[9] Azaan

Posted by Mohammad Afieq ibn Ismail on Sunday, February 28, 2010 | 0 comments


I miss to hear azaan here, how fortunate muslim who live in Malaysia rather than here, Moscow. Since my childhood, my father always remind me to respect azaan. One of the memory which remind him the most is whenever it's near Maghrib prayer, he will ask me to switch off the television then teaching me answering the azaan. Usually, the most common of all prayer calling is Maghrib because it's already dusk and almost night. the mothers will call upon their children to come home, take bath then get ready for Maghrib prayers. Really miss those moments.

Opps, i almost forget, for those who didn't know what is Azaan, i got the answer for you.


Defination of Azaan :

Azaan is the islamic call to prayer, recited by muezzin (chosen person at the mosque) from one of the mosque's minarets (in most modern mosques, electronic amplification aids the muadhan).Azaan is called out by the muezzin in the mosque, sometimes from a minaret, five times a day summoning Muslims for mandatory (fard) prayers (salah). There is a second call known as iqama (set up) that summons Muslims to line up for the beginning of the prayers.


Here the post from My Little Mosque and i like to highlight it.

"Talking about respecting Azaan, once I was watching Tele again with my friend, to be exact it was TV3. Suddenly the Zuhur Azaan was heard just for a moment, then he changed the channel. Oh, I believe many of you did the same thing, don't bluff! Suprisingly, it's hard for us to even hear Azaan for a while. Maybe we are used to it untill we dont bother anymore! Even worse, talking when the Muezzin called out Azaan! That is very rude. Just admit you do it too..no harm in confessing this! but please, is it so hard for people to shut up when you hear Azaan?! It is simple right? Respecting the National Anthem you may have, you even stand up, and sing along with proudness! How about Azan? Here is some suggestion of what you may do to respect Azaan : 1. For example, you are listening to your favorite song, then you heard Azaan at the same time. Stop listening your song, and listen for the Call just for a moment. 2. When having a discussion or simply a normal chit-chat, stop talking will you! 3. Don't ever ever complaint that Azaan is so disturbing, annoying, too loud and etc. Even my friend, a non-muslim who lives near the Surau doesn't complaint enough.. 4. Or even better, answer every verse of the Azaan. Upon forgetting how to answer it, simply read your Agama textbook, okay?"

Do you ever watch the miracle of Azaan? I guees you watch it, but still i really want to share with you, how miracle the calling to the prayers is non-stop for 24 hours through all over the world. From the azaan salat Subuh to the Isyaa' then continue back without stop. Try spend some time to watch it. Click HERE
