(و) يستحب أن (يجعل أصبعه في أذنيه) لقوله صلى الله عليه وسلم لبلال رضي الله عنه “اجعل أصبعيك في أذنيك فإنه أرفع لصوتك” (و يستحب أن يجعل أصبعيه) أي السبابتين و المراد أنملتهما وهو ليس بسنة أصلية إذ لم يكن في أذان الملك النازل من السماء و لم يشرع لأصل الإعلام بل للمبالغة فيه و إن جعل يديه على أذنيه فحن
