Hadith On Listening To Azan With Proper Etiquette

Think about it.

It’s crucial to treat others with respect. Be present in the situation and

don’t be a distraction. We can be distracted by our phones and pals if

we put them both on the quiet. Some people feel that talking during Azan

is a sin, although this is not supported by any authentic hadith.

It’s plain logic; going to the masjid is a spiritual experience,

and being loud is never appealing.

After The Muezzin, Repeat The Process

The greatest thing to do when listening to azan is to simply repeat after the muezzin.

“Whenever you hear the Azan, say what the Mu’adh-dhin is saying,”

Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) stated. In-book reference: Book 10, Hadith 10 (Sahih al-Bukhari 612).

“When the Mu’adh-dhin said, “Haiyi ‘alassala (come for the prayer),”

Hisham said, according to some of my companions. “La hawla Wala quwata illa billah

(There is no might or power except with Allah),” Muawiya said, adding,

“We heard your Prophet say the same.”

In-book reference: Book 10, Hadith 11 (Sahih al-Bukhari 613).

“When you hear the Mu’adhin call for prayer, repeat his words and

then ask Allah’s blessings on me, since Allah will reward you with

ten blessings for asking Allah’s blessings on me once.”

(Source: Muslim, The Book of Prayer, Hadith 384)
