I’ll not give up preaching as long as I live, says Sheikh Fareed in ‘Farewell’ sermon

“I’ll not give up preaching as long as I live, even if I was faced with torture or death, because I fear Allah,” Sheikh Ibrahim Fareed has said in his “Farewell” sermon, according to the Islamic Foundation of the Maldives’ (IFM).

Sheikh Fareed is himself a member of the Islamic Foundation (IFM).

The IFM said that Sheikh Fareed used the speech to look at the Farewell Sermon (Khutbatul Wada) given by the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), where Muslims were told that he may not ever again meet or address them.

The foundation said that the sermon being addressed by Sheik Fareed was originally believed to have been delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H. in the Uranah valley of Mount Arafat in Mecca.

“After praises and thanks to Allah, the Prophet (PBUH) said, ‘People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today,’” Sheikh Fareed said during his own sermon.

Sheikh Fareed said Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) declared that it was forbidden for Muslims to violate the honour and property of his fellow Muslims.

‘’The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) also invalidated all the transactions of the days of ignorance involving usury, including those of his uncle Abbas ibn Abdul Muttalib,’’ the IFM quoted Sheikh Fareed saying. ‘’Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligations shall henceforth be waived. Your capital is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn ‘Abdul-Muttalib (the Prophet’s uncle) be waived,’ declared the Messenger of Allah in his farewell sermon.’’

Sheikh Fareed further referenced the farewell sermon of Prophet Mohamed [PBUH] and said that Muslim woman were not allowed to let strangers in to their houses without the permission of their husband, according to the IFM website.

‘‘O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under God’s trust and with His permission,” said Sheikh Fareed, quoting the prophet. “If they abide by your right, then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste,’’

The IFM added that Sheikh Fareed discussed the “wicked sins in Islam” such as bloodshed (murder), assault, robbery and child molestation, which he claimed were common in Maldivian society today.

“This is because we have ignored the words of the Prophet in his last sermon,” he added.

“There is discord and feud prevalent in every corner of the Maldivian society. No place is free from long-running feuds, quarrels or bitter arguments, including the People’s Majlis (Maldives parliament) or least to say a fishing vessel.”

Sheikh Fareed was also said to note that when comparing hypocrites (munaafiqun) who lived during the Prophet’s time, the hypocrites living today were more evil as they openly attack Islam and those who adhere to its principles, according to the IFM.

The IFM said the Sheikh emphasized that apart from burglary and theft, robbery has become very common in our society and that Islam has prescribed severe punishment for robbers.

The foundation said that Islam gave permission to cut off a robber’s hands and feet alternately as a deterrent for people bent on committing such crimes, as cited in Quran 5:33.

“The recompense of those who fight Allah and His messenger, and seek to make corruption in the land, is that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from alternate sides or that they be banished from the land; that is their disgrace in this world and in the Hereafter they will have a great torment,” the IFM said quoting the verse.

  1. If "Cucumber Fareed" had his way there would be lots of people hopping around Maldives with one hand. keke

  2. It's ok Fareed, we didn't think you were leaving either.

    It would have taken principles to make such a decision.

    Keep threatening our women with hellfire and regaling us with interesting anecdotes involving cucumbers.

  3. I knew it. Anything that sounds too good is probably too good to be true. Whew. Back to square one.

    Ladies, and vulnerable men, you are faced with the most treacherous within our society. Mr Cucumber himself. Hellbent on intimidating the society.

  4. fareed stopping what he calls preaching will be like fareed not going to the toilet for crapping.

  5. To: NeedCucumberNow
    Allah has ordered to cut the hands of robbers it is not Fareed, today you caould laugh for such things but what is sure is you are going to die sooner or later and either you will go to hellfire or to heaven, so do not laugh for such things

    It is not only women who goes to hellfire even men will go there if you do not obey to allah n his messenger, remeber you are going to die for sure

  6. you know saying he will never stop preaching on his 'apparently' farewell sermon is the greatest eg of an oxymoron so far.

    does fareed know how the world economy runs when he talk abt robbery? its a built in process. define robbery. is it taking something that belongs to another person or is it being caught while taking. who can define this. there are all sorts of robbery going on in all walks of life. business men, bankers, politicians are some of the biggest robbers, but you probably would not know....

  7. Sheikh Fareed's surmon was good to be honest. All he has said were mere truth. Our society is in a deep state of misery today because we have moved away from the right path mentioned in Quran and that taught by the prophet pbuh.

  8. think u guys made a mistake in translation
    im sure what he meant was "premarital sex with a child" not "child molestation"

  9. Mohamed and Yasir,

    Some day in the next few decades, I hope the law of probability will result in one of you hearing about more 'scholars' than Fareed, and listen to what they have to say.

    Having lived in another country before, I've heard plenty of diverse scholarly opinion from highly qualified Islamic scholars, the overwhelming majority of whom have nothing to say that is even remotely comparable to Fareed's misogynist idiotic rants.

    Listening to people like you just convince me that you have abandoned all thinking and surrendered all judgment to your chosen Mullah.

    Someday I will die, as will everyone else. That's hardly an argument to swallow the hateful ignorant rants of a narrow minded, joyless mullah who thinks he represents God.

  10. mode: I think it is "child molestation" that this Fareed guy meant. Not premarital sex with a child! You are sick, arnt you?

