Now regarding the sermon or seventh of a line or children of Adam to appreciate the eloquence and diligence of the message, completed during the pilgrimage of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want to read out a translation of the version that I have for you. And then inshallah we will proceed with the logic and there's so many there's numerous lessons that we can gain from it. But we are confined to sticking to time today. We can't go over time yesterday, we we broke the barriers. We broke the barriers yesterday, we are confined to time. Thus, I have extracted five lessons and not to sixth one insha Allah, but I will share with you that I will share with you now also we're
going to read this in the English language and the eloquence of it in the Arabic language is lost. When you read it in the English language. The English language is a weaker language in terms of its ability to capture the emotion and eloquence of the Arabic language and this is well known, this is well known and perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless us all with the Arabic language and bless us all with the ability to read it one day in the Arabic language in the words that masala Allahu alayhi wa sallam used when he addressed this to have
after praising Allah Subhana who were to Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the people, O people,
O people, lend me an attentive ear.
Now somebody might ask very quickly, that we have a microphone here, that's amplifying my voice. How is How did 114,000 so However, here are some of us that Allahu alayhi wa sallam on the plains of Africa. When he was on his mount addressing them, this is a question that comes to mind. And the historian say that they had these coils that were placed at different portions, or different segments of the sufu of the lines.
Like how we have in Salah. So when the mom says Allahu Akbar, a cola in the middle will announce the tequila, so those behind him can hear. So this is how the message was being conveyed to everyone. So Pamela supanova, look at the ease that we have today. Right? Look at the ease that we have today, and look at the backwardness in terms of religious progress that we have in our lives.
So he said to them, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year I shall ever be amongst you have
mentioned how emotional that is to hear the person who you love. Say I don't know if I will be with you next year. So he says Allahu Allah, he was sending them therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully, and take these words to those who could not be present here today. An invitation to doubt. Take this is a command. Take these words to those who cannot be present here today. And this is you and I are servants of Allah and O Children of Adam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never forgot about us when he stood there many many centuries ago. He never forgot about you and I Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allah, how quick are we to forget him today?
He actually said in his speech to the Sahaba that take it to those who are not here today. And they will obviously relate these words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to those that they taught the sermon to and would tell them as well, that take this to those who are not here today, and this is a chain reaction. Thus, the sermon exists with us today. 1000s of years later.
How Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was selfless enough. On his deathbed is he's crying out to allow for his own that you and i, you and I are servants of Allah.
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He announces one day at how He loves to meet his brothers.
He loves to meet he's
supposed to have a law who said
we are your brothers.
And he said, No. You are my companion.
I yearn to meet my brothers. That's That's us.
A young to meet my brothers, those who will come who would not have seen me and would not have witness the revelation, but they will believe in me and declared the oneness of Allah Subhana who have those are my brothers and how are you going to meet
Allah Subhana whoever and again gathers with him in general
and allow us to meet him on the day of a ama and make us from amongst those
that drink from his
blistered hand from his house, on the day of Try not those who are turned away by the angels. And when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam cries out and says, These are my people, he gets told that you don't know what they did, will not protect us or me. He says, Take these words to those who could not be present here today. And then he said, Salalah alayhi wa salam, O people, just as you regard this month, will hijack. And this day, the day of alpha, and Lissa T the city of Mecca, as sacred, as sacred, as holy, just as you do this, thus regard the life and the property of every Muslim, as sacred, and as a sacred trust
and return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owner, and hurt no one, so that no one may hurt you.
And remember, that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that he will de take you to account for you.
So Pamela, what an amazing opening.
He says, God, Allah subhanho wa Taala has forbidden you to take usury and interest. Therefore all interest obligations, shall hence for the way 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 the interest due to abas even Abdulmutallab shall have hence for the wave.
Beware of sharepad
for the safety of your religion,
he has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in the bigger battles.
So be aware of following him in the smaller battles.
Or people, it is true that you have certain rights with regards to your female, but understand that they also have rights over you.
Remember, that you have taken them as your lives only under a trust from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If they abide by your right, then to them belongs the right to be fed and to be close.
To them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness These are from the rights of our wives, as the Sharia has also set a right over us that we shall to them. These are from the rights that a wife enjoys in a marriage which Allah subhana wa Taala has placed over a spouse.
Then the Summa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do treat your females well your spouse's well 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 to never be unchaste
Oh people listen to me in earnest. Worship Allah, perform the five daily prayers fast during the month of Ramadan, and offer these occur and perform the Hajj. If you have the means.
All of mankind is from Adam and Hawa
an Arab has no superiority over an Arab. Nor does an Arab have any superiority over an Arab. Why has no superiority over black, nor does black have any superiority over white, except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood, 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 an injustice to yourself. And remember one day you will appear before God, Allah subhanho wa Taala and the answer for your deeds. So be aware. Do not stray from the past.
of righteousness, after I am gone,
after I am gone,
oh people, no prophet, or apostle will come after me, and no new faith will be born this reason well,
and therefore all people understand these words which I conveyed to you. And I leave behind two things, the Quran and the Sunnah. And if you follow these, you will never, ever go astray.
All those who listened to me shall pass on my words to others, and those to others again. And it may be that the last ones understand my words, better than those who are listening to me right now directly to Panama, to Panama, it may just be that you and I understand these words better than those who heard these words from the mouth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's Allah who opens the hearts towards understanding His revelation. And the Sunnah is from the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He then said, be my witness, yeah, Allah, Allah that I have conveyed your message to your people. So
this is it in a nutshell or servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, amazing, and amazing eloquence, and amazing, brevity, and an amazing conciseness we almost have Hannah who Allah make us followers of this message, and decree us to be what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the year after me
