A welcome change: Cleric preaches ‘Huqooq ul Ibaad’
CHITRAL: Jamat Islami party held a week long Fehm e Quran (understanding of the Holy Quran) preaching session starting daily after fajr prayers for 90 minutes. Prominent scholar Molana Muhammad Ismail was the preacher.
What made this preaching week different from the usual and standard preaching sessions one experiences everywhere, was that the preacher solely dwelt on the rights of human beings (Huqooq ul Ibaad) throughout his preaching lessons.
It was indeed a breath of fresh air and a true narrative of Islam. As a rule, such sessions restrict the preaching to human beings obligations towards the rights of Allah Almighty (Huqooq Allah) which in other words means performance of religious rituals, but completely ignore the rights of Humanity and Allah’s creations as ordained in Islam. The result is before us.
Molana Ismail clearly mentioned that anyone under the impression that committing sins against huqooq ul Ibaad and then hoping that the sins would be washed off by saying prayers, going for Haj or performing other rituals are? mistaken, as Allah Almighty in The Holy Quran has clearly said that He would not forgive sins against huqooq ul Ibaad.
Participants thanked the Molana for clearing their concepts and vowed to try and honour ‘huqooq ul Ibaad’ from here on.? .. CN report, 25 Sep 2019
