Expressing his views on the importance of work and Halal income, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid called on the rich investors and investors to create jobs for the jobless citizens.
Urging on obtaining Halal sustenance in his Friday sermon of 22 April, 2016, he said, “Islam has strictly urged on Halal (legal) income and sustenance that has influences on good deeds. Good deed and Halal daily bread are tied together; Halal income’s result can be seen within good deeds and illicit (Haram) daily bread brings different problems, diseases and makes the man deprived of the good deeds.”
“Islam strongly forbids people from sloth and idleness urging on work and struggle to earn Halal daily bread. The prophet, peace be upon him, has opposed beggary; according to a Hadith, the one who obtains his daily bread by beggary, he would be resurrected without flesh on their faces,” the Friday Imam of Sunnis in Zahedan added more.
He further said, “A wise person should work hard for the both worlds; for this mortal world to gain Halal income and daily bread and the efforts for the immortal world should be by carrying out good deeds. Striving to obtain Halal bread is an obligation.”
Underlining on the creation of job, Shaikh Isma’eelzahi said, “Unfortunately unemployment rages in Sistan-Baluchistan. There are no enough factories and workshops in the province. The government forms infrastructures, and wealthy people and private sectors should activate different workshops and mines to create jobs for the unemployed citizens.”
“I’d like to invite all investors inside and outside of the country to come back to the province and invest here. All the authorized offices and personalities support the investors. Unemployment brings poverty that is the cornerstone of many problems and vices,” the eminent Iranian Sunni scholar said.
He concluded his points by decrying “robbery” and “thievery”, and called on parents to be cautious on their children to get themselves from criminal gangs. Tribal elders are requested to not support thieves and criminals.
Ahl-us-Sunnah considers love of Sahabah and Ahl-ul-Bait their salvation
Pointing out to the birthday of Ali bin Abi-Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, that has been named the ‘Day of Father’ in Iran, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid said, “Sayyidana Ali (Radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was one of the prominent companions. He was the son-in-law of the prophet, peace be upon him, husband of Fatimah and father of Hassan and Hussein, may Allah be pleased with them.
“The love of Ali is in the hearts of each and every Muslim in the world. Sunni Muslims consider the love of the households of the prophet a reason for their salvation. Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, is an example for all righteous people,” he added more.
Islamic councils, a flash of people’s rule on their destiny
The rector of Darululoom Zahedan alluded to the foundation day of Islamic councils in Iran and said, “The 28th April is the foundation day of Islamic councils in Iran. Islamic council is a flash of the people’s rule on their own destiny and fate. The national constitution of Iran also urges on the rule of people.”
“Despite some problems, formation of Islamic councils of cities and villages has brought many advantages for the country,” Shaikh Abdol-Hamid underlined.
