The Sermon for Necessities
THE SERMON FOR NECESSITIES
About the Book:
This book is a complete translation of Khutbat-ul-Haajah (The Sermon for Necessities, which the Messenger of Allaah would teach his Companions). The source used for the translation was the 2001 Maktabah al-Maaarif Edition.
This book is one of the famous works of Imaam Al-Albaanee written about 50 years before his death and having a profound impact on the Muslim ummah. This was such that through his effort, this once-forgotten and almost-abandoned Sunnah was able to be revived.
Many people from the time of its publication to this very day have begun to implement this khutbah in their lectures, sermons, books, articles, and ceremonies. So may Allaah reward the author with the best of rewards.
We hope that this translation provides a glimpse into the wealth and ocean of knowledge of Imaam Al-Albaanee as well as give the readers a detailed understanding of the prescription of this blessed khutbah and some points of benefit related to it.
All footnotes are from the author unless otherwise noted. There is one large footnote at the end which was added by the original publishers, Maktabah al-Maaarif in their recent edition.
