Farewell sermon of the Prophet of Islam Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him
O People, 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 THES WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.
“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 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…
Beware of 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.
“O People, 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 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 commit adultery.
“O People, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH,
Perform 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.
Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and
