In special situations like Corona — when people cannot get out of the house or if the common people are afraid of facing great loss and danger when they go out, then perform ‘Sallu fi Buutikum’ or ‘As-Salatu Fir-Rihal’ i.e. prayers at home, during Azan There is an opportunity in Islamic law to attach such words. In this case, there are three types of narrations in the hadith:
One. Called after Azan. As found in the narration of Abdullah bin Omar. (Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1832)
Two. Saying instead of ‘Haiya Alas-Salah’ in Azan. As found in the narration of Abdullah bin Abbas. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 637)
Three. There is also evidence that one of the Companions added such a word after ‘Haiya Alas-Salah’. (Ithaful Khair, Hadith: 905)
The muezzin can follow any one of the three methods. However, according to Islamic jurists, it is better to say it as a warning after the call to prayer. If the muezzin is in the city or settlement, he will say ‘Sallu fi Buutikum’ and if he is outside, he will say ‘As-Salatu fi Rihalikum’. According to the narration of Abdullah bin Omar, the muezzin will utter this sentence twice. When the muezzin speaks of praying at home, the audience will respond with ‘La hawla wala quwata illa billah’.
