Calling out the azaan before salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I live in USA and the Masjids are too far from our houses. We don’t hear the sound of Azaan at home. We have an Azaan clock at home but at my workplace I don’t have an Azaan clock.

My question is that if we dont hear the Azaan and its the time of prayer, do we need to say Azaan before prayer? 


A: If the time of namaaz has entered you can call out the azaan. 

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