Imam Ali Abdur-Rahman al Hudhaifi
This is the khutbah given by Sheikh Ali Abdur-Rahman Al-Hudhaifi, the Imam of Masjid-e- Nabawi, at Madina Al Munawwarah, during the Jumah'ah prayers on the 15th Zul Qa'dah, 1418(13th March, 1998).This khutbah, which was also being officially recorded, was delivered while while Rafsanjani, anofficial reresentative of the Shiah government of Iran, was present in Masjid-e-Nabawi at thetime. Following the khutbah, the Saudi government immediately banne the publication of the khutbahand sale of it's audio recordings within the kingdom. The authiorities seized and confiscated all official recordings of the khutbah immediately after the jum'ah prayers.The sheikh was also immediately arrested and interrogated for delivering a speech which wasnaturally upsetting for the Saudi government and its kuffar friends; America and other ChristianWestern countries, and the Jews and the Shia's. He was, however, released due to fear of publicrevolt.
and supported by Supporters of Shariah: Where teh Imam mentions the Saudi government as a model Islamic government, if it were a model Islamic government they would not have arrested the Sheikh for speaking the truth. It is clear in many of the practices and policies of the Saudi Family leaders and their government that they are outside of the fold of Islam and no longer Muslims.
Begin The Khutbah by the sheikh.
All praise is for Allah, the Sustainer of the entire universe, Lord of all worlds. He enlightened thehearts of His Aulia with divine guidance and strength of belief, and provided strength to their perception with the luminance of Wahi. Whomsoever He desired He guided to the right path,whoever He wanted, in His wisdom, He led astray. Thus did the hearts of the Kuffar andMunafiqeen become blind to accepting the light of Truth, and Allah Ta'ala's entire argument wasestablished over all His creatures.I offer praise to my Rabb, and such gratitude which is worthy of His Being and magnificentsovereignty. I bear witness that there is no god except Allah, He is One and Only and has no partner; that He is Master of the Day of Qiyamah.And I bear witness that our Prophet and leader Hadhrat Muhammad SallalLahu `AlayhiWasallam is His bondsman and Messenger, leader of all the ancients and the moderns. He wassent forth with the Holy Qur'an as a blessing for the Muslim, a bearer of glad tidings to them.O Allah! Send Durood and Salaam, shower blessings upon your Bondsman and Messenger,Muhammad SallalLahu `Alayhi Wasallam, upon his descendants, Ashaab and Tabi`een.Amma-Ba`ad. O Muslims, fear Allah. Fear Allah as is His due. Hold fast to the strong bond of Islam.
