Alluding to the critical economic situation in Iran in a part of his Friday speech of Oct. 23, 2020, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid stressed that Iranian officials must think of ways to save the country from economic failures.
“The current economic situation in the country is critical. People are facing a lot of sufferings and problems. They have lost their wealth and properties”, said the most influential Iranian Sunni leader.
President of Darululoom Zahedan continued: “Country’s economic problems have not only been resolved, but are still spreading. Officials must observe people’s critical situation and think of an urgent solution. In the current situation, the authorities must try to save the country from crises and failures”.
Referring to the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH, Friday prayer leader of Sunnis in Zahedan said: “We are in the days of Rabi ‘al-Awal, the month of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH. We hear discourses about unity in these days, but unfortunately some are not willing to maintain unity”.
“Muslims are mostly divided into different sects and groups today. In such a situation, the Islamic Ummah needs to be united more than ever”, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid urged.
I’m good and healthy
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid continued his speech by referring to his medical trip to Turkey and said: “I had a trip to Turkey for treatment due to some illnesses.”
“Praise be to Allah the Almighty, thanks to God and thanks to you dear people for your good prayers for me. I appreciate you all. I am still on medical leave. May Allah Almighty bless us all with the best of His mercies”, he said.
At the end of his speech, the Imam of the Grand Makki Mosque of Zahedan pointed to the passing of Shaikh Abdol-Hakeem Salehi, a prominent Sunni scholar of southern Balochistan of Iran/Konarak and prayed for him to be blessed by Allah the Almighty.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid also pointed to the illness of Mawlana Mohammad Dehqan of Gosht, eastern part of Baluchistan and Shaikh Abdol-Rahman Mohebbi (prominent teacher of Hadith in Darululoom Zahedan). He prayed for the healing of these two prominent Sunni scholars.
