Introduction of the Prophet’s Sermons

Narrated Abdullah bin Masud, that the Messenger of Alláh SAWW taught us Khuthatul-Hajjah:

He would then recite three Avdt (Verses ofthe Qurán):

O you who believe! Fear Alláh (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining frorn all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. (Obey Hirn, be thankful to Hirn, and remember Him always.) and die not except in a state of Islam [as Muslims (with complete submission to Alláhj].” (3: 102)

O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam), and from him (Adam) He created his wife [Hawwa (Eve)].” (4: 1) And

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Alláh and fear Him, and “Therefore proclaim openly (Alláh’s Message – Islámic Monotheism) that which you are commanded, and turn away frorn Al-Mushrikún (polytheists, idolaters, and disbelievers).” (15:94 ) And

“And warn your tribe (O Muhammad ;i) of near kindred. And be kind and humble to the believers who follow you.” (26:214,215)

This is when the Prophet *mounted the Safa Mount (in Makkah) and declared with the loudest voice, Wa-sabahah, which is a cry the Arabs used to herald when an imminent danger is about to encompass their people or tribe. He started heralding next, “O Bani Fihr! O Bani ‘Adi! O Bani Ka’b!’ mentioning the sub-tri bes of Quraish by name. When they gathered, he said to thern:

“What if 1told you that there are horsemen in the valley about to attack you, would you believe me?” The said, “Yes, we only experienced truth from you.” The Prophet SAWW ;i said, “Then I am a Warner for you ofthe coming of asevere Torment.”

Abu Lahab (the Prophet’s uncle) said:

“Perish you O Muhamrnad! Is this why you gathered us here?” Then the Divine Inspiration came:

“Perish the hands of Abu Lahab! And perish he!”¡ (11 I: 1)
