    Question: (1) If a person is near three surrounding masjids and he is hearing three azans from all the three masjids in a gap of 5 minutes, whether he has to give reply and recite dua for all the three azans or one reply and dua is enough. (2) There is a system in our city, if a person falls sick elders are reciting some Quran surah for example Al-Rahman and putting one knot in the black thick thread and again reciting the same surah and putting another knot in the said thread and approximately 10 to 15 knots are tied in the black thread and tied in the neck of the sick person for few days. Is it correct?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1105/1105/M=08/1435) (1) In the question mentioned above, it is sufficient to reply the azan heard first and to read the dua. (2) There is nothing objectionable in the said amal for treating a sick person; hence it is right. It should be believed that only Allah cures and the treatment is only a source.
