Why Pronounce Adhaan Loudly? (Hadith No. 583)


Using loudspeakers to pronounce the Adhaan apparently benefits those sitting at home, informing them about the time of prayer. Ever wonder what benefit the mu’adhin (the one calling to prayer) gets out of it?

Volume 1, Book 11, Number 583:

Narrated ‘Abdul Rahman:

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri told my father, “I see you liking sheep and the wilderness. So whenever you are with your sheep or in the wilderness and you want to pronounce Adhan for the prayer raise your voice in doing so, for whoever hears the Adhan, whether a human being, a jinn or any other creature, will be a witness for you on the Day of Resurrection.” Abu Said added, “I heard it (this narration) from Allah’s Apostle.”

Beautiful! Even the person who is out alone in the desert looking after his sheep is being encouraged to pronounce Adhaan before performing his prayer. And with that, raise his voice so that he can have as many witnesses to his Adhaan as possible – from among men, jinn or any other creatures. Those witnesses will benefit the mu’adhin on the Day of Judgement. Then what about the person who calls to prayer and his voice spreads throughout a mile or two’s radius with the help of a loudspeaker? Only Allah can count the number of witnesses to his Adhaan. SubhanAllah! Can there be a better reward for him other than this? :)
