Dear respected sisters in islam,
I almost went ballistic on ya’ll today. I know, I know, I’m fasting, I’m fasting, I’m fasting, I’m fasting, I’m fasting. But really, I can only say it so often.
Please, for the sake of Allah (swt) and all that is good, consider these following points:
- It is makhruh, if not outright haram, to talk and distract others during the khutbah.
- Remember when the imam says “straighten the lines, fill in the gaps?” That isn’t just for the menfolk. How hard is it to make a straight line and stand next to one another??? Do I really need to tell everyone to move forward, fill in the gaps and straighten their lines? I’m not even talking feet overlapping salafi style, just simply not having a 5 foot gaping hole in ever line.
Ya Allah, give me patiences.
your sister in islam,
