Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Can Khutba on fridays can be delivered in regional languages. Or its a must that it should be in Arabic.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
The Friday khutbah is an act of worship which should not be done in the local language. But if there is no one present who speaks Arabic well, then it is OK to say what the people present will understand. If the people present do not understand Arabic then it is OK to translate what they need to know for them after the prayer, or to explain to them in their language what they need to know.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
