The weekly Friday congregational prayer (Jumuah) for Muslims takes place on Fridays just after noon, which features a sermon by the Imam (spiritual leader of congregation).

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) encourages Imams delivering sermons to tackle a wide variety of topics affecting Muslim communities and British society.

The following are Template Friday Sermons (Khutbahs) which have been drafted and used by MCB members and friends.
