Friday Sermon 6 March 1998
It possesses clear proofs for mankind and is a guidance and a mercy for a people firm in faith. If who commit evil deeds think that We shall make them like those who believe and do good works their life and death being equal - Evil is what they judge. And Allah has created the heavens and the Earth with the truth so that every soul may be requited for what it sows; and they shall not be wronged. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Jathiya [The Curtsey]: 21 -23). The excerpts from the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) I present before the Jamat deeply relate to the themes of these verses. Allah the Almighty states that do those who indulge in all kinds of bad acts presume that We would treat them as We do those who believe and act righteously? سَاءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ This decision of theirs is a manifest evil. This alludes to the precept that their decision would fall back upon themselves. Secondly that this decision of theirs would reek havoc upon the world. 'Each of you should give precedence to the comfort of their brother over that of their own. Make true peace with Allah the Almighty and come back into His obedience. The wrath of Allah the Almighty is descending upon the Earth and only the ones coming into His presence in full repentance of their sins are saved from it'. Satan never goes anywhere near those who come into His presence being wholly penitent of their sins. He only comes where he can find a little bit of leeway. Bounties descend when God is given preference. His Holiness (peace be upon him) also advised constant repentance and Istighfar and much repetition of the prayer 'Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves'.* Even today when battling with Satan every person would have to come into the protection of this verse. In another excerpt His Holiness (peace be upon him) states that if one does not form a true bond of obedience with Allah the Almighty then Allah the Almighty is independent of any person. Thousands of sheep and goats are slaughtered daily but nobody takes mercy on them. Mankind today is being slaughtered like sheep and goats. Sometimes people worry at the slaughter of a sheep but nobody worries or cares when humans are slaughtered so how would such a God care for such as have no care for God's people and live without any feeling for the evil cruelties meted out to God's people? Then His Holiness (peace be upon him) states that 'One should be included in those [who are] dear to God so that any epidemic or calamity would not dare touch you.' This is a subject that can be understood by glancing at the cases of the devotees of the Jamat. His Holiness (peace be upon him) states that the Jamat should pay attention to avoid conversing with derision and mockery for a clear distinction can be drawn between refined and pure humour and words of mockery and insult because offensive talk in mockery always creates trouble. So begin journeying towards these things upon which the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) wants to see his Jamat whilst remaining in your stations. * They said 'Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves; and if Thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us we shall surely be losers'. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Araf [The Heights]: 23).
