Summary of Jummah Khutbah delivered by Sheikh Dr. Abdul Rehman Al Sudais on 13 Rabi Al Awwal 1442 corresponding to 30 October 2020
Sheikh Sudais: “Brothers of Faith, Since more than fourteen centuries of the mission of the Master of the Apostles, May blessings and Peace be upon him, his beautifully embellished beauty has perfumed the countries and places with the realities of awe and beauty, fear and majesty, and the wisdom that is revealed through his words and deeds witnessed by many”
The ummah’s prayer and love for its Messenger and Beloved, may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him, his biography, and his fragrant virtues is not a connection of times and occasions. Rather, it is a close connection in all circumstances and all affairs and conditions of life until death.
Sheikh Sudais spoke of the qualities of Prophet Muhammad (May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him): When people hear about the Messenger’s honourable qualities, their hearts are enlivened just as the ground is after the rainfall. All goodness, guidance, and moderation can be found in what was narrated about him. He was sound in his physical form as well as his conduct. When silent, his appearance was awe-inspiring. When he spoke, he was enveloped by gracefulness. He was the most elegant of people when at a distance, and the finest and clearest when up close.
Ali (R.A) described the Prophet (May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) by saying, “He was not very tall or very short, he had wide palms and feet, his head was large, his joints were large, and he had a long thin line of hair from his chest to his midsection.”
Hassan ibn Thabit said about the Prophet in lines of poetry conveying the meaning, “My eyes never saw anyone better than you, and women have not given birth to anyone better looking than you. You were created without blemish, as though you were made just the way you wanted to be.”
People of the Pure Prophets! (May Allah bless them all) “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” “We, in the name of one billion and eight hundred million Muslims, condemn and denounce in the strongest terms the insults of prophecies and messages, especially our Prophet Muhammad.” The cartoons and caricatures are offensive and outrageous and are a form of terrorism, a form of hate-fueled extremism and abhorrent racism, not freedom of expression!
Directing insults or mockery of religious sanctities and symbols is the transgression of morals and customs and is repercussive for its owner, because freedom of expression must take into account human values that are based on respect for the feelings of others, and when they deviate from those values, they offend the moral meaning of freedoms and the ideals of these offenses
Extremist ideas who want to spread an atmosphere of hatred among human societies and Islam is innocent of all this and that, and it is innocent of accusations of terrorism being attached to it. It is a religion of tolerance, compassion, and cohesion, and it does not contain terrorism, extremism, sabotage, mockery or ridicule, or a distinction between the prophets and messengers of Allah Almighty.
