“O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you fed Me not. He will say: O Lord, and how should I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: Did you not know that My servant So-and-so asked you for food and you fed him not? Did you not know that had you fed him you would surely have found that (the reward for doing so) with Me?” (Muslim) – Visiting the sick – Attending to the needs of needy – Helping the Helpless – Social service & feeding parallels
We are taught to love all of the messengers of God and to study the seerah [prophetic biography] of the Prophet Mohammed[pbuh]. Knowledge of the seerah can help people to better understand how the Prophet[pbuh] dealt with relationships, challenges, and many other facets of life. Further, in this khutbah [Friday sermon] we are reminded of the countless benefits once can receive by reading and implementing this profound biography. On a spiritual level, reading the seerah can also lead to a better understanding of the Quran and how to get closer to our Lord.
