The adhan (Arabic: أَذَان [ʔaˈðaːn]), also written as adhaan, azan , azaan, or athan, also called ezan in Persian, Urdu, and Turkish, among other languages, is the Islamic call to prayer , recited by a muezzin at prescribed times of the day.
Muezzin , Arabic muʾaddin, in Islam, the official who proclaims the call to prayer (adhān) on Friday for the public worship and the call to the daily prayer (ṣalāt) five times a day, at dawn, noon, midafternoon, sunset, and nightfall.
Place your head, knees and hands on the floor. While “sujood” (prostration) make sure that your forehead and nose touch the ground. This is the position called “sajdah.” When you are positioned fully, say Subhanna Rabbiyal A’laa (Glorious is my Lord, the most High) three times.
The first of the five calls to prayer happens just before sunrise (usually around 5am) and the last between sunset and midnight (usually after 9pm).
Pronounce it “ash-hadu ana Mu-ha-mud-ar rah-sool all-ah”. Call Hayya ‘alasalah (حي على الصلاة) twice. This means, “Come to prayer .” Pronounce it “hey-ah-‘alas sal-ah”. Say Hayya ‘alal falah (حي على الفلاح) two times.
Firstly, one should reply to the words what the Muazzin speaks out. Secondly, one should respond to Azan by taking part in prayers. Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (Ra.) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (Pbuh) said, “Whenever you hear the Azan , say what the Muazzin (caller) is saying.” (Sahih Bukhari & Muslim).
There is thus a long period of time within which this prayer can be offered, but people usually make their prayer within two hours after the Azan has been announced from Mosque.
The Hearer should Say after Hearing Adhan : Wa anaa ‘ash-hadu ‘an laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ‘anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasooluhu, radheetu billaahi Rabban, wa bi-Muhammadin Rasoolan wa bil’islaami deenan.
You can pray in any language, in any time and place. However formal or ritualistic prayers are performed in Arabic. We offer 5 mandatory prayers every day. In those prayer you have to recite verses from the Quran , which must be memorized and recited in Arabic.
The basic forms of prayer are adoration , contrition , thanksgiving and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S. The Liturgy of the Hours, the seven canonical hours of the Catholic Church prayed at fixed prayer times, is recited daily by clergy, religious and devout believers.
God ordered Muslims to pray at five set times of day: Salat al-fajr : dawn, before sunrise. Salat al-zuhr : midday, after the sun passes its highest. Salat al-‘asr : the late part of the afternoon. Salat al- maghrib : just after sunset. Salat al-‘isha : between sunset and midnight.
Prayers are supposed to be performed five times daily: at dawn (the Salat Ul Fajr), midday/noon (the Salat Ul Zuhr), mid- afternoon (the Salat Ul Asr), sunset (the Salat Ul Magrib), and nightfall (the Salat Ul Isha), and can last up to a half an hour.
The Fajr prayer (Arabic: صلاة الفجر ṣalāt al-faǧr, “dawn prayer “) is one of the five mandatory salah ( Islamic prayer ). As an Islamic day starts at sunset, the Fajr prayer is technically the third prayer of the day. If counted from midnight, it is the first prayer of the day.
The azan is the commencement of prayers time if you are alone or in a jamath it’s not impossible to say your salat, you should recite the azan then the iqamat and then say your prayers , provided the time has commenced, otherwise your prayers are not valid they would become nafl prayers of the previous time.
