Nasihah (Advice): Virtue of the Sunnah Of Asr Salaah
Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Umar Radhiyallahu Anhuma reported: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “May Allah shower mercy on the person who performs four Rakaats before the Asr Salaah.” (Abu Dawud)
Question and Answer:
- With regards to the subject (of giving Azaan), the hadth mentions speaks only about men…. What about woman, is it a sin if we were to call the adhaan and iqamaah in a low voice in the presence of only woman, or people of our household e.g my younger brother etc….?
- Islam has not stipulated Azaan or Iqaamah for females. Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Umar Radhiyallahu Anhuma as well Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas Radhiyallahu Anhuma have stated, “There is no Azaan or Iqaamah for females.” (Sunanul Kubra, Musannaf Abdur Razzaaq)
Hence, females should simply perform their Salaah without Azaan or Iqaamah.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
