Prophet's Khutbah

It was the habit of The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that once the people had gathered, he used to enter the masjid and make salaam to all those present. Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) used to call out the azhan. On the completion of the azhan, The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to immediately stand up and deliver his khutbah. Until the mimbar was not constructed, he used to take support from a staff. Occasionally, he used to place the staff against a pillar which was near the mihrab from where he used to deliver his khutbah, and then lean against it. After the construction of the mimbar, there is no evidence that he used to take support from a staff. 

He used to deliver two khutbahs and sit down for a little while in-between the two khutbahs. When sitting down, he did not engage in any conversation nor did he make any overt du’a. On completing the second khutbah, Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) used to call out the iqamah and The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to commence the salah.

While delivering the khutbah, The Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) voice used to get loud and his blessed eyes used to get red. It is mentioned in Sahih Muslim that when The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to deliver the khutbah his condition used to be as if he is warning the people of an invasion of an enemy that is very nearby. In most of the khutbahs he used to say: "Qiyaamah and I have been sent just as these two fingers are!" The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to recite Surah Qaaf very regularly in his khutbahs. At times he used to recite Surah al-Asr
