Sheikh Abdurrahman al-Shuraim - 14 Muharram 1436

His Eminence Sheikh Abdurrahman al-Shuraim - may Allah protect him - delivered this Friday Khutbah entitled “Maintaining Society’s Security” in which he dealt with the need to preserve security in society. He focused on the fact that maintaining security is at the root of all good benefiting. He made it clear that security is the responsibility of each member of the Ummah and highlighted the importance of intellectual security, moral security, etc. for social order.

O People! I exhort you and myself to observe Taqwa (fear of disobeying divine commands) vis-à-vis Allah Almighty, hold fast to His firm bond, grab His indissoluble link, and commit yourself to the Jama’ah (the Sunni Muslim community), for Allah lends hand only to the Jama’ah. Beware fabricated inventions in religion, for every fabricated invention is a Bid’ah (i.e. innovation, undesirable belief or ritual appended to religion) and every Bid’ah is misguidance:

Surat Al-Raad, Verse 13: "…And He is Mighty in strength and Severe in punishment".

"And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), fears Allah, and keeps his duty (to Him), such are the successful ones." [Al-Noor: 52]

Devoid of security, human life, with all its modern conveniences and welfare facilities, is but utter deception ... deception ... deception. It still remains as vulnerable as a premature newborn baby. Likewise, sleep in insecure conditions is indeed anxiety and insomnia. Worship without security is also liable to distraction, as worshippers on their guard keep turning their faces in all directions. As a rule, mankind is in dire need of security, whose attainment is a direct reflection of the nature and degree of their own faith, for whoever embraces faith will enjoy security and whoever enjoys security will benefit from advancement. In fact, there will be no stability in life without this pyramidal view: faith, security, and advancement: read more

During an Army war game a commanding officer’s jeep got stuck in the mud. The C.O. saw some men lounging around nearby and asked them to help him get unstuck.

“Sorry sir”; said one of the loafers, “but we’ve been classified dead and the umpire said we couldn’t contribute in any way.” The C.O. turned to his driver and said;

“Go drag a couple of those dead bodies over here and throw them under the wheels to give us some traction.
