Muslims must be connected to the Quran

A true believer never lies; he could be a coward or cheap but never a liar, this week's Friday sermon will tell worshippers.

A true believer never lies; he could be a coward or cheap but never a liar, today's sermon reminds worshippers.

"Muslims are characterised by unique qualities and morals, distinguishing them from others whether in terms of belief, worship or behaviour," says the sermon.

It reminds worshippers that Muslims believe in Allah alone as their creator and that they also believe in His angels, books, prophets and fate - whether good or bad.

"They always seek His Glorious assistance by supplicating to Him, and follow the example of the Prophet Mohammed in all that he used to do or avoid."

A verse from the Quran says: "There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and who remembers Allah often."

Muslims must always be connected to Allah's words, the Quran, and must ponder its meaning.

Prophet Mohammed said in a hadith: "Wondrous is the affair of the believer for there is good in every matter of his and this is not the case with anyone except the believer; for if he is happy, he thanks Allah, thus there is good for him, and if he is harmed, he shows patience, thus there is good for him."
