The Farewell Sermon
Whom did the Holy Prophet (SAWW) ... and why?
A decade after the migration to Madinah, the Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) returned to. Makkah for a final pilgrimage . There were more than 120,000 Muslims present with Prophet during his last pilgrimage to hear him speak. On that occasion Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) undertook his farewell sermon but his voice could not reach out to the whole crowd. Among the people there was a young man named Rabiah Ibn Umayya Ibn Khalaf who was known far and wide for his loud voice. Therefore, he was requested to repeat his word after him. In this way everyone got the glorious message.
