Hadith no: 627   Report Mistake   Permalink
Narrated / Authority of: Nafi
Abdullah bin Umar used to say: “When the Muslims arrived in Al-Madinah they used to gather and try to figure out the time for prayer, and no one gave the call to prayer. One day they spoke about that; some of them said: ‘Let us use a bell* like the Christians do;’ other said, ‘No, a horn like the Jews have.’ Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, said: ‘Why don’t you send a man to announce the time of prayer?’ The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: ‘O Bilal, get up and give the call to prayer.’” (Sahih) *An-Naqus: “It is an instrument made of copper or other than that, which is struck to ring.” Hadi As-Sari by Ibn Hajar. That is, a “bell”. Some of them - like An-Nawawi in his commentary on Muslim - followed the definition given by Ibn Al-Athir in An-Nihayah; that it is a long piece of wood which was struck by a smaller piece of wood.

Narrated / Authority of: Abu Mahdhurah
that the Prophet (saw) sat him down and taught him the Adhan letter by letter. (One of the narrators) Ibrahim said: “It is like this Adhan of ours.” I said:* “Recite it to me.” He said: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest), Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah (I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah) - twice, Ashhadu anna Muhammdan Rasulullah (I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah) - twice. Then he said in a lower voice which those around him could hear: Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah (I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah) - twice, Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah (I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah) - twice, Haya ‘ala as-salah (come to prayer) - twice, Hayya ‘alal-falah (come to prosperity) - twice, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, la ilaha illallah (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, there is none worthy of worship except Allah). (Hasan) Bishir bin Mu’adh who heard it from Ibrahim, and from whom An-Nasa’i is reporting it, is the one who is asking for the Adhan to be recited to him.

Hadith no: 633   Report Mistake   Permalink
Narrated / Authority of: Abdul Aziz bin Abdul Malik bin Abi Mahdhurah
that Abdullah bin Muhairiz - who was an orphan under the care of Abu Mahdhurah until he prepared him to go to Ash-Sham - informed him: he said: “I said to Abu Mahdhurah: ‘I am going to Ash-Sham and I am afraid that I will be asked about how you say the Adhan.’” He told me that Abu Mahdhurah said to him: “I went out with a group of people and we were somewhere on the road to Hunain when the Messenger of Allah (saw) was coming back from Hunain. The Messenger of Allah (saw) met us somewhere on the road, and the Mu’adhdhin of the Messenger of Allah (saw) called the Adhan for the prayer in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (saw). We heard the voice of the Mu’adhdhin, and we were careless about it (the Adhan), so we started yelling, imitating it and mocking it. The Messenger of Allah (saw) heard us, so he sent some people who brought us to stand in front of him. He said: ‘Who is the one whose voice I heard so loud?’ The people all pointed to me, and they were telling the truth. He sent them all away, but he kept me there and said to me: ‘Stand up and call the Adhan for the prayer.’ I stood up and the Messenger of Allah (saw) taught me the Adhan himself. He said: ‘Say: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar; Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah; Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah, Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah; I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah).’ Then he said: ‘Then repeat and say in a loud voice: ‘Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah; Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah, Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah; Hayya ‘alas-salah, Hayya ‘alas-salah; Hayya ‘alal-falah, Hayya ‘alal-falah; Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah (I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah; I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah; Come to prayer, come to prayer; Come to prosperity, come to prosperity; Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; there is none worthy of worship except Allah).’ Then he called me when I had finished saying the Adhan, and he gave me a bundle in which there was some silver. I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, let me be the one doing the Adhan in Makkah.’ He said: ‘I command you to do so.’ Then I came to ‘Attab bin Asid who was the governor of the Messenger of Allah (saw) in Makkah, and I called the Adhan for prayer with him upon the orders of the Messenger of Allah (saw).” (Hasan)

“When the Messenger of Allah (saw) left Hunain, I was the tenth of a group of ten of the people of Makkah who were trying to catch up with them. We heard them calling the Adhan for the prayer and we started to repeat the Adhan, mocking them. The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: ‘I heard among these people the Adhan of one who has a beautiful voice.’ He sent for us, and we recited the Adhan one by one, and I was the last of them. When I said the Adhan he said: ‘Come here.’ He sat me down in front of him and rubbed my forelock and blessed me three times, then he said: ‘Go and give the Adhan at the Sacred House.’ I said: ‘How, O Messenger of Allah?’ Hetaught me as you say the Adhan now: ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar; Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah; Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah, Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah; Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah; Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah, Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah; Hayya ‘alas-salah, Hayya ‘alas-salah; Hayya ‘alal-falah, Hayya ‘alal-falah; as-salatu khairun min an-nawm; as-salatu khairun min an-nawm (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah; I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah; I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah; Come to prayer, come to prayer; Come to prosperity, come to prosperity; prayer is better than sleep, prayer is better than sleep)’ - in the first (Adhan) for As-Subh (Fajr). And he taught me the Iqamah, saying each phrase twice: ‘allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, (Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar), Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah; Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah, Ashhadu anna Muhammad (SAW)an Rasulullah; Hayya ‘alas-salah, Hayya ‘alas-salah; Hayya ‘alal-falah, Hayya ‘alal-falah; qad qamatis-salah, qad qamatis-salah; Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar; La ilaha illallah (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest); I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah; I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah; Come to prayer, come to prayer; Come to prosperity, come to prosperity; the prayer is about to begin, the prayer is about to begin; Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; there is none worthy of worship except Allah).” (One of the narrators) Ibn Juraij said: “Uthman narrated this whole report to me from his father and from Umm ‘Abdul-Malik bin Abi Mahdhurah, and (said that) they heard that from Abu Mahdhurah.