  11. @eynameena -
    its not my opinion!!
    they made it quite clear sex with a child is not wrong its premarital sex they got a problem with
    just ask one of them

  12. @eynameena
    ok i regret saying that i really dont want to go into that argument

    u r right they wouldn't condone the marriage of someone below the age of 9

  13. Its strange and sickening that even today some people feel OK and talk about sex with young girl as young as 9-10 years old. Pl give a thought and think from THAT girl's point of view. This is sickening.

  14. Yameen, you might think you are smart. Its not only you who have heard or lived in another country. You may think all innocent god loving people in Maldives are just frogs in the well. Well to be frank the most intelligent creatures in the world today are athiest or who do not follow any religion or some ppl claiming to divinity. its not about one's social intelligence or scientific intelligence which decide the moral or existence of god. Its only if you seek the truth you get to know god, buy only applying your limited logic behind complex issues as meta physics will remain you more ignorant. The world is not like you know it is brother, the so called western civilisation is not something you should be proud of, its only meterialism which you urge, and you think only they are right, because unfortunately you are been brought up in a time when western machinery is on well played against so called Mullahs, or who ever who is fundamental muslim. you tell me, is there a way to follow anything without practicing fundamentals of it, you cannot be chemist without been fundamental chemist or without knowing it. You laugh, but Christians are too ignorant to realize a human is called god, and their vetican church is been hijacked by some guy called rothschild for manipulating what their belief. when all religion is been washed, its time about Islam. brother read about albert pike whose letter got leaked before 1st world war. and its muslim turn, we will be prosecuted until and third world war will be waged until we all will vanish for Satan to take over the world. if you happen to be inteligent, read Protocols of Elders of zion. just do not become an enemy of yourself. you are just brain washed like all of us, but yet you think all other who do not wear a tie and a boot and who do not go coffee with girls are some crazy idiots.

  15. yameen bro..do you hav to write a big whole statement on tht!..this is ridiculous!

  16. How nice of Fareed to compare himself to the prophet Muhammed (pbuh) by giving farewell speeches. Fareed just like every wahabee are only men who wants more power/wealth/followers/women and underage children to fulfill their desire and needs, people just need to stop kidding themselves thinking they are so holy and divine. If you want yo learn about religion there are tons of copies of Quran for "Free" in any language you want, why don't people just pick up a copy, read it, understand it before actually following twisted versions of the faith the clowns like this preach.

  17. "You laugh, but Christians are too ignorant to realize a human is called god, and their vetican church is been hijacked by some guy called rothschild for manipulating what their belief. when all religion is been washed, its time about Islam. brother read about albert pike whose letter got leaked before 1st world war. and its muslim turn, we will be prosecuted until and third world war will be waged until we all will vanish for Satan to take over the world. if you happen to be inteligent, read Protocols of Elders of zion."

    Holy Jeebus! I didn't know all this.

    Could you email me more details of this elaborate scheme? How did you come across this - maybe you have incriminating evidence as well? Looking forward to hearing from you.

    It's uglyy2 (at) gmail (dot) com, by the way.

  18. anyone who have written all these comments are just one person, or someone sitting at back of his chair hating islam, or someone who is so ignorant to think that ppl like fareed is last problem in the world. as of like world is of very good ppl. but the same ppl who have written these comments might have many girl friend, or boy friends, or extra merital afairs, or even had cyber sex, or might had some sex chit chats, or have seen internet porn sites specially searched for minors, barely 18, or mother daughter, or these ppl might had one night stand. but yet they find it hard to digest someone like fareed, have a beard, same like jew rabbi, same like buddist monk, same like christian holymen, or if you see picture of abraham, jesus, moses all had same beards and long hair. only thin is fareed is too dark or not white, or too ugly infront of today's shaved world where everything is shaved and cleaned. but yet nothing is clean inside, everage ppl had more extra merital sex than ever in the world history, sex has become so normal issue. but yet they find it hard that fareed had maried someone. communism was created phylosphy to defeat fascim, and democracy is created phylosophy to defeat communism, and liberalism is created phylosophy to defeat religion, and athiesm is part of it. Satanist will only know the truth when the soil escape within their feet. there are more information available which is written by non muslim acadamics, intelectuals to have an idea about the world where you are part of it. just do not try to fool youself from the way you are taught or fed by media or ppl who have power.

  19. Thank god Fareed is not retiring.
    Though i do admire how well they publicized this.
    Fareed should be around to lecture us about cucumbers, or else life would be very boring indeed

  20. @yameen bro
    LOL - u r so brilliant
    "just do not try to fool youself from the way you are taught or fed by media or ppl who have power." the only people u can trust is who fareed approves right

    ps ive never seen a monk with a beard r u talking about sikhs?

  21. 'yameen bro',

    Seriously. Where can I subscribe to your newsletter?

    I'm a fan just reading your comments here. Please do email me more!

  22. Religious or anti-religious.

    All of you are intelligent. Be logical.What are you trying to achieve?

    For the religious, i am sure your objective would be to be in heaven asap. Individually. Can you please stick to this. Do not try to haul the rest of the Maldivians by their ears, in your quest.

    For the non-religious. If your objective is distance your selves from religions, stick to that, dont question the IQ, of the more devout, which would make worse their already fragile self confidence.

  23. I knew it. Just another drama-generating technique from a moron who exploits the gullible.

    I must go and collect my winnings now - I knew he couldn't stay away from doing what he does best.

  24. Oh, and if seyku fareed is TRULY the face of islam, then islam is no different from the catholic church in the dark ages - and deserves only to be mocked.
