When the Muâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;azzin calls out Azan, the angels also repeat; when he finishes, the angels keep asking the supplication of forgiveness for him up to the Judgment Day. The one who dies in the state of being a Muâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;azzin will not be tormented in his grave, and he remains safe from the agonies at the time of death, the hardness and narrowness of the grave. 0XODNKLVD]7DIVLU6XUDK<XVXIXO*KDQL 0XWDUMLPSS0DUND]XO$ZOL\D/DKRUH

Fourteen Madani Pearls of Azan 1. If the primary Jamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;at of five Fard 6alah including Jumuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ah is held in the Masjid at stipulated time, it is Sunnat-eMuakkadah to call out Azan for them, and its emphasis is like that of Wajib.

2. If somebody offers 6alah at home in the city, the Azan of the local Masjid will be enough but it is Mustahab to call out Azan. LELGSS

3. If somebody is out of the city or in a village, orchard or farm, the Azan of the city/village will be enough provided these places are near the city/village; but it is better to say Azan. However, if these places are not near, that Azan will not be enough. Here, nearness means that the voice of Azan (given in city/village) could reach there. )DWDZDHŐ&#x152;$ODPJHHUL SSYRO

4. If a traveller did not call out Azan or Iqamat or both, it is Makruh; if he calls out only Iqamat, there is no repugnance, but it is better to say Azan also, whether he is alone or with other companions. 'XUUH0XNKWDUPDŐ?5DGGXO 0XÎĽWDUYROSS

5. Call out Azan after the time has started. If it is called out before the time begins or if the time starts during the Azan, the Azan should be repeated in both the cases. Ő&#x152;$ODPJHHULYROSS The Muazzin should make a habit of ascertaining the timings of Salah with the help of timetable. At some places, the Muazzin starts calling out Azan before the time begins. It is a Madani request to the Imams as well as the Masjid committee to keep an eye on this matter. 9

For a pause between Durood Sharif and Azan, make the following announcement: ‘In the honour of Azan, stop talking and other activities and earn hoard of good deeds by replying to Azan.’

Then, call out Azan. Likewise, make the following announcement between Durood and Iqamat: ‘Make the intention of I’tikaf, if you have a mobile phone, please switch it off.’ I have made the Madani request of reciting Tasmiyah and Durood Sharif before Azan and Iqamat in the desire of earning perpetual reward.
