Friday Hadith

A couple of hadith relating to Jumu'ah

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "When the Imam is delivering the Khutba, and you ask your companion to keep quiet and listen, then no doubt you have done an evil act." (Bukhari: Volume 2, Book 13, Number 56)

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) talked about Friday and said, "There is an hour (opportune time) on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while praying and asks something from Allah, then Allah will definitely meet his demand." And he (the Prophet) pointed out the shortness of that time with his hands. (Bukhari:Volume 2, Book 13, Number 57)

interesting first hadith there.. wonder the reasoning here.. so if I ask someone to be quiet its me doing the evil?

Assalaamu alaikum,

Ammena: Listening to the khutbah is part of 'ibadah; we wouldn't pause in prayer to tell someone to be quiet and we shouldn't do so during the Friday khutbah.
