Friday Sermon 23 May 1997
Say ‘O mankind! Truly I am a Messenger to you all from Allah to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the Earth. There is no God but He and He gives life and death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger the Prophet the unlettered one who believes in Allah and His words and follow him that you may be guided aright. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Araf [The Heights]: 159). This verse makes a universal declaration of Tawhid [Divine Unity]. Tawhid alone can remove the problems of the whole world and the differentiation of colour and creed and geographic divisions. By revealing the Holy Prophet ﷺ to be unlettered it is revealed here that he did not receive knowledge from any other person and was not under the influence of any nation. It was because he loved Allah and Allah loved him that he learnt the colours of Allah and Allah taught His colours to him. This is the very central point which it is important to remember. No relationship can join one person to another but through an affiliation to the attributes of God. Allah has a connection with all His creatures. There is only one being who gives life. Being introduced as such through a general declaration it is stated that 'I come from Him and I possess the attributes that are life-giving attributes'. His bringing to life is the adopting of the attributes of the Omnipotent. It is impossible for the whole world to turn to him if Muhammad the Prophet of Allah was lacking in the attributes which make no distinction of any kind in terms of colour or creed in humanity and these attributes are the attributes of God. No American, Englishman, Chinese, or Japanese adheres to the Holy Prophet ﷺ as the Prophet of Arabia. None was observed in him other than a person representing Allah. This is a given precept of the Messengers. They saw the shades of Divinity in the attributes. But it is regrettable that that they did not understand that a person would arise from the midst of Arabia who would become an international personality due to his grounding in the Godly attributes. The Holy Prophet ﷺ erased the colours of the nations by manifesting these attributes of God which are universal attributes . It is important to erase the differentiation between nations but only through Tawhid. Leaving this you cannot eradicate the national prejudices. Tawhid also possesses a distinction that the nations would react to if grasped for example the clash of languages and colours. This is among the Signs of God. This difference does not negate Tawhid instead it gives a message that O the standard bearers of Tawhid! Never try to remove the colours and creeds and languages because they are made by Allah the Almighty. Create a bouquet of Tawhid that accommodates their individuality. The Caliph of Muhammad the Messenger of Allah ﷺ or the Caliph of his Caliph always possesses a manifestation of Godly attributes that enable him to observe colours and creeds but not as through the eyes of others but through his own eyes and sees them as his own. This personality cannot be created through effort. It rises from within. It relates to the essence of Allah. If you are loyal to Allah it is a given for this personality be born in you. Do not emerge possessing any national characteristic but emerge possessing the attributes of Tawhid. So that the world should see that you are gracious, and that you are merciful, that you are bountiful. That you have a relationship with the sinful and the weaklings. That all who surround you derive from your munificence. Emerge with this personality and it would be impossible for any nation of the world to deny you. Produce scenes of unity in your countries that unite the whole world. I also remind you to pay attention to the completion of the 100 Mosques Construction Scheme. The collection of funds and the purchase of land is required for the completion its various stages. About the demise of Hazrat Syeda Bushra Begum (Mehr Apa) who possessed beautiful qualities in her offerings to the Community I announce DM.300000 on behalf of the deceased Hazrat Syeda Mehr Apa for Germany's 100 Mosques Construction Scheme so it would be like her offering a share of DM.3000 for every mosque. I also promise DM.50000 from myself and appeal to the people of the Community in Germany to take part in the funding scheme without it being a detriment to the other contributions however analysing their state of affairs they should not promise more than they are able. This does not behove a believer rather continue praying for the increasing of your ability. We are to enter the next century in a way that the world would be seeing us grand and triumphant.
