The Athaan and Whoever Hears it (64)
The Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever after hearing the Athan says: "'Allãhumma rabba hãthihi 'adda`watit tãmmati, was-salãtil qã'imati, 'ãti muhammadan 'al waseelata wal fadheelata, wab`ath-hu maqãman mahmoodan 'allathee wa`adtahu(81),
intercession will be halal for him on the Day of Resurrection".

(81) O' my 'ilãh Lord of this perfect call [of not ascribing partners to You] and of the regular prayer which is about to be established! grant Muhammad the Waseelata [see hadeeth #55 above] and virtue, and send him [on the Day of Judgment] to the praised status which You have promised him.


Reported by 'Al-Bukhãri, and Al-Albãni said that Ahmad, and others also reported it. He also said that the addition wa-'addarajata ar-rafee`ata is not of the hadeeth even though it appears in some books as being traced back to 'Al-Bukhãri. As for the addition of innaka lã tukhlifu al-mee`ãd at the end of the hadeeth it appears in Sunan 'Al-Bayhaqi; however, it is deviant. This term is used when a report is by way of a reliable person; yet, contradicts the report of a more reliable person. This Al-Albãni pointed out in Takreej 'al-Manãr #24, and Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #57.
