Should We Do Dhikr and Duʿāʾ between the Two Friday Sermons?
Shaikh Muḥammad Naṣir Al-Dīn Al-Albānī, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:
…Are dhikr [mentioning and remembering Allah], duʿāʾ [asking of Allāh], and istighfār [seeking His forgiveness] legislated [in Islam] for the one coming to prayer on Friday during the time the preacher sits down between the two sermons?
The answer: dhikr, duʿāʾ, and istighfār are not legislated [in Islam] during the time the preacher sits down; only listening [is legislated], and that’s all. [That’s] because this sitting is a brief sitting during which the preacher takes a breath [before] he starts the second sermon. If the door to dhikr were to be opened [at this time], it would likely start to take a longer [time] after that, and [attendees] would then leave off listening to the dhikr [the sermon itself] that is a requirement upon [them] to listen to.
