Shaikh Abdol-Hamid pointed to the causes of human’s failures in different fields and considered sin and corruption as the most important causes of this failure.
He referred to the devil’s diverting plots from the path of Allah in his Friday speech of February 12, 2021 and said that mankind should trust in God to be protected from the temptations of Satan to be among the righteous people.
“The devil is a dangerous enemy. He wants to deceive humanity and make him ignore of God to be disturbed in both worlds”, Friday prayer leader of Sunnis in Zahedan said.
He continued: “When Satan was disappointed of God’s mercy, he decided to take humans to the hell. Satan compels the human soul to commit murder, adultery and all kinds of sins. The devil is awake when we are sleeping. Wherever we are, the devil has access, in the mosque, the bazaar, etc. The devil tries to divert us from the path of God”.
President of Darululoom Zahedan said: “Satan tempted Adam to eat from the forbidden tree and caused him to leave the heaven. Satan has sworn to God that he will not allow human beings to enter the Paradise except the righteous and sincere people to whom Satan has no access. Satan has no power to control over the righteous people .Let us be honest to God to be saved from the devil”.
He added: “Throughout history, what mankind has faced such as famine, earthquakes and so on was due to human’s actions. These are tests and lessons for human beings to realize their mistakes. Negligence, oppression and disobedience take away blessings; Adam’s slip caused him to be expelled from the heaven. Satan always tries to get people out of the Paradise and out of God’s mercy”.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid further said: “Satan adorns sins for people and pretends that God is merciful, when a person commits sin, Satan prevents him from repentance”.
“Be aware of the devil’s tricks. Let us be awake, repent and return to Allah to be among sincere servants of God”, he said.
Coronavirus is the result of oppression against Uighur and Rohingya Muslims
In another part of his speech, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid called COVID 19 the result of oppression, crime and injustice in the world.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid referred to the brutal crimes committed by the Chinese state against the Uighur Muslims and the crimes of the Myanmar rulers against the Rohingya Muslim minority, believing that the silence of other societies in the face of such oppressions was an obvious injustice.
He said that these oppressions were the result of the spread of COVID 19.
“Experts have traveled to China to investigate the root cause of the coronavirus, despite many efforts, they could not find the origin of this disease and are still confused,” he said.
“They had to travel to China and observe the situation of the oppressed Muslims of Uighurs to find out the origin of the Coronavirus. China has deprived Muslims of Uighur of their legal basic and international human rights and has cruelly attacked their religion, beliefs and culture”, said the most influential Iranian Sunni leader.
President of Darululoom Zahedan continued: “Chinese oppression against the Uighur Muslims was an unprecedented crime throughout the history. The Chinese did not respect human rights for many Muslims; they separated the children from their parents and the couple from each other. They imprisoned Muslims to teach them atheism and to change their beliefs, language and culture”.
Imam of the Grand Makki Mosque of Zahedan said: “The corona is the result of China’s oppression against Muslims and the result of the prayers of the oppressed women and children against the oppressors”.
‘The pest began from China and spread around the world’, he added more.
Referring to the recent military coup in Myanmar, Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said: “In the recent coup, the official government of Myanmar has been overthrown and the Prime Minister and some officials of Myanmar have been arrested”.
“Myanmar’s army and military have committed various cruel crimes against the Rohingya Muslim minority. Many Muslims in Myanmar were displaced just because they are Muslims. Their houses and many mosques were destroyed. The Prime Minister, who is now in prison, remained silent in the face of these crimes and even supported them, and now he himself has been arrested”, he said.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid forbade oppression and believed that the oppressor would eventually fail.
“The bloodshed that took place in the Middle East, and many powerful countries have been bombing the oppressed people and tested their weapons on innocents, today they are hiding in their homes of the fear of Coronavirus”, the eminent scholar of Sunnis in Iran said.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid concluded his points: “Coronavirus is the result of oppression. Throughout the history, mankind has been plagued by his own deeds and by committing sins”.
“To get rid of all these plagues and calamities, mankind should repent and seek forgiveness and return to God the almighty”, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said.
