We came to the Prophet and we were young men nearly
of equal ages and we stayed with him for twenty nights.
Allah's Apostle was a very kind man and when he realized
our longing for our families, he asked us about those
whom we had left behind. When we informed him, he said,
"Go back to your families and stay with them and teach
them (religion) and order them (to do good deeds). The
Prophet mentioned things some of which I remembered and
some I did not. Then he said, "Pray as you have seen me
praying, and when it is the time of prayer, one of you
should pronounce the call (Adhan) for the prayer and the
eldest of you should lead the prayer. "
Volume 9, Book 91, Number 353:

Suhur for he pronounces the Adhan in order that whoever
among you is praying the night prayer, may return (to
eat his Suhur) and whoever among you is sleeping, may
get up, for it is not yet dawn (when it is like this)."

Ka'ba (at Mecca).

towards the heaven; surely we shall turn you to a prayer
direction (Qibla) that shall please you.' (2.144) Thus
he was directed towards the Ka'ba. A man prayed the 'Asr
prayer with the Prophet and then went out, and passing
by some people from the Ansar, he said, "I testify. that

and my son should receive one-hundred lashes and be
sentenced to one year of exile.' The Prophet said, "By
Him in Whose Hands my life is, I will judge between you
according to Allah's Book (Laws): As for the slave girl
and the sheep, they are to be returned; and as for your
son, he shall receive one-hundred lashes and will be
exiled for one year. You, O Unais!" addressing a man
