    nice forward I got..


    Azaan: , the sound of which constantly echoes around the globe. Amazing
    though it sounds, but fortunately for the Muslims of the world, it is an
    established fact. Have a look at a map of the world and you will find
    Indonesia (an Islamic country) right on the eastern side of the earth's
    central land mass. Indonesia consists of numerous small islands, the
    principle ones amongst them being Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Saibil, all of
    which are well known. It is the largest country in the world, with 180
    million inhabitants. The number of non-Muslims here is negligible. As soon
    as dawn breaks on the eastern side of Saibil, at approximately 5:30 am
    local time, Fajar Azaan begins.

    The process then continues and advances towards the Western Islands of
    Indonesia. The AZAAN time difference between the eastern and western
    islands of Indonesia is one and a half hours. Hence, one and a half hours
    after the Azaan has been completed in Saibil, it echoes in Jakarta on Java
    Island. Sumatra then follows suit and before this auspicious process of
    calling Azaan ends in Indonesia, it has already begun in Malaysia. Burma
    is next in line, and within an hour of its commencement in Jakarta, it
    reaches Dacca, the capital city of Bangladesh. No sooner the calling of
    Adaan ends in Bangladesh, it has already prevailed in western India, fromCalcutta to Srinagar. It then advances towards Bombay and the environment
    of entire India resounds with this proclamation. Srinagar and Sialkot (a
    city in north Pakistan) have the same timing for Azaan. The Azaan time
    difference between Sialkot, Kota, Karachi and Gowadar city in Baluchistan,
    and a
    province of Pakistan) is forty minutes, and within this time, Fajar Azaan
    is heard throughout Pakistan. Before it ends there, however, it has already
    begun in Afghanistan and Muscat. The time difference between Muscat and
    Baghdad is one hour. Azaan resounds during this one hour in the
    environments of Hijaaz-e-Muqaddas (Holy cities of Makkah and Madinah),
    Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iraq. The time difference between
    Baghdad and Alexandria in Egypt is again one hour. Azaan continues to
    resound in Syria, Egypt, Somalia and Sudan during this hour. Alexandria and
    Istanbul are situated on the same geographical longitude. The time
    difference between eastern and western Turkey is one and a half hours, and
    during this time it is echoed with the call to prayer. Alexandria and
    Tripoli (capital of Libya) are located at an hour difference from one
    another. The process of calling Azaan thus continues throughout the whole
    of Africa. This had begun in the eastern islands of Indonesia reaches the
    Eastern Shore of the Atlantic Ocean after nine and a half hours. Prior to
    the Azaan reaching the shores of the Atlantic, the process of Zohar Azaan
    has already commenced in eastern Indonesia, and before it reaches
    Dacca, Asar Azaan has started. This has hardly reached Jakarta one and half
    hours later, and then the time of Magrib becomes due, and no sooner has
    Magrib time reached Sumatra, then the time for calling Isha Azaan has
    commenced in Saibil! When the Muezzins of Indonesia are calling out Fajar
    Azaan, the Muezzins in Africa are calling out the Azaan for Isha.

    If we were to ponder over this phenomenon seriously and studiously, we
    would conclude the amazing fact that there is not a single moment when few
    thousands if not hundreds of thousands of Muezzins around the world are not
    proclaiming the Oneness of Almighty Allah and the Apostleship of the noble
    Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam
    Saints are fine for Heaven, but they are hell on earth.
