Sleeping during the Friday Khutbah

Q: What is the religious ruling on those who sleep during the Friday Sermon until Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) awakens them?

A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Light naps that do not cause a loss of consciousness do not invalidate Wudu’ (ablution). It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to delay ‘Isha’ (Night) Prayer on some occasions, until the heads of the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) would nod off, then they would pray without performing Wudu’ again.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
