In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.
Love for All, Hatred for None.
The Prophet's son Ibrahim passed away. It grieved him deeply but he remained patient and resigned to the will of God.
"Make things easy for the people. Do not make it hard for them. Give them happiness and do not create hate."
"At Thy service, o Lord, at Thy service! There is no partner with Thee; we are at Thy service. For Thee is all praise, from Thee are all gifts and to Thee are all thanks. We are at Thy service; there is no partner with Thee; we are at Thy service."
"O ye people, hear my speech. I do not know whether I will be meeting you here after this year. O ye people, your blood and your property and your honour are sacred amongst you until you meet your Lord as is sacred this day, this month, this town. Whoso has with him the trust of the other he should render it to him. Every kind of interest is forbidden this day. The interest due to Abbas bin Muttabib is remitted today. All the bloodshed in the time of ignorance is forgiven. I forgive first the blood of Ibne Rabia bin Harith bin Abdul Muttalib.Then lifting two hands, the Prophet joined the fingers of one to the fingers of the other and said,
God has appointed for every one a share in the property. No "will" shall now be accepted that wrongs a rightful heir. A child born in a house shall be regarded the child of the father in the house.
O men, you have some rights over your wives. Your wives also have rights over you. Your right over them is that they should lead chaste lives and not take ways that bring shame to the husband in the sight of the people.
Your duty is to provide them with food and garments and shelter according to your standard. Remember, you should always treat your wives well. God has charged you with the duty of taking good care of them. Woman is weak and cannot protect her own rights. God has appointed you the trustee of those rights.
O men, you still have with you some prisoners of war. I advise you to feed them and clothe them in the same way and style as you feed and clothe yourselves.
O men, what I say to you, you should hear and remember. All Muslims are as brethren to one another. All of you are equal. All men of whatever nation or tribe, and whatever position are equal."
"Even as the fingers of the two hands are equal, so are human beings equal to one another. No one has any right, nor any preference to claim over another. You are brothers."Then he asked,
"Do you know what month is this? What city we are in? What day of the year it is today?"It was the sacred day, the Prophet announced:
"Even as this month is sacred, this land sacred and this day sacred, so has God made the lives, property and honour of every man sacred."Proceeding he said:
"What I command you today is not for today only. It is for all times to come. You should remember and obey until you leave this world and go to the next to meet your Creator.
What I have said to you, carry it to the ends of the world. May be the one who has not heard benefits from it more than the one who has."
"O ye people, I am only a man, perhaps God's angel might come and I have to accept the call. I am leaving in your midst two things. The first is the Book of Allah which has guidance and light. Hold fast to the Book of Allah, therefore, hold fast to it; and my house-hold. I remind you of Allah in respect of the people of my house."
The Prophet also advised his followers to honour the good Ansars and to overlook the errors of the weak among them.
"They have done their duty. Now you have to do your to them,"said he.
As his condition grew gradually worse, death seemed laying its hand on him. He was last heard murmuring the prayer,
"Allah the best friend."When the breathing became hard he uttered his last advice,
"Mind your prayers and your slaves."
