Book Name:Pait ka Qufl e Madina
Ażān is uttered, for Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has rendered Sunan-e-Ĥudā (Sunnaĥ of guidance) as Mashrū’ for your Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and Ṣalāĥ with Jamā’at is also one of the Sunan-e-Ĥudā. If you offered Ṣalāĥ at your homes like the one who stays behind and offers in his house, you would leave the Sunnaĥ of your Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and if you left the Sunnaĥ of your Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, you would go astray. (Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim, vol. 1, pp. 232, Ḥadīš 257)
The foregoing Ḥadīš implies that the one who offers Ṣalāĥ with Jamā’at will die with faith, whereas the one who misses the first Jamā’at of Masjid without the permission of Sharī’aĥ is in the danger of losing his faith at the time of death. Those not offering Ṣalāĥ with complete Jamā’at because of sheer laziness should pay attention to the following saying of A’lā Ḥaḍrat Imām-e-Aĥl-e-Sunnat Maulānā Ash-Shāĥ Imām Aḥmad Razā Khān عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـرَّحْمٰن. He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said that it is stated in Al-Baḥr-ur-Rāiq with the reference of Quniyyaĥ that if someone kept waiting for Iqāmaĥ to enter the Masjid having heard Ażān, he would be a sinner. (Fatāwā Razawiyyaĥ (Jadīd), vol. 7, pp. 102), (Al-Baḥr-ur-Rāiq, vol. 1, pp. 604)
On the same page it is also mentioned that if a person hears Ażān and waits at his house for the Iqāmaĥ, such a person’s testimony is unacceptable. (Al-Baḥr-ur-Rāiq, vol. 1, pp. 451)
Dear Islamic brothers! According to some jurists, the testimony of those who do not arrive in the Masjid until the time of Iqāmaĥ is not acceptable, in addition to him being a sinner. So what would be the condition of those who offer their Ṣalāĥ without Jamā’at or with Jamā’at at home without a valid reason or do not offer their Ṣalāĥ at all!
