Hello every one. Salam wali qoom. lol, sorry if I spell like an idiot. Any ways! To the point! I need a translation of the Main prayer. You know, the one that calls every one to pray? Well if any one could possibly help me out on finding an english translated version of it, that would be great. But please, e-mail it to me at "mina5288@aol.com". Thank you all!

As salamu alaikum. Don't worry... translating one language into another can wreak havoc upon the original language... :)

Do you want the adhan (call to prayer) or the prayer itself? They're two different things, are different in Arabic, and thus, have two different translations. Please specify.

Muslims use the human voice to announce the times of prayer to the community. The adhan is the call to prayer itself, and the person who calls it is called the muadhan.
The following is the Arabic transliteration and the English translation of what you hear:

Allahu Akbar
Allah is Great
(said four times)

Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God (Allah).
(said two times)

Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
(said two times)

Hayya 'ala-s-Salah
Hurry to the prayer (Rise up for prayer)
(said two times)

Hayya 'ala-l-Falah
Hurry to success (Rise up for Salvation)
(said two times)

Allahu Akbar
Allah is Great
[said two times]

La ilaha illa Allah
There is no god except the One God (Allah)

For the pre-dawn (fajr) prayer, the following phrase is inserted after the fifth part above, towards the end:

As-salatu Khayrun Minan-nawm
Prayer is better than sleep
(said two times)
