Reciting "Was Sultaan zillullaah.." in the second khutba

Q: I do kutbah on Friday in a masjid. In the second kutbah I read "Was Sultaanu zillullaah man ahana sultaanalllah ahana hulla" should I leave this out or read this? Some people say you should not read because in our times kings are zaalims.


A: There is no harm in reading it because this does not refer to any particular king.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
