Q: Can you please tell me when a baby is born, can you give the Azaan from a recorded video or a live video call or does it have to be in person?


A: Do it just as an azaan is called out at the musjid, not from a video or from any gadget. It has to be done personally.

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