Khutba of Juma in other language than Arabic

19 Dec 2021 Ref-No#: 4201

Assalamu alaikum
Can Juma khutba be given in any other language than Arabic according to Hanafi madhab ?


Wa ʿAlaykumus Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh

The Jumuʿah Khuṭbah has to be delivered in the Arabic language just like how the Athān, Iqāmah, and Ṣalāh are all conducted in the Arabic language.

The practice of the companions of the Prophet ﷺ too was to deliver the Khuṭbah in the Arabic language despite the many people from different areas who have accepted Islām and were not Arabs or could not speak Arabic.

There is no problem in delivering advice in a local language besides Arabic prior to commencing the Khuṭbah.
