Friday Sermon 7 March 2003.
And remember when you Lord declared 'If you are grateful I will bestow more on you but if you are ungrateful my punishment is terrible indeed.' (The Holy Quran. Ibrahim: 8). The Holy Prophet ? told us that in the eyes of Allah when mankind remembers Him it is being grateful and when it forgets Him it is in a state of ingratitude. At the fall of Mecca a triumphant Holy Prophet ? entered Mecca mounted on a camel, head bowed in humility to Allah reciting verses of Sura' al-Fat'h [The Victory]. The Holy Prophet ? enjoined that a gift is like a provision from Allah and that one should try and give a better gift in exchange and if that is not possible then one should verbally praise the gift. Another Hadith [Tradition] explains that Allah the Exalted considers kindness extended towards the sick and the hungry as if it is goodwill towards His Own Self. In the present day unstable financial state of affairs due to the ever decreasing value of currency often people end up paying more than they had initially borrowed. Whereas the Holy Prophet ? had imparted a solution to this hundreds of years ago in that his practice was to always pay back a little more than he had borrowed. The Holy Prophet ? would greet others with 'Assalamoalaikum warahamatullah' [Peace be to and the Mercy of Allah] and would leave it for the respondent of the greeting to add on Wa arakatahu [And on you be his blessings] in response. If someone presented a gift to the Holy Prophet ? out of what had been given to them as Alms he would accept it. With reference to the writings of Imam Razi (may Allah have mercy on him) he said that: Remembrance of Allah is an acknowledgment of Divine beneficence and it's practice enhances one's spiritual and physical blessings and further fortifies the love of Allah. (Fakhr al-Din al-Razi. 'Tafsir e Kabir: Mafatih al-Ghayb' ['The Large Commentary: Keys to the Unknown']). Khalifatul Masih I (may Allah be pleased with him) stressed the importance of Glorification of Allah remarked upon the correlation between the practice of Hamd [Praise] and Allah's beneficence. [Friday Sermon 4 July 1913. 'Khutbat e Noor'). The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said that: It is Allah's promise to increase and augment His favours on those who are grateful and those who in turn are kind and do favours to fellow human beings. (15 April 1908. Malfoozat v [Discourses]. 533). There are many incidents relating to the immense graciousness the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) showed in his dealings with his companions. Next an update on the 'Maryum Shadi Fund' [Maryam Marriage Fund] is that extraordinarily generous donations continue to pour in. I express my gratitude to Allah the Exalted for facilitating the materialization of this scheme.
