Aadaab at the time of calling out the azaan:

7. Call out the azaan in a loud voice.

عن عبد الله بن زيد رضي الله عنه قال … فأخبرته بما رأيت فقال إنها لرؤيا حق إن شاء الله فقم مع بلال فألق عليه ما رأيت فليؤذن به فإنه أندى صوتا منك (سنن أبي داود #499)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zaid (radhiallahu ‘anhu) reports … “I then informed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) about the dream I had seen (and the manner of calling out the azaan that I was taught in the dream). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Certainly it is a true dream Insha Allah. Stand up with Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and tell him the words of azaan you had heard in your dream, so that he may call out the azaan with these words, since his voice is louder than yours.”

عن عبد الرحمن بن عبد الله بن عبد الرحمن بن أبي صعصعة الأنصاري ثم المازني عن أبيه أنه أخبره أن أبا سعيد الخدري قال له إني أراك تحب الغنم والبادية فإذا كنت في غنمك أو باديتك فأذنت بالصلاة فارفع صوتك بالنداء فإنه لا يسمع مدى صوت المؤذن جن ولا إنس ولا شيء إلا شهد له يوم القيامة قال أبو سعيد سمعته من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم (صحيح بخاري #609)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan bin Abi Sa’sa‘ah relates that on one occasion, Hazrat Abu Sa‘eed Khudri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to him, “I see that you like being with your livestock (i.e. grazing them) in the open fields. When you are amongst your livestock or in the open fields and the time of salaah comes and you wish to call out the azaan, then you should raise your voice and call out the azaan, for certainly jinn, human or any other creature that hears the voice of the muazzin as far as it reaches will testify on his behalf on the day of Qiyaamah.” Hazrat Abu Sa‘eed (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says that I heard this from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

8. Call out the azaan slowly and pause after reciting each portion of the azaan.

عن جابر رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لبلال إذا أذنت فترسل وإذا أقمت فاحدر واجعل بين أذانك وإقامتك قدر ما يفرغ الآكل من أكله والشارب من شربه والمعتصر إذا دخل لقضاء حاجته ولا تقوموا حتى تروني (سنن الترمذي #195) [1]

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) saying, “When you call out the azaan, then call it out with tarassul (gradually with pausing after each sentence), and when you call out the iqaamah, then call it out quickly, and allow so much of time between your azaan and iqaamah that a person who is eating can complete his food, and the one who is drinking can finish his drink, and the person who has a need to relieve himself can do so, and do not stand up (to call out the iqaamah) until you see me.”

9. The words of the azaan should not be distorted. [2]


[1]وقال (الترمذي) : لا نعرفه إلا من حديث عبد المنعم وهو إسناد مجهول قال الحافظ في هداية الرواة : ضعيف

[2]( ولا لحن فيه ) أي تغني بغير كلماته فإنه لا يحل فعله وسماعه كالتغني بالقرآن وبلا تغيير حسن (شامي 1/387)
