Listening to a recording of azaan while doing work

Q: Can I listen to a recording of the azaan while doing work, since I will not be paying full attention. Not the live azan but a recording.

A: Anything that is related to deen should be shown a great level of respect. Hence, if you are using this as an entertainment and passtime, then it is not in keeping to the respect of the words of azaan, even though it is a recorded azaan.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
