During the adhan, Muslims should stop and listen. This is what is said in the adhan; the first phrase is said four times and the rest twice. Allahu Akbar – God is Great. Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah – I bear witness that there is no god except the One God.
Salat is the obligatory Muslim prayers , performed five times each day by Muslims .
The Azan ( Adhan in Arabic) is an Islamic call delivered by a muezzin (the person who recites the Azan ) from the mosque five times a day. The purpose of the Azan is to invite Muslims for obligatory (farz) prayers , the salat (or what is also called namaz in north India).
In Muslim countries, the call to prayer is broadcast throughout the city from the tops of minarets; in non- Muslim countries, as a courtesy to neighbors, it is chanted inside mosque walls. The call to prayer is not music , per se. Music is not allowed in the mosque.
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).
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.
The five daily prayers include: Fajr (sunrise prayer ), Dhuhr (noon prayer ), Asr (afternoon prayer ), Maghrib (sunset prayer ), and Isha (night prayer ). Each prayer has a specific window of time in which it must be completed.
It is interesting to note that the names of the ritual prayers are related to the times of the day that they are prescribed within,which are: Fajr or Subuh (dawn), Zuhr (afternoon), ʽAsr (late afternoon), Maghrib (just after sunset) and Isha (night).
Prayer Times in United States(null) United States Today are Fajar Time 05:54 AM, Dhuhur Time 12:35 PM, Asr Time 03:49 PM, Maghrib Time 06:14 PM & Isha Time 07:16 PM.
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.
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.
At the moment of birth , many Muslims speak the words of the Adhan (the call to prayer) in the ear of the baby so that the call to serve Allah is present from the start of the child’s life.
Typically in modern times, this is done using a microphone: a recitation that is consequently broadcast to the speakers usually mounted on the higher part of the mosque’s minarets, thus calling those nearby to prayer . However, in many mosques, the message can also be recorded .
The Fajr prayer (Arabic: صلاة الفجر ṣalāt al-faǧr, “dawn prayer “) is one of the five mandatory salah ( Islamic prayer ).
Allah is usually thought to mean “the god” (al-ilah) in Arabic and is probably cognate with rather than derived from the Aramaic Alaha. Arabic-speaking Christians call God Allah , and Gideon bibles, quoting John 3:16 in different languages, assert that Allah sent his son into the world.
