Alluding to continuous US sanctions on Iran and the new decisions of the US about Iran, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid urged on focusing on two pivots of “Allah” and “people” as well “deep reformations in policies” as the best ways to resist against the sanctions and problems.
Khateeb of Sunnis in Zahedan said in a part of the Friday sermon of April 12, 2019: “The Americans have intensified their sanctions and pressures on the country and recently the IRGC has been put in the list of terrorist organizations by the US.”
“I think we should not pay much attention to these sanctions, instead of it, if we focus on two pivots of Allah and people, all problems will be resolved. First of all we should examine our relation with the Almighty and reform it and secondly voice of people should be heard and their demands should be focused on and brought up to acts,” he underlined.
Maulana Abdol-Hamid further said: “Fear the Almighty that you may lose both the Sublime and people. If they ignore us, no one would save us. By getting the support of Allah and people none of sanctions can damage us and create obstacles including the sanctions on the IRGC.”
“I do not see any discretion and tactic to cope with the sanctions better than reforming our relations with Allah and the nation. We should obey the orders of Allah and people’s demands, however they are against our wishes,” he added more.
Khateeb of Sunnis said: “There is no any option but “deep reformations” in the policies of the country to cope with the current problems.”
In another part of his speech, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid alluded to floods crises in the country and said: “When calamities like floods hit anyone and he returns to Allah, that calamity will change into a mercy for him. In such incidents everyone should return to Allah including Ulama; they are not sinless and clean as prophets.”
“Supporting flood-hit people is a great work which should be carried out by all and Allah loves such works.”
Donations were collected by the order of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid for the victims of flood in Lorestan and Khuzestan provinces.
Nations’ life and salvation depend on obedience of Allah
In the first part of his Friday sermon, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid urged on “repentance” in the current circumstances and began his speech by recitation of the 24-25 verses of the Noble Qur’an, chapter Anfal.
He said: “Allah Almighty has put existence and salvation of nations in their obedience from the Almighty and His last messenger PBUH. None of nations can get real salvation but by submission before Allah and the last messenger Mohammad, peace be upon him; this is the way for respect, power and long existence.”
“The nations who disobey Allah will be defeated due to ignoring the orders of Allah and His last messenger. The companions of the prophet PBUH used to obey him always in every condition, that’s why they could defeat an equipped and strong army in the battle of Badr and other battles. The army of Muslims was equipped well with the obedience and submission before Allah,” president of Darululoom Zahedan said.
He further said: “In the battle of Ohod some companions disobeyed the prophet PBUH unwantedly, so they tasted a bitter defeat. In Hunain the Almighty taught Muslims that Muslims should do not depend on their equipment and weapons.”
“Misdeeds and sins make people distressed and forlorn. The prophet Adam was ousted from the Paradise because of one obedience and then his repentance was accepted. The prophet Moses struck a man with his fist without intention of killing him; then he had to wander for ten years. These were prophets, we should be more careful and take lesson from them,” Maulana Abdol-Hamid concluded his points.
