Prophet Muhammad's(pbuh)Last Sermon
This Sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.Hin the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat"O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I don't know whether, afterthis year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what Iam saying to you carefully and take these words to those who couldnot 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 noone so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meetyour Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah hasforbidden you to take usury (Interest), therefore all interest obligationshall henceforth be waived...Beware of Satan, for your safety of your religion. He has lost all hopethat 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 with regard to yourwomen, but they also have right over you. If they abide by your rightthen to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do
 
treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partnersand committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not makefriends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never tocommit adultery.O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five dailyprayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadhan, and give yourwealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. You know thatevery Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. You are all equal.Nobody has superiority over other except by piety and good action.Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer for yourdeeds. So beware, do not astray from the path of righteousness after Iam gone.O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faithwill be born. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand mywords which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, theQur'an and my example, the Sunnah and if you follow these you willnever go astray.All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and thoseto others again; and may the last ones understand my words betterthan those who listen to me directly. Be my witness oh Allah that Ihave conveyed your message to your people."
Conditions of marriage
Q).
Could you please explain the relative importance of the practicesof marriage and which of them are essential for the marriage contractand which are only recommended or voluntary?
Sherfudeen, Madinah
 
A).
Marriage itself is a Sunnah, which means that it isrecommended, not obligatory to us. Therefore, if aMuslim does not marry throughout his life, he commitsno sin, although he has chosen a course for his lifedifferent from that recommended by the Prophet. Therecommendation is made in the strongest of terms, asthe Prophet says: "Marriage is my way, (i.e. Sunnah)and a person who disdains to follow my way does notbelong to me." Yet the emphasis put on therecommendation is only to heighten its desirability. It isnot to be understood from this hadith that a personwho remains unmarried throughout his life removeshimself from the fold of Islam or even commits a sin.
 
Divorce on the other hand is permissible but describedas unsavory or distasteful. It is permitted because of
