Athan (Azan)- Call to Prayer

azan_web_big1

As salam alekum wa rehmatillahi wa barkatahu!

(May peace, blessings, and mercy of Allah (swt) be upon all of you)

       Athan (Azan) means call to Prayer. 

It is better to listen to the Azan with understanding, and we can enjoy it while we make ourselves more knowledgeable.

 

 

Azan – call to prayer

 

Allah hu Akbar, Allah hu Akbar

Allah is Great, Allah is Great

 

Ashadu-Allah-Illaha Illallah, Ashadu- Allah-Illaha Illallah

I bear witness that there is no god, but Allah. I bear witness that there is no god, but Allah

 

Wa Ashadu-ana Mohammadur-rasullallah, Wa Ashadu-ana Mohammadur-rasullallah

I bear witness that Mohammad (PBUH) is the Messenger of Allah. I bear witness that Mohammad (PBUH) is the Messenger of Allah

 

Haiya-Alas-Salah, Haiya-Alas-Salah

Come to prayer. Come to prayer

 

Haiya-Alall-Falah, Haiya-Alall-Falah

Come to Sucess. Come to Sucess

 

Allah hu Akbar, Allah hu Akbar

Allah is Great, Allah is Great

 

La-Illaha Illallah

There is no god, but Allah.

 

 

Book 4, Number 0747:

‘Abdullah b. Amr b. al-As reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: When you hear the Mu’adhdhin, repeat what he says, then invoke a blessing on me, for everyone who invokes a blessing on me will receive ten blessings from Allah; then beg from Allah al-Wasila for me, which is a rank in Paradise fitting for only one of Allah’s servants, and I hope that I may be that one. If anyone who asks that I be given the Wasila, he will be assured of my intercession.

 

Book 4, Number 0748:

‘Umar b. al-Khattab reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When the Mu’adhdhin says: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, and one of you should make this response: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; (and when the Mu’adhdhin) says: I testify that there is no god but Allah, one should respond: I testify that there is no god but Allah, and when he says: I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, one should make a response: I testify that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger. When he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: Come to prayer, one should make a response: There is no might and no power except with Allah. When he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: Come to salvation, one should respond: There is no might and no power except with Allah, and when he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, then make a response: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. When he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: There is no god but Allah, and he who makes a response from the heart: There is no god but Allah, he will enter Paradise

 

          When there is only a single star left in the sky. At that very moment, the path of forgiveness will close. The writing in the Quran will vanish. The sun will lower itself with the earth. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Who ever delivers this news to someone else, I will on the Day of Judgment make for him a place in Jannat (Heaven).”  If Allah (swt) fulfill one’s Dua (prayer), that means He is making our Iman strong. If He fulfill one’s Dua (prayer) after sometime, that means He is checking his/her patients. If He doesn’t fulfill one’s Dua (prayer) at all, that means He is checking one’s Iman. However, that mean the person whose dua (prayers) weren’t answer, his/her prayers will be answered on the day of judgement.Therefore, my brothers and sisters no matter what happens always say “Allhamdullilah” show gratitude towards Allah (swt). He only knows what is best for his believers.

According to an Hadith, There are certain times when we make Dua (pray), it will be fulfilled by Allah (swt)


1. After Farz prayer (Namaaz)
2. Between Azan or Aqamat

3. At the time of Tahajjud
4. At the time of Rain
5. When we travel from one place to another
6. At the time of Iftar
7. Anytime in Friday prayer (Jummah)
8. In Shab-e-Qadar
9. While drinking Zam Zam (Holy water)
10. The day of Arafat in the ground of Arafat (Maidan-e-Arafat)
11. After reading Quran.

    As salam alekum!

    Till the sun rises from the West. So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: (As Allah said,) ‘No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good (by deeds of righteousness) through its Faith.’ (6.158) (Bukhari 9:88:235)

    The hour will not be established till the sun rises from the West; and when it rises (from the West) and the people see it, they all will believe. And that is (the time) when no good will it do to a soul to believe then.” Then he recited the whole Verse (6.158) (Bukhari 6:060:160)

    Quran [6:158] Are they waiting to see if the angels come to them, or thy Lord (Himself), or certain of the Signs of thy Lord! The day that certain of the Signs of thy Lord do come, no good will it do to a soul to believe in them then, if it believed not before nor earned righteousness through its Faith. Say: “Wait ye: we too are waiting.”

    Assalamu alaikum w.r.w.b.
    As “verychilli” asked, what is the source of this quote?
    I got it via email a few times, but it looks like a fabricated hadith?
