It’s the first thing recited in the ears of a newborn babe; it’s often the first thing recited in a new home. And it rings out in mosques, homes, and on the street etc. In five times a day. The adhan, or call to prayer, is an integral part of the faith.
The adhan is one of the most lyrical, inspiring prayers. A prophetic tradition recounts that the Muhammad’s companions one day were discussing how to gather everyone for prayer. Some suggested using a bell as Ch.ristians do, and others advised using a ram’s horn, following an ancient J.ewish practice. Meanwhile, two of the companions had dreams in which they were taught the adhan. Hence, it was decided that one person will call others to prayer. The Prophet, peace be upon him (pbuh), asked his ex-slave, Bilal, to recite the adhan.
The Arabic text of the adhan is similar for all five recitations (with a slight difference in the adhan recited for the pre-dawn prayer, which adds the line “Prayer is better than sleep”).
