Whatever Happened to the Jum’ah Khutbah that Allah Gave?
And that Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam, Practiced and Delivered to the Muslims?
Where Did that Khutbah Go?

Dr. Firdaus

I do not know what other people do, or have, but Allah gave us, Muslims, Jum’ah and Jum’ah Khutbah as an instrument of comprehensive social, “religious,” political, economic and cultural reform, revival and regeneration. Based on that alone, that is using the Jum’ah Khutbahs alone, Muslims can easily clean the state of Muslims -- and the state of the world -- and build a new and better world for everybody wherever they are, in whichever part of the world.

But Muslims have effectively abandoned the Jum’ah Khutbah the way it was practiced and delivered to them by Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallam, and managed to blunt the potency and potential of Jum’ah Khutbahs pretty much everywhere in the world.

And then the Muslims wonder why the world is the way it is and why the world is treating them the way it does.
