Azaan- A Miracle!

Azaan a miracle? Yes!

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 … Sumatra then follows suit and before this auspicious process of calling Azaan ends in Indonesia , it has already begun in Malaysia .

Burma is next in line, and within an hour of its beginning in Jakarta, it reaches Dacca, the capital city of Bangladesh . After Bangladesh , it has already prevailed in western India , from Calcutta to Srinagar . It then advances towards Bombay and the environment of entire India resounds with this proclamation. Srinagar and Sialkot (a north city in Pakistan ) have thesame timing for Azaan. The time difference between Sialkot , Quetta , and Karachi is forty minutes, and within this time, Fajar Aazaan 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 (Holycities 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 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 the Eastern Shore of the Atlantic Ocean after nine and half hours.

Prior to the Aazaan reaching the shores of the Atlantic, the process of ‘Zohar Azaan’ has already started in east Indonesia , and before it reaches Dacca , Asr 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 Aazaan’ 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. Subhaan Allah !!!

Even as you read this post right now, you can be sure there is Azaan
somewhere !!!

    SubhanAllah, absolutely amazing! Whenever I hear the azaan, specially when the rest of the surroundings is quiet, it gives me so much peace from within. I just can’t describe it in words.

    How many people follow these Azans? is the next question dear

    It is common that every religion has the same sort of explortion do some thing like how many of us are amidst followers [True Followers]

    Thank You for visiting my blog, friend, I will be glad to know if you have any idea to do *some thing*. I believe religion shouldn’t be compare on the followers. It’s up to the followers what they follow and abide, I had just put this post to explore one of the quality of Azaan without bothering how many of us follow it and I don’t have to 🙂

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
