Book Eleven – Call to Prayer (Adhan)


Hadith Number 577.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The people mentioned the fire and the bell (they suggested those as signals to indicate the starting of prayers), and by that they mentioned the Jews and the Christians. Then Bilal (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was ordered to pronounce Adhan for the prayer by saying its wordings twice, and for the Iqama (the call for the actual standing for the prayers in rows) by saying its wordings once. (Iqama is pronounced when the people are ready for the prayer).


Hadith Number 578.

Narrated by Ibn ‘Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): When the Muslims arrived at Medina, they used to assemble for the prayer, and used to guess the time for it. During those days, the practice of Adhan for the prayers had not been introduced yet. Once they discussed this problem regarding the call for prayer. Some people suggested the use of a bell like the Christians, others proposed a trumpet like the horn used by the Jews, but 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was the first to suggest that a man should call (the people) for the prayer; so Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered Bilal (Radhi Allahu Anhu) to get up and pronounce the Adhan for prayers.


Hadith Number 579.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Bilal (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was ordered to repeat the wording of the Adhan for prayers twice, and to pronounce the wording of the Iqamas once except "Qad-qamat-is-Salat".


Hadith Number 580.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): When the number of Muslims increased they discussed the question as to how to know the time for the prayer by some familiar means. Some suggested that a fire be lit (at the time of the prayer) and others put forward the proposal to ring the bell. Bilal (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was ordered to pronounce the wording of Adhan twice and of the Iqama once only.


Hadith Number 581.

Narrated by Abu Qilaba: Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "Bilal was ordered to pronounce the wording of Adhan twice and of Iqama once only." The sub narrator Isma'li said, "I mentioned that to Aiyub and he added (to that), "Except Iqama (i.e. Qad-Qamatis-Salat which should be said twice)."


Hadith Number 582.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "When the Adhan is pronounced Satan takes to his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight in order not to hear the Adhan. When the Adhan is completed he comes back and again takes to his heels when the Iqama is pronounced and after its completion he returns again till he whispers into the heart of the person (to divert his attention from his prayer) and makes him remember things which he does not recall to his mind before the prayer and that causes him to forget how much he has prayed."


Hadith Number 583.

Narrated by 'Abdul Rahman: Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu) told my father, "I see you liking sheep and the wilderness. So whenever you are with your sheep or in the wilderness and you want to pronounce Adhan for the prayer raise your voice in doing so, for whoever hears the Adhan, whether a human being, a jinn or any other creature, will be a witness for you on the Day of Resurrection." Abu Said added, "I heard it (this narration) from Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)."


Hadith Number 584.

Narrated by Humaid: Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "Whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went out with us to fight (in Allah's cause) against any nation, he never allowed us to attack till morning and he would wait and see: if he heard Adhan he would postpone the attack and if he did not hear Adhan he would attack them." Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) added, "We reached Khaibar at night and in the morning when he did not hear the Adhan for the prayer, he (the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) rode and I rode behind Abi Talha and my foot was touching that of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).

The inhabitants of Khaibar came out with their baskets and spades and when they saw the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) they shouted 'Muhammad! By Allah, Muhammad and his army.' When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saw them, he said, "Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is ruined. Whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning of those who have been warned."


Hadith Number 585.

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whenever you hear the Adhan, say what the Mu'adhdhin is saying.


Hadith Number 586.

Narrated by 'Isa bin Talha: That he had heard Muawiya repeating the words of Adhan up to "Wa ash-hadu Anna Muhammadan Rasulul-lah (and I testify that Muhammad is Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam).)"


Hadith Number 587.

Narrated by Yahya as above (586) and added : "Some of my companions told me that Hisham had said, "When the Mu'adhdhin said, "Haiya alas-sala(t) (come for the prayer)." Muawiya said, "La hawla wala quwata illa billah (There is neither might nor any power except with Allah)" and added, "We heard your Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying the same."


Hadith Number 588.

Narrated by Jabir bin 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whoever after listening to the Adhan says, 'Allahumma Rabba hadhihi-d-da' watit-tammati was-salatil qa'imati, ati Muhammadan al-wasilata wal-fadilata, wab' athhu maqaman mahmudan-il-ladhi wa' adtahu (O Allah! Lord of this perfect call (of not ascribing partners to You) and of the regular prayer which is going to be established! Kindly give Muhammad the right of intercession and superiority and send him (on the Day of Judgment) to the best and the highest place in Paradise which You promised him)', then intercession for me will be permitted for him on the Day of Resurrection").

