What is the dua after Azan/Adhan?

When Muaddin (a person who calls for Adhan) calls Azan, there are 4 Sunnahs to be followed including the Dua after Adhan.

Answering Adhan

There is a Hadith where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ has explained the method to answer Adhan. – Sahih Muslim 385

  • Answer “الله اكبر الله اكبر” by saying “الله اكبر الله اكبر“.
  • respond “اشهد ان لا اله الا الله” by saying “اشهد ان لا اله الا الله“.
  • reply “اشهد ان محمدا رسول الله” by saying “اشهد ان محمدا رسول الله.
  • Answer “حي على الصلاة” by saying “لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ“.
  • respond “حي على الفلاح” by saying “لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ“.
  • reply “الله اكبر الله اكبر” by saying “الله اكبر الله اكبر“.

During Fajr Azan when Muaddin says, “الصلاة خير من النوم” answer it with “الصلاة خير من النوم“.

How to answer adhan

Invoke blessings on Prophet Muhammad

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ when you hear Muaddin, repeat what he says, then invoke a blessing on me, for everyone who invokes a blessing on me will receive ten blessings from Allah. – Sahih Muslim 384

Therefore before reciting the Dua for Azan, one should recite Durood Ibrahimi.

  • اللهم صــل علٰی محمد و علٰی آل محمد كما صليت علٰی إبراهيم و علٰی آل إبراهيم انك حميد مجيد
  • اللهم بارك علٰی محمد و علٰی آل محمد كما بار كت علٰی إبراهيم و علٰی آل إبراهيم انك حميد مجيد
