Adhan (call to prayer)

It is strongly recommended that wherever possible Muslims should offer their compulsory prayers in the mosque. To call Muslims to prayer, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) introduced the system of Adhan.

The person who gives the Adhan is called the Muazzin (Caller). While calling for prayer, he stands in the Minaret or in the courtyard of the mosque, facing the Qiblah (Direction, east) and raises his hands to his and calls out:

Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)
