azan at homes during natural calamity


Is there any reference about saying azaan at homes during a calamity or natural disaster to have the disaster pass ?


Walaykum Assalaam

Yes there are. A narration you can find here: Wasail Al Shia – and the narration

This book is Wasail Al Shia – and the narration says the following:

محمد بن يعقوب، عن الحسين بن محمد، عن عبد الله بن عامر، عن علي بن مهزيار، عن محمد بن راشد، عن هشام بن إبراهيم أنه شكا إليه أبي الحسن الرضا (عليه السلام) سقمه، وأنه لا يولد له ولد (1) فأمره أن يرفع صوته بالأذان في منزله قال ففعلت، فأذهب الله عني سقمي وكثر ولدي.
وعن محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن العباس بن معروف، عن علي بن مهزيار، مثله (2).
ورواه الصدوق باسناده عن هشام بن إبراهيم (3)

The narration suggests that Imam Redha peace be upon him was asked what to do in regards to having illness and no children, and the advice was to recite adhan loudly in his house. He did, and the illness was lifted by Allah SWT and many children were born to him.

The next naration in the same chapter says the following: أذن في بيتك فإنه يطرد الشيطان
This explains that reciting adhan loudly in your house evictssatan from it.

Inshallah this helps.
