Important Points Regarding Person Who Echo Adhan and Iqamah

Islamic Rule: Important Points Regarding Person Who Echo Adhan and Iqamah ~ Hi all readers! In the previous article I explained about the important points that must be considered by people who lead prayers or people who lead a mosque. Well, in this article I will explain about the important points that must be considered by those who echo adhan and iqamah. In Islamic teachings there are certain rules that must be considered about adhan and iqamah. So, both must not be done without sufficient knowledge.

As always, before I speak further, I will quote the two hadith that are specifically related to our discussion. Pay attention!

عَنْ جَابِرٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لِبِلَالٍ : إِذَا أَذَّنْتَ فَتَرَسَّلْ ، وَإِذَا أَقَمْتَ فَاحْدَرْ وَاجْعَلْ بَيْنَ أَذَانِكَ وَإِقَامَتِكَ مِقْدَارَ مَا يَفْرُغُ الْآكِلُ مِنْ أَكْلِهِ . الْحَدِيْثُ رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Jabir radliyallaahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam has said to Bilal, “If you proclaim Adhan, then say it with tartil (good and unhurried reading). If you say Iqamah, then speed up. Make it between your adhan and iqamahmu, there is a time if people are eating out of their meal.” This hadith is narrated by at-Tirmidhi.

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : لَا يُؤَذِّنُ إِلَّا مُتَوَضِّئٌ . رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallaahu anhu, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “It is not permissible to say adhan except those who have ablution (a holy person).” (This hadith is narrated by at-Tirmidzi).

Four; People who echo adhan and iqamah are recommended in a holy state (having wudu).
