Describing the cognition of Almighty Allah as one of the biggest pivots of the religion of Islam, Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid stressed the need to contemplate about the greatness, attributes, and creatures of the Almighty in order to get a closer acquaintance with Him.
Addressing the Friday worshipers of Zahedan on the 7th day of the first month of 2022, the most influential Iranian Sunni leader said: “Cognition of God is the biggest axes of the religion of Islam. However, we cannot understand the essence of God, but we can know Allah through His attributes, creatures, and greatness and with the help of the Qur’an and the Hadiths. We know Allah Almighty through His power, His creatures, and His commands that are running in the heavens and earth.”
“Earth, seas, marine and terrestrial creatures, plants, underground resources, mountain mines, light of the moon and the sun and etc. are signs of Allah’s power that makes us realize Him and believe in His power. This universe system is a sign of the power and greatness of Almighty Allah. Allah has created them for the benefit of human beings. The creation of humanity is also the sign of His power and greatness,” said the Friday prayer leader of Sunnis in Zahedan.
He continued: “Allah is the most powerful. He has created humankind from a drop of water. He turns a drop of water into blood and blood into flesh, then He forms the skeleton and other parts of the human body. God Almighty has created humanity in the most beautiful shape. Humanity is so weak that cannot create a living, even a single fly or mosquito etc.”
“God has such great attributes that the wisdom of humanity is amazed to understand them. He hears all the sounds of His creation at once and controls them all. If all creatures intend different things at the same time, Almighty Allah is aware of all these intentions. God has complete control over the whole world. All powers are powerless before the power of God,” president of Darululoom Zahedan further said.
He added more: “Alas! Some people imagine that God does not see them and is unaware of their actions, while God is aware and controls everything all the time.”
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid insisted on thanking Allah for His blessings and said: “The Prophet has taught us to thank God always. We should not forget God in any moment or situation because everything is in the hands of Him.”
What is important, is to imitate the Companions and Households of the Prophet PBUH
Referring to the anniversary of the passing of Sayyidah Fatimah, the daughter of the Prophet peace be upon him, observed in Iran, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said: “The memory of Fatimah is always remains in our minds, although there is disagreements among historians about the date of Fatima’s death”.
“Fatimah was a great woman of Islam. She was the one, whom the Prophet PBUH whispered her during the days of his illness, saying: You will be the first person from my Households who dies after me and joins me. It is narrated that the Prophet said to Fatima: Don’t you want to be the first person from my family to join me after my death?” said the prominent Sunni leader of Iran.
He urged: “As Muslims, we should follow the way of the Companions and the Households of the Holy prophet. It is an honor for us to imitate the Companions and family of the Prophet and the righteous people.”
Referring to the recent rainfalls in Balochistan, which pleased livestock and farmers, but also caused damage in some southern areas of Balochistan, Mawlana Abdol-Hamid said: “After all the people and experts were disappointed with this year’s rains, Allah sent down the rain and His mercy.”
He said: “Although, the rain caused some damages especially in the southeast parts of both Iranian and Pakistani Balochistan, but the benefits and blessings of this rain, which is the mercy of God, are great; all people should be thankful to God for His blessings.”
The Iranian Sunnis’ leader concluded his Friday speech of Zahedan by emphasizing on cooperating with the Mohsenin Charity Organization, affiliated to Darululoom Zahedan, in order to help the flood victims, saying: “The Mohsenin Charity Organization is providing aids in the flood-hit areas and needs your cooperation and help. I insist everyone on helping the flood victims through this charity organization and other authentic trustable organizations.”
