Question:   Can the response of the Adhan be delayed ?

Answer :  The sunna is to give the response to the adhan as the muezzin says the adhan, this should be our practice under normal circumstances. When busy, one is permitted to reply all at once after the adhan is given, as long as there wasn’t an undue delay, as understood from the major texts of the Hanafi school. [ Radd al-Muhtar]

And Allah alone gives success.
