Shaikh Abdol-Hamid alluded to the last days of Ramadan and urged on increasing worships in the remaining days of Ramadan. He was talking to tens of thousands worshipers in Zahedan on June 8, 2018.
Khateeb of Sunnis began his speech with the recitation of the Noble Qur’anic verse: «شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ» and said: “The holy month of Ramadan is going to be over. Some of us may be happy that Ramadan will end, but in fact it is a hard and sad news. Ramadan is an unexampled divine guest which brings blessings for all.”
“Lucky people welcomed this respectful guest warmly and they received it well to collect something for their endless life. We do not know about the next year’s Ramadan whether we are alive or dead,” he added more.
President of Darululoom Zahedan pointed: “All divine commands and opportunities for worshiping Allah are beautiful; if we take advantage of those commands, we will be prosperous. Ramadan and obligations such as Zakah, prayers, Hajj and the rest of worships take people to the paradise.”
“Those who acted upon the directions of the Qur’an and Sunnah and benefited from them and then died, they are happy and restful in the paradise. But those who were careless about the Qur’an and Sunnah and they violated the rights of Allah and His servants, they are in terrible and they are regretful; they are under punishment,” he further said.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said: “Some Muslims do not observe fast on the excuse of hot weather; are these people can bear the heat of the fire because of opposing the orders of Allah? This is the sign of negligence that people show less importance to the orders of Allah.”
“The prophet Ibrahim was ready to slaughter his son Isma’eel, but not to violate the order of Allah. We should be ready to sacrifice our souls, but not any divine order. Muslims do not obey Allah to offer prayer and observe fast, but they obey their egos easily,” he underlined.
Shaikh urged on paying Zakah and donations and said: “Zakah is one the important orders of Allah. Many of Muslims show laziness in this obligatory. While Islam orders all Muslims to allocate a small portion of their wealth for needy people. Supporting poor and needy people is a great moral.”
“The donation of Sadaqat-ul-Fitr has rewards more than any other non-obligatory donations. This opportunity comes once in a year and only in Ramadan we can carry it out,” he said.
Chairman of the Coordination Council of the Sunni Seminaries in Sistan-Balochistan concluded first part of his speech by saying: “The holy month of Ramadan is about to be over. So take advantage of the remaining days of Ramadan.”
He alluded to the martyrdom anniversary of Sayyidana Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, and called him a leader for all Muslims who imitate his footprints.
The US hurt Muslims’ feelings
In the last part of his sermon, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid pointed out to the Quds day rallies across the country and said: “On the last Friday of Ramadan, which has been named Quds Day, we demonstrate against the occupation of Palestine, the supporters of Israel and acknowledgment of Jerusalem.”
“The US acknowledged Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and hurt feelings of more than 1.5 billion Muslims and other free-minded people just because of few million Jews,” he added more.
President of Darululoom Zahedan called on citizens to support Darululoom Zahedan financially which has been suffering from financial problems due to bad economic situation of the country.
