Sunnats of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse – Part Eleven

Written by

18. It is waajib (compulsory) for one to remain silent while the khutbah is being delivered e.g. Jumu‘ah, nikaah, eid, etc. If one speaks during the khutbah, one will be sinful.[1]

عن ابن عباس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من تكلم يوم الجمعة والإمام يخطب فهو كمثل الحمار يحمل أسفارا والذي يقول له: أنصت ليس له جمعة رواه أحمد والبزار والطبراني في الكبير وفيه مجالد بن سعيد وقد ضعفه الناس ووثقه النسائي في رواية (مجمع الزوائد رقم 3123)

Hazrat ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The example of the one who speaks on the day of Jum‘uah while the Imaam delivers the khutbah is like that of a donkey which carries a load of books on its back (i.e. just as a donkey carrying a load of Deeni books on its back does not benefit from the Deeni books, similarly the one who speaks while the khutbah is in progress will not receive any benefit). And the one who asks another to remain silent (while the khutbah is being delivered), there is no Jumu‘ah for him (i.e. even though he is advising another to remain silent during the khutbah, he himself has committed a sin due to speaking while the khutbah is in progress).”

Glory be to You, O Allah, with all Praise; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.

17. If one wishes to hear a Deeni discourse over a CD, radio, receiver etc. then it is important for one to first find out the reliability of the person who had delivered the discourse as well as the subject matter that had been discussed. Not exercising caution in this regard leads to confusion being created in one’s Deen.

قال محمد بن سيرين رحمه الله: إن هذا العلم دين فانظروا عمن تأخذون دينكم (صحيح مسلم باب بيان أن الإسناد من الدين الخ، شمائل الترمذي)

Hazrat Muhammed bin Seereen (rahimahullah) had stated, “Indeed this knowledge is your Deen, so be careful from whom you acquire your Deen.”

15. When the blessed name of Hazrat Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is mentioned in the Deeni discourse or in any gathering, then it is waajib (compulsory) for one to recite durood upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Thereafter, whenever the blessed name of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is taken, it is mustahab (preferable) to recite durood. [1]

[1]ولو سمع اسم النبي عليه السلام فإنه يصلي عليه فإن سمع مرارا في مجلس واحد اختلفوا فيه قال بعضهم لا يجب عليه أن يصلي إلا مرة كذا في فتاوى قاضي خان وبه يفتى كذا في القنية وقال الطحاوي يجب عليه الصلاة عند كل سماع والمختار قول الطحاوي كذا في الولوالجية (الهندية 5/315)
