Q 2: Some Khutaba' here (pl. of Khatib, preacher) in the field of Da`wah (Calling to Islam) recites the three Ayahs (Qur'anic verses) of Khutbat Al-Hajah (prelude to a Khutbah [sermon] or speech) in the normal way of reciting the Qur'an aloud, is this permissible? Some of them have even replaced the Ayah:
O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth.
With that mentioned in Surah Al-Hajj:
O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him!
What is your reply to them? May Allah reward you well!
On Quoting an Ayah, it is to be recited in the same way as the Khutbah. With regards to reciting the Ayah in Surah Al-Hajj; there is no prohibition on doing this. Yet, it is not one of the Ayahs recited in Khutbat Al-Hajah..May Allah grant us success. May peace be upon our Master Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
