Pauses in azan

Q:

Shaykh i have a question about azan that how many pauses should we take for breathing in and out in azan. Sunnah way of giving azan

A:

The Prophet is reported to have said, “when you call adhan, do so with a slow pace; however, while saying the iqamah do so quickly.”  (Abu Dawud)

When the pious caliph Umar asked the Mu’adhin to call adhan in Bayt al-Maqdis, he instructed him: “Make sure to call Adhan a slow pace, but when you say the iqamah do so with a fast pace.”

Besides the above, a Mu’adhin should be chosen for his musical voice, and that the adhan should be said melodiously. These are the most important rules for the adhan. There is no need for us to make it more rigid.

Finally, let me say: If you wish to master the art of adhan, you should learn it from a trained Mu’adhin. If you cannot find one, you can listen to the adhan recordings from the Haram of Makkah or Madinah or any other reputable mosques.

Almighty Allah knows best.
