Verses Cited in this Friday Sermon:
  • Recitation of verses 31 and 32 of Surah Al-Nur, instructions regarding the Islamic Purdah, Thought that purdah is an antiquated restriction that should be removed in this day, the progress of Islam and Ahmadiyyat is not dependant on strict observance of Purdah, Allah has given clear instructions in the Holy Quran regarding purdah, it is evident from the practice of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) that purdah was strictly observed at that time, The teachings of the Holy Quran will never be outdated, They should beg Allah’s forgiveness, Men are instructed in the first instance to restrain their looks, while in public places we should walk with our eyes partially closed, Allama Tibri, prevent yourself from looking at every such thing that has been forbidden by Allah, if acted upon a lot of the evils will vanish automatically.
  • سورۃ النور آیت ۳۱،۳۲ کی تلاوت، اسلامی پردہ سے متعلق ہدایات، یہ سوچ کہ پردہ ایک متروک ہدایت ہے جو اس زمانہ میں ختم ہو جانا چاہئے، اسلام اور احمدیت کی ترقی پردہ پہ منحصر ہے، اﷲتعالیٰ نے قرآن مجید میں پردہ کی واضح ہدایت کی ہے، آنحضور ﷺ کے طریق سے یہ بات ثابت ہے کہ اس زمانہ میں پردہ کی سختی سے پابندی کی جاتی تھی،قرآنی تعلیمات کبھی پرانی نہیں ہونگی، انہیں اﷲ سے معافی مانگنی چاہئے ، مردوں کو اول تو اپنی نظریں نیچے رکھنے کی تلقین کی گئی ہے، پبلک مقامات پہ اپنی آنکھیں آدھی بند کر کے چلیں،بہت سی برائیاں خود بخود دور ہو جائینگی، علامہ طبری، اپنے آپ کو ہر اس چیز سے دور رکھیں جس سے اﷲ تعالیٰ نے منع فرمایا ہے۔
