Once the Imam has completed the Khutbah he should not delay in commencing with the Jumu’ah Salaah. Nevertheless, it will be permissible for the Imam to make an announcement concerning religious matters when necessary e.g. he reminds the Musallis to straighten the Saff. It will be Makrooh (odious) to make an announcement pertaining to worldly affairs. (Ad-Durrul Mukhtaar, Vol. 3, Page 39. Ahsanul Fatwa, Vol. 4, Page 132.)
