Speaking during the interval when the imaam falls silent between the two khutbahs
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible to speak during the interval when the imaam falls silent between the two khutbahs at Jumu’ah (Friday) prayer? Is it permissible to make a gesture by pointing to one’s lips with one’s forefinger in order to remind a person that he should not speak during the khutbah?

Praise be to Allaah.
It is permissible to speak during the interval when the imaam falls silent between the two khutbahs, if there is a need to do so. It is OK to gesture to one who speaks whilst the imaam is preaching, to tell him to be quiet, just as it is also permissible to gesture during the prayer if there is a need to do so. May Allaah help us all.
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.
