Why Should It Be Beautiful?

• We love to hear soothing, relaxing, and beautiful tones.


• This is the law that Allah has created us with, if there is a displeasing sound that is heard in
our ear, we will suddenly try to avoid listening to it or if we have to listen to it whether we
like it or not, it will not go beyond the ears.
• If the Adhaan is beautiful, the person who rarely goes to the Masjid may go to Masjid
thereby getting an opportunity to get closer to other acts of Ibaadah.
• It’s one of the great alternative to Music. Something to keep humming, and hymning
during other times and keep getting reward at the same time for praising the name of
Allah S.W.T.
• Excellent Adhaan penetrates the hearts by which Muslim can have more interest in their
prayers.

Islam.
