He delivers Khutbah on Fridays about biographies, such as the biography of one of the Sahabah

Q: Is it permissible for the Khatib (preacher) to deliver a Khutbah (sermon) about the biography of one of the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet Muhammad) (may Allah be pleased with them), the Tabi`un (Followers, the generation after the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad) or any others who paid great service to Islam, focusing on the great manners and virtues of the person?

A: The Friday Khutabah should not be restricted to recounting biographies. The Khatib should rather command people to fear Allah, offer gentle preaching and clarify for the congregation all the things they may need with regard to their Din (Islam). There is no harm to relate some events of the biography of a righteous man as a means of encouraging people to take him as a role model. However, the Khutbah should not be exclusively restricted to that purpose.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
