Reciting "Salloo fi buyootikum" in place of "Hayya alas Salaah" and Hayya alal Falaah"

Q: Nowadays, masaajid being closed, azaan is a bit modified. In place of Hayya alas Salaah, Hayya ala Falaah, it is said, Salloo fi buyutikim and salloo fi rihalikum. Is it permissible to change azaan and was it done in the era of Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum)? How should we reply to these words?

A: In the books of fiqh we have not come across that under these circumstances these statements should be included into the azaan.

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