HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Irbad bin Sariyah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: One day, Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) delivered a very effective speech, as a result, eyes shed tears and hearts became softened. A man said: "O Prophet of Allah! It sounds as if this is a farewell speech, so advise us.'' He (Peace Be Upon Him) said, "I admonish you to fear Allah, and to listen and obey even if a slave has been appointed as your leader. For whoever among you lives after me will see much discord. So hold fast to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs who will come after me. Adhere to them and hold fast to them. Beware of Bid`ah (in religion) because every Bid`ah is a misguidance.'' [Abu Da wud and At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary: According to this Hadith, the best sermon may be defined as brief, comprehensive, appealing and beneficial.
