Jump to navigation. The last sermon of the Prophet-peace be upon him- is known as Khutbatul Wada'. It is mentioned in almost all books of Hadith. Following Ahadith in Sahih Al-Bukhari refer to the sermon and quote part of it.
Imam al-Tirmidhi has mentioned this sermon in Hadith nos. Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal has given us the longest and perhaps the most complete version of this sermon in his Masnud, Hadith no. 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 sermon 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. Following are the basic points mentioned in this khutbah:. O People Lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.
Therefor 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. Allah has forbidden you to take usury interest ; therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity.
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.
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 therefor, do injustice to yourselves. 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. A very informative text with good description but there is a confusion if anyone can clear with reference please Well in the same sermon prophet pbuh raised the hand of Hazrat Ali and said something important that cannot be taken for granted and soon after they celebrated for 3 days The first narration is only quoted by one source.
The second narration is quoted by many sources. However, if we examine both narrations, we will see the the word "Quran" which is "common" in both narrations. If we investigate about the word "Sunnah" which means the traditions of the holy Prophet P. H and those were demonstrated by him in his life time. Also, according to the first narration, he is leaving two Things. Quran is a "Thing" which is with us in physical form and will remain until the day of Judgment without any change or alteration; His Sunnah is not A Thing in physical form and as we all know that there are more than 5 School of Thoughts in Muslims and they do not agree on many issues, narrations and traditions and they have their own understanding of "Sunnah"; I give you a simple example here; Among the major 5 school of thoughts, they all pray Salaat 5 times a day but their Wudu is performed slightly differently?
Now we examine the other narration that states "I am leaving 2 things the Quran and my Ahl e Bait":. The Quran is a physical thing which is left and that gives you guidance and if you follow the commands, you will never go astray. The Ahl e Bait are the "physical thing" who were left behind after the departure of our holy Prophet P.
H and who were the perfect examples and closest in observing Prophet's P. H Sunnah and displaying and demonstrating to the Ummah. In addition to the above statement, there are numerous and continuous chain of Ahadith that shed the light and provides a logical and evidential conclusion to prove that the narration stating "Leaving 2 things" is the right narration of our holy Prophet P. Hadis no. S ; whoever boards on that Ark will not go astray.
Hadis No. S , his son in law Ali A. S , his grand sons Hassan A. S Hussain A. S ; so, if we try to understand the both narrations, we would come to the conclusion that, in the first Hadis, He P. H is directly guiding the Umma to follow Ahl e Bait after him and they will guide you towards the right path and save you from going astray. In the 2nd Hadis, The Prophet P.
H have stated name by name, Ali a. H is trying to make us understand that "his Ahl e Bait are from him and "He" P. H is from "Them" means, they possess all of his qualities, virtues, seer'a and knowledge and if we Muslims wants to seek a guidance after me in order to follow the right path and stay away from going astray, then follow the guidance of his Ahl e Bait.
I would also like to add some very relevant Ayaat Verses from Holy Quran that indicates perhaps the direction we have discussed in my above mentioned commentary:. Verse : "Say no reward do I ask of you for this except the love of those near of kin" Allah the High:. Verse Al Sajda 24 And we made from among them, leaders, giving guidance under our command, when they were patient and used to believe with certainty in our Ayaat:.
H brought Ali a. Alhamdullillah, I'm happy to be one of those who belief in the Last Prophet that such a world-class sermon. O Allah! Help Muslims stick to the teachings of the prophet SAW. S protect us from this evil world. The subject of death is very important to all of us. Every one of us has to die. In this regard Allah mentioned in the Quran in Surah Al-Zumar that everyone has to die including the Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him himself: "Truly thou wilt die one day , and truly they too will die one day Quran May Allah bless your community with His mercy and may Allah give you the ability to relate to your neighbors in a dynamic way.
