The etiquettes of Azaan, Iqaamat & the Muazzin

  1. The Muazzin should be a pious, mature Muslim male who is knowledgeable in the laws of Shariah. (Fatawa Hindiya)
  2. The Muazzin should have a loud voice. (Mishkaat)
  3. The Azaan must be called from a high place. (Fatawa Hindiya)
  4. The Muazzin should stand while making Azaan. (BehishtiZewar)
  5. The Muazzin should clog his ears with his fingers Whilst making the call. (Fatawa Hindiya)
  6. One has to pause (at appropriate stages) when calling out the words of the Azaan. (Ibid)
  7. To turn to the right when calling out “HAYYA ALAS SAWLAAH ” and to turn to the left when saying “HAYYA ALAL FALAAH.” (Raddul-Muhtaar)
  8. To face the Qiblah when making the call of Azaan. (Ibid)
  9. The Muazzin should not be in state of uncleanliness (i.e. in need of Wudhu or ghusl). (Sharhut Tanweer)
  10. The wordings of Azaan and Iqaamat should be called in sequence. (Shami)
  11. When making the call of Azaan or Iqaamat the Muazzin should not indulge in any other conversation or talk (even if it should be answering a greeting). (Raddul Muhtaar)
  12. Should the Azaan or Iqaamat be called without the required intention, although such Azaan or Iqaamat is valid, it shall not merit any reward. One must therefore make the intention that one is calling Azaan to gain the pleasure of Allah. (Ibid)

The Sunnats of hosting a guest

  1. To respect and be hospitable to the guest.
  2. To arrange for his accommodation.
  3. To arrange for his comfort. Especially to show him the location of the lavatory upon his arrival so that he is not inconvenienced when the need arises.
  4. To present the guest with any time of food that is readily available immediately upon his arrival. Then, if expenses permit, one can make better arrangements later.
  5. One should not go beyond one's capacity when entertaining the guest.
  6. After placing the meal, note should be taken whether the guest is eating or not. If it is felt that the guest is hesitant, the host should try to remove the hesitancy by urging him to take more food and presenting the food before him.
  7. If more food is required, it should be brought in an another bowl/dish, leaving the original one for the guest to eat from.
  8. Entertaining the guest holds great value in Islam. Even if your guest is one who may have deliberately not hosted you previously, you should none the less leave no turn unturned in serving him too.
  9. As the guest departs, one should see him off at least to the door.
