Haj sermon 2019: Muslims must rid hearts of hatred, show kindness to all
[DAWN] Imam Sheikh Mohammad bin Hassan Al Sheikh has urged all Moslems to rid their hearts of hatred and be more kind in their treatment of others, Radio Pakistain reported.

While delivering the Haj sermon on Saturday at Masjid-e-Nimra on the plain of Arafat, he impressed upon the need for showing campassion towards parents, children, relatives and all living beings.

He called upon Moslems to remain united in the bonds of brotherhood.

He reminded them that God's blessings are infinite and one must find solace in this fact and continue to seek them.

More than two million Moslems were gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the annual Haj pilgrimage.

Pilgrims clad in white robes signifying a state of purity spent the night in a sprawling encampment around the hill where God tested Hazrat Ibrahim's (AS) faith by commanding him to sacrifice his son Hazrat Ismail. It is also where Prophet Muhammad (PTUI!) gave his last sermon.

Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill.
