Something my main man, Hasan from QuranJam.com put together a while back. I was meaning to do a post on this…
Do you know the feeling? Are you content to simply complain, or do you want to help me do something about it?
“Yes! Finally!” you might be thinking, “Grab your torches, everybody! Down with the uncles!”
I’ve noticed that a lot of the uncles giving khutbahs have amazing, amazing potential. All they need to do is refine their technique of delivery a little and they’ll be giving some super awesome khutbahs, in sha Allah.
So instead of tearing down the uncles, we’re going to help them become better. All it’s going to take is a printer and a designated brother sitting in the first row during every jumuah at your masjid.
Step 1: Print out the attached Word document. It’s a letter that will teach the khateeb how to give awesome khutbahs.
Step 2: Fold it (or put it in an envelope) and stash it in your pocket.
Step 3: Sit in the first row during the jumuah khutbah (if you’re a sister, you can give it to your brother/husband/father and have him sit in the front row).
Step 4: If you think the khateeb can benefit from the document, pull it out from your pocket and hand it to him after the prayer.
Step 5: Make dua that he benefits from your naseehah.
So who’s going to help me in this? If you’re down with, in sha Allah, printing out the document and using it at your next jumuah (and every jumuah thereafter, if you like), post here with a special dua for this success of this project.
Jazaakum Allahu khaira!
Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, ameen.
