The Purpose of the Jumma Khutbah
Compiled & Translated
Abbas Abu Yahya
1 – Objective of Khutbah
Shamsuddeen Muhammad bin Abee Bakr Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said:
‘On the day of Jumma’ there is a Khutbah (sermon) the objective of which is to glorify Allaah and regard Him as Magnificent, and testify to singling out Allaah Alone as the Creator, and testify that His Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- brought the message.
Also to remind the worshippers about the Messenger’s days. To warn the people from Allaah’s torment and His punishment, and advising them with that which will bring them closer to Allaah and to His Paradise.
Likewise prohibiting them from that which will bring them close to His Anger and His Fire. Therefore, this is the purpose / intent of the Khutbah and gathering for it.’
