A Brief Account of the Virtues of Adhan, Wudhu and Siwak

Adhan

  1. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Who gives a Call (Adhan) for the Congregational Prayer, his neck will be the longest on the Day of Judgment i.e. he will be a distinguish person” (Muslim - Babu Fadhlil Adhan).
  2. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Up to the place where the voice of Mua’dhdhin reaches, he is forgiven up to that place. Whosoever from the creatures of the world listens his voice, prays for his forgiveness” (Musnad Ahmad).
  3. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whosoever listens to the voice of a Mua’dhdhin including trees, stones, human and jinns will bear witness in his favor on the Day of Judgment” (Ibne Khuzaimah).
  4. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Who had called Adhan for 12 years, Jannah will become compulsory for him, Insha Allah” (Hakim).
  5. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “a Mua’dhdhin will be in complete tranquility on the Day of Judgment, and he will not be accounted rather he will be on the hillock of the Mushk for his amusement” (Tirmizi, Tabrani, Majmauz Zawaed).
  6. The Holy Prophet said, “Whoever recites the supplication of Adhan after hearing it, the intercession of the prophet (PBUH) will become compulsory for him” (Bukhari - Babud Du’a).
  7. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, ”Who did Wudhu (Ablution) in the best way i.e. taking care of the prescribed guideline of Wudhu (Abolition), his smaller sins will come out of his body till it will come out from under his nails also (Muslim).
  8. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “When a believer makes Wudhu, and during it he rinses, all the smaller sins of the mouth are washed out. When he clears his nose then all the smaller sins of nose are washed out. When he washes his face then all the smaller sins of the mouth are washed out till it comes out from under the eye lashes also” (Nasai).  
  9. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “My Ummah will be called on the Day of Judgment while their hands legs and face will be brighter as these are washed in the course of Wudhu” (Bukhari – Babul Wudhu).
  10. The holy Prophet said, “The ornaments of Muslims will reach up to where the water of Wudhu reaches on the Day of Judgment i.e. he will be worn ornaments up to which of his body the water of Wudhu reaches (Muslim Babu Taballughil Hilyah).
  11. The holy Prophet said, “Whoever makes Wudhu taking care of its guidelines and recited this Dua:اللهم لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له وأشهد أن محمدا عبده ورسوله اللهم إجعلني من التوابين وإجعلني من المتطهرين All the 8 Doors of Jannah will be opened for him to enter it from any of them (Muslim).
  12. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whoever makes Wudhu while, his earlier Wudhu is intact gets ten blessings”. This can be done in this way that, one makes Wudhu and offered Maghrib Salah at its time, now he has to offer Isha Salah, it will be better for him to make his Wudhu anew, though his earlier Wudhu is intact (Abu Dawood – Babur Rajul Yujaddidul Wudhu).  
  13. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Using Miswak (Mouth cleansing stick) is Sunnah of all the Prophets” (Tirmidhi, Babu Ma Jaa’a fi Fadhlit Tarweej).
  14. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Misiwak is a tool of cleansing the mouth and a source of obtaining the pleasure of Allah” (Nasai – Attargheeb Fis Siwak).
  15. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “Offering two Rak’at of Salah after using Miswak is better from 70 Rak’at offered without using Miswak” (Bazzaz, Majmauz Zawaed - Chapter of Siwak).
  16.  It is narrated whenever the Holy Prophet (PBUH) would get up from sleep either in the day or night, he would use Miswak before making Wudhu (Abu Dawood - Babus Siwak liman qama billail).
  17. When the Holy Prophet (PBUH) would get up for Tahajjud first of all he would use Miswak. Similarly, after entering into his house, first of all he would use Miswak (Muslim – Babus Siwak).
