Competing the righteous
1 Competing the righteous even to draw lots so as to raise the Athan
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
"If people came to know the blessing of calling Adhan and standing in the first row, they could do nothing but would draw lots to secure these privileges."
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
