Khubta -E- Hajj 2009 at Arafat Part 3/5

In his Khutba-e-Hajj (Hajj Sermon) from Masjid-e-Nimra at Arafat, Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Sheikh Abdul Aziz said Islam renounces violence and terrorism in all its forms and those indulging in such acts are doing injustice to this great religion.

He said those who are harbouring plans to spread anarchy and chaos in the globe have, in fact, turned their backs to the teachings of the Messengers of Almighty Allah.

He said those preaching violence and misleading the youth are working against teachings of the religion.

The Imam said there was a need to adopt religious ethics in our individual and collective life and strict adhere to teachings of the religion. He said Islam is a religion of moderation and we should strike a balance in our lives.

He said the spirit of Islam was to establish peace in the world as only then family life can strengthen, mosques can be built and worship of Allah Almighty carried out. He said it has been clearly mentioned in the Holy Quran that Khilafat would be given to those who would turn chaos into peace in the world.

Sheikh Abdul Aziz referred to the difficulties posed to the Ummah because of the global developments and said we can face them squarely through cohesion and unity.

He said only a just economic system, propounded by Islam, can help address ills of unemployment and price-hike.

Imam Abdul Aziz also exhorted Muslims to strive for Rizk-e-Halal (fair earning), avoid spendthrift and share their wealth with those who are poor and indigent.

He said Islam is both an ideological and practical religion and we should follow its teaching in our lives.
