The Adhan for Subh

July 31, 2015 Comments Off on The Adhan for Subh

Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that the Muadhdhin came to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab to call him to the Subh {morning} prayer and found him sleeping, so he said:

“Prayer is better than sleep,” and ‘Umar ordered him to put that in the Adhan for Subh.

وَحَدَّثَنِي عَنْ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّهُ بَلَغَهُ أَنَّ الْمُؤَذِّنَ، جَاءَ إِلَى عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ يُؤْذِنُهُ لِصَلاَةِ الصُّبْحِ فَوَجَدَهُ نَائِمًا فَقَالَ الصَّلاَةُ خَيْرٌ مِنَ النَّوْمِ . فَأَمَرَهُ عُمَرُ أَنْ يَجْعَلَهَا فِي نِدَاءِ الصُّبْحِ

{Muwatta of Imam Malik ~ Book 3, Hadith #154}

~ May Allah be well pleased with them
