Sayyiduna ‘Umar’s view about the Friday khutbah


What is the status of this Hadith and where is it found reported by Sayyidunaa Umar (radiyallahu’anhu)?

انما جعلت الخطبة موضع الركتين, من فاتته الخطبة صلى اربعا



This is a composite of two statements of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu).

The first part is recorded by Imam Ibn Abi Shaybah in his Musannaf, Hadith: 5367 with a broken chain.

The second part is also in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 537 as well as Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 5485 with a broken chain too.

Also see Jami’ut Tahsil, no. 572.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
