(This Sermon was delivered on
the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H in the Uranah Valley
of mount Arafat )
lend me an attentive ear, for I don't know whether, after
this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore
listen to what I am saying to you carefully and TAKE THIS
WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.
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 so that no one may hurt you.
Remember 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 obligation
shall henceforth be waived...
Satan, for your safety of your religion. He has lost all
hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big
things, so beware of following him in small things.
it is true that you have certain rights with regard to
your women, but they also have right over you. 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 comitted
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 commit adultery.
listen to me in earnest, whorship ALLAH, say your five
daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadhan,
and give your wealth in Zakat. 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 OTHER EXCEPT BY PIETY AND GOOD ACTION.
one day you will appear before ALLAH and answer for your
deeds. So beware, do not astray from the path of
righteousness after I am gone.
NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND 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, the SUNNAH and
if you follow these you will never go astray.
who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and
those to others again; and may the last ones understand my
words better than those who listen to me direcly. BE MY
WITNESS O ALLAH THAT I HAVE CONVEYED YOUR MESSAGE TO YOUR
