship my brothers and sisters do itwholeheartedlywith pleasure for the sake of Allah doit happily don’t just come because it’san obligation I need to get done with itremember Allah does not need it Ipromise you the fact that we are agingand we become older as the days pass andsometimes we get so old that we startfeeling the pains and the bones begin toache that’s a gift of Allah telling youyou know where you’re going do you knowwhich direction you’re moving it’samazing we think of it we feel it butwe’re never conscious of it let’s becomeconscious of the fact that there comes atime if Allah has blessed you he maygive you age so that you can turn to himage is definitely a blessing because youhave more reminders when you know I’vegot a terminal illness it’s a gift ofAllah may Allah grant cure to all thosewho are sick and deal as much as we wantthe Cure doesn’t it bring us closer toAllah doesn’t it make us realize I havenowhere to go besides back to Allah butwhen you’re young and bubbling withenergy and bursting with energysometimes you tend to forget that deathcan overtake you at anytime as well sowe tend to turn away from allahsubhanahu wa’ta’ala and that is why theprophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sayswhen you’re young bubbling bursting withenergy known as shab or Shabab Shababand Shabab are not those who eat thekebab no Shabab are those who are youngenergetic subhanAllah if you can stillworship allah in your youth as you’reknown as Shabab and you have still beenconscious of allah and developedyourself in a beautiful waythere is a special shade for you on theday of p.m. because you deserve ityou deserve it may Allah Subhanahu WATa’ala help us all to become from amongthose whom when we have the energy weutilize it in the worship of allahsubhanahu wata’alaso the hadith of the prophet sallallahualayhi wa sallam he says very verybeautifully that in this body there is apiece of fleshif that piece of flesh is good and purethe entire body will be good and pureand if that piece of flesh is diseasedand sick the entire body shall bediseased and sick he says behold it isthe heart the heart my beloved brothersand sisters is an organ that begins topump before the soul is blown into thebody initially according to the Islamicteachings when you see the heart pumpingin the fetus within the womb of a motherit is not necessarily that which has asoul in it but rather initially a musclethat is moving doing its job subhanAllahand then there comes a stage where thesoul is blown in and it is given lifesubhanAllah amazing that is a heart itstarts off like a little cloth in factthis hadith calls it mudra which is likea spaced spread out little clot a clotthat is given a bit of you know like achewed clot where you have a shape to itand what happens when the soul is blownin it now is a heart that pumps bloodand connected to the life of the humanas well to a certain degree and this iswhy medicine talks about someone beingbrain dead it’s a topic on its own butit goes to prove a few factors thatIslam has actually taught but if we wereto look at this heart if it is pure andgood in every sense of purity andgoodness then the body is pure and goodwhen a person is sick and ill physicallywhat do they do they’d like to go for ablood test why because if the sicknessis in your body it will be picked up bya blood test that blood pumps throughthe heart so if the heart is diseasedwhat happens the body is diseased I pickit up on your finger subhanAllah look atthe power of the words of muhammadsalallahu sallam not just the spiritualdiseases but even the physical diseasesand then you have the spiritual diseasesmybrothers and sisters the jealousy theenvy the hatred the love to commit sinis something very dangerous it is adisease of the heart if you’re not goingto fight your nafs you are not going toget anywhere if you are committing sinand you’re enjoying ityour heart is diseased you need to makesure you tackle it by being powerful byoverpowering that nerves of yours andensuring that you fix up the cancer thatmight be of a spiritual nature ratherthan a physical nature we sometimes havesicknesses almost a spiritual heartattack plugged up and we don’t want totreat ourselves with the spiritualstents subhanAllah but if we werephysically sick we would go to everyhospital and every doctor to find outhow we can improve ourselves how ironicthe body no matter how hard you try willnever get you beyond a hundred years inalmost all cases what about thespiritual heart that we are talkingabout it’s going to take you intoeternity so let’s give it a little bitmore importance may Allah Subhanahu WATa’ala help us those who love to commitsin may allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala makeus strong so that we can fight it andfeel good about itmake dua my brothers and sisters say toallah o allah create a barrier betweenme and sin whenever i want to sin let abarrier come in allah whom mcvinnie behalal Eakin haram ik wahoo nini beforebleakman see what oh allah oh allah lethalal be sufficient for me such that inever ever enter into harm and grant meindependence through you so that i neverneed to depend on anyone else what apowerful to add of the Prophet peace beupon him and one more thing I’d like tomake mention of the heart should be suchthat not only do we dislike to commitsin but we love togood deeds or to do good deeds should Isay so whenever there is a good deedfight yourself make sure you don’tbecome lazy make sure that you love thegood deed and you’re doing it for thelove of Allah for the pleasure of yourmakerhe made you he is in control of you Icome to pray I will take my time I’m notjust going to come and try to get out assoon as possible no I will come I willread a little bit of Quran I willremember Allah I will look at mybrothers and sisters and I will feel thecare within my heart for everyone andthe love and the concern to help them tocorrect them to guide them if they’regoing wrong or to learn from them whereI am faltering but I am filled with loveI filled with kindnessI’m not filled with hate and an illfeeling I’m not filled with that whichis negative but rather that which isabsolutely positive for the sake ofAllah life is too short and our dutiesare many so to love obeying Allah tolove goodness for others to love forothers what you would love for yourselfall these are part and parcel of thepurification of this beautiful heart andin this way when we seek the forgivenessof allah subhanahu wata’ala we willdefinitely be heard by allah and i wantto share with you the best news theprophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saysat ebu mina them become Alan Banahe who seeks forgiveness from the sinsis equivalent to the one who did notcommit sins or who does not have sins atallwhat great mercy of allah subhanahuwata’alaone who did wrong and then recollectsand says o allah i did wrong he has nowrecognized allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala henow knows that it is Allah who willforgive me or punish me isn’t he equalto the one who always knew thathaven’t they now got to a similar levelSubhan Allaha person who has five hundred thousandpounds or a million is now known as amillionaireand if someone else made it after 20years he’s also now known as amillionaireSubhan Allah look at the mercy of allahsubhanahu wa’ta’ala may allah subhanahuwa’ta’ala forgive every single one of usbarakallahu li walakum al-quran youAsuna when a fire yakima murphy him Aminal hikmah a Kulak only has our stopreliable Akuma decided muslimeen first of all we know who Allah for Raheem
