Who Read The Adhan For Imam Husayn (A)?

Assalamu alaykum, wa Rahmatu Allah. An interesting question: who was the Muadhdhin for Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, amongst his companions?

And normally there are two names that emerge, but before I even mention those two names, I think it's fundamental for us to stress on the greatness of the Muadhdhin within the religion of Islam.

Imam Zayn al-Abidin, alayhi as-salam, even has within Risalat al-Huquq: "The Rights of the One who calls you to Prayer" and unfortunately, I found that today in our communities, if you're sitting in a gathering and you ask someone, please recite the Adhan, people will look around at each other without anyone standing up to recite the Adhan.

That which can be recited within a minute, which was an honour for the companions and the family of Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, has now become something which people are not proud to come forward and recite; and many don't realise the amount of Thawab, and the amount of reward that one receives in calling people towards Salah. You have become an intermediary for people to communicate, to worship, to stand before their Lord.

On the way to Karbala, Hajjaj, the son of Masruq, was the Muadhdhin for the army of Imam al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, and he took this responsibility on board with honour and with dignity. But on the plains of Karbala, there is only one Ali al-Akbar. And he was the Muadhdhin and proud to be the Muadhdhin, who called people towards the message of the Lord and the way of the Prophet, peace be upon him and his family.

Wa as-salamu alaykum, wa Rahmatu Allah.
