Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "
Were people
to know the blessing of pronouncing Adhan and the standing in the first row, they would even draw lots to secure
these privileges. And were they to realize the reward of performing Salat early, they would race for it; and were they
to know the merits of Salat after nightfall (`Isha') and the dawn (Fajr) Salat, they would come to them even if they
had to crawl
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This expression '
to crawl
' is used to illustrate the high merit of praying `Isha and Fajr in congregation
in the mosque. This Hadith also urges to make best to occupy the first rows, as the `Angels of Mercy' pray for the
Imam first, then for those who pray immediately behind him in the first row, then those behind them, and so on. The
Hadith also points out the excellence of Adhan and the great reward of the person who pronounces it.

Mu`awiyah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: "
Mu'adhdhinun (callers to prayer) will have the longest necks on the Day of Resurrection
This Hadith highlights the eminence of Mu'adhdhin and Adhan. Adhan means calling people to the
worship of Allah. Mu'adhdhin (
the caller
) gets reward for the Salat of all those who hear his Adhan. The phrase "
have the longest necks
'' has been given different interpretations. One of them is that they are those who long for the
Mercy of Allah more than anyone else. Another interpretation is that their necks will grow longer on the Day of
Requital and so sweat will not reach them, for every one will sweat on that day depending on his deeds: sweat will
reach up to one's ankles or knees or waists. In the case of some people, sweat will reach up to their mouths. Another
interpretation is that those who call Adhan will have an honourable and great status on the Day of Requital.

`Abdullah bin `Abdur-Rahman reported: Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) said to me: "
see that you like living among your sheep in wilderness. So whenever you are with your sheep or in wilderness and
you want to call Adhan, you should raise your voice because whoever hears the Adhan, whether a human or jinn or
any other creature, will testify for you on the Day of Resurrection
.'' Abu Sa`id added: "
I heard this from the
Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
Shayun is used for everything, or every other thing, and covers animals, vegetables and inanimate
matter. On the Day of Requital, Almighty Allah will grant the faculty of speech, and all these things will testify for
the Mu'adhdhin, as would be done by mankind and jinn.
