Which adhan is given for a newborn baby?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
When a new born baby is born, which adhan is given? I.e, the Adhan for zuhr-isha, or the Fajr Adhan. Someone told me it should be Fajr adhan, however he couldnt recall where he read it.


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

The usual Adhaan should be recited.

Hadhrat Abu Raafe (Radhiallalhu Ta’ala Anhu) recounts an act of the Holy Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and describes thus;

“I witnessed the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) reciting the Adhaan (Call to prayer) to Hadhrat Hasan ibn Ali (Radhiallalhu Ta’ala Anhu) when his daughter Fatima (Radhiallalhu Ta’ala Anha) gave birth to him.” (Tirmidhi, Musnad Ahmad)

The Adhaan should be given in the right ear of the new born and Iqaamat in the left ear. (Shaami vol.1 pg.385; HM Saeed)

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
