Friday Sermon of 25 October 2013 ~ (19 Dhul-Hijjah 1434 Hijri delivered by the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Mun ir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius:
This Book, there is no doubt in it, is a guidance to the pious. (2: 3)
The Holy Quran affirms that it is a ‘Guide’, a ‘Direction’, only for the pious, the beneficent, the righteous. Not for others who are not pious or righteous, who do not put into practice what Allah says in the Holy Quran, (those) who read the Quran just like parrots, only on the lips and do not understand anything (of the Quran). For those people who are Muslims only in names, then the Holy Quran does not apply to these kinds of people. The righteous are those who already believe in the existence of God, although they cannot see Him, who already ‘raise and straighten’ the Salat, those who already observe fasting, already spend in the cause of God from among the goods granted to them, and they already believe in the truthfulness of the Quran and other scriptures revealed before the Quran (2: 3-5).
