Drinking Water & Using the Miswak During the Khutba – Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree
The noble Shaykh, Ubayd al-Jaabiree, may Allah preserve him, was asked: "Is it permissible to drink water or use the miswak during the Friday khutba ?" The Shaykh responded by saying: "If the khateeb is in need of water; if he is choking or experiencing dryness in his throat for instance, then there's no problem with this, in shaa Allah. In addition, it is recommended that he use the miswak during his departure toward the masjid or immediately prior to beginning the khutba. Even if he uses the miswak upon the minbar while the Adhaan is being called, there is no harm in that, in shaa Allah." Source: ar.miraath.net/fatwah/11382
