Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid described the vitalization of close relationship with Allah and His remembrance the most effective worship to uproot negligence. He explained Dhikr the enemy of sins in his Friday sermon of November 01, 2019.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said: “Unfortunately neglect has become common as everyone is involved in. We miss opportunities that Allah has given us in life; such as youth, health and so on.”
“Allah’s remembrance draws a person closer to Him; Allah tells us that I’m with my servant as long as s/he remembers Me; connecting with Allah removes neglects; neglect is very harmful which leaves a negative impact on human life,” Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said.
The Friday prayer Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan said: “To make our relationship stronger with Allah, we should always remember Him, do not forget or ignore Him even for a moment. When we cannot remember Him by tongue, then we can remember Him in heart”.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid continued: “As a Muslim we should remember Allah everywhere even though before entering bathroom and toilet. Seek refuge in Allah as the Holy prophet, peace be upon him taught us.”
President of Darululoom Zahedan encouraged the worshipers to focus on Allah’s creation. He said that thinking about Allah’s creation draws our attention to Him more.
“Allah’s remembrance empowers a person in his daily works, removes his weaknesses and protects him from sins and devil,” he said.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid added that the Holy prophet, peace be upon him, said: “The one who remembers Allah is alive and the one who does not is dead”. Allah’s remembrance revives the soul and refreshes the mind and body. All creatures praise Allah; the world and its parts work properly by the name of Allah and things are running by Him, all around the globe.”
Allah almighty says in the Holy Quran: وَإِنْ مِنْ شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَلَٰكِنْ لَا تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ
“And there is not a single thing but glorifies Him with His praise, but you do not understand their glorification”. Surah al-Israa, verse: 44.
Friday Imam of the Grand Makki Mosque said: “Allah Almighty never encouraged any worship to do much and numerously except His remembrance as He ordered “Remember Allah with much remembrance.”
“To remember Allah is not necessary to have ablution and it is allowed to remember Allah even with unclean body during ritual impurity; whenever you mention Allah in a gathering, He will mention you in a superior gathering among the angels and when you mention Him alone, He mentions you alone”, Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said.
Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid prohibited the worshipers from committing sins and obeying Satan and said: “Getting in touch with Allah causes a Muslim to do good deeds and it helps him in daily routines, while obeying Satan and tending towards sensual desires causes a person commit sins and throws him away from the path of Allah”.
Relationship with Allah brings tranquility in life
He added more: “Relationship with Allah brings tranquility in life, saves from temptation of devil and reveals Allah’s mercy, while obeying Satan increases vice and misdeeds creating various sins in society such as idolatry, adultery and drinking wine.”
The grand scholar of Sunnis in Iran said that Muslims must repent from committing sins and return to Allah in order to be saved from the devil’s tricks.
The most influential Iranian Sunni scholar encouraged for sending salutations to the Holy prophet, peace be upon him, especially on Fridays.
He said: “Ask Allah in failures and difficulties for help as the ancestors/Salaf did it; they used to say: “we put trust on Allah, Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposer of affairs”. When the Holy prophet Ibrahim and our beloved prophet and his companions, peace and blessings of Allah be upon them, were threatened by enemies, they said the same words.”
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said: “Ignorance is the root of every misery and failure; so do not forget Allah and always remember Him, you will receive rewards from Allah.”
Sistan-Baluchistan is safer than Tehran
The Friday prayer Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan pointed out to some negative propaganda against the situation of peace in the province of Sistan-Balochistan and urged that it was one of the safest provinces in Iran.
He said: “Some fanatics want to show this province unsafe, but I dare to say that Sistan-Baluchistan is safer than Tehran and some other provinces.”
The toll of road accident deaths in Sistan- Baluchistan is unpleasant
In the last part of his speech, Mawlana Abdol-Hamid expressed his anxiety over the increasing number fatal road accidents.
He said: “According to reports, 15 citizens lost their lives within 24 hours while in the last week more than 30 men and women and children lost their lived on the highways and roads of the province. We’d like to request drives to drive carefully and respect traffic regulations.”
“As well as, the traffic police should tighten controlling of roads and the authorities should extend narrow roads and double them,” Khateeb of Sunnis added more.
