2. The Prophet’s Guidance Concerning the Adhaan and Its Words12
* He (Peace be upon him) would call out the adhaan13 with or without repetition. He (Peace be upon him) also pronounced the words of the iqaamah14 once or twice, except that he always repeated the words “Qad qamat is-salaah” (Prayer has begun) twice.

* He (Peace be upon him) ruled for his people that one who hears the adhaan should repeat the words after him, except for the words “Hayya `alas-salaah" and "Hayya `alal-falaah”, where one should say “La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaah." (There is no might and no power except through Allah.”

* He (Peace be upon him) also said, “Whoever hears the adhaan and then says: 'Ash-hadu anla ilaaha ill-Allah wa anna Muhammadan rasulullah. Raditu billaahi rabban, wa bil- Islami deenan wa bi Muhammadin rasulan' (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is His Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as Lord, Islam as religion and Muhammad as messenger) - whoever says that will have his sins forgiven."
12 Zadul-Ma`ad (2/355)
13 The call announcing that it is time for prayer.
14 A second call when the prayer is to begin.

* He (Peace be upon him) ruled that after repeating the words of the adhaan, one should invoke blessings upon the Prophet (Peace be upon him), saying: “Allaahumma rabba hadhihid-da`watit-taamma was-salaatilqaa'imati, aati Muhammadan al-waseelata walfadheelata, wab`ath-hu maqaaman mahmudan alladhi wa`adtah.' (O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and present prayer, grant Muhammad the waseelah (a position of intercession in Paradise) and excellence and elevate him [on the Day of Judgment] to the praised position, which You have promised him.)

* And he (Peace be upon him) stated that supplication between the adhaan and iqaamah would never be refused [by Allah].
