ISLAMABAD (Agencies) - Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh has urged the Muslims to hold tightly the rope of Allah Almighty and practise Islam, saying the ongoing global financial crisis could be overcome by practising Islamic teachings. While delivering Haj sermon in the Nimra Mosque situated in Arafat to nearly three million of pilgrims from around the world Sunday, the Grand Mufti urged Muslims to practise teachings delivered by Allah, by his Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) terming these the only way for their success in this world and hereafter. He said the financial system given by Islam is the best and able to address all the needs of modern world, suffering from global financial crunch, as it is based on the principles of 'Adal' (justice) and interest-free. "Muslims' beliefs are based only on Quran and Sunnah and nothing other than these," he said, urging Muslims to practise the five pillars of Islam, i.e. Shahada, Namaz, Fasting, Zakat and Haj, with full spirit. He asked Muslims to adopt 'Taqwah', quoting several verses from Holy Quran and sayings of Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) over its importance and effects. "Whoever said La-Illaha ilallah' will be saved from fire of hell," Al-Sheikh said in his sermon. "Some forces were trying to change the thoughts of Muslim youths," Grand Mufti warned, urging youth to strengthen their relationship with Islam. "These forces are trying their best to unveil Muslim women; they have flourished the drugs in Muslim societies; they are misinterpreting Islam's teachings to distance Muslims from their religion," Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti warned millions of pilgrims present in Arafat for Haj and to billions of others watching and hearing his 'Khutba' (address) alive on televisions and radios as it was telecasted in all around the Muslim world. "Islam does not support terrorism in any form and strictly prohibits shedding blood of innocents," he added. About three million Muslims from across the world on Sunday performed the most important ritual of Haj, Waqoof-e -Arafat. Of these 165,000 are Pakistanis. Starting just after dawn on Sunday, in mild weather, the faithful made their way slowly on foot or by bus onto Jabl-e-Arafat, where Prophet Mohammed Sallalah-o-Alaihe -Wa Alaihe Wasallam delivered his last Khutba more than 14 centuries ago. For the second day of the Haj, the male pilgrims wore two pieces of unstitched cloth, serving as a shroud, while the women were entirely covered apart from face and hands. The crowd continued to recite 'Labaik Allahhuma Labaik' as they converged on Jabl-e-Arafat to seek Allah Almighty's blessings and forgiveness for their sins. They spent the rest of their time on mount Arafat praying and beseeching God for his forgiveness, as a symbol of the wait for Judgement Day. After Waqoof-e Arafat, at sunset the faithful moved towards the Valley of Muzdalifah where they spent the whole night in the open sky and sought forgiveness and blessings of Allah Almighty. On Monday (today) the Hujaj will return to Mina, perform Rammi or stoning of the big 'Satan', sacrifice animal, usually a sheep, in pursuit of the Sunnah of Hazrat Ibrahim Alaihissalam and perform other rituals. The next day, the Hujaj will again perform Rammi at Jamrat, stoning of the smaller Satan. Later, they will return to Makkah to perform Tawaf-e-Ziarat. The Saudi authorities have made elaborate arrangements to facilitate the pilgrims. The Saudi Interior Ministry has assembled 100,000 stewards to ensure safety during the Hajj and the health ministry has supplied 11,000 of its medical and paramedical staff along with 140 first aid points and 24 field hospitals containing a total of 4,000 beds.
