O Shaikh is it from the Sunnah for the Mu'aththin to place his fingers in his ears when calling the Athaan?


Yes, it is from the Sunnah for the Mu’aththin to place his fingers in his ears when calling the Athaan. He would place either his index or middle finger in his ears or utilize them both while calling the Athaan. It is also from the Sunnah for the Mu’aththin to turn his face from side to side during the Athaan.
