If a Muslim is listening attentively to the Friday Khutbah (sermon) and suddenly finds that someone sitting near them in the Masjid (mosque) is stretching his hand out to shake hands with them while the Imam is delivering the Khutbah. Should they ignore him or shake his hand?
The Muslim should shake his hand, without saying a word. If someone greets another during the first Khutbah, they can respond to the greeting after the Imam finishes the first Khutbah. If someone greets another during the second Khutbah, they can respond to the greeting after the Imam finishes the second Khutbah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
