On hearing the Azaan

On hearing the Azaan

“Ashhadu an laa ilaha ill Allahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ashhadu anna muhammadan abdahu wa rasulahu wa ashhadu anna muhammadan abdahu wa rasulahu razitubillahi rabban wabi muhammadin rasulan wabil islamideenaa.”

(I testify that there is no one worthy of worship besides Allah. He is all by Himself and has no partner and I testify that Muhammad (S.A.W.) is His servant and Rasul. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, Muhammad (S.A.W.) as my Rasul and Islam as my Deen.)

Sa’ad bin abu Waqqas (ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, “He who says on hearing the Mu’adhdhin,  ‘And I too bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone, without any partner, and that Muhammad is His   slave and Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as a Lord, and Muhammad as a Messenger and Islam as a religion,’ his sins would be forgiven.” Sahih Muslim

After listening to the Azaan

“Allahuma rubba hadhihid-da’wati-tammati, was-salatil-qa’immati, aati Muhammadanil wasilatala wal-Fadilata, wab’athu maqaman mahumudan-illadhi wa-adtahu.”

(O Allah! Lord of this perfect call (of not ascribing partners to You) and of the regular Salat (prayer) which is going to be established! Kindly give Muhammad the right of intercession and superiority and send him (on the Day of Judgement) to the best and the highest place in Paradise which you promised him.)

Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (ra) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said: ‘Whoever after listening to the Adhan  says, “Allahuma rubba hadhihid-da’wati-tammati, was-salatil-qa’immati, aati Muhammadanil wasilatala wal-Fadilata, wab’athu maqaman mahumudan-illadhi wa-adtahu.” then intercession for me will be permitted for him on the Day of Resurrection.” Sahih al-Bukhari

The supplication made between the Adhan and the Iqamah

Anas (ra) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said:  A supplication made between the Adhan and the Iqamah is not rejected.” Abu Dawoud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nisai and Ibn Hibban.
