Excerpts from the Friday Sermon on 17 Jumada al-Awwal 1445 H in the Haram Mosque by Sheikh Faysal Ghazzawi

1. One of the tremendous matters on Judgment Day is that secrets will be revealed, and what was concealed will become known.

2. On Judgment Day, what was in hearts, whether good or evil, will be displayed on people's faces. It is our duty to sense the greatness of that significant moment, where we are held accountable, and the hidden aspects are revealed.

3. Those who believe that Allah sees them wherever they are, and that He is aware of their inner and outer selves, should act wisely now. Beware of neglect and disobedience, embrace guidance and advice, and strive to avoid actions that bring shame and disgrace.

4. For those whom Allah has concealed in moments of solitude without exposing them, be vigilant. Beware of persisting in sins by gazing at obscenities, indulging in falsehood by listening to prohibited things. Remember, your secrets, known only to Allah now, will be unveiled someday.

5. Allah says: "They conceal [their evil intentions and deeds] from the people, but they cannot conceal [them] from Allah, and He is with them [in His knowledge] when they spend the night in such as He does not accept of speech.

6. Allah commands His servants to abandon both apparent and hidden sins. As He says: "And leave what is apparent of sin and what is concealed. Indeed, those who earn [blame for] sin will be recompensed for that which they used to commit."

7. Many people are unaware of numerous sins, especially sins of the heart, such as arrogance, vanity, showing off, envy, malice, and the desire for fame and appearance. They accumulate many of these sins without realizing it, which reflects a turning away from knowledge and a lack of insight into religion.

8. Some fear people seeing them in sinful situations more than they fear Allah, even though they will be held accountable for everything concealed or revealed. Allah is more deserving of fear and awe.

9. A believer strives for sincerity in actions for Allah, monitors his relationship with his Lord, and fears the consequences of disobedience.

10. O Allah, aid the oppressed, the fighters in Your path, and those stationed at the frontiers. Make our country safe, secure, prosperous, and spacious, along with all Muslim lands.

11. O Allah, protect the oppressed in Palestine. Grant them victory, honor, triumph, and empowerment. Take charge of their affairs, alleviate their hardships, reveal their distress, have mercy on their weakness, mend their brokenness, heal their illnesses, grant well-being to those tested, and accept the martyrs among them. Bring adversity upon those who oppose them.
