All about Adhaan, the Call to Prayer (Part 1)

أذان  Adhaan (Azaan) translated as ‘Prayer Call’ or ‘Call to Prayer’ originates from the Arabic root أذن adhina which means “to listen, to allow, to permit, to hear, to learn, to call, to announce, to make known, to inform, to notify, to call to prayer, to exhort, to urge, to herald”.

Adhaan is the perpetual International Anthem of Muslims. It is also Islam’s official Broadcasting Channel.

When will this mass slaughter stop?

At the outset, let me say that I do not intend to hurt or make fun of anyone. I am addressing this post to everyone’s reason and logic, and not to anyone’s emotions and sentiments. Thank you and Jazakallah Khayr.  

Al Qur’an is a Book whose first chapter begins in the name of Allah and the last chapter ends with seeking refuge in Allah. Between these two, flows life as such.

How fortunate are those Muslims who are able to read the Qur’an in an excellent manner. Also, how fortunate are those Muslims who are able to listen to the Qur’an being read in an excellent way.  Continue reading
