>> AZAN: THE AMAZING PHENOMENON
>> Amazing as it sounds, but fortunately for the Muslims
>> of the world, it is an established fact. Have a look
>> at a map of the world and you will find Indonesia on
>> the eastern side of the earth. The major cities of
>> Indonesia are Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Saibil.
>> As soon as dawn breaks on the eastern side of
>> Saibil,at approximately 5:30 am local time, Fajar
>> Azaan begins. Thousands of muazzins in Indonesia begin
>> reciting the Azaan. The process advances towards West
>> Indonesia. One and a half hours after the Azaan has
>> been completed in
>> Saibil, it echoes in Jakarta. Sumatra then follows
>> suit and before this auspicious process of calling
>> Azaan ends in Indonesia, it has already begun in
>> Burma is next in line, and within an hour of its
>> beginning in Jakarta, it reaches Dacca, the capital !
>> city of Bangladesh. After Bangladesh, it has already
>> prevailed in western India, from Calcutta to Srinagar.
>> It then advances towards Bombay and the environment of
>> entire India resounds with this proclamation.
>> Srinagar and Sialkot (a city in north Pakistan)have
>> the same timing for Azaan. The time difference between
>> Sialkot, Quetta,and Karachi is forty minutes, and
>> within this time, Fajar Azaan is heard throughout
>> Pakistan. Before it ends there, it has already begun
>> in Afghanistan and Muscat. The time difference between
>> Muscat and Baghdad is one hour.
>> Azaan resounds during this one hour in the
>> environments of Hijaaz- e-Muqaddas (Holy cities of
>> Makkah and Madinah), Yemen, United Arab Emirates,
>> Kuwait and Iraq. The time difference between Baghdad
>> and Alexandria in Egypt is again one hour. Azaan
>> continues to resound in
>> Syria, Egypt, Somalia and Sudan during this hour. The
>> time difference between eastern and western Turkey is
>> one and a half hours, and during this time it is
>> echoed with the call to prayer.
>> Alexandria and Tripoli (capital of Libya) are located
>> at one hour's difference. The process of calling Azaan
>> thus continues throughout the whole of Africa.
>> Therefore, the proclamation of the Tawheed and
>> Risaalat that had begun in Indonesia reaches the
>> Eastern Shore of the Atlantic Ocean after nine and
>> half hours.
>> Prior to the Azaan reaching the shores of the
>> Atlantic, the process of Zohar Azaan has already
>> started in east Indonesia, and before it reaches
>> Dacca, Asar Azaan has started. This has hardly reached
>> Jakarta one and half hours later, the time of Maghrib
>> becomes due, and no sooner has Maghrib time reached
>> Sumatra, the time for calling Isha Azaan has commenced
>> in Saibil! When the Muazzins of Indonesia are calling
>> out Fajar Azaan, the African Muazzins are calling the
>> Azaan for Isha.
>> If we were to ponder over this phenomenon
>> thoughtfully, we would conclude the amazing fact that
>> there is not
>> even a single moment when hundreds of thousands of
>> Muazzins around the world are not reciting the Azaan
>> on the surface of this earth.
>> Even as you read this material right now, you can be
>> sure there are atleast thousands of people who are
>> hearing and reciting the Azaan!!!
>> Allah said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be
>> ashamed of you." If you are not ashamed, please send
>> this message...
>> "Yes, I love Allah. Allah is my fountain of Life and
>> My Savior Allah keeps me going day and night. Without
>> Allah, I am no one. But with Allah, I can do
>> everything. Allah is my strength."
>> Hamba Allah,
>> Allahu Akbar
