Zikr/Dhikr During Azan


Hazrat, is it sinful for one to be continuing to recite Qur’an or engaging in dhikir whilst Adaan is being performed?

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

It is permissible to continue reading Quran or perform zikr while the azan is going on.  However, it is preferred and liked to stop, listen to the azan and respond to the azan.

واللہ اعلم بالصواب
