Adab Mendengar Azan
Diriwayatkan sebuah hadis yg bermaksud: “Hendaklah kamu mendiamkan diri ketika azan, jika tidak Allah akan kelukan lidahnya ketika maut menghampirinya.”Ini jelas menunjukkan, kita disarankan agar mendiamkan diri, jangan berkata apa-apa pun semasa azan berkumandang. Sebagai orang beragama Islam kita wajib menghormati azan. Banyak fadhilatnya. Jika lagu
kebangsaan kita diajar agar berdiri tegak dan diamkan diri.
Mengapa ketika azan kita tidak boleh mendiamkan diri? Lantas sesiapa yang berkata-kata ketika azan, Allah akan kelukan lidahnya ketika nazak. Kita takut dengan kelunya lidah kita semasa ajal hampir tiba maka kita tidak dapat mengucap kalimah “Lailahaillallah..” yang
mana sesiapa yang dapat mengucapkan kalimah ini ketika nyawanya akan dicabut Allah dgn izinNya menjanjikan syurga untuk mereka. Dari itu marilah kita sama-sama
menghormati azan dan mohon kepada Allah supaya lidah ini tidak kelu semasa nyawa kita sedang dicabut.
Amazing as it sounds, but fortunately for the Muslims of the world, it is an established fact. Have a look at a map of the world and you will find Indonesia on the eastern side of the earth. The major cities of Indonesia are Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Saibil.
As soon as dawn breaks on the eastern side of Saibil, at approximately 5:30 am local time, Fajar Azaan begins. Thousands of Muazzins in Indonesia begin reciting the Azaan. The process advances towards West Indonesia . One and a half hours after the Azaan has
been completed in Saibil, it echoes in Jakarta .
After Bangladesh , it has already prevailed in western India , from Calcutta to Srinagar . It then advancestowards Bombay and the environment of entire India
resounds with this proclamation. Srinagar and Sialkot (a city in north Pakistan ) have the same timing for Azaan. The time difference between Sialkot , Quetta ,and Karachi is forty minutes, and within this time, Fajar Azaan is heard throughout Pakistan .
Before it ends there, it has already begun in Afghanistan and Muscat . The time difference between Muscat and Baghdad is one hour. Azaan resounds during this one hour in the environments of Hijaaz-e-Muqaddas (Holy cities of Makkah and Madinah), Yemen ,United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iraq .
The time difference between Baghdad and Alexandria in Egypt is again one hour. Azaan continues to resound in Syria , Egypt , Somalia and Sudan during this hour. The time difference between eastern and western Turkey is one and a half hours, and during this time it is echoed with the call to prayer.
Alexandria and Tripoli (capital of Libya ) are located at one hour’s difference. The process of calling Azaan thus continues throughout the whole of Africa . Therefore, the proclamation of the Tawheed and Risaalat that had begun in Indonesia reaches theEastern Shore of the Atlantic Ocean after nine and half hours.
Prior to the Azaan reaching the shores of the Atlantic , the process of Zohar Azaan has already started in east Indonesia , and before it reaches Dacca , Asar Azaan has started. This has hardly reached Jakarta one and half hours later, the time of Maghrib becomes due, and no sooner has Maghrib time reached Sumatra , the time for calling Isha Azaan has commenced in Saibil!
When the Muazzins of Indonesia are calling out Fajar Azaan, the African Muazzins are calling the Azaan for Isha.
If we were to ponder over this phenomenon thoughtfully, we would conclude the amazing fact that there is not even a single moment when hundreds of thousands of Muazzins around the world are not reciting the Azaan on the surface of this earth. Even as you read this aterial right now, you can be sure there are atleast thousands of people who are hearing and reciting the Azaan!!!
Allah said, “If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you.”
“Yes, I love Allah. Allah is my fountain of Life and My Savior. Allah keeps me going day and night. Without Allah, I am no one. But with Allah, I can do everything. Allah is my strength.”
