Friday Sermon 30 January 1998
O ye who believe! When the call is made for the Prayer service on Friday hasten to the remembrance of Allah and abandon all business. That is better for you if you only knew. And when the Prayer service is finished then disperse in the land and seek of Allah's grace and remember Allah often that you may prosper. ('The Holy Quran'. Surah al Jummuah [The Friday Congregation]: 10, 11). These 2 holy verses taken from Surah al-Jummuah are the verses which are the theme of my sermon today. Allah the Almighty states 'O ye who believe!' إِذَا نُودِيَ لِلصَّلَاةِ مِن يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَذَرُوا الْبَيْعَ ۚ ['When the call is made for Prayer service on Friday hasten to the remembrance of Allah and abandon all business.'] Abandon all kinds of trade, and bartering. This is better for you if you only knew. Here all the implications of Jumma are implied. The age of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) is also an age of Jumma, an age that unites the former with the latter, this also includes the scheme of Waqf e Zindagi [Life Dedication]. Whenever you are called to commemorate God leave off everything and hearken unto this voice. This is also commanded on the exoteric level as stated later فَإِذَا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلَاةُ فَانتَشِرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَابْتَغُوا مِن فَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا ['And when the Prayer service is finished then disperse in the land and seek of Allah's grace and remember Allah often'] when the prayer has been offered then you are free to tarry in the land and seek the bounty of Allah the Almighty but do commemorate Him often. So this is also my advice for today and I hope that when you people disperse and celebrate the other joys of Eid you would be remembering Allah often. The time for Divine commemoration has not ended with the Jumma but continues throughout the Friday. May Allah the Almighty enable us to keep aloft the Divine commemoration wherever we are and in whatever state we may be.
