Friday Sermon: Al-Aziz - The Mighty

March 1st, 2002

Continuing with the theme of the Divine attribute of Al-Aziz (The Mighty) Hazoor delivered his Friday Sermon presenting the principle with reference to the Quranic verses that mention the said attribute. Hazoor said that in its application to Allah, the attribute of 'The Mighty' becomes free from the concept of any force or coercion and connotes an Honourable and Mighty Being.

Hazoor explained that there is salvation in the sincere expression of La ilaha illalla (there is none worthy of worship save Allah) and that it is indeed the précis of the message of Islam. Hazoor also expounded the healing properties in the recitation of the Surah Fatiha.

Hazoor said that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be on him) had said that the message of Islam would reach the point where night and day meet, and that there was honour for those who would submit to the Truth.

Commenting on the concept of Paradise Hazoor said that therein shall be a continual transformation by Allah and that Allah's capacity to bring this about was infinite.

Hazoor further explained the attribute of Al Aziz in the context of the Quranic perspective of the life and death of Jesus (on whom be peace) and further elucidated it by quoting from the writings of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace).
