Upon Entering the Mosque Pray Two Rak’ahs When the Adhaan is Being Called or Wait Till the Muadhin Finishes?

February 17, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “If I enter a mosque and the muadhin is making the call to prayer do I have to follow the muadhin [i.e., repeat what he is saying after him] or should I perform the [two rak’ahs which have to be performed upon entering the mosque which are called] tahaiyyatul-Masjid?

So he replied, “Apart from the second adhaan of the [day of] Jumu’ah , when a person enters [the mosque] and the muadhin is making the call to prayer he should answer the muadhin [i.e., repeat after him as is reported in the Sunnah] and then when he finishes he can perform the [two rak’ahs of] tahaiyyatul-Masjid.

As for the second adhaan on Friday then he does not follow the muadhin but prays the [two rak’ahs of] tahaiyyatul-Masjid so that he can finish and be free to listen to the sermon, because listening to the sermon is obligatory and answering [i.e., repeating after] the muadhin is a sunnah.”
