Question # 13-22: Tahiyyatul-Masjid while Athan


Which is preferable, to offer Tahiyyatul-Masjid while the Mu’aththin is making the Athan, or after he has finished it?


In the name of Allah the Most Merciful and Kind.

If one entered the mosque while the Athan is being called, it is better for him to answer the Mu’aththin and after he has finished, perform Tahiyyatul-Masjid, except for the second Athan of the Friday prayer – in this case, it is better to pray while the Athan is being called, so that it is completed before the Imam begins the Khutbah and he may then be silent and listen to the Khutbah.

Fatawa: Sheick Ibn Jibreen
