Hadith on Prayer: Raise your voice in the call to prayer even if alone

December 29, 2017

Abdullah ibn Abdur Rahman reported: Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, said to him, “I see you love sheep and the desert. When you are among your sheep or in your desert and announced the call to prayer, then raise your voice with the call. Verily, the sound of the caller’s voice is not heard by any jinn, nor human, nor anything but that it will testify for him on the Day of Resurrection. I heard it from the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him.”

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ أَنَّ أَبَا سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيَّ قَالَ لَهُ  إِنِّي أَرَاكَ تُحِبُّ الْغَنَمَ وَالْبَادِيَةَ فَإِذَا كُنْتَ فِي غَنَمِكَ أَوْ بَادِيَتِكَ فَأَذَّنْتَ بِالصَّلَاةِ فَارْفَعْ صَوْتَكَ بِالنِّدَاءِ فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَسْمَعُ مَدَى صَوْتِ الْمُؤَذِّنِ جِنٌّ وَلَا إِنْسٌ وَلَا شَيْءٌ إِلَّا شَهِدَ لَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
