ISLAMABAD: On the auspicious day of Arafah, the annual sermon was delivered to millions of Muslim pilgrims gathered on the plains of Arafah, marking a significant moment in the Hajj pilgrimage on Saturday.

The sermon echoed themes of faith, obedience to Allah, and the pillars of Islam, reinforcing the core tenets of the Muslim faith. The sermon began with praises to Allah, highlighting His attributes as the Most Wise, Most Aware, Most Knowledgeable, and Most Capable.

Sheikh Maher Bin Hamad Al Muaiqly, Imam and preacher of the Grand Mosque, delivering the sermon at Masjid Namira, emphasized Allah’s control over the cosmos, citing Quranic verses to illustrate His omnipotence and the creation’s submission to His command: “He promptly covers the light of the day with the darkness of the night and has subjected the sun, the moon, and the stars to His command. To Him alone belong all creation and command. Blessed is Allah, the Lord of all creation.” [7:54]

He underscored the Qur’an’s role as a guide and mercy for humanity, meant to rectify their ways and lead them towards righteousness.

He highlighted the Qur’an’s guidance towards what is most upright and its promise of great rewards for those who perform righteous deeds. “Indeed, this Qur’an guides to what is most upright, and gives glad tidings to the People of Iman who perform righteous deeds, that for them alone will be a great reward.” [17:9]

Reaffirming the fundamental Islamic belief, Sheikh Maher testified to the oneness of Allah and the prophethood of Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him. He described the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him as a mercy to creation, a caller to all that benefits humanity and brings Allah’s mercy upon them.

Sheikh Maher reiterated the Five Pillars of Islam: the testimony of faith, prayer, Zakah, fasting during Ramazan, and the pilgrimage to Hajj.

Highlighting the Shariah’s emphasis on preserving religion, life, intellect, wealth, and honor, Sheikh Maher stressed the importance of these essentials for stability and prosperity.

The sermon ended with a call for forgiveness, safety, and blessings for all Muslims: “O Allah, forgive the Muslim men and women, and the men and women of Iman. Protect them from all evil. Preserve for them their religion, their safety, their lives, their wealth, their minds, and their honor.”
