THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD’S LAST SERMON

                           Bismillah

       (This Sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul
        Hijjah 10 A.H in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat )

"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 THIS 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 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.

 O People, 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.

 Remember, 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.

 O People, 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.

 All those 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 PEOPLE."
