Moderation in Prayer

Jabir bin Samurah (radi Allahu anhu) reported: I used to perform prayer with the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and his Salat was of a moderate length and his Khutbah too was moderate in length.

[Sahih Muslim]


This Hadith tells us that Imam should neither lengthen the Salat nor give a long Khutbah in the congregational Salat because both of these things are not according to the practice of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam).

And Allah Knows Best!
