Emphasizing on following the character of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH and his Seerah, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid considered it as one of the biggest and lasting assets for Muslims.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid urged in his Friday speech of November 6, 2020 on practicing the character of the Holy Prophet PBUH in various aspects of one’s life.
“The pure life of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH is one of the lasting and very big assets of Muslims, which makes them in the both worlds happy. The character of the Prophet leads us towards Allah. We must practice the religion through the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH”, said the Friday prayer leader of Sunnis in Zahedan.
“The pure life of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH must be followed in monotheism, worship, transactions, happiness, sadness and so on”, the most influential Sunni leader of Iran said.
President of Darululoom Zahedan pointed out: “The prophets were different from us in monotheism. In monotheism, not only they denied polytheism, but also they attributed everything to Allah. The Prophet Ibrahim says: My God who has created me, guides me, gives me food and drink when I am hungry and thirsty, and heals me when I am sick. The scholars should explain the character of the prophets, especially the character of the Prophet Muhammad, to the people”.
He continued: “To achieve happiness, mankind must follow the prophets and practice the Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad. The character of the Prophet Muhammad is so comprehensive that includes the characters of all prophets”.
People of the world should have research on Qur’an and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH
Referring to the abrogation of other divine religions, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said: “Islam has abrogated all religions and the Holy Qur’an abrogated all divine books. If people choose any religion other than Islam, they will not reach Allah by the correct way. Allah accepts faith only through Islam”.
President of Darululoom Zahedan further stated: “As the ignorant people of the time of the Holy Prophet PBUH denied the Prophet and called him a magician, today some people deny and insult him too”.
“Blasphemy against the Prophet is a sign of ignorance and stupidity”, he added more.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid continued: “In order to achieve happiness in this world and the hereafter, human beings must follow the Prophet; otherwise their faith will not be accepted by God.
Unity is achieved by following character of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid referred to the differences among Muslims and said: “Unfortunately, Muslims are involved in disputes and differences; conflicts limit people’s activities”.
He said: “Today conferences are held about unity, but following the actual ways of unity is more important. There is discussion on unity today, this is good, but we should be honest and sincere about what we claim”.
The Friday Imam of Zahedan pointed out: “Unity is achieved when we are in the path of Islam and we follow the life of the Prophet. If our deeds are contrary to what we say, we are not honest to our claim of loving the Prophet. We must be honest in our words and deeds.”
Muslims must change their ways
President of Darululoom Zahedan pointed out: “Muslims should change their lives; chanting slogans will not solve the problems. A person who is involved in immorality, theft, robbery, drinking alcohol, adultery, gambling, unjust murder and all kinds of sins and claims to be a Muslim is lying; a Muslim must be honest by his words”.
“Hypocrisy has become common today. Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani says: “God helps those who act,” he concluded his points.
At the end of his speech, referring to the passing of Mawlana Mohammad Dehqan and Mufti Khaled Dehwari, of Iranian Balochistan and Shaikh Abdol-Qader Beizavi, a Kurdish Sunni scholar and Friday Imam of Urmia, (northwestern part of Iran) Shaikh Abdol-Hamid asked God Almighty for their full forgiveness of these prominent Sunni scholars.
