Should he pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid or listen to the Adhaan?

Question

I entered the mosque and the adhaan was being given for the prayer. Should I pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid or wait until the adhaan finishes?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is better to respond to the adhaan first, then pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid, so as to combine two virtuous deeds. But the issue is flexible.

And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.
