Shaikh Abdol-Hamid termed ‘accurate faith and tenets’ and ‘relying on Allah’ the biggest wealth and key of prosperity.
He was talking to the worshipers in Zahedan, southeastern Iran on Friday 31st March, 2017.
Khateeb and Friday Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan began his speech by recitation of the Noble Qur’anic verses: «وَإِذْ يَرْفَعُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ الْقَوَاعِدَ مِنَ الْبَيْتِ وَإِسْمَاعِيلُ رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ*رَبَّنَا وَاجْعَلْنَا مُسْلِمَيْنِ لَكَ وَمِنْ ذُرِّيَّتِنَا أُمَّةً مُسْلِمَةً لَكَ وَأَرِنَا مَنَاسِكَنَا وَتُبْ عَلَيْنَا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ» and said: “The holy land of Haramain is the land of faith, tenets and relying on the Almighty. The building of Ka’bah by the prophets Ibrahim and Isma’eel, peace be upon them, and their prayers over there allude to faith on God and relying on Him.”
“Madinah is the city of faith and reliance, too. This is the city of the prophet when he was forced to leave Makkah, he migrated to Madinah. The land of Haramain is the full of blessings due to the prayers of the prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him. He prayed to Allah for the spiritual and material development of Makkah,” Shaikh Abdol-Hamid added more.
He further said: “All personalities got prosperity in the history just due to their strong faith and relying on the Almighty. Reliance on materiality has been common among people, too. While materiality is a transient, vain and worthless thing.”
“The nations which rely on materiality and worldly things instead of the Almighty, they will be destroyed. They may enjoy for some days the luxuries of the worldly life, but when they close eyes from the world, they will see what they have collected for their endless life,” the rector of Darululoom Zahedan urged.
He called ‘faith’ and ‘reliance on God’ the biggest wealth for mankind and said: “The men and women who enjoy faith and correct tenets have the biggest wealth. The people who have recognized their real Lord and they know the management of the both worlds is with the Sublime, they have got a great wealth.”
Counting some examples for the reliance on God, the Friday Imam of the Sunni community pointed: “The prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him, who is the result of the prayers of the prophet Ibrahim PBUH was the symbol of faith, sincerity and reliance. He built the faith of the Companions. Sahabah had such a strong faith that none of other members of Muslim Ummah can reach to their status after them. They were trained directly by the prophet PBUH himself.”
In another part of his speech, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid alluded to the national day of Islamic Republic in Iran and said: “12 Farvardin is a historical and national day for the Iranian nation. On this day the Iranian nation cast its vote in favor of the system of Islamic republic in referendum.”
“This important day is an indelible day in the history of Iran and world. On 1st April 1979, the Iranian nation preferred a religious establishment to any other system of governing,” the eminent Islamic scholar made it clear.
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid alluded to the Iran-Saudi talks about Hajj and expressed his hope for re-opening of Hajj and Umrah operation for Iranian pilgrims.
