Shaikh Abdol-Hamid called “immorality” against the teachings of Islam and the beautiful moral of the prophet Mohammad PBUH advising the audience to show sympathy with people and reform their morality and behavior with people.
Khateeb of Sunnis and Friday Imam of Zahedan began his speech of 9th Nov. 2018 by the initial verses of Momenoun chapter of the Noble Qur’an and said: “Making and reforming mankind has been one of the most important topics in Islam and all divine religions. A perfect human being enjoys correct tenets, moral and worships.”
“Value of human beings depends on their morals. The beloved prophet, peace be upon him, has said: “I was sent to perfect honorable morals.” He also said: “The nearest to me in heaven are those with the best manners.” Good manners are the heaviest deeds on the judgment day, too,” he added more.
President of Darululoom Zahedan said: “Morality is a consensus point among all civilizations, cultures and nations. Unfortunately people in our societies do not give enough importance to morality. Many Muslims think Islam is limited to Namaz/prayers, Hajj, Zakat and such worships; however these are very important pillars of Islam, but Islam is a much wider religion that covers more parts including tenets and morals. A Muslim can be perfect by carrying out all of those pillars and principles.”
Qur’an urges on good moral more than worships
“If you look at the Qur’an, it will be clear that this great book insists on good manners more than worshiping. Lots of qualities of any believer have been expressed in the chapters of Momenoun and Furqan where morality has been highlighted,” he added more.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid referred to some Hadiths about morality and said: “By correct tenets and worships human beings get nearer to moral perfection. If someone carries out all ritual worships but s/he is deprived of good manners, s/he is far away from the prophetic moral.”
“Without good manners and morals no one can call himself ‘pious’. There are aggressive people who just blame on their opponents and people avoid from them because of their bad attitude and misconducts or they respect them obviously to get protection from their damages,” he added more.
Friday Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan said: “Today human beings have fallen morally. Good moral is the essential need of mankind. Muslims could conquer the world by their good morals, but now they have been away from good morals, too. So show sympathy with people, speak with them by smiling face and behave with your family members well.”
“If your moral is not good, you can change it. It is a wrong conception that moral cannot be changes. Make Du’a to Allah to beautify your inward as your outward is beautiful,” he concluded his points.
US Sanctions, Unjust & Unacceptable
In the second part of his speech, the most influential Iranian Sunni scholar termed recently-imposed US economic sanctions on Iran “unjust and unacceptable” and asked Iranian officials to find efficient solutions for these crises.
He said: “In the last week the US imposed new petroleum and non-petroleum sanctions on Iran. We think the sanctions are unjust and we refuse them. Any country or nation should not be pressurized by sanctions.”
“The US wants to bring changes in Iran by sanctions. In fact change is the due right of the nation. This is the nation that can demand change; if it wants any change, it should be accomplished,” he underlined.
President of Darululoom Zahedan made it clear: “Our rulers and authorities are recommended to meditate on the issue of sanctions. Some of them have said that they would abrogate the sanctions. As a citizen, I think there should be some changes according to the wish of the Iranian nation. We have nothing to do with the US, but the nation wants some changes inside the country. People should be satisfied; I can ensure you that the majority of the Iranian nation wants changes.”
“Strategies of polices which have been continued for 40 years should be changed; they cannot be responsive more. By bringing changes the pleasure of God and the nation can be achieved. We hope the officials will take viewpoints of all elites of different classes in this regard,” he added more.
Friday Imam of Sunnis alluded to the martyrdom of Mawlana Samiul Haq and said: “Mawlana Samiul Haq was one of the great scholars of Pakistan who was stabbed to death brutally last Friday. It made us very sorrowful. Also Mawlana Mohammad Hassan Barfi of Khorasan passed away who was a pious and sincere scholar. May Allah have mercy on them.”
