اَلسَّلاَ مُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَا تُهُ Assalaamu ‘Alaykum Warahmatullaahi Wabarakaatuh,

Please explain these Ahadith and the meaning of the sun setting in a spring of water.

Yazid bin Harun- Sufyan bin Husain- Al-Hakam bin ‘Utaybah- Ibrahim (b. Yazid al-Taymi)- Yazid al-Taymi- Abu Dharr رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنهم said: I was sitting behind the Apostle of Allah صلى عليه وسلم who was riding a donkey while the sun was setting. He asked: Do you know where this sets? I replied: Allah and his Apostle know best. He said: It sets in a spring of warm water. (Sunan Abu Dawud (رحمه الله), Hadith 3991)

Abu Dharr رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه narrated, “Once I was with the Prophet (صلى عليه وسلم) riding a donkey on which there was a saddle or a (piece of) velvet. That was at sunset. He said to me, ‘O Abu Dharr (رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه), do you know where this (sun) sets?’ I said, ‘Allah (سبحانه و تعالى‎) and His Messenger (صلى عليه وسلم) know better.’ He said, ‘It sets in a spring of murky water, (then) it goes and prostrates before its Lord, the Exalted in Might and the Ever-Majestic, under the Throne. And when it is time to go out, Allah (سبحانه و تعالى‎) allows it to go out and thus it rises. But, when He wants to make it rise where it sets, He locks it up. The sun will then say, “O my Lord, I have a long distance to run.” Allah (سبحانه و تعالى‎) will say, “Rise where you have set.” That (will take place) when no (disbelieving) soul will get any good by believing then.’” (Musnad Ahmad (رحمه الله), Hadith 21459 al-Risala ed.) Sahih in chain (Al Albani)

Also please tell me about the authenticity of the farewell sermon (خطبة الوداع)

Here you can check with authenticity as there are two versions.

And here you can check the scholars: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Islam_scholars_diagram

The Hadith you quoted is with respect to one of the last signs of Qiyamah when Sun will rise from the West.
