Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Something new has happened in the Masjid that we pray in whereby the Imam has stated giving a long lesson before the Adhan for Jumah is called. Then after Adhan has been called, the Imam started delivering the first Khutba for a period not exceeding 4 or 5 minutes, and then he delivered the second Khutaba for about 3 to 4 minutes. He based this on that Khutbah should not be longer than swalah. Please advise us and may Allah reward you. Is this permissible? If it is not permissible what should we do? Do we object or leave the Masjid and go to another Masjid which is nearer?
