One Khutbah in Salaat-ul-Eid

My question today is about the Eid Salaat that was conducted at the Islamic Center in Fredericton, Canada.Apparently, after the salaat, there was only 1 khutbah. Will this salaat be valid? If not, what should the muqtadi do, since the imam was adamant that one khutbah is enough. [ Mohammad Nasir, Fredericton, NB, Canada]


Yes, Eid Salaat without one of the Khutbahs is valid. In fact, even if there is no Khutbah at all, Eid Salaat will be valid. However, it will be sinful for leaving out the Sunnah. (Shaami vol.1 pg.166; Tahtawi pg.528)
