Replying to the Azaan of Jumuah given before the Khutbah (sermon)

Q. Is it necessary to respond to the Azaan of the Khutbah of Jumuah?

What is the ruling of saying Ameen to the Duas of the Khutbah of Jumuah?

A. One can reply to the Azaan called out before the sermon/Khutbah of Jumuah is delivered in one’s heart, but not verbally on one’s tongue. The same ruling will also apply to saying Ameen to the Dua’s made during the sermon/Khutbah of Jumuah. (Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah 7/28-Kifayatul Mufti 3/220 – Aap ke masaail aur unka hal 4/140)
