MAKKAH, 31 August: Imam-e-Kaaba Dr. Shaykh Sa’d bin Nasir al-Shithri in his Hajj sermon Islam teaches peace and the peace only be found through religion.
While addressing over two million faithful at Arafat from Masjid-e-Nimra, Imam-e-Kaaba called the Muslims to evade all kind of prejudice against any Muslim or non-Muslim. He urged the faithful to keep fearing Allah and adopt piety. Prodding the path of Allah is the only way of emancipation, the Imam told the believers. “Islam forbids any excess against any Muslim or non-Muslim. We must fully comply the teachings of Sharia,” the Imam added.
“Save yourselves from nationalism, ethnicity and grouping. Islam prohibits terrorism, violence and bloodshed,” the Sheikh said. He called upon media of the Muslim world to play role for the unity of Muslim Ummah. “The peace and tranquility of mind can only be found through the religion,” he said.
Dr Saad Bin Nasir Al-Shatari asked Muslims to play their role to establish peace in the world and not to commit excesses against each other and against non-Muslims. He said Muslims should contribute to establish a society based on equality and free from ignorance and heresy. He said a Muslim society is based on discipline, which is the only way for progress and prosperity.
He prayed for the return of Masjid-e-Aqsa to Muslims and freedom of Palestinian people.
Around one hundred and seventy-nine thousand Pakistanis are among the two million Muslims in Maidan-e- Arafat to perform the Waqoof-e-Arafat, the key ritual of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
The pilgrims after listening to the Hajj sermon will offer Zohar and Asar prayers together and stay at Arafat till the call for Maghrib prayer.
After Azaan-e-Maghrib, they will leave for Muzdalfa where they will offer Maghrib and Isha prayers and spend the night under the open sky.
