Reciting “Was Sultaan zillullaah..” in the second khutba


  1. I do kutbah on Friday in a masjid. In the second kutbah I read “Was Sultaanu zillullaah man ahana sultaanalllah ahana hulla” should I leave this out or read this? Some people say you should not read because in our times kings are zaalims.
  2. Which position is makruh during kutbah. Is it joining both knees and both hands on it?



  1. There is no harm in reading it because this does not refer to any particular king.
  2. We have not understood your question.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