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 589.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah: Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "If the people knew the reward for pronouncing the Adhan and for standing in the first row (in congregational prayers) and found no other way to get that except by drawing lots they would draw lots, and if they knew the reward of the Dhuhr prayer (in the early moments of its stated time) they would race for it (go early) and if they knew the reward of 'Isha' and Fajr (morning) prayers in congregation, they would come to offer them even if they had to crawl."


Hadith Number 590.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Al-Harith (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once on a rainy muddy day, Ibn ‘Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) delivered a sermon in our presence and when the Mu'adhdhin pronounced the Adhan and said, "Haiya ala-s-salah (come for the prayer)" Ibn ‘Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) ordered him to say 'Pray at your homes.' The people began to look at each other (surprisingly). Ibn ‘Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said. "It was done by one who was much better than I (i.e. the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) or his Mu'adhdhin), and it is a license.'


Hadith Number 591.

Narrated by Salim bin Abdullah : My father said that Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Bilal pronounces 'Adhan at night, so keep on eating and drinking (Suhur) till Ibn Um Maktum pronounces Adhan." Salim added, "He was a blind man who would not pronounce the Adhan unless he was told that the day had dawned."


Hadith Number 592.

Narrated by Hafsa (Radhi Allahu Anhuna): When the Muadhdhin pronounced the Adhan for Fajr prayer and the dawn became evident the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) ordered a two Rakat light prayer (Sunna) before the Iqama of the compulsory (congregational) prayer.


Hadith Number 593.

Narrated by ‘Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) : The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to offer two light Rakat between the Adhan and the Iqama of the Fajr prayer.


Hadith Number 594.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Bilal pronounces the Adhan at night, so keep on eating and drinking (Suhur) till Ibn Um Maktum pronounces the Adhan."


Hadith Number 595.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The Adhan pronounced by Bilal should not stop you from taking Suhur, for he pronounces the Adhan at night, so that the one offering the late night prayer (Tahajjud) from among you might hurry up and the sleeping from among you might wake up. It does not mean that dawn or morning has started." Then he (the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) pointed with his fingers and raised them up (towards the sky) and then lowered them (towards the earth) like this (Ibn Mas'ud imitated the gesture of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)). Az-Zuhri gestured with his two index fingers which he put on each other and then stretched them to the right and left. These gestures illustrate the way real dawn appears. It spreads left and right horizontally. The dawn that appears in the high sky and lowers down is not the real dawn).


Hadith Number 596.

Narrated by ‘Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) : The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Bilal pronounces the Adhan at night, so eat and drink (Suhur) till Ibn Um Maktum pronounces the Adhan."


Hadith Number 597.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Mughaffal Al-Muzani : Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said thrice, "There is a prayer between the two Adhans (Adhan and Iqama)," and added, "For the one who wants to pray."


Hadith Number 598.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): "When the Mu'adhdhin pronounced the Adhan, some of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would proceed to the pillars of the mosque (for the prayer) till the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) arrived and in this way they used to pray two Rakat before the Maghrib prayer. There used to be a little time between the Adhan and the Iqama." Shu'ba said, "There used to be a very short interval between the two (Adhan and Iqama)."


Hadith Number 599.

Narrated by ‘Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to pray two light Rakat before the morning (compulsory) prayer after the day dawned and the Mu'adhdhin had finished his Adhan. He then would lie on his right side till the Mu'adhdhin came to pronounce the Iqama.


Hadith Number 600.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Mughaffal (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "There is a prayer between the two Adhans (Adhan and Iqama), there is a prayer between the two Adhans." And then while saying it the third time he added, "For the one who wants to (pray)."


Hadith Number 601.

Narrated by Malik bin Huwairth (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) with some men from my tribe and stayed with him for twenty nights. He was kind and merciful to us. When he realized our longing for our families, he said to us, "Go back and stay with your families and teach them the religion, and offer the prayer and one of you should pronounce the Adhan for the prayer when its time is due and the oldest one amongst you should lead the prayer."


Hadith Number 602.

