Sheikh Speaks on Pre-Islamic Arab + Pics

The Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky spoke on the second day of Ashura mourning gathering at Husainiyyah Baqiyyatullah Zaria on Friday the 2nd of Muharram 1434.

He spoke on the pre islamic Period and uncivilised nature of the Arabian society even though Makka was  established on the basis religion. Prophet Ibraheem(AS) was shown the foundation of ka’aba by God where upon he rebuit it as narrated in the holy Qur’an which shows the origin of makka was based on religion.

He also spoke on Creation of Adam which he said man creation started with knowledge as Adam was endowed with knowledge, likewise the root is Tawheed but later the people astrayed and became ignorant to the extent that idol worshipping emerged which the Arab considered right to the extent that oneday Abu Jahl once prayed to God to furnish who went astray thinking the Prophet brought something new contrary to custom. God brought the end of Abu Jahl to show that he was the one who was not on the right path.

Meccans were already astrayed before the Prophet(AS), as they indulged in idol worshipping which was introduced to the Meccans as recorded in history. Evidently,  people adopt a Culture of rulling power as the world witness now.

He further narrated  that competitons existed among Arab tribes in terms of honour, power, bravity, etc. However, Banu Hashim have excelled in honour and other excellent qualities among the Quraish. So, emergence of the holy prophet from Banu Hashim further widen the rivalry and competition as the Prophet became the symbol of all excellent qualities. The other tribes vehemtily envied Banu Hashim with the coming of the Prophet (SAWA) from them.
