Yahya bin Abu Muta' said:"I heard 'Irbad bin Sariyah say: 'One day, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) stood up among us and delivered a deeply moving speech to us that melted our hearts and caused our eyes to overflow with tears. It was said to him: 'O Messenger of Allah, you have delivered a speech of farewell, so enjoin something upon us.' He said: 'I urge you to fear Allah, and to listen and obey, even if (your leader) is an Abyssinian slave. After I am gone, you will see great conflict. I urge you to adhere to my Sunnah and the path of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, and cling to it with the molars.( Hold to it and stick fast to it). And beware of newly-invented matters, for every innovation is a misguidance.'"

It was narrated by Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Ibn Hibbaan in his Saheeh. At-Tirmidhi said: The Hadeeth is saheeh, and classed as Saheeh by al-Albaani.

This is one of the most comprehensive commandments that have many implications, which the Jurists 'have elaborated on and explained, and in it the news that every believer must consider, and prepare himself - if appeared in his time - to coexist with it without violating the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger peace and blessings be upon him.

The preaching of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was eloquent. It is easy for people to memorize and to understand the included noble meanings. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was granted the all-inclusive words and Allah ordained him to address people in correspondence to what their minds can perceive, he will inform them of what is good for them, and say to them a word that touches their hearts.

As if you have delivered a speech of farewell, what do you command us to do? What should we do after you? As if he had wanted to listen more to this sermon, or perhaps it is understood that behind it - if extended - a lot of good they should not miss, they knew that it is his habit to talk briefly, and that he should illustrate on this commandment; they were afraid to be silent after they found rest, their hearts cheered and their eyes wept from the fear of Allah, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, responded to what they asked about him, he said: 'I urge you to fear Allah, and to listen and obey, even if (your leader) is an Abyssinian slave. After I am gone, you will see great conflict. I urge you to adhere to my Sunnah and the path of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, and cling to it with the molars.( Hold to it and stick fast to it). And beware of newly-invented matters, for every innovation is a misguidance.'"
