  • O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of

The Prophet Muhammad's(PBUH) Last Sermon
  • After praising thanking GOD he said "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 TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO
  • O people, just as you regard this month, this
    city as sacred, so regard the life 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. Beware of Satan, for
    the safety of your religion.

The Prophet Muhammad's(PBUH) Last Sermon
  • O people it is true that you have certain rights
    with regard to your women, but they also have
    rights over you. Remember that you have taken
    them as your waives only under ALLAH's trust
    with His permission. If they abide by your right
    then to them belongs the right to be fed
    clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well
    be kind to them for they are your partners
    committed helpers.
  • O people, listen to me earnest, worship your
    LORD, do your five daily prayers, fast during the
    month of Ramadan, give your wealth to
    Zakat(Charity). Perform Hajj (Pilgrimage) if you
    can afford to.

The Prophet Muhammad's(PBUH) Last Sermon
  • All mankind are from Adam Eve, an Arab has no
    Superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has
    superiority over an Arab ALSO a white has no
    superiority over a black nor a black has any
    superiority over white except by piety good
    action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to
    another Muslim that the Muslims constitute one
  • Remember, one day you will appear before the GOD
    answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray
    from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
    ME NO FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well,
    therefor, O people, understand words which I
    convey to you. I leave behind me two things, The
    QURAN my examples the Sunnah if you follow
    these you will never go astray.

Shahadah (Declaration of Faith)

Meaning of Shahadah
  • Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god-
    Who knows (all things) both secret and open He,
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah is He, than
    Whom there is no other god- the Sovereign, the
    Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection),
    the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety,
    the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the
    Supreme Glory to Allah! (High is He) above the
    partners they attribute to Him. He is Allah, the
    Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or
    Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names
    whatever is in the heavens and on earth, both
    declare His Praises and Glory and He is the
    Exalted in Might, the Wise. (5922-24)

Saum (Fasting)
  • Cannot eat from dawn to sunset
  • Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan
  • Fasting helps Muslims
  • O ye who believe! fasting is prescribed to you as
    it was prescribed to those before you that ye may

  • 2183
  • Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the
    Qur'an as a guide to mankind also clear (Signs)
    for guidance and judgment (between right and
    wrong). So everyone of you who is present (at
    his home) during that month should spend it in
    fasting but if anyone is ill or on a journey the
    prescribed period (should be made up) by days
    later. Allah intends every facility for you He
    does not want to put you to difficulties. (He
    wants you) to complete the prescribed period and
    to glorify Him in that He has guided you and
    perchance ye shall be grateful.
