One of the most popular aspects of Islam is the Adhaan, or the
Islamic call to prayer. Even though most non-Muslims may not know what
the words mean, they almost certainly would recognize the sound.
Wherever one is in the world, the Azaan is a sign of the presence of
Islam and Muslims.
In addition to the Islamic prayer, the call to prayer is one of the most distinguishable aspects of Muslim culture.
But what is the history behind the Adhaan? Did it begin with Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) or was it introduced by one of the earlier
Prophets of Allah?