Narrated by Abu Dhar (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We were in the company of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on a journey and the Mu'adhdhin wanted to pronounce the Adhan for the (Zuhr) prayer. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him, "Let it become cooler." Then he again wanted to pronounce the Adhan but the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam); said to him, "Let it become cooler." The Mu'adh-dhin again wanted to pronounce the Adhan for the prayer but the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Let it become cooler," till the shadows of the hillocks become equal to their sizes. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) added, "The severity of the heat is from the raging of Hell."


Hadith Number 603.

Narrated by Malik bin Huwairth (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Two men came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) with the intention of a journey. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "When (both of) you set out, pronounce Adhan and then Iqama and the oldest of you should lead the prayer."

Then he asked us to go back to our families and stay with them and teach them (the religion) and to order them to do good things. He also mentioned some other things which I have (remembered or) forgotten.

Hadith Number 606.

Narrated by 'Aun bin Abi Juhaifa : My father said, "I saw Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) at a place called Al-Abtah.

Hadith Number 612.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went out (of the mosque) when the Iqama had been pronounced and the rows straightened. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) stood at his Musalla (praying place) and we waited for the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to begin the prayer with Takbir. He left and asked us to remain in our places. We kept on standing till the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) returned and the water was trickling from his head for he had taken a bath (of Janaba).


Hadith Number 613.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Once iqama was pronounced and the people had straightened the rows, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went forward (to lead the prayer) but he was Junub, so he said, "Remain in your places."

By Allah, I could not pray (the 'Asr) till the sun had set." 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) told this to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) at the time when a fasting person had done Iftar (taken his meals).

Hadith Number 620.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The reward of the prayer offered by a person in congregation is twenty five times greater than that of the prayer offered in one's house or in the market (alone). And this is because if he performs ablution and does it perfectly and then proceeds to the mosque with the sole intention of praying, then for every step he takes towards the mosque, he is upgraded one degree in reward and his one sin is taken off (crossed out) from his accounts (of deeds). When he offers his prayer, the angels keep on asking Allah's Blessings and Allah's forgiveness for him as long as he is (staying) at his Musalla. They say, 'O Allah! Bestow Your blessings upon him, be Merciful and kind to him.' And one is regarded in prayer as long as one is waiting for the prayer."


Hadith Number 621.

Narrated by Abu Salama bin 'Abdur Rahman: Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying, 'The reward of a prayer in congregation is twenty five times greater than that of a prayer offered by a person alone. The angels of the night and the angels of the day gather at the time of Fajr prayer.'" Abu Hurairah then added, [color=green]"Recite the Holy Book if you wish, for "Indeed, the recitation of the Qur'an in the early dawn (Fajr prayer) is ever witnessed." (Surah Al-Isra 17:18) [:color]

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The reward of the congregational prayer is twenty seven times greater (than that of the prayer offered by a person alone).


Hadith Number 622.

Narrated by Salim : I heard Um Ad-Darda' (Radhi Allahu Anha) saying, "Abu Ad-Darda' entered the house in an angry mood. I said to him. 'What makes you angry?' He replied, 'By Allah! I do not find the followers of Muhammad doing those good things (which they used to do before) except the offering of congregational prayer." (This happened in the last days of Abu Ad-Darda' (Radhi Allahu Anhu) during the rule of 'Uthman (Radhi Allahu Anhu)).


Hadith Number 623.

Narrated by Abu Musa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The people who get tremendous reward for the prayer are those who are farthest away (from the mosque) and then those who are next farthest and so on. Similarly one who waits to pray with the Imam has greater reward than one who prays and goes to bed."


Hadith Number 624.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "While a man was going on a way, he saw a thorny branch and removed it from the way and Allah became pleased by his action and forgave him for that." Then the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Five are martyrs: One who dies of plague, one who dies of an abdominal disease, one who dies of drowning, one who is buried alive (and) dies and one who is killed in Allah's cause." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) further said, "If the people knew the reward for pronouncing the Adhan and for standing in the first row (in the congregational prayer) and found no other way to get it except by drawing lots they would do so, and if they knew the reward of offering the Dhuhr prayer early (in its stated time), they would race for it and they knew the reward for 'Isha' and Fajr prayers in congregation, they would attend them even if they were to crawl."


Hadith Number 625.

