The Friday khutbas, however, have become increasingly political in recent years. In several Muslim countries, such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the content of the Friday khutbas is regulated by the government.

The khutba delivered on Arafat examines the political, economic and social affairs of the entire Islamic world. The topic for the khutba delivered during the Hajj of January, 2006, was the sufferings of Muslims all over the world.
