Reward of Dua after the Adhan (Call to Prayer)

Prophet intercession on the Day of Judgment As in hadith Prophet(ﷺ) said“Whoever after listening to the Adhan says, ‘Allahumma Rabba hadhihi-dda` watit-tammah, was-salatil qa’imah, ati Muhammadan al-wasilata wal-fadilah, wa b’ath-hu maqaman mahmudan-il-ladhi wa’adtahu’ then my intercession for him will be allowed on the Day of Resurrection.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari]

The history of Adhan (Call to Prayer)

When the Muslims arrived at Medina, they used to assemble for the prayer and used to guess the time for it. During those days, had not introduced the practice of Adhan for the prayers yet. Once they discussed this problem regarding the call for prayer. Some people suggested the use of a bell-like the Christians, others proposed a trumpet-like the horn used by the Jews, but ‘Umar was the first to suggest that a man should call (the people) for the prayer; so Allah’s Apostle ordered Bilal to get up and pronounce the Adhan for prayers.

What to say on hearing the Adhan ?

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whenever you hear the Adhan, say what the Mu’adh-dhin is saying.

  • repeat every line silently after the Mu’adh-dhin, but when he says “Hayya’ ala-Salah” and “Hayya ‘ala-l-Falah“, Then you will say, “La hawla Wala quwata illa billah.”
  • When the muezzin says, “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Then you will say, “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! .
  • When the muezzin says, “La ilaha illa Allah. Then you will say, “La ilaha illa Allah.

Dua before Adhan

Regarding the Dua before the Adhan, no Dua is recited before Adhan. If this time is reserved for dua, it is a reprehensible innovation. But if it happens by chance, there is no harm in it.
