Reciting Tawwuz in the khutbah before reciting an aayah of the Qur'an

Q: When reading the Ayat of the Quran in Jummah Khutbah, is it compolsary and sunnah to read Taawwuz before reading the Quranic Ayah or not?


A: We have not come across any Hadith which states that Ta'awudh should be recited in the khutbah before reciting the aayat of the Quraan.

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