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


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?


Praise be to Allah.

Praise be to Allaah.

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.
