Duas Prophet Muhammad used to recite when he heard the Adhaan

The Adhaan is the call to prayer by the Imam from the mosque five times a day. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to recite a few invocations when he heard the Adhaan. Here they are…

“O Allah, You are safe, and from You we receive safety. You are Blessed, Lofty and Dignified”

From the following dua’s either recite all of them or any one individually:

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٍ

“Besides Allah, there is no one worthy of worship, He is all by Himself and has no partner. His is the Kingdom, to Him is all praise and He has control over everything” Bukhari, Muslim

اللَّهُمَّ لَا مَانِعَ لَمَا أَعْطَيْتَ وَلَا مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ وَلَا يَنْفَعُ ذَا الْجَدِّ مِنْكَ الْجَدُّ

“O Allah, no one can stop what You give and no one can give what You stop and the wealth of the wealthy cannot prevent Your punishment” Mishkat

Then recite Astaghfirullah thrice and recite the following:

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ السَّلَامُ وَمِنْكَ السَّلَامُ تَبَارَكْتَ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ

At the end of the Athaan, the Prophet used to recite Durood then say:

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدَاً الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامَاً مَحْمُودَاً الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ إِنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ

“O Allah, the Lord of this total call (invitation, proclamation) and the Lord of the Salat to begin, grant Muhammad ‘intercession’ ( a status) and grant him superiority and let him reach MooqameMahmood which You have promised, for definitely You do not go back on Your promises.“Mishkat

أَقَامَهَا اللَّهُ وَأَدَامَهَا

“Allah keep (Salaat) perpetual.” Mishkat


After the obligatory Salaat recite the following while rubbing the right hand on the forehead:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الرَّحْمَنُ الرَّحِيمُ اللَّهُمَّ أَذْهِبْ عَنِّي الْهَمَّ وَالْحَزَنَ

“In the name of Allah, (I have completed the Salaat) who is the only one worthy of worship and who is the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious. O Allah remove from me all worries and sorrows” Hisnul Hasin

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْجُبْنِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْبُخْلِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الدُّنْيَا وَعَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ

“O Allah, I seek refuge from cowardice, miserliness and childlessness in old age, from the trials of this world and punishment of the grave” Bukhari

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْكُفْرِ وَالْفَقْرِ وَعَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ

“O Allah, I seek refuge in You from Kufr, poverty and the punishment of the grave” HisnulHasin

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَفْتُ وَمَا أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ بِهِ مِنِّي أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ لَا إِلَهَ إلِاَّ أَنْتَ

“O Allah, forgive my past and future sins and those sins which took place knowingly or unknowngly and forgive me for exceeding the limits and those that You know more than me. You are the beginning and the end and besides You there is no one else worthy of worship” Abu Dawood

اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ

“O Allah, help me so that I can make your Dhikr, glorify You and worship You properly” Abu Dawood

“Uqba bin Amr (R.A.) states that Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) ordered him to recite the Muwoozhita (i.e. the four Quls) after every fard Salaat.” Mishkat
