What is the ruling on supplicating while the Imam sits between the two sermons during the Friday prayer?
- Supplications between the two sermons is permissible
- The Prophet said that there is a time on Friday in which supplications are answered
Supplications while the Imam sits between the two sermons during the Friday prayers are permissible. This due to the probability that the time the preacher sits could be the time in which the Prophet [P.B.U.H] said supplications on Friday are accepted. Regarding the actual time itself the scholars mentioned some 43 different opinions as noted by Ibn Hajr in Fath al-Bari and al-Shawkani in Nayl al-Auwtar and this time falls under one of those 43. Thus, since it is a disputed matter, there is no problem in supplicating during this time.
Allah knows best,
