Worshippers will be told of the importance of praising Allah and following what He has instructed to better adhere to the way of Islam.

The imam will call upon believers to show praise in several ways, but mostly through showing gratitude for the blessings He has bestowed on people, Friday’s sermon says.

In the sermon, the imam hearkens back to the story of the Prophet Noah, where when he boarded his ark to escape danger, he was advised to praise God.

The sermon recalls the story and said only under His guidance did Noah complete his journey safely.

Allah said: “and when you have boarded the ship, you and those with you, then say, ‘praise to Allah who has saved us from the wrongdoing people’.” (Al Muminoon: 28).

The sermon also sheds light on how praising God is observed by angels, because the angels hasten to record praise in one’s good deeds register.

The Prophet Mohammed asked believers to praise Allah, and when one with him did so, the Prophet said” “I saw over 30 angels competing to write it first.”

Allah said “and to Him is [due all] praise throughout the heavens and the earth. And [exalted is He] at night and when you are at noon” (Ar-Roum: 18).

Furthermore, the sermon says that in following Allah, believers will be delivered to his embrace upon the end of days.
