Excerpts from the Last Sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
The following quotes are excerpts from the last sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
He delivered this sermon during his last pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj), only months before he passed away
in 632 AD (10 AH).
“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.
“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 God's trust and with His permission. . .
Do treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers...
“O People: Listen to me in earnest, worship God, say your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan,
and give your wealth in regular charity (zakat). Perform Hajj if you can afford to.
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor does a non-Arab have
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...
“Remember one day you will appear before God and answer for your deeds. So beware, (and) do not stray
from the path of righteousness after I am gone...
“I leave behind me two things, the Quran and the Sunnah (traditions), 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 listened to me directly. Be my witness,
O God, that I have conveyed your message to your people."
