Referring to the importance of taking responsibility in the society and doing reform activities, Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid considered human’s success in fulfilling his mission and responsibility, in his Friday speech of January 15, 2021 in Zahedan.
He emphasized on thinking for the success of the Hereafter life and urged on doing the good and forbidding the evil, helping the poor and needy people.
“Mankind has a mission and a duty that other creatures don’t have such a responsibility; human beings are bestowed logic and wisdom”, said the Friday prayer leader of Sunnis in Zahedan.
“Allah the Almighty has given the mankind an important mission and a big responsibility. Human being with his intellectual power could conquer other creatures, even has tried to reach the moon, stars and other planets and to capture them and to take benefit of them”, president of Darululoom Zahedan said.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid continued: “Mankind has come to purify himself, improve his life and the life of others in this world and in the Hereafter life”.
The most influential Iranian Sunni leader said: “Unfortunately, today people do not think much about their responsibility and don’t care how to worship God. Today, most of the people in the world are unaware of their responsibility. In some places, laws are enacted that only consider the pleasure of human beings and have no other benefit to the society”.
“The prophets were the best teachers of humanity and they were in close contact with God. Human being is the best creature of Allah the Almighty. The dignity of mankind is to fulfill his task and mission”, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said.
“Allah has honored mankind and made him His successor to carry out His commands on the earth, to avoid corruption, and observe the rights of God and the rights of the people. A person who follows Satan and the devil, commits oppression, sin and disobeys Allah, s/he will be defeated in this world and will be thrown into the Hell in the Hereafter, even if s/he conquers the world and has a high position in the world”, he added more.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid emphasized: “Claiming to be a Muslim and claiming for the love of the prophets and the love of righteous people alone is not enough. God Almighty sends a person who has also claimed to be a Muslim to the Hell, because he committed murder, kidnapping and etc.”
Friday Imam of Zahedan continued: “God has given us wisdom to think about the interest of our life and not to be deceived by the materials of the world. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: I know and I have seen things that you do not know and have not seen. If you had known and seen them, you would have laughed less and cried more”.
He further emphasized: “People’s negligence is due to the fact that they have not seen the Heaven and Hell; they do not know what is going on in the grave. Allah the Almighty showed the Hell and Paradise to the Prophet, who was honest and God and His servants affirm his sincerity and his high capacity”.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid continued: “We should all cry over our sins, do good deeds and advise others for good deeds, avoid sins and forbid others from committing sin.”
Imam of the Grand Makki Mosque of Zahedan emphasized on the necessity of giving alms and taking care of the poor needy people and said: “We should take care of the poor and needy, help the orphans and build schools and mosques.”
Concluding his points by emphasizing Muslims on performing their duties and responsibilities in the society, Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid stressed on helping others, observing justice, doing one’s duty, showing mercy to the weak, doing good and forbidding the evil. He believed that fulfilling such a responsibility elevates a mankind to the high and excellent degrees.
