Referring to the increase of crises, problems and anomalies in societies, the most influential Iranian Sunni leader considered the intense love of children and wealth as two factors of crisis in societies which ruin the human life.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid was talking to tens of thousands of worshippers in Zahedan’s biggest Friday gathering on May 13, 2022.
Calling on for solutions to get rid of pests and disasters, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said: “The love of children and capital have increased the problems in societies and have made many people hypocritical”.
“Problems increase in society when people get involved in the love of children and capital, and love the material things of the world more than Allah. That is why Allah Almighty warns on avoiding the intense love of wealth and children, and inspires on getting benefits of Allah’s lasting blessings. Allah Almighty commands the people to prepare for the hereafter life”, said the Friday prayer leader of Sunnis in Zahedan.
The president of Darululoom Zahedan described different types of worship as the remembrance of Allah and said: “Prayers, alms, paying Zakah, taking care of the needy people, keeping horses for jihad, and obeying Allah are the remembrance of the Almighty. Those who save their wealth and money and don’t pay Zakah, they don’t pay the rights of the people and the rights of children, the action of such people causes to problems in society. Also, the money that is earned through illegitimate ways such as bribery, false oaths, and betrayal and so on such capital causes loss and destruction”.
President of Darululoom Zahedan emphasized on obeying the orders of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH in all aspects of life, in dealing with others and in morality.
He mentioned morality as the most effective reason of promoting the religion of Islam and said: “Treat people well as the Companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH did. The behavior of the Companions caused non-Muslims to convert to Islam”.
“Once a Jew asked the Prophet PBUH for a loan with harsh words and impolitely; the Companions wanted to punish him, but the Prophet PBUH did not allow them to do that and said: The rightful owner has the right to speak. Then the Prophet ordered the Companions to give him more than his loan”, said the prominent Sunni scholar of Iran.
He added more: “Once the Caliph Ali’s armor cloth was lost, and then was found in the hands of a Jew. The Jew claimed that the cloth belonged to him. The issue was referred to the judge Shuraih, who was appointed by Caliph Omar. Shuraih ruled in favor of the Jew. Sayyidana Ali, who was the caliph and one of the greatest Companions, was not upset by this judgment and accepted the judgment with full satisfaction. The Jew was influenced by the justice of Islam and the capacity of the Companions and the great morality of the Caliph Ali and embraced Islam.”
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid emphasized on honesty, justice, obedience to God, and forbade the intense love of capital and children that drive neglecting the remembrance of God Almighty.
The sanctity of languages, clothes and cultures must be preserved
Pointing out to the insult to Baloch women’s clothing in the series of “Made in Iran 3”, which was recently released, the most influential Iranian Sunni leader said: “Recently, a drama series has been released in Iran, in which Baloch women’s dress was insulted. Such an action has hurt the feelings of many people. The MPs also protested to this issue”.
“Relevant officials should take control over filmmakers and producers forbidding them from insulting the language, clothing and culture of Iranian ethnic communities”, the most prominent Iranian Sunni leader insisted.
“The sanctity of culture, language and clothing of all nations and ethnicities must be protected”, he underlined.
In meeting with the president Raisi the livelihood problems and concerns of the people were raised
Pointing out to the recent meeting of Iranian Sunni scholars with President Raisi in Tehran, the Iranian Sunnis’ leader said: “This week, we met with the president Raisi in Tehran. In this visit, economic and livelihood problems were raised. The issue of engaging capable people of different ethnicities in official positions of the country was discussed. Mr. Raisi stated that solving the problems and concerns of the people were in his plans”.
“People’s problems should be raised through different channels and means to the officials. Officials must be determined to solve problems”, said Imam of the Grand Makki Mosque of Zahedan.
The Friday Khateeb of Zahedan advised people to save on livelihoods by saying: “Save water, bread and all items in livelihood and avoid extravagance. All of us should save water and bread”.
“The government should quickly resolve the living problems of the people”.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid emphasized on productive works and said: “I advise farmers and stock raisers to focus on productive works”.
To eliminate sanctions and solve economic and living problem, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid advised the people to repent to Allah Almighty in order to solve all problems.
