(Redirected to Khatib article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Khatib or khateeb (خطيب khaṭīb) is an Arabic term used to describe a person who delivers the sermon (khuṭbah), during the Friday prayer or Eid prayers.

The khatib is usually the Imam (prayer leader), but sometimes the two roles can be played by different people. There are no requirements of eligibility to become a khatib, although the person must be a male who has attained the age of puberty (11). It is also required that the khatib be in a state of physical purity (wudu) .

It is also used as a family name in most Muslim countries.
