[Mention, O Muhammad], the Day We will call forth every people with their record [of deeds]. Then whoever is given his record in his right hand - those will read their records, and injustice will not be done to them, [even] as much as a thread [inside the date seed].
Hazrat Abu-Darda (RA) narrated Once the Prophet (SAWS) delivered a short Khutbah (sermon). When he’s finished with his Khutbah he said:
Stand up, O Abu Bakr! Deliver a Khutbah as well.
Abu Bakr (RA) stood up and delivered a shorter Khutbah than our Prophet (SAWS) . After that. the Prophet (SAWS) said:
Stand up, O Umar! Deliver a Khutbah as well.
Umar (RA) stood up and delivered a short Khutbah than Abu Bakr. The Prophet (SAWS) said stand up to so and so! Deliver a Khutbah as well! He was unable to beautify his words. After He (SAWS) told him to “Sit”, He (SAWS) then said:
Stand up, O Ummu (the mother of) Abd’s son (Abdullah bin Masud). Deliver a Khutbah as well.
Abdullah bin Masud stood up and after praising Allah said:
O my people! Certainly Allah is our Lord, Islam is our religion, the Qu’ran is our guide, the House of Allah is our Kibla, (whilst indicating to the Prophet (SAWS) ) this noble person is our Prophet (SAWS) . Whatever pleases Allah and His Messenger also pleases us. Whatever does not please Allah and His Messenger also does not please us. Peace be upon you.
The Prophet (SAWS) then said:
Ibn Masud got it right and spoke correctly. Whatever pleases Allah, my community and Ibn Masud also pleases me. Whatever does not please Allah, my community and Ibn Masud, does not please me.
