Islamic Call to Prayer – [Islam Calls You]

Adhan – The Call For Prayers
In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Adhan is the first call to prayer. The Adhan is uttered in a loud, albeit sweet melodious, voice to announce to the faithful that it is time for the Obligatory Prayer and to invite them to offer the prayers.

Those who perform Adhan are known as ‘Muezzin.’ The honour of being the first Muezzin goes to Hazrat Bilal, a black slave who converted to Islam. He had a very sweet, resonant and musical voice. He was appointed as Muezzin by the Prophet of Islam. The appointment of a black slave as the first person to call Muslims for prayers, shows that in Islam all human beings are treated as equals.

Rich or poor, black or white, short or tall – all are equal in the eyes of Allah. It is the piety of each individual that makes the difference.

Adhan is recited in a loud voice by the Muezzin facing the direction of the Ka’ba in the following words, which are said in the order mentioned:

Allahu Akbar” – recited FOUR times.

Meaning, “Allah is Most Great.”(four times)

Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill-Allah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshipped except Allah.”(twice)

Ash-hadu anna Muhammad-ar-Rasoolullah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “I bear witness that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah.”(recited twice)

Hayya ‘alas-Salah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “Come to prayer.”(turning the face alone to the right and saying it twice)

Hayya ‘alal-falah” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “Come to Success.”(turning the face alone to the left and saying it twice)

Allahu Akbar” – recited TWO times.

Meaning, “Allah is Most Great” (face back to front and saying it two times).

Morning (Fajr) Prayers

The following phrase is added after “Hayya ‘alal-falah” in the Azan of the early morning prayers:

As-salatu khairum minannaum” – recited Two times.

Meaning, “Prayer is better than sleep” (recited two times).

”La ilaha illallah” There is no deity except for Allah.

 

Someone from Switzerland was doing some research on Adhan and people behavior.. Have a look at the video below;

During Adhan, it is normally that people should stop on what they are doing,  hear the Adhan and prepare for prayer.

Have a look at the video below, originally made by my friends here in Oman Smile

Just as festivity becomes the atmosphere when the fast is broken each day at sunset, happiness becomes doublefold when the month of fasting is finally completed and the Eid Al-Fitr is celebrated.

The most elaborate dishes are served at large banquets to which relatives and friends are invited. These  colorful celebrations are the climax of the sense of fulfillment characterizing,a month of fasting and hardships, increasing the bonds of connectedness among humankind and between humankind and God.

Yesterday we could not sight the new Moon Crescent because it was impossible. As you see in the picture below, the Sun and Moon almost sets at the same time and the elevation is only 5 degrees.

May Allah accepts our fasting, prayers and bless us all. Ameen.

Part 1

 

Part 2

Click here for Arabic Translation 2nd part only

In part 2: I liked when he said: “ For those of you ask for signs have We not shown you enough already? look around you. look at the stars look at the sun and look at the water. these are the signs of the people of knowledge “.

He didn’t mention the verse.. but anyway the verse is @ Surah Al-Baqara Verse 164 >>> The Holy Qur’an

Looks he read a different English translation of the Qur’an. Because all translations are from different people.  Anyway Good point.

RAMADAN KAREEM

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim year which follows a lunar calendar. Each month begins with a sighting of the moon’s crescent and lasts 29 or 30 days until a sighting of the next month’s crescent.

The month of Ramadan commemorates the days when the Angel Gabriel imparted the wisdom of the Koran, Islam’s holy book, to the Prophet Mohammed.

It is during this month that Muslims fast. It is called the Fast of Ramadan and lasts the entire month. According to Sharia, or Islamic law, all adult Muslims must fast during the holy month. Only the sick, pregnant and nursing women, and travelers are exempt. This makes the fasting a worldwide phenomenon observed by the devoted among the world’s one billion Muslims as one international community.

 
 
During the Fast of Ramadan strict restraints are placed on the daily lives. Muslims are not allowed to eat or drink during the daylight hours. Smoking and sexual relations are also forbidden during fasting. At the end of the day the fast is broken with a meal called the Iftar. The fasting person must abstain from lying, cheating, argumentation, fighting, foul language and every sort of evil. These are considered offensive at all times, but are most offensive during the Fast of Ramadan.
 
 
During Ramadan, Muslims continue with their prayers five times a day, but after the night prayer is performed, a special prayer called Taraweeh is performed. This is a voluntary prayer that consists of reading the Quran during the time of Ramadan. The length of this prayer is usually 2-3 times as long as the daily prayers. In many mosques the whole Quran is read during Taraweeh prayers over the month. In some mosques it is read several times.
 
 
When Ramadan arrives, everybody congratulates his neighbors and relatives. You can see the happiness all over.

People start to prepare for Sohour (a very late meal before sun raise). Mostly Sohour contains Foul (Fava Beans), cheese, yogurt and bread. After Sohour some people wait until they pray Fajar then they go to work or go to sleep.
