A series of worksheets that establish some of Prophet Mohamed’s ﷺ Sunnah and encourage children to make a bit out of them.

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Repeating after the Mo’athin Sunnah is an act of worship and obedience that many people forget. It was mentioned in the hadith of Abu Saeed al-Khudri t, that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

“When you hear the Mo’athin (pronouncing the call to Salat), repeat after him what he says.” [Agreed upon].

It is nice to draw our children’s attention to this Sunnah, urging them to follow the guidance of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and to glorify of Allah’s commands.

It is a beloved Sunnah that could easily be done wherever they are…

How do we apply this Sunnah?

In a normal voice, we repeat exactly what the Moazen says in all verses except two: after “Hayy ‘AlasSalaah” and “Hayy ‘AlalFalaah”, we say “La Hawla Wala Quwwata Ila Billah” meaning “there is neither might nor power except with Allah”. This is because we believe we have no strength and nor power except if Allah ﷻ helps us… We worship Allah and we ask Him to help us worship Him…

If we are in the middle of something, such as playing or watching TV, we should stop for a moment to repeat behind the Moazen.

There are also some beautiful remembrances we could say after the call to prayer… These supplications connect us to our Prophet ﷺ; and they are:

Prayers for the Prophet ﷺ and asking Allah ﷻ to grant him Al Wasilah:

‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-‘As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah ﷺ saying, “When you hear the Athan, repeat what the Mo’athin says. Then ask Allah to exalt my mention because everyone who does so will receive in return ten rewards from Allah. Then beseech Allah to grant me Al Wasilah, which is a high rank in Jannah, fitting for only one of Allah’s slaves; and I hope that I will be that man. If anyone asks Al Wasilah for me, it becomes incumbent upon me to intercede for him.” [Muslim]

The best form of the Abrahamic prayer is:

Allāhumma ṣalli `alā Muḥammadinwa `alā ’āli Muḥammadin,

kamā ṣallayta `alā ‘Ibrāhīma wa `alā ’āli ‘Ibrāhīma, ‘innaka ḥamīdum-majīd.

Allāhumma bārik `alā Muḥammadin wa `alā ’āli Muḥammadin,

kamā bārakta `alā ‘Ibrāhīma wa `alā ‘āli ‘Ibrāhīma,

‘innaka ḥamīdum-majīd.

O Allah, bestow Your favour on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad as You have bestowed Your favour on Ibrahim and on the family of Ibrahim, You are Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.

O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You have blessed Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim, You are Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.

How do we ask Allah ﷻ to grant the Prophet ﷺ Al Wasilah?

Allāhumma rabba hādhihi ‘d-da’wati ‘t-tāmmah

waṣ-ṣalāti ‘l-qā’imah,

‘āti Muhammadani ‘l-wasīlata walfaḍīlata,

wab ‘ath-hu maqāma ‘m-mahmūdani ‘l-lathī wa`adtahu,

[‘innaka lā tukhliful-mī’ād]

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who says upon hearing the Athan: ‘Allahumma Rabba hathihid-da’wati-ttammati, was-salatil-qa’imati, ati Muhammadanil-wasilata wal-fadhilata, wab’athu maqaman mahmuda nillathi wa ‘adtahu [O Allah, Rubb of this perfect call (Da’wah) and of the established prayer (As-Salat), grant Muhammad the Wasilah and superiority, and raise him up to a praiseworthy position which You have promised him]’, it becomes incumbent upon me to intercede for him on the Day of Resurrection.” [Al- Bukhari].

The call to prayer is called twice… the first Athan is to inform people that the time for prayer has begun… and the second is to announce the standing and lining up for prayer. The second is called the Iqamah

There are a few minutes between these two calls to prayer, some of the best times of the day for supplications are answered, as the Messenger of Allah ﷺ told us:

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The supplication made between the Adhan and the Iqamah is never rejected.” [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].

We only repeat after the Mo’athin during the first call to prayer and not during the Iqamah

To sum it all up, make sure to apply this Sunnah as follows:

  1. When you hear the call to prayer (Athan), stop what you are doing for a few minutes to repeat behind the Mo’athin
  2. After Athan stops, take advantage of this time, and pray for our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and ask Allah ﷻ to grant him Al Wasilah
  3. Then make any Du’aa you like until the Iqamah is called
  4. Be sure to pray as soon as the time for prayer has begun! That is one of the most beloved deeds to Allah ﷻ
