Prophet's Farewell, Islam

  1. 1. WELCOME
  2. 2. Let’s begin in the Name of Allah بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
  3. 3. Glorious Prophet’s Glorious Speech
  5. 5. INTRODUCTION This Address was delivered on the Ninth Day of the Islamic month of Dhul-Hijjah Year 632 A.D (10 A.H.) in the 'Uranah valley of Mount Arafat' in Makkah. This Address is known as Khutbatul Wada‘, the Farewell Address, as it was the last speech delivered by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It is recorded in almost all books of Hadith. Sahih Al Bukhari, Hadith No. 1623, 1626, and 6361 Sahih of Imam Muslim, Hadith No.98. Imam al-Tirmidhi has mentioned this Address in Hadith nos. 1628, 2046, 2085. Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal has given us the longest and perhaps the most complete version of this Address in his Masnud, Hadith no. 19774.
  6. 6. INTRODUCTION This Khutbah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was long and it contained much guidance and instructions on many issues. The Prophet (peace be upon him) gave this Khutbah in front of a large gathering of people during Hajj. Whosoever heard whatever part of the sermon reported it and later some scholars put it together. It is a great khutbah and we should all pay attention to its message and guidance.
  7. 7. <ul><li>After praising and thanking Allah, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم </li></ul><ul><li>said: </li></ul><ul><li>“ O People! Lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today. </li></ul>The Khutbah
  8. 8. “ 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. The Khutbah
  9. 9. <ul><li>“ Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest); therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived/cancelled. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. “ Allah has Judged that there shall be no interest and that all interest due to Abbas Ibn ‘Abd al Muttalib (the Prophet's uncle) shall henceforth be waived. </li></ul>The Khutbah
  10. 10. Beware of Satan for the 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. The Khutbah
  11. 11. <ul><li>“ O People! It is true that you have certain rights in regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives, only under Allah's trust and with His permission. 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 anyone of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste. </li></ul>The Khutbah
  12. 12. <ul><li>“ O People! Listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, offer your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakah. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. </li></ul>The Khutbah
  13. 13. <ul><li>All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over a white- except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim, which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not therefore, do injustice to yourselves. </li></ul>The Khutbah
  14. 14. <ul><li>“ 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. </li></ul><ul><li>“ O People! No prophet will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you. </li></ul><ul><li>“ I leave behind me two things, the Quran and the Sunnah (Hadith), and if you follow these you will never go astray. </li></ul>The Khutbah
  15. 15. <ul><li>“ 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 listened to me directly. Be my witness, O Allah, that I have conveyed your message to your people.&quot; </li></ul>The Khutbah
  16. 16. <ul><li>As part of this sermon, the Prophet recited to them a revelation from Allah, which he had just received, and which completed the Quran, for it was the last passage to be revealed: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Today I have perfected for you, your religion and fulfilled My favour unto you, and it hath been My good pleasure to choose Islam for you as your religion.” </li></ul><ul><li>(Al Qur’an, Chapter 5, Verse 3) </li></ul>
