Using ChatGPT to generate sermons and khutbahs

Fatwaa ID: 1545

Can a Khatib/Imam use ChatGPT as a tool to generate Khutbah/Sermon
For Jummah Prayers ?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The purpose of a khutbah or sermon is not to impress people or to just give one. It is supposed to make an affect on the audience in terms of spirituality and knowledge. When the sermon comes from the heart, it has a greater impact on the listeners.

Nevertheless, it is permissible to use ChatGPT as a tool to generate sermons. However, the content must be revised to ensure correctness. We however advise against using AI to generate sermons. Be authentic. Be real. Your true efforts will be much better and more rewarding.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
