Dua Lesson 11: During Adhaan

While the mu’a­dh-dhin is calling the Adhaan, repeat each sentence as he says it. After “Hayya ‘alas-Salaah” and “Hayya ‘alal-Falaah” say:

There is no power and no strength except in Allah.[1]


After “Qad qaamatis-Salaah” in the Iqaamah say:

May Allah establish it and keep it so forever.


After “A-Salaat Khayrum-minan-Nawm” during the Fajr Adhaan say:

You have spoken true and spoken well.


‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin al-‘Aas reported Allah’s Messenger () as saying: “When you hear the call of the Mu’adh-dhin, say what he says; then invoke a blessing upon me, for he who invokes a blessing upon me, Allah will invoke ten blessings upon him for that. Then beg waseelah from the Lord for me. It is a rank in Paradise which none but a servant amongst the servants of Allah is worthy to have and I hope that I am one such servant. He who begs waseelah for me, intercession will be assured for him. (Mishkaat)

(Here, waseelah means the highest rank in Paradise.)


Dua Lesson 12: After Adhaan

Oh Allah! Lord of this perfect call, and of the prayer to be offered presently. Grant to Muhammad the way of approach unto You, and also eminence and high rank, and raise him to the glorious position which You have promised him, and give us his intercession on the Day of Judgment. And You do not go back on Your promise.[2]


Anas (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger () as saying: “The du’aa between the dhaan and the Iqaamah is not turned down.”


‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a person said: O Allah’s Messenger (), verily those who call the Adhaan have excelled us in blessings. Thereupon, Allah’s Messenger () said: “You say those words as they say and when you come to the end, beg (of your Lord) and it will be given to you.” (Mishkaat)
