Honorable Shaykh, I have 2 questions:
1) How can a Muslim be named Rashid (e.g. Maulana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi) when it is among the names of Allah?
2) I hear many a’imma (some of educated under Dars-e-nizami curriculum) and others of all schools of thought giving the Friday sermon in English. However, reading Mufti Taqi Usmani’s “Language of the Khutbah”, I read to the contrary. Please explain.
May Allah reward you for spending this time for me.
1) Rashid means rightly guided, upon the straight path. Quraan says
When the learned Scholars say something is o.k, we should have confidence on them.
2) I can’t explain. They should do Khutba in Arabic.
