Narrated by Yahya as above and added: “Some of my companions told me that Hisham had said, “When the Mu’adhdhin said, “Haiya alas-sala(t) (come for the prayer).” Muawiya said, “La hawla wala quwata illa billah (There is neither might nor any power except with Allah)” and added, “We heard your Prophet saying the same.”” (Sahih Bukhari, Book #011, Hadith #0587)

‘Abdullah b.

If anyone who asks that I be given the Wasila, he will be assured of my intercession.” (Sahih Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #0747)

Narrated by Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever after listening to the Adhan says, ‘Allahumma Rabba hadhihi-d-da’ watit-tammati was-salatil qa’imati, ati Muhammadan al-wasilata wal-fadilata, wab’ athhu maqaman mahmudan-il-ladhi wa’ adtahu (O Allah! Lord of this perfect call (of not ascribing partners to You) and of the regular prayer which is going to be established! Kindly give Muhammad the right of intercession and superiority and send him (on the Day of Judgment) to the best and the highest place in Paradise which You promised him)’, then intercession for me will be permitted for him on the Day of Resurrection).” (Sahih Bukhari, Book #011, Hadith #0588)

Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “If the people knew the reward for pronouncing the Adhan and for standing in the first row (in congregational prayers) and found no other way to get that except by drawing lots they would draw lots, and if they knew the reward of the Zuhr prayer (in the early moments of its stated time) they would race for it (go early) and if they knew the reward of ‘Isha’ and Fajr (morning) prayers in congregation, they would come to offer them even if they had to crawl.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book #011, Hadith #0589)

Upon this Abu Huraira said: This man has disobeyed abu’l- Qasim (Muhammad) (may peace be upon him).” (Sahih Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1377)
