Supplications upon hearing the Athan (call to prayer)

Supplications related to the adhaan [the call to prayer]:

Repeat what the Mu’aththin says, except for when he says:

“حَيَّ عَلَى الصَّلاَةِ وَحَيَّ عَلَى الْفَلَاحِ”

‘come to prayer’ or ‘come to success’ Instead, one should say:

“لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ”

There is no might and no power except by Allah. (Reference: Al-Bukhari)

“وَأَنَا أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ، رَضِيتُ بِاللهِ رَبَّاً وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رَسُولاً وَبِالإِْسلاَمِ دِيناً”

I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my religion. (Reference: Muslim)

‘One should then send prayers on the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) after answering the call of the mu.adhdhin’.

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ، وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ، آتِ مُحَمَّدا نلْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ، وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَاماً مَحْمُودا نلَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ، إَنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ

‘O Allaah, Owner of this perfect call and Owner of this prayer to be performed, bestow upon Muhammad al-waseelah and al-fadheelah and send him upon a praised platform which You have promised him. [Verily, You never fail in Your promise].’ (Reference: Al-Bukhari)

One should also supplicate for himself during the time between the adhaan and the iqaamah, as supplication (Invocation) at such time is not rejected.
