Khateeb of Sunnis in Zahedan termed the prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him, the ‘best example for humanity’ and called ‘freedom’, ‘respect to mankind’ and ‘justice’ the most important achievements of him.
Official website of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid reported the speech of him in the Friday sermon of Dec. 1, 2017 in Zahedan. He began his speech by the recitation of the Noble verse: «لَقَدْ کانَ لَکمْ فِی رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن کانَ یرْجُواْ اللَّهَ وَ الْیوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَکرَ اللَّهَ کثِیراً» and said: “The birth of the prophet PBUH was the birth of light and blessings. He was born when the world was disappointed about any guide to save people from corruption, injustice, inequality and moral, cultural and actual decadence.”
“By the blest birth of the prophet PBUH all disappointments were changed to hopes and darkness was changed to lightness,” he added more.
President of Darululoom Zahedan further said: “The beloved prophet Mohammad PBUH was dispatched in a time when the mankind was suffering from downfall in tenets as Ka’bah was full of idols. They were heedless about the real Lord.”
Pointing out to some reforms and messages of Islam, Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said: “Islam put an end to all ignorance and calamities. Slaves were freed, respected and people were encouraged to free them.”
“Women had no right to decide for their fate, but Islam gave them this right and respected them. No one can choose husband for his daughter against her will. The divorced and widows should decide for themselves clearly if they wish to marry someone,” he added more.
Shaikh urged: “The prophet PBUH introduced the Almighty to the mankind. There is no any Seerah better than the Seerah of the prophet, peace be upon him. Words, acts and all aspects of his life have been recorded and they will guide people until the last day.”
“The elegance of the prophet was perfect and unexampled; his outward and inward both were elegant perfectly, but his heart was more elegant,” he added more.
Khateeb of Sunnis further said: “Rasoulullah, SAW, was patient and tolerant before immoralities and adversities, thus he became beloved in the eyes of people and his Lord, the Sublime. He was the greatest teacher of morality.”
Implementation of justice & equality, achievements of the prophet PBUH
The president rector of Darululoom Zahedan alluded to the achievements of the prophet PBUH and said: “Implementation of justice and equality are the most important achievements of the last messenger of Allah. He showed respect and love to Salman al-Farsi who was a stranger in Madinah as he called him among his household.”
“He PBUH destroyed discrimination and injustice and gifted people justice and equality,” he added more.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid termed the prophet Mohammad, peace and prayers be upon him, the ‘will-wisher of all human beings’ and said: “The last messenger of Allah planned for mankind until the last day of this world in order to put people on the straight path. He gifted mankind the best civilization and religion. But it is regrettable that human beings, even Muslims, do not value this great personality. Many of them are not ready to study his life, religion and book.”
“Unfortunately the nations who claim to be advanced do not pay any attention to the Qur’an and its elegant teachings. They hate the life and teachings of the prophet, peace be upon him,” he further said.
The chairman of the CCSS expressed his concerns and said: “Muslims have made people away from the religion and teachings of the prophet PBUH. If we become real Muslims and act on the Qur’an and Sunnah, the world will change.”
He pointed out to the fruits the prophet’s efforts in his life and said: “The prophet Mohammad, SAW, was an expert in training people and constructing the society. There is no any example of his disciples he trained.”
“Sahabah, the Clean Wives and daughters of the prophet have no example. The most masterful teachers, philosophers, scholars and Muftis cannot train their students and disciples as the prophet PBUH did,” Shaikh Abdol-Hamid urged.
Unity, more important than water and food for Muslim nation
The rector and Hadith teacher of Darululoom Zahedan alluded to the need of unity for Muslims and said: “Unity is a mere need of all Muslims as it is more important than water and food for them. Imitation of Shari’ah and Seerah of the prophet PBUH is more important than any other thing in the current situation and in all conditions.”
“Unfortunately there are extremists among all sects who see unity against their interests. Thus they struggle to create differences among Muslim sects and communities. They are skilled in this regard, too. They earn by this way,” Mawlana Abdol-Hamid stated.
He urged on unity and multilateral understanding and said: “Muslims should be farsighted. They should recognize their enemies and avoid playing in their ground.”
Extremist sectarian elements distorted my words about earthquake
Reacting to the distortion of his speech about Kermanshah earthquake by domestic extremists, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said his words were distorted by sectarian elements who cannot tolerate unity of the nation.
He said: “Two weeks ago I just asked all countrymen to repent and ask for the forgiveness of the Almighty. But some expert distorters cut my words into different pieces to create dissension and disharmony among the ethnic communities. These extremists earn money by creating dissension among people.”
“The divisive elements have plans for creating troubles and dissension among ethnic and religious communities. They wanted to use Velayat satellite TV channel subtly, but the vigilance of Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi and other officials failed their efforts,” he added more.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid made it clear: “We know the divisive sides and the officials also know them well. They always spread lies and blames on public figures and Ulama distorting their words. They cut and affix some parts of their videos and announce awards for the ones who can find any mistake in my words if I recite any verse or poem.”
“Praise be to Allah, the Iranian nation, including Shias and Sunnis, knows well the will-wishers of the nation and country. They are vigilant and thankful people. So the sinister divisive cannot defame those who work for the interests of Iranians,” the president of Darululoom Zahedan said.
He addressed the distorters and said: “What’s your fear from me? If you think I’ve got popularity among the Iranian nation, you should be sure you cannot dislodge the popularity which has been put in the hearts of people by the Almighty. You just want to defame me because you’re afraid my position among Iranians.”
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid advised the divisive to leave their bad acts; otherwise their trial would be with the Almighty.
He expressed his especial thanks to all figures that took stance against the distorters and responded the baseless blames of them.
It is noteworthy some extremists fabricated a video that Shaikh Abdol-Hamid had called the recent quake a ‘divine punishment on the people of Kermanshah.’ While he just asked all people to repent to Allah.
