The Farewell Sermon (Khuṭbatu l-Wadāʿ), also known as Muhammad’s Final Sermon or The Last Sermon, was delivered by the Islamic prophet, Muhammad on this day in 632 in the Uranah valley of Mount Arafat, during the Islamic pilgrimage of Hajj.

Muhammad al-Bukhari refers to the sermon and quotes part of it in his Sahih al-Bukhari. Part of it is also present in Sahih Muslim and Sunan Abu Dawood. Various versions of the sermon have been published, including several English translations. The sermon consists of a series of general exhortations for Muslims to follow the teachings that Muhammad had set forth in the Quran and sunnah.
