Shaikh Abdol-Hamid denounced going to extremism in love of money and temporary world. He called it the reason of adversity and compunction in the judgment day.
The official website of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid, the Friday imam and Khateeb of Zahedan reported, he began his speech on Friday 15th Sep. 2017 by the Noble verses of the Qur’an: «كَلَّا بَلْ تُحِبُّونَ الْعَاجِلَةَ * وَتَذَرُونَ الْآخِرَةَ» and said: “Allah Almighty has pointed out to the subject of “love of world” in these verses. In fact it is one of the weaknesses of human beings which creates obstacles between them and their Lord.”
“The human soul contains two organs of ‘divine’ and ‘material’. The material element of the soul makes worldly blessings and materialistic points attractive for human beings while the divine element pushes them towards the Hereafter and recognizing the Lord,” he added more.
Khateeb of Sunnis in Zahedan further said: “The material aspect of mankind excites them to love money and collect wealth, but the divine and spiritual side urges on human beings think of the Hereafter, grave and the Resurrection Day.”
“Allah Almighty has not called on His servants to cut their ties with the world fully, rather modify and adjust the love of world making the endless life dominant. Manage your worldly life and do not headless about the Almighty, His last messenger and the everlasting life,” he underlined.
The president of Darululoom Zahedan said more: “Allah the Sublime repines human beings that why you have been in love with the world leaving the hereafter life. Why you show laziness and listlessness in worshiping and good deeds, but for money and worldly life you are energetic with full zest. Many of us do not want to lose their naps and comfort for Salah/prayers, but we have enough time for evening parties and watching TV at nights.”
“The world is a farm for the hereafter life. The love of wealth is allowed but it should not be loved more than the Almighty. Having money is good when we spend it on poor, orphans and needy people,” he added more.
The famous Islamic scholar alluded to the last days of the lunar year and called on the audience to determine themselves that what they have done during the year from bad deeds to good ones. He said: “We should be always ready for death. There are sins which we consider them ordinary and usual, but they are heavy at the Almighty and destroying for mankind.”
Children, assets of our future
In another part of his speech, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid pointed out to the new academic year addressing parents: “Planning for children and new generation is very important. Think for the education and edification of children.”
“Unfortunately some parents do not pay any attention to their children; thus they go to bad companies. Parents are guilty if they do not have any plan for the education and edification of their children,” he underlined.
The Friday Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan further said: “Children are our assets and hopes for future. Students of schools, colleges and universities and their teachers should learn the Qur’an and recite it. Ulama and the rest classes of the society should be pious acting upon their duties about the society.”
At the end of his speech, Mawlana Abdol-Hamid alluded to the anniversary of Sayyidana Usman bin Affan’s martyrdom and his virtues. He said: “Usman bin Affan, may Allah be pleased with him, supported Islam with his wealth and soul. The prophet PBUH trusted him as two daughters of him were married to the third caliph.”
“The companions were like other human beings, but due to their strong ties with the Almighty they got a particular status before Him. They devoted their all assets and blood to serve Islam and humanity. All companions, especially Sayyidana Omar bin al-Khattab spread justice in the world as everyone admits their personality and justice,” the president and rector of Darululoom Zahedan concluded his points.
