Narated By Anas : 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 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).

Narated By Ibn ‘Umar : 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 was the first to suggest that a man
should call (the people) for the prayer; so Allah’s Apostle ordered Bilal to get up and pronounce the Adhan for
prayers.

Narated By Anas : Bilal was ordered to repeat the wording of the Adhan for prayers twice, and to pronounce the

the Iqama once only.

Narated By Abu Huraira : Allah’s Apostle 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.”

Narated By ‘Abdul Rahman : Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri told my father, “I see you liking sheep and the wilderness. So

witness for you on the Day of Resurrection.” Abu Said added, “I heard it (this narration) from Allah’s Apostle.”

Narated By Humaid : Anas bin Malik said, “Whenever the Prophet 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 added, “We reached Khaibar at
night and in the morning when he did not hear the Adhan for the prayer, he (the Prophet) rode and I rode behind
Abi Talha and my foot was touching that of the Prophet.

The inhabitants of Khaibar came out with their baskets and spades and when they saw the Prophet they shouted
‘Muhammad! By Allah, Muhammad and his army.’ When Allah’s Apostle 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.”

mahmudan-il-ladhi wa’ adtahu (O Allah! Lord of this perfect call (of not ascribing partners to You) and of the regular

him (on the Day of Judgment) to the best and the highest place in Paradise which You promised him)’, then

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 Zuhr 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.”

—————————————–
Narated By ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud : The Prophet 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) 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). 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).

stay with them and teach them (the religion) and to order them to do good things. He also mentioned some other

journey.”
