"And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming The Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad (Muhammad The Praised One). But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said: "This is evident sorcery!" [Surah Al Saff verse 6]
Alal Muslimeena Jami'ah! Today Alhumdoelillah, we are celebrating the auspicious and Mubarak day of Jummah, we are celebrating our efforts in worshipping Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala. We are celebrating His Infinite Mercy, His Bounty, His Protection and his Forgiveness from the agony of Jahannum and from the ongoing hatred and Fithnah of the vowed enemies of Islam towards Islam, towards our Beloved Nabee - Rahmatul Liel Ala'meen Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam and towards the Muslim Ummah. Today, we are celebrating our Islam; our being the family of the greatest faith ever revealed to mankind; our being believers in the most beautiful and comprehensive scripture that ever descended from the highest heaven to earth, and being the Ummah of the greatest man who walked upon the face of this Dunya.
Alhumdoelillah! We believe in the Oneness of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala; we bow and bend only to Him and to Him Alone. Today, we are celebrating the greatest blessing of our lives: our Islam – the Din of Truth. Islam is the faith that defines us. Islam defines who we are. Islam defines our identity. Islam is the religion that Almighty Allah Most Merciful has chosen for us, has perfected for us, and has blessed us with, as the Most Noble and Holy Qur’an so eloquently expresses in part of verse 3 of Surah Al Ma’idah:
“This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My
Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.”
Islam is a favour and a great Bounty from Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen. All we have to do is to show our gratitude for this great blessing and say as we are commanded in verse 43 of Surah Al Ahraf: “Praise be to Allah Who has guided us to this felicity: Never could we have found guidance, had it not been for the guidance of Allah.”
Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala informs us with words of Truth and the expression of fact. He informs us very clearly in verse 50 of Surah Al-Qasas:
"Allah does not guide people to (Dhulm) wrong-dong".
And He tells us in verse 40 of Surah Ash Shura:
"Allah does not love those who do wrong (Dhulm)".
And His Beloved Nabee Muhammad Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam said: "Rabbul Dhulumatoon Youmal Qiyama'h". Dhulm, injustice, tyranny, oppression and maltreatment become darkness on the day of Resurrection. And in a Hadith Qudsi Almighty Allah Most Exalted and His prophet Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam say: "Ya Ibadi Inni gharramtu Dhulma ala nafsi wa'ja'al tuhu baynakum ma gharrama fala tha'da lamoo." My subjects, my servants! I have rendered injustice by Myself as being prohibited. I have rendered the performance of injustice personally. No injustice will be done by Me. I have made Dhulm (wrong-doing) Haraam as concerns Me says Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala meaning that He will never be involved in any acts of Dhulm, injustice or oppression.
And I have rendered Dhulm as a matter of illegality, illegitimacy and prohibition among you. "Fala tha'da lamoe" Hence do not be party to the acts of Dhulm and do not partake in the system of Dhulm (wrongdoing). These Aya'ts, Hadith and Hadith Qudsi are a direct address to the established Dhulm in the world today. But, there are opinion makers, there are publicists and there is a media within a strategy that don't permit Muslims to identify that Dhulm prevalent throughout the world. It is forbidden for you and for me to begin to identify the establishment of Dhulm on a global scale but we are all welcomed to try to focus on Dhulm on a local scale. Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala wants us to open our eyes and see this Dhulm in full scope and with all the colours of the spectrum.
World attention has been fixated these past two days with the release of the crude anti-Islam movie that has caused chaos throughout the Muslim world. This low budget movie titled "Innocence of Muslims" insults Islam and the Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam. Rest assured that this blasphemous piece of garbage will once again have the media mouthpieces, gurus and moguls pointing accusations, that Muslims are intolerant and do not respect freedom of speech. We say to these hateful blasphemers with a full measure of our minds and our hearts that we will not tolerate any insults against our religion and against our Beloved Nabee Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam.
