His Eminence, Shiekh Muhsin Atwi, delivered the two Friday prayer sermons at the Imamain Al-Hassanain Mosque, Rabi II 28th 1435 H. – February, 28th 2014. Several prominent religious scholars, dignitaries and thousands of believers attended the Jumu’a prayer.
Following is a summary:
The First Sermon
In the first sermon, His Eminence, Shiekh Muhsin Atwi , said that we should be the nation of content and acceptance; the nation that trusts its Lord in what He ordains, despite all the sufferings, difficulties and challenges.
The second sermon
In the second sermon, His Eminence, Shiekh Muhsin Atwi, began with Lebanon. He praised the wisdom of the Resistance that prevented the enemy from achieving the goals of its last aggression, as well as establishing a new equation. He called on all parties in the Lebanese government to be aware of the dangers of this stage, asking them to go on with the policy of concessions they showed when the government was formed and to unite over the government communiqué that paves the way to drawing a plan that protects the country from the economic and social collapse and the terrorist explosions.
He also called on the politicians to provide a political cover for the Army and the Lebanese to support it. He also considered that we ought to support the Resistance and not turn it into an issue in the political debate or internal struggles, for such issues should be discussed within the framework of national dialogue.
Sheikh Atwi emphasized the importance of strengthening the Muslim – Christian relations, not only in Lebanon, but in the entire East as well.
In Palestine, he drew the attention to the Israeli attempts to gain control over Al-Aqsa Mosque, and called on all Muslims and Arabs to confront these attempts.
On the same level, he praised the decision of the Jordanian Parliament to expel the Israeli ambassador, and called on the Arabs and Muslims to take stands that face the enemy’s threats.
