THE MASNOON METHOD OF DELIVERING KHUTBA
- Before the Jumuah Salaat the Imam should sit on the MIMBAR, (the raised platform in the Masjid) and the Muezzin should call out the Azaan in the presence of the Imam. The Imam should then stand up and deliver the KHUTBA facing the congregation. It is MAKROOHE TAHREEMEE to deliver the KHUTBAH in any language besides ARABIC.
- After the FIRST Khutba he should sit down for a while and then stand up again for the SECOND Khutba. Thereafter the Imam should step down and stand in FRONT of the MEHRAAB or the ARCH. The Muezzin should call out the TAKBEER and those present should stand up and offer their Salaat with the IMAM.
- The Azaan for the Khutba should be said in FRONT of the KHATEEB (the person delivering the Khutba), near the MIMBAR or from the SECOND or THIRD ROW of the Musalleen or at the END of the ROWS or from OUTSIDE the MASJID. It is ALLOWED in ALL the ways.
