In this khutba, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani discusses how Allah (Most High) has commanded us to rush to the Friday prayer with a certain purpose, that purpose is the remembrance of Allah. The rush in here is the rushing of concern, not the physical rush.
He further goes into detail about what is meant by the ‘remembrance of Allah’; it entails two senses:
 The remembrance of Allah itself because the prayer IS an act of remembrance of Allah.
 That which reminds of you Allah, i.e. the khutba, that which reminds you of how to rectify your relationship with Allah (Most High).
The key to rectifying one’s relationship is the quality of taqwa, of having mindfulness of Allah.
