I doubt that a single person embracing Islam, regardless of his or her level of belief, practice or even disbelief; doesn’t know, or haven’t even heard about, the last sermon of Prophet Mohammad (may prayers, peace and benedictions be on him). The Sermon by which He did synthesise the Islamic Doctrine in very few lines meant to be His will to the entire human race until the Judgment day. However I am sure that most of us have forgotten the contents of that address which doesn’t exceed a simple half of a single A4 page.
That is why I am bringing the translation of that Sermon as a reminder.. A reminder that we have become so stupid as to complicate what was/is meant to be very simple.. A reminder that we have become more ignorant than our illiterate forefathers.. A reminder that we blew our progressive united brotherhood turning it into an eternal dividing regressive nemesis.. A reminder of our blunt hypocrisy of saying other than what we’re doing. Even worse, just saying and not doing anything at all.
Read it yourself, teach it to your children, pass it to your neighbours, to your friends, and remind the Imam in the Mosque near home of his duty to urge the worshipers to fulfil our prophets last request to ALL of us, “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 listen to me directly”.
On the 9th of the month of Thul Hejjah of the 10th year of the Hijrah, in the valley of Uranah at the slope of Mount Arafat, our Master and Teacher delivered this last sermon as his will to humanity:
Once we will succeed to abide by His will, or at least part of it, we should honestly remind ourselves every single morning that we are destined to die.. Whoever is born has to die someday.. So isn’t that valid enough to wake us up and invite us to reunite once more.
Maybe this could be the only good deed to leave behind for generations to come; instead of the long trails of hate, hurt and blood we are inflicting every day among ourselves.. As if we deliberately wish to deepen, and widen, the gap separating and dividing our wretched existence into the actual shabby scattered tribal fragments.. Like crumbs destined to the darkness of amnesia at the bottom of the waste bin of Human History.
Pass On The Word.
