Answering and replying to the second Azan of Jummah

CategoriesSalaah [796]

Should we answer the second adhan (i.e. repeat its words) of the Friday prayers, even though the imam has entered and this is a time to be quiet? Also, should we say the dua of adhan after the second adhan

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


One can reply to the second Azan of the Jummah prayer in his heart, but not verbally on the tongue. The same ruling will also apply to the dua after the second Azan of Jummah. (Fatawa Mahmoodiyah p.28 v.7 & Kifayatul Mufti p.220 v.3)
