Farewell Khutbah for the Last Friday of Ramadan

In the Name of Almighty Allah,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

Al Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil 'Aalameen was Salaatu
was Salaamu 'alaa Ashrafil Anbiyaa'e wal Mursaleen

Wa Bad:

All Praise is due to Almighty Allah, the Bounteous King; He is the Mighty, Omnipotent, Gracious and Obliging, Who reveals Himself everyday in a different state. I always praise Him, and am thankful to Him secretly and openly. I bear witness that no one is worthy of worship but Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala. He is One and has no partner. This is the testimony which I sincerely believe with my heart and tongue. I also bear witness that our Spiritual Chief, our Apostle, and our Friend Nabee Muhammad Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam is the Servant and True Messenger, whom Almighty Allah sent with True Guidance and explanation (of Truth).
Let us reflect and ponder upon who we are, and the great blessings that have been bestowed upon us. What lessons have we learnt from this Most Holy and Auspicious Mubarak Month? Yes my most beloved brothers and sisters! It is an open secret that we have accepted this bond as something inevitable through our submission to the Din of Al Islam. Differences, disputes, and even tensions, may cast a pall on this fact, but Alhumdoelillah, they can always be washed away by recourse to wisdom, reason and forbearance.
Let us therefore view the conclusion of this most glorious month of Love and Sabir in such a spirit so as to be able to draw the benefits from it for our own selves and that of the great Islamic Ummah. Islam is the religion of humanity, Islam is the religion of moderation, wisdom, and submission to Almighty Allah Jallah Wa'ala, and without doubt all religions have been such before being subject to distortion. Islam presented to humanity the remedies of human afflictions and sufferings, remedies which were free from any form of extravagance, excess or neglect, and which were appealing and acceptable to reason. Despite what the avowed enemies of Islam have to say, Islam did it in the past and will continue to do so till the Last Day.
Alhumdoelillah! Islam has been and continues to be the Only True Path leading to a new world and holding out the promise of a life of Muhabbat, understanding, felicity, morality and salvation to mankind. Islam invited humanity toward the remembrance of Almighty Rabbul Ala'meen Exalted, humility, and an inner relationship with the Most Glorious Creator and Sustainer. It taught man and exhorted him to combat evil, aggression and corruption and to a constant struggle against egotism, selfishness, the accumulation of material wealth, and the pursuit of carnal desires.
O People who are present here! The Most Glorious Month of Ramadan is coming to an end; where are the eyes that will weep and where are the hearts that will humble themselves by the fear of Almighty Allah, the Bounteous King? You have heard this so many times from the Holy Qur'an: All the creatures will certainly die. The time of the departure of the month of Ramadan is very near and with you it will stay just like a night-guest, or like a departing beloved. Never forget that the separation of good friends is a very bitter thing; so where are those who will perform as many good deeds in this month? Undoubtedly those who have fasted, have collected great benefits and the transgressors are the losers.

Bid farewell to this month with sighs, cries and constant weeping when you say: Salaam to you, O month of Revelation: Salaam to you O Month of Forgiveness (of Allah) and release from Jahannum! Salaam to you O Month of the Illumination of Hearts! Salaam to you, O Month of compensation of past sins! Salaam to you, O Sacred month, wherein lies a night which is better than a thousand months!

Salaam, Salaam, O Month of Ramadan! Salaam to you, O Month of Ramadan! Salaam to you, O Sacred month, whose nights are blessed by Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala, and are a means of one's past sins! Salaam to you, O Month of Virtue and Blessings of Almighty Allah: Salaam to you, O Month of Charity and of fasting! Salaam to you, O Month of Ibadah, Tarawee and remembrance of Allah! Salaam to you, O Month of Takbir and glorification of Allah!

Salaam to you, O Honourable Visitor, whom we have welcomed (enthusiastically). O Traveller, we bid you an honourable farewell. Salaam, Salaam, O Month of Ramadan! Blessed are you O Month of Ramadan. O Month of Ramadan! We do not know whether you will be a witness for us, or against us (on the Day of Judgement). This is your last interview with us; we do not know whether you will return to us (in our lifetime) or whether death will overpower us. O Month of Ramadan! How fortunate is the person, to whom you will return with blessings of Almighty Allah, and how fortunate is the one, against whose misdeeds you will be a witness (on the Day of Judgement!).

May Almighty Allah Rabbul Ala'meen bless our Masaajids' with your presence for a long time, and may He light our lamps with your divine light. The performance of Tarawee is coming to an end, and our lamps are going to be put off (by your departure). No one will wait for Iftaar, and no one will see the stars for his or her Suhuur. For a time our bellies were under your command, and our eyes were kept awake in constant Ibadah. Undoubtedly, we are for Almighty Allah, and to Him we will all return! Oh! How sad will be your departure and separation from us. The day of your departure will be sorrowful for all of us. O Most Holy Month of Almighty Allah! We bid you our Salaam.

May Almighty Allah Most Merciful take mercy on the person who bid farewell to Ramadan with repentance and devotion. All of you should say: O Almighty Allah! Let us be among those who have attained salvation during the Holy month of Ramadan. Deliver us from the fire of Jahannum, by the honour of Ramadan. Pardon us with Your Mercy, O Most Merciful of those who show Mercy. And all praise is due to Almighty Allah, the Lord of all the worlds. I seek refuge in Almighty Allah, from Shaytaan the rejected one. (Says Almighty Allah in the Holy Qur'an)! The pious will reside in an abode of Peace, in Jannah (with) fountains; they will be dressed in brocade and silk, as they sit before each other.

Subahana Rabieka Rabiel Iezzatie Amma Yaseefoon Wasalamoon Alal Moersaleem
Wal Hamdoelillahi Rabbiel Ala'meen Bierahmatika Ya Arahammar Raheemeen.

Ameen Ya Rabbal Ala'meen.

Baarak Allaahu Feekum wa-sal Allaahu wa-Sallam 'alaa
Nabiyyina Muhammad Sallallahoo Alayhi Wasallam.

Was Salamualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
