Speaking at the time of azaan

Q: What are the general reprimands and warnings in the Ahaadith against general worldly chat whilst the Adhan is going on?


A: The Azaan is among the salient symbols of Islam. When Azaan holds holds such great importance in Deen, then we should show respect and appreciation to Allah Ta’ala by replying to the Azaan and not being engaged in any worldly talk at that time. The Fuqaha have written that it is makrooh to engage in worldly talk at the time of Azaan.  

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
