Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We accompanied the Prophet (PBUH) in a
journey, and when we climbed up a height, we proclaimed aloud: "La ilaha illallah (There is no true god except
Allah)'' and "Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest).'' The Prophet (PBUH) admonished us saying,
"O people, take it easy.
He Whom you are calling is not deaf or absent. He is with you (i.e., by His Knowledge), He is Hearing and He is
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith tells us that in the pronouncement of the fundamental testification of Islam: "La ilaha
illallah (there is no true god except Allah)''
- and His Magnification: "Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest)''
- the voices of the Companions became a bit louder during a journey. The Prophet (PBUH) disapproved of
it and commanded them not to put themselves to hardship by remembering Allah in a loud voice, and directed to do
that calmly in a dignified, low voice.
