Khateeb of Sunnis shed light on the importance of the acceptable faith/iman in the sermon of Oct. 5, 2018 and called “sins” and “cruelty” the biggest threats for world peace.
The official website of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid reported his Friday speech where he recited the Noble Qur’anic verse: «الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَلَمْ يَلْبِسُوا إِيمَانَهُمْ بِظُلْمٍ أُولَئِكَ لَهُمُ الأَمْنُ وَهُمْ مُهْتَدُونَ» first and then said: “The word iman has been derived from ‘amn/peace’; it shows that iman is the biggest guarantee of peace in the both worlds. It makes individuals and the world peaceful.”
He went on saying: “When the prophet Ibrahim objected the false gods of his people, they threatened him about damages from the idols. The prophet Ibrahim responded: “They who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice – those will have security, and they are [rightly] guided.” [6:82] It means you (disbelievers) should fear as you have violated the rights of Allah.”
President and chief teacher of Darululoom Zahedan further said: “If a believer avoids wrong-doing and takes care of Allah’s rights and His servants, too, his/her soul, wealth and honor will be secured by the Almighty. When Allah bestows someone peace and security, no one can deprive him.”
“Today the world is insecure because most of human beings either do not have iman/faith or their faith is tarnished with injustice and wrong-doing. Injustice and violating rights of Allah or His servants –in any scale- damages peace and security,” he added more.
The famous Islamic scholar said: “It has been expressed in Hadith that if some of you glide and slip, s/he should seek forgiveness. Lapsing, perplexity and wandering are the fruits of misdeeds. If we avoid sins, He will save us from all challenges and problems of life. The best treatment for difficulties and perplexities is istighfar/seeking forgiveness.”
“All problems and perplexities in society are the results of our acts and deeds. We have been suffering from economic crises, differences and family scuffles due to misdeeds and wrong-doings. Therefore, we have no choice but to return to Allah and seek His forgiveness. So submit before Allah and behave with people humbly,” he added more.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said: “Allah Almighty told the Last Messenger: “O Prophet! Allah is sufficient for you and the believers who follow you.” For approaching Allah, resort to piety. You cannot satisfy Allah by words and slogans. Imitation is needed. If Allah is with us, the whole world and all people will be with us.”
“The next step is taking care of people; they should be respected and their dignity should be protected and maintained. The prophet PBUH and the rightly Guided Caliphs succeeded by satisfaction of Allah and people,” he underlined.
At the end of his speech, Khateeb of Sunnis alluded to the Police Week in Iran and said: “The biggest asset for the police is public trust; it is the best policy for the police as well as for the rest of offices. People should feel secure and calm by seeing police.”
