Athan and Iqamat for newborns in Islam.

Athan and Iqamat for newborns in Islam.

1. Until now, the Muslim Ummah has been accustomed to call and iqamat guidance for newborns. Adhan in the right ear and left ear Iqamat.
Not many people know that the traditions on which the guidance is da'eef hadith, hadith even more strongly suspected mawdlu hadith (false).

Not to mention, the function of the adhan and iqamat was questioned, if it is used to welcome the birth of a baby?, Authentic Hadith mentions that the Adhan and iqamat, serves as notification of incoming prayer time.

2. Al-Quran suggests that guidance to welcome the baby is born, the sentence was read out isti'adzah. God is mentioned in Surah Ali Imran (3) paragraph 36 the following:
فَلَمَّا وَضَعَتْهَا قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّي وَضَعْتُهَا أُنْثَى وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا وَضَعَتْ وَلَيْسَ الذَّكَرُ كَالْأُنْثَى وَإِنِّي سَمَّيْتُهَا مَرْيَمَ وَإِنِّي أُعِيذُهَا بِكَ وَذُرِّيَّتَهَا مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيم

3. The above verse is confirmed by two hadith of the Prophet. The first of Ibn Abbas, Bukhari Muslim history, the second Hadith Bukhari from Abu Hurairah. The hadiths are:
3.1. Bukhari-Muslim:
عن ابن عباس قال كان رسول الله {صلى الله عليه وسلم} يعوذ الحسن والحسين أعيذكما بكلمات الله التامة من كل شيطان وهامة ومن كل عينٍ لامة ٍ ويقول إن أباكما كان يعوذ بها إسماعيل وإسحاق

3.2. Bukhari:
عن أبي هريرة أن النبي {صلى الله عليه وسلم} قال ما من مولود إلا والشيطان يمسه حين يولد فيستهل صارخاً من مس الشيطان إياه إلا مريم ثم يقول أبو هريرة اقرءوا إن شئتم ( وإني أعيذها بك وذريتها من الشيطان الرجيم )

4. Basically Adhan readings, and iqamat, and reading isti'adzah, contains sentences of God, when it was recited to the baby becomes a good prefix to knock the "consciousness" of communication. The difference isti'adzah guidance supported by verses of al-Quran and Hadith shaih, while the Adhan guide - iqamat was problematic.

Similarly, articles, Athan and Iqamat for newborns in Islam, may be useful for you.