Narrated by Humaid: Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, 'O Bani Salima! Don't you think that for every step of yours (that you take towards the mosque) there is a reward (while coming for prayer)?" Mujahid said: "Regarding Allah's Statement: "We record that which they have sent before (them), and their traces" (Surah Yasin 36:12). 'Their traces' means 'their steps.' " And Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said that the people of Bani Salima wanted to shift to a place near the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) but Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) disliked the idea of leaving their houses uninhabited and said, "Don't you think that you will get the reward for your footprints." Mujahid said, "Their foot prints mean their foot steps and their going on foot."


Hadith Number 626.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the 'Isha' prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to c awl." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) added, "Certainly I decided to order the Mu'adhdhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses."


Hadith Number 627.

Narrated by Malik bin Huwairith (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said (to two persons), "Whenever the prayer time becomes due, you should pronounce Adhan and then Iqama and the older of you should lead the prayer."


Hadith Number 628.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The angels keep on asking for Allah's Blessing and Forgiveness for anyone of you as long as he is at his Musalla (praying place) and does not do Hadath (passes wind). The angels say, 'O Allah! Forgive him and be Merciful to him.' Each one of you is in the prayer as long as he is waiting for the prayer and nothing but the prayer detains him from going to his family."


Hadith Number 629.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Allah will give shade, to seven, on the Day when there will be no shade but His. (These seven persons are) a just ruler, a youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allah (i.e. worships Allah sincerely from childhood), a man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. to pray the compulsory prayers in the mosque in congregation), two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's cause only, a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for illicit intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah, a man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity), and a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears."


Hadith Number 630.

Narrated by Humaid: Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was asked, "Did Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) wear a ring?" He said, "Yes. Once he delayed the 'Isha' prayer till mid-night and after the prayer, he faced us and said, 'The people prayed and have slept and you remained in prayer as long as you waited for it.' " Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu) added, "As if I were just now observing the glitter of his ring."

Hadith Number 631.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Allah will prepare for him who goes to the mosque (every) morning and in the afternoon (for the congregational prayer) an honorable place in Paradise with good hospitality for (what he has done) every morning and afternoon goings.


Hadith Number 632.

Narrated by Malik Ibn Buhaina (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) passed by a man praying two Rakat after the Iqama (had been pronounced). When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) completed the prayer, the people gathered around him (the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) or that man and Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him (protesting), Are there four Rakat in Fajr prayer? Are there four Rakat in Fajr prayer?"


Hadith Number 633.

Narrated by Al-Aswad: "We were with ‘Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) discusses the regularity of offering the prayer and dignifying it. She said, 'When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) fell sick with the fatal illness and when the time of prayer became due and Adhan was pronounced, he said, 'Tell Abu Bakr to lead the people in prayer.' He was told that Abu Bakr was a soft-hearted man and would not be able to lead the prayer in his place. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) gave the same order again but he was given the same reply. He gave the order for the third time and said, 'You (women) are the companions of Joseph. Tell Abu Bakr to lead the prayer.' So Abu Bakr came out to lead the prayer. In the meantime the condition of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) improved a bit and he came out with the help of two men one on each side. As if I was observing his legs dragging on the ground owing to the disease. Abu Bakr wanted to retreat but the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) beckoned him to remain at his place and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was brought till he sat beside Abu Bakr." Al-A'mash was asked, "Was the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) praying and Abu Bakr following him, and were the people following Abu Bakr in that prayer?" Al-A'mash replied in the affirmative with a nod of his head. Abu Muawiya said, "The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was sitting on the left side of Abu Bakr who was praying while standing."

Ibn ‘Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) said, "It seems that you thought ill of it but no doubt it was done by one who was better than I (i.e. the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)). It (the prayer) is a strict order and I disliked to bring you out."

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Tell Abu Bakr to lead the prayer." I said the same as before. He (repeated the same order and) on the third or the fourth time he said, "You are the companions of Joseph. Tell Abu Bakr to lead the prayer." So Abu Bakr led the prayer and meanwhile the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) felt better and came out with the help of two men; as if I see him just now dragging his feet on the ground. When Abu Bakr saw him, he tried to retreat but the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) beckoned him to carry on. Abu Bakr retreated a bit and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sat on his (left) side. Abu Bakr was repeating the Takbir (Allahu Akbar) of Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) for the people to hear.
