Is it obligatory to say “al-Salâh khayr min al-nawm” in the morning adhân?

Answered by

Sheikh `Abd al-Rahmân al-`Ajlân, lecturer at the Grand Mosque in Mecca

Saying “al-Salâh khayr min al-nawm” after “Hayyâ `alâ al-falâh” in the morning adhân is sunnah.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) told the Companion Abu Mahzûrah: “In the morning prayer, say “al-Salâh khayr min al-nawm” twice.”

This practice is referred to as tathwîb.
