It is Sunnah to repeat the adhaan word by word when you hear the Mu'adhin's voice because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: When you hear the Mu'adhin, repeat what he says word for word, then invoke Allah's Blessings and Peace upon me, for whoever invokes Allah's Blessings and Peace upon me (once), Allah will send His Blessings and Peace tenfold ...

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraktuh, Narrated Awn Ibn Abu Juhaifa "My father said, I saw Bilal turning his face from side to side while pronouncing the Adhan for the prayer."

According to the Shiite Jurisprudence, this sentence is not an obligatory part of Adhan but mustahab (recommended). However; it is now popularly used as a fixed part of Adhan recitation in most Shiite communities (sometime with variation). But so long as the added part is not considered an integral part of Adhan, it is considered a legitimate practice. The ...

It is not necessarily to be a quiet whisper, but it has to be recited through the right ear. And when you're done with adhan, recite the iqama through the baby's left ear. However, all hadeeths that talked about this matter are considered da'eef (weak), especially the part of iqama. See this https://youtu.be/vXD8qCtdLWo [Congrats btw :)]

All perfect praise be to Allah Yes this is the general issue. And i had discussed it with many people and al of them had same solution. Follow one azaan from start to end, answer that azaan and listen all other azaans with respect. This is the best way to deal with it. In hadees it states: إن الدين يسر religion is easy Although in the first place ...

I think you should go talk with those masajid imams about this issue too that why is this time difference. There can be one reason which i can understand is the jaafri fiqh(or shia) iftar 10 minutes late. But i don;t think azaan usually take 10 minutes anyway. Basically you are not supposed to iftar on azaan, but on timing calculated by credible sources for ...

The only point is that an imam would gain more rewards than anybody else if he lead the congregation in the best manner therefore it would be recommended for him to follow the sunnah of our prophet end leave other's perform adhan and iqamah to gain extra rewards. This fatwa ...

Loudspeakers can't be mandatory since they didn't exist in the time of the Prophet(p.b.u.h) in 600-700 CE. The Islamic traditional method of relaying the voice of the Imam to a large group of people is to have a human repeater. A little bit of trivia here is that when loudspeakers were initially introduced some scholars considered their use as impermissible ...

Well the ahadith about adhan and iqamah for the new born have many weaknesses, so especially for the iqamah some scholars tend to say the weakness is grave, and one shoould even consider this to be makruh or not mustahab (something not desirable) as quoted in this Arabic Fatwa. Some if not most scholars say that the first thing the new born should hear are ...

I think you can perform your prayer anywhere in the world as long as the place is clean and there is no visible picture or sculpture in the place. Just to clarify, Omar Ibn Farooq's family converted to Islam before he did and I am pretty sure they all performed their Islamic rituals even though the place technically belonged to Omar.

"Islam is the simplest of all religions and it poses no inconvenience in leading life according to its principle or practicing its rituals. Athough a Masjid (Mosque) is the formal place for offering Salah (Prayers), a Muslim can offer Salah (Prayers) anywhere. There is a Hadith (Saying of Muhammad S) that the entire earth is made for Muslims a ...

No, they aren't part of the Adhan. It is just sending blessings upon the Prophet after the Adhan. He says: "Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik" (O Allah bestow Your grace and peace and blessings) "ala sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘ala alehi" (upon our leader Muhammad and on his family) "wa sahaabahi ajama'in" (and the Companions, all of them). Absolutely ...

It depends, a Zaydi Shia is different from an Imami Shia who is different from an Ismaili Shia. And there are differences even among individuals. Depending on the Aqa'id of the imam, he may be considered a Kafir in Sunni Islam. If this is so then prayer behind him is invalid. I don't think that Azan effect validity of the prayer, though you may want to ...

Yes there were at least two -main- muadhins but no they were not calling for prayer simultaneously as clearly stated in the second hadith. The idea for the two adhans is that the first adhan for fajr is held before the time "Bilal pronounces the Adhan at night" so that people can wake up prepare themselves to go to the mosque etc. or as clearly described in ...

Allah (ﷻ) specifically pointed out that prayer has specified, fixed times (see verse below). That is where the great focus and emphasis on exact times comes from. Whether you use a clock to keep track of time or the sun, you're still trying to get the exact times and pray on time. Prayer outside of its time frame is rejected. Qur'an 4:103 فإذا قضيتم ...

As far as I know, you are not suppose to answer the Azan loudly while you are in the washroom or in a place where people relieve themselves. According to this answer to this similar question It is disliked to repeat the Azan while in the toilet according to the well-known opinion of the four Madhabs, because it contains remembrance of Allah. but it ...

Yes, there are other occasions for which Adhaan can be used. Adhaan was originally legislated to call people to prayer for the five obligatory prayers and the Jumu'ah. Another permissible occasion is upon seeing a spirit or apparition from the Jinn because of the hadith : When the Jinn try to mislead you (by taking different shapes), hasten to ...

Taharah (ritual purity) is not an obligation for making the adhan (call to prayer), but as with any act of worship it is recommended. Ref: http://islamqa.com/en/ref/20411

Your point is right about Adhan in different language to make other people understand but simple answer is NO we can't. Before we go to details, read this ayah. O you who have believed, do not violate the rites of Allah or [the sanctity of] the sacred month or [neglect the marking of] the sacrificial animals and garlanding [them] or [violate the ...

It's a kind of تلقین Talqin . Talqin means indoctrinate, drum into... It's mostly known to be done at the time death. As the person has just been placed into his grave and is now to be questioned about his life, wealth, youth, Imam, what he loved, his desires.

Loud speakers are used for convenience. Take a note, Without them the Imam had to put in a lot of effort to make his voice reach the last qatar of the mosque. For large congregational prayers Mukabbir (a person from the muktadi assigned to repeat the takbeers)can be assigned from the muktadi. But the problem is, not all the people who are attending the ...

Note that among the Ibadi madhhab there's a difference of opinion between the Ibadi's from al-Mashriq (for example 'Oman) and those from al-Maghrib. I found the following statement from a 'Omani site: The adhan of the Ibadi madhhab is more likely to that of the hanafi and shafi'i school Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar (2 times) الله أكْبَرُ الله أَكْبَرْ ...

If you are able to listen or hear the adhan you should follow it. Calculation methods have some inaccuracies (and the more you are far away from the "reference location" of the calculation the more inaccurate they are) and saddly most of the app's that you may find don't add the necessary information about which calculcation method is more recommended (...
