Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said in his Friday speech of Oct. 25, 2019 in Zahedan: “The problems in daily life can be solved and tolerated easily by love; as well as if Muslims love Allah, it draws them closer to their Creator helping them in the both worlds.”
The Friday prayer Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan described the importance of loving Allah and said: “Loving Allah makes the practice of Islamic commands and rituals easy for a Muslim in his life”.
“The difficulties and hardships which prophets, peace and blessings of Allah be upon them, and other holy persons endured on the path of Allah were due to their love for Him. Love of Allah is a fact which has made believers happy throughout history. They tolerated tiredness, sleepless nights and difficulties of travels with passion and great faith”, he added more.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said that the idolaters love their idols, some love material things, but no love can be equal with Allah’s love which is in the hearts of honest believers. The Holy prophet, peace be upon him, said: “By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, I love to fight in the way of Allah and get killed, to fight again and get killed and to fight again and get killed.” What a great love that the Holy prophet desired and wished to be killed in Allah’s way.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said more: “Allah has mentioned a group of believers who stayed up nights to worship Allah and to recite the Holy Qur’an. The Holy prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was threatened with death and captivity and prize was set for his killing by enemies. It was easy for the Holy prophet to endure these problems for the sake of Allah.”
President of Darululoom Zahedan pointed out to the story of People of the Ditch (أصحاب الأخدود) who were burned in a ditch. They were thrown into a ditch and set a fire, due to their belief in Allah but they did not turn away from the true religion. There was a woman who saw her baby in fire but she didn’t turn away from her religion because she had strong faith in Allah.
“The prophet Ibrahim, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was thrown into a fire, but he did not give up even for a moment. He said: “I put trust in Allah. Allah is sufficient for me and He is the best disposer of affairs”. When the Holy prophet Muhammad and his companions received the message of war in Hammra al- Assad, they said: “We put trust in Allah. Allah is sufficient for us and He is the best disposer of affairs”, he further said.
While describing the subject of love for Allah, the grand Sunni scholar in Iran said: “This is love that wakes people up for the Morning Prayers and makes for them Hajj and Zakah easy worships”.
He said that every sacrifice we make in life needs to be for the sake of Allah. Love of Allah requires from us to perform the obligations with sacrifice and devotion.
The outstanding Iranian Sunni leader said in his Friday prayer sermons in Zahedan: “When the Holy prophet, peace be upon him, was remembered in the presence of Mawlana Abdol-Aziz, (the founder of Darululoom Zahedan), he used to weep and cry”. These were conditions of Allah’s pure servants who made sacrifice for the sake of Allah.”
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said in his last points of Friday prayer sermon that hypocrites are not sincere in their love with Allah, their love is just on tongue.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid forbade the attendees from committing sins and emphasized: “As Muslims, we should avoid from committing sin and we have to obey Allah’s commands everywhere”.
“Believers must avoid barberry, murder, adultery, drinking alcohol, looting orphans’ property, addiction and etc. which are big sins in Islam,” he said.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid also said: “We should not take negative advantages of Allah’s respite and mercy because no one can tolerate Allah’s punishment. Don’t miss opportunities which Allah has given you as a chance in life.”
