I hope that individuals who are not of the Islamic faith would be interested in what happens during Friday Prayer. Yes, we do pray, in Arabic and English for those of us who have yet to learn Arabic (ongoing aspect for my learning the Qur'an. We also listen to what is known as a 'sermon' by our Catholic and Christan brothers. The sermon is also delivered in both languages so all of the Brothers and Sisters may benefit from the wisdom imparted that day. While this was one of the first, for me, it seemed to say a great deal to me. Things are said here that I had been wondering about for a very long time. I hope that you find it as inspiring as I did. I will be reading it many more times.

Hadith
Islamic Hadith (Sermon) presented by Furqan Mehmood to the assembledBrotherhood during Friday Prayer at the Islamic Center of Boise, Idaho on 02-13-09 and preserved and presented by Patrick McShane, convert. Shalam Alykum.Hazrat ibn Malik (ra). Hadith related by Mu’adh ibn from Hazrat Anas (ra). It isgiven below, supplemented by additional information from Hazrat Anas’ report.One day a congregation was gathered at the home of one of the Ansar aroundthe Prophet (saw). [According to Hazrat Anas it was Abu Ayyub] In the middle of a wonderful discourse an angry voice from the outside was heard saying, “O theones inside, (or, “O Messenger of Allah!”) would you permit me to enter? I havebusiness with you!”  All looked at the Prophet (saw), who said to the ones present, “Do you recognizethe owner of this voice?” The Companions answered, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” The Prophet (saw) said, “It is Satan the Accursed.” On hearing that, Hazrat Umar (ra(, who was present, pulling his sword, asked, “O Messenger of Allah, permit me to go cut off his head!” [“Let me slash his skulland free the people from his trouble!”]The Prophet (saw) replied, “No Umar, don’t you know that you cannot kill him?He has permission to exist until Qiyaamah.” Then he added, “Open the door andadmit him, as he did not come on his own but on Allah’s orders. [Or, “There isalways an underlying reason for things.] Otherwise, he would not have comehere. Listen to what he says, and try to understand.” 
Then Rawi (ra), one of the Companions, relates the tale
:They opened the door and he appeared in front of us as an old man, cross eyed[or blind in one eye] and scant of beard, with only six or seven long hairshanging from his chin. He had a very big head, his crossed eyes close to the topof his head, high on his forehead, with big thick hanging lips like those of awater buffalo.He saluted the Prophet and the Companions, to which the Prophet (saw)responded, ‘O Accursed, the salaam and salutations belong to Allah Most high.’ 
 
 
Then he said, ‘I heard you are here on business. What is it?’ Satan said, ‘I didnot wish to come here, I was forced to - an angel came to me from your Lord,Who honors whom He wishes, and said, “Allah Most High orders you toMuhammad, but you will go to him in humility and abasement, and besubmissive and tractable. You will tell him how you seduce and misleadhumankind. You are going to answer all of his questions truthfully, without asingle lie. And Allah said that my enemies would laugh at me. I come with suchorders, O Muhammad.” Then the Prophet asked the Devil, “Tell me, who in the creation do you hatemost?” The Devil answered, “You O Muhammad! [‘And all the Prophets’]. There is noone in the whole creation that I hate more. There is none other like you.” The Messenger of Allah (saw) [confirmed that the Devil] was his own, and all theProphets’ (as) greatest foe]. He asked, ‘Whom else do you detest besides me?’ Satan said, “The young ones who have given up their pleasures and themselvesfor Allah’s sake; the men of knowledge who act upon their knowledge and whodecline all that is doubtful; the ones who are clean. So clean that they washthrice that which they wish to cleanse. Then the patient poor, who neither ask from others the things they need, nor complain. Then the thankful rich, who givelawfully and spend lawfully.” Then the Prophet (saw) asked, ‘What happens to you, O Accursed One, whenmy people do their prayers?’  “I shake and tremble as if stricken with malaria because I see your people raisedin blessing and power each time they prostrate.”  ‘What happens to you, O Accursed, when my people fast?’  “I have my hands and feet tied until they break their fast.”  ‘What happens when they all meet on the Hajj at the house of their Lord?’  “I loose my wits, I go mad.”  ‘What happens to you when they recite the Holy Qur’an?’  “I melt, like lead turning to hot liquid in the fire.”  ‘And when they pay alms?’ 
 
 
 “I am torn to pieces, as if the generous donor look a saw and sawed me intofour pieces. Because there are four benefits which the donor receives - theblessing of abundance, love and respect from Allah’s creatures, a shield fromhellfire and relief from distress and troubles.” Then the Messenger of Allah (saw) asked the Devil what he thought of hisbeloved Companions. About Hazrat Abu Baakr (ra) he said, “I hate him. Evenbefore Islam he refused to obey, nay! Even to hear me. How can he now listento me?” About Hazrat Uthman Affan (ra) he said, “I am ashamed in front of him.Even the angles of mercy are ashamed in front of him.” And about Hazrat Ali ibn Abu Talib (ra) he said, “O if I could just be safe from him, if he would just let mebe, I would let him be. But he will not leave me alone!” Having heard the answers of the accursed Satan, the Prophet (saw) thanked Allah and said, ‘Praise be to Allah who has blessed my people with such felicityand cursed you with such negativity until that appointed time.’ When the Devil heard that, he said, “Alas, alas for you, what felicity for yourpeople? How can you feel there is safety for them as long as I exist? I enter theirvery veins, their very flesh, and they cannot even suspect, let alone see or feelme. I swear by Allah who has given me time until Qiyaamah that I will seducethem all, the intelligent and simple-minded, the learned as well as the ignorant,the devout as well as the sinner. None will be safe from me except the trueservants of Allah.” The Prophet (saw) asked, ‘Who are the true servants of Allah, according to you?’ The Devil said, “You know well, O Muhammad, that whomsoever loves hismoney and his property Allah does not count among his servants. Whenever Isee someone who does not say, “mine” and “me”, who does not love eithermoney or flattery, I know he is truly a servant of Allah and I run away fromhim.”  “As long as one loves money, property, flattery, he obeys me, he is my servant.I need many servants and I have many servants. I am not alone. I have 70,000children, each of them with his assigned duties. Each of my 70,000 children has70,000 satans serving him, all assigned to different posts. Many are with theyoung people and older women, and with the theologians and preachers andsheikhs.”  “There are almost no differences of opinion between your young people and mydevils, and your children play happily with my children. And some of the devoutand some of the pious get along very well with my people! My devils lead the
