Chapter 15 - Concerning the athan (the call to prayer)


<<< Previous chapter Next chapter >>>


22 - "[One repeats just as the mu-athin (one who calls to prayer) says, except when he says : Ďcome to prayer, come to successí. Instead, one should say : ĎThere is no might nor power except with Allah.í].
"

لا حَـوْلَ وَلا قُـوَّةَ إِلاّ بِالله



L‚ hawla wa l‚ quwwata ill‚ bi-l-l‚hi.




23 - "And I too bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, and that Muhammad is His salve and Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as a Lord, and Muhammad as a Messenger and Islam as a religion."

وَأَنا أَشْـهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلـهَ إِلاّ اللهُ وَحْـدَهُ لا شَـريكَ لَـه ، وَأَنَّ محَمّـداً عَبْـدُهُ وَرَسـولُه ، رَضيـتُ بِاللهِ رَبَّاً ، وَبِمُحَمَّـدٍ رَسـولاً وَبِالإِسْلامِ دينَـاً



Wa an‚ ash-hadu an l‚ il‚ha ill‚ l-l‚hu, wahdahu l‚ sharÓka l‚hu, wa anna Muhammadan cabduhu wa rasŻluhu. RadÓtu bi-l-l‚hi rabban, wa bi-muhammadin rasŻlan, wa bi-l-isl‚mi dÓnan.




24 - "[One should then send prayers on the Prophet (saws) after answering the call of the mu-athin]."

.



All‚humma salli cal‚ sayyidin‚ Muhammadin wa cal‚ ‚lihi wa sahbihi wa sallim.




25 - "O Allah, Owner of this perfect call and Owner of this prayer to be performed, bestow upon Muhammad al-waseelah and al-fadeelah and send him upon a praised platform which You have promised him. Verily, You never fail in Your promise."

اللّهُـمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدّعْـوَةِ التّـامَّة وَالصّلاةِ القَـائِمَة آتِ محَـمَّداً الوَسيـلةَ وَالْفَضـيلَة وَابْعَـثْه مَقـامـاً مَحـموداً الَّذي وَعَـدْتَه [إِنَّـكَ لا تُـخْلِفُ الميـعاد



All‚humma rabba h‚dhihi d-dacwati t-‚mmati, wa s-sal‚ti-l-q‚'imati.¬ti Muhammadan al wasÓlata wa-l-fadÓlata, wa bcath-hu maq‚man mahmŻdan al-ladhÓ wacadtahu. [Innaka l‚ tukhlifu-l-mÓc‚d.]




26 - "[One should also supplicate for himself during the time between the athan and the iqamah as supplication at such time is not rejected]."

.

27 - "O Allah, distance me from my sins just as You have distanced The East from The West, O Allah, purify me of my sins as a white robe is purified of filth, O Allah, cleanse me of my sins with snow, water, and ice."

اللّهُـمَّ باعِـدْ بَيـني وَبَيْنَ خَطـايايَ كَما باعَدْتَ بَيْنَ المَشْرِقِ وَالمَغْرِبْ ، اللّهُـمَّ نَقِّنـي مِنْ خَطايايَ كَمـا يُـنَقَّى الثَّـوْبُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسْ ، اللّهُـمَّ اغْسِلْنـي مِنْ خَطايـايَ بِالثَّلـجِ وَالمـاءِ وَالْبَرَدْ



All‚humma bacid baynÓ wa bayna khat‚y‚ya kam‚ b‚cadta bayna-l-mashriqi wa-l-maghribi. All‚humma naqqinÓ min khat‚y‚ya kam‚ yunaqqa th-thawbu-l-abyadu mina d-danasi. All‚humma ghsilnÓ min khat‚y‚ya bi th-thalji wa-l-m‚'i wa-l-barad.
