Khutbah excerpt: (MP3): Make That REAL Connection with the Poor and Don’t Be Arrogant!

{Listen HERE} From the khutbah entitled, “Shunning Riyaa’ and Arrogance as Ramadhaan Ends,”

In this brief excerpt from a Ramadhaan khutbah, Moosaa Richardson stresses the importance of taking the theoretical sympathy for the poor that builds up within from the hunger and thirst of our days of fasting into something real, a real connection to the poor and needy. Perhaps you may never return to giving your zakaat through charity organizations again after practicing this advice!

Fataawa Series from the Scholars in Yemen – 6 : Eid al-Fitr

By Abu Abdur Rahman Yahya ibn Ali Al-Hajoree (May Allah preserve him), the Muhaddith , Sincere Avisor and Successor to Shaykh Muqbil (may Allah have mercy on him) in Dammaj; Trans. Abu Aaliyah Abdullah ibn Dwight Battle Doha, Qatar 1430 ©

Question 3 of 6:

What is the verdict for using a microphone to say the Takbeer during the Eid after every Athan ?


To say the takbeer in this fashion is an innovation. It is a recommended act to say the

takbeer during the Eid in the marketplace, the home, the street, in the car while driving,

in the bed, etc. There isn’t any evidence to support the takbeer to be said in unison, or

for a person to stand up and say it on the microphone. Both of these actions are

incorrect. The takbeers aren’t a call to prayer, which the people must hear.
