(May Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace)

The Athaan (Call to Prayer)

1. Repeat what the Mu’aththin says, except for when he says:

 

حَيَّ عَلَى الصَّلاَةِ

 (hasten to the prayer)

 

وَحَيَّ عَلَى الْفَلَاحِ

 (hasten to salvation)

 

Here you should say:

لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ

 (There is no might and no power except by Allaah)

 

[from his heart, he will enter Paradise]

 

[Reference: Saheeh Muslim,  Al-Albaanee included this Hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #56]


2. The Messenger of Allaah (صلي الله عليه و سلم) said:

 

“Whoever after hearing the Athaan says:

 

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ، وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ، آتِ مُحَمَّداً الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ، وَابْعَثْهُ

مَقَاماً مَحْمُوداً الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ

 (O Allaah , Lord of this perfect call and established prayer. Grant Muhammad the intercession and favor, and raise him to the honored station You have promised him),

 

my intercession will be halal for him on the Day of Resurrection.”

 

[Reference: Al-Albaanee included this Hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #57]


3. It is reported by the way of ‘Abdillaah bin ‘Umar that a man said:

O Messenger of Allaah! The Mu’ath-thineen are of greater virtue than we are, so the Messenger of Allaah (صلي الله عليه و سلم) said:

“Say as they say, when you have finished, then ask and shall be granted it”.

 

[Reference: Abu Daawood.  Al-Albaanee included this Hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #58]


4. The Messenger of Allaah (صلي الله عليه و سلم) said: 

 

“Supplications are not turned down between the Athaan and the Iqaamah”

 

[Reference: Al-Albaanee included this Hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #59


5. The Messenger of Allaah (صلي الله عليه و سلم) said: 

 

“Two are not turned down, or are rarely turned down: 

supplications at the time of the call [to prayer],

and at war time when they entangle one another”.

 

[Reference: Abu Daawood.  Al-Albaanee included this Hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #60]
