Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

I have heard that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) had four Muadhins. Can you please mention their names

 

Answer

‘Allamah Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullah) states that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) had appointed four Muadhins. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has also echoed similar sentiments.

1&2) Sayyiduna Bilal ibn Abi Rabah and Sayyiduna ibn Ummi Maktum (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) in Masjid Nabawi

3) Sayyiduna Sa’d Al Quraz (radiyallahu ‘anhu), the freed slave of ‘Ammar ibn Yasir (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) in Quba

4) Abu Mahdhurah Aws ibn Mughirah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) in Makkah Mukarramah

(Zadul Ma’ad, vol. 1 pg. 120, Fathul Bari, Hadith: 913. Also see: Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 408 and As Sunanul Kubra of Imam Bayhaqi, vol. 1 pg. 429)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
