Beloved prophet Mohammed's (SAW) last sermon

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.

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. Allahhas forbidden you to take usury (interest); therefore
all interest obligations shall henceforth be waived. 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.

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 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 you
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.

O People

Listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers (Salah),
fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat.

Perform Hajj if you can afford to.

All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a
non-Arabnor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white
has no superiority over a black, nor does a black have any superiority over
a white- except by pietyand good action. Learn at 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

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. People,
no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason
well therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave
behind me two things, the Quran and the Sunnah (Hadith), 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 Allah, that I have conveyed your message to your people."
