The Use and Meaning of Adhan

In Islam, every Muslim is obligated to do the five daily prayers, or what we call Salat, where the Adhan functions as the announcement for the time of each prayer. An Adhan signifies that the time to do the previous prayer is over as we are entering the next prayer. Aside from that, Adhan is also used for calling Muslims (especially males) to do the Friday worship or what we call Jumu'ah, which should be done in Jemaah.

Usually, the Adhan is recited by the muezzin in every mosque. Adhan itself is an Arabic word that means "to listen", which also implies to the statement for Muslims for their faith and to do their daily prayers. Usually after an Adhan, an Iqama would be recited once it is time to start the Jemaah and to line up for the prayers.
