- When the Adhaan for Salat is pronounced, shaitan (the devil) takes to his heels
- When the Adhaan is finished, he returns.
- When the Iqamah is announced, he turns his back, and after it is finished, he returns again to distract the attention of one and makes him remember things which he does not recall in his mind before the Salat, and
- Shaitan says ‘Remember this, and this,’ and thus causes one to forget how many Rak’at he performed
- What should one say when he or she hears the adhaan?
