The Mu'adhdhin will have Many Witnesses on the Day of Judgment

`Abdullah bin `Abdur-Rahman reported: Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) said to me:

"I see that you like living among your sheep in wilderness. So whenever you are with your sheep or in wilderness and you want to call Adhan, you should raise your voice because whoever hears the Adhan, whether a human or jinn or any other creature, will testify for you on the Day of Resurrection.''

Abu Sa`id added: " I heard this from the Messenger of Allah [may the Salat and Salaam of Allah be upon him].''

Commentary from Salah hu deen Yusuf al Bakistani via darrus-salam edition : Shayun is used for everything, or every other thing, and covers animals, vegetables and inanimate matter. On the Day of Requital, Almighty Allah will grant the faculty of speech, and all these things will testify for the Mu'adhdhin, as would be done by mankind and jinn.
