The holy Prophet Mohammad (SalallaAllahu Alehi Wasallam) said, stop doing everything during the Azan even reading the Quran, (and repeat the Azaan with the Moazzin.) The person who talks during the Azaan will not be able to say the Kalma-e-shahadat on his/her death bed.
Is this correct?
A.The narration stating that one who speaks during the Adhaan will not be able to recite the Kalimah at the time of death is a fabrication, as mentioned in Kashful-Khifaa and San’aani.
However, in spite of the narration being a fabrication, it is still necessary and highly emphasized that one should stop all work and listen to the Adhaan as well as reply to its wordings.
