Last sermon by our beloved nabi (saw)

O people, lend me an attentive ear, i know not whether after this year, i shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen towhat i am saying to you carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here.

O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners, hurt no one and no one may hurt you. Remeber that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligations shall henceforth be waived. Beware of satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in the small things.

O people, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women but they also have rights over you. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed & clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and commited helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with anyone of whom you do not approve of, as well as never commit adultery.

O people, listen to me in earnest. Worship Allah, say your five daily prayers, fast during the month of ramadan, and give your wealth in zakah, perform hajj if you can afford to. You know that every muslim is the brother of another muslim. You are all equal. Nobody has superiority over the other except by piety and goodness. Remember one day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after i am gone.

O people, no prophet or apostle will come after me, no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O people, and understand my words, which i convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Qur’an and my example (Sunnah) and if you follow this you would never go astray.

All those who listened to me shall pass on my words to other and those to other again, and may the last ones understand my words better than people those who listen to me directly. Be my witness O Allah that i have conveyed your message to the people.

9th Dhul hijjah 10AH Uranah valley of mount Arafah.
