Giving the khutbah in the local language


Can Khutba on fridays can be delivered in regional languages. Or its a must that it should be in Arabic.


Praise be to Allah.

The Friday khutbah is an act of worship which should not be done in the local language. But if there is no one present who speaks Arabic well, then it is OK to say what the people present will understand. If the people present do not understand Arabic then it is OK to translate what they need to know for them after the prayer, or to explain to them in their language what they need to know.
