Comment

In my research I was unable to confirm the exact wording above in the references I had access to. The closest was the following (from “English Translation of Jāmi‘ At-Tirmidhī”. Compiled by Mohammad Ibn ‘Eisā At-Tirmidhi et al. Darussalam. Nov, 2007. Volume 6, Hadith #3451, pg 178)
TheWahyProject-Supplication-SightingNewMoon-34-0-CommentBut will defer to the references cited by Ref [1] below (“Fortress of the Muslim, Invocations from the Qur’an and Sunnah”) as they probably had access to more resources than available to me,

Ramadan 2015

Ramadan 2015 (1436)

Can you believe it, the year has flown past and Ramadan is upon us. Today (Thursday 18th June) is the first day of Ramadan (in many parts of the world including Saudi Arabia).

I humbly pray to Almighty Allah,

  • To give us the strength and guidance to worship him perfectly during this blessed month.
  • May Almighty Allah help and protect all who are in need (we are all in need) and suffering.
  • May Almighty Allah forgive our weaknesses and shortcomings and accept our fasting and good deeds during this most amazing month.

Ameen

Peace be with you … please remember us in your prayers

Adhan – How To Pronounce Correctly

Common Mistakes in Reciting the Adhan and a Guide to Pronouncing it Correctly

Here at the The Wahy Project, this past week the focus has been on the Adhan (& Iqama). So what better way to end the week off than a Guide on Pronouncing the Adhan correctly :). Alhamdulillah, I got a chance to sit down with my good friend Sheik Mamdouh and he provided an explanation of the common mistakes in pronouncing an Adhan and the correct way to pronounce each statement. Luckily I had my little audio recorder handy – so hope you enjoy listening to the Guide below (to help I have also highlighted the areas of common mistakes in red below).

Iqama

Second Call to Prayer

Iqama (or Iqamah) refers to the second call for the prayer that follows the first call (Adhan). Iqama means that the obligatory prayer in congregation is just to begin. It is to be recited in Arabic before every obligatory prayer. It is composed of specific words and phrases very closely related to the Adhan. The statements of the Adhan are recited reduced so that the statements that are expressed twice in the Adhan are recited once in Iqama except the last utterance of Allâhu-Akbar. The prayer is offered immediately after Iqama has been pronounced.


Note

  1. There are a number of variations of Iqama (which I have been advised are all accepted, though I have only verified the one presented in this Post). These include:
    1. Reciting the wording of a full Adhan with the addition of ‘Qad qāmatis-salāh’ (recited twice)
    2. Reciting the wording of a full Adhan with the addition of ‘Qad qāmatis-salāh’ (recited only once)
    3. Reciting the wording of a half Adhan with the addition of ‘Qad qāmatis-salāh’ (recited twice) – as presented in this Post
  2. Further examples of Iqama (audio from Makkah and Madina during Umrah & Hajj) can be found in my ‘Adhan Recordings’ post here
  3. The transliteration above may not provide an accurate guide on how to pronounce the Adhan correctly. InshAllah I will have another post shortly that covers this topic, but if you are not sure please consult a scholar for the correct pronunciation.
