Khatib

In Islam, a khatib or khateeb (Arabic خطيب khaṭīb) is a person who delivers the sermon (khuṭbah) (literally "narration"), during the Friday prayer and Eid prayers.[1]

The khatib is usually the Imam (prayer leader), but the two roles can be played by different people. There are no requirements of eligibility to become a khatib, although the person must be a male who has attained the age of puberty. It is also required that the khatib be in a state of physical purity (wuḍūʼ).
