Adhan (Call to prayer) | Mishary Rashid Alafasy | Fajr | Maqam Hijaz ᴴᴰ

In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Azān is the first call to prayer. The Azan is uttered in a loud, albeit sweet melodious, voice to announce to the faithful that it is time for the Obligatory Prayer and to invite them to offer the prayers. Those who perform Azan are known as ‘Muedhin.’ The honour of being the first Muedhin goes to Bilal (ra), a black slave who converted to Islam. He had a very sweet, resonant and musical voice. He was appointed as Muedhin by the Prophet (saw). The appointment of a black slave as the first person to call Muslims for prayers, shows that in Islam all human beings are treated as equals. Rich or poor, black or white, short or tall – all are equal in the eyes of Allah. It is the piety of each individual that makes the difference.

  1. Remember when it says “There is no God but Allah” really it is saying “ There is no God but God” because “Allah” is not a name. It simply translates to “God” from Arabic to English. It even says “Allah” in the Arabic translation of the Christian Bible.

  2. This is a very beautiful Adhan that I heard very often when I had gone for Hajj in the year 2011, always wanted to know whose voice was this? It's Shaykh Mishary, Masha Allah you have a very beautiful voice

  3. Let s share rewards:

    1) SubhanAllah

    2) Alhamdulillah

    3) La ilaha illaallah

    4) Allahu Akbar

  4. تخيل كل حاجة كنت بحبها من الطقوس الدينية مش قادرة اعملها … لانى بالبحث عن السكينة بعيدا عن هذه البلد الحقيرة اللى اسمها مصر … حقيقة جدا بناسها …

  5. Bro, the “prayer is better than sleep” is not original. Do you know where that came from? Umair Ibn Khattab saw the original “come to the best of deeds” and didn’t like this as Jihad was the most important thing to him (he was trying to conquer lands) and this was saying come to prayer as that is the best of deeds. So he forbid this. Later on, he slept during the fajr prayer. His slaves tried to wake him up and one of them said to him, “Prayer is better than sleep.” He put this in the adhan

  6. You have to say this 5 times daily…Sunrise, High Noon, Mid-Day, Sunset and Nighttime. Your spelling of sucess is wrong…it should be success…there is no word sucess.

  7. Amazing and mesmerizing. I’m not muslin but the charm of these chants are absolutely captivating as all the Arabic expressions use to be. Hope this cultural heritage will last as most as possible. Peace on earth!

  8. I am a staunch hindu and believe anything that comes straight from heart has sincerity and hence soulful , pious. Loved it. I have 5 mosque around my home and never heard anyone one sing/recite like this. As non Muslim I do not know what requirements are for saying this, but in my opinion if someone like this person were to render with right acostics/volume will be very good idea and sure no one will have any issues with loud speakers. Excellent rendering sir!!! Have listened multiple times. May god bless.
