Abdul Rahman Al Sudais

abdul rahman sudais

MAKKAH: Imam and Khatib at the Grand Mosque in Makkah Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais has warned Muslims against endangering the safety, stability and better interests of their countries.
“True patriotism is not shouting slogans but sincerity, positive approach, transparency and credibility. Real patriots should not trade national pride for the dictations of intruders,” said Sheikh Al-Sudais in his sermon at the Grand Mosque on Friday.
The sheikh also stressed the need for healthy national sentiments to protect the dignity, security, justice, discipline and peace of a country.
Al-Sudais urged Muslims to make concerted efforts to defend their nations and judiciously solve their issues.
The imam  warned people against the designs of the enemies of Islam to destabilize their countries, and called on believers to fear Allah in a world roiled with sedition, crises and radical alterations.
He demanded worshipers adhere to religious laws and avoid schism and disputes, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Friday.
He stressed the need to strengthen family ties so that family life is not wrecked by vicious influences.
He concluded the sermon with a prayer calling on Allah to protect the land of the two holy mosques and other Muslim countries from all forms of sedition and disturbances.
In the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, Sheikh Husain Al-Asheikh said the failure of rulers and administrators to discharge their duties with justice is a great calamity that leads to the degeneration of political, economic and social systems. Al-Asheikh said rulers should enforce total justice in all levels of administration. Injustice is one of the most abhorrent evils in the Islamic administrative system, he added.
“A ruler should listen to the needs of people and inquire about their conditions, and should never create a barrier between him and the people so that he becomes unaware of the true state of people,” he said.
