TITLE :HUJJATUL WADA’

Assalamualaikum w.b.t

Our honorary emcee, wise and knowledgeable judges, my dear teachers


and fellow friend.

Reading with friends under the tree,


The event of Hujjatul Wada’ is the story.

Ladies and gentleman,


It has been nine years since our prophet Muhammad SAW lived in
Madinah and had never performed Hajj since. Therefore, in Zulkaedah
of 10 Hijriah, Prophet Muhammad SAW had prepared himself to perform
the first as well as the last Hajj of his life. Prophet Muhammad SAW
summoned the Muslimin to perform Hajj with him. It has been told that
the number of pilgrims for that year was around 90 000 pilgrims.

Says Allah in surah al-Baqarah verse 197:


“Hajj is (during) well-known months”.

My dear friends,
As a Muslim, we have to fulfil the fifth Pillar of Islam which is the need to
perform Hajj for those who could afford to do so, even once in our life,
like Prophet Muhammad SAW does. Hence, the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia had enlarged the Masjidil Haraam in order to enable pilgrims from
all around the world to perform Hajj in Makkah.

Ladies and gentleman,


While Prophet Muhammad and the Muslimin were heading to Makkah,
they recited talbiah along the way. They walked to Makkah with full of
patience just to devote themselves to Allah SWT.

Says Allah in surah al-Haj verse 27:


“And proclaim the people the Hajj (pilgrimage); they will come to you on
foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every distant pass.”

My dear friends,
In fulfilling our responsibilities towards Allah SWT, we have to be patient
in worshipping. Indeed, all human with faith will be tested. For example,
there were pilgrims who were crashed by a crane and the stampede in
Mina.

Ladies and gentleman,


After three days, Prophet Muhammad SAW arrived at Makkah. The
pilgrims moved to Mina on the 8th of Zulhijjah and spent the night there.
On the 9th of Zulhijjah, Prophet Muhammad SAW and the pilgrims went
ahead to Arafah. At Arafah, he performed the wuquf and gave his last
sermon in front of the Muslimin.

Says Allah in surah al-Baqarah verse 27:


“And complete the Hajj and umrah for Allah”.

My dear friends,
That was the Hajj taught by our dearly beloved Prophet Muhammad
SAW. This shows whatever we do, we must do it with knowledge. For
example, the Hajj pilgrims are required to join the Prime Hajj Course
organized by Tabung Haji every year.
Ladies and gentleman,
On the 9th of Zulhijjah at Arafah Hill, Prophet Muhammad SAW had
performed his sermon towards over 100 000 Muslimin.

The most important part of the Last Sermon is, it is important for us to
use al-Quran and as-Sunnah to guide our life. One of the most well-
known Hadith from Prophet Muhammad SAW that says; I’m leaving
behind two things; you will never go astray as long as you hold fast onto
them, the Quran and Sunnah. That was Rasulullah’s guarantee.

Says Allah in surah al-Maidah verse 3:


“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed my favour
upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion”.

My dear friends,
That is how truly loving our Prophet Muhammad SAW towards us.
Hence, we have to take care of our brotherhood in Islam and avoid
breaking apart. For example, when it comes to issues related to
Palestine, we have to do our best in helping them through manpower,
financially, medical and others.

Ladies and gentleman, On the 23rd of Zulhijjah, Prophet Muhammad


SAW along with the Muslimin went back from Makkah to Madinah.
Prophet Muhammad and the pilgrims arrived safely at Madinah while
chanting takbir to show gratitude towards Allah SWT.

Thank for your attention. Wabillaahi taufiq walhidayah..
