Reciting The Second Jumuah Khutbah In The Tune Of Reciting Quraan

Question

I wanted to find out regarding the Jumuah khutbah the 2nd one some imaams recite it a tune like Reading Qur’aan is there any proof for it if their is could you please mention it and which is the preferred way to read it normally like the first khutbah or with a tune?

Answer

Both the first and the second Jumuah Khutbah should be recited normally, because Khutbah isتذكير   and وعظ (reminder and advice) which is generally not given in a melodious tone. Rasulullah too would give the Khutbah in this manner. He, Rasulullah  would recite the Khutbah in a high pitched voice. Khutbah is not merely recitation of the Qur’aan, rather it is advising as well as warning the people. 

In short, both the Khutbahs should be rendered in an earnest and loud-pitched voice as if the Khateeb is reminding and admonishing the audience about their duties towards their Creator.
