608 What is the proper manner of saying Azaan and who is eligible to say it?
One who gives the Azaan must be a Sahihul Aqeedah person who is in his proper sense of mind. If Azaan is given without Wudu, it will be complete, but it is not correct to do so. It is not permissible for a person who is in an impure state, an insane person, an intoxicated person or a Faasiq (open sinner) to call out the Azaan.

It is Makrooh-e-Tahreemi for women to give the Azaan or Iqaamah. Azaan must be given standing facing the direction of the Qibla, with the index fingers in the ears. The Azaan must be called out with a loud voice, pausing after each Takbeer.

The Azaan must be given outside the actual Masjid and not inside as this is Khilaaf-e-Sunnah (against the Sunnah) and Makrooh. This law even applies to the Azaan of the Jummah Khutba. Azaan should not be given in front of the Mimbar, but outside the main Masjid, but standing in line with the Khateeb. It is desirable to read Durood Shareef before and after the Azaan.
