The First Sermon

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Allah has warned us in the Holy Quran not to believe the news the evil might tell us, since we could harm others and feel very remorseful when we discover the truth . This is a very important issue that has to do with the field of the media and information in general. People are attended by the way the media portrays the news. Intelligence agencies in the world plan the news and fabricate them to ensure that our nation will divide in their conceptions and beliefs, leading to the fall of the entire nation as a result of believing in certain lies that are presented to us as facts. That is why Allah has told the believers to study the personality of those who narrate any news in any field. If the person is pious and holds the responsibility of what he says, then you can believe what he says. But if he does not fear Allah and does not mind lying, you have to verify ,with your own means, whether what he is saying is true or not. If you do not and take what he says at face value, you might act irresponsibly, and harm others. Then, although you will feel remorse, it will be too late. Allah, the most Exalted, will hold each and every one of us accountable, on what we have heard and how we heard it, and on what we saw and how we saw it. He wants us to base all our actions on a firm foundation of awareness and rationalism. We should not hurry to believe anything, but rather seek to verify it with whatever means we have, especially that in this stage the liar could be a person, a newspaper, a network or a political party and the like. It is one of the toughest stages in the history of Islam, since the arrogant and the unbelief forces have all joined hands and waged a war against Islam and Muslims in all their countries and positions. They do not want Islam to become a force to be reckoned with; they want Muslims to be scattered and fragmented .That is why we have to adopt the manners of Islam, and act on the basis of awareness and rationalism to be able to stand before God and be sure that we can be held accountable on everything we heard, said or did.

In the Name of Allah, The Compassionate, The Merciful

The Second Sermon

The American War

It is the American war that the American President and his administration still insist on, as if he did not quench his thirst to the blood of Lebanese children, women, and the elderly, as if these Lebanese are native American Indians whom the Americans used to hunt like rabbits.

It is America’s war on Lebanon as a part of a bigger war, or at least an important step towards reviving the project of the broad Middle East that stumbled in Iraq . It might be even looking to compensate for its loss in that country in other countries in the Middle East, starting by Lebanon, thus restoring some of its supposed mighty image and stopping the deterioration of the American Middle East project that was formulated by the Neocons as a fundamental part of the American strategy to dominate the world. Thus the American Israeli war on Lebanon sought to destroy the entire Lebanese infrastructure and to displace its people. They also haunted the civilians in a barbaric way even destroying the buildings on the heads of its occupants, with the American most sophisticated weapons the US continues to provide the enemy with to kill as many Lebanese civilians as possible. This demonstrates to the world the fakeness of all the slogans Bush raised concerning freedom, human rights and democracy This also made the downtrodden in the entire world, especially the Arabs and Muslims, understand that the incumbent administration represents a cancerous threat on all men and at every level.

America wanted Israel to be the strongest force in the region and act as its hammer that strikes all Arab regimes including those that cooperate with it . It forced the latter to sign peace treaties, which represented a political military and psychological defeat. It also imposed on some of these regimes economic normalization that opens to Israel a big window of opportunity for exporting its products. Thus, the fear from the enemy began to fill the heart of Arab and non Arab rulers. And made it clear to them that the road to establish relations with the US passes through the relations with Israel. The American Administration then moved to confront all liberation and rejection movements that oppose occupation, besiege them and use political and military violence against them, whether in Lebanon or in Palestine. Any party who wants freedom for his people and lands, and refuses American hegemony was accused of terrorism , and was confronted with the help of the regimes that the CIA deployed to serve the American plans .

The war on Palestine

Palestine is still suffering from destroying its infrastructure, as well as Arab and Jewish besiege and the prevention of any progress in the peace process despite all the talk about a viable Palestinian state that the Quartet Committee claims. In Lebanon too, we saw how the American plan to protect and strengthen Lebanon was transformed to a plan to destroy it. It is ironic, in this respect, that the US talks about the Lebanese army as the force the Lebanese state will utilize to spread its authority over all Lebanon, at a time Israel is pounding its barracks and killing its soldiers, without any American European or Arab protest. This suggests that what they want is to weaken Lebanon and even destroy it, under the pretense of reaching a comprehensive solution that ensures stability to Lebanon. All what America and its allies want is to protect the Israeli security. But things did not go as planned. The Resistance faced the Zionist enemy whose army is supposed to fear others but never fears ,with a wise and courageous plan that fought back and bombed to retaliate for every shelling, thus preventing the enemy from achieving any victory and resorted to pounding civilians. This made the American allies and some Arab regimes who are friends of Israel feel afraid of this powerful force of resistance, and began despite their denial to encourage the enemy to continue its war to defeat the resistance, but the Arab and Muslim peoples fully supported the Resistance for it restored the Arab and Muslim dignity, in a way that many regimes began to tumble. There is a new era of victory for the nation which will be continued from one generation to the other. The Arabs and Muslims should study this pioneer experiment to know that it is not the quality of the weapon but that of the fighter who believes in God and has trust in Him that counts. They gain their power from this belief and have accumulated a profound experience in fighting the enemy
It is the war of the Resistance against the war of America and Israel, and it will spread to the entire Arab and Muslim world. The Mujahdeen will be victorious in the end no matter how long it will take and how things get more complicated. May Allah support whom He wills. He is strong and omnipotent.
