His Eminence, Sayyed Ali Fadlullah, delivered the two Friday prayer sermons at the Imamain Al-Hassanain Mosque, Shaaban, 29th 1437 H. – June, 3rd 2016. Several prominent religious scholars, dignitaries and thousands of believers attended the Jumu’a prayer.
In the first sermon, His Eminence, Sayyed Ali Fadlullah, talked about certain days that Allah has described as His days. He elaborated on the month of Ramadan, being among these days, and explained why it is so special and what the true meaning of fasting is. He maintained that fasting is but one of the responsibilities of this month. The others include charity, good morals and the means of practically expressing love to Allah, His Messenger and Ahl El-Beit (a.s.).
This is why – the Sayyed continued – we ought to program our deeds in this month being a chance for correction, change and self-construction. This program will include, in addition to worshipping, restoring and reinforcing our relations with our relatives, giving out charity to the poor and calling for Allah…
The Sayyed concluded that this month is a great opportunity to reformulate our personality on the basis of belief and purity so as to ensure success in both lives.
In the second sermon, the Sayyed began with Lebanon and commented on the municipal elections. He maintained that the fact that these elections were held peacefully has proven that the Lebanese are able to hold any elections, so there is no longer any excuse for any extension which is resorted to every time the interests of the Lebanese political class are at stake. The Sayyed also called for solidifying internal unity, especially in the presence of huge security threats, whether by Israel or the Takfiri networks.
The Sayyed also commemorated the death anniversary of the late Imam Khomeini. He also declared that, according to the juristic opinion of the late Sayyed Fadlullah (ra), next Monday, June 06, 2016 is the first day of the month of Ramadan.
