Duration of Friday sermon.


How much is an ideal duration for Friday sermon.If it is more then the set time what is the solution?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your question

According to the office of Sayyid Siatani (d), there is no “set time” per se, however, in  a common view it should be aorund 40 mins to an hour max (both sermons together after Adhan)  so that the time of Salah isn’t missed. If it really exceeds and the time of Friday prayers passes then one should pray Dhuhr Salat as well.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
