Further expounding the Divine attribute of Al Nur or The Light, today Hazoor elucidated verse (66:9) of Surah Al Tahrim in his Friday Sermon. The verse explicates the spiritual development of believers in this life and the continuation of it in the life after death, in terms of the believers’ desire to be forgiven and to acquire and further excel in Nur.
Hazoor recounted that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be on him) said that on the Day of Judgment he would recognize and identify his ummah (people) for their books of deeds would be handed to them in their right hands and there would be Nur (Light) running before them.
Hazoor said that the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) further explained this and wrote that people who possessed the Nur light of faith in this world would be as if immersed in this Nur on the Day of Judgment and they would be beseeching their Lord to make this Nur reach the point of excellence
The Jumu'ah (Friday) prayer is one form of congregational worship in Islam. It takes place every Friday. Regular attendance at the Jumu'ah prayer is enjoined on the believer. According to a Saying of Muhammad(sa) this congregational prayer is twenty-five times more blessed than worship performed alone. (Bukhari)
“O ye who believe! When the call is made for Prayer on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of Allah, and leave off all business. That is best for you, if you only knew.” more
“… (He who) offers the Prayers and listens quitely when the Imam stands up for sermon, will have his sins forgiven between that Friday and the next” (Bukhari)
