O People! Your Lord is One and Your Father is One…

Jabir ibn Abdullah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, addressed us during the middle of the day at the end of the pilgrimage as his farewell sermon. The Prophet said, “O people, your Lord is one and your father Adam is one. There is no virtue of an Arab over a foreigner nor a foreigner over an Arab, and neither white over black nor black over white, except through righteousness. Have I not delivered the message?” They said, “Of course, O Messnger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “Let the witness inform those who are absent.” ( Sahih li ghayri)
