Reciting Qur’an while azaan in being called out

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. Our house is near the musjid. Whenever the adhan is called out, we can hear it clearly. After Maghrib I usually study/memorize qur’an so whenever the adhan is called should I stop and listen to the adhan until it is fnished or I can continue studying while the adhan is being called?

2. Is there a dua after adhan?



1. Both are permissible. It is better to listen to the azaan and answer it.

2. Yes. Refer to the following link:

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