Answer

(Fatwa: 1492/1218=D/1430)

 

The Jumua Khutbah should be recited in Arabic, it is unlawful to deliver the same in non-Arabic. There is no proof of non-Arabic khutbah from the time of the Sahabah and those who followed them. You should try to perform salah in a mosque the khutbah is recited in Arabic. Those are right who say that the khutbah should be in Arabic.
