The lecture began with an exchange of greetings and gratitude. Sheikh Al-Khanin continued by praising Allah and advising the audience on the true path of Islam through the Holy Quran and Sunnah. Islam is the religion of peace and moderation, and we are elevated to a high status for that reason, he explained. Among the many verses discussed, Sheikh Al-Khanin highlighted Al-Baqarah 2:143. In this verse, Allah instructs us to follow the middle path in practicing our faith, "And thus we have made you a just community that you will be witnesses over the people and the Messenger will be a witness over you...Merciful".
