And before we offer salah, there is a call for prayer. And different religions have different way of calling people. For example, the Jews, they use the trumpet.

00:00:13--> 00:00:24

As mentioned the book of Numbers chapter number 10 was number one, two and three. The Lord spoke to Moses peace be upon him and told him to build two trumpets of silver and use it to call the assembly.

00:00:26--> 00:00:35

The Christians they use a church bell, some tribes, they use a drum. But we Muslims, we use the human voice. And this is called at the Adan

00:00:36--> 00:00:40

and the person who gives the Athan is called as a modern

00:00:41--> 00:01:01

and the human voice. It is far more melodious and soothing compared to the drums, the church bells and the trumpets, and it has a greater impact on the human mind. There are many non Muslims who have accepted Islam just by hearing the Adan. It had such a great impact on their minds that they accepted Islam.

00:01:02--> 00:01:29

But unfortunately, in Bombay, the advance there are not as melodious. They cause inconvenience rather than tranquillity. So I would request the Muslims in Bombay, that they should listen to the Adan of Missoula haram in Makkah. That is an example of how an adult should be like, and besides the other than being melodious and soothing, it carries a message, but many of the non Muslims did not understand the message of the Adan.

00:01:30--> 00:01:42

Many non Muslims say that you know, Emperor Akbar, he built so many monuments for the Muslims. And during the time of the Mughals. No wonder the Muslims they mentioned his name in the Adan five times a day.

00:01:44--> 00:01:48

Something just a joke, but many of the non Muslims did think like this.

00:01:50--> 00:02:03

And many of the non Muslims in the western movies, there is a person who's dressed up in the ark gown, who's a terrorist who's a villain and before he draws out the SWAT, he shouts Allahu Akbar, as if Allahu Akbar is a war cry.

00:02:05--> 00:02:14

So many non Muslims did not understand the mystery of the Athan. We need to explain to the non Muslims we need to give the translation of the adult to the non Muslims

00:02:17--> 00:02:29

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allah is the Greatest Allah is the Greatest. We are not praising Emperor Akbar. Oh, it is not a war cry. But we are saying that Allah is the Greatest

00:02:30--> 00:02:58

shadow Allah ilaha IL Allah, I bear witness that there's no one worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala I shall do under Muhammad Rasool Allah, I bear witness that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the Servant and Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala Hey Allah salah, come to prayer. Hey, Island fella, Come to success. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allah is the Greatest Allah is the Greatest La ilaha IL Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala.

00:03:00--> 00:03:10

So we should explain the translation of the Adan to non Muslims to those who are unaware of it. In fact, the Adan can be considered as a sign of unity.

00:03:11--> 00:03:25

Any Muslim from any part of the world from any nationality from any country when he hears the Athan he knows that it is trying to pray. In fact, the other 100 in Arabic can be considered as an international anthem of the Muslims.
