[Q 121] Ruling on Non-Sunni Giving the Adhan in Sunni Mosque


What is the ruling of a person who has corrupt belief giving the Adhan in a Sunni Masjid?


The legal ruling is that the call to prayer (Adhan) should be given by a person who is Sunni, has the correct belief, and is pious.

Therefore, if a person with a corrupt belief calls the Athan and their disbelief reaches the level of kufr, the Adhan will not be valid, and if it does not reach that level, it will be valid but it is better to repeat it unless there is no fear of discord(Fitnah).
