This post has 37 views.

Question: a) Can a Mu’takif give Azaan in the Sahan of the Masjid.

  1. b) Can a Mu’takif go outside the Masjid area(e.g. wudhu khana) to wash his

hands before or after partaking his meals.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum Wa-Rahmatullāhi Wa-Barakātuh.

  1. Yes, a Mu’takif can give Azaan in the Sahan. [i]
  2. No, he cannot go out only for washing his hands. He can do it while he goes for wudhu or he can wash his hands using a container in the Masjid area itself.[ii]

Note: In some Masaajid, a provision for a small wash basin is made in the Masjid area whereby the Mu’takifeen can easily wash their hands without going out of the Masjid.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
