BE SILENT during the Jumuah Khutbah

Hazrat Salman Al Farsi (RA) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Whoever takes a ghusl on a Friday and pays attention to cleanliness, as far as possible, and applies whatever oil and perfume there is in his house and then goes out (for Jumuah Salah) and does not sit between two people (by inconveniencing them), then performs the Sunnah Salah which is prescribed for him and then remains silent whilst the Imam is delivering the Khutbah, all his (minor) sins will be forgiven, for that Jumuah and the next.” (Bukhari)

As much as the rewards are great, severe warnings are sounded to those who disregard the sanctity of the Khutbah.

Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (RA) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Whoever speaks whilst the Imam is delivering the Khutbah on the day of Jumuah is like a donkey carrying a pile of books and whoever tells him to be silent there is no (reward in) Jumuah for him.” (Musnad Ahmad)

According to jurists, it is Makrooh Tahreemi (forbidden) to speak during the Khutbah. Hence we understand the importance of remaining silent and attentive during the Khutbah.
